* Most female weapon-users in the ''FireEmblem'' series are {{Fragile Speedster}}s or Archer, but ''Sacred Stones'' gave us Amelia, who starts out as a fairly raw recruit but can eventually become a General, Great Knight, or Paladin--or, for maximum application of this trope, take the "Super-Recruit" path, thus doing massive damage (as super-recruits have high CriticalHit rates) with a lance larger than she is.
** Jill from ''Path of Radiance'' and ''Radiant Dawn'' ([[SheIsAllGrownUp or not]]) might also qualify, as she's a member of the mighty Dragon Knight class and, according to a support conversation in ''Path of Radiance'', is about the same age as the TokenMiniMoe WhiteMagicianGirl Mist.

** Nowi from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' can become one if she class changes into a Wyvern Rider, as she's easily the youngest looking character out of the entire cast, yet potentially just as capable of handling a huge battle axe or lance.
*** In addition, any of the female children that are born can become a General and/or Dragon Knight as long as either their mother or father had access to the class. Out of the kids themselves, Sully's daughter Kjelle has Knight (the class that predates General) as her starter, and she's a teenage girl who always has her HUGE armor on.

* In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne'', if you keep Pixie with you during the whole game, you can eventually turn her into this through a sidequest.
** This carries over to ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'', ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', with a small caveat - they're all used on ''you''.
** Speaking of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', Chie certainly qualifies. An ExtremityExtremist that literally kicks her way out of battle, her follow-up attack allows her to turn an enemy, as well as {{miniboss}}es and even bosses, into ATwinkleInTheSky. On the top of that, Chie gains the powerful physical attack God's Hand, which will bring endless amounts of pain to her adversaries.
*** This doesn't begin to describe the unmitigated cuteness that Chie represents. Especially at higher levels and with proper equipment, her agility can get very high, to the point where she's quite difficult to hit. The cute part? When she dodges, she goes "Noink!" ''It doesn't stop being adorable''.
** And before Chie, there was ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'''s Lisa Silverman.

** ''VideoGame/Persona2'''s Lisa Silverman is a girly teenager who's also one heck of a martial artist.

** Tiny and sweet [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII Penelo]] is naturally more profficent with magic, but feel free to give her a two-handed greatsword and watch her plough through enemies.

** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyType0 Cinque]] is the resident Cloudcuckoolander, naive and innocent to a fault. In battle, she swings around [[CarryABigStick a mace as big as she is]] and is easily capable of killing most enemies in only a few hits.

* She may not have super strength, but Emilia of ''YggdraUnion'' otherwise fits the trope perfectly. The younger sister of the BigBad, she frequently appears at the worst possible times, outdone in this respect only by Aegina [[spoiler:and Luciana]], and is one of the most difficult recurring bosses in the series... and she's only 14. Granted, the game's art style makes everyone look about 10 years younger than they really are...

* Irene from ''ShiningForceIII''. A tiny woman with girlish pigtails, big doe eyes and a fancy Chinese-style dress, who doesn't speak the local language well for extra vulnerability points. Her method of fighting, in a game where most humanoid characters carry big ol' swords, axes, lances and the like? One oversized boxing glove and her feet. Oh, and she's a monk.

* Cecille in ''SuikodenIII''. Cute as a button teen girl who's shorter than even Thomas (and Thomas is a shrimp, by his own admission). She also patrols Budehuc Castle all day ''in full plate armor'', wielding a spear ''larger than she is'' and a buckler, and trains every morning by ''running two miles'' in said plate armor. Her exclusive War Horse rune is also one of the most damaging attacks in the game, although it has low accuracy.
* This is honestly just about every playable character in {{Neptunia}}. Take pity in those who are foolish enough to underestimate them just because of their looks, especially [[HelloNurse Com]][[HospitalHottie pa]] with that giant syringe.
** Special mention to Peashy from ''{{Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory}}'', who's a ''toddler, for Christ's sake'', but has enough strength to send monstrosites (and even Neptune herself!) high up until they turn into {{A Twinkle In The Sky}}.

* Rare male example, Prince Dreambert of MarioAndLuigiDreamTeam turns out to be this. We see him take out Mooks at a few points but when you realize how just badass the little pillow guy can be is when he battles Antasma, a fearsome nightmare demon king, to a draw. Later on he ends up on the receiving end of a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown by Antasma but that was only because he used the dream stone to increase his power in the dream world.

** Mew may be the UrExample in {{Pokemon}}. The exact size of a Pikachu, Mew has base 100 in all of its stats, thus its Average Stat Value is 100. This means it's categorized in the same strength tier as juggernauts like Tyranitar and Dragonite (most other non-Uber legendaries - i.e. Articuno, Zapdos, & Moltres - in the game have an ASV of around 97.7). Add to these stats Mew's ability to learn any and all TM, HM, and nearly all non-unique Move Tutor moves in the game, and it becomes clear that Mew is an adorable [[OneManArmy god of death]].

** ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' added Stufful and it's evolution, Bewear. Both are adorable mons based on Red Pandas and stuffed animals (Stufful) and Japanese Mascots (Bewear), but are ''monstrously'' strong. In fact, they're Normal/''[[BareFistedMonk Fighting]]'' types to boot, and all of their dex entries mention their massive strength.

* Saki from the ''{{Oneechanbara}}'' series. She's 16, and looks even younger. She is a fairly solid swordsman... and her alternate combat style is fighting bare-handed and/or using throws, in which case she shows the ability to ''tear zombies' arms off with her bare hands'' or ''suplex them so hard their heads fall off''. Yeah.
