* WesternAnimation/{{Popeye}} is much shorter than most bad guys, but always manages to outfight them with ease. His four nephews and even his infant ward Swee'pea have been known to knock guys like Bluto out in one punch. (Having a guy like Popeye as a guardian helps.)

** Soundwave's Cassetticons (and later series' versions of those characters) can get pretty {{Badass}} for their size. The one everyone knows is Rumble: Human-sized, but able to shake the ground and bring giant-er bots down to Earth, as well as being able to hit as hard as any car or truck-bot. The one who takes the cake, is the Marvel comic's version of Buzzsaw, though. You probably don't remember the bird guy who was like Laserbeak but yellow if you've only seen the show, but in the comic, they were quite different characters. Laserbeak's job was a scout and spy, whereas Buzzsaw's job was to ''kick serious skidplate.'' The little guy had a habit of not just holding his own against, but ''[[CurbStompBattle curbstomping]]'' full-size bots. He considered himself an "artist" and his idea of a masterpiece was Autobots who'd been trashed with what he considered great precision and what everyone else considered "Holy Primus did he just ''take down OMEGA SUPREME?!''"
** The ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' incarnation of Laserbeak is the baddest yet. Definitely a case of CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass, he hardly seemed a character in his own right, deployed on extremely rare occasion to be Soundwave's eyes and ears and never being referred to by name. Then came ''Triage,'' when Soundwave left the dogfight he'd gotten into with Wheeljack's ship to Laserbeak. Minicon-sized bird-bot versus building-sized ship piloted by a {{Badass}} Wrecker; who would you bet on? In fact, Laserbeak brought down the ''Jackhammer'' alone and only took one hit. (The one hit, though, was enough to keep Laserbeak down long enough for Ratchet to hack him and get at some Decepticon secrets, but still, ''damn.'' Even so, by the end of the episode, Laserbeak was still mobile, and easily fixed. Not so the ''Jackhammer.'')

** In the 1940s Creator/ChuckJones directed a handful of shorts featuring an African pygmy warrior named Inki. Also appearing in these cartoons was a small, black mynah bird who walked with a signature series of rhythmic hops and skips to the tune of Music/FelixMendelssohn's "Fingal's Cave" overture. The instant any attacker followed this bird around a corner (or otherwise out of the audience's line of sight), the sounds and music of a serious fight would ensue for approximately ten seconds, followed by the bird continuing on his way with nary a feather out of place. The attacker(s), on the other hand, were usually battered rather severely. To give one example, in the short "Caveman Inki", which was set in the stone age (described in the introduction card as being "probably before any of you people were EVEN BORN!"), the world's first last and only carnivorous brontosaurus was tied into several knots.

She's a cute two-foot-tall cyborg monkey who can instantly transform her hands into huge PowerFists that will knock any monster silly, as well as give her a ''monster'' grip. Back that up with what may be centuries worth of martial arts training, and you've got one CuteBruiser who will never disappoint.

''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'':
** Jerry himself becomes a PintSizedPowerhouse after a poison concocted by Tom backfires and gives him superstrength in "Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Mouse".

* [[Franchise/TransformersGeneration1 Brawn]] is one of the smallest Autobots (a little shorter than Bumblebee), but he's got muscle and attitude far beyond his size. Some of his exploits include picking up Soundwave and Megatron and tossing them like rag dolls.
** ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'''s Brawn is ''much'' smaller than Bumblebee but stronger than Bulkhead.
** Soundwave's Cassetticons (and later series' versions of those characters) can get pretty {{Badass}} for their size. The one everyone knows is Rumble: Human-sized, but able to shake the ground and bring giant-er bots down to Earth, as well as being able to hit as hard as any car or truck-bot. The one who takes the cake, is the Marvel comic's version of Buzzsaw, though. You probably don't remember the bird guy who was like Laserbeak but yellow if you've only seen the show, but in the comic, they were quite different characters. Laserbeak's job was a scout and spy, whereas Buzzsaw's job was to ''kick serious skidplate.'' The little guy had a habit of not just holding his own against, but ''[[CurbStompBattle curbstomping]]'' full-size bots. He considered himself an "artist" and his idea of a masterpiece was Autobots who'd been trashed with what he considered great precision and what everyone else considered "Holy Primus did he just ''take down OMEGA SUPREME?!''"
** The ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' incarnation of Laserbeak is the baddest yet. Definitely a case of CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass, he hardly seemed a character in his own right, deployed on extremely rare occasion to be Soundwave's eyes and ears and never being referred to by name. Then came ''Triage,'' when Soundwave left the dogfight he'd gotten into with Wheeljack's ship to Laserbeak. Minicon-sized bird-bot versus building-sized ship piloted by a {{Badass}} Wrecker; who would you bet on? In fact, Laserbeak brought down the ''Jackhammer'' alone and only took one hit. (The one hit, though, was enough to keep Laserbeak down long enough for Ratchet to hack him and get at some Decepticon secrets, but still, ''damn.'' Even so, by the end of the episode, Laserbeak was still mobile, and easily fixed. Not so the ''Jackhammer.'')
** Of course, don't think the Autobots can't pack a lot of mean into a little a space, too. One of Blaster's tape buddies was a rhino called Ramhorn, and he could tackle down any full-size 'con and boasted hip-mounted rocket-launchers (three missiles on each side.) Now, if only he could do something about that [[VerbalTic awful stutter]]. Of course, nobody who's smart gives him any crap about it...



