* In ''Videogame/{{Warframe}}'', there's the Sentient faction whose units can adapt to four damage types, which technically give them near immunity (95%) to those damage types.

[[spoiler:This can be nullified by the Operator's Void Beam, resetting all their resistances. Good luck figuring this out by yourself, however, because not only [[GuideDangIt you're not informed of the beam's property anywhere in the game]], but switching from your fully armored and combat-ready warframe to your squishy human form in the face of a LightningBruiser enemy [[ViolationOfCommonSense sounds like a bad idea through and through]]!]]

** This is also believed, both in-universe and out, to be how some Tyranid lifeforms came to be. The psyker-like Zoanthropes are thought to be derived from Eldar psykers, and the extremely resilient Tyrant Guard may have been cultivated from Space Marines.

* In ''Manga/StealthSymphony'', this is protagonist Jig's main power, combined with CatchAndRelease: Any attack targeted at him done with intent to harm him will be automatically caught and nullified by a backpack-like device [[ClingyMacguffin stuck to his back]], which will then generate the same type of attack at double power back at the attacker. In spite of how overpowered this sounds, however, it has a number of loopholes, which Jig's enemies [[LoopholeAbuse quickly learn to exploit]].

** The Dragon Ball Z RPG for the SNES had this implemented: If a Saiyan character won a battle with 5 or less HP remaining, they would gain a level immediately no matter what.

** Ulquiorra's body adapts to threats whenever he heals. For example, when his head gets damaged, his brain redistributes itself through his body so that he cannot suffer brain damage anymore. When his eyes get damaged, his body sprouts eyes all over. He still loses because healing and adapting drains his energy until he can't do it anymore; it just takes a lot of work to get that far.
** The Hogyoku grants Aizen "Intelligent Design", the ability to actively alter himself to counter his enemies.

* Humanity itself is also like this, compared to most other animals: Due to a human's ability to figure out what to use and construct whatever is necessary to survive, the ability to change an environment to make living easier, and the unique accumulation of knowledge and instructions between individuals and across generations, humans have been able to live in a greater variety of environments and subdue a greater number of other animal species than almost anything else on Earth, and anything with even more cosmopolitan distribution achieved it through human actions.
