* Former Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Kevin Pressman might not have been the thinnest of players, but was surprisingly agile and had good reflexes in his prime. What he lacked in grace, he made up for in shot stopping. As [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wtrp0oYqAJY this clip]] attests, he also scored a mean penalty. Off the pitch, he also made headlines when he ''[[http://www.thefreelibrary.com/GOALIE+KEV+SAVES+HIS+MERC+FROM+JOYRIDER%3B+He+nabs+thief+after+car...-a060608375 chased down a car thief over fields for a mile and a half, and eventually caught him]]''.
** While Wednesday had Big Kev, Everton had Big Nev, aka Neville Southall, one of Everton's longest serving players with over 500 league appearances to his name, and widely considered to be one of their best goalkeepers of all time.

** At over 8ft. tall and weighing 442 lbs., Scolipede is the largest and heaviest Bug-type. However, it is also a FragileSpeedster that edges into LightningBrusier territory. Their Hidden Ability is even ''Speed Boost'', an ability that increases their speed stat every turn.

* Marvel's [[StoutStrength fat-with-muscle]] ComicBook/TheKingpin is agile enough to fight ComicBook/{{Spider-Man}} and Comicbook/{{Daredevil}} hand to hand. However, Kingpin himself said that very little of his body mass is actually fat. Confirmed by Daredevil who compared hitting Kingpin to hitting a brick wall. He doesn't REALLY compare to to Spider-Man in terms of pure strength (Spidey, like any hero with super strength, holds back so as not to kill him with a single blow to the head). Demonstrated humiliatingly for the Kingpin during the ComicBook/OneMoreDay storyline when Spider-Man broke INTO prison to beat the crap out of him in front of all the other inmates. This time, Spidey didn't hold back so much because he was 1) Super Pissed-Off and 2) making a point (back in his black costume) that if you went after his family, the "friendly" neighborhood spider-man was not the one that would come after you. However, if the Kingpin actually gets his hands on you, you ''will'' go squish.
