* [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Ike]] can't exactly be called a "waif", but in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'', he's a pipsqueak when compared to other {{Mighty Glacier}}s like [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Bowser]], [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Ganondorf]] and Franchise/DonkeyKong. Despite this, he's a heavy character, attacks slowly, moves slowly, and hits like a ''train'' (the developers actually went so far as to update his design by making him look buffer in the next game to reflect later FE installments). In the ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' series, Ike is actually more of a LightningBruiser.

* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'': Spin-offs after the release of ''VideoGame/MarioKart Wii'' classify Rosalina and Waluigi in the same rank as the massive heavyweights despite their thin figures; this is because Rosalina is a StatuesqueStunner, and Waluigi is LeanAndMean.
** In Rosalina's case, it extends beyond spin-offs, as her playable appearance in ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld'' makes her the slowest character in the team, but the only one capable of attacking enemies without power ups.
** Outside of the Mario Kart series; Waluigi tends to be rather slow and defensive despite his thin build; falling into a combination of this and WeakButSkilled.

A character whose lithe, lightweight appearance suggests a FragileSpeedster or GlassCannon(or, at the least, a character of average size compared to others) but it turns out they are a MightyGlacier, fully capable of carrying a {{BFS}} or a [[DropTheHammer huge war hammer]].

** In ''Mario Kart 8'', [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link]], who has a lean {{Bishonen}} build, is classified as a heavyweight.

** In ''Mario Kart 8'', [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link]], who has a lean {{Bishonen}} build, is classified as a heavyweight. Probably has to do with him being a realistically proportioned human of realistically average height in a game where squat, cartoonish builds are the norm.

* Virgo Shaka from ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' has the ability to move at the speed of light, but prefers fighting by sitting down and [[NoSell shrug off any attack made on him]] while he annihilates whoever refused the offer to just let them retreat and forget the meeting even happened. [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m91a7xhDhy1qajnsio4_1280.jpg Shaka looks like a cute and thin girl]], [[DudeLooksLikeALady even if he's actually a man]].

* In ''VideoGame/Persona5'', Haru is [[TheChick the sweetest, kindest member of the party]], and has a fairly average build for a teenage high school student. In battle, she lugs around a ''big honking axe'' as a weapon ([[HugeWeaponTinyGirl and a grenade launcher for good measure]]).

Not to be confused with an IceQueen, which has more to do with personality than toughness.

* From {{VideoGame/Neptunia}}, Blanc/White Heart. Looking at her, especially compared to some of [[MostCommonSuperpower the more well-built]] characters, you'd be forgiven for thinking this petite, soft-spoken girl, bordering on TokenMiniMoe, was the local WhiteMage... until she [[HairTriggerTemper snaps]] and reveals she's actually the MightyGlacier: the lowest speed, but the highest physical attack and defense.

* Poppy in [[LeagueOfLegends League of Legends]] is a yordle, a small, lightweight race. She has a hammer twice her own size and is one of the hardest champions in the game to kill on top of sporting respectable damage.
