** Among the Planar Touchstones described in the 3.5E ''Planar Handbook'', there is the Life Molds of Neumannus on the LawfulNeutral plane of Mechanus. Those seeking its high-order power pay the resident Inevitables (living constructs) with blood, and in exchange gets placed in a mold modifying their bodies. Afterward, they can cover themselves in a layer of flexible iron that protect them against weapons, fire and acide and increase their strength (but lower their dexterity), and also remove any need for breathing.

All of your flesh is turned into metal and you receive some really nice bonuses to toughness and strength as a result. Wizards of the Gold school also have a ritual that can turn your body into shiny, solid gold. Current leader and champion of the wizard orders, Balthazar Gelt has done this.

ComicBooks and related media seem to love the idea of combining people with stuff MadeOfShiny, hence the number of characters not just using PoweredArmor but completely encased in a metal skin. It might be an organic metal skin, "liquid metal", or perhaps a super advanced NanoMachine suit of PoweredArmor. Whatever the cause, the visual effect is of a transformed human with skin that is metallic, often silver, and polished to a mirror-like shine. If these figures go unclothed -- and they usually do -- BarbieDollAnatomy will be in play.

These types generally have one of two power sets. They either are NighInvulnerable and have SuperStrength, or [[SuperWeight are fairly high up in terms of power]], usually being {{Reality Warper}}s or in control of some fundamental natural force.

Their appearance usually explains their power. The connotations here are that the character is "as strong and tough as steel", or that they are the cosmic/human equivalent of a MagicMirror, capable of [[IncrediblyLamePun "reflecting"]] on the nature of existence and deriving power from it.

Second, Mercury ''compounds'' are often red; vermilion and cinnabar are both mercury compounds.

This is unusual, because in the comics, Galactus has had numerous other heralds who didn't actually change in appearance or take on a form similar to ComicBook/SilverSurfer's, so the trope is applied to the game because it's an easy way to show that a character has become a herald.
