Marty McFly in BACK TO THE FUTURE II and III. The whole "chicken" thing came right of the blue and added a character trait that was nowhere in sight during the first movie.

That is, the characters don't learn or change at all, and end the film as exactly who they were at the start.

I don't know. At the beginning, Venkman is a charlatan and simply sees the ghost busting as a financial opportunity. Egon and Ray seem to be very narrowly focused on their research. Even Winston is just there to get paid.

By the end, these four are willing to give their lives to save New York City. I'd say that's a bit of growth.

Yeah, but that seems more about them starting out just trying to do their jobs, and ending up having to save both their own lives and the lives of everyone in the city because of the situation they've walked into.

On a specific character level, they're all still the same guys they were before. They just happened to save the world! In that last scene, Egon still wants to get a piece of Lewis' brain tissue, and Ray is still spouting historical precedent for a supernatural occurrence, which is just what they both would have done at the beginning of the film. No one's been humbled or freaked out by what they've just been through.

Venkman's really the only one who comes close to some kind of growth, in that he sorta-kinda goes from conman skeptic to believer. 

Here's the video I mentioned, by the way:

I'll nominate Ash from the Evil Dead series. He starts out as a credibly panicky young adult in a relatively straightforward horror film. The second film in the series is actually a remake with a strong satiric bent, and Campbell's character becomes far more cartoonish. By Army of Darkness, he's a cynical, gun-slinging badass.

Rocky Balboa changed twice, he evolved between Rocky II and III and devolved between IV and V.
