* Want a really crazy and infamous example of this trope, look no further than Giygas from '''VideoGame/EarthBound''. Giygas [[TheGreys wasn't nearly so monstrous before]], as an angry little alien creature in a life support capsule who wanted to punish humanity for stealing the power of [[PsychicPowers PSI]]. However a protracted period stuck inside a Devil's Machine with his own immense psychic power eventually warps him into what could only be described as an [[AlmightyIdiot "an idiotic god"]] [[MadeOfEvil made of evil and madness itself]], taking the form of a distorted face screaming in agony, spending the entire boss fight babbling and ranting incoherently and is capable of destroying the entire cosmos [[ObliviouslyEvil with absolutely no self-awareness of what he's doing]]. [[spoiler:And to think this unstoppable horror is being manipulated by a cowardly fat kid.]]

** In the season 1 finale, [[spoiler: in a last ditch effort to defeat the Crystal Gems, [[ArcVillain Jasper]] convinces Lapis Lazuli to [[FusionDance fuse]] with her to form the monstrous Gem Fusion Malachite...but before she can attack the Gems, the much abused Lapis [[TheDogBitesBack seizes]] control of the fusion from Jasper and uses her [[MakingASplash powers]] to drag the both of them to the bottom of the ocean.]] Then in "Earthlings", [[spoiler: Jasper tries this again with a Corrupted Gem Monster in order to defeat Smoky Quartz, Steven and Amethyst's fusion. Not only is the resulting fusion still no match for Smoky, but it ends up turning Jasper into a Gem Monster as well.]]

Added DiffLines:

*** Inuyasha, being his brother, faces the same problem, only with greater drawbacks, since he's only a half-demon. [[SuperpoweredEvilSide He gets stronger, but can't control himself at all]] and can't turn back by himself.

* A rather humorous example of this happens in ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'': a small ghost Panty and Stocking had spent a long time trying to kill earlier is turned into a huge ghost by Scanty and Kneesock, but Panty and Stocking kill her seconds later.

** Eneru from the Skypiea Arc, a PsychoElectro with a [[AGodAmI god complex]], transforms into a Raijin-shaped being composed pure lightning as a last-ditch attempt to defeat Luffy. It makes no difference whatsoever since Luffy is a RubberMan.

* ''VideoGame/BlazBlueCentralFiction'' has [[spoiler:Susanoo, who is the BigBad inside an incredibly powerful, world-destroying suit.]] Despite all his power in the story, he's considered the single worst character in the game, due to a lack of defensive options preventing him from doing anything once he loses momentum, and needing to use certain attacks to unlock seals, which gives him more moves. But by the time he gets enough seals unlocked to pose a significant threat, any other character (including fellow bottom-tier characters) will have already won the match.

** Aizen falls prey to this, as well. While his final series of transformations certainly increase his already-impressive abilities dramatically, his zanpakutou's ability to control opponent's perceptions was what let him curbstomp his opponents so effortlessly. He loses that ability as he transforms, forced to fight without strategy or deception, ultimately making him a surmountable obstacle.

** As is the Fusion of the modern day Homeworld Rubies. It's big.....and that's about it. Plus, like it's component Gems, [[SuperGullible it's not very bright.]] In it's first appearance, Steven gets it to back down with an obvious lie. In it's second appearance, the Crystal Gems quickly break it apart within moments of it being formed.

* In the webcomic version of One Punch Man, Garou goes through this, transforming into a monstrous form with vastly increased strength, but Saitama notes that he's actually weaker than he was before due to lacking the skill and agility he had in his earlier forms, and he reverts back to his humanoid form after a few of Saitama's attacks.
