* Rather confusingly done in ''ComicBook/TheLongHalloween''. When the Holiday Killer is apprehended and revealed to be [[spoiler:Alberto Falcone]], he tells the police that there was ''another'' Holiday Killer, but he refuses to elaborate. Franchise/{{Batman}} interprets this as a reference to Harvey Dent aka Two-Face, who had killed Carmine Falcone on Halloween and thus (metaphorically) inherited Holiday's mantle. But in the very last scene, [[spoiler:Harvey's wife, Gilda, monologues that ''she'' was actually the one responsible for Holiday's first victims]]. Whether they were telling the truth, or had simply lost touch with reality due to grief, is not entirely clear.

* [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] in ''Film/{{Psycho II}}'', wherein [[spoiler:Lila Loomis and (initially) her daughter Mary]] are trying to drive Norman Bates back into insanity and murder by [[spoiler:impersonating his seemingly long-dead mother]] (i.e. the source of his troubled mental state), while [[spoiler:Emma Spool]] simultaneously commits a series of murders and [[spoiler:claims to be Norman's actual mother]].

* In ''Discworld/{{Maskerade}}'', the major break in the case happens when Granny realizes [[spoiler: there are two Opera Ghosts]]. One Opera Ghost is the hapless but good Walter Plinge, who used the Ghost to hide out under the opera house and do some other mysterious but not evil things. The other is [[spoiler: Salzella]] and actually killed the dead opera members.

* Eventually it's revealed that there are two masterminds behind Monobear, the villain of ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'', collectively known as Super High-School Level Despair. [[spoiler: There's a subversion, though: the mastermind who was manually controlling the bear murdered her accomplice early in the story, by baiting her into breaking the rules. This was done to hide the fact that they had [[TwinSwitch swapped identities]].]]
* A possible theory about the truth of Rokkenjima in ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' is that the events are caused by two teams working independent of each other, one planning and one opportunistic. [[spoiler: The first one is the servants and one of the siblings (which one depends on the arc) led by Yasu who plans the murders (the one among the sibling and a few of the servants think it's just a game) in order to become free from his/her fate or that Battler solves the case and finds out the truth. The other one would be Kyrie who took a chance when the gold was found and is hinted to be the main culprit.]]
* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyTrialsAndTribulations'' has between one and [[spoiler:four]] antagonists for the final case of the original trilogy depending on how you count.

** [[spoiler:Kinda averted in]] case 5 [[spoiler: since Yew didn't kill anyone, this time. She just helped with the body disposal.]]
** The sequel follows by having multiple "killers" in case one. The problem is figuring out (and proving) who did what and why. [[spoiler:[=DeKiller=] attempted to kill the president, the killer of the bodyguard was the other bodyguard and the indicted murder only agreed to help stage a fake assassination of the president.]]

* ''Literature/JudgeDee'': After a retired general is found dead the day after his birthday, with clues pointing at a local painter (whose father claimed the general was a traitor and a coward, and was kicked out of the army for it), the Judge investigates and discovers a tiny arrowhead embedded in the general's throat, along with a poisoned fruit. It turns out the general was wanted dead by two people: a ([[PosthumousCharacter now-dead]]) former governor who knew the general ''was'' a traitor[[note]]he'd bribed an enemy into retreating by sacrificing part of his army- the part Tsiao Tai was in[[/note]], and the general's son, who was having an affair with one of his father's concubines, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ten_Abominations a major no-no in Tang society]] (it's outright referred to as incest). The son gave his father a box of poisoned fruit, hoping to blame the murder on the painter, while the governor had given the general a booby-trapped quill, to be used on the day he wrote his memoirs. The quill killed the general, but the Judge orders the general's son to commit suicide (see major no-no above).

* In the sex comedy ''Video Vixens'', a film-within-the-film, an X-rated ''Dragnet'' parody, involves a serial rapist who is actually identical twins; one would go out raping while the other is seen in public doing something mundane as an alibi. The next night they'd [[TwinSwitch switch places]]. (Yes, despite the description, it's a comedy.)

* In the first ''Film/{{Scream 1996}}'', it turns out that there were two killers. This was also true in ''Film/{{Scream 2}}'', but by then it was expected. (However, ''Film/{{Scream 3}}'' [[MetaTwist had only one killer]]. But ''Film/{{Scream 4}}'' returned with the duo of Ghostfaces.)
