* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', all of the Dragon Slayers can eat their element (so long as they didn't directly make it [[spoiler:and it wasn't created by Godslayer magic]]) to heal themselves and boost their attacking power. This results in a literal example of this trope's name: the main male lead, as a Fire Dragon Slayer, ''eats fire''. He can eat other types of magic too, but it [[HeroicRROD gives him indigestion.]]

His slaying magic has no specific attribute -- [[spoiler:rather, it's ''magic'' itself that he feeds off of. That's why he's so powerful in the present day, and why literally nothing the protagonists throw at him can affect him in any way]].

** In ''Anime/DragonballSuper'', Goku Black seems to have an upgraded form of the Saiyans' ability to become stronger after near-death, in that ''any damage he sustains at all'' makes him stronger. This leads him to occasionally make comments that make him sound like a masochist; he revels in the sensation of pain whenever he feels it, since he knows it will only make him stronger.

* Some ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' cards get more powerful in this manner, such as the old Fungusaur, which got permanently slightly bigger every time it survived damage and the Phytohydra from Ravnica which transforms damage directly power.

* In ''VideoGame/GodzillaSaveTheEarth'', Megalon would be healed if he was struck by electric attacks, rendering King Ghidorah, Mecha-King Ghidorah, and opponent Megalons' ranged weapons useless. Mecha-King Ghidorah was weak to all ranged weapons, but if he has his energy shield up when the beam first strikes he restores some health instead and the rest of the beam is rendered completely ineffective.

* In ''Anime/KillLaKill'', Gamagoori's Shackle Regalia uniform allows him to [[CombatSadomasochist get stronger when struck]]. If his opponent decides not to attack, he'll simply whip himself to get the strength he needs.
* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', Gerard Valkyrie's special ability, The Miracle, is that he gets bigger and stronger the more damage he takes. An attempted NoHoldsBarredBeatdown made him the size of a skyscraper. While he can feel pain and take injuries, he also has a HealingFactor.

* According to [[AllThereInTheManual the novelization and other sources]] for the ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'' franchise, not only are Terminators fireproof and heat-resistant, but they can actually ''use'' fire and other energy sources to boost their power. Terminators actually conserve energy most of the time by keeping the majority of their internal systems dormant until they become mission-critical. For example, their strength, processing power, and tracking programs are only operating at low levels. In the first film, the Terminator used the fire that burned away its flesh to push all of its systems to maximum, and in the second film, the ambient heat of the steel mill brought the heroic Terminator back to life to finish its mission.

* ''Series/{{Supergirl 2015}}'': In "World's Finest", a crossover with ''Series/TheFlash2014'', when Flash blasts Livewire with lightning, it only powers her up. In his defense, when he tried it on the electric-wielding villain Blackout on his own show, it overloaded and defeated him.
