* Considering that, at least in PreCrisis continuity, [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Superboy]] first donned his costume at the age of eight, he could count as a male version. And he had his powers ''before'' that. One "superbaby" story did involve l'il toddler Clark accidentally almost [[EarthShatteringKaboom destroying the world.]]

* In the later chapters of ''{{Bone}}'', Thorn gains super strength among her powers as the Awakened One. She demonstrates this by picking up and throwing a large warrior--easily twice her weight--and by pulling the iron bars of her dungeon cell out of the wall.

* [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Mary Marvel]] would probably be one of the originals back in TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks, even predating Supergirl. However modern DC has her use the OlderAlterEgo just like her brother, making her more of a YoungerThanTheyLook ActionGirl.

* Molly from ''{{ComicBook/Runaways}}'', a super-strong mutant 11-year-old girl. Who takes this trope to fairly absurd levels what with her [[TheWorfEffect punishing Wolverine]] and her ability to rip a magically attached cloak through strength. Possibly the TropeNamer, as, though her chosen nickname is Princess Powerful, Chase calls her Bruiser. As for the cute part, well... she's cute.

What with those pretty animal beanies she's always wearing and all.

* The title character of ''ComicBook/MonicasGang'' is a seven-year-old little girl in a red dress, with cute little buckteeth, who is always carrying a blue plush bunny around. Get on her bad side, though, and she ''will'' tear you a new one.

** The PS238 RPG identifies Julie as one of the strongest of the kids at the school, second only to Captain Clarinet [[spoiler:when he had his powers.]] She's basically about as strong as a 7-year-old can be in that world and, as she gains more confidence, the more formidable a combatant (however reluctant) she becomes.

** The other is Kristina "Micro Might" Kyle, one of the teachers at PS238 who is able to shrink... and get stronger. Much stronger. To the point where supervillains have a borderline "Oh God. RUN AWAY!" reaction to her.

* Scrap from ''{{Dynamo 5}}'' is the most delicate of her teammates, but possesses superstrength and invulnerability.
* Gully from ''BattleChasers'', who gained SuperStrength from her DisappearedDad's magic gloves.
* ''PS238'' has a few of them; the most prominent are Julie "84" Finster, a 7-year-old girl who is a bit neurotic about the fact that she's the 84th [[FlyingBrick F.I.S.S.]] (Flight, Invulnerability, SuperStrength, SuperSpeed)... basically the superhero equivalent of Brand X. She's also strong enough to wrap a superarmoured attacker in a casino sign and catch punches from a guy who looks to be somewhere in the range of nine feet tall and is identified as having a muscle/mass ratio of "Omega Five" (whatever that means, although given the reactions to this fact, 'bloody strong' seems appropriate).

* Hisako Ichiki ('''Armor''') from ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' is a 5'4", 112 pound, cute and quippy Japanese girl. Her power is Psionic Exo-Armor that can take a hit from anything short of Wolverine's claws, and can lift (with a little assistance) a Skrull Tank.
* [[KickAss Hit-Girl]], a ten-year old vigilante who can kick 7 kinds of ass with a variety of weapons.
* Max from ''SamAndMax'' is an adorable rabbity CartoonCreature whose role in the Freelance Police is the [[GoodCopBadCop Bad Cop]]/thug. He's shown to not be physically as strong as Sam, but who needs strength when you have a huge gun and [[HeroicComedicSociopath no morals or conscience]]?
* [[CuteMute Miho]] from ''SinCity'' is cute alright. She's also amazingly dangerous, and will cut you up like a piece of Salami if you happen to piss her off.

* Laura Kinney ({{X-23}}) is a pretty, skinny, (officially 5'7" and 110 pounds--100 pounds without her claws--but sometimes depicted even smaller) {{fanservice}}y {{goth}} teen whose typical dress style tends to involve lots of [[BareYourMidriff low-waisted skinny jeans, tank tops]] and [[OfCorsetsSexy corsets]]. She was also raised from birth to be a living weapon, has the same adamantium claws as her [[{{Wolverine}} "father"]], and is arguably one of Marvel's most lethal killers. ''VideoGame/MarvelAvengersAlliance'' even ''has'' her in the Bruisers class. This is the same category as ''Hulk, the Juggernaut, and Thor''.

* Violet of the RatQueens is a slender dwarven woman who carries an almost absurdly-large melee arsenal and is highly skilled with its use. She also shaves her beard, presumably to have a better chance at getting a date in a surface world that assumes that its women come without facial hair.

* "The Female" from Garth Ennis's ''TheBoys'' comic. A petite, vaguely Asian young woman who, when first introduced, takes out a whole house full of mobsters armed to the teeth while alone and unarmed. Her teammate, "The Frenchman", may also qualify, being only slightly larger than her and just as fearsome, although he's male.
