** Later on, there is another power called "Little Eye," which allows the user to see through and control the movements of small animals. Though it was created by and belongs to one of Prince Woble's guards, it, just like the Satellite Dragonflies, got borrowed (this time voluntarily) by [[spoiler:Kurapika, who then transferred it to Woble's mother Queen Oito. She uses it to control a cockroach [[AirVentPassageway to spy on the other princes through the ventilation shafts]], only to discover]] [[spoiler: Prince Tserriednich's [[AttackAnimal Nen Beast]] within them]].

* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' has this as one of the most useful applications of Borrowing (possession magic). A mouse can walk through cracks, an eagle can fly high and fast, and an owl can sit on your shoulder and let you read through its eyes. The crystal ball has image quality problems[[note]]if one is using a cracked green glass fishing float[[/note]] and its efficiency drops with distance[[note]]As seen during the Leshp war, when the wizards attempt to tune in on events in Leshp and even more remote Klatch: they can barely see for static[[/note]]. An Omniscope is hard to aim, and scrying without enchanted hardware may or may not exist at all[[note]]it totally does: "we used to make do with a drop of ink in a bowl of water"[[/note]], so Borrowing has major advantages if the possessor is skilled enough.

* In ''The Bad Place'' by Creator/DeanKoontz, [[CreepyTwins creepy twin sisters]] Violet and Verbina have this ability. They share a constant mind link with each other and the dozens of cats occupying their home. Craving wild and evocative sensation, they often drift outward to possess the bodies of hunting animals and their prey to feel both the thrill of the hunt and the pain of death. They cannot do this to humans however.
