* ''Fanfic/TheHeartTrilogy'': The great dragon Smaug is in his human form seven feet tall and toned like a warrior, and he retains his eye color of golden fire as well as the [[spoiler:scar inflicted on his chest by Bard's Black Arrow]].

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12023508/1/Kaitō-Kokoro Kaitō Kokoro]]'': Feliciano noticed a ''strong'' resemblence between Kiku's and Nihon's eyes. [[spoiler:It's because they are one in the same.]]
-->A jovial laugh rang out. "Well, I highly doubt there are any other Clouded Leopards that are black all over and have bodies five feet long." Piercing ebon orbs widened as his cheeks were cupped, brought close to hazel. "But his most memorable feature is his black eyes...which look so much like yours." Realization dawned on him. "They look exactly like yours! I wonder why?"

-->"M-Maybe it's just a coincidence?!" This is not good! Not good at all!

Additionally, Orpheus, the main character's initial Persona, has his or her same face, and when Thanatos and Orpheus combine, the resulting [[spoiler:Messiah]] shares traits from both.

** ''VideoGame/Persona5'': While there's no transformation involved, most of the party's GuardianEntity other selves mirror their appearance in some way:
*** Arsène shares the protagonist's penchant for classy attire and black and red color scheme. Tying into the mask motif, Arsène looks to have a mask for a face.
*** Carmen has twintails like Ann, but makes them [[MegaTwintails much larger]]. She also wears a panther mask, copying Ann's [[AnimalMotifs cat motif]].
*** The NoseArt on Captain Kidd's boat mirrors Ryuji's own [[ScaryTeeth razor sharp teeth]] in his All-Out Attack portrait, and Ryuji's skull mask obviously references Captain Kidd being a skeleton.
*** Both Morgana and Zorro are comically [[TopHeavyGuy top heavy]]. In a more traditional shapeshifting example, Morgana, naturally, shares his fur color and patterns between his humanoid and house cat forms. Less noticeably, his house cat collar is the same yellow as the bandana he wears in his other form.

** In ''Discworld/TheLastContinent'', the Librarian gets a magical illness that makes him turn into all kinds of things, ''all'' of which have shaggy red fur. This includes a book, various pieces of furniture, and [[spoiler:a ''dolphin.'']] For added hilarity, his orangutan form isn't even his original shape (he was once human). Apparently he's been an orangutan for so long that it's permanently imprinted on his morphic resonance field.
** In the TV adaption of ''Discworld/TheColourOfMagic'', the Librarian's human form has a thick auburn beard. He really does look like he's ''waiting'' to turn into an orangutan.
