* The EvilutionaryBiologist Grimsby Roylott turns himself into a giant snake-creature in order to slip into buildings [[AirVentPassageway through the air vents]] in the ''SherlockHolmesInTheTwentySecondCentury'' episode "Scales of Justice" (Holmes aficionados will recognise this plot as being just barely SuggestedBy "The Adventure of the Speckled Band"). It also helps in his fight with Holmes, but not as much as he'd hoped.

This trope is not strictly limited for the bad guys. However, when it's the good guys doing this, they typically turn into dragons instead of snakes. Note that since Disney's ''Sleeping Beauty'', many villains have also turned into fire-breathing dragons.

** This also occurs in [[Film/{{Maleficent}} her movie]], [[spoiler: with the exception that her raven Diaval is instead the one to do so.]]

* Played straight by a female Dark One at the conclusion of ''The Wizard of Sunset Strip''. Probably a tribute to ''Sleeping Beauty'', as the battle in question takes place at a reconstructed Disneyland.

* No pity for [[MegaManStarForce Luna]]? Especially after she's forced into this due to the [=FMian=] Ophiuchus hijacking her? Thankfully, Geo [[IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight beats her back to normal]] and Gemini slaughters the smug snake, but still...
** On a side note, why wasn't [[DrillHair Luna's hair]] as Queen Ophiuca/Ophiuchus Queen used as a weapon? It was ''visibly rotating!''

* The ''WesternAnimation/DefendersOfTheEarth'' episode "Dracula's Potion" also contains a rare example of one of the heroes turning into a snake. The titular potion transforms most of the Defenders into the animals which best reflect their personalities; in Mandrake's case, the animal in question is a cobra.
