* OneWingedAngel: OneWingedAngel:
**
Sven does this ''twice''. After fighting him midway through the Zoth Shrine, you fight him again at the end as he transforms into a large sword-wielding beast called Chargon. When you face him in Fort Fryght, he's morphed into a large Fire Golem.

Also, Draquin, the evil penguin boss of Chilly. After defeating him in his one-eyed serpentine form, he invokes the fourth stage.Overlord's powers to morph into a two-headed dragon.

''Popful Mail'' is a side-scrolling action-adventure game, originally made by Creator/NihonFalcom (developers of the ''VideoGame/{{Ys}}'' series) for NEC's PC-88 home computer, and then ported to the PC-98, UsefulNotes/SegaCD and UsefulNotes/PCEngine CD systems. Creator/WorkingDesigns worked on the localization for the North American Sega CD version. There's also a little-known SuperFamicom version which is essentially a ReformulatedGame due to the remixed area layouts and some plot structure differences, but it still recognizably contains the same overall story as other incarnations.

* GraphicsInducedSuperDephormed: The original PC-88 and 98, plus PC-Engine releases didn't have the hardware to render the tall, busty Mail on the cover. Characters tend to be small if nicely animated. The Sega CD release averts this.
