* ''Manga/Claymore'': [[spoiler:Basic]] Yoma need to switch bodies quickly before their hosts die from the strain of flawed Awakening, so they force their hosts into extreme hunger for human bodies. It is not known if this type of yoma is actually sentient or just a worm.

** Angels are so powerful that they will do this to any host that isn't specifically suited to them. [[spoiler:Sam and Dean]] are the result of generations of breeding to produce viable hosts for [[spoiler:Lucifer and Michael]]. Satan has to go through a few different host bodies, since they degenerate from his sheer power. [[spoiler: He believes Sam's body has enough power on its own to stand the possession.]] Even Raphael's true vessel is left catatonic after being his possession. It may just be he didn't care to heal him, as Michael promises Dean he wouldn't leave him a "drooling mess" after possessing him.

*** In the backstory, Elue Silverhand voluntarily got possessed by Mystra, in order to give birth to the innately {{semi divine}} Seven Sisters. Her husband noticed that something very unhealthy goes on, and with an expert's help managed to determine that "some very powerful entity" rides her, but not who -- naturally, if the goddess of magic tries to keep a personal secret, everyone else is down to guess-work. Since nothing else helped, Dornal decapitated his wife to "free" from the possession. From this point it all got ''more awkward'' for everyone involved, of course.

* In ''Film/NoobLaQueteLegendaire'', [[spoiler:Dortös]] implies this applies to his GrandTheftMe victims to an extent, due to talking about using his first host until his ressources run out. It however seems to be slow enough that he can actively search for a more compatible host and the videogame context implies his PlayerCharacter host will get out of it with lower HitPoints rather than outright dead.

* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' villain Worldkiller-1 burns out any body he possess if his host isn't strong enough to contain his spirit. In ''ComicBook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' he possessed a baseline human and his victim's body melted in a matter of seconds.

** The Bodysurfing human wizard Marcus from Carpe Noctem can only stay in his host bodies for a short time before they combust, killing the victim. He is pleased to discover that when he possesses an already-undead vampire (Angel), this kind of body is immune from the combustion.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Deadlands}}: Hell on Earth'' inverts the trope; the cyborgs are robotized dead bodies possessed by demons, which are being used as soul fuel for the body.
