* Several villains in ''LightNovel/UndefeatedBahamutChronicle take a large dose of the drug Elixir to turn themselves into Nocturnals, beings that are compared by the narration to demons. They get black skin, white hair and massively increased physical abilities. If the transformation extends to their whole body, it will eventually kill them, overlapping with DeadlyUpgrade.

* 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]].''

* In the ''Franchise/{{Doctor Who|Expanded Universe}}'' spinoff ''Literature/FactionParadox'' series, the more the TimeLord Expies regenerate, the more like this they become until they're nothing but sentient masses of weaponry and defensive devices. You wouldn't like to meet 'em.

* It's one of the abilities of the vampires in ''Literature/ZeroSight'' where they call it "manifesting". [[spoiler:Rei Bathory, DarkActionGirl, BadassPrincess, and main love interest of the protagonist of the series]] does this at the end of book two.

* ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'': In ''Literature/TheSilverChair'', Prince Rilian expresses relief that TheVamp who'd kidnapped him turned into a giant serpent when she tried to kill him, because "It would not have suited well either with my heart or with my honor [[WouldntHitAGirl to have slain a woman]]." (Though he probably would have if she forced the issue..)

* There's something of a sort like this in ''Literature/AmericanGods'', as the deities seem to have a form that shows one of their believers whose [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve faith]] was strong enough to make them real. Thus, Mr. Nancy/Anasi has this form of an African boy with a distented stomach and infected leg and [[spoiler: Hinzelmann]] shows a child pierced by swords, which actually reflects his being created through human sacrifice. Interestingly, TheOtherWiki novel for the character indicates that this was actually that character's true form in the original stories.

* The Storm King, BigBad of Creator/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.

** Also, you realize just how awesomely {{Badass}} V3 is: you can only acquire DNA while in your native form, and while Andalites such as the one the Visser [[PuppeteerParasite possesses]] have the slashing tail of doom, that'd barely inconvenience some of the nastier beasties the Visser has turned into - some of whom have projectile attacks like fire and venom and ''spears.'' A centaur with a pointy tail managed to get close enough to these things to ''actually touch.'' (Yeah, acquiring puts 'em into a trance... but you gotta touch 'em first.) One of them was actually a ''natural predator of his race,'' evolved to ''remove Yeerks from their hosts to eat.''

* In an Creator/UrsulaKLeGuin Literature/{{Earthsea}} story, two sorcerers get into a duel involving shapeshifting; it ends with one back in his human form, and the other a dragon. The human says something like, "I'm tired of this; it ends now; show me your true shape, by the power of your True Name." He speaks the Name. The dragon is unaffected, and replies, "That is my true name; this is my true shape." CHOMP!
