* Another variation on this comes in the first season finale of ''WesternAnimation/ActionMan''. A rogue mass of Trilobugs assembles itself into the form of Alex's friend and rival Brandon, which stands about 100 feet tall. Brandon's consciousness, which had been removed from his body when [[EvilutionaryBiologist Dr. X]] [[GrandTheftMe took it over]], had implanted itself into one of the Trilobugs and had been taking control of the others.

She's an unusual DarkIsNotEvil example of this, as she's a neutral-to-good PerkyGoth. Still not somebody to upset, though.

* The VillainProtagonist team in The Goblin Corps by Ari Marmell has repeated dealings with worm monsters that infest and consume anyone they come in contact with, and take humanoid forms to attack when they aren't a raw swarm. Eventually it's revealed [[spoiler: that when [[BigBad Morthul]] took over his kingdom, he turned the old king into this out of spite. The worms have been multiplying for centuries, underground and unnoticed, and they still ''hate'' Morthul for what he did to them.]]

* The first storyline of the Marvel comic spinoff series Forceworks had the alien Scatter as the enemy. The Scatter resemble armored humanoids, [[spoiler:but as US Agent discovers, they're actually a swarm of sentient insects controlling the armor. It gets worse when he describes how he found this out, he was watching the Scatter climb out of the armor and eat the nearby civilians alive!]]

** A minor version of this occurs in the character of Hex in the Unseen University: A "computer" controlled by the ant colony living inside it. A similar type of machine can be seen in the Glooper in "Making Money", although that one is controlled by water and tides and the economy.
