* Creator/RobertSheckley's ''Mindswap'' novel involves a protagonist spontaneously deciding to visit Mars but wanting to avoid the lengthy trip, so he opts to swap minds with a Martian who wants to visit Earth. He finds himself in a room on Mars in the body of a Martian only to be old immediately that he must vacate the body. Apparently, the previous occupant of the body signed two contracts, and the contract with another person was signed first. The protagonist wants to go back to his own body but finds out it was stolen, so he goes on a desperate quest to return his own body, including switching bodies several times. In the end, he corners and defeats the thief.

* SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom has the Ovoid mind switch, an alien technique taught to him by the, guess, Ovoids, a species of aliens incapable of reproduction at one point so they had to clone their bodies and transfer their minds into it. Despite a later Comicbook/SheHulk issue retconning it as being difficult if there's a soul / mind in the body the "caster" is trying to inhabit, Doom seems to be able to do this with relative ease, especially after the Unthinkable arc, where all he is is a spirit, and he swaps and hops about the Comicbook/FantasticFour until Reed shoots Doom-in-Thing, killing both, sending Victor von Doom... ''to hell''.

* In ''Literature/LockIn'', a sizable percentage of the population of the world is suffering from Hayden's Syndrome, one of the symptoms of a flu-like disease. The titular condition is of the AndIMustScream variety - the Haydens are unable to interact with the world in any way. After trillions of dollars in research, several methods of allowing the Haydens to live semi-normal lives are developed. One involves the use of Integrators, a rare form of Hayden who did not suffer a lock in, but whose brain chemistry was still altered. An Integrator can be used as a temporary vessel for a locked-in Hayden. The more common alternative is the use of Threeps, robotic avatars, although they don't provide for a full experience.

* Mabus, the BigBad of ''FirstWave'' can do this using his PsychicPowers. The other Gua can ''sort of'' do this by copying their minds onto spherical storage devices and uploading themselves to a new husk (human/Gua hybrid grown in a lab). However, Mabus can only successfully possess hosts that are mentally strong enough to hold his essense. At least three people are shown to be able to do this: [[TheChosenOne Cade]] himself (the original husk for Mabus was his clone), [[ActionGirl Jordan]] (he ''really'' enjoys being a woman especially after seducing Cade), and a software mogul. Another episode featured a Gua who figured out how to do this to any human. The only thing that gave away his identity was the constant whistling of "London Bridge Is Falling Down".
