Could this trope be possible in Real Life, because from what I've read and heard, women have less muscle-mass than men, but have greater flexibility to make up for it.

Several of the listed examples (e.g. Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha's Vita and Mahou Sensei Negima!'s Asuna) aren't slow enough to count as Mighty Glaciers, though they do have the offensive and defensive power aspects down. Do they still count as Glacier Waif?

Asuna never learned the Shundo technique as far as I know. She's a great marathon runner, and can amp up her reaction-time and overall muscle output using Kanka, but relative to the rest of the cast she may as well be a snail without that move.

In answer to the original question: no. This trope is Mighty Glacier + small, and Mighty Glacier is defined as 1.) strong, 2.) slow. Someone who's just strong + small without the slow would be a Pint-Sized Powerhouse.

Not familiar with Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha or Mahou Sensei Negima! so I'll leave it to those who are to decide whether those examples are slow enough to count; just make sure that it's established in the example entry that they are slow to avoid Zero Context Examples.

Should Gogo Yubari from {{Kill Bill} be added?
