* In ''Franchise/StarCraft'' this is the primary means that the Zerg race produce their units and buildings by "morphing" larva into a unit or a drone into a building. During morphing stage the larva transforms into a chrysalis/cocoon for some time. Some units have a second stage of which makes them even more effective or change their role entirely (Mutalisks go from fast short-ranged flyers to either slow long-ranged ground attack or air attack flyers).

* A series of commercials for the ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' series showed weapons from the games being used in real life in a ''Series/{{Jackass}}'' inspired way. Many of these included involuntary one-way transformations, where [[https://youtu.be/3XP-ed6dD3w one guy gets turned into a chicken despite protesting]], [[https://youtu.be/nWBS_hHW2jE a few friends turn one of their mum's into a sheep by accident]] and [[https://youtu.be/GQwOCrMpSh8 two guys transform one of their friend's girlfriend into a cow just to mock him.]] And yes, they're all as full of FridgeHorror as they sound.

* The Elans of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' are humans who have undergone a secret, voluntary transformation that leaves them looking exactly the same, but they are effectively immortal, being able to live purely on psychic energy. There is just something off-putting about them that makes the normals uncomfortable, though: by game rules, they have become Aberrations like a rust monster or a mind flayer.

** At the end of the third season, Twilight Sparkle is transformed into an alicorn princess. Evidently, the transformation can't be reversed, but all that's really changed about her is that she now has wings, a longer horn, got a little taller and is a bit more powerful.

** "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E26ToWhereAndBackAgainPart2 To Where and Back Again Part 2]]": That is the fate of Thorax, and then of all changeling drones as they follow his example, when they choose to share love with others instead of hoarding it. They get surrounded with a radiant chrysalis and emerge as colorful, elegant hybrids of pony and stag beetle, quite apart from their previous black, withered forms. The change is clearly permanent, and also takes care of the perpetual hunger they were plagued with.