* Bamm-Bamm Rubble, on ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones''.
* ''[[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers Galaxy Rangers]]'': The Kiwi species are sci-fi {{Hobbits}} in most senses of the word. They're a meter high, their [[PlanetOfHats planet and culture specialize in agriculture]], and they're generally a good-natured bunch. [[BewareTheNiceOnes Not that they can't dole out the whoop-ass - it just takes them a while to get them angry enough]]. {{Amba|dassador}}ssador Zozo wears the planetary Hat to an extreme. He frequently takes on {{Mooks}} twice his size and wins - including a flying tackle onto the [[EldritchAbomination Scarecrow Entity]].
* The title character of ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' certainly qualifies. He's absolutely tiny compared to a lot of characters in the series but he's ridiculously destructive. And insane.
* ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'': Jade, when she's not inflicted by WaifFu.
** Also, [[MyBelovedSmother Tohru's mother]], [[MamaBear if you ever mess with him in her presence]].
* From the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'' episode "Dead Reckoning": Some of Grodd's legion of super villains under Lex Luthor's arrive at a Buddhist temple. They encounter a child monk, maybe ten or twelve, who tells them that they cannot enter. Lex sends the Atomic Skull, one of the largest henchmen he brought, to deal with him Skull tells the young monk he won't go easy on him just because he's a kid; the boy responds that he won't either, and proceeds to kick Skull's ass.
* In ''WesternAnimation/KiddVideo'', the gang's tiny fairy companion Glitter can perform godlike feats of strength, enough to lift entire buildings, when she "super sneezes", for a burst of a few minutes. Unfortunately, she genuinely has to sneeze in order to trigger it. Thus, whenever this ability is needed, she or one of her friends has to look for something like dandelions or a pepper shaker to ''make'' her sneeze, and there isn't always one within easy reach.



* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', Starfire is tall, but quite scrawny (though really, everyone but [[TheBigGuy Cyborg]] is, so maybe it's down to the art style), which makes it all the more hilarious when she [[LetsGetDangerous gets dangerous]] and introduces villains to the full wrath of a starbolt-wielding FlyingBrick.
** Blackfire, Starfire's sister. She's somewhat taller, has the same superpowers as her sister, and [[BoxingLessonsForSuperman studied a number of alien martial arts]].
** Robin. He's just a normal and scrawny teenager... [[BadassNormal Who has defeated many superpowered foes]].

to:

* ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'':
** Henery Hawk. He could haul Foghorn Leghorn, the Dog he was always picking on, and a ''horse'', all strung out on a rope.
** And Chester as well. A pint-sized pup who was able to swing Sylvester around.
** Creator/BobClampett's early version of Tweety would also qualify.

In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', Starfire is tall, but quite scrawny (though really, everyone but [[TheBigGuy Cyborg]] is, so maybe it's down the 1940s Creator/ChuckJones directed a handful of shorts featuring an African pygmy warrior named Inki. Also appearing in these cartoons was a small, black mynah bird who walked with a signature series of rhythmic hops and skips to the art style), tune of Music/FelixMendelssohn's "Fingal's Cave" overture. The instant any attacker followed this bird around a corner (or otherwise out of the audience's line of sight), the sounds and music of a serious fight would ensue for approximately ten seconds, followed by the bird continuing on his way with nary a feather out of place. The attacker(s), on the other hand, were usually battered rather severely. To give one example, in the short "Caveman Inki", which makes it all was set in the more hilarious when she [[LetsGetDangerous gets dangerous]] stone age (described in the introduction card as being "probably before any of you people were EVEN BORN!"), the world's first last and introduces villains to only carnivorous brontosaurus was tied into several knots.
** There was also Rocky
the full wrath gangster, of "Rocky and Mugsy" and a starbolt-wielding FlyingBrick.
few other WesternAnimation/BugsBunny shorts, who despite being a tiny man could easily beat up people much bigger than himself.
** Blackfire, Starfire's sister. She's somewhat taller, has Kid Banty the same superpowers as her sister, and [[BoxingLessonsForSuperman studied a number of alien martial arts]].
boxing rooster from the Foghorn Leghorn cartoon "Sock A Doodle Doo".
** Robin. He's just a normal and scrawny teenager... [[BadassNormal Who has defeated many superpowered foes]].The Mighty Angelo, the World's Strongest Flea, from "To Itch His Own".

* Both Aang and Toph from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender.'' '''Especially''' Toph. She's the shortest of the [[FanNickname Gaang]], but she can levitate giant boulders into the air and smash them down on her enemies.
** Bending aside, she's even shown to be the physically strongest teenager in the Gaang. This includes Sokka, whose shoulders her head barely reaches. She seems to be a match for Zuko, who is the oldest, and even taller than Sokka.
* SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'': Korra displays this trait as well. When the White Lotus Society first meets her, she is already bending three elements with skill... at about age four. Even in the series proper, she is by far the shortest non-child character in the cast.
** Additionally, Aang's three airbending grandchildren are capable of taking out large groups of trained adult opponents, despite the fact that none of them are older than 11 years old; the youngest, Meelo, even seems to be the best at combat of the three, despite being no older than ''six''.
** Book 3 gives us the [[RenegadeSplinterFaction Red Lotus]] [[MakingASplash waterbender]] [[HandicappedBadass Ming-Hua]], who's quite a bit shorter than Korra, [[LeanAndMean scrawny]], and one ''[[BloodKnight scary]]'' [[DarkActionGirl lady]].
