* A "World Midgets Title" was established in 1949 by the Wrestling/NationalWrestlingAlliance in 1949, though it did not have much longevity. In 2009, Octagoncito was the newly established World Minis title, but it doesn't get much use.
* The Mini Estrella Division, most commonly seen in Mexican promotions, was set up to give wrestlers who are simply too small and short to qualify even for the lowest weight classes([[SeriousBusiness which are enforced by law]]) someone to compete against. While there are many Mini Estrella who eventually outgrow the division, some have already hit their maximum size yet still find promoters finding ways to have them wrestle those far out of their weight class just because they are {{popular|ity power}} enough. Wrestling/{{AAA}} had the mascot division, made entirely of Mini Estrella and larger wrestler pairs, for example.

* Pawns in chess can end up becoming this if they are in strategic enough positions. As a pawn is the least valuable piece, whenever one attacks any other piece, the other piece is usually forced to retreat. And if a pawn gets all the way to the other end of the board, it can decide the game by promoting to another piece (usually a queen).

* Wrestling/DragonGate's roster skews shorter than most, even in Japan, and there are only one or two true heavyweights on the roster at any time; this means that while Don Fujii easily exemplifies the trope in a vacuum, he's not short by DG standards. Even so, El Lindaman is notable for being about 5'3" but powerful and well-built -- he deals primarily in suplexes and judo throws. Peter Kaasa is around the same height, and while his style is high-flying, he has a massively muscled physique and great strength.

** Any [[OurGnomesAreWeirder gnome]] or [[{{Hobbits}} halfling]] who reaches high enough level. At 15th level, there's not much difference between human and halfling barbarians. While both races take a hit to physical strength, gnomes are extremely durable, being able to endure exertions like dwarves and orcs. Compared to elves, they are almost indestructible.
