* In one ''ComicBook/{{Excalibur}}'' story, the ''whole team'' (well, mostly) was flipped with their enemies the Crazy Gang, using a device invented by Tweedledope, a member of the villain team: Captain Britain with Tweedledope, Meggan with the Knave, Nightcrawler with the Jester, and Phoenix with the Executioner. (Presumably, the villains intended to flip shadowcat with the Red Queen, but Shadowcat escaped.) Captain Britain was able to somehow access Tweedledope's skills to use the device and reverse the effect (after the usual hero-villain-free-for-all, naturally).

* Recently happened in AllNewWolverine for it's first Annual, when Laura swaps bodies with SpiderGwen. The two go on an adventure to fix it, leading to the hilariously painful moment when Gwen-in-Laura's-body tried to make use of the claws, only to stab herself in the head and pass out from the pain.

** The {{Justice League|OfAmerica}} had an issue where this happened with all the core members getting mixed up with each other. The big spoiler [[spoiler: was when it turned out that Superman didn't end up in Batman's body but in Kobra's and Kobra pretended to be Superman trapped in Batman's body.]]

* The Creator/DCComics ''Silver Age'' megaseries by Mark Waid involves a villain called Agamemno swapping the JusticeLeagueOfAmerica's minds with the LegionOfDoom. This means that all the powered heroes have lost their powers, and even the unpowered ones have lost some of their abilities (Batman is stuck in Penguin's unathletic body; Green Arrow complains that Felix Faust has lousy eyesight, spoiling his aim).

* Issue 21 of the ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' comic is built around this trope as an accident involving [[ItMakesSenseInContext GIR, pudding, and a mind-swap machine]] causes Zim to switch bodies with Gaz, and Dib with GIR. TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody is, for the most part, in full effect -- Gaz gains Zim's drive to TakeOverTheWorld while Zim becomes apathetic and game-obsessed, and Dib is ultimately rendered insane by the information in GIR's robot brain. GIR himself, meanwhile, doesn't change, and in fact doesn't even seem aware of what's happened.

* One ''[[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Uncle Scrooge]]'' comic book had Magica swap bodies with Scrooge in order to steal his number one dime. Of course Scrooge is then able to access Magica's own hoard of magic tricks and use them against her.

* A variant occurs in ''ComicStrip/SafeHavens'': Samantha and Dave accidentally drank DNA samples the dodos had left out instead of their drinks, and ended up turning into each other. The night before their wedding, no less.

* In an episode of ''ComicBook/{{Iznogoud}}'', a wizard invents a magic bowl: whenever two people drink consecutively from it, they exchange souls. HilarityEnsues when this new invention gets tested by several patrons in an inn, just for fun. One of the catches is that it doesn't have to be actually ''people'' who drink: animals count too. (The wizard himself ends up in the body of a parrot.) Or even ''inanimate objects'', for that matter.

** In a hilarious case of DidntThinkThisThrough, Doom once switched body with Daredevil and threw him in a prison cell, but didn't tell his men about this plan beforehand. As a result, Daredevil is released from prison by Doom's men, and declares war on all of Latveria's neighbours, forcing Doom to switch his body back in order to avoid an international incident.
