* ''Anime/YuriOnIce'' has the Nishigori triplets, who all share the same mischievous figure skating-obsessed personality between the three of them. They'll also [[SpeakingInUnison speak in unison]] or [[FinishingEachOthersSentences finish each other's sentences]] fairly often.

* ''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.

Added DiffLines:

* The Twins in ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' and the SpinOff TV show ''WesternAnimation/DragonsRidersOfBerk'', not as much single-minded as other examples, but their personalities are so alike that they're generally treated as a single character. In their case is their PlayedForLaughs SociopathicHero behavior. Probably consequence that neither of them is very bright.

* UrsulaKLeGuin's short story ''Nine Lives'' featured 10 clones who were essentially one being. [[spoiler: When nine of them died in an accident, the survivor considered himself "nine-tenths dead" and nearly lost his will to live.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Ayla and Nias of ''ComicBook/RedSonja'' share every frame and complete each other's sentiments if not sentences. They also never speak to each other - apparently it's unnecessary.

* WaltDisney's Huey, Dewey and Louie, who were scripted, and treated, as one character in their earlier appearances. In the ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse, they're also often FinishingEachOthersSentences.

*** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' Alphinaud and Alisaie, despite being HalfIdenticalTwins in terms of their looks. 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.

* From Creator/RobertAHeinlein's ''Literature/TimeEnoughForLove'', [[ThemeTwinNaming Lapis Lazuli Long and Lorelei Lee Long]], Laz and Lor for short. Their case is made even more interesting by the fact they aren't "natural" twins, but rather twin {{Opposite Sex Clone}}s of protagonist Lazarus Long. The story plays their single-mindedness for humor, but they themselves are quite serious about it, claiming to possess TwinTelepathy and apparently ''practicing'' speaking in sync with one aother, because they enjoy messing with people's minds.
** Castor and Pollux in Heinlein's "The Rolling Stones" fit this trope as well Laz and Lor do, and exhibit similar twin behaviours.
