* In the ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'' remake, Perseus is born as the result of Zeus disguising himself as King Acrisius and sleeping with his wife Danae. Just as the real Acrisius enters the bedchamber, Zeus changes back with a smirk, having done the deed, turns into an eagle and flies off. Danae ''immediately'' gives birth, and Acrisius kills her in a fit of rage. He's about to do the same to baby Perseus, but standing on a cliff in the middle of a storm and waving your sword around like a lightning rod (while screaming insults to the gods) is not a very good idea.

* In ''Comicbook/XFactor'', Multiple Man awakens one morning to find that one of his dupes got out accidentally and has been, uhm, enjoying himself. Later, Siryn and M separately tell him how wonderful the night before was, indicating that he slept with one while the dupe got with the other, pretending to be him. [[spoiler:It later turns out they ''both'' slept with dupes, and that a dupe managed to get Siryn pregnant.]]

Jamie and his dupes tend to get confused about who did what, since they're born with all his memories, and when he reabsorbs them, he remembers what they did as if he himself did it.
