* Averted in Image Comics' ''[=WildC.A.T.S.=]'' - Jacob Marlowe (Lord Emp) is the multi-millionaire financier as well as the team leader. He's also shown to be rather far below average height. (Four feet tall wouldn't be far off, though with scales being what they are in comics, it's sometimes hard to say.)

** Justified by the [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orks']] biology - not only do greenskins never stop growing, but successful or [[KlingonPromotion aspiring]] bosses will actually bulk up and grow even faster. Exemplified in Warlord Ghazghkull, the self-proclaimed Prophet of the Waaagh!, who's nearly [[http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/mediawiki/images/9/98/Ghazghkull_vs_Yarrick.jpg twenty feet tall]]. This all makes it very easy for Orks to tell who their superiors and underlings are, leading them to comment that humans' military hierarchy is confusing since we're "all 'bout da same size" and therefore must waste valuable time arguing over who's in charge (though some have wised up to the fact that [[TheCommissar those in charge]] have [[CommissarCap the nicest hats]]).
** In ''Literature/TheBeastArises'', the titular Beast is noted to be possible the largest Ork Warboss ever seen. The Astartes sized orks standing near him look like small children in comparison.
*** Behold, [[http://www.1d4chan.org/wiki/Deffboss Deffboss.]] He was supposed to be the sole survivor of the original batch of Orks, millions of years ago, and have kept fighting and growing ever since. Currently, he's the size of a planet, with a whole Ork ecosystem living in his body, who built fortifications as his armor.

** Queen Chrysalis is about the same size as Celestia and towers over her (admittedly tiny) children. This is biologically accurate for a hive insect queen, though she is very thin for this.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', the ancient [[{{Precursors}} Atmoran]] ([[HornyVikings proto-Nord]]) hero [[FounderOfTheKingdom Ysgramor]] is implied to be this.

Other sources indicate that this may have been the case for ''all'' Atmorans, with their average height being much taller than modern men.
