Usually this will be averted in the case of "heroic" kings; obesity is most often when [[VillainousGlutton the king is corrupt]], a peripheral force for good, or a relaxed neutral arbiter.

Usually this will be averted in the case of "heroic" more actively heroic kings; obesity is most often when [[VillainousGlutton the king is corrupt]], corrupt (overlapping with FatBastard and VillainousGlutton), a peripheral force for good, good (in which case he's probably BigFun but not especially {{badass}}), or a relaxed neutral arbiter.

* Literature/TheBible has [[FatBastard King Eglon]] (Judges 3:12-30), making this trope OlderThanFeudalism: He's oppressing Israel, so God sends [[TheSouthpaw Ehud]] the judge to kill him. The text says, "now Eglon was a very fat man." This becomes {{squick}}y hilarity when Ehud stabs Eglon, without pulling the sword back out, and [[BloodyHilarious the sword disappears under all of the fat]].

* Not a king, but Baron Arald of ''Literature/RangersApprentice'' enjoys sweets a little too much-but, like several examples above, still has plenty of muscle and is an expert warrior, as well as being a ReasonableAuthorityFigure and PungeonMaster.

* In the ''Literature/{{Nightside}}'' novels, in one alternate universe where Merlin chose to become the Antichrist and corrupted Arthur's bloodline to rule for him, [[spoiler: the last of that line dies at the hands of Shooter Suzie, prompting Merlin to take the throne as this (albeit briefly)]].

* Although it is hard to tell due to the armor he wears, [[spoiler: King Asgore Dreemurr]] in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' is very large and wide. [[spoiler:He subverts the usual connotations that come with this trope, however, as he is not only shown to be TheGoodKing, but is in fact [[StoutStrength extremely strong]], one of the strongest monsters in the Underground.]] In the GoldenEnding, he can be seen wearing a pink shirt and blue pants, showing that he does have at least a beer belly.

* Emperor Krelchzeeber from ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob,'' the long-dead Nemesite ruler who [[spoiler: killed Fructose Riboflavin's father.]] It's worth noting that, as insect people, most Nemesites are rail-thin.

* Harren Hoare of ''Fanfic/ForumOfThrones'' is a [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]] example. After his days of raiding were gone the moment he inherited the crown, he started to put on weight, even more in his advanced age. Currently, he is described as chunky and it is likely only a matter of time until he would become outright fat.
