[[caption-width-right:350:We got BIG trouble![[note]]Clockwise from top left: Article illustration from ''Modern Mechanics and Inventions''; poster for ''Film/AttackOfThe50FootWoman''; Bender and Zoidberg from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''; a parody image from ''Website/{{Cracked}}''; scene from ''[[Film/HoneyIShrunkTheKids Honey, I Blew Up the Kid]]''[[/note]]]]

Because "Attack of the 15.24-[[TheMetricSystemIsHereToStay Meter]] Whatever" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

This is like IncredibleShrinkingMan, except that the [[TransformationRay ray gun]] [[MiracleGroMonster that zapped the character]] was set on "Grow" instead of "Shrink". Now the protagonists have a [[StealthPun huge problem]] to deal with.

For maximum disaster potential, the victim of the growth is usually a pet, wild animal, baby human or other character without a firmly developed sense of morality or sentience who might [[ObliviouslyEvil innocently]] topple the downtown skyscrapers without really meaning it. If the victim is a normal person, the growth process will inevitably [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity fry their synapses]] or they'll [[DrunkWithPower go on a power trip]] with [[AGodAmI delusions of Godhood]], requiring the hero of the story to find a way to put them back to normal just the same.

This generally violates the SquareCubeLaw, but [[RuleOfCool that's okay]]. For humans, expect MagicPants to be in effect -- can't have a giant ''naked'' person, after all. The MoralGuardians would freak.

Differs from {{Shapeshifting}} in that the character generally just becomes a much bigger version of whatever they were before. Pet monkeys and lizards, however, tend to seamlessly morph into either Film/KingKong or Franchise/{{Godzilla}} knock-offs along the way, no matter what their original species were. (And if ''that'' happens, expect two or more {{Japanese tourist}}s to shout "[[ShoutOut Ahh]]! [[Franchise/{{Godzilla}} Gojira]]!" and run away.)

Episodes of this kind are quite likely to include a StockParody or {{Homage}} of King Kong: The 50-foot whatever [[ClimbingClimax will climb a tower]], often with a DamselInDistress in hand and airplanes buzzing like flies. Imitators often omit the DownerEnding where Film/KingKong falls to his death, though. See KingKongClimb for examples.

If the hero wants to fight back, he may be in for a ColossusClimb, if deploying HumongousMecha is out of the question. Counterattacking from the air is another option, but risks invoking HelicopterFlyswatter.

A standard plot for animated shows, but [[SpecialEffectFailure tough to pull off seriously for live action]]. {{BMovie}}s latched on to this trope for a time. After all, why settle for the standard-size MonsterOfTheWeek when you could have a [[BiggerIsBetter giant one]]? Advances in special effects technology have kept this from becoming Discredited.

* CFL (a British sofa company) have parodied this trope to extremes in their adverts with a ''Giantess''.

* Lee's Dungarees in their "Don't flinch." campaign had the "90-foot-Babe" Natalia Adarvez walking through a city, stepping on a Taxi, ripping power lines, towards a high-rise (or so it seems for the normal-sized peeps) where she picks out the window of a nice young man (the size of her finger) and gives him her phone number.

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Episode 3 of the OAV ''Armored Troopers J-Pheonix PF Lips Team'' features a giant android girl named Kokoro chained to a cave wall. Needless to say, this episode focuses on two of the main characters helping to set her free.
* Regular Titans in ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' are about this size, although there are a few even larger ones that are so tall they can look over the 50 meter (about 164 feet) high walls the remnants of humanity built to keep them out.
** Also some who are much smaller (the smallest Titans average at about "just" three metres), who mostly hang around the larger ones for scraps or get into places too cramped for bigger Titans (meaning there are pretty much no safe hiding spaces).
* The first opening for ''LightNovel/{{Bakemonogatari}}'' features Hitagi as a giant whose footsteps can take up city intersections. [[SurrealThemeTune This has nothing to do with her arc.]]
* ''Manga/{{Bokurano}}'' has a group of 15 kids pilot a 500 meters tall robot... against other 500 meters tall robots... in a tournament where the fates of little over 32000 universes are at stake.
* The anime of ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' featured this with (what else?) the Big Card, whose most malign effect was visited upon a cat (it seemed perfectly content at schoolbus-size.) However, the Big Card was needed in that same episode to fight the giant dragon, which Sakura's friend was describing [[RewritingReality in the book form of the Create card]], and which was preparing to attack Toemeda. Sakura grew to giant size to fight the dragon, and, miraculously, no one noticed.
* Though not all measure up to Fifty feet, the Awakened Beings of ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' are all fairly massive, the smallest standing at least 18-20 feet.
* The ''{{Ecchi}}'' comedy ''Manga/{{Colorful}}''. In one episode, there is a movie about a giant man with a camera. [[spoiler: He shrinks back to normal when he spots a [[PantyShot pantyshot]].]] In a later episode, there's a [[HugeSchoolgirl 50 foot]] [[{{joshikousei}} high school girl]].
* One of [[RubberMan 00]][[MasterOfDisguise 7's]] abilities in ''Manga/{{Cyborg 009}}'', though he only used it once when he and other cyborgs were under attack of cyborg animals.
* Most of the Akuma in ''Manga/DGrayMan'' are roughly human-sized, but when a ton of level 3s are combined, they turn into a skyscraper-sized black giant of death referred to as a level 3.5. Naturally, one of them wound up fighting General Tiedoll, who turned his [[EmpathicWeapon Innocence]] into a [[WhenTreesAttack wooden]] {{mecha}} to fight it.
* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' is replete with examples of this, with several of the good guy and BigBad title creatures taking on titanic proportions at one time or another.
* [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Saiyans]] in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' have the ability to turn into [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent giant were-monkeys]] during the full moon if they have a tail. Piccolo and a one time villain namčkian from one of the movies, Slug, have also displayed the ability to make themselves grow to gigantic sizes.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'':
** Lullaby was huge in the manga. He's noticeably even ''larger'' in the anime.
** Also Makarov. His Titan magic allows him to change his size at will.
* In an episode of ''Anime/FlintTheTimeDetective'', a Time Shifter causes Sara to grow to giant size.
* Various ''Francise/{{Gundam}}'' series usually feature extremely large robots, that dwarf the "normal" mecha. Funny enough, those larger mecha are typically stated to be 40 meters by WordOfGod, while Gundams are 18 meters (normally), but the large mecha are actually at least 4 times bigger than the protagonist's, making it just as much a case of SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale.
** Anime/MobileSuitGundam, the original, introduced this with Big Zam, a huge cannon with legs.
** [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]] had Psyco Gundam, a much bigger version of Gundam, painted black.
** ZZ Gundam had the return of the Psyco Gundam and the Psyco Gundam Mark II.
** Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn has a huge Zeong-like armor for Full Frontal's Mobile Suit. That armor's fist was just as big as Unicorn itself!
** Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny introduced the Destroy Gundams, expies of Big Zam and Psyco Gundam combined.
** 00 had ''several''. Ali's Agrissa during the battle in the Taklamakan Desert, the Alvatore from the season 1 finale, the Trilobyte from Season 2, and a few others...
** Anime/GundamBuildFighters had a scenario that actually made sense in-series (and wouldn't be physically improbable outside the series either). Halfway through the show, the normal 1/144 sized Gunpla are facing... a 1/48 scale Zaku, which turns out to be surprisingly tough for a Zaku. All of those Gunpla appearing in the show are ''real-life toys produced and sold by Bandai'', including the 1/48 scale Zaku.
* Let's not forget ''Anime/GurrenLagann''. It went from the 50 ft tall variety in the beginning all the way to the size of a galaxy! What can you do when your opponent is also that size? Obviously you throw said galaxies at them.
** Super Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann is stated to be roughly 3,5% of the size of the observable universe. Its only weapon? A huge energy-drill that's 10 times bigger than the thing itself. The Anti-Spiral counters by growing to 3,5% the size of the observable universe and wielding a 10 times as big drill... Yes, the final battle has over 77% of the observable universe occupied by mecha and their weapons!
* In one damnation sequence from ''Anime/HellGirl'', both Enma Ai and Kikuri are super-sized. They're mocking the victim's desire to be a "big shot".
* The fifth ''LightNovel/IsItWrongToTryToPickUpGirlsInADungeon'' novel has an aptly named Goliath as its boss. [[spoiler:It falls onto the ceiling of the [[BreatherLevel 18th floor]], and attacks the adventurers.]]
* ''Anime/JungleDeIkou'' ends with Mii turning into a giantess to stop Ongo from destroying the world.
* One episode of ''Manga/KimbaTheWhiteLion'' is titled [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "The Gigantic Grasshopper"]].
* This happened to Kankichi Ryotsu in one chapter and anime episode of ''Manga/{{Kochikame}}''.

* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha''
** ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' also had an episode where the adorable little kitten was enlarged into [[MegaNeko an adorable giant kitten]] by the [[GottaCatchThemAll collectible]] PlotCoupon. A previous episode had a cute puppy getting enlarged as well, though that one's giant form was less cute and more [[{{Hellhound}} demonic-looking]].
** Chapter 48 of ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'' reveals that [[spoiler:one of Fabian's devils]] could grow to the size of a small house.
* ''Anime/{{Macross}}'':
** ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'': The point of the HumongousMecha is that the Earth forces knew the Zentraedi aliens coming to claim the SDF-1 would fall under this trope, and built them so they could fight the invaders at their own scale.
*** You don't really get the sense of scale until you see Breetai and his minions (none of whom are wearing their PoweredArmor) fighting against Hikaru and Max... while the latter two are still in their Valkyries.
*** ... and Breetai's ''still'' taller than them! He's ''big'' even for a Zentraedi, though (if the average 30-feet-tall Zentraedi warrior is equivalent to a 6' human, Breetai's easily 6'7" to 7' proportionally); most other Zentradi are as big or slightly smaller than a full Battroid-form Valkyrie.
** In ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'', the trope is gleefully subverted as the Zentraedi have become part of accepted human society... and many of them still spend most of their times as 10-meter-tall people who still do simple stuff like farming. A highlight is two humans hanging out with a Zentraedi at a mixed-size mall... and in order to be at eye-level with her, the humans are on a ''third-story balcony''.
** That said, full-sized Zentraedi seem to be fairly rare in colony fleets outside of the Macross Frontier fleet, as the majority of "cultured" Zentraedi seem to prefer shrinking themselves to human-size. The Anime/{{Macross 7}} fleet had no full-sized Zentraedi other than Exedol, and the Zentraedi-exclusive Macross 5 fleet had none either. "Cultured" Zentraedi living at full size are apparently so rare that even Mylene Jenius, half-Zentraedi herself, had never met one and was shocked to do so.
*** There's also Mylene's sister Emilia, who must have macronised herself only recently, since Mylene was surprised to see her at full size when they met up again.
*** Which makes sense, since by being probably dozens of times a normal human's mass, full-sized Zentraedi would use dozens of times a normal human's resources in food, air, and space, which are rather valuable commodities in a self-contained environment like say... a ''space ship'' (let's not even get into why the Protoculture thought making their space-faring warrior race over-sized was a good idea to begin with...).
*** Background material also indicates that full-sized Zentraedi are not permitted to set foot on Earth after the first series, though "micronized" Zentraedi are perfectly fine. Apparently Earth got fed up with Zentraedi revolts after a while and wanted an easier time of keeping dissidents under control.
** Besides the Zentraedi, ''Macross Frontier'' also has the Vajra, who are basically BigCreepyCrawlies InSpace, with the largest ones bigger than most capital ships.
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima?'' episode 20 has Evangeline turning giant. She's not aware of anything she's doing, and changes back at the end of the day.
* ''Manga/MaiOtome'' essentially qualifies for this in the late episodes, when [[spoiler:Nina Wong]] uses the Harmonium and grows into a several-hundred-foot-tall shadowy version of [[spoiler:herself]]. The physical nature of the transformation/manifestation is debatable, but ''cities'' get crushed, hinting at plenty of mass.
* Many ''Anime/MazingerZ'' {{Robeast}} could switch sizes (the first was Baikong 09). In an early episode, [[BigBad Dr. Hell]] built a size-changing ray and turned [[TheDragon Baron Ashura]] in a giant with it.
* One episode of ''Anime/MonColleKnights'' is specifically titled "Attack of the 50-Foot Lovestar" (for the dub anyway), and has the normally fist-sized Lovestar grow huge after drinking some water near a farming village.
* Some of the ''Manga/{{Mushishi}}'' creatures-of-the-episode were quite large. The dying swamp, in particular.
* ''Manga/MyBrideIsAMermaid'' has this happen to Nagasumi, averting MagicPants in the process.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'':
** The very first scene of the series is of a giant Nine Tailed Demon Fox attacking the Hidden Leaf Village then being [[SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan magically sealed inside the title character.]] We are later introduced to the other 8 Bijuu demons, all of which are gigantic in their own right. [[spoiler:And ''then'' we're introduced to the Tailed Beast's progenitor, the [[EldritchAbomination 10-Tails]], which is ''at least'' three times the size of the other Tailed Beasts in its first form alone, and gets even bigger as it advances through its subsequent forms.]]
** Summoning Jutsu allows you to call forth giant beasts to attack enemies on your behalf, providing you have a contract with them. The actual size varies both from species to species and creature to creature, from normal sized dogs to "Boss" Snakes, Toads and Slugs that tower over tall buildings.
** One of the Akimichi clan's abilities is the ability to grow to an incredible height. It's firstly demonstrated by Chouji's father Chouza, who turns into a giant and stomps on enemy ninja, and then by Chouji himself in the fight against Jirobo where he becomes so huge, ''his body occupies a clearing''.
** The purpose of Pein's Animal Path is to invoke this trope.
* ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion The End of Evangelion]]'' takes this trope to the LogicalExtreme: [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Attack Of The]] '''[[SquareCubeLaw 1200 KILOMETER]]''' [[InnocentFanserviceGirl Naked]] [[ApocalypseMaiden Girl]]!
* Episode 4 of ''Anime/OkusamaWaMahouShoujo'' features a giant teddy bear walking through the town. It's [[SubvertedTrope soon revealed]] that it was only a model of the town in Cruje's room.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'':
** This is the essence of [[RubberMan Luffy's]] [[SuperMode Gear Third]]. Although he hasn't turned into a full-sized giant as of yet, he can expand parts of his body to the point of outclassing regular giants - who themselves measure at least 200 feet.
** In the Dressrosa arc, Pica is an already naturally towering man, but thanks to his Devil Fruit that allows him to assimilate and merge with stone, he can become truly ''gigantic''.
** Filler character Lily Enstomach is a giant, but she has eaten a Devil Fruit that allows her to shrink in size at will, so the trope is naturally invoked when she returns to her true size.
* The final battle of ''Anime/OvermanKingGainer'' features an Overman-sized [[spoiler:Overdevil-controlled Gainer]].
* In one episode of ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'', Stocking turns into a giant as a result of some magically fattening sweets.
** God descends from Heaven as a pair of stockinged thighs so tall the clouds obscure everything above the garter belt, crushing the ground beneath spiked heels.
* A couple episodes of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' had the cast encountering Pokémon the size of buildings.
** Ash's Treecko and a Gulpin becoming giant due to some AppliedPhlebotinum.
** Another time involved an amusement park island with Pokémon-shaped automatons that were several times the natural size of the critters they emulated - and the cast was stuck ON the island for the duration of the episode.
** The giant tribal marked Alakazam and Gengar, and the giant similarly marked Jigglypuff Ash and Co. have to summon to sing them back into containment.
** The episode where a Tentacruel grows to a huge size and destroys a city. Misty talks it down and convinces him and his goes back into the ocean. Later in the series, Tentacruel is shown to be, in reality, a fraction of the size.
* In ''Manga/PokemonGoldenBoys'' Gold encounters a giant ''Sudowoodo''.
* In ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', the forest of Ryugenzawa is home to a variety of [[MisplacedWildlife exotic animals]], such as koalas and platypuses, who have grown to titanic size (think "rabbits the size of grizzlies" and "flying squirrels the size of fighter jets") due to the magical properties of the Water of Life --itself a product of the magical moss that grows on the snout of the mountain-sized [[{{Orochi}} Yamata No Orochi]].
* Chiri from ''Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei'' grows into a giant in one episode to fight an alien invasion in a parody of the ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' movie. There's also a Giantess PantyShot, but only because it was relevant to the episode's theme.
* Episode 30 of ''Manga/SgtFrog'' introduced the Flash Spoon, a device that could make its user grow to enormous size. In the first half of episode 57, Keroro uses it to one-up Viper the Elder when the villain grows to giant size in a last-ditch effort at beating the Keroro Platoon. In the second half of the episode, a trip to the Nishizawa Group's private island (while waiting for the effects of the Flash Spoon on Keroro to wear off) results in a cuttlefish, a crab, and a turtle being turned into giant monsters by the spoon, while the rest of the cast also grows in an effort to stop them (except Dororo, who doesn't get his hands on the Flash Spoon until the batteries have run out).
** The same thing happened in the dub, only it was called [=SpoonWow=] (made in Germany, you know the Germans always make good stuff).
* Mana Eimiya, the titular ''Manga/SuperDreadnoughtGirl4946'', stands at 49M and 46CM and fights alien monsters of comparable size.
* The plot for ''UG♥Ultimate Girls''. Three High School girls grow to 100 foot stature, then fight the monster of the week. Lather, rinse, repeat. However, subverting the MagicPants trope is the whole point of the show.
* In ''LightNovel/UnlimitedFafnir'', the dragons that attacked humanity are huge, standing several hundred feet/meters tall.
* Early on in ''Manga/ViolinistOfHameln'', the [[TheDragon Demon King Drum]] assumes his true form --as a colossal, multiheaded dragon-- and attacks the royal city of Sforzendo. At one point during the battle, [[{{Jerkass}} Hamel]] proposes magically enlarging [[TheChick Flute]] so she engages Drum in a {{Kaiju}} battle, but is shot down immediately when they realize the equally-colossal [[PantyShot upskirt view]] she'd give the whole city.
* One of Keima's captured targets in ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'' grew enormous due to her desire to [[spoiler: become "bigger" than a dojo leader.]]
* Manga/{{Yaiba}} has the Orb of the Great Buddha, which can make him grow to gigantic size. At least once he grew so big [[UpToEleven that his head was out of Earth's Atmosphere]]. After few seconds [[RuleOfFunny he started choking and was forced to shrink back to a more manageable size]].
* ''Anime/YuGiOhCapsuleMonsters'' has the Five-Headed Dragon, Seven-Armed Fiend and Reshef the Dark Being, all of whom are villains or controlled by villains.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Has happened to nearly every major character in Franchise/TheDCU at least once during UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|OfComicBooks}}.
** ComicBook/JimmyOlsen's transformation into Turtle-Man is perhaps the most ridiculous example.
** There's Atom Smasher (formerly of the [[ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica JSA]]), the villainess Giganta, and Apache Chief from ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'', later reimagined as Longshadow on ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''. Atom Smasher is somewhat unique in that his powers are more limited than most examples -- his maximum height is well below 50 feet, probably closer to 30.
** DC also has Elasti-Girl of the Comicbook/DoomPatrol who has straight growth (and shrinking) as her power as opposed to the RubberMan powers her name would normally suggest.
** The Comicbook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}} has Colossal Boy. (In the latest reboot of the series, he insists he should be called "Micro Lad", as he's naturally 50 feet tall and has ''shrinking'' powers.) A previous version of the Legion had Shrinking Violet gain growth powers and call herself "Le'''vi'''athan".
** One of Franchise/{{Superman}}'s Silver Age enemies was [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys Titano the Super Ape]], a giant gorilla with Kryptonite vision.
** An issue of ''ComicBook/AmbushBug'' features a giant koala.
** An issue of ''Lobo'' combined this with MarshmallowHell.
* ''{{Creator/Marvel|Comics}}''
** There's Giant-Man/Yellowjacket, Giant-Girl/Wasp (Comicbook/MarvelAdventures has her specifically as the former, the latter gains the ability much later), ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} (who could do it as Goliath), Black Goliath (who died in ''Comicbook/CivilWar''), Atlas of the {{Thunderbolts}}, and Stature of the Comicbook/YoungAvengers, amongst others.
** The [[Comicbook/MsMarvel2014 second Ms. Marvel, Kamala Khan]], is a polymorph who's capable of this by issue #3.
** [[http://www.coverbrowser.com/image/spider-girl/90-1.jpg One issue]] of ''ComicBook/SpiderGirl'', in a clear parody of the whole thing, has a cover with the heroine, grown to ridiculous size, with her parents in the foreground throwing out lines that would have been on any Silver Age Superman cover: "She may be a 50 foot monster, but '''she's still our daughter!'''" In the actual issue, this turned out to be part of a LotusEaterMachine a villain stuffed her into.
** Used hilariously in an issue of ''ComicBook/SpiderManLovesMaryJane'', in Mary Jane's dream.
** Comicbook/CaptainAmerica foe the [[http://marvel.wikia.com/Lyle_Dekker_(Earth-616) Ameridroid]], a 20-foot tall KillerRobot that looks exactly like Captain America, possessed by the mind of a [[StupidJetpackHitler Nazi scientist]].
* In "Webcomic/BioApocalypse" we have [[spoiler: the fetus monster (in this case, 50 miles tall).]] May also qualify as an EldritchAbomination.
* In the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer: Season Eight'' comics, Dawn is turned into a giant, presumably as an effect of losing her virginity to a "thricewise" [[spoiler:but actually due to cheating on the thricewise with his roommate, so he cursed her in retribution]].
** Played straight where Dawn goes on a rampage stomping vampires in Tokyo and [[InstantAwesomeJustAddMecha battling a giant robot version of herself]] while Andrew gives her tactics advice from a helicopter, [[LampshadeHanging stating that]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny this was the moment he was]] ''[[CrowningMomentOfFunny born]]'' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny for]].
* One ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' strip has Calvin imagining drinking a magic elixir, growing to over 300 feet and rampaging through a town. The town was only a model built in his sandbox, but his mom is not amused when he asks for replacements for the toy cars that were crushed in his rampage.
** One story arc had Calvin imagining he grows so large that he outgrows the earth.
* Meriem runs afoul of a nest of giant spiders in ''ComicBook/{{Cavewoman}}: Deadly Venom''.
* A number of ''ComicStrip/{{TheFarSide}}'' strips feature giant monsters, including one skyscraper-sized mailman and a group of dogs rallying to save the city.
* AC Comics, in general, has nearly half of its female characters able to turn into giantesses. This is explicitly Fanservice; their first giantess character was so popular that they ran with it. In particular Tara Freemont and Garganta of ''ComicBook/{{Femforce}}'' have this as their superpower.
* In the issue #33 of ''ComicStrip/{{Futurama}}'' Amy accidentally spritzes herself with a less than refreshing enlarging spray that turn her gradually in a giantess and start to destroying the city.
%%* Titan of ''Comicbook/JusticeMachine''.
* In ''ComicBook/LockeAndKey'', Dodge uses the [[CastingAShadow Shadow Crown]] to turn himself into a [[BuffySpeak colossal...wolf...thing]] and attack Kinsey and Bode. Prompting [[GentleGiant Tyler]] to use the Giant Key, growing himself to the size of a house. One hell of a fistfight ensues.
* The ''NationalLampoon'' did a comic-book parody of the genre called "Attack of the Sizeable Beasts", where a well-intentioned scientist's growth-hormone test animals get loose. Not monstrously big, just...bigger than normal. A really large raccoon falls out of a tree and dents a car, a remarkably large bird flies off with a baby's sweater, that sort of thing. They don't wreak havoc so much as a low level of annoyance.
* Recurring villain Zoster of ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' in his last appearance stole [[PhysicalGod Xadhoom]]'s powers and use them to become as big as the '''SUN'''. How many foot are those? [[spoiler:Fortunately it was all a plan of Xadhoom that she created before dying. In fact it was the last appearance of Zoster because the experiment killed him]].
* A ray gun operated through an altered blueprint makes Bubbles and Talking Dog grow giant size in ''ComicBook/ThePowerpuffGirls'' story "Big Bubbles' Blues" (issue #61, DC run). Earlier on in "Blowing Bubbles" (issue #9), the sugar in Bubbles' gum and the Chemical X in her bloodstream cause her to grow as well and giving her the adhesive properties of bubble gum.
* The first ''[[Comicbook/TheSimpsons Simpsons Comics]]'' book involved Homer being on the receiving end of [[MiracleGroMonster one of Mr. Burns' experimental growth rays]]. He ended up rampaging through Springfield until a dose of an experimental formula returned him to normal.
* Dr. Manhattan from ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}'' can boost his size to become bigger. ''Much'' bigger.
** Actually semi-justified in Manhattan's case; he rebuilt a body for himself after the accident, so the fact that he made it human-sized is largely nostalgia/convenience.
* Happens in [[ComicBook/WilqSuperbohater Opole]] rather regularly. Most cases are caused by Doctor Wyspa who, being an avid wargamer, loves humongous killer robots; Franchise/{{Godzilla}} also happened to visit the city at least once.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* the [[WebAnimation/HelpMeDoctorHazama Help Me! Dr.Hazama]] fanfic known as ''Disaster Piece Theatre'' has [[spoiler: Professor Kokenoe grow to gigantic sizes after her rage consumes her. She]] is brought down after Ragna shrinks [[spoiler: her]] with an antidote. It was, indeed, a strange day.
* One ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' fanfic, poking fun at all the references other fanfics make to Digimon games and anime, took this, RevengeOfTheSequel, and ColonCancer UpToEleven with the game-within-a-show-within-a-fic [[LongTitle Digimon Explorers: Heroes Of The Space Time Continuum, Part Sixteen: The Brave New Digital World: The Attack of The Seventy Foot Kunemon From Beyond The Stars]]. Some members of Website/FanFictionDotNet are trying to turn this into MemeticMutation, but it's not catching on since no one can remember the name. Some other members are thinking about writing DE:HOTSTC:TBNDW:TAOFTSFKFBTS because this trope can (and does) get played for RuleOfFunny a lot in the Digimon fandom.
* ''FanFic/AttackOfThe100FootMegGriffin''. ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.
* In ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'', the four are at one point shrunk to six inches high. George transforms himself to normal height (unfortunately, his clothing doesn't, no MagicPants for him), which makes him ''seem'' like he's grown to about 400 feet high in relation to the others. Whether he can really grow that tall remains to be seen.
* One ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fanfic set in a reality where a wizard's "coming of age" had a tiny chance of changing them into a magical creature featured Hermione turning into a giantess. Needless to say, sexual frustration abounded.
* In ''FanFic/FantasyOfUtterRidiculousness,'' a group of fairies are transformed into giants by some wind-borne magic powder. It doesn't increase their threat level all that much, however; they still get thrashed just as easily by the story's protagonists as they would by Reimu or Marisa.
* Eggman's [[DoomsdayDevice Doomsday Machine]] from ''[[FanFic/MarioAndSonicHeroesUnite Mario and Sonic: Heroes Unite!]]'' is described by the {{narrator}} as being "over 50 feet in height." The heroes were left utterly speechless by it.
* [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/67352/fluttersized Fluttersized]] is all about [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Fluttershy]] becoming huge after a misfired spell by Twilight. There's even an AlternateContinuity where she gets "Discorded" into a mean persona and starts rampgaing through Canterlot, Godzilla-style. She even fights a giant Rainbow Dash!
* The ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6748504/1/Attack-of-the-50-Ft-Half-Klingon Attack of the 50-Ft Half-Klingon]]'' has an oversized B'Elanna Torres appearing in the Captain Proton holodeck program to wreck revenge on a philandering Tom Paris.
* In the Blog/ReadingRainbowverse, Bonbon makes a giant rock candy golem to fight Pinkie.
* Examples from Fanfic/{{the Calvinverse}}:
** Taken UpToEleven in ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesIILostAtSea'' - the sea monster is said to dwarf the ''Empire State Building!''
** Chapter 8 of ''Fanfic/ThePezDispenserAndTheReignOfTerror'' has a giant robot attack the town.
* The story ''Rainbow Dash: The Big Battle'' from the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic MLP:FiM]] fanfic collection ''FanFic/TheMonsterMash'' features both a giant salamander and a giant Rainbow Dash.
* A giant Discord razes Ponyville for much of the ''WebVideo/PonyDotMov'' series. In ''SWAG.MOV'', Rainbow Dash grows to an equal height to battle him.
* [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9886932/1/Attack-of-the-50-Bit-Nicelander Attack of the 50-Bit Nicelander]]is what happens you combine [[Disney/WreckitRalph Nicelander Gene]] with malfunctioning power-ups from Sugar Rush. Things are funny up until the point everyone learns that the game can not handle Gene's added bit-space and might malfunction because of it. With many non-Fix-it-Felix Jr. characters blaming him for the inevitable crash, Gene actually goes on a rampage in Niceland after suffering a breakdown and nearly takes our Felix and Ralph in the process.
* ''Fanfic/ItsADangerousBusinessGoingOutYourDoor'': One of these poses the final threat that Applejack, Rainbow Dash, and Rarity face in their quest -- [[spoiler: a World Snake]]. While exact measurements are never given, one fan did the math based on the in-universe estimates, and calculated that this creature is roughly the size of ''Guam''.
* In ''Fanfic/TealovesSteamyAdventure'', Tealove's train trip ends abruptly when a giant turtle attacks it. [[RandomEventsPlot Like many things in this fic]], the giant turtle gets no explanation whatsoever.
* In ''Fanfic/TheLegendOfTotalDramaIsland'', a giant lamprey attacks Leshawna, and Chris subsequently refers to the incident as "the [[CapitalLettersAreMagic Attack of the Fifty-Foot Lamprey]]". [[note]]It was really “only” about 10 feet long, as Cody points out, but a subsequent comment by Chef suggests that fifty-footers do exist.[[/note]]
* ''Roleplay/DemigodPower'':
** The Colchian Dragon is depicted as a large, legless serpent with a head the size o an eighteen-wheeler. Its habitat was Crater Lake, one of the deepest lakes in the United States, and we never saw it's entire body.
** Cetus definitely qualifies, being even larger.
* [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9357026/1/WaterBender-s-Giant-Adventure One story]] of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' has Katara being jealous of Aang's new growth spurt and takes a potion to get her to his height. But she ends up taking too much, causing her to grow 40 feet tall and being mistaken for a monster. Near the end of the story, Aang himself takes the potion and grows to her height to calm her down.

