Added DiffLines:

* Occurs in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', as [[PlayerCharacter Hawke's]] two younger siblings are twins, and one of them, which one depends on Hawke's class, ''will'' die in the prologue. Carver reacts more immediately, lashing out and trying to blame Hawke for it, which is [[BerserkButton probably the closest the two of them ever got to coming to blows]]. Bethany's reaction is more delayed; she's sad of course in the first act, but she gets more and more depressed over it as time passes. At the end of the game, seven years after Carver died, Bethany says her biggest regret is that she didn't knock Carver on his "stupid ass" before he could charge that ogre.

* ''VampireKnight'' turns this into a legend requiring one of the twins of hunters to "eat" the other. Usually, vampire hunter twins compete for nourishment in the womb and one is absorbed by the other, but in the rare occurrence that both are born, one will be fated to take the other's life and somehow absorb his energy. That's difficult to imagine until you take into consideration that Zero becomes a vampire in the story...and Ichiru does not.

* ''[[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/inochi/ Inochi]]'' by Reiko Momochi invokes this trope as an important base for its plot, as early as within the first two chapters. It is given that the twins, Nobara and Kotori, are identical to the point where not even their mother can tell apart their TwinSwitch moments; [[spoiler: unfortunately for Nobara, their last switch ends up getting Kotori kidnapped, killed, and [[ILoveTheDead posthumously raped]]. As a result, Nobara, due to circumstances, must continue to pretend to act as Kotori without getting found out. Cue {{angst}}.]]
