* In the fifth story line of ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', the Toa Metru are captured and injected with [[TheCorruption Hordika venom]], which turns them into [[BeastMan half-animals]]. [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] in that while greatly increasing their physical strength, it also degrades their elemental abilities to some extent. The real downside however is they can't use any masks of power.

* Zarbon in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' has a powerful second form, but it makes him look fat and ugly (whereas his normal form is a GorgeousGeorge type), so as a matter of vanity he avoids using it.

* Veran of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames The Legend Of Zelda: Oracle of Ages]]'' has three OneWingedAngel forms ''beyond'' her true form as an evil fairy, but as they are rather grotesque -- being [[BigCreepyCrawlies giant insects]] [[BeastWithAHumanFace with her face]] -- she's loath to use them until backed into a corner.

--> -- '''Zarbon''', ''Anime/DragonBallZ''

A Power Upgrading Deformation will make a character or creature much stronger but also make them look at the [[UncannyValley least]] [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman inhuman]] and at the [[BodyHorror worst]] [[EldritchAbomination horrendous]]- and the process isn't likely to be [[PainfulTransformation pleasant]] or [[TransformationHorror pretty]] either.

The deformation may be a mix of: permanent (requiring a cure to remove) or temporary (granting a SuperMode), and perfectly stable (no more {{muta|nt}}tions) or continuously changing (risking falling to TheCorruption or PowerDegeneration). Because its effects are so nasty taking it tends to be treated as a GodzillaThreshold, with [[EmergencyTransformation only the direst of situations meriting it]]. Villains like the MadScientist and EvilutionaryBiologist will delight in kidnapping victims to use this on... usually paired with a MindControlDevice of course! [[note]](Can't have a PhlebotinumRebel, now can we?)[[/note]] On the other hand, some villains may [[ProfessorGuineaPig take it themselves]], become a OneWingedAngel and proclaim AGodAmI! Truly, EvilMakesYouMonstrous. Mind the ClippedWingAngel from overdosing.

** ''VideoGame/{{Bioshock Infinite}}'' has Vigors, later revealed to be derived from early Plasmids. Vigors are drinkable plasmids that give the user powers similar to the first two games and generally serve the same roles with Possession/Hypnotize, Murder of Crows/Insect Swarm, Shock Jockey/Elecro Bolt, etc. Other Tonics introduce new attacks that serve as support in combat like Bucking Bronco[[note]]levitates foes[[/note]], Return to Sender[[note]]pulls in bullets to create an explosive cluster[[/note]], and Undertow[[note]]creates a water tentacle to catch and throw your opponents[[/note]]. All of these warp Booker's hands to match their abilities and they were going to cause people to turn into Vigor Junkies, people who turned into Splicers from excessive ingestion of Vigors but instead of tumorous growths they gained massive crystals growing out of their bones and skin. Characters such as the Zealots of the Lady and Cornelius Slate[[note]]He was intended to be a moderate Vigor Junkie, which explains why he has those growths on his head[[/note]], while early artwork was integrated as Frosty Splicers, who overdosed on the "Old Man Winter" Plasmid.

* Mutating in ''VideoGame/{{Cataclysm}}'' carries this as a downside. Each mutation has a visibility and ugliness rating, and visibly mutated players may have a harder time talking with other survivors.

* In the live action ''Film/StreetFighter'' movie, the project behind creating Blanca is basically an attempt at creating mutant {{Super Soldier}}s and brainwashing them.

* The Zoanoids in ''{{Guyver}}'' are basically mutated humans whose new (revolting) forms are always tailored to give them a specific strength or super attack. [[MonsterLord Zoalords]] are however higher on the BishonenLine and look far less ugly than their underlings.
