* Mostly played straight in ''Chaika the Coffin Princess''. When Toru and Akari undergo their Iron Blood Form transformation, they have to chant an incantation that takes a few seconds to complete. A few times, the two took measures to distract enemies so they could finish it uninterrupted. However, no one has EVER actually tried to stop them from doing it, even when standing right in front of them.

* ''SaintSeiya'': Played straight. While they rarely ever have transformation sequences during battles, no one ever attacks them while they put on their Cloths.

** However, the Transformation version was subverted at least once when [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Conner]] was attacked during a morph and blasted out of it. Further, during ''[[Series/PowerRangersTurbo Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie]]', Kat's morph is shorted out when she falls into some water before it gets completed.

* ResidentEvil is very, very guilty. Countless are the times when the hero would just stand there, gun trained at the villain, who's laughing maniacally, strinking dramatic poses while they are slowly mutating or being absorbed into their OneWingedAngel form.

* For most in ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'', see the ''Dungeons & Dragons'' entry farther up, but the Vigilante has the potential for an unusually literal case... at high levels. The [[MagicGirl Magical Child]] archetype (class modification) and a social talent changes their technically-mundane disguise into their alternate self to a magical TransformationSequence (by that exact name) that takes five rounds (quite significant, but roughly half the time it takes a mundane vigilante). However, there are other social talents that speed up how long it takes to switch disguises, and the top tier of those makes the transformation sequence into a ''swift'' action (swift actions being actions that take up ''just'' enough of a fraction more of time than a free action that they can only be done once a round while still leaving all your other actions untouched and usable).

Added DiffLines:

* The diverging point in the ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11886818/1/Inheritance Inheritance]]'' is Piccolo averting this and killing Freeza while he tries to go in his third form.

* Though usually played absolutely straight in ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'', the villain of the first movie gladly attacks the heroes mid-transformation.

** The aforementioned subversion took place in a virtual simulation to which the opponent was particularly adapted. Normally, the sequence is instant to outside observers.

Added DiffLines:

** In one of the episodes in the second half of the first series, the Cures completed their demand for the creature of darkness to return from whence it came, only to discover that the creature of darkness ''had'' returned from whence it came (or at least run off to carry out her evil plan elsewhere) during the transformation.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'', this is averted with Droidikas. While they generally transition from their ball mode to combat mode quickly, Ashoka and Anakin manage to kill one while it is in wheel mode and lightsaber range in the movie.

*** There is a reason for the white line: the flying trains that are part of the transformation for the helmet will smack anyone dumb enough to cross the white line HARD. As the Lion Inves from the crossover special found out the hard way.

As the Lion Inves from the crossover special found out the hard way. Since the series is aimed (more so than most) at small children, the {{Aesop}} being, even bad guys wait behind the white line when a train is coming.
