** Twilight and Sparkle were born on the same day to the same parents, making them twins in a weird sort of way. They split their original name when they became two independant ponies.

* Solid and Liquid Snake (of ''Franchise/MetalGear'') are twins named after opposing states of matter, while the third brother is named Solidus. This has led to jokes (and more than a few [[UrbanLegendOfZelda Urban Legends Of Zelda]]) that there may be a fourth Gas Snake out there somewhere (and knowing Kojima this may very well be possible). [[note]]That's not the only suggested name for a hypothetical SeparatedAtBirth twin. See the Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} article [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_states_of_matter List of states of matter]] for a pretty conclusive list. Plasma Snake? Supercritical Fluid Snake? Colloid Snake? Electron-degenerate Matter Snake? [[http://gigaville.com/comic.php?id=47 Bose-Einsteinium Condensate Snake]]? [[/note]]

** Interestingly enough, Solid and Liquid go by "Snake" and "Liquid", respectively, averting this trope in dialogue at least. Also, this trope is played straight with their birth names, David and Eli, being references to TheBible.
