** When fighting Gandrayda in ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime 3: Corruption'', she transforms into multiple characters you've already fought over the course of the game. Most of what she transforms into is sensibly around her own size, with the notable exceptions of Ghor and his ''ginormous'' powered-armor, and the massive Berserker Lord. Her scan page states that how she can change size so drastically is unknown.

** Where exactly does Samus stuff her body when she goes Morph Ball? This is at least {{lampshade|Hanging}}d in ''Metroid Prime'', where one of the scans in the Phazon Mines reveals that the pirates attempted to copy morph ball technology, but... well, the results weren't pretty. If you peek in between the two halves of the Morph Ball in the ''Prime'' series it appears to be a case of Samus being converted into PureEnergy.

* Zig-zagged in ''Webcomic/WildeLife'': Clifford's clothes disappear when he turns into a wolf, but his tongue stud stays.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' Beast Boy has been everything from an amoeba to a Diplodocus, yet his base form couldn't weigh much more than 100 pounds. The same likely applies to his comic form. Beast Boy often uses this trope to his advantage. A typical move for him is getting up high with a small bird morph, then becoming an elephant or dinosaur to smash whatever's below him.

*** According to the official RPG, that's exactly what happens. The [[LiteraryAgentHypothesis margin notes from Harry and friends]] specifically mention this as a good adventure hook.

*** According to the official RPG, that's exactly what happens. It's presumably sent to something like a Demesne: a small pocket of the Nevernever under the way of a specific being, which is generally hard to reach unintentionally, as well as uninhabited by anything else.

* In the ''Literature/IronDruidChronicles'', this is HandWaved. Magic disobeys the laws of physics all the time. It works however [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve people believe it works]]. Any since widespread knowledge of the laws of physics is a fairly new thing... yeah. All of the "Old Ways" disregard the laws of physics, such as a druid's shape shifting, or Coyote's resurrection.

* [[CuteBruiser Suika]] [[DrunkenMaster Ibuki]] from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' has the power to manipulate the density of things. Among it's uses, she can [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever grow to an enormous size]] with enough mass to perform {{Ground Pound}}s or turn into a mist (even into a [[OminousFog cloud of mist that envolved the whole region]]). She can also split her mass into smaller sentient versions of herself, each with as much weight as can be expected of their size, but equal strength to the original.

* In Webcomic/SkinDeep some of the monsters are significant bigger in their natural form compared to their disguised human form. This relies on the magic of medallions, which (currently) no-one understands the workings of.
