* ''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.

** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}
*** [[spoiler:Namatame]]'s shadow does this. He is highly resistant (to the point of single digit damage) to all but one element, which he takes high damage from. [[spoiler:The trick is that he is weak to the element he uses to attack]]).
** This is also used for [[spoiler:Nyx Avatar]], the final boss and the Emperor/Empress DualBoss ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}''
*** Also used by the BonusBoss, [[spoiler:Elizabeth]]. She changes her persona every turn, which also changes the type of attacks that she nulls.

** In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'', Seraph, one of the bosses in [[spoiler:Purgatorium]], puts up a colored wall that corresponds to a certain element. Using that element will break the wall and allow Seraph to be damaged.
** ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'' has three of these. The first is [[spoiler:Inanna]], the fifth boss of [[spoiler:the Cosmic Egg]], who uses moves that makes her weak to the opposite element. The second is the same dungeon's final boss, [[spoiler:Vishnu-Flynn]], who, in his second form, switches between being weak to Light and Dark. DLC provides the third example in Cleopatra, who starts with a weakness to Dark while occasionally using a move that will switch her weakness when it is exploited.

* Every boss in the ''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.)

* ''VideoGame/BatenKaitos''' final boss followed this trope. Though, it showed you what element he was changing into with Seal of Entropy, and by displaying the game's icon for the element slide over his limbs, into his chest, you only have a "deck" of cards that explain your weapon usage. So you can't really specialize in all elements, or choose any particular attack that would defeat his element quickly, but instead have each of your team special in three or four elements (Chrono or Wind, Fire or Water, Light or Dark) or pack yourself full of non-element based cards and drag the fight out for a good hour or so.

Fortunately, three specific characters actually specialize in those very combinations [[spoiler:(Kalas has Chrono/Wind, Sayna has Fire/Water, and Lyude has Light/Dark)]].

** Another Pokémon does this as well -- the Porygon family's Conversion (changes type to that of one of its own attacks) and Conversion2 (changes type to what resists the last attack that hit) attacks. The latter is a bit more useful in Double Battles ([=Porygon2=] are sturdy enough that it can Recover the damage dealt by its partner. [=PorygonZ=], not so much.), though it's still not recommended.
