You know the old saying "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger"? This is the dire half-dragon version of that.
The Adaptive Ability is a power to adapt to any power used against it. Hit this enemy with a fireball? Next time it's immune to fire. Same with any Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors attack. Cut it, it now has armor. Psychic powers, it now has mindshields. A long fall might give it wings. Try to Tele-Frag it? Now warping into where it is will redistribute you.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Logic would dictate the "easy" way to beat it is to use an overwhelming attack to begin with. However, this goes against most heroic codes, so by the time they've slowly cranked up the power of their attacks, the villain has "adapted" quite a bit.
Beings with an Adaptive Ability are very often Social Darwinists, if they're not mindless monsters. When combined with a sufficient Healing Factor, it can effectively make them invincible.
The result is It Only Works Once. The good guys will easily be convinced that Evil Evolves. The functional opposite is Power Copying. Compare and with Energy Absorption and Feed It with Fire, where the defender is actually powered by being attacked (with "energy" and fire, respectively). See also Adaptive Armor.
They have a high chance of being an Ultimate Life Form.

In Dune, the Bene Gesserit (and those trained in their methods like Paul Atreides) have the ability to change their internal chemistry. This makes them immune to poisoning, as they will simply change the composition of the poison to something that is not lethal.

In Twig, the protagonist, Sylvester, is regularly injected with a cocktail of venoms and toxins which have this effect on his brain by boosting his brain plasticity, effectively enabling him to rapidly increase his skills in an area he focuses on at the cost of long-term memory loss and deterioration in areas he doesn't focus on. He uses it to adapt his skillset to fill the role he needs to fill in his team, most frequently as The Social Expert.

In Worm, Crawler of the Slaughterhouse Nine combines this with a massive Healing Factor, one which lets him fully regenerate within seconds of being harmed. He deliberately throws himself into harm's way in order to become stronger. At one point, he's exposed to a nanothorn attack that takes most of his body apart on a molecular scale...which causes the destroyed portion of his body to grow back with biological nanomachines that can disintegrate anything he touches. The heroes only manage to kill him by carpet bombing the area he's in with super-villain made bombs which turn him into glass.

Syndrome's Omnidroid in The Incredibles is a much more mundane version of this, insomuch as anything involving a giant robot can be mundane. The Omnidroid's A.I. is programmed to analyze and understand anything used against it, and then adapt its tactics accordingly. The Omnidroid was tested against supers, and whenever a version was destroyed, Syndrome just built a new version based on that data and tested it against the same super (invariably defeating them). Throw rocks at it? It'll throw boulders back. Toss it in lava? It's Nigh Invulnerable and then will bathe its claws in lava to turn them red-hot. Outspeed, outmaneuver, or outthink it? The next version is faster, more agile, and smarter. Control it using a remote? It will realize what's going on and attack the remote, removing it from your access. Syndrome finds this out to his own detriment when he attempts to stage a fight with the final version.

This is pretty much the point of the Zerg in StarCraft. Notably, their upgrade building is called the "Evolution Chamber," in which the Overmind pits hundreds of zerg warriors against each other and only keeps the strong, and is also the fluff explanation for the origin of Banelings.
In the campaign of Starcraft II Heart Of The Swarm approximately half the evolution missions involve zerg exposed to various environmental hazards (acid pools, lava, experimental nukes...) in order to grant them new abilities. In the other half the zerg absorb DNA from creatures they consume.

Bleach:
Every time he became injured or close to death, the Hogyoku gave Aizen a new form to counter it. At least until the Hogyoku got sick of it and withdrew its support.
Yhwach's Schrift allows him to assess everything that's thrown at him and predict accordingly. Haschwalth, then Yhwach himself, both assert that, once Yhwach has seen all that his opponent is capable of (or even what they will do in the near future), defeating him is next to impossible.
Mayuri Kurotsuchi reveals in the Vandenreich arc that he modified his Bankai to give it this ability. After gathering information on an enemy, it "gives birth" to a creature most suited to fighting it.
Sternritter "D" of "The Deathdealing" Askin Nakk Le Vaar has this as part of his Poisonous Person powers; by taking in a large amount of the substance he intends to make lethal, he can no longer be killed by said substance because he can adjust his resistance to it. It also works wonders for defense in that he tanks his opponent's attacks before adjusting his resistance to their Reiatsu, thus rendering all subsequent attacks useless.
Urahara Kisuke's bankai has the ability to dissect and modify anything it wishes. When used defensively, it can take something damaged and make it stronger, and help it recover from or even resist whatever damaged it in the first place. Combined with his analytical mind, which enables him to counter any ability he's adjusted to, this makes him an extremely adaptable opponent and nigh-impossible to beat if you fail to do so in your first attempt.

In Stealth Symphony, this is protagonist Jig's main power, combined with Catch and Return: Any attack targeted at him done with intent to harm him will be automatically caught and nullified by a backpack-like device stuck to his back, which will then generate the same type of attack at double power back at the attacker. In spite of how overpowered this sounds, however, it has a number of loopholes, which Jig's enemies quickly learn to exploit.

In JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tendency, Kars (the Big Bad) uses the Red Stone of Aja to instantly become the ultimate creature, with the power of the entire living world in hand and the ability to adapt to any environment or situation. He is effectively immune to every possible attack because he could simply change into a form that resisted it before it even hit him. Even when thrown into a volcano, he surrounds his body with bags of air to insulate him from the immense heat. In this state, he can create Hamon as intense as the surface of the Sun. Ironically, his power is his doom, when his Hamon comes in contact with the Red Stone, it is magnified immensely, causing a volcanic reaction that shoots him into space, where he floats around forever as a twisted mineral-creature until he eventually ceases thinking.

Warframe:
The Sentients were designed with the ability to adapt to almost any harmful conditions that they could encounter, with the sole exception being exposure to the Void. They also had a fairly extreme Healing Factor, which meant that if one were to blow of a Sentient's limb, they would grow it back, the severed limb would regrow into a duplicate of the first, and both would now be effectively immune to the weapon you used. Sentients in-game lack this ability due to Void exposure rendering them infertile. When they rebelled against the Orokin, they were only stopped when the Orokin weaponised and deployed the Tenno, who channeled the Void to fight. In gameplay terms, Sentient fighters (Battalysts, Conculysts and Mimics) will gain a 95% damage reduction to the damage type that was most used on it when reduced to certain health thresholds. This forces the player to either bring a varied selection of elements on their weapons, or switch to Operator Mode and blast them with Void Energy to reset their resistances.
The Adaptation mod, fittingly enough, grants this to any Warframe that equips it. With it equipped, incoming attacks will grant a stacking damage resistance buff to the player. With careful setup, even the squishiest of Warframes can become quite durable with this mod. The buff is determined by the whichever damage type makes up the majority of the attack (an attack that deals a mixture of Impact, Puncture and Slash will only grant resistance to one, while the other two will continue to deal full damage). The amount of resistance gained is determined by the rank of the mod, not the strength of the attack itself (so rapid-fire, weaker attacks will get you to the cap much quicker than slower, hard-hitting attacks). The aforementioned cap is a 90% damage reduction, regardless of the mod's level. Finally, there is no limit to the number of damage types you can adapt to at once, but each buff will disappear after a set time if you don't get damaged again by the same damage type.

The android Amazo in Justice League. Eventually gets so many powers he doesn't know what to do with them and decides to become a philosopher. Doomsday to a lesser extent as per his comic counterpart. Try to lobotomize him with heat vision? His skull thickens in time for the next fight. Thus, in Doomsday's second appearance, Superman's desperate decision to copy the tactic of his Justice Lord counterpart amounts to absolutely nothing.

An episode of The Outer Limits (1995), "The New Breed", had a man infested with Nanomachines programmed to heal and protect his body, which they did mindlessly and efficiently— he nearly drowns and grows gills, he gets beaten up and grows extra layers of bone, and his skin develops poison glands like a jellyfish, so no one can touch him. They also, for some reason, decide that having a limited field of view is a flaw, so they grow an extra pair of eyes on the back of his head.

Warning Forever has this as its main mechanic: a time attack boss rush where the boss repeatedly comes back stronger in a way that seeks to counter how the player destroyed it in the last round. For example, if it was defeated by having its rear armor destroyed, its next form will have more armor on its rear. It also changes which weapons it adds depending on how effective they were (e.g. if it killed the player using lasers frequently in one round, expect it to have a lot more lasers in the next round).

Toriko:
Gourmet Hunters have this due to being infused with Gourmet Cells as well as their personal abilities. Most of them have Acquired Poison Immunity due to this.
Later on, the "Enbu" martial art is introduced, with allows to synchronize every single cell in the user's body so that the few that are most capable of handling a given task are "copied" by all the others. For example: some cells handle the effects of high gravity better than others, so if all cells copy the behavior of those ones, you can ignore a gravity 10 or 100 times higher than normal.

Warlock Nether Protection and Death Knight Acclimation talents in World of Warcraft work somewhat like this. They have a chance to reduce the damage taken from the school of the last spell that hit you.
There's also some creatures, notably certain types of Voidwalkers, with an ability like this. Hit them long enough with one spell school and they not only gain an immunity for that type of damage, but can now use an AoE spell of that type.

Taken to an annoying degree with Naraku from InuYasha. He rarely shows up, preferring to attack through subordinates, but when he does, he's always too powerful to take down with whatever attack was effective against him last time. One has to wonder why Sango and Miroku even bothered to come along with Inuyasha, as their attacks eventually became utterly useless against Naraku and they were pointlessly risking their lives.

Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers
The War Zord Cyclopsis acted like this after it was rebuilt by Lokar. In a bit of a subversion, that "evolution" disappeared after the Rangers retreated and when they came back to fight, they knew how to overcome it (rapidly switching tactics). "Overload! Overload! Too many changes!"
Hatchasarus was repeatedly destroyed and would reassemble with more bling (though not necessarily directly related to what had killed him before.) He can't be taken down for good until Cardiatron (the giant, floating heart that is its central computer) is destroyed.

