* ''Franchise/KamenRider'' was the TropeNamer and the TropeCodifier. Most Franchise/{{Kamen Rider}}s have "Henshin!" as the [[ByThePowerOfGreyskull changing command]].

* Eric Draven, from MallFight. He started off as a Green Ranger, moved onto becoming Kamen Rider Black, and now transforms (actually saying "HENSHIN!") into a fusion between Franchise/KamenRider and Comicbook/GhostRider.
* Creator/JewWario used to transform into "The Warion" but has now been upgraded into the Fami-Kamen Rider, a Nintendo/Famicom-themed ''KamenRider'' with powers based on 8-bit video game sprites (and a Rider Belt that's a portable Famicom unit).

* Bradley Biggle plays this trope straight to become ''Mint Berry Crunch'' in WesternAnimation/SouthPark episode Coon vs. Coon and friends. In fact, his transformation sequence gives nods to the Franchise/KamenRider franchise and ''Anime/SailorMoon'', both of which are very prominent HenshinHero series.

** ''{{Guyver}}'' is an interesting example, bordering on {{Deconstruction}}: while Sho gets off fairly light, other characters have transformations that [[PainfulTransformation cross straight into]] BodyHorror; [[AntiHero Aptom]] and [[{{Mooks}} the Zoanoids]], for example.

Added DiffLines:

* This is the most common superpower (not [[MostCommonSuperpower that one]]) in ''Literature/SuperPowereds''. Most Supers are Shifters, requiring them to turn into their alt-form to activate their powers. In rare cases (such as with Hershel/Roy), this crosses with SuperpoweredAlterEgo. There are a number of Shifter-type Supers at Lander, including one of their gym teachers, who turns into a robot.

* [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] turns out to be one of these. He transforms with a classic ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' morpher into his jacketed-hatted form, albeit usually just before the show begins.

* In ''IronManArmoredAdventures,'' instead of a suitcase-suit, [[HighSchoolAU teen Tony]] has it as a backpack. It only requires that the central button be pushed and it forms around him on its own without him having to do anything else, making for the most {{Toku}}-like version yet. Now all we need is [[ByThePowerOfGreyskull voice activation]].
