** When the X-Men first met Cassandra Nova, Beast speculated she was this, being to Mutants what they were to humans. [[Spoiler:This turned out to be a RedHerring, and what she actually was ended up being was a lot more of a MindScrew.]]

* The ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' villains Vargas and ComicBook/{{Apocalypse}} both make claims to be this. Decades earlier, Magneto genetically engineered a being called Alpha the Ultimate Mutant who had a pretty strong claim as well (he turned against Magneto, transforming him into a child so he could have a second chance at life.)

* CaptainAmerica is considered to technically not have any superpowers, but instead operates at humanity's maximum physical potential. He's as strong, enduring, and dextrous as any human can possibly be; back it up with decades of military experience and he's more than a match for any actual superhuman.

** While most prominent in sea life for the above reasons, it is not restricted to them. The concept of an 'Evolutionary Landscape' exists, with the idea that hills on this landscape represent a particular niche for a species to occupy, and that the peaks of these hills are a theoretical ideal form for that niche that a species may eventually evolve into, and from which they are likely to never evolve away from provided the environment doesn't change. However, as the evolution of other species is part of what effects the environment, it would take a great deal of time for land creatures to reach a state of equilibrium, even if the environment wasn't also subject to geographical changes that have nothing to do with biology, such as floods. This propensity for significant rapid change in environment on the land means that even if an animal does reach an evolutionary peak, they'll likely find it 'moved' somewhere else in a relatively short period of time.

* From Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Part 2: Battle Tendency [[spoiler: Kars achieves this form through the Red Stone of Aja being inserted into a stone mask. This grants him the ability to transform himself on a cellular level, giving him a HealingFactor way above that of Vampires or Pillar Men, as well as the ability to transform parts of his body into parts of various animals. He has all the abilities of any creature that has existed, or will ever exist. This includes the abilities of Wammu and Essidisi, and Hamon as powerful as *the surface of the sun.* He becomes so strong that he cannot die unless all of his cells are destroyed, and the only reason he is defeated at all is due to Joseph [[AndIMustScream using Kars's immortality]] [[AFateWorseThanDeath against him]]]]..]]

** Aaroniero Arruruerie boasted that since he gains the powers and memories of any creature he eats, as well as the powers and memories of anything ''they'' ate, he has the potential for endless evolution. He's proven wrong with fatal results when Rukia stabs him through the head. "Potential", after all, only helps if you live long enough to achieve it and Aaroniero demonstrates that you're a lot less likely to do that [[TooDumbToLive if you're a moron]].

* In ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'', Fraulein Kreutune has an AdaptiveAbility and CannibalismSuperpower. Creator/AleisterCrowley notes that she has the potential to become the ultimate lifeform, but at her current rate of development, it would take about 2300 years, though she would achieve it nearly instantly if she were to eat Last Order and gain her powers. One has to wonder what Crowley's criteria for ultimate life form are, as Fraulein already has CompleteImmortality.
** Though, honestly, in a series with [[PhysicalGod Magic Gods]] so powerful that they can literally rewrite the universe on a whim, immortality isn't saying much.

* In ''Film/JurassicWorld'', the Indominus rex is essentially created to be the ultimate Dinosaur. (or at least the ultimate theropod) Much like Mewtwo ,[[GoneHorriblyRight that didn't turn out well.]]

In addition to their high stats, as long as the player has enough cards to discard, they can negate pretty much anything the opponent tries to play, making defeating them nigh impossible.

* Matrioshka brains: these are hypothetical structures that combine the idea with a DysonSphere with computronium (the theoretical configuration of matter offering the most bang-for-bucks computing wise) Matrioshka brains would consequently be the most powerful computer technically possible - and as a result it has been suggested that they might be the dominant lifeform in the universe.

* The Pillar Men from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' are referred to as the ultimate life forms. One of them, Kars, becomes the real ultimate life form when the Red Stone of Aja removes his vulnerability to sunlight and allows him to replicate the abilities of all other life forms. In this case, Kars was truly invincible. The only reason Joseph won is because [[spoiler: [[AndIMustScream he used Kars's immortality]] [[AFateWorseThanDeath against him]]]].
