Young age and small stature doesn’t stop these people from being heroes. Here are a few of our favorites.
1. Arya Stark
Arya is not much for dancing and singing, and would rather be practicing sword-fighting with Needle than wandering about the castle. Her experiences throughout the Game of Thrones story is one of the longest and most arduous of any character. Arya has taught us to always be resourceful, trust yourself, and that we don’t have to accept the fate that’s given to us.
2. Lisa Simpson
In spite of her fairly oblivious, and consequentially hilarious family, Lisa brought reason and sensibility to the world of the Simpsons. From teaching her family to eat healthier, be more empathetic, and often saving Springfield from falling victim to countless plots and schemes, there’s no shortage of proof that Lisa is a mini-hero.
3. Harriet the Spy
Harriet had to learn the hard way that there is a right and wrong way to investigate the world around us. Regardless, her curiosity and cleverness are always signs of a possible mini-hero.
4. Sandlot Kids
A tale of unlikely friendships and teamwork to save a baseball, the Sandlot Kids remind us that despite our differences we can always share our talents and play as a team.
5. Frodo Baggins
It’s hard to understate the acts of heroism and determination Frodo had to take to bring light to the Third Age of Middle Earth. Mini both in stature and years, our favorite hobbit showed the world that anyone, no matter how small, has the power to save the world.
Possibly the quietest of these mini-heroes, Arnold is usually portrayed as calm and level-headed. On a class field trip to the aquarium, they see Lockjaw, the infamous snapping turtle, covered in graffiti and garbage. Despite the rumors regarding how aggressive and scary Lockjaw is, Arnold, with the help of his grandma, come up with a plot to rescue him from his messy enclosure.
7. Ash Ketchum & Crew
From the day Ash set out on his journey from Pallet Town, he was the Pokémon underdog. However, he, along with his team of Misty, Brock, and Pikachu, rose the ranks while treating their Pokémon like friends, something new to the Pokémon trainer scene. Along the way, he gained the respect and admiration of almost every trainer he met, not to mention ending the plots of Team Rocket pretty much every day.
