** In fact, if the battle is between two trainers who only have Dittos, the battle will ''never'' end (unless one Ditto is holding a harmful item). Normally, if two Pokemon are incapable of damaging each other, all you have to do is wait for them to run out of Power Points (using a move uses up 1 PP for that move, and can be replenished for free at a Pokemon Center), and then they will start using Struggle (which damages both Pokemon). But when Transform is used, the PP of all the copied moves is set to 5. Thus, using Transform on a Ditto will replenish your Ditto's PP, preventing either Ditto from using Struggle. And since you can't run from Trainer battles, you have to reset the game. (Thankfully, this was fixed in VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl, as it is now impossible to transform into a transformed Pokémon.)

* The [[Myth/CelticMythology Welsh myth]] of Ceridwen and Taliesin has one that ends in a pretty unusual way. After being repeatedly foiled, Taliesin becomes a grain of wheat to [[NeedleInAStackOfNeedles hide among all the other grain]], but Ceridwen just becomes a hen and eats all of it. Then, because symbolism in mythology is more important than anatomical feasibility, she gives birth to him. Having become his mother, she can't bring herself to kill him and merely [[MosesInTheBullrushes casts him out to sea in a bag to be found and raised]].

* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'': Cosmo and Wanda have a "magic fight" in one episode, and it does involve shapeshifting - only instead of turning themselves into stronger forms, they turn their opponents into undesirable forms.