Sentinels of the Multiverse villain Omnitron has a card called Adaptive Plating Subroutine. After getting hit by an attack, he becomes immune to damage of that type. Thankfully when he gets hit with a different type he switches immunities to the new type, so he is only ever immune to one type of damage at a time.

Here Be Dragons: Taylor's power starts out as a minor version of this, logical, due to possessing Lung's transformative powers. Later, Contessa forces a second trigger event, giving her a far more potent version of this ability.

The Ultimate Marvel version of Wolverine is implied to be the same; in addition to regenerating damaged tissue, his Healing Factor can modify his physiology to compensate for life-threatening injuries. For example, decapitating him resulted in him developing the ability to directly oxygenate the blood for his brain through his skin. When his severed head was put in a total vacuum, he went into stasis until brought out. Ultimate Nick Fury theorizes that Wolverine's mutant power is less "Healing Factor" and more "survive anything". Well, that worked until Magneto killed him by simultaneously destroying every cell in his body.

In One-Punch Man, Garou has the ability to heal and grow stronger every time he is defeated. By fighting Saitama, he eventually becomes a nigh Physical God. Spoofed when Saitama continues to crush him, and his body decides he can't evolve any farther, so he starts devolving with each attack until he returns to ordinary human levels.

In Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness you have the Adaptive Shapeshift spell which transforms the caster into a creature best suited for a given situation, for example casting it with low hp turns you into a Forest Troll with a Healing Factor, casting it after being hit with ice attacks several times in a row transforms you into an Ice Jotunn with cold resistance, if both of the above are true you become an Ice Troll etc.

In Exalted, one Charm the Lunar have allows them to render themselves immune to the first weapon classification to hit them in a scene. This is somewhat mechanically awkward because weapons aren't classified in a way that makes this make sense as it's written (according to some readings, a punch could render you immune to all bludgeoning weapons, or to all martial arts weapons, or to all non-artifact martial arts weapons and so on), but it's the thought that counts.

Resident Evil 6 introduces a new species of B.O.W called the J'avo that can do this, with about a dozen different mutations that can occur depending on if you've been targeting their arm, legs, torso or head. Plus, multiple mutations can occur on the same J'avo, so you can give them two different arm mutations, a head mutation, a torso mutation, and legs mutation. Plus, there's a rare chance of them cocooning themselves to undergo a "Complete Mutation", emerging as a coherent but much tougher variant of B.O.W, with several different outcomes, ranging from the armor-plated Lightning Bruiser Napad to the dart-throwing, wall crawling Strelat.

The Vord in Codex Alera definitely qualify. When we first run into them, they're a bunch of creepy spiders who spin wax instead of webs. Then there are big warrior beetles, and little spiders that can take over your brain,. And that was back before they got scary. They could quickly create entire new species and generate massive numbers of them. They see human knights in armor? Suddenly there are heavily armored humanoids with swords to fight them. Make a wall of shields? Now there are enormous mantises with sickle-arms that can reach over the shields and disembowel you. Oh, you can fly with magic? How about warriors with dragonfly wings. Team up with huge wolf-men? That's okay, we've got a vord for that too. Build a massive wall just to keep us out? How about a Vord the size of a Gothic cathedral smashing into your wall! Wow, good thing you have that amazing magic that we can't quite seem to get hold of... oh. Nevermind.
And to make matters worse, they're obsessively xenophobic, want to Take Over the World, aren't fussed about whether they do it by assimilating us, slaughtering us, or sticking us in wax to digest to death, and are controlled by a Queen who's the stuff of nightmares all by herself.

Unsurprisingly, Mutants & Masterminds features a power or two for this. "Adaptation" works like it says. Then there's "Nemesis"- every round you pick one person to be your nemesis, and you get X points worth of powers suited to fighting them (X being based on your power rank). The catch is that while you are free to suggest things, the GM has final say on what you get, and can distribute things however he likes (he could give you one strong useful power, 2 medium-strength, fairly useful powers, 10 weak powers of varying helpfulness...)

The epic level D&D monster, the Infernal, has this as a specific power, only able to be affected by a spell once from the same spellcaster.
At lower level there is the skindancer, which has pretty good resistance to the last weapon type that struck it, and the last magical energy type that affected it.
In the red box edition, the master's level book described the Adapters, who develop a temporary immunity when struck by an elemental attack.
In 4th edition, all demon type enemies gain the ability to immediately become resistant to any elemental energy type attack (acid, cold, fire, lightning, thunder) after you hit them with it once. So something that doesn't put them down on the first hit will be much weaker against them the second time.

The Replicators from Stargate SG-1 have essentially the same adaptability level as the Borg from Star Trek; they, too, cannot seem to adapt to being shot with a machine gun, until Season 5...Viva La Evolution!
Ditto for their cousins the Asurans in Stargate Atlantis, although they are already in humanoid form when they encounter the Atlantis team. In one episode, dozens of Asurans throw themselves at a shield that disintegrates them, until, finally, the rest adapt and are able to pass.

