Little child + SuperStrength = dangerous. These little kids have strength that puts Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk to shame, and an attitude to match. And don't you forget it! Those who mix it up with them the first time and demonstrate their ignorance have a short life expectancy. This tends to be more common in girls than boys for the surprise factor, but it can be found in both.

Compare with SmallGirlBigGun, CuteBruiser, LittleMissBadass and WaifFu. Probably a BadassAdorable. A ChildMage is when they "[[WebComic/EightBitTheater casts the spells that makes the people fall down]]" instead of just pummeling them.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* The best example from ''ShikabaneHime'' is Saki - 10 years old, energetic, and insufferably mischievous. Wields a massive hammer (or, in the manga, a similarly oversized axe) and can chuck cars around.
* In ''{{Manga/Bleach}}'', after Kenpachi's duel with Ichigo, [[KillerRabbit Yachiru]] carries the former on her shoulder to get medical attention. A particularly impressive use of the trope because Kenpachi is very tall and muscular, while Yachiru looks like an eight-year-old but manages to ''effortlessly'' carry him to the top of a building by performing multiple ''two-story high jumps'' while carrying him. One of the author's many hints that she's more dangerous than she looks.
* Both [[DragonBall Goku and his son Gohan]] had this as children. Some of it was innate (due to them being a Saiyan and half-Saiyan respectively), and the [[TrainingFromHell rest...]]
** [[DragonballGT Pan as well.]]
** Brolly even more so. When he was born, his power level was ''10,000''.
* Kintaro Tooyama from PrinceOfTennis. He picked up a motorcycle and threw it at some bullies who he happened to ask directions from.
* Chibi America from ''AxisPowersHetalia'' likes to swing bison around.
* In an episode of ''Anime/InuYasha'' there are two ninja sisters and Suzuna, the younger of them is much stronger than her older sibling. Making it clear by punching a door open and lifting more than twice as much of Demonbones they stole wich deemed to heavy for Suzunas sister.
* ''Anime/MonsterRancher''
** Genki Sakura can carry much bigger girls like dolls. Seen in episode 20 where he lifts Pixie up as if she was weightless.
** Holly gets carried around by Genki even more and she is 4 years older than him. But it doesnt seem to bother her.
** Another character from ''Anime/MonsterRancher'' is Tama, an 11 year old girl with strength even equal to Genki. You can even say she a female version of him. She can knock him and a monster out cold with a single punch...
* In FutureBoyConan the 11 year old protagonist Conan is strong enough to lift boulders and fight of armed soldiers. His trademark is to carry a girl named Lana, what he does in almost every episode.
* Kaolla Su from LoveHina must be mentioned. In on episode she almost creams Keitaro in a bearhug while still sleeping. Shortly after Naru gets dragged in there too.
* ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'' has [[ChineseGirl Rio Wesley]], one of Vivio's 10-year old friends. Her first on-screen battle had her judo throwing Corona's giant rock {{Golem}} into a building, and later in her match with [[JapaneseDelinquents Harry]], she decides to arm herself against the tournament veteran by [[spoiler:physically ripping out a huge chunk of the arena floor with her bare hands and lifting it above her head]].
--> '''Vivio''': [[TheBigGuy Rio's magical and brute strength are the greatest in our team]]!
* ''DrSlump'' created Arale to be this.
* Shizuo Heiwajima from "{{Durarara}}", has been shown to have possessed his god-like super strength since childhood when his younger brother ate some food that belonged to him. He was so enraged that he tried to crush his brother under a refrigerator.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Molly from ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' is a super-strong mutant 11-year-old girl. Who takes this trope to fairly absurd levels, what with her punishing Wolverine and her ability to rip a magically attached cloak through strength. It's been suggested that her powers are Psionic in nature (due to the fact that both her parents were psychics, that she glows when she uses her powers, and that she becomes quickly fatigued when she uses them without showing many signs of physical stress) which might explain the magic-cloak-ripping thing at least a little.
* ''ComicBook/PS238'' has a few of them; the most prominent are Julie "84" Finster, a 7-year-old girl who is a bit neurotic about the fact that she's the 84th [[FlyingBrick F.I.S.S.]] (Flight, Invulnerability, SuperStrength, SuperSpeed)... basically the superhero equivalent of Brand X. She's also strong enough to wrap a superarmoured attacker in a casino sign and catch punches from a guy who looks to be somewhere in the range of nine feet tall and is identified as having a muscle/mass ratio of "Omega Five" (whatever that means, although given the reactions to this fact, "bloody strong" seems appropriate).
* The Creator/HarveyComics character Little Lotta, who combined this with StoutStrength and BigEater.
* Depending on the incarnation, Franchise/{{Superman}} may have had superpowers even from toddlerhood. Most modern versions, however, have him start as a normal kid who gains his powers slowly over his preteen and teenage years.
** ComicBook/{{Superboy}} (aka Conner Kent aka Kon-El) is a teenage clone of Superman who has his powers from when he's first created. ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}, likewise, is usually about a teenager in age with all of Superman's powers.
** Superman's Kryptonian foster son, Chris Kent, plays this trope straight, having powers from the moment his ship landed on Earth. This actually caused some problems, so Superman created a device that looked like a wristwatch that would drain most his powers away. Eventually it absorbed too much, however, and blew up the family's apartment.
* The title character in the [[FrancoBelgianComics Belgian comic]] ''BenoitBrisefer'' (created by Pierre "Peyo" Culliford, the man behind ''Franchise/TheSmurfs'') is a super strong little boy, who goes around and does good deeds such as lifting buses out of traffic jams, blowing out burning houses and helping kittens down from trees by uprooting them (the trees, not the kittens).
* ''[[http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mollydanger/molly-danger Molly Danger]]'', the perpetually 10-year-old, super strong protector of Coopersville.
* While she is by herself merely normal-strength, Nalle-Maja is the ''only'' recurring character in ComicBook/{{Bamse}} other than Bamse (her father) himself to get super-strength from eating [[PowerUpFood dunderhonung]] ('Thunder Honey'). She only uses it in extreme emergencies, as she also gets a three-day stomach ache once the super-strength wears off, but of course stories that focuses on Bamse's children has seen fit to create such emergencies more than once.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Jo [=McCormick=] from ''BigBadBeetleborgs'' fits this perfectly (especially since she's a pre-adolescent girl).
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' has an episode revolving around an actual, working wishing well. One of the wishers was a small boy who was being bullied. He got super-strength, along with a bad temper.

