Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })In order to shapeshift, every part of your body would have to twist and contort. Typically, it’s not acknowledged that would hurt...a lot. In most media, Shapeshifting is done quickly and without undue pain for the shifter.
But that isn't always the case. Sometimes, those who take on another form are really going to feel it.
As the name implies, a Painful Transformation tends to be agonizing. While it probably won't leave permanent (physical) injuries, it's still not very pleasant.
There are generally two ways transforming can be painful:
Physical - The body is tortured during the transformation process. This is rather understandable, as one would imagine the bones and organs shifting around as having some sort of impact on the nerves.
Mental/Spiritual - The user's mind is overrun with horrid... whatever. We rarely get into a shapeshifter's head. Externally, it looks like they undergo a Freak Out every time they change shape. This may even be necessary to transform, in cases like that of the Incredible Hulk.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })If painful doesn't begin to describe the transformation, see Transformation Horror.
Usually not associated with Voluntary Shapeshifting, where the user generally knows enough to pick a quick and painless method of transformation. It's much more common with Involuntary Shapeshifters and Baleful Polymorphs. That said, it can be great drama to have a shapeshifter know a transformation will be painful but chooses to do it anyway. Done properly, it is always Worth It.

Twilight Princess:
Link's initial wolf transformation seems to be a dual homage to the transformation scenes in Majora's Mask and the transformation in An American Werewolf in London, but after that, no further cutscenes of that nature occur.
Midna's first transformation with the Fused Shadows has her being thrown around and screaming painfully.

When Rick puts on the Terror Mask for the first time in the Splatterhouse remake, it effectively destroys and remakes his muscular structure. He's in agony the entire time, and his flesh tears apart in the process. In fact, it causes so much damage to him that after A Taste of Power, the Terror Mask has to turn it down out of risk of killing him.

For the first half of the game Shadow Hearts, Yuri Hyuga convulses and screams when using his "Fusion" ability to combine with demons; whether the pain is mental or physical is unknown, but the former is implied. Partway through the game, he experiences an epiphany, whereupon he no longer suffers the Freak Out on using his power. The sequel repeats this pattern, with another epiphany.

In Detective Conan, Shinichi's transformation to Conan is painful each time he goes through it. Understandable, as his body was literally undergoing apoptosis. To give some idea, he constantly describes his de-aging as feeling like his bones are melting and begins to sweat profusely while clutching the left side of his chest, like he's having a heart attack. The first time he re-aged, he ended up bedridden and thought he was actually dying. Both types of transformation also cause him to burn up so much that his body is literally smoking (or maybe steaming) as it happens. Poor guy.

Just about every transformation sequence with Sonic turning into the Werehog in Sonic Unleashed looks kinda painful for Sonic. However, transforming back to his normal self is almost instantaneous and looks completely painless, with Sonic looking relieved and content afterward. There's a nice touch in that every time you change the time of day while in the Next-Gen version's hub worlds (either via Pause Menu or with hourglasses) it plays the appropriate transformation sequence as a Loading Screen. Averted with one cutscene — near the end, Sonic transforms into his Werehog form, and he barely even flinches. It's implied that he's used to the transformations by now.

The Legendary Super Saiyan's first transformation of Broly (in his first movie) and Kale (in Dragon Ball Super) seems to be extremely painful.
For Broly (DBS), the Wrath State causes him a great deal of physical pain due to his power erupting and his body expanding in muscle mass. He can be seen clutching his head in pain, and though it seems like it, the constant screaming is not entirely because he's angry, but due to the constant pain he's in. It only gets worse when Broly turns Super Saiyan, where he loses all trace of sanity.

Werewolves in The Parasol Protectorate face this problem when shifting between human and wolf forms. The physical pain never lessens, but older wolves get better at hiding it, culminating in Professor Lyall who is the most graceful shifter anyone in the cast has ever seen. The initial metamorphosis is also generally painful, but only because it normally involves an Alpha werewolf tearing you a new one.

