"Baleful Polymorph"? Maybe I'm missing something here, but why isn't it "Baleful Morph"? I'm used to thinking of a "polymorph" as an organism that can change its own shape or appearance at will, into many possible forms, like Odo from STTTNG. This seems to be about some entity changing another entity into one other thing without the second entity willing it. "Poly" as a root means "many". Something not right here. But I'm a FNG, what do I know? :)
There's a lot about the animal being useless in combat - is there a separate supertrope about turning someone into any animal? For example, this trope was deleted from Brave because someone is transformed into a pretty fearsome bear.
Involuntary Shapeshifting I think? Or maybe Metamorphosis.
Change page quote perhaps? Theres a line from the same song as the current quote that i think fits this trope better.
