Statuesque Stunner

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/779278-barda_panel_4_super_3460.jpg
Big Barda's a whole lotta woman.
"My mind can’t quite get to the point of having lustful thoughts because I’m too worried about where I’m going to find a step-ladder at this time at night."

Women, on average, are shorter than men. And a good number of men find petite women charming. Because of this, in our society, tall girls and women often feel awkward and out of place, and some men will feel uncomfortable when it comes to having a relationship with a woman who towers over them, similar to someone stronger than them.

But then there are some women for whom this trope applies. These are the women whose overall charm comes from their height. Even if they themselves don't acknowledge it, the story and/or characters make it clear that her height is one of her distinguishing charms. Also, in fiction, tall women tend to be Tomboys and sometimes fall into the Action Girl archetype. Due to their extreme height, they will often have nice, long legs.

They are also quite common in the Superhero genre, where they also often have a Heroic Build and the Most Common Superpower. As with those tropes, tall heroines can be more the norm than the exception. Tall heroines have to be extremely tall to really stand out. Looking at published Canon references like DC's Who's Who and Marvel's Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe, one gets the impression that the average height for female heroes is something like 5'10" or 5'11" (and that for male characters, it's about 6'3").

Please note that for a woman to qualify for this trope, she needs to fulfill two criteria:

  1. She must be either taller than most men in her setting or stand at least 5'8" (172 cm) tall.
  2. She must either be considered attractive in-universe or be accompanied by Fanservice, Beauty or Attraction Tropes. note 

Not to be confused with Taken for Granite.

Some Statuesque Stunners are also Amazonian Beauties. Compare and contrast Huge Schoolgirl and Giant Woman. Compare Amazon Chaser, a guy to whom the attractive quality in a woman is her fighting skill and/or her muscular build instead of her height. Also compare to Big Beautiful Woman (which puts more emphasis on weight rather then height). Compare to overlap with Tiny Guy, Huge Girl and contrast to Huge Guy, Tiny Girl.


Examples:

    open/close all folders 

     Anime and Manga 
  • In Air Master, the eponymous streetfighter—real name, "Maki"—is this, as well as a Huge Schoolgirl and an Action Girl. During the opening, she's seen walking through an average, crowded Tokyo street—heads and shoulders above everyone else. Most of her height is in her legs, which is handy since they're also her main weapon. As for being "stunning"... well, several guys in the show seems to think so, at least.
  • Axis Powers Hetalia:
    • The gender flipped version of Russia is a very beautiful, long-haired Winter Royal Lady who easily is the tallest of the Nyotalia girls.
    • Also, the genderflipped version of Sweden is a Lady of War with glasses and just as long hair. We're not sure of how exactly tall she is, but consider that the original Sweden is at least 6'0"...
  • Sakaki from Azumanga Daioh, is simply huge for a 16 year old Japanese girl at 1.74m. This troubles her a lot as she's very shy and obsessed with everything small and cute.
  • Rangiku Matsumoto of Bleach skirts the line at 5'8", but her height is most definitely not her most noticeable trait.
  • Code Geass has several: Cornelia Li Britannia, Viletta Nu, Milly Ashford and Marianne vi Britannia come to mind quickly, though even Euphie is 5 foot 7. Clearly Britannians breed for height along with bust and ham.
  • Noi of Dorohedoro is very tall (according to the Japanese Wikipedia, she's about 6'10"). She's quite buxom as well. Despite Most Common Superpower, she's been mistaken for a man numerous times by other characters, and most readers tend to get a Samus Is a Girl moment when they see her maskless for the first time. Fan art tends to depict her carrying her partner Shin in her arms.
  • Cana and Evergreen from Fairy Tail are 5'8" and 5'9", respectively, according to the official height chart. Since Fairy Tail is a World of Buxom, where all of the protagonists are goodlooking, they also qualify as stunners.
  • Gate: In the novel and manga versions, Mari Kurokawa is 190cm/6'3". She looks very imposing compared to the other characters, and she's a beauty whom Tuka has a crush on. In the anime, she is 175cm/5'7", but still towers over the other girls.
  • Mora Bascht of Gundam 0083 stands head and shoulders above most of the cast, regardless of their gender. She becomes one half of the show's Beta Couple with Keith, who is initially put off and intimidated by her size, but later seems quite happy with her.
  • Though Integra Fairbrook Wingates Hellsing is still dwarfed by Alucard (really not much of an accomplishment), she still sees eye to eye with the more average height male characters in the series and towers over the shorter ones.
  • Motoko in Love Hina is taller than Keitaro and the other girls and it's shown she feels awkward about it, but it's made clear she's considered attractive none the less.
  • Half of the premise of Lovely Complex is Risa Koizumi, a girl taller than average. The other half being Atsushi Ootani, a boy shorter than usual.
  • Mahou Sensei Negima!:
    • Kaede (181cm), Chachamaru (174cm), Mana (184cm), Akira (175cm), Ayaka (173cm), and Chizuru (172cm). Most of them regularly wear fanservicey clothing and/or are prone to being depicted in the nude via either public bathing/hot spring scenes or a misfired Flans Exarmatio spell from Negi, and the only potential Love Interests for them are a couple of 10 year olds. Lampshaded by Chisame on how her class is so abnormal in every aspect including beauties, breast size, and height.
    • There's also Mahora's head nurse and guidance counselor, Shizuna Minamoto. She's a tall, ravishing Meganekko with blue hair that flows down her back, and she's quite buxom as well (her cans are 99cm). Negi is literally introduced to her via Marshmallow Hell.
  • One Piece:
    • Nico Robin, the womanly archeologist, is the third tallest Straw Hat pirate, standing 188 cm (6'2" ft.), more than most male crew members.
    • Boa Hancock, whose official height is a whopping 191 cm (that's over six feet three inches) is very obviously beautiful both to readers and in-universe characters. In fact, she's called the most beautiful woman in the world at one point. It fits, since she's the empress of an island of amazons.
    • The mermaid princess Shirahoshi takes this Up to Eleven, as she has many admirers, and is utterly gigantic.
    • Two of Big Mom's daughters, Charlotte Smoothie and Charlotte Praline, easily tower over allies and enemies. Smoothie is implied to be at least 3 meters tall, plus she possesses extremely long legs; on the other hand Praline is a huge half-mermaid with a very nice bust and who's around twice the size of her beloved merman husband, Aladine of the Sun Pirates.
  • Twilight Suzuka from Outlaw Star is listed as being 5'9", though she's often drawn as tall as or slightly taller than Gene (5'11"). Either way she towers over the other two women in the main cast and is known for being very attractive, judging by the title "The Beautiful Assassin."
  • Makoto (Sailor Jupiter) from Sailor Moon is the tallest and strongest of the Inner Senshi at 5'6" (the rest average around 5' even). Haruka (Sailor Uranus) takes it to even more drastic levels at 5'8". Though it should be noted each approaches the Stunner part from different angles. Makoto's known to be busty and proud of it while Haruka's less prominent bust makes her look athletically trim.
  • Slayers: Naga is actually taller than Gourry, a fact which her sister, Amelia, mentions offhandedly. And you can't help but see her figure (especially THOSE things), since she wanders around in next to no clothing.
  • Five of the Seven Mortal Sins are this, with Lucifer at 5'7", Belial at 5'9", Asmodeus at 5'10", Mammon is 5'11" and Satan is 6ft tall. And they're all Hot as Hell.
  • Tsubaki Nakatsukasa from Soul Eater is about a head taller (anywhere from 5'7" to 5'9") than most of the teenaged Weapons/Meisters. Same goes for Elizabeth "Liz" Thompson, who's about the same height as Tsubaki or at least just a little shorter. Thing is, Liz has nothing on Tsubaki's stack; in fact her little sister Patty outmeasures her there.
  • Hikaru Ohno of Take On Me. Quoting the character intro, she's "Six foot one of fun fun fun!"
  • The Big O: Angel is a homage to Fujiko Mine and stands at 5'10". She's usually seen in secretarial garb whenever she isn't donning her pink catsuit and has UST with Roger for most of the series.
  • An older series called "The Kabocha Wine (The Pumpkin Wine)" feature a love story from the short boy Aoba Shunsuke and a big-sized beauty by the name of Natsumi.
  • The title character of The Legend of Mother Sarah is a straight example, since Sarah is a tall, athletic woman who wanders the earth, towers over or is just as tall as most men she runs into and often gets in trouble either for being an attractive female or because she likes to right the wrongs in the places she visits.
  • Sakura from Urusei Yatsura has never been given any height, but once cured of her sickness, she becomes tall, slender and incredibly beautiful, much to the pleasure of Ataru.
  • Variable Geo: Jun Kubota is the primary example, as she's a former Olympic wrestling champion and has the height and physique to show it.
  • In the manga Walkin' Butterfly, the protagonist bemoans the fact that she's super-tall until she realizes that most models are actually quite tall.
  • Kagari Ayaka from Witch Craft Works. The male protagonist Honoka barely reaches her chest (although the size seems to change from chapter to chapter), making her at least 6 feet tall. She is also a Kuudere with G-cup breasts, dark, thigh-long hair (except when she is in battle, where it becomes fire-like), and a very nice body. It shows in the many, many, many instances where she carries Honoka bride style.
  • Though her height is never revealed, Yuuko Ichihara from ×××HOLiC is almost the same height as Kurogane, which means she's probably about six feet tall.
  • Mai Kujaku/Valentine from Yu-Gi-Oh! stands almost eye to eye with Katsuya Jounouchi/Joey Wheeler, who is 178 cm (5'10").

