* The evil [[GiantWoman giantess]] from DudeWheresMyCar. For the most part she seems to be around 20-25 feet tall, however there are a few inconsistencies. First, she seems to get smaller when she's crawling out of the arcade. Then she gets bigger when she exits. When she devours [[spoiler: Tommy]] she [[SwallowedWhole swallows him whole]] despite the fact that at 25 ft tall she would've needed to [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe bite him in half first.]]

* In Myth/NorseMythology giants vary between "a bit tall" to "literally the size of mountains". Not just a case of the race having wild height variation, either-- the myths have the gods interacting normally with giants that were previously described as towering over them.

* The [[Characters/Warhammer40000Astartes Space Marines]] of ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' 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.
** With the introduction of Primaris Space Marines, who are bigger and stronger than their brothers, makes the scale even wonkier.

** Charlotte Linlin, "Big Mom" is absolutely massive, as her epithet implies, but this varies drastically depending on the scene. She seems to be about Moriah's height on average, (roughly 18 to 22 feet). But other instances, such as her frequent hunger rampages, often amp up her height to towering over many of the buildings in her cities.



*** This is further brought into notice when we encounter an entire alley of wild Charizard. Most of them, even the smallest, are nearly double the size of Ash's at minimum.



** Ash's Gliscor; usually it's about Ash's size, but sometimes it's only half that. In "Familiarity Breeds Strategy!", it was much larger than him.

** Ash's Gliscor; usually it's about Ash's size, but sometimes it's only half that. In "Familiarity Breeds Strategy!", it was much larger than him. Possibly justified in that it had spent time away from Ash in training before it returned, and it was implied that this Gliscor was young when it evolved.

** Since turning into an allicorn, Twilight Sparkle is depicted as slightly taller than the other ponies, though it can vary anywhere between looking only slightly more upright, to coming off as incredibly lanky next to them. Lampshaded in one episode where she takes offence to a incredibly gangly doodle of her by Rainbow Dash.

* The creators of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' have acknowledged several times that they don't use a scale chart. The only rule they follow is a size order for characters on-screen at the same time (i.e. x is bigger than y, y is bigger than z, etc.); how big the size differences are varies based on the needs of the scene. Lapis, for instance, is taller than Amethyst and shorter than Pearl, which means she can go from [[http://40.media.tumblr.com/ceeb0717d47fd0df7e7c212f2097e5d8/tumblr_inline_nqzbmbF2K51syl0hc_1280.png barely above eye-level with Steven]] to almost twice his height. Jasper is big, but can be anywhere from a head taller than Garnet in one shot to one of her arms outmassing Garnet's entire body in [[http://38.media.tumblr.com/0571cc6e940b1863ce4fb36d782f6cc7/tumblr_inline_nl4pdaab7M1qdo426.png another]]. And this isn't even getting into the titanic Fusion Gems - Sugilite's second appearance practically doubled her size for dramatic impact, and Sardonyx starts off being four or five times Steven's height before being large enough to hold him in the palm of her hand. In Yellow Diamond's first appearance, her Pearl comes to [[https://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/steven-universe/images/6/66/Message_Received_310.png/revision/latest?cb=20160923091858 around the height of her knee]], while by her second appearance she's large enough for ''two'' Pearls to [[https://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/steven-universe/images/0/08/That_Will_Be_All_130.png/revision/latest?cb=20170214012304 comfortably rest in the palm of her hand]].

** This isn't limited to Pokemon as occasionally the human character's heights are inconsistent. Misty is sometimes portrayed as a little taller then Ash while sometimes they're the same height.

Lampshaded in one episode where she takes offence to a incredibly gangly doodle of her by Rainbow Dash.


Added DiffLines:

* Most of the characters in ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'' suffer from this due to ever changing designs and character models.
** Dr Neo Cortex is generally depicted as vertically challenged though this can range from merely being below average height but exaggerated by his huge forehead, to being outright puny. Compare scenes of him next to Crash in ''Twinsanity'' to those in ''Tag Team Racing''.
** Coco can either be Crash's BigLittleSister or a teeny little girl almost half his size.
** In Crunch's debut ''The Wrath of Cortex'', he was depicted as gargantuan and almost three times Crash size, by far the largest of Cortex's creations. In most games after he's only a couple of heads taller than Crash and dwarfed by Cortex's previous powerhouses such as Tiny.
