That Clueless Hero comic does nail my childhood frustration when recruiting a big baddie. If I didn’t have such a short attention span as a kid, I would of noticed the fine details. My case in point: Chrono Trigger

*SPOILERS FOR A 25 YEAR OLD GAME*

Magus was built up to be this big bad guy from simple misinterpretation(that he corrects), and as the plot deepens into the history of the true baddie, not only do you learn that you share the same goal as him, but he was more tragic than he looked. Solid characterization for a last-minute addition, plus the choice you’re given. Now, if you do recruit him(the canon decision apparently), for a boss you fought in a lengthy dungeon and has a whopping 6666 HP with his timeless(battle)theme, you’d think you would easily win the game, right? Nope! Especially when you look at his available skills. From Dark Bomb and Dark Matter from that boss battle suddenly vacant, he only has his 3 elemental skills. While he does get them back with some new spells in the mix, it’s quite a grind. During his futile encounter with Lavos, he yells out of his powers being drained. I remember other players sharing similar grievances on this logic when it was already briefly explained.

*END SPOILERS

Imo, while not really a baddie, Jade from Tales of the Abyss did this “OP but lost his powers” trope pretty well. Whatever the thing was, it was that suppressed his powers shortly later in the plot after you meet him and is gradually broken down as he levels up and learns new skills. This is probably because he joins the party so early in the game and you learn more of him along the way.