The original Sega-CD version of Lunar: The Silver Star has Ghaleon transform into a demonic form after the heroes initially defeat him. While the camera pans to his feet just before he transforms, the fact that blood drips on the floor (seemingly from his eye based on the focus there seconds before he transforms and the fact that the sequel has a resurrected Ghaleon who has a prominent scar over his eye) and he's screaming in agony speaks for itself. But once the transformation finishes, his screams seamlessly transition into a deep Evil Laugh.

In Diablo II, the Dark Wanderer assumes Diablo's true form in the cinematic between Acts 3 and 4, and Marius describes the transformation as "not meant for mortal eyes": Lumps move under his skin, horns sprout from his brow, and his face stretches and twists as he howls in pain. Thankfully, he collapses and the rest of the transformation occurs hidden under his cloak.

When the title character of Naruto releases his Demon Fox power at the four tails level, his skin peels off before burning into ash, and blood covers his entire body to form the Kyuubi's body. Also, he loses consciousness because of the injuries to his body, and the Demon Fox takes control of it. Changing back is also incredibly painful as he temporarily has no skin. Even the lesser forms are painful to an extent. The chakra is poisonous to Naruto and constantly burns his skin, only the accelerated healing it grants preventing him from succumbing to the damage.

In The Wolfman (2010), turning into a werewolf involves a lot of snapping bones and blood from the mouth. Averted in the original 1941 version, where the most painful thing was the actor having to sit still long enough for the lap dissolves to be recorded. (Lon Chaney Jr. claimed they literally pinned his fingers down to the arms of the chair he sits in.)

Harry Potter:
Werewolf transformations are described as being excruciatingly painful. Animagi and Metamorphmagi, however, easily transform at will without the slightest discomfort because it is a magical skill instead of a disease.
The description of Polyjuice Potion transformation includes the phrase bubbling skin... creepy and painful.
This trope happens when characters have to drink skelegrow to regrow lost skeletal parts (Harry had to do so thanks to a botched attempt at mending his arm when it was broken during a Quidditch match), and it is stated that the process is extremely painful and would require the entire night at the infirmary.

The main character in Project Altered Beast. The Cut scenes that happen during several of his transformations have such lovely features as his eyeballs bursting, his teeth falling out, his arms exploding to make way for wings and so forth. You can watch them all here.

Supernatural: Shapeshifters have to go through this every time they switch forms, with teeth falling out, internal things rearranging with many a crunching, squelching sound, and finally having to peel their own skin off. Made more jarring and squicky because the first time we see it, the shapeshifter looks like one of the main characters.

In the Inuyasha Continuation Fic Beyond Tomorrow, Hanyuu endures this while undergoing her first transformation into a full-blooded human, just sitting there crying and groaning in agony while Kagome tries to comfort and distract her from the pain. Inu-Yasha, standing guard outside their hut, reflects that his own first human transformation was much the same. However, it's explicitly stated that only the first transformation is painful.

Triptych Continuum: In Triptych, Experienced by her, constantly. Whatever went wrong in the ascension attempt resulted in perpetual cyclical shifting between the three main pony races, moving from pegasus to unicorn to earth pony to pegasus again, and so on through the cycle.

In A Hairy Problem, the first werewolf transformation after somepony contracts lycanthropy is very painful, though the pain resides after subsequent transformations to simply being uncomfortable or nonexistant. Applejack (and Fair Vista in Sable Loam's flashback) experience this, and then Apple Bloom and Lightning Dust go through this as well in A Hairier Problem: Rise of the Furball. Applejack has the misfortune to go through this TWICE as her lycanthropy apparently went into regression at the conclusion of A Hairy Problem and Raspberry's dark magic outburst at her trial seems to have brought it back.

Spider-Man: The Animated Series: Spider-Man himself undergoes this during the "Neogenic Nightmare" arc. It starts with simple bouts of Power Incontinence, and is then followed with debilitating pain in his sides, which he describes as feeling like "getting a massage from Wolverine - from the inside." Finally, he sprouts four extra arms before painfully transforming into a monstrous half-man/half-spider creature. An alternate Man-spider shows up in one of the later episodes when Spider-man has to team up with his alternates. That Peter accepted the mutation fairly well but the villain forced him to be Man-spider at the worst time. Man-spider's later fate is unknown but presumably he's back to normal.

