* Seeing as how a central theme of their games is 'Personal Horror', WhiteWolf has made this moment standard with nearly every ''TabletopGame/TheWorldOfDarkness'' gameline except Hunter and Mage games (where you remain human), and ''TabletopGame/PrometheanTheCreated'' (where you don't start out human). Granted, even in those games, its still quite possible if the Storyteller spins it right.

Stan in "Boss Mabel." PlayedWith because she actually realizes that she ''needs'' to act like him to some extent in order to get things done.

Just then, a band called "Reflective Randy and the What Have I Becomes" pass by, with mirrors covering their clothes, prompting the standard HeelRealization.

* {{Neopets}} played this for laughs in the Petpet Park plot. You come upon an adorable Cybunny with the options of: A) Become inexplicably hostile, B) Request an autograph, C) Ask, "If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?", or D) Bribe it with Neocash. Upon executing any of the options, the Cybunny would turn around to reveal itself to be half-robot. If you chose A, it gets a mirror out of nowhere and says, "ERROR: WHAT HAVE I BECOME?"

* Ben Grimm in the ''ComicBook/UltimateFantasticFour'' actually attempted suicide after his transformation, but his rock hard skin made it impossible. To date, ''all'' version of The Thing have this to some degree... at best, they learn to live with it. The point even has a back and forth, since ReedRichardsIsUseless will mean either Reed is deeply ashamed he can't find a cure, or that he hasn't devoted enough effort to do it. He is occasionally depicted as having mental blocks about being restored as well... that Reed does not see fit to reveal to him.

* Fluttershy in the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode Putting Your Hoof Down.
** Essentially, she wants to become less of a doormat so she takes lessons on assertiveness. It works [[GoneHorriblyRight all too well]] to the point where Fluttershy sees herself as a menace to her friends, prompting her to lock herself in her own home. This leads to a moment when Fluttershy looks in the mirror and sees herself with devil horns.
