** In ''[[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon Pokémon Sun and Moon]]'', Hau is overall a kid who only battles for fun, and poses little to no challenge to the player character, despite being the generation's rival. However, in the AlternateUniverse of ''[[VideoGame/PokemonUltraSunAndUltraMoon Ultra Sun and Moon]]'', he has a ''massive'' CharacterDevelopment and starts stepping up his game, even [[spoiler: becoming the FinalBoss in the Pokémon League, taking Professor Kukui's place.]]

** In ''Sun & Moon'', the dragon-type totem pokémon Kommo-o was a joke. It was a few levels lower than a totem pokémon should be at this point in the game, and just prior to facing it you acquire the Fairium Z (which can turn a single Fairy-type move into a LimitBreak) and the TM for Dazzling Gleam, a powerful Fairy-type move. Utilizing both of these meant you could easily one-shot the Totem Kommo-o, whose two types, Dragon and Fighting, are both weak to Fairy-type moves. Even if you didn't, the help it summons is of a laughably low level.
*** In ''Ultra Sun/Moon'', Totem Kommo-o is much more difficult. Its level was raised, the levels of its ally pokémon were raised, you don't have the Fairium Z yet, and it now knows Poison Jab to deal with Fairy-type pokémon. Even if you get off Dazzling Gleam or some other Fairy-type move, it is now holding a Roseli berry, which halves the damage it takes from a single Fairy-type move. It still has weaknesses, sure, but its natural defenses plus the boost from the totem aura mean that most super-effective attacks are going to be doing fairly average damage. ''[[ThatOneBoss Good luck]]''.

**** In ''VideoGame/SonicForces'', [[spoiler:although he loses the fight, he actually manages too hold his own against Infinite, who had previous [[CurbStompBattle curb stomped]] Omega and Sonic with ease.]]


Added DiffLines:

*** By ''VideoGame/SonicForces'', Eggman has taken so many levels in badass it's not even funny. [[spoiler:He takes over the world, creates multiple backup generators for the Phantom Ruby, ditches Infinite when he loses too Sonic and the Avatar, and fights Sonic and co with a Death Egg Robot powered by an overclocked Phantom Ruby. The reason he lost wasn't even his fault:Infinite dropped the Phantom Ruby prototype during his fight with Silver which the Avatar used too stop Eggman's ColonyDrop using the artifical sun. If Infinite had done his job correctly, Eggman would have destroyed the Resistance.]]

** In addition, one of the main characters in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha 3'' starts out as a delivery boy with a minor Karate background. Then he trains with certain members of the Alpha Numbers--this includes, but is not limited to: cyborgs (Guy and Hiroshi/Jeeg), combat pros (the Wing boys, Banjo, Tsurugi Tetsuya...), a yokozuna, masters of various martial arts (Camille, Wufei, Yun Lee...), a dude who cleaves evil, gods, and battleships (Zengar), [[BoisterousBruiser an old dude who]] [[BadassGrandpa smacks stuff around]] [[EpicFlail in space with a ball and chain]] ([[ThemeMusicPowerUp ware koso wa~ waRE koso wa~ Baran Doban! fire!fire!fire!fire!]]), and various characters voiced by Kamiya Akira. By the end of the game, he kicked an EldritchAbomination in the ass ''straight to hell''! That's not counting the other god-like beings he might have to beat up beforehand.

*** In the Rainbow Rocket storyline of Ultra Sun/Moon, you fight through [[VillainTeamUp the villains from the previous games]]. Or more specifically, [[spoiler:Alternate Universe versions of them that succeeded in their plans, meaning that they now have their respective game's [[OlympusMons legendaries]]]]. This means that [[spoiler:both [[Videogame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Archie and Maxie]] have Kyogre and Groudon respectively as well as Giovanni now having a Mewtwo that he can mega-evolve]].

** In ''Sun & Moon'', a ''move'' gets this treatment. Leech Life, a move with terrible Base Power which is only ever used by early-game wild Zubats because even the AI Trainers aren't that dumb, now has a Power of ''80'' while retaining its LifeDrain effect. Don't worry, those early-game Zubats now know Absorb instead.

** Throughout ''Sun & Moon'' [[TheChick Lillie]] spent the entire game hiding behind the player's back whenever trouble started and had no Pokémon of her own. Then comes ''VideoGame/PokemonUltraSunAndUltraMoon'', where [[spoiler: in the post-game Lillie manages to defeat a Team Rocket Grunt on her own then proceeds to back up the player in a Multi Battle with a Level 60 Clefairy. The Grunt she floored even comments on how strong she is.]]

* In the PC game series ''Videogame/DarkParables'', Princess Briar Rose gets to take one over the course of the player character's career. She's a classic DamselInDistress when the player first meets her (which is understandable since she's Literature/SleepingBeauty - ''the'' Sleeping Beauty). The next time she encounters the detective, she has become a BadassPrincess who fights evil with magic plants.

** 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.

** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', [[TheClan Great House]] [[TheMagocracy Telvanni]] Councilor and Mage-Lord Master Neloth was an [[WizardsLiveLonger ancient wizard]] who could barely move without a special ointment being applied to him and who also seemed to be suffering from some form of dementia. In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'''s ''Dragonborn'' DLC, which takes place [[TimeSkip over 200 years]] later, Neloth returns, and is significantly more badass. At one point, he accompanies the [[PlayerCharacter Dragonborn]] to a Dwemer ruin to obtain one of the Black Books. He's capable of casting multiple high-level, extremely powerful spells such as Incinerate, Thunderbolt, and Summon Storm Atronach as well as buffs such as Ebonyflesh. He'll single-handedly cut a swath through most of the enemies you'll face. When you encounter the dragon, Krosulhah, that [[BigBad Miraak]] sent after you, Neloth is present, and he has a good chance of being able to incapacitate the dragon without help.
