* ''Literature/{{Goosebumps}}'': The "best friend" from ''My Best Friend is Invisible" often gets the main character in a lot of trouble out of boredom, and of course no one will believe his wild stories about an invisible friend. [[spoiler:Then the ending reveals that the main character is actually an evil alien who only looks human and the invisible friend is a scared human boy who survived the invasion of Earth by becoming invisible.]]

The ImaginaryFriend is a common trope in fiction, in which it bears little resemblance to the counterparts in RealLife (after all, [[RealityIsUnrealistic that would be boring]], like real amnesia). Imaginary friends in fiction can be holograms, spiritual projections, ghosts, psychological conditions, stress or injury related psychosomatic conditions, even split personalities. And because it is more entertaining, sometimes they aren't very friendly, or are actively malign towards their host/audience, or perhaps [[PoisonousFriend friendly to their host alone, and dangerously less so to everyone else.]]

-->"I won't speak for all schizophrenics, but for the most part, ''we don't like our voices.'' Why would we ever do anything simply because those jerks told us to? Think back to your middle school bully -- how would you respond if he tried to talk you into committing horrible crimes, but couldn't threaten you bodily harm (because he himself had no body -- for the purposes of this example, your middle school bully is a ghost). You'd tell him to fuck off and leave you alone, or at least run away."
