* Monstrous Transformation: A darker and more physical sequence, usually when [[OneWingedAngel a humanoid character becomes more monstrous]] before our eyes -- often involving [[GrowingMusclesSequence bulging muscles]], [[ClothingDamage ripping clothes]], ([[MagicPants to various extents]]) and [[PainfulTransformation often implications of pain]], especially in a horror-themed series. [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Werewolves]], JekyllAndHyde, and other magical or chemical induced transformations usually fall under this. It's often a way for the villain to get serious during the GrandFinale... and [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman become something viewers won't mind seeing the heroes kill]].

''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"]]

* ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'': Characters who morphed had to wear tight clothing or risk becoming naked when they remorphed. The latter only occurred once. The books made it quite clear that morphing almost never happened the same way twice, and was usually highly disgusting unless the morpher had an unusual talent for it (as did Cassie). It's also very DependingOnTheWriter how long and descriptive the transformations are--book #20 went into so much detail that it took almost a whole chapter for Marco to morph a cobra.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.]]\\

* 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.
