** Cell is taller than all of the heroes and physically imposing besides (in all of his forms). Super Buu is even bigger. However, this is averted by both Frieza (in his final form at least, his 2nd and 3rd forms are enormous) and Kid Buu being shorter than the heroes, despite being tremendous physical threats.
** The original [[InvertedTrope inversion]] was Vegeta. Goku is roughly 5'10 and very well-built, whereas [[TheNapoleon Vegeta]] is about half a foot shorter and initially looked pretty scrawny.

** As a general rule, if there are two forces involved and one of them has something huge - a Brute, Praetorian, YMIR mech, Geth Colossus or Atlas mech, just to name four - then the force with the huge thing is the bad guy.

Added DiffLines:

* As apex predators, the monsters of ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' are definitely large, with the smallest among them being six meters tall and the largest nearly four times that. Their size is directly proportional to the threat they pose, since they get a power and health boost every time they grow.

Added DiffLines:

* ComicBook/IronMan nemesis Titanium Man towers over our hero, in a colossal battlesuit that, DependingOnTheArtist, has been anywhere between 8 and 11 feet tall.

* Even if Film/JamesBond is tall (only DanielCraig is below 1.80 m) many times TheDragon is huge - best example is [[Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe Jaws]], but [[Film/{{Goldfinger}} Oddjob]], [[Film/TheLivingDaylights Necros]], and [[Film/TomorrowNeverDies Stamper]] also qualify.

** The Sequel has the same human sized Iron man vs. the Iron-monger like Whiplash.

** The Sequel ''Film/IronMan2'' has the same human sized Iron man Man (and War Machine) vs. the Iron-monger Iron-Monger like Whiplash.Whiplash.
* ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' has [[Comicbook/{{Ultron}} the title robot]], whose Prime form is 8-9 feet. This proved troublesome on-set: Elizabeth Olsen was instructed to look at the red balls hanging from antennae over James Spader as those would be Ultron's eyes, but [[EvilIsHammy Spader's intense performance]] made this really hard.

** ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' pushes Doomsday even further: while in the comics he's 8' tall, in the movie the Kryptonian beast is as massive as the Superman statue in Metropolis.



* In Film/{{Innerspace}} the villains have their own sub specifically designed to intercept and combat Tuck Pendleton's sub. The pod appears to be equal or less in total mass, yet it is taller and darker.

* ''Film/TheTerminator'' plays this straight, having the title character being played by the big and muscular Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger. However, the subsequent ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'' films with Arnold's character as a good guy (''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'', ''Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines'', and ''Film/TerminatorGenisys'') invert this by having the bad guys be smaller than him. The discrepancy which might otherwise result is avoided by having them be far more advanced Terminator models than his with more abilities.

* In the ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' franchise, if a card is considered magical, evil, dangerous, and/or cursed, odds are that the monster it summons is ''big''. (In fact, when Yugi first summoned Osiris in his duel against Bakura, Jonouchi yelled "It's the most humongous Duel Monster ever!") It was the same with the [[Manga/YuGiOhR Wicked Gods]], the [[Anime/YuGiOhGX Sacred Beasts]], and the [[Anime/YuGiOh5Ds Earthbound Gods]]. The Numbers in ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'' are a partial exception, as not all of them are big, but one of them, Number 9: DysonSphere, holds the current record for physically biggest monster in the anime, being the size of a small star.

* Justified in the various versions of ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'', as most of the Decepticons tend to favor larger military vehicles for their alt-modes as opposed to the smaller civilian vehicles favored by most of the Autobots.

*** ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' subverted this in its final season where Optimus Primal's Optimal Optimus form was much larger than Megatron. ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' played this trope straight in its first two season with Megatron being the same height as Optimus while being bulkier, [[spoiler: but subverted it in its third season when Optimus Prime was upgraded to be both taller and bulkier than Megatron.]]
*** Unicron takes this up to 11, as he's the size of a small planet.

Added DiffLines:

* In FutureCardBuddyfight, both BigBads fit this trope. In a game where the LimitedLoadout restricts you to monsters whose sizes sum to three, Azi Dahaka is size ''four.'' And when Yamigedou went OneWingedAngel, the resulting monster took up two cards.
