* The premise of ''Manga/HungryMarie''. Initially, the male protagonist Taiga is sacrificed to bring the dead French princess Marie-Thérèse Charlotte back to life. However, it's botched, resulting in Taiga and Marie sharing a body which transforms between their forms: Taiga controlling Marie's body and vice versa, making it a mix of this trope and FreakyFridayFlip. The main trigger is Marie's hunger: if she is hungry, she takes control as Taiga and when her hunger is fulfilled, Taiga is in charge.

* In ''Literature/{{Neogicia}}'', the protagonist wakes up from her BioAugmentation procedure with second level of consciousness that seems to have emerged to prevent sensory overload. In the second novel, it turns out to be an pre-existing entity that took advantage of the procedure to move in and can take control if needed.

May resemble SplitPersonality, but usually happens to characters who have already been well established separately and is almost always a temporary situation. If the characters battle for control of the body, this can share some features with EnemyWithin; the key difference is that EnemyWithin originates, ''within'' its host, while the character SharingABody does not. Sometimes TheMirrorShowsYourTrueSelf, revealing the extra driver. Compare TwoBeingsOneBody, when two beings are physically combined. Also compare SymbioticPossession.

--> '''[[Main/PortmanteauCoupleName Stevonnie]]''': Alright, two donuts! One for me, and one for...me...Are you okay? [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything We can stop if you want. No it's fine.]]
--> ''Later:''
--> '''Stevonnie:''' (sad) I wish you were here. If we were together, it would be okay. But we ''are'' together, and it's not. ''I'm alone''.

* Briefly in the end of season 1 of ''Anime/{{K}}'' - in order to defeat the [[spoiler: body-snatching Colorless King, Shiro goads him into trying to body-snatch him, and holds the Colorless King in his body - which is not his own, [[ItMakesSenseInContext by the way]] - trying to keep the Colorless King's consciousness buried. He then walks into the middle of a fight between the Red and Blue Kings, and has the Red King obliterate his body - luckily, Shiro is immortal, but the Colorless King is not, so it works.]]

* Early on in ''Devil Summoner: VideoGame/SoulHackers'', your friend Hitomi ends up getting [[DemonicPossession possessed]] by a demon named Nemissa. Unlike most cases of this in the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' series, Hitomi is fully conscious and able to talk while being possessed, and while the two argue a bunch early on, they eventually learn to cooperate outside of battle and can use the body together.

As a result of [[AWizardDidIt magic]], AppliedPhlebotinum, or just plain old plot demands, two characters end up sharing a body. Distinct from PuppeteerParasite and most cases of DemonicPossession in that the two characters are more or less equal partners here. (The one whose body it is may claim seniority, but enforcing it is a different matter).
