* ''Series/{{Community}}'' has 6"4" Jeff and the 5"3" Annie. Britta's in the same boat but is always wearing tall-heeled boots of some sort so it's less noticeable.

* ''Series/{{Community}}'' has 6"4" Jeff and the 5"3" Annie. The decision to pair them up romantically, [[WillTheyOrWontThey sort]] [[UnresolvedSexualTension of]], resulted in a lot more hilarious shots of them standing close together. A good example can be seen in the Season 4 finale, when a shot requiring a close-up on Annie's face while they were hugging meant that Jeff's head was entirely out of the top of the frame.
** Abed at one point {{Lampshades}} their "two-foot height disparity".

* Saruhiko is one head taller than Misaki in ''Anime/{{K}}''. Kuroh and Shiro can also appear this way in official art. Officially, they're 5'10-11 and 5'6-7, but they're drawn this way even if that doesn't quite equal a head. [[spoiler: Weismann returns to his original body, he's actually the taller one of the pair, though only slightly]].



* Inverted with Comicbook/{{Nightwing}} (Who is an average 5'10). Starfire, one of his main love interests, is taller than him (almost by more than one head). Especially in his ComicBook/{{New 52}} incarnation.

* Ririka from ''Manga/NurseAngelRirikaSOS'' only reaches Nozumu's shoulder. It's justified because she is a fourth grader while he is slightly older.

* In ''{{Porkys}}'', during a Prom sequence, Meat (who appears to be about 6'6) is dancing with a tall woman while his short buddy is dancing with a short woman. [[InvokedTrope Another friend interrupts the two couples and forces them to trade partners]]: "There, that satisfies my sense of proportion."

* Although Negi Springfield from ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' is usually shorter than 90% of his class (being 9½-year-old boy teaching 15-year-old girls), when he magically turns 15 while he and Asuna go on NotADate (as she constantly reminds him and probably also ''herself'' ) in chapter 77, he is very much one head taller. On the other hand, when Negi is in his normal 10-year-old form he is two heads shorter than when in teen form which means Asuna is one head taller than ''him''.
** This is parodied in a famous age-progression ImageMacro, which states that Negi's adult form is [[Manga/{{Bastard}} Dark Schneider]].

Bastion was replaced because they wanted a more attractive looking male lead, though Kristoff from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' is [[{{expy}} influenced by]] Bastion.
