* In ''VideoGame/AHatInTime'', before getting her umbrella, the attack button makes Hat Kid try to punch enemies. Hat Kid is a child; the Mafia populating the first stage are TopHeavyGuys with fists as big as Hat Kid herself [[WouldHurtAChild and no qualms about using them]]. Trying to take them on with you bare fists [[RealityEnsues is a bad idea]].

* Shows up in the ''VideoGame/{{WWE}}'' games, character's less than a heavyweight can never have the highest levels of strength (a strength of 10). Additionally in some versions, a character who's weight-class is two ranks heavier than an opponent's cannot be power-lifted by them (except by taking advantage of certain bugs). This makes Andre the Giant (who's got the unique Ultra-heavy weight class) almost unstoppable in a royal rumble, as heavyweight characters can't lift him.

* Played completely straight in ''Manga/KenganAshura''. This is exemplified with [[TheBrute Julius Reinhold]], "The Most Muscular Man On Earth". A literal walking mass of pure dense musculature, Julius completely [[NoSell blocked]] Sawada's strongest attack using only his trapezius muscle.

Added DiffLines:

* Played straight in the first two seasons (before VillainDecay set in) of ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman''. Characters skinnier than Batman (Riddler, Firefly) would go down easily in a fight, characters about his size ([[AdaptationalBadass Joker]], unpowered Bane) were about as skilled as him and could hold their own for a while, and characters bigger than him (Killer Croc, [[ThoseTwoBadGuys Punch and Judy]], powered Bane) could outfight him and had to be outwitted. The only exceptions were [[{{Acrofatic}} Penguin]] and [[WaifFu Catwoman]].

* Wrestling/ChristopherDaniels is a good example. He's usually somewhere between 180 and 200 lbs. Which is easily in the junior/light heavyweight/cruiser weight category but when he bulked up as much he could he weighed in around 232, which is comfortably in the heavyweight range, but was still mostly booked in the junior/light heavyweight/cruiser weight ranks because Daniels will probably ''never'' have large pecks and thus never ''look'' light a heavyweight.

** On the indies smaller women can bypass this but they'll normally have to rely on WaifFu during matches. [[Wrestling/KanakoUrai Asuka]] seems to be the exception that proves the rule, as she tends to rely on stiff shots and submission hold...and usually ends up beaten after the larger man toughs them out.

** And {{PlayedWith}} in the case of Allomancers, who do ''not'' gain extra muscles to go with their magical Super-Strength. While this means that a skinny 5-foot-nothing girl can out-wrestle a 250-lb brute if she's burning pewter and he isn't, the burly man will still be that much stronger than the skinny girl if ''both'' are burning pewter.
