* Subverted in ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}''. Ray, forced to choose the ultimate destructive form for the evil entity Gozer, thinks of the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man, the most harmless thing he could imagine. It turns out to be far from harmless.

* ''TheDresdenFiles'' book ''Death Masks'' had Harry summoning a Loa to gain some information. Part of this ritual requires Harry giving the Loa a physical body to inhabit during the interview. The only usable vessel Harry has on hand, much to the Loa's dismay, is a Cabbage Patch Doll. Harry, naturally, thinks it's hilarious.
* In the ''MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' series, the mage Hairlock had his soul shifted into a puppet after he was cut in half during a battle. In this form he plots revenge against Tayschrenn.

* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', during the Frieza Saga, this is Captain Ginyu's ultimate fate. While using his body-swapping technique, a frog is thrown in his way, causing his own consciousness to become sealed within the frog (and the frog's mind to enter his body). Notably, he cannot swap bodies if he cannot [[CallingYourAttacks say the word]]. He could only take over Bulma's body because she made a device that allowed frogs to speak, and was changed back the same way as before, when frog-Bulma was thrown in the way of his body-swapping beam.

[[spoiler:In the ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' adaptation of ''[[Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF Resurrection F]]'', Ginyu figures out that he can activate it by writing the activation phrase "change" on the ground...but only so long as the victim can actually understand the alien script he uses.]]

* ''TabletopGame/{{Deadlands}}'' had Clovis the Devil Bunny, favored toy and bodyguard of little Lucifer Whateley. Lucifer is a meaner expy of Damien from ''{{Film/TheOmen}}'' and Clovis in its true form can wipe out parties of player characters without breaking a sweat.

* Played with in the chilling short story ''I Always Do What Teddy Says'' by Harry Harrison. In a future society, it is learned that my carefully shaping a child's psychological development ''from birth'', it can be made so that it is impossible for them to commit a crime like murder. This is done by giving the child a teddy bear that is carefully programmed to encourage good behavior and discourage criminal behavior. A group of scientists, wanting to effect political change, change the programming for the teddy bear for one of their sons, making it possible for him to commit murder. The child grows to adulthood, never suspecting anything but still having a feeling he is different from the rest of the people he knows. Finally, when he is in college, his father and his friends tell him exactly how he is different and give him a gun, wanting him to murder a political leader. What he proceeds to do is unexpected, terrifying, and heartbreaking. As is the last words of the story: "Teddy. Oh, Teddy. ''You should have told me.''"

* Tibbers, Annie's teddy from ''LeagueOfLegends'', is actually a demonic bear-thing that she found in its very dangerous homeland, ensorcelled to be her pet, and later bound into teddy-bear form. When needed, she can summon him forth in the form of a giant flaming grizzly.
