* Nyanko-Sensei from ''Manga/NatsumeYuujinchou'' is quite portly in general, being occasionally referred to as a 'pig-cat' - and when he jumps out of SleepModeSize, he's a huge ''[[CanisMajor dog]]''. But the point where he really turns into this trope is in episode 12, when he comes into contact with a curse-mark that screws his powers up. His SleepModeSize shrinks to the size of a teacup, making him [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter hilariously cute]], but when he attempts to assume his 'true' form, he instead winds up as... a severely overweight cat the size of a small elephant.

** Funnily enough, [[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY Male Pyroar]] are rather ''undersized'' compared to their real-life lion inspiration. Pyroar are 4'11" (1.5 m) and 179.7 lbs. (81.5 kg), while male lions range 5'7" to 8'2" (170 to 250 cm) and 418 lb (189.6 kg). Guess being able to [[PlayingWithFire blast fire from your mouth]] makes up for size, though.

* Norwegian Forest Cats are very similar in size and appearance to Maine Coons, with a much sturdier build thanks to their native origins in Northern Europe. One of them was big and pissed off enough to scare off ''[[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2450732/Outfoxed-Fearless-Forest-Cat-turns-guard-dog-chases-rival-fox-land.html a fox]]''.

* The Maine Coon breed is generally considered to be the largest domestic cat breed, with some weighing in at over 25 pounds and 4 feet in length. See [[http://www.snopes.com/photos/animals/bigcat2.asp here]] for a picture of one large-looking specimen.
** Most housecats stop growing at about a year old. Maine Coons don't stop growing until then are about four years old. The kitty in that picture was only about two.

* In ''Film/TeamAmericaWorldPolice'' the team is menaced by "panthers" that are very clearly just regular house cats. In this case, the fact that the characters were all marionettes meant that they didn't even have to cheat to make the cat look big.

* The ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "Catspaw" featured a SufficientlyAdvancedAlien who turned herself into a giant cat. Unfortunately, the drama was ruined by low budget special effects fail. The "giant" cat was very clearly just a regular house cat that was stuck in a box made to look like one of the hallways. It didn't help that we'd already seen her in regular-sized cat form - played by the same cat.

* Diesel of the "Cat in the Stacks" cozy mystery series is a 36-pound Maine Coon cat who is said to be about half the size of a full-grown Labrador and accompanies his owner everywhere on a leash. The small Mississippi town they live in are still adjusting to the sight of him. His owner found him as a stray six-week old kitten and thought he was so big that he mistook the kitten for an adult cat.
