A short person who feels inferior because of their size. They tend to take it out on other people and thrive on power trips. Shouting at others, especially when they are in a position of power, is common. Side affects include short temper, power trips/power-hungriness, anger issues, and often a bad sense of humor.
Mr. Weissman (Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School) has the biggest Napoleon Complex ever...well, almost. He's the perfect example. Ask any of his students.

The measure of psychological driven overcompensation for weakness in key areas, used traditionally as tongue-in-cheek reference to small statue or laughable genital areas as fuel for Napoleon's war lust. Currently applies to overly defensive men who treat women in the workplace in a sexist manner because they fantasize about a non-coed existence telling themselves technology is a male dominated industry thus excusable behavior. Applies to most devops professionals who bring beer instead of talent and usually wear feminist t-shirts for irony and gaslighting while namedropping and mansplaining just about everything.

Is reference to an inferiority complex that manifests as an ego problem.
"All that vlogger is really doing is making fun of mentally handicapped people and acting like Rick from Rick and Morty to hide his insecurities and Napoleon Complex."

"Digital Transformation taking credit for people using the internet during a global pandemic is a prime example of a deeply rooted Napoleon Complex."

A term based in prejudice and discrimination, that has been proven by science and psychology to be a myth and a stereotype as tall men are as likely to exhibit many, if not all, of the same traits. The name is also a misnomer because Napoleon was actually of average to above average height for his time.
People that use the term Napoleon Complex suffer from heightism.
