* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'''s Makuta were a race of beings capable of possessing soulless bodies and machines. This ability was also the main point of their EvilPlan. Their leader, Makuta Teridax, spent some time masquerading as the guard-robot Maxilos, then went on to become a god by possessing the body of Mata Nui, the HumongousMecha [[GeniusLoci which housed their entire universe]].

* Often believed to be the case with the [[AIIsACrapshoot killer animatronics]] in ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys''. WordOfGod says that [[http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20140825050337/freddy-fazbears-pizza/images/6/6d/Scott_confirming_animatronics_haunted.png the characters are "haunted"]], and piecing together the evidence trail in the game heavily implies that [[spoiler:the suits are to some degree haunted by the ghosts of five children who were abducted and never found, because they had been murdered and their bodies hidden inside the animatronic costumes. The amount of control the supposed ghosts have over the endoskeletons is heavily debated.]]
** All but confirmed in [[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys2 the sequel]]. [[spoiler:It's also implied that one of the other animatronics was behind the murders.]]
** As of ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3'' [[spoiler: this is CONFIRMED in the most terrifying way. Freddy, Bonnie, Chica, Foxy, and Golden Freddy were inhabited by the souls of dead children, after the Puppet, another murdered child, tried to help them avenge their deaths. Also, Springtrap, the new monstrosity stalking you in the game, is not only haunted but also has the corpse of the murderous Purple Man inside]].
