* And then there's ''Franchise/DragonBall'', though it typically happened on less grand a scale -- the villain announces that he's changing to his "true form", then becomes larger and more muscular. (Some do this more than once!) The Saiyans have their Super-Saiyan forms.
** In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', Frieza's initial form is small and rather weedy looking, but has proved to be extremely powerful in previous confrontations. He transforms into a much taller version of himself, then an even larger, monstrous beast with an elongated head and spikes on its back. However his much-hyped final form turns out to be just as small as his original, but more sleek and aerodynamic, effectively crossing the BishonenLine. At first he is mocked for this, but soon proves that the extra speed and strength far outweighs what he lacks in height. And ''then'' these are followed by a more muscular form of the same, and after losing much of his body after his defeat on Namek and coming to Earth for revenge, a cyborg form. When he returns for ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF'', he dumps the cyborg form in favor of a Golden SuperMode.
*** His older brother Cooler, the villain of the movie ''Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge'', starts the battle in the equivalent of Frieza's final form (but taller and more muscular), but eventually, to Goku's shock, reveals that he discovered a ''fifth'' form beyond it, which he transforms into, becoming larger, stronger, and far more horrific.
** Likewise, as Cell steps closer to his 'Perfect' form, he becomes steadily ''more'' humanoid.

* And then there's ''Franchise/DragonBall'', ''Franchise/DragonBall'':
** This happens a lot, especially in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'',
though it typically happened on less grand a scale -- the villain announces that he's changing to his "true form", then becomes larger and more muscular. (Some do this more than once!) once!)
** At the climax of the original ''Manga/DragonBall'', a pre-redemption Piccolo grew building-sized, although only briefly. The same for Lord Slug in his movie.
** Garlic Jr goes from looking like a paler midget version of Piccolo without the antennae (or like Emperor Pilaf) to looking like a bulkier, more adult-height version of the same.

The Saiyans have their Super-Saiyan forms.
** In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', Frieza's initial
iconic Super Saiyan form is small and rather weedy looking, but has proved to be extremely powerful in previous confrontations. He transforms into a much taller version of himself, then an even larger, monstrous beast with an elongated head and spikes on its back. However his much-hyped final form turns out to be just as small as his original, but more sleek and aerodynamic, effectively crossing and, before that, the BishonenLine. At first he is mocked for this, but soon proves that the extra speed and strength far outweighs what he lacks in height. And ''then'' these are followed by a more muscular form whole Oozaru thing. In an episode of the same, and after losing much of his body after his defeat on Namek and coming to Earth for revenge, Saiyan saga Vegeta has a cyborg form. When he returns for ''Anime/DragonBallZResurrectionF'', he dumps the cyborg form in favor of a Golden SuperMode.
*** His older brother Cooler, the villain of the movie ''Dragon Ball Z: Cooler's Revenge'', starts the battle in the equivalent of Frieza's final form (but taller and more muscular), but eventually, to Goku's shock, reveals
move that allows him to go Oozaru by creating a ball of energy that looks like the full moon -- he discovered a ''fifth'' form beyond it, uses this move and turns Oozaru. Amazingly he's still able to speak while being in this form, which he transforms into, becoming larger, stronger, was explained as him being trained to have some control over the form (as opposed to the only other Oozaru appearing being entirely untrained kids - Goku and far more horrific.
** Likewise, as Cell steps closer to his 'Perfect' form, he becomes steadily ''more'' humanoid.
Gohan).



** Majin Buu has the most transformations of any character in the entirety of ''Dragon Ball'', as he assumes a new form and undergoes some personality changes every time he absorbs a person. He was created as a shrimpy little guy who has no vocabulary whatsoever and blows up planets for giggles; becomes ''very'' buff after absorbing the Southern Supreme Kai; turns fat and goofy after absorbing the Grand Supreme Kai (the form the heroes first encounter him in); expels the embodiment of its evil side as a pale, wiry thing; becomes muscular and savage when the evil side reabsorbs the good side; absorbs Piccolo and Gotenks to become smarter and more powerful with a more human face and longer antennae; reverts to a Piccolo-based form when Gotenks' fusion runs out; absorbs Gohan to take on his most human form yet; and then when Goku and Vegeta free all the fighters he absorbed he finally reverts back into his original form before all the transformations began. Counting Majuub from the anime-only ''Anime/DragonBallGT'', that's 9 in total.
*** Buu crosses over into PowerLimiter territory as The Grande Supreme Kai kept him from using all his power while also making him much more sane

* In ''Manga/GreenWorldz'', everyone got freaked out when the [[NotQuiteDead supposedly dead]] female Hybrid human rapidly [[FromASingleCell regrow her body out from a small flesh]] and emerged out [[FullFrontalAssault naked with a creppy bug-like looking head]]. She then commented that this is why she didn't want to get serious and then proceeded to unleash powerful attacks that nearly took out everyone around her. Even {{Bad Ass}} Iwatobi had a hard tme fighting her in [[ForbiddenChekhovsGun his original fighting capability]].

** All the Akatsuki have a OneWingedAngel form in one way or another. Kakuzu's [[CombatTentacles tentacle mass thing]], Hidan's Grim Reaper form, Kisame's Samehada-Fusion form, Itachi and Sasuke's [[PowerArmor Susano'o]], Madara's Intangibility form, Sasori's real body, Konan and her paper angel form... [[TheDragon Pain]] and [[MadBomber Deidara]] are the only who lack it.
*** And Pain already consists of ''six remotely controlled zombies''; his final revealed form was a creepy wasted body impaled by many chakra antennae. Deidara did the thing mentioned in the trope description of becoming a living bomb.

** In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' [[spoiler:[[BigBadDuumvirate Goku Black and Future Zamasu]] (who are alternate timeline versions of the same fallen Supreme Kai) ultimately decide to take the heroes seriously after Zamasu nearly gets [[SealedEvilInACan sealed away]] by the Mafuba. They proceed to perform [[FusionDance Potara Fusion]] into Merged Zamasu, who largely resembles a taller, more imposing, white haired Super Saiyan version of Zamasu with some of Goku's facial features and is ''far'' stronger than either of his components.]]

** [[TheMole Dennis]] in ''Anime/YugiohArcV'' goes through a metaphorical case via his deck and ace monster. He starts out with the Entermages, of which most resembles a hybrid of {{Magical Clown}}s and {{Stage Magician}}s, as his deck's archetype with his ace being the flashy and silly Entermage Trapeze Magician. During his second duel against Kurosaki who reveals Dennis' true colors as a spy from Academia as he destroys Trapeze Magician, Dennis stops using Entermages entirely, and switches over to the Antique Gears used by the rest Academia. [[IAmNotLeftHanded He then shows his true ace card]]: the gargantuan and abominable MechanicalMonster Antique Gear Chaos Giant.
