* ''Doc Louis's PunchOut'' ([[LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition exclusive to Club Nintendo Platinum members or those around for its final sale]] as of this writing): [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EpbyzjlO20 As this video demonstrates]], if you [[spoiler:knock a [[TrademarkFavoriteFood chocolate bar]] out of his hands]], he'll get angry and [[spoiler:shed his jacket to reveal ''a leopard-print jacket'']], and the training essentially becomes a Title Defense fight.

* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'': For the first two routes, Rider comes across as a ''very'' mediocre Servant, losing to a half powered Saber in Fate and to a normal ''human'' (with Reinforced fists but ''still'') in UBW. But then you get to HF, and it looks like she's dead again to Saber -- and did she just curbstomp True Assassin, effortlessly turn Archer (who spent the previous two routes establishing himself as a {{badass}}) to stone, and fighting on near even terms with Dark Saber while not having a Master to draw energy from? [[TookALevelInBadass Holy crap.]]

* ''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 [[TakingYouWithMe with ''zero HP''.]]]]

* Phoenix Wright, ''Franchise/AceAttorney''. He spends the majority of each case absolutely floundering and desperately looking for flaws in the witness testimonies. Then comes that brilliant moment where all the contradictions fall into place to reveal the truth, and he becomes akin to a force of nature.\\
This is reflected in his appearance in ''Ultimate VideoGame/MarvelVersusCapcom3'', where he spends most of the battle with fairly underpowered attacks, until he collects enough evidence to enter trial mode, when he becomes a force to be reckoned with. He can even take things UpToEleven by entering the even more powerful Turnabout Mode by landing an objection on his opponent in trial mode.

* 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 track that plays during the fight is even titled "Porky Means Business."[[note]]Though it's actually called '''Cease to Exist''']]

* 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''.

* For most of ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma'', Akane is aiming for an ideal outcome in which everyone peacefully survives the Decision Game. Then her LoveInterest is brutally murdered, and you can practically ''see'' her priorities change to '[[RoaringRampageOfRevenge roarsmashkill]]'. She doesn't even try to mediate the situation after that.

* 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.

* 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.]]

* ''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.
