** Elves have VoluntarShapesshifting as a race ability and can shift all their body parts independently. They can mix and match as long as they know how to make all the parts work together.

** Andalites know a technique called a ''Frolis Maneuver,'' which allowed Ax [[spoiler:and Elfangor]] to create new human morphs by mixing the DNA of multiple individuals. It is unknown if one can use this to mix different species, however.

* Daine from ''[[Literature/TortallUniverse The Immortals]]'' can partially or fully change into any animal as part of her powers. Notably, when she's pregnant, she's forced to constantly shift the shape of her lower body, so that the fetus, which has inherited the powers, doesn't rip though it somehow.

* In the ''Literature/KateDaniels'' series, the more dominant weres have enough control to assume what is called a "warrior form", halfway between human and animal form. From descriptions, it's pretty grotesque. One character, Andrea is a rare creature called a beastkin. She is the offspring of a werehyena and a hyenawere, and the result is that while she can't take the shape of a hyena, she effortlessly assumes something like the warrior form, but with a seamless blend of human and animal traits.

One interesting thing about the Partial Transformation is it's usually a "high level" technique that can be mastered only by the best shapeshifters. A character who has recently acquired VoluntaryShapeshifting must first learn how to shapeshift between their "basic" forms before they have ''any'' hope of mixing and matching the elements between them; attempting to selectively invoke this without sufficient experience can result in some ... [[BodyHorror messy]] [[GoneHorriblyWrong consequences]].

** Rahne Sinclair could change into a wolf or a transitional state between human and wolf. While still a member of the ComicBook/NewMutants, she was captured and taken to Genosha, where she was turned into a "mutate" slave with no free will of her own. When she was rescued, she found that using her powers restored her free will, but reverting to full-human form put her back in the "mutate" state, so she spent pretty much her entire run as a member of Comicbook/{{X-Factor}} in the transitional state, until the Genoshans' damage could be undone.

** [[Franchise/SpiderMan Sandman's]] most common form of offense is to shift his arms into sand weapons in a style similar to [[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay the T-1000]] (although Sandman was already doing this in the comics 2-3 decades before the ''Franchise/{{Terminator}} films were made). It is also not uncommon for him to assume a giant humanoid sand monster form during battle.

*** All werecreatures (AKA lycanthropes) have human, animal and hybrid forms, though it's harder to enter hybrid form than animal form.
*** Shapeshifters in 3.5 can also enter the warshaper PrestigeClass, who can use this ability to sprout claws, enhance his strength, [[HealingFactor heal his injuries]], and shift his vital organs around.
*** The Aranea was a giant spellcasting spider which could change to either a normal humanoid, or a humanoid with concealed fangs and spinnerets.

* VideoGame/{{Blazblue}}, the resident BattleButler, Valkenhayn R. Hellsing has this ability. He's a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Werewolf]] can transform various parts of his body into one, or even into an actual wolf. Its kinda similar to how the Zoan Devil Fruits from OnePiece work.

* In ''Literature/LoyalEnemies'', werewolf Shelena can partially transform certain parts of her body when in human form, like letting her [[NaturalWeapon claws and teeth grow]], or adjusting her eyes to gain better vision in the dark. Veres points out that this is highly unusual and other werewolves cannot do that.

* Most of the dragons in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' seem to prefer this, [[HornedHumanoid keeping their horns visible]] while they're in human form. They can also morph their claws, wings, tails, and presumably any other body part they choose.
