** Steven himself also becomes quite strong as the series progresses, at one point demonstrating this by easily lifting a trunk on his own that two grown men struggled with.

* Bamm-Bamm Rubble, on ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' can lift and carry a grown man with easy. Unfortunately, he often DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength.

** The end credits feature a rib place with a petite waitress who can carry a rack of ribs that seems twice as big as herself, which tips Fred's car over from the weight.

* 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.)

** Maud Pie, Pinkie's CoolBigSis, isn't any smaller than the rest of the cast, but she's certainly no more stronger-looking than your average mare. Turns out she can [[spoiler: reduce boulders to dust with her bare hooves with ease]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheTwelveTasksOfAsterix'' has the third task of winning a fight. The big doors open to a very small martial artist, who can easily throw Obelix around.

** 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.'')

* WesternAnimation/{{Droopy}} Dog. Usually, his tactic is psyching his opponent out, or letting him beat himself up; but when push comes to shove, Droop will face down his foe; tell him, "You know what? [[ThatMakesMeFeelAngry That makes me mad]]", and proceed to beat the ever-living crap out of him.

* WesternAnimation/MightyMouse, obviously. Most of his foes are ''far'' bigger than he is, and in many shorts, he can curb-stomp them rather easily. (The formula usually had him only show up in the climax of his own cartoon, pulling a BigDamnHeroes after the villain had already wrecked havoc for a while.)



* In the ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' cartoon "Jerry's Cousin", the titular cousin is called Muscles Mouse, and the cats where he lives live in fear of him.

* WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck. Many times, his strength isn't just due to his UnstoppableRage, but also sheer determination. For example in "Canvas Back Duck", Donald manages to defeat boxing champ [[WesternAnimation/{{Pete}} Peewee Pete]] by simply ''tapping'' him ever so slightly on his jaw (causing it to shatter like a window; Pete has a "[[VisualPun glass jaw]]").
** In "WesternAnimation/TappedOut", similar to "Canvas Back Duck", but more deliberately, Donald manages to take down Pete as a pro-wrestling champ (when Mickey failed to do so) after the latter angered him after inadvertently [[BerserkButton ruining his nachos]] (which he does ''not'' like others to so much as ''touch'').
