* In the "Ventriloquist's Story" in ''Film/DeadOfNight'', ventriloquist Maxwell Frere (Creator/MichaelRedgrave) smashes up his puppet/DemonicDummy "Hugo" (who, it is strongly implied, channels Maxwell's own SplitPersonality) after "Hugo" tauntingly threatens to join Maxwell's rival ventriloquist. Maxwell is placed into a mental institution and goes into a catatonic state until his doctors bring in the rival ventriloquist to try and give him a jolt. Upon seeing the rival, Maxwell smiles and opens his mouth, but the voice that comes out of his throat (his lips remaining unmoving) is that of "Hugo".

* In ''{{Psyren}}'' when Amamiya is shot [[spoiler: Abyss, her other personality created from her suppressed emotions takes over momentarily.]]
* Played with in ''SamuraiDeeperKyo''. In the manga version, Demon Eyes Kyo is a legendary killer whose mind has been sealed inside the body of Mibu Kyoshiro, but occasionally rises to the surface. In the anime version, Demon Eyes Kyo is the dark side of Kyo's personality that escaped and became an EnemyWithout, then was reabsorbed back into Kyo. In both versions, Kyo eventually assumes full-time control of Kyoshiro's body.

After months or years of suffering a SplitPersonality, EnemyWithin, or SuperPoweredEvilSide, the character is cured! ... by having the weaker, "sane" personality lose all control over the body to their inner evil. Like the slow erosion of a mountain, [[JekyllAndHyde Jekyll]] has succumbed to [[JekyllAndHyde Hyde]]'s [[ImplacableMan implacable]] [[PassionIsEvil id-like force]], leaving nothing but the shell of who they were.

* Born vampires from ''YoungDracula'' all go through an attempt at this when get their full vampire status. How strong-willed they are seems to determine how much of their original personality is left afterward.
* Implied to have happened at the end of a ''{{Married With Children}}'' episode in which Bud's "cool" personality took over. It had absolutely no visible impact on future episodes (though perhaps that's the joke; Bud's so uncool that even his cool side is uncool).

* Subverted in ''Manga/AhMyGoddess''. Belldandy's sister, Urd, being half-demon and half-goddess, forcibly has her good and evil halves split apart by Mara, and when they are rejoined, she finds that her demonic side is slowly slipping away, which would eventually result in her becoming a full-blown goddess. However, Keiichi and her sisters refuse to let the Urd they've come to now disappear, so they summon the only person other than the Almighty One (whom they assume won't help them since he would rather Urd become a total goddess) with enough power to safely return Urd to stable demon/angel form--the ruler of all demons and her mother, Hild.
