*** It seems to be genetic for the ten foot tall Donflamingo, as [[spoiler: his late brother]] was only a few inches shorter than he was, and assuming his height was proportionate as a child, his parents were similar. [[spoiler: All four were former World Nobles.]]

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samuel_J._Battle Samuel Battle]], the first African-American officer in the NYPD, was 6'3" and about 280 lbs. This may have helped him become the first black sergeant and lieutenant in the same organization.

Redlink and natter.
* SelfDemonstrating/{{Bowser}}, the [[BigBad Koopa King]] from ''SuperMarioBros''. One of the Punis even says so in ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor''.

*** Well, he was only ''that'' big [[ArtistsAreNotArchitects for his first appearance]]. Still, he was pretty big.

** Chief Thunderhoofs, the leader of the buffalo tribe, is a giant even compared to the other buffalo (who are in turn MUCH larger than the ponies). *** So he's large and in charge to lead the charge while enraged.

* 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, 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 homeworld leaders is a group of Diamonds who takes this trope to the extreme by being the size of the Crystal gem's largest fusions.

* All of the bosses in ''RuneScape'''s God Wars Dungeon are like that. The race of birdmen is led by a giant birdman, different from the others due to having his arms attached to the wings (possibly to aid in moving them). The general morass of goblins, ogres and such greenskin is led by a member of the nearly-extinct Ourg race, looking like a typical giant orc. The evil god's demons are led by a large demon, too. Only Saradomin's forces are led by an angelic being instead of a giant, not that much larger than a human. She's a member of an extinct race too, though.

Added an entry for Zdeno Chara, the captain of Boston Bruins and tallest-ever NHL player.
Added DiffLines:
* And while we are at sports, Zdeno Chara, the Slovakia-born defenseman, stands at 206 cm (6'9") - not only he is the tallest player in NHL history, but he also holds the record for the hardest slapshot ever (175.5 km/h, recorded at the 2012 All-Stars Skill Competition). He is also the captain of Boston Bruins since 2006 and led the team to a Stanley Cup victory in 2011.

** Ironically subverted with [[TheEmperor Emperor Palpatine]], the [[BigBad main villain]], who has the appearance of frail old man. ** ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' gives us [[BlackKnight Kylo Ren]], played by the 6'4" Adam Driver.

Jasper, the highest ranking member of the homeworld Gems thus seen, matches her in height and is very broad shouldered and muscular. The only exception so far is possibly (as her exact position in Gem society hasn't been established) Lapis Lazuli, who is certainly very powerful but is one of the smallest and most innocuous Gems. This is later revealed to be part of the Gem Homeworld's FantasticCasteSystem.
