** In ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E11TheCrimsonHorror The Crimson Horror]]'', there's a series of corpses that turn up petrified and bright red. Turns out, it's [[spoiler:caused by a poison secreted by an prehistoric parasite, which a crazy old lady has been letting latch onto her chest in a nightmarish symbiotic relationship.]] This all goes up a notch in the horror department when [[spoiler:it turns out that the ''Doctor'' underwent the process some time prior and, thanks to his Time Lord biology, ended up alive, red, and half-petrified. When he's discovered, he's only able to gasp horribly and shuffle around like a zombie.]] And there's also the matter of poor Ada and her incredibly scarred, raw face [[spoiler:which was also caused by the venom.]]

In her first few moments on-screen, Saibra demonstrates how unpleasant this power can be when she starts to imitate the memory worm she's touching.

** In Volume Four, Sylar steals the power of VoluntaryShapeshifting, but finds out he got more than he bargained for when this latest powers combines with another superpower he picked up earlier: psychometry or the ability to read psychic imprints of people (like their memories) from objects they have touched. He finds himself involuntarily shapeshifting in his sleep or under stress, even [[spoiler:turning into the likeness of his own, dead mother and holding a whole split personality dialogue with himself]].

* ''Series/BigBadBeetleborgs'': The episode "Buggin Out" is a satire of David Cronenberg's remake of ''TheFly''. Flabber brings a picture of a teleportation device to life, tests it, and a bug gets in the machine (a gnat-like monster named Kombat Gnat who has MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily and the ability to shrink). Flabber slowly changes into the bug thing just like Jeff Goldblum in the movie. First he starts off with CuteLittleFangs, then develops antennae, then [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily a whole row of razor sharp teeth]] followed by a more bug-like torso and lobster-like claws for hands. He then ''bursts'' to reveal the gnat-like monster he's become. What's worse is that the kids have to fight him in order to turn him back to his normal happy phasm self.

* ''Series/KidsInTheHall'': PlayedForLaughs in one sketch in which Kevin [=McDonald=]'s character grows a beard, then gets very attached to his new facial hair. The beard ends up taking over his body and forcing him to do all kinds of nefarious things.

* ''Series/BeingHuman'': One of the main characters is a werewolf, and his transformation is lovingly described in the opening narration of Episode 2: during the process, he actually has a heart attack, and liver and kidney failure, as his internal organs change; and he eventually becomes unable to even scream as his vocal cords tear. As the narrator points out, while any other human would quickly die of shock, the werewolf is somehow kept alive and conscious for the whole thing. This eventually leads to [[spoiler: his death, when he deliberately forces himself to transform without the trigger of a full moon, in order to fight the vampires who've kidnapped his daughter. Unfortunately, as a result, he only partially transformed and got stuck midway through the process. The normal accelerated-healing that would normally fix the major internal organ failure simply never kicks in]].
