* IN ''Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines'', the T-X is a Terminator with an endoskeleton covered by liquid metal. It can't shapeshift to the same extent as the T-1000, but it is more stable, is able to carry on-board weapons, and is still able to disguise itself as other people.

** The ''alter self'' spell lets you transform into another creature of your type. Since most spellcasters are humanoids, this means [[FiveRaces humans, elves, dwarves, etc.]] (Although a dragon casting ''alter self'' could only turn into [[OurDragonsAreDifferent a different dragon]].)

The ''humanoid shape'' invocation for Dragonfire Adepts lets them transform into any (non-templated) humanoid shape (it's not ''quite'' as powerful as ''alter self'' for humanoid adepts -- it misses out on a few boni the new form might have -- but on the other hand it lasts for much longer than a standard ''alter self'' spell).

* This is Tessa Gray's unique power in ''The Literature/InfernalDevices''. Her whole schtick is that she can change her appearance into any humanoid, dead or alive, as long as she has touched an object that belonged to them. She's turned into both males and females.

* DependingOnTheWriter, Mystique from the ''ComicBook/XMen'' comics is usually limited to human shapes. Some adaptations have stretched this, though, such as the ''X-Men Evolution'' cartoon that had her turning into animals like wolves (and in one memorable case due to Apocalypse boosting her power, she was able to turn into an entire ''swarm'' of bats).

* The Returned in ''Literature/{{Warbreaker}}'' have this power. Most modern Returned don't know they have it, and so simply take on whatever build and appearance society thinks of as the ideal. The Royal House of Idris, who are descended from a Returned, can alter the color and length of their hair at will (including facial hair for male Royals).
