* ''Twenty Million Miles to Earth'', which had effects by Creator/RayHarryhausen. To set up a confrontation between the alien Ymir and an elephant Harryhausen needed establishing shots of a real elephant with a zookeeper. A small actor in a zookeepers' uniform was used to make the live-action elephant look bigger than it really was, so that it matched the scale of the animated elephant used in the fight scene.

* ''Star Wars: [[RogueSquadron Rogue Leader]]'' plays this when inside the Death Star's reactor. The entire room is rigged to look far, far larger than it actually is through use of high-res textures, forced perspective, and slowing you down considerably. It looks amazing at first, but if you fly down toward the floor the whole illusion [[SpecialEffectsFailure falls through]] and you can see clearly that you're just moving slowly through an average-sized area.

* A minor example in ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' usually used to make Dean, played by the relatively short JensenAckles seem taller compared to his brother.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/{{Innerspace}}'', after Scrimshaw and Canker are shrunk 50%, there are a few scenes where they are seen with full-size actors. These shots were filmed using forced perspective. For the car scene, the rear of the car is actually twice as large as a normal car rear, and was about 20 feet away. During the scene half size hands and double-size heads were used. Using this method, the film makers didn't have to worry about compositing two separate shots in post production, so the shots could be completed quicker. Even in the final scene with the suitcase, the case was twice as large, but the hand that closes it was real, closer to the camera in sync with the closing.

Added DiffLines:

* A variation was used on ''Film/StandByMe'' when the boys are trying to outrun a train on a bridge. A telephoto lens was used to compress the depth of the shot and make the train seem like it was barreling in on them, when it was actually a safe distance away.

->'''Peter Griffin''': Oh, my God, is that... Are you holding up the whole Hollywood sign? \\
'''Derek Wilcox''': ''[Chuckles]'' No, no, no, no. The sign was way in the background. I was standing in the foreground going like this when Jillian took the picture, so by forced perspective, it looks like I'm holding up the whole sign.\\
'''Peter Griffin''': I don't believe you. I think you are a God. And I will die for you or kill others.

* ''Film/HellboyIITheGoldenArmy'' used such shots frequently. The alleys int he underground market were designed with the diminishing height trick to make them look longer, and the shot of the intricate "egg" opening in the elven prince's hand is actually a mechanical puppet the size of a trash can in a set of model fingertips, with the actor acting about ten feet further in the background.
