* Played with in ''Series/TheFlash2014'': Everyman's "default" form is a bald man with a layer of skin covering his eyes ([[EyelessFace if he even has eyes]]), because he can't even ''remember'' what he originally looked like when he was normal. When he dies in a later episode, he reverts from the form that he had been taking into that default form, but we already know that is not his original appearance.

** Eobard Thawne / Reverse-Flash spends most of the first season wearing the face of the dead Harrison Wells. When he "[[RetGone dies]]" in the first season finale, he reverts to his true face (only seen in a single episode before that) in his last moments.

* Non-death example: In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', Leela meets another cyclops, whom she almost marries. At their wedding though, it's revealed that he's a shape-shifter with four more weddings to attend that day with four other nearly extinct aliens (he points out how much it costs to rent a shape-shifting tuxedo even for a day). Leela and the other four brides beat the crap out of him, demanding to see his true form, until eventually he submits.

{{Shapeshift|ing}}ers in general tend to gravitate to [[ShapeshifterDefaultForm their "base" or original forms]] as well when killed or sufficiently battered, as do most victims of a ShapeshifterSwanSong, or monsters that [[WasOnceAMan were once human]].

* In Creator/RobertEHoward's ConanTheBarbarian story "Literature/TheDevilInIron", Khosatral Khel, an EvilSorcerer, turns out to be an EldritchAbomination via this trope when Conan puts him down:
-->''Conan, who had not shrunk from Khosatral living, recoiled blenching for Khosatral dead, for he had witnessed an awful transmutation; in his dying throes Khosatral Khel had become again the thing that had crawled up from the Abyss millennia gone. ''