In Captain America: The First Avenger, two of these occur.
Firstly, Johann Schmidt: he is shown injecting himself with the unfinished Super Serum in a flashback — fire then burns around him and it cuts to his face clearly in pain and screaming, turning into the Red Skull.
Secondly, Steve Rogers. During Project Rebirth, he has the serum and Vita-Rays pumped through his body — about half way through the procedure it becomes a lot more intense and he is heard screaming from within the pod. The scientists immediately get up to shut down the machine — but Steve yells at them to keep going despite the pain (becoming a freaking man mountain when it's done).

And it's not just physical, either: every time he changes it feels as if his soul is being torn apart. After he gains control of the change it becomes less painful to shift, but one is left to wonder what would have happened if he never had...

John Connor's transformation into the T-3000 in Terminator Genisys. The infection that transforms him is nanomachine-based, and introduced through his mouth when the T-5000 grabs him. The initial scene shows glowing matter penetrating into Connor's head from around his mouth. A later flashback shows him mid-transformation, his flesh and bone being gradually turned into machines, all while he writhes in agony and the nanomachines make sickening crunching and buzzing noises. For a split second, his entire head is shown beginning to be converted.

The Incredible Hulk shows a different take on the classic Hulk-out; Here, Banner's transformation into The Hulk is massively unsynchronized, with body parts changing at different paces. In one scene, the bones in Bruce's shoulder grow faster than the rest, leaving his skin grotesquely distended for a brief moment.
In The Avengers, the Hulk's first transformation looks excruciating and takes a long time, because Banner is fighting it the whole time. The second time, he transforms intentionally and it only takes one smooth second, with no thrashing or screaming.

Dungeons & Dragons:
Normal shapechanging powers don't fall under this trope (in fact, the polymorph spell, metamorphosis psionic power or Wild Shape ability will instead heal some damage). However, the force shapechange spell (originally from the Oriental Adventures), which forces shapeshifters to return to their true form, causes wracking pains — even if the victims actually resist it.
3rd Edition has a sourcebook which expands on the rules and abilities of wizards and sorcerors called Tome and Blood. It gives the Prestige Class of "The Acolyte of the Skin", which is gained by summoning the essence of a fiend and binding it to your flesh. The illustration is not pretty.
According to many sources about the Nine Hells of Baator, while any type of promotion among devils is painful, the promotion to pit fiend (one of the leaders of the race) is the worst. For this to happen, a devil must spend 999 days in the Pit of Flame on the fourth layer of Baator. The Pit of Flame is usually used to punish devils, contains fire so hot that even they find it agonizing, and is considered one of the worst punishments that an insubordinate can receive. In other words, surviving three years of it is the perfect test for one who wants to join the ruling class of Hell.

The Legend of Zelda:
Whenever Link uses one of his transformation masks in Majora's Mask, it triggers a short cutscene in which he screams horribly as the transformation occurs. One Nintendo employee provided an explanation that Link's scream may be from emotional pain rather than physical, saying that Link is being overcome by the sudden and overwhelming feelings of sorrow residing in the mask. These cutscenes can be skipped with the press of a button once you've seen them for the first time.
Twilight Princess:
Link's initial wolf transformation seems to be a dual homage to the transformation scenes in Majora's Mask and the transformation in An American Werewolf in London, but after that, no further cutscenes of that nature occur.
Midna's first transformation with the Fused Shadows has her being thrown around and screaming painfully.

The first transformation sequence in The Company of Wolves, wherein a werewolf, having disappeared for several years, flies into a rage over being forgotten by his lover. He begins to tear his own face off before his flesh splits open by itself, revealing the intricate details of the human anatomy for a few moments before the muscles and bones begin to twist into the shape of a wolf's, the visceral display traumatizing the woman's children all the while. Then his former lover's husband returns to the house and beheads him. His head goes flying into a vat of milk, then resurfaces as a human head, his blood staining the milk pink. Delicious!
A later transformation sequence is taken from folklore: A jilted witch curses her ex-lover's entire wedding party to become wolves until she changes them back. Considering that the wolf-forms erupt through the victims' mouths, and the sheer volume of screaming involved — yeah, not pleasant.

