Humans are very social creatures, we enjoy being around each other a great deal. Our friends, our family, our lovers, our coworkers, are all sources of wholesome fun. If you're not into that sort of thing, well, [[LonersAreFreaks there's something wrong with you]]. But what happens when you go just a bit too far, become more and more of other people while less and less of yourself? Can you go so far that there's [[LossOfIdentity nothing left of you at all]]?

If this [[VoiceOfTheLegion sounds like you]], then your name may just be Legion.

I Am Legion is a Trope where some group or individual is made more sinister or strange by having them avoid referring to themselves in the singular. Through their speech and mannerisms they will make the viewer question the nature of the character. A lone character speaking as though they were chanting along as part of a chorus, or an assembly speaking in perfect unison, regardless of the situation.

Common quality of {{Hive Mind}}s, {{Mind Hive}}s, and cases of ManySpiritsInsideOfOne, but this isn't necessarily so. Not to be confused with MesACrowd and RoyalWe. Often speak with VoiceOfTheLegion. Has nothing to do with ''Literature/IAmLegend''. Creator/RogerZelazny's ''My Name Is Legion'' (about a secret agent with a multitude of false identities) is also not an example of this trope. Could be a LimitedSocialCircle that has JumpedOffTheSlipperySlope. IAmSpartacus uses this as a diversion.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Anime and Manga]]
* The Tachikoma in ''GhostInTheShell'' are not a group of individual sentient robots, but are instead all remote controlled by a single computer. In regular intervals, the individual [=AI=] programs are stopped and all of the data each unit has gathered during the day is compared and analyzed. When the [=AIs=] are reinitialized, each one has exactly the same set of stored memories. Somehow they still manage to spend most of their idle time on philosophical debates with each unit expressing different views and opinions, which by all logical understanding [[SentientAIWarningSigns should be impossible]].
* The demonic sword Saika from ''{{Durarara}}''. It leaves a cut in each of its victims' souls, where a "daughter sword" is born, thus making the victim a part of Saika as well as a servant and mouthpiece.
* Apocalymon from ''DigimonAdventure'' uses "we" to describe himself, being formed from the data of many Digimon.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Comic Books ]]

* In ''{{Spider-Man}}'', Eddie Brock's ComicBook/{{Venom}} usually refers to himself in the plural, as he is fused to an alien symbiote. Other Venoms generally don't, as they take a drug to suppress the symbiote's influence, but if they start losing control, they begin slipping into the plural.
** In ''SpiderGirl'', during the first appearance of the symbiote it outright ''possesses'' Spider-Man and is "I". Later, Normie Osborn wrapped in the symbiote, apparently civilizing it, goes by "we". So does May, although the symbiote - the same one that made half of Venom, which had just been transferred to her to heal a fatal wound - promptly jumps off her and dies in a HeroicSacrifice for her and her father. By that point it's not exactly evil, unlike Carnage later.
** In ''TheSpectacularSpiderMan'', Peter Parker notices himself thinking "we" instead of "I" after he starts using the symbiote.
*** Carnage is an exception among Symbiotes; it refers to itself almost exclusively as "I" because Cletus and it's psychotic personalities sync up so well.
* ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'' subverts this several times in its various incarnations of the villainous Dark Legion; despite the title, the only thing that makes them a "legion" is their great numbers and shared HollywoodCyborg themes, otherwise they're as far from a HiveMind as you can get (though the more recent incarnations' lust for [[YouWillBeAssimilated absorbing new members into their ranks through "Legionization"]] parallels [[Franchise/StarTrek another cyborg race listed on here...]])
* In ''FinalCrisis'', {{Darkseid}} essentially possesses half the human race and turns them into conduits for his will:
-->I. Am. The. New. God. All is one in Darkseid. This mighty body is my church. When I command your surrender, I speak with three billion voices. When I make a fist to crush your resistance. It is with three billion hands. When I stare into your eyes and shatter your dreams. And break your heart. It is with six billion eyes! Nothing like Darkseid has ever come among you: Nothing will again. I will take you to a hell without exit or end. And there I will murder your souls! And make you crawl and beg! And die! Die! Die for Darkseid!
* Oddly, enough, this Trope [[SubvertedTrope does not apply]] to ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' character Legion, despite the fact that he once quoted the passage in the Bible where the name of the Trope came from to explain his SplitPersonality.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Fan Fiction ]]

