* [[EquestrianSports Show jumping and eventing]] at the international level often favor taller (16.2 and up), more powerfully built horses. Yet the silver medalist in show jumping at the 1968 Olympics was Stroller, a 14.1-hand pony. Similarly, the 14.2-hand Theodore O'Connor captured team and individual gold medals in eventing at the 2007 Pan-American games. The 16-hand, slightly-built thoroughbred mare Touch of Class won individual and team gold medals in showjumping at the 1984 Olympics (over the 17-hand trakhener stallion Abdullah), and the 15.3 mare Headley Brittania is one of only a handful of horses to have won all three of the top eventing competitions in the world (Badminton and Burghley in the U.K and Kentucky in the U.S).

** Martial arts masters, physical trainers, etc. all universally note that the key to Lee's power wasn't the unnecessarily large muscles one usually associates with "strong men;" instead, Lee's body was toned so perfectly that he had somewhere in the range of 0 to 5% body fat, with every muscles being trained solely for absurd explosions of strength and speed without any wasted effort or force. [[UpToEleven The result was a musculature more defined and proportionally perfect than most anatomical models]].

* Finnish Air Force. Never consisting of more than two fighter regiments, one bomber regiment and one reconnaissance regiment, it nevertheless managed to score more than 1500 confirmed victories against the Soviets and create 106 [[AcePilot fighter aces]] in WWII. Even today, Finnish pilots flying F-18 Hornets managed to score 100-6 against their NATO opponents in Frisian Flag 2013 excercize.

* While not exactly a small aircraft by any standards, the [[CoolPlane B-25 Mitchel]] of US Army Air Force fame in WorldWarTwo was still smaller then most other bombers of the war, but it was probably the single most versatile bomber of the war as a result. The most widely used version, the B-25J, was used in just about every attack role imaginable. Aside from the defensive machine guns (which the B-25 had in abundance), the bomber also had 4-6 .50cals fixed forward for strafing duties, with a later version even mounting a 75mm cannon in the nose. It would be this bombers small size, and still impressive bomb capacity (3,000lbs), that would make it the perfect choice to launch the Doolittle Raid with, since the bomber was small enough, and[[note]]after shedding unnecessary weight[[/note]] light enough to launch from the Aircraft Carrier Hornet. Compared to the damage B-29s would do some years later, the raid itself did little physical damage, but B-25s were still able to send the message to Japan that they really DID wake a sleeping giant.

* Johannes Lichtenauer, one of the prominent Medieval figures in [[UsefulNotes/EuropeanSwordsmanship German School Of Swordsmanship]] considered an ideal knight to be rather small and concord in stature than big and well-built, and having rather stamina than strength. [Strong, tall and well-built men would make fine [[AnnoyingArrows archers]].]
