** ''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.

* In ''Fanfic/HopToIt'', Jack's transformation to Rabbit is described in about as much detail as one would expect for a ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' transformation:

-->'''Jack''': Mimmi! Hop to it!
-->Her Kwami stretched and got sucked into her old-fashion wristwatch, turning the leather strap white and changing the clock face so it measured five minutes instead of twelve hours, the single hand stuck in an upright position. The transformation continued from there, crawling down one arm, across her chest, and to the other. A large flat throwing ring, a chakaram, appeared in her hand, which she moved across her face in a circular motion, her white domino mask appearing. Tossing her weapon into the air, she yanked two rabbit ears into existence out of the back of her head and magically smoothed her caramel-colored hair into a perfect side fishbone braid. Jack then caught her chakaram and swung it down as she kneeled, the transformation reaching her toes. Now she was entirely dressed in a white skintight suit weaved out of hexagons. She had opera gloves with the tiniest of claws, more for aesthetic purposes than to actually scratch anyone, and heavy knee-high combat boots that packed a wallop whenever she kicked someone. As if to demonstrate, she stood back up and preformed a few low air kicks and a side kick. She ended by swinging one leg in a perfect circle, her shin level with her eyes at one point, before slamming it down just as her little fluffy tail appeared. To be honest, Jack could do without the tail, but it came with the bulletproof costume.

* MarvelComics' CaptainMarVell gained a version of this when he would swap locations with Rick Jones in a flash of light after banging his two wristbands together; ditto for his son Genis, who ''also'' ended up swapping places with Rick.

* ''WesternAnimation/AtomicPuppet'': Joey and AP have one when Joey puts AP on his hand to transform into Atomic Puppet. It doesn't appear in every episode, and sometimes it's just a partial version of the full sequence, but when it happens, ''it's awesome''.

* ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' has stock footage sequences for both [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FvIChM4vF7o Ladybug]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0JoAI58z5c Cat Noir]], which involves their "kwami" spirits being drawn into their TransformationTrinket, while they shout an activation phrase.

* PlayedForLaughs in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueVsTeenTitans''--when they're attacked at the fair, [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Starfire]] gets a full MagicalGirl transformation where he costume appears, Comicbook/BlueBeetle powers up [[PoweredArmor his armor]], [[{{Animorphism}} Beast Boy]] drops onto his knees to turn into a tiger...and [[BadassNormal Damian]] just runs to the car, breaks in the window and grabs his costume from the backseat.

* ''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.
