* In {{Starcraft}}: Brood War, the ursadon was a [[http://starcraft.wikia.com/wiki/File:Ursadon.jpg dopey-looking critter]] that couldn't fight back and exploded in a cloud of shame if clicked on enough. In HeartOfTheSwarm? [[http://starcraft.wikia.com/wiki/File:Ursadon_SC2-HoTS_Head1.jpg They're huge armored slaughterbears with six-inch tusks]] that can jump cliffs, body slam enemies and are immune to cold.

*** Mario as well, who along with Luigi can now beat up a [[spoiler:super powered Bowser with Dream Stone reality warper abilities]] without any kind of help or magic items. So in other words, they take on Bowser when he's got the equivalent of the [[PaperMario Star Rod]] with no help and WIN!

** Tails gains a bit of character development in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' where, with Eggman launching a back-up plan to destroy Station Square after Sonic beats Chaos, and Sonic nowhere to be found, Tails musters the courage to step out of Sonic's shadow and take on Eggman by himself. This continues in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'' where Tails gets ''pissed'' and straight-up challenges Eggman [[spoiler:after watching him seemingly kill Sonic]].

* The entire race of the [[LizardFolk Argonians]] from ''VideoGame/TheElderScrolls'' franchise gradually took levels as the future went further and further. They used to be something of disrespected victims of FantasticRacism and were frequently enslaved from their homeland by the Dark Elves of the neighboring Morrowind. Then the sentient trees they worship known as the Hist sensed the Oblivion crisis and changed the sap to make the Argonians more powerful and much more aggressive, to the point that not only did they drive back the invasions in the Black Marsh, they ''forced the Dremora to close their own portals because they were launching counter-invasions''. As of the time period of ''Skyrim'', the Argonians have taken the southern half of Morrowind in payback for the centuries of slave ownership, and it's mentioned that their current empire is one of two (the other being Hammerfell) that could realistically drive off the Aldmeri Dominion, who have otherwise conquered Tamriel.

** From the {{Backstory}}, most prominently seen in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', is the [[FounderOfTheKingdom legendary ancient Chimeri/Dunmeri hero]], Lord Indoril Nerevar. While details of his early life are scant, he was a mere merchant caravan guard prior to uniting the Chimer people and forming an EnemyMine with the rival [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]] in order to drive out the invading [[HornyVikings Nords]]. His time as the leader of the Chimer (now Dunmer) is considered the most prosperous time in the race's history.

** Ragna takes one every game. In the first game, Ragna is a wannabe hero who throws his Azure Grimoire around and spends most of the game still getting his ass whooped, especially by Nu. By the third game, he's learned to rely on his own strength and skill without using the Grimoire, and [[spoiler:defeats Take-Mikazuchi, an EldritchAbomination which ''is the size of a satellite'', can nuke entire cities, and killed ''The Black Beast itself'' during the Dark War]], and he inflicts a CurbStompBattle on Nu this time. In the finale of the fourth and final game, Ragna effectively becomes a PhysicalGod, utterly wrecking the entire cast without effort and [[spoiler:kills Terumi for good, with a cool PreMortemOneLiner]].

** Stormwind's Prince Anduin Wrynn. When the game started, he was just a kid who was watched over by Bolvar Fordragon until his father could be found and resume the throne. Just before ''Cataclysm'', he got some character development in the Expanded Universe in which he began to find his calling as a priest, rather than a warrior like his father. In the lead-up quests to the Twilight Highlands, he's helping you investigate incidents in Stormwind, backing you up with Power Words: Shield and healing. Finally, in ''Mists of Pandaria'', shipwrecked and alone in Pandaria, rather than sit and wait for rescue, he begins hunting down information on the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, avoids rescue by Mind Controlling one of his would-be rescuers into letting him go, helps you save the Temple of the Red Crane, convinces the August Celestias to open the Vale, and it all culminates in his going toe-to-toe with no less than Garrosh Hellscream. A battle which, while he loses, does stop Garrosh's plans and shows how tough he his by surviving having just about every bone in his body broken.

Now he's the king, with divine power at his fingertips on par with the greatest priests and paladins of all time.

* Of course, one of the most well known level ups in the Final Fantasy series takes place in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2'' with Yuna. While the first game rarely gave her lines that showed that she had some guts, X-2 gave her not only a gun and some rather interesting one liners (some made no real sense, though those were by design), but also allows her to deliver what could be one of the best lines in the entire game. Near the end of the game, where [[spoiler:Nooj tells of his plans to defeat Vengagun to the three protagonists (which involves him sacrificing his life in order to stop Vengagun and the man controlling it)]], Yuna objects with, "I don't like your plan. '''It sucks!'''" The line makes everyone in that current scene suddenly whip around to her (due to her never using such harsh language prior to that point) as she then delivers a moving speech of why she highly disapproves of the proposed plan.
