Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })It seems that many who possess great magical, mental, or otherwise mystical might are also in the worst of shape. They may be sickly, horribly ill, crippled, or just physically weak and puny; in general, people who have reality-bending powers seem to suffer for it in other areas.
There are usually reasons. Powerful psychics may suffer from this, as they can do anything with their minds — for what do they need their bodies? It may also be the result of a magical Old Master experiencing the declining health that comes with age. Alternatively, physical health can sometimes be traded for magical power, be it through a bargain of some sort or the use of very draining magic... or it may be more mundane: rather than go outside or exercise, the magicians spent all their time studying spells, and are thus very weak physicallynote As well as usually very far from being good at weapon usage. From a Doylist POV, it's about game balance. Without their physical weakness there often wouldn't be any reason not to use them.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })In terms of characterization, this trope creates a duality and contrast with the strong, stupid guy. Since Squishy Wizards tend to focus on powerful offensive attack spells ("Nuking"), they are also contrasted by The Medic, a form of Squishy Wizard who focuses on healing and defensive magic to stand in for their frail defense instead. Squishy Wizards, because of their fragility, are often paired up with fighters in a Sword and Sorcerer ensemble or part of a full-blown adventuring party.
In addition in combination with the concept of Draw Aggro, this was one of the biggest contributors to the standard Damager, Healer, Tank party formation as seen in many MMORPGs — because characters that can nuke the hell out of the opposition and heal allies are usually the squishiest members of the party. The Stone Wall, who can withstand aggro and keep it off the others, was created to keep these squishy party members alive during those big battles.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Even when Linear Warriors, Quadratic Wizards applies, the wizards are usually just quadratic in offense, not defense.
This trope is distinct from Disability Superpower, in that the power in question is not necessarily making up for the disability; rather, this trope refers to the lack of physical prowess that tends to accompany mystical powers.
In game mechanic terms, the Squishy Wizard is usually a Glass Cannon, being able to dole out big hurt but generally dying if a tough monster looks at it funny. Although Squishy Wizard is sometimes not completely Glass Cannon. They can have decent, or even good magical defense, to tank out other wizard (or a monster)'s spell, but a single punch and they're down already.
It should be noted that not every wizard is squishy. In fact, one way to reduce squishiness is to simply give them some armor, and there's all kinds of armors. In fact, if say, a mage's magic doesn't work while wearing something like plate armor made from steel, there's the armor known as the Gambeson, which is made from layers of linen, is fairly light, and is good against most types of mundane weapons, acting like Kevlar of the Medieval world and prior. Of course, if even this proves to be too much, then a good wooden shield could do the job. Then there's just plainly enchanting the robes they already wear. Also, since a lot of magic users, depending on the setting, carry staffs that help them to focus their powers, there is almost no reason that they can't use their staff, which are just big sticks, to whack some sense into the heads of would-be attackers, or just plainly knock them senseless. See Combat Medic, Magic Knight, and Kung-Fu Wizard.
Contrast Magically Inept Fighter, who are strong physically but weak with magic, and Magic Knight, Kung-Fu Wizard, and sometimes Mage Marksman when mages are capable of holding their own without magic. Compare Armor and Magic Don't Mix, Blind Seer, Waif Prophet, Black Mage, White Mage, and Shoot the Mage First, and Weak, but Skilled. Corollary to Magic Is Mental.

Sengoku Basara:
Otani Yoshitsugu is a psychic with leprosy. He's confined to a palanquin he levitates with his telekinetic powers, and attacks enemies using telekinetically manipulated praying beads. His HP, attack and defence stats are decisively below average, in addition to his slow movement rate and horrible turning radius.
Oichi in her third game incarnation is similar. Using magically conjured shadow hands to attack and throw mooks about from a great distance, Oichi's body is in itself little more than a puppet dragged along by those very same hands and is defenceless without them. Like Yoshitsugi she depends mostly on keeping enemies at a safe distance where she can keep stun-locking them.

The spellcasters in Betrayal at Krondor are an interesting example. Seeing as casting spells depletes stamina and then health, in that order, they're technically Glass Cannons mechanic-wise while not being actual Squishy Wizards; They are less tough than the warriors and casting spells by itself makes them more vulnerable to going down if an enemy lands a hit on them, but in-game logic dictates that they're actually pretty physically tough to be able to cast powerful spells for a prolonged period of time. That being said, Owyn begins the game with strictly inferior weaponry, strength, health, and defense, eventually climbing his way to badass only by participating in the majority of the game's battles, stat-boosting sidequests, and training sessions. Another playable spellcaster, an old man named Patrus, has such horrid physical stats that he'll probably spend most fights on the ground, bleeding to death.

Goblin Slayer:
Wizard is a talented young witch who can fire powerful fireballs with her staff. However, it is completely defenseless in close combat. This is fatal to her when she is attacked by numerous goblins in a cave. After her wand is broken, she is completely helpless.
Priestess also qualifies for this. While her goddess grants her some miracles that she can use for combat, she has no chance in a real close combat. That makes her a case of Squishy Priestess.

A somewhat more literal example. The episode "Wizard Battle" features a wizard named Abrakadaniel, whose body is squishy:
The Ice King. Without his crown, he has no magical powers, and without his beard, he cannot fly. And he's a scrawny old man.

Shadow Hearts:
Alice, quintessential White Magician Girl and Li Zhuzhen, old Taoist adept from the first game and surprisingly not Halley. Despite being a Street Urchin with ESP powers, he's a balanced character like Margarete whose mayor weakness is that his skills take a huge chunk of his rather limited SP pool.
Gepetto, old puppeteer that attacks via Cornelia and specializes in offensive magic, Anastasia Romanov (No, seriously) who is able to gain the attacks of the enemies that she takes photos of and Lucia, alluring exotic dancer fortuneteller who can buff the party with her Aromatherapy skills from Covenant.
Main Character Johnny, surprisingly enough. Making him a support unit is the best way to go. There's also Hilda in her slim form and Mao, Al Capone's bodyguard and giant cat/Drunken Master/aspiring starlet par excellence in From the New World.

The Protoss High Templar from StarCraft are powerful psychics that can unleash psionic storms to devastate entire armies. However, a single Zergling can kill one of these guys if it makes it into melee range. This more or less applies to all the other casters in the game as well. Only in game though. In the lore a High Templar is a veteran zealot who has no issue slaughtering a dozen zerglings in hand to hand without even bothering to strap his armor on. Tassadar could extend his wrist blades far enough to cut mutalisks out of the sky. You can probably see why they left that part out of the game.

Justified in the Heralds of Valdemar books: maintaining your skills as a magic-user is a full-time job. Maintaining your skills as a fighter is a full-time job. Yes, there are people who do both, but they do so by giving up any pretense to having a life outside their skills, and usually giving up on getting a good night's sleep as well. This is discussed off and on in later books, especially By the Sword — Mercenary Captain Kerowyn has to explain to magic-wary Valdemarans that magic is not all powerful and that mages go splat just as easily as anyone else; perhaps more. On the other hand, while few mages learn professional-level fighting skills, quite a few of them still maintain high degrees of physical fitness. Then again, the fact that in the Valdemar books manipulating high amounts of mana is work equivalent to heavy manual labor helps explain why there are so few fat, out-of-shape wizards. Of the various magic-using protagonists in the series, Kethry of the ''Vows and Honor' trilogy is the best example of a Squishy Wizard — and even she gets around it most of the time thanks to an Empathic Weapon that can take control of her body to confer upon her the skills of a master swordsman.

Since V from Devil May Cry 5 has pathetic physical strength and crappy health compared to Dante and Nero, he uses Familiars to fight enemies for him and then, once thir health is low enough, finishes them off with his cane or summons ethereal copies of his cane and rain down on demons. This all makes V very Difficult, but Awesome to play. It's also lampshaded In-Universe as V struggles to get around Red Grave City without falling over, can barely keep up with Dante without tiring himself out and, unlike other characters, he realistically struggles to lift Sparda. It's also revealed that V is dying since he's a Soul Jar and can only save himself by fusing with Urizen, whereupon he becomes Vergil.

The Mighty Thor:
Loki is a downplayed example; most depictions have him as a weak fighter... in comparison to Thor. He does have super-strength and endurance, which added to his magic make him a very powerful opponent.
The Enchantress is in the same boat. She's got a lot of magical power at her command but has no combat skills and has been beaten by other Asgardians easily. Compared to human beings she can take hits and barely feel them. This led to a rather amusing incident in Secret Wars, when, having previously easily defeated Rogue, she thought that another mortal woman was no match for her. Unfortunately for her, that mortal woman was She-Hulk. A No-Holds-Barred Beatdown ensued◊.

Just like in the regular game, Dungeons & Dragons Online makes wizards and sorcerers the squishiest of all the playable classes, with elven and drow mages being especially squishy due to lower Constitution. Playing them is mainly reserved for those who are good at the game, as just like the regular game, low levels can be unforgiving as hell for mages. Also those who know exactly what spells they'll need for their next quest; wizards in particular are designed for And Knowing Is Half the Battle... um, Crazy-Prepared.

Mages and Skulls in Disgaea are by far the frailest units in the game. The exception to the rule (Flonne, when properly trained) easily demonstrates why; magic units that could take a hit would be total Disc One Nukes.

Ranma ½: Saffron is possibly the most powerful character in the entire series capable of creating massive firestorms and incinerating pretty much anything. However, he is relatively frail compared to the martial artists of the series. Relatively frail means being mildly hurt by a boulder to the face so he's still far tougher than a normal human, it's just that the main cast could take a hit like that without batting an eye.

X-Men has many:
Professor Xavier is of the most powerful telepaths on the planet, can go anywhere and into anyone's mind... but not up the stairs◊.
Jean Grey embodied this trope in her early days, as she had more power than her males peers combined, but the likes of Toad could take her down if he got close enough. Even in her later portrayals Jean despite being actually quite athletic still works better at a distance with her psi blasts, but averted with Dark Phoenix though as Phoenix Jean has enough Super Strength to lift approximately 100 tons while possessed.
Magneto is one of the most powerful mutants alive; with his Magnetism Manipulation Mags can hold a Celestial together and alter the Earth's magnetic field just to save Kitty Pryde. Physically though he's just a reasonably buff (Depending on the Artist) old man and a well placed stab wound/optic blast/kinetic card/organic steel fist or simple strong attack can incapacitate him, though Magneto still has impressive endurance. Also unlike some mutants his power is susceptible to fatigue so he's kind of a Glass Cannon too.
Scarlet Witch often received this treatment in The Avengers, being taken out of battles almost immediately so that her hex powers wouldn't end things too quickly. Wanda is a woman who changed reality with mere words, but a solid blow will put her down.
Storm seems to play this straight as her Weather Manipulation works better at a distance while her male teammates get up close and strong attacks can knock Storm out of the air where she has the advantage. At other times Storm gloriously averts this, like when she got in a knife fight with Callisto and wasn't allowed to use her powers but to the surprise of everybody when she soundly won. Being raised on the streets really took the squishiness out of Storm.
Rachel Summers, daughter of Jean above, is an omega-level mutant with telekinesis and telepathy that are practically reality-warping and she's curb-stomped Galactus before, but in a pure melee she gets dropped fairly often including an absolutely vicious No-Holds-Barred Beatdown from her uncle Vulcan after he ambushed her.

Played to the hilt during the "Torg Potter" stories in Sluggy Freelance. Torg, despite having no magical powers, is often shown physically manhandling wizards (though it helps that he's a grown man at a school for wizards in their early teens). He advances pretty far in the wizards' "Try-Gizzard Tournament" in part because of the "Running with Scissors" challenge, since wizards are "notoriously weak in the knees." And even the mightiest of dark wizards isn't much of a match for "Torg wielding a 26" chrome plated .724" back-bored barrel with a buckshot core.

In Suikoden, Ted is the holder of the Soul Eater rune (which does exactly what it sounds like it would) and dies fairly early on in the game because of this.

The 5th edition Tyranny of Dragons adventure has Blagothkus, a cloud giant wizard. Compared to a typical cloud giant he has less health, lower Strength and Constitution, weaker saving throws, and less accurate melee attacks, in exchange for an arsenal of spells that can inflict high damage. Mind you, he’s still a giant with superhuman levels of strength and durability, so his squishiness is relative.

Rundelhaus Cord in Log Horizon. In his early adventures into a dungeon with a group, he attracts too many enemies, and fails to let the tank gain aggro to focus the monsters on him instead of the former, forcing them to run away repeatedly. It's only after Minori put her foot down and they all discussed their abilities with each other that they finally start working as a team and manage to finish the dungeon.

Magneto is one of the most powerful mutants alive; with his Magnetism Manipulation Mags can hold a Celestial together and alter the Earth's magnetic field just to save Kitty Pryde. Physically though he's just a reasonably buff (Depending on the Artist) old man and a well placed stab wound/optic blast/kinetic card/organic steel fist or simple strong attack can incapacitate him, though Magneto still has impressive endurance. Also unlike some mutants his power is susceptible to fatigue so he's kind of a Glass Cannon too.

The "jammers" in Shadow Unit have reality-warping psychic abilities, but tend to be physically vulnerable for an extremely good reason: killing people with your brain burns calories. A lot of them. And if you think that sounds like a selling point, ask yourself when was the last time you went into ketosis after missing lunch.

Wanda Maximoff a.k.a. Scarlet Witch is one of the most powerful characters in the MCU. In Age of Ultron she disintegrates three Ultron Bots in a single blast of magic and can bend vibranium (otherwise impervious to damage) with her telekinesis, in Infinity War she can use her magic to destroy an Infinity Stone and in Avengers: Endgame she soundly overpowers Thanos when enraged. Physically, however, she's pathetic... Hawkeye is able to take her out effortlessly and even Non-Action Guy Bruce Banner manages to overpower Wanda with a headlock (though she breaks out of it in seconds with her magic). Banner even lampshades it by saying he could choke her to death without going green. True, Wanda does recover from getting blown into a window in Infinity War, so she's slightly tougher than the average human woman at least.

