Added DiffLines:

* In ''Twilight'', every Cullen couple and shifter couple is this, to a ludicrous degree. Every Cullen male vampire is six feet tall or taller, whereas the tallest Cullen female vampire (Rosalie) is only 5'9" (and her mate Emmett is ''still'' over a head taller than her at 6'5"). Of particularly egregious note is Alice and Jasper: she's almost a full ''foot-and-a-half'' shorter than him. As for the shifters, they ''all'' grow to ridiculous heights when they start shifting (all over six feet), whereas their imprintees are of normal height (or literal ''children'' as in the case of Claire and Nessie, and so very, very short compared to the shifters). The films, not having access to inhumanly-tall behemoths, downplays this aspect quite a bit.

* [[{{Weredragon}} Ilulu]] from ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' is one head shorter than her ImpliedLoveInterest Taketo due to her poor transformation skills giving her the relative height of a child.

* Another two-man example: ''TopGear'''s Jeremy Clarkson (6'5") and Richard Hammond (5'7"). Often becomes an issue whenever Jeremy has to adjust the seats of a car that Richard had previously driven.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/OsomatsuKun'', Totoko is about a head taller than the brothers. This is much more prominent in the 80's adaptation, where they're drawn as shorter and stouter than their lanky manga designs. An episode from that era featuring the cast in old age even still has Osomatsu as the shorter one between him and her. This might be more of a side result of Akatsuka's designs making female characters more proportional than the male ones, though.
** When the brothers are made more proportional in ''Anime/OsomatsuSan'', they're about her height.
* In ''Manga/MahouShoujoOre'', Sakuyo is a head taller than her unrequited crush, Saki. Not so much in magical boy mode, though, where they both get taller but are the same height. Saki also has this dynamic with Mohiro, which again is leveled out by her alternate form.

** Platonic examples: Phoenix and Edgeworth are respectively one head taller than Maya and Franziska (in one official manga splash page, it's prominently shown).
** Slightly less platonic examples, Phoenix is one head taller than Dahlia [[spoiler:and Iris]], and [[spoiler:Diego Armando]] is this with Mia.

With some skill, this trope can give the illusion of characters being much older (or [[TeensAreShort younger]]) than they actually are.

are. On the other hand, if one wants to disguise a huge difference, expect a ScullyBox to be used.

* VideoGame/DragonBallFighterZ: The Artificial Humans #16 and #21 have this dynamic, with the former towering the latter by a mile. While it is definitely not a romantic example, it is very common for [[spoiler:sons (even though #16 is merely modelled after Dr. Gero‘s and #21‘s deceased son)]] to be taller than their [[spoiler:mothers]]. However, given how much taller #16 is compared to everyone else on the roster except Broly and maybe Cell, the two give a HugeGuyTinyGirl illusion, which makes it hard to tell at first that #21 is actually a StatuesqueStunner.
