Will he dare leave the safety of the woods to save his friend?
Will he sparkle in the sunlight?

So many questions!

HR: The business bits would still be behind the cloth from this angle... but yeah, that would be an uncomfortable sight nonetheless!

Chase: The white dragon would save the day, would save all the days! But unlike trolls, dragons love sunlight, and he doesn't want to move from there...

Dragin: Maybe fairies can lift five times their own weight like ants! In which case, he could probably move a troll's hand. Maybe even forearm!
Well, if he had two legs. I'm not sure he can balance that kind of load on one leg.

Actually... lets do maths, just for fun!
Lets take a 1.60m, 60kg human that can lift exactly its own weight.
And an identically proportionned fairy that is 40cm tall. Fairies should be leaner since they need to be light to fly, and their wing structure must weight something too, but lets pretend it balances for now.

Strength is determined by muscles' cross section area, so it scales by the square. The fairy is 4 times shorter than the human, so the weight it can lift is:
60kg/4² = 3.75kg

Weight, on the other hand, is proportional to volume. So it scales by the cube. The same fairy weights:
60kg/4³ = 0.94kg

And if you paid attention, we don't even need to divide one number by the other to know how many times its own weight a fairy can lift, it's the same number the height was scaled by: that hypothetical fairy would lift 4 times its weight.
(And if you ever worried about someone using an enlarging machine to create an army of giant ants to take over the world, don't worry, giant ants wouldn't be able to walk.)
