In any event in the land of fiction the notion of a ghost in the machine is not only dominant but often literally true. Of course, this might cause FridgeLogic issues when one asks oneself whether this "little person" needs to have an even smaller person inside them, leading to an infinite regress.

* In early episodes of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', Sakura had an "Inner Sakura" in her head. Inner Sakura was mostly just a device to let the audience know what Sakura [[InnerMonologue really thought of a given situation]], so there was no need for it once she became more assertive and outgoing. However, Inner Sakura did help her shake off Ino's mind control at one point, so whether it was an actual alternate personality or not is left up in the air.

Cartesian philosophy (flanderised by the pop culture -- consult TheOtherWiki) includes a notion that there is, in effect, a little guy [[HappyPlace inside your head.]] He sits on your [[PinealWeirdness pineal gland]] and works the controls that make your robot-like body move around, much like the pilot of a MobileSuitHuman. The little guy is the "real you", and he's a much deeper and more interesting guy than the physical "you" everyone else gets to see, mostly because the human body has lousy User Interface design. The term was actually coined as a criticism of Cartesianism by the British philosopher Gilbert Ryle.

* A major part of the premise of ''ShugoChara'', where the Guardian Charas within everybody are their Ghost in the Machine brought out into the real world. Most people have one, but heroine Amu has three [[spoiler:later four]]. That's one very busy machine.
