** Also, Patamon in both ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' and 02. He's a completly childish Digimon half of the time. But when he digivolves into Angemon, he can be strong enough to destroy Devimon and give Myotismon a run for his money.

* ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'': Elma is a harmony dragon who is often clueless, easily tricked, bribe-able with snack food, and stranded on Earth. However, she's also noted to be Tohru's equal. The relevant power level of this aspect isn't shown until Iruru and Cremene appear and show how Tohru (and by extension, Elma) eclipse other dragons in might. Hell, even arrogant jerk Cremene refers to her as Elma-sama, showing her status among harmony dragons.

** Pound. A joke character who seemed woefully outclassed and out of place in the superhuman kingdom of Totland. And he is. Doesn't stop him from [[spoiler:pulling a HeroicSacrifice to allow his daughter Chiffon to escape from Oven]], despite Chiffon [[TearJerker not even knowing who he is.]]

** Bartolomeo is a hyperactive fanboy of the Straw Hats and more than a bit strange. He also cries a lot. But his Barrier-Barrier Fruit allows him to create literally indestructible barriers that he can contort into any form he wants, up to and including boxing gloves to go with his own considerable physical strength.

And let's not forget that he started off as a mafia boss.

** Isshiki Satoshi. Shameless nudist, laid-back goof, perpetual smiler and completely incapable of taking anything seriously for mor than five minutes. However, underneath the surface lies a deeply passionate man who, when roused into action, is a complete terror made even moreso by his perfect control over his own emotions.

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': The titular character. He may act like an idiot most of the time but God help you if you [[BerserkButton touch his Gundam...]] Or if his surrounding air is hydrated as strong as on his home planet, which is how he got to be General in the first place: heartlessness and efficient. But then the Nyoro creatures come from the sky to [[NotWhatItSoundsLike suck him dry]], [[StatusQuoIsGod cancelling out his effectiveness]].

** But an even better example is in Gotenks, the fusion of Trunks and Goten. While he gains both of their powers combined, he also happens to gain only (and I mean ONLY) their worst characteristics: Trunks' rebellion and mischievous personality, and Goten's childish and stubborn personality. Immediately after their first correct fusion, they rush off to face Majin Buu despite having never trained, so needless to say, they got their asses handed to them. Next, they fuse as Super Saiyans and Gotenks spends so much time showing off that his fusion wears off just as he's about to battle. Throughout his battle with Super Buu, the latter intentionally humiliates the boy at every turn, pretending to take effect only to quickly recover, and even taking out a soda at one point. All of Gotenks' techniques are designed solely to be flashy, and while a couple are by coincidence also legitimately dangerous most are just a complete waste of time. It isn't until Gotenks[[spoiler: [[TheReveal reveals he can go SSJ3]] and]] finds out Buu [[spoiler: killed both his mothers]] when Gotenks officially loses it and kicks some ass. [[spoiler: Too bad the fusion wears off soon afterward]].

** Naruto just tends to be this at any time. He will be obsessed with ramen and will pull off stupid moves like a comic-relief, and he's still a ''genin''. However, if you threaten '''''anyone''''' he cares about, he will show you why he is one of the most powerful ninjas in existence.



** Rock Lee is a total idiot outside a fight, but can take on the "Sharingan Prodigy" (Sasuke), a Jinchuriki, and one of Orochimaru's most loyal and more powerful subordinates, even if he won against one of them, however he gave them runs for their money, he was just suffering the WorfEffect. His teacher, Might Guy, is a grown-up version of Lee who is one of Konoha's best shinobi, [[spoiler: and currently, the only one of the Konoha 12's Jounin-instructors not to have lost a fight, having KilledOffForReal one of the world's most powerful S-Rank missing-nin ''by himself''.]] Unlike Kakashi, this doesn't fall under ObfuscatingStupidity, because Guy really ''is'' a total goofball when it comes to anything except combat.

teacher, Might Guy, is more or less [[GenerationXerox a grown-up version of Lee Lee]] who tends to not be taken seriously due to his over-the-top theatrics. However, he is one of Konoha's best shinobi, [[spoiler: and currently, the only one of the Konoha 12's Jounin-instructors not to have lost a fight, having KilledOffForReal Kisame, one of the world's most powerful S-Rank missing-nin ''by himself''.]] himself'', as well as completely overpowered and ''nearly killed'' [[VillainSue Madara Uchiha]][[note]]It's worth noting that neither the Shinobi Alliance, the 5 Kage, the Tailed Beasts, nor Naruto and Sasuke could damage Madara as badly as Guy did. Even then, unlike these others, Madara had the Juubi in him when combatting Guy, making what Guy did that much more impressive.[[/note]].

** Might Guy, with his over-the-top theatrics, tends to be not taken seriously, but when he gets serious, he is one of the strongest fighters in the series, and even impressed the BigBad [[spoiler: Uchiha Madara]]. Who earlier in the same day was completely unimpressed by [[spoiler:all five Kages fighting him simultaneously]].

** A lot of other powerful heroes look pretty goofy but are worthy of their class and ranking. For example Watchdog Man, a man in a dog suit who acts like a dog. Despite his laziness and terrible manners he's absurdly fast and strong and killed entire piles of monsters. Fellow S-Rank hero Puri-puri Prisoner is a CampGay hero with a harem of criminals. Despite this he still has a strong feeling of justice and is more down to earth than the rest of the S-rank heroes, who tend to be more self-absorbed.
