* In the LoisMcmasterBujold book ''The Hallowed Hunt, one of the ''Literature/Chalion'' books, this turns out to be the situation of the BigBad [[spoiler: Wencel. ]] Hundreds of years ago when their country was in the process of being conquered, the last Hallowed King underwent a sacred ritual to ensure that if he were to die, his consciousness would pass to the next male heir in his line to continue the fight. [[GoneHorriblyRight And the next, and the next, and the next...]] The consciousness that originally inhabited these bodies is swallowed up and added to the amalgamation. By the time the story reaches the present day, he's given up all ambitions beyond ending the cycle and dying once and for all. When we get a look at him through spirit vision, he's a monstrous abomination of hundreds of twitching faces vying for control.

* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', Father, the Homunculi, and [[spoiler:Hohenheim]] all contain many human souls within their bodies, which act as [[PoweredByAForsakenChild fuel]] for their powers. In most of these examples, it's an inversion of the trope--the host is the evil one, possessing a lot of tortured souls within them.
** [[spoiler:Hoenheim]] in particular plays with the trope even further when he reveals that over his long life he's reached an accord with each and every individual soul housed within him.

This means those souls are not constantly freaking out and move with him in a singular purpose of will, making him, in some ways, more powerful than Father or the Homunculi, who only use those souls as fuel.

** ''DIscworld/TheTruth'' has Altogether Andrews, a man with about eight personalities, of whom none are named Andrews. It's theorized that he was a medium who was too accommodating to lost spirits, and ended up getting pushed out of his body.
** Subverted in that most of his personalities are nice. Except for Burke, who [[NoodleIncident was only seen once and nobody wants to see him again.]]

** There's also Tiffany Aching in ''Discworld/AHatFullOfSky'' who is possessed by a Hiver.
** Subverted in Myria LeJean. The Auditors possessing her named this body expecting continued collectivism, but the form bestowed individuality upon whatever Auditor force(s) operated it, and at the end she changes her name to Unity.

** A brief gag in ''Discworld/CarpeJugulum'' involving a man who had seven personalities, four male and three female. They used to fight for control when he had a drink and they all wanted to taste it, but mostly one was left in charge and the other six were at the back of his mind ... pairing up. He resented this.

She plans on filling Eleanor with all the ADAM in Rapture so Eleanor will cease to exist and instead be the perfect Utopian who only works for the common good and with every skill and talent ever in Rapture at her command.]]

The TropeNamer is a song by {{Music/HammerFall}}, based on the famous biblical tale of Legion, man possessed by multiple demons, which is obviously the TropeCodifier. Contrast IAmLegion, another trope named after this tale, which occurs when members of a group start referring to themselves as a group, rather than individual people, implying that they lost their individuality.

Compare MindHive, a similar trope which occurs when multiple minds/personalities simultaneously inhabit one body, but are more or less in accord with each other.
