** The version of Link from ''[[TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'' is realistically proportioned, but aside from [[MiniatureSeniorCitizens elderly characters]] he is the shortest adult Hylian in the game, and also the greatest warrior in the land both before and after he was placed in the Shrine of Resurrection. And that's not even getting into the other major races of Hyrule (Rito, Zora, Goron and Gerudo) who are depicted as being quite a bit taller than Hylians as a whole.

** The Misdreavus line is also a notable case. Misdreavus stands 2'04" and weighs 2.2 Ibs, but it has pretty high stats for an unevolved Pokémon[[note]]for reference, Misdreavus has a base stat total of 435, which is higher than Azumarill, Mightyena, Dugtrio and Marowak, to name a few[[/note]]. Mismagius is not much larger, being 2'11" tall and weighing 9.7 Ibs, but has high special stats and speed.



** Mega Mewtwo Y is a shining example of this. It is slightly smaller than regular Mewtwo (at 4'11" from 6'07"). How strong is it? Well, it has the highest Special Attack of all Pokémon out of [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters 720 other competitors]] AND it (along with Mega Mewtwo X) has a [[PowerLevels BST]] of '''780. Higher than [[{{God}} Arceus]].'''

* ''Everything'' in their universe absolutely ''dwarfs'' both ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClank''. Clank is especially noticeable, since he plays the part of AwesomeBackpack most of the time. Ratchet is, supposedly, 5'1. Not ''too'' short by our standards, but almost everyone towers over him in-universe... even his fellow lombax, Alister Azimuth. This becomes even more puzzling when you see him in ''VideoGame/PlaystationMoveHeroes'', where he doesn't even come up to Jak's shoulder. Jak, for the record, is in the running for shortest human(ish) character in [[VideoGame/JakAndDaxter his own series.]] As to the 'powerhouse' part of the trope? Ratchet is a [[OneManArmy one lombax army]] with an unbelievable arsenal of {{BFG}}s, and Clank's a robotic secret agent with loose control over time (depending on the game). You do the math.

* In ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsX'', [[Anime/MashinHeroWataruSeries Wataru]] might beat [[Anime/ArmedTrooperVOTOMS Chirico with his magnum]] and [[Anime/CrossAnge Ange with her machine gun]] when Wataru's final attack involves him slashing the enemy with his sword ''on foot''. And yes, it can be done in space.

** Credit has to go to [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Midna. An imp, about half the size of Link, stops a charging Ganon and then flicks him across the room. With her hair!

** Link in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]'' -- the first incarnation of Link in the games -- is implied to be kind of short, and keeps getting called "Master Shortpants" by Scrapper. However, the guy is a formidable swordsman and a OneManArmy who manages to get '''''[[BigBad Demise]]''''' to refer to him a "paragon".

* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' has a number of these. Most of the non-human characters are slightly built, a little on the short side, have noodle arms, and are very strong. Knuckles especially. And any of the flying characters (Cream can carry Big the Cat, Charmy the Bee can carry Vector the Crocodile).

** Tails deserves special mention - he's 44 pounds (most of which seems to be his tails, which are each about the same size as the rest of him), and can beat up a giant robot with little trouble and no weapons. ''Repeatedly''. He can also punch through solid rock.
** Classic Sonic. He can [[RollingAttack tunnel through solid rock]], and he eats big, strong, ''fast'' things for breakfast. No giant battlemechs lived to talk about him, and the aforementioned Knuckles got [[CurbStompBattle thrashed.]]
** Don't forget [[UltimateLifeform Shadow]]. In the games, he can flip over a bus with one hand, and when he takes his limiters off in the anime he's quite able to take out a fleet of metarex with a single punch.
