** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' '''loves''' this trope. The first time is just before the fight with [[spoiler:Nametame, who is possessed by Kunino-sagiri and turns into him]]. Then, the real killer does it, transforming into [[spoiler:Ameno-sagiri, God Of Fog]]. If you get the True Ending, [[spoiler:Izanami]] does it ''twice'', first becoming her Goddess form, and then turning into [[spoiler:Izanami-no-Okami when you use the Orb of Sight]]. On top of that, everyone's Shadow does this. There are eight major Shadows... so Persona 4 does this ''twelve times'' in total.

** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' continues the trend, as almost every human's Shadow you face transforms in order to fight you[[note]]Exceptions are [[TheUnfought Shadow Futaba, Shadow Mishima]], and [[FlunkyBoss Shadow Okumura]][[/note]]. Lesser antagonist's Shadows in Mementos turn into Persona spirits, while Palace owner's Shadows become personalized monsters. The [[spoiler:Holy Grail]] also does this, changing from [[spoiler:a giant, golden goblet to Yaldabaoth, a massive angelic abomination.]]

* A player character example can occur in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim''. If the Dragonborn is a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]], they can transform into a fearsome beast to mangle enemies to shreds. The ''Dawnguard'' expansion introduces a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampiric]] equivalent - completing certain quests allows the player to transform into a Vampire Lord at will, gaining a monstrous appearance and an array of powerful blood magic abilities.

** The main antagonist of ''SonicAndTheSecretRings'', the Erazor Djinn, suffers a surprisingly ''unintentional'' version of this, turning into an ugly "incomplete monster" called Alf Layla wa-Layla after absorbing the [[GreenRocks World Rings]] following [[TakingTheBullet a botched sacrifice.]]
** In ''SonicAndTheBlackKnight'', there's [[spoiler:Merlina]], the Dark Queen. Throughout the course of the game, she goes from a harmless cute wizard to a scary evil sorceress to a giant armored knight with four arms, two of which are armed with building-sized swords.

* ''[[VideoGame/TheAngryVideoGameNerdAdventures The Angry Video Game Nerd II: ASSimilation]]'' parodies this trope with Sir Werepire, who transforms from a vampire to a wolf, to a [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Vampire Werewolf Knight]], to a [[OverlyLongGag Vampire Werewolf Knight GHOST]].

* Scotia, the final boss of [[VideoGame/LandsOfLore Lands of Lore: The Throne of Chaos]], as soon as the fight starts, transforms into giant toad, like the ones you encountered earlier in the game, then, after taking some damage, into snake-like monster and finally into invincible quadrupedal monster with toothed tentacles. The only way to beat the game is using the Ruby of Truth to prevent one of her transformations (ideally the first one).
* Most bosses from VideoGame/Terraria go through this. An early example is the Eye of Cthulhu, which changes from "slow laser projectiles" to "fast ramming" about halfway through the fight.

* In ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfSuperHeroes'', the final boss Onslaught has two forms. His first form is his standard armored form who strikes out with a variation of Magneto's attacks from ''VideoGame/XMenChildrenOfTheAtom''. His second form has him grow larger, dump the helmet in favor of a metallic face and resort with energy blasts and striking you with his Mighty Hand.

* Sigma does this at the end of every ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' game. So do the final bosses of every ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' and the first ''MegaManZX'' game.
