* The trope image displays SCORPIO from ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic.'' She is a highly advanced droid that ''[[BerserkButton loathes]]'' being labelled as such. Several instances have her appearing in human form via holographic technology. It's a point of interest that she chooses to look like this freed from the confines of her physical body, whether or not this is a default display, a disguise she merely favours or that it hints at a [[PinocchioSyndrome deeper longing]] to be [[BecomeARealBoy more than a machine]] is still up for debate.

* Non- SpiritWorld or VR example: This is precisely how magical healing in TheCosmere works. You are rebuilt back to your "cognitive ideal." This can be beneficial (e.g. you've never accepted or internalized a lost limb, so it starts to grow back as soon as you get some {{Mana}}) or harmful (e.g. your SlaveBrand doesn't heal because you've internalized the baggage that comes with it, and alterations heal away because they're not part of the template).

* In ''Videogame/GhostTrick'', [[spoiler:a ghost's appearance depends on what they believe they are. This leads to a gag where a character's ghost momentarily took the wrong appearance, as well as the twist that the main character isn't who the player expects.]]
