** [[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.

* Videogame/Pirate101: Most of the larger companions will appear only slightly larger than the player when not in combat.

* ''VideoGame/Rayman2'': Razorbeard's giant robot, Grolgoth, is at first shown to be at least 10 times larger than Rayman, and big enough for Razorbeard to be able to fit inside a small cockpit on Grolgoth's belly. But in a later stage of the boss fight, Grolgoth is inexplicably only about 3 times the size of Rayman, and the said cockpit seems smaller than Rayman's torso.

* ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross''
** Not only the Zentradi, but the HumongousMecha they pilot, have severe scale issues. A Valkyrie ought to be able to fit into the pilot's compartment of a Glaug or Regult. This is because the Zentradi themselves are at roughly the same height as a Valkyrie (the Battroid mode being explicitly created so that humans could fight on an equal footing with Zentradi soldiers). However, when a Valkyrie and a Regult or Glaug are shown on screen at the same time, they are shown as around the same size -- the Zentradi mecha should tower over the Valkyrie, being at the very minimum half again as high.
** Later series got better. In ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', macronized Clan Clan, whose [[HumongousMecha Quedluun]]-[[PoweredArmor Rau]] was out of commission, has donned FAST pack and applique armor of a VF-25 over her spacesuit as if it was a PoweredArmor.

* The [[AIIsACrapshoot Sentinels]] from ''ComicBook/XMen''. They can be taller than a house or just twice as large as a normal human. Of course, there are dozens upon dozens of different Sentinels in the 'verse, so it only really becomes JustForFun/{{egregious}} when it's the ''same'' Sentinel.

* Everyone agrees that ''ComicBook/IronMan'' foe Boris "The Titanium Man" Bullski is a very large man, but just how big varies issue to issue and sometimes panel to panel. "Last Tango With The Titanium Man" has an especially egregious example, in which Boris is simultaneously larger than a city bus, yet able to fit into an armchair in his hideout.

* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' gives us Koichi Hirose from ''Diamond is Unbreakable'' (Part 4). He is officially 157cm/5'1". However, he's always drawn ''much'' shorter than that, as though he is 3'0". When Tamami Kobayashi is introduced, he is clearly a tall and muscular man, even though he's suppose to be 153cm/5'0". He's officially shorter than Koichi, but comparing their heights in the manga clearly contradicts this. Strangely enough, Tamami is later drawn ''nearly as short as Koichi''. There is no explanation for this in the story. The same thing happened to Toshikazu Hazamada, who is 165cm/5'4". First, he appears [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/jjba/images/9/93/Toshikazutall.png much taller]] than his official height, then [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/jjba/images/d/d6/Hazamada2.png shrinks]] later on, going straight into YouDontLookLikeYou territory.

A fan theory is that, since the part is told from Koichi's point of view, everyone appears the way he sees them: he thinks of himself as weak and frail, so he sees himself as tiny; originally he's scared of Tamami and Toshikazu, so they look larger, but once they're defeated and "on the same level" as he is, he sees them the same way he does himself.



* The CGI Jabba the Hutt seen in the special edition of ''Franchise/StarWars Episode IV: Film/ANewHope'' appears much smaller than the puppet used for the same character in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''. The reason for this is that the scene was originally shot in 1977 with an actor standing in for Jabba, but the scene was removed due to time and budget restraints. When Jabba finally showed up in ''Jedi,'' he was made much bigger than he would have been in the earlier deleted scene, so when that scene was re-instated, the ''Jedi'' Jabba design had to be downsized to fit into the set and choreography correctly.

* 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.
