* Nearing the end of ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle'', [[spoiler:the multiple Syaorans and Sakuras have conversations with each other]]. This is extremely hard to discern when reading these pages, since [[spoiler:they all look alike]]. MindScrew taken UpToEleven.

* Jamie "Multiple Man" Madrox from the MarvelUniverse falls into this on occasion. For instance, when he found out one of his dupes had lived a full life without him (even to the point of having a son), he was stunned that "I named you after my father..."

* Kingdom Hearts 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.

* In ''ProfessorLaytonAndTheUnwoundFuture'', the eponymous professor and his sidekick Luke Triton travel 10 years into the future after receiving a letter from Luke's future self. They have difficulty knowing which one is being referred to when their name is used at first, [[DefiedTrope but Layton comes up with an easy way to distinguish.]]

* Happens in ''Series/DoctorWho'' 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-1 and Romana-2. [[spoiler: River Song's bodies are kept straight as 'Melody Pond', 'Mels' and 'River Song'.]]

->'''Dave:''' And hey, you might even be able to help your past dream self wake up sooner without all that fuss you went through.\\
'''Rose:''' I think the true purpose of this game is to see how many qualifiers we can get to precede the word "self" and still understand what we're talking about.

* For Mesmers in ''GuildWars2'', this is the primary tactic.
* In ''SuperMarioGalaxy'', if you're playing as Mario, you find Luigi in various levels who refers to Mario as "bro". If you're playing as Luigi... you find Luigi in the same places, who refers to (player) Luigi as "me" in the same places in the dialogue.

* In ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Brothers in Arms]]'', Miles Vorkosigan discovers he has a clone, who has been trained to impersonate him and is also (at this time, anyway) known as "Miles". At one point, the two clones are chasing around a large building, leading Miles to ask a bystander "Have you seen me already? Which way did I go?"

* ''Series/{{MADtv}}'': In an Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger spoof where he features in a movie called ''Stolen Identity 3'', [[Film/TheSixthDay Arnold and his clones]] get into endless arguments that basically go "Are you me or am I you?" "I'm not me! I'm you!" "Who am I if I'm not me?!"

** Then there's Pickle Inspector in ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth''. Things start getting out of hand with Past Future Pickle Inspector, and in the end [[spoiler: an infinite number of his past and future selves become ''the whole universe''.]]
** Hell, Dave in general. Being a Knight of Time, there's a bunch of alternate versions of him from stable time loops and splintered timelines in existence at any given time. At one point, Jade looks for him with her omniscient goggle and finds fourteen different versions of him.
