* Itsuki in In ''FatalFrame II'' definitely counts, there's a ritual that, by default, produces these, since one twin must kill the other to appease the Hellish Abyss. Let's count the ways they produced Angsty Surviving Twins:

** Akane: so traumatized by her twin sister's death that her father made a doll that looked like Azami [[spoiler: which ended up possessed by a malevolent spirit and led to her own possession and death.]]
** The only surviving twin that ''isn't'' angsty is Ryokan, and that's likely because it was years since his twin's death, so he's likely come to terms with it by now.

-->'''Paula''': [''horrified''] You ''ate'' your ''twin''?
-->'''Rebecca''': [''rolls eyes''] I mean, medically speaking, I didn't "eat" it. I just metabolised its body parts for my own use.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': [[spoiler: Stanley Pines is one to his brother Stanford, doubly so considering he was (or at least considers himself) responsible for the accident that resulted in Stanford being sent to another dimension. Although he puts on a brave face and appears to be the wacky, money-hungry "Grunkle Stan" for most of the series, there are signs throughout the first season that Stanley was deeply affected by the loss of his twin, and he has in fact spent the last thirty years of his life trying to bring Stanford back (and he's eventually successful).]]
