* This is a staple of French cartoonist [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Dubout Albert Dubout]]'s illustrations. He especially pushed the size difference to ExaggeratedTrope level, having the husbands being midgets compared to their huge, heavyset battleaxe wives with GagBoobs.

* The Disney ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'' has the King and Queen of Hearts. The Queen of Hearts is a huge, overbearing figure. The King of Hearts is miniscule in comparison. It is lampshaded in the introductions:
--> '''White Rabbit:''' Her imperial highness, he... her grace, her excellency, her royal majesty, the Queen of Hearts!
--> '''Crowd:''' ''(wild cheers)''
--> '''The King:''' ''(clears his throat expectantly)''
--> '''White Rabbit:''' [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg And the King.]]
--> '''Random voice:''' Hooray!

He's not particularly tiny, though -- she's just ''really'' big. Just to make it clear, Granmammare is the personification of the OCEAN! Fujimoto used to be a regular human, and now at least still APPEARS human. Thus, it's extremely understandable that she'd be bigger than him.

* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'': Krillin is noticeably shorter than his wife #18 (who's the tallest female character in the show) and practically every other character of the series (Gohan was the same height as him when he was ''four years old''). Although this just might be inconsistent height, considering he's 5'0 and was as tall as Gohan when he was 9/10.

** Peach is visibly (at least) a head taller than Mario, even with a Super Mushroom, mostly because Mario is shorter than average. Perhaps one of the most famous examples in all media aside from Boris and Natasha. But this is a somewhat played-with trope in this case since in overall size, Mario is much bigger due to his stocky build and strong enough to throw heavy objects and enemies with ease, while Peach is slim, dainty, and feminine. Not to mention the ''MarioKart'' series classifies Peach as a lightweight, while Mario is classified as a mediumweight. However, it's still this trope at the core since anytime they're together, she puts her arm around him and when they kiss, she bends down to kiss her heroic plumber.
** Sometimes with his brother Luigi, he alternates between being her size or shorter.
** Princess Daisy is more or less the same height as Peach. Rosalina on the other hand, is much taller (she is approximately the same height as Waluigi). Even more so with Rosalina, who was seen as a giant at the end of both ''Galaxy'' games, and the ''MarioKart'' series games classes her as a heavyweight despite her slender PrincessClassic type delicate build.

shorter, but he is mostly shorter than her. In ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld'', he is the same height as her so they would share the same hitboxes.

Men are usually bigger/taller than women, right? Well, most of the time, but there are cases in which a woman will be taller than her love interest, either because she's unusually tall or because he's unusually short. Sometimes it's both; sometimes the girl is a good deal wider than the guy as well. Generally the first example goes under StatuesqueStunner, while the second goes in BigBeautifulWoman, but either one could also be an AmazonianBeauty.
