* ''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.)

* [[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 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]]. Ultimately, [[spoiler:Mrs. Spool]] [[CollidingCriminalConspiracies kills]] [[spoiler:Lila]], Mary [[spoiler:tries to kill Norman]] based on the mistaken assumption that he was actually responsible for the murders (and [[DramaticIrony becomes the main police suspect for them herself as a result]]), and Norman finally rejoins the fun by [[spoiler:killing Mrs. Spool]] and resuming his life as a slasher.