Subverted with Cyvus Vail on Angel, an elderly demon sorcerer who appeared barely able to walk at first, but when attacked turned out to be faster and stronger than someone in his prime. Although as a demon, it's possible that this is just in comparison with humans and by his own species' standards he was very weak.

In Polgara the Sorceress, Polgara notes that despite his elderly looks Belgarath will as readily resort to bar brawling tactics as to magic. Not to mention Beldin who casually tosses people twice his size around. Or Garion, who tends to prefer his BFS to magic. Or Empowered Badass Normal Durnik, who was a blacksmith before dying and coming back as a sorcerer. David Eddings likes averting this trope. In The Mallorean it is revealed that Belgarath is only cosmetically elderly, since (as had previously only been implied) sorcerers could both consciously and subconsciously alter their human form to fit their desires as well as shapeshifting to animals.

Tales of Eternia's Keele Zeibel embodies this trope — right down to his long, flowing robes, anemic appearance, and his quintessential mage's staff. Since childhood, he has been awkward, clumsy and sickly (and thus a target of taunts and teasing courtesy of Reid), but makes up for it by being a dedicated and highly intelligent (and argumentative, and anti-social, and obstinate...) university student who learns some immensely powerful spells as the game progresses.
Tales of Symphonia's Genis Sage, too. Just witness his scene in the string of false Heroic Sacrifices.

Dominic Deegan, as his prosthetic leg, false teeth, and note from his doctor expressing disbelief that he's not dead can attest. Though he is rather strong on the psychoplanes. And his younger brother Gregory was rather frail at first, though that was due to infection by the blight of the undead, once that was removed his White Magic went into overdrive. And every mage mind controlled by King David Johann practically falls apart when attacked thanks to his magic rotting them from the inside. Though there's also several exceptions, such as Milov Danovich the Spellwolf, The Infernomancer who is practically unkillable thanks to his pact with the demon of wounds, and Dominic's other brother Jacob the self-proclaimed "zombie alive".

Guild Wars:
Played straight at first glance, where the magic-oriented classes do have the weakest armor, but they all have ways to bolster their defenses, especially those who pick up Ranger, Monk, or another class that gives them access to defensive abilities.
Earth Elementalists are the extreme however. They have an armor spell that alone adds more armor than a Warrior has, Ward Against Melee, which causes 50% of enemy melee attacks in an area whiff, Ward Against Elements, which provides a healthy bonus against elemental attacks, and Eruption, which blinds (90% miss chance) enemies in an area for up to 15 seconds. With the addition of other spells, an Earth Elementalist can prevent huge amounts of damage to himself and his party.
Played straight with mesmers though. Low armor, almost no direct damage dealing capabilities, and an extreme lack of self heals means that this is a VERY squishy wizard.

Played with in Darkstone. Although the wizard class starts with the lowest strength and the weakest weapons, through the use of attribute enhancing rings and elixirs, it is possible to have wizards who have similar strength to a warrior as well as the capability of wielding weapons from other classes. As well as having typical druid powers, like transforming into a werewolf. Still pales in comparison to the damage they can put out with magic and throwing weapons, however. (Especially due to the cancellation glitch, moving while in the middle of a throw stops the animation, allowing for a rapid-fire attack)

Although not exactly "squishy", Sylar from Heroes is shown as vulnerable whenever he is unable to use his powers — he gets beaten up by Peter and has to run away really fast from Noah Bennet. When he can use them, on the other hand, he is possibly the most powerful character on the show.

Lyrical Nanoha:
Hayate Yagami is a Squishy Wizard in a team comprised mostly of Magic Knights. Ranking SS on the mage power scale, her main repertoire is a vast array of powerful spells that cover a wide-area, nuking everything in its path. At melee range, she's helpless and needs somebody else, usually her Wolkenritter, to keep the more troublesome enemies away from her. It was explained in the sound stages that she never learned any magic the way Nanoha and Fate did. Instead, the power and spell knowledge came from her Linker Core merging with the original Reinforce's, so it is entirely possible that she simply doesn't have any spells weaker than a tactical nuclear device. Seeing how she rarely gets a chance to practice her even those (each is accompanied by mandatory authorization by TSAB and advance evacuation orders, no kidding), she also needs Reinforce Zwei to aim them for her. This is odd considering that Rein Eins not only had the Nigh-Invulnerability to No-Sell everything thrown at her, but spells like Bloody Dagger show that she can fight effectively at the anti-personnel level.
One is free to doubt the canonicity of supplementary games, but The Battle of Aces shows that Hayate can handle herself quite well in melee. Either she is holding back that much in StrikerS or the game developers saw a need to prevent her from becoming a Joke Character like in Magical Battle Arena. This is explained by The Battle of Aces being an Alternate Universe to the main Nanoha Universe in which Ein is still alive and is around to teach Hayate how to use magic properly. BOA!Hayate already knows flight control in a few days after the main conflict of A's while Main!Hayate takes months being taught by Nanoha and Fate in the Sound Stage. BOA!Hayate could likely defeat Unison!Main!Hayate in a fight.
Explicitly pointed out in the case of Summoners, like Caro or Corona. The latter of which, in a 1-on-1 tournament, decided to rectify this issue by using her golem-manipulation magic on her own body, allowing her to copy the physical fighting techniques of close-combat mages despite not actually knowing said techniques. This almost works (her opponent is taken by surprise and she gets a few good hits in), but the copied techniques are all very predictable, and her opponent learns to dodge them and still knocks her out.

Shin Megami Tensei:
In Shin Megami Tensei I, the Law Hero is more squishy than the others, and leans heavily on his spells or his gun. The Heroine wavers between Squishy Wizard and White Magician Girl.
Persona:
In Persona 1 and Persona 2: Innocent Sin and Eternal Punishment, persona selection and stat growth determine a character's role. Maki is very squishy in the first game. In Innocent Sin, Jun is overall squishier than the other characters. You can also choose to build your protagonist (unnamed in the first, Tatsuya in P2:IS, and Maya in P2:EP) as squishy or not as you like.
In Persona 3 and Persona 4, the protagonist's squishiness depends entirely upon the persona he has equipped, but usually is more of a Magic Knight. Yukari is more of a Squishy Wizard in P3, while Yukiko is similarly so in P4.
Ann is the resident Squishy Wizard in Persona 5. Great at raining fiery death upon enemies but bad at taking hits and attacking physically due to mediocre HP and worse strength. Hilariously, this seems to be a case of Gameplay and Story Integration as Ann is a model that hit the genetic jackpot and can remain fit despite not exercising and subsisting on junk food and sodas. Ann's unhealthy lifestyle is most likely responsible of her squishiness.
In the Devil Survivor games, focusing most of your points into one stat is better than rounding out, so the protagonist is either a vicious brawler or this. Yuzu also tends towards this, as does Amane.

D.Gray-Man: Though not strictly a magician but rather a reality warper, Road Kanelot has displayed very few physical feats especially compared to her superhuman Noah brothers. Her most impressive one being probably saltoing from flying umbrella and landing back on it which is a pretty common feat compared to most fighters of the series. However this is hardly an issue since her physical body is not really hers and damaging it is completely useless meaning that in spite of having the most terrifying abilities she is also pretty much invulnerable.... Suoer-power lottery much?

Naruto:
The puppeteers rely exclusively on their puppets to protect them and have no close combat skills whatsoever (with the exception of Chiyo, who was able to put up a fight against Naruto and his clone when she mistook them as enemies).
Nagato/the real Pain also qualifies relying on his six extra bodies which he can control from a distance, but only has one way to defend himself at close range (impaling someone with one of his chakra receivers and taking over their body) and can't move around easily — although it's not because of frailty from focusing on non-physical abilities, but a crippling battle wound.
Gaara, as he is very adept at jutsu (and makes heavy use of Shukaku's power), but almost never uses Taijutsu. (His stats confirm this trope.) However, the trope is subverted in that he does carry a large jar filled with sand on his back.
Kaguya Otsutsuki. While she has near god-like power, she has little to no physical abilities and relies on her raw abilities.

Hohenheim in Fullmetal Alchemist has truly amazing (literally godlike) alchemical powers, but in terms of athletics, is exactly the geeky Non-Action Guy he looks like. This is kind of surprising when revealed, given that nearly every other character is a good fighter or at least fairly athletic, and alchemists tend to be more of the Kung-Fu Wizard persuasion. In Hohenheim's case, though, he makes up for lack in athleticism by being able to regenerate, likely from From a Single Cell as the homonculi can.

8-Bit Theater:
Black Mage has been described as "weak" and "noodly" by his party members. Also smelly, but that's irrelevant.
Such claims aside, however, the facts would seem to contradict this, as he has frequently survived consecutive collisions, impalements, incinerations, and the like, any one of which would, if the damage were distributed evenly over an average RPG party, probably result in a Total Party Kill. (Indeed, BM is often subject to The Worf Effect, and thus must be quite durable to avoid having been Killed Off for Real.) His skill with daggers has proven sufficient to slaughter hordes of massive sea monsters without the aid of his ungrateful party members, and the one time a spinal injury did result in his death, he was no longer bound by the restraints of a physical body and simply took control of Hell and came back. Alternatively, his ability to survive these injuries may be due to Sarda's hateful patronage. Sarda makes sure he survives, but in a very brutal manner. Sarda wants Black Mage to HURT, and hurt A LOT. He literally teleported him to "Hurt, Australia" and dropped said continent on him. Black Mage survived, of course, but was blamed for destroying a city with the tidal wave.

The Combine Advisors in Half-Life 2. They are large grub-like creatures that need mechanical arms and wear some sort of breathing apparatus, but they possess powerful psychic abilities. At their weakest they're still capable of telepathic attacks that leave Gordon (and the player) disorientated, scaling up to lifting multiple humans off the ground at once and immobilising them completely, with the current known peak of their personal power shredding buildings and smashing through defences without noticeable effort.

The Nu Mou race in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance and Final Fantasy Tactics A2. They are small in stature and have very slender limbs, making them a magnet to enemies who have high attack power, like the Bangaa. Obviously, the Nu Mou have the best magic stat out of all the races and use many kinds of offensive and elemental spells.
A2 somewhat lampshades the physical weakness of the nu mou by having one of the nu mou clan leaders in a cup tourney asking you to be gentle on them since they are old and their bones aren't what they used to be.
Conversely, Geomancers, the only magic-focused Gria, have below-average magic attack (and physical attack) but very high physical and magical defense. This very much makes them Masters of None, because the still below-average HP and limited armor selection makes their defense only slightly above average.

Weiss Schnee of RWBY is the Magic Knight of the eponymous team of heroines. Yang has her beat for pure hitting power but Weiss can use red Dust to increase hers. She's not as fast as Ruby or Blake, but she can boost both their and her own speed with yellow glyphs. She can strike at long range with shards of ice, and conjure up glyphs to act as barriers and platforms. And in Volume 3 it's shown that her semblance is the ability to summon the giant knight from her trailer, just in case she needs to take out something big like a Grimm or a house-sized battle robot. However, Weiss also has by far the lowest durability of the three: in her fight in "No Brakes" she was knocked out in a single hit by what was effectively a Boss in Mook Clothing, and in other battles where she won, she was visibly out of breath afterwards, hinting at a very low stamina.

In the Dawn of War series, you have actual Squishy Wizards, Psykers, who teleport in, blast everything to death (or not to death) with their psychic abilities, then (hope to) run away to regenerate their energy and let their abilities cool down. And on the other hand, you have Religious Magic (or Daemonic Intervention, or Chaotic Sigils, or <insert more lore-o-babble here>), used by the actual soldiers able to withstand a few hits.

In Phantasy Star IV, this is the case with most of the primary magic-users; Raja and Kyra, both potent magicians, benefit very little from being armed with physical weapons (Raja because he has low attack power and low natural defense, and Kyra because her magic is plentiful and much stronger than her regular weapon attack anyway). Designated party wizard Rune can cast so many spells between visits to the Trauma Inn that he can reasonably be given two shields as opposed to a weak staff. Since most other characters have their hands tied with weapons, this easily puts Rune's defense on par with everyone else. Early on when he first joins the party, giving him two shields, putting him at the front, and letting him clear the screen of monsters in one or two rounds is the best way to level grind. It's entirely possible to spend most of the game with your squishy wizards near the front of the party while your melee fighters take a safer spot at the back.

Harry Potter:
Voldemort is described as being very tall, thin, and bony, with chalk-white skin and spidery hands.
Harry could use a little meat on his bones too in the book, having been described as rather thin, though this is due to being rather underfed being raised by his abusive aunt and uncle. By Goblet of Fire, he's revealed to be quite athletic-looking once he takes off his clothes, though Adaptational Attractiveness could also be at play. By Order of the Phoenix, he starts shooting up and getting more lean than skinny. Justified in that after living at Hogwarts he's properly fed healthy full meals and gets involved with sports (Quidditch), which (particularly when combined with puberty) would lead to a more muscular figure.
In Order of the Phoenix, Neville is mocked by a whole group of Death Eaters for his pathetic skills with magic. A second later and he proceeds to tackle one of them to the ground and display the "other" use of a wand by stabbing it into the Death Eater's eye. The others seem somewhat shocked by such unorthodox tactics, giving Harry a chance to act.
Also, despite otherwise being heavily based on real British boarding schools (though severely understating the inter-student violence), Hogwarts is notably lacking any sort of PE program, where real British boarding schools tend to be enthusiastic participants in relentlessly physical sports like Tennis, Athletics, Football (soccer) and, of course, Rugby Union — indeed, in the latter case, private school alumni usually make up at least half the England rugby team, even though they consist of only 7% of England's students — with multiple teams per year group and per sport, and compete fiercely with each other on a weekly basis in term time. Hogwarts, by contrasts, has one sports team per house, (a sport in which most of the movement is done by magical broomstick), which plays one match against the other three houses a year, and nothing else. Though admittedly, depending on the teacher their classes (especially Care of Magical Creatures) may be a bit more physically demanding than the average Muggle classroom. And having to run up and down the stairs in a huge castle to get anywhere — often taking the long way round to avoid moving stairs and Peeves — does help.

