* ''ComicBook/TheDandy'' had Desperate Dan, a larger-than-life cowboy who was a constant challenge for Aunt Aggie to feed. His usual fare was a cow pie -- a beef pot pie with a filling consisting of a whole longhorn cow, with the horns sticking out of the crust.

* Little Plum's "Chiefy" from ''The Beano'' could put it away too. In one story, Plum was trying to arrange some entertainment for the tribe and considered engaging "Fat Fred", a champion pie-eater who could eat forty pies for lunch. He thought better of the idea when he realized that the tribe could already see Chiefy eat forty pies ''as a snack''.

* ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyLegendsOfMagic'': Rockhoof in Issue #2 takes this to comical levels -- most of his nights out are spent taking on one eating challenge after another, ranging from scarfing down bowls full of oats and mountains of bread to literally eating his way out of a pit full of corn. Deconstructed when destiny calls and his eating habits have caught up to him.

** Another comic has Dilton conduct a study on Jughead, funded by Hiram Lodge, by constantly feeding him to see if there's a way to artificially reproduce Jughead's metabolism. Jughead ends up gaining an enormous amount a weight and, upon reaching critical mass, loses it all in a single explosive belch. Dilton conclude, like in the previous comic, that Jughead's metabolism can't be replicate and Hiram Lodge is stuck with an enormous grocery bill.


Added DiffLines:

** One short story shows that Jughead is a highly popular babysitter around the neighborhood because he's good with kids and charges very little. Parents note, however, that he ends up being fairly expensive because he cleans out the kitchen while they're out so they have to completely restock.

** Double subverted whenever he mentions going on a diet and cut down to 'just two boars' for diner. For Obelix, according to Getafix, that amounts to not eating anything. When it happens for cases other than "dieting", [OOCIsSeriousBusiness it is cause for concern among his friends]].

* Obelix from the ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'' comic books. He eats whole wild boars at times. But don't [[BerserkButton call him "fat"]] out loud if he's nearby.

* Obelix from the ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'' comic books. books, the current trope picture. He eats whole wild boars at times.by the numbers per meal. But don't [[BerserkButton call him "fat"]] out loud if he's nearby. If he's not thinking of [[BloodKnight fighting Roman legionnaries]] or his menhirs, it's food that preoccupies his thoughts. The mere notion of anyone not eating anything to eat for a significant amount of time (such as with [[Recap/AsterixAndTheMagicCarpet a visiting Indian ascetic who last ate before starting his journey to Gaul three weeks ago]]) makes him faint with horror.

* Creator/HarveyComics has ''LittleLotta'', ''Little Lotta'', whose defining traits were her huge size, her near-super strength and her huge appetite. One of her comic book series was named "Foodland". In one story she "trains" for a pie-eating contest by eating and is depicted either holding or eating food in every panel leading up to the contest. When she wins, she eats all of the left-over pies so they won't be wasted, then declares that she never did care much for pie.
