** In ''SupermanAndBatmanGenerations'', another {{Elseworld}}, it's revealed that Ultra transferred his brain into the body of Lex Luthor after the pair were nearly killed in the very first story. This may well be a LampshadeHanging on the fact that, in the very beginning, Ultra and Luthor were extremely similar (bald evil genius scientists who battled Superman).

* In ''Film/AllOfMe'', an heiress (Lily Tomlin) who was sick all her life wished to migrate into a younger, healthy body, that of a volunteer, upon her imminent death.

* Betsy Braddock, aka ComicBook/{{Psylocke}} of the XMen, was a British superheroine who - after a very convoluted series of events even by 90s X-Men storyline standards - thought she'd been changed to appear Asian, only to find out she'd actually had her mind swapped with a Japanese assassin named Kwannon (who happened to have identical powers to Betsy's ... and to have purple hair like Betsy). Eventually, Kwannon died while still in Betsy's original body, and Betsy's been Asian (physically, at least) ever since, in a rare example of a body swap that stuck.
