* The Badass Psycho reappears in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'', and gains company. A relatively rare enemy called the Lab Rat has been driven insane by medical experiments, gaining glowing eyes from which it can [[EyeBeams shoot lasers]]. More commonly, bandit troops called Goliaths are always seen wearing some sort of headgear; if this is shot off, their face ''peels back over their skull, allowing their spine to elongate and thrust it clear out of their mouth''. A player can actually see their face wobbling around underneath the swaying, gore-coated skull as it scans for victims... not with any great ease, since the Goliath TurnsRed when this happens and goes berserk, attacking much more viciously than before. A Goliath variant called the Caustic Goliath starts vomiting acid in this state as well.
** In ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'', you can play as the mutant Kreig the Psycho. His Mania skill tree's Release The Beast is this. At critical health (33% or less) his inner voice can't hold back the anger and madness and [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/borderlands/images/2/27/Krieg_Release_the_Beast.png/revision/latest?cb=20130527231443 The Beast]] is allowed to rampage. Like the original Badass Psycho Kreig's right arm swells dramatically and his left arm shrivels to nothing. He screams with a deep, monstrous voice and attacks until the rampage ends.

* Much like in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', the ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries'' version of Two-Face doesn't just suffer from FacialHorror, but the scars extend to at least his left arm as well.

** The Joker in ''Arkham City'' certainly counts, as he is covered in a giant red rash due to [[spoiler:the Titan he injected himself with in ''Asylum'']] poisoning him. [[spoiler:The Joker hallucination in ''Arkham Knight'' starts out this way, with the twist that the rash slowly gets ''better'' over the course of the game, as each time Batman gets fear-gassed by Scarecrow, the Joker personality is able to exert more and more control. By the end of the game, he is as squeaky clean as he was in ''Asylum''.

* ''Corruption of Champions'':
** Being very NSFW, the game has this in spades, mostly through [[InvoluntaryShapeshifter involuntary shapeshifting]]: Succubus Milk has the chance of giving you [[BreastExpansion bigger knockers]] ''or'' it could give you stiletto heels made of '''bone'''. Drinking too many demon potions forces you to become more and more [[TheCorruption corrupt]] until you become a mindless creeper that [[ObviouslyEvil reeks of evil]] and drives away everyone.
** In the mountains, there are worms that can infest you and live in your [[{{Squick}} balls]]. None of your lovers will like this and will force you to cure your condition. One of them [[CuteMonsterGirl (Iz]][[SharkMan ma)]] will leave [[LostForever permanently]] if she finds out. [[note]]My little alpha can't be this gross![[/note]]
** And abusing the game mechanics allows you to have tons of "extra parts", even if they don't belong to your own species. This is actually beneficial because now you have extra ways to [[ShapeShiftersDoItForAChange please.]]
** A minor example would be the [[SharkMan shark girl]] teeth. Shark Girls have a set of shark teeth that can retract to allow them use their mouths without [[GroinAttack grievously harming their partner.]]



* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' has the horribly disfiguring disease known as Corprus. Take a look at [[http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Morrowind:Ash_Creatures these things]] and remember that all of them used to be people.



* ''EternalDarkness'', a game rife with terrifying imagery, has the Bonethieves. Bonethieves are insectoid creatures with scythes for arms that rip into a victim's neck and enter the body, taking it over and killing the person. The body is then used to attack anyone who isn't infected.

The body is then used to attack anyone who isn't infected.



* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'':
** The boss fight against Hojo: you first fight him as a human, but after you beat him, he turns into Helletic Hojo, a freaking hideous, writhing mass of flesh that wouldn't look out of place in ''Franchise/ResidentEvil''.
** The backstory involving Jenova has quite a bit as well. As it's weapon of choice was a virus which drives humans insane before turning them into monsters.
* ''Franchise/FiveNightsAtFreddys'':
** The Bite of '87. This incident involved one of the animatronics biting into ''somebody's skull'', crushing it so badly that the victim's frontal lobe was amputated, but they somehow survived. [[spoiler:However, as ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys4'' shows, they went on to suffer horrible nightmares until (possibly?) dying anyway.]]
** Phone Guy mentions in [[Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys the first game]] that if the animatronics catch the player, they will be stuffed into a Frdy Fazbear suit, whose crossbeams, devices and wires would gore and crush them to death, leaving only their eyeballs and teeth to pop out the fromt of the mask (where the danger's at its worst). The Game Over screen shows this occur, by the by.
** In ''Videogame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3'', there's mention of hybrid suits, that ''could'' be used if you cranked the spring-loaded machinery out of the way. If you ''don't'' crank them up correctly, however, they'll just spring back into place a few moments after you've put it on, resulting in a similar, if maybe even ''slower'', but certain death. [[spoiler:As happened to the murderer, who tried to hide from the children's ghosts in the only such suit left]].
** The previously mentioned process helped to create Springtrap, the BigBad of the third game. You can visibly see human organs when looking at him, further validating the fact that an acutal human being has been [[spoiler:''stuck within that suit for at least 30 years'']]. Even worse, [[http://i.imgur.com/YNMEDKB.jpg there's an image clearly showing just what's underneath]] - namely, the chest is ''gone'' and has more or less been crushed into the animatronic torso, the eye sockets and mouth are pulled open, and the eyes appear to have been popped out by those of the anmatronic.



* ''VideoGame/TheHouseOfTheDeadOverkill'': Many of the enemies, especially Nigel and Sebastian (two twins horribly fused together) and the Lobber from Overkill. And from the same game, Varla Guns, after Warden Darling put his mother's brain in her head... and apparently forgot to reattach the back of her cranium. Extended Cut adds the Dual Boss Sindy & Coco, respectively a Distaff Counterpart to the above Lobber in the looks department and a mutant monkey stripper.



* ''Videogame/KerbalSpaceProgram'': This is what befalls the poor unfortunate kerbals who fall victim to [[GoodBadBugs the kraken]]: their limbs flail, distort and stretch way beyond what they should, looking more like what'd happen if you tied a bunch of ropes to a faulty propeller than a humanoid.



* King Dedede gets subjected to this courtesy of Dark Matter in ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamland3'' and ''VideoGame/Kirby64TheCrystalShards'', where in the second phase of the battles against him, his belly will open up to reveal a projectile-shooting eye or become a toothy mouth that he'll try to chomp on Kirby with.

** The Vampire evolutions, for the most part, were a pretty good deal (if you didn't mind having leathery skin), with Kain and Vorador being the example of what a true evolution would look like. But when Kain's Corruption sets in amongst his (Not-Balance Guardian) Lieutenants and their Broods, and they began devolving, you can't help but imagine that some of them started to think, "no immortality is worth this."

** By the events of ''Soul Reaver'', the other clans have been wrecked as well, and are pretty much animals at this point.
** Believe it or not that's not nearly as bad as what happened to Kain's Lieutenants. Even Raziel, the one that was spared this fate, doesn't get off scot free -- becoming a blue wraith of bones and muscle that's missing a jaw.
** Strangely though, the survivors of Raziel's clan have the reverse happen. They go from blood-starved and malnourished, to [[https://www.nosgoth.com/blog/vampire-clan-evolved-skins-the-sentinel-of-clan-razielim this]] when they finally manage to satiate their hunger in battle.

This isn't really anything ''outstanding'' compared to other examples on this page, but what makes it even more horrifying is that [[spoiler: Fluttershy did this to make them "more interesting" so she could ''sell them to a circus''.]]



* ''VideoGame/RiskOfRain'' has this in droves. It's heavilly implied that the player character is doing this to himself just to survive. For instance, imagine killing a giant magma worm. Upon inspection, it turns out its eyes are symbiotic creatures, providing the creature sight and the worm provides protection. The player character, in his SanitySlippage, decides to rip out his own eye and replace it with these. In fact, it gets to a point where your character is deemed no-longer human, and in the case of the robot, is merging with the flesh with its robotic hull as a skeleton. Not to mention the engineer who is implied to have merged with the ship itself. The only one that is not subject to this is the Acrid, but they were already a test subject.



* The Zerg from ''VideoGame/StarCraft'' can "infest" a Terran by infecting him or her with some sort of virus. This turns that Terran into [[http://starcraft.wikia.com/wiki/Infested_terran this]].

