* Kishima Kouma as Goliath vs. Nanaya Kirei as David. Kouma has essentially no skill whatsoever because he doesn't ''need'' any. His skin is tougher than steel, he can punch through trees effortlessly and doesn't tire. Kiri is essentially the most skilled assassin on Earth. Unfortunately, he's an assassin and not a magus or anything like that, so he's reduced to hammering at one side of Kouma's neck and then hitting the other to try and break it. The difference in skill is so huge that his opponent doesn't even realize he almost died with that attack. Key word: Almost. [[SubvertedTrope Goliath wins]]. Foregone conclusion, though, if you've played {{Tsukihime}}.

** Robert Lundgren in his work ''The World Wonder'd'' actually makes the point that it was ''Yamato'', not ''Kongo'' that scored the majority of the hits on Taffy 3's ships, including a hit on USS White Plains that overpenetrated and detonated under her keel, crippling her. This was the longest range naval gunnery hit ever.

** [[http://psyinsti.deviantart.com/art/Death-Battle-Ezio-Auditore-vs-Lu-Bu-450484417 Ezio Autidtore vs Lu Bu]]. Ezio is {{Badass}} by the standards of AssassinsCreed, but Lu Bu is a OneManArmy with CharlesAtlasSuperpower to an insane degree, but fortunately for Ezio, he's also impulsive, not too smart, and very arrogant. [[spoiler: This allows Ezio to barely win since Lu Bu's overconfidence prevents him from killing Ezio immediately, leading to a Ezio manages to get some hits in, also helped by Ezio refusing to give up despite losing an arm and getting beaten half to death, and narrowly kill him. Also helping Ezio is that he's actually durable based on his own merits, with most of Lu Bu's health coming from his armor.]]

* [[BattleAngelAlita GUNNM]]: Gally/Alita is a female cyborg 5 foot tall and that doesn't appear to be more that 20. She routinelly defeats foes many times her size (however, her battle style being designed to handle larger foes, said foes' overconfidence, and the fact that [[CuteBruiser her bodies]] [[PintSizedPowerhouse are most of the time advanced combat models]] are important factors). In almost every important battle she fought, she was stated as WeakButSkilled (and lost to more skilled and stronger opponents), and the 2 important battles she was stronger, one she only won because her flesh-and-blood opponent though it'd be appropiate, and the other she toyed with her opponent [[spoiler:until her body was hijaked by the superpower she was stealing her power source, and got punched to pieces. She survived and may get better...]]
** Also, Sechs taking on the Jovian seeded team by him/herself and putting up a fight (the first form of said "team" was about 500 meters wide, and got larger), Zazie and her relatively weak body (and [[MoreDakka tons of guns]]) fighting in the ZOTT semifinals and finals (where 2 superpowers try their latest MDW, and those LOST before the finals), and Caerula Sanguis fighting a cyborg with Chinese Swords.

* Most of the bosses in ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' fought by the heroine are the size of skyscrapers (at least!). Ironically, to humans, Bayonetta is quite the StatuesqueStunner.

* Torpedo Boats (and later on, attack aircraft) versus battleships, cruisers, and destroyers. These small craft were very fragile, and their targets [[MoreDakka very heavily armed]], but they could deal out catastrophic damage with a successful attack. [[ZergRush Swarm tactics were heavily favored in hopes of overwhelming the defenders.]] By the end of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, the list of warships that fell due to these small attackers would include ''[[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII Arizona, Oklahoma, Bismark, Repulse, Prince of Wales, Yamato, Musashi, Akagi, Lexington, Yorktown]]'', ''[[UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne Szent István]]'', ''[[UsefulNotes/RussoJapaneseWar Knyaz Suvorov]]'', ''[[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar Housatonic]]'', and many others.
