** If you choose to exercise caution when searching the kitchen during Infancy, the narrator mentions that you could have been killed by some of the chemicals stored in the pantry, had you chosen not to be cautious. However, the worst possible outcome of this scenario is having your Physical sphere dropped to 1%.
** {{Subverted}} during the kidnapper scene in Childhood, where death is a high possibility unless the most sensible set of responses is chosen.
*** Played more straight in the female version; if the kidnapper captures you, he will be pulled over by the police for having a defective headlight as he is about to reach the highway, saving your life in the process.
** In the male version, there is one childhood experience where your friends are going out to climb a tall rock together. Your parents do not allow you to go for fear of your safety, and rightly so; you later find out one of your friends fell from the rock and died from the resulting injuries. However, if you decide to go against your parents' wishes, there is a chance you will be the one to fall off of the rock; you sustain the same injuries, but survive the ordeal... with a Physical sphere of 1%.



* [[ThatOneLevel That One Episode]]: The episode with the [[serial killer]] during the Childhood phase has gained near memetic status due to how very easy it is to die during it, especially relative to how early in the game it appears.

Added DiffLines:

* FreakyFashionMildMind: One of the scenarios involves hiring a babysitter. The one who shows up is dressed in [[TheEighties 80's punk fashion]] with plenty of leather, a six-inch-high lime green mohawk, and enough piercings to overload metal detectors. She's also carrying some heavy-duty child psychology textbooks and college homework. [[spoiler: Turns out to be Best Babysitter Ever if you can look past the odd fashion sense.]]

* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: One of the scenarios involves your friends asking whether you've seen a show you weren't able to watch. You can then bluff them either on how you've seen the show or the reason why you didn't, but if your stats don't meet up it leads to this.

''Alter Ego'' is a part roleplaying game part life simulator released for UsefulNotes/AppleII, UsefulNotes/{{Commodore 64}}, UsefulNotes/{{MS-DOS}} and UsefulNotes/MacOS and created by {{Activision}} in 1986. It was first released with a male version and later re-released with a female version. The game is all about [[AnAdventurerIsYou you]] and how you live your life, making decisions that will make or break you as you grow up. The game begins with a personality test featuring a series of true and false questions to make up your personality. Afterwards, you will constantly make decisions of how you feel or act to scenarios, starting from your birth and continuing off through your Infancy, Childhood, Adolescence, Young Adulthood, Adulthood, Middle Age and Old Age chapters of your life. The goal is to live your life as long and as fulfilling as possible, although [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential it certainly doesn't stop you from trying to off yourself as early and painfully as possible.]]

Not to be confused with [[BeneathTheMask tropes]] [[ADarkerMe pertaining to]] [[EvilTwin an alter ego]], nor with a different game of the same name released for the PC and {{Wii}}.
