** The Medium class' core mechanic is a daily seance by which they can invite an archetypal spirit into their bodies and draw on its abilities: the Champion augments weapons-based combat, the Archmage grants additional spellcasting, and so on. A spirit can also fudge certain dice rolls for its host in a pinch, at the cost of granting it extra influence over the Medium's actions.

* Seen in the ''WhateleyUniverse''; the mutant "avatar" trait is all ''about'' being able to host a spirit in the mutant's body and derive power from that union. It's not even all that uncommon--the school has quite a few examples, and one of the world's premier heroes is the host of the so-called "Champion Force", an amalgamation of ''multiple'' spirits collected by a predecessor.

Added DiffLines:

* Masako in ''Webcomic/BeneathTheClouds'' is a medium who allows herself to be possessed by angry ghosts as part of the exorcism ceremonies. While she's hosting a spirit, her eyes glow and she is capable of inhumanly fast reactions. As the ghosts are often angry, bitter and disorientated, it's more of a liability than a help, and the effect only lasts for a short time anyway.

* Played with in ''Webcomic/MobPsycho100''. [[spoiler:Ritsu gains his PsychicPowers when Dimple possesses him, but the powers were always his own. Dimple only lets him unlock and develop them, afterwards, Ritsu remains able to use PsychicPowers without him.]]

* In ObscurusLupa and {{Phelous}}' review of ''Witchcraft IX,'' the [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot ghost of a warlock]] possesses a HookerWithAHeartOfGold when she's being beaten up by her pimp. This doesn't give her magic or anything, yet allows her to beat the pimp up...somehow.

* In [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Literature/Prolecto Prolecto]], this is a big thing that happens to anyone possessed by Azazel. If combined with a Succubus transformation, they get even MORE powerful. The main host pretty much gets the SuperPowerLottery.

* ''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.
