** His brother Luigi is a bumbling coward and often the ButtMonkey of the series, so that must mean he's a pushover, right? Wrong. When in a real fight he's every bit as competent as his big bro, and if you go after [[LuigisMansion Mario]] or [[NewSuperLuigiU Peach]] he will kick your ass just as hard. [[VideoGame/MarioIsMissing Not]] to [[VideoGame/LuigisMansion mention]] he's [[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga saved]] his [[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory brother]] several [[VideoGame/LuigisMansionDarkMoon times]] and, in ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'', [[spoiler:is the cornerstone of a prophecy about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.]]

* Katze Kotolnos from ''VideoGame/EndlessFrontier'' is a CampGay cat person who is constantly making passes at protagonist Haken Browning. Then there comes a point where you have to fight him and he proceeds to kick your ass with his hands in his pockets. When you first fight him, he fights alongside Ezel, who you've been chasing for a while, and who wears an intimidating skull helmet and looks like a total BadAss. ''Katze'' is the more dangerous of the two.

* Gumpy from ''VideoGame/JaggedAlliance''. He's one of the squad's explosives experts. He's also unfortunately an overweight, unattractive dork who cracks outdated pop-culture references with a speech impediment and nasty allergies, and as you'd expect, he can't fight for shit. However, if you and your {{Badass}} mercenaries can keep him alive for long enough, his high Wisdom score and aptitude for learning ensure he will eventually become just as {{Badass}} and competent as the rest of the mercs.

* Bang Shishigami of ''VideoGame/{{Blazblue}}'' is treated as an imbecile by most of the cast, and indeed his ham-fisted attempts at heroics are usually caused by him misjudging situations and people. Heck, he once picked a fight with [[FaceOfAThug Tager]] because, in his own words, ''Tager looked like the kind of guy who would do something evil one day''. He's also pretty much the weakest person in-universe, with even Carl Clover being more powerful than him. However, he has this amazing ability to get serious when he needs to. In the first game, he fought [[WorldsStrongestMan Hakumen]] to the point where Hakumen called him a WorthyOpponent. In the second game, he pulled a BigDamnHeroes against the uber-powerful BigBad and held his own long enough to pull two kids to safety. In the third game, he fought [[TheDreaded Azrael]] and Azrael longed for the chance to spar with him again; as a point of reference, Azrael [[CurbStompBattle soundly defeated]] [[{{Badass}} Jin]] and called him ''boring''.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaPhantomHourglass Phantom Hourglass]]'': Link probably qualifies. Tropers have already come to a consensus that he's all kinds of {{Badass}}-- [[BadassAdorable adorable]], [[BadassNormal normal]] and {{empowered|BadassNormal}} among them-- but he also happens to be, quite possibly, the most laid-back of his ilk, hero-wise. The beginning of Wind Waker also makes him the designated ButtMonkey. This culminates in a [[{{Keet}} sweet, goofy]] protagonist who [[BerserkButton will rip you limb from limb]] [[KnightTemplarBigBrother if you even look at his sister the wrong way]].

* [[FakeUltimateHero Johnny]] [[TheFightingNarcissist Cage]] since VideoGame/MortalKombat9. The guy looks and sounds like a parody of a self-absorbed action movie star and spends a good portion of his chapter in ''9'' making an ass of himself and being an [[CasanovaWannabe insufferable flirt]] towards Sonya Blade. And yet he manages to survive the plot which sees a massive death toll among the heroes, and his ending reveals that he has the potential to be staggeringly powerful due to his lineage tracing back to Mediterranean warriors bred for the gods. His role in the sequel? Unlocking said power for a [[spoiler: beatdown on ''Shinnok'', the resident SatanicArchetype of [=MK=], and becoming the new Champion of Earthrealm.]] And becoming a very effective CoolTeacher for the next generation of heroes who end up saving the day from the same villain, [[spoiler: now in his OneWingedAngel mode]].

* Karl Blaine in ''[[VideoGame/JustCause Just Cause 2]]''. Even before Rico meets him, he's established as the unreliable, comedy relief contact on the island nation who you have to rescue from a government sting. Later, Blaine's captured and successfully interrogated as years as a drunk in a tropical paradise have left him soft and out of practice as a spy. [[spoiler:Much later, during Rico's assault on the evil president's hideout, Blaine sneaks out of his cell BY HIMSELF, and gets past the [[InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja ninja guard]] to suicide bomb the President without any assistance from Rico.]] [[WhatTheHellHero This doesn't stop Rico from taunting him for giving into the torture, however.]]

* [[TheScrappy Say what you like]] about Steve Burnside from ''VideoGame/ResidentEvilCodeVeronica'': yeah he's an immature, obnoxious jerk who tends to cause more problems than he solves and looked just a ''little'' too much like Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio at the time for ''anyone's'' comfort[[note]]They actually changed his appearance in later editions of the game for that exact reason[[/note]]. He's also capable of shrugging off a gunshot wound to the arm, leaps and rolls around [[GunsAkimbo dual-wielding]] [[MoreDakka automatic firearms]] like a trained professional, able to fly an aircraft, damned brave to a fault, [[spoiler:and able to [[FightingFromTheInside resist the t-Veronica Virus]] long enough [[HeroicSacrifice to take one final blow for her]].]]

** There's also [[spoiler: Sans, Papyrus' brother who at first appears as a lazy bum that loves to [[LazyBum slack off]] and [[PungeonMaster crack jokes]]. However, should the player [[VillainProtagonist take the Genocide route]], Sans shows up as the FinalBoss and he is by far the hardest boss in the game. Even his Check description uses ExactWords to deceive you into believing that he is weak, saying that he only has 1 HP and can only deal 1 damage. This is true, but left unsaid is the fact that [[FragileSpeedster he can avoid any attack]] and that his attacks deal 1 damage ''per frame'', bypassing MercyInvincibility. '''And''' apply a lingering damage over time effect.]]

** In ''Blazblue'''s daddy, ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'', Axl Low. While he ''looks'' naive and goofy, he can hold his own against [[MusicalAssassin I-no]] and ''[[HumanoidAbomination Sol Badguy himself]]''. He's stated to be one of the few humans who were capable of using magic prior to its discovery, and has SuperReflexes which renders ''firearms'' ineffective against him. And he's just a perfectly nice, funny, easy-going British guy who's only tangled up in the plot at all because of involuntary time travel which keeps placing him in the GG-verse. ''Revelator'' tops it off [[spoiler:by revealing that ''he's actually a full-blown RealityWarper'' with TimeMaster powers]].

** He's not really a horrible fighter. Much like [[DragonBallZ Hercule]], [[BadassNormal he's actually miles above most fighters in the world]], it's just that [[OvershadowedByAwesome the rest of the SF cast is miles above HIM]].

** ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors'' had Agitha the self-proclaimed Insect Princess. [[AndCallHimGeorge Yes, she treats insects like royal subjects.]] [[SkewedPriorities Yes, she wanders across war-torn landscapes looking for bugs.]] [[CloudCuckooLander Yes, she's slightly out of touch with reality.]] But in no way are you to try and think that she is harmless. Try and attack her, you'll have a [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal bevy of bloodthirsty butterflies and beetles battering your behind beyond the battlefield.]]
