* 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).

* In ''VideoGame/SidAndAlsIncredibleToons'', Chow-Man's torso turns spherical after eating food that happens to fall into his tray. He quickly deflates as he walks it off on his treadmill.

** Come to think of it, the original game often did it with water or Chuckola Cola.

* In ''SuperScribblenauts'', fattening foods will turn anyone who eats them ''instantly'' into "Fat", "Chubby", and "Obese" versions of themselves, which involves simply stretching the body portion of the sprite to be wider. Using a potion with one of those adjectives will achieve the same effect.

* This happened in ''UmJammerLammy'' after the title character gets free pizza after putting out a fire at a pizza shop. She gorges herself so much that she looks pregnant, but she just as quickly digests it.

* ''Yume Penguin Monogatari'' ("Dream Penguin Story"), a Konami PlatformGame where you play a penguin trying to lose weight to impress his girlfriend. Falling in water will instantly make you as fat as you can get, and all the enemies throw food at you which will quickly fatten you up. One level is set in a giant cake. A [[DigitalPiracyIsEvil piracy check]], when failed, will cause you to instantly bulk up as soon as you're hit.

* ''VideoGame/{{Shiftlings}}'' makes a game mechanic out of this: you play as a pair of bumbling space custodians, one of whom has swollen to enormous size after drinking a bottle of "the galaxy's fizziest soda". The pair must traverse various stages while connected to a hose, through which the player can transfer gas to change which one of them is bloated up and which is normal-sized.
