* ''Manga/DragonBallZ'' has Gotenks, the FusionDance of Trunks and Goten. Throughout most of his fight with Super Buu, he's an arrogant show-off who deliberately drags the fight out and screws around solely because he [[SkewedPriorities cares more about showing off and looking cool]]. When Buu escapes the Hyperbolic Time Chamber and eats all of his loved ones and friends, however, Gotenks breaks out Super Saiyan 3 and stops messing around, beating the ever-loving crap out of Buu; in the end, the ''only'' reason Gotenks failed to finish Buu off is because [[HourOfPower the Fusion wore off at the last second]].

* ''Manga/DragonBallZ'' Several comic relief characters from ''Franchise/DragonBall'' fall in this category. Master Roshi started out as a purely comic character (introduced as a pervert with a pet turtle)... And ''blew up a mountain '''by accident''''' (he was trying to put off the fire that was burning on it and went overboard) before the end of the episode. Yajirobe was instrumental in defeating Vegeta, and several {{Big Bad}}s came to regret underestimating Krillin. Even Mr. Satan has his moments -- he's worthless against ''ki'' fighters, but he can take down any human thug with ease.
** Even Goku himself can come off like this, often joking and light-hearted even in the midst of battle. But when you ''actually'' piss him off? You are done. Period. This even shows in his English VA, as the tone in his voice clearly changes to show he's dead serious.
** 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 ''Anime/DragonballSuper'', Beerus actually does start out as intimidating, but after his fight with Goku his character is mostly comic relief, standing around commenting on goings-on or making mostly idle threats when someone annoys him. [[spoiler:Then he receives evidence that Zamasu, a Supreme Kai-in-training, is planning on killing his mentor and embarking on a genocide across the universe(s). Beerus steps in and ''annihilates'' Zamasu in less than ten seconds, effortlessly,]] reminding everyone that the title of "God of Destruction" is not just for show.

* Any time Koichi from part 4 of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' fights villains one on one, he tend to turn from [[BewareTheNiceOnes meek scared kid into ruthless badass]] and wreck his opponent, [[DefeatMeansFriendship while simultaneosly showing him the error of his ways.]] Even in fight with [[spoiler:[[BigBad Kira]]]], who easily defeated him, Koichi still managed to pull psychological victory, by stealing his drivers licence and figuring his identity (while getting his face repeatedly smashed against the pawement), and then taunting him with a fact, that regular kid figured him out.

* 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''.

** 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.
