[[MyGreatestFailure This deeply, DEEPLY]] [[GoMadFromTheRevelation traumatised]] [[OutlivingOnesOffspring her and Miyuki's dad Shigehide]]. So, Kozue hires Shiho to pose as a reinarnated Miyuki, since if Miyuki was reincarnated right after her murder, she'd be around Shiho's age; she believes that if Shiho "plays" the role of the new!Miyuki well enough, Shigehide will finally be able to let go of his suffer and start properly living again. [[spoiler: Not only does Kozue and Shiho's plan ''work'', but it eventually leads Shiho and Shigehide to ''find the SerialKiller who victimised Miyuki and other people'' and help to catch him.]]

* ''Webcomic/LeifAndThorn'' has a few types of reincarnation.
** Some people are "long-runners," with their full PastLifeMemories returning at a young age. At that point they're [[http://leifandthorn.com/comic/the-perennials-716/ legally considered adults]], for everything from trials to labor laws.
** Other people never remember their past lives, but can be identified because they draw the same [[CoolSword heartsword]]. Ceannis used to have a law that any time [[InItsHourOfNeed their founding hero reincarnated]] (as identified by heartsword), [[http://leifandthorn.com/comic/thorn-explains-leachtric/ she got to rule the country.]][[/folder]]

*** However, Uub is actually not unique in this area. This is how Hell works in Dragon Ball in general; evil people are sent to a personal IronicHell until their souls are cleansed of their evil and memories so they can be reborn as a new being. The only reason Freeza is still in Hell is because he's just that wicked and [[Determinator stubborn]].

One or more of the main characters is the reincarnation of someone from the past, and they are forced to live with the effects of their previous incarnation's life, loves and choices. A device seen in some {{Shoujo}} stories, often allowing for a "[[ReincarnationRomance destined love that survives death]]" plot element. Also used for a "duty that survives death" plot as well. Sometimes allows for TimeTravel to previous incarnations in the form of VisionsOfAnotherSelf.

*** Mantling also occurred with [[spoiler:Tiber Septim becoming Talos, the Ninth Divine, and managing to mantle Lorkhan, the god that created the world and humanity, and the ancient enemy of elven religion (the Mer were originally gods themselves, but were tricked by Lorkhan into giving up their divinity). The Thalmor, who drive much of the plot of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', want to unmake Talos as a means of destroying Lorkhan and all his creation]].

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 UsefulNotes/{{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.)