When the USS Odyssey is destroyed and the Defiant later disabled easily by mere Jem'hadar fighters (that later on become little more than cannon fodder) using "some kind of phased polaron beam", the DS9 crew sets about developing countermeasures. Sure enough, without any further fights with the Jem'hadar, the Defiant's shields have been adapted by O'Brien and his teams to block the phased polaron fire, if only for a few shots. After "The Ship", the polaron beams are no longer any more effective than phasers or disruptors.

Mass Effect:
Mechanically, the geth. When a platform is destroyed, the runtimes operating it will return to the main collective if there is a comm buoy in range (hence why Legion can get killed in the Suicide Mission; he tries that but there are no buoys in range). Extrapolating, any info on new tactics and weapons will be returned too, so while they may not have instant immunity like the Borg, they will develop countermeasures much more quickly than any other race which is the crux of the Quarian's problems come the attempt to retake Rannoch; the Geth adapt to their hacking attempts far too quickly to be effective until Admiral Xen makes a breakthrough.
Biologically, the vorcha. Roughly humanoid aliens with no abundance of intellect, their bodies contain numerous pockets of undifferentiated cells, allowing each individual vorcha to adapt to new environmental influences. For instance, vorcha that land on higher-gravity worlds will develop stronger bones and muscles to compensate. When the Reapers invade, vorcha prove difficult for them to subdue, as they can adapt to ignore poisoned water supplies, or even Indoctrination.

Titan from Super Powereds. His power responded to frustration so that not only would he become tougher if he was ever actually hurt by a physical attack, but he would also become stronger if he ever failed to overcome a physical challenge like lifting a heavy object. He also reveals that his son Hershel inherited a different version of the same power. When kids were bullying him in school, Hershel's power manifested as his Superpowered Alter Ego Roy, who is stronger, more muscular, taller, and more social than Hershel. Everyone thinks that Hershel is just a shifter, until Titan reveals that Roy is a manifestation of Hershel's ideal self. This comes up, when Roy hits his physical limit, unable to lift 800 lb weights no matter how many times he's able to lift 750 lb weights. Titan explains that Hershel needs to start pushing himself in training as well, allowing his adaptive ability to raise Roy's Cap. For Titan, this also applies to superpowers. Certain abilities no longer affect him (as much) after the first exposure. For example, when Aether tries to phase him through a wall, it doesn't work, because Titan once fought a criminal super with a similar power, so his body adapted to counter it. He could temporarily disable it, but he has to constantly focus on it. Healing Hands also don't work on him for the same reason, but he has a limited Healing Factor to compensate. He specifically told the government to keep a certain super on-hand with the power to cause fatal brain aneurysms in order to take Titan down, if he ever turned rogue. It would only work once, though, as a botched attempt would make him immune.

Star Trek:
The Borg from Star Trek: The Next Generation are explicitly described as being able to adapt to anything used against them, so most weapons will only work two or three times before they lose most effectiveness. Melee attacks have a better chance of succeeding, but you're still fighting a cyborg with super-strength. Worf and Data do fine, but a Red Shirt tried to rifle butt a drone and got trounced. Data rampaging in Engineering also got him thrown behind a forcefield eventually, if only because the Queen was in the room.
In Elite Force, Seven came up with the IMod (Infinity Modulation Weapon), a weapon that unleashes devastating energy in a single burst (at least against the Borg), and also automatically changes energy signatures. Normal phasers and phase rifles can do the same thing as the IMod, but must be manually changed to new frequencies, will take time as you do said changing, and are limited in power. Human (and alien) imagination being what it is, it's not easy to keep coming up with random frequencies. However, in the first mission of the sequel (taking place in parallel with the Grand Finale of Star Trek: Voyager), the Borg aboard the sphere come up with a counter to the I-MOD by generating an interference field that disables the weapon, forcing you to rely on other weapons and use them sparingly.
In the end, the Borg have failed to adapt to only one thing: sheer overwhelming firepower. That said, their adaptive ability means a Borg ship or drone can take far more punishment than they should... And Borg ships are massive.
The Federation itself is a milder example than the Borg, but they have been somewhat accurately compared to the Borg before, in both the assimilation aspect and the adaptation. But since the show's protagonists are from the UFP, they are never the villains of the show from a normal perspective. Except for Section 31.
Whenever they are faced with a cloaking device that actually cloaks a ship from their sensors, the Federation quickly begins work on adapting sensors.
When the USS Odyssey is destroyed and the Defiant later disabled easily by mere Jem'hadar fighters (that later on become little more than cannon fodder) using "some kind of phased polaron beam", the DS9 crew sets about developing countermeasures. Sure enough, without any further fights with the Jem'hadar, the Defiant's shields have been adapted by O'Brien and his teams to block the phased polaron fire, if only for a few shots. After "The Ship", the polaron beams are no longer any more effective than phasers or disruptors.
The Breen energy-dampening weapon can easily disable Romulan, Klingon, or Starfleet ships even with shield and ablative armor. For a while the only defense is a modification to the tritium intermix of the warp core—but only Klingon ships have one. At most two episodes after Kira, Odo, Garak, and Damar steal a Jem'hadar fighter being retrofitted with the energy-dampening weapon in "Tacking Into the Wind", Starfleet engineers have worked out how to completely counteract the weapon for Federation and Romulan ships.
The entirety of the Federation's fight/contingency against the Borg after the Battle of Wolf 359 is a massive quest to adapt their technology to be able to effectively fight the Borg, adapt their weapons and shields in combat just as the Borg do, and generally out-adapt the Borg just enough to survive and win the day, with overkill being happily accepted. It's actually been hinted at that the Borg keeps attacking the Federation but always backs off instead of going all the way and wiping them out because the Federation keeps coming up with better weapons that they can then later steal and use for themselves, since the Borg can't come up with new inventions on their own.

