* ''{{Corum}}'': Michael Moorcock's Corum is a member of a race called the Vadhagh, who are more advanced culturally than humans but, on the scale of the FiveRaces, fall well within the range of "High Men." He still finds that Vadhagh in general, and Corum personally in particular, are very ShroudedInMyth and are believed to be as powerful as demigods. King Mannach even tells Corum that "I had expected to meet a being at least nine feet tall!"

* It is not uncommon to make movie actors (especially in male lead roles) look taller by tricks like shooting only head on or [[HitlerCam from below]], pairing them with shorter costars, have them [[ScullyBox stand on boxes]], or even use downsized sets. A few famous actors that were or are a lot shorter in real life than most people realize(d) are Creator/HumphreyBogart, Creator/RobertDeNiro, Creator/SylvesterStallone (real height about 5'9"), Boris Karloff (5'11"), Creator/MelGibson (5'9"), Creator/TomCruise (5'7"), Creator/ChuckNorris (5'8"), Creator/RobertDowneyJr (5'8"), Creator/JoshHutcherson (5'6"), Creator/ZacEfron (5'8"), Creator/LucyLiu (5'3"), Creator/DanielRadcliffe (5'5") and Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger (whose height is officially given as 6'2", but probably is less than 6'1").

* Edward gets hit with this a lot in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3532730/10/Returning-Echoes Returning Echoes]]'' but for completely different reasons than he does in canon; firstly, because no one [[ReportsOfMyDeathWereGreatlyExaggerated expects him to be alive]], and second, due to Alphonse doing some miscalculations with alchemy, [[GenderBender he is now a she]].
