** 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.

To her former schoolfriends, she is still "Queen Kong".

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".

* ''Series/TrueLife'' profiled a girl like this in the episode "I'm The Big Girl". Holley Mangold, sister of NFL center Nick Mangold, was 5'8" and was over 300 pounds. Her favorite sports included American football and weightlifting. She ended up competing in weightlifting in the 2012 Olympics and came in tenth, competing while injured.

* ''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 feminine 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.
