Alien Nine has the Alien Party:

Id

Kasumi

Tomine

Joined because she likes catching/fighting aliens; also contrasts with Yuri in that she is a prodigy and a xenophile.

Ego

Kumi

Kawamura

Choose to be an Alien Fighter rather than be saddled with the higher pressure and responsiblity of Class President (little did she know...). Capable and dependable one who has no real issues with aliens--the middleman.

Superego

Yuri

Otani

Railroaded by her classmates since no one else wanted to be stuck wearing the Ugly Cute alien; the opposite of Kasumi in that she is a crybaby moeblob who despises all things alien.

Axis Powers Hetalia has the Axis Forces:

Id

Feliciano/Italy Child-like, naive, ditzy

Ego

Kiku/Japan in the middle

Superego

Ludwig/Germany Rational, workaholic, duty-bound

Baccano! has a set in the Gandor brothers:

Id

Berga

Gandor

The middle brother. Huge, emotional, and intimidating; not very bright.

Ego

Luck

Gandor

The youngest. The calm, collected "brains" of the group. Usually at the head in most of their dealings and serves as the mediator.

Superego

Keith

Gandor

Oldest brother. The Quiet One and flat-out voiceless in the anime; traditional conservative thinking and adherent to ethics and tradition

Bleach features the rare instance where the power trio are also the villains:

Id

Gin Constantly grinning, utterly without empathy, and more than happy to start trouble; reputation for recklessness and scheming even before Soul Society found out he was Aizen's minion

Ego

Aizen The serene, soft-spoken yet supremely arrogant leader. The other two are completely loyal to him, so he has no trouble keeping them in line.

Superego

Tousen Calm and stoic, Tousen is a Knight Templar who believes following Aizen is the least violent way to bring order to the world. He prioritizes his personal code above all else, even if it means harming former friends.
  • Technically any of the Vizards can be considered this if the Interactions within Ichigo's mental world are/were the same for them. With the main Identity being the ego, the hollow being the Id and the Zanpakuto being the superego.
  • The Freudian Trio/Platonic Tripartite Soul also applies to the first three members of the Five-Man Band and love triangle:

Id

Orihime

(Appetitive)

acts on her gut feelings and emotions, her unusual tastes in food are a running joke, and is the damsel in distress in Hueco Mundo where the inhabitants are driven to eat each other

Ego

Ichigo

(Spirited

protagonist)

a tripartite soul himself with Ichigo proper, Zangetsu and Hollow Ichigo -- lampshaded by the in-story "king and his horse" analogy which is similar to the charioteer analogy in Plato's Republic.

Superego

Rukia

(Rational)

calm, contemplative, self-possessed, driven by duty, conscientious to the point of being suicidal over something that wasn't her fault, and is the damsel in distress in the rules-obsessed Soul Society
  • Spills over hilariously into Ship-to-Ship Combat: The most obnoxious Ichiruki shippers bring out a moralistic laundry list of why Rukia is objectively more deserving than Orihime and label Ichihime shippers as "irrational," while the most obnoxious Ichihime shippers say something along the lines of "LOL boobs" as the reason why Ichigo should end up with Orihime.
  • The rest of the Five Man Band and Sixth Ranger:

Id

Ego

Superego

the Appetitive

Chad

the Spirited

Renji

the Rational

Ishida

    • The two fighting formations toward the end of Hueco Mundo work this way with Rukia and Ishida trading places.
  • Also, Ichigo's closest three normal human friends:

Id

Keigo the Appetitive, goofy

Ego

Tatsuki the Spirited, hot-blooded

Superego

Mizuiro the Rational, straight man

Code Geass has many variants.

  • The Black Knights Trio

Id

Kallen Passionate freedom fighter and crusader against tyranny

Ego

C.C. Acts cynical and cold, but really just wants to be loved

Superego

Lelouch The Chessmaster, hyper-pragmatic, living by the Batman Gambit (superego)
  • The main three leads:

Id

Ego

Superego

C.C. Lelouch Suzaku

Cowboy Bebop has this, though it can get blurry:

Id

Ego

Superego

Spike Julia Vicious

The three pilots of Dai-Guard:

Id

Akagi Hot-Blooded Ascended Fanboy whose constant use of the Indy Ploy consistently infuriates his teammates

Ego

Ibuki closer to Earth than Akagi, but is not always perfectly calm (manually activating Dai-Guard's Net Cannon by climbing out on the mecha's arm being one example)

Superego

Aoyama (at least at first) just doing his job and even refers to himself as the Only Sane Man

Darker Than Black has a few of these.

