* ''HitmenForDestiny'' has a [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/thorsby/destiny/series.php?view=archive&chapter=27061 trantoros]] which can turn themselves into rocks for extended periods of time, but can't move during that period. A few strips later, they're used as projectiles and as a perpetual motion machine.

** You do get to see the effects of the other people/creatures who stood in the way of medusa, you can restore them, unfortunatly all but one (a sphinx) will attack you the instant they are freed.

* In ''{{Bionicle}}'' the Matoran in the realm of Karzahni would be turned to stone if they even so much as ''stopped in one spot for a break'', and were forced to remain working at all times. It doubles as NightmareFuel and AndIMustScream because it is implied that that the petrified Matoran's consciousness gets transferred into the rock they were standing on while their bodies were petrified. The rocky ground in some areas of his realm screams if stepped on because of this.

* In ''TheDresdenFiles'', [[spoiler: Aurora, one of the Queens of the Summer Court, transferred magical power into a person and then turned her to stone to keep the magic from being detected by anyone else. She gets better.]]
* The trope is named but not invoked in a [[HeraldsOfValdemar Valdemar]] novel by MercedesLackey. A rather stoic character makes a pun about his personality, and the fact that people often fail to recognize his role.

* The villainous Absorbing Man (usually a foe of ComicBook/TheAvengers) has a similar ability, and can turn himself into any substance he can touch. Naturally, he usually chooses, stone, steal, concrete or some other strong material, but he becomes very dangerous when he uses the power to assimilate Cap's shield or Thor's hammer.
