** Blofeld, arch-nemesis of Bond, is a villainous example. He was played by several actors over the years, with his changes of appearance being explained by plastic surgery. His portrayal in ''Film/{{Spectre}}'', played by [[spoiler: Creator/ChristophWaltz]], needs no such justification because there was a ContinuityReboot in ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006''.

** In the post-apocalyptic episodes, [[spoiler: Ambrose and Harding]] are played by different actors than normal, explaining that they now jump bodies ("getting a new suit") regularly and have multiple copies of each other. The same thing was done to [[spoiler:Rossum founder Clyde]] when Rossum was first starting.

* Used in ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' for [[spoiler: Elizabeth Weir. Previously played by Torri Higginson, Weir returned first as a faceless, fuzzy-voiced VirtualGhost, who then built herself a replicator body played by Michelle Morgan, who had in the previous season played F.R.A.N., a replicator [=McKay=] made. This allowed them to explain that to save time, Weir simply used the last template in the replicator machine, rather than try to remake her own appearance from scratch]].

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': Demons can possess different human bodies, so any demon character can be played by more than one actor. It happened with Lilith in Season 3 and 4, and then with [[spoiler: Ruby/"Kristy"]] between seasons 3 and 4.

** The angels don't just switch bodies, they also don't care about the sex of their physical vessels. Castiel's alternative vessel was a 12 year old girl, Lucifer appeared as a woman in both Sam and Nick's dreams, and [[spoiler: Raphael's second vessel was female]]. Fan theories vary on whether angels simply don't recognize gender in the way humans do or if they have a particular gender preference. But whatever you do, [[InternetBackdraft don't bring up the question of what this means for the hetero/homosexuality of ships involving angels]].

* In the Luna arc of ''Webcomic/QuantumVibe'' Dr. Seamus O'Murchadha undergoes a treatment to fix his screwed up metabolism from his last rejuvenation treatment. It also makes him look less like Creator/TomBaker with a weight problem and more like an eight-foot-tall Creator/WilliamHartnell. [[spoiler: A later arc showed that he's changed his appearance, with both rejuvenation and conventional plastic surgery, several times in the past.]]

* In ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', when Satoshi/Ash upgrades his Pokédex from Professor Orchid/Oak, he's told that it will also have a new voice, but only in the dub.
* 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, and upon doing so he is voiced by Creator/ToshiyukiMorikawa for the rest of the series' run.

* The ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'' episode "Universe Vs. Tennyson" establishes Celestialsapiens, the source species of Alien X and a species of {{Reality Warper}}s, as the cause of the various redesigns and {{The Other Darrin}}s throughout [[Franchise/{{Ben 10}} the 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/Ben10AlienForce Alien Force]]''/''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien Ultimate Alien]]'' era, to Auberjonois himself voicing Azmuth in ''Omniverse'').

* In ''TheWorstWitch'', Katy Allen replaced Felicity Jones as Ethel Hallow for Seasons 2 and 3, which was explained by Ethel having given herself a "witch-over". She undoes this spell for the fourth season(''Weirdsister College''), when Jones returns to the role.

* ''WebComic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' goes through several art changes that, because [[NoFourthWall the characters are aware they're in a comic strip]], inherently affects how the universe looks. Pointed out several times, such as when Elan remarks that Roy and Elan each got new accessories from the bandits [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0198.html before Haley points out that it's just an art upgrade]], and they're supposed to pretend they've always looked like that. So while the appearance of the characters (to us) doesn't change drastically, to the characters, it does.
