* Roya Orico in ''[[Literature/{{Chalion}} The Curse of Chalion]]'' by Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold is both obese and sickly, frequently with food stains on his clothing. He is a peripheral force for good at best and his moral weakness puts major characters in peril.

* In LloydAlexander's ''Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain'' series of novels, King Smoit of Cantrev Cadiffor is notably overweight. Although he demonstrates enough StoutStrength to let us know that it's not all fat.

* Although it is hard to tell due to the armor he wears, [[spoiler: King Asgore, aka Lord Fluffybuns ]] in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is very large and wide. In the GoldenEnding, he can be seen wearing a pink shirt and blue pants, showing that he does have at least a beer belly.

** Ganondorf also looks like he's gained some weight since ''Ocarina''. Compared to characters like King Daphnes, Lenzo and Mila's father it looks more like Ganondorf's a TopHeavyGuy rather than overweight. The huge robe he's wearing doesn't help matters.

* John III Sobieski of Poland has been [[http://www.s9.com/images/portraits/15437_John-III-Sobieski.jpg fat]], but also a subversion for being a very good horseman, swordsman and stellar military leader for most of his life and reign.

* Creator/MarvelComics' [[ComicBook/TheKingpin Kingpin]] isn't a king but he's the King of New York Crime, and he's bulky (some would say fat... but they'd be wrong). Taken to the extremes in [[WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries the '90s animated series]] of Franchise/SpiderMan, where he is said to have body mass of which only ''2%'' is fat. The remaining 350 pounds of flesh is stated to be solid ''muscle''... and seeing as how he takes on giant robots with his bare hands, and ''wins'', on several occasions, this may be true. While the comics aren't this drastic, he is more muscle and height than fat, working out every day in a private dojo and being a master sumo wrestler.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'', count Augenfedels is tremendously fat, to the point he has such a double chin, it looks like his head isn't really attached to his shoulders. Apparently, it's common among dinosaur-riding nobility, as in contrast to their horse-riding kin, their mounts do their work for them.
