Playing With: Statuesque Stunner
Basic Trope: An attractive woman who is very, very tall.
  • Straight: Alice is around 6'3" tall.
  • Exaggerated: Alice is around 3 stories tall.
  • Downplayed: Alice is around 5'9" tall
  • Justified:
    • Alice has legs so long that it makes her taller.
    • Her ancestors were tall people, so Alice is of this height.
  • Inverted: Alice is considered attractive because she is short.
  • Subverted: Alice was just standing next to very short people. Alice is of normal height...
  • Double Subverted: ...only to be revealed to have the ability to become taller!
  • Parodied: She is so tall that she has a lot of trouble getting some room to move around.
  • Zig Zagged: Its hard to tell how tall Alice really is, due to camera angles and the people around her.
  • Averted: Alice isn't tall at all.
  • Enforced: She is designed for appealing viewers that like taller women.
  • Lampshaded: "You're... so... TALL!"
  • Invoked: Professor Drachenstein gives Alice a growth serum, so she will fit his ideal image of beauty.
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: Alice takes a shrinking serum so she won't stand out so much.
  • Discussed: "Dude, who could have thought that amazon would have been that tall!"
  • Conversed: "I'm still wondering... how come there are pictures of women taller than men?"
  • Deconstructed:
    • Due to her height, she suffers an illness caused by her sudden growth, and she needs to be operated so she can stop growing to cure the illness.
    • Alice can't find attractive feminine clothing of her size, making her Hollywood Homely.
  • Reconstructed:
  • Played For Laughs:
    • Alice is so tall that she clumsily ends up accidentally banging her head on the door frames repeatedly or even getting stuck on small objects.
    • Alice's upper body is permanently out of frame. When she appears in scene, every man looks up and drools.
  • Played For Drama: Alice is shunned for being tall, and is called a freak. She just wants to have some friends.
