** The Redstinger changes its form depending on its position on the lawn. When it's near the house, it will be a GlassCannon. Near the middle, it gains extra defense but fires half as fast as a JackOfAllStats. When it's far from the house, it will become a StoneWall unable to attack. However, it's quite bad at defending, as it's unable to take as much damage as a proper wall.

* ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'': While each of the kids have their own unique morphs, there are several occasions when they've morphed the same animal (sometimes to exploit the fact that the animal goes into a stupor when being acquired, long enough for them to escape, like the hammerhead shark or the TRex). The inverse of the trope bites them in the ass when they attack the Yeerk pool all in polar bear morph and nearly die.

*** [[TheLancer Specter]]: JackOfAllStats (base form), FragileSpeedster (Tutankhamun), GlassCannon (Nobunaga), and LightningBruiser (Houdini). He also semi-regularly borrows Ghost's Edison Damashii for a MagicKnight form. He too has a SuperMode called [[DeadlyUpgrade Deep Specter]], and this form can and does make use of other Damashii (which would make Deep Specter a JackOfAllStats compared to Deep Tutankhamun, Deep Nobunaga, etc.).
*** Necrom: JackOfAllStats (base form), MagicKnight (Grimm) and MightyGlacier (Sanzo).

* Druid shapeshifting in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' could be considered this, with forms tailored to each of their four talent specialisations plus a couple of utility forms. The default form (AKA "caster" form) is for the CombatMedic and specialization adds a temporary Tree Form with even more enhanced healing. Cat form is a FragileSpeedster that deals damage. Bear form is a StoneWall specialising in getting attention of enemies from more squishy members of the group. Moonkin form (available via talent specialization; caster form suffices before that) is a GlassCannon SquishyWizard. While all Druids have access to Bear Form and Cat Form, they don't work very well for non-Feral Druids.

* ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'': This is Varian's entire gimmick. He starts out as a MasterOfNone for the first 9 levels, but once he hits 10, he can choose between one of three Heroics to specialize. [[StoneWall Taunt]] increases his health but lowers his attack speed and gives him a brief stun ability, [[GlassCannon Colossus Smash]] increases his attack damage but lowers his health and gives him an armour-weakening leap, and [[GradualGrinder Twin Blades of Fury]] increases his attack speed but lowers attack damage and gives him extra movement speed after he hits a basic attack. Each of them are watered-down versions of the archetypal character of that role, and Varian's strength comes from his ability to fill any slot his team needs.

* ''Videogame/MegaManZX Advent'': This game allows you to take on the boss' forms after you defeat them. Your normal untransformed form and the bonus form "Model a" are {{Joke Character}}s (armed only with a non-chargeable buster and cannot dash), Mega Man forms are JackOfAllStats, Bifrost form is a MightyGlacier, Argoyle and Hedgeshock forms are {{Fragile Speedster}}s, Buckfire form is a LightningBruiser, Queenbee and Vulturon forms are {{Stone Wall}}s (with their weak attacks and ability to fly, Queenbee is longer-ranged while Vulturon is shorter-ranged), and Chronoforce and Rospark are gimmicky[[note]]Chronoforce cannot move or attack on land, but swims freely in water and shoots icicles, it has protective carapace on his back, and has the ability to [[BulletTime slow down time]]; Rospark moves slowly on land and cannot jump high, but upon climbing up ropes, it transforms into its true form, which can move around ropes and shoot spreads of thorns[[/note]].

** The [[EvilCounterpart Nemetrix]] from ''Omniverse'' is an even more specialized variation. It's designed to specifically counteract the Omnitrix's aliens with their natural predators. Whatever power or weakness an alien has, the Nemetrix's aliens are either counters or exploiters to/of those powers/weaknesses.
