** 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 learns 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]]''.

** Kyurem is among the weaker legendary Pokémon, and is only really effective when transformed into Black/White Kyurem, which it can only achieve by fusing with Zekrom and Reshiram. In ''Anime/PokemonKyuremVSTheSwordOfJustice'', not only is Kyurem a dangerous and feared Pokémon by itself, but it can also transform without needing to absorb either of the two dragons.

** In the games, while Kyurem is among can be powerful on its own right, it pales compared to the weaker legendary Pokémon, and is only really effective when transformed into rest of the trio master. And it needs to fuse with Zekrom or Reshiram with a DNA Splicer to become Black/White Kyurem, which it can only achieve by fusing with Zekrom and Reshiram.Kyurem. In ''Anime/PokemonKyuremVSTheSwordOfJustice'', not only is Kyurem a dangerous and feared Pokémon by itself, but it can also transform without needing to absorb either of the two dragons.

** This trope is invoked for Yamcha in the Dragon Ball side manga, ''The Case of Being Reincarnated as Yamcha''. As the title suggests, the main character is an ordinary teenager who dies and gets reincarnated as Yamcha. Being well aware of [[MemeticLoser what happens to Yamcha]], he decides to train hard and change that.

Being well aware of [[MemeticLoser what happens to Yamcha]], he decides to train hard and change that. And he ''succeeds''. By the time the Saiyans arrive, his power level is over ''10,000'', letting him easily wipe out ''all'' the Saibamen singlehanded and defeat Nappa on his own. Even though he's not as strong as Vegeta, he's still powerful enough to team up with Goku to defeat him.

** Nanoha 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!

* In the Mitsuki Oosawa manga adaptation of ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem Seisen no Keifu]]'', WhiteMagicianGirl Deirdre moves ''quite'' closer to the Competence Zone. Especially when she [[spoiler: takes King Clement's castle with only back up from Raquesis and Aya, ''without killing anyone'' and relaying in trickery and magic than brute force]], 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 (plus she may have been captured but ''succeeds in protecting the castle and everyone else in it'')]]; and the rendition of [[spoiler: her own death, where she had ''already'' guessed that Julius would go EnfanteTerrible on her so she sends Julia away earlier and protects Arvis from Julius.]]

** ''Lillie''. In [[VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon her home game]], she's an ActualPacifist who hates Pokemon fighting and is only inspired to become a trainer because of how brave and strong the PlayerCharacter is. In the anime, she has a fear of Pokemon, but overcomes it and gets her first Pokemon, the Alolan Vulpix, who easily defeats Team Rocket.

** Subverted in ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaINNOCENT''. Nanoha starts off far more powerful than [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent her main series counterpart did]] since she actually has swordsmanship training, but the lack of magic in that continuity means that she is weaker in the long run.

** 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. 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]].

** Ash's Pikachu is extremely powerful, well beyond any average Pikachu (a fact that is pointed out early in the series). It can even knock out ground-type Pokémon when in the games ground-types are immune to electric attacks.
** The iconic red-and-white Pokeball. In the games they're only really used very early into the game as they have a low catch rate. They're mostly only useful for very low-level Pokemon and even then it's not unheard of an under level 10 Pokemon to break out the Pokeball if their [=HP=] isn't down enough. In the anime 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 Pokemon not being caught in a basic Pokeball.

** The legendary birds in the games aren't said to be anything more than very rare and exceptionally powerful bird Pokémon. ''Anime/Pokemon2000'' makes them {{Physical God}}s whose very existence controls the weather and are more than capable of ending it entirely. The three of them are even a match for Lugia, who's meant to quell their fighting.
** Genesect isn't a slow Pokémon in the games by any means, but the Red Genesect in ''Anime/PokemonGenesectAndTheLegendAwakened'' [[RedOnesGoFaster is able to fly at incredible speeds]] that only Mega Mewtwo Y can match.
** Greninja is already among the most powerful starter Pokémon (especially if it has [[ConfusionFu Protean]]), but Ash's Greninja outright gets a SuperMode exclusive to it that makes it even more powerful.
** Kyurem is among the weaker legendary Pokémon, and is only really effective when transformed into Black/White Kyurem, which it can only achieve by fusing with Zekrom and Reshiram. In ''Anime/PokemonKyuremVSTheSwordOfJustice'', not only is Kyurem a dangerous and feared Pokémon by itself, but it can also transform without needing to absorb either of the two dragons.

* ''Anime/FateStayNightUnlimitedBladeWorks'' does this to Berserker. In the original ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', he fights like, well, a mindless berserker. In Unlimited Blade Works, he demonstrates swordsmanship skill and awareness of his surroundings, like when Saber traps his sword and attempts to decapitate him, only for him to let go of his sword and backflip out of the way.
