Like the FragileSpeedster, the Lightning Bruiser is well-suited to ConfusionFu; unlike a FragileSpeedster it can also use [[AttackAttackAttack a more direct approach]] without needing to rely on HitAndRunTactics to stay safe. The classic FlyingBrick SuperHero archetype is usually a LightningBruiser. Compare and contrast {{Acrofatic}}, with which it may also overlap. Compare and contrast also JackOfAllStats, which is similarly well-rounded but not exceptional in any particular area in the way a Lightning Bruiser is.

Added DiffLines:

Either FasterThanTheyLook or StrongerThanTheyLook may apply if the Lightning Bruiser '''looks''' more like a MightyGlacier or a FragileSpeedster, respectively. The resulting surprise factor is useful for getting an edge on unsuspecting opponents.

The Lightning Bruiser is an {{Archetype}} that sets itself apart from the competition in that it is able to take and give a lot of damage and can move quickly. When considering strength, speed, and toughness, the Lightning Bruiser does not trade off one advantage for another the way, say, the FragileSpeedster trades off durability for speed or the GlassCannon trades durability for power, or how the MightyGlacier trades mobility for durability.

To prevent the character from becoming a GameBreaker or StoryBreakerPower, the Lightning Bruiser may have [[NecessaryDrawback weaknesses]] beyond strength, speed, and toughness: [[CloseRangeCombatant lack of range]] or [[MagicallyIneptFighter magical capability]] or a high resource cost are some of the challenges these characters can face. Sometimes, the Lightning Bruiser may be balanced by being less interesting that its counterparts: it hits fast and hard, and it can take a punch, but it doesn't do much else.

When adding examples, keep in mind: '''This trope only exists relative to other characters in universe.''' A statement that a character is strong, fast, and durable does not define them as a Lightning Bruiser; most {{Action Hero}}es already demonstrate those qualities. A character is a Lightning Bruiser if they are explicitly stated to be strong'''er''', fast'''er''', '''''and''''' tough'''er''' than most of the other characters, or if it is stated explicitly that another character is a FragileSpeedster or a MightyGlacier.

MightyGlacier. As such this trope is ''not'' part of CompetitiveBalance unless a character is unbalanced.