* Willie the Giant in the "Mickey and the Beanstalk" scene of ''Disney/FunAndFancyFree''.
* Ursula grows to giant size after she steals Triton's trident in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Minions}}'', [[spoiler:Kevin is turned into a giant by one of Herb's inventions, and uses his newfound size to save the day.]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/MonstersVsAliens'', the leading woman is turned into a 50 foot (well, 49-foot, 11 and 1/2-inch) woman by being doused with [[ImportedAlienPhlebotinum Quantonium]]. Naturally...
** The same film also features Insectosaurus, a 350-ft grub worm [[{{Kaiju}} from Japan (where else?)]].
* A ShoutOut in ''WesternAnimation/{{Planet 51}}'' as there's a manual about how to handle yourself when a giant woman attacks with a picture similar to the [[Film/AttackOfThe50FootWoman poster above]] on its cover.
* The main characters in ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek 2}}'' bake a giant gingerbread man named Mongo to lay siege to the castle.
** And in the Shrek prequel ''WesternAnimation/PussInBoots'' the Mother of All Gooses (well, one Golden Goose) rampages through a Spanish town.
* ''WesternAnimation/SinbadLegendOfTheSevenSeas'' has [[BigBad Eris, Goddess of Chaos]]. She's a little different in that she [[{{Sizeshifter}} intentionally switches between being normal size and 50 foot size with no problem]]. It seems to mostly be for the sake of intimidation and just because she can, as she favors [[BatmanGambit manipulating people]] and sending the occasional minion over stomping on random things herself.
* In ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3'', when Andy is playing with his toys in the HappierTimesMontage, we see his little sister stumbling into his room. Andy immediately spins a story around this situation and calls Molly a "50-foot baby from outer space on a rampage".

