* Marquis does this in ''FinalFantasyTacticsA2''. He splits himself into five, and strangely enough, all of them have differing abilities. His doppelgangers may know anything from a FlamingSword all the way to illusion magic that hits the whole field. This [[CutScenePowerToTheMax happens in a cutscene]], so you're effectively just fighting a group of ninja that all happen to share the same name.

* ''Machinima/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

* ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'''s Wraith can create a duplicate of itself using the Decoy ability, which is capable of attacking and teleporting just like the original. It will disappear after a few seconds, but during those few seconds it's extremely dangerous.

* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'''s Kaede Nagase, in addition to the usual illusionary swarm, when she limits her duplicates to four or so all of them are fully tangible and devastatingly effective combatants. Her student and main lead's [[TheRival Rival]] Kotaro has also shown to be proficient at it, though not to the extent of her ability. Oddly, Nagi, the DisappearedDad of series lead could do it, while not being eastern or showing any skill in ninjutsu. RuleOfCool indeed.

* The time-travel RTS ''{{Achron}}'' can be made to do this. A technique allows the DelayedRippleEffect to be Delayed permanently, so that your units can [[HelpYourSelfInTheFuture Help Themselves In The Future]] but never return to the past, without any nasty [[TemporalParadox paradoxes]]. Unfortunately, [[AwesomeButImpractical this requires so much time and concentration]] that it's easier to just [[BoringButPractical build new units]] if you need to.

* The Makuta Bitil from ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' wears a Mohtrek; or in layman's terms: A [[MaskPower Mask]] of Time Duplication. When mentally triggered it summons different versions of the user from different points in time into the present. These duplicates are just as strong as the original was or will be at that point in time. When dismissed, the duplicates will return to the very same moment they left, meaning that no one will have seen them suddenly vanish and reappear. They also lose their memory of what happened while summoned to avoid any whacky [[TemporalParadox time paradoxes]]. The downside? The summoned duplicates will return to their time with all the physical evidence of the summoning intact, meaning that if you get wounded, that wound will seem to have suddenly appeared on you somewhere in time. And if one gets killed... all version past that one [[MindScrew gets erased from time, as if they were never there]]. So a past version of you gets killed, and you cease to exist; even in the memories of those you were fighting, and all the people you have ever met. [[OhCrap Whoops.]]

* It seems like every wizard miniboss in ''BaldursGate'' fights with the mirror image spell, meaning you need to do at least one attack on him per image he creates before you can touch him again. All while he's launching off his own spells. The quickest way to strip this off of him is with a magic missile spell or two, but it's still massively annoying, especially if they use fear or charms on your party (which most do).
