* In ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'' the Gene Tailoring tech allows you to modify the traits of species in your empire, including changing their environmental preferences on certain planets. Though it may sometimes be easier to uplift species that evolved on planets with that environment.

** After an empire has researched Gene Tailoring there's a chance of populations on undesirable planets attempting to modify themselves without waiting for the perfected tech, with random results on their traits and a significant chance of leading to racial tensions between them and the unmodified population.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/MarvelComics: The Atlanteans are a magic-based version of this. They are descended from worshipers of Neptune, who transformed them into water-breathers to save them from the fall of Atlantis. Their Pacific Ocean cousins, the green, scaly Lemurians, were further transformed by their rulers' use of a cursed artifact, The Serpent Crown.
* Creator/DCComics: The Atlanteans are descended from survivors of the domed city of Poseidonis on the continent of Atlantis. Their defensive dome (originally intended to repel invaders) kept the water at bay after Atlantis sank long enough for their scientists to alter their genome to make them amphibious (though heavily water-dependent) humanoids. An offshoot that had used magical means to reclaim the neighboring city of Tritonis after a science/magic cultural schism became fully aquatic merpeople, due to their leader cursing them for accepting help from scientists.

* In one SergeyLukyanenko short story the protagonist, who possesses the ability to automatically adapt to anything pefrectly, is hired to deal with a dangerous predator on a distant planet. Gradually adapting to the DeathWorld in question he understands that the dangerous predator in question could not possibly hunt humans for fun as described, as he actually became exactly like him, physically and mentally. When the two finally meet, they start playing as cats do... which gives the colonists a perfect opportunity to kill both with a single rocket, since both aren't technically human and they don't have to pay him this way. [[spoiler:He survives, and briefly mentions before leaving that ''they'' are the ones who are not human.]]

Half the "evolution missions" in ''VideoGame/StarcraftIIHeartOfTheSwarm'' involve strains that evolved from exposure to hostile environments (up to and including [[NuclearNasty nuclear missiles]]) and the other half involve killing and consuming creatures with useful genes.
