* Hansel and Gretel from ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' take this trope to [[UpToEleven a whole new level]]. While initially they are fairly distinctive (one is a boy, and one a girl) despite similar looks and personalities, it is later revealed that they [[spoiler:swap the roles of 'boy' and 'girl' around as they please; Hansel wears his sister's clothes, a long-haired wig (both the twins actually have short hair), carries her weapon, and takes on her voice and personality, while Gretel does the same with Hansel's personality. The twins' gender is never actually revealed, which just adds to the confusion.]] Not to mention they just ''love'' killing people, just because they can. They also like to "play" with their victims. Is it surprising that everybody in the anime compares them to the twins from ''Film/TheShining''? In the manga, "Gretel" even sings the tune that plays over ''Film/TheShining'''s end credits.
** They also actively practice {{Twincest}} and were made to work as underage porn stars in snuff films. It's highly suggested that they just... broke... as a survival mechanism.
** Not to mention their disturbing optimism which centers around the deaths of others, which they cling to even as [[spoiler:they die themselves]].
* The twin girls Xia Yu Fang and Xia Yu Lan from ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic The Second Raid''
** They were ''[[GenderFlip actually boys]]'' in the novel.

* Creator/DianeArbus made her most famous photograph of two identical twin girls who stare directly into the camera. One of them has a slight smile, the other a slight frown.

* In some instances, the creepy twin effect is caused by a split brain situation, where each twin has half of the same brain. Some examples include the film ''SlapstickOfAnotherKind'', and the movie ''The Nightmare Before Christmas''. It also occurs in the novel ''The Singers of Time'' due to a set of conjoined twins sharing one brain at birth, who are then separated.

* The Sisters of Orion of Adam R. Brown's ''{{Literature/Alterien}}'' series exemplify this trope. The Sisters release Oberon from captivity and summon him to them. He follows the voices of what he believes to be adult women only to discover they are young children no more than 6 years old. The creep factor is played up even further by the fact they each speak in a generally cold and emotionless tone.

Although casting twins on TV are rarely incidental, this is a specific non-comedic use of identical twins who tend to speak, move, and act in tandem just enough to weird out the audience. Usually relegated to villainous or morally ambiguous characters. They may even display an intense, [[{{Twincest}} very intimate fondness for each other]].

* The twins in the British comedy ''TheLeagueOfGentlemen'' who leave a man tied to a scarecrow, so they have someone to talk to. Their names are Chloe and Radclyffe Denton, they are implied to have PsychicPowers and OffscreenTeleportation, and they are [[DevilInPlainSight deceptively monstrous]].
** ''{{Spaced}}'' featured a pair of spooky twins in its first episode, but they were dropped after the writers discovered that ''The League Of Gentlemen'' has used the idea just before them.

* The twins April and June in the ''TalesFromTheCrypt'' episode "Split Personality". Let's see: Matching outfits? Check. Propensity to finish each other's sentences? Check. Spooky, unblinking, hollow-eyed stare? Check. Chainsawing a con man in half lengthwise --[[GroinAttack from the groin up]]-- so each one could keep half of him? Chec- actually, [[CruelAndUnusualDeath that last one goes well above and beyond the expectations of the trope]].

* Any of the Twins enemies in ''{{Persona3}}''. It's that rattling sound they make, and the fact that they're skewered together.
* ''FatalFrame 2''. Twins being a central theme and all, it was inevitable that there'd be one set that falls under this, and in this case it's the Kiryu twins. [[spoiler: Except 'Azami' is really a doll, who was made after the real Azami was sacrificed, and got possessed by an evil spirit who convinced Akane to kill.]] As for the other pairs of twins seen regularly, the Kurosawa twins and Amakura twins, most of the 'creepy' settles on one twin while the other becomes the OnlySaneMan.
* ''ValkyrieProfileCovenantOfThePlume'' has Mireille and Mischka, a pair of twins who enjoy slaughtering people, are part of a mercenary group and display very good fighting skill despite being only twelve.
