Centaurification is a fanwork trope in which a character is assumed to have the ability to become a centaur part time via shapeshifting.

Unlike with animal transformation fic in centaur fic being a centaur is often considered a natural state for the character (usually this makes it AU, though some comic characters are subject to this in canon, and sometimes they are even more complicated such as post-Crisis Comet who is a flying centaur-angel with a fluid gender...) And unlike with most 'plain' canon centaurs (such as Firenze in Harry Potter) a character subject to centaurification is not in centaur-form all the time but a shapeshifter, thus reconciling canon events happening with the character's centaur nature. Though permanent centaur AUs probably exist as well. (Are there any? I've only ever read the part time centaur ones...)
