* Motoko in ''Manga/Change123'' has three split personalities named Hibiki, Fujiko, and Mikiri -- collectively known as [=HiFuMi=] (1, 2, 3) -- that materialize whenever she's in danger. These split personalities come from her TrainingFromHell under three different adoptive fathers. Changes in hairstyle, muscle structure, and cup size come with it[[note]] Also, in the colored promotional panels, their [[KaleidoscopeEyes eyes]] and [[KaleidoscopeHair hair]] usually have different colors. (See "Color-Coded For Your Convenience" item in this manga's "[[Characters/Change123 Characters]]" sub-page!) [[/note]], along with martial arts styles -- each personality, other than Motoko, are martial arts masters in a single specific field.\\

* The BigBad in Part 5 of ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' has two personalities. There's Doppio, a borderline autistic, [[PsychopathicManchild childlike]] man, and Diavolo, a cunning, violent, and paranoid mafia boss. His [[KaleidoscopeHair hair color]], [[KaleidoscopeEyes eyes]], and size change drastically and his Stand power changes form as well. Doppio communicates with Diavolo by holding random objects to his face like a phone (after hearing schizophrenic ringing).

As it is understood in modern psychology, the condition is thought to sometimes result when a child/teen copes with abuse by convincing himself that it's happening to someone else; as such, the trigger is generally some experience the child/teen is trying to [[RuleOfScary dissociate himself from]] [[ImaginaryFriend by means of creating an "alter ego" who gets put in charge]]. Note that without receiving psychological counseling, the symptoms will carry over into adulthood. The individual has no control (at least initially) over when the personalities "switch" and may not initially remember what happens to him while they are switched. To put all that in Tropese: you go to your HappyPlace while some poor RedShirt has to deal with the TraumaCongaLine or HumiliationConga -- so stereotypically, the personality [[BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil who has to deal with it is not a nice person]]...

* ''Film/TheThreeFacesofEve'' is about a timid housewife named Eve White who learns that her splitting headaches and blackouts are the result of having developed a wilder and more free-spirited personality named Eve Black. A more neutral third personality who calls herself just "Jane" eventually emerges too. [[spoiler:The film ends with Jane becoming the dominant and sole personality.]]

** After this film was released, the number of Americans diagnosed with [=MPD/DID=] increased quite dramatically; this rash of [[FollowTheLeader copycats]] causes part of the skepticism surrounding the disorder's existence.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'': Eventually revealed to be true for [[spoiler:Reiner Braun, who is also the Armored Titan who broke down Wall Maria]]. It's played a bit more realistically in that it developed due to trauma, in this case [[spoiler:the extreme guilt of having broken down the Wall and unleashing the Titans on who he now realizes are ordinary, innocent people]], and the two personalities are not two distinct identities but rather two aspects of the same person. He labels one "the Soldier" (the loyal member of the army within the walls who fights the Titans), and the other "the Warrior" (his true personality).

** Dr. Bruce Banner is a different person when transformed into the Hulk. The comics take it to extremes, with different versions of the Hulk with different personalities: in addition to the traditional "Savage Hulk", there also developed a sneaky, amoral version called Joe Fixit (who was grey, like in the Hulk's first appearance). Eventually, the personalities were integrated into the "Merged Hulk", but this was {{retcon}}ned to be just another personality, the Professor (who had Banner's brainpower, Fixit's cunning, and most of Savage Hulk's strength).\\\
Two other personalities in Bruce's lineup are the Devil Hulk, a reptilian creature that lacks any sense of guilt, and the Green Scar, who combines Fixit's cunning with the Savage's strength, and over time develops to become possibly the strongest Hulk incarnation of all.

*** Some have theorized that the Hulk is -- and always has been -- an embodiment of pent-up rage and aggression that Banner had felt all his life prior to the accident, mostly stemming from the abuse he and his mother suffered at the hands of his father. [[spoiler:Who Bruce killed by accident, but later admitted it ''might'' have not been an accident.]] In short, Banner and the Hulk may be more alike than Banner is willing to admit.

* Merry, in the ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'', has four personalities: Chaddy, her more innocent child self; Chad, her cynical, distrustful, early adolescent self; Merry, the most normal one and the dominant personality; and Mai, an evil AI she defeated that took up residence in and merged partially with her mind. Eventually these four were separated into pairs when Merry got accidentally cloned; Chad and Chaddy now live in Petra's head, while Merry and Mai now live in Paige's. And to those of you wondering why two of those personalities have male names . . . it's the WhateleyUniverse. [[GenderBender Figure it out.]] Fey, meanwhile, doesn't so much have a SplitPersonality as she ''actually has'' another person in her head, specifically Aunghadhail, an ancient Sidhe queen who died millenia ago but is now BackFromTheDead, sort of.

* Mark Meadows, AKA "Captain Trips," of the ''WildCards'' series. Normally a smiling, weirdly dressed, and rather ineffectual hippy (albeit one with great skills in biochemistry), in time of need, his various powders and potions are capable of making him an ace of badass proportions... or rather, several aces, depending on which one he takes. All of them have a different mind and personality, and most of them think the good Captain is a wimp or worse, and do everything they can to keep from reverting when the chemical wears off.

* ''Webcomic/DumbingOfAge'': Amber copes with her trauma and stress by creating Amazi-Girl, a vigilante modeled after Batman. The twist is that ''Amber'' [[http://www.dumbingofage.com/2017/comic/book-7/03-the-thing-i-was-before/unfinished/ is the dangerous one]], because it's Amazi-Girl who shares Batman's stoicism, strict moral code and self-control.

* Dinah, one of the spirits from ''SummonNight: Swordcraft Story 2'' has a GoodAngelBadAngel split personality. The "bad angel" personality is the default one, though sometimes her "good angel" side will shine through every now and then to apologize profusely for Bad!Dinah's rudeness.
