However, it's only at the very end of season 6 that he knowingly does this [[spoiler:immediately before almost all of the AIs are destroyed in an EMP]].

* In ''WebAnimation/FiftyPercentOff'', instead of having internal monologues, [[CloudCuckoolander Haru]] has a whole collective of Harus in his mind who like to argue, play board games, sing the ''WesternAnimation/{{Ducktales}}'' theme song, put on wrestling matches, murder each other...

* SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} does that in a way that BreaksTheFourthWall: he has entire discussions with his own thought boxes. Of which he has two distinct sets: the first set was originally the standard yellow narration boxes often seen in comics, except that he interacts with them. Some time in the 2000's, a second set appeared, white boxes written in Courier, as though it was being written on a typewriter. Thus far, the two voices haven't developed separate personalities, and bear a suspicious resemblance to Crow and Tom Servo. This being Deadpool, he is aware that the reader can see them.

* In ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'', Momoka and "the Other Momoka" do this sometimes. We later learn her mother Ouka has a similar situation.

* [[SplitPersonality SplitPersonalities]] Shirou and Shiho from ''Manga/MyMonsterSecret'' can talk inside their mind, but they can also take control of separate body parts, and talk to each other from the parts they control. The fact that there are voices coming out from places without mouths is never addressed.

* Since their rebirth as a child ''SelfDemonstrating/{{Loki}}'' has this. [[spoiler:In ''Comicbook/JourneyIntoMystery'' Kid!Loki's pet magpie, and evil advisor, Ikol existed only in his head and was the remnant of his old self's consciousness. In ''Comicbook/YoungAvengers'' and later ''Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard'' their BodySnatcher old self has the Kid around, who acts as conscience.]]

* ''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.
