** Unfortunately for Festus, several of his opponents (notably Wrestling/TheMiz and Wrestling/JohnMorrison) have shown themselves to be fairly GenreSavvy in using this against him.
*** Wrestling/DoinkTheClown (when he started out) was an evil version of this trope.

Added DiffLines:

* Inevitable ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'' example: Generator (Jade Sinclair) looks like a joke character, with her [[CuteButPsycho adorable child-like appearance]], [[MadScientist silly-looking techno-toys]], endless pranks, and love of Franchise/HelloKitty. She is also the battle-hardened tactical genius who gives the combat instructors nightmares, strikes fear in the hearts of super-powered school bullies, and once wiped out a Syndicate hard-site pretty much single-handedly.

* ComicBook/SquirrelGirl, hands down. Cute. Fuzzy. Talks to squirrels. Lips taste like hazelnuts. Defeated Doctor Doom [[note]]which, before you ask, was ''not'' retconned as being ActuallyADoombot[[/note]], The Mandarin, Giganto, ComicBook/{{MODOK}}, {{Thanos}}, Terrax, Bug-Eyed Voice, Bi-Beast, ComicBook/{{Deadpool}}, Pluto, Fin Fang Foom, Baron Mordo, Korvac, and Ego the Living Planet...

* ''[[Film/PoliceAcademy Police Academy 5: Assignment Miami Beach]]'' had Commendant Lassard being kidnapped and held hostage by the BigBad. He mistakenly thinks it's all a game being put on for the media, and when someone points out that it's not, he rather quickly frees himself without breaking a sweat.

* ComicBook/{{Deadpool}} sometimes slips into this, DependingOnTheWriter. His {{Cloudcuckoolander}} tendencies and ability to both shake off bodily harm and make a joke of it tend to obscure the fact that he is an immortal, unstoppable, superhuman killing-machine with a penchant for inventively torturing and/or brutally slaughtering anyone who manages to get on his bad side. In the ''ComicBook/DeadpoolKillsTheMarvelUniverse'' miniseries, he singlehandedly slaughters nearly every superhero on the planet. This is caused when [[spoiler:Psycho-Man fiddled with Deadpool's brain until something clicked, turning him into the perfect killing machine with a penchant for nihilism. He resolvesto destroy reality itself, believing that it never mattered anyway, due to him being aware that he is a comic book character.]] This is proof that he isn't just being capable of fighting A-list Marvel heroes and villains, he is capable of '''murdering every single one with ease'''.

Added DiffLines:

* Hercule/Mr Satan from Manga/DragonBall, according to ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle''. Yes, he is a bumbling idiot in his own series... [[CantCatchUp compared to the Z Fighters, that is]]. Compared to aliens as well as fighters trained in using Ki for powerful martial arts magic he simply can't compare, but as a completely normal human without Ki [[BadassNormal he is one of the best fighters in the franchise]]. [[spoiler: This is why he beat Dan Hibiki who is a complete joke of a martial artist.]]

* Natalie Voss, the rich girl in ''TheChase''. Kidnapped at a convenience store, she begs for her life, vomits in terror, and [[ScreamingWoman shrieks so loudly and shrilly]] that her suave, dark-haired kidnapper (who else but Creator/CharlieSheen?) [[PityTheKidnapper can just barely tolerate her]]. As the getaway car heads to Mexico and Natalie gets to know her captor a lot more, learning that he's actually an unjustly accused criminal acting out of desperation, she not only [[StockholmSyndrome grows to like him]] but realizes that he's her ticket out of her stiflingly buttoned-down existence. When Sheen's character is finally caught just short of the border, Natalie sees him getting hauled into a police car in handcuffs and, realizing this is her last chance to escape her former life, and despite never having handled a gun before and in fact [[DoesntLikeGuns finding guns repellent]], steals a gun from one of the police officers, puts him in a headlock...and after her father scolds her for [[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt pretending to defy him]], shoots a nearby hovering helicopter right out of the sky with one shot from the pistol. This sudden feat takes ''everyone'' aback - not least of all Natalie herself, who for a moment can do nothing but stare saucer-eyed at her handiwork as if to say, [[FamilyMatters "Did I do that?"]]

* Taiga in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' is a silly SenseiChan who spends most of her time at the house of one of her students, begging for food. When a random girl shows up, apparently freeloading, Taiga demands they duel for Shirou, at which point it is revealed that she is a world-class kendo champion. However, her opponent is a knight from the middle ages who lived and died by the sword, and was considered one of the best sword fighters in the world in an era when ''everyone'' was a sword fighter. [[OvershadowedByAwesome Taiga gets disarmed in under a second]].

** And played straight with [[TheHero Shirou]], for that matter, whose AmbiguousDisorder makes him eccentric, helpful, and self-sacrificing. And also means that he has enough HeroicWillpower to [[PersonalityPowers break reality.]]
