The TVTropes Trope Finder is where you can come to ask questions like "Do we have this one?" and "What's the trope about...?" Trying to rediscover a long lost show or other medium but need a little help? Head to You Know That Show and try your luck there. Want to propose a new trope? You should be over at You Know, That Thing Where.
3 Mar 19th, 2017 at 8:08PMIs there a trope where a badass character has had their strength limited in some way (drugged, illness, power limiter) but is still much stronger than was expected and still outfighting their forces? Like a strong character is drugged but still doing exceptional feats of strength. Or a character with exceptional intelligence with an inhibitor in place is still at least twice as smart as everyone. Not necessarily showing how much indomitable will the character has as that they are just that powerful and maybe never shows it.
