* 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.]]

* Mr. Hyde in the film adaptation of ''Film/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen''. [[spoiler: Also the much larger "Super-Hyde" in the film's climax.]]

* 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.

** Attikus is a big fat beast with a prominently large and thick neck but his head is actually comparatively small to the rest of his body.
** El Dragón though not to an exasperatedly comical degree like Montana, has a head that's comparatively small to the rest of his body as well.

\n*A basic principle in art is that human heads are all about the same size, and that height is best communicated by the size of the head compared to total height (about 6.5 heads for an average man), and in the pre-photography days, it was common for portraits to exaggerate the stature of the men who commissioned them by manipulating head size. George Washington was a particular abuser of this, and some of his portraits depict him as over 7 feet tall.

* The Meat Head enemy in ''[[VideoGame/RyuGaGotoku Yakuza: Dead Souls]]'' has a ridiculously buff, armored upper body, with his only weakness being his normal-sized head and the surrounding tissue.

* Comics in general: During TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks this was a very common art style. Some characters were designed during this period, thus it's part of their character design, others used to have normal proportions, but DependingOnTheArtist got drawn this way.
