* Speaking of ''Franchise/PowerRangers,'' there's always Ivan Ooze taking over Hornitor in the final battle of [[Film/MightyMorphinPowerRangers the movie]], although in that case the possess-e wasn't exactly sentient to begin with. After the Ninjazords destroy [[ScaryScorpions Scorpitron]], one of Ooze's two mechs, he merges with the remaining one.

The next thing that the fallen minions see is their boss' face looming above them. He informs them that [[YouHaveFailedMe they have failed]], and they panic and retreat -- and suddenly stand up with MindControlEyes. Healed to full and [[TurnsRed twice as strong]], they rush at the heroes again, but something's wrong. The villain is [[DemonicPossession possessing them]] to finish the job.e

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'': During the FinalBattle, [[EvilSorcerer Gravemoss]] -- who had been slowly [[TheCorruption influenced and corrupted]] by the [[TomeOfEldritchLore Darkhold]] throughout the story -- gets briefly possessed by the book's author, [[EldritchAbomination Cthon]]. This doesn't last long, however, before [[spoiler: the Phoenix]] (pulling a heroic version of this on Harry) cuts the link between the two of them. [[spoiler: But then, during his subsequent duel with Doctor Strange, he becomes so desperate that he digs deeper into the book's power, allowing Cthon to take full control.]]

* DivinityDragonCommander: Just as the half-dragon emperor has finally assassinated his insane siblings, his head engineer screws him over and takes over [[spoiler:ENTIRE CONTINENTS. It's up to the player to hunt down and butcher the mind-controlled puppets of Corvus before his clone-mind selves conquer everything.]] Strangely, he's still on board the same airship as the emperor after attempting this usurp, and doesn't die until the airship is decommissioned.

* For a given value of "villain", the Engineer in VideoGame/TeamFortress2 can do this to his sentry gun if he has a Wrangler, giving his sentry infinite range, a defensive shield and doubled fire rate. Considering sentries are already quite powerful, a well entrenched Engie with a Wrangler can become an enormous pain if the opposing team doesn't have good spies.

** In ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3D'', WordOfGod states that this is how [[spoiler: Young Xehanort is able to ignore the effects of Mickey's [[TimeStandsStill Stopza]] and fight Riku; his older self (Who wasn't present to be affected by the time freeze) taking control of him. Without this information, most would simply chalk it up to his nature as a TimeMaster.]]

* FanFic/MirrorsImage: While not exactly the villain of the story, Queen Chrysalis is capable of talking through her changelings, but she usually just uses this ability to upbraid Princess Celestia.

* In ''TheDresdenFiles'' novel ''Cold Days'', [[spoiler:Nemesis]] pulls this on [[spoiler:Cat Sith.]] Unusually, it actually makes the victim ''less'' effective because the victim was such a brutal CombatPragmatist who didn't believe in EvilGloating. It's what clues Harry into the fact: he realizes that if the real [[spoiler: Cat Sith]] had turned on him, it would have been with an instantly-lethal BackStab. When he gets double-crossed without getting killed, Harry figures out that [[spoiler: Cat Sith]] isn't there anymore.
