* Ordinary ghouls from ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' are dangerous enough that only the most badass humans wielding the bleeding edge technology weapons are able to stand against them. However, would one start to [[CannibalismSuperpower eat other ghouls bodies]], they'd develop [[OneWingedAngel kakuja]], an ability to form armor and enhance their already-existing biological weapons. It also makes them [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity unable to control themselves]] until they'll eat enough ghoul meat to stabilize kakuja. Needless to say, besides one particular organization there are not that much people who like them among both humans and ghouls.

* Largely averted in the WheelOfTime series. Occasionally the Dark One will come up with something new, but Faile notes that the Borderlands have a saying that everything except evil changes and grows--evil just stays as it is, evil. Rand says in his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech that the Dark One will never learn anything meaningful from his defeats.

* As a meta-example, many villains evolve throughout the decades to better reflect their adversaries and the time. ComicBook/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.

* some time after ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman it's revealed that Doomsday, the monster from that story, has this as a superpower: he revives and evolves immune to anything that killed him before.

* Fittingly for a race inspired by the Tyranids, the Zerg in ''{{Starcraft}}'' are constantly enhancing their abilities and expanding their ranks via the DNA of other races.

* Frieza from ''Franchise/DragonBall'' 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.]]

**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.

* 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.
