* ''Series/TheOuterLimits1995'': In the episode "Free Spirit", a human test subject became a disembodied body-possessing spirit after his body was terminated in the middle of a mind transference experiment. Then he comes back for revenge against the scientists responsible for his death.
* ''Series/StargateAtlantis'': A group of rogue Asurans (killer androids made of nanites related to the Replicators in ''SG-1'') attempt to achieve [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence ascension]] by destroying their original bodies and becoming incorporeal, but because they aren't organic this simply left them in a transient state.

* ''Anime/VariableGeo'' centers around [[NebulousEvilOrganization The Jahana Group's]] attempt to resurrect their deceased leader, [[BigBad Miranda Jahana]], by finding a suitably powerful body for her spirit to inhabit. Which is why they manipulate [[spoiler: [[LivingMacGuffin Satomi]]]] into entering the VG Tournament.

* In ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'', a "Contractor" is a DifferentlyPoweredIndividual who has to [[PowerAtAPrice perform a Renumeration for every use of their power]]. The only exception are Contractors who have "fully paid off their contract." One of the only ways this is shown is when a character who has the ability [[GrandTheftMe to take over someone else's body]] has their original body destroyed while they're in someone else's.

* In the German pulp sci-fi magazine series ''PerryRhodan'', a man named Ernst Ellert was among the first generation of known "mutants" (people with psychic powers) and was a member of the first Mutant Corps; his power was the ability to separate his mind (or astral body, or soul, whatever you want to call it) from his physical body and travel through time and space along temporal strands. He could travel to the past, or could select the statistically most probable future among several potential futures and follow the strand to see where it led. He died a heroic death in 1972 in an accident with high voltage, but the shock of dying completely separated his astral body from his body and he was hurled through time and space. After a long odyssey (during which he learned that his astral body could enter and control the bodies of physical beings), he eventually managed to return to 21st century Earth. For a short time, he was even forced to "possess" his own preserved dead body, until the deteriorating state of the body put it beyond his powers. In the year 4013, Ellert was given a new material body, created by advanced alien technology out of billions of sentient nanomachines. The new body was humanoid, although Ellert's control over the nanites allowed him to transform his body into a cloud of nanomachines and solidify it again at will, i.e. if he wanted to walk through walls.

* Dr. Manhattan from ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'' had this as part of his backstory. He was completely torn apart at an atomic level due to a FreakLabAccident, but his consciousness remained and very gradually was able to piece together a body.
