* Lunar Exalted from ''{{Exalted}}'' can take the form of any creature whose heart's blood they've tasted.
* Skin-Changers from {{GURPS}} Monster Hunters are EmbodiedSpirits who can shapeshift into any animal (including humans) by wearing their skin. Unlike the Film/MenInBlack example, Skin-Changers are clever enough to preserve the skins, and save them in jars when they're not being worn.

* The D'Anjainy in ''AnimaBeyondFantasy'' play this overlapping with {{FaceStealer}}s, as they skin the face of the person who want to copy and place it over theirs to look as the previous owner of that face -the game says nothing about what happens to the unfortunate victim, by the way.-

* A two-part episode on {{Sliders}} involved the logistics behind moving a select portion of the population before their Earth is destroyed. It turns out that the man in charge has to ingest brain tissue from compatible donors due to treat a fungal brain infection. Injecting the tissue causes him to temporarily morph into the person while the donor goes into a coma. The list of people he handpicks to move on to the new world are all compatible; he intends to use them all to stay alive.

** Leviathans don't ''need'' to eat you to take your appearance. All they need to do is touch you and they can absorb your DNA, allowing them to [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshift into a perfect copy of you]]. However, as {{Extreme Omnivore}}s with limitless appetites, if one actually bothered to get close enough to touch you, it's almost certainly going to eat you.

* In the music video for [[FosterThePeopleBest Friend]] a supermodel devours other supermodels whole and alive and so she can take on desired aspects of their appearance and further her career. Over the course of the video she eats a woman for her BeautyMark, another so she can have her [[ShesGotLegs legs]] among others. However over time with all the clashing body proportions she starts to look less like a beautiful woman and more like a [[BodyHorror spindly, freakishly tall, disproportioned alien.]] By the video's end she winds up barfing up the dress of a woman she had eaten, chokes on it, loses her newly acquired features, and dies on the catwalk.

* ''VideoGame/{{Kirby}}'' is able to [[PowerCopying assimilate the special abilities]] of many of his enemies by swallowing them. Fan works often exaggerate this to Kirby assuming the characteristics of anyone ''and/or anything'' he eats -- notably, this is the RunningGag of ''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily''.
