*** [[Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods Super Saiyan God]] is canon's answer to 4; instead of more simian features, spikier hair or sparks of electricity, the user only gets slightly tanner and slimmer along with red-violet hair and irises. When compared to 3's elongated hairstyle and enlarged forehead, this is a huge step. [[Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF The next movie]] adds the awkwardly-named Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan, which is, as the name suggests, an SSG gone Super Saiyan, with the familiar spiky hair and additional muscle mass. The primary difference (apart from the appropriately god-sized aura) is that the SSGSS's hair is blue rather than gold.

*** Super Saiyan 3 takes a couple steps back to the ugly side of the B-Line. The most prominent change is that a Saiyan's hair gets extremely long, but his eyebrows also vanish, his muscles slightly bulk up again, and his [[ForeheadOfDoom forehead grows]], making him resemble a Neanderthal. On the other hand the eyes go from turquoise to a more natural blue with more visible pupils.

* Shadow the Hedgehog in VideoGame/SonicAdventure2 is a variation: As the UltimateLifeform, he himself has only ever had a hedgehogoid form, but his [[FlawedPrototype prototype]] is monstrous.

** ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' apparently borrows ''Kabuto's'' transformation gimmick, only replace Heavy Armor with "Live Action SuperDeformed".

** ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' apparently borrows ''Kabuto's'' transformation gimmick, has its characters dance back and forth across the line. All five main characters have a SuperDeformed Level 1 form, which turns into a more normally proportioned Level 2 form[[note]]excepting Lazer, who becomes a motorcycle prop[[/note]]. Each can then add on an expansion pack to achieve a Level 3 form that in most cases is asymmetrical and gaudy compared to the Level 2 form, with the second game's themes clashing heavily with those of the base Rider. The additions made by their Level 5 forms, in contrast, are minimalistic in design and only replace Heavy Armor affect one limb. The Level 50 forms return to the heavier look of Level 3, but with "Live Action SuperDeformed". armor designed to complement rather than contrast against the base suits they're added on to, while Level 99 gives Ex-Aid a gigantic bulky suit of armor. Finally, Ex-Aid's final form has him shed the armor to become a ''literal'' {{Bishonen}}, complete with [[LongHairedPrettyboy long, flowing golden hair]] and [[BishieSparkle rainbow sparkles]].

** The eponymous mask from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' becomes more humanoid the longer Link faces it in battle. First is merely the mask itself, the second, Majora's Incarnation, grows some spindly limbs and what vaguely looks like a face, and finally, the Majora's Wrath form enlarges those limbs and then grows an actual (if horrifying) face with an eye on the top.
** A variant with Bellum of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaPhantomHourglass'', where it only became humanoid through DemonicPossession. Its first form ''is'' its true form, a giant squid-like creature; after that is defeated, Bellum takes control of the ship it uses to terrorize the World of the Ocean King, the Ghost Ship, engaging the heroes in a naval battle; after that is done, [[spoiler:Bellum possesses Linebeck, transforming him into a Phantom (those same knight-like enemies that torment Link in the Temple of the Ocean King) for the final battle.]]

* ''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.
