* ''GateKeepers'': That woman whose only job is to provide fanservice. Then she pulls out her bazooka in the final episode. * ''GetBackers'': Amano Ginji is normally childish and goofy, and even when fighting can usually enjoy himself...unless the fight becomes a true challenge. Then he goes into "Raitei" mode, and proceeds to show everyone just how he got to be the leader of the most powerful street gang in the Limitless Fortress, and why people nicknamed "Beastmaster" and "The Prince of Battle Terror" would take orders from him.

* ''HadesProjectZeorymer'': The main character Masato is mostly just an angsty teenage boy, who's still trying to wrap his head around how he went from being an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent to piloting a HumongousMecha. He doesn't want to hurt anybody, not even his enemies -- after all, they're still ''people'' -- and he DEFINITELY doesn't want any innocent bystanders getting hurt. However, when he's actually ''attacked''...he starts grinning like a loon, wielding his mecha like it's an extension of his body, trouncing the opposition without mercy, ignoring "Collateral Damage" completely, and just generally ''enjoying'' being the pilot of a walking WMD. -->'''Miku:''' Masato, we have to lead them towards the forest! Too many civilians are getting hurt!\\ '''Masato:''' To hell with them! Let THEM worry about the civvies and trip themselves up! * ''HajimeNoIppo'': Ippo Makunouchi is a shy, awkward, overly-polite mama's boy...but once he steps into the boxing-ring, he becomes an intense and unstoppable fighter with a Dynamite Punch that can shatter bones, and an invincible stamina that allows him to keep coming back no matter how many times he's knocked down. It's not uncommon for people who've seen him in the ring, to completely fail to recognize him outside of it. Several times, this has worked to his advantage, since any opponent who've met him outside the ring is bound to underestimate the level of brutality he can unleash inside of it.

* ''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]].

* {{Kinnikuman}}: The titular character and his son, [[KinnikumanNisei Kinniku Mantaro]], are both prime examples of this type of hero.

* In ''PeacemakerKurogane'', it's easy to forget that the Comedian Trio, the girly looking boy carrying a pig and the creepy psychic are five of the ruthless Shinsengumi captains who could kill you in a blink of an eye.

* ''SorcererHunters'': Carrot Glace is a scruffy, scrawny, lazy, largely single-minded LovableSexManiac...who just happens to be not only basically immune to magic, but absorbs it to power his InvoluntaryShapeshifting into [[OneWingedAngel various monster forms]].

* ''TransformersVictory'': A mild example is Holi. In the first few episodes, he's portrayed as naive and childlike, but when the rest of the Rescue Patrol Team arrives, he turns out to be a very competent commander in his own right.

* ''VirtuaFighter'': The anime version of Akira Yuki is an IdiotHero who [[BigEater can't stop eating.]] Whenever the situation is going out of control, though, [[TransformationSequence he equips his gi]] and turns himself into a serious fighter until his enemies are defeated, sometimes so far that it reflects his original persona in the game.

* ''SoulEaterNot'': Meme is introduced as a typical big-breasted [[TheDitz ditz]] character. Then we find out that she can beat people up ''in her sleep.''

* ''TrinityBlood'': Abel Nightroad (Crusnik 02) may be a perfect example of this trope. It's hard to tell if its [[ObfuscatingStupidity just an act]] or not.

** America in the movie fight scene-the man has skills. In the main series, he is known for being an oblivious jstice-obsessed LargeHam with LeeroyJenkins tendencies, who can also drag a car after himself for hours without breaking a sweat just to ask said car's owner, England, whether he can borrow the car for a ride. One of the earliest experiences England had with America as a kid included the boy (who looked like he was at most 6 years old) lifting a buffalloo and spinning it around like it was a ragdoll.

** Also, Chuck is the TeamPet seemingly only capable of [[PokemonSpeak saying his name repeatedly]] and getting crushed to a pulp every episode. Not only does he pull off CarFu once in a while, [[spoiler:in the final episode it's shown that he can go OneWingedAngel on command to turn into a monstrous Hellhound.]]

** ''Mako Mankanshoku.'' How ditzy is this girl? She's [[HeavySleeper fast asleep]] (SnotBubble included) in her first appearance, she shifts into different poses ([[ItMakesSenseInContext and even into a]] [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Xenomorph]]) during her [[MostWonderfulSound Hallelujah!!]] expositions, and many characters have noted that [[GoodIsDumb she doesn't have much going on in that bubble she calls a head.]] However, she has the uncanny ability to jump head-first into situation that are totally over her head, and come out on top. This includes [[spoiler: intervening fights between Ryuko, Staskui, and ''[[CuteAndPsycho Nui Harime]]'', [[TheDeterminator going trough a booby-trapped death course to so so she wouldn't get expelled]], [[BigEater and eating all of the delicious food in Osaka]], who was in the middle of a city-wide raid!]] And this isn't even mentioning the fact that she's THE [[spoiler: president of the Fight Club and wearer of the corresponding Goku uniform.]] You know how Ryuko can '''''[[FinishingMove SEN-I- SOSHITSU!]]''''' club presidents with little effort? Yeah not this one. [[spoiler: Mako is the only club president who can go toe-to-toe with the Kamui. And she nearly WON.]]

** It is also stated that Gourry has the potential to be an extremely powerful sorcerer, with a power rivaling Lina's... if only he could memorize the spells.
