* ''[[WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime The Land Before Time sequels]]'', during the rare moments when Littlefoot's Grandparents are protecting him and the other kids from any Sharp Teeth. More or less a combination of BattleCouple, BadassGrandpa, NeverMessWithGranny, and this trope all in one.

* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', Shiro, a tiny ancient Japanese guy with poor eyesight beats the crap out of a Denarian in the shape of a 6 legged {{bear|sAreBadNews}} with a {{cane|Fu}}. On the other hand, this cane turns out to be the sheathe for Fidelacchius, one of the Swords of the Cross.
* In both ''Literature/AdrianMole'' and its TV adaptation, the thirteen-and-three-quarter year old Adrian confides in his beloved granny that he is being bullied at school. His tiny granny promptly goes out and CurbStomps the bully into a whining pleading-for-mercy pulp.

* AndrewJackson did this to a guy who tried to kill him, chasing him with his cane after both of the would-be assassin's pistols failed to fire. Jackson, 67 at the time and reportedly having respiratory problems, had to be pulled off his target by his aides after administering a highly justified beatdown.
