In some cases, it's safe to state that a B.D.B is a more powerful version of the standard MeatPuppet, though expected to be less common. Contrast TheDividual.

** The series reveal that [[HumansAreSpecial humans are the ultimate version of this trope]] as far as the Yeerks are concerned. They are have better senses than the Gedd, need less specialized diets than the Carnivourous Taxxons or the Herbivore Hork-Bajir, are not controlled by their hunger like the Taxxons, more dexterous than the Hork-Bajir (who in turn were improvements over the Gedd) and have a better stomach for warfare than pacifistic Hork-Bajir, and most importantly, are more numerous than all the above races (including the Yeerks, unhosted) combined. There are more humans then there are Yeerks to host them by an order of magnitude. Because of many of these traits, the Yeerks actually decide that a silent invasion is better than a full offensive like the other races... they're downright terrified of what the humans would be capable in an open fight.

* Subverted with ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' enemy Wordkiller-1 -an alien, body-surfing symbiote-. In ''ComicBook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'', he transferred his soul into the body of [[spoiler:Supergirl]] because she was crazy powerful and inmensely strong, and he thought she was only a stupid girl. By the time he realized she wasn't dumb at all and [[spoiler:she had outsmarted him to force him out of her body and kill him, it was too late.]]

* The recurring ''JusticeLeagueOfAmerica'' enemy General Eiling transferred his mind into the body of the indestructible Shaggy Man. In this case the host's stupidity became a problem, as Eiling's intelligence didn't survive being forced to use the Shaggy Man's tiny brain.
* Johan briefly had one in ''{{BPRD}}'' before it was killed by Captain Zombie's jaguar demon form. He's been trying with little success to clone a new one ever since.
* Warstar of [[MarvelComics Marvel]]'s Shi'ar Imperial Guard is a form of this, consisting of a big guy ridden by a small one half-hidden on his back who does most of the actual thinking for the pair (and also has the ability to dish out electric shocks) -- to the point that at least once when he was taken out of action, his bigger partner stopped fighting, too. Oddly, the two seem to be ''robots'', suggesting that somebody may have designed them to embody this trope on purpose.
