** In ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'', the [[StateSec Titans]] are the ones who build the Psyco Gundam and the Psyco Gundam Mark II, both of which stand the height of a small skyscraper. Those mobile suits designed by [[BigBad Paptimus Scirocco]], while not as huge, still tend to be larger than average, with his final ride, the PMX-003 The O being a hulking LightningBruiser taller than any AEUG mobile suit and two or three times as wide.
** In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'' the [[TheJuggernaut Destroy Gundam]] is put into action by Blue Cosmos, the coalition of racist groups behind the Atlantic Federation. A [[CompositeCharacter combination]] of the aforementioned Big Zam and Psyco Gundam, the Destroy is a walking WeaponOfMassDestruction that burns its way across Eurasia before being halted in downtown Berlin.
** In ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'', the Devil Gundam is extremely large for a mobile suit, and is the principal antagonist of the series. Interestingly, it is largely immobile, so its lieutenants do most of the real fighting.
* In ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'', Kenshiro is roughly 6 feet tall and 220 lbs. [[BigBad Raoh]] is roughly a foot taller and a hundred pounds heavier but is at least realistically large unlike the assorted giants such as [[GiantMook Zeed]], [[FatBastard Mr. Heart]], [[KnifeNut Mad]] [[DrillSergeantNasty Sarge]], [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever Devil Rebirth]], and [[WhipItGood Uighur]]. [[GentleGiant Fudoh]] inverts this during his final battle with Raoh.
* Played with in ''Manga/{{Claymore}}''. The Youma are bigger than people; the [[SuperpoweredEvilSide awakened beings]] are even bigger(some being 100+ metres tall/long) with one exception, and yet the heroines are normal-sized, if taller and a lot thinner than average, women; any fashion model could pass for one with the right makeup and contacts. The tallest, Galatea, is pegged at 185cm officially.
** But the most evil/dangerous villains are smaller than them. [[BigBad Priscilla]] is [[PintsizedPowerhouse south of average for a Claymore in human form]] and [[HumanoidAbomination about 2m and with a shape that might pass for human if fully clothed and her horn sawed off]], awakened. [[spoiler: The Organization's men are all creepy runts in black.]]
* In ''Franchise/PrettyCure'', the Pretty Cure are teenagers, most of them are around 14, a few are younger or older. The villains are either adults or humanoid beings who are taller than average people or AttackOfThe50FootWhatever.
** Seiren from ''Anime/SuitePrettyCure'' is a black cat fairy, but she's taller than fairy mascot Hummy. Seiren's human form Ellen is as tall as the heroines Hibiki and Kanade. And Eas from ''Anime/FreshPrettyCure'' is as tall as Love, but smaller than HugeSchoolGirl Miki.
** Ira and Regina from ''Anime/DokiDokiPrettyCure'' are smaller than the heroines, unless you count Aguri's human form who is smaller than them.
* Discussed ''Manga/SgtFrog'', where Space Detective Kogoro (average human height) is about to fight Keroro (about two feet tall), but stops because he can't fight Keroro without looking like a huge bully. Keroro solves this by putting on a MobileSuitHuman to give them approximately equal size.
* 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.
* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', regular Titans are anywhere from 5 to 15 meters tall with the Colossal Titan dwarfing everyone at ''60 meters''.
* In ''Anime/FutureCardBuddyfight'', both [[BigBad Big Bads]] 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.

* Gregor Clegane from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', AKA "The Mountain that Rides", [[FanNickname known to some fans]] as "The Mountain that Rapes", possibly the worst ordinary human in the series (out of quite a lot of competition), and also the largest.

* Gregor Clegane from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', AKA "The Mountain that Rides", [[FanNickname known to some fans]] as "The Mountain that Rapes", possibly the worst ordinary human in the series (out of quite a lot of competition), and also the largest. For ''LiveActionTV/GameOfThrones'', they had to get one of the strongest men in the world to even get close to portraying him right, and George R. R. Martin plainly said no man in the world could reach his proportions due to blatant violation of the SquareCubeLaw.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': The Mountain is a character of such massive size that the 6'9" professional strongman portraying him in Season 4 is introduced via a low-angle shot to make him seem even bigger.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': George R.R. Martin has said that there isn't anyone in the world who could physically match the way The Mountain is described in the books, but they sure try hard to get it close. He is a character of such massive size that the 6'9" professional strongman portraying him in Season 4 is introduced via a low-angle shot to make him seem even bigger.bigger. For the curious, he was originally construed as being ''nearly 8 feet in height and around 420 pounds'' which aren't measurements a human could reach and be able to walk.

Aside from the villainous characters themselves being big, their tools and resources also tend to be bigger. If the hero has PoweredArmor, the villain has a HumongousMecha. If the good guys come from TheKingdom, the bad guys come from TheEmpire. If the hero has an average-sized CoolSword, the villain has a {{BFS}}. At the climax of a SpeculativeFiction work, the villain may go OneWingedAngel to increase his size and strength. In High School settings the local AlphaBitch tends to be taller than the CoolLoser heroine (and she usually wears heels, so she tends to look even taller). The list goes on and on.

* Even if Film/JamesBond is tall (only Creator/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. Scaramanga, the BigBad of ''Film/TheManWithTheGoldenGun'' is one of the only main villains in the franchise to be taller than Bond himself.

** Present in ''WorldOfWarcraft'' with dungeon and raid bosses. Anywhere from five to forty players need to be able to target and track their actions so the bosses are bigger. This ranges from bosses being twice as tall as normal (even if there something that's normally human sized) to behemoths so large they don't fit on the screen unless you're as far away as possible.

* Being an homage to ''Star Trek'', ''Series/TheOrville'' features the titular ship usually facing off against the much larger Krill destroyers and battlecruisers. While we do get a glimpse of one or two Union heavy cruisers (which are ''almost'' as big as Krill warships), they're never around to take on the bad guys.

* ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' always has its villains be a lot larger than Samus due to them being aliens and thus having a different builds compared to a standard human. [[VideoGame/MetroidPrimeTrilogy Dark Samus]] and [[VideoGame/MetroidFusion the SA-X]] are the notable exceptions to the rule since they are clones of Samus and thus they're the same size as her. When the SA-X goes OneWingedANgel, it becomes a lot bigger.
