* Rarity is slowly heading in this direction within the [[FanFic/TriptychContinuum Triptych Continuum]], and it comes from recognizing her own limitations. She has strictly average [[InsistentTerminology field]] strength, knows ''no'' spells for direct offense or defense, her physical abilities are nothing special -- and she's been placed in a position where she regularly has to risk her life in direct combat. So how is she dealing with this? [[CombatPragmatist Through becoming the single dirtiest fighter anypony's ever seen.]] Take a telekinetic with exceptionally fine directional control who regularly carries sewing needles with her, then pray she doesn't have a straight shot at your eyes. And in physical combat, she'll go for joints, sensory organs, vulnerable spots, and everything else offered without caring about dignity or the pain of the other party, because all that pales in significance to her goal of coming out alive. Compared to the others, she may not bring much to bear -- but what she does have is targeted with terrifying efficiency.

* Do you hate how Myotismon Digivolves into Malomyotismon in ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' and is built up into a major threat only to be dealt with in the [[AntiClimax most pathetic]] way possible by TalkingTheMonsterToDeath? Well, ''FanFic/Zero2ARevision'' builds him up into a major threat thanks to all of his schemes and planning. His power is so great that even the TimeMaster Xeedmilleniummon and the [[PhysicalGod Guardian Beasts]] will fall before him. To defeat him, the Digidestined and their Digimons fused together and after a long battle, in the end managed to defeat him.

** In canon Konan got caught by Jiraiya, acted as support during Pain’s attack on Konoha, and got killed by Tobi. Here she demonstrates exactly why she’s TheDragon.

* While Taylor Hebert was already badass in ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', she ups her badassery by several orders of magnitude in ''Fanfic/TheLastDaughter'', where she is actually [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Kryptonian]]. Virtually every fight she's in is a CurbStompBattle in her favor, and she actually manages [[spoiler: to kill [[TheJuggernaut ''Behemoth'']].]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/{{Evangelion 303}}'': Several characters are more badass than their canon counterparts:
** Shinji is an adult, seasoned soldier in contrast to his untrained teen pilot canon self.
** Touji, Hikari and Kensuke are jet fighter pilots rather than average teenagers.

* While [[Franchise/AceAttorney Shelly De Killer]] was always a skilled assassin, his combat skills get a huge boost in [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10849348/1/No-More-Turnabout No More Turnabout]], being able to hold his own against the likes of [[VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes Henry Cooldown and later on, Travis Touchdown]], nearly killing the latter had Sylvia not intervened.

* ''Fanfic/{{Quicken}}'': In the original story, Emma was a powerless, cowardly girl. Here she’s a regenerator super-human capable of detecting other super-humans and stealing their powers and memories after killing them, and prone to go berserker.

** Pretty much all the characters over the age of about sixteen or so get a significant competence boost. They aren't any more powerful, but they use what they have ''much'' more effectively because they employ proper tactics, especially Precia. The Wolkenritter in particular have received a major upgrade in skill, showing the experience and tactical acumen that would be expected of centuries old combat constructs.

** Pretty much all the characters over the age of about sixteen or so get a significant competence boost. They aren't any more powerful, powerful[[note]]At least at first. During the sequel, it's shown that Alicia far greater magical power and understanding than her canon counterpart did, on account of her revival being accomplished by essentially merging her with a Jewel Seed. And when Raising Heart and Bardiche get damaged fighting the Wolkenritter, Alicia upgrades them with ''[[ArtifactOfDoom Jewel Seeds]]'' instead of the cartridge system, giving Nanoha and Fate access to potentially similar boosts...though she restricts the amount of the Seeds' power that can be accessed as a safety measure.[[/note]], but they use what they have ''much'' more effectively because they employ proper tactics, especially Precia.Precia (since the entire premise of the story is that she's only ''slightly'' insane instead of full-blown bonkers). The Wolkenritter in particular have received a major upgrade in skill, showing the experience and tactical acumen that would be expected of centuries old combat constructs.

* Cirno, another canonically weak boss who is a [[EnsembleDarkhorse fan favorite]] due to AwesomeEgo, also gets this treatment quite often whenever she's not the MemeticLoser instead. [[http://i571.photobucket.com/albums/ss151/SuperFush/badasscirno.jpg Does this look like a stage 2 boss to you?]]

* ''FanFic/JusticeLeagueOfEquestria'': ComicBook/{{Deathstroke}} has always been a skilled fighter in TheDCU, but here he manages to get the drop on Rainbow Dash (this universe's equivalent to Franchise/{{Superman}}) in their first encounter, and then manages to almost defeat her again during their fight in Cloudsdale.
