* In ''Literature/TheDarkProfitSaga'', [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame Gorm Ingerson]] is your typical dwarf, shorter than a human or an elf, although taller than a goblin and about the same size as an average gnome (although those vary in size greatly, depending on the clan). He's pretty stocky, though, and is good with an axe-and-shield combo. Gorm also happens to be TheBerserker, and when he flies into a rage, there's no stopping him. During the climax, he [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomps]] an ogre several times his size without getting hit once and then proceeds to attack an entire battalion of mercs. [[OurElvesAreDifferent Kaitha]] is the only one who recognizes Gorm's rage for what it is, remembering the stories about a famous berserker nicknamed Pyrebeard, and casually tells her party members that the ogre should've run when he had the chance.

* ''And I Darken'': Radu observes with some amusement how Lada, always the fiercest fighter in the room, is also always the shortest—her men mention it occasionally too. She's also an incredibly skilled fighter who, amongst another things, [[ManBitesMan took down a trained assassin by herself when she was twelve]] and has since become the sultan's personal bodyguard, become proficient in cannon firing, and [[spoiler: launched a guerrilla war.]]

** Dobby. Being a house elf, he's about three feet tall, but push him far enough, and he can use magic capable of knocking a dark wizard with Lucius Malfoy's skills off his feet.

* The silent protagonist of Ogden Nash's poem [[https://allpoetry.com/Adventures-Of-Isabel "The Adventures of Isabel"]] probably fits. (Nash doesn't specify age, but seeing as the character - who is based on his daughter - eats a zwieback, one can assume she's a child.)

* ''Literature/{{Rihannsu}}'': ''Khre'Riov'' Ael t'Rllaillieu is described in her first appearance as being quite a small woman, certainly much shorter and less bulky than Captain Jim Kirk. However, being Romulan, she's stronger than the average human, and she's highly trained in hand-to-hand combat--one fight scene in ''My Enemy, My Ally'' has Kirk catch sight of her taking down a man half-again her size with ease.

** The smaller races (such as the Nac Mac Feegle and the Dwarves) are explicitly stronger than humans because all the same amount of physical strength is focused into a smaller body. In case you haven't been introduced to the Feegle, they're literally a few inches tall, and four of them can steal a ''cow'', one to each hoof. And they fight ''dirty''.

** And then there are the Clan from ''Discworld/TheAmazingMauriceAndHisEducatedRodents'', who, within about the first two pages, disable a highwayman by running up his pantlegs. Oh, [[RuleOfFunny and then they tie his shoelaces together]]. And Darktan is just plain BadAss.

** The Red King, who is slightly over five feet and is quite possibly the single most {{Badass}} vampire in the world, with the only possible exceptions being the Kings of the other two courts at full power [[spoiler: or rather, he ''was'']].

** Andrew in particular, to the point where even people accustomed to violence and strength find him intimidating. Matt is 6'6" and has an eight pack and he's still afraid of Andrew.
