Shapeshifting and transformation are the ability to completely change one's body from one form to another, usually by magic or AppliedPhlebotinum. Common in SpeculativeFiction, and folklore and myths are replete with tales of princes transformed into frogs, gods turning themselves into animals, and so on. Several of these tropes are OlderThanFeudalism.
