* Some of the supernatural villains in ''[[Fanfic/UltimateSleepwalker Ultimate Sleepwalker: The New Dreams]]'' were originally humans. They are also {{Fully Embraced Fiend}}s who ''like'' being transformed into various monstrosities, and revel in the horror they can cause their innocent victims.

In some cases, the person may actually ''like'' being transformed, and doesn't care about becoming human again. Instead, they are a FullyEmbracedFiend.

** There is a theory that Night Elves (from which all other elves are descended) descended themselves from Trolls who were exposed to the arcane energies of the Well of Eternity, once more inverting the trope.
*** This is confirmed in the new Chronicles book.
** All but a small few of the demonic races were once regular beings that became so tainted by fel energy they eventually became full demons, usually caused by direct interference by the Burning Legion as an assimilation plot. Many night elves became full demons in the form of satyrs and many other races became part-way demonic such as chaos orcs and the felblood elves through similar corruption. The eredar are an odd case because the majority of the species became demons after siding with the Legion while a minority fled and became draenei, which is different because the previous cases had mainly the minority of their race become demonic.
*** Only a few races like the Nathrezim are confirmed to be originally demonic.

* Although (at the time of writing) it isn't even out yet, ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'' already has its own Nightmare Fuel page, due almost entirely to this trope. Practically every horrific thing you find will make you ask "That used to be a ''person''!?", and most of the time, the answer'll be "Yes".

** Judge Death started out as human before he met the Sisters of Death, who transformed him into the undead monster we know him as now. When his fellow Dark Judges see the results, they ask for the same to be done to them. The Sisters themselves used their magic to cast off their mortal bodies as they entered the astral plane, then return to the world of the living as banshee-like ghosts.
