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, ''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.

--> '''[[Main/PortmanteauCoupleName Stevonnie]]''': Alright, two donuts! One for me, and one for...me...Are you okay? [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything We can stop if you want. No it's fine.]]
--> ''Later:''
--> '''Stevonnie:''' (sad) I wish you were here. If we were together, it would be okay. But we ''are'' together, and it's not. ''I'm alone''.

* Early in its run, ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' introduces the idea of fusion, where two [[HumanoidAliens Gems]] can combine their physical forms into one via a dance. The episode "''Alone Together''" explores the experience of being fused when the titular [[HalfHumanHybrid Steven]] accidentally fuses with his friend Connie.

* Briefly in the end of season 1 of ''Anime/{{K}}'' - in order to defeat the [[spoiler: body-snatching Colorless King, Shiro goads him into trying to body-snatch him, and holds the Colorless King in his body - which is not his own, [[ItMakesSenseInContext by the way]] - trying to keep the Colorless King's consciousness buried. He then walks into the middle of a fight between the Red and Blue Kings, and has the Red King obliterate his body - luckily, Shiro is immortal, but the Colorless King is not, so it works.]]

* 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).

* 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.]]
