** Gimli and the halflings seem to change height in some scenes.

** Gimli and the halflings seem to change height in some scenes.[[note]]Due to the height differences between the characters and the actors playing them, Gimli and the hobbits were the right heights to appear on-screen together and seem "correct," but if anyone else was in the frame, they had to cheat the angles.[[/note]]

* Ira Gamagoori from ''Anime/KillLaKill'' [[MemeticMutation has only one set size, and that's "bigger than you"]]. Episode 15 has what's probably the most extreme fluctuation: when the Elite Four are standing in a line shoulder-to-shoulder he seems to be less than twice Nonon's height, whereas just minutes earlier ''his head alone'' was larger than her entire body.

* Ira Gamagoori from ''Anime/KillLaKill'' [[MemeticMutation has only one set size, and that's "bigger than you"]]. In any scene he appears, he's drawn as larger than any other character to varying extents (with just one exception: [[spoiler:where the BigBad towered over him in a display of power]]). Episode 15 has what's probably the most extreme fluctuation: when the Elite Four are standing in a line shoulder-to-shoulder he seems to be less than twice Nonon's height, whereas just minutes earlier ''his head alone'' was larger than her entire body.

* ''Anime/MazingerZ'': The applied scale was not consistent at all, and it could vary from one chapter to another or even in different scenes of the same chapter. Sometimes the HumongousMecha were too big or too tiny, and the human beings and other objects too tiny. In episode 10, a [[{{Robeast}} Mechanical Beast]] grabbed skyscrapers with one of his hands and moved them to elsewhere. Initially his hands seemed as big as the buildings they were carrying, but later on he was just as tall as Mazinger-Z (18 meters), so his hands were way tinier than they should have been.

* 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.

** [[RichBitch Trixie]] [[AsianAirhead Tang]], also not particularly small, is typically depicted as being about a head taller than Timmy, but her height still tends to be inconsistent - she has ranged anywhere from only being about half a head taller than Timmy to being about twice as tall as him.

** [[RichBitch Trixie]] [[AsianAirhead Tang]], also not particularly small, is typically Tang]]'s height relative to Timmy tends to be quite inconsistent. Most of the time she'll be depicted as being about a head taller than Timmy, but her height still tends to be inconsistent - she it has ranged anywhere from Trixie only being about half a head little taller than Timmy him to her being about at least twice as tall as him.

** 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.
