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.

* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' Ichigo Kurosaki shares his body with the spirit of his weapon, Zangetsu, and his SuperpoweredEvilSide, Hollow Ichigo. Zangetsu and [[FanNickname Hichigo]] seem to be representations of his powers, rather than his psyche, but still.

* In the Playstation 2 title VideoGame/GuiltyGear XX there's Zappa; A polite and friendly Aussie who's perfectly normal on the surface (Save an eccentric taste in wardrobe) except for the fact that he's the unknowing host to a grab bag of crazy ghosts including a spectral sword, a few dozen wisps, a hellhound, and an armor-clad lightning spirit. The most powerful and malevolent of his "guests" is S-Ko who [[ClingyJealousGirl readily takes control of him whenever he attempts to interact with other people]]. Unlike S-Ko, the weaker spirits are loyal to Zappa, often comforting him whenever he is depressed or sad.
* [=ExDeath=] from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' is [[spoiler:a living tree with many evil spirits sealed inside him. The release of these spirits combined with the power of the Void are what cause him to transform into Neo [=ExDeath=] at the games' end.]]

* This happens to Brutaka from ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' in the web-serials, when he falls into a vat of Antidermis. This is the substance from which the BigBad's species, the Makuta is born, and it contains the spirits of the unborn Makuta. Thankfully, they are all ''good'' by nature, and to Brutaka's species, Antidermis even works as a FantasticDrug. Thus the spirits do not corrupt Brutaka, he receives PowersViaPossession, but [[IAmLegion his mind is totally overwritten]], and his body becomes deformed.

* There's another New Testament reference — St. Matthew [-XII-], xliii.–xlv.:

to:

* This occurs several times in [[Literature/TheBible the New Testament]]:
** Jesus encounters a violent demon-possessed man who identifies himself as "Legion, for we are many." If taken at face value as a reference to [[AncientRome a Roman legion]], that would indicate about a ''thousand'' demons inside one individual. Jesus exorcizes the demons and sends them into a herd of pigs, which they destroy.

* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', by the end of the series, you can count at least four different personae that are within [[spoiler:Yasu]]'s body. Basically, [[AmbiguousGender s/he]] is more or less confirmed to be [[spoiler:Shannon, Kanon and Beatrice]]. However, if you count all of his/her {{imaginary friend}}s who don't actually take control of his/her body, the number of people in there easily jumps into the double-digits. It's a stinking party in his/her head. This is a slight variation on this trope, though, since these are all simply [[spoiler:Yasu]]'s personae and not actual people.
