* In the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' franchise, Stephen is always shown in a wheelchair, [[MrExposition provides necessary exposition]], developed essential tools for combating demons such as the Demon Summoning Program, and can heal the player's party. Beyond that, he doesn't do much. In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'', [[spoiler:not only does he reveal himself to be capable of offensive abilties in combat, but, as part of a SecretTestOfCharacter to Nanashi and the protagonists of the previous four mainline ''SMT'' games, he can also stand up just fine and become the hardest BonusBoss in the game at level 128, putting him at an even higher level than YHVH (100), the game's FinalBoss!]]

The situation varies from example to example. A common example is for a character to fight with their non-dominant hand, as in the [[Film/ThePrincessBride trope-naming example]], only to switch back to their dominant hand to gain an edge. Similar to this is pretending that they have a serious handicap, then deciding to stop the charade. It can also go so far as a character revealing that they have always had a superpower [[EleventhHourSuperpower which they now decide to exploit]], or a DangerousForbiddenTechnique which they now [[GodzillaThreshold have no option but to utilize]]. The most common subversions are for the other character to also be not left-handed, or for the character to remark, "Yes I am," after he switches hands. (Or if the writer is [[NoManOfWomanBorn being subtle]] about [[DoubleSubversion doubling up]] on this trope, that the character is later revealed as [[SesquedipelianLoquatiousness ambidextrous]] a.k.a '''[[OhCrap "both-handed"]]'''.)

* In ''ComicBook/DetectiveComicsRebirth'', Batman confronta Lady Shiva, and points out that he's beaten her before (due to her status as an AdaptationalWimp post-Flashpoint). She responds that she had been simply playing a role, and no longer has a reason to pretend to be weak. She then proceeds to wipe the floor with him.

* At the beginning of ''Knife of Dreams'' in the WheelOfTime series, Galad deliberately holds back for most of his fight with Eamon Valda, attacking and parrying a bit more slowly than he could have. Then, at the end of the fight, he goes all out.
