* In ''VideoGame/{{Hearthstone}}'', Shamans get the ''Devolve'' card from ''Mean Streets of Gadgetzan''. Funnily enough, the artwork displays the BigBadEnsemble from the expansion pack, devolved into Murlocs.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/WarForThePlanetOfTheApes'', the virus that wiped out humanity in ''Film/DawnOfThePlanetOfTheApes'' has mutated to (possibly) having devolutionary effect on the survivors. The mutated virus definitely causes humans to become mutes, but otherwise it’s not clear whether it has true devolutionary effects.

* Many superhero RolePlayingGames — like ''MutantsAndMasterminds'' and the original ''[[MarvelUniverse Marvel Superheroes Role-Playing Game]]'' — include, among the list of powers available to players, some sort of "Hyper-Evolution" power that lets a hero shift up and down along their "evolutionary path," generally affording them the ability to "devolve" into cave-man form (temporarily lower their intelligence to raise their strength). In Mayfair Games' ''TabletopGame/DCHeroes'' RPG this was covered by the Mutation power.

** One episode of ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' had Gorilla Grodd construct a "devolution" ray (his own words) that turned humans into humanoid gorillas... including Comicbook/{{Superman}}, who is not human at all. After his plan failed even Lex Luthor [[WhoWritesThisCrap complained how stupid the whole thing sounded]] and [[KlingonPromotion used it as the pretext to take over the Legion sooner than he planned.]]

* An edition of "Justice League of America" featured an "villain" called Anachronus, who bragged to Snapper Carr (the JLA's Rick Jones expy) that he had just used his De-Evolution ray gun to de-evolve the entire JLA into amoebas; however, the arrival of the JLA exposed the villain as a compulsive fantasist, recently escaped from a State mental hospital.
