The main characters of Richard Dragon: Kung Fu Fighter had this dynamic.
* Superego: Richard Dragon-- Calm, controlled, and devoted to the spiritual side of martial arts.
* Id: ComicBook/LadyShiva-- Impulsive, violent, and driven solely by addiction to danger and violence.
* Ego: [[ComicBook/SuicideSquad Ben Turner]]-- Neither driven by his base desires like Shiva, nor entirely zen like Dragon. Ben acts as a humanizing factor for both of them, especially Dragon.


* Ego: White boxed internal monolog -- Depending on source this is either another part of Deadpool or a supervillain called madcap who got fused with him, it's a long story but either way these usually serve the same functions. Generally the more heroic or reasonable half of Deadpool depending on situation that advocates for things like saving his friends or allies despite danger, not murdering innocent children, and avoiding collateral damage so he gets paid more by whoever is currently employing him. Ultimately selfserving but more reasonable and logical.
* Superego: Deadpool speaking aloud -- Despite also being his speaking voice anything he states aloud that isn't directed specifically at another character or is said as a form of bragging is Deadpool making deals between the other two voices in his head. While Yellow may want to murder the children making fun of him and White will urge him not to Deadpool's speaking voice is usually around to make a compromise between the two, following the previous example that would be not murdering the children but breaking their arms to teach them a lesson.

* Ego: Rodimus -- reckless and emotional but willing to listen to reason. In season 2, [[spoiler: after Drift leaves the ship]], he switches to the Id and Megatron takes over as the Ego.
