This is a great exercise @glennbecker.
Not to be difficult but for me the more modifiers you use to describe the thing being transformed into, the further it feels like a wholesale "becoming" transformation.
If I say to my son, "you're mature enough now to become a college student" that has a less encompassing quality than "you're a man now" -- even if "you're a man" is more general and leaves open for interpretation what exactly that means.
Whenever possible, I think using a more precise noun solves this (e.g. "becoming a tyrant" rather than "becoming tyrannical").
is interesting because the transformation is now not into a king, but into a ruthless person (ruthless enough to become a king!).
This sounds like it could be Being, depending on someone means by "embody".
So my take home from reading this list is that most of them seem great but I wouldn't want to lose the more general gist as well.
Using gists for me is never really "plug-n-play" -- I'm always reading through the long list and comparing, and then putting one in that feels close (or suggesting one). Seeing that "becoming a king" and "becoming a vampire" are both "becoming" is what helps me figure out what "becoming" means in the context of my own story.
I realize that's different from what some writers might do though.
