* ''VideoGame/AgeOfEmpiresII'': The King unit, mostly seen in Regicide games, but also present in some capaign scenarios, is an AdiposeRex that can still run faster than some cavalry units. This is because kings can't fight and running away is their only defense (since regicide games are only won when you kill your opponent's king).

** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] with Fat Gotenks. Everyone thought that he was going to be comparable to the played-straight Majin Buu, but he couldn't even run a few steps.

* Butch R. Mann of ''ChoppingBlock'' varies between this and just plain fat, depending on the joke. In general, he gains a massive boost of strength and speed when his life is in danger.

** SelfDemonstrating/{{Bowser}} dips in and out of this trope, depending on the game. Bowser is typically the MightyGlacier, living up to the "slow but powerful" character type, but in some games, Bowser can run and jump as well as Mario can. Even when he's portrayed as slow and a bad jumper, Bowser's still usually shown as quite agile, pulling off the flips and spins Mario is so known for with just as much ease. If ''VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolutionMarioMix'' is anything to go by, Bowser is also an incredible dancer and can pull off breakdancing with ease, despite his bulk.

* Another fat cat is Rhett Butler[=/=]Hercules from ''Anime/SailorMoon'', who saves Luna twice from a large gang of stray cats in one episode. The 3rd time was when [[spoiler:Zoisite turns him into the monster-cat Youma called Bakene, and, despite destructive intention like the other Youma, saves Luna from falling.]]
