* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' has Ben go up against an alien that made a copy of the Omnitrix. Their fight involved just about all of Ben's forms between them. (Except [[AwesomeButImpractical Alien X]], naturally).

* A variation appears in ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' where Magica [=DeSpell=] had a bag of powder that turns whatever the powder is sprinkled on to whatever the err... [[PettingZooPeople person]] wants. The climax is the Triplets and the Beagle Boys playing keep away with the bag and transforming their sibling to counter whatever the other group did with the powder. It was awesome.

** Played straight in PeterDavid's ExpandedUniverse novel, "The Siege." David even mentions this in the introduction, noting that he wasn't restrained by a live-action TV show's budget.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'', "Clayfaces", invokes this trope when the original, reformed Clayface (Ethan Bennett) tries to stop the new homicidal Clayface (Basil Karlo). Despite Karlo's abilities being apparently stronger, Bennett holds his own until finally subduing Karlo long enough for Batman to give them both the cure for their mutations.

* Shapeshifting demons are common in TheBartimaeusTrilogy, being summoned by magicians to do their bidding. While they're rarely set against one another directly (the last time someone tried to order a demon to kill another one, it turned out they were friends, and the demon refused the order... [[StuffBlowingUp destroying himself and quite a bit of his surroundings]] as a side effect), fights are still fairly common as a side effect of whatever they're all trying to do. In these fights, plenty of shapeshifting goes on, of course.

** In fact, if the battle is between two trainers who only have Dittos, the battle will ''never'' end (unless one Ditto is holding a harmful item). Normally, if two Pokemon are incapable of damaging each other, all you have to do is wait for them to run out of Power Points (using a move uses up 1 PP for that move, and can be replenished for free at a Pokemon Center), and then they will start using Struggle (which damages both Pokemon). But when Transform is used, the PP of all the copied moves is set to 5. Thus, using Transform on a Ditto will replenish your Ditto's PP, preventing either Ditto from using Struggle. And since you can't run from Trainer battles, you have to reset the game. (Thankfully, this was fixed in VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl, as it is now impossible to transform into a transformed Pokémon.)