    Comic Books 
DC
  • Grace Choi, the former bouncer first introduced in Batman and the Outsiders. In addition to being an Amazonian Beauty, she's about seven feet tall.
  • By default, Giganta of The DCU is 6'6". Her usual attire is a leopard-skin two-piece loincloth, although she swapped it out for a leather jumpsuit as of One Year Later.
  • Maxima, sometime-villain, sometime-heroine and one-time suitor of Superman, had a stature befitting her name, standing at 6'2".
  • Big Barda from New Gods is... BIG. As seen in the trope image, she towers over her husband Scott/Mr. Miracle (see the page image), and indeed over most heroes, male or female. Including Superman. note 
  • Knockout, another of the Apokoliptian New Gods, and a supporting character in the Superboy and Secret Six books, also qualifies.
  • Being a Statuesque Stunner seems to be something of a requirement for membership in Darksied's Female Furies. Lashina and minor member Artemis are 6'6" and 6'3" respectively and even Granny Goodness is 5'10" and while she definitely doesn't fit the trope now at least one story set in her youth showed her as a very hot looking Bald Woman.
  • Starfire of the Teen Titans is especially tall at 1,93 m (6'4") (with '80s Hair and heels often adding even more inches to that!).
  • Wonder Woman, of course. And many other women from Paradise Island, as well. In Wondy's case this is especially noticeable in DC: The New Frontier when she gets down from a table she was standing on and shows that she's taller than Superman.
  • Diana's fellow Amazon and one time stand in Artemis is even taller. Like Wondy her height has been edging up over the years from 6 foot even in her original stats to a current 6'2".
  • Other DC Comics superheroines qualify, though sometimes inconsistently, Depending on the Artist:
    • Huntress (listed at 5'11")
    • Power Girl (listed at 1 m 80 (5'11"))
    • Raven (sometimes listed at 5'11")
    • Supergirl tends to be portrayed as a woman of roughly above average height at 5'7", but occasionally taller, particularly if shown as her "future self" of Superwoman. Not too surprising, since Power Girl is essentially Supergirl's "grownup" counterpart from a parallel Earth. One of her villains -Nightflame, who showed up in Demon Spawn- is about two heads taller than Supergirl.
    • Andromeda, Supergirl's Captain Ersatz in the Legion of Super-Heroes, is 6'2".
  • Mother Panic, AKA Violet Paige, is a Gotham socialite who stands exactly 6'0".

Marvel

Other
  • Agent327: Olga Lawina is a tall woman, but also very beautiful.
  • For some reason (probably because it's easy to draw elegant proportions with a taller character), all the beautiful women in Astérix are absolutely huge. Particularly jarring when Asterix asks Obelix if he fancies "little Panacea", when Asterix is absolutely tiny and Panacea is shown to be the same height as the colossal Obelix. The single exception in the entire comic run is Influenza, who is much more cute than she is beautiful and seems to be considered attractive especially because of her unusual smallness.
    • Camomilla in Asterix and the Picts is also quite short, but that book was drawn by a different artist.
  • Meriem, the eponymous heroine of Cavewoman, towers over her boyfriend Bruce and most of the other men in Marshville.
  • In Echo, the Phi-project is slowly altering Julie Martin's body, making her grow larger and larger until she towers over everybody else in the group. People soon begin to assume that she is an actress or model, and when she denies anything of the sort they refuse to accept that she is not at least somehow a sex icon.
  • The villainess Queen of Fables is 5'10''.
  • Aspen Matthews of Fathom measures in at 5' 8", is lithe and curvaceous, and is usually clad in a bikini, tops.
  • Caitlin Fairchild of Gen¹³ is 6'4".
  • Jem and the Holograms is full of tall women. Clash is the tallest female, at 6'1 (only an inch shorter than Rio). Pizzaz, Kimber, Jem, and Jetta in particular are meant to be attractive and are all above average height.
  • Ms. Tree stands six foot even.
  • Red Sonja (5'11") is definitely this, as well as an Amazonian Beauty.
  • Shanna the She-Devil stands at 5'10".
  • Ari, the resident Gorgon starlet from The Demon Mages, clocks in at 6'5''.
  • Channon Yarrow of Transmetropolitan is a head taller than everyone else in the cast, and supported herself through journalism school as a stripper. She is the one character who is both depicted and described as classically beautiful.
  • Lady Death was originally a Sexy Scandinavian woman named Hope before becoming an immortal warrior-sorceress. As such, her height and amazonian physique is often emphasized.

