* The ProWrestlingEpisode of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has Amethyst [[VoluntaryShapeshifting turning into]] a huge (male) wrestler named Purple Puma to compete in the local circuit and proves pretty much unstoppable. In a possible inversion, Amethyst is ''actually'' a [[MagicalGirlWarrior super-powered]] alien, but [[PaperThinDisguise but seems to be trying]] to pretend she's a human so the other Crystal Gems won't find out about her. Amethyst is also [[PercussiveTherapy too interested]] in [[ProWrestlingIsReal beating people up]] to cultivate any specific image, only managing to be an effective heel thanks to Steven's showmanship ocne he becomes her tag partner.

* Another literal example can be found in "The Unspeakables", an entire team of wrestling ''{{eldritch abomination}}s''[[note]]a man turned into a slug-like abomination after accidentally encountering a Lovecraftian god below the sea, a sorceress from a race of pre-human SnakePeople, and the ''spawn'' of the aforementioned Lovecraftian god-thing[[/note]] in the ''TabletopGame/StreetFighter'' RPG. Ironically, it was ''also'' done by ''Creator/WhiteWolf''.

** Matanza Cueto quickly stole the mantle of the biggest monster in Wrestling/LuchaUnderground. His brother Dario Cueto entered him as the last man in Aztec Warfare, and Matanza made quick work of nearly half the active roster, winning the Lucha Underground title in emphatic fashion.

Another is that Brody and Gonzalez were going to have a match together once, but Brody didn't want to do it because he tought Gonzalez was to small, wich he also said to his face (he called Gonzalez a "fucking midget" to be precise.) Gonzalez then stabbed Brody but apparently did not intend to kill him. Unfortunately, Brody had taken 7 asparins because he wanted to get a good bloodflow in his match (a common trick in Pro Wrestling) and as a result he was bleeding too heavily for the doctors to save him. However, at the end of the day nobody knows why Gonzalez did it.

* During the 1940s, the Russian born wrestler Maurice Tillet was starting to get over big in the United States as The French Angel. He was billed as "The World's Ugliest Man" and pushed as nearly unstoppable for two years as champion of the Boston territory(Known as The American Wrestling Association but unrelated to [[Wrestling/AmericanWrestlingAssociation that one]]) and then of the Montreal Territory. He was one of the shortest examples of this trope, standing only at 5'7, which wasn't very tall even in his era, but he had acromegaly, which gave him a fearsome look. Throughout the forties and fifties, [[FountainOfExpies several other wrestlers would take up angel gimmicks in his wake]].

* Parodied in ''NachoLibre''. The local monster team is made of two hairy, horned, beast men who squeal like pigs...and are only three feet tall...and pull of some of the most impressive offensive maneuvers in the whole film.
