* An especially horrifying example in Creator/HPLovecraft's "The Shunned House". As the monster (a sort of vampire that feeds off its victims' life energy rather than blood) dies, it displays the faces of its victims, ending with the narrator's beloved uncle, who had tried to help him destroy it.

* In the ComicBook/DisneyComics adaptation of the ''Dracula'' storyline, Dracula had a great deal more shapes than just a bat, a man and a wolf. In the climax, as the protagonists complete a ritual to rob him of all his powers, he frantically goes through all the shapes he can think of trying to escape. However, since it wasn't a ''deadly'' ritual ([[NeverSayDie Disney oblige]]), the hilarious result is that it takes effect at the most embarassing time imaginable, trapping Dracula as a [[MixAndMatchCritters slippers-wearing flying ostrich with a wolf head]] for all of eternity.
