** In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' the size of an Ogre’s belly is a sign of wealth and power. Being the king of all Ogres, Greasus Goldtooth is the largest of all and has to be carried into battle by a living throne of [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent Gnoblars]].
** The eternally hungry Ogors of ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'' are led by massive and powerful Tyrants. These Tyrants use their strength to appropriate the largest share of food and other provisions, leading them to grow fat on the spoils of war.

* Whenever Creator/ECComics required a wicked king for their "Grim Fairy Tales" or other medieval-themed stories, he would almost invariably be an example of this. The first "Grim Fairy Tale" in ''Vault of Horror'' #27 doubled up on this trope by depicting a King AND Queen who were equally rotund.

In actuality, the trope is universal in neither fiction nor reality. In RealLife, monarchs vary as widely in body shape as everyone else, so it stands to reason that ''some'' would fall under this trope.

** Oren, the River Zora Queen, is a rare female example in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkBetweenWorlds''. Her huge bulk is actually a side effect of her Smooth Stone being stolen, which kept her power in check. Without it, she gorges on fish all day and grows bigger over time. Once the stone is returned, she slims down and is more calm.
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' has two big kings. King Rhoam is the King of Hyrule and has a design similar to Daphnes Nohansen. There's also King Dorephan, who is the ruler of the Zoras. He is pretty darn fat in the gut, but is also very strong since he had scrapped a [[EliteMook Guardian]] by picking it up and tossing it off a cliff. His huge body also makes sense since he looks like a whale shark.

* 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.