* Made fun of, and played straight in two different ''{{Naruto}}'' Fanfics. The first one (humor) has one of Naruto's Kage Bunshin say this to another shinobi, then another clone rolls his (its?) eyes and smacks it to get rid of it. The other one (horror) is the reason why it was forbidden. They eventually become flesh and blood, and psychically linked to the point where they lost track of the original.
** The first one is [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2731239/1/Team_8 Team 8]] by [=S'TarKan=].
** The second is [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3555534/1/The_Darkness_in_Kage_Bunshin The Darkness in Kage Bunshin]].
* Done in the Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion fanfic Fanfic/NobodyDies, where a group of enthralled people speak in unison to punctuate the words of their leader. A direct ShoutOut to the trope picture above, from FinalCrisis. "I am Legion, I am numerous. When I strike down your army, it is with SIX BILLION FISTS! When I stare my hatred into the depths of your soul, it is with SIX BILLION EYES!"
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]

* In ''Film/BatmanForever'', Two-Face [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6dDO7YJwrQ refers to himself using "we"]] due to his SplitPersonality.
* In the ''Film/GhostRider'' movie, after [[spoiler:absorbing the thousand souls from the contract]], Blackheart quotes the phrase from the Bible. Unfortunately, he does this in probably the most [[{{Narm}} Narmtacular]] way ''possible''.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PuK1kyCzhQI My naaame is leee-gion. For weee are maaa-ny.]]"
* In ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean,'' veterans of the Flying Dutchman's crew express a particularly strong "part of the crew, part of the ship" thought, to the point where they are eventually fused into the ship.
* ''{{Spawn}}'' finds out he actually has 4000 (?) souls. He quotes the same phrase from the Bible.
* Nestor from ''Film/BattleBeyondTheStars'' are a hive mind species.
* Played with in the RiffTrax for ''ParanormalActivity'', in the scene where Katie changes her mind about leaving, and Mike riffs, "For we are Legion, and we are very comfy here."

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]

