Naturally, the CounterTrope of HugeGuyTinyGirl and OneHeadTaller. Can be related to UglyGuyHotWife if the man has cartoonish features while the woman is more realistically proportioned. It may overlap with AmazonianBeauty, StatuesqueStunner, BigBeautifulWoman, or ChubbyMamaSkinnyPapa. MasculineGirlFeminineBoy is a SisterTrope, and the two are often found together. Any time a GiantWoman is in a relationship with a human it is this trope.

* Non-romantic example: 5'10 Creator/TaylorSwift and 5'5 Creator/BrunoMars at the the [[http://www.buzzfeed.com/ryanhatesthis/here-is-a-very-important-reminder-of-how-short-bruno-mars-is#.vrm7GWBVq 2013 MTV Awards]]. It doesn't help that visual tricks make the height difference look ''much'' bigger than it is, such as Taylor wearing heels and a pencil dress that accentuates her height, and the camera angle making poor Bruno look tiny.

* [[LoisMcMasterBujold Miles Vorkosigan]] and... okay, the only adult woman in his life that was not at least OneHeadTaller than his own four-foot-ten-on-a-good-day (147cm) height was [[TheVamp more interested in his foster brother than him]]. The two most notable examples are his first crush Elena Bothari (around 5'10" (178cm)) and the experimental SuperSoldier he rescued and named Taura (around 8' (2.4m)). Speaking of Taura, in the short story ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Winterfair Gifts]]'' a member of House Vorkosigan's personal guard (Armsman Roic, a rather tall and powerfully built fellow by ordinary standards) has an epiphany after coming face to bustline with her and nearly dislocating his arm helping with her luggage when she arrived to attend Miles' wedding.
---> This must be what it's like for M'lord... ''all the time''.
** Cavilo might also count, but she was more of an EnemyMine than a love interest. She tried a few times to use her FemmeFatale wiles on him, but he was too wary (rightfully so) to be truly interested. In their parting exchange, Cavilo remarks that Miles was one of the only men she'd ever met who didn't immediately underestimate her due to her height/gender/beauty.
