* The reason [[http://pics-for-fun.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/huge-grasshopper-attackes-the-town.jpg this image]] has been passed around the Internet a few times is due to this trope making a relatively large grasshopper appear to be a giant attacking the town.

* In the ''Disney/DonaldDuck war short ''Home Defense'', Donald's nephews are able to convince him that they're being attacked... by parachuting gingerbread men. Later in the short, a bee does a similar (but unintentional) dupe job.

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited''. In "Fearful Symmetry", Professor Hamilton opens a door to reveal the torture device in Supergirl's dreams, a huge tank-like KillerRobot! It trundles towards her and is revealed to be a surgical robot that only comes up to her knees.

knees. This is used to show that Supergirl's nightmares are apparently just a stress reaction to having been injured and operated on in a previous episode. [[ProperlyParanoid The truth however is quite different.]]

* A dramatic (and ''extremely'' suspenseful) example appears in ''Film/RoadToPerdition'': Michael Sullivan, Sr.'s son Michael Jr. is returning to his house, just as his mother and brother are fatally shot by Connor Rooney (Michael Sr. has just survived an attempted ambush set up by Connor at a speakeasy and is rushing home at the time). Michael Jr. approaches the front door just as Connor comes down the front steps and takes off his handkerchief. It appears that Connor is staring directly at Michael Jr. through the door's window, but it's quickly revealed that he's looking at his own reflection. Once Michael Jr. realizes this, he has time to hide before Connor leaves the house.

* It's been argued that reports of big cats roaming parts of the English countryside, the most famous being the "Beast of Bodmin", may just be normal-sized feral cats that look farther away than they really are.

* The ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' episode from which the page quote is taken. Marzipan is just explaining an art technique, but when a [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever giant Bubs]] turns up immediately after, she says the same thing about his foot.

* Used ''extensively'' at Disneyland. A few other examples:
** Cinderella's Castle has the stones, windows, etc. get smaller as they go up, so if you reasonably assume they're actually the same size, the castle appears significantly taller than it actually is.
** The buildings on Main Street have facades making them appear (mostly) to be three stories tall; behind the facade, the upper floor (singular) is about the same height as the first floor.
** Also on Main Street: standing at the train station looking towards the hub, Main Street seems to be easily two or three blocks long and the Castle at the far end must be ''huge''. Standing at the hub looking towards the train station, it looks like one short block at most.
** It's easy to see that the buildings/trees/whatever right on the banks of the Storybook Land Canal Boats are miniatures and not full size (especially when a real duck which in scale appears to be about fifteen feet tall is waddling around), but set pieces which are further away from the canal have the scale decrease as they get taller/further away to make them seem larger than they really are even so.

* In the WesternAnimation/BugsBunny cartoon "The Unruly Hare", Bugs screws with surveyor Elmer by sticking things in front of his transit (the device surveyors use to measure distances). First he holds up some magazine pin-ups, which Elmer {{wolf whistle}}s at, then smacks his own lips near the lens, which is when Elmer reaches out for a kiss. Later, Bugs holds up a lit match so that Elmer thinks the forest is on fire.
