* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'':
** Changelings are the {{Half Human|Hybrid}} [[OneGenderRace daughters]] of Hags and human males. For them, puberty comes with a subtle urge to seek out their mothers, which can lead them to transform into Hags themselves. Fortunately for them, they can opt to {{Def|iedTrope}}y the Call.
** The {{Cthulhumanoid}} Deep One Hybrids are doomed to undergo an agonizing transformation into full Deep Ones [[YourDaysAreNumbered within a year]] of their 60th birthday. Their feelings about becoming [[TheAgeless ageless]], compulsively cultish monstrosities with free run of the deep sea are... mixed.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Videogame/HeartOfTheSwarm'': In addition to the previous Zerg metamorphoses (and a few new ones, like Zerglings into Banelings), the campaign gives several units a DivergentCharacterEvolution via the evolution missions, where they can gain different traits: Zerglings can become faster more aggressive and jump over obstacles or spawn three at a time, Banelings can split into smaller banelings or jump over obstacles, Ultralisks can become radioactive or return to life after being killed, etc.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'': In later expansions, a Chaos Lord can ascend into a Daemon Prince, a much larger and tougher melee unit. If it dies, the Chaos Lord has to be retrained. Bloodthirsters are summoned into a sacrificed unit, but the effect is the same.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'', Orendi's species the Varimorph are capable of this. The race has the unique ability to intentionally (albeit slowly) adapt their bodies at a genetic level to suit their needs and liking. This also includes being able to develop biological analogues of technological constructs they find. As such no two varimorph are the same in shape or form. It has been observed however that they have a few similar traits that could be considered common among them. These traits are alternating dark and light colored splotches on the skin; wiry, dark hair; and an utter lack of respect for any form of order or authority. In Orendi's case, she had adapted her form to assimilate the internal working of A1.Minion lasers into her hands thus allowing her to control and channel energies more efficiently than the finely crafted weapons of Minion Robotics.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Exiern}}'' dragons are born looking human and don't metamorphose into their true form until they reach adulthood. Adult dragons destroy human settlements and plant their young amongst the survivors to be raised by humans like cuckoos. The heroine's pretty sure her romantic interest is a dragon (she barely survived an encounter with his half-transformed sister) but hasn't figured out how to tell him.
