* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'': Galuf is a wisecracking old coot who makes bad puns and happily uses his amnesia to duck blame. This changes completely when he has to rescue the others, and particularly whenever [[BigBad Exdeath]] gets involved -- he is quite a {{Badass}}, enough to [[spoiler:defeat Exdeath with ''zero HP''.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'', throughout most of the game, the Vortigaunts serve as your alien allies in the fight against the Combine, providing some technical support and adding some interesting variety to the rebel fighters. However, you never actually see them in combat. This changes in Episode 2 in the chapter Vortal Combat, where the Vortigaunts show you the true power of the Vortessence along with an epic fight song against legions of ant lions.

* Porky/[[DubNameChange Pokey]] Minch spends most of ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' avoiding confrontation with Ness and just being an annoyance. Come the final battle, and now he's got a spider-mech and he's fighting alongside Gyiyg/[[DubNameChange Giygas]] and he's a major threat. The music that plays during the fight is even titled "Porky Means Business."

* Kaneda spends much of (i.e. the entire 1st chapter and quite a bit of the 2nd) ''PrincessWaltz'' as a background classmate noted only for comedically fainting at any sign of arousal...then [[spoiler:TheGlassesComeOff in the middle of a Guardener attack via awesome TransformationSequence with OminousLatinChanting Techno accompaniment]] and we find out that [[spoiler:she is in fact Liesel, the GeniusBruiser princess/WAR MACHINE.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The {{Remake}} of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'' has a minor, purely visual example with Chris who normally fires his shotgun from the hip. When you're facing a boss, however, he fires from the shoulder. The implication is that for creatures like zombies he's a good enough shot to take them down with a hip shot, but when facing a giant snake or the [[FinalBoss Tyrant]] they're deadly enough that every shot counts so he'd better aim properly and ''hit that damned weak spot''.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'': Joyce is a simple commoner hyur featured in the Machinist job quest chain. Both her hair and overall demeanor change profusely whenever she has to use her gun, which is preceded by FiringInTheAirALot, a ton of cursing and a [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration status buff indicating the change if you click on her]].

** Let's not forget our hero, Sora. Cheerful, kind, caring, decent smarts,doesn't want to fight generally, a good best friend character. Except he's the lead. A lead who has saved the worlds multiple times, knows some very advanced magic, and has beaten eldritch horrors to a pulp with a GIANT KEY. And that is NOT touching on his ability to hold people in heart, which may end up saving the universe on it's own.

** To say nothing of Mario himself. Normally he's just a [[BigFun kindhearted chubby Italian plumber]] who [[NewJobAsThePlotDemands spends his time trying out different professions]] [[Videogame/SuperSmashBrothers and throwing the occasional]] [[Videogame/MarioKart community]] [[Videogame/MarioParty get-together]]. But if someone shows up to try and harm the Mushroom Kingdom or Princess Peach, then [[BewareTheNiceOnes that chubby Italian plumber]] [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown becomes a destructive force of nature!]]
