** [[AnimalWrongsGroup Team Plasma]] tried their hand at creating the strongest Pokémon of all with [[BigCreepyCrawlies Genesect]]; a Pokémon from the Paleozoic period [[TheDreaded already feared as the ultimate hunter in said days]], now sporting an array of cybernetic enhancements such as [[ExtraOreDinary steel armor]] and a large BackpackCannon. In-game, it's a fast MagicKnight with the highest stats of any Bug-type Pokémon (discounting Arceus), matched only by a few [[SuperMode Mega Evolutions]]. However, Team Plasma never actually used Genesect as N had the project cancelled, [[ScienceIsBad believing that science had ruined the Pokémon's natural beauty]].

* In the ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'', Celestia's [[FallenAngel Fallen Alicorn]] brother [[{{Satan}} Morning Star]] viewed himself as this, somewhat justifiably due to him being made to be the AnthropomorphicPersonification of Perfection and Beauty. However, this led to him viewing himself as better than even [[TopGod the Elders]] and trying to overthrow them, which led to his being [[SealedEvilInACan sealed]].

* Azathoth in Creator/HPLovecraft's CthulhuMythos is quite possibly this. It is an extra-dimensional that simply exists, mindlessly, dreaming realities in and out of existence randomly. It exists almost like some kind of vast, incomprehensible amoeba which, when you think about it, means it started as an amoeba that could do nothing and now exists as an amoeba that can do anything. If things like Azathoth even evolved of course, they are {{Eldritch Abomination}}s after all.

* From ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureBattleTendency'', [[BigBad Kars]] achieves this form through the [[AmplifierArtifact 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 [[PlayingWithFire Esidisi]] and [[BlowYouAway Wammu]], and [[ThePowerOfTheSun Hamon]] as powerful as ''the surface of the sun.'' He becomes so strong that he cannot die [[FromASingleCell unless all of his cells are destroyed]], and the only reason he is defeated at all is [[spoiler:due to a stroke of luck banishing the undying Kars into space, where his powers are unable to allow him to return to Earth. He eventually stops thinking.]]

* The Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Mewtwo was created to have the ultimate battle capabilities among Pokémon. Apparently created by genetically tampering with the embryo of a Mew (a Pokémon that has [[MasterOfAll 100 base stats in everything]], making it a borderline example), it escaped its creators and hid out in Cerulean Cave, waiting to challenge other strong Pokémon.
** You could arguably say that Deoxys is this, as it has the ability to adapt to any situation, not because it is necessary for survival or because it was created to do so, ''but simply [[SuperpowerLottery because it can]].''
** [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Generation VII]] brings us another artificial Pokémon named Type: Null. According to [[http://www.pokemon-sunmoon.com/en-gb/pokemon/type-null/ its description]], it was created to adapt to any situation by combining the strengths of several Pokémon. Similar to Mewtwo, it was created to be incredibly powerful, albeit in this case for a "certain mission."

to:

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'':
** Every single Pokémon has a set of Individual Values, or [=IVs=], so no two Pokémon encountered in the wild have precisely the same stats.
The Franchise/{{Pokemon}} [=IVs=] determine how high the Pokémon's stats are versus the rest of its species, with each IV ranging from 0 to 31[[note]]0 to 15 in the Generation I and II games, as well as ''Pokémon GO''[[/note]]; a higher IV makes the Pokémon stronger in the stat that IV applies to. For instance, a Pokémon with an IV of 31 in Attack means that its physical attacks will naturally hit harder than most other Pokémon of the same species at the same level. A Pokémon with all its [=IVs=] maximised thus has the highest stats of its species before taking natures into account, befitting this trope.

Its mega evolutions also have the highest base Attack and Special Attack stat among all known Pokémon.
** You could arguably say that Deoxys is this, as it has four Formes, with its Normal and Attack Formes having very high Attack, Special Attack and Speed, its Defense Forme having very high Defense and Special Defense, and its Speed Forme having the ability to adapt to any situation, not because it is necessary for survival or because it was created to do so, ''but simply [[SuperpowerLottery because it can]].''
** [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon
highest base Speed stat of all Pokémon. From Generation VII]] brings us another IV onwards, its Forme can be changed at will, enabling it to be used in virtually any scenario.
** Upon discovering the existence of Ultra Beasts, the Aether Foundation created three
artificial Pokémon to deal with the potential threat these Ultra Beasts presented to the Pokémon world. Said Pokémon were named Type: Null. According to [[http://www.pokemon-sunmoon.com/en-gb/pokemon/type-null/ its description]], it was Full and created from the cells of all 18 Pokémon types so that they can use a type-changing ability to adapt switch between all types, allowing them to counter any situation by combining type of Pokémon they go up against. While the strengths of several Pokémon. Similar to Mewtwo, it project was created considered a failure due to the prototypes needing a restraining helmet to suppress their ability and keep them under control, the failed prototypes, known as Type: Null, still exist, and their original, full potential can be incredibly powerful, albeit in this case for a "certain mission."unlocked by ThePowerOfFriendship.



* Tardigrades, also known as "[[BearsAreBadNews Water Bears]]", are notorious for being able to survive extreme conditions. To elaborate, they can withstand low temperatures close to absolute zero, high temperatures at 151 degrees celsius, and radiation (even more so than cockroaches), and can even survive for up to ten days in the vacuum of space. Even though every currently existing species has adapted the ability to survive in its surroundings, tardigrades survive in these conditions that go well beyond them (Although most in part thanks to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryptobiosis cryptobiosis]]).

Works that attempt a more realistic approach may substitute individual ultimate powers for a more "ultimate species" approach; hive aliens are often given this treatment, or have attaining this state through successive evolution as a goal. Creatures of this type will tend less towards beautiful and graceful and more towards quickly reproducing, hard to eradicate, and dangerous to encounter.
