* Happens rather literally in ''PsychicAcademy''. After an incident in the backstory where Ren got killed and his sister Fafa ended up needing a heart replacement, Ren's heart was placed in Fafa. Since that point, whenever Fafa's pulse rises above a certain level, she turns ''into'' Ren. This isn't just a personality shift, her body literally changes gender.

The motives for this can vary a great deal. Sometimes there's a [[ElCidPloy tangible need for this level of deception]] -- the dead sibling may have been the linchpin in high-level government negotiations, and the surviving sibling is the only one who can plausibly play the role. It can also be a slightly misguided attempt to live your sister's dream's ''for'' her, since she didn't get the chance. This trope can also be exactly as disturbing as it sounds, and we end up with one AxCrazy sibling convinced [[ThoroughlyMistakenIdentity he really ''is'' her]].g
