Many times in any action manga, the main character is stuck in a helpless fight against
an enemy several times stronger than he is and he has no chance at winning.
The solution? He magically awakens, thanks to a convienient power-up from the author,
and is finally able to reach his true potential, which he uses to promptly curbstomp the opponent.
However! Beelzebub isn't a normal action manga, as this manga is also a comedy.
Jabberwock believes this is a typical action sequence as he attributes Oga's
hidden strength to being awakened. He is wrong as Oga points out
Jabberwock's idea to be stupid, since it is instead the power of trying harder, the father switch.
Yea, this is. Just get this: Jabberwock thinks Oga is getting awakened like any other cliched protagonist. Oga admits that isn't it and he is only trying harder since he must win.

Actually it just has to do with the genre. This is comedy, the key
is to keep people guessing and guessing wrong, surprising people
and getting them to laugh. Hence father switch w.
Who would expect it to mean what it does?
