* Though it's difficult to call it reincarnation, even if the self is 100% the product of the brain and after death there's nothing but [[CessationofExistence oblivion]], there still remains the possibility that in the future another brain (or equivalent) would generate another self. Needless to say, in this case you'd not remember absolutely anything of your past and you could be [[ParanoiaFuel anything but human, as there's no way to know when and/or where that would happen]]. In other words, even from a purely materialist perspective, the particles that make you up are reformed and will become part of another living thing.

* ''Film/WendyWuHomecomingWarrior'': Shen is confirmed to be one to one of Mei Song's original companions (her first teacher, the Dragon of Invincibility, in fact), and it's all but stated that Wendy is one to Mei herself. It also means that Wendy is the reincarnation of her great-grandmother, who was the previous Yin Warrior.

* Link and Zelda in every ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' game are the reincarnations of the original Link and Zelda from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword''. While Zelda is always reincarnated in her own bloodline and has [[PhysicalGod the blood of a goddess]], Link can be ''anyone'', though somehow he always looks similar to his predecessors. That said, some Links are related by blood. Link and Zelda are always reincarnated at about the same time and, because of the curse placed on the originals, inevitably draw Ganondorf or another evil force to attack Hyrule or a neighboring region. Thankfully, their reincarnations also wield the Triforce of Wisdom and Courage, so they are usually (but not always) strong enough to force the evil back. While their personalities can vary[[note]]For example, one Zelda can be a RaisedByDudes {{Tomboy}} [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker who travels the seas as a pirate]], while another can be an AdventurerArchaeologist with an InferioritySuperiorityComplex [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild that struggles with her powers]][[/note]], all Zeldas [[CaptainObvious can expected to display a lot of wisdom]], while all Links...well, what do you think?

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', the main quest revolves around the prophesied reincarnation of the ancient Chimeri/Dunmeri hero, Lord Indoril Nerevar. [[spoiler:The PlayerCharacter fits the traits required by the prophesy, [[MultipleChoiceChosen but so did many others before]]. The player character can wear Nerevar's Moon-And-Star ring, which is supposed to kill anyone who isn't Nerevar, but it is strongly implied that the player character might just be a convenient UnwittingPawn for [[OurGodsAreDifferent Azura]] to get her revenge on the [[PhysicalGod Tribunal]] for defying her thousands of years ago. Whether or not the player character truly ''IS'' the Nerevarine is [[TheUnreveal never made clear]]]]. Thanks to the ''Elder Scrolls'' series' act of "[[http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Mantling Mantling]]", the player character has [[spoiler:most likely ''become'' the Nerevarine. Mantling makes it possible to become one with another person or deity by, essentially, tricking the universe into thinking that you're that being, generally by filling their role closely enough. By undergoing the same trials and tribulations that the Nerevarine is supposed to do, you've filled his role and have become him.]]

In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', the series' lore, the [[CatFolk Khajiit]] are led by the Mane, the unofficial "head of state". According to Khajiit tradition, the Mane is one entity reborn in different bodies with the passage of time. Thus, ThereCanBeOnlyOne Mane, and historically, this has proven true as there has been no recorded instance of multiple Manes contending for power.

* Einhart Stratos of ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaViVid'' is the opposite gender reincarnation of Hegemon Klaus Ingvalt, being born with his silver hair, heterochromia, pieces of his memories, and his will to establish hegemony over all lands and protect his domain. The last one's a bit of a problem for her since she's now [[TheRemnant living in a peaceful era where there's no country to defend]].

* Ronnie Lane's ''"Stone"'' aka ''"Evolution"'' tells of a different birth (first person) in each verse.
* The song Gonzo sings in TheMuppetMovie, ''"I'm Going To Go Back There Someday"'' can be interpreted as being about reincarnation.

Can be confused with and is often incorrectly interchanged in fiction with the concept of ''[[FirstLawOfResurrection resurrection]]'': A dead person comes back from the dead in the '''same''' body (perhaps complete with a MortalWoundReveal) and their ''original'' spirit. (A specialty of {{Jesus}} in UsefulNotes/{{Christianity}}.) Reincarnation's formal definition is the return to the land of the living with the '''same''' spirit but often in a ''different form'' than the same body you left behind (as a man rather than a woman, a flea, a sunflower...whatever.) That's the principle found in Eastern philosophy, such as {{Buddhism}}. And even then, in RealLife it gets complicated; in Eastern thought, just because one's "pattern" shows up again does not necessarily mean it's "you." (Although many Easterners do believe that.)
