* From Italy: ** ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' where fairies and witches are these. They get several sets of transformation sequences of course. ** ''WesternAnimation/PopPixie'', a SpinOff of the former. Pixies need to transform into Pop Pixies in order to unlock their full powers, though both boys can also transform like this. ** ''[[WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}} W.I.T.C.H.]]''. In Icelandic, the comic of W.I.T.C.H. was renamed to ''Magical Girls'', since W.I.T.C.H. obviously doesn't work in all languages. ** ''WesternAnimation/AngelsFriends''

* ''Webcomic/TheSorcerersApprentice'' is an original work by Bwillett, the author of ''Webcomic/CardcaptorTorika'', about girl in New England called Victoria who learns magic (with transformations included) in order to stop a series of monsters unleashed after she put on an ancient ring. It takes a relatively realistic approach to the genre, both in terms of developing the magic system behind the transformations, and its focus on characterisation.

Of course, there are other examples that feature similar themes but diverge even further from the old-style shows. Many fans felt that shows such as ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'' were still MagicalGirl shows, despite all the dissimilarities from the previous generation (others disagree, and feel that ''Rayearth'' is {{Shoujo}} [[RPGAnime RPG World]] {{Fantasy}} instead).

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', about a young, half-human boy with magic powers being raised by magical thousands-of-years-old, mineral-based aliens who just happen to look like women or girls and act as [[MagicalGirlWarrior MagicalGirlWarriors]], defending Earth from the rest of their species and having a lot of [[TearJerker emotional struggles]].

* A [[ShowWithinAShow Show Within A Game]] within ''NoMoreHeroes'' is ''Pure White Lover Bizarre Jelly'', apparently also a SuperRobot show. We never see the anime itself, but the main character seems to be obsessed with it (he is, after all, an {{Otaku}}). ** The Sequel features what is apparently the [[http://www.gametrailers.com/video/bizarre-jelly-no-more/61200 intro]] of the show. It's now titled "Bizarre Jelly 5".
