** [[{{Disney/Pinocchio}} The Blue Fairy]] becomes the BigGood and is able to use fairy dust to help the protagonists in battle.
** A smaller case with Princess Anna from ''{{Disney/Frozen}}''. It's established that she knows how to sword fight, a skill she didn't display in the film (not that she was ever in a situation where she would ''need'' to demonstrate it). She and Kristoff become a BattleCouple once or twice, and she was the one who trained Charming. She explains that she learned from her soldiers after the film.

* Evelyn Carnahan in ''Film/TheMummyTrilogy''. In the first film, she is able to hold off most of her attackers (not so much a fully rejuvenated mummy, however), but not necessarily fight back. By the second film, she knows how to use Katanas and Sais, and aim guns with deadly accuracy thanks to living with an ex-legionaire for ten years and starting to remember her previous life as an Egyptian Princess