    Fan Works 
  • Child of the Storm has a couple:
    • Sif (just about - she's 5'9'') who is both stunning and every bit the warrior goddess.
    • Carol, who looks like her canon counterpart 14/15 (meaning that she's nearly 6' tall, has the Most Common Superpower and could pass for 21/22 without even trying) and consequently draws male attention like iron filings to a magnet (usually Played for Drama). Her temporarily aged up self is basically the same, but with the finishing touches (including more muscle and maybe an inch of height) applied.
    • Diana, being on the cusp of adolescence (and a pre-teen/teenage Wonder Woman) and mainly a Badass Adorable is shown by the brief Plot-Relevant Age-Up to be this as an adult, being described as about the same height as Carol, a little more muscular and absolutely jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Considering who she is, this is hardly surprising.
  • In Origin Story, Alex just has that effect on people. She's 6'2" tall and built like a body-builder. Combine this with the Most Common Superpower and the effect is complete.
  • Friendship Is Magical Girls has Applejack and, to a lesser extent, Rarity.
  • Xanna (aka Kyuubi in the Reaching for a Dream series is initially 6'4" but after ascending godhood, she makes her new body over seven feet tall. Several characters remark on her beauty.
  • In Origins, a Mass Effect/Star Wars/Borderlands/Halo Massive Multiplayer Crossover, Sarah the Force-sensitive Siren is 2m (6'6") tall, was specifically designed by her creators to fit in among the most common species (humans), and has purple hair. Somewhat left up to the reader, it is nonetheless strongly implied she is essentially a super-powered, but otherwise attractive (unless she's angry) human-looking (colors aside) woman.
  • Suze in Enter the Dragon is noted as being the "epitome of Grecian beauty" from the waist up and as a centaur, she's a little over eight feet tall.
  • There are several in Pokémon Reset Bloodlines, such as Misty, Iris, Cynthia, Lorelei, Cheryl, Lucy, Belladona, Iolani, Betty and Velvet. There's the possibility that the last four are half sisters that inherited the height from their shared father. Iris is particularly statuesque given that she's even taller than Ash who's taller than his mother.

    Film - Animated 

    Film - Live Action 
  • Singer/actress Grace Jones fits this trope in real life (she's five-foot-ten) and her film roles, most notably A View to a Kill and Conan the Destroyer.
  • Alice in Wonderland (2010): Alice is this to the Knave of Hearts when she's 9-foot tall.
  • Ellen Ripley in Alien. (In fact, Sigourney Weaver could qualify too, being 5'11''.)
  • Avatar: Technically any female Na'vi, especially Neytiri, who run around in skimpy outfits.
  • Karla Fry from Beverly Hills Cop II (mentioned in the quote above), portrayed by Brigitte Nielsen, a Statuesque Stunner herself.
  • Goldengirl has Goldine (played by 5' 11" Susan Anton, though promotional materials advertised her as 6' 2"), created through experimental drugs by a German scientist which would enhance the test subject into a perfect athlete.
  • Real-life supermodel Amber Valetta in Hitch, especially compared to her suitor Kevin James.
  • Callahan in the Police Academy movies. Also qualifies as an Amazonian Beauty, she's tall, blonde, busty, with a hard-toned and perfect figure. It's very hard for men to work out in the same gym that she is.
  • The producers invoked this trope intentionally in Singin' in the Rain through a bit of flim-flammery. In her heels, Cyd Charisse is actually taller than Gene Kelly in their dance number together, but in reality, both were only 5' 7" tall. They were shot from upward angles to accentuate their heights.
  • Species stars Natasha Henstridge because such a hot and tall (5' 9½"\1,77 m) woman must clearly be an alien. The sequels followed the same model, with parts 3 and 4 having 5' 8" actresses Sunny Mabrey and Helena Mattsson.
  • Captain Phasma from The Force Awakens: played by Gwendoline Christie (6'3"). Somewhat justified, originally Phasma's character was planned to be played by a male actor, and the outfit was one of the prototypes intended to be given to Kylo Ren. The idea was eventually scrapped, the chrome armor became a standalone character and the role was given by Christie instead.
  • The Fifth Element
    • Leeloo, as described by Korban Dallas:
    Korban: 5'9", blue eyes, long legs, great skin. Y'know, perfect.
    • Diva Plavalaguna, though the character is noticeably taller than her actress Maïwenn Le Besco (who still happens to be 5'8").
  • X-Men Film Series:
  • Almost every female character from Who Framed Roger Rabbit are attractive tall women. The voluptuous Jessica towers both Roger Rabbit and Eddie Valiant. And on a human level there is Dolores (Joanna Cassidy is 5' 9"/175 cm), Eddie's girlfriend. Even Baby Herman's "nanny" is tall.
  • DC Extended Universe
  • Uma Thurman, who plays The Bride in Kill Bill, stands 5'11".

    Literature 
  • Sarene from Elantris. Only Roaden finds her attractive.
  • Cimorene of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles is mentioned to be as tall as most men.
  • Honor Harrington, who at her 188 cm (6'2") is one of the taller characters in the series. The fact that she considered herself a Huge Schoolgirl in her youth, with attendant self-esteem issues, had large implications in the early books.
  • In Thud!, Nobby's stripper girlfriend Tawnee is described as being over six feet tall.
  • Evelyn, the narrator and protagonist of "Paper Chains" by Jane Langton, is a six-foot red-head. And her parents have always encouraged her not to slouch.
  • In the Hurog duology, Ward has a crush on a woman who is very tall, and has more muscles than many men. His thoughts imply that he considers this very attractive; mainly because he's a Gentle Giant and other women might be a bit too frail and delicate for his tastes.
  • Lanfear of The Wheel of Time, who is consistently stated to be the World's Most Beautiful Woman and stands almost as tall as the 6'6" Rand al'Thor.
  • Many female characters in The Dresden Files, both human (Charity, Molly, Georgia, etc.) and otherwise (Gard, Lara, Lea, etc.), to the point that Author Appeal is strongly suspected.
    • However, notably averted with the most prominent female of the series: Karrin Murphy is five feet even.
  • Galadriel of The Lord of the Rings et al is this. She is said to be 6'4 (the tallest elf woman ever born) and one of the most stunning beauties in Middle Earth. She is played by Cate Blanchett in the film series who is 5'9 and was deliberately filmed at angles that made her seem a lot taller than most of the other characters.
  • Lizzy of the web-novel Domina is described as bronze-skinned, golden-eyed, and over six feet. Sounds like the description of a Greek goddess.
  • Patrick Tilley's Star Wartz features Shalimar, who is described as "seven feet of exotic fantasy fodder". A significant chunk of the hero's motivation includes the distant hope of sleeping with her. It later turns out the top eight inches or so are the result of her hairstyle. 6'4" is still pretty tall, though.
  • Aside from her muscular physique, Amazonian Beauty Monica Figuerola of The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest is this too, being described as being 6 feet tall.
  • In "The Hedge Knight", one of the Tales of Dunk and Egg that are prequels to George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, we have the brief romance between Ser Duncan the Tall and a Puppeteer Tanselle Too-Tall. During their exchange of names, Tanselle notes that she often gets reactions regarding this trope because of her height.
  • Isabelle Lightwood from The Mortal Instruments is very tall and beautiful, attracting the attention of many boys. According to Jace, Isabelle hates being taller than most boys her age and would rather be dainty and petite.
  • Sadie from 11/22/63 is about 6'1" and, by all accounts, quite the bombshell.
  • Madame Maxime in the Harry Potter series is described as incredibly attractive. She is secretly half-giant but she hides her condition making herself pass as just "very tall".

