Impactful Anime Transformations

10. Birth Of Devil Man

Devil Man Crybaby

Birth Of Devil Man

We begin the list with Devil Man from the anime Devil Man Crybaby. Devil Man Crybaby starts off with the titular anti-hero born. A demonic possession attempt goes awry as even the mighty Armand finds himself no match against the heart and fortitude of Akira. This was the birth of a new brand hero and it happens with no shortage of surreal imaginary. I'd love to say this first transformation would set the bar for the audience as to what kind of imagery and animation they can expect from the series, but I find myself corrected at every term. If you think the first episode has enough messed up scenes then you haven't seen anything yet.

9. Alucard's Level Zero Release

Hellsing Ultimate

Alucard's Level Zero Release

At number 9 it is Alucard's level 0 release from the anime Hellsing Ultimate. Depending on the viewers, Alucard can be cool and badass vampire of a living nightmare personified or maybe both. One of its crowning moment comes in the unveiling of his level Zero release. In this form, Alucard releases millions of his familiars that can consume the entirety of London. The secret behind level Zero's release to be every soul that the Vampire devoured. This is truly the form worthy of being used for the climax. The following fight between Anderson and Alucard is set to be the peak of the entire series. This fight shows two fighters going at each other with everything they've got. The fight was epic but I think we will leave that discussion for another day.

8. Might Guy Eight Gates

Naruto Shippuden

Might Guy Eight Gates

Might Guy unleashing the full power of eight gates is ironically eight on the list. A supposedly powerful character who's is being relegated to a goofy mentor role. Rock Lee's master finally gets its time to shine in a showdown against Madara. The unstoppable shinobi with his full force with the 8th gate technique is certainly is one of the most impactful transformations in the series. Might Guy at the full power of 8 gates technique was able to go with toe-to-toe against Madara. Despite, not being able to put down invincible villain, the transformation gets the acknowledgement from a powerful being such a Madara. The form truly is a testament to his awesomeness and his hidden power that's been withheld for most of the series.

7. Luffy Gear 4th

One Piece

Luffy Gear 4th

At lucky 7 we have Luffy gear 4th. During the battle against Doflamingo, Luffy rages toward the villain and activates the gear 4 to save the day. Calling the form nothing but Luffy appearing bigger and intimidating. Doflamingo brushes it out before getting handed no-hold-barred beat down by the straw-hat pirate. Now that is the pretty common scene in Shonen anime but seeing the villain getting his ass handed to him so handily feels so cathartic in a way. In the end, it's the King Kong Gun that finally puts an end to Doflamingo's reign of terror. Shattering his trademark sunglasses in the process.

6. Mob ???%

Mob Psycho 100

Mob ???%

Sixth on the list is Mob's transformation vs Hanazawa. Who could forget the Mob's first entering after Hanazawa strangles him? The quick beat down afterword makes the moment even sweeter and even more memorable. It's the state that only manifests itself upon unconsciousness and we can describe it to be the way of Mob unleashing all power at once. Mob's eyes turned into a hollow shade of white and it was the most powerful form in terms of destructive power.

5. Super Galaxy Gurren Lagann

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

Super Galaxy Gurren Lagann

At number 5 we will see Super Galaxy Gurren Lagann. Gurren Lagann has no shortage of transformations.  Among all those, the most memorable transformation, in my opinion, is Super Galaxy Gurren Lagann. The war against the anti-spirals is in full throttle. It is Kittan who rises up to challenge and attempts a suicide run it. Kittan's sacrifice isn't in vain as the destruction of a death spiral machines completed and the resulting spiral power gives birth to a new form.

4. Ichigo's Hollow Transformation


Ichigo's Hollow Transformation

At number 4 is Ichigo's hollow transformation from the anime Bleach. With Ichigo's death at the doorstep, the Latent Hollow awakens from within him feeding him on his desire to protect and rescue Orihime. The Hollow takes over giving Ichigo this intimidate new form. In a flash, the tides of battle turn and Ichigo in his new form makes short work for all. Even though selling the Espada's supposedly all-power lance attack. It's one of the reminiscent of those classic evil forms that the hero would rather not tap into. Not for this form's uncontrollable nature, it would surely come in handy in the upcoming battles.

3. Goku Goes Super Saiyan

Dragon Ball Z

Goku Goes Super Saiyan

Who could forget the first time Goku went Super Saiyan? when even a Spirit Bomb wasn't able to put down the mighty Frieza, all hopes seems lost. That point Frieza has been able to overcome everyone who comes across his path including Goku, Vegeta, Piccolo, and Gohan. The death of Crillon is the one moment that ultimately pushes Goku past his limits and transforms him into the thing the Frieza had always feared. Nonetheless, I doubt that you can argue anything can't beat this initial Goku's transformation in term of how impactful and iconic it was on its debut.

2. Gon's Transformation

Hunter x Hunter (2011)

Gon's Transformation

At the number 2 slot, we have Gon's transformation from the anime Hunter x Hunter. Gon really been through a lot, hasn't he? To say that the Chimera Ant plays a big role in shifting the Gon into a mentally unstable would be an understatement. For me what makes this transformation notable are the circumstances. As I said earlier, most Shonen hero's powerup and transform to overcome that last hurdle to protect those they love, not in this case, Gon's transformation comes at the moment when he finally concedes that he doesn't feel anything anymore. At this point, his battle is no more about Killua nor is it about Kite's loss. It is all about the sole purpose to kill Pitou. Gon's transformation was the most captivating and memorable scene in the entire series.

1. Reiner and Bertholdt & Eren

Attack On Titan

Reiner and Bertholdt & Eren

Our final top moment is revealing of the Colossal and Armoured titans. Taking the page out of the book of quotes, who knew that humanity's greatest enemy was themselves all along. Such is the dilemma faced by the characters in the attack on titan upon the revelation that two of the monsters that have been the bane of their life for so long the Colossal and Armoured are actually among them. Midway through the second season Bertholdt and Reiner revealed to have been working with Annie. It is even more chilling to have the reveal to be told to us straight up. Yes, Reiner who's been big brother figure to the characters, straight up tells Eren about his and Bertholdt's true identity, not long before shifting themselves into the two of the most iconic titans in the series's history. This reveal somehow came out of nowhere, that's what exactly makes him so impactful.
