** The final chapters of the Manga bring this UpToEleven with the design of the Awakened Ones. [[spoiler: Cassandra's awakened form looks like a giant female human body who's lying on its back and is sustained by many small tentacles and instead of a normal head has a seemingly endlessly regenerating series of giant tentacles with Cassandra's monstrous face at the end of each, and between the breasts of the giant torso lies the upper half of Cassandra's human body who's controlling the whole crazy structure. Later on another Awakened One, this time temporarily allied with the Claymores to fight both Cassandra and Priscilla, takes the form of a normal looking human lady who suddenly splits in two, tentacles coming out of her body and a huge VaginaDentata growing at her bottom. And how forget Priscilla's final form? In the final fight she loses control of her regenerating abilities and thus random masses of limbs, legs, arms and torsos all start bursting out of her body and her open wounds. [[TheDeterminator By this point she's far too obsessed by destroying Teresa to care though]]]].

** It's actually much more horrible than described here, because Tetsuo, while his body is growing horribly, actually ''crushes'' his girlfriend inside himself while screaming for somebody to save her. That detail alone can keep you from sleeping for many nights after watching this movie.
*** Even more horrible, due to his psychic powers being completely out of control, not only was his body crushing her, he was psychically linked with her at the time. So he felt her pain while he was inadvertently killing her.
*** What makes it '''even worse''' is that in all honesty, she had no real reason to even be there. It's like her death was written in as a cheap attempt to add more horror.

* When the [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Jabberwock]] takes over Ryo's body in ''{{Project ARMS}}'', the nanites across Ryo's body spread out and cover his entire body as a normal teenager is turned into a hulking engine of rage and destruction. The BodyHorror can clearly be seen in Ryo's first full transformation, where his ''face'' is absorbed into the Jabberwock's ''chest''.

** A similar thing happens in a later chapter to [[spoiler:a woman who hires Fran to [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor give her immortality]]]], and Fran [[GoneHorriblyRight does exactly that]], [[spoiler:converting her into the one type of cell that isn't pre-programmed to die: cancer cells]].
*** This wasn't what Fran ''intended''. It was a potential side effect Fran was attempting to fix, but she [[spoiler: tried to kill Fran, then stole and used the treatment before Fran could fix this problem.]] The series is ''big'' on LaserGuidedKarma.

* The transformation sequences in ''XamdLostMemories'' can be quite gruesome if you're not prepared, including a scene where the protagonist is enveloped by what looks like white paint sprouting from his oversized arm, and ends up turning into [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/5/58/Wiki_Xamdo_form.jpg this]]. The storyboards for this sequence are even more off-putting.

* ''{{Devilman}}'': Any creature you can find in this series counts, including the main character. Amorphous slimes fulls with eyes, fangs and tentacles and oozing vile fluids are the less nightmarish thing you will find.

** The One-Eyed Owl takes things up a notch, becoming near Lovecraftian compared to normal ghouls. It can sprout tentacles that not only possess tiny, childlike hands that grasp randomly at things......but gaping mouths that ''carry on conversations'' with each other. It explains to another Ghoul that a kagune is limited only by the user's imagination and intelligence, so truly brilliant individuals are capable of intricate and horrifying creations. The Owl is one of the most intelligent and creative characters in the series, allowing for all manner of nightmares spawned from its body.
** Noro, a towering and silent Ghoul considered a monster by other Ghouls. His kagune is a writhing mass of tentacles with a LampreyMouth at the end, that devour prey alive. He's regularly torn to pieces in battle, and simply knits himself back together. When sufficiently damaged, he becomes an enormous mass of tentacles sprouting from a twitching lower body and tries to eat everything around him. But then it gets worse, with the revelation that [[spoiler: he's a rotting, mummified body kept animated by Eto's powers]].

* ''SoulEater'' brings us Chrona, who has a living being named Ragnarok mixed in with [[AmbiguousGender his/her]] blood who usually appears by making the top half of his body sprout out of Chrona's back. Ragnarok takes many forms over the course of the series, starting out as a musclebound humanoid figure and later becoming a dragon, a chibi version of his first form, and [[spoiler:currently a form which has at least three arms.]]

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'''s Jinchuriki forms: tails one through to three create a chakra shroud around him (which is controlled by the fox and not him). Tails four and five turns the chakra a reddish black, and Jiriya reveals this is caused by his skin ripping away like paper while huge globs blood come out of him and his skin turns to ash. The six-tailed form adds a giant skeleton around him, and the eight-tailed form creates muscle tissue around the skeleton and recreates the fox's face. What's worse is that while this is going on Naruto's HealingFactor means that he is in such constant agony that his mind shuts down and the Fox takes over completely. We never find out what happens if he hits the full nine tails aside from he will die an agonizing death and will be sealed inside the Fox. [[spoiler: Now not an issue since Naruto has Nine-Tailed Chakra Mode and Biju Mode.]]
** Sakon and Ukon have the power to ''merge with the body of anyone they touch'', which took the form of having their head stick out of Kiba ''shoulder'' like a tumor and mention it can also break off parts of their enemies bodies.
** The Kimimaro battle. Anyone who pulls out his own bones to fight is a shoo-in for this trope. The fact that his bones seem to regrow and the things he pulls out of himself are horribly misshapen makes it worse. Your spine should not be used a a whip.
** Orochimaru's true form; [[spoiler: A white snake with snakes for scales who steals people's bodies]]
*** Hell, most of Orochimaru's abilities even ''before'' his final form. From that tongue to throwing up snakes and swords and reattaching his sliced in half body with snakes... yeah, he basically is this trope.
** Kabuto takes [[spoiler: bits of Orochimaru's DNA and fuses it with his own]] to find out if he's capable of [[spoiler:resisting its growth]]. It was bad enough in the [[http://read.mangashare.com/Naruto/chapter-356/page017.html beginning]], but now he even has a ''snake'' growing out from ''his stomach''. [[spoiler: And now he can use Sakon and Ukon's Kekkei Genkai to grow a mindless clone of everyone's DNA he has out of his stomach, from all the members of the Sound Four to Orochimaru himself!]]
** [[spoiler: Danzo]]'s arm has ten Sharingan eyes embedded inside of it.
*** It gets worse when [[spoiler:Danzo's chakra gets exhausted. The Senju cells in his shoulder go out of control and start to grow rapidly into a gigantic tree-tumor on his body. Danzo has to ditch the whole arm to escape it safely.]]
** Itachi's genjutsu causes Naruto, among some other things, to see Sakura's head growing from his stomach, Kakashi's from his shoulder, half of his face and body turned into Second State Sasuke, and Gaara's eye and tattoo on his hand.
** Sasuke's second-stage of the curse mark has [[PowerGivesYouWings bat wings]] which also looks like ''webbed hands'' '''growing out of his back'''.