    Live Action TV 
  • 5' 11" (1,8 m) Adrianne Palicki, came to play a comics hero in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Bobbi Morse\Mockingbird. She's at least one head taller than the other girls in the team, and one of those even starts admiring Bobbi too much. She's taller than everyone in the team except for Mack.
  • Steven Tyler committed a serious faux pas on season 11 of American Idol by referring to Shannon Magrane, who is over six feet tall at age 16, as "hot, humid, and happening". Directly to her father's face.
  • Catwoman, as played by Julie Newmar on Batman, was 5'11". Wearing heels, she even towered over her own henchmen.
  • Number Six of Battlestar Galactica (2003), played by fanboy-endorsed Tricia Helfer who stands at 5'11". Especially in the miniseries she towers over 5'8" James Callis (Baltar). Number Eight AKA Sharon Valerii also counts, as she's played by Grace Park, who, at 5'9" is unusually tall compared to most Asian women.
  • On Bones Michaela Conlin, who is a little over 5'8" is actually taller than the man who plays her husband. The eponymous protagonist herself is a good-looking woman who stands 5'9.
  • From Castle, Kate Beckett (played by 5'9'' Stana Katic), combined with her looks, her clothes and everything else, makes her really, really Ms. Fanservice material.
  • Chuck has Sarah, Ellie, Carina... they really like their leggy Valkyries.
  • Companion/miniskirt enthusiast Amy Pond of Doctor Who, portrayed by the 5'11" Karen Gillan. Lampshaded by her somewhat more petite successor, Clara Oswald, when she remarks in the mini-episode "Clara and the TARDIS" (upon seeing a photo of the miniskirted Amy), "My God that woman is made of legs!"
  • Game of Thrones:
    • Like in the novels, Sansa Stark is exceptionally tall and statuesque. Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa, is taller at 5'9'' than most men in the cast, made easier by several of the adult male actors not being particularly tall. Her height is lampshaded by Cersei in their first meeting.
    • Gwendoline Christie, who is Brienne of Tarth, is absolutely gargantuan at 6'3" but is far more attractive than the character described in the novels. Word of God has it that part of what won her the role of Brienne is that she showed up to her audition done up to look as homely as Brienne does in the books (on top of showing up in an actual suit of armor).
  • Barbara Feldon on Get Smart had to slump a bit next to star Don Adams.
  • Ghost Whisperer: Andrea Moreno (Aisha Tyler), Melinda's six-foot-tall Black Best Friend - Andrea mentioned in one episode how being a tall black woman made it hard for her to get dates in Grandview.
  • Gossip Girl
    • Blake Lively is taller than her co-star Leighton Meester (she's a touch over 5'10", Leighton... isn't) and many of the rest of the cast, a point acknowledged in "The Magnificent Archibalds":
    Aaron: Serena's life is complicated?
    Dan: Yeah. I don't know about you but the Serena I know has long, flowing blonde hair, towers over both of us?note 
    • Taylor Momsen who plays Jenny isn't much far behind at 5'8.
    • Kelly Rutherford who plays Blake's on-screen mother isn't much far behind at height (she's 5'8) and certainly beauty.
  • On How I Met Your Mother, Robin is definitely considered attractive. Marshall once called Robin "freakishly tall." Of course, she's got nothing on the women in Marshall's home town.
  • Sarah MacKenzie from JAG is the Ms. Fanservice of the show. Although the two previous female leads Caitlin Pike and Meg Austin were a bit taller.
  • In an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, a perp refers to Casey Novak as "blonde and statuesque." Diane Neal is 5'10 and quite attractive, both in-universe and out. Her predecessor, Alexandra Cabot is no slouch either, being only slightly shorter than Novak and is very good-looking herself.
  • An example of this Trope appeared as far back as Leave It to Beaver, believe it or not. Wally's school was having a formal dance with another school where the boys were matched with girls from the other school (and vice-versa) as dance partners by lottery, and one of Wally's rather sneaky friends - who had obtained the rival school's yearbook - offered to trade with him. At first it seemed like a bargain, because the girl was sweet and a knockout; however, she was very tall. (A handicap for dancing.) Fortunately, the girl was able to switch from heels to flats and get rid of a corset in order to match his size better.
  • My Living Doll also starred Julie Newmar, this time as a female android who towered over most male cast members.
  • Once Upon a Time has Red Riding Hood/Ruby, very lusty and fan servicey and played by Meghan Ory, who is 5' 8"
  • Eliza Dooley of Selfie-tall, beautiful, long legs, played by Karen Gillan.
  • Mini from Skins fits all the requirements of this trope, with Freya Mavor, the actress who plays her, being a 5'10" blonde with light eyes, freckles and wavy hair.
  • Smallville: Lois Lane (As played by the 5'8" Erica Durance) fits the bill nicely, oozing Fanservice and Buxom Is Better non-stop.
  • Lost's Juliet Burke, played by 5'9" Elizabeth Mitchell
  • In Warehouse 13, Myka Bering stands at 5'9"-only two inches shorter than her partner Pete-and often wears high heels for work, not to mention short and tight dresses on several occasions.
  • Cat Deeley, at 5'9" and always in heels, usually towers over the contestants on So You Think You Can Dance.
  • Any of the Star Trek characters played by 6'2" tall Suzie Plakson: Dr. Selar, K'Ehleyr, the female Q and Tarah. Michelle Forbes, who played Ro Laren on Star Trek: The Next Generation, is a little shorter at 5'9, but still cuts quite an imposing figure.
  • The title character of Suddenly Susan, played by Brooke Shields.
  • Laura Prepon, who played Donna Pinciotti on That '70s Show, is 5'10", and throughout the series, was touted as the single hottest girl in Point Place. Add that the other main female is the 5' 4" Mila Kunis, and scenes with them both frequently try to hide the difference.
  • In The Honourable Woman, Dame Julia Walsh, the ever-so-foxy and snarkish head of MI6, is played by Janet McTeer, who is 6' 1".
  • C.J. Cregg from The West Wing. No doubt inspired by her actress, Allison Janney.
    • Lampshaded when the White House decorator tries to get her to redecorate her office to be more like Dolley Madison's.
    Decorator: But it's lovely, and feminine.
    CJ: Dolley-with-an-E Madison was maybe 5'3''.
    Decorator: Yes...?
    CJ: (stands up and stares down at her)
    Decorator: ... Of course.
    • Caused a bit of a problem when C.J. meets a man who is described in-universe as being very handsome. When she meets him she sees that he is, but the actor, Joaquim de Almeida, is not quite 5'6", so Janney had to remain seated throughout the meeting and the scene seemed a little strange.
  • Kristen Johnston is 6' tall, and frequently plays this type of character, but is best known as Sally Solomon in 3rd Rock from the Sun. Much of the comedy in the early seasons comes from the conflict between her stunning Earth body and her alien identity as a warrior.
    • There is a story arc where Sally feels threatened by new policewoman Janice, who is played by the very statuesque professional wrestler Chyna. Two six foot-tall women jostle for dominance. Unforgettably.
  • Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman, who was both tall (5'9) and (of course) dressed in a skintight Leotard of Power.
  • The eponymous character of Xena: Warrior Princess stands 5'10.
  • President Mackenzie Allen of Commander in Chief, who is both gorgeous and played by the 6'-even Geena Davis. In heels, she was often the same height as her on-screen husband, the 6' 4" Kyle Secor. Her height also helped quite a bit in intimidating political opponents, of which she had many.
  • The Arrowverse is flooded with them.
    • From Arrow: Katrina Law (Nyssa Al-Ghul) is 5'8. Jacqueline McInnes Wood (The original Sara Lance) also stands 5'8, but she was then replaced with an actress who is two inches shorter. Female lead Katie Cassidy (Laurel Lance/Black Canary) nearly makes the cut at 5'7 1/2.
    • From The Flash (2014): Both Kelly Frye (Bette Sans Souci/Plastique) and Shantel VanSanten (Patty Spivot) stand 5'8, while Anne Dudek (Tracy Brand) stands a whopping 5'10. Cisco also had a Sexy Secretary who stands 5'11 but only appeared once in an Alternate Timeline during the Season 3 premiere.
    • From Legends of Tomorrow: Stephanie Corneliussen (Valentina Vostok) stands as one of the two (see above) tallest woman on Earth-1 standing a whopping 5'11, Elyse Levesque (Queen Guinevere) is royally gorgeous at 5'9 1/2, and Ciara Renee (Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl) is 5'8.
    • From Supergirl: Melissa Benoist (the title character) is a knockout at 5'8. Her on-screen Arch-Enemy (well, one of them) Britt Morgan (Leslie Willis/Livewire) is stunner and is half an inch taller. Brenda Strong (Lillian Luthor) is the tallest woman in both the show and the franchise at 6 feet tall. Lynda Carter (U.S. President Olivia Marsdin) is also a standout at 5'9 1/2. In both Luthor and Marsdin's cases, they also overlap this trope with Grandma, What Massive Hotness You Have!.
  • Comedienne Miranda Hart stands about six feet tall. Part of the visual comedy of her eponymous show revolves around the size contrast between Miranda and her onscreen mother, the very petite Patricia Hodge. Her onscreen comedy partner Sarah Hadland is also around the five-foot-two mark.
  • Half of the female cast of Spartacus stands between 5'8 - 5'10. Most of them are Action Girls, which is not a bad thing, considering that this is a show about gladiators.
  • Orange Is the New Black
    • Alex Vause is played by 5'10" Laura Prepon.
    • Sophia Burset is played by 5'11" Laverne Cox. Makes sense, since both the character and the actress were born male.
  • The Defenders:
  • In The Night Manager, Elizabeth Debicki (playing Jed Marshall, 6' 2.75") is noticeably taller than Hugh Laurie.
  • In one episode of Seinfeld, George mentions that he'd like to have sex with an extremely tall woman. At the end of the episode, he meets such a woman, though we don't know if he succeeded in sleeping with her.
  • In Space Rangers 1993, Jojo Thorson is played by the 6' tall Marjorie Monaghan.
  • Orphan Black:
    • Aynsley Norris is played by 5'10" Natalie Lynska, and is the tallest woman in the series. Aynsley's height is really noticeable during her Cat Fight with Alison, who is played by the 5'4" Tatiana Maslany.
    • The final season introduces villainous Fair Cop Maddie Enger who is played by 5'9 1/2" Elyse Levesque. She is the second tallest woman in the series after the aforementioned Aynsley.

