* ''[[TheLordsOfCreation In the Courts of the Crimson Kings]]''. The RodentsOfUnusualSize are this way, shocking the protagonist who'd assumed that meant unusually ''large'' size -- not small, voracious and existing in vast numbers.

* In ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', the way the rules are set up there's no logical way for bug-sized or even normal-rat-sized creatures to be properly threatening even to first level characters...hence, the Swarm type. Depending on the size of the individual creatures involved, swarms can resist and even be immune to damage that isn't an area attack.

Added DiffLines:

** Queen Chrysalis's army, despite being a little big, evokes this full time. Despite being able to fly, use magic, ''and'' shapeshift, they're shown to be much weaker (as well as noticably smaller) than a regular pony in combat. They compensate for this by [[ZergRush vastly outnumbering their foes]].
