* In ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'', it's heavily implied and later confirmed in the manga that [[spoiler:Beatrice, Shannon and Kanon are all the same person; their true identity is Sayo Yasuda, who originally created them as "characters" that [[AmbiguousGender s/he]] pretends to be in order to cope with his/her low self-esteem and gender issues]]. However, in a twist on this trope, [[spoiler:while these three characters are often shown interacting with one another to the viewer, the catch is that no one InUniverse ever sees them together outside of fantasy scenes (which are narrated by Beatrice, so [[UnreliableNarrator you can't trust them]])]].

* In the ''[[Franchise/DotHack .hack//]]'' prequel novel ''[[LightNovel/DotHackAIBuster AI Buster]]'', [[spoiler:the two main characters, Albireo and Watarai,]] turn out to be the same guy. The franchise does this a lot, actually, made easier by the characters' use of online aliases.

** ''Literature/MurderOnTheOrientExpress'', [[spoiler:Mrs. Hubbard]] is actually [[spoiler: Linda Arden, Daisy Armstrong's grandmother]]. This is, to the best of my recollection, not foreshadowed in any way, except to know that the latter is an extremely gifted actress.
** ''One, Two, Buckle My Shoe'', [[spoiler: Mabelle Sainsbury Seale is actually Mrs. Albert Chapman, who herself is ''really'' Alistair Blunt's first wife, Gerda, who's been posing as his cousin!]] This is convoluted even by Christie standards.
