** Beldum, which looks like a dumbbell, plays with this trope. By merging itself with another Beldum, it creates a Metang. [[GameplayAndStorySegregation According to the Pokedex]], in order to create a Metagross, which looks like your typical HumongousMecha, you've got to use four of these fellas. The intermiedary form, Metang, looks like a mecha without legs.

* ''Fanfic/FlamesShade'' depicts this behavior-wise with [[LittleBitBeastly Faunus]] cubs. While adult Faunus can [[MyInstinctsAreShowing mostly]] behave like humans, very young Faunus have no such qualms. Ace is a particularly feral cat Faunus infant who plays like a cat, bites, snarls, and generally acts like a kitten.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/AlfredJKwak'' Dolf goes from a FunnyAnimal with almost human-like anatomy but with no clothes (as a child), to a still unclothed and anthropomorphic but decidedly more crow-like appearance with visible tail and wings -that are always clearly wings while everybody else's wings turn into hands when convenient- and ability to fly when many other bird characters can't or won't (as a teen), back to FunnyAnimal / FullyDressedCartoonAnimal (as an adult). When it comes to other characters, the trope is played with, like Pikkie, who retains his very magpie-like anatomy his whole life.