    Music 
  • The Hollies' "Long Cool Woman (In a Black Dress)", who's "just a five-nine, beautiful tall".
  • Hawkwind incorporated a stage dancer called The Amazing Stacia, who stood well over six feet tall and who, onstage, regarded clothing as a constricting inconvenience.
  • The girl described in "Big and Hot" by The Love Dogs

    Professional Wrestling 
  • Josie Wahlford, aka Minerva, the first recognized world champion in all of professional wrestling, is said to have been six feet tall, which was huge for a woman during the 1890 to 1910 period when she was in her prime.
  • The Fabulous Moolah's main rival in the National Wrestling Alliance during 1975, the 6'1 Sue Green, one of the few women to pin Moolah for the World Women's title but of that exclusive club, she is one of few the NWA were reluctant to recognize and one of the "many" whose victory the WWF refused to acknowledge.
  • Stephanie McMahon is 5 feet, 9 inches.
  • June Synder, the six foot tall founder of the "Southern Belles Wrestling Club".
  • WCW manager and later, WWE "Diva" Stacy Keibler stands at 5'11", in addition to being a very attractive blonde with a famously long pair of legs.
  • In 2001, the Sibling Team of Mr. Excellent and Queen Maya debuted for Italian Championship Wrestling. Maya stands at 185 cm, a full seven (or three inches) taller than her 5'10 brother.
  • Michelle McCool is 5'10".
  • Tully Blanchard's "Perfect 10" valet, Baby Doll, was listed as being 6-foot-1.
  • Annie Social's fairly short. The Tag Team of Wesna Busic and Melanie Cruise which she managed in SHIMMER was not, standing at 5'10 and 6 even. Also, SHIMMER's third singles champion, Madison Eagles, stood at 6'1.
  • The Kongtourage of TNA was made up of the 5'4 Sojournor Bolt, 5'8 Raisha Saeed, 6'0 Awesome Kong and 6'2 Rhaka Khan, in progressing order. TNA's billed heights are often off by an inch or two(or more in the case of Saeed being billed as the 6 something Alissa Flash despite being visibly shorter than Kong) but those were some large ladies either way, excepting Bolt. And their primary enemy was the 5'3 Taylor Wilde.
  • At 6'9, Isis the Amazon is possibly the tallest women to ever take up professional wrestling and is noticeably taller than most male wrestlers.
  • Jessica Love from Finland stands in at 6'1. Hajime Ohara was impressed enough that he chose the then twenty one Love as his partner to help him get one over on his long time rival Ultimo Dragon (who was teaming with Yoshihiro Tajiri at the time).
  • Later, TNA would briefly run with the German born Tag Team of 6'0 Alpha Female and 5'11 Lei'D Tapa(though only Alpha had any hint of being German, Tapa grew up in the Western Hemisphere and was a proud wild Tongan), pitting them against 5'3 Madison Rayne.
  • Chyna was 5 feet, 9 inches and towered over Eddie Guerrero during their storyline together.
  • Charlotte is 5'10", and is one of the tallest women in the WWE during The New '10s.

