* ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice''. Bruce Wayne has a nightmare (implied to be a vision of a potential BadFuture) in which Superman has turned evil and Batman is working with LaResistance. Having already shown at the very least indifference to his previous ThouShaltNotKill policy during the course of the movie, the BadFuture Batman carries an assault rifle and sidearm, using them without hesitation on Superman's soldiers.

* Like ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' example above, the [[WesternAnimation/TheUltimateEnemy Timeline-based]] ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' TV movie has several Future Badasses. The biggest is [[PsychoForHire Dark Danny]], who is now the most powerful ghost on the planet or as Sam puts it "...okay, you're ''really'' a [[UnderStatement jerk]]." Well, that is certainly a mild way to put it-he becomes a rampaging [[PsychoForHire Sociopath]] who kills people and destroys things [[ForTheEvulz apparently just for kicks]]. The episode in which Danny sees what he [[BadFuture would become]] and is [[FutureMeScaresMe extremely horrified]] is one of the darkest, yet most highly acclaimed episodes of the series.
** ''[[HarmlessVillain The Box Ghost]]'', who can now generate powerful boxes of energy to throw at people, went from being fat to being very muscular, and now has [[EyepatchAfterTimeSkip an eyepatch]] and HookHand.
--> ''[[OhCrap Beware...]]''

* In Season 2 ''Series/{{Danger 5}}'' are stuck with ValleyGirl Holly as TheLoad. After time-traveling back to WorldWarII, they return to TheEighties only to find history has changed and Hitler has taken over the world. Then they're rescued by Danger One, a BadAss Holly raised and trained by the Colonel to help them [[SeriesGoal kill Hitler]]. Right after she explains this, [[NegatedMomentOfAwesome the trope gets subverted when normal Holly blows her head off]] with her EvilHand that's being controlled by Hitler.

* Reversed, somewhat, in ''ViolinistOfHameln'' with Clari Net. Clari has yet to demonstrate any real prowess--only talk--when Trom and Flute come across a mirror that shows the past, and a scene with a pathetic-looking crying boy. The end of the flashback reveals the boy to be Clari. Cue adult!Clari [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome taking out an army of dragons. Singlehandedly.]]

* In ''XCOMEnemyUnknown'', Bradford is a neat, clean cut, by the book man in tie and sweeter. By the events of ''XCOM2'', he's become a grizzled, cynical, hard-drinking BadassGrandPa with CoolScars. Not to say he wasn't tough in the first game, but in the second he seriously TookALevelInBadass

* The [[GainaxEnding ending]] of ''{{Mahoromatic}}'' has the main character become this, much to the consternation of many fans.

* ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock''. Static becomes one of the most powerful DC heroes, as glimpsed in an episode where he meets his future self working alongside Terry [=McGinnis=] (the Batman of the future from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'') and in a two-part episode of ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'' where the present-day League travels to the WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond-era future and interact with the remaining future League members, including an [[CoolOldGuy older version of Static, who remains in top fighting condition thanks to future medicine ("65 is the new 30"). Adult Static also alludes to Richie/Gear--who in the present usually functions as the PluckyComicRelief--having become a major FutureBadass in his own right as well, and we're very briefly given a glimpse of this (though he has also become somewhat overweight, hence Static telling Gear when he returns to the past to "lay off the fries."
