Compare to: SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute (which introduces a totally new character much like the old one), TheOtherDarrin (where the actor is replaced ''without'' an in-universe explanation), and LegacyCharacter (which introduces a different character to the "title" of the previous character). See also DyingToBeReplaced (which this can consist of if, like in the trope naming example, the process analogises to the death of the original) and ReplacementScrappy, which can be a reaction. For tropes where one a character changes because of a transformation, see MidSeasonUpgrade, EvolutionPowerUp, and PlotRelevantAgeUp.

* In the radio adaptation of ''Literature/HowTheMarquisGotHisCoatBack'', the Marquis (played by Patterson Joseph instead of David Harewood from the radio adaptation of ''Literature/{{Neverwhere}}'') explains to Richard that he sounds different as a side-effect of having his throat cut. He also mentions he sounds like his younger self, a reference to Joseph playing the Marquis in the TV version.

* ''Series/DueSouth'' is a rare non-scifi example of this trope: after being UnCancelled for a third season, it transpired that David Marciano, who played Raymond Vecchio, had already relocated with his family and been hired for a new role and so wasn't able to rejoin the show. This being a BuddyCopShow between Marciano and Paul Gross's character Fraser, they were left with something of a problem, but came up with a unique twist. Marciano was replaced by the utterly dissimilar Callum Keith Rennie... and only Fraser, who's just come back from vacation, appears to notice that his partner has become a completely different person. He spends the entire first episode believing he's the OnlySaneMan while "Vecchio" and all their co-workers, and even Vecchio's own family, profess ignorance to anything unusual. [[spoiler:His boss eventually sets him straight: the real Ray Vecchio has been sent deep undercover in the mob due to his [[IdenticalStranger uncanny resemblance]] to a [[NeverFoundTheBody presumably deceased]] boss whose gang he's infiltrating. The new Ray is a cop with the same first name and no family ties following a recent divorce, who's been brought in to take his place, so that if anyone gets suspicious and goes looking they'll find a Ray Vecchio active within the Chicago PD.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'', Leonardo spends the time between the season two finale and season three premier in a coma. Once he wakes up, his voice actor is different (Creator/SethGreen instead of Dominic Catrambone, who himself was a temporary replacement for Jason Briggs). Casey comments on his voice being different and Donatello says it's a result of his injuries.
* The ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'' episode "Universe Vs. Tennyson" establishes that, Celestialsapiens, the source species of Alien X and a species of {{Reality Warper}}s, as the cause of the various redesigns and TheOtherDarrins throughout [[Franchise/{{Ben 10}} franchise]], with Azmuth cited as an example (going from [[Series/{{CSI}} Robert David Hall]] in [[WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}} the original series]] and ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10DestroyAllAliens Destroy All Aliens]]'', to Creator/JeffBennett doing an Creator/ReneAuberjonois impression in the ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10Alien Force]]''/''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien Ultimate Alien]]'' era, to Auberjonois himself voicing Azmuth in ''Omniverse'').

** [[spoiler:Not entirely true because the given and presumably legal first name of the second "Ray" isn't Ray. It's Stanley. His full name is Stanley Raymond Kowalski. He just says that he goes by Ray as his first name, instead of using Stanley. He never says he legally changed his first name to Ray. But Raymond, or Raimondo, the Italian version, is Ray Vecchio's actual first name.]]

* The Bouncing Beatnik of ''ComicBook/AstroCity'' also works like this, a new incarnation manifesting whenever a counterculture trend of sufficient emotional strength comes along - ragtime, jazz, beatniks, hippies - then eventually fading away. Different incarnations can be different genders and appear as different races (although they're not actually human).

* In the Japanese dub of ''Manga/{{Inuyasha}}'', [[BigBad Naraku]] was originally voiced by Hiroshi Yanaka in his early appearances. At the end of the anime's first season he takes over the body of a prince named Kagewaki, upon doing so he is voiced by Creator/ToshiyukiMorikawa for the rest of the series' run.

* This is not a comicbook trope (to say the least), but this is how Marvel's Comicbook/{{Loki}} works since he erased his name from Hela's books some years ago. Thanks to this move Loki has no afterlife basically making death as permanent as it's even possible in a comicbook for the character. ''A'' Loki will come back sooner or later if the current happened to die... just won't be the same person (changed design, personality etc.).