Jelanda's transformation into a monster was offscreen in the original Valkyrie Profile. In the Updated Re-release for the PSP, however, it's rendered in CG, and you get to see this innocent (if bratty) teenage girl screaming and crying in pain and fear as her skin mutates into scales, and her limbs move of their own accord to slaughter the soldiers sent to rescue her while she's utterly helpless to do anything, until the monstrous flesh finally swallows her face.

In The Surge, the opening sequence shows the paraplegic Player Character literally Strapped to an Operating Table: The Auto Doc that is meant to be fitting them with their robotic exoskeleton has somehow failed to notice that the anaesthetic failed to take, and there's no emergency stop button.

My Little Pony: Equestria Girls:
In the first movie, from the look of it, Sunset Shimmer's transformation into a demon isn't enjoyable. The moment she put the crown on, she looks worried, then starts crying and screaming as she rises into the air. Friendship Games has Sunset admitting she was "overwhelmed" by the magic in the crown, so it's likely she was in pain as well.
Legend of Everfree: In Twilight's mindscape during the climax, her slow transformation into Midnight Sparkle, with wings sprouting from her back and a horn coming out of her forehead, doesn't look like a pleasant experience at all.

Gargoyles:
Derek has a particularly painful one when he turns into a mutate.
Demona is eventually given the ability to become human by day instead of stone. The change is agonizing both ways. It was actually painless the first time, though, as Puck, who gave her this ability, wanted to surprise her. When Macbeth (to whom she's magically connected) is nearby, he feels the transformation too.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians: While the scene following Percy's transformation into a Guinea pig is oddly funny, the way he describes the actual process hardly sounds fun.

Journey to Chaos:
The transformation caused by mana mutation is always painful because it reshapes the victim's body at random. All the while the brain is receiving signals of what's happening, including ones that it doesn't know how to interpret.
Looming Shadow has many examples of how painful this can be. Patrick Lumberson lay halfway between human and fitzger with mana sparking on him like electricity. Kallen encounters a monster in the midst of transforming and mistakes its screams of pain for threatening hisses. The reader sees into Eric's mind when it is shorting out from a mana explosion.
Bladi Conversion is a a Forbidden Technique, in part, because it is painful. The convertor replaces the genetic information in the converted's blood by overwriting it, in effect, replacing the converted's parents, biologically speaking. Zettai describes it as the most painful thing she's ever experienced.

Being Human:
George's werewolf transformation is agony. During the transformation, a werewolf has every organ in his body simultaneously stop: heart attack, kidney failure, liver failure, and so on. Meanwhile his bones are cracking and twisting against each other, and his skin and muscles are being brutally torn apart. He screams at first, until the change hits the throat and vocal chords. Normally a human in pain has defenses, such hormones that dull pain receptors, but those systems are gone too, leaving absolutely nothing to help with the pain. The second season implies that the body breaking down and rebuilding itself makes the werewolf slightly stronger after each transformation.
It's implied that when a person dies, they go to an unknown place where terrifying things happen to them. So when a person comes back as a vampire or ghost, they haven't had the best time.

In Animorphs it's often noted that morphing doesn't hurt...but really seems like it should, given how the characters can feel their bones crunching around as it happens. It is low-key Body Horror, though, as most people (Cassie being one exception) can't really control how the process works, causing parts of you to change at random and inconsistent rates. There is also a bit of the psychological element, too, depending on what kind of instincts they get when they're done.

