There is a Powergirl comic with an alien monster that is like this. The first time she fights it, it's fairly smart and tricky. Every time she beats it, usually by ripping or punching bits off, the bits regrow to another full monster. But it has shared monster intelligence which gets spread thinner and thinner. Each monster is stupider and stupider. Once she realizes this she breaks them all apart into thousands of pieces and turns them into really ugly livestock.
