* In {{Mortasheen}}, this is the power of the monster[[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/cackle.htm Cackle]]. Who was originally designed to watch over children. And yes, they do play that for all the creepy it's worth. And it is ''inverted'' with the creature [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/victrossus.htm Victrossus]], which is essentially a body that puppeteers the brains of others.

* Kandra in Brandon Sanderson's ''{{Mistborn}}'' series can consume a corpse, stripping it clean down to the bones, then reform their own bodies into the flesh they just absorbed. The end result is that kandra can take someone's corpse and imitate their appearance exactly. It also helps that they, as a species, have extremely good acting skills--it has been shown that a kandra impersonator can trick people who ''knew'' the person pre-digestion.

* The final part of the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' ExpandedUniverse duology ''The Brave and the Bold'' concerns the final of the four Malkus Artifacts...a mind-control device which the spirit of Malkus himself resides. That spirit controls everyone on Narendra III and, through the events of the previous parts, Spock, [=McCoy=], Kira, and Robert [=DeSoto=]. It is so complete that its victims can't even do autonomic functions by themselves. Spock defeats the control through a mind-meld with Worf, and Kira defeats it through sheer willpower.