Killer7 features Heaven Smiles as its regular enemies. While some of them are transformed humans, you rarely see the transformations. When you do, they usualy feature an instantaneous transformation or an ofscreen one. THEN we have Andrei Ulmeyda, whose transformation goes like this: The army, wishing to experiment on him to try and use Smiles as their own weapons, injects potent Heaven Smile tumors into him. The army triggers a small explosion for some reason, but then an even larger explosion occurs amd Ulmeyda asks why you didn't kill him at the injection and saying he "can't control this urge to kill." He then screams, his head then flies of his head, his acidic blood (acidic because of all the diseases he infected himself with to create vaccines) kills everyone in the army present, then his blood BRINGS HIS HEAD BACK ONTO HIS BODY AND PULLS UP HIS AFRO. Needless to say, Ulmeyda was in GREAT PAIN in his last moments of sanity.

In Dog Soldiers, the transformation into a werewolf is apparently very painful, as the unfortunate lycanthrope-to-come begins screaming and grunting as they stagger around the room, tripping over random objects, as fur begins to grow and they generally display more wolf-like characteristics as the change continues, growling instead of crying for example.

In Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, Yubel was originally a young child and a friend of a prince who would become Judai in a later life. He (or maybe she, it's hard to tell) volunteered to become Judai's spiritual guardian, and became the demonic Duel Spirit that was first seen in the third season. The process — which seemed to combine alchemy with surgery — was only seen briefly, but given what we did see — and hear — it likely was very painful for Yubel.

In Gaunt's Ghosts, the rogue Inquisitor Handro Rime has a collection of agents known collectively as the Sirkle. They all share the same face, to act as doubles for the Inquisitor, and it is implied the two scenes that he dies in are in fact his doubles. It's revealed that they use a special form of internal mechanism to alter the tension and position of muscles and even fracture and reset bone. It is repeatedly noted that it is incredibly painful, requires immense focus to maintain one face, and a moment of surprise causes them to reveal their true face. And whenever they transform, it occurs with a horrifying crunch of bone. Cue Hero Killer moments.

Pokémon: If the Pokedex entries in Pokémon Sun and Moon are anything to go by, Mega Evolutions are this to quite a few of the Pokémon if not all of them.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:
Donatello's secondary mutation from the "Good Genes" arc of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003). The transformation itself — which happens after a long illness — is fairly brief, but still enough to leave him screaming in pain.
In the 2012 cartoon, apparently, getting doused in Mutagen and undergoing a mutation is agonizing if you were human. When Mutagen Man is created, he screams that it burns.

In Mega Man Zero 4: Dr. Weil, when undergoing his final transformation, has tubes being jammed into him (with copious amounts of blood in the Japanese version), and shouting something that roughly translates from Japanese as either "Can you see this Pain?! You'll never understand any of it?!" or "Can you understand pain such as this?!". The drama tapes even include him screaming and grunting in pain as he transforms in such a way that could be considered Nightmare Fuel.
Meanwhile, in in the second game, Elpizo gives off an impressive (and horrifying) shriek of pain as he transforms into his One-Winged Angel form.

Not sure if it counts as a transformation, but in Hell Girl season 3, Yuzuki after being possessed by Ai goes through a surreal sequence where she convulses and screams as this egg-thing comes out of her back. The poor girl has to go through this every time Ai is contracted to send someone to Hell.

Jak and Daxter:
Jak being forced into his dark form, either by the Oracle or due to an overexposure of Dark Eco. The way he jerks and spasms as The Corruption takes over makes clear it's no picnic. Reverting back, though rather quickly, will have him grabbing his head and shuddering violently. In TLF it's implied that due to the massive amounts of Dark Eco present, even changing voluntarily will cause him so much pain that it will kill him.
Downplayed with Daxter's change from human to ottsel. "Man, that stung!"

During Wheatley's transformation in Portal 2, he constantly asks GLaDOS beforehand if it's going to hurt. When she says yes, he, knowing GLaDOS, questions whether or not she's just saying that before learning that, for once, she isn't. It's even more painful for GLaDOS, who can be heard struggling and crying in agony.

In The Secret World, it's not made explicit in the actual scenario, but lore clarifies that turning into one of the Bee-Imbued is excruciatingly painful — not that shooting laser beams out of your eyeballs during the initial stage of Power Incontinence looked pleasant. Worse: it's implied that pain never goes away, just characters grow accustomed to it and stop paying attention, and that's just the beginning.

