* ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'''s Charles Foster Ofdensen, Dethklok's mild-mannered manager/lawyer/accountant. Hints are given throughout the first season that Ofdensen is more than what he seems, but we don't see this full until the finale, which manages to be Crowning Moments of both [[CrowningMomentOfAwesomeWesternAnimation awesome]] and [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming]]. A somewhat unique example, in that the villains make a point of taking his awesomeness into account in season 2 and adjusting accordingly.

* 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]]

* ''WesternAnimation/PJMasks'': Has this once per episode, and marked by their catchphrase "Time to be a hero!". Whatever personal problem was holding them back before, when they say this they have learned the Aesop of that episode and can finally tackle the problem they're facing head on.

* [[BadassGrandpa Iroh]] from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. He gets to do this a number of times, the first being when he is kidnapped by earthbenders just before the winter solstice. He nearly manages to escape on his own, buying time for Zuko to show up. They proceed to lay the smackdown on them without even firebending (that would have been unfair). Another is at the North Pole, after Zhao destroys the Moon Spirit. Then there is the second season premiere, in which he redirects Azula's lightning and kicks her overboard just as she's about to finish off Zuko. Finally, there is the scene when Iroh demonstrates how he got the nickname "Dragon of the West." Moral of the story: do ''not'' underestimate someone who once broke through the outer wall of Ba Sing Se, no matter how harmless he may seem now.

*** Also note that the only reason they got that far was because Mane-iac underestimated Humdrum, the powerless sidekick,allowing him to tutor all the ponies their superpowers and later shrewdly disarm Mane-iac's forces and release the ponies behind her back. Who played Humdrum? Spike, of course.

** 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.]]
** Then there's Bolin for that matter. When he's not being the ButtMonkey, he kicks a fair amount of ass with his own Earthbending.

* Edward in "WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine" often was the subject of mockery and ridicule for his age, thought of as a slow and weak engine constantly running late with his trains. Come "Old Iron", James finds himself a runaway, speeding up with no driver on the main line, rescued by Edward speeding up the line with his crew to bring James back under control. Other examples include pushing Gordon's freight train up a steep hill with at most half-hearted help in "Edward and Gordon", and pulling a heavy tourist train with a failed sanding gear, no side rods, and a broken crank pin in "Edward's Exploit".

* For the first season of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'', Soundwave kept away from the front lines; the only fight he got into was with the kid sidekicks of the Autobots (his drone also fought a single Helicopter once). In the finale [[spoiler: [[DarkActionGirl Airachnid]] tries to [[TheStarscream convince the Decepticons to abandon Earth, and Megatron]]. Soundwave effortlessly tosses her around, forcing her to abandon her mutiny.]] No wonder Starscream wanted to stay on his good side. [[spoiler: He's since dethroned Wheeljack as Most Badass Character in the show by kicking the everloving slag out of him. Soundwave Superior, indeed.]]

** In the episode "Octi-Evil": Blossom and Buttercup, having spent the better part of the episode fighting with each other, bury the hatchet to save Bubbles.

** Bumblebee and Bulkhead of the same series would also qualify for this as out of the main line-up they are the youngest and most comical of the Autobots. Particularly in the series' finale when they take on Shockwave, who is mostly owning them in the first part of the fight, until Bulkhead rushes him and floors the guy so hard that his chest smashes, his weapon is knocked away and he even has to resort to pleading for his life. And he did it ''with one punch''.
