* The [[{{Hobbits}} Kithkin]] in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'''s "Lorwyn"
and "Shadowmoor" blocks are a little under four feet tall, but are incredibly tenacious in a fight. In fact, the most common "classes" for them are Knight and Soldier.
* The ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh'' card game has a few:
** [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Injection_Fairy_Lily Injection Fairy Lily]] is a cute and friendly-looking nurse (albeit one holding a huge syringe). If her Effect is used, her Attack Score rises to 3,400, stronger than Blue-Eyes White Dragon.
** [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Ultimate_Baseball_Kid Ultimate Baseball Kid]]. He looks like a ten-year-old little leaguer, but his effect grants him 1,000 extra Attack Points for every Fire-Attribute monster on the field (except himself) making him lethal in the right type of deck.
** [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Goblin_King Goblin King]]. Despite the regal name, he's a small guy who's a Level 1 monster with zero points, but he gains 1,000 points for every Fiend on the field other than himself. If used in combination with cards like DNA Surgery and Opti-Camouflage Armor, this can be ''very'' potent.
** [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Mokey_Mokey Mokey Mokey]]. Being a Normal Monster, this guy at first seems even weaker than a Kuriboh. ''However'', if the Spell Card [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Mokey_Mokey_Smackdown Mokey Mokey Smackdown]] is used, these little guys become terrors, their Attack Scores becoming 3,000 apiece if a Fairy you control is destroyed.

* Any [[OurGnomesAreWeirder gnome]] or [[{{Hobbits}} halfling]] in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' 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.

** Neopolitan is ostensibly the smallest human character in the series, standing around 4'11" including heels, but is capable of performing some seriously impressive acrobatic feats near the end of Volume 2 and outright overpowering Yang, who is a head taller than her.
** 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.

** 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 ...

* 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.