D.N.Angel:
Hiwatari's transformation into Krad is very painful, one of the factors being the fact that he usually fights it quite hard. Contrast with Daisuke's relatively easy transformation in to Dark, only experiencing pain for the first time and when he grows his own wings in the final episodes.
In the manga, Daisuke feels pain when transforming after Risa was kidnapped off the Farris Wheel because he transformed with anger, not love. This could also explain why transforming is so painful for Satoshi. The one time he did transform with little-to-no pain was after diving to save Risa when she fell off the tower, transforming out of "love" (according to some fans).

Sonic the Hedgehog:
The classic games depict the characters screaming when transforming into their Super forms, implying that it's a painful process. This is averted in most modern games, however, suggesting that Sonic is used to it by that point.
Just about every transformation sequence with Sonic turning into the Werehog in Sonic Unleashed looks kinda painful for Sonic. However, transforming back to his normal self is almost instantaneous and looks completely painless, with Sonic looking relieved and content afterward. There's a nice touch in that every time you change the time of day while in the Next-Gen version's hub worlds (either via Pause Menu or with hourglasses) it plays the appropriate transformation sequence as a Loading Screen. Averted with one cutscene — near the end, Sonic transforms into his Werehog form, and he barely even flinches. It's implied that he's used to the transformations by now.
Sonic and the Secret Rings: During the Final Boss, both Sonic and Erazor Djinn go super using the World Rings. Judging by the screaming from both of them, as well as the straight-up Body Horror that Erazor endures on his end, it's not pretty.

In Raindancer, Izuku's first experience with his Quirk began when pressure began to build inside of him to the point that he felt like he was going to explode. He then began to uncontrollably spew an endless amount of water from within his own body, drowning from within as he looked as his mother with tears in his eyes. Then his entire body quivered as it began completely turning into water and collapsed into a puddle. Luckily, he was perfectly alright afterwards and all subsequent transformations are quick and painless, but the event was terrifying for a four-year-old to experience.

In Street Sharks Redux, the canon effects of gene slamming (see Western Animation) are made even worse. The protagonists feel sick, sore, and confused almost immediately after waking up, which only escalates as they try to figure out just what happened to them. When John starts changing, he's in too much pain to move and basically collapses on the ground. It's later mentioned that the brothers had relatively painless and simple transformations and that adults experienced mutations even worse.

The Mask. The first time Stanley puts on the mask. All the times it occurs later it's off-screen, for a good reason. The Mask Pressbook has this to an extreme in their test images of Jim Carrey turning into the Mask. One of them looks like it was borrowed from The Howling or American Werewolf in London.

SpongeBob SquarePants:
In "I Was a Teenage Gary", SpongeBob is accidentally injected with snail plasma by Squidward to cure his pet snail, Gary. Squidward ensures SpongeBob that he'll be fine, and he believes him. But the next day, he starts exhibiting snail-like behavior, including meowing, eating snail food, and walking slowly. His fears are turned into reality as he goes through the gradual transformation into a snail.
In the episode "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy IV", SpongeBob accidentally puts Designated Victim Squidward through a series of increasingly painful and graphic transformations (burning, being cut in half, being skinless, and some that were so grotesque they were only heard offscreen as sound effects that don't bear thinking about) while trying to undo the effects of a "small ray".
"The Inside Job" has Plankton going inside SpongeBob's body and attaches a sucking helmet to his heart to gain information about the Krabby Patty formula. This ends up causing him to turn into a small version of SpongeBob, with a sequence complete with eyelashes breaking through his skin and his teeth shattering to make way for two goofy buck teeth. Then, at the end, Sponge!Plankton gets attached to Patrick and we get a similar sequence where he becomes a dumb pink plankton.

