* In ''Literature/{{Below}}'', Gareth uses a dangerously unpredictable [[TransformationRay wand of polymorphosis]] against goblins that outnumber the party, hoping to turn some of them into creatures that slow the others down. Then one hit turns a goblin into a cockatrice that can instantly petrify anyone on contact, and the goblins manage to drive it towards the party. Oops. [[spoiler:Jase holds it off, but it hits him with its tail. At least he ends up in a heroic pose.]]

* In Mike Wilks' puzzle book ''The Ultimate Alphabet''[[note]] A kind of I-spy game in which the reader has to identify dozens or hundreds of objects beginning with a given letter in each painting, resulting in a great many surreal juxtapositions. Caution: like TVTropes, this book may ruin your life![[/note]], [[http://chamberart.net/archive/M/Mike%20Wilks/Mike%20Wilks%20(20).jpg the "L" painting]] features the face of a weeping statue with living eyes, portraying (among other things) ''Lady'', ''Looking'' and ''Lachrymation''. Several other figures in the painting appear to be in the process of turning to stone, but curiously the answers given in ''The Annotated Ultimate Alphabet'' don't include a word defined by this (''Lithofaction'', perhaps?)
