* An author going by "persian85033" has produced an ''XMenEvolution'' [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2024204/1/ fanfic]] involving, may God help us, the Single Minded ''Dectuplets'' Maria Xoaquina, Maria Xitlalli, Maria Xaviera, Maria Xacinta, Maria Ximena, Maria Xiomara, Maria Xochilt, Maria Xosefina, Maria Xulia, and Maria Xamila, who literally refuse to be separated even for the length of a single school period: the entire school has to be rearranged so that they can be in the same room for every class.
* In ''HarryPotterAndTheMethodsOfRationality'' it's stated that Fred and George have almost identical thoughts if they're given the same information. They only talk to each other to share something the other doesn't know about and on the very rare occasions that they disagree with each other they feel like something has gone deeply wrong. Apparently this is normal for magical identical twins and in times past families would actually [[DeliberateValuesDissonance kill one of the twins at birth.]]

* In ''Series/{{Quark}}'', there are the Bettys (played by a pair of Doublemint gum twins) who can't decide which one is the clone (answer: the pretty one).

* [[Videogame/BioshockInfinite The Lutece Twins]] finish each other sentences, always travel together and are rarely seen far apart. [[spoiler: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in the fact that they are actually the same person, but from different dimensions.]]

*** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' Alphinaud and Alisaie, despite being HalfIdenticalTwins. Alphinaud serves as a major character throughout the game whilst Alisaie leaves soon after her introduction and is rarely mentioned again, making it unclear why the developers even made them twins in the first place.

** Fred and George Weasley, at least superficially. [[note]] See here for an [[http://hpcompanion.com/essays/fredgeorge/ analysis]] of their differences.[[/note]] Rowling specifically envisioned slightly different personalities to the twins. Fred is braver and more outgoing and is the "leader," while George is more clever but meeker. For example, Fred is the one who initiates just about every hi-jinks they ever pull, and the one Ron complains about the most. The difference is very subtle due to their limited screen time, and their enjoyment of using this trope on their mother. To her credit, many found it surprising that [[spoiler:Fred was the one who died, stating that George's personality made him the more obvious victim.]]

* Notably averted in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' with Kiki and Jenny. Not only are they fraternal, but Jenny is [[SassyBlackWoman sassy]], outgoing, and likes to party, while Kiki is more introverted and likes running.
