** The entire point in that sequel to Cooler's Revenge ''Anime/DragonBallZTheReturnOfCooler'' is that just as Cooler's body was being destroyed, his mind merged with a sentient super-computer/space-ship. The ship rebuilds him as a mechanical lifeform, and now, thanks to the ship's enormous resources, whenever Cooler's body is damaged, the ship simply repairs his body or fabricates a new one with whatever vulnerabilities it learned about removed. This comes to a head when the computer decides Cooler's main flaw is that there's only one of him. Cue enormous army of Meta Coolers.

* ''Literature/ReleaseThatWitch'': The more witches use their magic, the more magical energy they can store within their bodies, and the more they comprehend the world around them and how their magic feeds into it, the more powerful their abilities become. For instance, after Anna understands how heat works at an atomic level, she gains the ability to form her "flames" into any shape she wants, including planes, lines and other geometric shapes.

*** In the manga version of ''Super'', Future Trunks theorizes that this Saiyan ability yields diminishing returns over time, as in the manga version of his arc, he, Goku, and Vegeta get injured and healed several times and the strength increase is negligible.

* 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.
