* 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.

* This is ''literally'' a tactic employed by [[TheDCU Ray Palmer]], a.k.a. 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.

* 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.

* Cindy of ''ComicBook/CindyAndBiscuit'' is a pre-pubescent girl who regularly beats monsters several times her size to death with pieces of wood. Her EstablishingCharacterMoment in the very first story has her hitting an alien over the head with a stick hard enough to smash its spacesuit helmet to pieces and utterly pulverise its head.

Spider-Man described himself as being able to lift hundreds of times his own bodyweight to mary jane when describing his powers :)
* ''Franchise/SpiderMan'', while average by real life standards (5'10"), is practically a midget compared to the vast majority of his allies and enemies, Wolverine being the notable and perhaps only exception. Spider-Man has the proportionate strength of a spider, which means he could probably lift fifty times his own body weight. He has been known to lift and use CARS as bludgeoning tools without effort.