Id

Huang hot-tempered Noble Bigot with a Badge, prone to Bullying a Dragon

Ego

Mao Keeps the above and below from killing each other; quite a kind fellow, despite his claims of being unemotional and pragmatic.

Superego

Hei The Stoic who suppresses his emotions

Id

April a Bottle Fairy

Ego

November

11

Cunning and kind of a jerk but cares for his teammates and has a nice side

Superego

July An Emotionless Guy

Id

Genma a Depraved Bisexual

Ego

Yoko The Team Normal, she's a brilliant scientist but also very personable

Superego

Mina A stoic who rarely conveys any emotional response

Death Note

Id

Misa Amane Amoral pleasure yandere

Ego

Ryuk Finds the others to be "so interesting"

Superego

Light Yagami Zealous Knight Templar bent on creating "a perfect world"
  • The detectives:

Id

Mello Volatile, ambitious and passionate

Ego

L The (im)perfect balance between the two

Superego

Near Calm, cerebral and stoic
  • Both groups put together for the main three leads:

Id

Ego

Superego

Misa Amane L Light Yagami

Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02

Id

Taichi

(Tai)

Impulsive, outspoken, active

Ego

Yamato

(Matt)

Cautious and sensitive, aggressive when provoked (shifts between Id and Superego, with a tendency towards Superego)

Superego

Koushirou

(Izzy)

Logical INTP-type computer whiz
  • Character Development can be seen, however, as a subversion: Taichi matures into the Ego, as is more fitting for a leader, whilst Yamato is revealed to frequently be a lot less cool-headed than he'd like or tries to be, becoming more of an Id, particularly when Takeru (T.K.) is involved.
    • At the same time, Yamato tends to be more thoughtful and less ready to jump the gun than Taichi is, so the above example still fits.
  • Played more straight, however, in 02, which has not one but two examples of this:

Id

Daisuke

(Davis)

shares Taichi's hot-headed qualities

Ego

Takeru

(T.K.)

far more cool-headed than Daisuke, but nonetheless appalled by all the evil the villains are committing. Helps that he's been to the Digital World before, of course.

Superego

former heel Ken to the point where the other Chosen Children thought at first he was still a Complete Monster for destroying the Digimon created from the Control Spires, before the method of their creation was revealed.

Id

Miyako

(Yolei)

the team's resident Genki Girl

Ego

Hikari

(Kari)

emphasised as the character of the purest heart in the series but also able to apply reason to her actions (it helps, of course, that like Takeru she's not new to this)

Superego

Iori

(Cody)

Koushiro's successor in spirit, if not in abilities (since Miyako, unusually for an Id, is the tech girl for 02). He consciously tries to be as stoic and cool-headed as possible
  • It's arguable that characters like Daisuke and Mimi have equally pure hearts, actually, since they tend to be optimistic and believe the best of people no matter what.

Digimon

Id

Masaru

(Marcus)

Brash street fighter, The Messiah, Dumb Is Good

Ego

Yoshino

(Yoshi)

Four years older, usually thinks with one and acts with the other (shifts from favoring Superego to favoring Id)

Superego

Touma

(Thomas)

Calm, cool, logical

Id

Ruki

(Rika)

Ineffectual Loner, angry, definitely the most badass girl this franchise has to offer

Ego

Takato Ascended Fanboy, normal, friendly, definitely the least Hot-Blooded goggle-boy leader (darn you, Masaru!) this franchise has to offer

Superego

Jenrya

(Henry)

Technical Pacifist, thoughtful, Zen-like, definitely the hardest-to-classify character this franchise has to offer

Dragonball Z -- The three Androids:

Id

Ego

Superego

Android 17 Android 18 Android 16

Elfen Lied

Id

Mariko Deranged but, innocent

Ego

Nana Reserved and reasonable; represses and actively fights against her instincts to kill

Lucy Antisocial and repentant for her actions; her sole meaning for living is to atone for her past sins

Et Cetera

  • The three girls:

Id

Benkate Alcoholic and gun-toting, can also be Ego

Ego

Mingchao Ditzy and childish, can therefore also be Id

Superego

Fino Rational and stoic
  • The guys, too:

Id

Yaghi Fino's tag-along younger brother

Ego

Alternate Shy and bespectacled

Superego

Baskerville Revenge-driven
  • And the trio before Yaghi, Fino, and Alternate joined:

Id or Ego

Id or Superego

Ego or Superego

Mingchao Benkate Baskerville

  • Taiyou:

Akaba values intellegence most
  • Hakushuu:

Id

Gao animal instincts personified

Ego

Maria desires victory, but not at the expense of others

Superego

Marco goes for the most straight forward path to victory regardless of those he hurts

88 Alternately, one could argue that Kisiragi is the Ego: he's Marco's Left Hand in contrast to Gaou's Right, worships strength every bit as much as Gaou does, but relies on brainpower to use his strength effectively, putting him right between the two of them.

