* Copycat from ''[[ComicBook/{{Gen13}} DV8]]'', whose five personalities are each represented by different fonts and word balloons. Ivana actually points out the HollywoodPsych at work, saying that Gem's condition doesn't resemble any case of Dissociative Identity Disorder she's ever read about. She theorizes it has something to do with her Gen-Factor mutating an existing psychological disorder.

* Copycat from ''[[ComicBook/{{Gen13}} DV8]]'', whose five personalities are each represented by different fonts and word balloons. For the record, those personalities are: Standard, overburdened teenager; "Spy", analytical and task-oriented; "Soldier", aggressive and combat proficient; "Nihilist", rebellious and troublemaking; and "Little Gemma", essentially Copycat as she was at age 6. Ivana actually points out the HollywoodPsych at work, saying that Gem's condition doesn't resemble any case of Dissociative Identity Disorder she's ever read about.

* Played for laughs in an episode of ''NightCourt'', where a defendant's DID wasn't revealed to the main characters until near the end. One personality was prudish, the other was slutty. The episode's running gag was for her more "open" side luring [[HandsomeLech Dan]] into some private (and always off-camera) location for some hanky-panky, only for her prudish side to re-emerge just as things were apparently getting good.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/TheUltimateHauntedHouse'', the house's owner Gahan Wilson suffers from this, due to a formula he drank. [[JekyllAndHyde One personality is good, the other is evil]], and it is difficult to tell which one is in control at first glance. Part of the difficulty of dealing with Gahan is that [[HydePlaysJekyll Evil Gahan will often pretend to be Good Gahan]] so that he can mock you and curse you after you give him an item.

* In ''Videogame/{{Borderlands 2}}'', Krieg suffers from this as a result of the experiments Hyperion put him through to make him such a deadly killing machine. His dominant, active personality is a lunatic, buzz-ax-swinging berserker who spends most of his time spewing jumbled nonsense (i.e. trying to talk to Maya resulted in him screaming "I'M THE CONDUCTOR OF '''THE POOP TRAIN!'''" at the top of his lungs). The other side of him is a much more sane and moral inner voice that tries to steer Krieg's murderous impulses into targets deserving of their wrath, but who has a hard time controlling the insane half of his mind. About the only thing the two consistently shares is that both are in love with Maya and believe that she is the one capable of curing them.

* Gemini from ''SakuraWars'' (''Sakura Taisen 5'') seems to be pulling a not-very-convincing masked vigilante act, until it's eventually revealed that she has a sister Geminine... living inside her.

Added DiffLines:

* Sora from ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'', maybe. Usually he's a nice guy, something of a bumbler, and unsure of his abilities. When actually dueling, however, his attitude turns far more serious and malevolent, [[SlasherSmile his appearance becoming menacing]] and his speech pattern sounding sociopathic, seeming to show sadistic pleasure in hurting his opponent. Possibly, this is due to his attachment to the Fusion Dimension.

* ''AceLightning'' has [[MeaningfulName Random Virus]], a [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul cyborg]] with one good and one evil personality. He's constantly fighting between them though how much these two sides of him are indivdiuals is unclear.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/JamAndJerusalem'' has Rosie, the awkward but friendly CloudCuckooLander, and her angry, intimidating alter-ego Margaret.
** This becomes much more poignant in the second series when it is revealed that Rosie was [[spoiler:molested as a child]]; multiple personalities are common among [[spoiler:trauma survivors]], so this may be a possible explanation for Margaret.
