** The series also gets around the whole issue of Heavyworlders logically being short by having the Saiyans be invaders who originally evolved on ''another'' planet, which presumably had gravity to closer to ours. Indeed, Planet Vegeta's original inhabitants ''were'' noticeably smaller than humans.

* Creator/HarryHarrison's ''Literature/{{Deathworld}}'' features Pyrrus: double Earth gravity and so, so much more. The population are all {{TykeBomb}}s. Pyrrans are short and massive, for added realism.

Pyrrans are short and massive, for added realism. Jason's LoveInterest Meta is a native Pyrrhan. He muses that, at first, her rock-hard abs were annoying him a little during sex, as he's used to less muscular women. However, after a while, he grows so used to her abs that he can't envision being with someone who doesn't have them (then again, Meta would probably kill him, if he tried to step out on her).

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/CaptainFrenchOrTheQuestForParadise'', the people of San Brendan are unattractive by most standards thanks to living on a world with a higher gravity than Earth norm. They are short, stocky, and grey-skinned. However, after thousands of years, the San Brendan colonists who have re-settled the planet Transformation (renamed from Brunnershabn) have changed to normal-sized (and attractive) humans. Bioscrupture may have been involved. French even mentions recognizing facial features common to Slavic and Scandinavian people.

* In ''Series/TheOrville'', Alara Kitan's race, Xelayans, come from a high gravity world. In Earth-like conditions, they can smash through concrete and make great leaps.

* In ''Series/TheOrville'', Alara Kitan's race, Xelayans, come from a high gravity world. In Earth-like conditions, they can smash through concrete and make great leaps. Surprisingly, despite their reputation for great strength, they're a [[ProudScholarRaceGuy Proud Scholar Race]], who scoffs at military service as beneath their intellectual pursuits. Alara's parents constantly berate her for her choice of career and ask when she's going to stop this foolishness and get a proper education.

* According to ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'''s [[AllThereInTheManual official data]], the Covenant has a few Heavyworlders in its ranks. The Sangheili/Elite homeworld Sanghelios has 1.375G, Doisac (the Jiralhanae/Brute homeworld) has 2.1G, and the Yanme'e/Drones call Palamok, with 2.2G, their home. Fittingly, all three races are quite physically strong -- Elites & Brutes can match [[SuperSoldier Spartans]] in close combat, and Drones are strong enough to lift full-grown armored human marines into the air. Additionally, Te (the Lekgolo/Hunter homeworld) has ''4''G. Appropriately, the Lekgolo are actually small wormlike creatures that live in massive colonies, and the only reason they didn't develop space travel despite their [[HiddenDepth surprisingly advanced technological civilization]] was because they couldn't overcome said high gravity.

** He's also much shorter than the green-skinned [[MultiArmedAndDangerous Tharks]], although he's the same size as the local humans. His SuperStrength isn't shown much, although he easily breaks through the first chains that the Tharks put him in. They put him in heavier chains and attach them to a huge rock. Carter manages to throw the rock.

* The setting of Creator/AnneMcCaffrey's ''Literature/PlanetPirates'' series and ''Dinosaur Planet'' series may actually be the TropeNamer. The genetically-enhanced Heavyworlders, due to their history, resent and distrust "lightweights" to the point of being open to manipulative propoganda and conspiracy theories by the titular criminals. In [[{{Veganopia}} a greater society of near-universal vegetarians]], they also have to eat meat due to their altered metabolism.
