* In the ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankToolsOfDestruction'', the player starts by fighting the villain's simple mercenary armies. However, in the second half of the game the mercenaries are replaced by monstrous EliteMooks from the villain's own race who can phase in and out of matter.

* Likewise, in BusouRenkin, the original monsters were human-eating monstrous homunculi. Eventually it got to the point where our heroes could beat a whole horde of them and still have enough energy to face the BigBad and hold their own. It was at that point that no new homunculi characters were introduced, and the villains became [[spoiler: humans with Busou Renkin themselves, and way more fighting experience.]]
* The MagicalGirl type [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters of the Week]] in ''LyricalNanoha'' were quickly regulated to easily-dealt-with distraction status by the half-way point of [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha the first season]] as the series moved to battles against other mages and knights, armies of AntiMagic-protected MechaMooks, and different kinds of {{Super Soldier}}s. When one such monster showed up in the first ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' [[AudioAdaptation Sound Stage]], it was treated as something for the rookies to practice what they learned in training on.

* Franchise/{{Superman}}, as well as most other superheroes created during TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks, started off their careers fighting ordinary human criminals, Nazi soldiers or even just factory owners who didn't treat their employees right. Having a superhero fight an equally powerful supervillain was originally a rare, though very exciting, event. It wasn't until the Silver Age that superhero/supervillain conflicts became the staple of superhero comics.

* Some of the [[TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] villains that Comicbook/{{Daredevil}} fought have been forgotten or turned into a HarmlessVillain when Daredevil became DarkerAndEdgier in the 80s, especially when Bullseye and Kingpin became Daredevil's ArchNemesis. Some villains like Mr. Fear and Purple Man have been updated to fit this new [[TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks Dark Age]], but others, especially Stilt-Man, have been left behind.
