* ''Series/TheIncredibleHulk'': Basically OncePerEpisode, someone has the bad idea of threaten, harass or harm David Banner... until he [[HulkingOut transforms into]] the titular character and goes after his offenders, who have an OhCrap moment when seeing a tall,green, muscular guy roaring at them.

* ''OneStepBeyond'' had an interesting version - In "The Burning Girl", Alice is a quiet, put-upon young woman accused of starting fires and getting into (sexual) trouble. Fires do start when she's around, but not the way people think, and she doesn't remember what happens. It's only after a row with her aunt and a near-rape by a local that the truth of her pyrokinetic abilities comes out.

* This is a regular occurrence on ''Series/{{Grimm}}''. Wesen look like regular humans until they woge into their natural form so frequently a criminal will end up missing an arm or a head before he knows what hit him. In one instance a mugger makes the mistake of trying to rob a harmless looking elderly lady who also happens to be a legendary criminal killing monster. In turn, many Wesen were in for a rough surprise when they attack Nick, an average looking police detective, and discover that he is a Grimm, the boogieman Wesen mothers scare their children with. Since Wesen can't normally spot whether someone is a human or an unwogen Wesen, you sometimes also get situations where a Wesen finds out that he just attacked another, much more powerful Wesen. In one case, a nigh-immortal Wesen comes out of the ground only once every seven years to party and find a fat person to feed on for the next seven years. This time, he picks up an overweight woman, kills her boyfriend, takes her to his park, and knocks her out. Then Nick, [[spoiler:Hank, and Wu]] show up, but the Wesen overpowers all three. Then a larger Wesen appears from behind and ''bites his head off''. Whoops. Probably shouldn't have hit her on the head so hard.
** Happens in full hilarity because viewers know just how poorly it's going to go for [[spoiler:The person who tries to get at Sean by kidnapping Diana. Made even more funny by Sean starting to panic, before he realises that [[PityTheKidnapper it isn't his daughter who's going to need the rescuing]].]]

** The A-plot of the same episode is also an example; a Wesen wants revenge on Nick for arresting his father, which happened prior to Nick discovering his powers. He's very surprised to discover Nick's friends are Wesen, and goes to his death without ever learning Nick is a Grimm. Hank observes that if he ''had'' known that, he probably wouldn't have tried anything.

* ''Series/IronFist2017'': Colleen Wing is ambushed by four people, she easily fights them off... [[SubvertedTrope and then it turns out they were her students]], and this was a field exercise. She gives them a severe tongue-lashing for failing. [[spoiler:This serves as foreshadowing for later revelations. Most kendo classes don't teach stealth-ambush and pursuit tactics]].

** Also happens with Nucky Thompson. He discovers someone is robbing him of his goods. At first, he thinks it's one of his many enemies, instead, he finds out it's a young man by himself. During the whole episode, it seems like the young man [[TheCharmer is winning Nucky Thompson over]] and eventually asks to join his crew. Instead, Thompson kills him when the guy doesn't see it coming. Thompson also does this as a warning to one of his men.

** Played with in the episode "Shadows", in which Lauren Tyte is a rather shy and pretty much harmless secretary who, due to various corporate malfeasances on the part of her weapons-manufacturer employer, is targeted by numerous assassins. Unfortunately, what these assassins ''don't'' know is that she's also being haunted by a very angry, very vengeful and ''very'' protective spirit who is a lot less harmless...
