*** This is shown beautifully in the fourth iteration SuperSmashBros, which invoked an AnthropomorphicShift on Bowser to make him align more with his official depiction. This resulted in a fighter who was once [[MightyGlacier a lumbering kaiju-esq beast]] to suddenly become [[LightningBruiser a deceptively agile and acrobatic brawler]], doing cartwheels in the air and finishing off his opponents [[WrestlerInAllOfUs with flying dropkicks and high flying triple-flip moonsaults]]

* The Genie in the stage version of {{Aladdin}} is portrayed as acrofatic. He's generally portrayed by a rotund black man who seems nearly as flexible as the animated Genie.

* ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'s'' Pandaren are a whole race fitting this trope; females are a little lighter than males, but still plump. They are large and stocky creatures, often even depicted with large bellies which by human standards would qualify as heavily overweight, yet:
-->''Pandaren have a long tradition of mystic warfare and are exceedingly strong and agile. The traditional pandaren fighting style focuses upon mobility, speed and precision, as well as stunning acrobatic tricks.''
** They're now playable in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft : Mists Of Pandaria''.
** ''World Of Warcraft'' features Bear Druids. Their main role is to use [[KevLard their bulk to soak up damage]]. They also need to have a very high Agility rating, as this allows them to dodge more attacks.

* In ''Literature/{{Protector}}'', by Creator/LarryNiven, one of his Literature/KnownSpace novels, a minor character (who lives in space), is said to be so fat he couldn't support himself on Earth. Not much is made of it.

** Also, Big Mom, though it's to be expected since she's one of the [[WorldsStrongestMan four strongest pirates in the world]]. She's perfectly capable of chasing down opponents, climbing tall buildings, and (in the anime) even performing (evil) musical numbers.

* TheBigShow used to use moonsaults as part of his move-set when he was known as The Giant in WCW. Unsurprisingly, nobody wanted to take one from him. Not even the 6'11'' '''Kevin Nash'''. He even speaks about this on an episode of ''Tough Enough'' - saying that even a big guy like him needs to be athletic.
