* Jean Grey in ''FanFic/ChildOfTheStorm'' appears to be a lovely, sweet-tempered [[BigSisterInstinct (unless you mess with her family)]] young lady. She is, in fact, a lovely, sweet-tempered young lady. She's also on track to be the most powerful psychic in the history of the Earth, and is already more powerful than most. Oh, and more or less only psychic who ''might'' (for now) be more powerful than her? That's her ''teacher,'' Charles Xavier.

Oh, and more or less only psychic who ''might'' (for now) be more powerful than her? That's her ''teacher,'' Charles Xavier. And by the sequel, she's firmly got the upper-hand, power-wise.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]]/{{Franchise/Pokemon}}'' fancomic ''Webcomic/BadThingsWillHappen'' has the baby ghost types (Flame the Gastly, Lyly the Shuppet, and Skull the Duskull). They're only babies, are very sweet and polite...and they managed to stand up to the [[spoiler:'''''[[VideoGame/LuigisMansion Boolossus.]]''''']]

Added DiffLines:

* Kagura Mikazuchi in ''Fanfic/AlternateTailSeries'' [[AgeLift is now 13 years old]] and greatly adores Mira, seeing her as an older sister figure. That doesn't stop her from being a girl able to control gravity and wield a sword that can cause calamities and was even able to [[spoiler: hold off against Azuma for a few minutes before being ultimately defeated.]]


*** and finally, last but not least, ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome TOTALLY ANNIHILATING THE PERSONIFICATION OF DEVIANTART ITSELF.]]''

Oh, and one of the few psychics who is (for now) more powerful than her? That's her ''teacher,'' Charles Xavier.
** Diana is a kind, cute, and gentle preteen girl. She's also a future Wonder Woman, the daughter of Hercules and Hippolyta, and a LittleMissBadass who's already a 3 or 4 on the SuperWeight scale, capable of performing ''very'' scary feats when angered, and will one day be solidly in category 5.

Added DiffLines:

* Sherry Birkin of ''FanFic/ResidentProject'' is a ten-year-old girl (who looks younger than she is), in pink shoes and floofy socks. She's also a ''[[OneManArmy shinigami]]''.









to:

* In ''Fanfic/ForumOfThrones'', Kersea has a petite physique and is usually described as cute by others, which does not mean that she can't kick plenty of ass. Her best friend Raenna is similarly slim and small and no less of a badass.


* ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' has Cream the Rabbit. Dear ''lord''. The fact that she's considered a MemeticBadass in-universe by TheLegionsOfHell is just the icing on the cake.
** Cosmo and Tails both count too - especially Tails once he gets control over his LovecraftianSuperpower.


* Despite generally being a pretty serious setting, it's considered pretty amusing when [[SelfInsert Ume]] the protagonist of [[Fanfic/SugarPlums Sugar Plums]] defeats, intimidates or outclasses older opponents. Why? Because Ume is a 4'2" (128 cm) tall twelve year old girl, who wears bright pink and purple clothing and looks like a porcelain doll. This is lampshaded once or twice since in the world of [[Anime/Naruto shinobi]] you never judge a person solely from their looks.

Added DiffLines:


* Emily Hawthorne from Fanfic/PokemonJohtoQuest gradually becomes this as the series progresses.

Added DiffLines:

