Since Takashichea is doing this for the new Amazonian Beauty and Brawn Hilda pages -- see here and here -- I thought I'd do the same for the Cute Bruiser page.

What is a Cute Bruiser? Check the wiki page!

Suggest a character here and provide an image if you can!

My vote goes to Morgiana. I'll get a better shot for her.

@Acura_Max: Ha, she definitely qualifies but I think the main image should probably be a proper Japanese anime character.

@Daniel_Newton:

May Chang from FMA. Is Mikasa a cute bruiser? She is pretty toned.

She was a Cute Bruiser when she was younger (think back to the early episodes where she was beating up bullies bigger than her and throwing Eren around easily) then she toned up and became an Amazonian Beauty when she joined the military. I mentioned it on the Amazonian Beaty page in the notable examples section.

I think my vote goes to Morgiana so far. She's popular and fits the trope perfectly.

There are a ton of anime girls that fit the bill, but I also like Morgiana since she is more recent.

@Daniel_Newton:

"The Cute Bruiser is like the smaller cousin of the Amazonian Beauty."

Does this mean younger, or just physically smaller (but not necessarily young).

@bigz007: Physically. I must admit I almost typed younger and then realized this is anime we're talking about, where a "little girl" can actually be hundreds/thousands of years old depending on the anime.

If you want specifics the TV Tropes page does a good job of explaining it. I might have to add a little more to our page for clarification.

@bigz007: Although I'm pretty sure she's supposed to appear young, whether she actually is or not. A little granny with super strength for example wouldn't qualify.

Right. Appear young or is young, because there is a difference.

How about this for example. Mina Tepes is small, appears young and she could totally qualify for this concept, but she is very old because of vampire immortality.

Yeah exactly, she would qualify (assuming she is a cute bruiser of course) because she looks young. Bleach characters are also great examples, since some of them look like kids or teens but are actually hundreds of years old.

Of course you also have to take art style into account. In some anime and manga characters look younger but it's just how they're drawn and all characters look like that in that universe.

I'll have to vote for Morigana as well. After some examining around which cute brusiers that I remember, I think she still fits the bill best.
