* OnePunchMan: Saitama is [[WorldsStrongestMan plenty dangerous usually]], having enough SuperStrength to [[OneHitKill one-shot]] pretty much everything. But when he's confronted with one of the very few things that he can't kill with one punch, he brings out his Serious Series and reveals that that GameBreaker level of power from earlier was him ''barely trying''.

But when he's confronted with one of the very few things that he can't kill with one punch, punch (or someone manages to ''really'' piss him off), he brings out his Serious Series and reveals that that GameBreaker level of power from earlier was him ''barely trying''.

** Joey in particular demonstrates this trope a lot. Most of the time, he's the PluckyComicRelief far outshadowed by his King of Games best friend, who, after all, has ''card-playing superpowers''. But every once in a while, when you push him up against a wall, or you threaten the well-being of his sister, Mai, or Yugi, his eyes become little windows to hell, and you'd better brace yourself for a ''hard'' smackdown; he's Yugi's [[TheLancer Lancer]] for a reason. The only time this has ''failed'' is his duel against Marik, and he managed to (mostly) withstand an attack by an [[OlympusMons Egyptian god]] and get Marik to practically crap his pants before collapsing mere seconds before winning the duel.

The only time this has ''failed'' is his duel against Marik, Yami Marik. During the Shadow Game (where each hit and he managed to (mostly) withstand an attack by monster loss results in serious ''pain''), Joey felt the full power and might of an [[OlympusMons Egyptian god]] and get managed to remain ''standing''. Yami Marik was ''terrified'' since he was now open to practically crap his pants an attack, which would cost him the duel. Joey managed to summon Gearfried the Iron Knight, but collasped before collapsing mere seconds before he could finish calling the attack. He was literally ''seconds'' away from winning the duel.duel and saving the world.

* Fai of ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' usually keeps to the sidelines and teases Kurogane until he is pissed enough to tear their enemies a new one but when he does get out there you might wanna run.

** Are you kidding? At the end, he risked his life to save Vegeta and even helped give Goku the power he needed to take down Kid Buu.
*** There's also the fact that he was able to make himself Majin Buu's MoralityPet. Buu would have been fully redeemed if not for those idiot bikers gunning Mr. Satan down.



*** But if you think Goku is bad enough, you have yet to see what happens when '''Gohan''' invokes this trope (often by flying into a near-psychotic rage when younger, and then into a TranquilFury as he grew up). He won't just crush you. If you piss him off enough, he'll hand you a humilliating NoHoldsBarredBeatdown of the type not even [[MadeOfIron Vegeta]] can withstand.

* In ''TigerAndBunny'', Kotetsu/Wild Tiger has shown himself to be a complete dork and something of a klutz. However, dork or not, he's still a veteran superhero (and, according to Yuri Petrov's archived data, a former holder of the King of Heroes title) and demonstrates quite regularly that he can be quite a ''badass'' dork.

* Chichiri and Nuriko from ''FushigiYuugi'' both tend to be comic relief, with Chichiri sticking to the "religious" side of ReligiousBruiser and Nuriko a sassy WholesomeCrossdresser. Except when you need Chichiri to single-handedly get you out of the enemy stronghold, or when you need Nuriko to take on a ferocious wolf-man, and they reveal their heights of badassitude.

* Also, in the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime, Misty's Psyduck. Normally totally useless, but whenever it gets a serious headache, it gains amazing psychic powers.
** Misty's Togepi. The little ball of cuteness that can barely walk on its own packs a mean Metronome attack which saves the day almost every time it uses it.
** Ash turning his hat backwards might also count in the earlier episodes, although he's done it once or twice recently as well.

* Mitsumi from ''PokemonDiamondAndPearlAdventure''. Of course, it makes sense that she's that powerful, seeing as [[spoiler:she used to be a Team Galactic officer]].
* [[FriendToAllLivingThings Yellow]] from ''PokemonSpecial''. She is sweet and pacifistic to the degree it pains her to hurt enemies (a psychic empath), even if it means more trouble for her, not to mention she's a terrible battler and her Pokemon's levels are rather laughably low compared to the other Dex Holders. However, [[BewareTheNiceOnes push her to the edge enough]] and her Pokemon's levels get boosted up to the point that she can take down just about ''anybody''. (This phenomenon has been scientifically measured, their powers are roughly tripled to quadrupled.) Lance got his ass handed to him and Sird/Storc wisely decided to make a run for it before Yellow got the chance to do the same to her.

* Any time [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Qs9EiK_JJE this music]] plays in ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', it's a sure sign that Battler is about to be way, way more awesome than anyone expected. This means doing something like [[spoiler:completely ignoring the most powerful attack the Siestas can throw at him]]. Other human characters also have HiddenDepths of badassitude, but he's the only one to have a separate ''theme song'' for them.

** A downplayed and subtle version occurs in the filler G-8 arc. During the first confrontation between Luffy and Vice Admiral Jonathan, Luffy spends most of his time grinning and cheerfully eating Jonathan's food, unconcerned that he and his crew could be found out. Then Jonathan informs Luffy that [[spoiler: NumberTwo Zoro]] was captured and Luffy ''immediately'' stops laughing and becomes deadly serious, wearing his [[TranquilFury dangerous blank expression]] and prepares to fight Jonathan.
