* The Storm King, BigBad of TadWilliams' ''MemorySorrowAndThorn'' trilogy, upon being summoned back into the world by EvilSorcerer Pryrates, takes on an EldritchAbomination-esque form that must have been a lot of fun for the author to write.

Added 'Zero Sight' to Literature
* In the last novel of [[Literature/TheDarkElfTrilogy R. A. Salvatore]]'s ''The Crimson Shadow'' trilogy, the [[BigBad evil king Greensparrow]] turns out to have a pact with a dragon and shares its shape, fighting the hero Luthien in this form at the end. No wonder the novel's name is ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Dragon King]].''

[[spoiler:Rei Bathory, DarkActionGirl, BadassPrincess, and main love interest of the protagonist of the series]] does this at the end of book two.

* And an interesting twist from ''Night Mare,'' book 6 in PiersAnthony's ''Literature/{{Xanth}}'' series: the protagonist, Mare Imbri, ''is'' a "Night Mare." When, in a climactic scene, she confronts a shape-shifting villain, he ''almost'' saves himself by shifting from human form into horse form. Imbri does eventually defeat him, but it becomes much, much harder to do so. It isn't just because she can't hurt a fellow horse either, it's because she's ''in heat'' at the time. (''Sigh'', [[Literature/{{Xanth}} Piers Anthony...]])

* Inverted in the last volume of ''Literature/TheSeventhTower''. Sharrakor, the shapeshifting BigBad, opens the final battle in his NighInvulnerable dragon form, which the heroes are no match for. Midway through the battle, the sorceress Malen manages to magically force him to take on a much weaker humanoid form, in which he is killable.

* Defied in PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians, in the sense that the BigBad Kronos is trying to achieve the power of returning to his true form, instead of possessing his follower Luke. But the efforts of Percy, Zeus, and all their allies prevent this effect--and Kronos is so strong even without his true form that we can infer that nothing could have stopped him if he had gone OneWingedAngel. Kronos is never fought in anything but a form which is just as human (not completely human, but definitely not comparable to a [[PhysicalGod the gods and titans like Kronos]]) as Percy Jackson himself.
