* Nearly all Surgebinders from ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'' are this. [[They get powers from having spren bound to them by having a quality matching the quality that the spren stands for. Kaladin, for example, is an honorable person and thus is bound to an Honorspren. The powers increase as they choose to embody the ideas of their spren, with the spren eventually becoming an extremely powerful living weapon. If they reject that quality or idea, they kill the spren instead.]]

* One theory of the origin of mitochondria.

to:

* One theory of the origin of mitochondria. The cellular powerplant organelles have their own DNA separate from the nuclear DNA, and it is similar to some bacterial DNA. It's theorized that these proto-bacteria had superior biochemical processes when it came to metabolism, and in exchange for some form of mutualistic symbiosis, linked with other proto-life that had much bigger cells. They became so intertwined as life evolved that these bacteria just became another part of the cell.

* In ''CreatureTech'', an alien parasite rips Dr. Ong's heart out, then attaches itself to his chest and serves as a replacement heart. It also provides him with several extra limbs, skills in hand-to-hand combat (the thing can learn kung-fu by watching movies), and when Ong gets really upset, teleportation powers.

* The BlueBeetle scarab.
* Toxin from Creator/MarvelComics. ComicBook/{{Venom}} tries to be this at times, depending on the host (Eddie Brock pulled off a decent [[AntiHero Anti-Hero]], Mac Gargan faked it, and Flash Thompson is this until the symbiote freaks out and starts [[ImAHumanitarian eating things]]). Anti-Venom tries, but Eddie's a little too... [[AxCrazy off in the head]] by now to pull it off for extended periods.

* In the ''{{Futurama}}'' episode "Parasites Lost", Fry gets infected with worms. These worms make Fry stronger, smarter, and healthier. The Planet Express crew [[FantasticVoyagePlot travel into Fry's body to get rid of the parasites]], then Leela stops them because she likes the new Fry better. [[StatusQuoIsGod And then Fry removes the parasites anyway]] because he wants to know that Leela likes ''him'' and not what the parasites made him into.

* ''ProjectArms'', cyborg bits with artificial intelligences.
* ''DGrayMan'', parasite type Innocences.
* ''HellTeacherNube'', although closer to SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan then usual. Although he's extremely skilled and powerful even ''without'' the help of his Oni Hand, many of the [[{{youkai}} critters]] he encounters would be unbeatable or at least extremely difficult to approach without it.
* The Aburame clan of ''{{Naruto}}'' act as human hives for armies of destructive bugs, who live off their chakra and can swarm and poison enemies.
