** To a lesser [[MindScrew and/or]] greater degree, Aranea can control [[spoiler:the clock(s) in charge of choosing whether God Tiers will [[ResurrectiveImmortality revive or not]].]] From a different universe. Which, again, means Her Imperious Condescension can probably do the same (and [[BaseBreaker Vriska]], though hers seems to be weaker).

* In ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaChroniclesOfSorrow Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow]]'', you play as Soma Cruz, a seemingly-average teenager who mysteriously develops the power to [[YourSoulIsMine capture and command the souls of monsters he slays]], up to and including ''Death''.
* Legendary ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' probably qualify for this, especially in the later games when they are treated more like {{Physical God}}s or {{Eldritch Abomination}}s than like regular {{Mons}}, and you can still stick them in a Pokeball and make them fight for your glory.

* In ''VideoGame/EarthBound'', Pokey Minch ultimately usurps Giygas, who's reduced to a mindless "almighty idiot" and living weapon by the time the heroes arrive to stop him. Even when Giygas is defeated, Pokey escapes through time with all of Giygas's technology and weapons, vowing to return.

** Captain Ginyu manages to steal Goku's body after he proves to be stronger than him. It backfires badly for him since he doesn't know any of Goku's power-up techniques, and his mind and spirit are out-of-sync with Goku's body. He eventually get stomps by Vegeta and when he tries to steal Vegeta's body, he ends up in the body of a frog.

* In ''[[Fanfic/DisneysWarACrossoverStory Disney's War A Crossover Story]]'', the Horned King plays this trope straight in the climax: he gets control of Chernabog's body and powers (becoming the "Horned God"). When he is defeated with a magic sword, Chernabog is restored to his usual self.

** Babidi has a powerful spell that allows him to control the hearts of evil people, turning even the strongest of warriors into his loyal slave. Vegeta, however, proves uncontrollable thanks to his pride and his overwhelming desire to fight Goku no matter the cost.
** Baby from ''GT'' possesses people by laying eggs in their brains after he body surfs. He eventually finds a permanent host in Vegeta and takes over the Earth, leaving only Goku, Pan, Mr. Satan, Uub, and Buu free of Baby's influence.

** This is the concept behind piloting a Titan as well. The pilot, called a Princeps, must link with the Titan and bend its Machine Spirit to their will. This gives them the impression of actually being the Titan, an addictive feeling of power and strength. The trope is also inverted here as any Princeps who stays in command long enough is eventually dominated by the Titan's overpowering spirit. (In this case, Cthulhu hijacks you.)
