* BalefulPolymorph: Doesn't come up too often, but She has a particular fondness for this that can only be rivaled by Circe. Best not to cross her when she considers this as an option. Some examples include:
** Threatening to turn a man into a toad if he doesn't back down from an argument. He
does have the ability to transform people to animals. One such instance was where just that, knowing she can and will do it.
** She
turned an entire audience into bats to attack ComicBook/TheJoker.
** Turning a scary ogre-man into a fluffy bunny.
** Turning
three girls into doves for annoying her, and mentioned she was "good mentioning she's good with frogs too".as well.
** The Vertigo novel ''Zatanna: Everyday Magic'' highlights this. She mentions turning hecklers into warthogs, telling kids that if they sell her autograph it'll turn them to pumpkins, and when facing off against a witch who turns her one-night stands into toads (including Constantine), she retorts by saying that Zatanna has filled ponds with her ex-boyfriends, which doesn't sound that far-fetched. Then Zatanna turns her into a sloth to achieve victory.
** When Harley Quinn was annoying her, she stated that it only takes a simple spell to turn her into a worm and feed her to a seagull. Harley backed out from there.
** On a girls night out, she tells Batgirl that she's going with her and Wonder Woman whether she likes it or not. Batgirl asks if she will turn her into a toad if she refuses, and Zatanna says she's keeping her options open.
