* Tionishia from ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'' is an eight-foot-tall ogre girl who also happens to be the friendliest and most personable member of her team, despite being their primary muscle. There's even an entire chapter devoted to her "calming aura", which all but sucks the stress and/or anger out of anyone spending time with her.

In general Ogres, {{Oni}} (who are in general smaller), Trolls (who are bigger ''and'' brawnier), and Gigantes (literal giants that stand on average 10 meters/ 32 feet) are extremely docile and the Gagantes largely spend their days sitting around wearing rags while they wait for something to do.

Compare TheGrotesque. Contrast TheNapoleon and KillerRabbit. See also BruiserWithASoftCenter, for which being tough and badass is the default, and the sensitivity may be a [[HiddenDepths Hidden Depth]]. Not to be confused with the [[Music/GentleGiant British progressive rock band]].

* Bark the Polar Bear from ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' is the largest character in ''VideoGame/SonicTheFighters'', and one of the strongest. His official bios describes him as "blunt and quiet, but gentle, shy and with a kind heart". This went over the head of the [[ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog comic writers]], who [[AdaptationalVillainy wrote him and Bean as villains]].

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' gives us TeamDad Reiner Braun, who towers over his fellow trainees and is built like a linebacker. His HeterosexualLifePartner Bertolt Hoover may also count, being incredibly tall, noted to be TheQuietOne and a follower at heart. [[spoiler:Horribly subverted, when it turns out both are not only Titan Shifters sent to infiltrate the human ranks... but the two Titans responsible for breaching the Walls in the first place. And then double subverted, as it's revealed that neither of them actually [[TrappedInVillainy wanted]] to do it, and they're both struggling with crushing -- and in Reiner's case, [[SanitySlippage mind-breaking]] -- levels of guilt; and that their affection for their comrades was [[BecomingTheMask genuine]].]].

*** Choji himself counts, being a somewhat dim and very bottomless yet also extremely loyal boy who is [[IAmBigBoned NOT FAT, JUST BIG BONED!]] He still has room to physically grow even more, since he's just 16-17 right now.

In the sequel series ''Manga/{{Boruto}}'' he's shown pretty doting to his daughter Chocho.



* Inverted with [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Stitch]], short, destructive, and so doggone cute and fluffy to boot.
* Pumbaa from ''Disney/TheLionKing'', as well as Mufasa.
** Just [[BerserkButton don't call Pumbaa a pig]] or [[PapaWolf threaten Mufasa's son in front of him]].

* Edgar from ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'' is a gigantic bearded Spaniard with bigger arms than [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil5 Chris Redfield]]. He's also pleasant and soft-spoken, loves art and is in fact a painter, and wouldn't need to refer to his sensitive side as a side. He only breaks away from being possibly the second nicest character in the game when he's [[BerserkButton pissed]]. Fittingly, he has a bull motif going on.
** [[spoiler: Linda the lungfish turns out to be this way as well. It turns out her kidnapping of children was a result of mind control.]]

* Fishlegs Ingerman in ''WesternAnimation/DragonsRidersOfBerk'' is the biggest and chubbiest of the teen characters, but he's also by far the most tender and kindhearted, especially towards his dragon Meatlug. Nevertheless a lot of the characters in the setting are kindhearted big vikings, but the tallest of all is also the most innocent and gentle: Bucket.

** Zangief, too. Specially in his ending in ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'' where he aknowledges his young fans with quite the affection.
** Post-HeelFaceTurn Sagat (formerly a BloodKnight, for.. very complicated reasons) has some traits of this. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4nAhvZk6Vs The biggest proof is here.]]

* Acommunity-origin case in WorldOfTanks is the TOG II. The Land Ship is enormous, slow and not generally considered to be much good, competetively. However, the gargantuan size and huge hitpoint pool plus a good gun earn it some love as being interesting, and it has broadly been characterised as a massive KindHeartedSimpleton.
