Does it count as this trope if the bad guy just grows really big but doesn't change shape (example: Apocalypse from the X-men)

Isn't that Hulking Out?

Question: Would a villain transforming their servant or bodyguard still count as this trope?

Pokemon has two examples like this (Ghetsis transforming Kyurem into a fused form and Lysandre mega evolving his Gyarados), but I'm not sure they count because it's not the actual villain transforming.

In fact, it's gotten to be somewhat of an arms race: thanks to the popularity of Frieza in 1991, three-form bosses are now somewhat common, and those games going for "epic" will sometimes go for even more.

A: Frieza had 4 forms, arguably 5 if you consider his buff Ultimate form separate.

B: I honestly doubt that he really is what inspired three form bosses.

what happend to:

(For extra effect, try listening to this while reading this page.)

it's both awsome and funny.

I ask instead of just editing because I am guessing there is a good reason and I just want to know.

It doesn't seem there was. It was just removed by an editor without an explanation (which probably means he just didn't like it), and without either community or moderator support.

Using a musical theme to illustrate a trope is also done on several other pages, and "One Winged Angel" does evoke the image of a villain turning into a huge monster. I'm restoring it. I'm re-adding the earlier version however, since it was more menacing.

If there is any objection, feel free to note it.

That music is awesome. For the record, I support the line being back on the page.

Does the Robot form of Preston from Wallace & Gromit in "A Close Shave" count? I always thought the climatic battle in that short was a bit like the one in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit".

Is the new pic crossing tropes? The caption pretty much seals it as an example of the other trope so shouldn't there be a better one with a different example?

The Trope Repair Shop discussion is can someone pull the header off? And tell me how to do it, for future reference.
01:28:54 PM Dec 2nd 2010
When the thread is locked the header will disappear.

Okay, yeah, its been almost two months with no activity and it still hasn't disappeared. Am I missing a thread that everyone is still arguing on?

Sorry but the trope names should change.It is named from a character that most Nintedo, Sega Console and PC owners of the era are at best mildly familiar .And that just ingores the book readers, movie goers, web cartoon readers, those that do NOT play RPG's,Those that DONT play JPRG's because what those have in common,?They have never played FFVII, they dont know who the f**ck is sephiroth and why he is a trope namer.

Trope rename discussions go in the Trope Repair Shop in the forums.

Whos' Sephiroth?
12:38:59 PM Feb 18th 2012
Agreed though, the title is not indicative at all and it is not even correct. One Winged Angel was a song.
12:38:26 PM Jan 22nd 2016
Not to mention Cefka did it before Sephiroth.

Thinking maybe someone should delete the Willow/Buffy the Vampire Slayer example. The mayor is all well and good, but Willow's Evil Costume Switch/Evil Makeover really isn't this trope at all.

Looks like the Final Fantasy XI examples need to be updated.
