* ''Film/{{Underworld}}'' and ''UnderworldEvolution'', with static vampires (except for the main vamp boss with the somewhat typical beastly demon-form) but human-werewolf transformations, and their werewolves have [[strike:inverted knees]] digitigrade legs.

*** Since ''Film/TheAvengers'', Tony modified the Mark VII and built his armors from then on so that they can open up for him to simply step in after which they close up around him, making the transformation even more low-key. They can also form around him in midair like the original Mark VII but at a much faster rate. Even Rhodey's Iron Patriot armor has this feature.

Typo
** 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 classes on the coat rack.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'': In the episode "Super Zeroes," the girls each try to change their look to be more like the super hero in their favorite comic books, complete with such elaborate transformations that, by the time they're done, the monster has left town. Blossom gets a [[SuitingUpOfDestiny suiting up]] sequence to turn into a ComicBook/WonderWoman-inspired hero, Buttercup gets a dark magical transformation into a {{ComicBook/Spawn}}-inspired anti-hero, while Bubbles... crawls under the bed, emerges in a magical land, slides down a rainbow, and finds a bunny costume to wear.

* Mon-Star, main villain of ''WesternAnimation/SilverHawks'', has a very similar transformation sequence to Mumm-Ra. One interesting note is that he grows metal spikes from various parts of his body, which is animated in a way that looks fairly painful, but no mention of pain is made.

Added a couple of videos
* 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"]]. This also had a reverse transformation sequence, without a required phrase.

* ''AlteredBeast'' has a momentary pause before buffing up when one of the [[TransformationTrinket magical floating balls]] is collected, followed after a third time by a transformation sequence to make you into a werewolf, dragon, or giant cuddly bear with halitosis. [[http://www.i-mockery.com/shorts/altered-beast/3.gif The werewolf one]] is particularly detailed.

* SuperhumanSamuraiSybersquad gets a hybrid of the real-space scenes and the stock footage sequences. Sam striking the 'power chord' on his guitar is ''half'' new footage (constant angle-changing for drama. The alternate angle is stock footage.) as is his transforming into energy and flying into the computer. The energy entering the Servo form on the screen and Servo flying into action is stock footage, as well as Servo's 'decompressing' into his proper size. (The original series is a SpiritualSuccessor of the ''Franchise/UltraSeries'', so decompression replaces the heroic MakeMyMonsterGrow to building size.)

* ''SuperSmashBros. Melee'' has a relatively quick transformation sequence between [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Zelda and Sheik]]. This is lengthened in ''Brawl'' because of loading, and Pokémon Trainer goes through a similar "transformation" when switching Pokémon, but the character transforming cannot be damaged or intercepted from the time the sequence starts to when it ends. There is still a lag period at the end, though.

* Most of the time after the first few episodes this happened in ''StaticShock'', even though his costume was just regular clothes altered by the hero to obscure his identity.

** Even better, the ''Anime/SailorMoon ''{{Expy}} had a longer sequence than the others, so while the other girls were already done and posing, she kept [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning spinning and spinning and spinning...]]
