Added DiffLines:

* Violet, Dilys, Alice, and Chell from the FurryWebcomic ''Webcomic/ScalieSchoolie'' tower over their classmates. While Dilys, Alice, and Chell are respectively a crocodile, alligator, and snapping turtle, and thus naturally much larger the others' animal versions, Violet the bush viper seems to be just naturally tall, especially since the other bush vipers in the cast are much shorter than her.

** Sweden is a HUGE BigGuy (he's roughly the same height as Russia, who's already 182 cm tall) with a DeathGlare constantly plastered on his face. However, several strips (specially, the "5 years anniversary" one) show that he's got several traits of the Huge Schoolgirl, personality wise: homely, gentle, reluctant to fight openly if he can help it, and even shy sometimes.
--> '''Sweden''': I wanna say all kinds of nice things... but... (HUGE BLUSH)... 'm embarr'ssed!
--> '''Finland''': Hey! Su! Whoa, are you okay?!

* Series/{{Miranda}} Hart became a comedienne to capitalise on her height (6"1') and general air of apologetic awkwardness. Her self-titled TV show revolves around this, with lovely visual gags like her mother being played by the petite Patricia Hodge and her best friend being only just over five feet tall.

This installs an enormous physical complex on the character, despite the near [[GenericCuteness guarantee she'll still be quite pretty]]. Also usually coincides with being the most pectorally developed character. A character who comes to terms with their appearance can become beautiful with enough self-esteem. Without that self-esteem, though, you can wind up with an oversized ShrinkingViolet... a Weeping Willow, if you will.

A strangely specific aspect of this trope is the actual ''measurement'', usually 170 centimeters tall (about 5'7"). While this can seem like less of a big deal depending on what country you're from -- the average height for American women ranges from 5'3" to 5'5", using numbers based on self-reported surveys (which contain a lot of heights with shoes on reported), although most medical journals put the average American woman's height at 161 cm or about 5'3", making this trope make more sense. But judging by how many women wear heels, and the dissonance between surveys and medical journals, it seems that tall women are actually seen as desirable -- this measurement is a huge deal in Japan, where the average female height is ''158 cm'' (roughly 5'2"), although some medical journals list it as being as short as 156 cm or 5'1".