** Link's first transformation into a wolf in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'', when thrown into the Twilight Realm for his first time, has a theme of the wolf ''bursting'' out from inside him.
* ''VideoGame/TheSuffering'' has quite a bit of this, especially as the enemies are all personifications of different methods of execution: The Festers, for example, represent those left to die aboard a beached slave ship, and are constantly being eaten from within by rats. Occasionally, these bloated corpses will ''open'' their bellies and let a swarm of live rats pour out to attack anyone in the area.
** Mainliners (representing lethal injection) are in constant pain due to all the lethal chemicals in their veins- as if the stunted limbs and [[EyeScream syringed eyeballs]] weren't bad enough.
** Torque's transformation into his [[SuperpoweredEvilSide monster form]] in which his head appears to briefly turn inside out and [[EyelessFace his eyes vanish behind skin]].
*** In the sequel, the transformations are more intense, depending on how far down the KarmaMeter Torque is. The worst involves Torque's skin hardening into bony plates covered in sharp spines.
** At one point in the sequel, a guard is briefly heard screaming over the radio about being sliced in the stomach and that something is "pulling itself inside" him.
** The Creeper's weapons of choice, namely the bodies of his prostitute victims, bonded to his stomach and made into CombatTentacles. Oh, and apparently, being absorbed by this guy is the [[FateWorseThanDeath fate of any woman in the game he doesn't decide to gut immediately]].
** And the Festers? According to their entry in Clem's journal they might actually be [[spoiler:the spirit of the slave-traders as opposed to the slaves they left to die on the ship]].



* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' has the Amalgamates, [[spoiler:which are Alphys' attempts at giving monsters human Determination, which made them melt and merge into each other]]. Such lovely examples include [[spoiler:a snowdrake with ''[[EyeScream vegetoid faces for eyes]]'' and a giant blob which are multiple dogs merged into one, with a gaping and leaking black hole where its face would be]].



* ''VideoGame/{{Wick}}'' features a boy who's contorted from polio.



** On a related note, the texture maps for almost every 3D character are pretty grotesque when taken out of context. They're sort of...flattened out pieces of people, all stretched.
* ''Videogame/KerbalSpaceProgram'': This is what befalls the poor unfortunate kerbals who fall victim to [[GoodBadBugs the kraken]]: their limbs flail, distort and stretch way beyond what they should, looking more like what'd happen if you tied a bunch of ropes to a faulty propeller than a humanoid.
* ''VisualNovel/PartTimeJob'' has [[spoiler: Lyra becoming a severed head in a jar, Twilight and Screw Loose being sewn together and given Lyra's body to boot, and Pinkie Pie getting her hind legs replaced with giant alligator legs]]. This isn't really anything ''outstanding'' compared to other examples on this page, but what makes it even more horrifying is that [[spoiler: Fluttershy did this to make them "more interesting" so she could ''sell them to a circus''.]]
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' has the boss fight against Hojo: You first fight him as a human, but after you beat him, he turns into Helletic Hojo, a freaking hideous, writhing mass of flesh that wouldn't look out of place in ''Franchise/ResidentEvil''.
** The backstory involving Jenova has quite a bit as well. As it's weapon of choice was a virus which drives humans insane before turning them into monsters.
* ''VideoGame/TheHouseOfTheDeadOverkill'' Many of the enemies, especially Nigel and Sebastian (two twins horribly fused together) and the Lobber from Overkill. And from the same game, Varla Guns, after Warden Darling put his mother's brain in her head... and apparently forgot to reattach the back of her cranium. Extended Cut adds the Dual Boss Sindy & Coco, respectively a Distaff Counterpart to the above Lobber in the looks department and a mutant monkey stripper.
* ''VideoGame/RiskofRain'' Has this in droves. It's heavilly implied that the player character is doing this to himself just to survive. For instance, Imagine killing a giant magma worm. Upon inspection, it turns out it's eyes are symbiotic creatures. providing the creature sight and the worm provides protection. The player character, in his SanitySlippage decides to rip out his own eye and replace it with these. Infact, it gets to a point where your character is deemed no-longer human, and in the case of the robot, it merging with the flesh with its robotic hull as a skeleton. Not to mention the engineer who is implied to have merged with the ship itself. The only one that is not subject to this is the Acrid, but they were already a test subject.
* There are two instances of this trope in "VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys":
** The Bite of '87. This incident involved one of the animatronics biting into ''somebody's skull'', crushing it so badly that the victim's frontal lobe was amputated, but they somehow survived..
** The Game Over screen shows the protagonist in a Freddy Fazbear suit…however, the crossbeams and live wires inside said suit would slowly and painfully crush the PC to death, leaving only his eyes and teeth intact. If you look carefully, you can also see the PC's brain with no skull in sight (or anything else, for that matter). This means that the PC's skin could have been ripped off at some point.
** In "VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3", there's mention of hybrid suits, that ''could'' be used if you cranked the spring-loaded machinery out of the way. If you ''don't'' crank them up correctly, however, they'll just spring back into place a few moments after you've put it on, resulting in a similar, if maybe even ''slower'', but certain death. [[spoiler:As happened to the murderer, who tried to hide from the children's ghosts in the only such suit left]].
** The previously mentioned process helped to create Springtrap, the BigBad of the third game. You can visibly see human organs when looking at him, further validating the fact that an acutal human being has been [[spoiler:''stuck within that suit for at least 30 years'']].
* This is present in the very NSFW game ''Corruption of Champions'' mostly through [[InvoluntaryShapeshifter involuntary shapeshifting]]: Succubus Milk has the chance of giving you [[BreastExpansion bigger knockers]] ''or'' it could give you stiletto heels made of '''bone'''. Drinking too many demon potions forces you to become more and more [[TheCorruption corrupt]] until you become a mindless creeper that [[ObviouslyEvil reeks of evil]] and drives away everyone.
** In the mountains, there are worms that can infest you and live in your [[{{Squick}} balls]]. None of your lovers will like this and will force you to cure your condition. One of them [[CuteMonsterGirl (Iz]][[SharkMan ma)]] will leave [[LostForever permanently]] if she finds out. [[note]]My little alpha can't be this gross![[/note]]
** And abusing the game mechanics allows you to have tons of "extra parts", even if they don't belong to your own species. This is actually beneficial because now you have extra ways to [[ShapeShiftersDoItForAChange please.]]
** A minor example would be the [[SharkMan shark girl]] teeth. Shark Girls have a set of shark teeth that can retract to allow them use their mouths without [[GroinAttack grievously harming their partner.]]

