* In ''Literature/VoidCity'', vampires have the power to shapeshift into one or more animals, but how it works varies between individuals. Some are able to take their clothes with them, while others have to leave their clothes behind. Eric actually generates new clothing: even if he starts out naked, he'll be in his usual casual clothes when he changes back. As a result, he's accumulated tons of identical outfits. Everyone just accepts it as a natural part and parcel of a vampire's magic powers.

* [[UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein Einstein's]] famous formula E = m * c^2 basically states that mass is a form of energy. (Granted, that's putting it rather simply, but still.) As energy can change form, it is perfectly possible to convert energy into mass or vice versa. Slam an electron and a positron[[labelnote:*]] The antimatter equivalent of an electron[[/labelnote]] together at sufficient speeds (that is, with enough kinetic energy), and you may well get two muons, which are ''200 times'' as heavy.
** But that will violate the conservation of charge.

* ''Disgustingly'' averted in the ''TabletopGame/{{Splicers}}''' Metamorph class: In order to change into a larger shape, the Splicer must consume ''twice'' the mass of the intended form in protein. This included translucent sacks that fill up to hold the extra meat. This then forms into a cocoon for the Metamorph to change inside of.To shift to a size ''down'', the Metamorph simply uses the body as a cocoon, then the new form [[ChestBurster bursts out of the old body in a spay of blood and gore]].

* ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'': Where does all that sudden biomass come from? And where does it go? In the first ''Film/{{Hulk}}'' movie (Not the one with Norton), every time Banner is seen returning to human form, we see steam emanating from him and water dripping from every pore of his body, slicking his hair to his head and soaking the MagicPants to him. The suggestion seems to be that the excess mass is created by rapid cell division and when he calms down, the cells are turned into steam/water and are shed thusly. It wouldn't be the strangest thing to happen in a Marvel movie, but cell division does not actually ''create'' mass.\\\

** The same could be said for The Charger in ''VideoGame/Left4Dead2'', where his arm has become massive and covered with callouses.
** The Smoker, and to a lesser extent the Spitter, has somehow become ''much'' taller than an average human and the Smoker's tongue has stretched out to absurd lengths, ''if'' that really ''is'' its tongue...
** The Boomer is an aversion as his girth is all gas; his and her bodies have become swollen with noxious gas and "puke" that fills up in large boils across their body.

* [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever Size]] [[IncredibleShrinkingMan Fetish]] [[FetishFuel fap materials]] have characters [[CaptainObvious changing size]] due to GreenRocks, a ShrinkRay, [[AWizardDidIt magic]], [[MadScientist Science!]], [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs magic science]], [[ExcusePlot the plot says so]], etc. How can they do this is largely brushed off because, well, it's ''[[RuleThirtyFour porn]]''. Sometimes a writer may give an explanation on the extra mass but the baggage is largely ignored for purposes of the story because we all know that [[SciFiWritersHave/NoSenseOfMass porn artists/writers hate math]]. And this is before you get into how big/small they are in relation to everything else.

* Contrary to what the page image would have you believe, Erza from fairytale does not in fact carry all her armor with her, she does however have a trunk at home containing her armors and cosplay outfits, which she sends and recieves her armors to and from.

** 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.
