* A variation occurs in ''Manga/ElfenLied'' as [[spoiler: the good personality takes over the evil (if [[TheWoobie tragic and even pitiful]]) one but neither personality is okay with the {{omnicidal maniac}} side taking over at the end of the manga, leading to a {{shoot the dog}} moment from Kouta.]]

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Hollow transformations consist of the original personality being largely destroyed in favour of something created from raw instinct. The effect is permanent; even if a hollow can resist the effect (such as Sora), it's only a temporary measure at best. The exception is Ichigo who did eventually learn how to control his hollow power [[spoiler: and it's eventually revealed to be the basis for his shinigami power and his zanpakutou's sealed form]].

The effect is permanent; even if a hollow can resist the effect (such as Sora), it's only a temporary measure at best. The effect ''does'' lessen as a Hollow goes through its stages of evolution and their personality reverts closer to their original as their never-ending hunger becomes sated (Adjuchas and Vasto Lorde level, as well as becoming an Arrancar), but that takes a long time and a ''lot'' of devoured creatures to get to.

* ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' has a scene where, after being led along by the two, you finally confront [[spoiler: Jeanette and Therese Voermann -- wait, make that Tourette Voermann. One half of her face is done up in Therese's professional businesswoman style, while the other half is done up in Jeanette's slutty schoolgirl style, and the two sides speak in turns about wanting to kill the other]]. Depending on the dialogue you choose, either [[spoiler: Jeanette kills Therese, Therese kills Jeanette, or the two personalities decide to put aside their differences and coexist.]]

* Averted in the sequel ''Film/TheFlyII'' with Brundle and Veronica's son Martin. The murderous rampage against his oppressors is all him. They are bad enough that this isn't a MoralEventHorizon for Martin.

They him, as shown where he actually goes out his way to avoid harming a dog and sparing his LoveInterest Beth Logan, implying that his mind has largely remained unchanged despite his body's transformation. Said oppressors are bad enough that this isn't a MoralEventHorizon for Martin.

* In ''TwistedMetal: Head-On'', [[spoiler: Marcus Kane gives into Needles Kane, aka Sweet Tooth. Interestingly, however, it's not a complete takeover, but rather they seem to be working together, thereby making Dark Tooth and Tower Tooth (the two cars they drive together) the strongest in the game.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VisualNovel/CinderellaPhenomenon'', [[spoiler:Varg was created by Mythos as a darker split personality of Lucette's knight Fritz that would gradually take over Fritz. Varg can initially come out only at night and can be banished by Lucette uttering the trust word Fritz told her, but later on he can come out during the day and Lucette can no longer easily call Fritz back. Fortunately for Fritz, however, his feelings for Lucette rubbed off on Varg and Varg ultimately erases himself so that Lucette can have Fritz back... provided you made the right choices for Fritz's good ending, that is]].

* This is why Moka never takes off the rosary herself in ''RosarioToVampire'': the outer Moka would be replaced by the inner Moka forever. [[spoiler:This doesn't stop her from trying it anyway.]]

* Near the end of ''{{Planescape Torment}}'' you get trapped in a place where you encounter three of your previous "incarnations". One wants to take you over so and another simply wants to destroy you. If you manage to forcibly take over the other two or get them to merge with you, you will gain their memories (and a ton of XP). If you fail, you have to destroy them and their memories are lost forever. The third takes no convincing to get him to merge with you and is more than happy to.
