* Just about any Zentradi on ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' after the original series. Post-2009 humanity typically has [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight no reaction to seeing a tall giant walking around]].
** Especially shown in ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', seeing as the majority of Zentradi tend to be average people while having normal-sized people look like dolls next to them. A specific example being Alto and Sheryl hanging out with Klan, while having to be on a third story just to talk to face to face.

** Moss from the prequel, ''GingaNagareboshiGin'', definitely qualifies. Despite his massive size (being an English Mastiff and all), he's extremely gentle towards the puppy Chibi ([[spoiler:Tesshin]]) and treats him like a second son.

** Colossus is also on the good guys' side. ''Film/{{Deadpool}}'' in particular plays up both the "gentle" and "giant" sides of the equation.

** Brienne of Tarth stands at roughly 6'6" and a lean 250-300 lbs, and has a wide, keg-shaped head, a barrel chest with thick, rippling pecs instead of teats, shoulders so wide and heavy with muscle that they are "hunched" under their own weight, a bulging bull neck, and hands and feet so enormous they are comparable to [[World'sStrongestManGregor Clegane's]] in size and shape. She's also one of the sweetest, most kind-hearted characters in the series, unswervingly loyal, and truly lives up to the ideals of knighthood despite not actually being a knight.