Doomsday and (in the Silver Age) the Calculator and the Shaggy Man from The DCU. Doomsday is a notable example because his Adaptive Ability allows him to literally come back from the dead immune to whatever killed him in the first place on top of his Healing Factor. It says something when The DCU heroes, after exhausting just about every option available to hurt/kill him, eventually had to send him to the end of time just to stop his rampage. In some stories, Doomsday becomes able to adapt offensive abilities to counter his opponents. For example, when fighting Martian Manhunter, he becomes able to hit intangible beings and breathe fire as fire is a Martian's weakness. When Superman tries fighting him at a distance, he becomes able to fire his spikes like harpoons.

Jr. Troopa in Paper Mario is a minor version. He starts off pretty incompetent. As the game goes on, however, he will acquire new powers to counter abilities Mario uses against him, combining them together late into the game. That being said, he remains rather incompetent throughout the whole game, as while he can adapt to limit Mario's ability to fight him, Mario keeps gaining more techniques that render him a joke again.

His powers have gone from being as strong as Super Saiyan 3 Goku to being able to No-Sell Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Vegeta in his base form before unlocking his Super Saiyan Rose transformation that handily curb stomps him. And this is only the start of a series of power-ups that he obtains.

The Evolutionary Invasion Objects in Nobunagun rapidly create new species based on their experiences from past battles. After Nobunagun shoots down a whole battalion of them, the next one they fight has tough armor that her bullets can't penetrate.

Pokémon has two: the Porygon series and Kecleon.
More specifically, Porygon2's Conversion2 move and Kecleon's Color Change ability. Conversion2 is rather more limited, since the nature of Pokémon's Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors means that the type it changes to is randomly chosen from the types that resist the last attack. Color Change is a more typical example.
Ironically, since Ghost and Dragon-types are weak against themselves, using such a move on Kecleon actually makes it weaker to these attacks then it was before (It starts off respectively immune and neutral to them). Oops.
Variations of the glitch MissingNo. had no type themselves, and therefore took the type of the last Pokemon loaded.
There's also an ability called Adaptability, but it only powers up move of the same type (more than usual).
The ability Download boosts the attack stat of the Pokemon based on which of the defense stats of the opponents is lower.
Sometimes invoked by players in the more random battle facilities in the series - Battle Tower, Battle Frontier, Battle Subway and Battle Maison - as part of the AI. Jossed by RNG-researching hackers who assert that opponents' sets do not take player Pokémon into account. Some players go well beyond streaks of 50, 100 or 200 victories to attain 1,000 or more wins in a row.

In the Sword of Truth series, the beast from the underworld is said to adapt to prevent one strategy from working on it more than once. Ironically this works to its detriment—while a given strategy only works once, as a creature of chaos its methods and weaknesses are totally random. On at least one occasion, it had the heroes entirely dead to rights, but for the fact its current form dissolved in water, discovered just as it starts to rain.

X-Men:
The appropriately-named Darwin has this as his mutant power — he will immediately mutate whatever he needs to survive. Immerse him in water and he'll grow gills, burn him and he becomes fireproof, poison him and his body chemistry shifts to neutralize it, etc. It's really too bad that it only happens as an unconscious survival mechanism; with control over that power he'd be damn near omnipotent. It should be noted that his powers don't always give him the ability needed to win a fight, only to survive. When faced with the Hulk, he gained the ability to teleport several states away.
Random, another Marvel mutant, whose other power was turning his hands into guns.
Another X-Men mutant, Lifeguard, gets whatever power is needed to save someone else and only “someone else”. The power does nothing to help if Lifeguard’s own life is the one in danger.

