** Then ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda3'' cranks it UpToEleven with Kai, an absurdly powerful master of chi who completely eclipses the previous villains in scale and menace. For perspective, [[spoiler: he's the first villain to actually beat Po in a straight fight, [[CurbStompBattle and rather easily at that]]]]. Even his minions are more threatening, being EliteMooks formed from other kung fu masters.

** And once again, season five throws us a straight out aversion in Starlight Glimmer, who's the first major villain to be just another normal pony. A very skilled and smart pony, but at the time of her debut episode only influential enough to threaten one small village (which doesn't make her any less scary). [[spoiler: Played straight when she returns in the Season 5 finale. Where Starlight did quite a bit of level grinding offscreen, to the point where she has mastered ''self-levitation'' magic and is able to stand toe-to-toe with ''Princess Twilight'' one on one. It was even lampshaded by Twilight herself, who admitted she couldn't stop her with her own magic.]]

* In Literature/{{Worm}}, the villains don't strictly follow this, for example the fight with [[spoiler: Coil]] comes well after both Leviathan and the S9, but overall fights get harder, culminating with [[spoiler: Golden Morning, the fight with [[PhysicalGod Scion]].]]

* ''Fanfic/{{HERZ}}'': Played straight. The first enemies fought by HERZ were human soldiers and foot troops. Later they had to deploy several Evangelions to destroy a {{Robeast}}. Finally the main characters fought other Evangelions.

* In Film/SpiderMan, Flash Thompson is designed as the primary antagonistic character during the beginning of the film, which quickly graduates to Uncle Ben's killer for a short period and then, at long last, the Green Goblin. ** Film/TheAmazingSpiderman does more-or-less the same thing, though it replaces the Green Goblin with The Lizard.

* ''[[ShadowHearts Shadow Hearts: Covenant]]'' takes this to an extreme. Every time the heroes defeat the apparent BigBad threatening to destroy the world, a new one appears to, yes, threaten to destroy the world. Somehow it gets softer each time; starting with the threat of demonic global annihilation, and ending with the threat of having the war-torn recent history rewritten into a more peaceful one by the unusually benevolent final BigBad.

[[folder:Fan Works]] * ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'': ** Played straight. The first enemies were weaker and less mind-screwing, and one or two giant robots could take them without too much trouble. The last enemies fought by the main characters were [[Franchise/CthulhuMythos ancient eldritch horrors which could obliterate planets with a mere gesture.]] ** Gendo invoked the trope in the first chapter when the first Angel (a giant spider) came along, and he said it will likely be the weakest since it is the first one. He also said several times that their first enemies were -comparatively- weak and dumb, but their future adversaries would be more dangerous. [[/folder]]
