* The Prometheus robots in ''VideoGame/TimeSplitters: Future Perfect'' say this at random (or more specifically, we ''are'' legion).

I Am Legion is a Trope where some group or individual is made more sinister or strange by having them avoid referring to themselves in the singular. Through their speech and mannerisms they will make the viewer question the nature of the character. A lone character speaking as though they were chanting along as part of a chorus, or an assembly speaking in perfect unison, regardless of the situation.

Humans are very social creatures, we enjoy being around each other a great deal. Our friends, our family, our lovers, our coworkers, are all sources of wholesome fun. If you're not into that sort of thing, well, [[LonersAreFreaks there's something wrong with you]]. But what happens when you go just a bit too far, become more and more of other people while less and less of yourself? Can you go so far that there's [[LossOfIdentity nothing left of you at all]]?

* TruthInTelevision: 4chan's [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anonymous_%28group%29 Anonymous]] is a gigantic group of [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin anonymous]] people, connected only by their anonymous identity, that, when angered, can [[InternetBackdraft seriously screw up a person's reputation.

* The fans of the Dutch football team Feyenoord are referred to as "The Legion". They even use is in songs (We are the Legion, and we will become champion). It scans a lot better in the original Dutch, mind you.

* OlderThanFeudalism: The trope takes its title from the [[Literature/TheFourGospels Book of Mark]], where a man possessed by many demons was asked his name by Jesus and replied, "My name is Legion for we are many." Another [[Literature/TheBible Biblical]] example: Daniel 10:6 also reports the eponymous prophet's vision of a glowing man whose [[VoiceOfTheLegion voice was "like the sound of a multitude."]]

Jesus exorcised the demons into a herd of pigs, who rushed down a sleep slope to drown themselves in the waters.

** Whether Flagg and Linoge are one and the same is a major source of EpilepticTrees. Entirely possible, given that Flagg is a recurring character in the works of Stephen King. [[TheDragon Walter O'Dim]], the Man in Black, the Walking Dude from ''Franchise/TheDarkTower'' series and Flagg are one and the same. Since Walter can travel through the multiverse, it's quite likely that he is every incarnation of Flagg/Legion to appear in all of Stephen King's stories.
** In one scene of ''Literature/{{It}}'', a woman whose daughter is taken by Pennywise hears voices coming from her sink drain. When she asked who they are, they reply "We are Legion".

*** (Since that's a little difficult, here's some help - [[spoiler: Myria, from "myriad", meaning "innumerable", and Le Jean pronounced in the proper French manner sounds a lot like "legion"]].)

* In ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean,'' veterans of the Flying Dutchman's crew express a particularly strong "part of the crew, part of the ship" thought, to the point where they are eventually fused into the ship.
* ''{{Spawn}}'' finds out he actually has 4000 (?) souls. He quotes the same phrase from the Bible.

* ''MortalKombat'''s Ermac, being a HiveMind of numerous souls. He even uses the "We are many" mantra in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9''.
* The antagonist in the video game rendition of ''ShadowMan'' was named (and may have been) Legion, and he and his group of serial killers (called "The Five") used the bible quote as a mantra. His goal was to trick the protagonist into collecting a series of demonic souls for him so he could unleash them to bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, natch.
