* WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse doesn't seem to have noticed (and instances of it are fairly subtle) but he most definitely has some form of super strength. He's able to wrestle a monster twice his size into a lava pit, easily pick up a full grown woman, and smash a dashboard with his bare fists. The episode "Drop Beat Dad" outright confirms it by having him easily lift music equipment bigger than he is, causing Marty (a character that only just met Steven for the first time) to wonder what kind of food he eats.

The episode "Drop Beat Dad" outright confirms it by having him easily lift music equipment bigger than he is, (a similarly sized box is being lifted by two grown men) causing Marty (a character that only just met Steven for the first time) time and doesn't know Steven's status as a HalfHumanHybrid) to wonder what kind of food he eats.Steven's father feeds the kid.

** [[Spoiler:Princess Flurry Heart]] one-ups the earlier mentioned example of dragging an adult around while flying by carrying that same pony into the air rather than merely dragging her along behind on the ground while themselves airborne.

** One of the schoolyard fillies in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E19CrusadersOfTheLostMark Crusaders of the Lost Mark]] is strong enough to lift up one end of the schoolhouse to get at a ball that end up underneath it. Oddly enough, someone tries to BLACKMAIL her with this fact about herself.

Compare with SmallGirlBigGun, CuteBruiser, LittleMissBadass, PintSizedPowerhouse, and WaifFu. Probably a BadassAdorable. A ChildMage is when they "[[WebComic/EightBitTheater casts the spells that makes the people fall down]]" instead of just pummeling them.

** Saiyan children are like this from a human perspective. Goku is already bulletproof and super strong when he first meets Bulma at age 12, and at that point he's physically younger due to Saiyans' slower aging. By Saiyan standards, of course, [[{{Subversion}} he's just a normal child]], but then, Saiyan children are known to conquer entire planets as infants.
** Goku's son Gohan, a half-Saiyan, has even greater potential power than Goku had at the same age, although Goku's strength was "always-on" and in Gohan's case it only comes out under extreme duress until he receives proper training.
** Goten and chibi!Trunks, also half-Saiyan, are like this even by Saiyan standards, able to attain Super Saiyan form by the age of seven, without training and and apparently without needing to undergo the same TraumaticSuperpowerAwakening as their fathers and Gohan. {{Fanon}} has it that children conceived after the father has already achieved Super Saiyan status [[LamarckWasRight inherit the ability to do so more easily]].

* Chibi America from ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' likes to swing bison around.
* In an episode of ''Anime/InuYasha'' there are two ninja sisters and Suzuna, the younger of them is much stronger than her older sibling. Making it clear by punching a door open and lifting more than twice as much of Demonbones they stole wich deemed to heavy for Suzunas sister.

** Genki Sakura can carry much bigger girls like dolls. Seen in episode 20 where he lifts Pixie up as if she was weightless.
** Holly gets carried around by Genki even more and she is 4 years older than him. But it doesnt seem to bother her.

* In ''Anime/FutureBoyConan'', the 11-year-old protagonist Conan is strong enough to lift boulders and fight of armed soldiers. His trademark is to carry a girl named Lana, what he does in almost every episode.
* Kaolla Su from ''Manga/LoveHina'' must be mentioned. In on episode she almost creams Keitaro in a bearhug while still sleeping. Shortly after Naru gets dragged in there too.

Victor. Both are seemingly in their early to mid teens.



** And their {{Evil Counterpart}}s the Rowdyruff Boys. They are just as strong and as shown in their debut appearence, ''even more efficient fighters then the Powerpuff Girls''.

Little child + SuperStrength = dangerous. These little kids have strength that puts Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk to shame, and an attitude to match. And don't you forget it! Those who mix it up with them the first time and demonstrate their ignorance have a short life expectancy. This tends to be more common in girls than boys for the surprise factor, but it can be found in both.

* The best example from ''Manga/CorpsePrincess'' is Saki - 10 years old, energetic, and insufferably mischievous. Wields a massive hammer (or, in the manga, a similarly oversized axe) and can chuck cars around.

* The title character of ''ComicBook/MonicasGang'' is also this: a super-strong seven-year-old girl whose weapon of choice is a blue bunny plushie, which she uses mainly to beat up the boys who bully her. Some stories go to the extremes of showing her with Silver Age Superman-like power levels - in a story, she had a cold and sneezed so hard that her friends were blown away to different parts of the world (her best friend Maggy ended up in ''China'', for example).

** In the non-canon movies, Broly was this as a child. When he was born, his PowerLevel was already 10,000. For comparison, Goku's highest power level when fighting Raditz as a fully-trained adult is under 1,000, and it isn't until he learns the [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique Kaioken technique]] to multiply his power level that he gets [[MemeticMutation over 9,000]][[note]]What? Nine thousand?[[/note]]
