* In ''Franchise/MassEffect'', there are several instances when [[PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard]] must resolve a situation by choosing between a clearly good Paragon option or a clearly evil Renegade option. In some of these cases, Shepard's two squadmates will offer their opinions on which option Shepard should choose with one squadmate supporting the Paragon option and the other supporting the Renegade option.

* In ''Franchise/MassEffect'', there are several instances when [[PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard]] must resolve a situation by choosing between a clearly good Paragon option or a clearly evil evil, or at least ruthlessly utilitarian, Renegade option. In some of these cases, Shepard's two squadmates will offer their opinions on which option Shepard should choose with one squadmate supporting the Paragon option and the other supporting the Renegade option. There is even a hierarchy in ''1'' to determine which character will support a given course - Kaidan will always support the Paragon option; Liara will support the Paragon option unless your other teammate is Kaidan; Tali will support the Paragon option unless your other teammate is either of the above; and so on down the line, until you get to Wrex, the most Renegade option available.

* The turn-based RPG iOS game Devil's Attorney, which centers around an attorney with little respect to the law or reality, at one point shows a tiny version of the hero in a devil costume floating over his left shoulder. When he looks to his right, a second, identical devil appears.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Afterlife}}'', an Angel and Devil appear on screen to give the player advice and to taunt each other. As with all religious elements in the game, it's parodied; the Angel is TheDitz, and the Devil is erudite and appears to be dressed in a business suit.

!!Straight Examples

* In ''VideoGame/AdventureQuestWorlds'', a thinly-veiled parody of Good Angel Bad Angel is represented by the "invisible" twins called Xing and Xang. Xing dresses like a complete EmoTeen and Xang dresses like a stereotypical angel. Their job is to "guide" the heroes, but they don't listen to advice in the cutscene [[spoiler:-- at least until EvilOverlord Drakath switches Xang with her ChaoticEvil twin in the Mirror Realm.]]
* In ''VideoGame/{{Afterlife}}'', an Angel and Devil appear on screen to give the player advice and to taunt each other. As with all religious elements in the game, it's parodied; the Angel is TheDitz, and the Devil is erudite and appears to be dressed in a business suit.
* The god game ''VideoGame/BlackAndWhite'' also has a Good and Evil Conscience (an old wise man and a wisecracking devil) to give the player advice and color commentary.
* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfKyrandia'': Malcolm's Revenge, the titular VillainProtagonist has both an evil conscience named Gunther and a good one named Stewart. The latter is crushed under a rock during Malcolm's childhood as part of his StartOfDarkness but returns in-game. Malcolm then asks the player to choose which one to stick with or to [[TakeAThirdOption choose]] [[BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil both]] since Malcolm himself doesn't care about morality, just wanting to [[ClearMyName Clear His Name]] so that he can finally go home and take a nap.
* A brief scene in the second ''SimonTheSorcerer'' game features this trope. Simon being [[JerkAss Simon]] opts to side with the bad angel.
* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect'', there are several instances when [[PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard]] must resolve a situation by choosing between a clearly good Paragon option or a clearly evil Renegade option. In some of these cases, Shepard's two squadmates will offer their opinions on which option Shepard should choose with one squadmate supporting the Paragon option and the other supporting the Renegade option.
* ''TheSuffering'' used a variation of this trope. When Torque is faced with a moral decision at some points, his wife Carmen acts as the shoulder angel and Torque's evil side acts as the shoulder devil. The sequel has Carmen act as the shoulder angel and Blackmore act as the shoulder devil. In both games, they do not actually appear at Torque's side at these points, but their voices can be heard.
* The preview trailer for ''VideoGame/InFamous 2'' has a scene where two female characters walking behind Cole are shown at an angle evoking shoulder angel and devil. Over his left shoulder is a biker girl egging him towards destruction while over his right is a federal agent urging him to restore order.
* [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 The Pyro]] has this as a Misc. Item: The Cremator's Conscience; they are in a chest pocket. Description: "'Burn him with fire!' 'No Burn him with fire, then hit him with an axe!'"
