** In the [=#CellGames=] video series, [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Kenshiro]] proves to be this. After defeating or forcing to retreat [[Manga/YuYuHakusho Yusuke Urameshi]], [[Manga/YuGiOh Yami Yugi]], [[Franchise/StreetFighter Ryu and Ken]] and [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic and Knuckles]], Kenshiro walks us and... wants to know if Cell has "bug meat". All the while Cell mocks him, calling him a hobo and, once he performs the ''[[RapidFireFisticuffs Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken]]'', mocks the attack as "tickling". Until Kenshiro tells him "YouAreAlreadyDead". And causes Cell to ''explode''.

** Some of the Devil Fruit powers people have are also ridiculous in premise but incredibly strong in the hands of those who wield them. This includes:
*** Kaku, who, with the Ox-ox Fruit: Model Giraffe, has the power to turn into a giraffe. Initially, no one takes him seriously--not his opponents, and not his fellow assassins. But as he is already an accomplished martial artist, he uses his giraffe's long limbs for additional reach and force, and once he transforms, he begins with a kick so strong, it tears off the upper floors of the building he's in, and he proves to be just as big of a threat as he claims to be.
*** Giolla/[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Jolla/Jora]] uses her [[MadArtist Art-Art Fruit]] to spontaneously create whatever new art piece she wants by transforming things into her cubist style. This soon reveals itself to be a StoryBreakerPower, because whatever weapons she transforms loses their effectiveness in battle, and any ''people'' she transforms loses all of their Devil Fruit powers and fighting skill they might have had. This soon ventures into horror as she can also take said transformed people and merge them with other transformed objects, upon which they'll lose consciousness in a few hours and die shortly afterwards. She keeps a collection of artistic corpses as her private collection.
*** Diamante, whose Ripple-Ripple Fruit powers allows him to cause anything in physical contact with him to ripple like a sheet of fabric. To start, he wears a sheet of steel like a cape, allowing him to block most attacks. He can also use this power to store a large amount of weaponry on himself, including a series of flattened cannons that shoot confetti, only said confetti is actually spiked balls that revert in midair and rain pain down all around him.
*** Charlotte Cracker has the power of the Biscuit-Biscuit Fruit, which allows him to generate an unlimited amount of biscuits. [[LoopholeAbuse Nothing states that his biscuits have to sustain a normal, expected biscuit shape, however,]] and Cracker uses this power to [[spoiler:create a never-ending, always-regenerating personal army of humanlike biscuit constructs to do his fighting for him.]]
*** Baron Tamago ate the Egg-Egg Fruit, which allows him to split open like an egg if he takes what is otherwise a lethal cutting or blunt force attack, and he reincarnates as a chicken. The chicken form, however, is stronger and faster than his base form (who is already incredibly strong to begin with), creating a nasty surprise to anyone who fights Tamago and thinks they have the upper hand.

** Ice King gets special mention. You'd damn near think he's comic relief or a heart breaking character. But every once in a rare while, [[Spoiler:Simon]] loses control of the powers. When he does; it's not pleasant.

* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'': Prometheus Black[=/=]Meltdown, despite his DiscoDan style outfits and cartoony MadScientist nature is, ''by far,'' the most dangerous human villain on the show. That may not seem like much, considering [[HarmlessVillain the other villains]], but he's almost on the same level of evil as the Decepticons. While other human villains at most got a single episode of being at all dangerous, Meltdown was ''consistently'' portrayed as a genuine threat nearing if not equaling the Decepticons -- who in this continuity, are incredibly dangerous threats that are more than a match for the team on an equal playing field.

Between his skills in the aforementioned mad science, and a touch so corrosive that even the Dinobots quickly learned to fear it, this is far from unwarranted.

* In ''LIterature/{{Foundation}} and Empire'', Magnifico Giganticus appears first as a rather pathetic clown before being revealed as [[spoiler: a mutant telepath known as the Mule who conquers a significant portion of the galaxy and nearly destroys the titular Foundation forever]].

* Tom Bombadil from ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' is some weird sort of forest-dwelling humanoid of mysterious origin. He happily skips along and sings wherever he goes, and is one of the most aloof, nonsensical people you could meet in Middle-earth. He also happens to be at ''least'' as old as Treebeard, has control of the huorns of the Old Forest and the barrow-wights of the Barrow-downs, and is so powerful that the One Ring itself has no hold over him.


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TheBattleForMiddleEarth 2'': As noted under the literature section above, Tom Bombadil's weirdness is matched only by his power. In the game, he skips merrily along, crushing anyone he smacks into. His one ability, Sonic Song, causes a shockwave which knocks entire ranks of enemies flying. He also has 5000 hit points, meaning you'll need a lot of firepower to bring him down.
* Tom Bombadil does it ''again'' in ''VideoGame/TheLordOfTheRingsOnline''. In this game, he rambles nonsensically about his past and the place he lives in, and at one point goes so far as to accidentally (maybe) scatter Bingo's manuscript all over the Old Forest and Barrow-downs. He's also the one who saves the player during their first encounter with Sambrog the Wight-lord, and is personally responsible for the [[spoiler: cursed spirits haunting the Red Swamp. Long ago, a sect of Arnorians was assigned to keep watch over his sister-in-law, but failed to do so, allowing her to turn evil. Tom cursed them in much the same way Isildur cursed the Dead Men of Dunharrow -- they may never depart the world until their oath is fulfilled]]. Tom Bombadil may act silly, but he can be downright ''nasty'' when he wants to be.

* [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys Chimpanzees]] are known for being human-like, to the point where they are dressed in human outfits. Also, they can make a funny, huge, toothy grin they flash for the cameras, it makes them look devilish. The bad thing is, it's not a grin, but a mouthful of very large teeth being bared. One chimp even attacked his caretaker once. And don't get us started on National Geographic's Frodo...

*** ComicBook/HarleyQuinn, though it varies more with her. Though mainly known for agility, people often forget that she (in the main DC comics continuity) also has superhuman strength (how else does she wield those giant mallets?) It's also easy to forget that she was a brilliant psychologist, and can revert to that personality to both apply those skills to mess with her opponent's head and to pass as normal far better than the Joker can. In her most recent incarnation, it's implied the Joker actually considers her more of a successor than a sidekick/girlfriend. Harley's issue of the ''Joker's Asylum'' series explicitly lampshades this. You do '''not''' want to stop her from getting to her "pudding" on Valentine's Day.

That is until [[spoiler: they call out their superior, Karsh, for the murder of Dario, upon which they drop all the silliness and become a genuinely challenging boss fight]].
