* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' has this a lot. Bar the characters who have the titual bloodlines, a wide variety of characters are much more impressive than their canon selves: The Team Rocket Trio can actually steal Pokemon, Georgia is a militarily trained Dragon Buster whose job it is to arrest gym leaders and elite four members, Ash's Pokemon evolve earlier and have new, more powerful moves they lacked in canon like Aerial Ace, Brine, and Zap Cannon, and Mabel from the XY anime went from granny to Lumiose Conference winning granny. Badassery isn't even just in physical power: Erika is shown to have sizeable monetary and political power she has never been shown to have in other canons.

* In the fanfic [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12126095/1/Recursion Recursion]], the normal FinalBoss of the Genocide run, [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Sans]], is actually one of the first bosses [[SympatheticMurderer Frisk]] has to fight. The character that takes his place as the last and most difficult challenge before Asgore? It's ''[[TheQuietOne Napstablook]]'', who, after hearing about both of his cousins Mettaton and Furlablook dying, decides to fight... and gives Frisk a battle that arguably puts Sans to shame.

--> '''Chara:''' (After seeing Napstablook's opening attack) ''"[[StunnedSilence I, uh... wow]]. I knew Napstablook before. [[BewareTheQuietOnes Didn't know they... uh, had it in them.]]"''
--> '''Frisk:''' "[[ThisIsGonnaSuck This is going to be Sans all over again, isn't it]]?"
** For starters, Napstablook's ''opening move'' is to transport Frisk into the space that you see during your time in his house... a massive ''intergalactic space'' not connected to Earth, [[StatingTheSimpleSolution where they decide to leave Frisk at first to die of starvation and/or thirst]]. When Frisk gets them to start fighting, however, Napstablook brings out a massive mix of mechanics from his fight, Sans's, and Mettaton's to give [[WellIntentionedExtremist Frisk]] [[ItMakesSenseInContext and Chara]] a ''very'' bad time...
** When the fight begins, Napstablook uses his own version of the Gaster Blasters: magical speakers that blast out sound waves.
** When Frisk manages to survive that, there are mini-Napstablooks akin to the mini-Mettaton's found in the battle with Mettaton EX (which, due to Frisk lacking a yellow soul, can't be targeted and destroyed) that fire musical notes and attack in tandem.
** Napstablook also has the "not really feeling up to it right now" words from his Pacifist fight. Which they use to sucker-punch Frisk when he tries to catch his breath by rushing him with acid tears.
** To top this, there's a "copy" mechanic that saves the positions of Napstablook's attack's at a certain time... which he combines afterwards with a ''paste'' mechanic. As in, ''[[OhCrap pasting the attacks he had when he copied onto the field in addition to the attacks already taking place.]]''
** After a while, Napstablook unveils a unique soul-affecting mechanic; a "soul tether", that makes Frisk to stay within a certain area or be yanked back into it forcibly, which they can also use to ''drag Frisk into the paths of their attacks.'' Later on, it turns out that they can tie Frisk to ''two'' different soul tethers, restricting his field of movement even further.
** And the two scariest parts about all this? First, Napstablook is a ghost, and can't be hurt without magic, [[NoSell which Frisk doesn't have]], meaning Frisk has to find a way to demotivate Napstablook enough to get them to leave. And second, Napstablook admits during the battle that they're out of practice. [[spoiler:And then it turns out the fight has a '''TimeLimit'''; when they decide that they've warmed up enough, Napstablook makes '''four''' soul tethers, forcibly anchors Frisk down with them, and blasts him with speakers until he dies]].

* Cackletta wasn't really much of a threat in ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga'', being an unimpressive mage with an easy boss fight halfway through her game. In ''Fanfic/ClashOfTheElements'', on the other hand, she's a ManipulativeBastard of the highest degree, a [[spoiler:two-thousand year old remnant of the Dark King's forces who caused the legend of the [[PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor Shadow Queen]] just to extend her own life]], and a [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] who successfully managed to outwit {{Big Good}}s. Implications exist to suggest she has also been able to control [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts the Heartless]].

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9305815/1/The-Merry-Killers The Merry Killers]]'' every girl at the Hinata Sou from Haruka to Shinobu is a skilled assassin. Even Kitsune, who specializes in organizing and managing their hits, manages to hold her own against [[Manga/Golgo13 Golgo]]. While Keitaro isn't an assassin or even really a fighter, he's still NighInvulnerable, even shrugging off JumpingOnAGrenade and being annoyed at most upon being hit by a sniper round.

* [[ZigZaggingTrope Zig-zagged]] in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11725053/1/The-Bald-and-The-Esper The Bald and the Esper]]'' as Tatsumaki starts off weaker than canon but with far more varied skills (using her telekinesis to create bombs, laser blades, and more) then starts training under Saitama. By the Sea Folk Arc, she's learned how to turn someone's energy against them. While against Saitama, it only nudges his fingers, against a monster, it spins them with so much force they rip apart.

* Cadence in canon, while admittedly having some badass moments, is still mainly a supporting character. On the other hand, Cadence from the FanFic/BloomingMoonChronicles has wanted to be a soldier ever since she was young, rather than sit back and be a princess. Over the course of the series, she eventually grows more proficient at fighting, being able to utilize both weapons and magic to her advantage. She becomes part of the Orphans, an elite fighting force that keeps [[TheMultiverse the worlds]] safe from threats. At one point, she takes on [[spoiler: [[BigBad Loki]] himself]], and is capable of going head-to-head with some of his strongest forces.

* Everyone in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5390962/1/AU-A-Saiyan-Warrior AU: A Saiyan Warrior]]'' ends up stronger as a result of Bardock leaving a message in Kakarot's pod before he's sent to Earth. By the time Raditz arrives on Earth, Kakarot is roughly ten times as strong as Goku was in canon. Special mention goes to Krillin as he, not Kakarot, receives training under King Kai and thus becomes one of the Z Fighter's heavy hitters.
