* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'': A large part of Makoto Kino's (Sailor Jupiter; Lita in the english and latin american dubs of the '90s anime) character, especially early on, is the various misunderstandings and insecurities caused by her appearance: when she transfers to Juuban Municipal Junior High, her height (168cm) means that [[TransferStudentUniforms there are no uniforms her size]]; add that she has the splitting image of a delinquent (curly hair, her old uniform's long skirt and shoe style), is rumored to have been transfered for fighting and that she ''is'' genuinely very strong and {{badass}} (even before getting her powers), and she's not very popular at first. Part of her CharacterDevelopment is to be secure of her looks and femenine attributes, along with her more masculine ones (Depending on the adaptation, she ranges from TomboyWithAGirlyStreak to GirlyBruiser). From later in the series, ButchLesbian Haruka is quite tall, but she doesn't care (nor does anyone else); Taiki is also quite tall, but seeing how she's an alien posing as a student and has been traveling the galaxy for who-knows-how-long, might not quite count.

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 pectorially 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.

* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'': Makoto's (Lita, in TheNineties English dub of the [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]]) height (168cm) was one of several explanations for her obsessive need to appear feminine (in the English dub, Lita wasn't feared because she was tall. She was feared because of rumors that she's a bully). She seems not to notice that half of the outer senshi and most of the Starlights [[TheArtifact are actually taller than she is]] [[VagueAge despite not actually being much older]]. ''WebVideo/SailorMoonAbridged'' has a different take on this, where Jupiter is blatantly voiced as if being [[{{Crossdresser}} a guy in drag]], with JiveTurkey overtones.

* Yuu Kashima of ''Manga/GekkanShoujoNozakiKun'' is 174cm tall (about 5'8") and hails as the [[PrinceCharming Prince]] of the school and [[ChickMagnet object of desire]] for a good chunk of her [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer female classmates]]. Bonus points for the fact she's also half-a-head taller than her favorite male upperclassman Masayuki Hori, and sometimes teases him about it. She's one of the few examples of this trope who actively ''revels'' in her height rather than feeling self-conscious for it.

** Another "out of school but still fitting" character is Lieutenant Isane Koutetsu. She's the tallest female Shinigami at 187 cm tall, which makes her the same height as tall male characters like Renji. A profile in one of the databooks states that when she reached 170 cm, she started to eat rice porridge to keep her from growing, since it has no nutrients. That didn't work out so well. She also has quite an ample bust, and her size makes her a bit embarrassed in the omakes.

* Brooke Shields was 5'10" when filming TheBlueLagoon...at age 14. This necessitated that many scenes be filmed with her either standing in a trench or with her costar Christopher Atkins standing on something to make her appear shorter than him.

Wikipedia has a table listing the average heights of men and women in many different countries. According to that table, the average height for men is consistently 10-15 cm taller (about 4"-6") than that of women from the same country. In Japan, a teenage girl of about 170 cm is roughly as tall as an average sized adult Japanese man. In works where it isn't obvious if someone is a huge schoolgirl because there aren't many adult/teenage female characters to compare her to or in settings where average adult heights differ from those in modern Japan, this should be kept in mind.

* ''Fanfic/{{Intercom}}'' uses this with Riley by way of relative size. Riley's emotions are a variety of sizes within Riley's mind. However, when Riley actually enters her mind through lucid dreaming, they're surprised to discover she's actually half a head bigger than the biggest of them (making her about 4' 7'', but seeming huge and magnanimous by comparison.

* In ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', there's Carol Danvers, who's pretty much fully physically developed in every sense, making her a StatuesqueStunner who looks like a college student at 14/15, and is every bit as tall as her [[ComicBook/MsMarvel canon counterpart]] meaning that she stands out like a sore thumb and gets a ''lot'' of unwanted attention.
