** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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).

* In an episode of ''{{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.

** There was an interesting case in the ''Superman'' tie-ins to ''InfiniteCrisis''. During their titanic tussle on Earth-2, Superman and Kal-L end up reliving each other's lives, but start altering it. For Superman, revealing his identity to the Senate would end up leading to a future where Earth-2 was totally unprepared for [[CrisisOnInfiniteEarths the Anti-Monitor]], leading to him being crushed like a bug. For Kal-L, calling out Batman's bluff during the ''ComicBook/ManOfSteel'' mini-series and snapping Doomsday's neck and just ''not dying'' leads to a world where a superhuman war destroys the planet. They both think that the other world is the one that can't exist.
