* 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).

* SpartacusBloodAndSand has Agron (played by 6'2 actor Dan Feuerriegel) and Nasir (Played by 5'6 actor Pana Hena Taylor) although they were ''way'' more than [[HeterosexualLifePartners HoYay]]
* OnlyFoolsAndHorses has [[LovableRogue Del Boy]], who is at least a head shorter than his younger half-brother [[OnlySaneMan Rodney]]. In a making of book, series creator John Sullivan states that he is grateful for this trope otherwise Del's constant put-downs towards Rodney would have seemed much more like bullying.