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Trope gets its name from ''Film/AttackOfThe50FootWoman'', a 1958 B-Movie about a wealthy socialite who has a close encounter with a giant alien, grows to the titular height, and has her revenge on her philandering husband. Known for its [[SpecialEffectFailure not-so-special effects]] and famous poster, it has become a [[SoBadItsGood cult classic]]. Remade as a MadeForTVMovie for [=HBO=] starring Creator/DarylHannah.
** Interestingly, the famous poster used as the page image actually depicts the woman as around 200 feet tall. I guess she just wasn't big enough for the poster artist?
** ''Attack of the 60-foot Centerfold''. Need I say more?
** ''Manga/LuckyStar'' has a ShoutOut to this in the form of CovertPervert Hiyori fantasizing Minami and Yutaka as SchoolgirlLesbians, one of the fantasies being a 50-foot [[IllGirl Yut]][[OlderThanTheyLook aka]] posing just like the original.
** ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' made a ShoutOut to the movie with Izzy doing the same pose.
* Giant monsters were the stock in trade of director Creator/BertIGordon, better known as Mr. B.I.G. He directed many of the 1950s radioactive monster movies, including ''Film/TheAmazingColossalMan'', ''Film/EarthVsTheSpider'', and ''Film/BeginningOfTheEnd'' (about giant grasshoppers). In the 1970s he did two more films in this vein, ''Empire of the Ants'' and ''Film/TheFoodOfTheGods'' very loosely based on works by Creator/HGWells.
** ''The Amazing Colossal Man'' (mentioned above) might just as well be called ''Attack of the 60-Foot Man'', and it came out in 1957, the year before the trope-namer.
* An entertaining example comes from the climax of ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'', when BigBad Gozer makes the Busters choose a form for the monster it will summon to destroy New York City. While the other Ghostbusters try to empty their minds, Ray tries to think of the most harmless thing he can imagine: the mascot for Stay-Puft Marshmallows. Which results in a giant, grinning, sailor-hat wearing humanoid monster made of marshmallows stomping through Manhattan.
** They turn it right around in the sequel, when the Ghostbusters themselves ''[[Awesome/{{Ghostbusters}} bring the freaking Statue of Liberty to life]]'' [[ThePowerOfRock using Jackie Wilson's "Higher and Higher"]], and use it to break into the art museum to stop Vigo the Carpathian from coming back to life.
* In ''[[Film/HoneyIShrunkTheKids Honey, I Blew Up The Kid]]'', Wayne Szalinski's 2-year-old son Adam gets hit with a growth ray. The more electrical appliances that the little guy gets exposed to, the bigger he gets. Near the end of the movie, Adam goes to Las Vegas and gets even bigger, and at one point, two Japanese tourists briefly appear:
-->'''Female Japanese tourist''': Gojira!
-->'''Male Japanese tourist''': No!... Big baby!
* The classic sci-fi film ''Film/VillageOfTheGiants'', from the aforementioned Creator/BertIGordon, features a gang of delinquent teenagers becoming giants. They then take over the small town ... and dance a lot. (Interestingly, does not feature MagicPants for the growing characters.)
* The little-remembered Japanese monster movie from the makers of ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'', ''Film/FrankensteinConquersTheWorld'', featured a child who emerges from the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, [[ItMakesSenseInContext grown from the irradiated heart of Frankenstein's monster]], and turns into a giant wild-man who fights a giant lizard-beast. Whew.
** The Japanese version climaxes in a fight with a [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere Giant Octopus From Nowhere]].
*** That was actually an ending filmed for the American version, but it wasn't used. Both versions end with Franken-boy and Baragon falling into the earth.
* In ''Film/DudeWheresMyCar'' the alien AmazonBrigade morphs together into one "Super Hot Giant Alien" that goes after the main characters.
-->'''Young boy looking up as SHGA walks above him''': I wanna go on that ride Daddy!
-->'''Young boy's father looking up with a grin''': Me too son, me too.
** [[TooDumbToLive Just don't ask her if she spits or swallows.]] [[LiteralManeater She will]] [[EatenAlive devour you.]]
* Seen in ''Film/{{Cloverfield}}'', which featured a monster that can only be described as [[spoiler: a 400-foot whatever. Seriously, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:CloverfieldMonster.jpeg look]] at the thing!]].
** A persistent, though extremely inaccurate, fan theory says that another way to describe it would be "[[spoiler:[[Creator/HPLovecraft Cthulhu]]]]".
* ''Film/NightOfTheLepus'' features '''Giant [[AttackOfTheKillerWhatever Killer]] [[KillerRabbit Bunny Rabbits]]'''. It is [[SoBadItsGood not intended]] as a comedy.
** It is, however, inspired by the Australian satire ''The Year of the Angry Rabbit'' by Russell Braddon. In that novel though the (ordinary-sized) rabbits are infected with a highly-toxic (to humans) strain of myxomatosis.
* ''Arachnid'' was about a bunch of people on a tropical island getting attacked by a giant spider from outer space and all its mutant babies. [[ArtisticLicenseBiology It spawned giant centipedes, giant ticks, another spider, and at the very end, what looked like a grasshopper.]]
* It's worth mentioning that while most of the tomatoes in ''Film/AttackOfTheKillerTomatoes'' were smaller than people, they were very large for tomatoes. (One human-stomper-sized tomato did appear at the climax.) It's worth mentioning so I can bring up this line:
--> '''Scientist examining giant tomato''': "Gentlemen, it's worse than we thought. This, God help us, is a ''cherry tomato''."
* ''Film/QTheWingedSerpent''. Giant snake-bird thing that may be an ancient Aztec god terrorizes New York City.
* ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'', the skyscraper-sized dinosaur is this.
** At 350 feet, a total length of 550 feet 2 inches long, and 90,000 tons, [[Film/{{Godzilla 2014}} the 2014 version]] is the biggest and heaviest Godzilla of all time.
%%* ''Film/KingKong''.
* In the original ending of ''Film/LittleShopOfHorrors'', Audrey II turns into a giant monstrous plant and takes over the world.
* In the classic '50s monster movie ''Film/{{Them}}'', the US Army learns what's worse than a single giant [[ILoveNuclearPower radioactive ant]]: A ''hive of them''. This movie came out in 1954, ''before'' giant monsters were commonly used in movies. The first half of this movie is played like a ''detective story'', then you get a GenreShift.
* ''Film/MegaSharkVsGiantOctopus'', dear god. Z grade disaster flick where a Mega Shark and a Giant Octopus get unfrozen by GlobalWarming, with scenes of the Octopus sinking an offshore oil refinery, the Mega Shark biting a section out of the Golden Gate Bridge, and best of all, the Mega Shark jumping god knows how far into the air to bite a 747 in half.
* ''Film/{{Alligator}}'' featured a pet baby alligator flushed down a sewer where it grows to massive dimensions eating test animals illegally dumped by a chemical company. Well-done comic horror, and written by John Sayles, yet.
* ''Film/EvilAlienConquerors'': You must acknowledge CROKER!!! or he will eat your head! It then gets played with when he gets shrunk down to human size as a result of being teleported to Earth, but doesn't acknowledge it and still acts as if he's gigantic.
* In ''Film/{{Shorts}}'', Stacey is holding the wishing rock when she wishes her boyfriend would grow up. Guess what happens.
* In the Greek movie ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Attack_of_the_Giant_Moussaka The Attack of the Giant Moussaka]]'', Athens is attacked by a Moussaka accidentally rendered gigantic by a ray from an alien spaceship.
* A sheepdog that accidentally drank an experimental formula eventually ended up as a circus attraction in ''Digby, the Biggest Dog in the World''.
* A heroic example turns up in the climax of ''Film/TheMuppetMovie''. Doc Hopper has just ordered his hired goons to kill Kermit the Frog and company, and as they prepare to do so a rumbling is heard...a previous scene had set up that Dr. Bunsen Honeydew had created "Insta-Grow Pills" that have "sadly, temporary" effects. It turns out that Animal has taken some of them, and when he bursts out of one of the buildings and roars, the villains flee and the good guys cheer.
* In ''Film/PacificRim'', after Kaiju emerge from the Pacific hellbent on destroying humanity, giant robots are built to combat them.
* In ''Film/TheTrollHunter'', one of the titular trolls is at ''least'' 50 feet tall, big enough to make a land rover-type vehicle look like a toy.
* Indominus Rex is stated to be 50ft long in ''Film/JurassicWorld''.

