* The monsters of ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' have these as a major part of the gameplay. They have three levels, with Stage 1 being weaker than the quartet of hunters, Stage 2 roughly equal, and Stage 3 much stronger. Besides the health bonus and extra abilities that come with evolution, the monsters grow larger and develop [[SpikesOfVillainy dorsal projections]] to show off their increased power.

** ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' All mutants comics dub mutants "homo superior", the "next step" in human evolution. A long-established but seldom-mentioned trait of Marvel's mutants is that they're a little tougher than a normal human of the same frame. E.g., In her solo comic, Dazzler mentions that one of the advantages of being a mutant is that she doesn't get tired as quickly as normal people, and the old Marvel-based RolePlayingGame gave all mutants + 1 level in the Endurance stat.

* ''Film/{{X-Men}}'': In the movies, despite insistence from Magneto that they are "homo superior," it's established that mutant powers are actually the result of a simple genetic carrier, "the mutant gene".

* ''Anime/Bleach'' has those pesky Hollows that evolve as they get stronger by eating other spirits. First, you have a regular cannibal ghost. Then, that Hollow gets strong enough (usually by eating and/or merging with other Hollows) to become a Gillian, the first level in what's called the "Menos Grande" class. If that Gillian keeps a mind intact, it can keep eating to become a smaller but stronger Adjuchas. In extremely rare cases, this development can continue and result in the human-sized, insanely-powerful Vasto Lorde.

* One of the ideas in ''Stardust Memories'' is that evolutionary levels are contagious on a mass scale--if a world has primitive life, and it's visited by humans, that primitive life will rapidly evolve to fill all evolutionary niches required in order to produce human-like creatures. Unfortunately, [[BodyHorror it may hit an evolutionary dead end during the attempt]] . . .

Added DiffLines:

* The [[{{Precursors}} Forerunners]] of ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'' built their society around a pseudo-religious philosophy in which their species must uphold the "Mantle of Responsibility", a position of galactic guardianship which belongs to "those whose evolution is most complete". Whether this is an actual tenet of the title as specified by the [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens Precursors]] or a means for the Forerunners to impose their will over [[FantasticRacism "lesser" races]] [[KnightTemplar while still claiming moral superiority]] is unknown.

* [[Franchise/TheDCU DCComics']] Captain Comet is supposed to be the next stage of human evolution ("born [[SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale a hundred thousand years]] before his time!") In the {{New 52}}, his "species" is called Neo Sapiens.

** Sometimes, {{Galactus}} is said to target worlds at the "apex of their evolution" to devour. For evolution to have an "apex", it has to be a finite process with multiple levels, and a highest, "best" level.