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* Hercules was in canon and the Disney cartoon, able to strangle two snakes as baby. He would later kill a fellow child in music lessons by hitting the other with a harp of all things. Reaching adulthood just made his feats of strength only more impressive.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* May from ''GuiltyGear'', a cute little pirate girl who [[AnchorsAway fights with an anchor as big as she is]].
* [[LuminousArc2 Pop]] the 12 year old Verdere Witch, considered to be a prodigy for being chosen as one at her age, use her Earth Magic to augmented her strength.
* Miles "Tails" Prower, Cream the Rabbit, and Charmy Bee from the ''SonicTheHedgehog'' series. They're strong enough to fly while carrying two other beings. Some of whom are very big and heavy. Tails can even punch through rock in TailsAdventure.
* Quite a few [[TalesSeries Tales games]] have the youngest looking members being [[CuteBruiser Cute Bruisers]], some being [[MightyGlacier Mighty Glaciers]] (like [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Presea]] and [[VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia Karol]]), others being [[LightningBruiser Lightning Bruisers]] (like in the case of [[VideoGame/TalesOfGraces Sophie]]).
* Leah from VideoGame/ChronoCross is one of the youngest characters but also the physically strongest. She wields an axe and throws big rocks single handly.
* There is Fen a character from ''Toshinden4'' who is almost an exact ripoff from Conan the main character in FutureBoyConan. He is a muscular kid who fights with a spear to avenge his grandfathers death. In the ending he just lifts up an older girl and let her sit on his shoulders for no reason besides to show off.
* Toad in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2''. He's not only super strong, he's also super agile.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Ixia from ''Webcomic/{{Cloudscratcher}}'', though mainly as a result of her Child Soldier status.
* ''Webcomic/KarinDou4koma'': Tamaryu has super strength because she's a dragon child and [[DoesNotKnowHerOwnStrength sometimes forgets this]].

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* An early male example is Bamm-Bamm Rubble from ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'', though his Super Strength was mostly done for laughs.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** Lisa Simpson in the ''Treehouse of Horror'' episode where she gains superpowers and becomes Clobber Girl.
** Maggie Simpson is able to swim for her father Homer who is drowning in the sea. She rescues him and swims back, dragging him to the shore. What a toddler!
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'':
** Apple Bloom becomes one of these when the [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E6TheCutiePox Cutie Pox]] makes a weightlifting Cutie Mark appear on her, and is suddenly able to lift a 1,000 pound (or some other unit) barbell with her tail.
** [[spoiler:Baby Pound Cake]] is able to drag [[spoiler:Pinkie Pie]] around while flying.
** Despite remaining unable to achieve full flight for any length of time, Scootaloo is capable of towing Sweetie Belle and Apple Bloom on skis, clear from Ponyville to the Crystal Empire.
* Literature/PippiLongstocking of course! She is the strongest girl in the world, lifting a few guys at once and even her horse.
* ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'': Jade Chan with the Ox Talisman.
* ''TheSuperHeroSquadShow'': One episode had a little girl becoming super strong while holding a fractal.
* Then there is ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' with not one, not two, but [[RuleofThree three of them as our main characters]].
** And their {{Evil Counterpart}}s the Rowdyruff Boys. They are just as strong and as shown in their debut appearence, ''even more efficient fighters then the Powerpuff Girls''.
* Diaperman from Terrytoons' ''TheMightyHeroes''.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' episode, "Take Elmyra Please", Elmyra's baby brother is shown to have super strength, which he uses to bend the bars on his crib and go on a mini-rampage in the living room. However, in the follow-up episode, "Grandma's Dead", he does not display any of his super strengths and acts more like a typical baby.
