* The twin sisters of the Baron Richmond, in ''Literature/{{Twig}}'', are referred to only as "the Twins" and act with the same amount of casual sadism, being identical and interchangeable. The same applies for their twin younger sisters who [[BodyHorror live inside of them]].

* In the ''Literature/GentlemanBastard'' series, Calo and Galdo Sanza are essentially the same person. They usually work together, have the same skills and [[FinishingEachOthersSentences finish each others sentences]]. Flashback chapters reveal that in their teens they they squabbled and adopted opposite appearances to distinguish their self-identities, but this was obviously a phase.

* Invoked and played with in Season Four of ArrestedDevelopment. George-Michael unintentionally offends a pair of twins by assuming they will vote the same way over a roommate/housing issue. As a result, they make a point of voting for opposite sides, leading to a tie (which remains unbroken as, rather than bring in a single tie-breaker, the two brothers insist on bringing in more and more ''pairs'' from their "Twin Club" to vote/demonstrate-how-they-avert-this-trope). To top it off, all the twins are either dressed identically or matching their sibling, and their behavior and dialogue throughout the scenes totally follow the trope even as they loudly protest its inaccuracy.

* Though never explicitly stated (it's implied to be the result of a string of freak coincidences), Batman villains the Trigger twins. They first met when they both attempted to rob the same bank, only to discover their exact resemblance to one another. Ever since, neither of them has ever seemed to come up with an idea the other hadn't been thinking of as well.

* Depending on how the GM runs the game, clones in ''TabletopGame/{{Paranoia}}'' often end up like this. This is typically enforced by encouraging players to treat a new clone as a "new life" continuation of the previous one, with the same skills and knowledge of the predecessor. In-game, it's usually justified by saying the standby clones are watching the actions of their active sibling through monitoring rooms during a mission.

** Despite being more or less single-minded, they do have distinct differences, the most obvious part being their appearance. Otto is a {{Bifauxnen}} and {{Tomboy}} who works as a crossdressing female butler, while Deed looks and acts much more feminine and wears feminine clothes. Both were stoic and quiee before their HeelFaceTurn, but both mellowed out at the same degree, while retaining their polite personalities; and sometimes, they even wear (feminine) twin outfits. Another obvious difference between them is their Inherent Skill. Otto's Ray Storm shoots lasers, and Deed's Twin Blades is a pair of DualWielding {{Laser Blade}}s.

* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'':
** Ptilol and Cyprine of the Witches 5, who were ''really'' one person in two bodies. In the French dub of the [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]], they refers as each other [[LiteralSplitPersonality ''doubles'']], and their names are Émilie and Émilia. Up until they can't agree on how to kill someone, anyway.
** There's also a pair of youma under Nephrite who have different powers--dark reflections of Mercury's and Mars'--but otherwise look nearly identical except for color and act as one until they have a spat (over which is doing more to kill the senshi) which gives the soldiers the in they need and the audience a ham-fisted sermon about cooperation.
** Despite so little screentime, in the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]] Phobos/Deimos, Lethe/Mnemosyne, and Chi/Phi might be like this. Chi and Phi seem to be one-minded in wanting to kill the senshi, anyway.
* Pyun and Potaro from ''Anime/DaiMahouTouge''.
* Jougan and Barinbou, the twin [[TheBigGuy Big Guys]] from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''. They are never seen apart from each other, and while they don't finish each other's sentences, they often do split a complete statement between them, with one taking one full sentence and the other taking the next.
* Imari and Sayoka from ''{{Inukami}}''
* [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' with identical twins [[{{Tsundere}} Hikaru]] and [[TheQuietOne Kaoru]]: they start out following this trope to a tee, speaking together and FinishingEachOthersSentences, but by the middle of the series they've developed entirely distinct personalities... and [[GenreSavvy Kaoru even recognizes that this trope is unhealthy]] and takes steps to try and avoid it.
** Even before that, it was established early on that Kaoru was passive while his brother was aggressive, both on and off their Host Club "stage." Later on it's revealed that they put on an imitation of this trope to drive people away outside of school. When Haruhi manages to see through this act, they start loosening up, to the point where their true personalities begin to surface.
** They're a little surprised by how many differences they actually have; they tended to think of themselves this way a lot of the time, especially after the only babysitter they ever liked turned out to be an infiltrator and reinforced their preference for distrusting everyone who wasn't them. Panic is had on Hikaru's side when he realizes there is a gap forming down the middle of their 'us.'
*** They did the 'falling in love with the same girl' thing, and their different reactions to the dilemma set off the division storyline. Basically, Kaoru is naturally more mature, and winds up taking care of Hikaru in this regard.

* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' has two sets of Single Minded Twins; one unique to the anime, one to the manga. The anime has Ling-Ling & Lung-Lung, who aren't identical twins (with different hair colours, eye colours, weapons and hair styles), but nevertheless act as functionally one person. The manga has Pink & Link, who act like this when they come to Nerima, but are portrayed as being PolarOppositeTwins in their backstory.
** The first [[TheMovie movie]], ''Big Trouble in Nekonron, China'', has the Lucky Gods Daikokusei and Daihakusei, two Go-playing siblings who are functionally identical. The only difference between them is that one plays white and the other plays black.
* [[CreepyTwins Jasdero & Devit]] from ''DGrayMan''. Literally.
** They even do a fusion thing where they fight as 'Jasdevi;' it took a while to learn their individual names.
* The second season of LightNovel/{{Slayers}} has a pair of these; identical twin martial artists who want to be famous pop idols and who get into a fight over what Lina thinks is a book of spells, but turns out to be a collection of lost folk remedies. For added measure, Mimi and Nene are [[ShoutOut physically identical]] to Manga/RanmaOneHalf's Shampoo.
* The Tachibana twins, Masao and Kazuo, in CaptainTsubasa. They're also GenreSavvy to the point of using their single-mindness as a game strategy.

* ''Manga/ACentaursLife'' has single-minded ''triplets'' in Manami's little sisters Chigusa, Chinami and Chiho. It's to the point where they're typically called 'Chi-chan', as though they really were one person.
* In ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' this is portrayed both more literally than normal and more ''expansively'' than normal. There are just over ten thousand Misaka clones left out of an original twenty thousand and they're all referred to both as the Sisters and as the ''actual'' sisters of Misaka Mikoto. Though some characters view them as individuals, it would be more accurate to stay each one is a unique unit, all of which are an addition to the overall Misaka network. So in truth they really do all have one mind and they are constantly in mental contact, so when multiple Misakas are present they tend to finish each others sentences without hesitation.
* Literal case in ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' with Alicia and Beth. They were trained/built that way too; the Organization hoped to create a warrior who could [[SuperpoweredEvilSide become]] [[AndThenJohnWasAZombie an]] [[EldritchAbomination Awakened Being]] and then come back, something requiring exceptional willpower - accordingly, they decided to design one twin to be the Awakened Being (Alicia) and one twin to be the willpower (Beth).

Interestingly, {{Fanon}} often tries to interpret or develop them to be more separate, while the show passed up a perfectly opportunity to do so (between Katie and Sadie's eliminations}.
* Twirly and Whirly from the ''WesternAnimation/BitsyBears'' pilot.
* ''{{Superjail}}'''s very own Twins fall under this trope most of the time they appear, and that's only one of the many strange parts to them.
* Tek and No from ''{{Foot 2 Rue}}'' are definitely this, usually being referred to by their portmanteau name the Teknos, and being completely identical. They start becoming a little more individual in season 3, but are still impossible to tell apart.
* Whittany and Brittany Biskit in ''WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012'', who almost always agree with each other, and when in a musical sequence, always sing in unison unless complementing each other's lines. However, there have been a few moments when the two are separated, where it's shown that each of them is ''intentionally'' trying to act like the other one to avoid rejection from her.
