* Starfish can regrow limbs or even form new starfish out of the old limbs f the severed appendage contains enough of the central disk. Oyster farmers unaware of this ability would often pull starfish from the reefs and cut them to pieces, unaware that they were creating more oyster eating starfish. (See also AsteroidMonster).

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'': The heroes solved the problem of an actual hydra by repeatedly decapitating it until it fainted -- its heart couldn't maintain the proper blood pressure in all the extra necks. Then an enterprising goblin starts using it [[RuleOfFunny as an infinite supply of meat for a barbecue restaurant]].

* Creator/{{Nintendo}}'s attempt to ban cartridge dumpers and copiers in the 90s: They started by targeting the most prolific manufacturer of cartridge copiers, Bung Enterprises. They went as far as to get an injunction on Bung Enterprises merchandises in the US. They managed to kill Bung Enterprises shortly after, but then numerous manufacturers sprung up in Bung's place. Additionally, the amount of publicity generated resulted in the StreisandEffect (the US Customs also received a number of eggs on their face after they confiscated a package from Bung Enterprises meant for a US customer, and it turned out that the package only contained a GameBoyAdvance link cable). They later did the same things with flashcarts, and then tried it with Website/YouTube videos containing their characters.

* The show ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' shares a continuity with the ''Captain America'' film examples above. Coulson [[spoiler:takes down HYDRA by basically cutting off as many heads as possible and, when he gathers enough intel, he calls in the Avengers to deal the final blow. Hydra is now scattered and Kelbo says that "heads ain't growin' back". Then Ward decides to revive HYDRA in his own image and recruits Baron Von Strucker's son as his apprentice; two more heads have grown. All known heads are again cut by the end of the third season, including Hive, the original head. Of course, it's still possible that more will turn up in season four...]]

Of course, it's still possible In Season 4, HYDRA does not appear ''at all'' (in the real world anyway) and might be gone for good. It's also revealed that more will turn up in season four...S.H.I.E.L.D. has a division devoted to crushing any sign of HYDRA, effectively cutting off any head the moment one appears.]]

* In Sorcerer's Apprentice segment from ''{{Disney/Fantasia}}'', Mickey enchants a broom to do his chores for him. When it begins to flood the castle, he tries chopping the broom into pieces. This backfires horribly, as each splinter becomes a new broom. Only the Wizard's magic can undo all the flooding.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'': The Alpha Legion's motif is the hydra, for good reason. They have a decentralised command structure and encourage squads and legionnaires to take the initiative while keeping the overall strategy in mind. This leads to enemies launching assassination attempts on what they ''think'' is the legion's commander, only for ''three more'' identical guys to jump up crying [[IAmSpartacus "I am Alpharius!"]] This is only one of the ''many'' ways the Alpha Legion like fucking with their opponents' minds.

** Also the series states the Hydra's life force is connected to a chain of donut shops called Monster Donuts that spawns a new location for every Hydra head.
