* During one episode of ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'', the Shinsengumi encounters one of these... who not only lays claim to enormous feats of blood-soaked bravery, but also [[IdentityImpersonator the name of 'Battosai']]. In other words, he's claiming to be Kenshin, the man who basically saved the country singlehandedly, but retired from his killing ways to be a man of peace. Kenshin doesn't particularly care, but his friends are incensed when they find that the fake has been pressing the local shopkeepers for money based on his proclaimed reputation. In the end, a professional killer shows up wanting a fight with the 'Battosai', however, and the fake is proven quite incapable of actually fighting... however, the Shinsengumi winds up forgiving him, when they find out that he's been using his drummed up reputation AND the money it's earned him, to [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold run and protect an orphanage]].

* Woodney from ''Manga/BlackCat'', also IdentityImpersonator.
* Mr. Satan (Hercule in the U.S.) from ''Anime/DragonBallZ''.
** Hits FakeUltimateHero as he gains more character development. At least, he proves to be braver than he looks.
*** Mr. Satan also ''is'' an impressive fighter ... for an ordinary human with no ''ki'' powers. He'd probably have been very effective against most of the villains from ''Manga/DragonBall'', at least prior to the arrival of Demon King Piccolo (and with exception of Herr General Blau, who was able to fight on par with freaking Goku). It's just that pesky Z that disqualifies him (and it doesn't help that when he realizes he's outmatched he becomes a complete coward). He did win the World Martial Arts championship, and demonstrated various displays of strength in his introduction, so while he may not be on par with any of the main cast, he's probably the seventh strongest human alive at the time of his introduction (With Krillin, Yamcha, Tien, Master Roshi, Yajirobi, and Chou-Tzu being 1-6).
*** He is also the only person who manages to tame Majin Buu. At one point Goku even points out that this alone makes him worthy of being Earth's champion.
*** He also manages to get Kid Buu to spit out his good counterpart thereby buying Goku and Vegeta more time. And puts his fame to good use by telling the people of Earth that they damn well better contribute their energy to Goku's Spirit Bomb to finally kill Kid Buu, after most are dubious when it's the far lesser-known Goku making the request. The people of Earth comply.

* Jean-Claude Magnum from ''Anime/YuGiOh''. An action/adventure movie star, he would have everyone believe that he's the same as his characters. He isn't even close. In fact, Jonouchi (a legitimately {{badass}} street-fighter...[[BadassDecay before card games became the exclusive focus of the series]]) was originally a fan of his, but completely lost any respect for him after he was beaten by Mai in a duel, tried to kidnap her, and ''then'' acted like a DirtyCoward when Mai was in danger (and ''she'' never had anything but contempt for him to begin with).

* Subverted with Nanael from ''Manga/QueensBlade''. Yeah, yeah, glorious, strong, smart, perfect. Then why are you so skittish around danger, hmmm? Play it cool. Oh look, here come the bad guys, and its time to live up to your talk. And these ain't mooks. You've got Melona who's basically the [[{{Franchise/Terminator}} T-1000]] except harder to kill, you've got an ancient spell-casting necromancer princess, and a scythe-wielding ghost girl with an army of evil spirits at her command. They give many of our main characters trouble one-on-one. You've gotten yourself into a mess this time, girl. And... she blows the ghost girl and her evil spirits up with a slice. Then hammers the revived ancient necromancer princess in the face. Then turns our resident T1000 into a goo tornado with a drill kick, sending the ghost girl and ancient princess right along with her. Pretty much effortlessly. Then she flexes her arm, places her other hand on her bicep, and declares "Nanael is so cool!" Yeah, it turns out that not only is Nanael not the MilesGloriosus, she is easily the strongest character that we've seen fight to date. She had to be [[DramaPreservingHandicap nerfed in season 2 just to give the protagonist a chance at winning the tourney]].

Added DiffLines:

* Carta Issue of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans''. She commands the Outer Earth Orbit Regulatory Joint Fleet and hams it up, using her position to order Gaelio around and behaving as though she's holding the thin red line between Earth and all the enemies of the solar system. Her position, while carrying some authority over the power blocs, is actually a ceremonial one and her forces have never been in a true battle. When she attempts parade-ground battle formations against Tekkaden, they wipe the floor with her.
