* Downplayed in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid''. Iruru is fully capable of assuming her true form as well as changing her human guise, but she isn't very good at finer control of her shapeshifting, so she ends up looking like a petite girl with ridiculous breasts and dragon claws, which is the best she can manage. Tohru states that if she relaxes her control her GagBoobs would get bigger, but would presumably end up with more inhuman features in turn. Thus, Iruru basically has to stay the way she is now to fit in until she can get better control of her shape.

** In ''[[FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance]]'', it's revealed that [[spoiler: MadScientist Izuka used a PsychoSerum to force Rajaion, a Dragon Laguz Prince, to stay in his dragon form ''and'' make him go insane. From then on he was enslaved by Izuka's boss Ashnard, who used poor Rajaion as his Dragon Mount. He was only released by the time Ashnard was slain in battle... but by then he was so weakened and wounded that he died almost immediately afterwards.]]

* In ''Literature/VoidCity'', one of the magical properties of the bullets fired by the gun ''El Alma Perdida'' is to prevent all forms of shapeshifting. John Paul Courtney would use it to prevent werewolves he killed from reverting to their human forms upon death, thus making it apparent that he had killed monsters rather than men.

**A bigger problem for George in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', to the point where he becomes afraid to use his ring lest it die completely and trap him in some other form. And, indeed, Mode Lock kills him when he gets thrown into the Hungry Sea and can't change. [[spoiler: He gets better real quick.]]

** In ''[[Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF Resurrection F]], this trope is thoroughly averted. Frieza is resurrected in his Cyborg form (albeit chopped to bits), is back in his first form after being healed, skips to his final form when his fight with Goku begins, assumes his Golden Form when he starts losing, and is ultimately beaten so badly by Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta that he reverts to his final form before being vaporized and sent back to Hell.
** In the Buu Saga, Old Kai warns Goku that [[FusionDance fusing]] via the Potara earrings while in Super Saiyan form will lead to the fusion being unable to power down, and the strain that Super Saiyan puts on the body could prove lethal. [[spoiler:Much later on in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', when Future Zamasu and Goku Black fuse into Fusion Zamasu, Goku Black is in his Super Saiyan Rosé form at the time... which doesn't matter, because Fusion Zamasu inherited Future Zamasu's CompleteImmortality.]]

** Cell temporarily reverts to his Semi-Perfect form after Super Saiyan 2 Gohan beats him so hard he regurgitates Android 18. Though after his attempt to RageQuit and [[TakingYouWithMe take Earth with him]] is foiled, he regenerates FromASingleCell back into his Perfect form (which his cells somehow "remembered") and [[CameBackStrong gains a power boost from his Saiyan DNA]] which pushes him into his ''[[UpToEleven Super]]'' Perfect form.
