Note that many transformation sequences are actually just for the viewer's benefit ([[{{Filler}} and to eat up air time]]), and the actual change as experienced by the character is instantaneous -- or at least very brief. [[TransformationIsAFreeAction This might explain why bad guys (almost) never attack a hero during his transformation sequence]], although the DangerouslyGenreSavvy usually will not let the opportunity slip by. This may result in an unstable PartialTransformation.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' the [[UnstoppableRage Avatar State]] has this happen with a pause that is clearly in real time, with most people just too scared to react when they see it. Azula commits a [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy dire breach of anime etiquette]] [[spoiler:when she takes advantage of Aang's TransformationSequence to shoot him from behind with a lightning bolt]].

** In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 "A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2"]], the evil queen Chrysalis of the Changelings has a monstrous transformation sequence when she regain her true form.
** [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E1PrincessTwilightSparklePart1 "Princess Twilight Sparkle, Part 1"]]: Though in real-space instead of a fancy background, we get a point-by-point transformation of Princess Luna into Nightmare Moon in a flashback to her final battle with Princess Celestia a thousand years ago. The teeth reshaping themselves to becoming pointy is the part that looked like it really, ''really'' ought to hurt (and when the reformed Luna resumes her old appearance for the Halloween episode, getting into the spirit of things by scaring some kids, she transforms via magic but the teeth are ''artificial;'' maybe it really ''does'' hurt).
** [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E16ItAintEasyBeingBreezies "It Ain't Easy Being Breezies"]]: Twilight Sparkle turns herself and the rest of the Mane Six into Breezies in order to help the other Breezies get home before it's too late. Which includes a transformation sequence when they're transforming into Breezies.
** In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E26TwilightsKingdomPart2 "Twilight's Kingdom - Part 2"]], the Mane Six assuming their [[SuperMode Rainbow Power forms]] is accompanied by this.
** Even Big Mac gets in on this in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E13DoPrincessesDreamOfMagicSheep "Do Princesses Dream Of Magic Sheep"]] - before you ask, it was in a dream. His is a homage to the MagicalGirl genre - the music and glowing in particular is a take on ''Anime/SailorMoon''.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}!'' Had quite a variety of them in different episodes. One had him meeting a werewolf, who used the classic Universal sequence of a still of the human actor, a series of transitional paintings, and finally the actor in full makeup. Freakazoid then says "I can do that too!" and sits in the same chair, transitioning through a series of paintings of him doing weird faces, plus a few random cameos from other characters, before arriving at himself.

* In ''ArcanaMagiZero'', when Alysia Perez calls for Saga and Megumi Miyazaki calls for Fable, their magic circles would go through their bodies forming their magical outfits and armor.
* Yuki Shimizu in ''TheImpossibleMan'' has a TransformationSequence off scene. The plausible reason was to hide her identity from everyone, even her co-workers. Unfortunately her co-workers already figured out her secret identity and she know its too, but she still goes off scene in their presence when there are no villains around to transform.

** Hanna-Barbera also spoofed this trope with one version of ''CaptainCaveman.'' On ''The Flintstones Comedy Show,'' he worked as a copy boy named Chester at a stone-age newspaper, disguising himself only with a pair of glasses and his cape folded into a bowtie. Despite the minimal disguise, he still required a coat rack and an [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsXbe-Ujwd8 overly-elaborate transformation sequence]] (which included heroic music, explosions, lightning bolts, rockets, fireworks, glittery stars, foghorns, and was so loud that the entire city of Bedrock could hear it) to become Captain Caveman - even though the actual "transformation" part just had him straightening out his cape and hanging the glasses on the coat rack.

* Creator/HannaBarbera's late 1970s ''FredAndBarneyMeetTheThing'' featured The Thing from the ComicBook/FantasticFour as a teenager (stated in several episodes to be due to a cure gone wrong), but he could become the Thing by touching his rings together [[ByThePowerOfGreyskull and announcing "Thing Ring, Do Your Thing"]].
