'''Basic Trope''': A creature or object is made of, resembles, or has distorted or traumatically injured anatomy.
* '''Straight''': A HumanoidAbomination has several extra deformed limbs and its facial features are twisted and vaguely animalistic. It uses tumorous OrganicTechnology.
* '''Exaggerated''': An EldritchAbomination appears to be made of a tangle of human organs and eyes, and is terraforming the area around it to resemble its homeland, the BloodyBowelsOfHell.
* '''Downplayed''': A beautiful HumanAlien has a disfiguring scar, and the architecture of her LivingShip resembles organic forms and anatomy [[UncannyValley just enough to be mildly unsettling]].
* '''Justified''': A creature or object is actually made from crudely assembled body parts.
* '''Inverted''': Though a creature or object is made of or resembles anatomy, it looks extremely natural and beautiful.
* '''Subverted''': A creature cloaked in shadow at first appears to be a tangle of limbs, but when it steps out of the shadows it is actually [[TotemPoleTrench one normal human sitting on another's shoulders]].
* '''Double Subverted''': At which point it unzips the GenuineHumanHide Person Suit and attacks.
* '''Parodied''': The horrific disfigurement is a bad case of acne.

* '''Enforced''': "Fans loved the dangling eye zombie last season; lets do more of those."
* '''Lampshaded''': "Why do eldritch abominations always look like a serial killer's compost pile? You'd thing at least once in a while one would go with something original, like a talking fire hydrant or something..."
** A sorcerer deliberately transforms Alice into a horrifyingly twisted shape to scare off anyone who might try to help a talking bunny or frog.
* '''Exploited''': Alice discovers that having three arms, scales, eyes on stalks, a PrehensileTail, and the ability to make an ogre cry by making a funny face is actually rather useful for an adventuress, once you find a nice bulky hooded robe for trips into town.
* '''Defied''': A mad scientist takes care to make his cyborg minions look aesthetically pleasing and keep them in good repair, studying the latest trends in jewelry design and plastic surgery.
* '''Conversed''': Alice and Bob discuss whether something having too many eyes is scarier than if it has too many limbs.
* '''Implied''': The virus victim is never fully shown on screen/described, but the character's reactions and the fragments we do see suggest they have been twisted into a horrifying form.
* '''Deconstructed''': The eldritch abomination which resembles a mass of limbs and organs can barely move or sense its surroundings. After flailing around for a while, it eventually dies from massive infection due to its exposed organs.
* '''Reconstructed''': The next one, learning from its moronic partner's mistakes, takes the time to plan out a mortal-brain-shattering form with an efficiently designed skeleton and metabolism, with usefully placed limbs and sensory organs, before manifesting on the mortal plane
* '''Played For Laughs''':
** The anatomy in question is laughably bizarre- for instance, having a foot for a head. Hard to pull off, due to the UncannyValley.
** Trying to cheat God in HowManyFingers results in [[Film/BruceAlmighty your hand having multiple fingers and losing your appetite for 3 weeks.]]
* '''Played For Drama''': [[Literature/ThePhantomOfTheOpera A character is horribly disfigured]], leaving them [[FreakinessShame ashamed]] and isolated from humanity.
