* In Creator/AndreNorton's ''[[Literature/{{Warlock}} Forerunner Foray]]'', Ziantha is sent back by the artifact into the body of Vintra, entombed with the corpse of Turan -- which is revived by another mind sent back. After they hunt for the artifact's other element, Ziatha is sent back again into the body of D'Eyree of the Eyes. She apports the other eye back to that time, and they return to the tomb, which allows her to apport them both back.

* In the 1933 film ''Berkeley Square'' starring Creator/LeslieHoward, a man of the 1930s switches minds with his identical ancestor in the 1780s. It was remade in 1951 as ''The House in the Square'', starring Tyrone Power.



** And Lovecraft got the idea from a 1933 film called ''Berkeley Square'', which had a similar setup but lacked H.P's usual unimaginable horror angle. Lovecraft [[SawStarWarsTwentySevenTimes saw the film four times.]]

* ''Series/TheFlash2014'' has an episode where TheFlash accidentally does this, though he only goes back about a day. It's also debatable if it's mental, since Barry clearly sees another version of him running by, except his past self fades away. Possibly a case of NeverTheSelvesShallMeet. In fact, physical time travel is not only possible but [[spoiler:serves to create the show's 'verse by having the Reverse-Flash travel back from the future and kill Barry's mother, resulting in a new timeline]].
