* Any time [[{{Franchise/Super Mario Bros}} Petey Piranha]] appears in a game where the player [[{{ElementalPowers}} uses]] [[{{WeaksauceWeakness}} water]] [[{{VideoGame/SuperPrincessPeach}} as a]] [[{{VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine}} weapon]] you can guarantee you'll have to utilize his ballooniness against him to expose his [[{{AttackItsWeakPoint}} belly button]].

** A similar fatality in ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' has Rain conjure a large ball of water over his victim's head and force it down their throats, causing their body to bloat up until it bursts. (Oddly, there is very little gore in the actual explosion)

* BigEater Li Xiangfei gained a huge balloon belly in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4BEg4WjAGA her team's ending]] for ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters 2001''. Rather surprising since it was averted in the similar ending for ''The King of Fighters '99''. It seems the artist in charge for 2001, Nona (known for drawing {{Gonk}} versions of every character), has no problem subverting the BeautyIsNeverTarnished trope.

* In ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story]]'', one of the Mario brothers' attacks, Snack Basket, involves stuffing Luigi with treats until he balloons up, followed by Mario tossing him at the ground to create a shock wave like so.

* In the original ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct'', Riptor has a [[{{Fatality}} "No Mercy"]] finisher that combines this trope with ToServeMan: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2vlL5ehjQc After the correct button code is input]], she screeches and makes a diving kick at her victim, then there is a FadeToBlack GoryDiscretionShot. The scene then returns to display Riptor laying on her back, cradling an enormously distended belly. She burps loudly, farts once, and then immediately returns to her normal figure to make a triumphant roar.

* This happens to Sims in ''TheSims 2'', in both directions: Immediately after getting up from a meal or getting off the treadmill, they may balloon to tubbyness or shrink to svelteness with a cheery sound effect. Contrast with ''The Sims 3'', where fat and muscle are tracked separately, and gained or lost at a gradual rate.
* In ''StreetFighter'', Dhalsim gets this just before [[BreathWeapon breathing fire]].

* Hilde from ''ShadowHearts: From The New World'' has two forms. Curvy Hilde is the trope. Slim Hilde is the opposite. Oddly enough, she gains ''and'' loses weight via feeding (she drinks calories, not blood--some enemies have "negative" calories).
