Can a King checkmate a King?

Excuse me for your time this question may take.
Is it possible that with a back up piece a King can checkmate the opposite King?
It is not legal to checkmate the opponent's King with your own King even if your King is backed up with a friendly piece.
Both Kings cannot attack themselves under any circumstance.
In fact, a King can't be near the other since it is an illegal move.
It should always be a square between the two.
