** The series has two playable "[[PettingZooPeople beast races]]" - the [[LizardFolk Argonians]] and [[CatFolk Khajiit]]. Both species, at least in their [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness appearances after]] ''Daggerfall'', have elongated snouts much like real-life lizard and cats. However, in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', both races can wear full-face helmets which completely reshape their heads. Their snouts are flattened, and the helmets neatly go over any [[AlienHair spikes, horns, feathers, fur]], or foot-long ears. Weirdly, several helmets have two completely different looks depending on whether the current wearer is ''male or female'', but don't change to reflect their species.

Added DiffLines:

* Played with ''Film/MenInBlack''. The invading alien Bug spends most of the movie walking around [[GenuineHumanHide in the skin of a local redneck named Edgar]]. In the climax, [[spoiler:the Bug sheds his Edgar suit to reveal that he had folded himself to fit, and he's really much, much larger than a human]].


* In ''VideoGame/PaperMarioAndTheThousandYearDoor'', [[DamselInDistress Princess Peach]] needs to slip into a [[{{Mook}} X-Naut]] uniform...which is around a head smaller than Peach, but still manages to squeeze into one. Peach herself [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] just how tight a fit the uniform is when getting into and out of it.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' at the end of the episode "Spy Buddies", we have Mr. Krabs flawlessly disguised as Plankton. Note that the latter is one of the smallest members of the show's entire cast. Then immediately afterward we have [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick turning out to actually be other random characters that all vary wildly in size and shape from each other.

* This is standard on ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo.'' The size of a suspect rarely has any correlation to the size of the "ghost" running around.
** Probably comes from movie serials being at least partly the inspiration for ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo''; in the serials, sometimes at the beginning the writers had no idea which character was going to be the true identity of the villain, even after shooting began on the first chapters. The hooded mastermind would be played by an actor who was not part of the actual cast. This would not-infrequently result in the Mysterious Cloaked Bad Guy being quite a bit taller than the cast member eventually revealed as his true identity.

Notably, this is averted in their predecessor ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', where these races cannot wear full helmets. Fan backlash, however, led to this concept being dropped, despite logic.

* Beast races in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' and ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' can wear full face helmets, which completely reshape their heads, somehow squashing down any long faces, horns, spikes or foot long ears them may have. Notably, ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' averted this by making beast races incapable of wearing full helmets.

* In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'', all of the [[ParasiteZombie Ganados]], especially the bosses, have giant parasites living inside of them, which are far, far too big for the host to carry inside of them.

Added DiffLines:

* Some viewers question for [[Series/GameOfThrones Arya Stark]], a young girl, is able to disguise herself as Walder Frey, a much older and much larger man.


* In ''ComicBook/{{WITCH}}'', when the girls transform into their guardian forms, in addition to changing outfits and gaining wings, they get taller and gain boobs. Will is particularly fond of this because in her human form she suffers from a case of ACupAngst.