El Goonish Shive:
This is a problem for chimera; it figures prominently in the character of Vlad, who could not change form with risking his life. Part of what makes Grace (Shade Tail) unique is that transforming doesn't hurt her as much as it does others (by design, she naturally releases painkillers when transforming). Vlad is eventually put into a human form via TFG (or the equivalent thereof), thereafter refusing to try transforming again, both out of fear of this trope and that she will be unable to turn back since it wasn't possible on her own.
Interestingly, the transformation gun doesn't have this effect, even on normal humans (though it is implied that it did before Tedd perfected it; when Elliot uses the transformation belt, which is based on an earlier version of the TFG, he is incapacitated for several minutes — and his later cat-hybrid transformations reflect this as well). "Ok, I need an aspirin, a ball of yarn, and thirty-seven pounds of catnip, stat!"

Whenever Link uses one of his transformation masks in Majora's Mask, it triggers a short cutscene in which he screams horribly as the transformation occurs. One Nintendo employee provided an explanation that Link's scream may be from emotional pain rather than physical, saying that Link is being overcome by the sudden and overwhelming feelings of sorrow residing in the mask. These cutscenes can be skipped with the press of a button once you've seen them for the first time.

Ariel from Drowtales has this as a natural limit on her hereditary shapeshifting power. It is strongly implied that changing her bodily structure too fast or too severely causes pain akin to a person with braces having their wires over-tightened, and she's specifically warned that if she's not careful she could shift a vital organ to the wrong place and potentially seriously injure or kill herself. She gets around the problem by primarily shapeshifting her hair, which of course has no nerve endings.

In Scryed, Kazuma and eventually Ryuho, Martin Zigmarl and Straight Cougar damage their bodies when they go into their alter forms. Usually, the scars appear where the armor does. For example Kazuma gets scars on his arm, then on his face and even part of his hair starts to change. By the end of the series, he doesn't even open his right eye unless he's in his alter form (which he might possibly not even have outside of his alter form). They look pretty scary during the last fight.

In the first movie, from the look of it, Sunset Shimmer's transformation into a demon isn't enjoyable. The moment she put the crown on, she looks worried, then starts crying and screaming as she rises into the air. Friendship Games has Sunset admitting she was "overwhelmed" by the magic in the crown, so it's likely she was in pain as well.

Steven Universe: Future: While at the beginning he just glows pink, in the second half of the epilogue, Steven's body starts to randomly swell up whenever he is in a great emotional distress, because of his untreated trauma and PTSD caused from everything he experienced in the original series. It reaches a breaking point in "Everything's Fine", where he has a spectacular mental breakdown, which the episode ends with pink spikes violently bursting out of his back, starting his corruption into a Kaiju-like rampaging monster.

In Amazing Fantasy, the spider bite that gives Izuku his powers wracks his entire body with pain, gives him intense nausea, and makes him sweat profusely while feeling deathly cold at the same time. He ends up blacking out and going into a coma for two days after being rushed to the hospital.

Werewolf transformations in the Mercy Thompson series are quite painful and are often rather prolonged as well, with some of them taking around fifteen minutes or so. As werewolves are already rather short-tempered, it's generally a good idea to tread carefully around a recently-changed werewolf until they get themselves back under control.
Averted with Mercy herself — as a walker, a type of Native American shapeshifter, switching between her coyote form and human is painless and nearly instantaneous. Charles Cornick, a werewolf who inherited some powers from his Native American mother, still feels pain when he shifts, but his transformations are much faster and smoother than normal.
One werewolf is kidnapped and attempts to change while under the influence of copious amounts of drugs, which means she gets stuck halfway through. She starts leaking bodily fluids before managing to finish the change with the help of the almost-full moon.

The Parasite Eve series has a handful these transformations to emphasize just how unnatural the game's monsters are; in the first game, the first actual non-boss encounter is a rat which is put through a thoroughly traumatic transmutation; later on, a poor German Shepherd is given the same treatment. Not recommended for the weak of stomach.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses:
Transforming into a Demonic Beast via Crest Stone is demonstrated by Miklan, who tries wielding the Lance of Ruin without a Crest, to be both physically agonizing and terrifying.
In the Azure Moon Route, the same can also be said of Edelgard's transformation into Hegemon Edelgard, but she thinks of the pain as nothing compared to the torture she suffered in her past.

