* All of science fiction author Creator/JackChalker's works seem obsessed with transformation and body swapping, and this kind of "rescue" appears in more than a few, with the ur-example being Nathan Brazil's soul transference from his dying body into a deer-like creature in [[Literature/WellWorld ''Midnight at the Well of Souls'']].

* Steve Austin, the protagonist of the Creator/MartinCaidin novel ''Cyborg'' and the TV show it inspired, ''Series/TheSixMillionDollarMan'', was an Airforce test pilot rebuilt with cybernetic parts after a horrific crash. He spends much of the book wrestling with CyberneticsEatYourSoul; in the TV show not so much.
** Mostly because the prosthetics in the book are more "realistic": He can't see through his bionic eye, though it can act as a micro-camera; his bionic limbs carry limited and unfamiliar sensation; and he only has 'super strength' in his grip, and in some forms of striking. Though he can run at tremendous speed almost indefinitely, and has a broad variety of built in equipment.

* In LightNovel/HighschoolDxD, this is how another being's transformation into an angel or devil generally works, Issei being the primary series example. It does not need to be done to save someone from death, but it can if necessary.
** [[spoiler: Later in the series, this happens to Issei again. He is mortally poisoned, and so his consciousness/soul is transferred to his Sacred Gear (which is locked in armor form) while Ophis and Great Red create him a new body. He looks the same in the end, but his new body is more Dragon than Human (until he gets converted to a Devil again).]]

* A universe (known to fans as the Rejuve Universe) was created by author Lurking Dragon in which technology exists for rejuvenating people to children aged e.g. 5 or 6. The newly rejuved people are the same people as the pre-rejuved old people, retaining their memories and knowledge, but acquiring the emotions of a child. While primarily used as legal punishment (criminals are rejuvenated back to children where they are raised by a new set of parents - sometimes several times - and have no power of their own), it is sometimes used in an emergency to save the life of a severely injured or sick person.
* In the novel ''I Shall Fear No Evil'', by Robert Heinlein, the main character, Johann Sebastian Bach Smith, who is very old, is given a new life as a young woman by having his brain transplanted into the body of a beautiful young lady, who had been his secretary before she was murdered.
