* ''Manga/{{Parasyte}}'', when ''Manga/{{Parasyte}}'' has the titular shapeshifting parasites that burrow into a human host's head, eat their brain, and take over the body, resulting in intelligent but emotionless monsters that look human and kill regular humans for sustenance. When the parasites don't kill you by absorbing your head, you screw up the takeover and end up as one of these.replacing a different body part than the head, you'll end up with the parasite SharingABody with the human host. This is the case with the main character, whose arm is replaced by a parasite, and the two must learn to work together to fight the other parasites who consider this duo a threat.

scarab is a semi-sapient piece of alien tech that is essentially weaponized PoweredArmor: it bonds to a host and encases them in a supremely powerful suit of exo-armor... whilst simultaneously [[MindRape taking over their mind and turning them into a slave-warrior of the scarab's creators]]. Fortunately for the Blue Beetle, ''his'' scarab was damaged before bonding with him, allowing him to retain control.

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'' gives us Sherry Birkin and Jake Muller. Sherry still carries the G-Virus in her body from her infection in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'': The vaccine she received stopped her from mutating but gave her a ridiculously sped-up HealingFactor. Jake on the other hand has a variant of the Progenitor Virus in his system which he inherited from dear old dad, which boosts his [[CharlesAtlasSuperPower physical capabilities]] and makes him immune to the C-Virus.

** [[spoiler: Also, it's heavily implied that Ethan Winters himself became infected early into the game, but lucked out by getting the physical boosting side-effects -- most notably a decent HealingFactor that lets him [[PullingYourselfTogether reattach severed limbs]] -- long before the mind-whammying side-effects started kicking in, allowing him to take down the BigBad.]]
