* The final battle of ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon 2}}'' has [[spoiler: the player face off against Callie and DJ Octavio with assistance from Marie and Sheldon. Once Callie's shaken off the hypnoshades' lingering effects after Marie shoots them off, she jumps off of the Octobot King II, and]] Sheldon issues a non-exploding Rainmaker [[spoiler:with which to finish Octavio off]].

* The third part of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' features Star Platinum, Kujo Jotaro's Stand, who has a very short range, so it should be very powerful... but he only seems to have an outstanding speed, great strength, and surprising sight and precision. [[spoiler:On the last fight against Dio, [[TimeStandsStill the stand-using vampire who can stop time]], it's revealed that the apparent super speed of Star Platinum was in fact ''its own ability to briefly stop time''. Epic ensues.]]
** A villainous example occurs in Part 4, when the final arc, [[Music/{{Queen}} "Another One Bites The Dust"]] is kicked off when [[spoiler:the Stand-granting Arrow pierces the BigBad, Kira Yoshikage, granting him a second Stand ability, Killer Queen Bites The Dust. This ability transforms a person of his choice into [[ActionBomb a living bomb.]] If this person tells anyone about Kira's true identity, or if he's even questioned about the matter, Bites The Dust will immediately blow up everyone present who learned the identity. [[GroundhogDayLoop It then rewinds time by an hour.]] In this new timeline, the target will inevitably explode again, even if he doesn't talk to Bites the Dust's host again. It is described as an absolutely foolproof way for Kira to protect his identity, since it makes inquiring the host about it impossible, and since it then resets to a timeline where the inquiry didn't even happen, the host can't be traced to Kira either.]]

* In ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', every main villain gets access to one of these before the final battle except in parts 3 and 5 where it's the hero instead:
** In Part 1, Dio becomes able to shoot pseudo-EyeBeams at the very end of his penultimate fight with Jonathon, which plays a bigger role in the final battle as it allows Dio to attack Jonathon even after [[OffWithHisHead being reduced to a severed head]].
** The second part has Kars using the Stone Mask combined with the Red Stone of Aja to become [[UltimateLifeForm Ultimate Kars]].

** In Part 6, Pucci's Stand Whitesnake goes through one transformation earlier on into [[GravityMaster C-Moon]] [[spoiler: and then again before the finale into [[TimeManipulation Made In Heaven]] which at its peak basically has a limitless version of Star Platinum: The World's time-stopping ability]].
** Part 7 has Funny Valentine [[spoiler: combining his already overpowered Stand Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap with Lucy Steel's Stand's ability to redirect misfortune, creating [=D4C=] Love Train.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'', Dot has been having trouble being able to fly, but when she goes to find Flik and the circus bugs to get them back to the colony, [[DieOrFly she's able to do so]] ("Come on, wings. Fly, fly!") and reach them in time.



* In ''Film/SpaceJam'', UsefulNotes/MichaelJordan, despite playing like a regular basketball player most of the movie, suddenly develops, ironically, a WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes style body at the final seconds of the BigGame. This is right after he witnesses his human friend Stan Podolak get flattened like a pancake and subsequently inflated like a balloon. A twist on the trope in that Michael could have done that at ''any'' time, he just didn't ''know'' that until the game was almost over.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'''s Avatar gets more powerful versions of his/her Yato as the game progresses, but the 'final' upgrade always comes at the penultimate chapter, after Yato's current form fails to leave a scratch on the penultimate boss. Which form it takes depends on the route the Avatar takes, (Shadow, Blazing, or Omega) but the form that truly embodies this trope is Omega Yato, only possible on the ''Revelations'' route after all five divine weapons are reunited, the most effective weapon against the final boss, and [[spoiler: this game's Fire Emblem]].
*** In the final chapter of the ''Heirs of Fate'' DLC [[spoiler: the two Kanas combine their Shadow and Blazing Yatos to turn them both into Omega Yatos to defeat Anankos.]]

* Depending on your definition, there is one or two in the final level of ''VideoGame/TitanFall2''. For the on-foot section, you get the [=SMART=] Auto-Aim Pistol, allowing you to easily carve a path through the enemy troops. In your Titan, you get access to the Legion loadout, that gives your Titan a [[GatlingGood Predator Chaingun]], and allows it to temporarily activate its' own auto-aim abilities with its' core ability.

** The sequel ''VideoGame/XCOM2'' also features this. The last mission gives you a very powerful psy-soldier with a unique gun to boot and very useful psy abilities. The extra soldier also breaks the 6 team member limitation as the 7. soldier, which is a very helpful boost. [[NintendoHard And you will need it.]]
