* One contributor to the website Etiquette Hell submitted a story about a "wedding from hell" which was in fact just unconventional; her criticisms included the fact that everybody was dressed goth, the attendants weren't split along gender lines, and there was no champagne at the reception. Perhaps the most bizarre complaint, though, was that the bride overtopped the groom by "about a foot". The bride found the story and [[https://www.etiquettehell.com/smf/index.php?topic=1352.0 posted on the website's forums]], sarcastically asking if she should have cut her legs off at the knees to avoid committing such a grave solecism as ''being tall''.

* Tharja, Olivia, and Kjelle are all dwarfed by the Avatar in their confessions as well, especially the latter two who almost qualify for HugeGuyTinyGirl.

* Creator/TomCruise and almost everyone. Cruise is noticeably on the short side at 5'7" (the average height for American men is around 5'9" or 5'10"), and while he is taller than the average American ''woman'' (about 5'4" in height), he's often paired with statuesque actresses (plus the women he's been most linked with - Mimi Rogers, Creator/NicoleKidman and Katie Holmes - are all taller than him).

** Junpei and Akane. Not really visible in ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'', since it's from Junpei's POV and uses sprites, making it hard to compare, pretty clearly visible in ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma''.

* Mike and Gloria Stivic in ''Series/AllInTheFamily'' (played by Creator/RobReiner who is 6'2 and Sally Struthers who is 5'1). On their first date, they try ballroom dancing, and Mike sings "Cheek to Cheek" (a song from the Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers movie ''Film/TopHat'') but he has to change the lyrics to "chest to cheek".

* Non-romantic examples: In the ''Literature/MissBindergarten'' series, Adam the Alligator and Christopher the Cat are both shown to be at least one head taller than Brenda the Beaver. We should note that the students who are some kind of rodent are at least a head smaller than children who are other kinds of animals.

* In figure skating and ballroom dancing, it's usually recommended that the man have some height on the woman.
** This doesn't mean Man's height > Woman's height. This means Man's height > Woman's height + 3ins or 4ins heels.
*** 2"-3" heels (though in Latin dancing, the man is usually wearing 1"-1.5" heels himself) in ballroom, but in skating both are standing on blades about the same height. Also in pairs skating in particular, what the Russians termed "gorilla and flea" pairs (this trope in extremis) grow out of one partner, almost always the man, needing to lift the other partner, almost always the woman, straight over his head. This is easier with a wide size disparity--many partnerships formed when the pair were tweens or teens end when the girl has a growth spurt and the boy fails to grow enough to match.
