* Much like the Farquaad example above, Mr. Aloysius O'Hare, the vertically-challenged CorruptCorporateExecutive from the movie version of ''WesternAnimation/TheLorax''. And the fact that he's voiced by Rob Riggle, who stands about 6' 2½''.

* Much like the Farquaad example above, Mr. Aloysius O'Hare, O'Hare is the vertically-challenged CorruptCorporateExecutive from the movie version of ''WesternAnimation/TheLorax''. And the fact that Like Farquaad, he's voiced by a tall actor: namely Rob Riggle, who stands about 6' 2½''.2½''. The Lorax himself is another example, but unlike O'Hare, his voice actor (Creator/DannyDeVito) is famously short.

Related to HeightAngst. See MisterBig for when a vertically-challenged person is head of a criminal organisation. Compare ACupAngst, when a female character feels inferior due to a lack of ''outward'' growth. Napoleons might use a HitlerCam and/or ScullyBox to appear taller.

* Literature/SisterhoodSeries by Creator/FernMichaels: Many times, a short male character will pop up and the author or one of the characters will say that the guy probably has a Napoleon Complex. This sort of character is portrayed as a {{Jerkass}} at best by the author.
