* Gouriki Banchou from ''Manga/KongohBanchou'', although quite small in comparison to everyone else (except the little kids), has a "hyperion constitution", which basically gives her superstrength and a super defense - she carries around two iron balls on sticks that are far larger than she is as her weapons, and [[spoiler: when she lands on spikes sharp enough to pierce her weapons, they ''bend'', leaving her unharmed]].

* Pai from the almost forgotten ''[[SazanEeyes 3x3 Eyes]]'' is a classic anime example of the girl who's happy being a cute, innocent little waif one moment, while running around and dispatching/vaporizing demons with her bare hands (granted, that petite little frame houses overwhelming mystical powers, not to mention [[spoiler:a split personality]]) and behaving in a totally cynical, badass manner the next.

* [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Katherine Armstrong]] is the only member of her family who isn't ripped with muscles and interested in fighting. Instead, she's good on the piano. [[SuperStrength Or, in her words, "Under the piano."]]
* [[LightNovel/{{Toradora}} Taiga]] [[OneHitKill uppercuts]] Ryuuji upon meeting him, then headbutts him in the final episode. She has 'CuteBruiser' written all over her!
** She's known by the nickname "Palmtop Tiger", a name that means "Small, but vicious". Like Ryuuji says during said meeting, it fits her perfectly.
* Wendy from ''Manga/FairyTail'', especially during the Edolas arc.

* Akane Tendo from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf''. Everyone who falls for her talks about her charm and grace and femininity and cuteness. They ignore the fact that she can shatter concrete walls with one punch or defeat groups of armed men with her bare hands. She also regularly punches Ranma a significant distance, and has effortlessly kicked a large metal globe like a football over a field.

* In ''HayateTheCombatButler'', Hinagiku Katsura is best known for being the pink-haired, romantically-clueless, and incredibly cute StudentCouncilPresident that often has her rather flat figure mocked...as well as being the KendoTeamCaptain and one of the only characters that can keep up with Hayate's athleticism and combat skill. She may not have Hayate's MadeOfIron UpToEleven (probably), but Hayate trusts her to back him up without worrying about her (too much anyway) since not much can face up to her in melee combat, especially once she breaks out the magic swords.

** [[TheMedic Tony Tony Chopper's]] standard form [[FunnyAnimal (a reindeer/human hybrid)]] is incredibly cute and innocuous-looking. But in battle, [[VoluntaryShapeshifting he can change from this small, adorable form to five other forms at will]]. From a giant impenetrable ball of fur to a hulking humanoid. [[spoiler: Overdosing on Rumble Balls also gives him access to his DeadlyUpgrade, [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever an absolutely massive abomination]]. [[NightmareFuel Eep]]. Post TimeSkip, he only needs one Rumble Ball to access the form and he can ''[[TookALevelInBadass control it]]'']]. Don't judge a book by its cover...

* Misaki Yata of ''Anime/{{K}}''. He [[OlderThanTheyLook looks like a kid]] - an easily excited, [[CannotTalkToWomen blushing]], skateboarding kid. So it's easy for opponents to underestimate him - until he shows them that he knows what to do with that baseball bat. The [[PlayingWithFire flame powers]] help, too.

* Kaoru Konoe from ''GateKeepers''. While most of the cast look ordinary enough except for their Gate powers, Kaoru fits the trope best. As keeper of the Gate of Pursuit, she can enhance her physical abilities to superhuman levels, with all the cliches that implies.

* The title character of ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' is an adorable teen girl...and also a merciless fighter who shreds Lovecraftian abominations like they're made of tissue paper. Of course, she's also the human form of Nyarlathotep the Crawling Chaos, one of the most powerful beings in the CthulhuMythos.

* Francesca from ''Manga/{{Trash}}'' is a KindheartedCatLover who's also a BigEater plus a bit of {{Cloudcuckoolander}}. But her petite body hides enough strength to cleave a person in two, in addition to modifications that make parts of her body practically NighInvulnerable.
