* 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.

** 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.]]

** ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'' has this almost as much as the original series. First Yuya and Yuto, then Yuri and Yugo. By the finale, [[spoiler: Yuya, Yuri, Yugo and Yuto share one body. This also applies to Yuzu, Selena, Rin and Ruri.]]

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