The Wizard class in Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords suffer from this. Battle (Attack power) and Morale (Hit Points and spell resistance) stats are the lowest of the four class AND the most expensive to upgrade (3 points each per Level Up. You only get four points to spend). But he does gain the powerful Fireball spell fairly quickly, and in the upper levels (around 35 or so) becomes an efficient death-dealing machine. (The Druid is similarly HP-challenged, but has some of best defensive spells in the game and learns them fairly quickly.)

In The Dark Lords of Nerima, it's occasionally pointed out that the Sailor Senshi have dangerous and destructive spells at their disposal and are somewhat faster and stronger than the average human. However, compared to Ranma and the Wreaking Crew, they aren't as skilled in hand to hand combat and even the go to fighters of the Senshi Jupiter and Uranus are clearly outmatched in a straight up one on one fight. This is best displayed when Sailor Saturn, the resident Person of Mass Destruction, is nearly killed by a mercenary doped up on dangerous experimental Super Serum which gave him the strength and speed a faction of that of a Nerima fighter. A more serious example is when Sailor Moon confronts the Big Bad in the final battle and vaporizes him from shooter range. Unfortunately, he doesn't stay dead and he quickly closes on her and disables her with ease using a few pressure point attacks that leave her near death.

In Brynhildr in the Darkness the witches we've seen so far don't seem any tougher than normal humans. Made most obvious when Chisato goes Taking the Bullet for Valkyria, suggesting that even she who is the World's Strongest Man still doesn't have the Super Toughness to be Immune to Bullets.

An extreme case with King from The Seven Deadly Sins. His magical abilities are probably the strongest in the group, however, he is pathetically weak. According to Meliodas, he once lost a fight with a cat that stole his snack. His Power Level even lists his "Strength" stat as 0.

He has with the power to summon monsters that can level cities with ease and take on threats that are powerful enough to literally curbstomp the Totally Awesome Hulk. But he himself is still just an eleven-year old kid, meaning that it's very easy to get to him once his monsters are out of the picture.

The Dresden Files:
Wizards are no more squishy than normal humans. In fact, their magical abilities grant them the ability to recover from nearly any injury given enough time (although "enough time" may be years), meaning they have much less to worry about in terms of chronic pains or lasting injuries over their centuries long lifespans. The vast majority of Wardens (Wizard soldiers/police) seem to be in pretty good shape. However, wizards are still human and when compared to vampires, demons, ogres, trolls, things that hunt trolls and other super-strong monstrosities, they are subject to this trope.
Harry himself has dismissed direct physical enhancement as an impractical use of magic given the number of required secondary alterations. Although with the help of powerful outside forces Denarian transformations and the Winter Knight Mantel demonstrate it is possible. It's possible having worked out those problems means giving up some claim to be human, and the White Council seems very reluctant to think of a nonhuman as a "wizard", making the term self-enforcing. At one point, Harry goes on a rant lampshading this trope during an alley duel. His enemy turns out to be an exception. Oops.
Personally, Harry does his best to defy this trope. He runs regularly, trains aikido (it's his best friend's preferred style, and has techniques for staff fighting, which are useful when you habitually carry one already) and generally carries a handgun too. It also helps when he (somewhat regularly) get's into fights with other humans for one reason or another and doesn't want to use magic to kill or hurt them. On one occasion, he uses a blast of fiery destruction to distract a monster, then runs up and just punches it in the face.
There's at least one wizard who has the ability to act as a close-quarters bruiser: Listens-To-Winds, whose specialty is in effortlessly deflecting enemy magic and then beat the shit out of enemies as a bear the size of a minibus. He seems to prefer acting as a Medic to fighting, however.

Most of the humans who use magic, Hunters and Witches, in Supernatural are also physically strong. However, prophets seem to be frailer than the other magic users and in the past were guarded by an archangel. Both Chuck and Kevin suffered from headaches and seemed to be physically drained by the effort of interpreting God's word.

Lero-Ro and Khun Aguero Agnes subvert this.

Wizards in the Discworld novels tend to be unhealthy in a different way: most of them are Big Eaters (a "light snack" at Unseen University can run to several courses) and unlike many examples of that trope they do become hugely overweight. Exceptions include the Mustrum Ridcully, the current Archchancellor (an enthusiastic hunter, angler and martial artist, and a firm believer in healthy exercise, resulting in a Boisterous Bruiser who once went two rounds bare knuckle boxing with Detritus, a troll considered badass by troll standards), Rincewind and the Bursar (both of whom fit the "frail and emaciated" version of the trope, although Rincewind is capable of a fair turn of speed, perhaps making up for his total lack of magical ability), and the Librarian (who will squish you if you get on his bad side). Ponder Stibbons, meanwhile, went from plump to skinny, and has a classic Geek Physique, meaning that he's a different kind of squishy.
Vividly demonstrated in The Light Fantastic: Trymon, the novel's Big Bad is possessed by the Things from the Dungeon Dimension, has read the most powerful book of magic around and is a pretty potent wizard in his own right. He is beaten up in hand-to-hand combat by Rincewind!
The trope is mostly averted overall though, indeed, before Ridcully, the major method of advancement in the University was killing a wizard of a higher grade with non-magical means, leading to a tendency amongst wizards to be quite tough — while they were still quite large, for the most part, they tended to be sharp as a tack. Squishiness is preferred, since everyone remembers on some level what happened the last time(s) wizards decided that they preferred power to the buffet table. Grass didn't grow in certain places, and if it did, it grew in some very disturbing shapes and forms.
However, it is also noted in Unseen Academicals, that despite the fact that the Wizards (Ridcully excepted) seem to be large, fluffy and harmless creatures quite divorced from reality, they can quite easily force their way through a large crowd of borderline football hooligans at a street football match.
Averted with the witches, who rarely use magic — they live just the same life as everyone else, which in the places where witches tend to live is a very hard life with lots of physical work.

In The Elenium trilogy, Otha, the Emperor of Zemoch, is an immortal graced with unimaginable magic powers by his god. He's also lazy and stupid, and over the millennia of his existence has morphed into something that is described as being roughly analogous to Jabba the Hutt in appearance. He can't even walk; he has to be carried around on a litter by slaves.

World of Warcraft:
True for most spellcasting classes. While their hitpoints can easily compete with the other classes, mages, priests and warlocks can only wear cloth armor which offers low protection against physical hits, and fare poorly in most defensive type of stat such as defense or dodge. In theory, random items could provide any sort of stat, but those never keep up with the more "conformist" items. There are more hardy hybrid types, but they tend to be worse at spellcasting in return.
Although eliminated from the Player Versus Player metagame, a common PvP Priest build used to involve acquiring as many Armor-increasing as possible, along with the armor-enhancing self-buff Inner Fire, which with good equipment could lead to an AC similar to mail and a shield, rendering them nigh unkillable healers.
Paladins (a tank/healer hybrid) were known to outperform Priests in healing power, but only if they exclusively used cloth items, earning them the nickname Clothadin.
Warlocks, on the other hand, tended to prize sheer amounts of stamina (which increases their health) rather than stats that generally improve the amount of mana and mana regeneration. They can essentially trade health for mana instantly, and then drain the life of their victim to recoup the health loss. With proper talents they can also have damage reduction comparable to wearing mail with Soul Link and Demon Armour.
Magi, after being nerfed badly, complained on the WoW Fora: "We're not glass cannons anymore, we're glass peashooters!"
Another great example would be the Warlock's Imp minion. It only has long-ranged attacks, which do huge amounts of damage (compared to the other demons at least), however has very low defense and relatively low health. A non-caster could easily kill one in three or four whacks with their weapon.
While all three cloth-wearing classes are somewhat fragile, mages are probably the straightest example, as a warlock can rely on their bulky, tanking Voidwalker Minion in solo play, while even shadow priests have some self-healing capability. Mages, on the other hand, don't get a tank minion and are completely unable to heal themselves while in combat.

Aubrey and Saki in Uncommon Time. They have good magic stats (though slightly worse than Meirin), but it's a rare occurrence when their physical attacks do any damage at all. In Aubrey's case, this can be changed after the first Bonus Dungeon, as equipping Altair's scythe Luthier gives them much better physical attack at the cost of giving up the magic bonus of their regular weapons.

In Golden Sun, where every character uses offensive "magic", Ivan stands out. He's got the lowest defense and attack of the party, worse than even Mia, the healer. However, he's a Fragile Speedster in addition to being a Glass Cannon, his weapons' special effects activate much more frequently than anyone else's, and with the right sword, he can deal tremendous physical damage.
This seems to be a theme of Wind Seer class accessed by Jupiter Adepts as Sheba from The Lost Age and Ivan's daughter Karis in Golden Sun: Dark Dawn all share the same high agility and psynergy points but bottom of the barrel HP, attack and defense.
Himi from Golden Sun: Dark Dawn is noteworthy for being a Venus Adept whose stats (low HP, attack and defense but high PP and agility) are almost the polar opposite of other Venus adepts like Isaac, Felix and Matthew who range from Magic Knights to Masters of All if properly customized.

Frigga, like her son Loki, values magic over physical strength, though she manages to subvert this slightly as in Thor: The Dark World she easily beats Malekith with a sword. However, Kurse quickly overpowers Frigga with one arm and then stabs her, killing her instantly. In comparison Frigga's first son Thor, survived getting stabbed multiple times among worse injuries, so Frigga despite technically being a goddess is still a Squishy Wizard as well.

Subverted in Warlock. For the most part the Warlock indeed relies on his eldritch powers and avoids physical confrontation. In the climax Redferne challenges him to take the final pages of the Grand Grimoire from him by force alone, without magic. The Warlock agrees and it looks like a typical Batman Gambit when the hero plays on the villain's hubris to even the scale, but the Warlock holds his own pretty well in a fight and it's Redferne who has to resort to supernatural means to stop the Warlock from kicking his ass.

Due to his utter lack of defense, hit points, and a way to replenish his magic points which forced him into attacking enemies physically, poor Donald seemed to die every time that a Heartless breathed in the same room as him. Fortunately, the sequel made him less of a glorified punching bag and more of a valuable party member... unless you're on Critical Mode, in which case his lack of either Second Chance or Once More means he'll be getting one-shotted on a regular basis while Goofy (and hopefully, Sora) will at least survive long enough to heal.

Aggressively defied in Lythande. They do exist in this universe — Lythande knows some mages that focus only on magic and ignore physicalities, and finds them weak and foolish... so Lythande, who is a rather magically-powerful immortal mage, dual-wields daggers and is no slouch with a sword.

Princess Amelia of Slayers is a well-rounded sorceress. She can utilize an effective balance of White Magic and Shamanistic Magic. However, she's usually the one that gets tossed around the most: there's when the low-ranking demon Seigram nearly kills her with a toss into a cliff wall in the second season of the anime/seventh book, and another demon breaks several bones in her body in the sixth book/fifth anime season. She also doesn't wield a weapon, which puts her at a disadvantage depending on the situation. Surprisingly, Lina, a far more powerful sorceress, is less "squishy."; early in the series she is capable of actually matching an average swordsman, it's just that people who are in her team or people they are fighting are usually either highly skilled mercenaries or very powerful high class demons that are impossible for her level of sword skills or simply immune to physical attacks, but when her magic is sealed during the plot, she continues to show she know more than a thing or two in swordsmanship.

Magnus Bane from The Mortal Instruments, has immense magical powers, but is still susceptible to physical injury. Considering how many enemies have Super Strength, Super Speed and Super Reflexes this can be a weakness. Not only Magnus Bane, but all warlocks, are the common children of demons and humans, and although they almost always have magical powers, they are not really stronger than mundanes.

Both played straight and subverted in Overlord (2012) with Ainz Ooal Gown: compared to other Yggdrasil players, he is very squishy (or brittle in his case) but in the new world, thanks to a couple of skills, even the strongest of warriors and most powerful spells can't even scratch him.

In the Hurog series, most people who are professional wizards are squishy. Justified because it's mostly a desk job. On the other hand, the protagonist, Ward, has some magical skill of his own and he is a Gentle Giant and not at all frail. Then there is Oreg, who is a powerful mage, but also a kind-of ghost, and has the body of a 17-year old boy and can shapechange into a dragon after he is freed. Not squishy.

In Persona 3 and Persona 4, the protagonist's squishiness depends entirely upon the persona he has equipped, but usually is more of a Magic Knight. Yukari is more of a Squishy Wizard in P3, while Yukiko is similarly so in P4.

Ann is the resident Squishy Wizard in Persona 5. Great at raining fiery death upon enemies but bad at taking hits and attacking physically due to mediocre HP and worse strength. Hilariously, this seems to be a case of Gameplay and Story Integration as Ann is a model that hit the genetic jackpot and can remain fit despite not exercising and subsisting on junk food and sodas. Ann's unhealthy lifestyle is most likely responsible of her squishiness.

Played with in the side series A Certain Scientific Railgun where a number of espers are shown to actually be decent at physical combat.

In Nodwick this is true with both Artax and, to a lesser extent, Piffany. Of course, if anyone actually does hurt Piffany, it is certain to bring the the rage of the other three heroes (and possibly the Powers That Be themselves) down on the transgressor at full force.

