* In the ''DragonBallZAbridged'' special ''Cooler 2: The Return of Cooler's Revenge - The Reckoning'', when the main villain arrives with his full [[RobotMaster Meta-]][[HiveMind Cooler]] [[OhCrap army]], all of which he controls directly. He even attempts to quote the TropeNamer. ''Attempts'' being key here.

* In both ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII'' and ''DissidiaFinalFantasy'' the Cloud of Darkness refers to "herself" in the plural. The reason for this could either because "she" is actually a personification of the chaotic forces that herald the coming of the Void, or because "she" is including her [[CognizantLimbs attack]] [[CombatTentacles tentacles]] when talking about "herself".

Common quality of {{Hive Mind}}s, {{Mind Hive}}s, and cases of ManySpiritsInsideOfOne, but this isn't necessarily so. Not to be confused with MesACrowd and RoyalWe. Often speak with VoiceOfTheLegion. Has nothing to do with ''Literature/IAmLegend''. Creator/RogerZelazny's ''My Name Is Legion'' (about a secret agent with a multitude of false identities) is also not an example of this trope. Could be a LimitedSocialCircle that has JumpedOffTheSlipperySlope. IAmSpartacus uses this as a diversion.

* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'': What's worse than getting into a battle with [[ImplausibleFencingPowers Ra's Al Ghul?]] How about a battle against around 20+ Ra's Al Ghul sand clones who pounce on you while shouting '''WE ARE LEGION'''?

*** The ''entire geth race'' is this trope; the geth are made up of two components: "platforms," the physical bodies you see in the game, and "runtimes," the actual artificial intelligence programs. To function, runtimes must inhabit platforms, usually requiring at least a few hundred runtimes per platform to run the platform's systems. Since geth platforms are all connected via FTL communication, geth runtimes will freely swap between platforms. Legion is partly unique in that it is made up of over a ''thousand'' runtimes inhabiting a single platform, over eleven times more than is normal for geth platforms.

Legion is partly unique in that it is made up of over a ''thousand'' runtimes inhabiting a single platform, over eleven times more than is normal for geth platforms. It needs this many because the geth get smarter the more of them are together; with over a thousand, Legion is able to function autonomously outside geth space and make contact with organic beings.

* 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]]?

* 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.
