*** There's a variant for Phoenix Lords. They can be killed, but resurrect by subsuming the soul of an Exarch into themselves. The Exarch becomes the new incarnation of the Phoenix Lord, but their original personality is completely buried.
** Ork Painboyz are happy to perform emergency transformations. With or without consent. Or an emergency.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'': Calling Palpatine an ally would be quite a stretch, but Anakin returns from his duel with Obi-Wan so badly injured in ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' that he's given robotic limbs, a ton of robotic organs, and a pressurized life-support suit to create Darth Vader. Obi-Wan was being ''very literal'' when he said "he's more machine now than man." Other characters, not being quite as badly injured, get ArtificialLimbs.

Obi-Wan was being ''very literal'' when he said "he's more machine now than man." Due to the emergency nature of this transformation, Vader ends up with a body that's [[MightyGlacier physically powerful but far less agile than he'd been while fully human]]. Other characters, not being quite as badly injured, get ArtificialLimbs.

* Subverted ''Literature/TheUnderneath.'' Hawk Man can save himself from Grandmother's venom by transforming into a hawk, but refuses to do so due to not being able to change back and ends up dying.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Videogame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'', you can give some of your blood to Heather, a young girl dying from a traffic accident, in order to save her life. While this is physically beneficial (she survives and recovers quickly, as well as becomes stronger and healthier), it also makes her develop a psychological bond with you, essentially acting like she's drugged / in love with you and can't be without you (and your blood). She also does a few questionable things to appease you, ranging from giving you her money to luring home a guy and locking him up in the bathroom as a "meal" for you. [[spoiler:If she stays with you pass a certain plot point, she'll get murdered by the Sabbat for the explicit purpose of punishing you. It can be avoided by ordering her to leave you, never come back, and try to forget everything. Either option is, according to many players, completely heartrending.]]

* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'': The game implies that the Daughter of Chaos was made a Fire Keeper as a means of magical life-support. [[HeroicSacrifice Sucking the blight pus from her servants]] nearly killed her, and even in her current condition [[TheWoobie she's blind, immobile, in constant pain]] and [[BodyHorror endlessly giving birth to bloody, stillborn eggs]]. Given that she can now live indefinitely in this state, it's no surprise that Quelana requests you to MercyKill her.
