* Wrestling/ReyMysterioJr: At 5'4" he is overshadowed by just about anyone he meets in the ring, but still often holds his own. Even more so when you consider he started as a teenage in Tijunana, he used to be ''smaller''.

** Character generation can result in this too. Height and weight in D&D, ''TabletopGame/Pathfinder'', and many other games is not related to stats. So yes, that human girl who stands 4'11" and weighs all of 108 pounds? If you're lucky, she's a barbarian and is carrying the tools of her trade. If she prefers GoodOldFisticuffs though ...

Added DiffLines:

* Paul Robinson of Wrestling/{{Progress Wrestling}}. There's no getting around the fact that the man is TINY. However, he's also a former kickboxing champion and not only defeated Jimmy Havoc in a BRUTAL hardcore match to become number one contender to the Progress Championship, he dominated champion Will Ospreay for a good portion of the subsequent title match and only lost due to a roll-up pin.

Added DiffLines:

** Nora Valkyrie is the smallest of the main eight protagonists at 5'1". That said, she is strong enough to wield a hammer bigger than her own body, and claims she can lift five times her own weight. When her Semblance is activated, her blows can render boulders into ash and break a stadium designed to take insane amounts of punishment.

See also ApronMatron, for when small old ladies do this, and MiniMook. CuteBruiser, for when they're young, or [[OlderThanTheyLook at least very young-looking]]. KillerRabbit covers "harmless" animals. See WeakButSkilled for a common explanation behind this. WaifFu and GlacierWaif are subtropes.

subtropes. This Trope is often - but not always - associated with a DavidVersusGoliath fight.
