* WordofGod says that the sizes of characters (as well as objects) in the ''Literature/{{Redwall}}'' series depend on the reader's imagination. This could very well be an example for both forms of this trope.

Added DiffLines:

*** The very first episode pointed out the size differences as all the characters were getting used to their new beast modes: Cheetor runs with some real cheetahs--the same size as him--which suddenly freak out at the sight of Waspinator, who Cheetor quickly realizes is ''way'' too big to be a normal wasp and therefore must be a Transformer.

** As an example, badgers are the biggest creatures around ([[TheBigGuy the equivalent of seven- or eight-foot tall humans]]), small enough to live under tree roots yet simultaneously big enough to maintain a military base in an extinct volcano.

* Breeds of domesticated animal have been developed that differ drastically in size from either their wild ancestors, or most other breeds of their species. Notable examples of species with ''extremely'' large and small breeds include dogs (Great Danes to chihuahuas), horses (Belgians to minis), and cattle (Chianina to Dexters).

* [[TimCurry Drake,]] the main villain of ''WesternAnimation/ThePebbleAndThePenguin'', for some reason, unlike all of the other Adelie penguins in the film, is actually the same height as a human. Also, the leopard seal that constantly pursued both Hubie and Rocko throughout the entire film is actually the same size as a submarine!
** And the entire Adelie and Rockhopper penguins as a whole, who for some reason all have their approximate sizes reversed! (in real life, Rockhopper penguins were larger than Adelie penguins, something that was actually corrected in the later film ''WesternAnimation/HappyFeet''.)

* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', set as it is in a world filled with [[MadScientist Mad Scientists]] who are perfectly happy modifying all animals - including humans - has a number of examples:
** Füst is apparently a Jagerbear - Jagers are made by giving humans the jagerdraught, turning them into immortal [[SuperSoldier Super Soldiers]]. Drinking the draught has apparently made Füst into the [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20050606#.Vx-M_PkrLIU size of a small elephant.]]
** Mimmoths are a kind of miniature mammoth, created by a Spark at some unspecified time in the past, which are now a pest treated much as mice are in our world. They also seem to be a delicacy, with mention of chocolate-coated mimmoths, mimmoths-on-a-stick, and mimmoth pierogi.
** 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.
--> '''Susa:''' Doctor Quintus Varangius. ''Totally'' obsessed with ''size''.\\
'''Bang:''' Aren't they ''all?''

* ''VideoGame/MonkeyShines'' features Bonzo, an ape, as the main character. He's roughly the same size as all of the animal mooks in the game, which include bees, spiders, scorpions, ladybugs, caterpillars, fish, jellyfish, rats, bats, snails, birds, cockroaches, and turtles.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/{{Franklin}}'', the woodland animals are more or less their respective sizes and we have the accurately tiny Snail, but there are huge upright turtles with Franklin being as tall as Beaver and more than half the size of Bear. Also, bears are smaller than usual where Bear is practically the same height as Fox and the other animals.