All of the monsters in Undertale, compared to humans. They attack using magic, which is quite capable of making short work of the protagonist, hence the need for a dodging mechanic. But the protagonist, in turn — a child, mind you — is also able to beat any one of them to death with their bare hands. When humankind and monsterkind came to blows long ago, the monsters were nearly wiped out and had to retreat underground.

A Certain Magical Index:
Accelerator, winner of the Super Power Lottery, is able to take down an army untouched because he's literally untouchable and can make huge explosions by essentially stomping his feet. Unfortunately, Touma can hit him, and he has absolutely no physical training which means that a guy that could survive a nuke gets taken down in a street fight. Actually, everyone Touma fights is like this when you get down to it. Except Kaori, who utterly curb stomps him without even using divine powers. Which he actually could cancel out, but still.

Misaki Shokuhou is the fifth level 5 in the city, Mental Out, with telepathy and mind control so strong she can casually take control of an entire library full of mid level espers. Unfortunately for her, she uses this power to skip PE and make people fetch things for her.
Fiamma of the Right has the power of Archangel Michael and fire manipulation, but he's a scrawny wimp who goes down in one punch. Good luck getting close enough to hit him though.
The Graviton Bomber was a bullied geek who gains the power to make explosions and decides to get revenge on everyone, even people who didn't do anything to him, by blowing them up. Mikoto, a 14 year old girl, to prove a point about powers not being the only thing that matters, floors him with a single punch.

Warcraft: Every faction's casters are very fragile, vulnerable to most ranged attacks, spells, siege weapons, dedicated anti-caster units and abilities, and of course melee units if they get close enough. Caster-type heroes like the Archmage and Lich are also kind of fragile compared to other heroes, but get all the defensive benefits of being heroes, still.

Emperor Palpatine/Darth Sidious has no lightsaber in Star Wars Battlefront (2015), relying exclusively on The Force. However, this trope only applies to his lack of physical attacks; his Force-Lightning-based attacks are nothing to sneeze at, his Force Dash gives him a downright scary burst of speed, he has good health/defense, and his Imperial Resources ability can even heal nearby allies (or, of course, himself).

Warframe:
Several of the warframes, but Mag is probably the archetypical example, since she's one of the starting 'frames. She has very low health and armor, paired with only moderate shields. But if you learn how to use her, she can clear entire maps by herself.
The Operators, the ones piloting the warframes. Despite all their incredible Void powers, they are ultimately still children with no physical enhancements or combat training. They move slowly, go down like wet cardboard in combat, and are the only player-controlled avatars that actually take falling damage. This was also part of the backstory; the Orokin initially tried to use them as weapons by themselves, but they were just too fragile to be useful. They only became the Tenno when combined with the warframes; the Operators were placed in a hidden Reservoir where they could pilot the warframes remotely. The warframes were physically strong and had real combat training, but the Technocyte Plague had ravaged their minds and made them impossible to use on their own.

Exalted mostly averts it, as anyone can learn Sorcery under the right circumstances, and there's nothing preventing a sorcerer from learning Resistance Charms. The Twilight Caste of the Solars were originally all about averting this, as when their Anima Banner flared, they could reflexively "harden" it to avoid taking damage. After the 2.5 Errata, the concerns about being one-hit-killed while prepping to cast a spell were reduced, so the Twilights were given magical senses instead; that said, the Resistance charm notes above still apply.

In XCOM 2, the Sectoid and Codex enemy types serve as spellcasters among the enemies encountered in the early to mid game. They are also never armored, have low hit points compared with mid-game enemies, and extremely vulnerable to specific weapons (sword for the Sectoids, and anti-robot weapons for the Codex). One the other hand, the late-game spellcaster enemies, the Gatekeepers and Avatars, are far from squishy, with the Gatekeeper being nearly as heavily armored as the massive Sectopod war machine.

Raven from Teen Titans isn't as squishy as she could be, seeing as she has at least some martial arts moves, but she's still the most vulnerable to direct physical attack of anyone on the team, and if her spellcasting is interrupted the effect will usually fizzle (or worse, go haywire). Her being the most vulnerable physically isn't just because she's squishy, but also because everyone else on the team has some considerable physical abilities, as the other members are a martial arts master, a cyborg, super strong and a shapeshifter. Her shields are still the way to go to protect the whole team from explosions or similar attacks.

Storm seems to play this straight as her Weather Manipulation works better at a distance while her male teammates get up close and strong attacks can knock Storm out of the air where she has the advantage. At other times Storm gloriously averts this, like when she got in a knife fight with Callisto and wasn't allowed to use her powers but to the surprise of everybody when she soundly won. Being raised on the streets really took the squishiness out of Storm.

Mages in Dragon Age: Origins are, in theory, the squishiest class. In practice, mages tend to a) put a truckload of points into Constitution to fuel Blood Magic, b) pick the Arcane Warrior specialisation and run around in full plate, c) pick Spirit Healer and just heal the damage back, or d) pick Arcane Warrior and one of the other specialisations mentioned above and thus out-Warrior the party Warrior. It's just as much of an issue in Dragon Age II, which lacks Arcane Warrior but gives the Spirit Healer specialisation a passive talent that gives them +10 Constitution and significantly increased health regeneration.

Sonea in The Black Magician Trilogy by Trudi Canavan, wins a critically important duel, that would determine whether she could continue as a commoner to learn magic, simply by the fact that her opponent had never done any exercise, and in a later scene couldn't even punch hard enough to leave a bruise on her shoulder. Sonea on the other hand was more than capable of breaking his nose and bruising his eyes badly enough to leave him blind until treated.

In-universe example with Noel from BlazBlue. She's stated to have received below average academic and athletic scores from testing, but she makes up for it by having the highest Ars Magus aptitude score ever recorded in the history of the NOL Military Academy. The poor athleticism thing seems to be an Informed Flaw, though; her fighting style is very acrobatic, though she is quite a Fragile Speedster in gameplay terms, so maybe it is true.

Ethereals in UFO: Enemy Unknown are frail aliens who couldn't walk, much less use BFGs, if not for their immense psi powers. The difficulty of fighting Ethereals compared to, say, Mutons makes UFO a deadset Linear Warriors, Quadratic Wizards situation.
Its sequel, Apocalypse, at first plays it straight, but eventually subverts it. "Hybrids" start with mediocre physical stats in comparison to baselines humans but can, through training, eventually achieve physical stats on par with veteran humans, while also becoming mental gods.

In Shining Force I and II, mages and clerics are usually at the bottom end of the stats ladder and, if you don't constantly use their powers even in inappropriate situations you might not get enough XP to keep them up with the others. Unless you are using Monks. In the first game, the only Monk has higher attack than the rest of the starting party. In the second game, (Master) Monks are so overpowered that the fighters might as well stay at home. Unfortunately for the good guys, the bad guys in II have monks too, but not nearly as hyper-strong.

Zigzagged throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Loki is interesting example as he qualifies but only in comparison to his brother and other super beings since he favors magic and range over close quarters combat. However Loki still is a Demigod and when he arrives on Earth in The Avengers he butchers trained soldiers in seconds, curbstomps Captain America and then does a Neck Lift to Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man before throwing him out a window. Still, Loki is effortlessly overpowered by the likes of the Incredible Hulk and Thanos (fatally), so squishy regardless.
Frigga, like her son Loki, values magic over physical strength, though she manages to subvert this slightly as in Thor: The Dark World she easily beats Malekith with a sword. However, Kurse quickly overpowers Frigga with one arm and then stabs her, killing her instantly. In comparison Frigga's first son Thor, survived getting stabbed multiple times among worse injuries, so Frigga despite technically being a goddess is still a Squishy Wizard as well.
Wanda Maximoff a.k.a. Scarlet Witch is one of the most powerful characters in the MCU. In Age of Ultron she disintegrates three Ultron Bots in a single blast of magic and can bend vibranium (otherwise impervious to damage) with her telekinesis, in Infinity War she can use her magic to destroy an Infinity Stone and in Avengers: Endgame she soundly overpowers Thanos when enraged. Physically, however, she's pathetic... Hawkeye is able to take her out effortlessly and even Non-Action Guy Bruce Banner manages to overpower Wanda with a headlock (though she breaks out of it in seconds with her magic). Banner even lampshades it by saying he could choke her to death without going green. True, Wanda does recover from getting blown into a window in Infinity War, so she's slightly tougher than the average human woman at least.
Averted in Doctor Strange (2016) as it's shown the Masters of the Mystic Arts give their students Training from Hell to turn them into Kung Fu Wizards thus removing squishiness from them. Strange in particular gets a Space Shard through his torso and later on is even tossed around by Thanos himself but recovers far quicker than a normal human would be able to. Played straighter with the Ancient One who like Strange gets stabbed with a Space Shard, but unlike Strange dies in surgery as a result.
Mantis from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is The Empath and with her powers she can incapacitate God-likes being such as Ego and Thanos. On the flip side, a falling rock knocks Mantis out and she is easily overpowered by stronger characters e.g. Spider-Man and of course Thanos.
Ebony Maw, Thanos's Number Two, becomes an Adaptational Badass in Infinity War, having telekinesis which allows him to kick Doctor Strange, Iron Man and Spider-Man's asses in New York. However, Maw is still wounded by a flying shard of concrete that Strange and Wong shoot back at him, then Tony easily blows Maw out of his own ship with one missile.

Below the Root: Pomma starts out with the highest spirit score, and is considered a holy child (meaning she gets favorable treatment from both Erdlings and Kindar) but is a physically frail nine-year-old girl who needs to look for strength boosting elixir and/or take frequent meals and naps to prevent keeling over. A more robust character like Neric won't need as frequent naps or meals, but had to seek out more training to boost his spirit score, and may not get a warm welcome at certain houses.

Being based on Dungeons & Dragons, the Neverwinter Nights series follows the trope. Pure wizards start with pathetic hit points — it's absolutely impossible to survive without allies to act as tanks, because you start with pathetic defensive spells and anything that so much as sneezes on you will rob you of all your hit points. And you can't even go all tin-can happy, because wearing armor reduces your spellcasting abilities. It takes a surprising amount of progression before you can cast enough defense to afford some tanking yourself; in the meantime, you'll be entirely dependent on your party for survival.

Played straight throughout the X-Men Film Series as Professor Xavier, Jean, Storm and Magneto are some of the most powerful Mutants (despite some Adaptational Wimp portrayal) and yet all of them can be taken down with the simplest attacks. Specifically Jean and Storm (before the latter’s Heroic Second Wind) were overpowered by Toad of all people. Even the Dark Phoenix was killed by single stab of Wolverine Claws despite being a "Class-5" Mutant. Almost averted by Emma Frost in X-Men: First Class thanks to her diamond powers, then Magneto incapacitates her with a bed stead.

Subverted with Wizards in Harry Potter as it's frequently shown that as well as having greater power they can survive all kinds of damage and explosive spells, so only less sturdy wizards (like Hermione) fall under this trope. In Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them it's even implied Wizards biologically are tougher than Muggles, as Newt gives Jacob, a regular dude, protective gear, saying his "skull is susceptible to injuries" when dealing with Erumpent. Nicolas Flamel is a straighter example of a squishy — or, more accurately, brittle — wizard, as the mere act of shaking his hand will break a few fingers. This doesn't make his magic any less powerful.

Rosario Vampire: Brightest Darkness: Jovian and Jacqueline, or at least the originals who served as Hokuto's Co-Dragons. They're noted to have immeasurable magical reserves, with Apoch's Laser Blade and their own powers being the only known weapons or powers thus far that can actually penetrate their barriers or deflect their energy beams, but have been shown to be rather poor physical fighters; in both of their major fights in Acts IV and V, the minute someone actually bypasses their defenses, they go down rather easily.

Justified for humans in the Myth Adventures series, where Aahz observes that, judging by Skeeve's learning curve, human lifespans aren't long enough to master both combat and spells. Nonhumans like Aahz and Tananda have longer to practice and can thus become both magically competent and non-Squishy. Humans are also one of the physically less formidable races to begin with; Skeeve's bodyguards Guido and Nunzio are terrifyingly powerful fighters by human standards, but pretty much every nonhuman in Skeeve's crew (except maybe Vic) could crush them without breaking a sweat.

Berserk has the young witch Schierke. While her magic spells make her even more effective in some situations than Guts, said spells generally take a lot of time to cast and while she's casting them she's completely helpless. And without her magic she's just a twelve-year-old girl with a staff, not at all suited for physical combat.

Reyvateils in the EXA_PICO series can't attack or defend and tend to have very low hit points. Instead, they sing a song to either cast a powerful recovery magic every turn, or to build up a Combined Energy Attack while the enemies are busy attacking their bodyguards, and then launch it and hit for massive damage. The only exception for the first two games is Coccona, a Cute Bruiser who fits as a bodyguard instead of a singer.

Avatar: The Last Airbender:
Benders in general are a bit of an interesting balance. Bending is basically a form of martial arts and generally results in most master benders being in excellent shape. However being in good shape doesn't automatically translate into actual combat skills, and most Benders are so used to relying on their powers that without them they're basically helpless against someone with actual combat training, or simply someone stronger than them. Certain individuals like Zuko and Azula seem to have significant combat training outside of their bending, but this is by no means the norm. This ends up being a Logical Weakness when it comes to chi-blocking as Ty Lee is The Dreaded for how she closes in on benders and turns off their powers with just a few simple light yet precise jabs, leaving them completely vulnerable until it wears off.
With that said even a Dark Action Girl like Azula falls under this trope due to her lack physical strength which is justified since she's a 14 year old girl. During the siege of Ba Sing Se, Aang was getting trounced by Azula until he made a Earth Bending stone fist and pushed her back effortlessly. In the comics Zuko her older brother could Neck Lift Azula like she weighed nothing.
Katara is a waterbending master, but she lacks physical strength, isn't very agile, and has no talent for hand-to-hand combat. She's completely helpless without Bending, as lampshaded by Mai in "Return to Omashu". In the episode "The Waterbending Scroll", Katara tries to run away from the pirates, not yet having the Bending ability to fight them herself, but runs right into Prince Zuko, who is able to grab her with no effort.
Similarly Ozai, despite being in prime physical condition, seems to lack any capabilities outside of bending, and during the eclipse (when both are temporarily without bending) Zuko is able to intimidate Ozai into keeping his distance simply by brandishing his swords. When he loses his bending permanently, he makes up for it by being more cunning and manipulative than usual.

