** May Parker is actually technical Peter Parker's aunt, aunt (the wife of his dad's oldest brother) and not his grandmother, but in most continuities, she's portrayed as being practically old enough to be his grandmother, and grandmother--and, on at least one occasion occasion, has scared the bejeezus out of a villain who was after Petey.



** In simple terms: fuck with her nephew... and you are in for a ''world of hurt''.

* The title character's grandmother in ''ComicBook/{{Bamse}}''. She normally only stands in the sidelines, cooking up the thing that makes Bamse strong... but when he's otherwise incapacitated, she enters the fray herself. Awesomeness ''always'' ensues.

* In ''ComicStrip/PiranhaClub'', Enos mother-in-law is a frail little old lady... who just happens to have superpowers such as invulnerability and superhuman strength along with a really mean personality. She swept the floor with Mike Tyson once.

* Although she is short, old, and her hands shake, the nanny from ''WesternAnimation/TheThiefAndTheCobbler'' is probably the most formidable good guy in the movie. As seen by the part, left in most cuts, where she restrains the thief from stealing her golden-yellow bananas... with a pair of huge, muscular arms... and then beats him like an old carpet.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime'': Although it's Littlefoot's grandpa that does most of the fighting in the main series, his grandma has proven herself capable as well... and we're talking about a 70-foot-long Brontosaurus here. As the trope description says, [[MamaBear Littlefoot's mother]] got it from somewhere. This is where.

She is [[CoolOldLady a brilliant magician, a great veterinarian, an acrobat, an expert fencer, not to mention she knows much more of technology and chemistry than she pretends]], and woe betide anyone who tries to harm her great-niece.

* The Starwife, the magic-wielding ancient squirrel queen in the ''Literature/DeptfordMice'' trilogy, has a fiery temper and it is dangerous to get on the wrong side of her. Even her servants fear her fiery temper; she has been known to throw her stick at them when they annoy her.

* ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands2}}'': Mr. Torgue mentions that being ranked as the 50th greatest badass on [[DeathWorld Pandora]] puts you behind his grandma, but ahead of a guy she gummed to death over several hours. It's hard to say why she bothered, because it turns out [[StrongFamilyResemblance she's just as musclebound as he is]] and casually mentions wrestling a whale-squid named [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Blowhole the Apocalypse]].

* There was a small Shockwave game called ''EggDrop'' that involved the player standing at the top of a tall building dropping things like eggs, water balloons, etc., on passersby. If a payload falls on a passing granny (who walks rather slowly), she gets enraged and calls the police, which ends the level immediately.

* Antonia in ''Antonia's Line'' decides to deal with the man who raped her granddaughter her own way -- so she heads to the local tavern with a shotgun. When she gets there, she decides instead to put a curse on him instead of killing him ([[KarmicDeath which apparently works]]). Whether you think he got off easy or not it was definitely a badass grandma moment when she has him on his knees terrified.
