* In ''Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk'', Emil Blonsky aka the Abomination is a Gamma mutate similar to the Hulk. There are some key differences: the Abomination looks more monstrous and he's stronger than Hulk's baseline strength (though Hulk has the advantage of getting stronger as he gets madder). More importantly, the transformation is permanent. Even if Blonsky wanted to become human again, he can't.
* In ''Comicbook/FantasticFour'', Ben Grimm is the only member of the Four who is stuck in his powered form, a rock monster. The others can turn their powers on and off at will. Ben, barring the use of phlebotinum that usually doesn't last longer than a single story arc, can't.

** ''FanFic/AmongTheEorlingas'' transforms Veronica into a horse. She is an especially strong and fast mare, but dislikes being stuck in horse form, and would like to undo this transformation. The people of Rohan think that Veronica is one of the Mearas. Théodred gives her the name Lyfgast.
** In ''FanFic/TheAwkwardAdventuresOfMeghanWhimblesby'', as Meghan enters Middle-earth, she becomes an elf. In a sequence of surprises, Meghan discovers her new RapunzelHair, her gown, her knee-high boots (a "miraculous and somewhat thrilling discovery"), and finally, her PointyEars.
** In ''FanFic/TheGamesOfTheGods'', Rachel and Kari become elves. Rachel also becomes taller, and her black hair becomes blonde. Rachel later identifies herself as a MarySue.
** ''FanFic/TroubledWaters'' is in a different category. The immortal spirit of Henneth Annûn sacrifices herself to save another life, and in result, Henneth becomes a mortal woman.

** 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.

** "[[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 distinct from their previous black, withered forms. The change is clearly permanent, and also takes care of the perpetual hunger they were plagued with.

They do retain their VoluntaryShapeshifting powers, though, which are entirely independent from this.

* In the little-known 1980's SF/Horror novel ''Transformation'' by Edmund Plante the pregnant heroine is horrified to discover that an alien virus is [[BodyHorror transforming her]] into a psychic slug-and-lizard hybrid... at least until she she decides that [[FetishFuel a pregnant psychic alien slug/lizard is actually a pretty cool thing to be.]]

* ''TabletopGame/WarhammerFantasy'' and ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'': This is the fate of those cursed by the Chaos Gods, a hideous assemblage of flesh and random mutations, claws and tentacles. It's also the fate of those ''blessed'' by the Chaos Gods, as receiving too many mutations and gifts from them can utterly destroy the minds of a human whose will is not strong enough to resist it.

* Metamorphosis is a recurring theme in ''Anime/ThisUglyYetBeautifulWorld''. The first half of the series is all about [[{{Fanservice}} Fanservice]] and [[SliceOfLife Slice of Life]] [[XMeetsY meets]] supernatural weirdness. Then CerebusSyndrome and rampant [[ButterflyOfDeathAndRebirth butterfly]] symbolism kick in. [[spoiler: The [[MysteriousWaif mysterious]] MagicalGirlfriend is essentially the AnthropomorphicPersonification of an [[ApocalypseMaiden extinction event]], although there's [[MindScrew more to it than that]].]]

* 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).
