* Evoked in a MarvelComics story of ''ComicBook/TheInhumans'', with one Inhuman petitioning to be exposed (re-exposed) to the mutagenic Terrigen Mists mainly because she's ugly and hoping for a better genetic draw. She emerges as a butterfly woman.

[[AC:AnimeAndManga]]
* In ''Anime/SailorMoon'' a butterfly motif is heavily featured in the titular heroine's "Crisis Make Up!" TransformationSequence which sees her [[FrillyUpgrade power up]] from Sailor Moon into Super Sailor Moon in the third season ''Sailor Moon S''. This is not only touches on this trope but also draws on the way the ButterflyOfDeathAndRebirth trope is used elsewhere in the season, a particularly evocative version shows up [[spoiler:using the power of the Sailor Soldiers themselves rather than via the usual Holy Grail TransformationTrinket that was in hands of the enemies]] in the penultimate episode of the season which is given it's own animation.

* In ''Series/BabylonFive'', Delenn uses a butterfly-like cocoon to [[spoiler:transform into a half-human half-minbari]]. During the transformation, the security team exploited the trope by telling the traitor that it she became beautiful as she left the cocoon, as if she was a butterfly with wings.

* In the ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' series, the golden butterfly is symbolic of Philemon, the diety that allows the heroes to tap into their Personas. According to WordOfGod, in the later games in the series he actually appears as a blue butterfly with an implied similar, if lesser, function, although neither the characters nor any narrator identifies him.

* ''VideoGame/FatalFrame2'' has butterflies everywhere as the motif associated with the twins of All God's Village, referring to the death-and-rebirth interpretation, the identical-halves-of-one being interpretation, and ultimately ending on the transformation interpretation: [[spoiler: The souls of the sacrificed twins ''literally'' become butterflies. Mayu is released from the "cocoon" of her body by the red, wing-shaped handprints Mio leaves on her throat.]]

* In ''Videogame/BioShock2'', [[UnderwaterCity Rapture's]] change as "better" society fueled by Dr. Lamb's [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill extreme altruistic view]] are simbolized by a blue butterfly that is worn by most of the members of the Rapture family and it appears in most of the city. A lot of the graffitis with this motif also have written: "We will be reborn in the cold womb of the ocean. She is our savior".[[spoiler: Turns out more literal than you would think, as Lamb's plan is using her own daughter as a [[TheAssimilator "database" of the population of Rapture]] to create a human completely driven to benefit a group in its entirety.]]
