* ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'' introduced the "[=REDHack=]" technology in the "Random Access Memorabilia" arc; StateSec's plan to capture a BigDumbObject was to [[spoiler:use a combination of SuperSoldier and advanced medical technology to stream [[BrainUploading mind backups]] of one of its agents into the skins of the civilian research staff, allowing them to physically convert each victim into a SuperSoldier duplicate of the agent when the [[TriggerPhrase activation signal]] was sent.]] A later storyline reveals [[spoiler:that the same agency has regularly been creating sleeper agents using the same technology, who would be overwritten on-demand by the mind of the same agent.]]

In theory, the sleeper is supposed to have a backup gestalt so they can be restored after the mission and only lose a few days of memories. In practice, the gestalts are often too out of date to be useful, and the agent usually dies during the mission anyway.

* 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. Overlaps with BodySurf a little.

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', one of Brûlée's lesser-used powers is this. Though she mainly uses her Mirror-Mirror Fruit powers to [[MirrorMonster appear in other people's mirrors and emerge through them]], she also has the power to take any animal (human or otherwise) and physically alter them into a mirror image of someone or something else, including herself. The effects are easily undone, however, which is why she uses it only to confuse her enemies and to stall for time.
