The height of a fictional character is something that casual readers and viewers rarely think about. But if you think about it, height is really integral to understanding the story. After all, how tall a person is dramatically changes how that person views the world (no pun intended) and so a fan’s idea of a character’s height will invariably affect how they view said character’s perspective. The story of a 5’3” protagonist (like Wolverine) is just not the same as the story of someone who could play professional basketball (like Hodor).

The age of data collection and fandom sites has ensured that there is a deluge of information available on the vital statistics of various fictional universes. Occasionally, there are some nuggets of data that can shift how you think about a story. When you see the heights of these fictional charactes, you’ll never look at that character the same ever again. Whether it’s a rough and tough mutant who’s way too short, or a terrifyingly tall dinosaur-tyrant, these minute details change everything.
