* Nissien and Efnissien from the Mabinogion. Their names literally mean "peace" and "not-peace" which, funnily enough, highlights the main theme of the story. Not much is said of Nissien. His sociopath brother on the other hand...

* The flesh-mind and aggression of Esau the hunter versus the faith and docility of Jacob the homemaker in Literature/TheBible. In fact one book of children's Bible stories even had the chapter title "Twins Who Were Different."

Jacob is younger, and isn't so hairy and prefers to use his [[TheSmartGuy brains over brawn]]. [[spoiler: Which enables him to receive Esau's birthright.]] They were at odds with one another ''before they were even born!'' [[spoiler: Though they manage to make peace... several years later.]]

* Occurs in Creator/GordonRDickson's ''ChildeCycle'' series of novels and short stories, in the characters of Ian and Kensie Graeme. Both are Dorsai ({{Proud Warrior Race Guy}}s). Ian is the epitome of the Warrior - seemingly aloof and intimidating by his sheer presence. Kensie is his polar opposite - warm, caring, social - everything that Ian is not. In the stories it's implied that together the two make up one individual.
** Ironically, it's Ian who's irresistible to women - ''[[ChickMagnet without realizing it]]''.
