* Creator/GeneSiskel was tall and skinny; Creator/RogerEbert was short and fat, and they spent their personal and professional lives as VitriolicBestBuds. Naturally, this was played up in the marketing for their ''Series/SiskelAndEbert'' show.

Added DiffLines:

* The Funk Brothers, Bobby and Kelly, in ''Manga/OnePiece'', is an unusual variant on this trope: The smaller Kelly is smarter and wiser, and the much bigger Bobby has incredible strength (to where blades snap when swung against his back) but can't strategize the way Kelly can. However, Bobby is an ActualPacifist who is afraid to fight. Instead, Kelly developed a sort of GrandTheftMe power where he [[BigDumbBody takes over Bobby and does the fighting as him]].

Added DiffLines:

* Most recurring and regular human characters in ''Series/{{Pokemon}}'' can be considered a Big Guy when using whatever Pokemon he or she is most associated with. Ash with Pikachu naturally, Gary with Umbreon, and Brock with Croagunk. There are a few exception, however,like when Brock uses Onyx, which is ''much'' larger than he is.

** Pretty much every group after them that showed up together would be this. Though the Big Guy wasn't always DumbMuscle he was always in a supplementary role, usually an enforcer, bodyguard or sidekick. The Little Guy would be the brains and the leader, and would often be revealed to actually be stronger since MusclesAreMeaningless in this series.

* The ''Franchise/StarWars'' movies introduce three such duos: C-3PO and R2-D2, Han Solo and Chewbacca, and Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine. It's worth noting that C-3PO, Solo, and Palpatine are both around average human height (and Han is actually a few inches ''above'' average). C-3PO is only the big guy compared to R2-D2, a 3'7" (109 cm) TinCanRobot. Solo and Palpatine are only the little guys compared to Chewie and Vader, who are respectively 7'6" (228 cm) and 6'8" (203 cm).
