* In ''VideoGame/CaveStory'' the protagonist goes in search of Sue and finds her at the end of the Egg Corridor, where she seems to be starting a BossBattle with a huge monster. She tells the mutant beast to bring it on and boasts "even [[GeekPhysique my brother's]] never beaten me!" The monster shuffles forward and hits her once, whereupon Sue gives up and desperately apologizes.

* [[TheNapoleon Curley]] in ''Literature/OfMiceAndMen'' is small and verbally confrontational. Candy theorizes his attitude is basically a manipulative way to get people's admiration or sympathy [[HeadsIWinTailsYouLose one way or another]].

* ''WesternAnimation/CatsDontDance'' has Pudge. He is an adorable young Penguin who is ready to fight anyone and anything that hurts his friends. His excuse for not fighting the [[BigBad Big Bad's]] henchman? "I didn't wanna to hurt the guy." Nevermind the fact that said henchman is a hulking gorilla who is at least six feet taller than Pudge. To his credit, he does try to fight the films Big Bad during her much deserved HumiliationConga, but she beats him with one swing of her arm. This is HarsherInHindsight when you consider that she is a small human who has been electrocuted, flattened and hit in the face prior to this failed fight among other things.

** Notably she's grown out of this after several occasions where it's bitten her in the butt. While still boastful and unrealistic about her actual skills, she is ''very'' quick to deny she has any talent in magic or fighting (though she still loves to antagonize those who do).

* [[TheNapoleon Curley]] in ''Literature/OfMiceAndMen'' fills this role, coupled with a (very) minor XanatosGambit.
-->'''Candy''': S'pose Curley jumps a big guy an' licks him. Ever'body says what a game guy Curley is. And s'pose he does the same thing and gets licked. Then ever'body says the big guy oughtta pick on somebody his own size, and maybe they gang up on the big guy.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Joffrey seems to have picked up Robert's boisterousness without any of the bruiser to back it up.
** Hot Pie projects strength this way, but is mellow enough once Arya gets to know him.

* ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'': Mac likes to pretend that he knows karate. He's always looking for the chance to prove that he's a {{Badass}}, until one turns up, [[DirtyCoward then he just runs away]].

* Clip From ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' isn't a bad fighter per se, but every onscreen fight he is in, he gets his ass handed to him. Of special note is his encounter with [[spoiler: Trull]], wherein he boasts that he has never been beaten by a spear-wielder. Well, he has now.

** Mizushima's twitter describes the bandaged teddy bear in Miho's room as this type of character.

to:

** Mizushima's twitter describes the bandaged teddy bear in Miho's room as this type of character. It's nicely demonstrated in ''Der Film'', which shows him getting beaten up by the other animals when he challenges them to a fight, and even with ThePowerOfFriendship, he can only throw a single ineffective punch that misses.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', Elfman was this early on in the series. In spite of his preaching the value of manliness, he could only manage partial transformations, which only amounted to punching someone a bit harder, and his guildmates saw him as something of a joke. He largely overcomes this when he masters Full-Body Take Over and [[CurbStompBattle defeats Monsieur Sol]].
