** On the player's side, the Occultist has access to summonable CombatTentacles, as well as a variety of curses and debuffs. It's heavily these powers come from a DealWithTheDevil.

* In ''{{Fanfic/Daymare}}'' this becomes Izuku's Quirk, Living Nightmare, which at it's most powerful allows him to turn into an EldritchAbomination, leaving destruction in his path. Still, having a terrifying Quirk like this left its mark, with this Izuku being a lot more messed up than his canon counterpart.

* In the New 52 ''ComicBook/AnimalMan'' series, Buddy Baker becomes infused with more power from The Red(the metaphysical manifestation of the Animal Kingdom, and the animal equivalent to ''ComicBook/SwampThing'''s The Green), and his power to use animal abilities is morphed into actually physically manifesting animal characteristics. These transformations are [[BodyHorror visceral and not pleasant to look at]].

** In ''TabletopGame/PrincessTheHopeful'', A lot of [[TheHeartless Darkened]] tend to develop abilities like this, such as growing a gigantic mouth filled with teeth, turning their arms into claws or spitting acid. Being warped by [[TheCorruption the All-Consuming Darkness]] will do that to your body.

# The powers may or may not require [[PowerAtAPrice specific criteria to be fulfilled in order to be gained]]. A price, so to speak. For example, a dark sacrificial ritual must be performed to summon a god that may grant said powers. Another good example would be to make a literal deal with a demon so that he can give you powers at the cost of your soul.
