The transformation itself may be scientific in origin, or mystical. Popular mystical transformations include werewolves and other {{werebeasts}}, [[TotallyNotAWerewolf wolves]] (who may be confused for werewolves), or such chestnuts as a witch [[BewitchedAmphibians turning people into toads]]. And who can forget such classic fairy tales such as [[SwanLake swan maidens]] or Literature/TheFrogPrince? In fact, Animorphism is OlderThanFeudalism, with ''Literature/TheOdyssey'' describing Circe turning Odysseus' sailors into pigs.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'' has the Zoan variety of [[PowerUpFood Devil fruits]], which allow the eaters to transform into a certain animal depending on what the fruit is, as well as a half-human hybrid of said animal (and yes, even humans are counted as an "animal"). Most fruits have a certain "model" for animals that are in the same family (EX: Dog Dog fruit, Model Wolf), or different sub-branches like "Awakened" which is more beast then man, "Mythical" like a Phoenix, and "Ancient" like a T-Rex.

** If an animal eats a Zoan fruit corresponding to its own species it does nothing except give them the Devil Fruit weakness

* Tha Makuta in ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'' liked to take on animal forms, most famously Miserix, who preferred reptile forms to his original body (his only existing official image also has him turned into a dragon). The Phantoka Makuta team chose the form of bats, while the Mistika team took on the semblance of insects. However as a subversion, due to a mutagen, they couldn't turn back.

** In the ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia'' games (and their remakes), Manaketes could generally transform into different types of Dragons depending on which kind of Dragonstone they used.
** The ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius'' games added the Laguz, of which Dragons were one of the many races, who could transform into beast forms and back at will, though they would revert to their humanoid state when they ran out of transformation points. A select few characters could stay transformed as long as they willed it, but most of them had their stats cut to make up for it. In ''Path of Radiance'', the Laguz would transform without the player's choice or input when their meters were full, but ''Radiant Dawn'' allowed the player to activate it whenever they wanted so long as they had transformation points to use.

** [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe The seventh game]] (released in the West as simply ''Fire Emblem'') seems to imply that (at least for the ''Elibe''-verse) it's quite difficult for dragons to switch from form to form without losing their memories and personalities from their other forms.
