* In the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' cartoons featuring Daffy Duck and Porky Pig as Western lawmen, scrawny Daffy rode a glorious steed, but portly Porky rode a diminutive burro that looked as though he couldn't carry so much as a heavy quilt. Their nemesis, outlaw Nasty Canasta, could also be spotted riding a horse that's much, much too small for his enormous figure.

* An odd example born of GameplayAndStorySegregation: some very small Franchise/{{Pokemon}} can be taught the [=HMs=] Fly and Surf, then be used as flying and swimming mounts. Which leads to some... interesting imagery. Generation III onward ignores the visual ramifications of this trope: when used, Fly and Surf are shown as generic large birds and whales (the former resembling Swellow, the latter Wailmer) carrying the player, with the actual specific {{mon}} not shown.

Gen VI shows specific ones like Lapras with their full models, but most use the generic models. Gen VII finally averts it by replacing [=HMs=] with Ride Pokémon, which are all specific species and reasonably sized compared to the player.

* ''Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy1'', on one of its narrative asides, mentions that back when their home planet was still inhabitable, the Vogons would ride a sort of gazelle-like creatures for entertainment. The Vogons are huge, monstrous things and the gazelles were small and sleek, meaning that sitting on one would break its back and kill it... but the Vogons sat on them anyway (not surprisingly, since they're supposed to represent everything daft and stubborn about humankind).

** In the cancelled spinoff ''Donkey Kong Racing'', this was true of many of the mounts, since you could ride on absolutely tiny versions of Rambi and enemies like Zingers. To see Taj (an absolutely massive blue elephant genie) riding a bee looks almost ridiculous. See [[http://www.mariowiki.com/Donkey_Kong_Racing here]].

Added DiffLines:

* Downplayed in ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' in "Frontierland," where Sam rides off at one point to go get help. It's not a particularly large difference - and the mount is a fair size - but Sam is played by the 6'4" Jared Padalecki, so he's about as big as his ride.
