* The ''Literature/PowderMageTrilogy'' features Wardens. Wardens are inhuman creatures created by the Kez Royal Cabal using dark magic. They are twisted creations designed to be unshakeably loyal and specifically designed to defeat the titular powder mages. In the second book, the mad god Kresimir begins building "Black Wardens" out of powder mages themselves, which are even worse. There is a subplot about a viewpoint character growing increasingly certain that his missing son has been transformed into a Black Warden.

* Windfang, Wrath-Amon's literal [[TheDragon Dragon]] from the animated series ''WesternAnimation/ConanTheAdventurer''. Once a famed general, he was taken prisoner during a battle in Stygia and transformed by Wrath-Amon. His wife-to-be ran from him in horror, leaving Windfang with nothing but 200+ years of servitude to the evil wizard. Wrath-Amon's second lieutenant Skulkar also was a human before a double whammy of sorcerous empowerment and necromantic curse turned him into and undead horror; unlike Windfang, though Skulkar definitely prefers being a monster (the episode with his backstory is also the one where he gets temporarily [[HumanityEnsues remade human]], which horrifies him).

* According to his song, [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner Trogdor]] was originally a man, but then turned into a dragon-man before finally becoming a dragon completely.
** Then again, [[UnreliableNarrator the singer doesn't seem too sure about it.]]

** As individuals, there are the Nazgûl (once human rulers) and Gollum (once just an ordinary proto-hobbit). In Tolkien's concept, evil and the various {{Big Bad}}s cannot create, only pervert: therefore, almost every evil creature (e.g. those used as {{mooks}}) is a corruption or mockery of a pre-existing being. The [[OurOrcsAreDifferent orcs]] are descendants of elves twisted by Sauron's predecessor, Morgoth. If you really want a {{squick}}y thought, it's rumoured that the Uruk-hai were partly Man in some fashion. Trolls are a mockery of Ents. Subverted in the case of the undead Barrow-wights, who only possessed the dead bodies of those buried. (However, the orcs-from-elves theory is only one possible explanation - Tolkien [[FlipFlopOfGod kept revising that one]]. Some dislike the idea that orcs were literally corrupted elves as that would imply the orcs have genuine sentience and intelligence, which Tolkien implies on a few occasions is not the case, so some suggest the orcs are corruptions of various non-sentient animals.)

* [[spoiler:The Dark Curse]] in ''VideoGame/{{Miitopia}}'' once was a regular Mii that was ignored by the others because of its dull face. In rage and envy, it shed its face away, and soon after lost its body to become a blue soul-like thing that steals other Miis' faces as revenge.

* ''Manga/MadeInAbyss'' has creatures that are known to show up occasionally in the depths, called Narehate, that are known to be the living remains of those who traveled to the Capital of the Unreturned and...well, returned. The ones encountered in the Sea of Corpses and layers above generally look completely inhuman, and have no shred of sanity or capability for rational thought left. [[spoiler:The only apparent exception is the [[PettingZooPeople rabbit girl]] Nanache. Later, more human-like Narehate are discovered in the Capital of the Unreturned, although they appear to have become Narehate through a different mechanism]].

* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', [[spoiler: Titans were once human. The only difference between Shifters like Eren and regular Titans is that he was able to control the power. Regular Titans appear to have fully absorbed their human "pilot", reducing them to mindless horrors that seek out humans to eat. Ymir was able to regain her humanity after 60 years, though the exact method is unknown. It is, however, hinted to involve the fact that she ate a suspected Shifter around the same time....]]
