* ''Manga/DoctorSlump'' has both Arale and Gatchan, who are able to easely defeat anything as if it was a game. During a [[TimeTravel trip to prehistoric time]], the latter was able to easely stop a giant meteor that the former then sent back to space with a simple headbutt. Said meteor turned out to be the moon.

** [[RobotKid Obotchaman]] was created with the same design as Arale above, and so he possesses the same SuperStrength that Arale has while also being as tall -- er, short -- as she is.


** Quitela and Iwne from Universes 4 and 1 are shorter than the other Gods of Destruction, but they are [[PersonOfMassDestruction no less powerful]]. Notably, Iwne's universe has the highest mortal rating out of all the universes, while Quitela was the only God besides Beerus who wasn't defeated in the Manga's Zen Exhibition Match.

** Quitela and Iwne from Universes 4 and 1 are shorter than the other Gods of Destruction, but they are [[PersonOfMassDestruction no less powerful]]. Notably, Iwne's universe has the highest mortal rating out of all the universes, meaning he’s the smartest and most competent of the Gods of Destruction, while Quitela was the only God besides Beerus who wasn't defeated in the Manga's Zen Exhibition Match.


* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' has Red Hot Chili Pepper, which is much smaller than the stand user and hits as fast and as hard as [[LightningBruiser Star Platinum]]. It's actually a better stand than Killer Queen in stats although it doesn't have as many abilities.

** Narancia is the smallest and most underfed of Team Buccellati, but his Stand, a miniature plane called Aerosmith, relies a lot on brute force rather than strange, unconventional powers. Its three main functions are pumping the target full of lead, dropping a bomb on them, or picking them up on a carbon dioxide radar so it can single them out for the first two. Narancia himself can even dent a car with just his foot if he's been riled up enough.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'', Izuku Midoriya is one of the shortest guys in his class at a middling [=5'6''=]. He's also armed with One For All, one of the most powerful Quirks in the world.


* Kabane, the protagonist of ''Manga/KemonoJihen'', is only 4'9'' and 105 pounds at (probably) 13 years old. At the same time, he's the main muscle of the Paranormal Counseling Office, with his Half-Ghoul SuperStrength allowing him to easily tear most things to shreds with his bare hands.

* Ushio Hinomaru of ''Manga/HinomaruZumou''. So short that legally, he's not allowed to become a professional sumo. But as everyone who steps into a ring with him learns, he's a brick wall in a compact size. Able to topple people twice his size in one solid hit.

He takes everything head on ans throws men twice his size in one solid hit.size.

Added DiffLines:

* Mashiro Torasawa, Torako's older brother in ''Manga/TorakoAnmariKowashichaDameDaYo'', is a thirty-four year old who is OlderThanTheyLook and is very easily mistaken for a child. He is also the first person in the series shown capable of handling Torako's [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength insane and uncontrolled strength]]. He repeatedly dodges her or throws her with enough force to break floors and walls, both sides doing it with a smile as Mashiro describes it as their version of goofing around. He credits his taking care of Torako in place of their parents as the source of his own strength, as simply ''surviving'' her naturally made him stronger.


* Wendy Marvell in ‘’Anime/FairyTail’’ is a shy featherweight of a 12-year-old girl, who also happens to be the [[BlowYouAway Sky Dragon Slayer]]. She is fully capable of producing wind from gale- to hurricane-force, and can restore her {{Mana}} essentially by breathing.

Added DiffLines:

* Asta from ''Manga/BlackClover''. Nicknamed "Little Ball of Muscle", he's short for his age (5'1") but able to wield a massive sword longer than he is tall with ease. Justified, because he spent years building up muscle to make up for lack of magical prowess, giving him CharlesAtlasSuperpower.


** Hiei. 4'9 [[AnimeHair without his hair]] and can beat up guys twice or three times his size with ease (and when introduced was much weaker than when he was a child). Kurama may also qualify- he's not short, but he's pretty skinny.

* Sagara Sousuke from ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'' against pretty much all of his major enemies / rivals. Every single guy he has a serious fight with is built ''much'' larger than him, [[PickOnSomeoneYourOwnSize is older]], and has a whole lot more muscle than him. However, he holds his own ''very'' well, and pretty much always wins in the end.
