* Rouge in ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', having fallen in the Spring of Drowned Asura, has three faces (all on different sides of the the same head) when she turns into her Goddess form. They bicker endlessly with one another, even yelling at each other to wake up if one of them is knocked out.

* Devon and Cornwall, the two-headed dragon in the animated film ''WesternAnimation/QuestForCamelot''. They/he can't fly unless both heads can agree, which isn't often. They even have a full DisneyAcidSequence [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-nNhGikahU song]] about how much better their lives would be if they were apart.

* If you watch Fluffy the three-headed dog from ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone'' carefully you can see that one head is paranoiacally alert, one is lazy smart-aleck, and the third is a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}.

* Runespoors, a species of magic snake from the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' background book ''Literature/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem''. Each of the three heads has a different personality. The left head is the planner, the center head is the dreamer, and the right head is always a CausticCritic, so the middle and left heads often team up to bite it off.

* The TV version of ''Series/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' had to try and portray Zaphod Beeblebrox with the special-effects technology of the early 1980s and the budget of a BBC science-fiction series. The result was [[SpecialEffectsFailure not terribly successful]].

* Landia in ''VideoGame/KirbysReturnToDreamland'' is a four-headed dragon that's able to split into four, single-headed dragons. It's implied that it's actually the other way around, though, as if it's defeated in its fused state, it'll split apart, and it/they remain this way after the Master Crown is removed from them.

* Minerva the [[HellHound Cerberus]] in ''Webcomic/{{Spinnerette}}'' has three heads, each one with its own look and personality. The left head is the cute one, the right head is the brash, fiesty one, and the middle head is the mature, moderate one. Interestingly, rather than being presented as three individuals sharing one body, it's more like Minerva is a single person who's thoughts are the same for all three heads, just filtered through different personality traits. According to her later on in the issue, the heads do not share thoughts (they have different personalities) but instead synchronize their memories during sleep. We see her heads talking to one another a few times in the book-only [[http://www.spinnyverse.com/comic/01-09-2012 Issue #9.]]

* Zak and Wheezie from ''WesternAnimation/DragonTales'' take this trope a little further than most: not only do they have different characters, they have different ''genders''. It's a show for very little kids, so don't expect any of the inevitable (and potentially nightmarish) FridgeLogic to be addressed.

* In ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'', one of Morgana's relatives [[MonsterMash are all monsters]], including a two-headed vulture-like creature. When DW and his family meet the extended family at their villa, one of the heads [[ToServeMan wants to eat them]], but the other objects, saying it would be [[SacredHospitality rude to eat guests]]. (Unfortunately for Darkwing, [[WickedWitch Morgana's grandma]] sides with the first one.)

* Zmey Gorynych from the Russian film ''Dobrynya Nikitich and Zmey Gorynych''. Despite being referred to in the singular, the three heads frequently converse with each other and speak independently, with Zmey alternating between referring to himself in the singular and plural (though this might actually be a translation gaffe)

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct'' has the unusual case of Eyedol, who had two separate heads in the original ''KI'' while the reboot gave him two ''[[BodyHorror halves]]'' of a head, thanks to [[TheRival Gargos]][[note]]This is discounting the fact that Reboot!Eyedol has alternate costumes that give him two different heads, including a Classic costume[[/note]]. Despite this, the reboot version fits the spirit of the trope better; he uses a StanceSystem based on which head is awake (one is a rushdown character, the other is a zoner), the player can change styles by [[SelfHarm punching the sleeping head until it wakes up]], and his [[SuperMode Instinct Mode]] wakes both heads at the same time and combines their moves (like the rushdown form's {{Shoryuken}} being followed by the zoning form's meteor rain).

* On ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'', Grim's three-headed dog doesn't talk, but his heads (two husky-types and one poodle) don't always act the same. Two of his heads were immediately attracted to Mindy's chihuahua Little Delicious, and exchanged glances of dismay when they realized the middle head was growling at her.

* The giant Judge Baskerville in ''Manga/OnePiece'' resembles the knight from ''Holy Grail'' and has one head that believes in punishment, one head that believes in mercy, and the center head which declares itself the most reasonable, but is really AxCrazy.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Mordheim}}: City of the Damned'' has a partial example played for BodyHorror. The Extra Face mutation gives a Chaos fighter [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a second face]] which overlaps with the original, resulting in a face with two noses, three eyes and two sets of lips over an enormous mouth. The effect is akin to a visual glitch and very freaky.
