* ''Film/TheJungleBook2016'' deliberately scales all its animals up to about 1.5 times, to make a bigger world for Mowgli to look small in. King Louie and Kaa are huge even beyond that, with Louie easily reaching the size of an elephant and Kaa's head being bigger than Mowgli's torso.

** Notably, early in the film ''Velociraptor'' is described as resembling a "six-foot turkey". The comparison to turkeys is rather interesting, considering that turkeys are the modern birds most comparable to ''Velociraptor'' in ''size''. Yes, the real thing was more of a [[ShapedLikeItself turkey-sized turkey]].

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''
** Ernie the Giant Chicken is a little taller than Peter Griffin. A normal-sized rooster would be dwarfed by Peter Griffin.

* ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'': Roger Rabbit looks a little large for a rabbit, and the weasels look awfully large for weasels. May be {{justified}} in-canon as toons are treated as a separate species with little to do with their mundane-animal counterparts. And in a weird in-universe example, Baby Herman's mother is depicted as [[TheFaceless nothing but legs]], which would mean that if she had a whole body (which, it turns out, she doesn't- she's actually a human actor on stilts), she'd be much larger than any of the real humans or other humanoid toons. Despite all the props being regular-sized, indicating that the character is genuinely supposed to be that huge, rather than Roger and Herman being downscaled.

** For a bad guy example, foxes are not portrayed as any larger or stronger than the rats and weasels, even though they should be much larger than the hares who routinely kick their asses.

* ''WesternAnimation/IceAge'':
** Rudy, the BigBad of ''WesternAnimation/IceAge3DawnOfTheDinosaurs'' is portrayed in the film as a Baryonyx that's twice the size of a TyrannosaurusRex! However, the T. rex sized ''Suchomimus'' may be a species of Baryonyx, as well as the fact that the 30-ish feet long Baryonyx we have isn't fully grown, may lend some credibility to Rudy's size.
** Ice Age fans however often seem to forget the fact that the dinosaurs encountered by the main characters are living millions of years after the Cretaceous and have obviously become larger than their ancestors, as Mamma Dino is (according to the creators of the film) twice as big as an actual T-Rex. Most other animals in the film are similarly scaled up, including Buck who is huge for a weasel.

** There seem to be Sparks that specialise in resizing - two of the constructs that work for Baron Wulfenbach are "lab sisters" [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20150615#.Vx-PYfkrLIU Susa and Gritha]]. One small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, one four or five times the size of a normal human.

* In the ''Literature/{{Spellsinger}}'' series, most animals that are smaller than humans are much larger in size, especially small rodents, shrews, humming birds, and the like. Animals who are substantially larger than humans in real life, like bears, typically are smaller, while animals that remained quadrupeds like cows, rhinos, and elephants are generally unchanged in size.
