* Much like the Farquaad example above, Mr. Aloysius O'Hare, the vertically-challenged CorruptCorporateExecutive from the movie version of ''WesternAnimation/TheLorax''
** And the fact that he's voiced by Rob Riggle, who stands about 6' 2½''.

* Wrestling/AlexaBliss is only 5 ft 1 and while a CuteBruiser as a {{Face}}, she was this all the way once she turned heel. A CombatPragmatist who used every dirty trick in the book, she would also mock and belittle her opponents until they finally got sick of it and smacked her. {{Wrestling/Naomi}} once mockingly nicknamed her [[Series/HereComesHoneyBooBoo "Lexi Boo Boo"]], drawing the comparisons between Alexa and a BrattyHalfPint.
* Wrestling/AJLee likewise is an inch taller than Alexa and played a heel for the majority of her career. While also a {{Yandere}}, she was well aware that her size allowed bigger opponents to beat her up. She just employed a bodyguard or a GirlPosse in order to continue talking trash.

* Cosette Cosmos from VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}}.

to:

* Cosette Cosmos from VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}}.VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}} is the ([[OlderThanTheyLook seemingly]]) child leader of a band of SpacePirates. She has a complex about her height and apparent age, to the point where calling her little [[BerserkButton sends her into a frothing rage]], and she's quite a violent individual besides.

** Nick's partner in crime is Finnick, a diminutive hot-headed fennec. Not helping his temper is that many of Nick's schemes involve disguising Finnick as a baby.
** "Mr. Big", one of Zootopia's most notorious crime bosses, turns out to be a diminutive arctic shrew. Subverted in that he's actually quite the AffablyEvil ColdHam instead of a bossy {{Jerkass}}.

The [[OppositeTropes natural counterpart]] to the GentleGiant. While the GentleGiant is large and kind-hearted, the Napoleon is HotBlooded, aggressive and short. This character comes in a variety of flavors: they might be physically belligerent or merely pushy; they [[CompensatingForSomething might be compensating]] for their lack of height by acting "big", or it might just be an incidental part of their character. By and large, small things are AcceptableTargets, so expect the Napoleon to be a villain, a ClassicalAntiHero or the ButtMonkey. If portrayed as one of the good guys, consider him as an AntiHero, GoodIsNotNice, JerkWithAHeartOfGold, and/or JerkassFacade.
