** Donald goes from a short tempered household name to a Badass Abnormal, Goofy is a Badass Normal who fight just as well as the characters WITH magic. Minnie may also count but we only get so little out of that escort mission in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII''.

Added DiffLines:

* The titular character of ''VideoGame/{{Guenevere}}'' can be upgraded from her traditional DamselInDistress characterization from the [[KingArthur original legends]] to a ActionGirl swordmaster, a LadyOfBlackMagic, or TheStrategist of her husband's army.

** Also from ''VideoGame/EpicMickey'', there's the [[BigBad Phantom Blot]], a minor (though admittedly effective) criminal mastermind from the comics and a few [[WesternAnimation/DuckTales cartoon]] [[HouseofMouse appearences]], who becomes a [[EldritchAbomination horrific monstrosity]].

* ''VideoGame/StarWarsBattlefront2015'':
** Greedo, who's best known for being an overconfident punk that Han Solo dispatched with ease, is capable of keeping up with the likes of Boba Fett here. In the hands of a skilled player, he can even rack up quite an impressive body count.
** The Red Five, Luke's ship from ''A New Hope'', comes with firepower, speed and armor far exceeding that of a normal X-Wing along with the ability to significantly repair itself mid-flight and an invulnerable (if temporary) shield. In the films, the Red Five was completely ordinary, it was Luke's piloting that accomplished so much.

* Taizo Hori, hero of the original ''VideoGame/DigDug'', and member of the ''VideoGame/MrDriller'' cast, pictured on the main page in his appearance in ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom''. Besides changing his look to one that's more realistic and rugged, the game also altered his background so that he's a former soldier in addition to being a digger [[VideoGame/MegamanLegends of many kinds]]. Actually, ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom'' has a lot of this.
** Ditto for Hudson's ''VideoGame/{{Bomberman}}'' and ''VideoGame/LodeRunner''. Although you'll never see Lode Runner's new look without playing the cell phone version of this game. And, after all, new Lode Runner will look [[JustAKid like a kid.]] Yeah...
** Sierra, on the other hand, made him look like a more matured adventurer.

** It's also implied that the same Fire Warrior would eventually grow into [[ColonelBadass Shas'O Kais]], the leader of the Tau forces in ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar''.

Added DiffLines:

** Virtually ''every'' character counts; except for some jokes that can't do anything (like the Gonk Droid and Han Solo In Carbonite) is an example because ''everyone'' is playable so ''everyone'' needs to be capable of fighting, even if they didn't do much in the original story...[[GameplayAndStorySegregation or in the cutscenes of the game itself]]! So you can have [[Film/LordOfTheRings Sam]] taking out hordes of orcs [[FryingPanOfDoom with a frying pan]].

** [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsJudgment The Granteed]] mech itself in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration The Moon Dwellers''. Granteed, at best, was a GameBreaker in its original incarnation thanks to the gameplay but it was just another mech the Fury have made. Come ''The Moon Dwellers'' and it now houses the soul of the Fury's guardian god, and as the Granteed Dracodeus, it supposedly has the power to take on [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsD Perfectio]], a being who can't even be killed as it is the incarnation of despair itself. Finally, ''The Moon Dwellers'' ends with the [[MidSeasonUpgrade Granteed Dracodeus]] [[spoiler: destroying the indestructible [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Cross]] [[VideoGame/EndlessFrontier Gate]].]] Fans now see the machine as one of the most powerful machines of the entire series.

* ''Super DragonBallZ'' had a small cast of characters compared to the likes of ''VideoGame/DragonBallZBudokai'' or ''VideoGame/DragonBallZBudokaiTenkaichi'', but one character playable only in ''Super'' in particular stands out: Goku's wife, [[UnexpectedCharacter Chichi]]. In the original manga and anime, she hardly does any fighting after becoming a mother, and yet here she is, Power Pole and Bansho Fan in hand, throwing down with the likes of Frieza, Cell, and Majin Buu.
