- Id: Dewey - the adventurous one, most likely to jump into danger or try something for the heck of it.
- Dewey and Louie can switch between being Id and Ego depending on the situation. If the episode focuses on adventuring, the Freudian Trio is laid out as above. If the episode revolves around working, Dewey plays the Ego (being driven, competitive and motivated) when compared to Louie's lazy, pleasure-seeking Id.
The episode "Terror of the Terra-firmians" incorporates new character Lena into the mix:
Ed, Edd n Eddy

- Superego: Huey, who will not accept such claims unless he has solid proof - and also gets paralyzed when confronted with his fears of the unknown.
- Ego: Lena, who wants to believe in the existence of Terra-firmians along with Webby, but points out that the younger duckling doesn't help her case by utilizing fanfiction as "evidence". Louie takes up the role of the Ego when Lena goes off with Mrs. Beakley in the second and third acts of the episode, playing peacemaker between Webby and Huey.
The Fairly OddParents!
- Ego: Ed — Big, dumb, brutish, and easily swayed
- Superego: Edd — Neat freak, The Smart Guy
- Id: Eddy — Schemer, the leader, ruled by his desires
- This trope is later emphasized in "Brother, Can You Spare an Ed?" when Ed is tasked by Sarah to use her money to buy fudge. Edd wants him to use the money to buy fudge as promised while Eddy wants him to use them to buy jawbreakers for them, Edd and Eddy manifesting as Ed's shoulder angel and shoulder devil.
- Depending on the nature of the episode, they sometimes switch roles: Rules-obsessed Edd as still the limiting Superego, Cloud Cuckoolander Ed can act as the Id. Ironically, when this happens, it puts no-self-control Eddy in the Ego position by default as he tries to reign in the extreme behavior of the other two and keep them focused on their goal (jawbreakers or money).
