* The Horse Girls of ''Anime/UmaMusume''. Based on real-world horse racing, it carries the same risks of major injuries while running at extremely high speeds. It's mentioned that a Horse Girl running at 40+ mph could be killed by a fall, and other forms of breakdown are a serious risk. [[spoiler: Silence Suzuka ends up breaking her leg mid-race from the strain of running at top speed]].

* ''Series/DeadliestWarrior'': The two African warriors, the Zande and [[HistoricalDomainCharacter Shaka Zulu]], go into battle with no armour whatsoever, and their rawhide shields which offer very little protection. However their very light weapons, superb stamina and experience as hunters and fighters on the plains make catching and killing them quite difficult.

The Aztec Jaguar warriors were historically renowned for their speed and agility, but in the show they are judged as still only on par with the Zande. In the fight, [[spoiler:the Zande wins because he can outrun the Jaguar, but his ''real'' trump card was his weaponry; the Jaguar's layered cotton armour was proof against the Zande's arrows but was useless against the iron blades.]]

* The Velociraptor fills this role in ''VideoGame/DinoDDay''. It's very quick and can kill any enemy with a pounce, but it can be killed with just a few shots.

* Corvettes in ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'' are the smallest class of warship and the one you start with, characterised by their very low hit points and limited options for weapons and armour. However they have a whopping 80% Evasion rate, so even though an individual Corvette isn't very strong, it can last a surprisingly long time against large anti-ship artillery (which will flail around hopelessly trying to swat them out of space) and do decent damage for the low cost to build them. Swarms of Corvettes used to dominate the naval combat meta for several version cycles, at one point it was even totally cost-ineffective to even give them ''any'' upgrades as opposed to [[ZergRush simply spamming the starting Corvette]].

Added DiffLines:

* Nei in ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarII'' is stuck wearing a ''Fibervest'' by the time you're able to equip Ceramic gear on the rest of your party, but she'll nearly always strike first, which is helpful since she's made for DualWielding. Shir doesn't have it quite as badly as Nei, being even speedier and able to equip a Crystcape, or even the [[ArmorOfInvincibility Neicape]] if you decide not to give it to Amy.

* Kurenai from ''VideoGame/SengokuSNK 3''. She has fast attacks, speed, the most combo potential, but is the weakest.

* ''VideoGame/TreasurePlanetBattleAtProcyon'':
** Imperial Torpedo Boats are the most fragile ship in the game, with only 350 HP, however they have a top speed of 40 kilometres per hours, as well as being well armed for a small ship, as they have two torpedo tubes, making them [[{{Glass Cannon}} Glass Cannons]] at the same time.
** All versions of the Sloop are relatively fast and lightly armoured, with the Procyon Sloop being the fastest, the Pirate Sloop being the best armoured, and the [[{{Tier Induced Scrappy}} Imperial Warsloop]] being the worst in both aspects.
** Gunboats, both the Procyon and Pirate versions, with the Procyon Gunboat being slightly faster at 45 kilometres per hour, compared to the Pirate Gunboat at 43 kilometres per hour, making the Procyon Gunboat the fastest ship in the game. However, they are both very fragile, with the Procyon version only having 510 HP and the Pirate version having 580 HP.

* ''VideoGame/TokyoMirageSessionsFE'' has Eleonora Yumizuru. She can deal a lot of damage with physical attacks due to her good Strength and critical hit rate, but she has the worst HP, defense, and resistance in the game. She can only survive in a fight because she has good evasion and some skills that reduce her chance of being targeted.

* Cruiser tanks. The "cruiser tank" was a British inter-war innovation: an armored fighting vehicle which would perform the same tasks on land as cruisers at sea, namely scouting, outflanking, harassing the enemy and destroying his logistics. The British went MinMaxing on tanks: they developed heavy, well-armored but slow infantry tanks and fast, light cruiser tanks. Cruiser tanks were light, fast and had excellent range, but they had paper-thin armor and puny QF 2 lb (40 mm) "peashooter" cannon. They were on their own element on open terrain, such as desert, where they could fully employ their mobility, but suffered horribly at close terrain. In 1943 latest the British noticed their doctrine was flawed, and both were eventually replaced by the [[LightningBruiser main battle tank]]. The last cruiser tank, Cromwell, is often considered as the prototype for main battle tank.

* Oxjack's set in ''VideoGame/TwentyXX'' makes you into one, compared to the other three sets (although you can load up on as many bonus health points as you can get with any of them). Tanky Armatort, power-focused Owlhawk and straight-up blaster Dracopent all have at least ''something'' that lets them restore health or improve efficiency on normal health recovery, while all Oxjack gets is a shield that comes online while dashing - but Oxjack's arm improves attack charge time, the head improves dash speed, and the legs permit air-dashing, with the SetBonus allowing three air-dashes per jump.
