* Inverted in ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/6359014 All is Calm, All is Bright]]'' when Jonathan Kent meets Bruce Wayne for the first time.
--> "He’s taller than I thought he’d be. You see guys like that on TV all the time, you think they’re gonna be smaller when you finally meet him. Not Bruce. He actually looks bigger.”

** Meg tells John that she expected him to be taller when she meets him. Seeing as she had a lot of FoeYay with Sam in her previous appearances, he probably set the bar too high.

* Used in ''Anime/KirbyOfTheStars''. When the residents of Pop Star learn that a mighty Star Warrior is coming, Tiff pictures a handsome, sword-wielding hero vaguely similar to [[FireEmblem Roy]]. Instead, she gets... [[KidHero Kirby.]]
** Used again when the [=NightMare=] Enterprises guy that sells Dedede the monsters is seen and turns out to have the same legless, stumpy feet as everybody else, despite looking as if he'd be humanoid and most likely really 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").

* In a famous anecdote AlexanderTheGreat was said to have visited the Persian harem shortly after the Battle of Issos alongside his dearest friend and probable lover, Hephaistion. The vanquished Darius' mother, Sisygambis was said to have begged for her life not from Alexander but from Hephaistion, mistaking him for the king, since Alexander was much smaller, and from all accounts younger looking and less intimidating than Hephaistion. When she realized her mistake, Alexander corrected her by saying " You weren't wrong. He is Alexander too."

* Aang, from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. Supposedly a 112-year-old master of all elements. He's really a 12-year-old kid who likes penguin sledding. This is commented on by Zuko the first time they come face to face:

* In the Hong Kong film ''Film/DuelToTheDeath'', legendary swordsman Ching Wan passes through a city and sees an artist drawing a portrait of what the artist imagines Ching Wan looks like. When Ching Wan tells the artist that the portrait looks nothing like the real thing, (without revealing who he is) the artist responds by going on about all the attributes the portrait has and declares that ''of course'' a warrior like Ching Wan would look exactly like the portrait.
