* ''WarhammerOnline'''s redesign of the city sieges pits boss [=NPCs=] against each other. The Warlords are twice the size of a normal player (despite being characters that, in the original tabletop game, were normal man-sized), whereas the King [=NPCs=] are both roughly three to four times the height of a normal man. including the Emperor Karl Franz, who is very much a normal human. Still, it helps to a) justify his one-on-one fight with the monstrously huge and mutated Daemon Prince Tchar'Zanek and b) pick him out as a target...

* Subverted in ''TransformersWarForCybertron'' and ''TransformersFallOfCybertron''. While Optimus Prime and Megatron are larger than most other playable characters, not only does the game contain giant characters that {{Kaiju}} size, but also some enemies on both sides such as Leapers, Titans, Destroyers that are much bigger than they are, plus on the Autobot side, Grimlock who most characters are only knee height to.

* In the Sonic fanverse of Dimensional Wars many of the 'Bradanksas' are known to be born with the genetic power to become size-shifters with the capability to grow gigantic at will. However, it's more that their entire family has served the people of Moebius and their family has members who have influenced it's history that makes these giants really fit to rule. Other giant characters, like Dr.Ophelia Daniel for instance merely works in the "Bad Egg Unit" as a research engineer and doesn't really use her super-size to do anything more than to preform villainous acts and defend herself.

One notorious example however, is Griefan Nathaniel Bradanska: http://jaredthefox92.deviantart.com/favourites/64907145/Grief-Grief-and-more-Grief He comes out of the first "Great Dimensional War" as a war hero to the Moebian side, and eventually goes on to become the 'baron' of the New Order faction. Grief will get mad at his underlings, but he saves all his gigantic ferocity on his foes as he leads by example up front and rampages through his enemies ranks, (with adequate air support and artillery support that is.)

Her force of personality is equal to her size, too, and is one of the few who can [[http://48palw1jqfwf1zkjitvyccc1-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/tumblr_inline_msbdjeAUx41qz4rgp.jpg stand toe-to-toe with Batman]].

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': The Alethi are tall in general, but Kaladin is tall even by their standards. Among the bridge squad he leads, he is the tallest, except for the seven-foot Horneater named Rock. Even then, Rock only has a couple inches on him.