Dr. Franklin's Island by Ann Halam, two girls get turned into a fish and a bird. The narrator describes this as being really uncomfortable. The bird-girl's sternum goes clean through the skin of her chest, not a pretty picture. The transformation back is much easier on both of them, but the fish-girl is sick and uneasy for much of it and the bird-girl spends five days in something like a coma.

Digimon Frontier: The Beast Spirit Evolutions have a painful yell as the characters evolve. Kouji in particular will sometimes suffer pain and/or weakness after de-transforming, whether the transformation was painful or not, leading to Fanwank about what just what it is that makes it so hard on Kouji alone. Adding to this, Kouji and Kouichi most likely go through the most painful transformations of them all. This may be because the Beast Spirits bend their bones, flesh, and bodies to match their evolution. Everyone else is rather human-shaped while these two have to suffer a complete bone re-structure.

In Quake IV, the player character gets "Stroggified" into one of the enemy zombie-cyborgs, but is rescued before brainwashing and becomes a Phlebotinum Rebel. The Stroggification involves getting his legs cut off on a Conveyor Belt o' Doom. Made all the worse by the player still having some control during the transformation but are unable to free them, as well as having to see (and especially hear) one the fellow Marines undergo the treatment first.

Looming Shadow has many examples of how painful this can be. Patrick Lumberson lay halfway between human and fitzger with mana sparking on him like electricity. Kallen encounters a monster in the midst of transforming and mistakes its screams of pain for threatening hisses. The reader sees into Eric's mind when it is shorting out from a mana explosion.

The remake version of The Fly:
After a slow, humiliating and painful metamorphosis from a healthy man into a sickly decaying half-insect wretch, Jeff Goldblum's gruesome and heartbreaking final transformation into "Brundlefly" has his skin peel off in chunks, his joints crack audibly into reverse position, and his skull split open to reveal its new insect shape.
In the sequel, his son Martin's transformation averts this. Most of the transformation takes place in a cocoon. Martin is then reborn as a powerful insectoid man-beast who takes bloody revenge on the company that treated him like a lab-rat his entire life.

Dragon Ball Z:
Freeza's transformations in particular tended to involve a lot of screaming and incredibly painful-looking contortions.
Buu's de-transformation from Super Buu to Kid Buu consisted of nothing but standing around and screaming for a very long time, but that may have been less physical pain and more that he was devolving from a fairly intelligent Ax-Crazy to a mindless Omnicidal Maniac.
Ditto for Goku's first-time Super Saiyan 1 and 3 transformations. Goku's transformation into SSJ3 however is more exhausting than painful though.
The Legendary Super Saiyan's first transformation of Broly (in his first movie) and Kale (in Dragon Ball Super) seems to be extremely painful.
For Broly (DBS), the Wrath State causes him a great deal of physical pain due to his power erupting and his body expanding in muscle mass. He can be seen clutching his head in pain, and though it seems like it, the constant screaming is not entirely because he's angry, but due to the constant pain he's in. It only gets worse when Broly turns Super Saiyan, where he loses all trace of sanity.

In Disney's The Little Mermaid, Ariel's tail is literally torn in half as she is changed into a human. The facts that it occurs in silhouette and the two ragged halves become shapely legs almost instantly does little to ease the horror of the scene. And of course, Disney being what it is, this is actually toned down from the original fairy tale. Not only was the transformation excruciating, but afterwards she felt like she was walking on knives the entire time she was transformed.

If one of the eponymous Transformers hasn't transformed in an exceedingly long time, or is banged up badly enough, transforming can hurt like hell, or, in extreme cases, be fatal.
When Waspinator is put into Blackarachnia's transwarp machine in Transformers Animated, he screams and his hands can be seen clawing at the machine. Blackarachnia casually comments that it might hurt a bit.
Most upgrades the Transformers experience in Beast Wars seem to come off this way. Everyone's transition to Transmetal in the season 2 premier was accompanied by screams and bodies collapsing. The changes to Transmetal 2 seemed even worse.
The Transformers: In "The Burden Hardest to Bear", Scourge takes on the Matrix of Leadership, which makes him extremely powerful, but warps his body, which looks extremely painful and even makes him cry.
