* In a ''{{Garfield}}'' strip, Garfield climbs up a tree where a bird is singing, saying, "Ready or not, here I come!" Then there are sounds of a ferocious fight, and Garfield is thrown out of the tree, beaten to a pulp. "He was ready..." groans Garfield.
* In the MarvelComics ''{{Transformers}}'' comic, there was Buzzsaw. From the show you know him as "the bird-thing we rarely see who looks like Laserbeak but in orange instead of red.'' In the comics, he makes a habit of utterly handing full-sized Autobots (and more-than-full-size Autobots, such as OMEGA SUPREME) their skidplates. Worse, he's psychotic even by Decepticon standards: he considers himself an artist and the precise mauling of his enemies the ultimate in beauty. If you ran into him, you'd laugh at the Minicon-sized bird that's acting like he's going to fight you or something for about two seconds... then you'd find yourself being agonizingly turned into a "masterpiece."

* The Female in "ComicBook/TheBoys". A teenage Japanese girl who is (maybe) five feet tall, she is ''the'' biggest physical threat in a whole team of them (well, apart from [[TheEveryman Hughie]]). It takes all the others [[spoiler: and Vas to take down [[FlyingBrick Stormfront]]; she held her own against him when they first met, ripped his eye out ''by herself'', and survived the encounter (although, admittedly, that was because he wanted to use her as bait)]]. Frenchie even says that were it a straight-up fight between her and [[spoiler: Butcher]], it would be over very quickly, and in her favor.

* His OppositeSexClone[=/=]daughter ''ComicBook/{{X 23}}'' is generally depicted as being ''even smaller'', (both shorter and ''far'' more lightly built) and may be an even ''more'' dangerous fighter. Although Laura's skeleton isn't bonded with adamantium, as with Logan her HealingFactor pushes her strength somewhere beyond the human peak for a woman of her size. It's ''really'' saying something that in ''VideoGame/MarvelAvengersAlliance'' she's considered a Bruiser. This puts her in the same class as ''Hercules, Hulk and Thor''.

* This is ''literally'' a tactic employed by [[TheDCU Ray Palmer]], a.k.a. ComicBook/TheAtom: he shrinks down to a tiny size, [[SquareCubeLaw but his mass doesn't change]][[note]]Or, rather, he has just as much control over his mass as he does over his size, so it's basically whatever he wants it to be[[/note]], which means he can pack a wallop... or tear through somebody like a freakin' bullet.

* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' in ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' is the smallest member of the Red Lantern Corps. She's also the strongest of them by far (since she's [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Kryptonian]]).

* Here's an extreme example. In ''{{Peanuts}}'', "World War II" (a.k.a. the cat that lives next door) is a vicious creature that Snoopy is afraid of (and yet someone that he always insults) who often rips his doghouse to pieces. The rare times they've fought have always ended badly for Snoopy... And yet, somehow, [[spoiler: ''Woodstock won a fight with this cat!'' After it had beaten up both Snoopy and Linus, no less! How Woodstock did this is a mystery.]]
* Molly 'Bruiser' Hayes from ''Comicbook/{{Runaways}}'' is a superstrong mutant and a preteen girl. Marvel's website actually named her the fourth toughest female on their roster, following SheHulk, Comicbook/MsMarvel, and [[Characters/XMen80sMembers Rogue]].

* [[CaptainAmerica Steve Rogers]] was once BroughtDownToNormal, something that for him meant returning to be a scrawny and sickly-looking guy. He could still unleash a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on ''three thugs injected with the SuperSoldier serum'', thanks to months of training, years of combat experience and the thugs letting him grab a fire extinguisher.

* Similar to TheAtom, anyone who uses Pym Particles (most notably, founding Avengers ComicBook/AntMan and ComicBook/TheWasp) can shrink down to the size of an insect while maintaining the strength of a normal-sized person.

* [[JusticeSocietyofAmerica Al Pratt]], [[BadassNormal the original Atom]], was only 5'1". That's where his nickname originally came from - he was small. But he took up boxing and later actually gained super strength.
