The answer is going to vary depending upon what story and what set of legends or fairy tales you wish to base the answer on. In the majority of stories, elves are depicted as being very small. Small Elves * The house elves in Harry Potter series are much shorter than people. * The elves in The Shoemaker and the Elves are on the small side. * The movie Elf had small elves * The Santa Clause movies had small, as well as young, elves. Tall Elves * J. R. R. Tolkien's Elves (The Lord of the Rings, etc) are physically the same as Men (although the different human peoples vary in size, so some are shorter). * The books in the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini, also had tall thin elves