Inverted in The Black Company series, in that strength of magic makes a wizard harder to kill. Evil Overlord level wizards cannot only survive but function while suffering from wounds that even the most advanced life support systems would be unable to cope with, like having your head cut off. In Dreams of Steel, Soulcatcher dismembers, burns, and scatters the ashes of a defeated rival wizard, treating it as unremarkable standard procedure.

This is the case of all magic users in Noob. The fourth novel explains that there is a trade-off between capability to use magic and physical fitness for the human habitants of the Fictional Video Game's universe. Gaea stands out among the characters in such a case, as she sometimes uses it as a semi-legitimate excuse to retreat from battle and consider her teammates (including those that are presumably just as fragile as her) as human shields.

The heavily manga-influenced indie comic The Demon Mages stretches this trope to its literal extremes with sorceress/scientist Countessa Tesryon, a succubus (closer to an energy-vampire in this series) whose insides are described as being gel — like that of a spider. This has the effect of making her both physically durable (though still weak) and, to quote artist and writer Jason Robinson, "extra squishy".

In the first game, all of the "support" classes (Engineer, Adept, Sentinel) have powerful support abilities based around technology or biotics, some of which border on Game-Breaker, but can only wear lightweight armor. The more combat oriented classes with support abilities (Infiltrator, Vanguard) have more armor and weapons skills but consequently less support capability. On the other hand, all biotics can learn Barrier, which provides significantly better shields than the best armor Soldiers can buy. And their lightweight armor tends to provide better defenses against biotic and tech attacks. Quadratic, indeed. However, the Engineer was the squishiest because in addition to lacking Barrier, it lacked the firepower that makes the other two classes Glass Cannons and/or Magikarp Power so this class would have to be doing a lot of hiding behind cover and allies in the early game with so many enemies that were either organic (ex. Thorian Creepers and Rachni) or Geth too high-level to immediately take on without some serious level-grinding.

In the sequel, Shepard can wear any type of armor regardless of class, but the support classes tend to have somewhat lower health. In addition, the squad members with biotic and tech powers tend to have lighter armor, with characters like Mordin, Tali, Kasumi, and Jack having little to no armor at all. Oddly enough, while Engineers and Adepts are not noted for having strong shields (Engineers in particular are advised to only stick their heads above cover when they have to), the Sentinel's Signature Move, Tech Armour, makes it surprisingly durable, especially if combined with a talent like Energy Drain in 3, which in extreme cases will allow a Sentinel to stand out in the open, in front of basic geth troops, without actually losing any health.

In Phantasy Star Online, the technique (magic) using class called Forces have nearly negligible physical attack and defense power and upon reaching ultimate difficulty, their own magical attacks become mostly ineffective against enemy resistance. However, once they find high-level disks for the spells Deband and Jellen, all Forces break this trope entirely and are capable of boosting the party's defense and lowering the enemy's attack so much that they become like kittens.

Averted in The Lightbringer Series. The setting's magic, called drafting, mostly summons inert Hard Light called Luxin. In order to actually use Luxin, physical activity is usually required, doing things like hauling on oars and manually pumping reeds. Further subverted in that the narrative focuses on the Blackguard, elite warrior-drafters who are in peak physical form for reasons unrelated to drafting.

Played completely straight in the Final Fantasy VII Remake with Aerith's ranged support gameplay. Whilst Cloud, Barret and even Tifa (once you buff her up) can take hits, Aerith cannot having lowest HP and Vitality in the party, requiring to be protected constantly in battles. Aerith more than makes up for this with the best Magic and Spirit stats though, and in the story she can even defend against Sephiroth’s attacks with her magic.

Jean Grey embodied this trope in her early days, as she had more power than her males peers combined, but the likes of Toad could take her down if he got close enough. Even in her later portrayals Jean despite being actually quite athletic still works better at a distance with her psi blasts, but averted with Dark Phoenix though as Phoenix Jean has enough Super Strength to lift approximately 100 tons while possessed.

Legend of the Seeker: Zedd, though he still occasionally manages to knock an enemy out with a blunt weapon from behind in cases where he can't use his magic. The series is also frequent in reminding its viewers that as powerful and dangerous as a Confessor might be, a crossbow bolt can take them out as easily as anyone else.

Tonin: Vilano-san can use his magic to disintegrate people but someone can hit him during the time it takes him to cast the spell. Prior to Season 1, he tricked a spirit into making him indestructible to avert this problem. After he's seemingly killed from being hit with his Weaksauce Weakness, he becomes squishy again.

In Final Fantasy II, equipping heavy armour decreases your Intelligence and Soul stats, so if you equip your mages with heavy armour, their magic will be almost useless, and if you equip your mage with light armour, they'll take heavy damage when they're hit. This was changed in the GBA/PSP Updated Re-release, so heavy armour will no longer decrease your magic stats, so now your wizards won't be squishy.

Final Fantasy IV
Edward can use his instruments to put status effects on opponents, but suffers from low HP, weak defences, and subpar attack strength (to the point where Edward would lose a purely physical fight with Rydia, a seven-year-old-girl). In the GBA version, this is inverted beyond level 70, as his stats undergo the greatest gain potential; but that's only if he's taken into The Very Definitely Final Dungeon combined with a lot of Level Grinding.
Tellah zigzags this. Early on, he's one of the few examples anywhere of a Stone Wall Wizard, averting this. When he first joins your party, his HP is significantly higher than the other characters, and the enemies are still weak enough that he can take some damage. When he comes back, he becomes a stone wall again, as he is still initially sturdier than Palom and Porom, and until you complete Mt. Ordeals, he lacks most of his spells and his only real purpose is to help the kids conserve MP. As the game goes on, he gradually eases into the role of Squishy Wizard as his stats actually decrease with level-ups. By the time his role in the game is finished, he is far and away the physically weakest character in your roster, so much so that his physical weakness becomes plot-relevant.

Final Fantasy XI provides the means to subvert this trope The red mage and white mage can both be very survivable if they are equipped correctly, and the blue mage isn't all that bad a starting point for a non-squishy spellcaster either. The combination of the spell Stoneskin, which provides what's effectively a small pool of bonus Hit Points, and Utsusemi, an ability to nullify hits that is activated through expendable tools which can be accessed by setting your support job to Ninja, is the most powerful and popular way to do it, but there are other approaches as well.

The Thousand Sons normally avert this trope, as they possess the combat skills and superhuman attributes of ordinary Space Marines in addition to being powerful sorcerers. Ctesias, however, plays it straight: he’s a master summoner with thousands of daemons at his beck and call, but the millennia he spent and the methods he used to bind all those daemons into his service have left him sickly and emaciated, and he can’t hold a candle to his fellow Thousand Sons in physical combat.

In the Disney Mouse and Duck Comics, most witches are easily taken out if their magic is neutralized, helping those who are targeted by them to survive.

Persona:
In Persona 1 and Persona 2: Innocent Sin and Eternal Punishment, persona selection and stat growth determine a character's role. Maki is very squishy in the first game. In Innocent Sin, Jun is overall squishier than the other characters. You can also choose to build your protagonist (unnamed in the first, Tatsuya in P2:IS, and Maya in P2:EP) as squishy or not as you like.
In Persona 3 and Persona 4, the protagonist's squishiness depends entirely upon the persona he has equipped, but usually is more of a Magic Knight. Yukari is more of a Squishy Wizard in P3, while Yukiko is similarly so in P4.
Ann is the resident Squishy Wizard in Persona 5. Great at raining fiery death upon enemies but bad at taking hits and attacking physically due to mediocre HP and worse strength. Hilariously, this seems to be a case of Gameplay and Story Integration as Ann is a model that hit the genetic jackpot and can remain fit despite not exercising and subsisting on junk food and sodas. Ann's unhealthy lifestyle is most likely responsible of her squishiness.

Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis:
Pamela starts off with poor physical defense made worse by a number of Cast From Hit Points spells, but subverts the trope once she unlocks Physical Immunity. Coupled with her high magic resistance and Life Drain spells, she makes an incredible tank.
Roxis, on the other hand, keeps this status throughout the game. Even Jess takes hits better than he does, and she's Secretly Dying.

Averted in Doctor Strange (2016) as it's shown the Masters of the Mystic Arts give their students Training from Hell to turn them into Kung Fu Wizards thus removing squishiness from them. Strange in particular gets a Space Shard through his torso and later on is even tossed around by Thanos himself but recovers far quicker than a normal human would be able to. Played straighter with the Ancient One who like Strange gets stabbed with a Space Shard, but unlike Strange dies in surgery as a result.

Oracle from the Batman and Birds of Prey books is frequently regarded as one by the few who see her due to her paraplegia and the fact that she concentrates on the mission control/hacker deity side of things. Those mooks who get in range of her clubs find out differently, usually the hard way (although compared to the people she runs with she is not that dangerous). This is perhaps to be expected, given that before she was shot and paralyzed, Oracle was Batgirl.

Melia in Xenoblade has natural ability to manipulate ether energy, which is about as close to magic as it gets in the game's setting. Her defensive stats aren't actually any worse then the rest of the bunch, but her HP is barely over a third of the amount that the toughest party members possess at max level. On the other hand, she's the only party member who's capable of dealing over a million damage in a single attack under the right circumstances.

Sorcerers or equivalent (convocators, etc.) in Anima: Beyond Fantasy aren't exempt of this, even with the large possibilities of customizing them the game offers. Lowest life points per level and high costs of the abilities to attack, parry, and use armor, even if it does not interfere with their ability to cast spells or invoke creatures, say it all.
Averted by casters specializing in Creation magic, especially ones that also take the Arcane Warfare metamagic tree branch. Creation magic offers a lot of long-duration buffing spells that include things like increased maximum health, increased resistances (both status and elemental), accelerated regeneration, shielding (so they can use their magic-aiming ability to parry things), and a "you must be this damaging to hurt me" barrier against things not capable of cutting energy, as well as offering direct healing spells. The Arcane Warfare metamagic branch cranks up the shielding aspect in particular, making the shields able to absorb much more damage and have a better effective parrying ability with which to do so. It's not impossible for them to go so far as to be a party's tank, especially if they also delve into Peace (easier group shielding, better parrying with magic shields) or Earth (has a long-duration armor buff that can outclass full plate) magic; the main restriction on all this is that much of humanity in the main setting does not think kindly of the supernatural.

In effect somewhat different in Dragon Quest IX: while Mages do have lower than average Resilience and HP as well as less gear that provides decent defense available, you can still give them roughly average durability with the right gear... it's just a bad idea. You see, unlike with Attack, weapons do not give a very significant boost to Magical Might; most of the boosting for that stat comes from your clothing. So, while you could have a mage with a decent amount of durability it comes at the cost of magic powerful enough to do decent damage.

Pretty much every dark magician in The Dragon Prince has powerful spells, but is almost helpless in close combat. However, this also seems to apply to many of the elves that use nature magic, depending on the element with which they are connected. Janai seems to be an exception. Despite her magic, she is primarily a warrior, and quite a good one.

Mahou Sensei Negima!:
It is explained that mages can infuse their bodies with magical power, converting it into physical strength. However, this requires a great deal of control, and it seems only well-trained mages can do this and even then, the standard mages will get destroyed by purely physical fighters. This is why they usually form pactio with fighters to protect them while they stay in the back line. It was originally presented as a trade-off, in that focusing on self-enhancement and physical training comes at the cost of improving magical versatility and maximum power yield, so that you're safer and more self-reliant, but there's a greater number of things you simply aren't equipped to handle.
Negi defeats martial arts masters in a single punch because he uses combat magic, but this prowess only come after he goes Magic Knight and starts seriously training in martial arts like a straight up warrior would. His unwillingness to depend on others has directly led both to his increased dependence on his students for noncombat support and most of his Black Magic-related problems.
Evangeline notes that beyond a certain level of power, the Magic Knight and artillery mage become indistinguishable due to the sheer amount of power a mage is then capable of channeling. None of the high-level mages in the story have problems with close-ranged combat.
The squishiness was why Kotarō initially despised western mages. He started respecting Negi after he proved not-so-squishy.

My Hero Academia:
Downplayed. Todoroki is by no means weak or un-athletic, in fact he's on the upper end of his class in terms of speed and strength. He just relies on the devastating long-ranged power of his Quirk so much that he falls into the danger of overspecializing, which is why Aizawa faces off against him during his exam, so as to negate his Quirk and force him to not rely on it temporarily.
Aoyama’s lasers are very powerful, but he's got no endurance. During their fight in the U.A. Sports Festival Arc, Ashido takes him down with a single punch once she evades his lasers and gets close to him.
Yaoyorozu can create just about any kind of object she wishes, but depending on the object, it takes time to make them. So she needs others to hold off the enemy while she creates the materials she needs. While her creations can do a lot of damage (like when she makes an entire cannon) and is possibly the most versatile Quirk of any character, in terms of direct physical prowess she's as normal as anyone else, as demonstrated in her fight with Kendo.
Aizawa notes that Midoriya is simply more physically fit than Shinso, so once Midoriya manages to break his mind control and the two enter a Quirkless grappling match he overpowers him with relative ease. He seems to have acknowledged this and is actively working on it; he's noted to be bulkier in muscle when he reappears after the U.A. Sports Festival Arc, but still not fast or athletic as the students in the Hero Course.

