** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' has Yunobo, who like all Gorons is twice as tall and wide as Link but is a CowardlyLion who must be actively guided in his and Link's battle against Vah Rudania (in contrast to the other {{Guest Star Party Member}}s who are far more proactive in fighting the Divine Beasts), and Hestu, who has the same gentle and childlike personality as all the other Koroks despite being abnormally large for one.

The Zora also have two characters, Prince Sidon and King Dorephan, who are twice and ten times as big as Link respectively but are two of the nicest characters in the game.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Hodor, the gigantic, simple-minded servant who is scared of thunder and unable to defend himself unless he is controlled by Bran.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Hodor, the gigantic, simple-minded servant who is scared of thunder and unable to defend himself unless he is controlled by Bran. This was probably the reason he was chosen to carry Bran around. Also, despite finding himself in increasingly dangerous circumstances, he continually refuses to hurt anyone, and was extremely reluctant to take one of Sam's dragonglass knives and only did so on Bran's insistence. In "Oathkeeper", he can't bring himself to fight back against the Night's Watch mutineers. In "The First of his Name", he is utterly horrified after being forced via warging to kill Locke. In "The Children", he can't bring himself to fight back against ''wights''. However, in "Home", it is shown that back when he was Wylis, he was eager to train and spar with the other children, but Old Nan scolded him and told him not to participate in foolishness.

* Marcus Roddy of ''Roleplay/SurvivalOfTheFittest'' - he is absolutely massive, yet wouldn't hurt a fly. However, due to various exceptions, it's easier to say that when dealing with very large characters in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'', roughly half are subversions of this trope, and the other half are played straight. Vesa Turunen started as straddling the border between playing this straight and subverting it, but eventually turned into a BloodKnight and DeathSeeker.

* Claude from ''ShiningForce 2'' is a golem that served the ancients even before you get the chance to add him to your party, the turtle pet you can get can also evolve into a "monster" that's actually kind and helpful... and has a [[GameBreaker gamebreaking]] fire-breath attack.

** Gonta Gokuhara from ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3'' comes off as intimidating at first (and can be quite scary when angry), but in reality he's very friendly, if not rather gullible and naive. Since he's been disconnected from civilization up until high school, he tries to make himself a "perfect gentleman" so he can fit in better.

* Sea Serpents described in ''Literature/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem'' can grow up to 100 feet long(to a Blue Whale's 98) but there is no record of them ever harming a person, or in the author's opinion, no credible record.
