Ace Attorney

Ego

Phoenix Wright Obsessed with helping others to the point of basing his whole education and career around the possibility to slap some sense into a friend he knew for barely 8 months in grade school, but also a great Deadpan Snarker inside and professional Butt Monkey. Often shown to be afraid of accidentally making a "too" wrong choice during one of his Indy Ploys.

Superego

Miles

Edgeworth

A rather serious person and great logical thinker -- "bookworm" in Larry's words -- who, both, prior to his Face Heel Turn and after his Heel Face Turn 15 years later is driven by the desire to uncover the truth and serve justice, saving the innocent and punishing the guilty. Also prone to hold a World of Cardboard Speech now or then.

Shin Megami Tensei has a classic case of this in the beginning, though eventually things get worse and the player, as the Ego, is forced to either side with one of the remaining members of the trio against the other, or reject them both. Anyway, while the trio's still together, it goes...

The Ultima series - Though the Avatar and Companions can be shuffled a number of ways, the trio that stands out are The Avatar, Iolo, and Shamino. The majority of the games begin with the three of them together, and in all games Iolo and Shamino receive more dialog and plot significance.

  • Iolo - Bard and the model of Compassion. Tends to instinct and occasional crankiness, artistic temperament, and the only character with a lifelong love through the series. (Id)
  • Shamino - Ranger and the model of Spirituality. Though he can be a man of action, tends toward meditation, communion with nature and the higher order of human consciousness. (Superego)
  • Avatar - The Avatar is the role model of all the Virtues, and seeks to apply them in practical example for problem-solving. (Ego)

Valkyrie Profile - The conflicting natures of the three valkyries is not the focus, but it is a central part of their development, especially in the second game. They are even described as separate components of one greater being.

  • Hrist - Harsh, ditiful, gets the job done. (Superego. Labeled by Freya as the secondary ego.)
  • Lenneth - Balanced (Ego. Labeled by Freya as the primary ego.)
  • Silmeria - Emotional, rebelious (Id)

  • The Alliance
    • Varian Wrynn: Hotheaded human king with a vendetta against the Horde, orcs in particular. Slow to use reason or negotiation, but not without, and often violent. Having two minds in one body, sometimes approaches situations with unpredictable sense of honor. Id, some traces of Superego but MOSTLY Id.
    • Prophet Velen: Quiet, methodical leader gifted with prescience and wisdom, carefully plotting the best course for his people and the rest of the world, no matter what happens. Superego

  • Northrend Forces
    • Tirion Fordring (Argent Crusade): Trusts in the light and the forces of righteousness with unshakable faith, refusing to employ questionable means on account of the moral ambiguity. Perhaps the single greatest paladin alive. Id
    • Darion Morgraine (Knights of the Ebon Blade): Ruthlessly pragmatic fallen hero, liberated from the Lich King's control but still employs all the dark and forbidden knowledge and techniques he learned as a death knight. Does not recognize or value such follies as honor, righteousness, or valor. Only results count. Superego
    • Alexstrasza (Wyrmrest Accord): Operates by unknowable rules, wielding an Omniscient Morality License, but also deeply compassionate, and willing to work even with races that have done horrific wrongs to dragonkind.

  • Night elf leaders, Frozen throne
    • Maiev: Becomes obsessed with tracking down Illidan. Id

Solatorobo plays with this one two ways with the heros:
