** And speaking of Ramiel, this time it can shapeshift, blow up mountains, and take ''two'' hits instead of one before perishing.

* ''Manga/HajimeNoIppo'' pretty much has every major boxer go through this at least once throughout the plot. In particular, this is most apparant in series protagonist Ippo Makunouchi who started out as an ExtremeDoormat who was always getting beaten up daily by bullies but eventually becomes one of the best boxers in Japan.

** Misty's Psyduck in the Kanto reunion episodes of ''Sun and Moon''. Before, Psyduck was a total idiot, only able to do a trickle with its Water Gun attack and its powerful Psychic moves only come about because of headaches. When she brings him out again, his Water Gun is a ''lot'' more powerful and he can use his Psychic powers with ease, though he's hit with a DelayedReaction (Misty told him to use Confusion, but only remembered it when he landed on his head... then it took him a little bit longer to remember the fall on his head.)

** After the TimeSkip, Kaneki has gone from relatively weak to an incredibly powerful Ghoul. He's shown extensively studying and practicing different fighting techniques, as well as using [[BloodKnight Tsukiyama]] as his sparring partner. However, the trope is then deconstructed with the revelation of his less heroic means of becoming stronger: [[spoiler: cannibalizing other Ghouls in order to become [[InstantArmor a kakuja]]]]. Doing so takes an incredible toll of his already strained mind, and ends up costly him dearly.

* Shinichi Izumi from ''Manga/{{Parasyte}}'' also qualifies for this. He is infested by a parasite called Migi. At the beginning of the anime, he is a shy, almost frightened boy, but in the course of the action he becomes more and more a strong fighter. The fact that through Migi he becomes superhumanly strong, fast, and resistant, makes a difference.

** The entire first arc is all about Kenshiro taking a level in badass. He is defeated with ease by [[EvilFormerFriend Shin]], who mocks him for his lack of ambition/tenacity, kidnaps his girlfriend Yuria, and gives Ken his trademark seven scars. Kenshiro takes Shin's advice to heard and proceeds to go on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge, slaughtering Shin's entire army and eventually defeating the man himself.

** In TheMovie, we even get Nia piloting her own Ganmen in the final battle, who normally tends to not be one of the fighting characters, more serving as TheChick than as an actual pilot.
