It's never shown but during the Miss Tenku contest DLC in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsV'', [[Anime/CrossAnge Salia]] states that [[HardDrinkingPartyGirl Ma]][[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic o]] apparently drinks so much at night that she gets this. It's not out-of-character for [[GreenEyedMonster Salia]] to exaggerate about something like this when she's talking trash in a contest, but Mao's reaction seems to indicate that it's true.

-->'''Mao:''' You truly are pathetic. Could it be all the stress of the captain role you don't deserve?
-->'''Salia:''' I may be stressed, but that's better then you, drinking away your cares every night until you've got the figure of a beer keg!
-->'''Mao:''' [[LetsGetDangerous Now you've said it, kiddie!]]
-->'''Salia:''' [[JerkassHasAPoint You started it!]]
** Even funnier when you realize that Salia is taking to another character who's seiyu also voices her former captain Zola Axeberg.

** ''WarioWare DIY Showcase'' takes this UpToEleven, as one of the minigames has Wario's belly inflating to deflect rockets. Yes, you read that right.

** 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.