* Happens in the first chapter of ''Literature/GulliversTravels''.To the Lilliputians, the protagonist ''is'' the fifty-foot whatever.
* ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'', wherein it is Portal cakes, tonics, and [[MushroomSamba pieces of mushroom]] that cause Alice's vast changes in size - though these changes are irregular: when Alice first expands in the White Rabbit's house, she appears to be as normally proportioned as ever, but when she eats part of the Caterpillar's mushroom, her neck is described as having grown serpentine and winding compared to the rest of her.
* ''Literature/TheWasteLands'': [[BearsAreBadNews It's a bear. A giant cyborg bear.]]
* An early David Sedaris essay talks about trying to write erotica for a Giantess fetish magazine. He harbors no such fetish himself, he simply needs any job he can get. He ponders the more mundane aspects of being a giant that tends to get glossed over in such works. (How would they find enough food to eat? Wouldn't it be lonely? Wouldn't a bowel movement evacuate a city?)
* When the movies in ''Discworld/MovingPictures'' break the barrier between reality and [[EldritchLocation the Dungeon Dimensions]], a giant copy of the lead actress, Ginger, steps out from the screen. She soon grabs the Librarian (an Orangutan) and climbs to the top of The Tower of Art, thus simultaneously parodying ''Film/KingKong'' and ''Film/AttackOfThe50FootWoman'' at once.
** At the end of ''Discworld/UnseenAcademicals'', reports arrive of a seventy-foot monster chicken rampaging through Pseudopolis.
* An interesting inversion of the "army battles giant monster" is the Creator/StephenKing short story "Battleground", where a hitman finds himself battling toy soldiers that have come to life. This is specially brought across in the short film adaptation, where we often see things from the POV of the toys.
* ''Funnelweb'' by Richard Ryan has giant mutant funnelweb spiders rampaging across Australia.
* ''The Food of the Gods and How It Came to Earth'', by Creator/HGWells, is about a substance called [[AppliedPhlebotinum Herakleophorbia IV]] that causes whatever consumes it to continue growing throughout its life cycle. Soon giant insects, animals, and plants abound, causing no end of trouble for the remaining normal-sized population. The novella ends [[spoiler:on the eve of a war between the "Children of the Food" and the "Pygmies."]]
* The Monster Blood series in ''Literature/{{Goosebumps}}''... except the [[InNameOnly fourth one]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' storybook ''A Mighty Big Wish'', Timmy wishes to be a giant so he can stand up to the school bully, but it proves to be more trouble than it is worth.
* In ''Literature/{{Shadowkeep}}'' we have [[spoiler: the Demon King Dal'Brad, described as being taller and heavier than a medium-sized medieval city.]]
* Giants from ''Literature/ThePrismPentad'' are quite huge. The same goes from the BigBad's current form, [[OurDragonsAreDifferent the Dragon]]. [[spoiler: The GreaterScopeVillain Rajaat push this even further and turn into a colossus made of thunder and clouds.]]
* In the TSR Endless Quest book ''Revenge of the Rainbow Dragons'', if you chose to drink this unknown potion that said it'd make you "strong," then you got an ending where the main character turned into a giant.
* On page 73 of the Canadian grade 9 French textbook ''Sans Frontieres'' we see a movie poster for ''Zagora''. The monster is just a Horned Lizard with wings badly photoshopped onto in.
* ''Literature/KaijuRisingAgeOfMonsters'' is mostly full of original (and illustrated) monsters. However, there are a few cases where simple giant versions of existing animals are mentioned.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* The climactic scene in almost every episode of ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', as well as almost every episode of almost every Franchise/SuperSentai ever made. The villain uses some form of AppliedPhlebotinum to [[MakeMyMonsterGrow make the monster grow]] which usually necessitates the use of a HumongousMecha in order to take the monster down once and for all.
** The final episode of ''Series/PowerRangersZeo'' had the Rangers actually grow as well as the villains.
*** Also inverted with the Zords.
* ''Series/{{Ultraman}}''. Every episode. In fact, a fair fraction of {{Toku}} series involve something small growing to meet the height of something already quite large. Then they fight.
* In ''Series/TheGoodies'' episode "Kitten Kong" AppliedPhlebotinum transforms Twinkle the kitten into a monster that destroys London.
* In almost every episode of ''Monster Warriors'', the titular warriors would face a giant monster brought to life out of an old B-Grade movie.
* ''Series/SirArthurConanDoylesTheLostWorld'' not only featured dinosaurs but also giant sized versions of normal creatures (such as bees) for no adequately explained reason.
* ''Series/ThreeTwoOneContact'' subverts this trope with a very convincing explanation of why a giant insect ala ''Film/{{Them}}'' is physically impossible.
* The crew of ''Series/{{Lexx}}'' fought enormous alien replicas of human women in two episodes.
* ''Franchise/KamenRider''
** [[Series/KamenRiderKiva Kamen Rider Arc]] is the largest Kamen Rider to date at ''3.2m'' tall, without use of CGI!
** ''Film/KamenRiderJ'' is a heroic version of this trope, able to grow to building-size in order to fight [[BigBad Fog Mother]]
*** Doras gains this ability after merging with Fog Mother in the [[Film/KamenRiderZO ZO]]/[[Film/KamenRiderJ J]] {{Crossover}} movie.
** Parodied in Series/KamenRiderDecade. When [[Series/KamenRiderDenO Momotaros]] appears via [[PainfulTransformation Final Form Ride]], the camera took an angle that made it ''look'' like Momotaros had become giant. Decade quickly shattered that perception.
*** Played straight in Decade's first movie, ''All Riders vs. Dai-Shocker'', with King Dark, [[Film/KamenRiderJ J]], and Jumbo [[SuperMode Complete Decade]].
* A common type of movie featured in ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''. Besides the Creator/BertIGordon films above, there was ''Film/TheGiantGilaMonster'', ''Film/TheBlackScorpion'', ''Film/TheCrawlingEye'', and many, many more.
* In the "Killer Cars" sketch on ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'', the cars are eventually gotten rid of "by the miracle of atomic mutation" -- that is, they're chased away by a giant cat.
* Even ''Series/DoctorWho'' hasn't been able to resist this trope:
** Classic ''Who'' had "Robot" where TheBrigadier's attempt to use an experimental disintegration gun on the eponymous robot results in it growing to to gigantic size.
** The climax of "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E14TheNextDoctor The Next Doctor]]" involves the Doctor taking on a giant steampunk Cyberman in Victorian London. [[CrazyAwesome The Doctor of course is in a hot air balloon.]]
* ''Series/TheElectricCompany'': [[TemptingFate Do not bother]] [[MakesSenseInContext this tiny person.]] Or he will send his [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin big]] brother after you!
* The 1970a series ''Series/LandOfTheGiants'' dealt with a bunch of people from earth whose airship somehow crossed over to another world where the people from that world are all 10 times the size of an earthling. (One example: a dial telephone on a desk is about 4 feet tall.)
* In "The Twenty-Foot Root" from ''Series/JohnnyAndTheSprites'', Root ends up making himself grow to 20-feet tall after being upset about being the littlest Sprite. Johnny teaches him that "You're the right size naturally / You're who you're supposed to be..."
* ''Series/TheAmazingExtraordinaryFriends'': In "Attack of the Atomic Bombshell", a nuclear genetic accident results in Dr. Dominique Brioche HulkingOut into the 50-foot tall Atomic Bombshell when she gets angry.

* One of Creator/NeilCicierega's early instrumentals ([[IAmTheBand before he adopted the stage name]] Music/LemonDemon) is entitled "Attack of the 50 Foot Zebras".
* The Tubes has a song titled "Attack of the 50 Foot Woman", a tribute of the movie of the same name.
* "Attack of the 60 Foot Lesbian Octopus" by Does it Offend You, Yeah?
* When a king tries to take her for his queen and take her away from her [[TrulySingleParent father and creator]], the title RobotGirl of the Music/{{Voltaire}} song "The Mechanical Girl" proceeds to grow to seven times her size before putting her flamethrowers and rocket launchers to work in destroying his kingdom.
* Music/{{Space}}'s fifth album, ''Attack Of The Mutant 50-Foot Kebab''.
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GiHfBlR-jvQ Giant. Robot. Babies.]]" by [=NicePeter=] of ''WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory'' fame.
* The Music/WeirdAlYankovic song Attack of the Radioactive Hamsters from a Planet Near Mars is about this, with the titular hamsters growing to gigantic proportions.
* The video for Music/{{Gorillaz}}'s "19/2000" features a 300-foot elk.
** Russel, the band's drummer, has also grown to a tremendous size in Phase 3.

[[folder:Music Videos]]
* The music video for "Miserable" by {{Music/Lit}} has the band playing on a giant Pamela Anderson. [[spoiler:She eats them.]]
* In the Czech band Lucie's music video for "Panic" features a gigantic woman in a red dress. For most of the video the lead singer is standing in her hand serenading her. At the end of the video the lead singer slips a ring on the giantess' finger. Unfortunately for him the giant woman then [[LiteralManeater decides he looks tasty and eats him alive.]]
* The music video for "Love Machine" by [[Music/HelloProject Morning Musume]] does this to Mari Yaguchi, who happened to be the shortest member of the group at the time. The video for "Kare to Issho ni Omise ga Shitai" also had this with Risa Niigaki fighting a Godzilla expy, apparently with ThePowerOfLove.
* Ayumi Hamasaki's video ''Sexy Little Things'' include a gigantic woman bursting through a wall, her head almost as tall as the wall itself.
* The video for the Music/BeastieBoys ''Intergalactic'' features a giant robot (piloted by three scientists played by the group members) battling a giant sea creature in Tokyo in a parody of kaiju films.
* "Giving You Up" by Music/KylieMinogue has a giant Kylie walking the streets and flirting in a club with a somewhat dorky dude, though she looks only around twelve feet tall.
* Music/{{Savlonic}}'s [[http://www.weebls-stuff.com/songs/Tiny+Japanese+Girl/ "Tiny Japanese Girl"]] has the singer in a Franchise/{{Godzilla}} costume, rampaging across a city.
* Shows up in a couple of Music/TheyMightBeGiants videos:
** "With the Dark" features the singers battling a GiantSquid at one point.
** In "Icky", the titular icky guy grows to giant size and goes on a ''Film/KingKong''-like rampage.

* The "Secret Weapon" mode of ''Pinball/RevengeFromMars'' has a HumongousMecha version of UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln fighting a Big-O Martian.
* A giant {{Kaiju}} attacks San Francisco in ''Pinball/RedAndTedsRoadShow''.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* The 3rd Edition of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' has a supplement called the TabletopGame/EpicLevelHandbook. Aside from monsters that are tremendously powerful, a disproportionate number of the monsters are also tremendously ''big'', such as the [[HumongousMecha Flesh, Stone, and Iron Colossi]] (super-sized versions of the more common flesh, stone, and iron golems) and the devastation vermin (''really'' big bugs). In Monster Manual II, there is also a template to take a tiny or smaller creature and make it bigger than a house.
** Hence ... The [[http://www.jeremyjarvis.com/gallery/bst/L_gigantictoad.jpg Titanic Toad]]!
** In the older ''TabletopGame/{{Spelljammer}}'' setting, there were Giant Space Hamsters -- roughly the size of bears -- bred from regular hamsters by Krynnish Tinker Gnomes. And then they bred some of them back to regular hamster size, creating Miniature Giant Space Hamsters, because Tinker Gnomes are '''''weird'''''. Famously, Boo of ''Franchise/BaldursGate'' may or may not actually be a Miniature Giant Space Hamster.
*** And then we get into the '''''really''''' out there variations, like the Sabertooth Giant Space Hamster or the Flying Carnivorous Giant Space Hamster.
**** And the Firebreathing Phase Doppleganger Giant Space Hamster.
* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' has [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=129568 Giant Growth]], one of the most commonly reprinted cards of the game. The world of Naya from ''Shards of Alara'' is home to enormous creatures known as "gargantuans", which are worshiped by the local elves and humans.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' seems to have a fondness for using "battle tank" as a standard size for wildlife, and Tyranids revel in this trope with their heavier creatures, especially the Bio-Titans.
** ''WarhammerFantasy'' is currently going into this trend as well, giving each of the factions new big monsters. The crowning one was the Arachnork Spider, which was so large it's base dwarfs the Land Raider, the second largest tank in 40k, who was then followed by the Zombie Dragon and the horrifying batlike Terrorghast, which shares a base with it. Storm of Magic turned it UpToEleven with a whole slew of new monsters and beasts that any wizard can call upon to fight for him/her.
* This is the ''point'' of the collectible miniatures game ''TabletopGame/{{Monsterpocalypse}}''.
* One of the Kiths available to Ogre characters in ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'' gives you this as its special power. Depending on how powerful you are and how big you are already, you grow to anything from the size of a gorilla to bigger than an SUV. Coincidentally, this Kith is called the Gargantuan.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' has some of its behemoths, and any Lunar with Emperor Ox Expansion. One character, [[MeaningfulName Leviathan]], has spent the past two millennia as an orca roughly the size of a small island.
** Many of the [[OneWingedAngel Shintai]] charms, native to the Green Sun Princes, turns its user into a 50-feet version of their patrons, themselves are ''hundreds of feet'' [[EldritchAbomination scary things]]. For example, you can turn into massive humanoid sandstorm, massive tentacular sea monster, massive green radioactive star... And if you go [[FaustianRebellion Devil-Tiger route]], you can have Attack of the 50 Feet ''You''.
* ''Gammarauders'' has the bioborgs, giant cyborg creatures that can be fitted with various weapons. There are also conventional forces (in the form of aircraft, tanks, and infantry), which are collectively referred to by players (and the official manual) as ''popcorn''. They ''can'' make a difference in a battle between bioborgs ... but not much of one.

