Added DiffLines:

* Comes up quite a bit in ''Series/{{Chuck}}'':
** Although Sarah is played by 5'9" Creator/YvonneStrahovski, who certainly has the build to make her ActionGirl spy believable, she nonetheless relies mostly on this since she's frequently pitted against men who are ''significantly'' more massive (for example, Creator/MichaelClarkDuncan). With a handful of exceptions, all of her actual drag-out brawls on the show were with [[DesignatedGirlFight other women]].
** Anna Wu (played by 5'2" Julia Ling) once beat up a bully from the local sporting goods store (played by 6'5" ''Michael Strahan'') relying on her speed, agility, and judicious use of a [[ImprovisedWeapon camera tripod]]. Her skills even impressed ''[[TheBigGuy Casey]]''.
** The same often goes for many of the other lady spies that turn up, such as Carina (played by slim tall drink of water Mini Anden) and the rest of the CAT Squad. They have no trouble taking on men much more massive than themselves by relying on SheFu rather than raw power.
** GenderInvertedExample with Chuck himself. Zachary Levi isn't ''short'' by any means, but is still noticeably lankier than Casey, even in later seasons when he began to buff up. Most of the fighting skills he pulled from the Intersect relied on speed and deflection, rather than brute strength.
** Ditto for the ''actually'' short (comparatively speaking) Morgan while he had the Intersect. Joshua Gomez's 5'8" height was often exaggerated for comedic effect, and much like Chuck relied on speed and the Intersect's extensive martial arts database to fight much larger opponents.

* CanonImmigrant ''ComicBook/{{X 23}}''. Well, what do you expect from an OppositeSexClone of ''ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}''?

to:

* CanonImmigrant ''ComicBook/{{X 23}}''. Well, what do you expect from an OppositeSexClone She's even ''shorter'' than her "dad," Comicbook/{{Wolverine}}, and is much more gracile, though still athletic. Partly justified: As with Logan, Laura's HealingFactor gives her denser muscle, bone, and connective tissue than a normal human being, granting her a degree of ''ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}''?SuperStrength.


Added DiffLines:

* As with her comics counterpart, Laura from ''Film/{{Logan}}''. In fact, it's exaggerated further because in this film she's an ''eleven year old girl'' happily taking on trained, heavily-armed, ''cybernetically enhanced'' Reavers twice or more her size! And when confronted with [[spoiler:X-24, a clone of Logan himself,]] she immediately goes into attack mode, using her speed and small size to keep him completely off balance. [[spoiler:If not for his HealingFactor, she would have ''torn him apart''.]] RealityEnsues whenever a mook or [[spoiler:X-24]] actually manages to land a hit, since she ''is'' still an eleven year old girl fighting grown men twice her size, but she can still carve through an army of Reavers with terrifying effectiveness.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' games, any melee light armor female build effectively becomes this, especially in games where you can augment your speed and jumping ability. It's especially noticable in ''Videogame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' if you play a melee Khajiit, Breton, or Dunmer female, who are all small, lightweight, and a nightmare to fight at high levels. Even moreso when you learn the [[MakeMeWannaShout Slow Time or Whirlwind Fury Shouts]] and suddenly can dance around your enemies, cutting them to ribbons at lightning speeds. Conversely, a melee heavy armor female build heads into GlacierWaif territory.

** Introduced in ''Film/IronMan2'', [[ComicBook/BlackWidow Natasha Romanoff]] blows through a building with a combination of non-lethal weaponry and improbable martial arts - all in the time it takes Happy Hogan to take down one guard with conventional boxing technique. Subsequently, she goes on to fight small armies throughout the rest of the films using a wide array of styles, to the point that she's able to fight alongside the other Avengers.

* During [[Wrestling/ProWrestlingZero1 ZERO1 Dream Series ~ Growth]] three big dudes James Raideen, Hartley Jackson and ''TARU'' were defeated in TagTeam match by Takumi Iroha(who is kind of big for a woman athlete but over sixty lbs lighter than Jackson, the smallest man), Miki Tanaka(who is small for an athlete) and ''Mio Momono'' (tiny by any standard) when Momono caught Jackson in a knee lock. Most opponents since have tried to find a way to catch Momono, with varying levels of success, or just refused chase after her.
