* [[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.

* In ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'', the Flood has a pure form (which aren't based on an individual infected being) which can change its shape for various functions. Interestingly, the mobile form is quite small and light, but it can change into a large "tank" form in a few seconds which is significantly more massive, and its shooter form should be losing mass as it shoots, but it has no effect on its ability to change again.

** Humorously addressed in the cinema prologue to "Deep Breath". Strax, recounting the Doctor's incarnations, notes the rather obvious height difference between Six and Seven and wonders what happened to the rest of him.

* Handwaved in ''Literature/TheHalfBloodChronicles'', by Creator/MercedesLackey and Creator/AndreNorton. Dragons shapeshifting to a smaller form have to shunt their extra mass into an extraplanar space they call [[{{Hammerspace}} the Out]]. A dragon in human form, when viewed in the magical spectrum, can be seen as a human surrounded by a dragony "shadow". This shunting also takes a certain level of skill on the dragon's part. Taking a form that's the same size as the dragon in question is simple, taking a form as small as a human or elf is a challenge.

* Subverted in the lesser known manga ''Momoiro 1/10'' -- The titular girl is 50 foot tall and weighs several tons. When she's shrunken to the size of a normal human, she still weighs several tons and is denser than lead. Trying to walk across the top floor of her school causes the floor to collapse, running across a parking lot causes a trail of destroyed concrete, etc etc.

* In ''Manga/DetectiveConan'', the APTX-4869 toxin has a million-to-one chance will [[FountainOfYouth deage]] a victim back to when they're 8 years old. This is explained that it causes apoptosis to occur within non-neural cells, so that a large portion of tissue gets killed off and simply evaporates away. Shinichi described the sensation like his bones melting. However this doesn't explain how the re-aging antidote causes the mass to return.

* The Invaders in Shin Manga/GetterRobo Armageddon. For example, in one episode, the main characters respond to a distress signal from the ruins of New York City. When they get to the origin of the signal, they find two puppies and a dead person at a radio station, but the puppies afterwards turn out to be a pair of ''building-sized'' Invaders from a larger group that set a trap.