[[folder:Theme Parks]]
* A new musical version of Creature from the Black Lagoon at Ride/UniversalStudios Hollywood features an enormous puppet of the Gillman at the end, made his unnatural size by an accidental application of... ahem... male anatomy enhancers.
* In ''Ride/TheSimpsonsRide'', also at Universal Studios, Maggie wanders into a nuclear reactor and later appears as a giant, serving as something of a DeusExMachina.
* When Chessington World of Adventures (near London UK) first opened, one attraction was a "Fifth Dimension" dark ride on which the riders were "shrunk" and travelled through a series of scenes of giant domestic items. Needless to say, the riders got "restored" just before the ride ended. (This ride has since been rethemed.)

* ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' Rahi Nui is already about 50 feet tall in its standard form (and it also attacks). But it has the power to grow even larger. So large, in fact, that this has once caused its molecules to split, since it couldn't control its density.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The ''VideoGame/GodOfWarSeries'' absolutely loves this trope. The first game features, among its bosses, a Hydra so large it more or less takes up the entire level, a gigantic [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot robot/cyborg/Steampunk minotaur]], and Ares, who could probably wrestle Godzilla. The sequel has Kratos get in on the act briefly, pulling a Godzilla-Of-War on Rhodes, and then fighting the Colossus of Rhodes while normal-sized. While Zeus is ''close'' to Kratos' size the time you fight him, he's still noticably larger than the already-abnormally-large Kratos. Titans, giant monsters, and oversize gods abound in the rest of the series.
* Late in the Japan-only PC-FX game ''Makeruna! Makendou Z'', after our heroes are put to sleep by Honmayaner, Hikari dreams that she is a giantess fighting a three-headed dragon.
* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog''
** At the end of ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'', after Dr. Eggman feeds it all seven Chaos Emeralds, Chaos becomes a 50-foot sea serpent that rises from a flood in Station Square.
** Perfect Chaos doesn't just rise from the flood; it ''is'' the flood!
** The final boss from ''VideoGame/KnucklesChaotix'' is a huge, red Metal Sonic-like robot.
* An important part of the story in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'' involves a giant sword that destroyed the Star Road and crashed right into Bowser's Keep.
** Throughout the game, there are also power-ups that either double or half a character's size, and allows that character more or less control respectively over his partner.
* ''VideoGame/ZombiesAteMyNeighbors'' features such bosses as giant babies, giant snakes, and two mad scientists who turn into giant red tarantulas.
** The level with the giant ants. It's not a boss, but a level where the enemies are giant ants.
* Almost every single boss in the ''VideoGame/{{Contra}}'' series is a 50-foot robot or alien.
* In the classic arcade game ''VideoGame/{{Rampage}}'', you play a human turned into a giant monster by [[FreakLabAccident an experiment gone wrong]].
* One scenario in ''VideoGame/OsuTatakaeOuendan'' revolves around a {{Salaryman}} growing to gigantic height to fight a giant blue mouse that was attacking the city. The second ''Ouendan'' game had a giant cat called Nyaragon.
** Said Nyaragon was based on the monster from a movie that was being made in ''VideoGame/EliteBeatAgents'', ''Ouendan'''s sister series.
* In ''[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Super Mario World 2]]: VideoGame/YoshisIsland'', the bosses are normal enemies made {{giant|Mook}} by the magic of Kamek (except for one battle that involved Yoshi and Baby Mario getting shrunk). In fact the final battle involved Kamek enlarging Baby Bowser to a size bigger than the castle they were in.
** There's also ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros'', ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'', and ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld'', where there are power ups that can make the player character grow as tall as the screen and tear through enemies and obstacles.
** ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story]]'' has Bowser being super-charged on adrenaline and growing super giant in order to battle his hijacked castle, a [[HumongousMecha giant robot]] coming out of nowhere, a train, and [[spoiler: ''Princess Peach's Castle'' (as remodeled by Fawful)]], preceded by Bowser being crushed by said buildings.
** ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiDreamTeam'' has Luigi grow to giant size in the Dream World to face off against giant bosses. [[spoiler: In a nod to the previous game, he ultimately gets to face off against a giant Bowser in what's probably his most triumphant moment in the series.]]
** Come to think of it, wouldn't the Mario Brothers themselves be a small version of this? Give 'em a mushroom and they double in height.
* In the Japanese [=PS2=] game ''The Daibijin'', the player must pilot a helicopter, and in one stage an airplane, against a bikini-clad woman who had been {{brainwashed}} and turned into a giant by aliens. Seriously.
* In ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]]'', the boss of Stone Tower Temple is a set of [masked] humongous desert worms that fly. The simplest way to fight them is to don the Giant's Mask, which will grow you to similar size to give you a fighting chance. (Or you could don the [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Fierce Deity Mask]] and get a laser-beam shooting sword, or just use your bow if you're out of mana and [[HundredPercentCompletion don't have the latter mask.]])
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]'' features the Imprisoned, a giant ArmlessBiped that you must [[TimedMission stop]] from walking up a spiral path and into a temple. The most basic method of killing it isn't {{Colossus Climb}}ing it, but rather attacking its feet to bring its weak spot down to you.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheMinishCap The Minish Cap]]'' inverts this to similar effect. When you're [[IncredibleShrinkingMan Minish sized]] a mere [[TheGoomba Octorok]] becomes ThatOneBoss.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'', stepping [[JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind into the mind of a giant lake monster]] transforms you into an enormous monster called ''{{Gogg|lesDoNothing}}alor."
* In ''VideoGame/Disgaea2CursedMemories'', Flonne's angelic attacks from the first game are obviously unusable. Instead she gets to grow to giant size, wear a big patchy dinosaur costume, and breathe fire while prop planes with obvious strings fly overhead. [[UselessUsefulSpell One of the worst]], [[CrowningMomentofAwesome yet probably the greatest]], attack in the game.
** Monster units in ''VideoGame/Disgaea4APromiseUnforgotten'' have the ability to fuse with another monster to approximately triple them in size.
* In ''VideoGame/ShadowOfTheColossus'', there are several 50-foot whatever. Sixteen actually. And you attack them!. The two smallest ones are about the size of an elephant.
* In ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'', Jigglypuff's Final Smash, Puff Up, causes her to grow/inflate to such a size that it can push other characters off the stage. Most evident on small stages.
** Bowser's equivalent Final Smash move involves turning into the dreaded Giga Bowser and wreaking havoc on everybody. Giga Bowser is much larger in ''Melee'' than he is in ''Brawl'', and can get Super-Mushroomed to a downright ridiculous size.
* One stage of ''[[VideoGame/ParappaTheRapper Parappa The Rapper 2]]'' involves Parappa and an ant being repeatedly shrunk and then grown to enormous size.
* The arcade rail shooter ''VideoGame/LetsGoJungle!'' features hordes of giant critters as enemies. In addition to {{giant spider}}s, there's giant wasps, giant frogs, a giant mantis, and the final boss is ''a giant killer butterfly''.
* ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' has the 'Giant Monster' enemy class for foes that fall under this trope. Most of them spawn in open areas and are specially coded so that characters of any level can deal substantial damage to them. Some like the Kraken, Eochai and Devouring Earth monsters are simply giant versions of regular {{mooks}}, but there's also Lusca the gigantic octopus, Jack In Irons the giant... well, [[OurGiantsAreBigger the giant]], and one of the ultimate {{Big Bad}}s of the game; Hamidon- a colossal ''single-celled organism'' that takes dozens of players and special tactics to defeat.
** Adamastor the giant zombie, and the HumongousMecha piloted by U'kon'Grai, [[AlienInvasion Rikti]] Master at Arms with a name that's one big in-joke.
* ''VideoGame/{{Spore}}'' gives us Epic creatures, larger versions of creatures made by other players that start off at a large, but not ridiculously so size in the creature stage, but become downright massive in Civilization. In Space phase, you can use the "Supersizer" tool to enlarge creatures, turning the scenario into "Attack Of The 50 Foot Whatever You Want". FurryConfusion ensues when the game selects a species whose hnau version you brought up to Diplomat Hero in the last game.
* Every single major world boss in the ''VideoGame/BubbleBobble'' series: huge compared to the protagonists.
* Kraid in ''Super VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'' and ''Metroid: Zero Mission''. He stands about two map squares tall and naturally towers over Samus. In both games, Kraid is the first major boss fight, and is shockingly weak in health, despite his size. He attacks by shooting his belly spikes and flinging his detachable claws at Samus.
** Quadraxis from ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime 2'' is downright HUGE; his head alone is a little bigger than Samus' gunship!
** ''Prime 2'' also has Chykka, Emperor Ing, and Amorbis
** Then from ''Prime'' you have Thardus, Metroid Prime, Flaaghra, and the Omega Pirate.
** ''Prime 3'' has Mogenar, and [[spoiler:AU 313]]. Safe to say that Metroid loves this trope.
* ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' has had robot Clank turn into a HumongousMecha, who gets to level the surrounding area. A later game in the series, fittingly called ''Size Matters'', features a lot of both this and IncredibleShrinkingMan as part of it's plot.
* In ''Total Rampage'', you play a giant monster trying to terrorize a city. Very similar to it's arcade counterpart, ''Rampage'', mentioned at the start of this folder.
* In ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlertSeries Command & Conquer Red Alert: Counter Strike]]'', there is a secret campaign where you fight giant ants
* The end of the second chapter in ''VideoGame/Sly3HonorAmongThieves''. Due to unforeseen combination of sleep darts and [[EvilMask Mask of Dark Earth]]'s influence, Carmelita starts growing. And yes, the DatingCatwoman protagonist Sly gets to solve the problem with a [[ColossusClimb Carmelita Climb]], as put by the game.
** Much later in the game, Dr. M attacks you with a large mutant... Thing.
-->'''Bentley''': You've always wanted to get closer to her. Can't get much closer than climbing up her boot laces!
* ''VideoGame/TheMatrixPathOfNeo'' [[spoiler: at the end of the game, which corresponds with the end of ''Matrix Revolutions'', two avatars of the Wachowski brother and sister themselves [[{{Narrator}} speak directly to the player]] and explain that, while the Martyr ending was OK for the movies and the story, it just wouldn't work that well for a videogame. So instead, all the Smiths get together and grab various bits of destroyed junk and debris, as well as a giant pair or sunglasses from an ad, and for a GIANT Smith.]]
* Unintentionally subverted in ''VideoGame/AgeOfMythology'', as the Giants, Frost Giants, Fire Giants and Greek colossuses are only about two or three (four tops) times the size of the human figures.
** Then you buy the expansion pack and watch and marvel as your enemies get goomba stomped by a giant birdman which took you an hour or so to build.
* ''VideoGame/DestroyAllHumans 2'' has a [[Awesome/BossesOtherGames boss fight]] in [[spoiler: Takoshima]] with [[spoiler: Kojira]].
** The final chapter of the first game was called [[spoiler:Attack of the 50 Foot President]] in a reference to the 50s B Movie. Funnily enough, you fight [[spoiler: a ''50 foot robo-president BrainInAJar'']].
* In ''VideoGame/{{Drakengard}}'', the canon FinalBoss is [[spoiler:fighting a giant [[CreepyChild Manah]]]].
* ''VideoGame/Kirby64TheCrystalShards'' downplays this. Rock + Rock turns Kirby into an oversized MightyGlacier version of himself. Take FridgeLogic and the fact that Kirby's 8" tall, and you realize that the Rock + Rock Kirby is 1'04"! (50ft would actually be 37.5 times as large as Rock + Rock Kirby)
* An early level in ''3D VideoGame/{{Lemmings}}'' is "Attack of the 50 foot Lemming" -- your lemmings start on the giant lemming's head and make their way down to the feet. Unfortunately there's no attacking, just a level designed to look like a giant lemming.
* Pandemonium in VideoGame/{{Everlong}}.
* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has a few monstrous foes. Vanilla has the [[TyrannosaurusRex Devilsaurs]], various giants, and the Fire Lord Ragnaros. ''The Burning Crusade'' added [[HumongousMecha Fel Reavers]], Colossi (crystalline giants), and the one-eyed Gronn. ''Cataclysm'' is bringing in Whale Sharks and [[spoiler: Neltharion himself, who is FREAKING HUGE!]]
