Freudian Trio: Fan Fic
  • Swing123 and garfieldodie's Calvinverse has something akin to this in a sextet:
    • Calvin and Socrates are the Ids, the latter more so.
    • Hobbes and the MTM are the Egos.
    • Andy and Sherman are the Superegos, the latter more so (again).
  • Mello (the Id), Matt (the Ego), and Near (the Superego) from Constant Temptation.
  • Takato, Ruki and Chaos all form one of these in the Tamers Forever Series.
    • The Id: Chaos, the living embodiment of disorder and thus the most impulsive of the trio.
    • Super Ego: Ruki, a sentient A.I and thus the most intellectual of the three.
    • The Ego: Takato, the balance between the two.
  • There are two sets in Akatsuki Kitten Phoenix Corporation Overhaul, working under the author:
    • The three main girls: Goldstone (the Superego), Diamond (the Id), and Opal (the Ego).
    • If we go with the three highest rankings, however: Goldstone (the superego), Opal (the Id), and Chimera (the Superego). The author implies that Opal and Chimera used to be reversed, however.
  • There are a lot of freudian trios in Super Smash Brothers Guardians Arise, considering that a lot of chapters introduce three characters at the same time. Some examples being:
  • In Horseshoes and Hand Grenades and its subsequent sidestories have characters in different groups at the same time. This includes:
    • Rumi (the Id), Jun (Superego) and Mari (Ego)
    • Ibuki (the Id), Taira (Superego) and Abe (Ego)
    • Yuki (The Id), Miu (Superego) and Tomoko (Ego)
    • Yuki (the Id), Erin (Superego) and Tomoko (Ego)
    • Jiro (The Id), Gentaro (Superego) and Kengo (Ego)
  • Subverted in First Try Series with Team 7. Kakashi tried to see them as this, thinking they mirrored his own team but is dead wrong. Naruto hates both his teammates, Sasuke is anti-social and abrasive and Sakura sides with Sasuke no matter the situation. So basically Sasuke is The Spock but there is no "Mccoy" or "Kirk" to keep him in check.
    • In Legacy Of The Rasengan:, Naruto tends to alternate between The Kirk, The Mccoy and The Spock which tends to throw the team dynamic off what with Sakura being The Mccoy and Sasuke being The Spock. Makes it very complicated since Naruto has to, at times, play a one-man Freudian Trio to get the team to work on any level.
  • In Lauralot's Shadow Selves fic, Scarecrow and Jonathan are written as a "functional" version of dissociative identity disorder. Chapter 61 reveals that Jonathan works as the superego of their team while Scarecrow acts as the id - and Scarecrow "had no idea where their ego was". In a more traditional sense, the author mentions that they recorded their psych notes as Superego: Batman, Joker: Id, and Ego: Bruce Wayne.
  • Empath: The Luckiest Smurf: The Power Trio of the three Bad Ass Smurfs: Tuffy (the Id), Duncan McSmurf (the Superego), and Hefty (the Ego).
  • In Necessary To Win, there is one such trio among three students of the Nishizumi school. Kikuyo is The McCoy, a compassionate and idealistic maid for the head instructor, who is torn between her loyalty to her mistress, and her desire for the well-being of her mistress' daughter, to whom she is a mother figure. Ami Chouno, a JGSDF instructor who helped train Oarai's tankery team, is The Kirk, who shares many of Kikuyo's desires and conflicts, but also reminds her of practical considerations. Takako Kubo, who, in this fic, is Black Forest's coach, is The Spock, believing that harsh methods of discipline are entirely justified and necessary in order to make Black Forest a winning team. Interestingly enough, The Spock in this case gets along with The McCoy better than The Kirk, with whom she had a falling out over her methods of discipline.
  • In Sight, Ichigo, Zangetsu and Hakuran: Ichigo is the Ego, the conscious self, acts as the mediator between Hakuran and Zangetsu and reconcilates Zangetsu's suggestions with Hakuran's desires. Zangetsu is the Superego acts as Ichigo's conscience and is better at strategy and recognizing social conventions, such as knowing when to tell Ichigo how to lie through omission. Hakuran as Ichigo's Inner Hollow is the Id, the base desire. Hakuran is always itching for a fight, does not censor himself in his language and has a childish curosity.