Magic: The Gathering:
The Slivers' more prominent traits were their fast evolution rate, adapting to overcome anything thrown at them. However, what made them so dangerous (both in the story and in game) was their species trait of sharing their adaptations with all other slivers in proximity. However, in-game, the slivers' abilities were conferred onto Slivers on all sides, so a Sliver Mirror Match could turn out deadly. Not to mention that there are some slivers with negative effects thrown in just to counter all-Sliver decks.
The Phyrexians are half-mechanical monstrosities who constantly seek to improve themselves. In the novel Time Streams, Phyrexian leader Kerrick uses this ability, coupled with the fact that he lives in a fast-time bubble, to stay several steps ahead of Urza.
The Evolve keyword causes a creature to get a +1/+1 counter whenever their controller plays a creature that has higher power and/or toughness. In other words, it grows bigger in response to a bigger creature arriving.

Ultra Series:
Ultraman Max had an extreme version: IF is a monster that can counter anything through Power Copying and Resurrective Immortality. Max blew it apart with the Max Galaxy, it regenerated instantly and fired it right back at him! He never defeated it...because IF cannot be defeated with violence.
Zaragas from the original Ultraman, on the other hand, has a more downplayed version. Whenever, it is hit by an attack that does not kill it, Zaragas' body evolves and increases in strength. When Science Patrol blasts it down with a hailstorm of missiles, it sheds its armour and grows dozens of bulb-like organs that amplify its Blinded by the Light abilities to the point where even Ultraman was incapacitated by them.

In Dragon Ball Z: The Return of Cooler, after his original body is all but destroyed, Cooler's mind merges with a sentient super-computer/space-ship called the Big Gete Star. The ship rebuilds him as a robot, and now, thanks to the ship's enormous resources, whenever Cooler's body is damaged, the ship simply repairs his body or fabricates a new one with whatever vulnerabilities it learned about removed. This comes to a head when the computer decides Cooler's main flaw is that there's only one of him. Cue enormous army of Meta-Coolers, averting Conservation of Ninjutsu in that each copy is equally as strong as the original.

The short-lived villain Freak from Spider-Man's Brand New Day storyline became horribly deformed after an accidental chemical bath, but as a result was able to form a cocoon around himself when he died and regenerate with an adaptation against whatever killed him. Such deaths included being set on fire (resulting in a leathery hide), getting shot (armour plating) and strangulation (thicker musculature, particularly around the neck), but he was always just as hideous as before, and all he did with his powers was try to find more drugs to snort up.

In Fairy Tail, Wall Eehto has the ability to Enemy Scan his foes and then alter his own body or create minions that capitalized on those weaknesses. He himself went so far as to permanently alter his body so he could negate and even absorb his own Logical Weakness to electricity. However, his minions can each only be specialized to one opponent at a time, leaving them vulnerable to said opponents switching up, and Wall himself can be blindsided by attacks too fast for him to analyze in time which leads to his death when Laxus hits him with a lightning attack with properties he's not immune to.

Berserker from Fate/stay night must be "killed" 12 times to make the death stick. What's worse is that after he's died once, he is then permanently immune to whatever it was that killed him. Given how hard it is to kill him even once, this makes him one hell of The Juggernaut. On the other hand, extraordinarily powerful attacks are capable of taking away multiple "lives" in one blow, though such attacks are both rare and difficult in the extreme to perform, even for Servants.

Warhammer 40,000 has the Tyranids:
Even worse: Not just one of them, but at least that entire fleet you are fighting can get that characteristic.
The Tau were able to exploit this: by getting their Kroot allies to take on Tyranids in forests, particularly agile but also rather fragile Gaunts were produced that had adapted extremely well to fighting arboreal warriors...then they drew the 'Nids out of the forests and opened up with their usual array of BFGs.
This is also believed, both in-universe and out, to be how some Tyranid lifeforms came to be. The psyker-like Zoanthropes are thought to be derived from Eldar psykers, and the extremely resilient Tyrant Guard may have been cultivated from Space Marines.

The Golem in Chrono Trigger not only defends against the attack type used on it, but begins attacking using that type. This trait makes it very dangerous to the unprepared, and also makes it one of the easiest bosses to beat. With the right equipment and the right attacks, it's very easy to force the Golem to use attacks that are very inefficient against you. In a New Game+, it's stupidly easy to force Golem to use attacks that heal you. Alternatively, if you have a full range of elemental attacks, the Golem can simply be forced into an endless pattern of elemental charging so long as you never use the same element in succession (assuming you can keep up with the MP cost).

Played with in a strange way in the 2003 Astro Boy series. Astro was built with the ability to evolve and adapt to any situation making him potentially one of the strongest Robots every created. However his reluctance to fight despite being pushed into it means he never fulfills his potential. He gains all his staple abilities (jetpack flight, a finger laser and an arm canon) within the first handful of episodes and never evolves any further than that because he never needs to.

Doctor Who:
The Cybermen have always had traits of The Assimilator, but this aspect gets focused on in the incarnation introduced in "Nightmare in Silver" (apparently, a fusion of the original Mondasian Cybermen and the newer Cybus Cybermen). Sometimes you'll take a few of them down before they adapt — others, it won't cost them a single unit.
"Orphan 55": It turns out that the Dregs have this ability: the weapons carried by Tranquillity Spa's security have to have power randomizers built into them to be effective for sustained fire. They also mutated from breathing oxygen to carbon dioxide as a result of environmental damage done to their planet.

