* In the backstory of ''VideoGame/EndlessSpace'' the Endless have found a way to transfer their minds into machines. This caused a great schism in the Endless society, between those who want to remain organic, and those who embrace virtulization. This sparked a massive war which lead to the extinction of the Endless.

* ''CarWars''. Autoduelists store their memories on a machine and have clone bodies made. If they die in the arena, their memories are "played back" into their clone and they live again (well, sort of).
* Extremely common in ''EclipsePhase''. Most of the surviving population of the solar system escaped the devastation of Earth by uploading their minds off-world, and backups are ubiquitous. Unfortunately, there's also a severe shortage of bodies, and millions of info-refugees desperate to own one.

* ''[[VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh Tron 2.0]]'', the video game sequel to the cult sci-fi Disney flick ''Film/{{Tron}}'', featured Ma3a, an artificially intelligent construct and vector for the digitization correction algorithms who was modeled after the original movie's Lora Baines, player character Jet Bradley's mother. It is hinted however that Ma3a actually has part of Lora's consciousness integrated into her program (said part having been digitized during the digitization laser accident that claimed Lora's life).

* ''StarshipTitanic'': all the robots on board have these have copied human minds courtesy of 'personality transfers'. It's like blood donation in America, which means you get lots of people who really shouldn't be donating.
* In ''DefenseGridTheAwakening'', the general who won the war against the aliens 1000 years ago had his brain uploaded in case they came back, which they have. He usually plays the part of the ExpositionFairy, but he can't seem to get raspberries off his mind.
* In ''TotalAnnihilation'', this is what sparks the game's galaxy-wide [[ApocalypseHow class 4 apocalypse]].

* In ''MuvLuvAlternative'', this happens to [[spoiler: Kagami Sumika and she becomes the "00-Unit". Although the process killed her, she was [[AndIMustScream already just a]] BrainInAJar, so that actually isn't much. The end result is that she becomes a Quantum Computer with a practically human body that isn't quite human.]]

* The plot of "ARG/SignalAndNoise" revolves around two people who have been uploaded onto a computer that was [[ColdEquation only made to hold one mind]]. Not to mention these two people's memories of their past lives have been largely lost due to the transfer. Fun.

* In the strange society depicted in [[Creator/IainBanks Iain M. Banks]]'s book ''Feersum Endjinn'', when a person dies their mind is automatically uploaded by organic systems in their brain (not implants; they grow there naturally implying they are germ-line genetic engineering). They then get downloaded into physical bodies again the first 7 deaths, then spend their next 8 rebirths solely in a virtual reality. Then they die for good. Nondestructive uploads can also be made, and experienced reintegrated at a later date. This allows for the possibility of people uploading copies of themselves to have a passionate affair in a suitably private virtuality, and then redownload the experiences into their minds and fully appreciate them later without interfering with work or family life.
