* The Greater Dog of ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' looks like a TopHeavyGuy with gigantic arms and torso, but a tiny head and legs. [[spoiler:Subverted, because it's really a normal-sized dog in some kind of piloted armor suit, meaning that its head is normal for the body it actually ''has''.]]

ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, when a huge creature is shown to have a small head not proportionate to its body. If this creature is on the side of good, it will indicate that this creature is a DumbMuscle, but if it's on the side of evil, it will serve as TheDragon to the BigBad.

Compare: TopHeavyGuy, BigHeadMode, and {{Gonk}}. The exact opposite is WaddlingHead and BigHeadMode. Not to be confused with ShrunkenHead.

* In ''Literature/Worm,'' Lung's head doesn't grow as quickly as the rest of his body when his power activates, resulting in this during prolonged fights.

* One theory about Art/TheSphinx is that it originally had a well-proportioned head, but the face eroded away, so a new, smaller head was carved out of the existing one.
** Specifically, that head was most likely a lion head. If put in a computer simulation and turning time backwards, the Sphinx would have looked into the constellation "Lion" - ''8000 years'' ago.

* ComicBook/ThrudTheBarbarian fitting, since the point of the comic is to parody the BarbarianHero genre.
* The ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'' volume [[Recap/AsterixAndTheRomanAgent "Asterix and the Roman Agent"]] features Magnumopus, a hulking Roman legionaire whose pointed head required a tiny helmet. Convulvulus, the titular agent, uses him as part of his plan to sow discord among the Gauls. He has Magnumopus sneak behind Geriatrix, knock him out with his club, and leave the helmet behind, leaving Geriatrix to believe he was felled by a tiny Roman, confirming the other's belief that the Romans have the magic potion.
* Subverted in ComicBook/TheBoys: as the comic shows the various horrible ways superpowers can backfire without RequiredSecondaryPowers (holding your own eyes that just melted out of your head, for example), one guy is shown with a wizened, shrunken body and [[TheIncredibleHulk an enormous, angular, greenish head.]]

* Ostriches, rheas and emus, whose heads are so small that a 350-lbs ostrich can be blindfolded by putting a paper lunch sack over its head. The extinct elephant birds and moas were even more extreme.
** Just to illustrate how tiny an ostrich's head is, know this: one of an ostrich's eyes is about the same size as its ''entire'' brain.

** Montana is the most notable case of this in the game. He's a mountain of a man whose shoulders, arms, and hands, basically his entire upper body, is absurdly massive. His head however is comically small. This along with his equally small legs makes him what even the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0SE_fhI1N8&t=2m53s game itself notes]] as biologically improbable.
