* ''Film/HardcoreHenry'': Jimmy has a multitude of bodies he can switch between, to accomodate the fact that [[spoiler:he himself is wheelchair-bound]].


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/AncillaryJustice'', Radch's [=AIs=] have hundred, is not thousands of "corpse soldiers", which are basically lobotomized humans that [=AIs=] can hop in and control - usually, they do so with many at once.

* This is a central component of ''{{GURPS}}: TranshumanSpace''. People, especially [=AIs=], rent (rarely purchase) cybershells designed for their environment or the job they're doing at the moment.
* Occasionally used in ''EclipsePhase'', though full BrainUploading is just as common.
* ''{{Exalted}}'' gives us the [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot Alchemicals]], whose bodies become too small for them as their [[PowerLevel Essence score]] increases and must make the leap to first [[GiantRobot Colossi]] and then [[GeniusLoci Metropoli/Patropoli]]. As there are times when they need to interact with the populace, however, they have access to Charms that allow them to produce a human-sized version of themselves.

* In BusouRenkin, one of the power's of Captain baravo's Silver skin is that he can move it and use it as a second body (which he often does while wearing another one with his second kakugane). [[spoiler: However, it can't be too remote, as he has to have line-of-sight to the action to make it work.]]

* In ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', [[WhamEpisode it's revealed that]] becoming a Magical Girl means [[spoiler: having your soul removed and placed inside a gem, which becomes your ''real'' body. Your original becomes this, little more than a corpse that you can sense through and remotely control from a distance of up to 100 meters]].

** Similarly, in an "alternate timeline" story, Cloud City's City Central Computer is able to use multiple robot bodies as avatars and switch between them at need, such as when the computer deliberately provokes some stormtroopers into destroying its current robot body (the computer is allowed to resist violence) instead of simply ordering the computer to shut itself down (the computer would have had to obey the order). The computer simply switches to a new robot body.

* ''TabletopGame/HcSvntDracones'' has both cybernetic and biotech versions. The biological version is a bit more dangerous though as they're somewhat smart, and maybe a little vindictive.

* In one ''{{Zot}}'' story, cyborg supervillain Dekko seems to accidentally kill himself while foolishly playing with Zot's raygun. Zot doesn't buy it for a second -- he ''knew'' that gun was out of juice. He theorizes that Dekko used a remote-controlled robot to fake his death for some reason, and is proven right when they meet again later on.
