* In TheSecretWorld it's not made explicit in actual scenario, but lore clarifies, that turning into Imbued is excruciatingly painful. Worse: it's implied that pain never goes away, just characters grow accustomed to it and stop paying attention, and that's just the beginning.
-->'''The Buzzing''': Breathe, sweetling. This too shall pass. Pains are relative, and this one will become very small, in time.

* Ron Howard wanted something like this originally for the bathtub scene in ''Film/{{Splash}}'' where Madison the mermaid turns into her mermaid form in the bath, but he feared that it would ruin the appeal of the character. But the part where her lower torso bubbles and turns scaly is a bit eerie, but Madison seems pretty relaxed about it.

* Puberty in humans.
** The change is painful on both an emotional and physical basis. Physically, there's everything from hormonal changes that can lead to quite a few issues (everything from PMS/PMDD in girls to aggression and violence in boys, intense hunger combined with either rapid weight gain or the inability to gain weight in both sexes, voice changes in both sexes with girls becoming higher and softer voiced on average and boys generally developing a cracking, squeaky voice that hopefully to them deepens with time, and emotional/mental issues such as depression or anxiety) to the obvious physical changes of menstruation and breast development in girls and sudden, unwanted erections in boys. Oh, and then there's just the "normal" things that can go wrong, such as a sole ovarian cyst in girls or spermatic cord/testicular torsion in boys -- both of which tend to happen ''most'' in puberty when the organs involved are still growing.
* If your puberty is not "normal", it's even more painful. If you're a girl with PCOS or endometriosis, puberty is only the gateway to a lifelong struggle with pain and health problems. If you're a boy with androgen-sensitive epilepsy, you'll soon have your first seizure. If you're spectacularly unlucky, you can develop ovarian or testicular cancer even before you're fully developed. If you're intersex or transgender, it will be an uncomfortable, embarrassing, and potentially mentally scarring to the degree of hellish experience if you're still unsure and/or you are being raised by parents that don't believe people can be intersex or transgender.
* Both gaining and losing weight. Weight gain often sneaks up on most people who are the most prone to it, and it literally can take only a few months to go from "healthy" to "obese" and a few more from "obese" to "morbidly obese". While gaining weight itself often isn't very painful (if it was, it wouldn't be so easy to do so quickly), what it does to your general state of fitness is; you will become less capable of things you were easily capable of before, short of breath faster, in pain faster, and that's not even starting on the emotional damage of being a "fatty" or even an "ex-fatty" from social ostracism. Losing weight involves working out, often until you are in pain or past it if you weren't fit before, diets that are often unappealing at best and starvation at worst (if healthy doesn't work), and if nothing else works, medications with severe side effects, liquid diets, and stomach stapling or banding surgery.

**Bladi Conversion is a [[TheDarkArts a Forbidden Technique]], in part, ''because'' it is painful. The convertor, replaces the genetic information in the converted's blood by overwriting it, in effect, replacing the converted's parents, biologically speaking. [[spoiler: Zettai]] describes it as ''the'' most painful thing she's ever experienced.

* During [[spoiler:Wheatley's]] transformation in ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'', [[spoiler:he]] constantly asks SelfDemonstrating/GLaDOS beforehand if it's going to hurt. When she says yes, [[spoiler:he]], [[GenreSavvy knowing GLaDOS,]] questions whether or not she's just saying that before learning that, for once, she isn't. [[spoiler: It's even more painful for [=GLaDOS=], who can be heard struggling and crying in agony.]]
