Bob is about to face the evil witch Alice. He readies his sword, but Alice simply casts a spell on Bob, who turns into a lifeless doll. Bob was a victim of being De Animated, or being turned into an inanimate object. If the victim is still "alive" during the transformation, it can become And I Must Scream. Sister Trope to Baleful Polymorph, where the victim is turned into a less dangerous, but still living form. Super Trope of Taken for Granite.
