** While all Astartes are a minimum of seven feet tall with PowerArmor and huge weapons to match, personality-wise the SpaceWolves (Space Vikings) best fit the bill, followed by the White Scars (Space Mongols), being [[BoisterousBruiser loud, proud]], and in the Wolves' case, protective of those weaker than them, an attitude [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight which has not gotten them many friends in the Inquisition]].

** Reprogrammed Imperial security droid K-2SO from ''Film/RogueOne'' is only a little shorter (being, probably coincidentally, 7'2" tall) and looms over all the other characters, especially Jyn Erso (whose actress is 5'3"). He's a type five: his actual ''job'' is strategy (while his vocation is [[DeadpanSnarker providing snark]] and BrutalHonesty), and being huge and very durable is just a tactical advantage [[spoiler:as proven when it takes a hail of blaster fire quite a while to kill him on Scarif]]. To a lesser extent, there's Baze Malbus, who is ''only'' 6' tall, but makes up for it with a giant gatling blaster; he's mostly type one.

* Channon Yarrow of ''{{Transmetropolitan}}'' is a relatively subtle Big Girl-- to be fair, being physically imposing by comparison with Spider Jerusalem isn't that hard. Still, she doesn't easily fit into any of the subtropes.
