* In ''Weboriginal/RedVsBlue'' the Director is built up to be the reason everything bad has happened in the series for 10 years. He turns out to be a tired old man watching the last video of his dead wife on a loop and the heroes deem him too pathetic to be worth killing.

* Toward the end of ''Comicbook/{{Preacher}}'', we learn that the true leadership of [[AncientConspiracy the massive Grail conspiracy]] was not [[FatBastard Allfather D'Aronique]] but rather the Secret Council, who are a bunch of dweeby-looking old guys in silly robes who live in a dingy cave; their appearance calling to mind stereotypical ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' players rather than evil masterminds. They last less than an issue before [[DragonWithAnAgenda Herr Starr]] [[BoardToDeath poisons them all]].

* TropeNamer: ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'', in that the titular "wizard" is only a normal man. Doubly so considering the flaming hologram avatar he was giving out.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': In "Jack and the Smackback", the Aqualizer is really a tiny, pathetic slug-like creature inside a powerful robotic suit.
* ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero'': Subverted in "The Gamesmaster". The Gamesmaster seems at first to just be a spoiled brat in a control room hiding behind his robots and traps. When Flint manages to fight past them and confront the man face to face, he's [[OhCrap shocked]] to find the man is over ten feet tall and incredibly strong.

** Darth Vader is an unusual example, as most of his scenes involve him being a terrifying badass without peer, but when he finally removes his mask he reveals himself as a frail, crippled old man wholly dependent on his robotic suit for his strength and intimidation factor, as well as to survive.

* Mr. Big in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' is the most feared [[TheMafia mafia boss]] in the eponymous city. Most of his goons are increasingly massive [[BearsAreBadNews polar bears]], so Judy naturally assumes [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking Mr. Big would be the biggest of them all]]...but he's actually a tiny arctic shrew.
