    characters with split personalities

    What do you guys think of characters with split personalities? Do you find the character overall more interesting or do you find it used for convenience most of the time, since the "hidden one" usually comes out when the "public one" is in danger/losing?

    First one that came to mind was a certain genocidal psycho from a certain game series, and she was great

    It really depends on the character in question, some can be written well and some can be written horribly.

    Does Guts count as a split personality?

    I don't think so, Hellhound is a different being if I remember it correctly.

    Guts doesn't count, I tend to put him with stuff like Naruto and Kurama.

    They're often rather bad. Split personalities are generally an excuse to have an otherwise ordinary character have their repressed hidden side act edgy or badass.

    There are some cases where they're done well though:

    Akashi's alright but on the mediocre side.

    Black Hanekawa and Genocider Syo are also fine.

    Now the best cases I know are coincidentally, not run of the mill cases but artificial : Shiki (KnK), Grimmer (Monster) and Echo (PH).