* ''[[Literature/NineteenEightyFour The ideal set up by the Party was something huge, terrible, and glittering—a world of steel and concrete, of monstrous machines and terrifying weapons—a nation of warriors and fanatics, marching forward in perfect unity, all thinking the same thoughts and shouting the same slogans, perpetually working, fighting, triumphing, persecuting; three hundred million people, all with the same face.]]''
* OlderThanFeudalism: The trope takes its title from the [[Literature/TheFourGospels Book of Mark]], where a man possessed by many demons was asked his name by Jesus and replied, "My name is Legion for we are many." Another [[Literature/TheBible Biblical]] example: Daniel 10:6 also reports the eponymous prophet's vision of a glowing man whose [[VoiceOfTheLegion voice was "like the sound of a multitude."]]
* At one point in the Creator/StephenKing miniseries ''{{Storm of the Century}}'' it was realized that MagnificentBastard antagonist Linoge's name was an [[SignificantAnagram anagram]] of Legion, complete with the character who realized this quoting the relevant Bible passage. Given what we see of Linoge, that he is either a demon or some sort of avatar for them is quite likely.
** In ''Literature/TheStand'', it is revealed by Tom Cullen in a trance that Randal Flagg is neither truly human nor an individual, in fact Tom uses the line: "He's always outside. He came out of time. He doesn't know himself. He has the name of a thousand demons. Jesus knocked him into a herd of pigs once. His name is Legion. He's afraid of us. We're inside."
** Whether Flagg and Linoge are one and the same is a major source of EpilepticTrees. Entirely possible, given that Flagg is a recurring character in the works of Stephen King. [[TheDragon Walter O'Dim]], the Man in Black, the Walking Dude from ''Franchise/TheDarkTower'' series and Flagg are one and the same. Since Walter can travel through the multiverse, it's quite likely that he is every incarnation of Flagg/Legion to appear in all of Stephen King's stories.
* The Morah, and its army, the Zars, from William Nicholson's ''Literature/WindOnFire'' trilogy.
* The Auditors from Creator/TerryPratchett's ''Literature/{{Discworld}}''. Whenever one uses a personal pronoun in the singular it actually pops out of existence, as if it either extinguishes itself in horror or is extinguished by the others on the grounds that to be an individual is to be alive, and all mortal lives are impossibly short next to the lifespan of the universe.
** Later in the books, they try mortality out and the first one gives herself a MeaningfulName, because they don't see the point of names that aren't descriptive -- [[spoiler:Lady Myria [=Le Jean=]]].
*** (Since that's a little difficult, here's some help - [[spoiler: Myria, from "myriad", meaning "innumerable", and Le Jean pronounced in the proper French manner sounds a lot like "legion"]].)
** Also the Hiver from ''A Hat Full of Sky''. Whilst it obviously qualifies as a HiveMind, there is a part of it which could be referred to as 'the original' that is changed every time a new mind is added to the mix.
* Mucho Maas from ''TheCryingOfLot49''
* Played with in ''JohnDiesAtTheEnd'' where a person possessed by a [[TheSwarm swarm]] refers to himself as Shitload, "because there is a shitload of us in there".
* Ygramul the Many, a giant spider [[TheWormThatWalks consisting of millions of small hornets]], from ''Literature/TheNeverendingStory''.
* In the MatthewSwift books, the [[spoiler:blue electric angels]] think of themselves in the plural, despite being essentially a single entity. Since [[spoiler:they're merged with the protagonist at the beginning of the first book]], the books' narrative pronoun is "we" about half the time.
* In Jeff Lindsey's ''Literature/{{Dexter}}'' book series, whenever Dexter lets the Dark Passenger "take the wheel" he has a tendency to refer to himself as we and us when he speaks to his victims- referring to him (Dexter) and the separate entity that is the Dark Passenger.
* An interesting use in ''StarTrekVanguard'' combines this trope with MesACrowd. The Shedai ''Serrataal'' ruling class often speak as though they're a collective (despite being in reality an ideologically diverse bunch) and can also take on multiple forms at once, controlling several bodies simultaneously. The Apostate, when describing the Shedai caste system, explains "I am ''Serrataal'', I am legion", thereby making use of the IAmLegion trope while also using the same words to point to the MesACrowd nature of his powers.
* In ''LambTheGospelAccordingToBiff'', the TropeNamer scene is retold. It is basically the same, though it seems the Bible opted to... tone done the original line.
--> '''Legion: '''My name is Legion, for there are a shit-ton of us in here.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]

* In the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' episode "Primeval", while Buffy prepares to face [[FrankensteinsMonster Adam]], the Scooby gang performs a power-joining spell that gives Buffy the combined power of all the past and future slayers, and speak with the combined voices of herself and those casting the spell.
--> ''"You could never hope to grasp the source of our power."'' *rips out Adam's uranium core* ''"But yours is right here."''
* In the finale of ''Series/{{Angel}}'', Hamilton says to Angel that he would never defeat Wolfram & Hart because "[they] are Legion. [[AsLongAsThereIsEvil They are forever.]]"
* ''Series/DoctorWho:''
** The Cybermen on occasion, particularly in the new series. "You will become identical. You will become like us."
** The Ood pull a similar trick in "The Impossible Planet"/"The Satan Pit" once they're possessed by [[{{Satan}} The Beast]]. "He is awake." "AND YOU WILL WORSHIP HIM."
** In "The End of Time" The Master transforms everyone on Earth into a clone of himself, with a single shared consciousness.
* In ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'', we have the Trickster, especially in ''The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith''.
* Appropriately enough, the ''Series/RedDwarf'' episode "Legion" (which had the working title "Call Me Legion") featured a being which only existed as a combination of nearby conscious minds. He was referred to as a "gestalt entity"; this term was also frequently used to describe the "Grant Naylor" persona under which the programme's co-creators Rob Grant and Doug Naylor were often presented.
* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'': "WE ARE THE BORG. YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE."
* One episode of ''Series/{{House}}'', In which a game producer posts his symptoms online to find a diagnosis receives this as a suggestion. Foreman and Thirteen shoot it down as they go through several other suggestions:
--> Foreman - You are possessed by the biblical demon "Legion."
--> Thirteen - Nope, no jumping off a cliff in a herd of pigs.
--> Foreman - Otherwise, it did fit.
* ''TheMentalist'': A common theory about the "He Is Man" message at the end of "Red John's Friends" is that it was supposed to read, "He Is Many." Given that Red John is said to have an absurdly high number of "followers..."

