Characters that are stronger than they seem. Compare SuperStrongChild and GlacierWaif.

* The title character from ''Atom Ant''
* Jo [=McCormick=] from ''{{Series/Beetleborgs}}''.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'''s Mirajane Strauss, who's strong enough to be noted by [[HeroKiller Azuma]] as a demon, even when not using her powers, with just one kick.
* Buttercup from ''ThePowerpuffGirls'', who has been considered the toughest fighter.
* Ashley Spinelli from ''{{WesternAnimation/Recess}}''.
* [[Series/TaiyouSentaiSunVulcan Vul Panther]], [[Series/RescueSentaiGoGoFive Go Yellow]], and [[Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger Gosei Yellow]] from Franchise/SuperSentai. They're all {{Kid Appeal Character}}s that double as TheBigGuy.
** [[Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger Gokai Yellow]] also plays this trope for developing acute reflexes in combat.
* Starfire in ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'': build of a willowy teenager, strength of a FlyingBrick
* [[BigBad Megabyte]] from ''WesternAnimation/{{Reboot}}'', and that's [[HeroicBuild saying]] [[SculptedPhysique something]]. You know he's tough, but then he chases down a speeding A.B.C. (a huge tank), leaps over it, stops it, picks it up, and destroys it. ''With his bare hands.''
* Karen Ichijou from ''SchoolRumble''.
* In ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'', Mario can grab Bowser by the tail, giving him a chance to do a giant swing.
** Toad in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'' specializes at lifting up hard stuff.
** The Mario Bros in general. They look like fairly average plumbers, but go toe-to-toe with godlike beings (and win) ''frequently''.
* Momo from ''[[VideoGame/RivalSchools Project Justice]]'' has the Giant Swing special throw, per se.
* Kirin from ''Manga/KoufukuGraffiti'', who is seen carrying several boxes of charcoal, which Shiina comments is more than enough to cook for several dozen people.
* GothicLolita in ''Comics/{{Livewires}} looks like a [ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Gothic Lolita Waif], but is in fact a super-dense android and the team's bruiser.
