* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', Steven gradually grows into his powers and gets used to the danger that comes with being a Crystal Gem (though he's still somewhere between an ActualPacifist and TechnicalPacifist whose "weapons" are impenetrable bubbles, a shield and healing saliva). Connie, after taking sword training lessons from Pearl, seems to be becoming a BadassNormal.

* Ludo from ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' spends all of Season 1 as a HarmlessVillain who never fights Star directly, and in the finale [[HumiliationConga he gets kicked out by his own minions, has his castle and army blown up, and finally he's thrown into another dimension]]. Once Season 2 starts, though, he manages to survive in the wilderness and tame a giant spider and eagle several times larger than him all by himself... and then he finds the other half of Star's fragmented wand crystal, giving him his own wand.

** Hell, [[Franchise/MyLittlePony the whole franchise]] got this treatment around 2010. While [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTVSpecials the 80s pilot specials]] and [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTheMovie the 1986 movie]] [[OlderThanTheyThink were no slouches in the badassery department]], the series got progressively more [[TastesLikeDiabetes diabetes-inducing]] after the movie. And then, [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyG3 after it got as non-threatening as you could get]], suddenly ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic this show]]'' comes onto the scene and takes the Internet by surprise just from how [[Awesome/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic awesome]] it could get. '''[[SerialEscalation And it shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.]]'''

* Harold in ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'' was a lanky geek who was constantly abused by his teammates, particularly the local JerkAss Duncan. In the [[TotalDramaAction second season,]] he is much more helpful to his team, saves the entire cast from drowing, and eventually gets his revenge on Duncan (by [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome punching his lights out]]).

* Aelita from ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'' spends the first two seasons as a DamselInDistress needing the protection of the HeroSecretService (and sometimes picking the DistressBall herself, to the point of being considered TheLoad by part of the fandom). Then by Season 3 she gains an attack power and no longer can be killed just by losing all her {{Hit Point}}s. Then she gains the abilty to sprout wings and fly. She also progressively gets more confident, turning into a full-fledged ActionGirl. She is still XANA's DesignatedVictim throughout Season 3 and 4 thanks to her MacGuffinGirl status, but now she's certainly fighting back.

** Twilight Sparkle over the course of the series goes from bookworm magiacal student with poor social skills to one of the most competent magicians in the series, repeated saviour of Equestria, and an [[spoiler: alicorn princess, and thus, big political figure]]. Even more so in the final of season 4, when she [[spoiler: takes on power of all four princesses and fights against Tirek, nearly Discord-level villain, in Dragon Ball-esque battle]]. Seriously.
