* ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'': The {{Deuteragonist}} Mash Kyrielight is an otherwise simple, ordinary, sweet girl (with armor [[FormFittingWardrobe no skimpier than most]] females in the game). However, as you might guess by her Agility stat of D, her Endurance stat of A+, and the [[LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe massive shield she carries]], her role in any party is almost purely defensive.

Compare with CuteBruiser, where a fragile-looking character is strong, but not slow. Also, like that trope, this trope is not confined to female characters. Often feature MusclesAreMeaningless. This trope is the inversion of {{Acrofatic}}. May be a SuperStrongChild depending on age.

* In the more recent ''{{Franchise/Kirby}}'' games, Kirby can take a pretty solid hitting before dying (Not to mention ''{{Videogame/KirbysEpicYarn}}'', where he's just straight-up invincible.)

** [[TheEmperor Edelgard]] from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemThreeHouses'' takes this a step further, with she having a complete set of armor, the highest overall growths in the game, specially having great numbers in Strenght and Charisma, and getting a good defense stat despite her waif aesthetic and her canon size of [[PintSizedPowerhouse 158 cm]], also she uses a gigantic axe that she grabs with just one hand.

* Heart Girl from the ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse''. Imagine an 8 year old girl with {{Superman}}'s strength and invulnerability. And nothing else. She moves and reacts about as quickly as you'd expect for an awkward pre-pubescent girl who isn't all that athletic or coordinated. But she punches like a mountain.
