*''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.
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.

** 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.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', [[BewareTheNiceOnes goofy, silly Beast Boy]] would occasionally get pissed off and remind both villains and viewers that he was capable of turning into any animal alive ''or that had ever lived''. In one episode, he thoroughly thrashed 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 manouver" to ''[[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu hurt Trigon more than anyone had ever managed before]]''[[note]]Trigon is a gigantic EldritchAbomination. Beast Boy "patented wet-willy manouver" consisted in taking the form of a colibri, flying inside Trigon's ear, and becoming ''a whale''. Trigon started immediately crying out in pain.[[/note]] "Titans Together", where the Titans, both organized and honorary, have been decimated, and it's up to Beast Boy to lead the handful that remain against the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Brotherhood of Evil]].

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' featured an inter-grade dodgeball match, with one kid staying out of it. However, when the older kids nailed a kindergartner, this mild mannered boy showed up in a serape, calling himself "El Diablo." He proceeded to take down an entire GRADE in the span of 6 seconds. Said kid happened to be Gus, the mild meek kid of the gang.
** The awesomeness is heightened by the fact that the injured kindergartner was Hector, who hero-worships Gus so there was a ''hefty'' dose of BigBrotherInstinct thrown in there.
* Arnold's grandma in ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold''. Most of the time, she's a crazy and eccentric old woman. However, sometimes she takes matters into her own hands and solves problems when even Arnold can't; such as repairing the underground subway's wiring or stealing a bulldozer (on ''two'' occassions).

* In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars'', Yoda spends most of the time offscreen in the Jedi Temple. When the Separatist invasion of Coruscant begins, he heads to the front lines and starts forcepushing colossal troop carriers.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers'', Walter "Doc" Hartford spent most of the series as a DeadpanSnarker and "computer guy" who was nowhere ''near'' the other three when it came to a fight. But when a EvilChancellor steps in and threatens to kill the king they're trying to ally with? Doc picks up a sword, brawls him, and hands said evil adviser his ass. All the while admitting that [[MinoredInAssKicking he learned fencing from "Miss Abercrombie's Charm School!"]] This came up again when he was back on Tarkon and took down the show's nastiest villain ''singlehandedly'' using stuff he picked up in "charm school." Which has led a great many fanfic authors to wonder just what ''kind'' of Charm School Miss Abercrombie was running in the first place.

* WesternAnimation/DuckTales:''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' had a few examples:



** Fenton Crackshell should be mentioned as well. While he was ''smarter'' than Launchpad, he still had a tendency to screw things up. But he was the superhero Gizmoduck, and he occassionally showed that he was heroic and could save the day even without the Gizmo suit.

* ''WesternAnimation/MrBogus'' will very often swing around into this trope, due to his status as the ButtMonkey, despite being the main character of the show. However, when push comes to shove, he will face off against any threat that comes his way. In fact, he once took on a [[{{Gonk}} rather hideous]] EvilKnockoff of himself that threatened him and [[{{Sadist}} pushed him around repeatedly]] while he was experiencing a streak of bad luck.

* Mabel from ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' may be a girly-girl CloudCuckoolander, but she can be dangerous when provoked (especially if you threaten her brother Dipper). In the pilot episode alone, she [[spoiler: defeats an army of gnomes with ''a leaf blower''.]]
