In "Change your Mind" (S4E29), the antagonist possessed the 3 crystal gems, 2 diamonds, and another pearl has been. For the crystal gems and diamonds, the whole process is shown, with their color and individuality being lost, and is shot like a horror film.

A character is revealed to have been possessed the entire movie. It could be argued that this was an agreed upon arrangement, but he is definitely possessed in its most literal meaning. He has the other character’s face sticking out the back of his head and everything. I don’t know why people are selecting ‘No’ on this one, it absolutely happens and is a major plot point.

A ghost possesses a training dummy but I'm like 99% sure the dummy wasn't sentient before that?

kinda but also kinda not. characters get "possessed" by their selves from alternative universes, as this is how universe jumping is achieved. this does really disorient+disturb the characters who get taken over at points.

Repeats throughout the movie & is a main theme. [Spoiler] Wanda possesses alternate versions of herself to chase down Strange & co. Strange also possesses his corpse in a different universe (zombie-type effect). A lot of these include unnatural/uncanny movement, scenes of the possession taking place/ending & is frequent throughout the movie.

Several, most notably Rose (by lovecraftian horrors, and with some lucidity), Jade and Jane (by a major villain), and Jack in the B2 session (by another villain) (this is a particularly disturbing one, with gore, blood, and self-mutilation.) A puppet is also possessed by the main villain.

Episode 9 and 10. Debatable, honestly. It's uncertain but I thought it would be best to click yes just in case.

The most notable incident is probably the episode "Sock Opera", in which Dipper is possessed by the series villain for most of the day, while Dipper follows his body around as a ghost. The demon abandons this by the end of the episode, when Dipper's body is too tired to keep up. No permanent damage is done, though.

Under some conditions, the player character's body is taken over by an outside force by technological means, and the player must struggle to regain control before the character does something against their will. In some variations of this event, the character will shake and rapidly blink their eyes in an attempt to resist the takeover.
