* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'': Big spoilers here, you've been warned. [[spoiler:an early-game reveal is the fact that not only is the player character operating a robot body, so is ''everyone else in New Los Angeles''. The robot bodies, called "mimeosomes", were intended to be long-lasting vessels/puppets for the humans minds just in case the search for a new habitable planet took longer than a lifetime. They near-perfectly mimic all human bodily functions (including eating and taste buds), which explains how the player character never realized something was up. The actual minds are stored in the Lifehold, which is why BLADE is so focused on finding it.]]

* 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.]]

** 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.