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]

* Music/BlackSabbath's "I" has the lyrics "I am Wicked / I am Legion / Strength in numbers a lie / The number is one".
* {{Hammerfall}}'s song "Legion", which describes the Biblical demon.
* Music/ENomine's "Der Fürst Der Finsternis", actually about {{Satan}}, contains the line "My name is legion".
* Arch Enemy's song "Nemesis" has the line 'We are Legion/Voice of Anarchy'. Angela Gossow's singing style is the perfect compliment to the lyrics.
* Swedish BlackMetal Band Marduk has a song called "Legion" with the line "My name is legion, for we are many in here".

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Warhammer 40000's]] Thousand Sons Traitor Legion have a rule representing their status as possessed suits of armour entitled "We Are Legion."

* Lampshaded in ''{{Bionicle}}'' after Brutaka gets possessed by Antidermis:
-->'''Axonn''': Just so you know... Brutaka's his own "we" now. Long Story.
[[/folder]]


[[folder: Video Games ]]

* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'': What's worse than getting into a battle with [[ImplausibleFencingPowers Ra's Al Ghul?]] How about a battle against around 20+ Ra's Al Ghul sand clones who pounce on you while shouting '''WE ARE LEGION'''?
* The Overlord Doom Blade from ''VideoGame/AdventureQuestWorlds'' houses several darkness elementals
* Starting with ''Symphony of the Night,'' Legion itself is a popular RecurringBoss in the ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' series. It takes the form of a giant orb with several acid-spewing tentacles sticking out, but is always initially covered in a giant layer of tortured souls/corpses, which it drops to attack you. It also doubles as the first stage of a BonusBoss in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaCurseOfDarkness''.
** In ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight Symphony of the Night]]'', Legion was called "Granfalloon", a reference to the Bokononism term in the novel ''Cat's Cradle'' for a group of people who think they're a part of an important association with a meaningful purpose, but aren't.
** ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaHarmonyOfDissonance Harmony Of Dissonance]]'' introduced two variations: the first one was dubbed "Legion (Saint)", that fits the description above. The second one was called "Legion (Corpse)", which had the shell of bodies replaced by an indestructible armor composed mostly of human skulls and the weak spot being a ''seemingly crucified rotten corpse''.
* Dormin from ''VideoGame/ShadowOfTheColossus'' refers to Theirself as "we." Granted, Dormin also has two voices speaking at once, and was split into ''sixteen'' different collosi/shadow beings.
* The OriginalGeneration from Franchise/{{Gundam}} {{Crossover}} TurnBasedStrategy title, ''SD Gundam G Generation DS'' are Legion. The protagonist is their SuperPrototype who is free from the HiveMind and joins other heroes against the Legion.
* The ''Franchise/MassEffect'' series has a variation in that every individual of the [[spoiler:Reaper species]] is its own numberless legion, although the few we interact with still refer to themselves in the singular. The sequel reveals that [[spoiler: they reproduce by liquefying millions of individual organics and pumping their genetic paste into a shell. Legion describes a Reaper as "One ship, one will, many minds."]]
** In the sequel, a geth ends up rescuing Shepard and is then rescued by him/her in return and brought back to the Normandy. Shepard asks what it should be called, and it simply replies "Geth", claiming it is not an individual and that there are currently "1,183 programs active within this platform". EDI recites the Bible passage and names it Legion, which it "acknowledges as an appropriate metaphor".
*** The ''entire geth race'' is this trope; the geth are made up of two components: "platforms," the physical bodies you see in the game, and "runtimes," the actual artificial intelligence programs. To function, runtimes must inhabit platforms, usually requiring at least a few hundred runtimes per platform to run the platform's systems. Since geth platforms are all connected via FTL communication, geth runtimes will freely swap between platforms. Legion is partly unique in that it is made up of over a ''thousand'' runtimes inhabiting a single platform, over eleven times more than is normal for geth platforms.
** Legion once describes the geth as a "shattered mind". The geth's ultimate goal is to build a Dyson sphere so that all runtimes can share at once.
** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', depending on the choice you make, [[spoiler:the geth runtimes can achieve true sentience and individuality]].
* ''MortalKombat'''s Ermac, being a HiveMind of numerous souls. He even uses the "We are many" mantra in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9''.
