* ''Manga/Hellsing'': Alucard's power level depends on how many power limiters are unlocked. His penultimate form comes with release level 1. It is a huge black mass filled with glowing eyeballs. In his level zero form that only his boss can unlock for him, he appears as a sexy medieval knight on a horse.

* Omega from the ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' games starts off huge in his first form, then becomes even bigger in his second, and finally reverts to a much smaller form, which just happens to be [[spoiler:Zero's original body.]] As the trope states, he is infinitely more powerful in this form than he is in his others. He's actually a departure from series norm, which tend to be small, agile humanoids followed by a giant monstrous form. However, in early games, the humanoid is more dangerous than the monster, since Zero's most powerful weapons are close-range, which is harder with the boss's speed. Later final bosses show greater damage and reach on their attacks. (Compare Ragnarok-Weil to Copy X or Elpizo.)

* In ''VideoGame/TrillionGodOfDestruction'', the eponymous [[BigBad Trillion]] starts off as a titanic monster vaguely resembling a bipedal and wingless dragon, then transforms into [[ScaledUp a full on dragon form with wings]], and finally turns into a smaller humanoid form that still has the wings and horns, but now also has long hair and wields an [[ImprobableWeaponUser oversized kitchen knife and fork as weapons]]. It's {{lampshaded}} by Faust who notes the second form is more combat-oriented and the third it's "most natural" state [[spoiler:and {{justified}} since Trillion [[WasOnceAMan was once a demon Overlord like the main characters]]]].

* The [[BigBad Nome King]] in ''Film/ReturnToOz'' starts out as a creepy moving face on a rock surface, like the other [[RockMonster Nomes]]. But as he grows in power, he becomes more and more humanoid -- although his OneWingedAngel form in the climax is a mass of rock that looks even more monstrous than before.

* ''LightNovel/TheWeaknessOfBeatriceTheLevelCapHolySwordswoman'':
** The Break News follow this. The weakest of them is the Thousand Dragon, a dragon a thousand metres in length. All other Break News are humanoid, with the strongest of them, Sutriona, resembling a ten year old girl with fairy wings.
** Abyss, an UltimateLifeForm created by the Labyrinth, also fits. This is justified by its backstory - the Labyrinth created various kinds of monsters and had them fight against any intruders, to gather data on the strongest form of life. When human adventurers consistently defeated the monsters, it came to the conclusion that humans were the strongest.

** Nintendo realized in ''[[Videogame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker Wind Waker]]'' that the humanoid Ganondorf was a far more compelling character, and thus a better arch-enemy, than his boarlike bestial form Ganon, so they saved the duel with Ganondorf for ''last'', following a battle with a giant transforming puppet version of Ganon.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' has an unusual variant [[spoiler:with Calamity Ganon. When Link finally faces the fiend in Hyrule Castle, it emerges from its cocoon as a giant, multi-limbed MechanicalAbomination with robotic, spider-like Guardian legs, arms with laser cannons and laser blades instead of hands, and a grotesque skull-like face with a very faint similarity to Ganondorf's original human face. Upon being defeated in this form, Ganon ditches the {{Magitek}} cybernetics and reconstitutes itself as Dark Beast Ganon, which resembles Ganon's bestial form from ''Twilight Princess'' and, while still a big and monstrous-looking creature, more closely resembles a real creature and is significantly less gruesome-looking than Calamity Ganon.]]

* When adapting ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' for the big screen, Creator/PeterJackson [[WhatCouldHaveBeen considered]] having Sauron appear in person during the final battle, in his angelic Maia form, but ultimately decided against it.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'''s [[TheManBehindTheMan The Imprisoned]] starts off as a giant ArmlessBiped covered in black-red scales with only a mouth and legs. Its second form grows arms, and its third form grows a tail, as well as the ability to levitate. [[spoiler: Once it absorbs the Goddess Hylia's soul, it achieves its true form Demon King Demise, which pretty much resembles [[XMeetsY a cross between]] Ganondorf and [[Franchise/StreetFighter Akuma]].]]
