** Rosalina in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' is shown to be at least as tall as Peach's normal tall size. In the game's ending, Rosalina is shown to be a ''giant'' because she's almost like a god. In the spin off games like ''Mario Kart Wii'', Rosalina is still slightly taller than Peach, but is around the same general size of the whole cast to keep things consistent. Rosalina appears to be much smaller when she became a playable character in [[spoiler: ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld'']].

* The [[Characters/Warhammer40000Astartes Space Marines]] of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' are famously victims of this. DependingOnTheArtist, they can be just about seven feet tall, or in the vicinity of ten feet tall. And that's not even getting into their [[ShouldersOfDoom pauldrons]], which either look impressive or look impressive ''and'' block peripheral vision.

** Eventually an in-canon explanation was given to HandWave the size issues: The average Astartes is around seven and a half feet tall, with some Astartes having reactions to the augmentations that make them ''far'' larger than normal, with one example being Ultramarine Pasanius Lysane, whom is so large that they needed to incorporate Terminator Armour into his wargear, and another being Chapter Master Seydon of the Iron Snakes, whom actually stands over ten feet tall and needed custom PowerArmor, as he's ''too large'' for a larger set of the difficult-to-make Terminator Armor.

* In NorseMythology, in a single myth, a group of gods once take a giant's glove for a hall and use its thumb as a room. Later, they sit at table with the giants, and Thor can easily lift a giant drinking horn. (He can't drain it, but that's magic.)

** This was kind of spurred on by real world changes. A 50 meter monster is huge in mid-twentieth century Tokyo (geographically busy locations tend to have strict building codes), but would look a bit silly in the modern city. Incidentally, the original ''Film/{{Gojira}}'' is a painstakingly accurate snapshot of a city that no longer exists. All the buildings Godzilla destroys were real buildings, down to the little shopping centers.

* In ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'', Nanomech looks about 3 or 4 inches in most shots (a little smaller than Greymatter), but Kevin was able to shoot him out of a regular drinking straw, which would make him less than 1/4 of an inch tall. This is justified however, as the ''[[LiveActionAdaptation Alien Swarm]]'' movie that introduced Nanomech states that one of his powers is the ability to shrink to unknow levels (At least small enough to [[spoiler:fly inside a human brain without injuring it]]).

** In ''Bugsy and Mugsy'', Bugs creates a hole in the floor of a condemned apartment. He's his usual size when outside the hole, but inside he's around the size of a mouse, which is especially noticeable when he's carrying a a magnet almost as big as
him.

* Elliot's size in ''Film/PetesDragon'' frequently keeps changing. In some scenes, he's a big as a house, in others, he's just a bit larger than the humans.

Added DiffLines:

* Tooru's dragon form in ''Manga/KobayashiSanChiNoMaidDragon'' ranges in size from "a small house" to "a single claw is bigger than a car". Justified by the fact that shapeshifting has been established as one of her powers from the very beginning.
