* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Shinigami can communicate with their Zanpakutou spirits within their Inner Worlds. The spirits can also manifest outside the Shinigami, sometimes visible to only the Shinigami and sometimes visible to everyone. The Zanpakutou are reflections of the Shinigami's soul and represent their true selves. Some shinigami have more than one spirit, although that's rare. Ichigo has two spirits because he has power from multiple origins. [[spoiler:The Inner Hollow represents his Shinigami and Hollow power while Old Man Zangetsu represents his Quincy powwer.]]

* Blitzwing of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' is an odd case that ''isn't'' a good/evil split, but rather calm/angry/manic. All three are evil, but they tend to argue over the correct course of action. Oddly, this doesn't make him any less effective.
** Blitzwing's arguments with himself are actually reasonably rare, as his personalities usually have the same objective. Clashes between his Icy and Hothead personas are usually solved by Random.
*** Though fans often like to make use of this fact: [[http://transformers-mosaic.deviantart.com/art/Mixed-Messages-134614475 here]]

** This turns out to be the case with [[spoiler:Shannon, Kanon and Beatrice]], who are all personas of [[spoiler:Yasu]], and whose discussions symbolize the conflicts that exist [[spoiler:in Yasu's heart]]. This is done so seamlessly that you most likely won't notice it until much later in the story, and when you [[RewatchBonus reread the series]] with this trope in mind every conversation between them changes completely.

* In {{Bleach}}, Shinigami who chat with their Zanpakuto are basically speaking to reflections of themselves. [[spoiler:The most in-depth look we get of this is when Ichigo speaks to White Zangetsu, the part of the weapon that actually reflects Ichigo himself (Black Zangetsu reflects a piece of Yhwach attached to Ichigo). They... well, let's just say there's some conflict between them.]]

* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'': Invoked when Shinji talks to the [[EldritchAbomination Lilith's ghost]]. She tells him that she's sort of a memory in his mind, and Shinji thinks "Oh, great, now I'm talking to myself".
-->"I'm not really here" she said quickly with a slight smile as the observation passed through his mind. "And no, you are not loosing your grip on reality" she assured him.\\
"After everything that's happened, I am not so sure" he replied somewhat sarcastically.\\
"Understandable" she nodded. "If it helps, think of me… as an echo of the events, a shadow without form, nothing more then a memory in your mind".\\
"Well uh… you're a rather… talkative memory" he replied, then stopped. Oh God, am I talking to myself now he asked in despair…