  • Teikoku:

Id

Yamato plays for the love of competing

Ego

Karin the peace keeper

Superego

Taka the intellectual
  • Team America:

Ghost in the Shell

Id

Ego

Superego

Batou Aramaki The Major

Team Getter Robo? They're a bit of a special case, though, as their positions tend to shift depending on whether the current version owes more to the goofy 1970s anime or the dark and violent manga version.

Id

Ryoma Seems anything but Id when it's played Lighter and Softer, being a typical Hot-Blooded anime hero/team captain; but when played Darker and Edgier, his Id comes out -- Hot Blooded to the point of being psychotically violent.

Ego

Musashi/

Benkei

Although generally a bumbling oaf who charges into battle without thinking, in darker Getter stories where he's still more violent, he's usually less so than his teammates and has a great deal more empathy.

Superego

Hayato Whether he's a cool-headed foil to Ryo's loud, flashy super robo antics or a cold an calculating sociopath, Hayato almost always fits into the Superego mold. His Getter-2's hit and run fighting style reflects this nicely.

Hellsing

Id

Ego

Superego

Alucard Seras Integra

Ichigo100% has the three main love interests:

Id

Satsuki Aggressive and emotional

Superego

Mia the semi-serious and logical one

Katekyo Hitman Reborn's two major villains and main protagonist may fit.

Id

Xanxus Passionate, hair-trigger temper, speech is full of "Angrish"

Ego

Tsuna Level-headed and kindhearted, practically The Messiah, but knows when to be full of asskickery; eventually defeats the other two

Superego

Byakuran Seems like a run-of-the-mill Psychopathic Manchild but takes a level in psycho as well as The Chessmaster as the Future arc progresses

Legend of Galactic Heroes has this primarily in:

Id

Siegfried Kircheis the McCoy

Ego

Reinhard von

Lohengramm

the Captain Kirk figure

Superego

Paul von Oberstein a Machievellian Spock
  • And as a comedy trio:

Id

Despite a Four-Girl Ensemble, the main characters of Lucky Star fits into this:

Ego

Konata

Izumi

balanced, despite being an Otaku girl

Superego

Kagami

Hiiragi

The rational one who often critizes Konata's otaku interests and inability to study hard as well as constantly looking over her twin sister Tsukasa

Possibility 1 Possibility 2 Possibility 3

Id

Tsukasa Konata Konata

Ego

Kagami Kagami Tsukasa

Superego

Miyuki Miyuki Miyuki
    • Basically, the four main girls go like this: Tsukasa and Konata fits into both Id and Ego (Tsukasa tends to lean more to the Ego while Konata more to the Id), Kagami fits into the Ego and Superego, and Miyuki fits into the Superego.

Id

Ego

Superego

Patricia Martin Hiyori Tamura Yutaka Kobayakawa
    • Hiyori has traces of Id, due to her tendency to fantasize on Yuu-chan and Minami romantic relationship; Yutaka also has an Ego side.
    • Minami Iwasaki fits all three spots, depending on the situation.
  • for the Konata household:

Id

Mai-Otome, especially the manga:

Id

Arika perky, hyper, friendly, none-too-bright

Ego

Erstin gentle and shy mediator between the other two

Superego

Nina serious, stern, often at odds with Arika

Maison Ikkoku"", has more than one:

Id

Akemi A very loud and energetic drunk, a bit impulsive and shows off her exhibitionist side on a regular basis

Ego

Hanae Also a rather loud and energetic drunk but also fairly frequently shows off her motherly side

Superego

Yotsuya Despite his highly eccentric actions he has a very calm, deadpan and formal personality

Kyoko Tries to be very rational and mature but her temper sometimes gets in the way

Id

Godai A kind young man but is normally rather temperamental and competitive with Mitaka

Ego

Kyoko Sweet and tries to be understanding to both of these men, does wish that they would stop being so competitive around her

Superego

Mitaka While he genuinely cares for Kyoko he does show off that he is a rich athletic pretty boy on a regular basis

Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch -- each with components of two:

Id / Ego

Lucia Leader, but more concerned with her love life than the rules that might prevent it

Id / Superego

Hanon Picks fights with Lucia over breaking the rules and usually goes on to do the exact same thing (Superego only when others, namely Lucia, are involved)

Ego / Superego

Rina Mediator

Mobile Suit Gundam Seed:

Id

Murrue

Ramius

The Captain and Team Mom; compassionate, humanistic, and willing to bend and break rules as necessary in order to serve what's best for the individuals involved

Ego

Mu La

Flaga

Veteran Ace Pilot who serves as a pragmatic midpoint between Murrue and Natarle, respecting military regulations while recognizing that some situations require flexibility. Maintains a balance between his natural inclinations toward being a good soldier and being a good person

Superego

Natarle

Badgiruel

Sergeant Rock; firmly believing in the importance of discipline and abiding by military regulations

Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny has three Power Trios.

  • The Main Characters:

Id

Shinn

Asuka

An idealist who doesn't realize he's in a show with Grey and Gray Morality. Impulsive, hotheaded, and loyal to his friends before all else; tendency towards blaming others whenever something goes wrong

Ego

Athrun

Zala

Conflicted patriot who wants to believe to the same degree that Shinn does, but too cynical and bitter after his experiences in the first war to implicitly trust those around him. Wavers between following Shinn and Kira for much of the show, eventually settling on the latter.

Superego

Kira

Yamato

Technical Pacifist Messiah who suppresses his own strong feelings in the name of saving the world; very, very focused and putting his own emotions on the backburner in the interest of protecting others
  • The Minerva Trio (actually a great example of a failed Power Trio, in which the Ego is unable to successfully balance the other two, leaving the Superego in control, and the Id violent, angry, and on the verge of a confusion-induced nervous breakdown)

Id

Shinn Asuka Badass Jerkass Woobie Hero with an F In Good. His heart's in the right place, but his Unstoppable Rage gets in the way of his doing the right thing. A wannabe hero who hasn't figured out that Black and White Morality just doesn't happen in Gundam. Suffers a mental breakdown over the course of the show as his desires and his gut instincts come more and more into conflict. Has a definite childish streak.

Ego

Lunamaria Hawke Reasonable and friendly, she tries to be the mediator, but her lack of a forceful personality repeatedly sidelines her, allowing Rey more and more control over the group. She wants to do the right thing, but really isn't sure how to go about it, and her indicision has less than desireable consequences for Shinn in particular.

Superego

Rey Za Burrel Cold-blooded Manipulative Bastard who believes that Utopia Justifies the Means; a calm, focused example of The Quiet One otherwise. Genuinely seems to like the other two but has no qualms about using them in the name of creating paradise.
  • Phantom Pain

Id

Stella/r Louisier Childish, in both good and bad ways; suffers from borderline paranoid schizophrenia

Ego

Auel Neider Ax Crazy, but more "controllable" than Stella/r; has a brotherly relationship with Sting and is a Knight Templar Big Brother towards Stella (when he isn't emotionally abusing her)

Superego

Sting Oakley Brother figure to his teammates and keeps the other two in control; cold, and the most practical of the three; the only one who knows when to call it a day

My Hero Academia:

The Three Main Leading Heroes:

Superego Izuku Midoriya The Cowardly Lion who pushed himself extremely to become The Hero.

The League of Villains Leaders:

Id Tomura Shigaraki A maniacal, psychotic villain seeking to destroy All Might and the established peace he created.

(Bonus points for differentiating from the typical Id-Superego rivalry the series is famed for.)

  • There's also the most obvious one of the Sannin:

Id

Ego

Superego

Jiraiya Tsunade Orochimaru
  • Interestingly, the Akatsuki can be divided using this trope:
Id Ego Superego

Asuka Can barely control her rage (and, sometimes, lust)

Ego

Shinji Wants to prove himself to his father, discharge his guilt, make himself a hero...

Superego

Rei A moral and self-sacrificing Emotionless Girl
  • This triad can also be viewed as the other Freudian triad of Thanatos (Death), Eros (Love/sex) and Mortido (destruction).
  • The three minor characters Toji, Kensuke and Hikari form a Power Trio as well.
  • The Magi computers collectively represent Ritsuko's mother and the three aspects to her personality:

Puella Magi Madoka Magica:

Id

Kyouko

Both hot-headed and following their impulses (very different though those impulses may be)
