*** In the same chapter, Sean Cassidy has previously been seen as a light-hearted and quick-witted martial arts teacher, MentorArchetype and ReasonableAuthorityFigure with a FunetikAksent (albeit one that he can dial down), albeit with hints of a DarkAndTroubledPast. Then [[spoiler: Luna Lovegood gets killed.]] After that, he demonstrates why his codename 'Banshee' is intimately associated with death.
*** Also in the same chapter, Warren's spent most of the last 20 chapters moping over his RazorWings, and generally being dismissed as pretty, but useless, Sean's pet project and largely being the StraightMan to Sean's Wise Guy. In any case, it's sufficient to make the reader forget his earlier dismantling of multiple {{Dracolich}}es during the Battle of the M4. Then, when HYDRA attack Hogwarts, he reminds both readers and cast of how terrifyingly deadly he is by [[spoiler: unleashing a MookHorrorShow straight out of the gorier parts of the Old Testament and almost singlehandedly slaughtering the entirety of HYDRA's aerial attack force wearing only a pair of pyjama bottoms. The half-mad last mook standing explicitly compares him to an angel of death, and it isn't in the least unwarranted.]]

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' provides a number of examples:
** Harry, who had previously been presented mostly as a kid being kept away from the action by his understandably protective father, Thor (he was incarnated as James Potter), is kidnapped by [[spoiler: the Disir]], horrors that took an Allfather to banish, at the end of chapter 33. He then spends chapter 34, aptly titled 'Fool's Gambit', he pulls IndyPloy after IndyPloy to get himself and the other kids kidnapped with him away from them and to somewhere they can call on Heimdall. They get away without taking a scratch.
** Harry, Diana, Uhtred, Carol and Jean-Paul do this in chapters 59 and 60, particularly the latter two, who haven't had any known combat training or combat experience. First, when trapped on a mountain (which just so happens to be a powerful and thoroughly pissed off GeniusLoci) and caught in a massive blizzard caused, in part, by [[spoiler: a terrified 11 year old Bobby Drake]], they manage to find the person in question by Uhtred's ScarilyCompetentTracker skills, despite the weather and attempts by one of the Slendermen [[TheFairFolk (Winter Fae mercenaries)]] to waylay them. Then, following a temporary PlotRelevantAgeUp, they take on all comers, primarily demonically enhanced werewolves to protect [[spoiler: Bobby]] who HYDRA are after, with Harry boring a hole in a mountain several miles away with a 'small' fireblast. And when HYDRA send in their trump card, [[spoiler: a copy of the Destroyer remotely piloted by Baron Zemo]], [[spoiler: Diana]] winds up ''ripping it in half''.
** Harry does this again in chapter 70 when in his second real fight (the first was rather brief) when he isn't simply buying time to get away or given a temporary PlotRelevantAgeUp to his adult self, charging head on into a massive HYDRA assault force and tearing them to shreds. Unfortunately, he's a GlassCannon and runs up against [[spoiler: Daken]], who succeeds in [[spoiler: killing him. Briefly.]] After this final episode of BreakTheCutie, he remains consistently dangerous and faintly terrifying.

* The Inquisitors have a few moments like this in ''[[Fanfic/TwiceUponAnAge All This Sh*t is Twice as Weird]]'', such as when they learn that some of their soldiers have been taken prisoner in the Fallow Mire and [[spoiler:when they're fighting to get out of the Fade]].

* In ''Fanfic/TheWizardInTheShadows'', at the final battle of the Black Gate, all seems lost. [[spoiler:Harry]], the most powerful weapon in the arsenal of the Light ,is dead, the Sword of Gryffindor that allowed him to draw on impossible amounts of power is inert, and the forces of good are sorely outnumbered. Then Ginny -- up until this point merely quite powerful -- picks up the Sword and says a LittleNo. The Sword responds. Cue three giant tornadoes of fire and a whole world of hurt being laid on Mordor's forces.

* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'': Shinji used to be wimpy and non-confrontational, but after returning to the past, being aware of what will happen if he fails, he is way more dangerous and fights like a berserker.

* Chapter 13 of ''FanFic/TheCommission'' has Qrow intercept Ruby [[CurbStompBattle and kick her ass totally]]. This gets her desperate enough to [[spoiler:bust out her Spring Maiden powers ([[YouKillItYouBoughtIt complete with a flashback of her meeting the girl before killing her for it]]).]]

* Havoc does this in the Fanfic/ElementalChessTrilogy. Just like in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', he's a bit goofy and loves to make jokes, and has a powerful nostalgic streak. When things go south for his beloved commanding officers, however, he steps up and takes charge, reminding everyone just why he's one of Roy Mustang's most trusted subordinates.

* In ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/237978/how-trixie-somehow-saved-hearths-warming How Trixie (Somehow) Saved Hearth's Warming]]'', Trixie is her normal hammy, bragging self and just manages to skirt by in the situation she's gotten herself into (namely saving Hearth's Warming) by being MistakenForBadass. However, after [[BalefulPolymorph being turned into a nutcracker]] by [[Theater/TheNutcracker the Rat King]], she goes into a HeroicBSOD until [[spoiler:she finds out Vixen was desperately trying to finally stand out among the rest of Santa's reindeer and is having a HeroicBSOD as a result of their capture. Trixie quickly realizes this means the two of them are NotSoDifferent, both feeling OvershadowedByAwesome by somepony else and just wanting to stand out]]. This realization causes Trixie to snap out of it and devote everything she has to getting them through this. [[spoiler:She ultimately stages a prison break and defeats the Rat King via quick thinking and plenty of IndyPloy, saving not only the two of them but all the Rat King's slaves.]] Even Trixie is surprised.
