* This is a technique sometimes used in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', originally by Tenshinhan, albeit in {{filler}} Piccolo (And once Krillin, oddly enough) loves using it as well. Tenshinan originally used it as a combat technique, but this became less useful as the character got stronger due to each clone having a fraction of the original's strength. Piccolo normally uses it for training purposes, allowing him to spar with himself.

* The hero of the manga ''{{Akumetsu}}'' is a terrorist clone army, and manages to make this ridiculously cool. His trademark mask blows his head off when he dies, concealing this slightly (slightly) from the authorities, and also transmits all the memories and consciousness of the dying member to his base in space, where they make a new copy. Kind of makes a cheat of the 'I'm willing to die to wipe out evil' thing.

* In ''MahouSenseiNegima'', Negi attempts to make a single copy of himself using a [[{{Onmyodo}} traditional Japanese magic that animates a paper doll]], with which he is unfamiliar. Eventually he succeeds, but all his previous (bungled) attempts also animate, and HilarityEnsues as the small crowd of defective Negi-copies run around amongst his students, just as they decide to make him the object of a kissing competition. Later, in the manga storyline, Negi experiences the first day of the Mahora [[FestivalEpisode festival]] multiple times via a TimeTravel device, and fails to entirely keep the secret of what he's doing from his students.

* In episode 23 of ''KeroroGunsou'', Keroro tries to use the (malfunctioning) Kero-Ball to fix one of his Gundam model kits, but accidentally activates the "Copy" function instead, which results in hundreds of Keroro clones infesting the Hinata house and the base. He plans to use these clones to help him take over the planet, but they're all as lazy and goofy as he is and would rather slack off. What's worse, he later learns that unless he gets rid of the clones somehow, the Kero-Ball will overload and all the Keroros (including the original) will vanish. * However, the ''Keroro'' example above is directly lifted from the main plot of another series, ''Shichinin no Nana''/''Anime/SevenOfSeven'' (one of the recurring characters in [=SoS=] is from ''Keroro'', so it goes both ways). The seven Nanas, however, are all considered separate people, unlike many examples on this page. All we can say for the girl's love interest is, you poor lucky bastard, getting seven girls who all want you (and likely aren't afraid of sharing)...

* [[AnIcePerson Mizore]] from ''RosarioToVampire'' can create "ice clones" of herself and her friends, which seem to be able to operate independently, though they don't last long. They're quite fragile as well, so she doesn't use them as backup combatants. * ''CodeBreaker'': [[spoiler: Heike]] can split himself into 100 clones as a result of his [[spoiler: light]] powers combining with his superior intelligence.

* In ''Manga/CastleTownDandelion'', Misaki has this as her RoyaltySuperpower. ''All For One'', allows her to make seven copies of herself. Each copy reflects a facet of Misaki's personality, and each is ''really really'' good at one subject, which annoys Misaki to no end, as Misaki herself is otherwise bland and doesn't excel in anything in particular.

** It sometimes helps a lot, but going up to ConservationOfNinjitsu levels means it's probably a distraction or temporary RedShirtArmy of himself. After the TimeSkip, he shifts toward uses small numbers of clones as decoys rather than a ZergRush of huge numbers of them. Clones to help him execute his big mojo attacks are very useful regularly.

* In ''NurseWitchKomugi'', Komugi magically cosplays as Ken the Eagle from ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman'' in a desperate bid to defeat her TransformingMecha-controlling NinjaMaid enemy (who was cosplaying as ''Tekkaman'')... and is soon joined by the rest of the Science Ninja Team, who are also cosplayed Komugis. Another Komugi later appears as TheProfessor. Her sidekick had no idea she could even do that, but Komugi plays it off like nothing at all. ** Treated with ''much'' more seriousness in ''Komugi'''s parent series, ''Anime/SoulTaker'', with Kyosuke's sister Ruina having created various "Flickers" of her soul to throw off her pursuers. They all look different and a good chunk of them don't even know they're Flickers to begin with.

* In one episode of ''Anime/AdventuresOfMiniGoddess'', Urd is babysitting some rats, and runs into a situation where she is asked to do three things at once. She however wants to play craps. She then makes two clones of herself, however all the clones wind up wanting to play craps as well. As you would expect, no actual work got done.
