* In the episode "Into the Bunker" of ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', Dipper, Wendy, Soos, and Mabel fight a shapeshifter and eventually push it back into the freezing chamber where it was originally contained. It turns into a flame to try to avoid freezing and tries to use large, muscular forms to break out, making it seem to fit the "survival reflex" variety. Also, when it finally freezes, it turns into Dipper and screams in agony in order to taunt and intimidate him.

* Happened in ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' to a shapeshifter who used his powers to juggle several different women in simultaneous relationships. Being confronted by all of them at once leads to him rapidly changing his appearance to appeal to each one (and to them beating the crap out of him so bad he starts to mix up aspects of the different forms before giving up and showing his true form).

This happens at the start of his last meeting with the party (at least in published material).]] * In the {{Ravenloft}} setting, the doppelganger darklord Sodo is cursed to be in a permanent state of this trope. * Polymorphine, a drug in the [[{{Warhammer40000}} Warhammer 40,000]] universe, induces this by default. The Callidus assassins train themselves over a lifetime to use it for proper shapeshifting.