* Much like in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', the ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries'' version of Two-Face doesn't just suffer from FacialHorror, but the scars extend to at least his left arm as well. [[spoiler: A hallucination of the Joker in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' makes a comment that subtly questions whether or not Dent's penis also suffers the same scarring.]]

** Ever wondered what a video game glitch would look like in reality? Look no further than Porygon-Z - essentially an unlicensed [[GameMod software mod]] of [=Porygon2=], with [[FloatingLimbs its limbs, head and neck disconnected from its body]] and its idle animation consisting of conulsing erratically.

* At first glance, the ''{{Pokemon}}'' franchise doesn't seem to fit this trope since most evolutions occur in the span of 30 seconds, until you realize how drastic the changes of those evolutions are in only the span of 30 seconds, it starts becoming more terrifying. To put it simply, many evolutions involve the sudden introduction of new elemental types, suddenly growing and swelling to sometimes over double the Pokémon's original size, and many evolutions from originally cute creatures suddenly alter their personality into being aggressive and sometimes even disastrously violent.
** One particularly horrific example is Munchlax's evolution into Snorlax. Munchlax starts as a cute little Pokémon at 2 feet tall and a husky 231.5lbs and ''in the span of 30 seconds'' balloons into a beast that is three times as tall, and over four times as heavy at a half ton in weight!

** Heatran's body is made of rugged steel. However, some Pokédex entries state that much of its body has partially melted in spots ''out of its own high body temperature''.

** The Bosses should be also noted. They are fused from many human corpses! Needles to say this corpses are clerly distinctive. Hell, even some kinds of basic Slashers seems to be made from two fused humans.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TheEvilWithin'' is ''extremely'' fond of this trope. Take for example the [[NotUsingTheZWord Haunted]], the most basic enemy in the game. They are zombie-like creatures that are horribly mutilated, often impaled all over their body with sharp stakes, ''huge'' glass shards, or wrapped all over in barbed wire. It gets ''way'' worse from there.