* If UglyCute counts, then Tug of ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'' is this, given his extreme agility. To wit:
--> Tug hit the wall straight on, somehow rebounded into a tuck roll, let his back right paw touched the ground for one-eighth of a second, launched twenty feet from that one push, and managed to hit Hobbes at roughly seven thousand miles per hour.
* FanFic/AGrowingAffection has a number, mostly connected to Hinata; her familiars Sol and Lune, her 'pet' Ni-ne [[spoiler: a.k.a. the Two-Tails Cat]]. Also the Goddess of Death appears as a cute little girl.
* [[GenkiGirl Mariko Aratani]] from the ''Manga/LuckyStar'' fanfics ''Fanfic/HolidayVacation'' and ''Fanfic/LuckyStarAfterStory'' definitely qualifies. She is a cute tomboyish girl with a badass streak. In Chapter 11 of After Story for instance, during an earthquake, she saved her best friend Chiyoko's life by jumping on top of her when part of the building came down on top of them. Did we mention that said earthquake was the ''2011 Tohoku Earthquake?''
* In the semi-genderbent Sword Art Online fanfiction story ''Fanfic/TheKiritaChronicles'', Kirigaya Kazuta is capable of being badass both in the real world due to taking karate classes and in the virtual world.
* ''FanFic/MegamiNoHanabira'': The main characters are all highschool girls, and quite adorable. They’re also VERY good at handling [[{{Mons}} demons.]]
* [[Fanfic/DeliverUsFromEvilSeries Mortality]] has this with [[CuteBruiser Watson.]]. Like his (BBC counterpart) you do NOT want to mess with [[TheLeader John Watson]] or [[LivingEmotionalCrutch his friend.]] Oh, and good luck if you gloat over a dying Sherlock-the end result is.....well, unpleasant.
** [[TooDumbToLive Smith found this one out the hard way.]]
** Oh, and don't [[VillainsWantMercy beg Watson for mercy]] [[BerserkButton if you've played a part in Holmes's long-term imprisonment.]] You'll wind up [[GoodIsNotSoft dead.]] As in, ''murdered.''
** [[TooDumbToLive The captured criminal found that one out the hard way.]]
* Jack in ''Cave Story Versus I.M. Meen'', without a doubt. Starting out as a simply {{adorkable}} little [[TheWoobie woobie]], Jack [[TakingALevelInBadass becomes progressively more and more badass over the course of the story]], from defeating a giant mold monster [[VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay based off of the Great Mighty Poo]], narrowly escaping [[SanitySlippage complete mental breakdown,]] literally [[BreakingTheFourthWall breaking the fourth wall,]] and ''[[FinishHim tearing the skin off of Meen's face with his bare hands and pushing him off a cliff...]]''
** ...to powering his way through a giant tower maze of death with a little help from his friends, utterly destroying Meen [[BadassBookworm through sheer brainpower alone]] even after being ''[[IncredibleShrinkingMan shrunken down to microscopic size,]]'' going through fanfiction hell itself...
*** and finally, last but not least, ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome TOTALLY ANNIHILATING THE PERSONIFICATION OF DEVIANTART ITSELF.]]''
*** Using '''[[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure ZA WARUDO]]''', no less. And to think he was actually one of the freaking [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Mimigas]] in ''VideoGame/CaveStory''?
* Agent Bucky Bear in ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/series/200978 Agent Barnes and Agent Bear]]'' is a robotic teddy bear with a self-aware AI based on ComicBook/BuckyBarnes. He's more of a stealth and infiltration specialist than a physical powerhouse, given his size, but a combat-capable intelligent stuffed toy is still pretty impressive.
* ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' has Cream the Rabbit. Dear ''lord''. The fact that she's considered a MemeticBadass in-universe by TheLegionsOfHell is just the icing on the cake.
** Cosmo and Tails both count too - especially Tails once he gets control over his LovecraftianSuperpower.
* ''Fanfic/AWorldOfBloodyEvolution'' is a crossover fic where Yang Xiao Long, the adorable teenage CuteBruiser of Team WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}, carves through whole ranks of [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Ork Boyz and Chaos Space Marines]] [[CurbStompBattle with ease]], thanks to her BattleAura letting her NoSell bolter rounds and melee blows, and her SuperStrength letting her pulverise Astartes power armour. [[spoiler: Between all this ''and'' her ability to FlashStep on top, Weiss Schnee is arguably even deadlier.]] Probably the only ''Warhammer 40000'' crossover fic you'll ever read where the notoriously overpowered denizens of the grimdark far future ''are clearly outmatched''.
* This is how Wonder Woman is depicted in ''Fanfic/SorrowfulAndImmaculateHearts''. She's a centuries-old magical warrior who is charmingly conscientious about learning the ins and outs of the world of men, unironically enthusiastic about cute baby animals, and genuinely considers panda-themed hoodie pyjamas the best Christmas gift ever.
* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' has several, but chief among them is Cynthia during her oneshot. At 10 years old she was raiding tombs on her own and winning fights with older children.
