** Then there's Tyrion Lannister, a dwarf who's easily one of the most BadAss characters and effective leaders, though he has trouble actually getting put in a position where he can lead because everyone hates him, including [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen his sister.]] He's actually the most heroic of the Lannister family ([[BlackAndGreyMorality relatively speaking]]) but suffers from a bad case of HeroWithBadPublicity due to Westeros's prejudice against people with dwarfism, leading to people thinking of him as this trope. This image isn't helped by his entourage of hulking mountain clansmen bodyguards, nor indeed his public perception as an EvilChancellor due to the fact that most people aren't aware of the royal court's inner workings and blame him for the antics of [[TheCaligula Joffrey]] and [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Cersei]] when he's actually doing all he can to reign them in.

* Downplayed with Domingo in ''Series/LukeCage''; he's short, though not tiny, and is introduced with the standard {{Hitler Cam}}-flanked-by-large-bodyguards shot. What's particularly notable in this case is that while he makes no effort to disguise his stature, walking right up to Stokes and staring him square in the chest, the usually arrogant and bullying Stokes [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness doesn't crack the slightest joke about it]], making it immediately clear who has the upper hand.

* Downplayed with Domingo Colon in ''Series/LukeCage''; he's short, somewhat shorter than the other crime bosses, though not tiny, and is introduced with the standard {{Hitler Cam}}-flanked-by-large-bodyguards shot. What's particularly notable in this case is that while he makes no effort to disguise his stature, walking right up to Cornell Stokes and staring him square in the chest, the usually arrogant and bullying Stokes [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness doesn't crack the slightest joke about it]], making it immediately clear who has the upper hand. Incidentally, Jacob Vargas, who plays Domingo, is an average sized person at 5' 7½", while Mahershala Ali is 6' 1½", so editing tricks are used to achieve the effect.
