** Though, this is less a cause of the bodies themselves burning out faster, since in reality it's [[spoiler: his ''soul'' that's burning out.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'', Corvo has the ability "Possession" which can be used on either animals or humans, neither of which respond kindly to the process. Animals die once the possession ends (with some, like rats, winding up as LudicrousGibs), while humans puke their guts out.

* ''Film/TheHidden'': The reason why the evil alien needs to switch bodies much more frequently than its good counterpart is because of the drastic wear and tear it inflicts on its hosts. When it possesses an old man with a stomach ailment, it actually has trouble keeping it alive and simply covers its wounds with duct tape. It bleeds out within minutes after he ditches it for a younger one.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', Wan wanted to be able to bend multiple elements to fight Vaatu. The Lion Turtle explained to him that humans lack the energy needed to bend more than one element at a time. To get around this problem, Wan allowed himself to fuse with Raava every time he needed to bend multiple elements. Holding a spirit and its extra power inside his body was extremely dangerous. Raava warned Wan that if she stayed inside him for too long he would die. In the end [[spoiler:they solve the problem by making the fusion permanent, starting the Avatar Cycle.]]

* In ''{{Smallville}}'', any host for a certain Phantom Zone criminal dies in 24 hours. Naturally, a Kryptonian body can withstand it much better, but somehow, trying to possess Clark results in the creation of a new, cloned body (with the same clothes Clark is wearing, too, though the color of his jacket becomes the color of his shirt and vice versa.) He becomes the series' version of Bizarro.

* The alien leader Mabus from ''FirstWave'' was able to possess humans, but the process was often fatal, sometimes within seconds. He eventually realized the host's physical health was unimportant, but rather high intelligence was the key to prolonged survival.

* ''ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'': After losing [[spoiler: Utsusemimaru]] as a host, AnimatedArmor villain Dogold is forced to use [[EliteMooks Cambrimas]]. Unfortunately for him, they only last a month, forcing him to keep moving on to a new Cambrima when the current one perishes. They ''melt'' when he leaves them. His goal for some time is getting [[spoiler: Utchy]] back, then it's finding a new host. Eventually, [[spoiler: the new general Endorf makes an ass of himself once too often, and so once weakened by King's SuperMode, Dogold kills two birds with one stone, getting rid of him and getting an even stronger host than Utsusemimaru.]]

* In ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'', {{Darkseid}}'s minions are frantically bioengineering new bodies for the New Gods of Apokolips because they destroy the human bodies they possess fairly quickly.

* The Egyptian god Horus runs into this problem in ''Film/{{Immortal}}'', as he can only successfully possess pure humans unaltered by genetic modification. As most of the humans in 2095 New York are augmented in some way, they eventually die after he takes over their bodies. Nikopol is suitable as a host body precisely because he's still unaltered, having spent time in a cryo-prison for several decades.