The Games We Play:
Hydras are an entire Grimm species with this as their main ability. They develop resistances and countermeasures to whatever hurts them. As a result, with few exceptions, Hydras are either killed young when a large number of Huntsmen fall on them like a tonne of bricks before they can develop any useful resistances, or not at all. As different Hydra adapt to deal with different threats, Mix-and-Match Critters is the result on stronger Hydras.
Gilgamesh has an active version of this. Named "Intelligent Design", he is not limited to reacting to harm but can actively transform himself to gain the abilities needed to fight his enemies.

In Elite Force, Seven came up with the IMod (Infinity Modulation Weapon), a weapon that unleashes devastating energy in a single burst (at least against the Borg), and also automatically changes energy signatures. Normal phasers and phase rifles can do the same thing as the IMod, but must be manually changed to new frequencies, will take time as you do said changing, and are limited in power. Human (and alien) imagination being what it is, it's not easy to keep coming up with random frequencies. However, in the first mission of the sequel (taking place in parallel with the Grand Finale of Star Trek: Voyager), the Borg aboard the sphere come up with a counter to the I-MOD by generating an interference field that disables the weapon, forcing you to rely on other weapons and use them sparingly.

An early X-Men comic during the Mimic's brief tenure as a hero pitted him against the Super Adaptoid, that had already perfected the abilities of The Avengers. After beating everyone else, including Professor Xavier, the Adaptoid fought the Mimic to a standstill until the Mimic threw the match and psychically convinced the Super Adaptoid to copy his powers. The Mimic's own power was to copy other people's powers, just like the Super-Adaptoid. The attempt to copy that power exceeded the Super-Adaptoid's capacity to duplicate. The feedback also temporarily shut down the Mimic's powers.

In Last and First Men, the Martians do this while fighting the Second Men. Over the course of several thousand years, naturally. The shorter timescale is partly down to the Martians' very unusual biology and partly due to the fact that genetics was very poorly understood when the novel was written. The structure of DNA wouldn't be identified for another quarter century, for example.

Arcueid from Tsukihime claims such an ability. She was immune to conventional weapons to begin with, and gained immunities to conceptual weapons as they were used to fight her. When Shiki killed her, she was sure he used some obscure far eastern conceptual weapon. In a slight subversion, she can't become immune to that particular ability, either.
The manga adaptation gives the same ability to Roa, a vampire (accidentally) created by Arcueid. He demonstrates it in his battle against Ciel - by the end of the fight, her signature Black Key swords have become so ineffective that being impaled by several dozen at once barely phases him.

Story-wise, there is a promotional ITEM for Dragon Age II that does this; The Belt of Hindsight. The trailer for this belt says that it analyzes the deaths of its wearers, and develops magic defenses to slightly protect future wearers against what it was unable to block before. Current resistances when obtained by Hawke include Fire, Poison, Stabs, and Witches. Don't ask, just read the obituary on the leather, magically scrawled in lyrium ink.

After Kaiser Ghidorah breaks several of his bones including his neck and then throws him into a river, he crawls out and instantly heals with his body reinforced so it won't happen again. After Monster X hits him several times, his skin toughens up so that X hurts his own hands when he tries to punch him. The only way to beat him is to knock him into the air so that he cannot draw strength from the ground and regenerate, then destroy his core.

Legion of Super-Heroes member and eventual traitor Nemesis Kid had the power to gain whatever abilities were needed to defeat any single opponent. This backfired when he faced Projectra, after murdering her husband Karate Kid. His powers gave him the ability to see through her illusions, but when he tried to gloat over her helplessness, she snapped his neck with her bare hands.

Spawn's living symbiotic costume had this ability. After getting whupped by some angels, Spawn retreats to lick his wounds. His costume regenerates from tatters into a new form with bigger spikes and gauntlets, and the next time he meets the angels the fight goes more his way. It had the unfortunate side effect of making the suit more powerful until it almost ate him, though.

Barbra from Dawn of a New Age: Oldport Blues gains an adaptive superpower similar in design to Doomsday from The DCU: whenever she dies, she's resurrected with an immunity to whatever killed her.

