* Parodied in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEd92pIoBEo this]] CollegeHumor sketch, where the devil, the angel, and several other characters are trying to convince an UnluckyEverydude to put his tax refund or paycheck towards something else instead of his student loans, and to just default on those. Although they all have different reasons.

Moving misplaced examples.
* In the ''WhateleyUniverse'', Jade gives Ayla a literal pair of them as a prank... and thereby inspires other students to come up with their own more or less successful versions in turn. The whole thing escalates until the headmistress ends up banning them. * In ''Webcomic/{{Periodus}}'', the angel is a positron with a halo and the devil is an electron with horns [[http://periodus.thecomicseries.com/comics/pl/15945 (1)]]. They don't actually care what's going on; they just love to argue.

* Subverted on the "Give In" episode of [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/loadingreadyrun/3606-Give-In]]''loadingreadyrun'', when the main character is trying to decide if he should shoot someone, and [[spoiler: he goes ahead and shoots the guy before his good angel has a chance to give his point of view. The good angel is quite annoyed by this.]] * The [=AIs=] in ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' play with this trope -- there's (usually) only one of them to an individual, but they appear floating over the person's shoulder and exist to help and give advice. If you have a good one, great -- you don't have to worry about its evil counterpart undermining its efforts. Unfortunately, that same lack of symmetry means that if you get stuck with an evil one, you're pretty much hosed. ** Season 10 gives us an instance of "Bad Angel, Worse Angel" when Gamma and Sigma team up to dupe Carolina into [[spoiler:choosing to have two AI implanted into her]].

The guy on my right wears a suit and always reminds me how great of a tool Access is because it empowers small organizations to develop productivity and information systems. The other guy, sporting a "l337 h4x0r" tee and cut-off jeans, screams in my ear that "Access is a complete abomination" and that the tools to create applications should not be put in the hands of laymen."

* ''SFDebris'' gives [[StarTrekVoyager Janeway]] these. Befitting his interpretation of her as an insane tyrant, no angel appears. Instead she has a devil, whose advice she dismisses as "religious crap"; an atom, who can only offer suggestions about the behavior of atoms like combining to form a molecule or splitting to release energy; a cowboy, who is terrified and just wants to get out of there (i.e. away from Janeway); and a spider, who always recommends eating people. Initially she goes with shoulder cowboy and decides to leave, and later listens to the devil, who she mistakes for the cowboy because he's now wearing a cowboy hat.

* Website/CollegeHumor has a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUjuPh4jf-Y two-minute video]] where a guy named Chris begins to prepare to [[ADateWithRosiePalms masturbate]] after his roommate leaves. He begins to take off his shorts when his shoulder devil encourages him to jack off naked. When he starts taking his shirt off, his shoulder angel encourages him to keep his pants on in case his roommate returns earlier than anticipated. The conversation goes on until they hear a car pull up. The shoulder angel begs Chris to wait until later, but the shoulder devil gives a [[DownplayedTrope heart-warming speech]] about how there's not going to be a later. Chris starts taking off his clothes, [[spoiler: so does the angel]] and then his roommate walks in.

** In a later episode she decides to obey the spider, because it's now wearing the cowboy hat. No other advisers appear, suggesting the spider ate them all.
