''The Miniavengers'' ("''Les Minijusticiers''") is a French comic book and cartoon series created by Zep, the creator of ''ComicBook/{{Titeuf}}'', and Hélène Bruller. The premise is simple: a city with children who are represented by [[FunnyAnimal animals]], each with a [[FatalFlaw fault]] (laziness, stutters, small, big, mischievous, discreet ...) [[PersonalityPowers which will become a super power]]. At the end of each episode, they give the audience a [[AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle little advice]]...Their slogan is "Great default but max power". It is alternatively titled ''The Minimighty Kids''. The animated series currently consists of two seasons with 78 episodes of 7 minutes each.

The second season is started with a half-hour special that seems to Retcon the first season. In the special, only six of the 78 kids who experienced being superheroes regain their powers (this time permanently) and decide to form a little SuperTeam. The stories now have improved plots in which these six kids help their classmates and other people from the neighborhood while also having predicaments of their own.

Other than France, is currently also aired in Mexico under the name ''Grandes Minipoderosos'' (a loose translation of the alternative title seen above). The Mexican dub includes a few gags and references to Spanish songs, figures such as soccer players and even the channel that airs the series (Mexico City's Channel 22). It also airs in Spain as ''Superminihéroes''.

Most tropes can be found on the [[Characters/TheMiniavengers character page]].


* ADayInTheLimelight: Every character has their own episode centred around their grievences with their main fault.
* AdultsAreUseless: Do we ever see them do ''anything''?
* AuthorAppeal: Zep sure likes [[MessyPig pigs]], doesn't he.
* AWizardDidIt: It is never explained how the kids get their powers.
** [[spoiler:StarPower]]: In the half-hour special, its revealed that the power comes from [[spoiler:a magical star]].
* BadassAdorable: Some of the kids get pretty cool powers ([[PlayingWithFire Simon]] for example) and look both cool and cute using them.
* BlindIdiotTranslation: Read the description.
* BroughtDownToNormal: As soon as the super powered kid learns their lesson, their power vanishes along with all the effects it had.
* DependingOnTheWriter: Which of the kids (excluding the focus character) are nice and which are [[KidsAreCruel little jerks]].
* FatalFlaw: Every character has one.
* GangOfBullies: The antagonists.
* GrowingMusclesSequence: When a kid gets their super power, their bodies buff up to an ''[[UpToEleven absolutely absurd]]'' degree, until they're bigger than '''the Earth itself'''. Fortunately the sequence reverses soon afterwards, or the series would end up being [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever something else entirely]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UW1z2-pbmxo See for yourself]].
