** ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'': The [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Elites]] and [[KillerSpaceMonkey Brutes]] (the Covenant's two main EliteMook species) respectively average at about eight and nine feet tall, while the [[TheWormThatWalks Hunters]] are twelve feet tall. By contrast, even the tallest of humanity's heavily-augmented Spartan {{Super Soldier}}s are only a little over seven feet tall.
*** Averted with the Covenant's [[SlaveMooks Grunts]], who are on average somewhat smaller than normal humans, though slightly stronger, while the [[HiredGuns Jackals/Skirmishers]] and [[InsectoidAliens Drones]] play with this; both species are on average somewhat taller than baseline humans, with the former also generally more agile and the latter stronger and more resilient, but both species are small, weak, and frail compared to the augmented and power-armored Spartan protagonists of the series, and the Jackal/Skirmishers are even more fragile than baseline humans due to their hollow bones. Also, the Covenant's main political leaders, the Prophets, average at about seven feet, but as a rule are frail and a bit hunchbacked due to their sedentary lifestyle.
*** The BigBad of ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}'', [[spoiler: the Ur-Didact]], is over 11.4 feet tall, as befitting [[spoiler:the former leader of the Forerunners' Warrior-Servants]]. Additionally, his main EliteMooks, the [[MechaMooks Promethean Knights]], average about ten feet tall. Most of the other mechanical Forerunner MechaMooks in the series are also pretty big, but, with the exception of the vehicle-sized Enforcers, are dwarfed by the Spartan protagonists.
** Halo's predecessor, ''{{Marathon}}'', featured the Pfhor, an organization of alien slavers and their slaves. Most Pfhor are slightly taller but thinner than humans, however their Hunters are much larger. Humans stand at about the abdomen of the average hunter, while the largest ones are over twice as tall as a human. Then there are the enormous Pfhor juggernauts, which are flying cybernetic tanks. Meanwhile, the S'pht, a species that the Pfhor enslaved, are relatively small. Averted with the largest creature in the Pfhor, the Drinniol, which, being a slave, bears no ill will towards its victims.
** ''VideoGame/HalfLife'': Alien Grunts are also around eight feet tall. Again, subverted by the Alien Slaves and Alien Controllers, who are as big or smaller than a human. Played straight again with Gargantuas and Manta Rays, but those are living tanks and living fighter-bombers respectively.
** VideoGame/{{Resistance}}: Chimera units are taller than normal humans.

* The alien monster from ''Film/ItConqueredTheWorld'' was originally conceived as [[{{Heavyworlder}} short and squat, due to the harsh gravity of its native planet]]. Actress Beverly Garland was unimpressed by the vertically-challenged villain -- approaching it within hearing of director Creator/RogerCorman she cried "So, you plan to take over the world do you? Take that!" and kicked it in the head. Corman therefore told the prop guy to do something to make it bigger and scarier. Well, [[{{Narm}} he made it bigger, anyway.]]

* Played with in ''{{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.

** Specifically ''averted'' in ''Film/StarTrekGenerations'', ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry'', ''Film/StarTrekIIITheSearchForSpock'', and ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan'' -- the first three were standard-issue Klingon birds-of-prey and the last was a stolen Federation ship that's pretty much the same as the Enterprise but in a different configuration (that makes it seem ''smaller;'' put the warp engines on the back ''underneath'' and you get the Reliant, roughly the same mass but more compact than the Enterprise.) in each case, the villains and their tactics are what make their vessels dangerous to the protagonists.

** 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.

* 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.
