* Creator/JRRTolkien was fond of this trope, probably because of his own spiritual believes. Orcs, for example, are corrupted versions of Elves turned evil by Morgoth. Many Men serving Sauron eventually turn to be like this, like the MouthOfSauron. Gollum (originally a Hobbit) is another example of a normally good creature turn monstrous for the influence of evil.

* Derek Powers from WesternAnimation/DatmanBeyond. The radioactive treatment given to him to treat the exposure to his own mutagen nerve gas leaves him looking like a pitch-black skeleton surrounded by fluorescent green tissue. He can only pass for normal by constantly having fake artificial skin grafted on top.

* In ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', a lot of TheUndead work this way. Cannibals rise from the grave as [[OurGhoulsAreCreepier ghouls]], unrepentant murderers come back as wights, those consumed by hatred become wraiths or spectres, and so on.

lot of TheUndead work this way. Cannibals rise from the grave as [[OurGhoulsAreCreepier ghouls]], unrepentant murderers come back as wights, those consumed by hatred become wraiths or spectres, and so on. Liches are undead wizards who willingly become monsters in order to live forever.
** The ''Book of Vile Darkness'' has Feats for Evil characters (recommended only for [=NPCs=]) who voluntarily become monstrous (and hideous) to gain power. The Evil Brand and Willing Deformity feats are, in effect, self-inflicted BodyHorror to make the recipient CursedWithAwesome.

*** GameplayAndStorySegregation. Just because the Aedra answer you, doesn't mean they answer everyone.

* ''ComicBook/RequiemChevalierVampire'': A literal take, where people are turned into various monsters in the afterlife based on their sins in life:
** Religious fanatics become werewolves;
** Infanticidal women become harpies;
** Rapists become centaurs;
** Hypocrites become ghouls (female SkyPirates in this verse);
** MadScientists become Archeologists, continuing their sick experiments and having to wear newly-flayed skins;
** Vampires are a more eclectic bunch, including Vlad Tepes, Attila the Hun, Alister Crowley, several Nazis, a Japanese participant in the Rape of Nanking, Maximilien Robespierre and Nero;
** People who committed evil in the name of empires (mostly British colonialists) become LizardFolk (led by the dragon KingArthur);
** Victims of evil either become zombies (seems mostly to apply to soldiers who fought in pointless wars) or lemures (ghosts that only move when their tormentor in life is expired on Résurection);
** [[spoiler:Hitler]] was somehow prevented from turning into anything, instead kept as a safety measure against the six million or so Lemures that passed on with his neck being snapped by Dracula.



** The Dark Eldar of 40k, though they generally have a somewhat genteel evil look, have [[EvilScientist Haemonculi]], who enforce this trope ''on themselves'', with a combination of surgical and quasi-scientific means.

** It's implied Doombreed, the oldest Daemon Prince of Khorne, was better known in life as Genghis Khan.
** The Dark Eldar of 40k, though they generally have a somewhat genteel evil look, have [[EvilScientist Haemonculi]], who enforce this trope ''on themselves'', with a combination of surgical and quasi-scientific means. One of them CameBackWrong from the dead, and every new death fails to restore him exactly to the previous state, so nowadays cheerfully lets himself be killed just so he can see what changed this time.

* One of the reasons that God prevents us seeing demons is because they are so ugly and monstrous, according to the Christian saints.

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' has the [[EldritchAbomination Apostles]], every one of whom WasOnceAMan (or woman, or child) before making their sacrifice to the Godhand and being reborn as demons, usually with a heaping helping of BodyHorror to go with their new superpowers. ZigZagged by [[spoiler:Griffith, who becomes monstrous upon transforming into Femto, only to cross the BishonenLine and emerge even ''more'' beautiful after being reborn into the physical plane.]]

* ''Franchise/StarWars'': Darth Vader got all his flesh burned off and earned a black skull-faced suit. Darth Sidious was disfigured into a withered wrinkled ghoul of a man. Darth Maul got tattoos all over his body. Only Count Dooku got away in looks and stayed classy.

* Though it's revealed in ''Luna Eclipsed'' of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' that [[DarkIsNotEvil Princess Luna]] can change to her [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Nightmare Moon]] appearance whenever she wants, it was still her preferred and default form when she [[HeelFaceTurn turned evil]].
