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.

* [[http://www.mezzacotta.net/owls/?comic=442 This]] ''Webcomic/LightningMadeOfOwls'' strip parodies the Kafka work by having one of the characters transform into Kafka himself
* In Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}, trolls start life as grubs and, through a not-entirely-clear process, grow up to become the horned humanoids we all know and love.

** Downplayed at the end of the third season, in which [[spoiler:the protagonist, 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]].

* In the world of ''Kanojo Ni Naru Hi'' and ''Kanojo Ni Naru Hi Another'' [[FirstLawOfGenderBending some boys metamorphose into girls]] via a natural process called "emergence" when the gender ratios get too skewed. It usually happens to young boys. Teens have a much higher mortality rate and it's invariably fatal for adults. Naturally, the younger it happens the easier it is for everyone to adjust; the kid who emerges halfway through third grade is going to have an easier time of it than a high school senior.

* ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'' features this twice with the Night Elves. Wisps building [[WhenTreesAttack Ancients]] are consumed in the process à la Starcraft (non-Ancient building like moon wells don't use them up), while the Demon Hunter's ultimate spell is ''called'' metamorphosis, temporarily turning him into a demon with several upgrades and stat boosts. The transformation is permanent in Illidan's case, however.
