* In ''Whispers'', by DeanKoontz, the heroine was almost raped and killed by a famous man before killing him herself. He couldn't have done it because he was away. As you can guess, it was his twin. The other comes back and talks about how she killed him. Turns out [[spoiler:their mother was impregnated by [[ParentalIncest her father]] and gave birth to twins. After some time, the stress drove her insane and she believed they'd been concieved when a demon raped her. To conceal them, she forced them to be one person, and locked them in a cellar with hundreds of horrifying, huge cockroaches that would crawl all over them when they didn't act or think as one. As a bonus, she made them believe they had demonic penises, and that they always had to hide them from everyone else. Now that they don't have [[{{Twincest}} each other]], their only "outlet" is with the only other person who knows - Mom. She's dead - but he thinks she's coming back as different women. [[{{Squick}} Shudder.]]]]

The opposite of PolarOppositeTwins. If they're on a superhero or villain team of some sort, they'll often be counted as a "single" member (like the Witches 5 from ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' - which was actually six girls, but two of them were twins). Particularly weird when they're HalfIdenticalTwins.

* ''ComicBook/Superlopez'': [[ZigZaggingTrope Zig-zagged]] with Jaime's cousins Adolf and Rodolf from ''Al centro de la tierra''. They really are able to think as one, but when one of them makes the other angry, a fight between them is sure to break out.

* [[WickedLovely Ani and Tish]] act like this, but in reality Tish is almost three years older, they have different mothers, and Ani is almost a full faerie where as Tish is practically mortal.
* Ritva and Mary Havel of the {{Emberverse}} begin very much like this, but in the course of the second trilogy they show/develop somewhat more distinct personalities.

* In ''TheVampireFiles'' series, the Ruzzo brothers look and act so much alike, and work together so closely, that their fellow gangsters refer to them in the singular as well as the plural (e.g. "Tell Ruzzo to get their butt(s) in the car, already.").

* Cersei and Jaime Lannister from ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' think of themselves this way -- Jaime is convinced that "If I were a woman, I would be Cersei," and Cersei says she only feels whole [[{{Twincest}} during sex with Jaime]]. Their POV chapters, however, reveal that they're wrong about this.

Added DiffLines:

* 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]].

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
