* Creator/MaryGentle's recurring character Baltazar Casaubon seems to always have a snack at hand. And yes, he's fat... but, to paraphrase Gentle herself, it's more accurate to say that he's [[StoutStrength a huge guy who happens to be fat]].

Added DiffLines:

* As mentioned with Clay above, Ochre from ''Wings Of Fire'' is also a [=MudWing=] dragon and a big eater, wanting to always have a bite to eat. But unlike Clay, who is kind and loyal to his friends, Ochre is [[FatBastard greedy and unfriendly]]. Even sweet and kind Sunny can't stand him.

Added DiffLines:

* ''BillyBunter'' is a typical example. When on a camping trip with six other boys, he looks at the supplies they've purchased for tea (dinner) and says, with no consciousness of being ironic, "Let's see, there's seven sausages here. What are you fellows having?"

Added DiffLines:

* Clay from ''Literature/WingsOfFire'' is always hungry and thinking of food. He'll often have dreams of eating lots of prey like hippos, sheep, bears, and mangoes. It's no surprise that he is in charge of the Prey Center (a room where they practice hunting animals) at the Jade Mountain Academy.

* Caramon Majere during the ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}} Legends'' series, although he eventually gets back into shape.

to:

* The original ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}}'' trilogy has Caramon Majere during Majere, who eats a lot, but works it all off due to being the ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}} Legends'' series, although party's fighter, giving him an appearance implied to be a lot like ''Literature/ConanTheBarbarian'' -- tall, rugged, and rippling with muscles. And then comes the "Test of the Twins" sequel trilogy, which opens with Caramon having been cruelly snubbed by his twin brother. Depression made him eat even more and exercise less, causing him to bloat up into a fat, stinking, drunken blob. After the TimeTravel shenanigans, he eventually gets ends up being made a slave-gladiator, which forces him to work off the flab and snaps him out of his depression, so he goes back into shape.to a healthier weight in the rest of the series.

It actually seem that a Wizard's competency and power is directly proportional to how much he eats and how big he is. As seem with the Dean on ''Reaper Man'' (who is easily the fattest wizard of the book, but has the power to cast three ludicrously powerful spells at the same time with a delay, to [[ItMakesSenseInContext explode/implode a parasitic supermarket]]) and Rincewind in general.

The eating habits are, in fact, deliberately encouraged by the University, as the whole point of the Unseen University is to keep wizards happy and content so that they don't revert to the bad old days of laying waste to the fabric of reality out of sheer belligerent contempt for everyone around them. Offering endless arrays of feasts to stuff their faces at is, traditionally, one of the easiest ways to do so.



** Keldas of Nac Mac Feegle clans in general, such as Fiona, as seen in the Tiffany Aching books. When she's sharing a meal with Tiffany, she takes only ''slightly'' less than what Tiffany has -- and while Tiffany is a 15-year-old human girl, Fiona is ''6 inches tall.'' Justified as she is pregnant all of the time.
** Restauranteur All Jolson combines Ankh-Morpork's finest examples of Big Eater and SupremeChef in one person, which the city considers a match made in mashed potato heaven.

** Once he gets ascended to heaven, he even earns himself a heavenly position to being "Cleaner of the Heavenly Altar", which means eating all of the food that is offered to Buddha for the rest of time. Bajie just thinks this is the best job ever, despite the lesser standing.
