* ''MagicTheGathering'' has several cards that evoke body horror, but one that immediately comes to mind is [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=97076 Riot Spikes]], an aura that gives the enchanted creature extra power, but reduced toughness. The flavor text reads "Most auramancers would have let the spikes hover just above the skin. Having the spikes rip through the skin from beneath was a touch added by Rakdos himself." ** Also, literally everything Yawgmoth does. Flesh and metal were ''not'' meant to go together that way.

** The original [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=35194 Mutilate]] is generally considered to be among the most horrifying card art of all time. Features include a woman's hands melding with her face and a man's neck elongating so far he begins to choke. Notably, when the card was rereleased, it was given completely new (And significantly less freakish) art.

** Exemplified by any non-artifact creature with the type "Horror". Just try and figure out what the hell it was before the Phyrexians got their hands on it (or them). Then there are the ones who have types you'd recognise, but look nothing like what they're supposed to be (Good example is [[http://magiccards.info/query?q=Blighted+Agent&v=card&s=cname Blighted Agent]]. That thing is supposed to be Human!?)

* Several cards in YuGiOh fit this trope quite nicely. For example there is the equip spell Ekibyo Drakmord, which represents a disease that weakens its host and slowly kills it, before spreading to another one. And there is also the art for the trap card Ultimate Offering, which shows a green, troll-like demon. Only his head is blood-red. And spawning from it is another, more diabolical demon, trailing what appears to be blood behind him. And the green one is still grinning...

** In terms of monster cards, there is one archetype that stands out: Worms. Worms are all LIGHT-attribute Reptile monsters. All of them are hideous, unearthly abomination, but some take this just a step too far. For example, Worm Solid is a melted mass of flesh, eyes, and teeth, shoved into a glass prism barely larger than in is.
