* ''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.

* In the second season of ''Anime/FutureCardBuddyfight'', [[PlanetEater Yamigedo]] [[DemonicPossession possesses]] [[spoiler:Ikazuchi]] when the latter tries to re-seal it following a HeelFaceTurn.

* In ''TheDresdenFiles'' novel ''Cold Days'', [[spoiler:Nemesis]] pulls this on [[spoiler:Cat Sith.]] Unusually, it actually makes the victim ''less'' effective.

* In ''TheDresdenFiles'' novel ''Cold Days'', [[spoiler:Nemesis]] pulls this on [[spoiler:Cat Sith.]] Unusually, it actually makes the victim ''less'' effective.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.

* In the Battle-City arc of ''Anime/YuGiOh'', every time one of Marik's minions (the Rare Hunters) [[YouHaveFailedMe was defeated]], the symbol of the millennium items (the Eye of Wadjet) appears on their forehead, and they start talking in a notably different voice as Marik is now controlling them through his Millennium Rod, having [[NeverSayDie sent their minds to the Shadow Realm]] (though this isn't a thing in the original). Almost always preceded by "Master! I'm sorry! Please don't -- *evil cackle commences as Marik takes over*"

** This happened to Carly and Bommer in ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds''; after becoming Dark Signers, both realized they had been had, and wanted to forfeit; [[ResignationsNotAccepted that didn't sit well with their Earthbound God patrons]], who took full control of them and forced them to finish the duels. (But lost anyway, in Carly's case due in part to her FightingFromTheInside.)

* The second ''{{Overlord}}'' game requires you to do this to complete a few areas. Most of these sequences are simply a matter of your minions entering an area that is to small for you in order to remove and obstruction and let you in, but there are a couple of longer sequences.
