* [[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.]]

* In ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', we have the [[http://youtu.be/WUhOnX8qt3I Pyro]]. A monstrous creature that instills fear in everyone, even to the people on the same team. It destroys everything in its path and leaves no survivors. It seems unstoppable, sadistic, and completely merciless, spreading chaos wherever it goes...but in its mind, it's in a [[TheWonderland beautiful wonderland]], [[SugarBowl with fairies and giant lollipops and presents scattered across the land]]. It just wants to spread happiness and joy, blowing bubbles everywhere, while a constant loop of ''Do You Believe in Magic'' by The Lovin' Spoonful plays. The Pyro is a badass and isn't even aware of it.

** Both Toriel and [[spoiler:Asgore]] can be argued to be this as well. Toriel's badassery is established early on when she effortlessly blows away the HopelessBossBattle in one hit, but it's easy to forget about it as she dotes on the character, literally holding them by the hand through puzzles. [[spoiler:Asgore is [[TheGoodKing a big fluffy pushover of a king]] who would like nothing more than to offer you tea, but for the sake of his subjects, he has to kill you - and even though he can barely find in himself the will to attack you, his attacks are still hellish to avoid.]]