  • Paige is 5'8", and is one of the renowned beauties (for her Raven Hair, Ivory Skinnote  in particular) in Professional Wrestling.

    Tabletop Games 

    Video Games 
  • Samus Aran from the Metroid series has a listed height of 190 cm (6'3"), though it isn't specified whether that measurement applies to her or her Power Suit. (In-game sprites for armorless Samus are always depicted a bit shorter than their armored counterparts. The trope holds in either instance, though.)
  • The female Avatar in Fire Emblem Awakening has the potential to fit this trope, if the player chooses Build 3 for her (Build 1 is average height, and Build 2 is petite). If chosen, Build 3 Girl Avatar stands almost eye to eye with guys as huge as Vaike, Gregor, Lon'qu or Basilio. And if their character portraits are to be believed, Cordelia, Panne and Kjelle are around the Build 3!Female Avatar's height. They're also referred to as very attractive in-story, specially Cordelia who is quite the hit with guys.
  • While there aren't official heights given for the characters in Fire Emblem Fates, Badass Princess Camilla of Nohr appears to be very tall for a woman, and is the tallest female character in the game going by the official artwork and in-game character models. The main visual shows her leaning against her axe, and if she were standing up fully, she'd be nearly as tall as her eldest brother Xander or her potential husband Ryoma, who are amongst the tallest characters in the game. And as one can clearly see, Camilla's height doesn't detract from her attractiveness one bit.note 
  • Grune of Tales of Legendia is one of the tallest characters in the cast, which enables her to smother her friends, during her quirky amnesiac phase.
  • Judith from Tales of Vesperia is no slouch in the height department either, standing at 175 cm (dead-on 5'9"). She's also explicitly pointed out to be the bustiest.
  • Vanessa Lewis, Sarah Bryant, and Dural from Virtua Fighter. As a guest character in Dead or Alive 5, Sarah even towers above women who are statistically taller than she (which likely has to do with the 6-inch heels she wears, but really because she shares the same body model in game as Christie, who stands at 5'10" and is the tallest woman in the cast).
  • Street Fighter
  • Morrigan from the Darkstalkers series stands at 5'8", and is a Horny Devil who becomes the defacto Ms. Fanservice in any game she appears in.
  • Soul Series:
    • Standing 5'10'', Ivy from is one of the tallest characters, let alone women, in the entire series. Her dominatrix-like outfit is infamous for becoming more and more skimpy with each game.
    • Taki. While she just misses the mark at 5'7", she's practically a giant considering that she's Japanese, especially in the 1500s. She's also the second tallest female, behind Ivy. Of course, that's not even mentioning her tighter-than-skin bodysuit that displays everything in full.
  • Female Hero from Fable III head above any other citizen or mook, except giant enemies.
  • Fran from Final Fantasy XII towers over most of the cast at 6'1¾". And that's not even taking her rabbit ears or stilettos into account!note 
    • Other ladies from the Final Fantasy series who fall into this trope are Celes (5'8") and Fang (5'9").
    • Rips from the Dissidia: Final Fantasy renders make it clear that Cosmos, Ultimecia, and the Cloud of Darkness subscribe to this trope: Cosmos scrapes in at an estimated 5'9", Ultimecia qualifies at around 5'10", and the Cloud of Darkness absolutely blows them all away at roughly 6'7" barefoot.
  • The Metal Gear Solid series has Meryl Silverburgh (1.75m/5'9"), Fortune (?m/?'?"), Sniper Wolf (1.75m/5'9"), EVA (1.78m/5'10"), and The Boss (1.78m/5'10").
  • Rival Schools' Natsu Ayuhara, who is a shade under 6 feet tall (182cm) and gets more than her fair share of fanservice shots. Kyoko Minazuki (173cm/5'8") and Zaki (175cm/5'9") are also as pretty as they are tall, but their height isn't paid attention to like Natsu's is.
  • Lili Rochefort from Tekken stands at 5'9". According to official sources, Jun Kazama and Kunimitsu also count. Normally, neither are particular fanservicey, but Jun's 1P outfit consists of a midriff-baring top and Zettai Ryouiki, while Kuni received a Taki-esque jumpsuit (complete with a Cleavage Window) as her 3P outfit in Tekken Tag Tournament as well as slightly more revealing combat attire in TTT2.
    • Christie Monteiro also counts as she is 5'8", bonus points for being a Spicy Latina.
    • Now that Harada has revealed that Leo is, in fact, a girl note , she counts, standing at 5'8". She's not particularly used for eye-candy, though, unless the player chooses to place her in a bikini in Tag 2.
  • There are quite a few from The King of Fighters: Whip (173cm/5'8"), Shermie (173cm/5'8"), Elisabeth (174cm/5'8½"), Lien (174cm/5'8½"), Zarina (174cm/5'8½"), King (175cm/5'9"), Luise (175cm/5'9"), Leona (176cm/5'9¼"), Mature (177cm/5'9.6"), Vice (178cm/5'10"), Luong (180cm/5'11") Foxy (181cm/5'11⅓"), Vanessa (182cm/6'), Diana (188cm/6'2"), and especially Jun (199cm/6'6.3"). Whip and Foxy (and depending on the game, King and Elisabeth) are more conservatively dressed than most, but their depiction in artwork tends to say otherwise... and "more conservatively dressed" doesn't equal to "less attractive" either.
  • Amazonian Beauty Angela Belti of Power Instinct stands at over 6 feet tall.
  • Bayonetta clocks in at a truly incredible 7 feet, 7 inches. She's Got Legs is one hell of an understatement.
  • Like with most things concerning Touhou, character height mostly depends on the preference of fans, with the two common ones being:
    • Stage 6 Bosses and those of authority (usually one and the same, except for Satori Komeiji, who is a Stage 4 boss) are usually on the taller side of things, with few exceptions like Remilia Scarlet, Suika Ibuki, Eiki Shiki, Satori Komeiji and Shinmyoumaru Sukuna.
    • Komachi Onozuka and Yuugi Hoshiguma are universally portrayed as quite tall, with the latter also doubling as an Amazonian Beauty in a lot of fanart.
  • Tina and Lisa from the Dead or Alive series are 174cm/5'9", and Christie is 177cm/5'10". Considering that this is DOA we're talking about here, it's almost not worth mentioning their sex appeal.
    • The busty Canon Immigrant Rachel in Dead or Alive 5: Ultimate has been revealed to stand 172cm/5'8".
    • Dead or Alive 5: Ultimate DLC character [[Tengu Nyotengu]] stands at 172cm/5'8"; being Japanese makes it icing on the cake.
  • Golden Axe features Red Sonja Captain Ersatz Tyris Flare, who stands at 5'8".
  • Samurai Warriors has Naotora Ii, who, at 5'9", towers above most female characters. This is due in no small part to her long and powerful legs.
  • The Dark Queen from Battletoads stands at 6 feet tall, according to official stats. Although that doesn't explain how she is a giant compared to the Battletoads themselves in the original, who are supposed to be even taller.
  • Oulan from Suikoden II towers even over Viktor and Pesmerga, who are both over six feet tall, and is in fact the tallest humanoid character in the entire game, only beat out by the large-size beasts. Sid appears taller, but only because of his wings. Jeane also counts (as well as for every other game thereafter), being only slightly shorter than Viktor and wearing nothing but see-through gauze on her person.
