* ''VideoGame/{{Rift}}'': A male bahmi (the towering [[FiveRaces stouts]] of the Defiant faction) on a vaiyuu (somewhere between a gazelle and an ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Oviraptor]]''). Hard to decide to whether to laugh or worry that the mount is about to collapse.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/HeroesOfTheStorm'' occasionally has this case, especially early on before they rework how some characters ride mounts. All mounts are about the same size regardless of who rides them, so it could get pretty comical to see someone the size of [[BigRedDevil Diablo]] riding a horse meant for human. Hilariously averted with Cho'Gall, a humongous two-headed ogre, who instead carries their horse instead of riding it.

* While most champions in ''VideoGame/{{Paladins}} are around the right size to ride horses, Front Line champions are generally [[TheBigGuy so large]] that they make the horses look tiny in comparison.

** Inverted for small champions, such as Pip and Willo, who have to ride standing up and hovering respectively just so they can see where they're going.

* 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).
