* Despite, as noted in both the introduction and in Real Life section below, being one of the [[TropeCodifier Trope Codifiers]], Series/TheTudors managed to avert this in its depiction of Henry VIII. True to history, he starts off appropriately buff as a young man, but he never undergoes the famous weight gain the historical Henry did. Of course, it would have been unthinkable for Creator/JonathanRhysMeyers to have been forced to actually put the dangerous amount of weight on, and the wardrobe department does a valiant job of dressing him in bigger, heavier, less form-fitted outfits, but it's still a bit jarring, as the traditional image of Henry is one so well-ingrained.

* Troll king Thibault from ''Literature/MaledictionTrilogy'' is morbidly obese. However, this does not seem to influence him very much, as his magical powers are great and he can use a heavy iron spear proficiently. At one point his son [[TheProtagonist Tristan]] calls him upon it, accusing him of feasting while his subjects are starving. But while he is a ChessMaster and does many nasty things to his subjects, he is not necessarily evil.
