** Taxxons are horrifying, as they are completely consumed by HorrorHunger, causing them to instantly consume anything even remotely edible around them (including their injured comrades.) Yeerks with Taxxon host bodies cannot stop the feeding once it starts and can barely make the host body focus on anything besides feeding; morphing into a Taxxon causes similar issues.

The hunger is so bad that a group of dissident Taxxons agree to help the Animorphs in exchange for being allowed to morph into some less-ravenous forms and [[ShapeshifterModeLock stay in those forms for more than two hours]].

* Purah from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. Originally a 100+-year-old, she uses an experimental [[FountainOfYouth rejuvenation]] process on herself that leaves her physically a six-year-old, with the requisite childish personality. Reading her diary also reveals that, as she was passing down through her teenage years, she briefly exhibited a rebellious and resentful personality and a penchant for [[TotallyRadical "teen" slang]].

* During ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'', the titular samurai is imprisoned and forced to fight in rings for entertainment twice. The first time he tries repeatedly to refuse, angrily lecturing the audience about the plot of the episode. The second time, he's in a pit with much less to prevent escape, but [[BalefulPolymorph he's been turned into a rooster]] and the POV shots showing his thoughts after the transformation have tapered off. After a single attempt to escape is thwarted he just takes the role of a loyal gamecock, fighting his opponents with claws and beak, and utterly resigned when out of the pit.


Added DiffLines:

* Having one's stomach surgically reduced in size would seem like a purely physical change, the simple inability to eat as much as before. For some people that's what it works out to, with frustration resulting. For others it results in the feeling of having enough willpower to not consume as much, or just being less interested in food.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'': deaging to a toddler doesn't reduce Batman's intelligence, but it does alter his behaviour - forcing him to communicate mainly in baby-talk and draw using crayons. At the end, he's able to figure out a cure for his deaging, but has to tell the Marvel family with incoherent baby noises and pointing at things.

* We're told in the ''[[Literature/TalesOfTheFiveHundredKingdoms Five Hundred Kingdoms]]'' series by MercedesLackey that only the most powerful Sorcerers or Sorceresses can transform a person into an animal without that person losing his mind to the animal. However, since the books focus on Godmothers, we don't see this in action. In the first book, Elena transforms Alexander into a donkey, but has to give him regular time as a human. In "The Snow Queen", Aleksia takes several animal forms, but even as a polar bear (which has a large enough brain to "fit" a human mind into) the animal instincts get stronger the longer she remains changed.

* Taking on the form of an animal on ''WesternAnimation/WildKratts'' sometimes leaves Chris and Martin overwhelmed by that animal's instincts or perspective, as when the brothers became obsessed with finding shells while using hermit crab discs.

* In the Mobile RPG ''VideoGame/KemonoFriends'', animals from all around the world gathered in a giant park are turned into human-like girls due to a mysterious substance known as Sand Star. They all acquire human-like intelligence and although keep some characteristics tied to their original species, generally are mostly human-like in behavior, some of them even getting into hobbies like reading, watching tv and playing video games.
** In the ''Manga/SgtFrog'' collaboration event, the 5 aliens invaders from Sgt. Frog are turned into human-like girls too due to the Sand Star. Their personality quickly adjusts to match their new bodies. All of them soon identify as girls, although Giroro initially attempts to deny it, wear female clothing without issue, and in Giroro's and Dororo's cases there's even a complete change of their speech style. Although they initially set out to go back to normal, by the end they indefinitely delay that in order to help the game's protagonists in their quest.

* In Robin Jarvis' ''Literature/Hagwood'' trilogy, the insect monster known as Frighty Aggie was once a werling named Agnilla Hellekin. She was so skilled that she could wergle (that is, transform) into any forest creature. However, she wanted a bigger challenge, so decided to try wergling into an insect. This had never been attempted by anyone before and was regarded as highly dangerous. Still, she successfully managed to do so three times, but each time her mind was being irreparably damaged. On the third try, she could not wergle back to her original form and permanently became a grotesque insect monster with no memory of who she had been before. Her story became a cautionary tale to all werlings to never try wergling into shapes that were forbidden to them.
