* ''Film/DudeWheresMyCar'', of all things.
* The Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man from ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' was one of these. He started out as a cute little cartoon mascot not unlike the Pillsbury Doughboy, but Ray Stantz's choice of him as the form of the Destructor made him gigantic. In fact, his size and mass are the only dangerous things about him.

* The 360-degree short film ''"HELP"'' made by Justin Lin and YouTube, is a ''one big presentation'' of this trope. A cute alien crash-lands on Earth, and before it can phone its companions for help, [[HumansAreBastards a random by-passer steals it "cell phone"]]. The alien gives chase, [[BizarreAlienBiology getting madder and bigger]] as she evades it. Its not an aggressive being, but becomes so in response to aggression, evolving into a [[NighInvulnerable menacing character armored in spikes and muscles]]. Its soon a [[{{Kaiju}} whopping 200ft tall]], before the lady finally [[HeelRealization realizes her error]] and surrenders it back. The alien [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe shrinks back down and happily departs with no further issue]].

* ''Franchise/SuperSentai''/''Franchise/PowerRangers''. Whenever the Rangers defeated the MonsterOfTheWeek, eight times out of ten the BigBad of the season would resurrect it at giant size for the Rangers to fight in their [[HumongousMecha Zords]]. Each villain had a different method for doing this; let's just list the ''Power Rangers'' ones - TropeNamer [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Rita Repulsa]] threw her magic staff to the Earth, [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Lord Zedd]] threw a magical grenade, [[Series/PowerRangersZeo the Machine Empire]] sent out a tiny robot with an enlarging ray... [[labelnote:If you care...]] [[Series/PowerRangersTurbo Divatox]] fired torpedoes with a growth potion, [[Series/PowerRangersInSpace Astronema]] fired a ray from her base, ''Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy'' monsters grew on their own or, rarely, from drinking a potion, [[Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue Jinxer]] threw growth cards, which he had in addition to monster and mook cards, [[Series/PowerRangersTimeForce mutants]] tore off "DNA patches," [[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Toxica]] fired magic seeds from her staff, [[Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm Lothor]] fired a "Scroll of Empowerment" from his ship, [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Mesogog]] used a "Hydro-Regeneraator" that brought down technobabble-laden rain, alien criminals in ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'' [[AvertedTrope used their own "Zords"]], ''Series/PowerRangersMysticForce'' had it as one more easily-cast spell, each ''Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive'' BigBad had his own grow method, [[Series/PowerRangersJungleFury Rinshi Beasts]] used a necessarily-vaguely-defined martial arts technique, [[Series/PowerRangersRPM Venjix]]... uh, the visuals that accompany "Begin the download, now!" are pretty vague, but consensus is 'download' refers to downloading a growth program into the monster, [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai Nighloks]] naturally had a second "Megamonster" life/state/form that kicked in when they're blown up, [[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce Vrak]] called his Zombats to attach themselves to the monster to initiate the growth, [[Series/PowerRangersMegaforce Princess Levira]] fired the Maximizer ray from the Armada's mothership, and [[Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge Sledge]] commands one of his {{Mooks}} to fire the Magnabeam from his spaceship. Whew.[[/labelnote]] (mind you, the monster being destroyed at small size first didn't become the norm until ''well'' into the series, and sometimes ''can't'' happen - any form of self-activated growth requires the monster to ''exist'' in order to do it. No matter how many times it happens, any longtime Power Rangers fan will probably never feel quite right watching a ray strike the totally empty space where the utterly-vaporized-onscreen monster ''used'' to be, somehow causing a giant monster to manifest from ''nothing.'')

** ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'' has a literal example. Luckyuro can make the Debo Monsters grow with ''watering can'' that pours "water" (a fluid made from Deboss' cells) on them.

** In ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'', Luckyuro pours the Restoration Water (Deboss' cells) from his Sukusuku Joyro watering can on a Debo Monster to make it grow. He can also shrink the said Debo Monster back to its original size by using the Restoration Water-absorbing Shukushuku Balls.
*** A Debo Monster can also grow again if it is hit with an already absorbed Shukushuku Ball.

*** As Grotch found out in Episode 4, an expired imo-youkan temporarily allows the consumer to become big before reverting back to his/her original size, with stomach pains being the side effect. Gynamo took advantage of the said side effect in the finale, where he fed the expired imo-youkan on a giant Exhaus, causing the latter to revert back to his original form and shrink to human-size for the Carrangers to finish him off.

** Parodied (all the time) in ''Series/GekisouSentaiCarranger''. In order for the Gorotsuki (Bowzock's [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters of the Week]]) to grow, they must eat imo-youkan [[note]]a yellow cube-shaped food made from jellied sweet potatoes[[/note]]. Said food must be freshly hand-made from a certain store (Imocho). Factory-made and/or expired imoyoukan makes the Gorotsuki shrink.

* In ''Franchise/SuperSmashBros'' from ''Melee'' and onwards, this is done through Super Mushrooms. Players can fool around with size changing by allowing these items during a Giant setting. [[UpToEleven And if this isn't enough for them, they can choose to allow only Lightnings (Brawl and onward) and wait for one to backfire and really super size the other foes]].
