** Princess Leia in the original trilogy and her mother Padme in the prequel trilog are played by 5'1" Creator/CarrieFisher and 5'3" Creator/NataliePortman, respectively, but they are both competent {{Action Girl}}s who can hold a fight.
** Shortness and ass-kicking combined seems to run in this family. According to ''The New Essential Guide to Characters'', Luke Skywalker is only 5'6".
** [[Film/TheForceAwakens Rey]] stands 5'6'' too, according to her stats on Wookiepedia.

5'6". Outside the Skywalker family, Rey from ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' is the same height as Luke, but that's rather average for a woman.

-->'''Yoda:''' Size matters not. Look at me! Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well, you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a ''powerful'' ally it is.

** The MCU's version of [[Film/SpiderManHomecoming Spider-Man]] as well. He isn't ''tiny'', but at a rather slim 5'8" he's notably smaller than the other physical powerhouse heroes, and in the airport fight in ''[[Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar]]'' he was capable of taking on {{Super Soldier}}s as a [[UnskilledButStrong mostly untrained teenager]].

* The titular character in ''Film/AntMan''. After being shrunked down, he retains his density, meaning that the average strength of his punch focused on an incredibly small surface makes him act like a bullet. In fact, he has to learn how much strength he has to apply in a single punch so as not to kill everyone he attacks.

** Rocket Raccoon in ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', as long as he has a gun with him (which also tends to be just as big if not bigger than him). [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2 In the sequel]], Groot also fits the Trope; he is, in effect, a child due to what happened in the first film, and less than a foot tall, but still strong enough to knock a full-grown man down.
** Valkyrie in ''Film/ThorRagnarok'' is a rather small woman (her actress is 5'4", which makes her at least four inches shorter than everyone else in the main cast), but she's still an Asgardian with her species' SuperStrength and SuperToughness, as well as a highly trained warrior.

* From the ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture'' films, Marty [=McFly=], played by 5'4" MichaelJFox, can hold his own when facing Biff Tannen [[IdenticalGrandson and his various descendants]] (he almost got killed by Biff's great-grandfather Buford in his first meeting, [[CurbStompBattle but he whooped him in the end]]).
