** Ryoga hates his curse even more in WebAnimation/RanmaAbridged, given that the creators made him Jewish, and pigs are the most commonly-known un-kosher animals. Of course, that doesn't stop him from taking advantage of the benefits of being a cute little piggy.

Added DiffLines:

* Most of the bosses fought in ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'' were members of the Healing Church who were corrupted by the Paleblood laced with the Plague of Beasts and became horrifying monsters as a result. [[spoiler: Considering how the plague was spread in their attempts to communicate with {{EldritchAbomination}}s they definitely deserve it.]]

* ''Film/{{Freaked}}''. The entire board of the EES (Everything Except Shoes) Corporation gets sprayed with the mutation-causing fertilizer they wanted to use on every person in the world, and gets turned into a single giant mutant fleshy shoe. Yes, it's [[WidgetSeries that kind]] of movie.

A Karmic Transformation is when a character is transformed into something they hate (or at least something they think they're superior to). It can be either temporarily or [[{{Metamorphosis}} permanently]]. Either way, it's very [[{{Irony}} ironic]], and often {{Anvilicious}}. Perhaps the most popular version of this is a [[BlackLikeMe white racist turning black]], followed closely by sexists [[GenderBender becoming the opposite sex]] because these are easy to make a point about. Then there is "the hunter becomes the hunted" plot lines where the hunter is [[BalefulPolymorph literally]] turned into the animal (or [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent partially so]]) they were hunting.

* In a [[VerySpecialEpisode Very Special Issue]][[note]]part of an imprint-wide {{Metaplot}} involving some sort of bigotry-enhancing Phlebotinum[[/note]] of the 90s ''{{Youngblood}}'' spinoff ''Bloodpool'', the titular team attends a concert that's attacked by a disgruntled rock band pissed that the club rejected their act in favor of a trio of black songstresses. After their inevitable defeat, the molecule-manipulating hero Fusion uses his powers to make them "black"[[note]]actually AmbiguouslyBrown, since the artist doesn't know how to draw black people[[/note]].

** In the sequel, '':Re'', [[AntiHumanAlliance Aogiri]] has been kidnapping [[TheHunter Ghoul Investigators]] for use in experiments to create another HalfHumanHybrid just like Kaneki. The choice of subjects seems to be one part practicality (most are BadassNormals), and one part this trope.

* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', Kaneki starts out as a normal young man with fairly [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman typical]] [[FantasticRacism attitudes]] about Ghouls being monsters. He isn't malicious so much as uninformed, but soon finds himself transformed into a HalfHumanHybrid and forced to deal with life as a Ghoul. Initially, he insists that he's still human and not a "monster", which earns him both a verbal and physical beating from Touka. He quickly changes his tune, and realizes he is perhaps the only person capable of seeing both sides of the conflict.
