* ''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.

* The FightingGame ''VideoGame/PhantomBreaker'' and its spin-off BeatEmUp called ''Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds'' have TeenGenius Kurisu Makise from ''VisualNovel/SteinsGate''; Kurisu is the only normal human but she's able to fight and keep up with supernatural opponents using nothing but lab gadgets, and a fighting style based on [[KickChick kicks]]. She's also one of the two characters who have two supers.

** The two Supersonic Warriors games do this to almost every character in their story modes. It goes anywhere from small examples, like Cell becoming strong enough to beat Super Saiyan 2 Gohan with ease before going on to obliterate Majin Buu, to CantCatchUp OutOfFocus characters that completely lost relevance as early as the Frieza Saga like even [[MemeticLoser KRILLIN]] becoming powerful enough to go toe to toe with Majin Buu and even win on their own.

* ''VideoGame/MinecraftStoryMode'': The Command Block is depicted as an extremely powerful artifact with properties that can greatly empower a Wither. ''Minecraft'' proper's use for them is to generally for scripting or convenience purposes in non-Creative Mode modes.

* ''VideoGame/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesTournamneFighters'':
** Compared to his canon portrayal in the original cartoon (a scrawny filthy guy who lives in the sewers talking to rats) the Rat King is the FinalBoss of tournament mode [[spoiler:(Karai is the Final Boss of the storyline mode)]] He has added some pro wrestling moves to his moveset, and looks like he's done more steroids than Batista.
** April O'Neil too (Genesis version only), being a playable character and a full-fledged ActionGirl in the game, as opposed to the DesignatedVictim she usually is. (Probably due to the need to include a female hero character.)

* For twenty years, Garland in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' was known for two things: his famous declaration that he "[[MemeticMutation will knock you all down!]]" and being the first boss in the series. Then ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' was released. Now Garland is a [[BoisterousBruiser Boisterous]] BloodKnight with a [[MorphWeapon transforming]] {{BFS}} bigger than ''entire characters'', his [[LargeHam hamminess]] was [[EvilIsHammy ramped up]], and he got a few shades of DeadpanSnarker. His archrival, Warrior of Light, went from being a FeaturelessProtagonist to being a [[TheFettered Fettered]] [[TheCape Cape]], a paragon for light and goodness that [[{{Determinator}} refuses to give up]] no matter the odds. And the BigBad of the original game, Chaos? He's raised up from a generic demon to a PhysicalGod that is able to call upon the other ''Final Fantasy'' villains to serve him, effectively making him the GreaterContextVillain of the entire series. [[SNKBoss And just wait]] [[CurbStompBattle until you see him fight]]...

* Due to its crossover nature, many a party member in ''VideoGame/RakenzarnTales'' ends up being much tougher. For example, [[VideoGame/DragonsLair Dirk the Daring]] was already badass, but here he can take more than one hit before dying. WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy are surprisingly viable combat choices. The normally goofy [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Derpy Hooves]] can fight on the front lines as well as anyone else. And [[Manga/DetectiveSchoolQ Kyuu]] is poised to become the most powerful party member in the game with proper training.

* Even Ryu of ''VideoGame/StreetFighter'', who is ''never'' by any means a wimp, gets this treatment in the ''VideoGame/CapcomVsWhatever'' series. In ''Street Fighter'', all variations of his [[KamehameHadoken Hadoken]] are only {{Energy Ball}}s[=/=]{{Fireball}}s, whereas in the ''Capcom vs.'' series, the higher-grade Shinku Hadoken becomes a [[Manga/DragonBall Kamehameha Wave]]-like WaveMotionGun.

* The DoujinSoft FightingGame ''VideoGame/EternalFighterZero'' features characters from diverse Visual Novels by KeyVisualArts, such as ''[[VisualNovel/OneKagayakuKisetsuE ONE]]'', ''VisualNovel/{{Kanon}}'', ''Moon'' and ''VisualNovel/{{AIR}}''. These stories hardly have anything to do with combat, and despite that, in ''EFZ'' they were all given amazing powers and fun fighting styles, referencing aspects from the novels themselves, as well as other fighting games, such as ''StreetFighter'', ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' or ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear''.

* ''VideoGame/CallOfCthulhuDarkCornersOfTheEarth'' does this to the main character. In the original story ''Literature/TheShadowOverInnsmouth'' the main character visits Innsmouth on a whim and is chased out of town before passing out from terror upon seeing a Deep One. His involvement with Innsmouth ends there as the authorities take over. In the game, that's only the end of the first half of the game, with the second half seeing him return to Innsmouth with Hoover, the FBI, and the U.S. Marine Corps and personally destroying the Marsh family and the Deep Ones.
