* In ''Webomic/{{Drowtales}}'', [[OurFairiesAreDifferent fae]], such as elves, are vulnerable to tainting, meaning that their "souls" have been infected by a demon. Usually, the demon will gradually consume the tainted victim, but it is also possible for the fae to merge their "soul" with the demon, leaving the fae's own personality dominant, making them immune to further DemonicPossession, and sometimes giving them access to special abilities originating from the demon.

* In the season 6 finale of ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', Sam is stuck in a MentalWorld where his identity has split into three personalities: original Sam, Soulless soulless Sam, and the mentally broken Sam who's been [[FateWorseThanDeath tortured in the Cage.Lucifer's cage]]. Finding his way out of there requires the other two to merge back into him. Unfortunately, soulless Sam is trying to murder original Sam to keep that from happening, and the broken Sam's memories are so [[GoMadFromTheRevelation traumatic]] that [[spoiler: Sam has to be admitted to a psychiatric hospital in season 7.]]

RealLife multiple personalities report YMMV on this experience. Some who have gone through it deliberately de-integrated later, feeling that the whole is ''less'' than the sum of the parts. ''Literature/WhenRabbitHowls'' is written by members of a multiple collective who spoke out vehemently against the idea as a form of murder. To them, it's better to learn how to communicate and work together as a SplitPersonalityTeam.

The resulting merged personality is usually a composite of the parts that is well and truly psychologically stable, this is especially true if they were an [[TheMcCoy id]], [[TheKirk ego]], and [[TheSpock super ego]]. If they were [[GoodAngelBadAngel moral]] or [[RedOniBlueOni temperamental]] opposites, the resulting merged personality will keep traits of both. This merger includes combat ability and powers, so if the character had a [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass moron and a badass]] coexisting, the united whole will be a {{Badass}} all the time... while occasionally tripping on banana peels. Similarly, if the reason for the personality split was to seal awesome cosmic powers away (resulting in a SuperPoweredEvilSide; see both EnemyWithin and EnemyWithout) the united self will have full control over these powers without risk of SuperPowerMeltdown or corruption.

* Happens to Tahiri Veila and her implanted Vong personality, Riina Kwaad, in ''[[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse Force Heretic 3: Rebirth]]''. Riina, being a [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Proud Warrior Race Girl]], had attempted a SplitPersonalityTakeover, but settled on the compromise when she realized that "killing" Tahiri would be disastrous for both of them.

* Despite providing the picture, ''Series/{{Jekyll}}'' averts this. Even though Jackman and Hyde agree to work together, they retain their individual personalities and [[SuperpoweredEvilSide and powers or lack of them]]. Their alliance is simply a case of switching voluntarily depending on which would be most useful at any time, and both of them agreeing to devote their respective talents towards the common goal of saving Jackman's family.

* In ''Anime/ShamanicPrincess'', the heroine, Tiara, confronts her uncontrolled magical powers in the form of a shadowy, seductive EnemyWithout. It gets the better of her at first, but eventually Tiara realizes its power is a result of her fear, so [[ImNotAfraidOfYou she asserts herself]] and [[NeckLift shows it who's boss]]. It merges into Tiara, giving her access to her SuperMode for the first time.
