* 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.]]

* In {{Bleach}}, ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Shinigami who chat can communicate with their Zanpakuto 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 basically speaking to reflections of themselves. 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 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 Inner Hollow represents his Shinigami and Hollow power while Old Man Zangetsu reflects a piece of Yhwach attached to Ichigo). They... well, let's just say there's some conflict between them.represents his Quincy powwer.]]

* ''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…

** Naruto and his shadow clones talk to one another as if they actually have the same personality but different identities. It's never clearly explained exactly what a shadow clone is, other than the solid version of a clone technique [[note]]Supposedly, they are chakra constructs meant to imitate their creator in a way shadows imitate our movement.[[/note]].

* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' 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 reread the series with this trope in mind every conversation between them changes completely.
