* In ''Comicbook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'', Jekyll is a sickly and emaciated man who is dominated by the ogre-like Hyde. Hyde remarks that he used to be a dwarf while Jekyll was more formidable since he was the embodiment of Jekyll's bad traits, and Jekyll wasn't really that bad a person. But as Hyde himself explains to Nemo, "Without me, Jekyll has no drive...while without him, I have no restraints."

* Ed Norton's character in ''Film/PrimalFear'' is at first revealed to have a (not super-powered) SuperpoweredEvilSide that was probably the one responsible for the murder. After their stunt in the courtroom, with the trial finished, Richard Gere's lawyer character suddenly suspects it was the other way around, that the psycho killer in fact had a HelplessGoodSide and he's now helped that psycho use his good side to get out of real jail time. Turns out that's not quite right either as [[spoiler: there never was any good side at all, the whole thing was just the psycho doing an act and playing everybody (including a mental health professional)]].

* ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'' has Royal Sorcerer Navlaan. Talk to him while hollow, and you will meet a bloodthirsty assassin who will enlist your aid in killing a number of other NPCs. If human, however he will be meek and frightened, begging you to get as far away as possible and leave him there. It is implied that, rather than being a split personality, the former 'side' is actually another being [[SharingABody using Navlaan's body as a vessel, and that the latter is his true self]].

* A Franchise/{{Batman}} villain known as the Ventriloquist has this... sort of problem. He seems like a decent-but-timid person, but he expresses his sociopathic side through a ventriloquists' dummy he carries called "Scarface." Scarface is dressed and acts like a miniature version of Al Capone, often giving the impression that he's actually holding his Ventriloquist hostage. If Scarface is destroyed, the Ventriloquist will usually surrender, often expressing relief that the dummy he was talking through and manipulating is gone. However, it's definitely his own problem and not the dummy being an ArtifactOfDoom or something (and there are times you'll ''really'' start to wonder). He's been separated from the puppet a number of times, but always winds up with him again in the end. This is typical of Batman's RoguesGallery -- fixing Two-Face's appearance doesn't fix Two-Face for long, etc.

* In ''WesternAnimation/Xiaolinhowdown'' Dojo is normally a cowardly tiny dragon with no ability to fight whatsoever that can't even breathe fire without assistance. His SuperpoweredEvilSide however is powerful and underhanded enough to defeat and eat the rest of the protagonists with ease.
