* ''TheMarvelousMisadventuresOfFlapjack'' sees washed-up sailor Cap'n K'nuckles beating up a crew of pirates three at a time in "One Hundred Percensus": [[BookDumb "I can't count to four,]] [[PreAssKickingOneLiner but I can count to three."]]
* ''TheMightyHeroes'' seem like ineffectual stumblebums in the first half of an episode, but once they escape the DeathTrap and regroup, they are ''unstoppable''!

* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', [[BewareTheNiceOnes goofy, silly Beast Boy]] occasionally gets pissed off and reminds both villains and viewers that he was capable of turning into any animal alive ''or that had ever lived''. In one episode, he thoroughly thrashes Slade [[spoiler:or rather a roboSlade, though the two were usually interchangeable]] - despite the fact that this was someone who regularly whooped the team's designated {{badass}}, Robin. This is especially evident in "The End", where he uses his "patented wet-willy maneuver" to ''[[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu hurt Trigon more than anyone had ever managed before]].''[[note]]Trigon is a gigantic EldritchAbomination. Beast Boy's "patented wet-willy maneuver" consists of taking the form of a colibri, flying inside Trigon's ear, and becoming ''a whale''. Trigon starts immediately crying out in pain.[[/note]]

* Sewer Urchin of ''WesternAnimation/TheTick'' is a semi-scatterbrained guy who talks like Rain Man and gets knocked around pretty often. However, this is because he's out of his element. In the sewers, he's BadAss to the bone, to the point where The City's sewer workers talk about him with hushed tones of awe.

** In episode 10, this is proven to be true of [[spoiler: all three of Tenzin's children. [[CuteBookworm Jinora]] sent the [[TheDragon Lieutenant]] [[WorfEffect flying]], [[MotorMouth Ikki]] took out a bunch of chi-blockers with her air-scooter, and Meelo [[{{Fartillery}} gassed]] the rest of them. Oh, and they did this to protect the series' token BadAss, Lin Bei Fong.]]

* Scooby in ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryInc'' is the same loveable dog as in all canons. However, when a MonsterOfTheWeek actually tried to kill the gang for real, [[spoiler: he [[ForkliftFu pilots a forklift]] and beats the living crap out of it before dispatching it with one of the most BadAss lines ever uttered]]:

** Doubly so Fluttershy -- usually timid as anything, and unable to stand up for herself, but threatening ''others'' can make her angry enough to forget herself and suddenly have enough attitude for a grade-A BadAss, as well as a DeathGlare powerful enough to cow fully-grown dragons and win staring contests with ''cockatrices''. While normally a weak flyer, Fluttershy can also [[ImprobablePilotingSkills fly well enough to keep up with]] [[LightningBruiser Rainbow Dash]] when her friends are in danger.

* In ''[[HulkVs Hulk vs Wolverine]]'', after Logan gets a supreme ass kicking by the big green guy himself, he [[GoodThingYouCanHeal wakes up a few seconds later]] and goes "ok bub, lets try that again" and proceeds to own. This is actually embarrassing considering the other film has Thor getting pounded into oblivion. Course [[PopularityPower the son of Odin isn't to blame for lack of skill]]

** Discord is normally a quirky and egotistical [[TricksterGod trickster]] who can't be bothered to help with other ponies' problems or [[ComplexityAddiction do anything in a straightforward way]]. But [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E25ToWhereAndBackAgainPart1 when he learns that]] [[spoiler:[[MoralityPet Fluttershy]] has been taken by the Changelings]], he immediately becomes [[TranquilFury deadly serious]] and focused, and [[DungeonBypass teleports directly to]] [[spoiler:the Changeling hive]].



Everyone there, including Peepers and the people whose planets he tried to conquer in Season 1 cheer for him.
All it took Hater to accomplish this was not being distracted by Wander's antics. So, whenever he is focuses, he is indeed the Greatest in The Galaxy.

** Seriously, don't screw with the Cutie Mark Crusaders. When they've finally been pushed too far by [[TheBully Babs Seed]] the [[ShoutOut A-Team]] music plays, they build an entire motorized parade float in less than a night, fit it with a booby-trap (made from an ''egg timer'') that will send it careening off a cliff at ''precisely'' the right time, and lure Babs into stealing it with a BatmanGambit. They ''even plant a mattress to land on when she shoves them out of the way'', and the only reason it fails is because they have a sudden attack of conscience and save her (The plan itself works beautifully). Seriously, if only they'd realized their already existing talents or skills, they'd already have their cutie marks!

** In ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E26TwilightsKingdomPart2 Twilight's Kingdom Part 2]]'', Twilight spends most of the episode too afraid of her own power- and of Tirek absorbing it- to participate in the fight (helped by the fact that her mentor specifically told her to keep the alicorns' magic safe from Tirek). When Tirek finally confronts her, she is initially on the defensive, teleporting around at rapid-fire speed to avoid Tirek's attacks. Then one of those attacks destroys the library, at which point Twilight absolutely loses it; she ''immediately'' goes on the offensive, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome delivering an anime-style beatdown that would not have been at all out of place in]] ''[[Anime/DragonBallZ]]''.

*''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'': Lord Hater, the previous [[BigBad Big Bad]] of the show, whose title was usurped by the much more dangerous and efficient [[EvilerThanThou Lord Dominator]] has one of these moments in the Series Finale. She has destroyed every single planet of the galaxy, forcing their inhabitants to either flee to other galaxies or, [[NeverSayDie you know]]. She has [[VillainousCrush broken Lord Hater's heart]] and [[KickTheDog ridiculed him for it]]. She has taken over his entire empire. As for now, the only remaining people on the galaxy are Wander, Sylvia, a bunch of past characters hidden in a small undetected planet, Lord Hater and Commander Peepers along their army of Watchdogs and Dominator herself. So, what is Hater to do?
**He uses his extensive knowledge [[HiddenDepths on thermodynamics and gravity]] to locate the planet of the refugees.
**When he finds out Wander is in the planet, instead of chasing after him and ruining his plan like always, he uses Wander's presence as a distraction to keep Dominator busy while he attacks.
**He turns his ship into a far more badass looking one (THE SKULLCRUSHER!) ([[OneHitKill which is rather pointless in the end, as Dominator one shots it anyway]]).
**When Dominator is about to [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath impale Sylvia with a massive drill]] Lord Hater protects the entire planet with a force field created by himself. Dominator then gives him a [[BreakThemByTalking breaking speech]], which is countered by Sylvia and the rest of the survivors chanting Hater's name, which provides him with the confidence to amplify his force field's potency to the point Dominator's ship is impaled by its own drill, finally defeating her.
Everyone there, including Peepers and the people whose planets he tried to conquer in Season 1 cheer for him.

** There's also Wendy, who normally acts pretty laid back and doesn't typically seek out trouble the way Dipper and Mabel do... but she's more than capable of handling herself in a fight if she has to. She is related to [[TheBigGuy Manly Dan]], after all.

* ''ClueClub'': In "The Walking House Caper," a mysterious monster figure locks Larry, Pepper and D.D. in a house. Larry uses his communicator to contact Dotty at home base in hopes she'll call the police. Dotty and the show's two dogs, Woofer and Wimper, take it upon themselves to lure the monster away from the house so they can rescue the others. And Dotty does have the foresight to call the police as well.

* The TropeNamer himself, WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck. He's goofy, grumpy, and has an ego the size of a small planet. But tick him off, and the guilty party will find itself on the receiving end of Quack-Fu and an intelligent, strategic brain that understands both chemicals and criminals. Simply put, he's Disney's equivalent of Franchise/{{Batman}}. Mess with him and you ''will'' lose.
