''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice'' has an In-Universe example. [[spoiler: In the second case, StageMagician Bonny Defamme is famous for her teleportation act. She pulls it off due to having a twin sister, Betty. Naturally you end up having to expose this in court when the "Bonny" testifying turns out to be Betty.]]

* Used for a very clever visual effect in ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' episode "A Passage for Trumpet". Joey Crown (Jack Klugman) thought he was dead and wandering the world as a ghost when he saw a full-length mirror next to a theater ticket booth. He saw the reflection of the girl in the ticket booth, but not his own reflection. The set designers built the set so it had two identical theater entrances, only one was reversed as a mirror image, with a pane of clear glass between them. The girl in the ticket booth was played by twins, one in the "real world" and one in the "reflection".

* A 2008 Australian children's serial called ''Double Trouble'' featured a ''[[Film/TheParentTrap Parent Trap]]''-style plot of twins separated at birth meeting by chance and pulling a TwinSwitch. However, instead of Hayley Mills or Lindsay Lohan doubling up, the series featured real twins Christine and Cassandra Glenn as the two girls, meaning there are noticeable differences between them.

*** In fact, is is THIS sequence for which the twin was considered absolutely necessary. They had no idea how to do it, until she revealed she had a twin!

* Semi-example; when TheWho made a guest appearance as themselves on ''TheSimpsons'', Pete Townshend had a sore throat and wasn't able to read his lines, so his soundalike younger brother, Simon Townshend, read the lines on his behalf.

But hey, sometimes they do! Twins have a certain advantage when it comes to getting in movies and TV. For one, child labor laws limit the amount of filming a kid can do in a single day. When you've used one kid to the daily quota, there's always the backup kid (or, more accurately, instead of one being a "backup kid," the twins will often be used for different situations. One might be better at sitting still when they need them to, whereas the other might be a little better at interacting with other people.) For another, identical twins make excellent doubles, which works even if the twin isn't an actor.
