** Dialed UpToEleven with the UltimateUniverse version of the Blob, to the point where he once paused during an attack on the [[strike:Avengers]] Ultimates' mansion to raid the fridge. Less funny was the time he was discovered [[ImAHumanitarian eating]] the Wasp's corpse.

** The ''ComicBook/AgeOfApocalypse'' version was just as bad, if not worse - there was no indication that Ultimate Blob necessarily killed the Wasp, simply being an OpportunisticBastard in the most horrifying way possible. AoA Blob, by contrast, killed and ate AoA Nightcrawler's wife (possibly alive), then later taunted him about it. Nightcrawler, not having his canon counterpart's [[ThouShaltNotKill scruples]], responded by teleporting a shark into his stomach and letting it eat him alive. Yeah, the Age of Apocalypse is a horrifying place all round.

* The writers of MarvelUniverse never seem to be able to decide just what the deal is with ComicBook/TheKingpin. He's an incredibly huge person, but depending on the writer this is because his muscles are so huge they make him look fat or that he's a greedy slob with no sense of control. Some split the difference and write that he's got incredibly powerful arm and leg muscles but is fat everywhere else because of overeating--[[FridgeLogic ignoring the more medically likely explanation that, like sumo wrestlers, he is well-muscled everywhere, but eats enough to maintain a significant layer of padding on top of it]].
** Whatever the explanation, it doesn't stop {{Spider-Man}} from going to town on him for it, at one point responding to being told that Kingpin was planning a huge operation using most of his available mercenaries by commenting, "Oh, he must be getting take-out."
*** Another example from Spider-Man's corner of the MU would be Nick Katzenberg, a Daily Bugle photographer and professional rival to Peter Parker. While not evil, Katzenberg was sleazy, immoral, and generally unpleasant.

* [[ComicBook/XMen The Blob]], member of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. His weight and physical appearance are played up for horror and squick whenever he shows interest in a woman. In a bit of a subversion, his weight comes not from overeating but his mutation. When he was depowered, he ended up as his true weight - which was incredibly thin. After plastic surgery to remove his excess skin, he ended up being a pastiche of Jared from the Subway commercials. In the animated series and depending on the writer, he's still a greedy, slovenly, unhygienic pig, though. The animated series also tend to imply he is fat because of his eating habits.

* A female example is ComicBook/AmandaWaller, who will manipulate and control people, commits crimes, put bombs into super villains, and even scares Batman. All done [[WellIntentionedExtremist for the greater good]] [[MyCountryRightOrWrong for her country]].

* Both Roark brothers in the comic version of ''SinCity'' are overweight and look unhygenic. Herr Wallenquist also has this look. They are all extremely evil crimebosses.

* Subverted with Sam from ''{{Spawn}}''. While he caters to every single characteristic of the trope, he's as good a guy as they come who always strives to right wrongs. The bastard tendencies tend to be directed towards bad guys. [[MonsterClown Clown (aka Violator)]], Tony Twist and Billy Kincaid, on the other hand, [[OurDemonsAreDifferent play this trope]] [[WouldHurtAChild straight]].

* One Hulk story had a one-shot villain by the name of [[http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix/stjohnshubert.htm St John Hubert]] who captured the Hulk to replicate his powers. He was morbidly obese and could only walk with the assistance of crutches and although he succeeded in inducing a gamma mutation, it just made him an even fatter blob.

* Allfather D'Aronique from ''{{Preacher}}'' is fat to the point that his personal aircraft inevitably sustains damage landing. On the top of that, he's also bulimic. As such, D'Aronique has no qualms about [[JabbaTableManners messily gorging himself with food and then vomiting all over himself in front of his subordinates]].
