* Mizumi of ''Manga/ReturnToLabyrinth'' can remove an aspect of a person's personality to make a clone but if the original dies, then so does the clone and vice versa.

* The InteractiveFiction game ''Savoir-Faire'' has a magic system based around linking objects so that what happens to one happens to the other as well. People can also be linked, and it's said that members of feuding aristocratic families are often linked to one another as a sort of hostage thing, so that one family can't harm members of the other without also hurting their own relatives.

* In WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fics, this is often the case with Celestia and Luna and their respective celestial bodies, either permanently or just when manipulating them. This often comes with a dose of RequiredSecondaryPowers, as implied in [[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/382335/no-nose-knows No Nose Knows]], when Luna is raising the sun for a sick Celestia:
-->“She is?” Celestia asked, and she groaned when Bean nodded. “Ugh. She better not complain about it then.”
-->“About what? The hives?”
-->“No so much that. She—”
-->“HOT! HOT! HOT!”
-->“That—” Celestia said with a longsuffering sigh “—is what I meant.”
-->Bean looked on in amused horror as Luna, from within a magical shield, pranced into the room and blew out the small flame that had been burning on one of her wingtips. There was smoke rising from her back and from a few patches of singed fur on her sides, and it appeared that a few of her feathers had been turned to charcoal.
-->“You are hereby prohibited from ever getting sick again.” Luna announced, as she checked her other wing for any open flames. “And are you completely sure there is no way to turn down the temperature on that thing?”

* Comes up in both ''VideoGame/NiNoKuni'' and ''VideoGame/NiNoKuniIIRevenantKingdom''. In each world, there is someone who shares the same soul as the other. Something that happens to one will happen to the other. Usually the same soul cannot exist in the same world twice, so usually travel is impossible. This is a major plot point in both games.

** Paramecia-types can occasionally have this problem, depending on the power and if it has any transformations. Nico Robin will feel the pain of any attacks against one of her detached, sprouted limbs, and any structural damage suffered by Capone Bege's walking fortress form will be reflected as an injury when he transforms back.

* ''Literature/VillainsByNecessity'': This is the downside of having {{familiar}}'s in the book's universe-anything which the familiar suffers the mage shares. Thus when Nightshade, Valerie's familiar, kills a good mage's bird familiar, the mage dies too. Sam and Arcie exploit the fact earlier too by threatening Nightshade so Valerie will release control of the group.

* ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' features twin brothers Amiboshi and Suboshi, who felt everything that happened to the other, a la ''The Corsican Brothers''. Also, for a while, Yui was synchronized to Miaka, so that (for instance) when the latter was drowning, the former couldn't breathe.

** The Stands are effectively astral projections, and damaging them results in corresponding damage to its user. Additionally, in Part 3 a Stand user named Steely Dan had the power to inflict a "Corsican Brothers"-type bond on another person (for example, getting tapped in the leg with a stick led to his victim almost breaking his and having his back scratched caused the sensation of being flayed alive). He used this on Jotaro's grandfather and threatened to kill him if Jotaro didn't play along. He then proceeds to abuse him until the Stand is removed, upon which Jotaro (having written down all the abuse suffered against his person) beats the crap out of him with his own Stand. ''For three whole pages''.
