* 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 Kenshingumi 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]].

*** 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. 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).

* 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]].

* 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.

* Zonge in ''{{Toriko}}''. The first hint that he's actually a cowardly weakling of a Gourmet Hunter is that every dish on his Full Course has a very low capture level. Fortunately for him and his two followers he is just lucky enough to avoid getting them killed when he inevitably gets in over his head.

** In one episode of the Slayers Special OVA, Lina and Naga get hired by a woman to help out her son Jeffrey, who is a pathetic aspiring knight overconfident in his abilities. Jeffrey actually faints at the sight of blood, but luckily [[MamaBear his mother]] comes along in disguise and beats up anyone who badmouths her son with a warhammer.

* Subverted in ''AttackOnTitan'' by Oluo. He is an obnoxious and loud-mouthed jerk towards Eren, constantly giving him a hard time, so it's easy to believe he's all talk. After [[WorldsStrongestMan Levi]], he has the highest solo titan kills (39) in the elite squad.