* The antagonist in the video game rendition of ''ShadowMan'' was named (and may have been) Legion, and he and his group of serial killers (called "The Five") used the bible quote as a mantra. His goal was to trick the protagonist into collecting a series of demonic souls for him so he could unleash them to bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, natch.
** Both the game and instructions seem to imply heavily that this is ''the'' Legion from the Bible, but never openly state it to be the case.
* In ''SystemShock 2'' - "Glory to The Many".
* In ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}}'', Alex Mercer is really [[spoiler: TheVirus that manifested itself into the person known as "Alex Mercer" just after the death of the original Alex Mercer. Throughout the game Alex Mercer consumes various people and gains their memories and skills, but this has also resulted in him having to relive those peoples' memory of their deaths over and over.]]
** [[spoiler: Alex/Blacklight even says outright that the people he has killed are part of him and ''are'' him, implying that the individuals he has consumed are bleeding into his sense of self. This explains why he slowly (very slowly) starts to grow something akin to a conscience; the original Mercer was a complete sociopath, but as the game goes on, he consumes people who aren't, giving him more of a sense of right and wrong.]]
*** [[BigScrewedUpFamily One Big Screwed Up Family]]
* Nero Chaos in ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}''. Technically, he does refer to himself as I, but also admits that the remaining part of him that was once a human is now very small. Say, about 1/666? The other 665 parts are animals and mythical beasts. Still mostly acts human presumably because the human part is what holds it together plus the intelligence factor. But it's implied that this won't always be so and that he is becoming something else. Or was, until Shiki killed him.
* In ''[[VideoGame/NintendoWars Battalion Wars]]'', [[spoiler:Countess Ingrid is eventually possessed by the Iron Legion - an army of ancient soldiers she revived - and starts spouting lines which usually contain the phrase, "We are Legion!"]]
* In both ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII'' and ''DissidiaFinalFantasy'' the Cloud of Darkness refers to "herself" in the plural. The reason for this could either because "she" is actually a personification of the chaotic forces that herald the coming of the Void, or because "she" is including her [[CognizantLimbs attack]] [[CombatTentacles tentacles]] when talking about "herself".
** It should be noted this was added to the English version. In the Japanese version, she uses 'Washi,' a pronoun for old men.
* The Prometheus robots in ''VideoGame/TimeSplitters: Future Perfect'' say this at random (or more specifically, we ''are'' legion).
* The unexpectedly sinister ''AnimalCrossing: City Folk'' features this as one of the random comments while playing hide and seek.
* The quote gets used in ''[[LegacyOfKain Soul Reaver]]''.
-->'''Kain''': As long as one of us stands, we are legion.
* The main character in ''[[CommandAndConquer Kane's Wrath]]'' is named LEGION[[note]] Logarithmically Engineered Governing Intelligence Of Nod[[/note]].
** CABAL (Computer Assisted Biologically Augmented Lifeform) was created by linking multiple {{Wetware CPU}}s together into what is essentially an AI with split personality; LEGION is based on CABAL but is much more advanced and contains CABAL's original coding. [[DarkMessiah Kane]] loves symbolism.
* When two characters merge their minds in ''VideoGame/DeusEx'' they use the words "I... I... We... are... one."
* The playable character Legion in ''{{MARDEK}} RPG 3'' is a robot built by Meraeador and bound to a soul...except that Meraeador stuttered the magic words, and so Legion has ''four'' souls. Three of them are crazy, and one of the three can't even speak coherently.
* In ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'', Azmodan plans to become the Prime Evil, the embodiment of all seven Great Evils in one being, and [[spoiler:Diablo, after accomplishing exactly that courtesy of Adria's betrayal]], actually says this before the final battle.
* The Masters of the Bazaar in ''VideoGame/FallenLondon'' frequently talk like this. Their precise nature is unknown, so it's not clear whether they're attempting the RoyalWe, or referring to themselves ''and'' the Bazaar, or whether each individual Master is in fact some kind of colony, somehow. It's fairly clear they aren't all a collective mind, however, since they've been known to work at cross purposes, and it's possible they're just too alien to describe properly, or to properly describe themselves.

