Go To

"Dream casts a human shadow when it occurs to him to do so."

Cordo: I don't understand. Why was it necessary for him to make himself look human?
Doctor: Well, if you'd seen a Usurian you'd know what I mean. They look like sea kale with eyes. I mean, would you take orders from a lump of seaweed?
Doctor Who, "The Sun Makers"

"I don't like to brag, but if I appeared to you just as God - how I really am - what I really am - your mind couldn't grasp it."

Alien: Oh, all right. Look, I'm not really your father, OK? I'm an alien who was sent here at this appointed time to kill that guy because he would have destroyed all life as you know it.
Rusty Venture: What?!
Alien: I took the form of your dad because I figured it would be easier to accept. I didn't want to stress you out. End of the world, life on other planets, blah blah blah.
Rusty Venture: Why.. you... SON OF A BITCH! Do you know what you just put me through? What the fuck were you thinking? What kind of fucked up planet are you from where you think showing up as my dead fucking father is supposed to make me feel any better?!
Alien: Okay, take it easy.
Rusty Venture: You prick!
Alien: Look, I just saved your entire planet.
Rusty Venture: PRICK!
Alien: All right, fine. You wanna see? Here! [Alien reveals his true form] There! That would've been better? If I'd shown up like that out of nowhere. Look at you! You practically crapped your pants. Except him, he crapped his pants!

Avatar of the Tree, Guild Wars 2

"I suppose I am a bit too much for [Abis Maul]'s limited mind. [assumes human form] I trust you'll find me a little less overwhelming now?"

"See them now, the most beautiful forms humanity has to offer. No. That is an illusion. See how disturbingly gorgeous they are — features too perfect, too symmetrical — bodies too long, too muscular. You cannot look away. No. That is an illusion also. See their magnificence is revealed! See the exotic horns, tiny fangs, eyes of no colour found in this reality. Sense their primal, R-Complex sensuality. See their most amazing features — wings of rainbow haze of shifting shades sliding in prismatic displays that hypnotise and lure. No. This too is an illusion. See their malevolence revealed! Pure angels of hell. Tortured wings and burnt flesh and charnel bouquet. You still cannot look away. No. This is not their true from either. No one has ever actually seen an incubus or succubus, only the illusions."
The Buzzing, The Secret World

Carlson: What are you? Why are you so human, so perfect? What were the bird-creatures on the [space]ship?

By the time I started school, I'd perfected the all-American boy next-door look. But at home, alone with my folks, I'd relax and be me. I wasn't being a phony or ashamed of who I was. It was simply less awkward that way.
Morph, Exiles #80: World Tour - Future Imperfect Part 2

"I Have Many Names. The Sovereign of Pestilence, The Warden of Decay, The Mistress of Flies, The... Wait, where are my manners? I have a guest, I should make myself more presentable. Here. I think you will find this form a little more comfortable to converse with."

John: What do you look like?
Indrid Cold: It depends on who's looking.

The Dark Overlord: I have disguised my true form, which would be considered... hideous and revolting, here.
Beverly Switzler: Lucky for the people eating.

"The last time I appeared without warning in this form someone died of fright. Perhaps I should take a friendlier appearance."
