* ''Webcomic/AvasDemon'' downplays this by making the possession a RequiredSecondaryPower. Simply being possessed doesn't give Ava any powers, but performing a FusionDance with the titular demon does and said FusionDance is only possible through demonic possession.

* ComicBook/CaptainUniverse is all about this trope in the Franchise/MarvelUniverse. He is actually a semi-sentient cosmic force called The Unipower, whose main purpose was to maintain the barrier between Earth and another universe in place. It would grant powers to single individuals temporarily so they could fulfill specific missions. Though the Unipower doesn't really force the host to do anything, only tells him what he has to do. Presumably if you disobey, it'll just leave you.

* ComicBook/XMen has possibly the most famous example of this in the form of the Phoenix Force, which takes mortal hosts (usually a psychic SignificantGreenEyedRedhead) to do a specific job in either rejuvenating a dying world, protecting it or if it's stagnant, destroying it. Then She leaves. However, this all gets a bit muddy with the precise details of the relationship between Jean Grey and the Phoenix, and she tends to stick around with favoured hosts like Jean and her daughter Rachel. In any case, hosts are granted vast telepathic and telekinetic powers, which often manifest in the form of the Phoenix raptor, making each host a borderline RealityWarper. They're also effectively impossible to kill, since even if they can be killed, they'll just immediately come back.

* Kalinda in ''StarTrekNewFrontier'' has the ability to talk to and channel ghosts. In ''Treason'', her dead brother Si Cwan possesses her, aiding in the ''Excalibur'''s search for his and Robin's newborn son. While possessed, she gains all of his fighting prowess and intellect, while {{Squick}}ing Robin out (and Kalinda's other lover, Xyon). About the only person Cwan!Kally doesn't squick out is Tania Tobias, who's a little touched herself...and strikes up a relationship with Kalinda that lasts after the possession ends, to Xyon's utter dismay.

* After being briefly possessed by F'ryan (A swordmaster) to fight off a Weapon, Karigan retains some of his skills. Later volumes in the ''GreenRider'' series have her build on that base with more conventional training.

* In ''ComicBook/TheGoldenAge'', Captain Triumph was the result of Lance Gallant merging with the ghost of his brother Michael. However, he came to ''hate'' this, as Michael became an adrenaline junkie (the merge gave him the ability to feel again). Lance died fighting Robotman, ignoring the ghost's pleas to merge.
