* Once while fighting the ComicBook/{{X-Men}}, Doctor Doom had {{Storm}} turned into a decorative statue. Particularly nasty since she was aware, and such an AndIMustScream moment would have been horrifying for someone who ''isn't'' extremely [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes claustrophobic]].

** One Pathfinder monster, the Petrified Maiden, came about when an army of female invaders was turned to stone by a spell by a powerful wizard-king. Petrified Maidens are classed as "monster" rather than "plot hook" or "scenery" because after so long the ghosts of the victims have started possessing their own petrified corpses.

* At the end of UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks, the vastly-powerful [[TheSpectre Spectre]], DC's Spirit of Vengeance was abruptly forbidden to kill anyone by the [[MoralGuardians Comics Code Authority]]. DC's response was to have the Spectre inflict massive TransformationTrauma on his victims instead--the text about the subject mentioned him turning one villain into a burning candle, then snuffing the flame, while accompanying panels depicted him turning another into inanimate sand. Just kill me, please!!!

* In {{Sonic the Comic}}, an incarnation of the gorgon Medusa turns mercenaries Prank and Totem Billy to stone with her gaze. When she uses her gaze on their teammate Kalus, who is already made of stone, he crumbles to sand instead.

** The 'Frozen' status effect in the main and 'Mystery Dungeon' series is functionality this trope. The status in both series render the victim completely immobile, and in the Generation 1 games, lasted indefinitely -- effectively fainting the victim. In the mystery dungeon games, a frozen unit was immune to all attacks until it thawed, making it annoying when you need to defeat it.
