* In the Italian remake of ''Fanfic/BattleFantasiaProject'' turns out [[SailorMoon Sailor Venus]] had been consciously holding back for the whole anime out of fear of being rejected by the other Sailor Senshi (as her friends in middle school had done when she had started dedicating herself to her duty as Sailor Venus). She explains it after her reaction to returning to life after Galaxia surrender and redemption and, before learning what had happened, decided to stop holding back and ''nearly killed [[WorldsStrongestWoman Galaxia]]'' (in fact the only reason she doesn't is that Artemis tells her what happened right before she can snap Galaxia's neck).

** Done by ''[=EarthForce=]'' during the conflict against the Ch'lonas, the Koulani and Drazi raiders. It was not by choice, as the conflict happened at the same time as the Earth-Minbari War and what they used to hold the line was what they could spare from [[HopelessWar the desperate attempts to slow the Minbari down while they tried to evaquate the Sol System and the Inner Colonies]]. Once the Minbari suddenly surrendered, however, the remnants of [=EarthForce=], augmented by the ships that had been put into production in the previous months and didn't need to be sent against the Minbari (whose numbers included the augmented variants of the ''Hyperion'' that had been sent against the Minbari and the brand-new ''Omega''-class destroyers), went after the Ch'lonas, the Koulani and Drazi raiders, and showed them the difference between what Earth could spare to fight jackals while also dealing with a HopelessWar and a battle-hardened force equipped with state-of-the-art weapons.

** ''Civil War'' also features War Machine, who mostly sticks to melee and repulsors (which have variable impact). Right up until [[spoiler:Ant-Man goes huge and tries to swing a bus at him, at which point War Machine unloads every single gun he has that's ''not a repulsor''. The bus basically disintegrates.]]

** After taking a hard hit from second-form Freeza, Piccolo ditches his weighted cape and powers up to a higher level. This gives him the advantage until Freeza one-ups him by going to his third form.

** Freeza is the franchise's absolute worst offender: One of our heroes finally has Freeza's measure? [[OneWingedAngel He just transforms to a stronger form.]] ''Three times.'' Later on, Goku is seemingly matching Freeza's strongest form - until Freeza reveals he's still not even using ''half'' his power. Goku assumes he's bluffing until Freeza goes up to 50% and starts kicking his ass all over again. Even after Goku turns Super Saiyan, Freeza has one more lengthy power-up sequence left as he goes all the way to 100%.
*** In Freeza's case, it's explained that he has difficulty controlling his true power and the transformations keep his power within manageable levels. This shows in Freeza rapidly burning out when he reaches 100% of his power.
*** Of course, at one point in the fight (after assuming his final form) Freeza ''intentionally'' gives himself a handicap, offering to fight Goku without using his hands, and he actually does for a while. He was likely just showing off, and stops doing it when Goku seems to be fighting better.

** Invoked in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' when Goku ends up in a tournament alongside Frost, an alternate version of Freeza from a parallel universe. When Frost claims his third form is his strongest, Goku doesn't buy it and accuses him of keeping a transformation in reserve for later matches. Not only does he ''know'' what Frost's true form would look like, he's doing the same thing himself.

* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', after Cisco learns to reliably produce Vibe blasts from his hands, he doesn't use them much. When he needs to take down [[spoiler:Killer Frost]], he is reluctant and holds back for fear of hurting [[spoiler:her]]. When Julian finally convinces him not to hold back, he rather easily wins a BeamOWar with [[spoiler:her]] and then blasts [[spoiler:her]] into unconsciousness. It's no wonder the Killer Frost and Deathstorm of Earth 2 were afraid of his double Reverb, who told Vibe that he had no idea how powerful he could become.

** Aizen deprives [[BadassGrandpa Yamamoto]] of his zanpakutou because of its reputation for being the most powerful offensive zanpakutou ''ever''. Yamamoto promptly reveals Aizen's error by unleashing hell with his bare fists and some of the story's most powerful kidou attacks.

* Michael Vick, considered one of the most athletic Quarterbacks in the history of the NFL, and one of the biggest WhatCouldHaveBeens, throws left handed, despite being right handed. He was so good as a child, the neighborhood kids made him throw with his left hand, and it stuck.

** To further illustrate this point, a lot of old school wrestlers-turned-trainers (such as Stu Hart) were legit amateur wrestlers and made a point of training their students to really wrestle and grapple fight.

*** The Princesses are ''constantly'' doing this, as their true cosmic power would be rather destructive if fully unleashed. For reference: Celestia is fully capable of using a solar flare to wipe out a planet if she wanted to.
