* Wiz from KonoSuba reminds everyone in the second season finale exactly why she was one of the Devil King's generals. Normally portrayed as a bumbling and constantly unlucky shopkeeper who keeps getting knocked out by Aqua's holy magic, she unleashes immense amounts of magic when she finds out [[spoiler:Hans has been killing innocents, in violation of the agreement she had with the other generals.]]

** Though he gave Sanji a good fight in the Alabasta arc, Mr. 2 Bon Kurei was generally considered a joke both before and after his HeelFaceTurn. Then he reappears in Impel Down, and fights off a pack of the highest level prison guard "mooks". With his bare hands. In sub-zero temperatures. Half naked. To save the main character's life. Sure, he had to have some skills to be the second strongest fighter in a major criminal organization, but with how much ObfuscatingStupidity he did...''[[BadAss damn.]]''

** That's nothing compared to what [[TheWoobie Dr. Marcoh]] had [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome done]] to Envy.

** While Kurenai Shinkurou does qualify (he has some martial arts training, but his peers are far superior), similar occurrences happen earlier on. Additionally, [[spoiler:the blade [[InvoluntaryTransformation appears involuntarily]] and Shinkurou says outright he doesn't want to use it.]] However, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome damn]] is right.

* Generally, [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass Gintoki]] doesn't need more than [[WoodenKatanasAreEvenBetter the wooden sword he bought in an infomercial]] to slice and dice his enemies, alien airships, towering mechas, and so on. There are at most two or three enemies in ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' whom he deems strong enough that he decides to swap his wooden sword for a real sword in the fight. However, you'll know that he still doesn't consider his enemies challenging until he starts [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome dual wielding]].

* Mitsuko Kongou of ''Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun''. Vain, boastful, and generally seen getting embarrassed or beaten up. Then, come episode 23, she finally gets into a situation where she can see her opponent and use her powers. Immediate cut to the BigBad being informed that a PowerArmor squad has been taken out. The next episode marks her first on-screen power use when she ''air punches a truck into a pair of attack helicopters''. Not to mention what she's shown to be capable of during the climax of ''S'' where she uses her powers to send a huge battle robot into the god damn ''stratosphere''. It tires her out but [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome woah]].

* From ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. We've always known that Major Armstrong was tough, but we never really knew what he was capable of until his fight with Sloth. [[BadAss He.]] [[LightningBruiser Opens.]] [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown A.]] ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Can.]]''

** Origami Cyclone as well. This is a guy whose main style of 'heroism' is to pop up everywhere there's a camera, largely because he doesn't think his [[VoluntaryShapeshifting superpower]] measures up to the other heroes. Later in the series, after a boost of confidence, he proves to be much more {{badass}} than he had been before, [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower using his power]] to disguise himself as a ''wanted poster'' at one point, and proving that he really can fight in the finale.

* ''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]].

to:

* ''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''.