The Elder Scrolls:
For Player Characters in the series, this tends to start out as the case for "wizard" type characters but tends to become averted as they level up, following along with Linear Warriors, Quadratic Wizards. Downplayed (after Daggerfall) due to their class/skill/levelling systems — the distinction between wizard-types and other-types are softer than in most other games. It is entirely possible to have what is otherwise a mage-type that uses heavy armor (which in Morrowind and Oblivion will also lead to the stat governing health being more advantageous and easy to increase). When it comes to Skyrim, the removal of the class system means that this trope is more something you grow into as you put more resources into magicka and your magical skills than something you start as.
In-universe, the Altmer (High Elves) are the most physically frail race on average, but also have the highest natural talents for magic. They do employ armed-and-armored soldiers as well, but each and every one of these soldiers uses magic as a supplement in combat, and still tends to be squishier (on average) than the standard rank-and-file soldiers of more combat oriented races, such as the Nords and Orcs.
The Bretons, while still a bit more hardy than Altmer, they are the most physically frail and most magically gifted of the races of Men. Notice that says physically frail, as the Bretons have the highest resistance to magical attacks of any race — Man, Mer, or Beast. They make for excellent Magic Knights and Mage Killers as a result.

One Piece:
Nico Robin is squishy compared to the freaks of nature that inhabit Grand Line and certain members of her crew, if you manage to get past her long-range power (which can bring down strong fighters like Pell and Tashigi) you have a good chance at victory. Though it's shown Robin has greater endurance than most women as seen when she survives a beatdown from Yama in Skypeia, so she's still technically the toughest chick of The Straw Hats.
Nami also fits, especially the wizard part, what with her Clima-Tact's ability to create mirages, rain, and lightning. However physically Nami's only slightly stronger than Usopp and despite some staff skill needs the Monster Trio or Chopper to save her ass when the situation gets dire. Averted in Punk Hazard when Sanji gets put in Nami's body viva Freaky Friday situation by Trafalgar Law, where it's shown Nami's body can actually do all the superhuman stuff Sanji does. So Nami simply lacks the training and therefore is a Squishy Wizard as result.
Caesar Clown. Despite (or, perhaps more accurately, because of) his logia abilities, he's downright useless in a fight without them. That's why he relies on the fame of his far more powerful benefactors, because he's a weakling by New World standards and he damn well knows it.
Caesar is not alone in this regard most Logia users who think they’re indestructible quickly turn into Squishy Wizards when their Nigh-Invulnerability is bypassed.
Sugar fit the part too; her powers were incredibly lethal, able to transform and enslave someone with simply a touch, making it hard to get close to her. (Even Robin, as mentioned above, was only able to hold her for a few seconds before succumbing.) Sugar herself, however, was rather fragile; the whole plan to take her out revolved around tricking her into eating a spicy berry and hoping she'd pass out. It didn't work, but scaring her with a Wild Take did the job.
Basil Hawkins is pretty squishy, despite his powerful DF he outright says to Luffy and Zoro he wouldn't be able to take the pair in a straight fight. However the nature of Hawkin's Voodoo Doll power means no matter how hard you hit him, the damage will pass on to one of his Mooks leaving him unharmed. Though Admiral Kizaru's Light 'em Up DF negated Hawkins's advantage. Also Law was able to decisively overpower Hawkins once he bypassed the latter’s defence.
Scratchman Apoo has a devastating Devil Fruit Power which turns music into attacks, even powerful combatants like Luffy, Zoro and even Kizaru have been caught off guard and badly damaged by his DF. Though with said Apoo himself is not nearly as tough as other pirates, Kidd was able knock him around easily and Zoro (when pissed off enough) takes him down with one Shishi Sonson. Also Apoo’s Devil Fruit can be easily negated if you cover your ears.

In one of the additional OVA-episodes of Ojamajo Doremi, the title character meets an ill (cancer, as it seems) girl called Nozomi, who believes in witches and that a witch's magic can only be strong, when her body is weak. Nozomi is discovered by the Ojamajos to be the ideal choice for becoming a witch-apprentice, since she seems already to be able to use magic to certain extent, even without using magic equipment or even a tap. However, Nozomi dies from her disease, before the girls are able to introduce her to the queen.

Billy/Wiccan from Young Avengers. He's a magic-using Reality Warper who can deal out some serious damage, but, like Zatanna, a good hit to the throat can usually take him out of a fight. He is capable of silently casting big spells, but it almost always happens when under duress and tends to have unpredictable results such as accidentally putting everyone in Times Square into temporary magical comas. He's gotten better at using his powers properly without outright needing to speak, but ultimately he's still physically an ordinary teenager with no extra durability.

Pokémon:
As a psychic example, Alakazam. According to the Pokédex fluff in Emerald, its muscles are so weak that it has to use its psychic powers just to stand and move around. Most Psychic Pokémon are infamous for having low defense and HP in contrast with high speed and Special Attack. The exceptions are usually Legendary Pokémon. Even Mewtwo became this when the Special stat was divided into two stats. Also, Alakazam has the second highest permanent base Special Attack of all non-legendary Pokémon, beat only by Chandelure (though Porygon-Z ties with it; Zen Mode Darmanitan and Blade Forme Aegislash also beat it, but only as long as they're in their corresponding formes). Pokémon with high Special Attack and Speed are called Special Sweepers. In competition, Special Sweepers are used to wipe out as many Pokémon as quickly as it can before ultimately dying... very good examples of glass cannons in action. (Chandelure, for the record, has competent defenses, and thus does not fit this trope quite as well as Alakazam, although it does have low HP.)
Other notable examples include Gengar, Mismagius, Florges, and several Electric-type Pokémon, such as Jolteon, Manectric, and Heliolisk.

Ana in Mother 1 is the only party member capable of using offensive PSI and has huge library of PSI abilities (both offensive and healing). Her attack and defense are abysmal however, her non-PSI attack does one maybe two damage and while her PSI attacks are useful in battle she's typically knocked out before real use can be made of them. She can make a great healer but can't use her powers if knocked out (which is often) ironically she learns the PSI to revive knocked out members far before anyone but being unable to use them on herself means lots of expensive hospital trips. Made worse is the fact she joins the party at Level 1 while other party members are typically between the Level 18-30 mark meaning lots of level grinding to get her to the point were she can survive.

Mages in all The World of Darkness games are by far its most powerful and versatile supernatural creatures in general — but since they're physically human, they're still Squishy Wizards compared to vampires, Prometheans, werewolves, and demons, and need time to set up their more impressive feats, not to mention the risk of a Paradox backlash if any Muggles see them working "magick."

Meanwhile in the Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion manga, Euphie is given this treatment, and shown to be unable to kick a soccer ball more than a few feet. This despite being a member of the Britannian Royal Family, and thus guaranteed to be at least somewhat intelligent and good with plans (she was able to "defeat" Lelouch, as he himself admitted, when it came to the SAZ), as well as being Cornelia's baby sis.

Taako of The Adventure Zone. In their very first boss fight, he takes one hit from Magic Brian and it wipes out all of his hit points. It gets even worse in the Suffering Game arc, because he ends up having to sacrifice some of his max hit points to move on with the game. Wizards having low hit points is normal for Dungeons & Dragons, but Taako is now absurdly squishy for his level.

Legend of the Five Rings subverts this in various ways. Mechanically spellcasting depends heavily on a character's Rings. Each Ring has two traits, one physical and one mental, so any Shugenja (spellcaster) worth his scrolls has at least one good physical trait. Fire users are very agile and Earth casters are very durable for example so the "Wizard" is not much more "squishy" than any other character. There are no class restrictions to wearing armour and wielding honking big swords if someone is a shugenja either; the restrictions are largely social. Carrying a katana implies that you know how to use it, wearing armour states that you are a military combatant rather than a priest like other shugenja.

Final Fantasy:
In Final Fantasy II, equipping heavy armour decreases your Intelligence and Soul stats, so if you equip your mages with heavy armour, their magic will be almost useless, and if you equip your mage with light armour, they'll take heavy damage when they're hit. This was changed in the GBA/PSP Updated Re-release, so heavy armour will no longer decrease your magic stats, so now your wizards won't be squishy.
Final Fantasy IV
Edward can use his instruments to put status effects on opponents, but suffers from low HP, weak defences, and subpar attack strength (to the point where Edward would lose a purely physical fight with Rydia, a seven-year-old-girl). In the GBA version, this is inverted beyond level 70, as his stats undergo the greatest gain potential; but that's only if he's taken into The Very Definitely Final Dungeon combined with a lot of Level Grinding.
Tellah zigzags this. Early on, he's one of the few examples anywhere of a Stone Wall Wizard, averting this. When he first joins your party, his HP is significantly higher than the other characters, and the enemies are still weak enough that he can take some damage. When he comes back, he becomes a stone wall again, as he is still initially sturdier than Palom and Porom, and until you complete Mt. Ordeals, he lacks most of his spells and his only real purpose is to help the kids conserve MP. As the game goes on, he gradually eases into the role of Squishy Wizard as his stats actually decrease with level-ups. By the time his role in the game is finished, he is far and away the physically weakest character in your roster, so much so that his physical weakness becomes plot-relevant.
Aerith, the White Mage of Final Fantasy VII, fits this role quite well, especially if you load her up with enough attack magic Materia, which boosts the MP and Magic stats while nerfing her HP. Though her healing magic can negate this, In-Universe Aeirth is certainly a Squishy Wizard as well considering Tifa, Zack and Cloud could survive getting slashed (and even impaled in Cloud's case) by Sephiroth... while Aeirth on the other hand.
Played completely straight in the Final Fantasy VII Remake with Aerith's ranged support gameplay. Whilst Cloud, Barret and even Tifa (once you buff her up) can take hits, Aerith cannot having lowest HP and Vitality in the party, requiring to be protected constantly in battles. Aerith more than makes up for this with the best Magic and Spirit stats though, and in the story she can even defend against Sephiroth’s attacks with her magic.
Final Fantasy XI provides the means to subvert this trope The red mage and white mage can both be very survivable if they are equipped correctly, and the blue mage isn't all that bad a starting point for a non-squishy spellcaster either. The combination of the spell Stoneskin, which provides what's effectively a small pool of bonus Hit Points, and Utsusemi, an ability to nullify hits that is activated through expendable tools which can be accessed by setting your support job to Ninja, is the most powerful and popular way to do it, but there are other approaches as well.
Lulu and Yuna in Final Fantasy X do not take hits well at all. At the very least, they both make up for it by having the best evasion stat in the game and simply dodging. Oh, and for some reason Lulu comes with game-best physical defense, though not enough to offset her game-worst HP by much.
Final Fantasy XIII has Hope Estheim. He has the highest magic stat in your party and is the only one who can learn every offensive spell. However, he also has the lowest HP in your party.

The various "magical" creature types in Magic: The Gathering, such as wizards and shamans, tend to have lower power and toughness (on average) when compared to more smash-mouth creature types, such as beasts and warriors. As such, they tend to have more varied and useful abilities, taking the role of support or utility creatures. The new Planeswalker cards, introduced later, undermine this by making some fairly (if variably) tough characters who are, essentially, powerful wizards. One case of this appears in abilities with Gideon Jura, who as an ability that doesn't affect his loyalty that turns him into an indestructible 6/6 human soldier.

Somewhat averted in Tales of Maj'Eyal. All the caster classes have spells or abilities that help them deal with incoming damage. For example, Archmages can create energy shields, Paradox Mages magically toughen their skin, and Necromancers use their mastery of death to survive at negative health, so they're not necessarily squishy if you know what you're doing. However, these defensive spells are subject to cooldown and thus need to be used at the right time, which is trickier than simply relying on a warrior's superior armor and health. They're also vulnerable to being dispelled by antimagic or other casters.
The previous iteration of the game, Tales of Middle Earth, featured the sorcerer class, which gets more spells and magic power than other mages can ever dream of but also suffers up to a 50% HP cut.

Played with in Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic, where physical training actually allows magicians to gain MORE magic power, because when their bodies are stronger, it allows them to handle the strain casting spells puts on them. Pretty much every magician can hold their own against physical fighters as well because borg, which is a Deflector Shield that can only be broken by magic or metal vessels, is perhaps the most basic spell available.

A major factor of Stand users in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure after Part 3. Yes, stands are powerful, come in many flavors and a representation of a persons fighting spirit. However many of the users are fairly weak physically and likely to go down easily once one finds a way around their powers. The Big Bad and The Dragon (Dio Brando and Vanilla Ice) are an exception: even without their Stands they are still superhumanly powerful vampires.

Loki is interesting example as he qualifies but only in comparison to his brother and other super beings since he favors magic and range over close quarters combat. However Loki still is a Demigod and when he arrives on Earth in The Avengers he butchers trained soldiers in seconds, curbstomps Captain America and then does a Neck Lift to Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man before throwing him out a window. Still, Loki is effortlessly overpowered by the likes of the Incredible Hulk and Thanos (fatally), so squishy regardless.

In The Denpa Men, Denpa Men with antennas (essentially, magical powers) have far weaker physical stats and tend to be slower than Denpa Men without skills. The more offensively-oriented the skill, the weaker their stats tend to be, too—so a Denpa Man who can blast all enemies with light will have weaker stats than one who can merely blast one enemy with light, who will have weaker stats than the speed-upper, who will have weaker stats than the 'man who merely cures Poison for a living.

Doubly so in Warhammer Online: not only are Bright Mages and Dark Elf Sorcerers weaklings who have fewer hitpoints than everyone else and lack any form of armor whatsoever, but their spells can actually cause a magical backlash which hurts them too.

