* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edith_Margaret_Garrud Edith Garrud]], the main bodyguard for the British suffragist movement, who learned various forms of ju-jitsu - including Bartitsu - and used that knowledge to pummel the police twice her height and triple her bulk who kept trying to break up suffragist meetings and arrest their leaders. Even made her own BadassOfTheWeek entry.

* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'''s Makoto Kino isn't ''that'' huge a HugeSchoolgirl, but can take out grown men when provoked.
** Also, the petite Minako Aino. She doesn't show it as often as Makoto and is actually weaker (Makoto having actual SuperStrength), but Minako is just as devastating, in the [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]]. And in the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]], she actually knocked out ''Makoto herself'' (who was BrainwashedAndCrazy at the time), ''[[OneHiTKO with a single kick]]''.

provoked. She's explicitely shown studying martial arts (Judo in the manga and Crystal, Jeet Kune Do in the first anime).
** Also, the petite Minako Aino. She doesn't show it as often as Makoto and is actually weaker (Makoto having actual SuperStrength), but Minako is just as devastating, in the [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]]. And in the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]], she actually knocked out ''Makoto herself'' (who was BrainwashedAndCrazy at the time), ''[[OneHiTKO with a single kick]]''. It's hinted she learned Savate at some point in the past, and has far more experience than Makoto with it.
** In the anime, Michiru Kaioh. While tall as Makoto and only a few months older she's much slimmer... And then, when confronted by a horde of Germatoid clones, she proceeded to maul them with her bare hands before being overwhelmed by sheer numbers. The only foreshadowing we had were [[WalkingSwimsuitScene the many times she was seen swimming]] (thus developing muscles) and her instinctively assuming a [[WrestlerInAllOfUs Pankration stance]] when she sees their numbers.

* Ninette from ''[[Literature/ElementalMasters Reserved For The Cat]]''; she's a trained ballerina, and knows that jumps, spins, and kicks can be useful both in dancing and fighting.

* Nessiah, from ''YggdraUnion'', is one of the exceedingly rare male examples of this trope. Not only is he tiny--he's stuck in a set of heavy chains that should by all rights make any form of combat impossible. And yet he manages to [[GameBreaker thrash the player's entire army with ease]]. The fact that he's a mage isn't even an excuse, as most magic-users in ''YggdraUnion'' [[SquishyWizard have very low attack stats to match their lack of physical strength]].

* Tuon from {{The Wheel of Time}} is a petite bald woman who can be easily mistaken for a little boy, but it would be unwise to underestimate her ability to kill you with her bare hands.
* Arya from ''Literature/{{A Song of Ice and Fire}}'' novels is a bit of a subversion. In the first book, she is specifically trained to fight in this kind of style, but attempts to take on actual experienced and armed male combatants throughout the series usually end with her being disarmed readily. Fortunately, she is able to actually kill many of her targets using skill and surprise, mainly by exploiting the fact that no one tends to see her as a threat.

Added DiffLines:

* Detective Alexandra "Alex" Eames of ''Series/LawAndOrderCriminalIntent'' is five feet and two inches of slim, blonde, unadulterated badass. Despite the HugeGuyTinyGirl aspect of her relationship with partner Bobby Goren, ''she'' does most of the physical asskicking.

** Hinata also falls into this category. Her clan's specialty is the "Gentle Fist" technique, which rather than using crippling damage delivers a short, intense burst of energy to block a chakra point, preventing the use of ninja techniques (and potentially the use of limbs, or ''organs''). In the anime, she's also shown the ability to improve the "near perfect defense" technique to a "truly perfect defense", and turns the Gentle Fist into something that would make [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Kenshiro]] start to shed ManlyTears. For the longest time, she did this ''occasionally''. She would have demonstrated her strength more often earlier on, had it not been for her crippling self-esteem issues, which were only sporadically overcome by following Naruto's example. By the [[WarArc Fourth Shinobi World War Arc]], after she has gained a lot more self-confidence and self-assertiveness, she starts actively showing off her strength, especially when she masters the Sixty-Four Palms and combines it with her Twin Lion Fists.

** Hinata also falls into this category in a way; her clan's specialty is the "Gentle Fist" technique, which rather than using crippling damage delivers a short, intense burst of energy to block a chakra point, preventing the use of ninja techniques (and potentially the use of limbs, or *organs*). In the anime, she's also shown the ability to improve the "near perfect defense" technique to a "truly perfect defense", and turns the Gentle Fist into something that would make [[Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar Kenshiro]] start to shed ManlyTears. At least, she does this ''occasionally''. Hinata would probably be stronger were it not for her absolutely crippling self-esteem issues, which are only sporadically overcome by following Naruto's example.
