* 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]].

* [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} 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.

* 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]].

* The writers of MarvelUniverse never seem to be able to decide just what the deal is with 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]].

* ''BrewsterRockit: Space Guy'' - Cliff Clewless. The idea is in his name. He's supposed to be the station's engineer, but knows nothing beyond making an idiot of himself (though not the same level as Brewster, whose stupidity is beyond measure), lazing around, and causing trouble to himself and his crew mates.

* Also in the MarvelUniverse is the Slug; a drug czar who makes the Kingpin look svelte. He is so obese he cannot move without the aide of a motorised chair and can suffocate people in the folds of his flesh. One source says he weighs 1,200 pounds, and needs a custom-built mechanical wheelchair simply to move. ([[WordOfgod Creator Mark Gruenwald]] remarked when the character debuted, "At the time, I thought a 1,200 pound man was a bit far-fetched, but I've since read about such a guy in ''Magazine/{{People}}''.")
