* In Creator/GregEgan's ''The Safe-Deposit Box'' short story, the protagonist's mind inhabits a different body every day. They all live in the same general area and are of similar age (and since the age the protagonist started identifying himself as a boy, they are usually male), but nothing else seems to give any clues as to how or why it happens. In fact, it wasn't until school age that the protagonist realized that this isn't a norm, and other people don't "change" into someone else every day.

** The Big Finish adventure "Retail Therapy" in the Ninth Doctor Chronicles concludes with [[spoiler: the Ninth Doctor, with Jackie Tyler's help, transferring his consciousness into the body of the villain, reversing the life draining devices he sent out, and surfing back to his own body as the man's body "wears a bit thin", so to speak.]]

* The Goa'uld in ''Series/StargateSG1'' can do this, but tend to stick with one host as long as possible (to the point of Apophis keeping a body that had been badly scarred by the torture he'd endured at the hands of a rival.) Anubis, on the other hand, was part {{Energy Being|s}} and once his containment field was destroyed, he had to possess humans. The bodies burned out quickly, necessitating taking new ones frequently.

* In the ''Literature/SonjaBlue'' series, fire demons work this way. They possess a body to give themselves a physical presence, but their fiery nature causes the body to slowly cook from the inside, so before long they have to choose another body to leap into.

*** When Flemeth learns about this [[spoiler:she realizes that she can combine these two by tricking the archdemon soul into the body of her unborn granddaughter (who would not have a soul yet), and then use that body for herself, when it is old enough. Getting all the power of the archdemon in the process]].

* There's a CloneByConversion example in ''Literature/{{Slimer}}''. Charlie is a genetically-engineered shapeshifting shark who absorbs the minds and bodies of his victims. [[spoiiler:Near the end, as his original body is dying, he "impregnates" the body of a Brinkstone helicopter pilot instead of absorbing him. The original body dies, while the cells implanted into the pilot convert the man's body into an exact duplicate of Charlie, with his memories and personality.]]
