** The iconic red-and-white Pokeball is very weak in the games and is used for low level Pokemon. In the anime it is ''extremely'' rare to see anything but a normal Pokeball used to catch a Pokemon, no matter how powerful they are.

** The iconic red-and-white Pokeball is very weak in Pokeball. In the games and is they're only really used very early into the game as they have a low catch rate. They're mostly only useful for low very low-level Pokemon and even then it's not unheard of an under level Pokemon. 10 Pokemon to break out the Pokeball if they're [=HP=] isn't down enough. In the anime it is however all the other Pokeballs (such as the Ultra Ball and Hyper Ball) [[DemotedToExtra are basically nonexistent]] and are little more than cameos most of the time. Basic pokeballs are used to catch any Pokemon, no matter how powerful. It's ''extremely'' rare to see anything but Pokemon not being caught in a normal Pokeball used to catch a Pokemon, no matter how powerful they are.basic Pokeball.

** In most of the video games, a Mewtwo is vastly superior to a Mew of the same Level in practically all areas; however, in ''Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie'', Mew was powerful enough to fight Mewtwo to a standstill. (This was also the case with Mons like Celebi and Jirachi in their anime appearances, much tougher than they were in the games.) Mewtwo is this trope in his own right, despite already being the ultimate badass [[{{Mons}} mon]] in the games to begin with. He gets upgraded from "merely" being really strong to being capable of [[ApocalypseHow wiping out all life on Earth outside of his island stronghold]]. And the heroes (with Mew's help) didn't ''stop'' Mewtwo, they just [[HeelFaceTurn persuaded him that it was wrong]].

** In ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'', Steven Stone is a bit character fetch quest objective. In Pokemon Advance he's... still a bit character [[FetchQuest fetch quest]] objective who only appears once, but also a total Badass, [[TheBeastmaster who is capable of controlling wild Aron,]] and took out Team Rocket in one hit. By the time of the reappearance in XY series, Steven is revealed to be the Hoenn Champion and has mastered Mega Evolution, although by that point his game counterpart has done so as well.

* In the Mitsuki Oosawa manga adaptation of ''[[FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem Seisen no Keifu]]'', WhiteMagicianGirl Diadora moves closer to the Competence Zone. Especially when she [[spoiler: takes King Clement's castle with only back up from Lachesis and Aira, ''without killing anyone'' and relaying in trickery and magic than brute force]], and the expanded version of her confrontation with [[spoiler: Manfroy, in which she ''does'' get kidnapped to follow the melodramatic DownerEnding of the first generation but still attempts to fight him in self-defense and to protect little Shanan.]]

** Botamo in both the manga and anime versions of ''Super'' is such a StoneWall that not even Goku can harm him. However, in the manga, Goku's attacks could send him flying, while in the anime, Goku's attacks couldn't even budge him.

** In the games, Delibird is considered to be one of the weakest Pokémon as its overall stats are rather low, it cannot evolve and it only learn Present via Level Up. The BigBad of the Gold, Silver, and Crystal arc uses one as his main Pokémon, being so well trained it can hold it's own against a ''[[OlympusMons Ho-Oh]]''.

** A DownPlayed example, but Freeza put up a much better fight with Super Saiyan Goku in the anime compared to the manga. In the manga, although Freeza did decently, it was clear from the onsite that he never had a chance of winning and that was before his power started to fail him. In the anime, Freeza got several good hits in and gave Goku the fight of his life (although he still had no real chance of winning) before his stamina gave and was reduced to a non-threat by the end of the battle.

** Most of the Gym Leaders. In the games and anime, their job is to, well, [[{{Jobber}} job]] to the main characters. In this manga, they're so strong that it's generally accepted that only an extreme BadAss can beat them all[[note]] In this 'verse, you don't need any badges to actually compete in the League, but having all 8 badges mean you can skip the preliminaries. This incentive guarantees plenty of challengers[[/note]]. Furthermore, being a Gym Leader also means that your side job is to protect your region from things such as, you know, various terrorist groups. So yeah, expect to see a lot more ass-whooping coming from these guys.
** In the games, Delibird's are one of the weakest Pokémon stat-wise, and are considered a joke to be used in competitive battle. The BigBad of the Gold, Silver, and Crystal arc uses one as his main Pokémon, being so well trained it can hold it's own against '''Ho-Oh''', a Pokémon which is not only far superior stat-wise, but additionally has a [[ElementalRockPaperScissors super effective typing]] against Delibird!

* The title character of ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha''. She was originally conceived as the TokenMiniMoe of ''VisualNovel/TriangleHeart3SweetSongsForever'' whose only role was to be the cute and innocent little sister of main protagonist Kyouya. Even in the mini-scenario where she became a MagicalGirl, she was more adorable than threatening with her heart-shaped wand with little wings. Then when TheAnimeOfTheGame came, Nanoha's wand was replaced with a SwissArmyWeapon WaveMotionGun as she was re-imagined into a LittleMissBadass savior of TheMultiverse who have been called a "(White) Devil" by foes and fans alike due to her ferocity and destructive powers which she does not hesitate to use on even her friends. [[DefeatMeansFriendship Befriending]], you know? The movie adaptations make her even more badass! In her first movie battle, she obliterate three monsters down at once with one attack. (she didn't learn ''Divine Buster'' until episode 3). Her ''Starlight Breaker'' can nuke a city now and her ''A.C.S. Driver'' can smash Reinforce through several skyscraper sized rocks!

* Several characters who suffer from a bad case of WhatMeasureIsANonBadass in the ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' manga finally get to catch a break in the anime. By far the most glaring example is Hinata, who got to learn a powerful technique the anime team just made up for her, defeat menacing {{Filler Villain}}s on her own and actually land a hit during what was in the manga a CurbStompBattle.
