** All of the kids take a level or several dozen in/by chapters 59 and 60. Harry is, by this point, capable of sending a moderately powerful Winter Fae running for its life, before blasting it out of the sky. Carol is capable of coming up with an on the fly plan which Uhtred comments would impress Sif. And then, after the temporary PlotRelevantAgeUp, [[spoiler: Harry's pummelling supersized werewolves to mush, burning holes in mountains, flying, punking Project Ultimatum, a proto Destroyer that flies from the Colorado Rockies to well East of Moscow and impressing Baron Zemo, who compliments him, Diana's tearing Project Ultimatum apart with her bare hands while Zemo is trying to use it to incinerate her, Jean-Paul's showing how deadly rocks thrown at mach speeds can be, Uhtred's treating a giant werewolf trying to eat him as an inconvenience - he's mainly annoyed that no one else is paying attention, Carol's shown such potential as a [[TheStrategist strategist]] that the fucking Winter Soldier notices, and his analytical Soldier personality suggests that she is the main threat, as she's holding the others together as a group, and must be eliminated. While the Bucky side of the Soldier objects, violently]] it's a real mark of how badass you are that, on a battlefield with three {{PhysicalGod}}s, two of whom possess raw strength/power in the Thor range, one of which has a lot of combat training, the other of which has some and is excellent at [[IndyPloy improvising]], the third of which is the protégé of Sif herself with a very big axe, and a potentially very dangerous speedster, with only basic peak human[=/=]SuperSoldier abilities, you're considered the main threat by [[spoiler: the Winter Soldier himself]].
*** By chapter 70, Harry can mow through a HYDRA assault force [[spoiler: before getting temporarily killed by Daken.]] Having learnt his lesson, by chapter 74 he can [[BulletDodgesYou stop bullets in midair]], hold a HYDRA assault force at gunpoint with their own weapons and deliver a bitter WorldOfCardboardSpeech without missing a beat, and by chapter 75 he [[spoiler: flattens Daken in their rematch]] and the only thing that causes him problems is [[PhysicalGod Gravemoss]]. Also, [[spoiler: Jean-Paul's a more ruthless version of the Flash and Carol becomes the Green Lantern]].

* ''Fanfic/CommonSense'' features both Ash and Team Rocket repeatedly becoming better in order to keep up with each other. Notably, Ash wins each of his gym battles with skill rather than luck and [[CurbStompBattle utterly thrashes Lt. Surge's Raichu]]. On the other side, Team Rocket has more Pokemon such as Gyarados, Fearow, and Beedrill and aren't above [[CombatPragmatist ganging up on enemies, attacking both trainers and bystanders, and attacking enemy Pokemon themselves]].
