* In the second season of WesternAnimation/YoungJustice, this is how Blue Beetle's arguments with his sentient [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman armor]] plays out, causing his teammates to think of him as a little bit... "special".
* This is taken UpToEleven with the appropriately named villain Billy Numerous on ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''. He has the ability to create ''hundreds'' of duplicates of himself, and the duplicates talk to each other ''a lot'', referring to each other as "Billy" as they do so.

Very important: ''do not'' confuse ThinkingOutLoud with this. Thinking Out Loud is not a symptom of mental illness in most cases[[note]](and is actually a ''recommended coping mechanism'' for ADD/ADHD, some learning disabilities, those recovering from a stimulant drug addiction, or similar persons with attention or concentration deficit issues).[[/note]]

In RealLife, multiple-personality selves do talk to each other or can learn to do so. This communication is actually a good sign and is encouraged by doctors.

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.
