* In the ''NightsDawnTrilogy'', the possessed tend to be extreme Sense Freaks. It turns out that spending a lot of time [[SenseLossSadness without any senses at all]] makes ''any'' kind of sensation something to be treasured.

* The aliens in ''{{Roswell}}'' put Tabasco sauce on ''everything''. It may have been just for the taste, but could conceivably have helped them maintain human form (you never forget your first [[EpilepticTrees Epileptic Tree]]).

* Another nonhuman form example. At one point in [[CliffordSimak Cliff Simak]]'s ''City'', scientists are researching the innermost layers of Jupiter, and discover a pitch-black, windblasted "surface" of sorts at pressures so high that the most rugged machines can barely stay together long enough to examine it. Humanity has by this time invented a means to upload one's mind into a variety of creatures temporarily, and there are simple slug-like animals roaming the Jovian surface. When this is done, the explorers find that Jupiter's surface through the senses of a slug-thing is practically an euphoric wonderland of hedonism, and Earth is practically depopulated in an overnight exodus to Jovian slugdom.

* Inverted with a TearJerker in ''Film/SupermanII--'' Superman has [[BroughtDownToNormal depowered himself]] for Lois. He then gets in a fistfight with a bully to defend her honor -- and discovers what pain is like. He seems as much ''surprised'' as anything: "Blood! My blood..."
** Of course, he underwent the transformation so he and Lois could have a, um, very different sort of human sensual experience.
** Inverted in ''Film/ManOfSteel,'' where when [[HumanAliens essentially human]] Kryptonians gain superhuman senses like X-Ray vision, it's so terrifyingly overwhelming as to debilitate them until they get used to it.

* In ''Anime/SailorMoon'', Green Esmarude- your typical {{Vain Sorceress}} strolls into a fancy shin-dig, causing heads to turn at her hot elegance - until she discovered the food table, there she immediately matches [[BigEater Usagi]] dessert for dessert in stuffing her face. This caused her extreme embarrassment once she snaps out of it.

* While she was an EnergyBeing ''possessing'' a human, and not transforming into one, the Phoenix Force in the '''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'' cartoon fits this trope to a T; after possessing Jean Gray to fulfill her duty to protect the M'Krann Crystal, the cosmic entity became duly aware of the human senses she now had access to, becoming addicted to them and opening herself up to be manipulated by an evil BDSM mutant group (no, seriously) and turning evil, herself. She was only stopped after Jean had been killed, cutting the Phoenix Force off from the mortal's senses and reverting her back to her normal self.

* In the WesternAnimation/{{Gravity Falls}} ''Sock Opera'' episode, Bill takes over the body of [[spoiler:Dipper]]. He immediately seems impressed with having ''two'' eyes, commenting that "this thing's deluxe!". Unfortunately, he becomes incredibly focused on the ''pain'' aspect of touching and proceeds to injure and generally abuse the body he's inhabiting - including repeatedly closing a kitchen drawer shut on his hand, purposely falling down stairs and ''impaling a fork'' into his arm, while gleefully announcing, "Pain is hilarious!" He then discovers a negative part of having a physical body that he never considered that ruins his whole plan: [[spoiler:fatigue]].
