** 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.

* Chewbacca in ''Franchise/StarWars''. Class 2 or 3, depending on how you look at Wookiees. True to form, Chewbacca was portrayed by the 7'2" Peter Mayhew.

* 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.

* Mr. Mighty from ''Webcomic/EverydayHeroes'', at least in his current team. He could be either Class 2 or Class 5; in practice bouts with his teammates, he wins by [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/eddurd/everydayheroes/series.php?view=single&ID=88846 strategy]] rather than pure strength. Has often fought solo in the past, and has learned to [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/eddurd/everydayheroes/series.php?view=single&ID=146943 outsmart]] opponents.

* Marv from ''ComicBook/SinCity'' was designed to be one of these. In FrankMiller's words: "Conan in a trenchcoat". He's seven feet tall, he's at least four feet wide, he's big and boisterous and strong. When he teams up with Dwight in "A Dame To Kill For" it's especially apparent.

* Teamed with the Franchise/{{Justice League|of America}} or otherwise, {{Superman}} is usually considered the big guy or the big gun for the team, and is a mix of [[GentleGiant Class 2]] and [[GeniusBruiser Class 5]], although he's simultaneously TheLeader and TheHero.

* Subverted in the ''ComicBook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' storyline in which ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' joins [[Franchise/GreenLantern Guy Gardner's Red Lanterns]]. She was tinier than her teammates... and the most powerful ''by far''.



* ''Franchise/{{Pokémon}}'s'' Send Your OCs fanfic, ''[[PokemonTakeTwo Pokémon: Take Two]]'', gives us Raion, the protagonist. She may not be anything special when it comes to Pokémon training, but has more physical strength than a ten-year-old child should.
