* Ashitaka in ''Anime/PrincessMononoke'' gets a cursed arm from contact with the tentacle-goop of a demon. It tends to pulse and warp bizarrely, giving him occasional SuperStrength and making his arrows [[OffWithHisHead considerably more lethal]]; he doesn't have much control over it, though, and it's going to kill him eventually if he doesn't find a way to remove the curse.

* All the devilmen in ''DevilMan'' gain their powers through DemonicPossession and BodyHorror. It gets worse the more a demon takes over a human host or [[MixAndMatchCritter several merge]] into one body. * ''AngelSanctuary'': So, so much. Rosiel's powers are exclusively this, and a few others get in on the act too.

* The Las Plagas parasites from ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' usually spawn such mutations in those they infect. Even villains who don't go full-on OneWingedAngel tend to have giant claws (Krauser) and CombatTentacles (Saddler before fully transforming). ** The T Virus usually just creates zombies, but properly treated, victims can be turned into boss monsters such as the Tyrant and the Nemesis. The point of the virus was to mass-produce these guys - the zombies and most everything else are the result of accidents.

** As Albert Wesker, who himself gained quite a few of these powers, revealed, this was the ultimate intention of the Ouroburos plague; to transform select humans into superpowered monsters and kill all others.

added Eden Green
Added DiffLines:
* The main characters in ''Literature/EdenGreen'' are infected with an alien needle symbiote that keeps them alive no matter what. This results in some horrifying but useful mutations, such as when Eden falls from a cliff and her hand warps into a sick claw with which she can catch herself.

** In the Daud DLCs, Daud has his own set of powers. Summoning assassins, blinking but freezing time around yourself while using it, sensing runes and bone charms of the eldritch abominations in the world of Dishonored and, oh, right, pull. Sounds normal? You basically use the force to choke your victims when upgraded. Before then, its telekinesis. And you can completely KILL them while using the ability. Did I mention you can give your assassins this ability?

Did I mention you can give your assassins this ability? ** We mentioned Emily's version of Blink, called Far Reach. We didn't mention the Shadow Walk. Emily transforms into a dark being made of something smoke-like, but the best part is... you can still interact with targets. The Dishonored 2 trailer shows just how interesting this is. ** All of these abilities in Dishonored are unique and all... but there are ten that are marked by the Outsider... and they can give their powers to others(seemingly forever, and they might all have the ability).

* ''VideoGame/{{Dishonored}}'': ** The Outsider is said to be the offspring of a demon and an angel. The powers he gives certainly show that. ** Blink. While Corvo's is relatively is simple, and not too horrifying(unless you're an unlucky guard on a high chaos walkthrough), Emily's version in the Dishonored 2 trailer resembles a grappling hook in usage. If grappling hooks happened to be black tendrils, of course. ** Devouring swarm. While summoning is nothing new, devouring swarm summons plague rats, that not only eat corpses, not only do they spread the plague, but you can upgrade your ability to make them BIGGER. ** Possession, its not too often when possession is used in a video game. Possession in Dishonored is mostly a normal ability. Except, after you use it, most people and hounds tend to... vomit. This actually stuns them, and is very useful. ** Shadow kill is interesting. When one dies, they immediately turn to ash when using stealth. Or, when upgraded, if they happen to die at all. That's it, but if you think about it... ** In the Daud DLCs, Daud has his own set of powers.

** Double, sort of. She is an EldritchAbomination. In battle, she doesen't use much of this: she's a VoluntaryShapeshifter with the ability to assume the form of any of the other fighters and use their powers in battle. [[CutscenePowerToTheMax She makes up for it in cutscenes]].

* The Terror Mask in ''VideoGame/Splatterhouse'' gives its wearer this along with a HealingFactor in addition to making them a hulking giant in the remake. Rick is able to protrude bones from his body and sharpen them into blades, or open his chest to siphon blood from his enemies.
