* ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse: Huey, Dewie and Louie. The fact that they have all the exact same personality, and are impossible to tell apart without their hats, means that they're basically one boy with three bodies. The early comics even had their dialogue as one speech bubble with three arrows, when they weren't FinishingEachOthersSentences instead. The ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' cartoon subverts this in one episode, when Dewey decides to leave The Dividual when frustrated that no one outside their family can tell them apart, but still sticks to it for the most part. ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales2017'' averts this trope completely, though ''WesternAnimation/QuackPack'' (which isn't based on the comic books) is the first time that the characters showcased separate personalities.

* Manga/{{Black Lagoon}} has the 'vampire twins', going by Hansel and Gretel, who go so far as to switch clothes and names. After one dies, the other one even goes so far as to imitate the other's voice. They're wideley considered some of the creepiest characters throughout the series.

* ''Anime/SevenOfSeven'' has three {{Jerkass}} romantic rivals who often act and speak in unison, in addition to the [[LostInTranslation epoynmous]] character who's a LiteralSplitPersonality.
* The HalfIdenticalTwins from ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'', Luca and Lua, are often treated as one character, which is even reflecting in the name of Team 5D's. While this is partially true and the twins do have a very strong bond, this trope is often subverted. For most of the time, Lua is treated as an extra to his younger sister Luca, mostly because of him being not a Signer until the GrandFinale. Lua is also given more screentime and character interactions, despite Luca being technically more important to the plot and setting than her brother.

* Gestalt from ''Literature/TheRook'' is the extreme version of this trope: four siblings who, collectively, are Gestalt. As in one being with four bodies, constantly seeing through eight eyes. Apparently Gestalt can make the four adopt different mannerisms around people who don't know they're a hivemind, but we never see them bother to be anything other than lockstep creepy in the novel.

* ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry3DantesAwakening'' gives us [[{{KillItWithFire}} Agni]] and [[{{BlowYouAway}} Rudra]] - a pair of [[{{EmpathicWeapon}} sentient demonic swords]], who first appear as DualBoss. When defeated, they offer their services to main character in slicing, dicing, [[{{ArsonMurderAndJaywalking}} and ocassionally commenting on combos he pulls off while using them]]. Even then those two are indivisible - you can't equip them in any way other than simultaneous dual-wielding.

* This is the case with Zen and Rei in ''VideoGame/PersonaQShadowOfTheLabyrinth'' - they function as a single unit, and only take up a single spot in the party roster. Zen casts offensive magic, while Rei casts curative magic. [[spoiler:Late game spoilers reveal that Rei could only use her curative magic when she's near Zen, as said magic was originally Zen's to begin with. Also, after the player completes the fourth labrynth, Rei is kidnapped and Zen becomes a standalone party member.]]

* In the ''Videogame/SuperSmashBros'' series, the character of Videogame/DuckHunt (or Duck Hunt Duo in Europe) consists of the duck, the dog and the hunter, all playable as a single unit.
* In ''Videogame/HotlineMiami2WrongNumber'', Alex and Ash are siblings that are controlled as a single unit, with Alex standing in front with a chainsaw and Ash behind her with guns. If one of them dies, the other drops their weapon and surrenders.
* ''Videogame/MortalKombatX'' has Ferra/Torr, a small child-like female riding upon a large hulking brute. Ferra is the one who does the talking while Torr does the smashing. Their ending reveals them to be members of the same species in different stages of life: Ferra will eventually outgrow Torr and become just as big as him, serving as the mount to another small creature.
* ''Videogame/SuperheroLeagueOfHoboken'' has Zaniac and Toastbuster, a crimefighting duo who joins your league near the end of the game. They're complete opposites, both in looks and abilities (Zaniac is incredibly brainy, while Toastbuster is pure brawn) but insist that they're in fact twin brothers. The good doctors at the Richard Nixon Memorial Hospital wouldn't have lied to them, would they?

* Thumper's sisters in ''Disney/{{Bambi}}'' are a Twindividual: they all look and act identically to each other, to the point where both the [[Disney/BambiII midquel]] and ''Disney's Bunnies'' series drop a sister with absolutely no change to the dynamic. They aren't even given individual names outside of the latter.

* Scully and Hitchcock from ''Series/BrooklynNineNine''are basically [[Series/ParksAndRecreation Jerry Gergich]] if he suddenly became twice as incompetent and mitosed into two people. Additionally, Hitchcock's basic lack of individual identity also seems to seep into his conversations, since in one scene, the entire precinct are unable to figure out if the person he's been talking about the whole time is his wife ''or his dog.'' It's implied this might not be the first time that's happened.

* The Ruzzo brothers from ''Literature/TheVampireFiles'' are Chicago gangsters who look so much alike, and so seldom work apart from each other, that their fellow-gangsters refer to them in the singular as often as the plural (e.g. "Tell Ruzzo to get their butt in the car, already.")