  • Exaggerated with Hot Goddess Rijin from Muramasa: The Demon Blade, a giantess approximately 3.5 times the size of the player. She dwarfs every humanoid character in the game. This is especially notable when she stands opposite of her romantic partner Fujin, who is a tiny, adorable imp.
  • Most female Norns in Guild Wars: Eye of the North (as well as Guild Wars 2) can safely count as this, along with Amazonian Beauty. They're all at LEAST nine feet tall. And most of them can transform into werebears.
  • In Rift, female Bahmi are taller than male Ethians, but can be as attractive as any race.
  • City of Heroes, with its highly customizable character creator, lets players invoke this... however, one dev-created example is the hero Swan, who stands near Manticore (the shortest NPC male), and is about 2 feet taller than him.
  • Merveille from Solatorobo stands at 180cm/5'11", making her much taller than many of the male characters who have their heights listed. In fact, the only character stated to be taller than her is Big Bad Bruno, who is 190cm/6'3". While no one comments on her appearance specifically, the manual describes her as attractive and Béluga seems quite fond of her as well, though he may be interested in her mind as much as anything.
  • The female Ogres from Dragon Quest X are taller than every other player character save their Spear Counterparts, and are very attractive to boot.
  • Luminous Arc has resident Ms. Fanservice Vanessa. Though she doesn't have an official height, she towers over the teenage protagonists and has a few inches on all the adults — in fact, the only person taller than her without the aid of a Nice Hat is the Final Boss. The facts she's rather abundantly proportioned only makes her seem even bigger than she already is.
  • One of the few things you cannot modify about your character in Saints Row is their height. Thus, a female Boss towers above most other characters at over six feet.
  • Xenoblade: At nearly 7ft. tall, Miqol's daughter, Vanea, towers above Shulk and his companions; making her the tallest character in the game. Though no one comments on her height, or her figure, even though it's practically on full display.
  • Mortal Kombat:
    • According to her official bio, Sonya Blade stands at 5'10". And from the look of things, Cassie Cage is just as tall as Mama Blade.
    • Both Kitana and Mileena tops this by being a mear centimeter taller, but the latter provides Fan Disservice.
  • In Skullgirls, Parasoul and Valentine. Parasoul stands at 5'10", and her upright posture makes her height very obvious. Valentine is even taller, at a full 6'0", but it's harder to notice because she's usually in a crouching ninja stance. Eliza is one too at 5'11''.
  • Mass Effect features a few tall, beautiful women, notably Nyreen Kandros (who, as a turian, is naturally about a head taller than most humans), Tali (who is the tallest female squadmate in the second game; notable as she is a quarian, who are naturally slightly shorter than most humans), and EDI (an artificial intelligence in a robot body in the third game, which is taller than most of the other female squadmates).
    • Vetra Nyx, a female turian squadmate in the fourth game, has a canon height of about 6'6". Naturally she towers above pretty much everyone around her.
  • BlazBlue:
    • As of third game in the series Chronophantasma, Bullet at 175cm (about 5' 9'').
    • Litchi Faye-Ling is 170cm (about 5'7"), but given that she's Chinese she qualifies perfectly.
  • Super Mario Bros. tends to liberally use Your Size May Vary, and doesn't really have much in the way of official heights, but nearly every human female in the series is much taller than Mario and the other male humans. Princess Peach is always at least a head taller than Mario, Rosalina is a head taller than Peach, and then there's Pauline. Originally she was about the same height as Peach, but in Super Mario Odyessy she now towers over Mario, who doesn't even reach her waist.
  • Donkey Kong:
    • Candy Kong is the tallest female Kong of the Kong family, and the only Kong that is taller than her is Chunky Kong but then again, Chunky is The Big Guy of the Kong family.
    • Tiny Kong became this after she was redesigned in Diddy Kong Racing DS. Comparing her with Peach and Daisy in Mario Super Sluggers, she is slightly taller than Peach.
    • Kalypso from Donkey Kong Barrel Blast is shown to be somewhere inbetween Candy's and Tiny's height, not counting her big afro.
  • Elise Riggs from the SSX series stands at 5'11" (180cm).
  • The Legend of Zelda:
    • Midna's true form in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess positively towers over Zelda and Link, the latter of whom is stunned by her beauty. Princess Zelda herself is also this, being very tall and slender in most of her appearances as an adult. This is especially notable in the Super Smash Bros.. series, were she is roughly the same height as Zero Suit Samus.
    • The Gerudo in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are all roughly twice the height of Link, with one lamenting that men find her intimidating despite the fact that she's "only eight feet tall".
  • From Dragon Age: Inquisition, a female qunari Inquisitor towers over the rest of the cast, with the exception of Iron Bull, a fellow qunari. Sera in particular considers her "well fit" and has her train of thought visibly derail upon meeting her.
  • The Plain Doll from Bloodborne is noticeably taller than the Hunter, regardless of their gender. Lady Maria, the person whom the doll was modelled after, was as tall as the doll itself.
  • The Elder Scrolls Online has Lyris Titanborn, a companion who looks like Sarah Michelle Gellar were she the size of a truck. How tall she is exactly is unknown, but she is half Nord and half giant, and the biggest tallest Player Character that could possibly be made up, next to Lyris they are positively dwarfed.
  • In Corruption of Champions, several of your followers and a few npcs as well are this: Phylla the ant-girl (5'8"), Izma the Tigershark (~6'0") Helspawn the salamander (6'0"), Marble (over 6'), Kiha the pseudo-dragon (6'1"), Helia/Hel the salamander (7'0"), Isabella (6'6"~7'0"), Ember the dragon, (7'1"), Minverva (8'5"), The Sand Mother (8'6"), and Izumi the oni (9'0").
  • While her actual height is unknown, Toriel in Undertale is quite tall compared to the other monsters while Asgore, her ex husband, is much taller than she is. Toriel is a boss monster in the form of a somewhat elderly goat and many monsters within the game's internet find her very attractive. When she finds out about it, Toriel doesn't understand why people would even find someone like her old self attractive to begin with.
  • Inara the Stone Warden Paladins is notable for being the first female Front Line champion introduced and also the tallest champion in the game, eclipsing the previous holder of that title, Fernando.
  • The women in the Batman: Arkham Series are all pretty tall, the only one shorter than 5'7" is teenage Barbara Gordon in Origins who's 5'2". In particular, there's Poison Ivy (5'8"), Christina Bell (5'9"), Copperhead (5'10") and adult Barbara Gordon (5'11", though she is wheelchair-bound by that point.)

