* In ''VideoGame/MegaManZero4'': Dr. Weil, when undergoing his final transformation, has tubes being jammed into him (with copious amounts of blood in the Japanese version), and shouting something that roughly translates from Japanese as either "Can you see this Pain?! You'll never understand any of it?!" or "Can you understand pain such as this?!". The drama tapes even include him screaming and grunting in pain as he transforms in such a way that could be considered NightmareFuel.

* Puberty, 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.
* And that's only if your puberty is "normal." 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.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'': From the look of it, Sunset Shimmer's transformation into a demon isn't enjoyable. The moment she put the crown on and it starts, she looks worried; after that she is crying, then yelling, her face twisted in pain.

''Friendship Games'' has Sunset admitting she was "overwhelmed" by the magic in pain.the crown, so it's likely she was in pain as well.



* In ''Film/TheAvengers'', the Hulk's first transformation looks excruciating and takes a long time, because Banner is fighting it the whole time. The second time, he transforms intentionally and it only takes one smooth second, with no thrashing or screaming.

* Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse:
**
In ''Film/TheAvengers'', ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'', two of these occur.
*** Firstly, Johann Schmidt: he is shown injecting himself with the unfinished SuperSerum in a flashback -- fire then burns around him and it cuts to his face clearly in pain and screaming, turning into the ComicBook/RedSkull.
*** Secondly, Steve Rogers. During Project Rebirth, he has the serum and Vita-Rays pumped through his body -- about half way through the procedure it becomes a lot more intense and he is heard screaming from within the pod. The scientists immediately get up to shut down the machine -- but Steve yells at them to keep going despite the pain (becoming a ''[[HeroicBuild freaking man mountain]]'' when it's done).

* ''WesternAnimation/AvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'':
** The Avengers endure some painful transformations in the episode "Gamma World", as part of The Leader's plan to turn everyone in the world into Gamma-irritated monsters. Comicbook/IronMan's pain receives particular emphasis, as the animators show the toll the gamma blast takes on his shrapnel-embedded heart.