Eleven from Stranger Things, her powerful telekinesis makes her the strongest character in the cast and she’s even capable of defeating an Eldritch Abomination, however like Jean Grey (whom she’s based off) Eleven is very physically fragile. Though justified given she’s a small pre-teen girl. It’s highlighted during her fight with Flayed Billy in Season 3 as while Eleven might be more powerful than him, Billy’s Super Strength in close quarters rendered Eleven’s advantage obsolete, requiring Mike to come to her aid while Billy was giving her a choking Neck Lift.

Nico Minoru from Runaways. If you can prevent her from summoning the Staff of One, she's powerless (although she has been seen using the odd spell without it). Then again, considering that drawing blood is what summons the staff, engaging her in combat still might not be a good idea.

In Jason Cosmo and its sequel, mages supposedly have fast recuperative abilities and enhanced stamina (apparently the result of magical energy constantly pouring into the body), but we virtually never see any evidence of this, with the exception of the Lancer of the story, arcane master Mercury Boltblaster. Mercury has the excuse of spending much of his life travelling to obtain the finest education in the world in martial arts and swordsmanship, to avoid having to depend on spellcraft. As he spends much of the books either unable to cast spells or unable to do so without calling hostile and (ludicrously) overwhelming force to his exact location, this turns out to have been an excellent use of his time.

In The Dark Eye, all magic users have trouble with heavy armour, since iron interferes with magic. Druids have a religious taboo against smelted metal, so they can't even use a regular knife (do get skill points for flintknapping, though). Wizards specifically are forbidden by law to wield weapons bigger than a dagger, or wear armour heavier than a gambeson.

Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE:
Kiria Kurono is the game's dedicated mage. She has the highest Magic stat, high magic defense, and access to some of the game's most powerful spells. She also has the lowest Maximum HP, one of the lowest physical defenses, and the lowest Strength. The latter doesn't matter much, since Kiria is also the only party member with no physical skills.
Tsubasa Oribe, despite wielding a lance as a weapon, is also this. Her Magic is nearly as good Kiria's and she has access to both Zan and Agi spells, but her defense, attack, and HP are low, and she's the only party member who is weak to two types of physical attacks.

Whilst most of the Fairy Tail cast are either Kung Fu Wizards or Magic Knights, a handful of characters play this straight. Levy and Bixlow are both pretty weak if you can get past their magic (and if you have your eyes closed in Bixlow's case). Wendy and Lucy near the beginning were also pretty helpless if their Magic was overcome, though Wendy got by this by training and emulating Natsu's fighting style more and Lucy eventually figured out how to use her spirits' powers herself. This is discussed early on, when some mercenaries mention that most mages neglect to keep their bodies in shape while they study magic. They must not have met many.

Fate/stay night:
Noted to be generally true of Caster-class Servants. The game's Caster is an unbelievably powerful spellcaster, but she is considered among the weakest Servants because the others all outdo her in physical capability. In fact, in Unlimited Blade Works, she is taken down easily by a mere human being in a fist fight, which would be completely out of the question for any other Servant.
Rin notes that the tendency for mages to be physically weak is quite well-known, and many modern mages train themselves in some form of physical combat to mitigate this. Rin herself is reasonably athletic, knows basic martial arts, and can use magic to strengthen her own body.

Suicide Squad: Enchantress possesses an insane amount of magical power, to the point that she's able to defeat Superman and that John Constantine believes her to be fully capable of destroying the world. However, her human host, June Moone is a graphic designer and is about as physically fit as you'd expect from such. This has led to Enchantress being defeated rather easily if she's hit- at one point, she was comatose for hours after being headbutted.

The eponymous characters of The Magicians have a borderline-godlike array of magical powers that can make them virtually unstoppable in combat once they've gotten used to the stress of the battlefield. Unfortunately, they remain physically ordinary human beings unless they're already magically buffing their health: in the climax, the Beast is able to get the drop on one magician by biting his hands off before he can finish casting a spell, and though Alice is able to keep him at bay with a combination Wizard Duel / Shapeshifter Showdown, all the Beast has to do is deliver a single Megaton Punch and she's down for the count. The same cannot be said for Alice as a Niffin, who manages to rip the Beast's head off with her bare hands.

Warhammer 40,000 plays this straight by most races' psykers, with the exception of some being real hardcases, such as Tyranid Hive Tyrants (but not Zoanthropes), Space Marine Librarians, Grey Knights and Chaos Daemons. Eldar Farseers are actually tougher than most other Eldar, due to slowly turning into crystal.

Shadowrun is mostly in the same boat as GURPS.
Anyone can pile on armor and anyone can be good at dodging and have a high Body stat, but Mages have to spread their points thinner, though, because they have magic to spend them on. And non-mages can afford to pile on cyberware and bioware that can give substantial defensive bonuses.
Wizards maintain a high casualty rate in Shadowrun due to a simple aphorism: "Geek the mage first." The cheapest heavy-damage abilities are magical, as are the only rapid healing abilities. Thus, the one throwing fireballs and healing spells gets the first clip emptied into him.
Drain; a few too many spells combined with poor rolls on Drain Resistance, and the mage ends up knocking himself out.

In LostMagic, this is the justification for your Monster Allies; however with the right Sadistic Choice and resulting All Your Powers Combined Upgrade, you can subvert this by using the elemental "Dance" spells in which Isaac, the protagonist, runs up to an enemy with his staff charged and smacks several different kinds of snot out of said enemy.

Drowtales:
Chrys'tel has shades of this. So far, she's gotten her ass handed to her pretty much any time she engaged someone in close quarters combat, including against Ariel, Shinae Sate'ja and a mook who took advantage of her not restraining his arms and likely would've killed her if not for interference. She's a very effective fighter from dragonback and when using her blood sorcery, but close quarters seems to be a weakness of hers.
By Word of God, Snadhya'rune put all her training into controlling mana and nether arts in all their forms, especially the various forms of summoning. However, she completely neglected any form of martial arts. As a result, in Chapter 50, despite having blocked or shrugged off every magical attack her sister Nishi'kanta could throw at her with no visible effort, she goes down with embarrassing ease when Nishi simply climbs into the massive summon Snadhya's controlling and starts braining her with a rock.

Warhammer:
Wizards (apart from an extra wound or two) are barely more resilient than an average foot soldier. Then there's the Slann: although they can't fight in combat, they are near as dammit impossible to kill, having the second-highest number of wounds in the entire game, are always surrounded by Temple Guard to protect against physical attack, and have big shiny magic shields to protect against ranged. Also avoided by Vampires; already more than equal in combat to the Lords of any race except Chaos, you can then trick them out and make them the equal of almost any magic Lord. Speaking of Chaos, their wizards also have a tendency of being a lot harder than they have any right to be; mortal Chaos Sorcerers are the only wizards in the game that can wear armour. For the complete antithesis of Squishy Wizard, nothing beats sticking a couple of magic levels on a full-fledged Greater Daemon.
Vampires aren't dedicated wizards, the magic using lords of most factions start at level 3 and can be upgraded to level 4, Vampire Lords start at level 2 and can only be upgraded to level 3, so they might be better described as Magic Knights than wizards. Similar deal with Archeon in the Chaos army, who is in addition to being arguably the strongest fighting model in the game (currently), is also a level 2 wizard.
Ogre Butchers are Smash Mooks that practice a form of magic known as Gut Magic. And due to a quirk in the rules (which is acknowledged by the design team as technically legal, but not intended) they can also wear magical armor. Note that the basic Ogre Butcher has a statline the same as most enemy generals, allowing them to more than hold their own in a scrap.
Then there is the High Elf mage Teclis, who is the extreme of this trope. Aside from having 3 wounds (which is meh by lord standards), he has the worst defensive stats in his army, who are Glass Cannons to begin with... and the best magic rules in the game. According to the fluff, Teclis' body is so weak he needs a regular diet of healing potions just to stay alive.

Lulu and Yuna in Final Fantasy X do not take hits well at all. At the very least, they both make up for it by having the best evasion stat in the game and simply dodging. Oh, and for some reason Lulu comes with game-best physical defense, though not enough to offset her game-worst HP by much.

In The Supervillainy Saga Gary Karkofsky is actually an aversion. While he's not very powerful in a world of Flying Brick superheroes, he's actually got durability as one of his superpowers. It means he's a decidedly "un-squishy" wizard despite the fact it most often is used to allow him to survive the beatings he gets.

In My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Twilight Sparkle sometimes is and sometimes isn't shown to be one. Overall, she seems to be a downplayed example. Although she does lack in physical strength, she does have stamina and endurance to spare (necessary for her Iron Butt Monkey status). Occasionally, Twilight manages to compensate for her lack of strength by using her vast knowledge to accomplish a physical task in the most efficient manner that requires less brawn (as shown when she wins fifth place in a race involving dozens of competitors without using magic, because she knows a lot about the proper technique even though she had never raced before).

In Child of the Storm, while Harry Potter/Thorson steadily develops a series of very potent abilities that turn out to be very useful once they stop blowing up in his face, he's still a rather small and skinny thirteen year old boy, at least to begin with. While some proper nutrition and a growth spurt help somewhat with this, plus the slow and steady manifestation of his Asgardian heritage there's a small problem: for most of the first book, he's basically a small- to medium-sized teenager physically, he has no real combat training until halfway into the story. And as he finds out the hard way, he's not even stab-proof, much less bulletproof. Oh, and most of those out to kill him are in his dad's weight-class. He becomes less this trope as a combination of more serious combat training, wising up, and developing approximately Supersoldier physical abilities by the start of the sequel means that he can take most human/near human opponents in close combat, and his Psychic Powers are vast, if still only partly trained. However, he is still not bulletproof (while he can pull a telekinetic Bullet Catch, he can only do it if he has warning), and when his Psychic Powers are blocked and he's thrown in an arena with the Blob a.k.a. Dudley Dursley, he's in real trouble, and winds up multiple broken bones before he figures out a way around his problem (he figures out that his Psychic Powers are contained rather than blocked entirely, starts using his magic creatively, and makes like Kon-El).

Lords of Magic has this and the enemy AI is very aware of it, making a beeline for your mages the second battle starts. The main thing that makes the Death faction's special creature the Lich superior to other mages isn't its immense mana pool, but the fact that it has decent physical stats and the Defend ability, allowing it to cast some spells and turtle up instead of you devoting all your concentration to keeping it alive.

Magic-users in The Dresden Files can end up falling into this trap somewhat easily because (a) they need to spend a chunk of refresh on their powerset, leaving little to nothing for more "mundane" human-level stunts and (b) the system sharply constrains how many "top-level" and second-tier skills any given character can have and being competent at magic practically requires being good in three specific skills — Conviction, Discipline, and Lore — that, while not without their mundane uses (Conviction in particular sets the length of a character's mental stress track), aren't exactly very applicable to combat. Going the Magic Knight route is possible to an extent, that character is just apt to end up average at best (and possibly subpar) at anything that's not magic or fighting, which as in any modern setting is its own potential handicap in the Dresdenverse.

Played straight in Dragon Ball, the few cases we see of magic tends to not be directed towards combat. The one time a magician tried to fight was Babidi fighting Piccolo, and Piccolo quickly cut him in half (though it was a bit longer in the anime). Later, Buu easily kills Babidi by gagging him so he couldn't use any spells.

Zatanna again in Young Justice. She's in good physical condition but she lacks the extensive combat training of Artemis or Robin. Prior to Zatanna's introduction to the show, Miss Martian also functioned like this: she had powerful offensive abilities with her telekinesis and telepathy, but her only defensive abilities were camouflaging herself or phasing through objects and she tended to go down quickly if she was actually hit.

Mother:
Ana in Mother 1 is the only party member capable of using offensive PSI and has huge library of PSI abilities (both offensive and healing). Her attack and defense are abysmal however, her non-PSI attack does one maybe two damage and while her PSI attacks are useful in battle she's typically knocked out before real use can be made of them. She can make a great healer but can't use her powers if knocked out (which is often) ironically she learns the PSI to revive knocked out members far before anyone but being unable to use them on herself means lots of expensive hospital trips. Made worse is the fact she joins the party at Level 1 while other party members are typically between the Level 18-30 mark meaning lots of level grinding to get her to the point were she can survive.
Similar story with EarthBound's Paula who also starts out at level 1 when you get her and you have to travel through an area that has monsters that tend to one shot her. Although unlike Ana, she doesn't stay as that squishy and she isn't totally incompetent in physical damage as is the norm for this trope.

Casters in Ryzom can be utterly devastating with high-level spells and magic, but have to wear light armor to get the most out of it without a penalty and may have to Cast From Hit Points if they want to not use too much Sap (the game's equivalent to Mana); thus, should their target survive long enough to get into melee range (or otherwise retaliate)... the Caster likely won't.

Tolietnator and Him in Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion. The former uses toilet paper and a plunger to fight and his PTE is an extreme Game-Breaker. The latter can transform to attack, and weird recovery, and he has a bunch of annoying glitches.

Diablo III has two such classes: the Wizard and the Witch Doctor. Interestingly, the Wizard himself is more of a Glass Cannon than the Witch Doctor. The former deals a large amount of direct damage, while the Witch Doctor relies on summoned pets, indirect damage and status effects.

In Pokémon Reset Bloodlines, several characters have become Bloodliners, who are essentially humans who have Pokémon-related abilities. Anabel is a Psychic-Heart Bloodliner, which means she has the ability to learn any Psychic-type move, has their standard abilities including telepathy, telekinesis and teleportation, and the capacity to understand any Psychic-type Pokémon. However, while she's very proficient in the use of her powers, she lags behind on the physical department, which becomes apparent when put through a harsh training regime by Iris.

