* IMMeen is very gangly. All the better to dance around and sing about clever children, I suppose.

* ''Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' has Mike Teavee. He's overstretched to ten feet tall in the novel and this fate is implied for him in the 1971 movie, but the 2005 movie actually shows how "skinny" he ended up ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IEqMxnegtk&feature=related at 5:20 in the video]]). Also, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QE0kASkdvA Charlie himself]] in the GameBoyAdvance game.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. Most noticeable with Asuka and Rei in their plugsuits; just look at the torsos. Although not that that distracting on screen, [[http://freewill.cyrem.org/life-size-eva-01-asuka-and-rei/ these life size figures]] [[UncannyValley can be quite disturbing]]. There's also [[http://s3images.coroflot.com/user_files/individual_files/180470_otaDpMmtE8ssmCfW1JFOkI27k.jpg the Evas themselves.]] Their proportions are so slim, if their origin didn't let them ignore [[SquareCubeLaw the laws of nature]], they would be unable to ''stand''.

* Characters as designed by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto mostly appear like this. Body types are pretty thin, but the ''real'' show is all in the scrawny arms and lanky legs, such as:

* The female characters of ''Anime/SpaceBattleshipYamato''/''Anime/StarBlazers''. Starsha in particular looks impossibly gawky in an elegant sort of way.

* The female characters of ''Anime/SpaceBattleshipYamato''/''Anime/StarBlazers''. Starsha in particular looks impossibly gawky in an elegant sort of way. This is only to be expected, though, because the series was originally created by Creator/LeijiMatsumoto, who is (in)famous for his willowy females and gangly men.



* Kouta Hirano of ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' does something like this; his characters tend to be very streched. Unlike most examples of this trope, however, his thick-lined, angular style still give limbs a lot of weight despite their elongated proportions.

Unlike most examples of this trope, however, his thick-lined, angular style still give limbs a lot of weight despite their elongated proportions. He gets even better in ''Manga/{{Drifters}}'', where the characters, while still quite slender, have somewhat more realistic proportions (well, except [[CelestialBureaucracy Murasaki]]).

* Thin Men from ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' are [[TheReptilians snake-like aliens]] that have been thoroughly genetically engineered to resemble humans in order to [[TheInfiltration infiltrate business and government]] as well as carry out more [[MenInBlack covert tasks]]. As their name implies, one of their most defining features is a very slender and flexible frame.

* Any character played by Javier Botet, who is himself a real-life example of this trope due to his pronounced Marfan's syndrome; his frame and gift for body language made him a natural creature actor, and after his breakthrough role as the [[spoiler:original "zombie"]] in ''Film/{{REC}}'', he's since gone on to do [[Film/Mama many]] [[Film/CrimsonPeak more]] [[Film/DontKnockTwice like it]]. His most famous role, [[Film/TheConjuring2 the Crooked Man]], is often mistaken for a CGI creation just because of how ''exaggerated'' it is.

* The [[spoiler:original "zombie"]] in ''Film/{{REC}}''. The actor is Javier Botet, and he is that tall and lanky because of Marfan syndrome. The rest were just well applied makeup and great acting.
