* 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.

** Jamila was later homaged by ''Series/UltramanGaia'' with a monster named Tsuchikera. He was originally Kondo, a biological warfare researcher during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII whom the Imperial Army mutated with a serum he developed to create super-soldiers when he refused to use it for the war. He fled to the swamps driven half-mad by his transformation but his friend Hirano remained by his side to help keep him sane. Unfortunately, radioactive leakage from underground nuclear testing begins to scramble Tsuchikera's brain and turns him into a giant monster. The results are an even bigger TearJerker than Jamila's episode.

* 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.)
