* A LowerDeckEpisode of ''Series/HawaiiFive0'' ends with the crew standing in a line: Jerry's sister (a tall, curvy Latina), Jerry (a 6' GentleGiant), Kamekona (an ''even bigger'' BigFun), Flippa (Kamekona's cousin with a StrongFamilyResemblance), Eric (Danny's average-height nephew), and little Max at the end (who is also a grown man, but only 5'6" at most).

* When Creator/ValKilmer hosted ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'', he reprised his Jim Morrison character from ''TheDoors'' in a skit about the dead Morrison forming a rock band in Heaven. He picks several deceased rock musicians... and then his final pick is jazz great Louis Armstrong, whose musical style doesn't mesh with that of the others ''at all'', so they just have him play a trumpet solo at the end of every song.

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', Rickon Stark is the youngest of the Stark children, and receives less focus than the rest. Among the Lannisters is Tyrion Lannister, who is a dwarf, and is often looked down upon by everyone, despite being the smartest of Tywin's children.

* Subverted in a memorable action sequence in Creator/TimBurton's ''Film/BatmanReturns''. Batman is on the street at night beating up [[MonsterClown a gang of criminals dressed as circus clowns]], all of whom are either karate experts or are armed to the teeth. Suddenly he finds himself surrounded by, from left to right 1) a clown wielding a rocket launcher, 2) a clown swinging some nunchuks, 3) a clown brandishing two Japanese swords, and 4) an ordinary-looking woman (ordinary by the gang's standards, anyway) with curly blonde hair, a pink dress, no weapons, and a cute (but growling) poodle at her feet. Batman electronically programs a throwing disc to hit all four criminals, and when he throws it, it knocks out the three clowns fairly quickly - but [[PositiveDiscrimination never hits the woman]], because her dog jumps up impossibly high and catches it in its jaws! The dog runs off, and not only does Batman never get his weapon back, but [[ChekhovsGun it's used against him later in the movie]]. (There's also a second subversion in that the woman isn't just TheDarkChick; she's the third-ranked member of the entire gang, and by the movie's climax is serving as TheDragon after Batman nabs the number-two man.)

* Before the Delta Tau Chi members launch their mission of sabotage against Faber College's homecoming parade, there is a "tick-tock" montage (with eerie music by ElmerBernstein) of several of the guys checking their watches to see if it's time to go. Everyone is wearing an expensive watch that marks the time as precisely eleven o'clock - except for Bluto, whose watch is really cheap-looking and broken, and is showing a blatantly wrong time to boot--because he's wearing it ''upside down''.
* The director's cut of ''[[Film/TheNakedGun Naked Gun 33⅓: The Final Insult]]'', which was the version shown on American television, had an extra gag when Frank Drebin was arriving at the state prison (going undercover as an inmate to infiltrate a gang of terrorists). Frank is led past cells containing increasingly intimidating criminals: a guy so tough he lights matches by scraping them across his face, a guy so tough he lights ''firewood'' by scraping it across his face, [[LionsAndTigersAndHumansOhMy an African lion]], and...[[EnemyMime a mime]], who is not in a cell and who thinks he's in an "invisible cage." (In the theatrical version, only the first two guys were shown.)

* In the sausage episode of ''Series/GoodEats'', Alton makes Italian sausage. After filling up a long tube of edible collagen, he pinches and twists the collagen to make the links. The very last link is a bit smaller than the others, but it's usually the one that gets cooked and eaten first.

*** And to drive home how much of a runt he is, he has a buff that doesn't do anything, but simply has the description "He's trying his best...". It's heartbreaking.

* StephenKing's ''Literature/{{It}}'' has Stanley Uris, the [[YouHaveToHaveJews token Jewish kid]] and LovableCoward of the "Losers' Club." He's far from being the smallest of the boys (and he's bigger than the girl of the group, of course), but when the kids go down into the sewers to hunt a monster that has been killing and eating children, Stanley is the most visibly nervous of the bunch and is so scared that he trails behind the others when they make their way into the heart of the sewer system. His dawdling eventually gets him captured by the town bully (whose gang has been stalking the Losers' Club) and nearly cut with a switchblade knife before the bully and his gang are frightened off by the monster. Later, the monster attacks the Losers' Club and grabs Stan first because he is the most fearful and [[EvilTastesGood "You all taste so much better when you're afraid!"]] Then it is time for Eddie Kaspbrak, the ''literal'' runt of the group, to step up and [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome spray the monster in the face with battery acid from his asthma tube]].
