so i recently started watching classroom of the elites and the mc Ayanokouji, Kiyotaka is extremely cool headed and subtle but when he gets attacked he is a badass he purposefully lowballs on tests and so on and i was looking for an anime with a mc like that someone whos subtle but when he gets threatened or when he needs to do something he can show his true self the secrecy doesnt matter as long as hes a badass yet subtle character

to add a little more info i mean a character that looks defenseless but isnt he looks completely ordinary but then when he shows his badass side he is an insane badass but then returns to acting normal once the action is done

Sakamoto Desu Ga? The MC in that series is so badass/cool that it's hilarious

It's an old one but the MC is pretty much what you want. If you don't wanna watch something old, there is a reboot coming out Fall 2017, but it might not be as good as the original

Obligatory Berserk mention.
Atom: The Beginning had a pretty badass robot as one of the main characters. Not the best anime but it's worth a watch.
Akira too. Kaneda and Tetsuo are very badass and different than current anime characters. That one is definitely a must watch for anyone who wants to get more into anime.

To love ru darkness has this main heroine called Momo .
I prefer to be a humble dreamer, with visions to be realized, rather than the ruler of people with no dreams or desires.

Tsuna of KHR and Izuku of BnHA

They are somewhat timid but when the time called for it, they can be some major badass

The question isn't "What anime do you like?" That is merely a list.
The question is "Why do you like it?" That tells a story, your story.
Dubs are great.
Celebrate multimodality. Celebrate empathy. Celebrate Koe no Katachi.
The best Koe no Katachi review that isn't mine.

You should check out Hyouka. The mc Oreki is very intelligent but be always subtle the situation that might waste his time.

Subtle, as in one of the more quiet or aloof types? In addition to the stuff already mentioned, I can think of Akatsuki no Yona's main character and Ryougi Shiki of Kara no Kyoukai.

The calmest badass I have come across is Tsukikage Ran.

She is not out looking for trouble, just wants to be left alone and drink some sake.
But also for being a woman she is often not taken as a serious threat, villains can't keep from doing their evil deeds right under her nose, or bother her in whatever other way, and she will not have that.