Dragon Ball Z:
Anyone with Saiyan blood will receive large increases in strength upon recovering from near-fatal injuries. The Saiyans are the embodiment of Nietzsche's famous quote. If they are near-death for whatever reason, when they are recovered, they will come back stronger. This also works with actual death, provided there's a way to come Back from the Dead afterward. A few enemies were too powerful for this to matter much, though. In the manga version of Dragon Ball Super, Future Trunks theorizes that this Saiyan ability yields diminishing returns over time, as in the manga version of his arc, he, Goku, and Vegeta get injured and healed several times and the strength increase is negligible.
Dragon Ball Z Chou Saiya Densetsu had this implemented: If a Saiyan character won a battle with 5 or less HP remaining, they would gain a level immediately no matter what.
Goku's adaptive ability allows him to become immune to almost any technique he has seen at least once. Like Shishioh, it's because he innately knows how to counter them. This is best seen with his fight against Cell, where all Cell's copied techniques fail to harm Goku.
Since Cell was partially cloned from Saiyan cells, he has this ability as well. In fact, the combined abilities to Self-Destruct + Survive so long as one cell remains + come back stronger from a near-death experience is quite dangerous.
In Dragon Ball Z: The Return of Cooler, after his original body is all but destroyed, Cooler's mind merges with a sentient super-computer/space-ship called the Big Gete Star. The ship rebuilds him as a robot, and now, thanks to the ship's enormous resources, whenever Cooler's body is damaged, the ship simply repairs his body or fabricates a new one with whatever vulnerabilities it learned about removed. This comes to a head when the computer decides Cooler's main flaw is that there's only one of him. Cue enormous army of Meta-Coolers, averting Conservation of Ninjutsu in that each copy is equally as strong as the original.
Goku Black from Dragon Ball Super possess an enhanced version of the Saiyan's power-up ability in that any damage caused to him will instantly cause him to become stronger. His powers have gone from being as strong as Super Saiyan 3 Goku to being able to No-Sell Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Vegeta in his base form before unlocking his Super Saiyan Rose transformation that handily curb stomps him. And this is only the start of a series of power-ups that he obtains.
Hit can improve his Time Stands Still ability when facing opponents powerful enough to overcome its current limits.
Ganos' True Form works in the exact opposite way of Hit: his techniques don't improve, but he constantly gains strength, speed and resistance as he fights against a strong opponent.
In Dragon Ball Super: Broly, Broly is a mutant with a more advanced version of the Saiyan adaptibility. He can make himself become more powerful during battle if he is being overwhelmed by his current opponent, though there is a limit on how powerful he can become this way.

There was a robot called appropriately the Super Adaptoid that did this. In one comic, it was defeated by Ben Grimm who was his normal human self at the time, but wearing a suit that still gave him Super Strength. Ben Grimm tricked the Adaptoid into copying his normal human self, then used the suit's power to punch the Adaptoid out in one blow.
An early X-Men comic during the Mimic's brief tenure as a hero pitted him against the Super Adaptoid, that had already perfected the abilities of The Avengers. After beating everyone else, including Professor Xavier, the Adaptoid fought the Mimic to a standstill until the Mimic threw the match and psychically convinced the Super Adaptoid to copy his powers. The Mimic's own power was to copy other people's powers, just like the Super-Adaptoid. The attempt to copy that power exceeded the Super-Adaptoid's capacity to duplicate. The feedback also temporarily shut down the Mimic's powers.

Kuro Momotaro from Yu Yu Hakusho. His body possesses the ability to memorize the damage of any attack that hits him, while his weapons, the Steaming Spheres heal him from that damage, and give him the power to overcome it. Probably a useless ability if he's killed in one shot though.

Whenever DC's Resurrection Man is killed by something, he is reborn immune to the way he died. In fact, when he was killed by extreme pain, he came back as a woman, because women are supposedly more resistant to pain.

Shane "Goose" Gooseman from Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers had this power combined with his Shapeshifting, due to being a genetically engineered Super Soldier with a Series Five Implant that also acted as a Restraining Bolt if need be.

The Phyrexians are half-mechanical monstrosities who constantly seek to improve themselves. In the novel Time Streams, Phyrexian leader Kerrick uses this ability, coupled with the fact that he lives in a fast-time bubble, to stay several steps ahead of Urza.

Many of the enemies in Saint Seiya are fond of declaring that they could not be hit by a technique once they have already seen it. Given our heroes' reliance on Stock Footage finishing moves, this seems like it would be a downright crippling handicap for them ...

The Borg from Star Trek: The Next Generation are explicitly described as being able to adapt to anything used against them, so most weapons will only work two or three times before they lose most effectiveness. Melee attacks have a better chance of succeeding, but you're still fighting a cyborg with super-strength. Worf and Data do fine, but a Red Shirt tried to rifle butt a drone and got trounced. Data rampaging in Engineering also got him thrown behind a forcefield eventually, if only because the Queen was in the room.
In Elite Force, Seven came up with the IMod (Infinity Modulation Weapon), a weapon that unleashes devastating energy in a single burst (at least against the Borg), and also automatically changes energy signatures. Normal phasers and phase rifles can do the same thing as the IMod, but must be manually changed to new frequencies, will take time as you do said changing, and are limited in power. Human (and alien) imagination being what it is, it's not easy to keep coming up with random frequencies. However, in the first mission of the sequel (taking place in parallel with the Grand Finale of Star Trek: Voyager), the Borg aboard the sphere come up with a counter to the I-MOD by generating an interference field that disables the weapon, forcing you to rely on other weapons and use them sparingly.
In the end, the Borg have failed to adapt to only one thing: sheer overwhelming firepower. That said, their adaptive ability means a Borg ship or drone can take far more punishment than they should... And Borg ships are massive.
