* In ''Comicbook/LegionOfSuperheroes'', Luornu Durgo Taine, alias Triplicate Girl ([[IHaveManyNames or Triad, or Duo Damsel, or Duplicate Girl, or...]]) was proficient in Tri-Jitsu, a martial arts form native to her homeworld of Cargg, that exploited her natural ability to split into three bodies, so she could attack from three different points in perfect unison. In one of the more recent reboots, after discovering the ability to [[MesACrowd split into unlimited duplicates of herself]], she could now move like a virtual army acting in concert.
