* Margaret Millar's Edgar-award winning thriller ''Beast In View'' is the UrExample in the crime genre of the "the villain is actually the hero's or [=PoV=] character's evil alternate personality" idea. Unfortunately, it later became a groanworthy cliche due to simplistic and/or logistically impossible examples.

** The "Other Momoka" as well as Private Tamama. Both appear sweet and harmless at first, but they hide an extremely jealous and possessive side that occasionally comes out when a perceived "rival" for the object of their affection appears.

Among psychologists and mental health professionals, Dissociative Identity Disorder is probably one of the most controversial 'disorders' ever. In real life, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dissociative_identity_disorder Dissociative Identity Disorder]] (or DID) is a condition believed to be most common among survivors of sexual and/or physical abuse that occurs in their childhood/teenage years. There is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dissociative_identity_disorder#Controversy some controversy as to whether or not it even exists]], because virtually all cases seem to occur only in the U.S, the U.K, and Canada -- in other words, where movies that have protagonists with DID are popular (''Film/{{Sybil}}'', ''The Faces Of Eve'', etc). And where patients have excellent health insurance. In point of fact, [[http://io9.com/5917294/what-disease-did-sybil-the-worlds-most-famous-multiple+personality-patient-actually-have Sybil, the Trope Codifier herself,]] [[http://io9.com/5865263/whats-the-truth-behind-multiple-personality-disorder?tag=multiple-personality-disorder may not have had DID at all.]] Diagnoses of DID skyrocketed following the release of ''Sybil'' from maybe one or two diagnosed cases a year to several thousand. This suggests to many psychologists that it's less an actual disorder and more of a fad, since otherwise there'd be a better distribution of diagnoses in other countries, and it wouldn't follow movie trends like this. The actual diagnosis rate of DID is maybe <1 in 1000 to 1 in 10,000. It's exceptionally rare. It's normal to act differently around other groups of people (we're obviously going to act differently around friends, family, or employers) -- blacking out for extended periods of time and 'losing control', with no recollection of it, is not.

* The British horror AnthologyFilm ''Film/DeadOfNight'' has one story about a ventriloquist, Maxwell Frere (Creator/MichaelRedgrave), who believes that his [[DemonicDummy dummy, Hugo, is alive]] and wants to leave him for another ventriloquist. The truth is [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation open to interpretation]], but Redgrave's performance strongly implies that Hugo is Maxwell's split personality, as there are shots where Maxwell's lips are moving even when it's "Hugo" who is talking.

If the two personalities are aware of each other, expect a GollumMadeMeDoIt situation to develop. Resolving it may require the weaker of the two to say "ImNotAfraidOfYou!" If the SplitPersonality gets its own body, it becomes either a LiteralSplitPersonality or an EnemyWithout (if said personality is antagonistic or [[SuperpoweredEvilSide evil]]).
