A Tribe Swap is when the remaining players in a season are completely reshuffled into two or more tribes. Tribe switches can occur in a variety of ways. This is a very common and recurring twist in Kolby's Survivor Series. It can be found in almost every online series as well as the original TV series.
- Japan: The first tribe swap was in the original season, swapping the two tribes into two tribes of four by random draw. The tribes were also each given a new Hidden Immunity Idol and a restocked idol board.
|New Azumi Tribe|
|New Hayato Tribe|
- Belize: After two Tribal Council's in the third season things were reshuffled when the two tribes Kriol & Garinagu swapped by random draw into two tribes of seven.
