* In ''LightNovel/MagicalGirlRaisingProject'', the Peaky Angel twins Minael and Yunael initially serve more as comic relief as they focus on being popular over helping people and complain about their leader. They do everything together and act the same. [[spoiler:When the fighting starts, Yunael is killed, leaving Minael mentally unhinged. She then employs ruthless pragmatism over fun when hunting her enemies until she's killed.]]

-->'''Belgarath''': "To this very day, if you're impolite enough to ask Polgara how old she is, she'll probably say something like, 'We're about three thousand- or so.' Beldaran's been gone for a long time, but she still looms very large in Polgara's conception of the world."

* Subverted in Creator/TimPowers' ''Literature/TheStressOfHerRegard''. Crawford's wife Julia - who was murdered very early on in the book - was survived by her twin sister Josephine. When Josephine was first introduced to Crawford before the wedding, it is clear that there is some physical similarity between the twins, but they are not confused with each other. In fact, Julia makes a point of mentioning that as a child, Josephine (TheUnfavorite) often pretended to be Julia, and that Julia eventually confronted and humiliated Josephine publicly to make her stop. After Julia's murder, Crawford is MistakenForMurderer and Josephine tracks him down.

* The Literature/SweetValleyHigh book ''The Wakefields of Sweet Valley'' includes the story of Jessamyn, the great-great grandmother of the twins featured in the main series, who never really got over the death of her own twin Elisabeth in a riding accident. To a lesser extent, Amanda (the Wakefield's great-great-aunt who's twin Samantha dies in childbirth) and Sarah (the great-great-grandmother on the other side of the family whose twin brother James dies of pneumonia) might also qualify.

* This is the subject of "After Iris", by Natasha Farrant - a video diary by a preteen girl set three years after her twin sister was killed in a traffic accident.
* The book ''Literature/IMissYouIMissYou'' opens with the character Tina telling the audience that her identical twin Cilla will soon die in a car accident and that this is not meant to be a surprising twist because the stoa cry is about Tina dealing with the loss of her sister.

** From IV: Kageri Sendou. After her twin sister's death, she "coped" with it by creating a life-sized doll in the image of said sister (which she named "Watashi"), treating it as if it were her sister for the rest of her life.

* ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'': In one version of the "burn the ships" incident, Amras, one of Fëanor's twins, is [[AccidentalMurder on the ships when his father burns them]]. His twin Amrod becomes this afterward. [[note]]This version doesn't appear in the published Silm, apparently because Tolkien changed his mind about it. Doesn't stop many fans accepting it as canon, though.[[/note]]

* In ''Theatre/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde'', Helen's twin sister died the year before the play's events, leaving her feeling as if half of herself had died. She has a mark on her neck that appeared after her sister's death, which is suggested to be a psychosomatic expression of her grief.

* The plot of [[Literature/IMissYouIMissYou I Miss You]] centers on this trope, as the movie follows 14 year old Tina whose identical twin Cilla is killed in a car accident.

* Itsuki in ''FatalFrame II'' definitely counts, to the point where he [[spoiler:helps Yae and Sae escape so as to not suffer his and his brother's fate, and then commits suicide once he thinks they've escaped.]] By the end of the game [[spoiler: Mio is, canonically, so traumatized by the death of Mayu]] it leads directly into the 3rd game's plot.

* 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:
** Itsuki:
to the point where he [[spoiler:helps Yae and Sae escape so as to not suffer his and his brother's fate, and then commits suicide once he thinks they've escaped.]] By the end of the game ]]
**
[[spoiler: Mio is, canonically, Yae: so traumatized by losing her sister (and the entire village) to the Repentance that she lost all her memories of them.]] A rare example that doesn't directly involve the ritual.
** [[spoiler: Mio: in the canon ending,
so traumatized by the death of Mayu]] it leads directly into the 3rd game's plot.plot, which deals with survivor guilt.
** 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.