    Visual Novels 
  • Kyoko Ashihara from Crescendo ~Eien Dato Omotte Ita Ano Koro~ is self-conscious about her height, but in her ending the lead character plays it up as a plus. "It means I don't have to bend over to kiss you."
  • Lilly Satou from Katawa Shoujo is an elegant, very attractive and the tallest girl in the cast. She's even slightly taller than Hisao. Being half Scottish is very likely to have contributed to her height.
  • Bri in Gender Bender DNA Twister Extreme. She was already decently tall before her Gender Bender, but unlike everyone else in the game turning into a woman actually made her taller rather than shorter, which doesn't hurt her romantic options one bit.

    Webcomics 
  • Sekhmet, Shanti and Blitz, from The Green Eyed Sniper are tall and muscular women belonging to an engineered species called A.I.M.S. Sekhmet is 6′ 6″ (1.98 m) and is among the strongest representatives of her species. Shanti is 6′ 1″ (1.86 m). Although less strong than Sekhmet, she could easily crush a human head with her bare hands. Blitz is shorter, at 5′ 9″ (1.80 m). Even if she is a less powerful A.I.M.S., she is still far stronger than the strongest human.
  • From Polymer City Chronicles, Mistress Laura and Lynn Deanna "Lindy" Jones (respectively modeled after Lady Death and Lara Croft) are both 5'9". Blue-Skinned Space Babe Andrah is a towering 7'1" (her mohawk adds on another seven inches), which makes her marriage to the scrawny, 5'8" Dr. Otto Bonn, Ph.D. all the more noticeable. Thanks to Chris Morrison's distinctive style, in addition to being large, these women sport oversized bosoms and ripped physiques.
  • Stephanie Rossum in Groovy, Kinda stands about 6'5". She's blonde, with a nice figure, and a personality which has been described as "ridiculously adorable." Oh, and she's a robot.
  • Any female drow in Drowtales falls under this by default, since female drowolath average around six feet, but Mel'arnach deserves special mention for towering over even the other women and being the Ms. Fanservice. Generally speaking drowolath females are taller than the males, though there are exceptions, including Valo (on the left), who is head and shoulders above almost everyone, and the opposite is true for drowussu, where the males are generally taller than the females.
  • Di from Fans! is taller than just about everyone, male or female, hot and athletic. For bonus humor, her mentor is Rumiko, who is tiny.
  • Phix of Wapsi Square tends towards this in her human form. It would seem that Monica's boss likes taller women.
  • El Goonish Shive:
    • Amanda is large-breasted and exploits it with a Form-Fitting Wardrobe, in addition to be lusted after by Lisa. Word of God puts her at 5'10".
    • Susan, as due to a growth spurt in the Summer arc has made her able to bump into the top shelf of her locker, making her around 5'8" as per Word of God.
  • At 6'1", Kelu of Far to the North towers over every man yet shown. It's apparently a feature of her Northern blood. When she finds a Saengorian woman named Junuka actually a man Disguised in Drag she teases her Saengorian sister-in-law by saying "This one is almost as tall as I am, there's hope for you Southern girls yet." Junuka later comments on how Kelu has "legs like a horse" when she's running through the snow.
  • DiDi of Ménage à 3 is as tall as or taller than most of the cast (which includes a few other female characters who'd be considered statuesque and stunning in most contexts), and is frequently called an "amazon", with good reason. She also has an enormous cup size, is considered one of the most beautiful women in the comic, and is the primary Ms. Fanservice of the series (despite some ferocious competition).
  • Nina in Between Failures. She's the tallest member of the cast (around 6'3", according to the cast page), two of the male characters have actively expressed interest in her, a third admits that he finds her attractive (but didn't chase after her due to Better as Friends), and there are hints that one of the female employees also finds her attractive.
  • Ruby of Ruby Nation is 9'1" thanks to Applied Phlebotinum, taking this trope to a ridiculous degree.
  • Heartcore's Amethyst Lashiec stands 5' 10", and rocks some serious Big Breast Pride.
  • In The Inexplicable Adventures of Bob! Princess Voluptua is taller than almost every other major character in the comic. This reflects the fact that she is our solar system's chief authority figure.
  • Muneca Powell of Pacificators is over six feet tall.
  • Downplayed in Commander Kitty on account of being a Funny Animal, but it's clear CK initially finds Zenith sexy (when she's not sporting a Nightmare Face), and even without her long ears, she's noticeably taller than any male character besides the occasional Top-Heavy Guy.
  • Amazonian Beauty Tetsuko stands 6'3".
  • Zoé of Sandra on the Rocks is an experienced "glamazon"-style supermodel who can loom over virtually anyone in the cast through a combination of height and force of personality.

  • In Rusty and Co., the halfing Kris deems the human Dorilys a Jolly green giant! in an inept pass.
  • TwoKinds has the King Adelaide, current ruler of the Eastern Basitin; she stands at least 7' tall (Word of God places her closer to 7'6") making her one of the tallest non-dragon characters by far. She also makes a lot of her appearances as a Bandage Babe, causing at least one subordinate to visibly blush - nevermind the fans.
  • Blossom's roommate, Hilda, from Rhapsodies. All the more apperent after Blossom drags her kicking and screaming out of her shell.

    Web Original 

    Web Video 
  • Blanche Ingram in The Autobiography of Jane Eyre. She's a model, a trained dancer, a successful business woman and a great beauty. She's very tall, compared to other ladies like petite Jane or Grace Poole, and she's as tall as Mr Rochester or her friend Warren Danton who are tall guys.
  • Danny Lawrence in Carmilla the Series. She's an Amazonian red-headed lesbian athlete-scholar who clocks in at an incredibly impressive 6'2", the second-tallest member of the cast after Wilson Kirsch (6'5"). The average height of non-Danny members of the cast (excluding Kirsch) is 5'4".

  • P'Li of the Red Lotus in The Legend of Korra, at a confirmed height of 6'8", is One Head Taller than her love interest Zaheer and the tallest of the group. Facial tattooing and half-shaved head aside, she's clearly meant to be beautiful (if in an edgy, intimidating way).
  • The Perils of Penelope Pitstop: Penelope Pitstop is almost as tall as Sylvester Sneekly/the Hooded Claw.
  • Phineas and Ferb:
    • Candace is 5'8", and only age 15, which would make her a Huge Schoolgirl. Get to her older and much more shapely future self and...
    • Vanessa is the same height as Candace, is bustier and wears leather all the time.
  • On Steven Universe:
    • Rose Quartz was chubby and about eight feet tall. She hooked up with Greg, who is implied to have a thing for tall women, and Pearl also once mentioned that she thinks she was beautiful.
