Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/NocturneRebirth'' gives the FinalBoss, [[spoiler:Khaos]], who has the skill Element Raid. The game lacks an EnemyScan feature, making this skill quite annoying, though the upside is that it changes his weakness and resistance in a cycle and it doesn't protect him from pure physical damage.

* Every boss in the ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'' [[VideoGame game]] has layers of force fields, each one that can only be destroyed by a specific weapon. (For instance, a [[color:blue:blue]] shield will only be vulnerable to the Arc Laser.)

** The TropeNamer is the move Barrier Change used by Magus. This fight is the most famous example of this trope. Magus was in fact ''healed'' by ElementalPowers which did not match the element of his barrier, and changing his barrier also inflicted high elemental damage to your entire party. Fortunately, if you didn't have magic that matched his barrier, you could force him to change it (at the cost of getting hit by the aforementioned damage) with physical attacks. The hard part of the fight actually came ''after'' he dropped his barriers entirely, because that was when he broke out Dark Matter.

He also had four barriers he could apply, and the most you can possibly counter are three with any given party; only ''two'' if you picked Marle as your optional teammate. The hard part of the fight actually came ''after'' he dropped his barriers entirely, because that was when he broke out his most devastating spell, Dark Matter.

* The ''VideoGame/StarTrekEliteForce'' game introduces a weapon that gets around this with the Borg: the Infinity Modulator, which [[spoiler: can randomly switch to an infinite number of frequencies and infinite number of times.]] It's the only weapon that consistently works against the Borg; they adapt to all others with enough shots.

* The FinalBoss of ''EpicBattleFantasy 3'' does this. It takes him a ''long'' time to change, though, and once he's been scanned once, you don't need to scan him again.
** ''EpicBattleFantasy 4'' does this with the Crystal Golem, the ''second'' boss of the game, who changes between FireIceLightning ''as soon as it takes a single hit'' (that includes individual hits from multi-hit attacks). Like the above, once it's scanned you don't have to do it again.

* ''PhantasyStarUniverse'' has the Kagajibari. Boss of the mission [[MeaningfulName "Rainbow Beast"]], he switches element to whatever element just hit him. He casts spells accordingly. His default type is [[LightIsNotGood Light]], so one would cast dark spells at him... [[ShmuckBait right?]] If you cast dark spells at him, he casts [[OneHitKill Megid]] at you.

* While Arceus always had the ability to change its types and by extension its resistances and weaknesses in the Pokémon franchise, it was never able to do this while battling. In the movie Anime/PokemonArceusAndTheJewelOfLife however, this trope is played straight. Arceus can change its plates to archieve immunity or at least heavy resistance to almost all attacks.
