* Hiccup of ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' is physically the weakest of all the characters, to his chagrin. It doesn't help that his father is practically a tank, and Hiccup believes that his lack of muscle is the reason behind his father's disappointment in him; in reality, as Gobber stated, it's more about "what's inside [Hiccup] that [Stoick] can't stand", which also doesn't help. Hiccup's strength lies in his smarts, but Vikings don't understand that as well as brute force. The [[WesternAnimation/DragonsRidersOfBerk show]] explores this further in the episode were Stoick has Hiccup drawn very muscular on a shield painting, which Stoick doesn't catch on how this hurts his son's feelings and only worsens his already ingrained insecurities. And while does remain leaner than most as he grows up, he ''does'' get stronger (i.e., being able punch the brawnier Snotlout so hard he also lost a couple of teeth) and many other Vikings (including the Twins and Snotlout) still point out his scrawniness in an unflattering way (either for [[PlayedForLaughs laughs]] or [[PlayedForDrama drama]]).

* ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'':
** [[spoiler:Fujisaki]] has serious issues with his lack of muscle because of other boys bullying him for his weak body. Not soon after the Killing School Life has started, he desires to improve himself and build some muscle to overcome his weakness. [[spoiler:It's that determination that gets him killed by Oowada, whose inferiority complex, SurvivorGuilt and stress from the Killing School Life causes the him to snap and kill Fujisaki in a moment of uncontrolled rage.]]
** Oogami is aware of her BrawnHilda look and since she has a feminine side deep within her, she is sometimes insecure about her appearance clashing with her gender. In Free Time Events, hearing from Naegi that he views her as a girl really relieves her. (The only other character who does that is Oogami's best friend Asahina.)
