* An excellent example of this comes from ''Manga/DragonBall Z'', when Goku comes back after his first death. First Nimbus scoops Gohan up right out of the blue. Then everyone turns around to see Goku looking all BadAss as he's standing a few feet away.

**Earlier on, during the events of ''VideoGame/Sly3HonorAmongThieves'', we learn that Murray blamed himself for Bentley [[VideoGame/Sly2BandOfThieves being crippled by Clock-La]], and later left the team to go find [[TheAtoner inner peace]]. The entire first chapter of the game revolves around Sly and Bentley trying to stop the environmentally-unfriendly schemes of [[TheDon Octavio]] in order to get Murray back. It culminates with Bentley nearly getting killed by Octavio, which provides the push Murray needs to jump in and [[BigDamnHeroes save the day]].

* A truly epic example in ''Comicbook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns'' where Batman comes out of retirement after 10 years and [[BadassGrandpa is around his 60s.]] What we get are panels of him warring on horrified criminals, news reporters talking about a man dressed like a bat kicking the asses of criminals all over the city, among other reactions.

** The Light Side ending as well, but in a more subtle fashion. Instead of being the galaxy-conquering variety of {{Badass}}, you're the galaxy-''saving'' variety [[spoiler: that you were before the Mandalorian Wars and zero guidance got you DrunkOnTheDarkSide]].

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'': Upon arriving at [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Beast's Castle]], Sora, [[DonaldDuck Donald]], and {{Goofy}} are surprised to learn that their old buddy The Beast has a much larger stick up his ass than usual, as shown when he swats away both TheHeartless and the heroes to make sure his precious rose is safe, then leaves without a word. After multiple attempts to get him to stop obsessing about the rose that Xaldin stole and the fact that he believes himself to be a monster now, you finally get the {{Badass}} you had in the first game back after Sora reminds him of how it was before Belle showed up.
