* Happens in the ''{{Narnia}}'' book ''The Horse and His Boy'', with Shasta and Corin. It turns out, though, that [[spoiler:the "pauper" is actually the rightful prince, and the "prince" is just his few-minutes-younger identical twin. Said twin is ''happy'' to find this out because it means he doesn't have to bother with the responsibility of being king.]]

* ''[[Film/Garfield Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties]]'' has this as its main plot, with Garfield being mistaken for an identical cat (named Prince, amusingly enough) who has just inherited his eccentric owner's estate. Played with on Garfield's end: he doesn't have to ''act'' like Prince, he just has to ''look'' like him, and stick around long enough for the paperwork to be signed so that the estate doesn't fall into the hands of [[EvilChancellor Lord Dargis]].



* ''Film/ClassAct'' has a juvenile delinquent and a genius high school student end up swapping roles when their pictures are swopped on their school records.

* This was the premise of a reality show called ''A Walk in Your Shoes''. Two kids from different backgrounds got to take someone else's role for a day. For example, one episode had a girl who lived by the ocean switch with a boy from the Arizona desert. It even went into very serious topics like Muslims, AIDS, and teen parenting.

* ''TheHotChick'' has a bit of BackStory at the beginning explaining the amulet which causes the FreakyFridayFlip of the main story. In it, a princess is using the amulet to trade places with her slave. The princess's motive is to escape her ArrangedMarriage, so we can assume that the plan was for the switch to be permanent.
