** Gaia the Fierce Knight has been taking Levels ever since the game began. First there was [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Gaia_The_Fierce_Knight Gaia]], a fairly mediocre Monster from the first set, who became [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Gaia_the_Dragon_Champion respectably strong]] when fused with Curse of Dragon. As time went by, that seemed to fall out of favor... so he gritted his teeth, willed himself a pretty useful effect, and became [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Swift_Gaia_the_Fierce_Knight Swift Gaia.]] Then when that started to wear thin, he [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Gaia_Knight,_the_Force_of_Earth became a Synchro Monster]] (and was the strongest one of his level bar Goyo). Then that Synchro got a [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Gaia_Drake,_the_Universal_Force fusion.]] Then he laid in wait for a while... until the Chaos Xyz mechanic showed up and he [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Gaia_Dragon,_the_Thunder_Charger jumped on that wagon, too.]] There's probably never been a time in the game where ''some'' form of Gaia wasn't usable.

Later on, the fusion of Gaia with Curse of Dragon got retrained and is now called Gaia the Soaring Dragon Champion.

** Planeswalkers in general. Starting out as regular, everyday members of their species, then after going through a life-changing experience, becoming nigh-immortal god-like beings with the power to walk between worlds (and that being one of the more ''mundane'' powers a planeswalker possesses).

** Planeswalkers in general. Starting out as regular, everyday members of their species, then after going through a life-changing experience, becoming nigh-immortal god-like beings with the power to walk between worlds (and that being one of the more ''mundane'' powers a planeswalker possesses). Subverted after The Mending. The powers granted by the Planeswalker Spark are greatly reduced. The only new power a planeswalker gains is the ability to walk between worlds. However, the new storylines make a point of showing just how special that power really is.

Cute but weak [[http://yugiohmint.com/search/Gigobyte Gigobyte]] becomes [[http://images.yugiohmint.com/m/m0exdyf.jpg Gagagigo]], who is quite badass, but it's not enough for him with help of cybernetic he turns into much more [[http://images.yugiohmint.com/n/n0o8r8w.jpg dangerous]] [[http://images.yugiohmint.com/a/a0igwx6.jpg forms]].

* This happens to numerous characters in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering''. Crovax and Ertai each take about twenty levels in badass when they sign up with the Phyrexians. Kamahl takes a level in badass when he becomes the Fist of Krosa, and his sister takes a level in badass when she becomes Phage the Untouchable.The meta-storyline of first 10 years of Magic effectively started with one determined and slightly less then moral Thran healer taking several levels in badass to become [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Yawgmoth]] and then one determined, slightly less then moral and spiritually troubled by his brother's demise human artificer taking about equal amount of said levels to become Urza Planeswalker to combat him.

* In TailOfTheMoon, Usagi starts off the series as a bumbling ninja-in-training, unable to get her qualification. She didn't have many skills beyond medicine making. Then [[spoiler:the massacre of Iga happens...]] and she takes a HUGE level in badass.
