* In the ''Film/{{TRON}}'' universe, you will go from a normal human (User) to a program if you are digitized into a computer. You get to keep your mind, memories, face, and general body shape, but your clothes are substituted with a neat glowing bodysuit and you are subject to most of the "physical laws" of the computer world.
** ''Film/TronLegacy'' changes this, due to the setting being a different Grid built with User integration in mind. Your clothes go with you when you're brought in, and you bleed as a normal human would. Age is kept time-relevant with the real world, even though time in the grid passes much more slowly (Kevin Flynn looks twenty years older, as he should, but is mentally around 1000 years old due to spending all those years on the Grid).
** Users are also apparently a lot hardier and stronger than the average program, and Flynn can to some degree alter the computer world around him at will.
*** The former is probably meant to reflect data size and redundancy. Randomly change a few molecules in a human and a couple dozen instructions in a program's code - ''most'' of the time the program will suffer far more for it.

* In TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}, anyone from outside Darkon who stays for too long will have their memory altered to believe that they had always lived there, even to "adopting" random tombs as belonging to ancestors. Natives euphemistically refer to the phenomenon as "Finding one's roots". The Necropolis is more blunt: enter, and you die and become one of the Undead residents.
** From "Expedition to Castle Ravenloft", Strad has a connection to Barovia... literally. He gains supernatural powers on top of being a super-vampire from three fanes that makes him virtually impossible to kill.
* A more nightmarish variation comes from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' (who else?) in the form of the [[NegativeSpaceWedgie Eye of Terror]] and certain Daemon-infested planets within, in particular the [[MindScrew Planet of Sorcerers]]. The longer you stay on one of these Daemon worlds, the more mutated you become, until you become a mewling, degenerate lump of writhing flesh. Ahriman of the Thousand Sons attempted to use his magic and try and save his troops from mutation. [[AndIMustScream It, um, didn't work out too well.]]
** Evidence also suggests that the Eye of Terror may be similar to the ''Anime/TheCatReturns'' example above (just not involving cute {{Cat Girl}}s). In the 4th edition Chaos codex, it mentions that the only thing keeping the Chaos Marines alive, (mostly) unchanged, and (relatively) sane is their sense of purpose and undying hatred for all things Imperial.

* In the ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'' series, Sora, Donald, and Goofy (and, [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance later on]], Riku) may magically transform into bodies more "appropriate" to the world they are visiting. This is relative, however, because apparently it is more "weird" for an upright-walking talking duck to exist in [[{{Disney/TheLionKing}} the Pride Lands]] than it is in [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Port Royal]]. It seems to be dictated by the RuleOfFunny and RuleOfCute than anything else. Justified in [[{{Film/Tron}} Space Paranoids]] and [[{{Film/TronLegacy}} The Grid]], however, because it's well known from the films that digitizing people makes them neat and glowy.
** Technically averted in most cases, as the characters are transforming ''themselves'' to blend in. First through Donald's magic, and later with Sora's new clothes. Timeless River seems to play it straight for the heroes, though for some reason modern-day Pete is unaffected.
* ''VisualNovel/AoiShiro'' has the eponymous Blue Castle, a place of chaos (similar to the aforementioned [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Eye of Terror]]) that will warp your [[ThisIsYourBrainOnEvil mind]] and [[BodyHorror body]].

* Parson Gotti of ''Webcomic/{{Erfworld}}'' finds himself subject to the first variant. For example, any profanity he tries to utter comes out as "boop". Later it turns out [[spoiler:the spell that summoned him included a subtle MindControl aspect that made him more ruthless.]]

* There are studies on how environment affects the mood of people. Forests are good, while cities put quite a lot of stress on a person. Especially modern cities - it seems the chaotic structure of medieval buildings in old city centres is less detrimental than the unnatural orderliness of really modern city parts. Of course, this effect is so weak that most people don't really notice it.
** Several studies (for instance, [[http://www.inquisitr.com/3003956/green-spaces-linked-to-increased-human-lifespan-new-study/ this one]]) seem to indicate that living in/near gardens, parks, forests etc. may improve physical as well as mental health and may even help you live longer. Even just a daily stroll in an ordinary city park could make a difference.

* In ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'', when Joy, Sadness, and Bing Bong are trapped in the abstract thought chamber, their shapes shift in stages to various abstract forms. First they turn into Picasso-like amalgamations (which fall apart during the second stage), then turn two dimensional, and finally lose all definition, becoming walking shapes. ([[WordOfGod The directors' commentary]] notes that the soundtrack devolves accordingly, from Atmos to 5.1 to 2.0 to mono.) They shift back when they escape.

* In the ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'' series, Sora, Donald, and Goofy (and, [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance later on]], Riku) may magically transform into bodies more "appropriate" to the world they are visiting. This is relative, however, because apparently it is more "weird" for an upright-walking talking duck to exist in [[{{Disney/TheLionKing}} the Pride Lands]] than it is in [[{{Main/PiratesOfTheCaribbean}} Port Royal]]. It seems to be dictated by the RuleOfFunny and RuleOfCute than anything else. Justified in [[{{Film/Tron}} Space Paranoids]] and [[{{Film/TronLegacy}} The Grid]], however, because it's well known from the films that digitizing people makes them neat and glowy.
