* An entertaining example comes from the climax of ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'', when BigBad Gozer makes the Busters choose a form for the monster it will summon to destroy New York City. While the other Ghostbusters try to empty their minds, Ray tries to think of the most harmless thing he can imagine: the mascot for Stay-Puft Marshmallows. Which results in a giant, grinning, sailor-hat wearing humanoid monster made of marshmallows stomping through Manhattan.
** They turn it right around in the sequel, when the Ghostbusters themselves ''[[Awesome/{{Ghostbusters}} bring the freaking Statue of Liberty to life]]'' [[ThePowerOfRock using Jackie Wilson's "Higher and Higher"]], and use it to break into the art museum to stop Vigo the Carpathian from coming back to life.

* BiggerIsBetter



* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', when Envy transforms into his monster form against the Flame Alchemist, Roy Mustang mocks him:
-->"I can't believe you made yourself a bigger target. You really thought ''bigger'' would be ''better''?"



* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' has [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=129568 Giant Growth]], one of the most commonly reprinted cards of the game. The world of Naya from ''Shards of Alara'' is home to enormous creatures known as "gargantuans", which are worshiped by the local elves and humans.

** Spoofed in the (deliberately silly and not tournament-legal) ''Unglued'' expansion set with the [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?id=9780 B.F.M. (Big Furry Monster)]], a creature so big it doesn't even fit onto a single ''card''.

The world shard of Naya Naya, the home of Godsire, from ''Shards of Alara'' is home to enormous creatures known as "gargantuans", which are worshiped by the local elves and humans.humans. It has a "big creatures matter" mechanic, there was even one card that would [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=180620 win you the game if you had a 20-power creature after you untapped at the beginning of your turn]], [[MakeMymonsterGrow as well as speeding your creatures on a path to such a size]]. The Tarkirian clan known as the Temur Frontier has a similar effect, although it's tuned down to just 4 power instead of 5 and doesn't seem to consist largely of adding keywords to giant monsters.
** Even more with the release of ''Rise of the Eldrazi'', which feature [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=194908 some]] [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=220553 of]] [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=198171 the]] [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=194911 largest]] [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=193632 creatures]] [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=193452 EVER]] printed in the history of the game.
** [[PlayerArchetypes The "Timmy" demographic]] in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' is defined as caring first and foremost about massive creatures that can slam the opponent (or, in a broader sense, any spell with a huge, sweeping effect), and ''Magic'' sure has no shortage. The classic "biggest and baddest" is [[http://beta.gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=108920 Leviathan]]; other notables include the devastating [[http://beta.gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=43711 Dragon Tyrant]], the unspeakably large [[http://beta.gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=135250 Denizen of the Deep]], and the majestic [[http://beta.gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=175105 Godsire]]. The single biggest, baddest, most ''monstrous'' monster in the whole game, though? The dread goddess [[http://magiccards.info/rep/en/10.html Marit Lage]], who is so powerful she can't even be summoned by normal means.

* Shows up ''FanFic/PoniesAndDragons'' every so often:
** The "March of the Giants" game played by the Mane Six. Their characters even have a rampage through an evil pony baron's castle, literally crushing any opposition from the tiny Mooks with some lucky dice rolls. Applejack's character even (accidentally) kills said baron by [[AssKicksYou slipping on some ice and sitting on him,]] prompting her to quip this gem:
--> ''[[BondOneLiner "Well, at least that's one bad guy who'll never be a pain in the rear again!"]]''
** The Cutie Mark Crusaders (and some friends) get in on the action with a game of "King of Manehatten", where they play various Kaiju battling to conquer the city.[[note]] A ShoutOut to the real board game ''King Of Tokyo''[[/note]]
** Later, we get an instance ''outside'' of a game with Queen Supia: a titanic Neighponese Changeling Queen resembling a Japanese hornet. She delivers a ''terrifying'' TheReasonYouSuckSpeech that leaves the normally arrogant Chrysalis a trembling wreck.
** Then there was the time where there was a fight for Spike's love between a greed-grown Ember, Mina, and Rarity (Who had been turned into a dragon.)
