* Makoto in ''VideoGame/StreetFighter3'' 3rd Strike. She's one of the shortest characters in the franchise at under five feet, but when she hits you, [[PintSizedPowerhouse you're going to notice]]. Unfortunately, she also moves pretty slow and her small size means she's got low reach and her dashing attacks leave her vulnerable if executed poorly.

* In ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'', creating a female player character of any of the tank classes and choosing body type one will result in this.

* 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.

%% * Due to there being LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters in the ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' series, some character will inevitably fall into every character trope imaginable, including the Glacier Waif. A few that come to mind are Wendy from ''[[FireEmblemElibe Sword of Seals]]'', Knight!Amelia and Fighter or Pirate!Ross from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones Sacred Stones]]'', and Nephenee from the ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Tellius]]'' series. Given the class change system in the new ''[[FireEmblemAkaneia Shadow Dragon]]'' series, EVERY waif like character can potentially be a MightyGlacier.

** Glaceon is like this, with amazing Special Attack and low Speed.

** Glaceon is like this, with amazing Special Attack and low Speed. Another Eeveelution that fits the bill is Umbreon. Despite being as big as a mid-sized dog and looking like a black cat with glowing rings on its fur, it has sky high defensive stats and works very well as a StoneWall.

* Cloud in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' is one of the shorter heroes and skinny as hell. He also carries a ridiculous {{BFS}}, is slow moving for a Cosmos warrior, and uses slow, telegraphed, predictable bashing attacks that send opponents crashing into walls for extra damage.

** Scizor looks like a FragileSpeedster as it's rather scrawny and seems capable of moving at high speeds. It even learns moves like Bullet Punch and Agility. Its highest stats are actually Attack and Defense with well below average Speed. Scizor's lasting power in spite of its Speed makes it popular to use.

* If you haven't seen or played ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'', Makoto from the Arc Stars in ''VideoGame/ArcStyleBaseball3D'' doesn't appear to be a batting threat... but she can hit as hard as a Macho player.

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, or maybe StoneWall.
