* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'': As befitting it's MagicalGirl {{Animesque}} style, [[spoiler: Star performs one when unlocking her GoldenSuperMode at the end of The Battle For Mewni]]. It looks like something out of ''Anime/SailorMoon'' or ''Franchis/PrettyCure''.

* ''VideoGame/ArTonelico3'' did this in a reverse effect. [[MagicalGirl Reyvateils]] ''remove'' their clothes during their [[FanService zoom-in transformation sequences]]. Strangely enough, they reequip their clothes in a flash when they begin using their ultimate attacks.
** Played straight in ''VideoGame/ArTonelico''.

* When a CPU or CPU Candidate in {{Neptunia}} activates Hard Drive Divinity, the user switches into a {{Stripperific}} bodysuit, her hair grows (or changes to drill hair in Uni's case), [[ExoticEyeDesigns her eyes glow and sport power switch shaped pupils]], and her weapon will increase in size or at least change how it looks to fit the appearance of the user; in Neptune's case, her voice is also changed. The Transformation Sequence is very ''Anime/SailorMoon''-esque in the first game and rather lengthy at that, but can fortunately be skipped with the press of a button. [[spoiler: Arfoire likewise gets a transformation in the first game as well; into a colossal and powerful dragon, that is.]]\\

''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker''Has a disturbing transformation towards the end of the game. [[spoiler:After Link gets to the top of Gannon's Castle, Ganondorf has a disturbing cutscene when he monologues about Princess Zelda's Dream and the Gods of Hyrule. Then his bones snap as he moans and grows in size into a puppet Boar-Like monstrosity titled, "Puppet Ganon"]]

* This was one of the reasons that the ''[[ComicBook/TheAvengers Avengers]]'' cartoon was so poorly received by fans of the comic. Ant-Man, Wasp, Falcon, and Hawkeye all got elaborate Transformation Sequences that involved being covered by armor that was, for the purposes of their abilities, completely unnecessary. It didn't help that it added to the fact that none of these characters were wearing anything remotely like their comic book costumes.

* ''Webcomic/TheLeagueOfSuperRedundantHeroes'': Lampooned in [[http://superredundant.com/?comic=257-downtime this strip]] where the more experienced villain clearly find this sort of thing odd, but doesn't question it anymore.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' Also has a PainfulTransformation sequence when Link transforms into a wolf for the first time. After this all of links transformations into wolf link are much smoother. Minda gets one when using the fused shadows. A few of the bosses also have transformation scenes such as [[OneWingedAngel Ganondorf's transformations into a giant boar and then into a cloud of evil smoke with his face]] and also Yeta being transformed into Blizzeta.

* Parodied in the ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'' strip "[[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=3474 Sailor Sagittarius A*]]", in which we see Bubbles de-armouring ''Sailor Sentai'' style, and then this turns out to be an ImagineSpot by Faye as she levers it off with a crowbar.

* Curiously, the original appearance of the ''{{Transformers}}'' in the West did ''not'' include overt transformation sequences. The characters would make the switch between robot and vehicle/device forms wherever they were standing in complete continuity with the scene (although they always transformed [[StockFootage the exact same way]]). This is more cultural than cost; newer series such as the shows of the Unicron Trilogy, which were actual anime, frequently featured such scenes, and the Japanese AlternateContinuity third season of [[TransformersGeneration1 Generation 1]] featured transformation sequences for new characters only (old ones kept scene continuity).

** ''TransformersAnimated'' is generally in-scene but faster than G1, unless the bot in question is about to do something important (''e. g.'', Megatron transforming for the first time after being rebuilt and telling the Decepticons to "[[CatchPhrase Transform and Rise Up]]"). Then you get full-on Japan-esque transformation sequences, mostly for dramatic effect. However, we don't the "[name], transform!" call the actual Japan-original series have.

** WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime has only one prolonged transformation sequence, which ironically is given to Nemesis Prime, the only non-Cybertronian transforming robot in the show. This is presumably to emphasise his imperfect mechanical nature, whereas actual Cybertronians have far faster and more fluid transformations.
