* ''FanFic/InTheService'' provides a rare example of a negative portrayal of the trope. [[LyricalNanoha Wolkenritter]] in skin-to-skin contact are no longer individuals in a meaningful sense. They find this both frightening and unpleasant, and consequently inter-Wolkenritter romances don't work.

* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', for a long time it has been hinted that the Doctor and TARDIS were mentally linked, to the extent that the TARDIS's translation circuits depend on the Doctor's health. Similarly, there was a RunningGag that there seemed to be some kind of CargoShip going on; the Doctor would call his time machine "dear" and "sexy", and even companions would joke about how he would stroke her console. It was all but confirmed in a Season 6 episode where [[spoiler: the TARDIS was forced into a human body, and the two characters spend nearly the entire episode flirting, having sexual tension, or tearful CrowningMomentsOfHeartWarming.]] The name of the episode? "The Doctor's Wife".

** Also, Skywise and Cutter recognized, even though they are both male, because they already shared a soul, or so it is said.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''LightNovel/TheIrregularAtMagicHighSchool'', Tatsuya and Miyuki have a low-level example because part of her magic is devoted to suppressing his. When Miyuki dies, [[spoiler:as in the Reminscence arc,]] Tatsuya knows she's gone because the suppression is.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' has an {{Implied|Trope}} variation in Chapter 677, during the series' climactic battle against the BigBadEnsemble. Naruto is known to be able to [[TheEmpath sense people's emotions]] to some degree. At some point in the battle, he is transported to a relatively safe phased-out dimension while the rest of his allies are back in the regular dimension, falling to the influence of the [[LotusEaterMachine Infinite Tsukuyomi]] one by one. The very last person shown is Naruto's [[ShipTease maybe-possibly]] LoveInterest [[LivingEmotionalCrutch Hinata]], who mentally calls out to him in despair. ''Then'' the next panel is Naruto in the other dimension, suddenly looking very alarmed and eager to jump right out of the safe dimension, which his more level-headed RivalTurnedEvil [[HazyFeelTurn Sasuke]] wisely stops him from doing. To fully appreciate this nugget, you need to understand that: 1) It is not known to what degree exactly Naruto's power is supposed to work across dimensions; 2) The audience is, technically, free to interpret that moment such that Naruto reacted to ''everyone's'' plight, and not just Hinata; and 3) Point #2 is a [[LoveYouAndEverybody recurring theme]], and at this point the author is eligible for a lifetime achievement award in [[TrollingCreator pulling the legs]] of the series' fans who [[{{Shipping}} have any kind of emotional stake in where all of this is going]]. In retrospect? [[spoiler:[[OfficialCouple It was indeed this trope]]]].

* There is a practice made popular on some corners of the Internet that involves literally creating a second conscious personality in one's mind, known as a [[{{Tulpa}} Tulpa]]. This second personality can basically become an entirely new person, and one the practitioner (known as the "host") can share an incredibly close bond with that's basically this trope exactly, a closeness most people will never experience.

->'''Luke''': You know, when we were fighting those sentinels down there, something happened to me. To us. We were so close in the Force that it was like we'd become a single person. It was… it was something very special.\\

** In Vegeta's case, this idea came from a scene set during the Buu arc where Bulma seems to sense that something bad has happened to him… he blew himself up.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' had an unusual case, with three souls inhabiting one body (Coldstone), two of which were in love. They lamented being unable to feel physical things, but one can only imagine what it's like to not just be in each other's minds but ''be'' each other's minds… together.

This is a romantic trope where lovers share not just their lives and beds but actually [[PsychicLink their consciousness]]. Most often they're from an already [[PsychicPowers telepathic]] race but this telepathy goes even further; maybe they're always aware of the other, not just when communicating but ''always'', or they understand each other better than anyone else, or they actually feel exactly like the other, or something like that. Sometimes successful reproduction is tied to it. Sometimes [[MoralityChain the sanity of one,]] usually the male, or both partners depends on the mindlink. Often the link is not unsoliticious. [[{{Synchronization}} It goes both ways, so if something bad happens to one of them...]]