[[folder: Web Comics ]]
* [[GeniusDitz Scarlet]] from ''Webcomic/SequentialArt'' and her sisters, while it's [[InnocentFanserviceGirl easy to forget]], are cyborgs [[http://www.collectedcurios.com/sequentialart.php?s=493 forming]] a HiveMind at will, which makes them [[http://www.collectedcurios.com/sequentialart.php?s=494 talk in unison]]. When the protagonists getting [[http://www.collectedcurios.com/sequentialart.php?s=561 played]] a [[BlandNameProduct Realm of Lorecraft]] board game, Kat suggests Scarlet team up with her "sisters". The following dialog occurs:
-->'''Squirrel girls:''' Bio-computing effectiveness at 100%... ''(as their knight avatar)'' we are legion!
-->'''Art:''' That's... kinda creepy.
* Kano from ''Webcomic/{{Kagerou}}'' sometimes refers to himself in the plural. He's the protagonist with a bad case of multiple personality disorder. [[MindScrew Weird comic.]]
* Tina from ''WapsiSquare'' is actually a swarm of demons inhabiting the body of a girl who was fatally injured in a car accident.
* [[LivingDollCollector Kharla'ggen]] of ''{{Drowtales}}'' always calls herself "we", and not in the RoyalWe sense despite being a noble, and her adopted sister Kiel believes that she has multiple people in her head due to her aura absorbing powers. Kiel thinks this also means that [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?order=chapters&id=1236 Kharla's never really felt alone]].

[[folder: Web Original ]]

* In the ''{{Narbonic}}'' forums, in the Mad Scientist Wars this happens in an alternate future, which is averted thankfully. It was executed particularly creepily by using the scene as a major BreakTheCutie.
* In ''MarbleHornets'', it's heavily hinted that[[spoiler: totheark is not just one person, but many users working on the same account]].
* In the ''DragonBallZAbridged'' special ''Cooler 2: The Return of Cooler's Revenge - The Reckoning'', when the main villain arrives with his full [[RobotMaster Meta-]][[HiveMind Cooler]] [[OhCrap army]], all of which he controls directly. He even attempts to quote the TropeNamer. ''Attempts'' being key here.

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* The Delightful Children from Down the Lane in ''KidsNextDoor.'' [[spoiler: (Though this is due to a brainwashing device that [[UpToEleven overloaded]].)]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'':
** In the Avatar State, an Avatar is channeling the combined skill of every Avatar that came before him/her.
** Also Joo Dee. Aang and his friends started to get suspicious when Joo Dee (their guide and caretaker) disappeared and a clearly different woman took her place. In a later episode, we see a whole ''roomful'' of women being {{brainwashed}} into assuming the name and identity of "Joo Dee". Appropriately, according to [[http://avatar.wikia.com/wiki/Avatar_Wiki Avatar Wiki]], "Joo Dee" is the Chinese equivalent of "Jane Doe".
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'': In the episode "Up a Tree" it has an obvious ShoutOut to ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'', creatures that live in a tree repeatedly say this: "In the tree, part of the tree. In the tree, part of the tree."

* TruthInTelevision: 4chan's [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anonymous_%28group%29 Anonymous]] is a gigantic group of [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin anonymous]] people, connected only by their anonymous identity, that, when angered, can [[InternetBackdraft seriously screw up a person's reputation. Or sanity. Most likely both.]] (''[[MemeticMutation We are Anonymous. We are Legion.]] We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us.'')
* The Situationalist International, Animal Liberation Front and The Invisible Party (Swedish Anarchist group) have used legion-like rhethoric.
* The royal "[[RoyalWe We]]", the king being assumed to be speaking on behalf of the whole kingdom. Referred to by Mark Twain:
-->Only [[BreadEggsMilkSquick kings, presidents, editors, and people with tapeworms]] have the right to use the editorial 'we'.
* The fans of the Dutch football team Feyenoord are referred to as "The Legion". They even use is in songs (We are the Legion, and we will become champion). It scans a lot better in the original Dutch, mind you.
* Although trees can't talk in the typical way, [[SelfDuplication clonal Aspen colonies]] that share a [[HiveMind common root system]] are the living embodiment of this trope. The most famous example, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pando_%28tree%29 Pando]], is composed of 43,000 standing trees and is over [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld 80,000 years old]].
