* The Literature/WhateleyUniverse has Jade. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in the fact that Jade's main power is in splitting off telekinetic manifestations of her soul/spirit - which makes it a lot easier for her to do that than it would for most people. Also either [[JustifiedTrope justified]] or subverted in that each manifestation ''does'' have the same memories and experiences as Jade when they first split off from her - it's only time that changes this. [[spoiler: Too long away from each other tends to lead to Jade passing out when they reunite, due to SensoryOverload while her brain assimilates the memories.]]

* In ''Literature/TheWorldShuffler'', at one point, O'Leary is "sick, freezing, starving, hung-over, and dyspeptic", not to mention lost and frustrated, and he begins talking to himself. And answering himself. He acknowledges--to himself--that it's a sign of insanity, but responds "Poof, what's a little touch of schizophrenia, among all my other ailments?"

Added DiffLines:

* Trollian memos in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' have a [[TimeyWimeyBall transtimeline function]], enabling the characters to talk to each other in real time while still being hours or days away from each other, sometimes resulting in this trope when a character starts arguing with their future or past self. Best exemplified by a conversation in which one character has an argument with themselves ten minutes into the future.

*** Or Scarface might actually BE alive and a vessel of the evils over 300 hanged men committed. Or something. [[DependingOnTheWriter It varies]]. though with the original Ventriloquist now dead and a [[DistaffCounterpart female replacement]] having shown up, it's somewhat more credible, although she's visibly as crazy as the original. Scarface's explanation is simply that he was looking for a more comfortable place to sit.
* [[Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk Bruce Banner]] and his many personalities have done this, but generally only the ones not "active" at the time. At one point it was lampshaded that it was just a metaphor for his inner struggle and he was just imagining it.

* Triplicate Girl/Triad from the ''ComicBook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}}'' does this very often when her three bodies are separate, the three of them talking amongst themselves and even arguing at times. This is especially true for her Post-''ComicBook/{{Zero|Hour}} [[CrisisCrossover Hour]]'' reboot version.(While her powers are common for the inhabitants of her planet, this sort of behavior is not; they consider it a form of insanity, although her grandmother insisted it was natural.)
