* In ''Literature/PleaseDontTellMyParentsYouBelieveHer'', there are two Pennies walking around, one in the original organic body who identifies themself as Penny's power, and a robot which is carrying Penny's soul. [[spoiler:Except, as it turns out, they're both parts of the same whole, as well as the "Heart of Gold" part of her, which is her most noble aspects, currently trapped in an iron heart]].

** It also leads to some rather bizarre court cases since there are some legal issues where the gate clones are not always considered separate individuals. In one case, a person had two death penalties against him for Manual Operation under the Influence. When his gate clone turns up, the judge rules that, since the clone was created after the commission of the crime, it is perfectly legal for them to apply the second death penalty to the gate clone.

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'' is filled with this, to the point that this is practically the essence of most of the things that happened in all the side titles and the second main games of the series. Sora, Roxas, their Data versions as well as their memory editions are implied to be the same person though they all try to get their own unique identities and this causes a major emotional mayhem for them. Roxas eventually realizes this and gives up. It is also shown that the Sora we know has his heart connected with Ventus making him practically [[{{Expy}} another]] version of him. Latter it is shown that Roxas has the same heart as Ventus as well as his looks. Roxas' personality has an uncanny resemblance to the combine personalty of Ventus and Vanitas, who was yet another part of Ventus having the same appearance as a black-haired Sora. Xion is practically a female version of Sora with the looks of Kairi as Sora remembered her.

* The protagonist of "...And it Comes Out Here" by Creator/LesterDelRey has a few moments of pronoun confusion when talking to his younger self.
-->I'm you thirty years from now, or you're me. I remember just how you feel; I felt the same way when he--that is, of course, I or we--came back to tell me about it, thirty years ago.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** Happens more often than not, with all the time travel, alternate dimensions and clones the show's got going on. It's also meant that fans have had to come up with ways of keeping things straight. The Doctor's [[TheNthDoctor multiple bodies]] are referred to by numbered regenerations -- for example, Creator/TomBaker is "Four" and Creator/MattSmith is "Eleven". When they're the same regeneration, other identifying markers are used -- for example, the two versions of the Doctor running around in Season Five are called "Normal Doctor" and "Jacket!Doctor". The Master is recognized by the actor playing him, and Romana is kept straight by numbering her as Romana I and Romana II. [[spoiler: River Song's bodies are kept straight as "Melody Pond", "Mels" and "River Song".]]

** ''Android at Arms'' (1971): The protagonists wake on a strange world and learn that they have been kidnapped and stored as {{Human Popsicle}}s, while being replaced by [[RobotMe android duplicates]]. The question eventually arises, which one is the RobotMe (a RidiculouslyHumanRobot by necessity) and which is the original, and how to prove it? When the main character, Andas, confronts a much older version of himself on his homeworld, both are deeply shaken - each believes he's real, but how could a RobotMe be such a RidiculouslyHumanRobot as to do the various things each has done? (The protagonist refers to his older counterpart as "the false Andas"). [[spoiler:Another variation happens later, when he and one of his companions wind up in an AlternateUniverse, and he confronts a dying version of himself.]]

* Averted in one ComicBook/CalvinAdHobbes arc where Calvin and Hobbes use their time machine at 6:30 and travel two hours ahead so they can grab the completed homework assignment, then both Calvins go back an hour to find out why 7:30 Calvin didn't do it. Each Calving refers to the others by the time they're from, and fortunately are all visually distinct (6:30 has goggles, 8:30 has goggles and is in his pyjamas).

* The infinite Ricks of ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' are pretty relaxed about living in a society composed entirely of themselves and an equal infinity of Morties. It does, however, lead to some peculiar grammar.
-->'''Rick''': Fuck me, pal!
-->'''Also Rick''': Fuck ''you?'' No, no, no: fuck ''me''.

* Averted by the Fel clones in the HandOfThrawn duology. They have major, ''major'' [[CloningBlues clone angst]], but each of them has named himself something different, dresses differently, and has different hair. They keep a common family name, Devist, and let people think of them as just a really close and fairly insular family, because they're desperately afraid of being discovered and [[FantasticRacism killed for being clones]]. A brief stretch where one, Carib, is the viewpoint character and has a momentary existential meltdown ends as he strengthens his resolve by reminding himself what he's worked for.

* Jade Sinclair (Generator) and her creations in the WhateleyUniverse. Jade's creations aren't really inventions. They're objects populated by a psychic clone of herself, including the character Shroud, who is claiming to be her sister Jinn. Even Jade can't keep her pronouns straight when talking about her selves, to the point that it is a RunningGag.
