* An aversion occurs in chapter 19 of ''FanFic/DigimonTrinity''; Mephistomon attacks Veemon while he's in the midst of digivolving to prevent him and Stingmon from [[FusionDance DNA digivolving]].

* Famously subverted in ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness'', where Etna shoots two {{Sentai}} characters in the middle of a transformation sequence.

** The anime adaption only shows Balance Breaker transformations once each. Issei's happens so out of left field that his opponent gawking for a moment is entirely reasonable, and Vali was plainly just showing off [[spoiler:and was under no threat from the "enemies" he was about to defect to anyway]].
** Handwaved with [[spoiler:Juggernaut Drive]]. If they're that far gone, you're dead already.

** Handwaved with [[spoiler:Juggernaut Drive]].Drive. While there is a lengthy invocation, the user's power is skyrocketing during the process]]. If they're that far gone, you're dead already.

** Raynare impaled Issei while he was powering up.

** Raynare impaled Issei while he was powering up. Issei's vulnerability as he warmed up is a glaring weakness early on and one of the first hurdles his TrainingFromHell has to tackle.

* Gloriously averted in ''Film/DogSoldiers'' when [[spoiler:Megan]] starts transforming into a werewolf they just shoot [[spoiler:her]] in the head. Played straight with [[spoiler:Ryan]] as they don't outright kill him while he's transforming but they do get their weapons ready. Understandable because he was under a table and nobody really wanted to get that close to a werewolf.

** In the original ''Manga/DragonBall'', Goku ran up and punched King Piccolo in the gut while he was powering up, and chided him for leaving himself open.



** In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', Champa orders Hit to attack Goku while he is powering up, but he refuses because he considers Goku a WorthyOpponent and wants to fight him at his best.



** Also averted on at least one occasion in the Vehicle version of ''Voltron'' (aka ''Anime/DaiRuggerXV''). The MonsterOfTheWeek attacks one the individual units that make up the left leg mid transformation, causing it to crash. This leaves the two other units that make up the leg flying solo while the main robot it very off balance. And while it ultimately fails, it does have the sense to try and neutralise the units that couldn't combine and prevent the combination sequence from completing.

Added DiffLines:

* Keeping things fair for the bad guys, in ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' shows where the method to MakeMyMonsterGrow involves a separate villain showing up at ground level to grow the monster (such as Gash from ''Series/ChoujuuSentaiLiveman'' or Nalia from ''Series/DoubutsuSentaiZyuohger''), or when it's otherwise theoretically possible to stop the monster from growing, the heroes pretty much never try to do so, instead just waiting for the monster to grow so they can take to their HumongousMecha. There have been the occasional subversions of this (such as a time when the [[Series/GoseiSentaiDairanger Dairangers]] fenced in a monster with their staff weapons to prevent it from throwing the enlargement bomb) however.

* Parodied in Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei! episode 1 where Rin and Luvia faceplant into a bog and Illya and Miu transform to fish them out. During the entire sequence you can hear Rin and Luvia struggling for their lives in the background while the girls undergo the lengthy transformation and when it's done Rin and Luvia appear to be lifeless and motionless in the muck. When pulled out Rin asks why they took so long to rescue them.
