** This is the essence of [[RubberMan Luffy's]] [[SuperMode Gear Third]]. Although he hasn't turned into a full-sized giant as of yet, he can expand parts of his body to the point of outclassing regular giants - who themselves measure at least 200 feet.

* The plot for ''UG♥Ultimate Girls''. Three High School girls grow to 100 foot stature, then fight the monster of the week. Lather, rinse, repeat. However, subverting the MagicPants trope is the whole point of the show.

Episodes of this kind are quite likely to include a StockParody or {{Homage}} of King Kong: The 50-foot whatever [[ClimbingClimax will climb a tower]], often with a DamselInDistress in hand and airplanes buzzing like flies. Imitators often omit the DownerEnding where Film/KingKong falls to his death, though. See KingKongClimb for examples.

* A commercial for Pepto-Bismol had various kaiju and a 50-Foot Woman doing the "nausea, heartburn, indigestion" dance. Do we really want to consider the implications of giant beings with diarrhea?
* Lee's Dungarees in their "Don't flinch." campaign had the "90-foot-Babe" Natalia Adarvez walking through a city, stepping on a Taxi, ripping power lines, towards a high-rise (or so it seems for the normal-sized peeps) where she picks out the window of a nice young man (the size of her finger) and gives him her phone number. Written on a billboard. With a broom. He, wearing Lee's Dungarees, doesn't flinch.

** The Kaiju archetype uses exactly what it sounds like, {{Kaiju}} sized monsters based entirely on {{Godzilla}} characters, and as any idea of this would be, most of the monsters range from giant robots to massive fire lizards to three-headed lightning shooting monsters.

Added DiffLines:

* Most of the dragons in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' have true forms that are a few stories tall. Lucoa on the other hand is much, ''much'' larger (as in "several times bigger than a mountain" large), with even her head dwarfing Tohru's entire body.

Added DiffLines:

* ''The Bush Tucker Man'' mentions a story told in Northern Territory, Australia about a mosquito that was so big it landed at Darwin airport and was filled with 100 gallons of fuel before anyone realised it wasn't a mosquito. The host Les Hiddins is skeptical. "I've never seen a mosquito that big. Ninety gallons, but not a hundred."

* ''VideoGame/DungeonFighterOnline'' has a ShoutOut to the above in the form of Quattro Manus, currently the last boss on the last Special Dungeon (King's Library on the [[TitleOfTheDead Castle of the Dead]]), you fight him on top of a tower a la [[MarvelVsCapcom Onslaught]], complete with [[MegatonPunch attacks from the background]], [[SmashingSurvival a grab that it's lethal if you don't button mash enough]], [[DamageSpongeBoss and a obscene number of life bars]]. If you aren't prepared for this fight, you (or your party) WILL lose many [[OneUp Life Tokens]].

** From the ''Anime/YuGiOh anime'' comes the depictions of the Egyptian Gods Obelisk, Slifer, and Ra. By extension, Horahkty is probably fairly massive too, and Exodia is massive as well. Exodia Necross, Exxod Master of the Guard, Exodia Incarnate, and Exodius the Ultimate Forbidden Lord likely rival Exodia in imposing size.
** Since the Wicked Gods Dreadroot, Avatar, and Eraser are direct opposition to the Egyptian Gods, they're likely about the same imposing size. This may also be true for the Sacred Beasts Uria, Raviel, and Hamon.

** Since the The Wicked Gods Dreadroot, Avatar, and Eraser are direct opposition to the Egyptian Gods, so they're likely about the same imposing size. Since Avatar takes the form of the strongest monster on the field; it's only this is mimicking another example of this trope. This may is also be true for the Sacred Beasts Uria, Raviel, and Hamon.Hamon, and their fused form, Armityle.
** The Earthbound Immortals were the largest monsters in the franchise bar the Great Leviathan, matching skyscrapers in size. They're mainly massive animals based on the Nazca Lines.
** Thor and Loki are pretty large, but not to much bigger than the average example of this trope. Odin, on the other hand, is so big he towers over the horizon behind the city.
** Supreme King Z-ARC from ''ARC-V'' is around the size of the Earthbound Immortals - and his truly bafflingly insane wingspan and tail length add to this.



** The Alien archetype has Cosmic Horror Gangi'el and Cosmic Fortress Gol'gar, monsters clearly based on [[Creator/HPLoveCraft Lovecraftian]] design and depicted as large collections of tentacles and claws. Exactly how large they are isn't certain, but one of them ''is'' called a ''Fortress''
