* Can happen by default if a shapechanger has a miscast in ''Webcomic/{{Runewriters}}''. A good example is Severian, who at the start of the series is stuck with a set of horns no matter what animal he is. This later is added onto after a miscast gives him [[spoiler: tentacle hands]].

* This is what changelings look like mid change in ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'', a nightmarish mishmash of limbs, tails and teeth as well as the [[spoiler: struggling dissolving form of whatever or whomever they are changing into as it is absorbed into the mess]].

* This is what the Lunar Knack "Hybrid Body Re-Arrangement" is for in {{Exalted}}. It allows the Lunar to, instead of shifting completely into a new form, shift only parts of his body into something. A Lunar in shark form could turn its tail fin into a mass of tentacles, its left breast fin into a crab's claw, and the right breast fin into a human arm to wield its favourite sword, while it grows three pairs of giant spider legs and a pair of lungs before topping it off with feathered wings...

* Aptom from ''{{Guyver}}'' can ([[BodyHorror quite graphically]]) absorb Zoanoids into himself to take on their form and powers, but for combat he usually takes on a unique form which combines as many of the best traits he has 'eaten' as possible, which he updates from time to time. While these hybrid forms are generally quite sleek in appearance (sometimes moreso than the original creatures), [[MindControl "Evil Aptom"]] looks more like a traditional abomination due to his controller not fully understanding how Aptom's body works.

* A common theory about ''MetroidFusion'' is that the [[EvilTwin SA-X]]'s [[OneWingedAngel penultimate form]] is this (it resembles a Hornoad, the previous form of the X that infected Samus).

* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban'', Professor Lupin notes this as a potential weakness of boggarts, which are magical creatures that change shape to become the greatest fear of anyone facing them. It therefore pays to approach them in groups, to confuse them; Lupin tells of a boggart who once tried to scare two people at once. One person was afraid of flesh-eating slugs, the other was afraid of headless corpses; the boggart turned into half a slug and didn't scare anyone at all.

* Kefka in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' has a half dozen penultimate bosses who are all merged into a grotesque spire of amalgamated shapes.

to:

* Kefka in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' has a half dozen penultimate bosses who are all merged into a grotesque spire of amalgamated shapes. Notably, many of them are clearly modeled on the ''heroes'', making it feel a bit like a ShapeshifterGuiltTrip. The most infamous is the stage right before battling Kefka himself - it's Terra, the heroine, holding Kefka himself in a PietaPlagiarism. That this image appears in a tower constructed by Kefka says a ''lot'' about how far his mind has collapsed.

* Krahka attempts to become a fusion of the Toa Metru in ''{{Bionicle}}'', but she is unable to control their combined powers.
** Also done by [[BigBad the Makuta]], on two occasions: first, he [[FusionDance fused with]] three other characters, and ended up being a monstrous combination of their features (In the comics, books and his toy-form, at least. Subverted in TheMovie, where they simply slapped wings to his pre-existing animation model.) The second example is his AlternateUniverse-self, who merged with his entire Brotherhood, to become the only living Makuta.

* [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'', where Terry's facing the genetic engineer responsible for the [[LegoGenetics splicing]] craze, who's injected himself with the DNA of three forms to become an apex predator. Terry then injects him with [[PhlebotinumOverload a whole fistful of syringes]], and... [[BodyHorror hoo boy]].
