Sometimes I am very small
But sometimes even tall
My name is sometimes spoken with a humans fighter name
but I am not a human at all
you can throw me but not If I am too heavy
And even if I'm very light I cannot walk away
Once I was a part of a union
But now I am a one-man-Army seeking for a revolution
I was cut and separated from my Family
But you can pick your family and climb on me

I hope this not too heavy for you ;)

EDIT: I think now it's a little bit easier and more precise ;)

    $\begingroup$ I am sure these clues all perfectly fit what you're thinking, but they fit many other things as well. For example, a ball can be thrown unless it's too heavy, it can't walk, and it's a last name so John Ball would meet the name clue. The same is true of rock, stick, and many other inanimate objects that come in different sizes. You need some sort of confirmer clue that would ONLY apply to the correct answer. $\endgroup$ – Kate Gregory Mar 6 '17 at 13:53

  • $\begingroup$ okay. Have done it a lot easier. The third line is the most important :D $\endgroup$ – Snickbrack Mar 6 '17 at 14:33
  • $\begingroup$ That basically gives it away now.. You could figure it out with the first 4 lines $\endgroup$ – n_plum Mar 6 '17 at 14:44

    $\begingroup$ @Snickbrack I think there are many better ways to clue a rock. :) Anyway, its solved. Cheers! :) $\endgroup$ – Techidiot Mar 6 '17 at 14:48

With the edit to the puzzle, I'm thinking

Rock

Sometimes I am very small
But sometimes even tall

Rocks come in all shapes and sizes

My name is sometimes spoken with a humans fighter name
but I am not a human at all

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. He's also an actor, which is what the clue was originally.

you can throw me but not If I am too heavy
And even if I'm very light I cannot walk away

You can throw rocks, and rocks can't move by themselves

Once I was a part of a union

Rocks were once part of bigger rocks.

But now I am a one-man-Army seeking for a revolution

Violent protestors (i.e. during revolutions) will throw rocks

I was cut and separated from my Family

Like I said, rocks were once part of bigger rocks

But you can pick your family and climb on me

Rock-climbing

This could be a little broad but I would go for a try and say...

Are you

A Tree

Sometimes I am very small
But sometimes even tall

Some trees are small while some are tall.

My name is sometimes spoken with a humans name
but I am not a human at all

Surnames which are spoken with human's name form a family tree. Also, Woods which can be connected with Humans name. Also, there are people with Surname as Tree e.g. David Tree

you can throw me but not If I am too heavy
And even if I'm very light I cannot walk away

You can throw a tree by lifting it if its not heavy. Also, a tree can't walk.

Once I was a part of a union
But now I am a one-man-Army seeking for a revolution

Union is referring to forest or a group of trees. But, due to industrialization, the forests are reducing and hence the number of trees as well. Green revolution is for saving the trees.

I was cut and separated from my Family

A tree separated from forest.

But you can pick your family and climb on me

Family tree probably.

  • $\begingroup$ This is what I thought of.. I think he could have done without the last two lines, saying cut and referring to families again makes it seem super obvious, but the union/revolution bit helps make it specific. $\endgroup$ – n_plum Mar 6 '17 at 14:22

    $\begingroup$ Got there just before me. Also: "Ash" and "Olive" are given names as well as species of tree. $\endgroup$ – F1Krazy Mar 6 '17 at 14:23
  • $\begingroup$ This could also be an answer to my riddle but it isn't. Have commented on my post. $\endgroup$ – Snickbrack Mar 6 '17 at 14:34
  • $\begingroup$ @Snickbrack I can easily find an actor name containing word Tree :) $\endgroup$ – Techidiot Mar 6 '17 at 14:38
  • $\begingroup$ okay, now it should be clear... $\endgroup$ – Snickbrack Mar 6 '17 at 14:41
