Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'': Being a Harvin (an entire race of short and stout people, like dwarves), General Furias has a height complex and takes offence to anyone who mentions it.


* Mike the ''Mouse'' from ''WesternAnimation/{{Sing}}'', who speaks up to ''everyone'' who is much bigger than him. He also spends most of his time belittling GentleGiant Meena, [[spoiler:[[PetTheDog until he witnesses her singing]]]].

Added DiffLines:

** Kled, another Yordle, may actually be worse. He doesn't get as angry about short jokes, but that's because [[AxCrazy it's hard to imagine how Kled could possibly get angrier than he usually is]].

Added DiffLines:

* The titular ''WesternAnimation/KickButtowski'' not only dislikes anyone who mocks him for his height, he also dislikes anyone who calls him "cute".

Added DiffLines:

* Another Mob example: Carlo Gambino who was 5'6 and at the height of his power not only controlled the most powerful family(Gambino, duh) but was the defacto Boss of Bosses of the national crime commission.


* The late mob boss Nicodemous "Little Nicky" Scarfo. Headed the Philadelphia/Atlantic City Mob in the 80's. He was 5'5 and would have anyone killed if he even suspected them of disloyalty. Considered to be the most violent boss in the history of the American Cosa Nostra.

* Lynn and Lola Loud from ''WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse''. They're both very short for their age but it is more noticeable for Lynn because despite being thirteen she is quite a bit shorter than her eleven year old brother and the same height as her eight year old sister. Both are very bossy and quick to anger.

Both are very bossy and quick to anger. build.


* Small dogs are generally more aggressive than large dogs due to the fact that they have to work so much harder to maintain their place in the hierarchy. Their higher metabolism also gives them more forceful personalities in general, whether friendly or mean. Even the tiniest and cutest dogs have the instincts of hunters. In fact, many small dog breeds (like terriers) were specifically bred to hunt and kill vermin. Compounding the problem, many owners fail to train their small dogs properly, believing that their MisterMuffykins is harmless.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/CrookedHouse'', PosthumousCharacter Aristide Leonides is described as being 'almost a midget'. This is implied to have fuelled his aggressive nature, leading to his ruthlessness in business, his fanatical anti-Communism, and his need to dominate and control his family.


* ''TopGear'''s Richard "Hamster" Hammond, although he isn't actually ''very'' short. The Napoleon stuff comes from working with a "[[TheBigGuy seven foot oaf]]" who is [[DeadpanSnarker big on the mockery]]. Nonetheless, at about 5'7", he's the smallest of the hosts and also probably the most [[ClusterFBomb foul-mouthed]] and adventurous.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'': Implied with Commander Peepers, since his present in "The Gift II- The Giftening" is a pair of platform boots that make him twice as tall has his boss.
* ''WesternAnimation/FinalSpace'': Lord Commander is as diminutive as he is AxCrazy, and when one of his captives laughs at him for his size, Lord Commander telekineticly strangles him.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/DarlingInTheFranxx'', the {{Tsundere}} squad leader Ichigo is easily its shortest member. The tallest is her partner, Goro, whose (comparative) serenity and compassion often offset her bossiness.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/{{Drive}}'': Emperor Cruz might be a ruthless galactic tyrant, but he doesn't have the most imposing figure in the Empire, hence his propensity for larger-than-life [[http://www.drivecomic.com/archive/100313.html holograms]].
