* In ''Manga/DragonBall'' and ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', both this and its sister trope, DoppelgangerSpin, appear occasionally. Some characters, like Tenshinhan/Tien, Piccolo, and Cell can divide their bodies into weaker physical copies to employ special fighting strategies. Piccolo also uses it to spar with himself when there's no suitably strong partner available.

** Sgt. Purple of the Red Ribbon Army subverts this; While he claims he can do this, he's actually part of a set of identical septuplets, who pretend to be this trope.

* Gruntilda in ''{{Banjo-Kazooie}}: [[RevengeOfTheSequel Grunty's Revenge]]'', after her Mecha Grunty suit is destroyed. Klungo also does it in ''Banjo-Tooie'' if he drinks the blue potion before the fight.

* Death Metal, the Rank 10 Assassin in ''NoMoreHeroes'', produces two doppelgangers when his health gets low enough. They have as much health as he does at that point, making finding the real one a bit of a chore.

* The cartoon-only villain Luminus from ''SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' originally used the DoppelgangerSpin, but never had the good sense to get away while the getting was good. Eventually he came up with HardLight versions of these that actually were a threat.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben10}}'' has an alien form called Ditto which can split itself into multiple copies, but was otherwise roughly equal to a human child. Its weakness was that all of its copies shared damage; if one was attacked, they all felt it. In ''Ben 10 Alien Force'', he gets a new form named Echo Echo, which has this power [[ComboPlatterPowers along with]] [[MakeMeWannaShout sonic attacks]] and minus the damage-sharing.

* One of Hanzo's special abilities in ''SamuraiWarriors 2'' allows him to create up to three shadow doppelgangers this way. Nene's ability might also count, although they move more like a [[DoppelgangerSpin spin]] (occupying the same space, instead of spread out like Hanzo's).

* RedVsBlue has this effect whenever there's a StableTimeLoop, usually surrounding Agent Wyoming. For Church, it allowed him to figure out the solution to the time bomb crisis. Wyoming had been using it for much longer, and knew ''how'' to use it. When Tucker told Church that Wyoming had been putting them through such a time loop, Church remembered his experience (and doppelgängers), and realized Wyoming must be using this trope. [[RightBehindMe Naturally, they collided with an army of Wyomings]] [[PlayedForLaughs two seconds later]].

* One of the defining characteristics of the Protopet in ''RatchetAndClank 2''. It can very quickly go from one, to seven, to forty two, and by the time you've killed half of them, the remaining half have probably already spawned the number back to it's upper limit.
