* 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.

* 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''.

* In ''MahouSenseiNegima'', after over 40 chapters of [[BoisterousBruiser joking]], [[MiserAdvisor price-gouging]], and [[DirtyOldMan perversion]], Jack Rakan struck a stance for the first time and hammered home the reason why they call him [[RedBaron The Thousand Blades]] and why he's considered the hero to all [[GladiatorGames slave gladiators]]. This was a point proven as one should be: a massive fist driven into the hero's gut -- [[TaughtByExperience decades of tempered strength and refined fighting skill]] [[BadAssGrandpa will do that]].
** Later on, and even more shockingly, [[spoiler:Nodoka proves that [[http://www.mangareader.net/209-47584-3/mahou-sensei-negima/chapter-280.html she will screw you up]], even if you can erase people from existence. There's a good reason that Fate considers her as dangerous as Negi.]]

* Near the end of ''VampireKnight'', it is revealed why, exactly, Cross Kaien is called the greatest Vampire Hunter still alive, when he dusts off his old sword and [[TheGlassesComeOff takes off his glasses.]]

** The first scene in which Might Guy pulls out nunchucks. He goes from PluckyComicRelief to CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass in seconds. However, his goofy personality still remains. What arguably might be his moment in the spotlight was when he struck an enemy assassin through a waterfall, believing that the fleeing enemy was actually his inner self, which he sought to defeat.[[spoiler: Then he opens all Eight Gates to fight Jinchuriki Jubi Madara and ''kicks his ass'' to the point he almost ''killed'' him.]]
