* This is a key plot point in ''Literature/BraveNewWorld'', particularly since the society invokes this deliberately by retarding the growth of lower castes to various degrees.

Bernard Marx has a massive inferiority complex because he's an alpha but for some reason (many suspect accidental alcohol administration) he's as short as many gammas.

* Subverted in {{Kiss}}, whose lead singer and brains of the band Paul Stanley is of fairly average height, while his number-three man, bassist Gene Simmons, is the most physically imposing thanks to his thick metal armor and stilettoed platform shoes. Actually double-subverted if you think about it, because with his instantly recognizable "kabuki lizard" face, Simmons is undoubtedly TheFaceOfTheBand.

* ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'' subverts this with the Hakushuu Dinosaurs, as team captain Marco is quite scared of the massive Gaou, creating the impression that Gaou is leading the team. But Gaou has nothing but respect for Marco and no desire to challenge his authority, meaning Marco is really in charge.

* In ''WesternAnimation/LegendOfKorra'' Vaatu is this trope in the second book. Zaheer averts it, he is a regular sized man but Ghazan and especially P'li are taller than him.
* This seems to be common among the Gems of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''. Rose Quartz was the former leader of the Crystal Gems and expansive in all directions, her replacement Garnet is also considerably taller and larger than any of the others. Jasper, the highest ranking member of the Homeworld Gems thus seen in season 1, matches her in height and is very broad shouldered and muscular. This is later revealed to be part of the Gem Homeworld's FantasticCasteSystem. Later, it's revealed the Homeworld leaders are a group of Diamonds who take this trope to the extreme by being the size of the Crystal Gems' largest fusions.

* Vince [=McMahon=], the man behind [[Wrestling/{{WWE}} World Wrestling Entertainment]], stands at six-foot-two and weighs about 250 pounds, pretty average by wrestling standards but gigantic compared to the other members of his family and his various assorted corporate cronies. And he wears a padded suit to make himself look even larger.
* TheNexus. WadeBarrett may not have been the largest man in that nine-man group, but he was definitely near the top of the list.
* Played with in TNA's Aces & Eights. The [[TheDragon Dragon]] of the team (and ''de facto'' leader in many of the brawls) was early on revealed to be the massive (6'7", 291 pounds) Drew Hankinson, a.k.a. "Director of Chaos" or "D.O.C." (pronounced like the monosyllabic slang term for a doctor). He was the first member of the gang to be publicly unmasked, and thus embodied the entire group for a number of months. Since then, however, as several other members of Aces & Eights have been revealed, D.O.C. is no longer very prominent and now basically fills the role of DumbMuscle.

* In the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, S.H.I.E.L.D. is led by Samuel L. Jackson (6' 2½"\1,89 m). Film/{{The Avengers|2012}} kinda fit, even if Chris Evans (Captain America) is shorter than both Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Paul Bettany (Vision).

* One reason Creator/BenAffleck was cast as Batman in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' is because he's taller than the already big Henry Cavill, and once Affleck [[DyeingForYourArt bulked up]], the Dark Knight seems massive even next to Superman. Given Batman will [[Film/DCExtendedUniverse lead the Justice League]], the "in charge" also fits (even if the Aquaman, Jason Momoa, is slightly taller).
