* Papa Smurf does this with Gargamel in ''ComicBook/TheSmurfs'' comic book story "Smurf Vs. Smurf" (and the AnimatedAdaptation version of "Romeo And Smurfette") in order to get the Smurfs to stop fighting with each other -- in the comic book story, [[SillyReasonForWar over the use of the word "smurf" in compounded words and phrases]]; in the cartoon episode, to end a village-wide ShipToShipCombat between Hefty and Handy over Smurfette.

* The 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).

** Speaking of Veronica, one issue of her own book featured a mystical pendant that swapped her with her own mother for a day. The two need to attend a fancy party together, and predictable shenanigans ensue. After that, the two just decide to wait it out, and pass the time with card games long into the night.

** ComicBook/EmmaFrost was rather fond of this one. While still a full-time villain she swapped bodies with {{Storm}} as part of an [[GrandTheftMe evil plot]]; years later, just before her [[HeelFaceTurn switch to heroism]], she accidentally swapped bodies with Iceman, and then proceeded to fuel his (already significant) insecurities by using his powers far more effectively than he ever had. She also tried to commit suicide while in his body, but she never mentions that -- and considering she's not above using her telepathic powers to make you vomit uncontrollably whenever you hear the word "broccoli", you probably shouldn't either.

:: This issue was loosely adapted as "Freaky" in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Ultimate Spider-Man}}'' cartoon, with the main difference being that Mesmero was the cause of it.

* DoctorDoom learned the trick of switching bodies from a benign alien race called the Ovoids. He first used it quite successfully on Mr. Fantastic in ''Fantastic Four'' #10 (1963) but not that often afterwards.

* ''{{Sleepwalker}}'' and his human host, Rick Sheridan, ended up switching bodies for several issues after a botched attempt to release Sleepwalker while Rick was awake. In Sleepwalker's body, Rick ended up battling supervillains and supernatural horrors of the Mindscape, while Sleepy had to fill in for Rick in his human life, ironically having more success with women than Rick himself. The body swap was, [[spoiler: in fact, a key part of the EvilPlan hatched by {{Big Bad}} Cobweb to invade the Earth and make Rick think Sleepwalker was the invasion's leader, hindering any attempt Sleepy might make to stop him.]]

* Archie and Mr. Weatherbee in one issue of the ''ComicBook/ArchieComics'' switch bodies due to screwing around with one of Dilton's machines. It only lasts for a day, but that's ''well'' long enough for Archie to screw up Mr. Weatherbee's speech and [[InSeriesNickname The Bee]] to make Veronica furious at ol' Arch.

* 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).
