** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-523 SCP-523 ("The Most Unhelpful Object On Earth")]]. When SCP-523 escapes from containment, it changes its form to that of a useful object. When someone tries to use it for a specific purpose, it changes to another form that's not useful at all for that purpose.

* Polymorphing in ''VideoGame/NetHack'' is one of the most complex and difficult aspects of the game, that can lead to major benefits if done well. A character has several ways to self-polymorph, such as a [[spoiler:wand, spellbook, ring, trap, potion, eating a polymorphing monster,]] and more. Most of these are uncontrolled without some form of polymorph control, such as a [[spoiler:ring or an intrinsic]]. Polymorphing can be very useful or detrimental, depending on if the new form destroys armor or if it can handle what the character is already carrying. (Weirdly, MagicPants is only played straight with the character's pants, as there are none equitable in game and there are [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything ways]] the player should die if they aren't wearing pants.)

* Cedric from ''ComicBook/{{WITCH}}''. In the [[WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}} animated adaptation]] he's limited to [[ScaledUp his snake-like true form]] and a single human form, but in the original comic he can disguise himself as ''anyone'', and has once used his power to [[{{Flight}} sprout perfectly functional wings and take off]].

* Nyanko-sensei/Madara in ''Manga/NatsumeYuujinchou''. Aside from being able to go from SleepModeSize (a ManekiNeko) to his true form (a gigantic wolf spirit) on command, he changes into a human girl once in a while when being a cat is inconvenient. He also took Natsume's form once to keep Natsume's family and friends from realizing anything had happened when Natsume was trapped in a magic jar. This was not [[NotHimself entirely]] [[OutOfCharacterAlert convincing.]] To be fair, it was probably deliberate when he slipped up with Tanuma.
