** 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 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.

** [[TheScrappy Scrappy-Doo]] ''thinks'' he's this, but he's really just TheLoad.
** Well, he does lift Scooby and Shaggy with one hand at least twice. So he has the strength for it... he just tends to borrow his strategies from LeeroyJenkins.

* In ''WesternAnimation/KiddVideo'', the gang's tiny fairy companion Spinner 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.

* Amethyst from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' is pretty strong even by Gem standards despite being as short as Steven. "Too Far" reveals that [[spoiler:she should have been ''even stronger'' and LargeAndInCharge to boot because she's a Quartz Gem. However, she stayed in the ground too long and came out an "overcooked runt" as Jasper put it.]]
