* Apache Chief from ''WesternAnimation/SuperFriends''. And Giganta, his arch-enemy. And, if you count ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', Long Shadow from the Ultimen.

** Also from ''SuperFriends'' is the episode "The Giants of Doom". Guess what happens to Bizarro, Sinestro, Captain Cold, and Toyman in that one.

*** You don't really get the sense of scale until you see Breetai and his minions (none of whom are wearing their PoweredArmor) fighting against Hikaru and Max... while the latter two still in their Valkyries.

* ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'': The point of the HumongousMecha is that the Earth forces knew the aliens coming to claim the SDF-1 would fall under this trope, and built them so they could fight them at their scale. ** You don't really get the sense of scale until you see Breetai fighting against Rick and Max... while they're still in their Valkyries. *** ... and he's ''still'' taller than them! Breetai was a ''big'' Zentran, though (if the average Zentran warrior's 30ft. is equivalent to a 6' human, Breetai's easily 6'7" to 7' proportionally); most other Zentron and Maltron are as big or slightly smaller than a full Batroid-form Valkyrie. * Further to the above, in the second TV sequel to SDF Macross, ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', the trope is gleefully subverted as the Zentraedi have become part of accepted human society... and many of them still spend most of their times as 10-meter-tall people. Who still do simple stuff like farming. A highlight is two of the main characters hanging out with a Zentraedi support character at a mixed-size mall... and in order to be at eye-level with her, the mains are on a ''third-story balcony''. ** Though this seems to be rare. Macross 7 had no full size Zentraedi other than Exedol, and the Zentraedi exclusive Macross 5 fleet had none either. Zentraedi living at full size is apparently so rare that even Mylene Jenius, half Zentraedi herself, had never met one and was shocked to do so. *** There's also Mylene's sister Emilia, who must have macronised herself only recently, since she was not only born human-sized, but Mylene was surprised to see her at that size when they met up again. *** Which makes sense since being probably dozens of times a normal humans mass they'd use dozens of times a normal humans resources in food, air, and space rather valuable commodities in a self contained environment like say... a ''space ship''. (let's not even get into who thought 50 foot tall astronauts was a good idea to begin with...) *** Background material also indicates that full-sized Zentraedi are not permitted to set foot on Earth after the first series. Micronized Zentraedi are fine, but not giants. Apparently Earth got fed up with Zentraedi revolts after a while and wanted an easier time of keeping dissidents under control.

* The little-remembered Japanese monster movie from the makers of ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'', ''Film/FrankensteinConquersTheWorld'', featured a child who survives the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, finds and eats the irradiated heart of Frankenstein's monster, and turns into a giant wild-man who fights a giant lizard-beast.
