* In ''{{Ar Tonelico 2}}'', the various modes of the [[KillSat Infel Phira]] amounts to this. Replakia combines dozens of spellcasters to boost the damage of attack spells to an impressive levels, while Metafalica is a more through MentalFusion that is used to get enough power to create a FlyingContinent . A few other modes are used for mind control instead.
* The Transcendence victory in ''SidMeiersAlphaCentauri'' involves humanity voluntarily forming a planetwide collective consciousness. [[spoiler: And the planetary consciousness then plans a second transcendence: some people volunteer to be reinstated in individual bodies and head off to colonize other worlds, with the hope that between them the planets will devise a way to escape entropy's cruel grip and thus allow life to flourish indefinitely.]]

* In the second season finale of ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'', SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor fuses with [[spoiler:ComicBook/{{Brainiac}}]]. The latter is initially hesitant since its experiences with ComicBook/{{Darkseid}} gave it trust issues, but Luthor assured it that if they were truly one then trust wouldn't be an issue. Both parties are pretty pleased with the result: Luthor gets [[spoiler:Brainiac's]] vast power and knowledge, and [[spoiler:Brainiac]] gets Luthor's ambition.

* There's a scene in ''ElfQuest'' where the Wolfriders' telepathy allows them to think and act as one in order to defeat the monster Madcoil. Curiously that's the only time that particular ability is discussed, although it's probably used in other battle scenes.

** The multi-person version is now called Battle Meditation. In the NewJediOrder it was shown that an all-Jedi group could make a Jedi Meld to act with reflexes and synchronicity that even they couldn't match normally.

* In both the manga and the first movie of ''GhostInTheShell'' [[spoiler:this is the point of the plot! Project 2501 was trying to lure the Major to it so it could offer her to fuse their minds. Her interpersonal behavior remains the same (which wasn't much to begin with), but her abilities as a hacker and to dive directly into computers increased greatly.]]

* Happens in ''SoulEater'' with the Soul Resonance, a link between a meister and his or her [[EquippableAlly weapon]]; and the Chain Resonance, a link between all the individuals (both meisters and [[VoluntaryShapeshifting weapons]]) of a team. This resonances not only increase the power of the group overall but also increase each individual's power and, in the case of Soul Reasonance, it's a prerrequisite for certain attacks.
* In ''RosarioToVampire'', Lady Oyakata transforms into a giant plant monster and then absorbs Moka, Kurumu, Mizore and Ruby. The girls are fused with Oyakta both physically, as they become part of her body, and mentally, since their minds get linked to hers.

Compare AssimilationPlot, where the goal of ThePlan is to create this on a universal scale. Compare HiveMind, which is usually involuntary and permanent version of this happens and all sense of self or individuality is lost. May coincide with FusionDance. See also MindLinkMates and TwinTelepathy. [[SideEffectsInclude Side effects may include]] creation of a LivingMemory inside participants' minds, speaking in unison, GlowingEyes, BattleAura, PowerFloats, and drowsiness.

* In ''{{Warhammer 40000}}'', the Imperial Guard can field a unit that consists of a "choir" of psykers. Individually, they would be too weak to be useful in combat, but by combining their psychic powers, they can still serve. In the fluff, astropaths (who use telepathy to send messages between star systems) can also work in choirs to boost their range, efficiency, and clarity.
