* {{MapleStory}} takes this to a logical extreme, and then some. Gelimer decides to make a "[[spoiler:tiny ship]]" called Black Heaven. [[spoiler:That's right, it's colossal. It's monstrous. It's inconceivable how its construction was even possible. It houses an army of evil robots. And how does it even hold itself in the air? Oh, and to hit the point home, it's first introduced in a Black Heaven cutscene: Flying next to it are more enemy ships, each fairly large, but tiny in comparison. Oh, and that tiny thing in the looming shadow of the Black Heaven? That's ''your airship''.]]
