* 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.

While Alphinaud serves as a major character throughout throws himself into the game whilst task of filling the shoes of their grandfather, Archon Louisoix, and assisting the Scions of the Seventh Dawn in repelling the Garlean threat and restoring stability to Eorzea, Alisaie leaves soon after grows disgusted with Eorzea's politics and follows her introduction own path, seeking the truth behind the Battle of Carteneau and is rarely mentioned again, making it unclear why Archon Louisoix's disappearance and ultimately finding the developers even made them twins in Dreadwyrm Bahamut on the first place.verge of resurrection. Alisaie is largely absent from the main story while Alphinaud remains a central figure throughout; this status quo changes towards the end of the Heavensward expansion, where Alisaie returns with a new costume, new abilities, and new purpose.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' has the Flying Lettuce Brothers, old associates of Jake. Other than using a glove and a wirstwatch in different arms, they look and sound identical. Speaking in unision is part of their talent, as they only need to hear a single sentence and they can modulate their voice to sound exactly like the person who talked.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/BeCoolScoobyDoo'' has a set of these in one ep. They are about ten, and must finish eachother's sentences. Even if they are just saying "yes". Also played with when one disappears. The other can only start a sentence, but can not complete the thought.

* In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker'', Dee-Dee/The Deeds/Delia & Deidre Dennis are twin sisters who may as well be two halves of one person. Besides looking and talking exactly the same (both twins are rapidly and amusingly voiced by Melissa Joan Hart), they move and fight in incredibly effective teamwork. Just goes to show how devastating it would be if villains didn't [[MookChivalry attack the hero one at a time]]...

* ''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.

** Fred and George Weasley, at least superficially. They often finish each other's sentences and jokes.[[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.]]

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.