** In ''Wrath Of The Lich King'', the Ulduar raid dungeon is a Titan city, and thus is made of this trope, by this trope, for this trope.
** You also get to be this in one of the new dungeons (Throne of the Tides) for part of the last boss, where you have to drive away a gigantic squid from the equivalent of a water god's lair.
* In ''VideoGame/CrushCrumbleAndChomp'', the player ''is'' one of these.
* Referenced in ''VideoGame/DiscworldII'', where you see a movie poster advertising ''Attack of the 50-Foot Dwarf''. [[spoiler: Also, in the endgame, a 50-Foot Elf Queen comes out of the cinema screen and you have to defeat her.]]
* The right parameters when spawning mobs in ''VideoGame/StarTrekEliteForce 2'' will allow you to make Map sized lizards and borg collosi, among other things.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Amea}}'', a good number of the bosses are this. Special mention goes to [[spoiler:Mish, who was only a small child the last time he was seen]].
* ''[[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Touhou Project]]'':
** Suika utilizes her control of density to grow herself really large and heavy for some of her attacks in ''Immaterial and Missing Power'' and ''Scarlet Weather Rhapsody''.
** The plot of ''Hisoutensoku'' boils down to three characters seeing an impossibly huge shadow of something and going off in pursuit of whatever it was (though only one of them successfully tracks down the cause of their respective shadow). The last boss fights of Cirno's and Meiling's scenarios do this to a doll and a catfish, respectively. In the latter case, the catfish starts off as merely huge and continues to grow each time it attacks. Sanae's scenario inverts this by making her last boss the shortest character in the game.
** ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarisaLand'' does this for [[spoiler: the final boss]].
* ''VideoGame/AsurasWrath'' takes this to a [[UpToEleven RIDICULOUS]] level, as the final form of the first boss turns to the size of a planet and tries to CRUSH YOU TO DEATH WITH A FINGER THE SIZE OF TENNESSEE!
** Probably the ultimate example of this in both ''VideoGame/AsurasWrath'' and possibly all of gaming is [[spoiler: [[TrueFinalBoss Chakravartin]], who's extension of his power is so big his basic projectiles are Planets and Small Stars, he throws suns at you later, and Galaxies are small in comparison to him. He's really , REALLY big.]]
* ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' has one area, the Lost Underworld, where everything is so huge that the characters' sprites shrink. This includes the enemies.
** Fortunately, they later encounter the Dungeon Man ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a man the size of a dungeon!]]) who sees them through.
* The ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom'' games feature a good number of these as bosses. Starting with [[Characters/XMenVillains Apocalypse]] in ''VideoGame/XMenVsStreetFighter'' and going [[UpToEleven all the way to eleven]] in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' with ComicBook/{{Galactus}} HIMSELF as the boss.
* Lordran in ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' is littered with dangerous giant beasts, such as wolves, armored boars, and magic-shooting butterflies.
* ''VideoGame/PennyArcadeAdventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness'' starts with Gabe and Tycho chasing after this giant robot that flattened your character's house.
* ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' is all about tackling large monsters that can easily fling you around like a ragdoll without proper preparation (as in being CrazyPrepared). Amongst the largest of the lot are Elder Dragons [[http://monsterhunter.wikia.com/wiki/Lao_Shan-Lung Lao Shan-Lung]], which is a red Franchise/{{Godzilla}}; [[http://monsterhunter.wikia.com/wiki/Jhen_Mohran Jhen Mohran]], a sand-swimming cross between a crocodile and a living mountain, whose spine can be mined for rare ore; [[http://monsterhunter.wikia.com/wiki/Ceadeus Ceadeus]], a whale-like aquatic monstrosity; and topping the list is [[http://monsterhunter.wikia.com/wiki/Raviente Raviente]], a colossal tusked serpent as big as an ''island''.
** The Dalamadur is ''the'' ultimate example of this: it's ''tail'' makes a blue whale look like a goldfish in comparison.
* The final boss of ''VideoGame/SeriousSam: the First Encounter'' is Ugh Zan III, a giant four armed monster who is so big that Serious Sam only reaches up to his foot. Almost all of the second-to-last level is about outrunning him to the super weapon stored inside a pyramid because he's too damn big. He's an actual enemy inside the level, not just an AdvancingWallOfDoom (though he functions the same way).
* One of the [[ShowWithinaShow movie scripts]] in ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'' is this; the protagonist's girlfriend/sister is turned into a giant in the middle of the city by a cursed pokeball, and much panic and flailing ensues.
* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' has Super Mutant Behemoths, and on the player's side, Liberty Prime.
* ''VideoGame/{{Lemegeton}}'''s first episode ends with a fight against Gaap, a ''huge'' demon who may ''literally'' be fifty feet tall. The best way to describe him is a kind of humanoid fort that periodically sweeps one side of the room with a [[TakenForGranite petrifying beam]].
* In ''VideoGame/ItCameFromTheDesert'', humanity falls under attack from giant ants.
* ''Attack of the Mutant Camels''. To quote from the manual:
-->The evil alien nasties have invaded the earth - but not in person! They have abducted some camels from earth and used devious genetic engineering to mutate the normally harmless beasts into 90 foot high, laser spitting, neutronium shielded death camels!
* ''VideoGame/{{Team Fortress 2}}'' [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this in their promotional material for an update to [[MultiMookMelee Mann vs. Machine]], [[http://www.teamfortress.com/mechaupdate/ when the robotic Engineer was added.]]
-->And as the incredible art above this paragraph illustrates, (the Mecha-Engineer) will be over '''one hundred feet tall!''' (It will not.) Not to worry, though, because it looks like Engineer will also be '''one hundred feet tall!''' (He also will not.)
* One of the bosses in ''{{Transistor}}'' is "The Spine of the World", a massive Process that resembles a horseshoe crab with a long, spiked prehensile tail that it uses to attack Red as she climbs Highrise to get to it. Its mere ''presence'' causes the Transistor to go haywire and become delirious. [[spoiler: And even worse, there's more than one.]]
* ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'' gives the ultimate DLC challenge against [[spoiler: Tokyo local protector deity Masakado. While in other games is a normal sized human, in this case is a being so giant that skyscrapers protrude from his shoulders, his hands are giant roots ripped from the earth, his waist is connected to the ground via magma, and is so big that he could be measured in kilometers. He can completely cover the whole city of Tokyo (creating the Firmament) and also host a complete medieval society on his very back (several villages, a big lake and fortified city with several protective rings, huge castle included). His inner body includes Naraku, a giant maze cave which is home to several demons connected to the freaking Sky Tower that links both Tokyo and Mikado. Did I mention he is also strong enough to tank a last-gen nuke? You actually can't beat him in the game, you have to calm him down in ten minutes (ten turns in game) so he can tank said Nuke before it turns Tokyo into Blasted Tokyo. [[http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130710192505/megamitensei/images/7/78/Masakado_Complete_Form_SMTIV.png/ A pic ]] for reference.]]
* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' has giant versions of many animals, the largest being the giant sperm whale which is larger then a real world blue whale. Gods help you should a giant sperm whale ever be infected with undeath as they will then proceed to come onto land to murder your entire fort. Other giant animals include giant sponges, which while not as deadly as in an earlier version where they were effectively invincible (except to copious amounts of magma, a drawbridge, having the water they were in drained, or a cave in) can still fuck your shit up far more then any sessile animal ought to be able to, and giant cave spiders which have a poison that will slowly but inevitably kill your dwarves (and most other creatures) via total paralysis followed by suffocation.
** Forgotten Beasts are usually depicted as this trope in fanart. Considering how much resources can be harvested from one, it is safe to say they are quite large.
* There are certain games made by Tapps called evolution games, where you combine animals into bigger animals. [[ExaggeratedTrope They eventually outgrow entire continents,]] [[UpToEleven and eventually the entire universe!]]
* David Crane's ''VideoGame/{{Ghostbusters 1984}}'' from Creator/{{Activision}} has the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man make an appearance to stomp down buildings on the city map if the player doesn't lure it away using ghost bait, as well as block the entrance to the building that the Ghostbusters must enter to stop Gozer in the final battle.
* The game ''Corruption of Champions'' has quite a few giants in the game. From smallest to largest are Minverva (8'5"), the Sand Mother (8'6"), Izumi the Oni (9'0"), and Venus the turtle-girl ('''bigger than everyone else''').
* ''VideoGame/YouAreEmpty'' has the Lenin Komsomol Hens, ordinary chickens transformed by SovietSuperscience into vicious giants.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* One of the few recurring characters in ''Webcomic/ElectricRetard'' is a [[http://www.electricretard.com/0009.html giant, naked Hitler]].
* [[http://www.mitchclem.com/mystupidlife/8/ Mozilla Vs. Firefox]] from ''My Stupid Life''.
* In ''Webcomic/SonicAndPals'', the Author [[http://www.sonicandpals.com/archive.php?d=01032004 makes himself grow because he's mad at Knuckles.]] [[http://www.sonicandpals.com/archive.php?d=01042004 It doesn't help.]]
* In ''Webcomic/{{Fite}}'', [[spoiler:Lucco grows giant after [[FusionDance absorbing Guz]] and defeats King Frogera by ''eating him'']].
* In the ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' arc "GOFOTRON, Champion of the Cosmos", the titular CombiningMecha regularly battles giant monsters created by the evil Zorgon empire. One of these creatures was a hundred-foot ''broccoli'' monster.
* DreamTales has several comics featuring giant women, including [[http://www.dreamtalescomics.com/Blog/2011/skyscraper-suzy/ Skyscraper Suzy]] and [[http://www.dreamtalescomics.com/Blog/2011/splash/ The Big Splash]]
* Done, in ''ComicStrip/ThePerryBibleFellowship'''s characteristically disturbing style [[http://pbfcomics.com/120/ here]].
* Happens to Vinicius in ''Webcomic/{{Vinigortonio}}'' during a test on [[BerserkButton Natural Sciences]].
* ''Webcomic/BugMartini'' and [[http://www.bugcomic.com/comics/bratzilla/ Bratzilla]].
* In ''Webcomic/{{Sinfest}}'', [[http://www.sinfest.net/view.php?date=2006-11-25 Crimney pushes down the stack of books he hides behind, and Squigley assumes he's playing this.]]
** [[http://www.sinfest.net/view.php?date=2006-11-12 Then, he was Pigzilla! once]].
* In ''Webcomic/RustyAndCo'', this results from Rusty getting hold of the Belt of Genre Changing.
-->'''Rusty''': EAT TOKYO?
* In ''Webcomic/BlackAdventures'', both Garby the Garbodor and Landorus become this when attacking Striaton and Driftveil, respectively. They both revert to their original sizes after being defeated by Black and N.
* Referenced in ''Webcomic/TheDailyDerp''. [[http://dailyderp.tumblr.com/post/41138439462/http-www-youtube-com-watch-v-fpf7kz8afoa-list-plb Derpy pretends she's a muffin-terrorizing giant]], for fun.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* {{Shapeshift|ing}}er Jimmy T in the Literature/WhateleyUniverse did this when all of [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]] was under attack. He first transformed into a 50 foot woman, and when he got blasted, he went ''bigger''. He shifted into an 80-foot Godzilla copy.
* In Creator/JossWhedon's Supervillain Musical ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog'' the revenge daydreams of the titular MadScientist character include him turning into a 50 foot giant and stomping on his arch nemesis.
* Underground Musician-slash-MadScientist Music/DoctorSteel has a song entitled "Atomic Superstar" about Godzilla attacking Tokyo.
* In his review of ''Neutro'', [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] is attacked by the giant robot, then makes himself giant by pulling out [[MythologyGag a quarter]] and intoning "[[MakeMyMonsterGrow Magic Coin, make my me grow!]] [[FridgeLogic ...Wait..]]"
** He later uses Neutro against a giant Mechakara.
* Literature/HitherbyDragons gives us [[http://imago.hitherby.com/?p=308 Night of the Antinomian]], about a 300ft tall, 14th- century Church reformer.
* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' spoofs this in the Strong Bad Email [[http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail166.html unnatural]], where Bubs is turned into the gigantic "King Bubsgonzola Supreme" and goes on a rampage.
* A [[Franchise/{{Digimon}} Greymon]] in the first episode of Fanfic/AnimeWorldChaos.


