* A rather horrifying version includes the entire Taxxon species from ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', who have a [[HorrorHunger maddening hunger]] that makes them eat anything they can -- including any injured member of their species or, on at least one occasion, ''oneself''. This hunger is so powerful that when Taxxons are caught up in it (which is a ''lot'') even the Yeerk inside can no longer control it. To its terror. There's a reason that only lower-ranking Yeerks are assigned to Taxxons.
** This hunger is why the Taxxons are a [[HenchmanRace species of voluntary Controllers]]- the Yeerks promised them relief from their HorrorHunger in exchanged for their service.
** Ax, in human morph.

service. Didn't end up working, but that the Taxxons gave up their own free will to escape their hunger says something about how overpowering it is.
** Ax, in human morph. His natural species has no taste buds, so while in human form, the variety of different flavors of food tends to overwhelm him.

* In ''Literature/VoidCity'', the vampire Greta has a very slim figure. However, in life, she was a compulsive eater, and her transformation into a vampire did not change this. When not hunting humans, she is constantly "snacking" on any small animal which comes within her reach.

* Templeton the rat in ''Literature/CharlottesWeb'' might be a VillainousGlutton if he actually did anything truly malicious (he's stated to have "no morals") but bribing him with food is pretty much the only way to get him to help with anything. He's persuaded to go to the county fair after being told of all the discarded food that would be on the ground after hours, and eats so much then that he comes back the next morning bloated to almost twice his size. Later in the book, after Orson promises to let him eat first from his slops after helping save Charlotte's egg sac, he grows to nearly the size of a woodchuck from eating so much.

* [[ActionSurvivor Fitz Kreiner]] from the ''Series/DoctorWho'' Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures. He also has ExtremeOmnivore tendencies, and questionable table manners. And, as per usual for this trope, he's incredibly skinny, although when he's not busy running for his life and can have three square meals a day, he doesn't take long to get a bit out of shape. FridgeBrilliance: it's probably because by the time he's 33, he's spent about 2/3 of his life either [[WorldWarII under rationing]] or traveling with the Doctor. Being on a see-food diet (you know, [[IncrediblyLamePun if he sees food, he eats it]]) is ordinarily a useful survival mechanism which he probably picked up when he was still a small child.

* 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]].
