* An early ''ComicBook/BlackOrchid'' story, in the days before her origin and secret identity had been established, seemed to reveal that "Black Orchid" was actually a team of around half a dozen women who took turns in the suit when their respective skills were called for. It turned out that these women were actually a collective IdentityImpersonator, and they were defeated in the end by the real Black Orchid.

IAmSpartacus - as a lifestyle. The inverse of the classical SecretIdentity. Rather than one character with multiple identities, sometimes authors will flip this around and have multiple people with one identity.

* In an old WesternAnimation/BugsBunny cartoon, ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tortoise_Beats_Hare Tortoise Beats Hare]]'', Bugs is wondering how it could be possible for the Tortoise to beat the Hare in Aesop's fables. As TheOtherWiki puts it, 'Bugs is left wondering if he's been tricked; then all ten turtles approach and reply, "Hmmm...eh, it's a possibility!"'

Added DiffLines:

** By the middle of season six, things are a ''bit'' clearer. There seems to have been one definitive "A" replacing the original, while another villain was killed whilst using the "A" identity. "Red Coat", who was assumed to be "A", turned out to be someone else entirely, except then "A" did start using the Red Coat identity, sharing it with one of her allies, with at least some agreement from the original Red Coat. Then the new "A", after apparently being cured, gets killed by, er, "A"?

* In the same vein as Deadpool, ComicBook/SpiderMan and ComicBook/CaptainAmerica are both working this shift post-''ComicBook/AvengersStandoff''. While Peter Parker and Miles Morales were always working together prior to the events, ''Standoff'' will have Steve Rogers return to his title as Captain America and allow [[ComicBook/TheFalcon Sam Wilson]] to continue to operate as Cap as well.

Downplayed in that none of them are pretending to be each other, they're just sharing the codename and the ideals it represents (which [[ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} Clint Barton]] and ComicBook/KateBishop have been doing for years now).
