* In ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'', [[spoiler:Touma's body]] contains... something ''that is more powerful than a guy who was more powerful than God''. Touma's right hand, [[AntiMagic Imagine]] [[PowerNullifier Breaker]] normally keeps it in check. It escaped a few times, whenever [[spoiler:an enemy severed Touma's hand, though Touma is able to reabsorb it through force of will and then regrow his arm]].

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series backstory, before recorded history, Jyggalag, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[ControlFreak Order]], grew powerful. The other ([[OrderVersusChaos chaotic-leaning]]) Daedric Princes grew fearful and jealous of his growing power, so they came together and [[IronicHell cursed him]] into [[BecameTheirOwnAntithesis becoming his own antithesis]] - Sheogorath, the Daedric Prince of [[MadGod Madness]]. However, at the end of every Era, Jyggalag is allowed to return to his true form in an [[EternalRecurrence event known as the Greymarch]]. During this time, he retakes and destroys the Shivering Isles (Sheogorath's and formerly his own [[EldritchLocation Daedric realm]]), only to return to the form of Sheogorath at the end. The main plot of the ''Shivering Isles'' expansion to ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' is Jyggalag attempting to break this ViciousCycle once and for all. [[spoiler:He succeeds in a LiteralSplitPersonalities fashion, freeing himself by [[AGodIsYou passing the mantle]] of Sheogorath onto the [[PlayerCharacter Champion of Cyrodiil]]]].

* In ''Videogame/YuGiOhReshefOfDestruction'', this is subverted. Tristan is believed to be trapped in a Monkey Robot by Kaiba or Reshef, but he is just absent, and the weak Monkey Robot is coincidentally as weak as Tristan.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' gives us a couple of good examples in the same season:
** "Human Nature" and "Family of Blood" gives us John Smith, a mild-mannered Englishman who teaches at a boy's school and clumsily works to win over the affections of the school nurse while keeping a diary of the various strange things he sees in his dreams. What he doesn't know is that those dreams are the memories of The Doctor, who used a special watch to seal himself away and transform his body into that of a human in order to hide from pursuers. When he learns this, and also that he needs to turn back into The Doctor to prevent the aliens from destroying the school and the surrounding town, he's heartbroken and terrified.
** "Utopia" gave us a similar example, [[spoiler: Doctor Yana]], who in this case is unwittingly [[spoiler: The Master.]]

* [[spoiler:Angleton]] is a willing, self-aware case of this, as revealed in the third ''[[Literature/TheLaundrySeries Laundry Series]]'' book, ''The Fuller Memorandum''. [[spoiler:Bob Howard]] does this to ''himself'' to avoid being possessed by something worse.

* Listing ''Manga/FairyTail'' as a trope here is a ridiculously major spoiler in and of itself - but here's the idea anyway: [[spoiler: The first-generation dragon-slayers ''contain'' the dragons that disappeared]]!

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': The Jinchriki are people who have tailed demons sealed inside them. They include the title character, Naruto, Gaara of the Desert, and Killer Bee (who contain the Nine-Tailed Fox, the One-Tailed Shukaku, and the Eight-Tailed Ox, respectively). Removing the tailed beast typically kills the host within minutes after the fact, and if the host dies with the beast still sealed inside it then it can take the beast some time to reform. As a result, the beasts grant their hosts supernatural power both to avoid pseudo-death and to weaken the seal. It's worth noting that being sealed in a human makes them ''more'' dangerous. Most Bijuu (Tailed Beast(s)) simply avoid humans and, due to their size and power, have little need for strategy. Jinchūriki can access their power and utilize years of training to focus it more effectively. Though, as the Eight-Tails and Nine-Tails have shown, they're quite capable of ''learning'' to use tactics. [[spoiler:And of acting like tag-team partners with their Jinchriki.]]
