* Channon Yarrow of ''{{Transmetropolitan}}'' is a relatively subtle Big Girl-- to be fair, being physically imposing by comparison with Spider Jerusalem isn't that hard. Still, she doesn't easily fit into any of the subtropes.

* Mr. Mighty from ''Webcomic/EverydayHeroes'', at least in his current team. He could be either Class 2 or Class 5; in practice bouts with his teammates, he wins by [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/eddurd/everydayheroes/series.php?view=single&ID=88846 strategy]] rather than pure strength. Has often fought solo in the past, and has learned to [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/eddurd/everydayheroes/series.php?view=single&ID=146943 outsmart]] opponents.

* WonderWoman in BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice. While she's physically similar in size to {{Superman}} and {{Batman}}, she is described by WordOfGod as being "the best fighter" and is the one doing most of physical fighting in the final battle against [[spoiler: Doomsday]].

* Marv from ''ComicBook/SinCity'' was designed to be one of these. In FrankMiller's words: "Conan in a trenchcoat". He's seven feet tall, he's at least four feet wide, he's big and boisterous and strong. When he teams up with Dwight in "A Dame To Kill For" it's especially apparent.

* Teamed with the Franchise/{{Justice League|of America}} or otherwise, {{Superman}} is usually considered the big guy or the big gun for the team, and is a mix of [[GentleGiant Class 2]] and [[GeniusBruiser Class 5]], although he's simultaneously TheLeader and TheHero.

* Subverted in the ''ComicBook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' storyline in which ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' joins [[Franchise/GreenLantern Guy Gardner's Red Lanterns]]. She was tinier than her teammates... and the most powerful ''by far''.



* ''Franchise/{{Pokémon}}'s'' Send Your OCs fanfic, ''[[PokemonTakeTwo Pokémon: Take Two]]'', gives us Raion, the protagonist. She may not be anything special when it comes to Pokémon training, but has more physical strength than a ten-year-old child should.

* Most Toa of [[DishingOutDirt Stone]] fill this role on their respective teams in ''{{Bionicle}}''. They tend to be BoisterousBruiser types. Toa of Earth may also qualify, but they tend to be {{GeniusBruiser}}s and better suited to being TheSmartGuy.

* The Big Guy will often be the band's [[AnAdventurerIsYou "tank"]]; a MightyGlacier who serves as the strongest physical fighter, but also the slowest and least proficient at magic. Alternatively, he's just a StoneWall taking the hits for others. The lucky ones are those who are [[LightningBruiser as fast they are strong]].

* Muneca Powell from ''Webcomic/{{Pacificators}}'' is an interesting mixture of Class 2 and Class 5. She's not ''quite'' a GentleGiant towards people she dislikes, but she's [[MamaBear great with children]]. She's also smart (she knows the rules inside and out - and she can actually tolerate and understand all that legalese)... and dresses like a ProperLady, complete in [[GorgeousPeriodDress Victorian era style]]. But piss her off, and she'll [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomp]] you with her [[GravityMaster gravity powers]]. Oh, and did I mention that she's over six feet tall, fights with a SwordCane (it's hidden in her ParasolOfPrettiness), and actually is pretty strong to boot?

* ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}:'' Sludge of the Dinobots, usually serving as the DumbMuscle of the team, mixed with GentleGiant (in as much as any Dinobot is "gentle"). His IDW comics incarnation actually is the largest of the team, thanks to an attempt at realistic scale.
