* Water nymphs can do this in ''Literature/{{Below}}''. They're already humanoid but for a stinging tail to render victims unconscious and rob them. Their memetic camouflage lets them hide the tail and adopt whatever features they like. They also use mind reading to perfect their disguise.

* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'': Albireo Imma's Artifact allows him to assume the appearance, personality, memories, and abilities of anyone he desires, so perfect an imitation that he might as well be transforming into that person themselves. There is a catch that keeps this from being ridiculously overpowered: if he uses it to assume the form of someone more powerful than himself, ItOnlyWorksOnce, and only for a few minutes. People less powerful than himself he can transform into with impunity.

{{Shapeshift|ing}}ers are very common in fiction due to their flexibility. They can turn into a [[{{Werewolf}} wolf]], a [[{{Sizeshifter}} giant]], a tree, a whale, or sometimes only transform into another person.

** In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', the Callidus Temple of the Officio Assassinorum are experts in the use of the aptly named drug polymorphine.
