** 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]].

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

** When Naruto is fighting Zabuza's apprentice, Haku, [[{{Jerkass}} Sasuke]] ends up getting beaten. As soon as his friend's life is threatened, Naruto's inner fox emerges and the previously useless Naruto kicks Haku's ass. In fact, most of the Naruto cast has this, to a greater or lesser extent.

** Jiraiya is pretty much ''Naruto'' 's answer to [[Franchise/DragonBall Master Roshi]], old, goofy, and so unabashedly perverted that Naruto refers to him exclusively as a "Pervy Sage" (he even writes his own erotica, the Icha-Icha series (a comedic exaggeration and chronicle of his past romances) which Kakashi is a fan of). However, there is a very good reason he is considered among the legendary "Sannin": he was among the three ninja who held their own against the dangerous Hanzo, and even though he didn't become a village leader like Tsunade and Orochimaru did, he did train a ninja that went on to become a Hokage. Furthermore, he seems to be the strongest of the three according to the last Databook published (having tied with Itachi with 35.5 out of 40). And the only reason he didn't lead a village is because he didn't ''want'' to. He handed the responsibility over to Tsunade instead.

** Goku can turn from kid who only thinks about food and fighting to a rampaging, unstoppable demon when his limiter is broken. Usually breaks if [[HoYay Sanzo is in trouble]]. Basically, he's [[GetBackers Ginji Amano]] but ReallySevenHundredYearsOld.

** Teletha Testarossa, a GeniusDitz teenage commander, despite usually being [[{{Dojikko}} clumsy and tripping over her own feet]], when her subordinates are put in danger, can even recapture a submarine from a freak terrorist group. Also, her claims about not be able to use guns, turn out to be false at these moments.

* ''Manga/{{Spiral}}'': Rio is a cutesy {{Dojikko}} who loves melons and cute things, but is [[FearOfThunder scared of thunder]]. Cross her, however, and she'll reveal her true self, as one of the 'Blade Children' - a ruthless, calculating murderess with a degree in {{Magnificent Bastard}}ry. Indeed, it initially seems like her CuteClumsyGirl personality is just ObfuscatingStupidity, but she still acts the same way when alone, or hanging around her fellow Blade Children...

* ''Manga/KobayashiSanChiNoMaidDragon'': 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.
