Pages in this category should be moved to subcategories where applicable.
This category may require frequent maintenance to avoid becoming too large. It should directly contain very few, if any, articles and should mainly contain subcategories.
Maintained to separate fiction - While some may argue that the category ofFictional Shapeshiftersis superfluous, this category is maintained to separate shapeshifters appearing inworks of fiction(i.e. characters created by a specific author in specific work) and those fromlegend, mythology or folklore(for instance, the trickster gods of various mythologies).
Must be a defining trait - Characters with access to vast powers (i.e. magical spells, advanced technology, genetic engineering, etc.) who are theoretically capable of this superhuman feature or ability - but whom have neither made regular use, nor provided a notable example, of this extraordinary or supernatural feat - are not listed here.
Fictional characters with the power to change their shape, often assuming or impersonating the identities of another. This can also include characters with the power to glamour, appearing as though they have changed shape.
