Compare ObfuscatingStupidity, LetsGetDangerous, CowardlyLion, and NotSoHarmlessVillain, where actually competent characters who have been hiding their powers finally reveal their abilities. {{Xenafication}} is when this happens to TheChick. MagikarpPower is when this is achieved through lots of LevelGrinding.

LevelGrinding. FromNobodyToNightmare is the EvilCounterpart of this trope.

MagikarpPower is when this is achieved through lots of LevelGrinding. Contrast BadassDecay, when a previously badass character ends up losing this level.

LevelGrinding.


Added DiffLines:

BadassDecay is for the ''subjective'' situation where a character seems less badass than they were due to CharacterizationMarchesOn. That is not to be confused with a situation where a character becomes weaker ''as a plot point'', as then it's simply an {{Inversion}} of this trope.
