* In ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'', Phoebe's DLC Story Operation reveals this to be the apparent case for the Tempestian Grayhorns of which the Thralls are derived from. Apparently the Thralls are [[spoiler: actually the [[{{Precursors}} ancient Aztanti]] at least on a genetic level. Based on some findings by Beatrix and the others over the course of the operation, it's uncovered that the once great Aztanti purposely de-evolved themselves into feral beasts. In the ancient past, the Aztanti were able to open a portal connecting to the Varelsi's universe. Although they were able to shut close the portal before the cosmic horrors could invade, they decided on a drastic course of action in hopes of preventing another open portal to the Void. They figured that even if they erased all records of how they opened a portal to another universe, their people would still be around to accidentally make the same mistake again in the future. So using a bespoke retrovirus tailored to rewrite segments of their genetic code, the Aztanti de-evolved themselves into feral beasts no different than mere animals. These beasts however retained dormant Aztanti traits that had the potential for greater strength, intelligence, and lifespans. In [[UpliftedAnimal force evolving]] the Thralls into their current state, Beatrix simply reawakened these dormant traits but just enough to make them into a SlaveRace for the Jennerit.]]

* In Creator/DavidBrin's second ''{{Literature/Uplift}}'' trilogy, intelligent beings (the descendants of starfarers who are trespassing in the galactic equivalent of a 'nature reserve') are trying to revert to unintelligent ones: if the law enforcement of the Five Galaxies don't discover them until their culture has collapsed, they won't be "purged" for their ancestors' crime.

** In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E3Gridlock Gridlock]]", the Macra have "devolved" (in the Doctor's words) since their first appearance in season 4 from powerful, mind-controlling creatures to beasts who are living only to feed.

** In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS29E3Gridlock Gridlock]]", the Macra have "devolved" (in the Doctor's words) since their first appearance in season 4 from powerful, mind-controlling creatures to beasts who are living only to feed. More justified than most examples, since the second appearance is ''BILLIONS'' of years later; these creatures could have evolved from a few random cells a Macra tourist unknowingly left behind in that time.

This trope tends be expressed in a matter of degrees. Most basic is the scenario common to Post-Apocalyptic settings AfterTheEnd, where humanity (or another species) is still physiologically more or less the same, but society has collapsed and technological and cultural regression have set in. The people are living a more primitive existence than their more technologically and culturally advanced ancestors. They may even intentionally evoke a "tribal" aesthetic, and may raise a BarbarianHero or two. The scruffy survivor of a ScavengerWorld is usually not an example of this trope, but the tribe of abandoned feral children he's likely to encounter on his trek across the wastelands almost always is.

* On ''Series/{{The 100}}'', the Ark and Mount Weather have maintained much of the technology and civilization from before the nuclear apocalypse, but the Grounders have reverted back to a tribal, hunter/gatherer society.

* Tom Paris's "accelerated evolution" into a non-sapient salamander-like creature in that one [[CanonDiscontinuity infamous]] "[[Recap/StarTrekVoyagerS2E15Threshold Threshold]]" episode of ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' where they built a working Transwarp Drive on a shuttlecraft. The writer of this episode has stated that his idea was that in the distant future, humanity would evolve beyond the need for sapience due to technology providing for all our material needs.
