** 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.]]

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

* 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.

* Phil and Lil from earlier seasons of ''WesternAnimation/Rugrats'' were pretty much the same character, save for the occasional argument: Rambunctious, fun loving, and a lover of all things gross. In fact, the one time they ''tried'' to be different people, the episode ended with them deciding they were happier being like each other. Later writers decided to tone down Lil's tomboyishness.

* 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.
