* There's a ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' card for everything: [[http://ww2.wizards.com/Gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?name=Form%20of%20the%20Dragon Form of the Dragon]]. The card has found a home in at least one successful combo deck (Enduring Ideal) as a powerful finisher.
** The ''Eventide'' set gave us [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=157401 Snakeform]], which has the (temporary) [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin obvious effect]] on the affected creature...which in the process [[BalefulPolymorph loses all its special abilities for the duration and generally becomes much weaker as well.]] So you obviously shouldn't be using it on ''your'' creatures...

* In Disney's ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', [[BigBad Jafar]] transforms into a humongous snake after gaining sorcerer powers from the Genie. He actually has Aladdin and company on the ropes for quite a while until Al tricks him into trying to gain even more power by using his last wish to [[BecomingTheGenie become a Genie, and Jafar is sealed inside a new lamp]]. In hindsight, Jafar should have stuck to the reptile form.

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'': When [[EldritchAbomination cherubs]] [[BizarreAlienReproduction mate]], they each grow into a serpentine form that is ''one astronomical unit'' (149,597,871 km, or the distance between the Sun and Earth) in length. Then, in great [[TheMasochismTango hatred]], they wage an epic battle around a black hole, and they conclude this battle with a position shaped like AURYN from TheNeverendingStory. It is implied, then, that this form is at least incorporated into Lord English's OneWingedAngel.

* Averted in ''Disney/AladdinTheReturnOfJafar'', the ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'' games, and in some of the storybooks however, where he is instead either fought as a human, or immediately goes straight to becoming a genie.

* Averted in ''Disney/AladdinTheReturnOfJafar'', the ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'' games, and in some of the storybooks however, where he is instead either fought as a human, or immediately goes straight to becoming a genie. Played straight in the [[VideoGame/AladdinCapcom Super Nintendo]] and [[VideoGame/AladdinVirginGames Sega Genesis]] games, however, which both use his snake form as the FinalBoss and omit the second OneWingedAngel form of the Genie.

* Malchior in ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', though he didn't so much transform into a dragon as he was transformed back to his real form. It still doesn't help him much.

* Malchior in ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', though he didn't so much transform into a dragon as he was transformed back to his real form. It still doesn't help him much.much (technically he was handing the entire Titan team [[CurbStompBattle their asses]], but it slipped his mind that Raven, the one who unsealed him in the first place due to his manipulations, knew both the spell to put him away again and had the will to do it until she already brought the sealing book up).

A [[SubTrope specific variant]] of OneWingedAngel. [[JustForFun/IThoughtItMeant If you're looking for]] video game characters being shown as grotesquely oversized compared to their surroundings on an overview map, that's over at UnitsNotToScale. Also not to be confused with MakeMyMonsterGrow.

* In the ''Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain'', when EvilOverlord Arawn, (based on the Celtic God of the Dead, who shares the name), master of terrible armies and incomprehensible BlackMagic is finally confronted face to face, he promptly turns into a serpent and dies within a paragraph or two, managing only to kill the slightly less evil queen before falling to everyone's favorite assistant pig keeper.
