*** Groudon spent three and a half generations being seen as entirely inferior to Kyogre due to both being weak to the latter's attacks and not having [=STAB=] on the fire attacks boosted by it's ability. Then ''Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire'' gave it a psuedo-Mega Evolution called Primal Reversion. Primal Groudon's new ability nullifies all water attacks and it becomes part fire type so it can finally take advantage of it's sun boosted fire moves. As a result, Primal Groudon took over Kyogre's former position as ''the'' defining force in the Ubers metagame.

*** 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.]]

** His successor, VideoGame/MegaManX. Unlike Mega, X was built from the ground up with combat in mind, but his {{Wide Eyed Idealism}} made him a liability to the Maverick Hunters and gave Sigma the excuse he needed to turn Maverick. The first game and its remake, ''Maverick Hunter X'', both revolve around X growing out of it and becoming the terrifyingly powerful MartialPacifist we know from ''Mega Man X2'' onward.

* Some characters in ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'' have a stronger version of themselves in the form of rarer version (R/SR becoming an SR/SSR) or an event only character. Some SR and SSR characters have also been upgraded with a final uncap which adds another 20 levels and a number of significant upgrades, in some cases including a new ability; this is often used as a Balance Buff to power up an older character.

*** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', Liara T'Soni has gone from being an awkward archaeologist who uses her Biotics to defend herself on remote digs, to [[spoiler:a powerful information dealer. When you first walk into her office, you hear her threaten to ''flay someone alive''. [[Series/{{Firefly}} With her mind.]]]] At the beginning of the Lair of the Shadow Broker DLC, she smacks elite soldiers around with her mind while shooting them to pieces with an automatic gun.

[[LegacyCharacter Just as he did with his predecessor]].]] In the third game it is revealed that she is also [[spoiler: One quarter Krogan.]]

** 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]]''.
