Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' has multiple examples of this in the series.
** Kuro and Shiro start out as this, mirroring each other in monochromatic clothing as suits their names. Then [[spoiler: Shiro is killed, forcing Kuro to develop into her own character as an AngstySurvivingTwin]].
** Gagi and Guge, twin {{Mooks}} that accompany Naki as his bodyguards.
** While never explicitly stated to be twins, the Bin Brothers function as a single character and never show their faces. After their death, their [[TailSlap kagune]] are combined together to repair [[DropTheHammer Dojima]].

* An extreme example of such twins might be Jennifer and June Gibbons, aka the Silent Twins.

to:

* An extreme example of such twins might be [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/June_and_Jennifer_Gibbons Jennifer and June Gibbons, Gibbons]], aka the Silent Twins.Twins. They did this partly because Jennifer, ten minutes younger than June, felt she had to "catch up" so they would do everything as simultaneously as possible. Jennifer called all the shots on this, preventing June from any spontaneous impulse. They did everything they could to appear to be one mind in two bodies, and this plus the fact that they were black Caribbeans living in a 99% white small town in Wales caused them to be viewed as CreepyTwins by health care workers and hospital staff. Jennifer's death in 1993 literally released June to speak and live a normal life.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/YuriOnIce'' plays this straight with the Nishigori triplets, who all share the same mischievous figure skating-obsessed personality between the three of them, but averts it entirely with the Crispino twins, who are PolarOppositeTwins with personalities that are distinct from one another.

* 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.

* 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.
