** Ditto for their cousins the Asurans in ''Series/StargateAtlantis'', although they are already in humanoid form when they encounter the Atlantis team.

** Ditto for their cousins the Asurans in ''Series/StargateAtlantis'', although they are already in humanoid form when they encounter the Atlantis team. In one episode, dozens of Asurans throw themselves at a shield that disintegrates them, until, finally, the rest adapt and are able to pass.

* The Cybermen of ''Series/DoctorWho'' have always had traits of TheAssimilator, but this aspect gets focused on in the incarnation introduced in "Nightmare in Silver". Sometimes you'll take a few of them down before they adapt - others, it won't cost them a single unit.

* In ''Dune'', the Bene Gesserit (and those trained in their methods like Paul Atreides) have the ability to change their internal chemistry. This makes them immune to poisoning, as they will simply change the composition of the poison to something that is not lethal.

* Titan from ''Literature/SuperPowereds''. His power responded to frustration so that not only would he become tougher if he was ever actually hurt by a physical attack, but he would also become stronger if he ever failed to overcome a physical challenge like lifting a heavy object.

* Titan from ''Literature/SuperPowereds''. His power responded to frustration so that not only would he become tougher if he was ever actually hurt by a physical attack, but he would also become stronger if he ever failed to overcome a physical challenge like lifting a heavy object. He also reveals that [[spoiler:his son Hershel inherited a different version of the same power. When kids were bullying him in school, Hershel's power manifested as his SuperpoweredAlterEgo Roy, who is stronger, more muscular, taller, and more social than Hershel. Everyone thinks that Hershel is just a shifter, until Titan reveals that Roy is a manifestation of Hershel's ideal self. This comes up, when Roy hits his physical limit, unable to lift 800 lb weights no matter how many times he's able to lift 750 lb weights. Titan explains that Hershel needs to start pushing himself in training as well, allowing his adaptive ability to raise Roy's {{Cap}}]].

** ''Anime/TheReturnOfCooler'', anyone? The entire point in that sequel to Cooler's Revenge 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 Cooler robo-clones.

* In ''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.

* In ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', the Big Bad from Part 2, Cars, uses the Red Jewel of Asia to instantly become the ultimate creature, with all of earth's evolution in hand and the ability to adapt to any attack. He was effectively immune to every possible attack because he could simply change into a form that resisted it before it even hit him. Even when thrown into a volcano he surrounded his body with bags of air to insulate him from the immense heat. He was defeated by being shot into space by the volcano to float around forever until he eventually ceased thinking, effectively making him dead.
