* ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}'' doesn't make it explicit, but his personality is meant to be the sum result of the Internet (fortunately it's the mid-1990s and the Internet didn't quite have the bit rate yet for its [[TheInternetIsForPorn major purpose]]) and he flips back and forth between the superpowered nutbag Freakazoid and the very different personality of Dexter Douglas. However, they seem to share the same girlfriend...

* The ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' version of the Hulk really takes this all the way. Hulk and Banner are definitely two different people and can talk to each other. As you can imagine, the Hulk is not a terribly good listener... but this incarnation of the Hulk is more sapient than most other versions and can be more reasonable than you would expect.

* ''Comicbook/{{Deadman}}'' has shades of this; he's a ghost who can possess people, granting them his acrobatic skills and reflexes, and giving him whatever abilities the host may naturally possess.

* In Creator/RoseofPollux's ''Metamorphosis'', [[spoiler: the Chameleon-arched Jamie's]] alter-ego, who claims the title of [[spoiler: the Piper]], can be seen as this. He's seemingly smarter and more physically hardy, but significantly less compassionate than [[spoiler: Jamie]].

* In VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld, Emil gains enhanced fighting abilities when in Ratatosk Mode. Additionally, his [[RedEyesTakeWarning eyes turn red]] and his voice deepens. [[spoiler: [[InvertedTrope However, it turns out to be an inversion]]: Emil is actually an Underpowered Alter Ego that Ratatosk fabricated so he could recuperate after almost being killed.]]

* BirdyTheMighty, Tsutomu can't use the powers of Birdy, even though it's technically her body, but they can communicate and switch with a moment's notice (without invoking a HenshinHero) once they've agreed they need to work together. Sometimes though, Birdy just steals him away when she needs to run off to do her work.

* In ''Series/{{Noob}}'', the group's incompentent healer Sparadrap sometimes get "borrowed" by his usual player's younger and much more competent brother. With the series happening mostly in DeepImmersionGaming, it plays out as if Sparadrap had two personalities : that of his usual player most of the time, during which he's completely useless, and that of his younger brother, who can actually use his abilities correctly, making him able to fend for himslef and help his guildmates.

* The {{Comicbook/Marvel 2099}} version of Comicbook/CaptainAmerica in ''{{Comicbook/Secret Wars|2015}} 2099'' is a mild-mannered and pacifistic woman named Roberta who is completely unaware than danger or a trigger phrase can cause her to gain instant muscles and a hard but heroic personality. Her fellow Avengers (and her husband, who is secretly Alchemax Operative One-Nine-Four-One) work to keep this from her. Captain America, meanwhile, knows she turns into Roberta, but sees them as different people.

* [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] is the Superpowered Alter Ego to 10-year-old audience surrogate Billy Batson. In UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks they were definitely separate personalities. Nowadays, however, after ''CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'', Marvel is a SuperMode of the same child personality who acts often in a very childlike and innocent way but there is still some noticeable change due to the addition of the Wisdom of Solomon to the character.

* ''TheMightyThor'' does not have a conventional secret identity. Rather, he exchanged places with a mortal much like DC's Captain Marvel (above). This has been subject to occasional exceptions (such as during Walt Simonson's run), but Thor existing without his mortal counterpart never seems to last long.

* Johnny Blaze the first Comicbook/GhostRider was like this originally being possessed by a demon when in his Rider form. Danny Ketch the second Ghost Rider also had shades of this but his was the ghost of a distant ancestor seeking vengeance. Then both of them were retconned to have their powers be angelic in nature with it zig-zagging back and forth if they had control over the powers or if the powers came with another personality.

** The original Series/{{Ultraman}} was something of an anomaly though, as it was never completely clear to what extent Hayata and Ultraman's personalities were merged as "Hayata". The implication seems to be that it's really Hayata the whole time, but got his memory erased as a side-effect of being brought back to life at the end of the show.