Mages in Sinjid: Shadow of the Warrior and Priests in Sinjid have powerful magic abilities, but are lacking in health and physical strength. Depending on the build you choose, the Priest can either be a magically-based Glass Cannon or a magically-based Fragile Speedster. Interestingly enough, the Mage inverts the Linear Warriors, Quadratic Wizards trope; it starts out stronger than the Warrior, but becomes outclassed by it lategame. The Priest plays it straight, however.
Skeleton Mages have no physical attacks and are fragile without their cloaks, but make up for it with their healing abilities and magic attacks.
Warlord Niroshi is both this and a Stone Wall; He has poor physical strength, but has high vitality and speed, can summon barriers that block all damage, and likes to summon and hide behind his Risen Fighters while sniping you from a distance.

Inheritance Cycle:
Riders in general subvert this. They are generally both capable in combat and some of the best magic users around. Having a Dragon watching your back tends to help in both regards, of course.
Oromis is the Cripple who is Whole. He can't use large amounts of magic and he has seizures from time to time. This (especially the latter) contributed to his death in Brisingr.
The High Priest (Priestess?) of Helgrind gave up all of its limbs (and part of its tongue) in ritual self-mutilation. It also possesses incredible psychic powers which it uses in a mental battle with Eragon, Arya, Angela, and Solembum. Oh, and it battles these super-powerful magicians all at the same time.

Dragon Quest:
Dragon Quest I: By the time they get to the Dracolord, most players can kill his first form in three hits.
In Dragon Quest II, the Princess of Moonbrooke is a powerful mage, but a poor attacker.
In Dragon Quest III, Mages and Priests are far frailer than the Warrior, with smaller HP pools and much more limited armor selection, though the latter's sky-high Agility still makes them tougher than the spellcaster.
Dragon Quest IV: Borya has low HP and Defense, but makes up for it with an assortment of useful spells.
Dragon Quest V: Bella's physical stats are awful and she is much better suited to casting spells. Too bad you can't control her.
Dragon Quest VI: Depending on how you develop Milly, Ashlynn and Nevan, they can become great spellcasters with poor physical stats.
Dragon Quest VII: Maribel's a good mage, but her HP and Defense need several seed boosts to keep her alive against tougher foes.
Dragon Quest VIII: Jessica can wipe out whole enemies with her spells and can dish out decent damage, but she's not very resistant to damage herself.
In effect somewhat different in Dragon Quest IX: while Mages do have lower than average Resilience and HP as well as less gear that provides decent defense available, you can still give them roughly average durability with the right gear... it's just a bad idea. You see, unlike with Attack, weapons do not give a very significant boost to Magical Might; most of the boosting for that stat comes from your clothing. So, while you could have a mage with a decent amount of durability it comes at the cost of magic powerful enough to do decent damage.
Dragon Quest XI: Veronica can wipe out waves of enemies with her magic, but having the lowest HP pool and defense in the party means she will crumple like a wet tissue paper the moment a powerful enemy decides to target her.
Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and The Blight Below: Nera's the most magic-oriented character in the game, but her Defense is low.

Same deal with Shadow Weaver in the reboot Netflix series She-Ra and the Princesses of Power; she's a master of dark magic, who can be knocked out with one punch.

Willow was BOTH Smart Girl and Squishy Wizard. She was fragile, shy, and physically weak, but was first choice for research and magic. Later she becomes powerful enough that she can use magic to make herself tough enough to beat up Buffy. She took an axe to the back and got right back up.
Of the Trio, Jonathan is the most magically adept.

Doctor Strange is a Kung-Fu Wizard, but he's also a physically-ordinary human being, so compared to heroes with super-strength or unbreakable skin, he's pretty darn squishy. As with Wiccan and the Scarlet Witch, he's prone to being laid out early by a blow a superhuman could shrug off, just to preserve the drama.

Touhou: All magicians are physically human (even the youkai ones). It's certainly the case for Alice. Marisa is fairly athletic, but it's unclear how much this actually helps. Patchouli might be the most notable example, though, as she is asthmatic, sickly and physically weak, but a phenomenal spellcaster when she doesn't lose her breath while reciting her spells. Byakuren, however, is a Kung-Fu Wizard (buffs are a wonderful thing). It's mentioned in Wild and Horned Hermit that magic users tend to use ingredients such as arsenic and mercury in their concoctions, and it's their continued use that ruins their health.
Likewise, due to being inherently weaker than humans in general, the stronger fairies come out as being a variation of this while lacking in the intelligence aspect, capable of fighting both humans and youkai alike with their abilities, occasionally even those of vastly higher power levels, but are at the mercy of whoever manages to physically apprehend them. Luckily, they get Resurrective Immortality for the inevitable situations where this occurs.

GURPS:
Anyone can purchase the Magery advantage and Spell skills quite freely; however, unless you have a lot of character points to build with, it's difficult to build a character who is both a powerful spellcaster and a mighty warrior.
3rd edition has a sort of built-in aversion; casting magic costs Fatigue, and Fatigue is a substat of Strength, so mages want to have a decent Strength.
4th edition bases Fatigue on Health instead; Strength now determines Hit Points. And Fatigue can now be raised independently of Health, so a Wizard can use Strength and Health as Dump Stats, freeing up points for magic spells and the like, at the cost of making himself squishier.

Aion follows this trope in an odd way. Sorcerers and Spiritmasters, who use offensive spells (and summoned monsters in the SM's case) are forced into wearing robes and having little HP in exchange for bending the universe to their will, and thankfully have some shield spells as protection. Clerics and Chanters (healing and buffing classes respectively) however, apparently don't spend as much time with the books, being allowed to wear chainmail armor and wield decent weaponry while beating things into submission without the use of offensive spells.

Looking for Group:
Lampshaded in strip #406. Hell, even Tim, the mentally challenged troll, calls Richard "Squishy". This running gag is amusing but inaccurate. Richard has proven himself in physical combat more than once. And being undead, he does not bleed or feel pain.
Benny, on the other hand, is a much straighter example since she has lost every physical fight she's been in (not counting the bar fight in her first appearance due to Early Installment Weirdness).

Lone Wolf:
Grey Star, the protagonist of the 4-book spin-off World of Lone Wolf, exemplifies this, especially compared to the extremely badass Psychic Knight of the main series. Although Grey Star gets the same basic stat rolls as Lone Wolf, he receives none of the healing powers, combat-enhancing disciplines, or special items, and is heavily penalized if he ever has to fight bare-handed or with a weapon other than his magic staff. Sure, he can use his magic to multiply the damage inflicted by the staff — but this cost precious Willpower points that are put to much better use casting spells. The best strategy to win those gamebooks is certainly to avoid combats like the plague — and in fact, Books 2, 3 and 4 can all be finished without any fights if you're lucky (not so much with Book 1, though).
Banedon too, in the Magnamund Companion adventure featuring him. He's a bit more adept with weapons than Grey Star, but the few opponents he can fight hand-to-hand are tough, even with the Status Buff spell "Vigour". In Shadow on the Sand, his Journeyman magic sure lay waste on enemies, but when forced in close combat against a Drakkar he's severely wounded and would be dead without Lone Wolf.

The Runepunk podcast series from RPGMP3 features a character called Kieron Hammerfall, an Andari Rune caster. Kieron is imbued with momentous arcane power, as well as the durability of a dry twig. He's a member of the Andari race, which means he's blessed with immortality (barring any unfortunate accidents — which, considering his virtually non-existent toughness, could involve being knocked over by a stiff breeze or something). Furthermore, Andari and technology don't mix.

Dhalsim counts as well having poor defense but some of the best range and special moves in the games to point of a Game-Breaker, averted In-Universe as Dhalsim tanks a punch Satsui no Hado Ryu in Street Fighter V.
F.A.N.G is a villainous example his poison powers are meant to keeps opponents at bay while his actual close quarters strength is pitiful. However his V-Trigger, Dokunomu puts a poisonous aura around him upping his defense greatly.

In Kingdom of Loathing, each class is aligned with one of the three stats, giving it a boost. Muscle increases your Hit Points, and Moxie increases your evasion chance. There is no defense given by high Mysticality though, so if you don't increase your other stats Saucerors and Pastamancers end up pretty squishy. While Saucerors gradually become less squishy be gaining access to powerful regeneration effects, Pastamancers don't have that luxury besides summoning certain Thralls to aid them defensively. The Avatar of Jarlsberg is a step up in both squishiness and wizardliness: their spells are always pretty damaging and can conjure up the best foods, but have limited healing and refuse to attack physically (due to Jarlsberg's crippling germophobia).

In The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit, Gandalf's portrayal subverts this; he often comes across as physically feeble due to his (apparent) age, but he's a rugged wanderer who can hold his own in battle and travel long distances on both horseback and foot. Indeed, he kicks serious ass with both his staff and his sword, to the point where he almost never uses his magic in a fight except against another supernatural being. This is of course mostly because the Wizards of Middle-earth aren't actually humans, but Maiar (the setting's equivalent to angels and demons). This subversion applies to the other Wizards too; Saruman isn't quite the swordmaster that Gandalf is, but he can still take a beating if his duel with Gandalf is any indication, while Radagast is able to fight off the Witch-King by just whacking him with his staff.

The titular character of Merlin fits this. He's the most powerful warlock in the world, but he's also skinny and physically weak and easily trounced when Arthur's using him as training practice. From Series 3 on, he inverts this; nowhere near Arthur's level, but skilled enough.

Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai: Out of all of Dai's team, Pop packs the most power but is the most vulnerable to a hit. Dai and Crocodine aren't human and can tank hits, Hyunkel with his armor has the highest defense of the team and Leona and Maam can heal. Mitigated when he becomes a Sage and learns healing spells.

Queen of All Oni:
Lung, Daolon Wong's former apprentice, is a powerful dark chi wizard, but is not that good at physical combat. As proven when Right curbstomps and kills him.
Jade, after her encounter with Lung, is reduced to this, as most of her physical strength has been burned away, forcing her to rely on her (increasingly impressive) magic skills.

Kingdom Hearts:
Donald Duck is a textbook example. Due to his utter lack of defense, hit points, and a way to replenish his magic points which forced him into attacking enemies physically, poor Donald seemed to die every time that a Heartless breathed in the same room as him. Fortunately, the sequel made him less of a glorified punching bag and more of a valuable party member... unless you're on Critical Mode, in which case his lack of either Second Chance or Once More means he'll be getting one-shotted on a regular basis while Goofy (and hopefully, Sora) will at least survive long enough to heal.
Aqua from Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep has the worst defenses, lowest HP and weakest physical attacks of the playable trio, but is by far the most formidable mage with exclusive access to several powerful spells.
Ansem, Seeker of Darkness is a played-with villainous example. While he doesn't have the lack-of-health-and/or-defense you typically see in characters of this trope, he still favors hit-and-run Black Magic and relies on his "Guardian" to do the up-close attacking for him. However, his One-Winged Angel form subverts this by giving him a physical weapon, though he only uses this at the end of the very first game.

The Enchantress is in the same boat. She's got a lot of magical power at her command but has no combat skills and has been beaten by other Asgardians easily. Compared to human beings she can take hits and barely feel them. This led to a rather amusing incident in Secret Wars, when, having previously easily defeated Rogue, she thought that another mortal woman was no match for her. Unfortunately for her, that mortal woman was She-Hulk. A No-Holds-Barred Beatdown ensued◊.

Octopath Traveler has Cyrus and Primrose, both of whom boasting strong elemental attack power for their spellwork (Cyrus has access to Fire, Ice, Lightning by default while Primrose casts Dark elemental spells by default). They also have pitifully low HP and physical attack status, and their physical defense is nothing to brag about, either.

Micaiah from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn is particularly noteworthy, as she is 1) the main character 2) in a game where mages are sub-par units 3) the leader of an army mostly made up of Fragile Speedster types, which makes for some... interesting strategy.

Dark Devotion has Nekosh, Keeper of the Books. He can mess you up with his fire magic and demonic scythe, but once he gets off his pulpit and comes within your reach, you’ll discover that he has very little health for a boss: you can kill him with just a few attacks. Of course, killing him is not the end of that fight…

The Controller and Defender archetypes in City of Heroes. They're "wizards" in that they possess a far greater range of powers than the more combat-oriented archetypes and have access to heals, buffs, debuffs and status effects that the others generally don't. They also have the joint-lowest hit points and virtually no defensive capabilities. The Blaster, Controller and Defender are, in fact, often collectively referred to as "Squishies" by the players of other archetypes (though the Blaster is more of a Glass Cannon).
In City Of Villains, the Corruptor, Dominator, and Mastermind fill this position — although the Corruptor overlaps with Glass Cannon, and the Mastermind is the best pet summoner and when used right is almost a Game-Breaker. The game in general is a bit less focused on party roles and the "balanced party" concept than usual, resulting in more aberrations to the norm. Powerset and build choices are significant to level of squishiness, and an occasional complaint with recruiting certain Defender subtypes is that their personal survival abilities are so good they'd rather be soloing.

In Sailor Moon, the magically strongest senshi, Saturn and Moon, are both rather unimpressive physically. Mercury as well, being the support "caster" of the bunch.

The Fantasy Trip plays this pretty straight. Wizards have to pay twice as many memory slots to learn non-magic skills (like how to swing a sword), and get penalized for wearing armor or carrying weapons (handwaved in-game by claiming that ferrous metals interfere with magic.)

Inverted in Coiling Dragon. Although Linley initially thinks that magi are weak, he is told that this is only true when they are compared to warriors of equal rank. In reality, as magi train, the magic accumulating in their body makes them stronger.

Jonan from Forging Divinity is, in stark contrast to the other protagonists, pretty much worthless in a direct fight. He makes up for this in his cunning and knowledge of sorcery.
