* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' has SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, now dead after the events of ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'', trying to hijack Batman's mind via his infected blood after Batman is exposed to Scarecrow's fear gas, appearing as a hallucination that, for the most part, simply makes jokes and heckles Batman, but gets stronger as the night goes on and tries to assert control. He even nearly succeeds couple times, most notably on Stagg's airship when Joker temporarily takes over and beats several militia soldiers nearly to death.

* The villain of Creator/MercedesLackey's ''[[Literature/DianaTregarde Jinx High]]'' is a witch who's been stealing her daughters' bodies for several hundred years; this seriously throws the protagonist, who's not expecting the skilled magician she's looking for to be in high school.
* Another villain of Lackey's, the evil sorcerer [[BigBad Ma'ar]] from the ''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'' series, manages to prolong his life for centuries by magically propelling his soul into a succession of bodies from his own bloodline (killing the original soul in the process). [[spoiler:His failure to do this completely the last time forms the basis of his eventual defeat.]] When the Mage Storms begin to [[spoiler: drive Firesong insane]], one sign is his growing obsession with finding an "ethical" version of Ma'ar's technique.
