** This was needed but the actual box technique itself was averted come time for Creator/MattSmith to step into the shoes of the Doctor. For his most iconic enemy, The Daleks, those that remained were tailored for Bilie Piper's height previously, but instead of imploying any camera trickery or boxes, they simply redesigned a new set of Daleks to match Smith's considerably taller frame... unfortunately they weren't very popular with the fans.

* In ''Film/{{Scream 4}}'', Creator/EmmaRoberts, who at 5'2" was by far the shortest member of the cast, had to wear seven-inch-high boots to avoid being towered over by her co-stars. [[spoiler:Since she plays the killer, it was extra important that she look like she wouldn't get knocked over by a strong wind.]]
* Sofia Boutellla requested the costume designer of ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'' to put heels on the [[BootsOfToughness combat boots]] she wore as Jaylah. After all, she's 5' 5" (1,65 m), and while most of Jaylah's scenes are with the average-sized Creator/SimonPegg, the height difference would be worse when the other men appear.

*** As shown by the many RealLife examples below, it's actually fairly common in debates between people of significantly different height to use boxes or platforms to equalize them (which is why Stewart had one). Appearances influence opinions, after all, and to prevent height, a factor beyond anyone's control, from influencing the result, it's important that the participants stand at a more-or-less equal height.

* {{Invoked|trope}}, [[PlayedForLaughs for laughs]], in Chapter 36/ Episode 8 of ''Manga/MonthlyGirlsNozakiKun''. Nozaki uses these to cheat perspectives or to {{handwave}} how he screws up the perspective in his manga -- in the latter case, by claiming ''everyone'' has them InUniverse.

* ''Series/{{Castle}}'': Stana Katic is tall at 5'9" but Nathan Fillion is 6'2". Even though the show is called ''Castle'', the two actors' roles are basically equal in importance. So Katic almost always wears 3 to 4 inch heels, which are her version of the box. This is Lampshaded quite often on the show as asides from other characters and it is very obvious when she is not wearing heels.

This example is also unusual because height differences of only a few inches such as this usually don't cause an issue.

* In ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'', since Woody is actually much taller than Buzz, in scenes when they had to talk with each other but their feet wouldn't be in the frame, the animators would actually have Woody's legs dangling ''below'' the ground. They called it "Ditching".
