** Joe Swanson, in later years, has become wimpier despite the fact that he has muscles. It went to a point that he gave up a fight just because he was tripped off of his wheelchair.

** This actually addressed as a plot point in the Cell Saga. Vegeta and Future Trunks had reached a certain ascended version of the basic Super Saiyan, but while it was an insane increase of power, the sheer muscle mass slowed them down too much to actually land a blow on their opponent. Trunks made the mistake of using the ascended form and got his ass handed to him because of this weakness, but Vegeta recognized this and didn't use it in his own fight with him.

* One of the augmentations the Spartans received in the ''{{Franchise/Halo}}'' universe was a thyroid implant that increases their muscular density significantly (tying in to the real life science mention in the description). Spartan II's were "7 foot tall walking tanks" but they became known that way ''before'' their strength enhancing PoweredArmor made them into near unstoppable soldiers. In a story surrounding the augmentation of John-117, at age 14 he already had an adult Olympic-level physique and after recovering from the thyroid implant he was physically far superior to a pair of ODST special forces soldiers, who made the mistake of [[BullyingADragon trying to push him around...]]

Spartan II's were page description. This ''would'' be a justification, except that Spartan-[=IIs=] are also "7 foot tall walking tanks" but they became known that way ''before'' even ''without'' their strength enhancing strength-enhancing PoweredArmor made (''Literature/HaloTheFallOfReach'' describes them into near unstoppable soldiers. In a story surrounding the augmentation of John-117, at age 14 he as already had an having adult Olympic-level physique and after physiques at age 14). Nonetheless, when a 14-year old John-117 was still recovering from the thyroid implant implant, he was already physically far superior to a pair quartet of bigger ODST special forces soldiers, who made the mistake of [[BullyingADragon trying to push him around...]]

** Yang Xiao Long has no discernible muscle mass, but she can effortlessly carry an amp four times her size, overpower the 6'11'' Junior, and punch mechas to pieces.
** Nora Valkyrie is rather petite, but she can smash through a stone bridge and once hit Yang hard enough to launch her into the sky.

pieces. In her case, it's even more justified than the norm for the series due to her [[SuperStrength Semblance]].
** Nora Valkyrie is rather petite, but she can smash through a stone bridge and once hit Yang hard enough to launch her into the sky. Like Yang, it's justified due to her semblance.



** Neo is the smallest human character introduced so far at 4'9'', but she [[CurbStompBattle utterly wipes the floor with Yang]].

** [[Comicbook/{{Batgirl 2000}} Batgirl]] is noted in the comics as being far stronger (and faster) than even a highly athletic girl her size should be. This is mostly down to her [[MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours training]].

This is mostly down to her [[MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours training]]. She very rarely lets lose, but when she does she is fully capable of punching a recently-zombified Joey N'Bobo [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe in half,]] kicking through brick walls, shattering three-inch-thick glass, and throwing around 8-foot tall metahumans.

* ''{{Franchise/Spider-Man}}'' possesses incredible strength but also possesses a thin physique that earned him the nickname "Puny Parker".
