* Shapeshifting is the hat of Jupiter spies in ''Podcast/TheThrillingAdventureHour'' "Sparks Nevada, Marshal on Mars" episodes. On multiple occasions, Jupiter spy Jib Janeen infiltrates the group by posing as one of the main characters with the rest none the wiser until it's too late. This being a comedy series, the joke comes from the fact that the the characters are fooled despite the fact that Jib Janeen makes absolutely ''zero'' effort to hide his voice and mannerisms while in disguise. His initial appearances feature him singing the Sparks Nevada theme song as either Sparks or Croach and, in the latter case, being so hammy as Croach that Sparks' actor Marc Evan Jackson can't help {{Corpsing}}.

* In ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' there is Isma, who is a [[HalfHumanHybrid half-mermaid]]. She can change her shape, and look like a human as well as a [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent mermaid]]. This power is seemingly common to mermaids.

** Sesshomaru can also transform. You can usually see him in his human-like form, but a few times he turns into a huge, white demon dog. He is much stronger in this form, but even in his human form he is already one of the strongest youkai.
** An arc of a story has a moth-youkai named Gatenmaru, who has morphed into a human form and was the leader of a group of human bandits.
** Miroku meets already at the beginning of the series a female mantis-youkai, who had taken [[LiteralManeater the form of a young girl to lure him into the trap]].
** Another story arc has a bull-hanyou. He is an [[InvoluntaryShapeshifting involuntary shapeshifter]], and looks like a human during the day, and like a youkai at night. The fact that he has a [[HumanMomNonHumanDad human father and a demonic mother]] strongly implies that bull-youkai can their shapes also changing and how humans can look.
** Many fans support the theory that even wolf-youkai can [[TotallyNotAWerewolf switch between their human-like and their demonic form]], even if one has never seen such a transformation in anime or manga.
** In general, [[MonstrosityEqualsWeakness the ability to transform into a human-like form is a feature of really strong youkai]]. Sango says early in the series that the strongest and most dangerous youkai are the ones who can look like humans.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' has several examples:
** The first one to appear is [[EldritchAbomination [=MissingNo=]]], an EldritchAbomination capable of virtually taking any form it wants. It first appears as [[HybridMonster an amalgam of]] [[MixAndMatchCritters Dialga, Palkia and Giratina]], and later it takes [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith the forms of Dawn, Serena and Iris]] just to torment Ash.
** [[spoiler: Serena]] is implied to have this, as her hair changes its natural color to black [[spoiler: when she's sad about Ash's defeat in the Battle Dome tournament.]]
** Another is [[spoiler: Hilda]], though in her case it's more of an illusory power, much like a Zorua/Zoroark.

turn into birds birds. Volume 5 confirms it. Of note is that this ability is something that they have ''on top'' of their Semblances (powers), when almost everyone else in the setting has only one of. This ability was the result of SuperEmpowering by Ozpin]][[spoiler:Professor Ozpin]].
