* At one point of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''/''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' crossover ''Fanfic/TheVampireOfSteel'', Buffy magically possesses Kara's body to fight [[BigBad Zol-Am]].
--><Kara?>\\
<Yes, Buffy?>\\
<We’re finished.>\\
<Good. I want my body back.>\\
<With pleasure. But I gotta tell you, you’ve got a really great setup here. Do you think, maybe, sometime...>\\
<BUFFY.>\\
<All right, all right.>



* ''Literature/GoodOmens'': Mistaken for a demon, the angel Aziraphale is exorcised (sort of) and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny bounces from body to body]] as he tries to make his way back to England -- first ending up in the body of an Aboriginal Australian boy, then a Haitian witch doctor, then [[EagleLand an American televangelist]], and, finally, to Madame Tracy, a medium (and Painted Jezebel). They have a cup of tea and calmly discuss the situation while Aziraphale is still in Madame Tracy's head.

* As seen in the image above, Flash (Barry Allen) and Kid Flash (Wally West I) accidentally merge their molecules when they run into each other in front of The Turtle's centrifugal booster, essentially sharing a body. They soon repeat this with Jay Garrick by all three merging their atoms together as seen [[http://readcomiconline.to/Comic/DC-Special-Series/Issue-11?id=62907 here]].

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.

SymbioticPossession. TruthInTelevision for many people with multiple personalities who feel this or SplitPersonalityTeam describe their situation more clearly than the usual horror-show trope.

* Common feature in some religions, specifically non-Christian faiths that do not automatically attribute mediumship or the existence of a PhysicalGod, among other things, to demonic possession. Arguably, in a case of {{irony}} and of its more fundamentalist partisans not doing the research, Christianity ''itself'' possibly even provided an example with its claim that {{Jesus}} is {{God}} incarnate. Therefore, Jesus would have been a case of SharingABody [[note]]remember, faith is up to interpretation. Please don't natter here.[[/note]] according to it - as would Christians claiming to have accepted him into their hearts.
** Prophets/apostles as well, who are believed to be "inspired" by God when writing the Bible. The rule is that it's either God acting within a person, or something else, and if it's something else, it's usually evil.

* In the MagicalGirl CrisisCrossover ''FanFic/ShatteredSkies'', [[Franchise/SailorMoon Rei Hino's]] manga and 90s anime counterparts become [[FusionDance fused together]], and the resulting fusion has elements of both personalities. Said fusion is also unstable, and it takes Rei's concentrated effort to keep from losing control and [[CessationOfExistence ceasing to exist]].

* ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'': [[spoiler:At one point in the series, protagonist Shinnosuke is seemingly killed, but an examination reveals that his sentient TransformationTrinket is acting as a form of life support. His allies figure out a way to "jump-start" his body, bringing Shinnosuke back to life...and as a consequence of the unusual circumstances at play, Mr. Belt can borrow his body temporarily. Despite the fact that he's been stuck as a talking belt for the last several years (and has expressed regret over the fact that he can't enjoy things like food anymore), Krim never abuses this power, only using it to help Shinnosuke in battle.]]
