* Early on in ''Devil Summoner: VideoGame/SoulHackers'', your friend Hitomi ends up getting [[DemonicPossession possessed]] by a demon named Nemissa. Unlike most cases of this in the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' series, Hitomi is fully conscious and able to talk while being possessed, and while the two argue a bunch early on, they eventually learn to cooperate outside of battle and can use the body together.

As a result of [[AWizardDidIt magic]], AppliedPhlebotinum, or just plain old plot demands, two characters end up sharing a body. Distinct from PuppeteerParasite and most cases of DemonicPossession in that the two characters are more or less equal partners here. (The one whose body it is may claim seniority, but enforcing it is a different matter).

matter.



May resemble SplitPersonality, but usually happens to characters who have already been well established separately and is almost always a temporary situation. If the characters battle for control of the body, this can share some features with EnemyWithin; the key difference is that EnemyWithin originates, well, ''within'' its host, while the character SharingABody does not. Sometimes TheMirrorShowsYourTrueSelf, revealing the extra driver. Compare TwoBeingsOneBody, when two beings are physically combined. Also compare SymbioticPossession.

* Vree the assassin does this with both her brother and her enemy (fortunately for her, ''not'' at the same time) in TanyaHuff's ''Fifth Quarter'' and ''No Quarter''. Not just a plot point, here--it's more or less the central conceit.

* In VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising, [[spoiler:Pit briefly takes over Magnus' body as a ring at the end of chapter 18, "The Ring of Chaos." They can speak to each other, resulting in some banter, however control over Magnus' body isn't split; only Pit can control it.]]

* ComicBook/{{X-Men}} foe Johnny Dee is a baseline human who shares his body with his conjoined mutant twin. Johnny despises his brother's existence since he had to go through life with a horrible tentacle face in his chest, but has no qualms about using his brother's powers to manipulate and kill the people around him.

* CaptainAmerica's series around the time of Marvel's Civil War event had Red Skull assassinated by Aleksander Lukin, a former Soviet general. Due to shenanigan with a weak Cosmic Cube Red Skull possessed, an attempt at GrandTheftMe became this trope instead, made all the worse for both because of their fierce ideological opposition to the other.

** This is more of a FusionDance, since, while Piccolo gains their power, Nail and Kami's personalities are integrated into his own instead of sticking around as separate personalities. The fusion with Kami was also a SplitPersonalityMerge, since in the distant past they were the same Namek, who [[LiteralSplitPersonality purged his evil personality into a separate body]]. Some {{reincarnation}} and a HeelFaceTurn for the no-longer-evil half later, and they merge back together.

* An episode of ''Series/TheOuterLimits'' has a writer go up into space on a shuttle. However, something happens and the shuttle crashes on landing, only for the writer to walk out unharmed. He starts getting strange visions and eventually finds out that there is a non-corporeal alien in his body, whose own spacecraft was destroyed near Earth and whose attempts to enter the writer resulted in the shuttle's destruction. With the government realizing something is up, they perform experiments on the writer and find out that having two beings on one body will eventually prove fatal. The alien seemingly agrees to sacrifice itself by giving the scientists instructions on killing him to save the writer. It appears to work, and the writer is set free. However, one of the scientists then wonders if they killed the right being. This is confirmed when the "writer" goes to his son's grave and tells the "boy" that his father was very brave with a flashback revealing that it was the writer who chose to give up his life to save the alien.