[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Jake in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' can change shape and size at will. [[CuteMonsterGirl Marceline the Vampire Queen]] does so as well, though she generally prefers quite monstrous forms for combat purposes...and [[ItAmusedMe freaking people out.]]
* One episode of the ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' had Tails grow to Godzilla-like proportions and eat anything that he found edible nonstop. Unfortunately for the locals, they were all [[LetsMeetTheMeat walking, talking wieners]].
* Davey Hacker uses a gadget to make himself gigantic in ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingSpiez'' episode "Operation The 50 Ft. Hacker." Megan winds up using the same gadget to make herself giant as well, but it eventually backfires and causes her to expand like a balloon.
* ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'': "Bigger than regular chicken? You mean...Mega-Ultra-Chicken? Ssssh! Is Legend!"
* Happen to Veronica in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/ArchiesWeirdMysteries''.
* One intro of ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' opens with Arthur saying his life is just about perfect, except for one thing... Cue "Attack of the 50-Foot D.W." Houses get crushed underfoot, fires are blazing, and animal-people are running and screaming.
* Waybig, from ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' is a good guy example. He's even called a {{Toku}}'star, after the ''tokusatsu'' genre. One episode had a TakingYouWithMe failsafe that created a giant monster designed to ''nuke the earth''. It was activated by a Highbreed officer who didn't get the memo.
** And now in ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'' [[spoiler: Gwen has had her moment too, growing very large to intimidate Zombozo the second time she takes her Anodite form]].
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/BikerMiceFromMars'' featured two monsters named Gorgonzola and Monsterella. The two of them could grow to giant size by blowing themselves up like balloons.
** Also it's intro sequence had Limburger appear gigantic near the middle.
* On ''WesternAnimation/{{Bonkers}}'' a mediocre clown goes around stealing the humor from {{Toon}}s. Eventually all the humor gets absorbed by his toon sidekick, turning him into a giant who attacks the city with {{slapstick}}.
* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'' with giant extremists of the planet (ironically named) Gargantua. The subversion comes through the fact that the natural height of a Gargantuan is six inches and the 6 foot terrorists are actually turning off the tech that the heroes are using to avoid this problem in their natural height (earlier, Booster was a little upset that his seat for a ceremony was a bank).
* After exposure to a growth ray on ''WesternAnimation/CelebrityDeathmatch'', Music/JessicaSimpson took out 98 Degrees' HumongousMecha.
* ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'':
** In "Fake Me to Your Leader", Professor Nimnul fakes an alien invasion by enlarging insects to around twice the size of a human. Little does he know until near the end of the episode that he also accidentally zapped Zipper with his Gigantico Gun, resulting in the smallest Rescue Ranger becoming a giant who ends up stopping him. The other Rangers manage to get the gun, set it to reverse, and shrink Zipper back to his normal size.
** Also used for a couple of brief scenes in "Puffed Rangers". The villains unwittingly enlarge the Rangers, who then end up scaring them off. Monty gets to have a bit of fun before returning to normal size.
* A few WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts, including ''BraveLittleTailor'' and ''Giantland''.
* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheCritic'', Jay Sherman reviews a film where [[BigApplesauce New York City]] is attacked by a 50-foot Ed Koch (the city's former mayor).
* WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck spends the end of "Planet of the Capes" this way. So did the villain, until the ray they were using to grow was broken. When you start using astronomical phenomena as melee and thrown weapons, you've put on a little weight.
* In a take on "Jack And The Beanstalk," the ''[[DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines Magnificent Muttley]]'' episode "What's New, Old Bean?" has the canine facing a giant Dick Dastardly.
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' was called "Attack of the 50-Foot Webby."
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}}'' ate a combination of odd chemicals that caused him to grow whenever he got angry. Duckman being Duckman, by the end he was taller than a two-story house, and went to a deserted island so his anger wouldn't hurt himself or anyone else. While he was isolated, his depression shrank him to mouse size, but he had no frame of reference, so he couldn't tell.
* On ''WesternAnimation/FishHooks'', Milo discovers a tank that makes fish bigger, and uses it to make himself stronger. He ends up overdoing it, stomping through the pet shop [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} wearing a little sailor suit and hat]].
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' spoofed this in its WhatIf episode, with Bender coming to earth as a 500-foot version of his regular self, and Dr. Zoidberg being supersized to battle him. (The spoof aspect comes when Zoidberg is seduced by power and begins destroying the city himself - "The Apollo theater! Boo ''me'' off the stage on Open Mike night, will you?!?")
** This trope was also played straight in the episode ''Benderama'', wherein a 50-foot nerd attacks New New York City.
* Oberon in ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' makes himself gigantic when trying to kidnap Alexander Xanatos.
* Naturally occurring in ''WesternAnimation/GodzillaTheSeries''.
* ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'': Skeletor tries this when he gets a power boost. The cliffs around Snake Mountain aren't [[NoOSHACompliance rated for]] sudden increases in weight.
* Ultra-Pipi from the ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' episode "Hamstergeddon". He even gets back ridge-plates and atomic breath after demolishing a nuclear power plant. And somehow a cybernetic foot. ([[RuleOfCool Because it looks cool, I guess]])
* Happens to Jade in ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' as she tries to cast a spell to become older and instead becomes huge. Her destruction, however, is limited to a demolition zone as she battled a giant ogre conjured by the BigBad. Also see Po Kong the Mountain Demon, who is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Tohru, in reference to this, becomes one briefly too.
* The 'music video' to "I Am A Giant" from ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' has a giant Pizzazz parodying ''Film/KingKong''. The song itself is an egotistical song instead of literally being about a giant.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'' cartoon "Jumbo Johnny", an overdose of protein shakes made Johnny fat, and enough of them eventually made him grow to a gigantic height.
* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'', "Rufus vs. Commodore Puddles". Fifty-foot naked mole-rat against equally large French poodle, in combat at Area 51. The garrison there kept giant, truck-mounted dog whistles and bombers full of dog biscuits available [[CrazyPrepared for just that situation]]. "Full frontal assault by giant canine. That's a forty-one stroke five-S scenario."
* As usual, Creator/TexAvery played this trope to the hilt in ''WesternAnimation/KingSizeCanary'', in which a bird, cat, dog, and mouse enlarge themselves by drinking Jumbo-Gro plant food. The cartoon ends with the cat and mouse standing over a basketball-sized Earth.
* From ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', after [[spoiler:fusing with Vaatu to become a Dark Avatar]], Unalaq grows to gigantic size, goes to Republic City, and starts wreaking havoc.

He ends up the size of a full-grown dragon before [[ResetButton finally being brought back to normal]].

** Also from ''Justice League Unlimited'', ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} once fought a giant fire-breathing turtle creature in Japan. (Its shock of red hair and the way it shrunk when defeated means it might have been a ShoutOut to Jimmy Olsen's [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] stint as "Giant Turtle Boy" as well as [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Bowser]] and/or Franchise/{{Gamera}}.)
** Also from ''{{WesternAnimation/Superfriends}}'' is the episode "The Giants of Doom". Guess what happens to Bizarro, Sinestro, Captain Cold, and Toyman in that one.
