* 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]].

* Averted in the final version of ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', however in [[WhatCouldHaveBeen an earlier script]] Rapunzel's love interest was a tall, bulky man named Bastion. Bastion was replaced because they wanted a more attractive looking male lead, though Kristoff from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' is [[{{expy}} influenced by]] Bastion.

* The morphing system in ''VideoGame/FableI'' gives the player character a looming HeroicBuild as his powers grow, so by late game, he towers head and shoulders over his spouse.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'', Marisa is the shortest adult character in the series, while Alice is said to be taller than average. You would never know this from fanart, where artists {{Shipping}} the two together will almost invariably make Marisa taller than Alice due to this trope. Not only is Marisa generally depicted as "the guy" in most of her Ships, but {{Fanon}} depictions of Alice often make her {{Tsundere}} as well.
