* The ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' comic features huge problems with this, with gigantic characters like Omega Supreme and Metroplex (each well over 100 feet or 30 m tall) would be giants in one scene, and be barely taller than a good-sized Autobot in the next. The cartoon series has this problem, too. Fan consensus about the size inconsistences is "[[BellisariosMaxim Just ignore it]]", as they're aware of the massive FanWank it would entail to explain it. At the beginning of IDW's run, for example, Metroplex was shown to b large enough that he could [[TrampledUnderfoot stomp a single Decepticon flat]] under his foot (so a couple hundred feet tall) but by the time that ''ComicBooks/TransformersDarkCybertron'' happened he'd grown so large that the entire [[CoolShip Rodpod]] (which could easily accommodate half a dozen Autobots with room to spare) could fly into his eye socket without scraping the sides, making Metroplex easily several ''miles'' tall. Similarly, the various [[CombiningMecha Combiners]] like Devastator and Monstructor were originally depicted as being as large as their individual component robots stacked on top of each other, while by the time that [[spoiler: Prowl]] was made Devastator's head he was depicted as growing to several times his normal size in the process.\\\

* 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.]]

** [[spoiler: Star Dream]] is also subject to this. When it's first seen, it's about ten times taller then Kirby. Come the final battle, it's now more then twice the size of the [CoolShip Halberd]. Lastly, when Kirby goes in for the finishing blow on it, it's shrunk to be only slightly larger then the Invader Armor the pink puffball is piloting.

* In ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot'', the Access Ark mothership used by the Haltmann Works Company is very much subject to this, looking to be almost as big as Popstar itself in the opening cutscene, but when you actually enter it in the last level, it's only a fraction of that size.
