* A rather horrifying version includes the entire Taxxon species from ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', who have a 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.

* 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]].

* 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.
