The big cheese

Luis has a certain line in Resident Evil 4 that's interesting for a non-native English speaker.

Just after Luis has been saved by Leon, Bitores the village chief appears to ruin their day.

Luis recognizes him as being the "big cheese", which was a little surprising for me as he didn't look particularly fat to me. I only later found out that "big cheese" is another word for a boss.

I wonder if "small cheese" works the other way round?
It's always fun to learn new expressions!
