'''Basic Trope''': Non-human character becoming human.
* '''Straight''': [[TeamPet Leo the Lion]] is hit with a magic spell and gets turned into a human.
* '''Exaggerated''': Nearly every animal gets turned into human beings to the point that actual, non-human animals are very rare and nobody knows whether the meat they eat is sentient.
* '''Downplayed''': Leo is given [[CivilizedAnimal the mind of a human but not the body]].
* '''Justified''':
** The Hero's TrueCompanions needed a warrior who has 'the strength of a lion', and TeamPet Leo fit the bill.
** PinocchioSyndrome
* '''Inverted''':
** {{Animorphism}}
** WasOnceAMan.
* '''Subverted''': Leo didn't turn into a human; it was all a mishap.
* '''Double Subverted''': Until another spell hits - and he was a human.
* '''Parodied''': ???
* '''Zig Zagged''': ???
* '''Averted''': No non-human character ever gains human form.
* '''Enforced''': Leo is turned into a human because the writer faced MoralGuardians complaining about a lion being in a populated place.
* '''Lampshaded''': Leo gets turned into a human, and everyone around comments about it.
* '''Invoked''': Curious about what humankind is like, Leo asks a wizard to turn him human.

* '''Implied''': The FiveManBand is hit with a BalefulPolymorph spell, and they all turn to animals... with the exception of Leo, who's missing but has a young boy in his place.
* '''Deconstructed''': Leo has great difficulty adjusting to the human body and mindset that came with the change, as well as to the human customs, and asks to get changed back. Alternatively, he eventually gets himself killed while trying to find a reversal spell.
* '''Reconstructed''': He does have problems adjusting, but eventually comes to terms with his new form, albeit with some limitations (such as limited use of language).
* '''Plot Foundation''': Leo's sudden change in shape is meant to explore things about him that would be much harder to demonstrate while he's a lion.
