** Bill Watterson had a storyline like this, where Calvin uses a "duplicator" to make copies of himself, who turn out to be disobedient jerkasses like the original. Eventually he gets fed up with the copies, and turns them into earthworms (but Calvin being Calvin, the clones aren't inclined to complain: they're all "Cool! Let's go gross someone out!"). This story appears in the collection ''Scientific Progress Goes Boink''.

* A couple of characters in ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} demonstrate this ability. The first of these was Blake, whose Shadow Semblance allows her to leave a temporary afterimage of herself. Then there was [[LittleBitBeastly Sun]], who showed off the ability to create light copies of himself in Volume 2. After this, there was [[MusicalAssassin Flynt Coal]], who can split himself into four with his "Killer Quartet" ability.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/TheInfiniteLoops'', aside from the liberal use of [[Manga/{{Naruto}} shadow clones]], there's the Mikasa glitch which is when a Loop spawns extra copies of the same Looper. Once such a glitched Loop is over the Looper will have the memories of all the copies. Doesn't stop some of them from deciding ThereCanOnlyBeOne though. There's also "mini-me" Loops, where there's an Awake and an Unawake copy of the same character. [[IHatePastMe Loopers tend to find these very annoying]].

These copies rarely [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman count]] as persons in and of themselves. See CloningBlues. If they ''are'' counted as people, expect WhichMe.
