** In ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice Spirit of Justice]]'', [[spoiler: Uendo Toneido has four of them. These include Uendo the fairly average rakugo performer, Patches the happy-go-lucky jester, Kisegawa the stern female courtesan and Owen the timid 5 year-old who only comes out when the other three cannot.]]

%%%* ''Series/MyOwnWorstEnemy''

to:

%%%* ''Series/MyOwnWorstEnemy''* ''Series/MyOwnWorstEnemy'' has this as the premise of the show. Edward Albright, a spy, is the original personality, and Henry Spivey, a quiet middle-management office employee with a wife and two kids, is the implanted cover. The chip that separates the two lives breaks down, and Henry becomes aware of his alter-ego.

* ''Fanfic/SomebodyThatIUsedToKnow'': an exceptionally dark example with [[spoiler: Matt Engarde, who vanishes for a month at the start of the story, and reappears with no explanation of where he went or what happened to him. In that time period, he seems to have developed a whole new personality, one who is deeply suspicious of everyone and has increasingly dangerous sociopathic tendencies; occasionally, however, brief glimpses of his old personality come through, either to cry about his situation, or to try to warn his old friend/lover about things that his new personality is planning to do or has already done. The thing that adds an extra dark twist to all of this is that it suggests that the persona you see Matt present in the game--the vague, cute, airheaded side that you see before the reveal--is an entirely fake persona made up by the new sociopathic one; the fake persona is sort of a shallow mockery of his original personality, which seems to have entirely vanished by the end of the story.]]

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': The swords used by Shinigami, Zanpakuto, reflect their wielders' nature in weird ways. It's possible, though extremely rare (as in, only two canon examples) for a Zanpakuto to have two spirits inhabiting the weapon. The primary example is Ichigo's Tensa Zangetsu, which is split between the "Hollow Ichigo" spirit ([[spoiler:the true Zangetsu that reflects Ichigo's power as a Shinigami]]) and the "old man in black" spirit ([[the reflection of a piece of Yhwach trying to take possession of Ichigo's power]]). Usually, when Ichigo goes into his MentalWorld, the two spirits share the same body, which changes form depending on who's in control. [[spoiler:However, in the final arc Ichigo learns his Zanpakuto's, and by extension his own, true nature and accepts both as extensions of himself. The autonomous Zangetsu spirits are never seen again, implying a SplitPersonalityMerge with each other and their wielder.]]

* Lord Mark Vorkosigan, from [[LoisMcMasterBujold Lois [=McMaster=] Bujold's]] ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'', developed four extra personalities to resist torture: Gorge, Grunt, Howl, and Killer. While he learns to control them, they explicitly do not go away. Fortunately, they are all fixated on protecting/aiding Mark to the best of their abilities from the get-go and like his girlfriend.

* Played for laughs in ''Film/{{Serenity}}'' where Simon briefly suspects that the mysterious "Miranda" could be an alternate personality of River (as it turns out, Miranda isn't a person at all). A couple of seconds after he raises the possibility, both of them burst out laughing at how ridiculous and cliched it would be.

[[spoiler:The webcomic ''Webcomic/AndShineHeavenNow'' takes it one step further, where it's revealed that aside from Yumie, Yumiko has ''nine more personalities'' that were being suppressed by Iscariot. She suffered a temporary HeroicBSOD when Heinkel released them as the personalities sorted themselves out. In a big ShockingSwerve though, Yumiko was never the original personality. She was just led to believe she was such because she's the easiest to control.]]
