* ''Series/TheLastShip:'' The CO of the titular ship, Mike Slattery, is 63 while his XO, Andrea Garnett, is 55 and their height difference is very noticeable whenever the two stand next to each other. This proves to be a great advantage when they are [[spoiler:kidnapped by pirates and she needs to slip away to enact part of their escape plan]] as he can literally turn and block her from view with his body.

* Almost everyone is One Head Taller than Tsuna in ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn''.

* Inverted and then played straight in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. Winry seems only a tad bit taller than Ed, but this may be because she wears boots with slight heels for most of the first portion of the series. In fact, it seems like they're basically the same height, [[http://www.onemanga.com/Full_Metal_Alchemist/84/16/ until chapter 84 that is]]. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, he ''is'' getting taller... sorta. Ed finally manages the trope in the epilogue, when he [[spoiler:proposes to Winry]].
* Inverted in the fujoshi fandom of ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'' where one of the most popular pairings is Seijurou Shin and Haruto Sakuraba, which Sakuraba is very noticeably taller than Shin. However it's played straight with BL pairings with Sena Kobayakawa, who is pretty short compared to most football players in the series.

* Similar to the example above, ultra gorgeous French actress Mathilda May was noticeable shorter than most of her male costars in ''Film/{{Lifeforce}}'' so this trope was present quite a bit in the movie. The best example being when her character, [[EvilIsSexy Space]] [[FullFrontalAssault Girl]], confronted Dr Bukovsky (Michael Gothard) in the autopsy room after attacking the security guard. We get to see that Gothard is easily one head and a half taller than May.

* On the original ''Series/GetSmart'', Barbara Feldon was actually taller than Don Adams, which could have highlighted the comic nature of the couple, but the producers insisted their heights be "fixed".

** At one point she mentioned that she was the only actress in Hollywood with calluses on her ankles, as she would roll her ankles, throw out her hip, and bow her head to look as short as possible.

* In TheMovies, any actor or actress can play any role. In a romantic scene featuring a man putting the moves on a woman, the man will be noticeably taller.

* Mr. Mighty and his wife Jane in ''Webcomic/EverydayHeroes''.
** A partial subversion involves Summer and Carrie; Carrie is the much more outgoing of the girls, and would normally be about half a head shorter than Summer ... except for her enormous head of hair, which brings her up to about the same height. [[http://eheroes.smackjeeves.com/comics/2111630/its-obvious/ Uma is taller than both,]] but tries not to be noticed (because she's an [[AlienAmongUs alien]] hiding on Earth).

** Inverted with Princess Larana and Hoffmann - although they're not technically in a relationship ''yet'', they have an ArrangedMarriage and she has an extremely obvious crush on him. She's also at ''least'' a head taller than him, possibly more. It's especially noticeable on [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20160120#.VvRg6uKLTIU this page]], when she's leaning sideways and is ''still'' a head taller.

* Another inversion: 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).

* ''Franchise/StarWars'': Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala aren't ''that'' far apart -- Hayden Christiansen is 6'1" (185 cm), Creator/NataliePortman 5'3" (160 cm). However, had Padme survived Episode III, ''she'' might not have believed Darth Vader was her husband -- because his transformation to a cyborg was accompanied by a jump in height of about six inches, as the original Vader, David Prowse, was 6'7" (200 cm). For an idea of what a reunion would have been like, consider Princess Leia's (who took very well after her mother) and Vader's scenes together. The in-universe reason is that Anakin's new legs were bigger than his real ones, increasing his height (probably to make his look more menacing to his enemies).
** For that matter, Leia and Han, given that Creator/HarrisonFord is about 6'1" (185 cm) and Carrie Fisher is about 5'1" (155 cm). She has to look up for him to kiss her forehead.
** ''Film/TheForceAwakens'': Echoing Darth Vader (tall evil man in black) and Princess Leia (petite good WomanInWhite) are Kylo Ren and Rey. Tall bad guys seems to be a theme: Gen. Hux and Captain Phasma are also over six feet tall and towering over ''them'' is Supreme Leader Snoke, a seven-foot-tall alien who appears as a giant hologram VS. General Leia and Maz Kanata, a tiny alien woman. There's also the droid BB-8, who's shorter than R2-D2.

** Watanuki, the protagonist of Tsubasa's sister series ''Manga/XxxHolic'' is an interesting example. Within his own series, he looks kind of scrawny, as he's shorter than his [[HoYay often-around classmate]] Doumeki, and is about the same height as [[MistressAndServantBoy his female employer]] Yuuko.
