* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' Albireo Imma's artifact allows for shapeshifting to a wide variety of people, including Gateau Vanderburg, [[spoiler:Takamichi and Asuna's teacher]] and Nagi Springfield. But the robed appearance is what he really looks like.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' plays with this. The show features Gems, a race of aliens with the ability to shapeshift. Each Gem has a form they default to while not actively shapeshifting, typically one that looks human, but with unusual skin tones and hair colors. It's stated that this physical form is technically an illusion--their [[HeartDrive gems]] are their real selves--but they seem to be born humanoid and [[spoiler:Homeworld Gems look humanoid despite little interactions with humans]]. However, when they're extremely injured, they have a chance to ''change'' their default forms when they "regenerate". Each time this happens, they cycle through all their previous default forms. The new default form is usually very similar in appearance to the last, with only a few small changes. Elements of True Form slip in because most gems ''can't'' make large changes to their base form and keep it stable. Amethyst attempting to make her body significantly larger, for example, causes it to start to collapse and deflate. However, at least one gem ([[spoiler:Rose Quartz]]) was able to regenerate with a ''very'' different body and no such problems.

* Freddy Krueger of ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet'' is an accomplished shapeshifter in the dream world, regularly appearing as other people, mechanical devices, and a host of other forms. While he can look however he wants, as a nightmare ghost he prefers to appear as his post-death burnt self, probably to scare his victims. His true form in the real world are his skeletal remains, but it remains to be seen if he even ''has'' a true spectral form.

* Due of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', though as a very effective assassin, the only enemies who've seen her default form don't live long enough to squeal about it. [[spoiler:At least, until Zest proves to be too much for her and promptly kills her to avenge his friend, Regius.]]
* Mr 2 Bon Clay from ''OnePiece'' can only use his most advanced techniques in his default form, because they require perfect knowledge of his body's strengths and limits.

* Jake from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' defaults to the form of a large (roughly half human-sized) bipedal dog. His powers have severe limitations: he can't change his surface coloration, he appears to need to retain eyes, nose, mouth, and ears, and he occasionally mentions having internal organs which can be rearranged but not done away with altogether. He's something of a halfway point between a {{Voluntary Shapeshift|ing}}er and a RubberMan. [[spoiler:As of "Skyhooks II", his true form had been reset to a tall, blue, five-eyed monster. It's unknown if the aforementioned limitations of his powers have been removed, or if he could still resume his original dog form as an example of a preferred form.]]
