* Sans from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is, at a glance, a skeleton in a blue hoodie, sports shorts and slippers who would rather lounge around, make silly jokes and hang out with his friends at the local monster bar and restaurant than try to capture the Human Child. Despite this, [[spoiler:he's the single strongest monster in the entire Underground, and if you try to kill everyone, he ''will'' [[ThatOneBoss give you a bad time]].]] Combined with the fact that [[spoiler:he's thwarted Flowey's plans more than once, there's a broken-down time machine hidden in his bedroom, and he seems to be aware of the game mechanics and the save system]], and an awful lot of fans are left convinced that Sans [[AmbiguouslyHuman isn't even actually a monster at all]]. One thing's for certain, though: whatever his story is, there's a lot more to it than what's shown in the game.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' gives us Lion, Steven's pet, er, lion. During one of the Gems' missions, Steven found him in the middle of the desert and decided to follow him home. He's pink, is constantly eating or sleeping, is extremely apathetic about anything that doesn't involve a direct command from Steven, can run on water, creates portals with the force of his roars that once extended to a Diamond base on the moon, and regularly wanders off to leave for days only to be inexplicably back at Steven's house sometime later. While some of his abilities seem like something only a Gem can do, no stone has ever been found on his body, is refered to with male pronouns, has the bubbled form of Bismuth, a tape, and various possessions of Rose's left behind in his mane, and took Steven and Connie to Rose's old armory to train Steven. It's clear that Rose had a close association with him, but with her own mysterious past and the shattering of Pink Diamond, it's unknown if he's a Gem, a construct, or what.

** Also Bun-bun. A badass talking [[KillerRabbit rabbit]] with a bad attitude, a switchblade, and a glock he pulls out from [[{{Hammerspace}} nowhere]]. The only clues we've had to his past so far is that he's been thrown out of time once before by Santa Claus, his mother was probably killed in front of his eyes, and he was put back into the right timeline by Uncle Time who admits it was just somewhere in the right 'ballpark'.

* Dr. Henry Killinger from ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''. Even though other characters on the show have magical powers, Killinger is clearly a cut above everyone else, especially because nothing about him is ever explained. He inexplicably knows everyone's backstory and most secret desires, he can magically cure herpes and pull anything he needs out of his Magic Murder Bag, and despite his name and costume, he seems to be single-mindedly promoting happiness and helping people realize their potential. He can fly on an umbrella like Mary Poppins, and at one point his ''face appears in the stars'' and quotes Shakespeare. It's also heavily implied he's just Henry Kissinger, and always has been.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'':
** Goku at the start of the series. Nothing was known about his past other than he was found in the mountains by his grandfather and was raised in isolation for a number of years. Other than that, everything about Goku was up in the air like why he was so powerful, had a tail, and why did he turned into a big ape during a full moon. His friends and enemies openly debated if he was even human. By ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', we learned he's a HumanAlien from a warrior race and he's actually a weakling by their standards. Even then, his ungodly strength and seemingly endless potential still isn't fully explain given he outpaces the Saiyan Prince, who is said to be ''the'' strongest their race have to offer. Part of it is a lot of hard work, but, as the series has shown, hard work alone can't catch natural talent unless it isn't maintain.
** Goku's father, Bardock. Despite being born and classified as a lower class Saiyan, he has a power level around 10,000 before he died. For reference, Goku didn't get that high until he trained with King Kai and he was still only around 8 to 9,000 without the Kaioken. That also makes him much stronger than Nappa, an elite solider. In fact, he's about as strong as King Vegeta. Some of this is explained as Bardock regularly coming back from missions half-dead.
** For decades, no one knew why Frieza and his family were so powerful. His power was so unrivaled that it took a legend to defeat him and every villain afterwards were either demonic in nature or created to be the strongest in the universe. It's not until a 2014 interview that we learn that Frieza's family are mutants among their race and Frieza himself is a prodigy even among them.
** Majin Buu was at first thought to be a magical creation of the wizard Bibidi, but it turns out he just ''summoned'' Buu. In truth Buu is as old as the universe and ''no one'' knows where he comes from or why he is so strong.
** Beerus. He is a god among gods and nothing is really known about him. It's implied that Beerus could have been a mortal at one point given that Whis offers Goku the job of God of Destruction once Beerus dies.
** Whis, Beerus' assistance, is even worse. He isn't a god as far as we know, but [[spoiler: he's stronger than Beerus and have the power to rewind time for the entire universe]]. When Vegeta asks exactly what Whis is, he's given a non-answer.
* Done mildly in ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'' with Hiruma. Just about all we know about his past is that he has a strained relationship with his father, has been living in a hotel since he was in middle school, and used to spend his time hanging out at a military base. None of this explains his endless supply of firearms, ability to blackmail people on an international level, or even why he has elf ears. His existence is simply crazy awesome.

The only hint about who, or rather ''what'', he might actually be comes from WordOfGod stating that the direction they were going for when portraying him was to make him come across as [[HumanoidAbomination something that has assumed]] AFormYouAreComfortableWith, but doesn't care if you're convinced enough by the act to ''remain'' comfortable with it.

He can, for example, keep up with a speeding train. On foot. And he is shown to be immune to Ryutaros mind control, possessing a similar ability himself. What makes this character especially awesome is his stoic and calm way of acting, while doing all of his unexplained stuff.
