**Sosuke Aizen tried to weaponize this by fusing the Hogyoku to his chest and wishing it to evolve him into, as he put it, a "being that transcends Shinigami and Hollow". Fortunately, the Hogyoku didn't do what he thought it would.

* While the Kyuubi isn't getting stronger, the seal holding him inside {{Naruto}} was getting weaker, and more and more tails popped out everytime his power was used.
* Frieza from ''{{Dragonball}} Z'' goes through three transformation sequences before reaching his ultimate form. Even then, he gets a power upgrade later on by becoming a cyborg, though this does surprisingly little good as he gets prompty curb stomped almost immediately afterward. On the absorption side of things, Cell and Buu (especially Buu) also qualify as this trope. Note that Buu [[spoiler: had to technically DE-evolve to reach his 'ultimate' form.]]

* The Replicators of ''Series/StargateSG1'' do this several times through the series. When first encountered, they're just a HiveMind of robotic bugs seeking out technology- dangerous, but not particularly ambitious. Later, they construct several human-form Replicators, which are made of [[GreyGoo nanites]], capable of [[MindRape interfacing with human minds]], much tougher to destroy, and much more forward-thinking. One of the human-forms, Fifth, begins developing human emotions as well, and develops a grudge against Carter and Earth and a desire to conquer the Milky Way. When the good guys attempt to evolve in turn- by developing a WaveMotionGun that destroys Replicators and leaves everything else intact- the Replicators reprogram themselves with an immunity.

* This trope is central to the mythology of the ''VideoGame/{{Overlord}}'' series. As Gnarl tends to point out, "Evil always finds a way."

* In general, all law enforcement today. Internet and technology march so fast ahead that legislation has hard time keeping up, therefore applying old, outdated laws.

* ''WesternAnimation/WolverineAndTheXMen:'' The Sentinels in the BadFuture have apparently come down with a case of jealousy toward their Mutant enemies, and have begun trying to copy their powers. The only examples seen are one Sentinel using telekinesis, and a whole line of Sentinels based on Wolverine, healing factor included.

* Discussed in ''Film/BatmanBegins'', where Jim Gordon mentions some of the advances Gotham's criminals have made to keep ahead of the police... and wonders what they'll become to counter Batman. [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker He gets his answer]] [[Film/TheDarkKnight one movie later.]]

* This happens in ''Film/PacificRim'', where Kaijus become bigger, more intelligent and more dangerous to counteract the [[HumongousMecha Jaegers]] killing them.



** Harry kills [[spoiler: Duchess Arianna]] this way, as she couldn't adapt to the terms of the duel that limited her (otherwise very effective) tactics.

* As a meta-example, many villains evolve throughout the decades to better reflect their adversaries and the time. LexLuthor has gone from insane scientist to politician to business man to reflect the changing views of society and many of Batman's villains have ceased to be gimmicky tricksters and evolved into dark and insane psychopaths. In the Dark Knight TheJoker himself is described as a terrorist, playing on the recent fear of terrorism striking the west over the the last decade.
