* Church does this a couple of times after becoming a ghost in Machinima/RedVsBlue, but not maliciously, just when he really needs a body. The people he possesses typically don't remember anything that happened, though. [[spoiler:Epsilon does not seem to have inherited this ability.]] (In contrast, O'Malley's victims tend to retain some elements of free will.) Arguably [[spoiler:the Meta]] is like this by the end, either because of [[spoiler:Sigma having control over him, or simply having so many AIs shouting in his head at once]].

* [[DuelingMovies Two movies]] use this in different ways: ''Film/{{Gamer}}'' is basically a FirstPersonShooter where you are the person and a death row inmate is the shooter - and one shooter wants out. Less related is ''{{Surrogates}}'', which is basically SecondLife in real life, only the "avatars" are slightly overdone UncannyValley robots. Someone has found a way to kill the "users" when they kill the robots, which was previously impossible (there is a grizzled detective, but he's a long-time Surrogate user and probably not as technophobic as, say, Will Smith's character in ''Film/IRobot'').

* [[TallDarkandHandsome Gilbert Nightray]] of ''{{Pandora Hearts}}'' gets this treatment when he, Oz, and [[LittleMissBadass Alice]] go to the mansion where the coming-of-age ceremonies are held. [[MarionetteMaster Zwei]] uses her [[OurMonstersAreDifferent chain]] Doldum to bind his limbs with puppet strings and [[MarionetteMotion force him]] to [[spoiler: kill Oz. He ends up breaking free before he does, of course.]] Suffice to say, [[BrainwashedandCrazy his mind was also being controlled]].

* 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.
