* 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.)

* ''XenaWarriorPrincess'' does this a lot, including a very funny episode where an obsessive Xena fan (played by Lawless) turned out to be the reincarnation of ''Joxer''.

* Many characters of the WhateleyUniverse. There's [[SquishyWizard Fey]] (past life Aunghadhail), [[PersonOfMassDestruction Tennyo]] (past life the Star Stalker) and ''all'' the [[Myth/GreekMythology New Olympians]] (past lives guess who).

* In ''TheWheelOfTime'' series, people who become legendary heroes are put on a special track of reincarnation, each life resembling the other and creating its own batch of legends. They hang out in the World of Dreams between lives and are forbidden from interacting with mortals. Everyone else is also reincarnated but are of less central importance to the pattern. The Dragon Reborn is unique in that everyone knows who he is a reincarnation of, when even those who have also lived past lives as great heroes cannot be identified and rarely discover this for themselves.

* In ''{{Franchise/Naruto}}'', the titular Character and [[TheRival Sasuke]] are revealed, somewhat [[IKnewIt unsurprisingly]], to be this of [[spoiler:the younger and elder sons, respectively, of the Sage of the Six Paths]]. Likewise, [[BigGood Hashirama]] and [[BigBad Madara]] were their previous incarnations. Reincarnation works a little differently in the Naruto-verse, though; it's the ''chakra patterns'' of [[spoiler:the Sage's sons]] that they inherited rather than their souls. Which is a very plot-revelant distinction [[spoiler:because it allows Hashirama and Madara to be revived as Edo Tensei zombies while Naruto and Sasuke are still alive]].

* ''Disney/{{Moana}}'': Gramma [[CoolOldLady Tala]] is the protagonist's grandma. When manta rays are swimming around her early in the movie she says: "When I die, I want to return as one of these... Or I chose the wrong tattoo." (showing her big tattoo of a manta ray covering her entire upper back). [[spoiler:Shortly after, she dies. During the journey Moana subsequently sets off on, manta rays appear at some important moments - suggesting Gramma Tala ''did'' reincarnate as a manta ray (encouraging her granddaughter on her journey along the way), and she ''did'' choose the right tattoo.]]

* ''Series/{{JAG}}'': In "Survivors", a Marine colonel believes his young son to be the reincarnation of a war buddy who died in TheVietnamWar. The ending is left ambiguous whether this is true or not.
