Could someone add specifics to the Rifts entry under tabletop games? It doesn\'t name any examples, just states that there\'s several.

If the parasite infests an inanimate object rather than a living creature, does that count as this trope or something else? It's kinda like the "kill host and puppet their corpse" variant, only instead of killing anything they find a host that's either already dead or was never alive to begin with.

The section on toxoplasmosis is overly long and full of bullshit, but for the most part I will leave it alone. I am, however, deleting this part:

Really? We need a freaking parasite to think something with big eyes, visible pupils, a small nose, a small mouth and a high-pitched voice is cute? I can totally understand if somebody doesn't like cats, but this is ridiculous. Oh, and about cats being worshipped in Ancient Egypt;

Scroll to the last point.
