* Po from ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda''. While not inept, he's a bumbler and a daydreamer. After some focus and hardcore training, however, he not only managed to take down the BigBad, but [[spoiler: his idols are so impressed, they kneel before him]].

After some focus and hardcore training, however, he not only managed to take down the BigBad, but [[spoiler: his idols are so impressed, they kneel before him]]. In the sequel, he is more consistently BadAss, having become a very skilled martial artist who can at least keep up with the Furious Five in battle and [[AcroFatic is quite good at using his weight and bulk to his advantage]], but he is still a [[BigEater big-eating]] goofball, his [[AscendedFanboy fanboyishness]] is still showing a lot, and he ''still'' can't handle stairs.

** The camera then [[GilliganCut cuts]] to a scene of [[spoiler:Brody in a crowded market, conspicuously wearing the same thing he always does, calling out "Does anybody speak English?"]] He eventually redeems himself by clonking a Nazi unconscious with a bottle while in the tank.

** There's a reason you rarely hear about deaths in an amusement park where most of the visitors have put their brain on hold and many of the attractions involve complex machinery - safety is Disney's number one priority. ** And do not challenege [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Gaston]]. "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tO0SDqqyx8g No one can do push-ups better than Gaston.]]" * Pigeons. The little bastards can dodge hawk attacks. (Most of the time). * The tufted titmouse. A six-inch-tall bird, with [[ScunthorpeProblem a name that causes giggles]] and [[BilingualBonus literally translates to]] [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "small bird"]]. Known to pull hair off sleeping dogs, cats, and squirrels to line their nests. This little critter goes up to carnivores many times its size and ''steals their hair''. * [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lycaon_pictus African Wild Dogs]]. They come in [[HighlyVisibleNinja splashy]] [[HighlyConspicuousUniform patchworks]] of black, white, and tan, sometimes resembling [[NonIronicClown clowns]] with their big, goofy ears. Their hierarchy is submission-based and packs are very close-knit, which results in lots of [[BigFriendlyDog silly puppy]] [[http://zimbabwewilddogs.wildlifedirect.org/2009/03/05/wild-dog-antics/ antics]]. Compare this description with the fact that they have an '''80% kill rate for hunts''' - for comparison, lions, aka the KingOfBeasts, average a measly ''30%'' success. Who's [[IncrediblyLamePun top dog]] now? * Corgis. The little dogs the Queen of England keeps as pets. They used to be used for cattle herding. They responded to being charged by a bull by biting it on the nose. A small bull weighs roughly the same as 30 large corgis. ** Most dog breeds when they put into their natural element for their breed. Great Danes that don't know their own size are for boars. Weenie Dachshunds are for badgers, the animal that ''lions'' avoid. All breeds of Spaniels are legendary hunting dogs, with Cockers in particular getting their name from being great at hunting woodcocks. All terriers are to fight one on one in cramped dark tunnels. St. Bernards and other mountain dogs for search and rescue under avalanche and blizzard conditions. Etc. * Giant anteaters have been known to kill predators like jaguars. * We hand you over to ''Website/{{Cracked}}'' for the following lists: [[http://www.cracked.com/article_15853_the-6-cutest-animals-that-can-still-destroy-you.html The 6 Cutest Animals who can Still Destroy You]], and [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19139_9-acts-vigilantism-straight-out-comic-book.html 9 Acts of Vigilantism Straight out of the Comic-Books]]. Literally everything on those two lists qualifies for this trope. * [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7TYr4PFQGk This bully and his victim]] - when the bullied kid not only turned the tables, but the bully as well. ** Could be a case of MuggingTheMonster or BullyingADragon when you consider just how much bigger the one being bullied was.

* Though this is mentioned in the Cracked article above, the hippopotamus deserves a special mention. Chubby river dwelling creatures that look like they couldn't hurt a fly, right? Wrong. The hippo is widely regarded as one of the most aggressive animals in the world, and one of, if not ''the'' most dangerous creature in all of Africa, a continent second only to Australia in {{Everything Trying To Kill You}}-ness. Steve Irwin, a man who called himself ''the Series/CrocodileHunter'', considered crossing a river filled with hippos to be the most dangerous moment of his career. --> ''Cracked:'' There's this word, "territorial," that nature takes pretty seriously. When it's applied to a two-ton animal with teeth the size of bowling pins, that is one hell of a word. The sort of word you either pay very close attention to, or ignore and end up with a complimentary "Killed to death by a fucking hippo" tombstone. That sort of thing is really embarrassing for the family, you know?

* Spotted hyenas, ugly, sloping backed, cowardly, vicious scavengers right? Wrong. Not only are they apex predators (''lions'' scavenge off ''them'' as much as the other way around), they're the most social animals in their whole biological order, and on a par there with some apes, can hold their own against lions to the point that the two species delineate their territories (usually only done intra-species), and have been known to eat (but not digest) aluminium pots and pans. * ''Stegosaurus''. Famous for having a small brain and a [[BewareMyStingerTail flexible tail armed with meter-long spikes]] which could injure the fiercest predators, as fossils of ''Allosaurus'' with spike-inflicted wounds showed. It was also surprisingly agile for its slow speed and heavy due to having powerful front legs shorter than the hind ones, which is necessary for its defense mechanism. [[/folder]]

* [[Characters/GLOrangeLanternCorps Larfleeze]], the wielder of the orange light in the Franchise/GreenLantern universe. Most of the time, he comes off as completely insane, with a Gollum-like drive to own ''everything'' and a tendency to talk to himself. At one point, SelfDemonstrating/{{Sinestro}} and [[Characters/GLRedLanternCorps Atrocitus]] get so annoyed by him they suggest just killing him and taking along whoever his ring goes to next. Despite his {{Cloudcuckoolander}} tendencies, however, he's incredibly powerful, as his light represents avarice, and is at its most potent when wielded by one lone ringslinger. In terms of sheer raw power, he's probably the strongest Lantern as his ring is capable of charging to ''100,000 percent energy''- in comparison, Hal Jordan's maxes out around 210% under certain circumstances, and it's explained any more might blow up the ring and take his hand with it. Insane? Yes. Take him lightly, though, and you're dead.
