* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'':
** Greasus Goldtooth is an exaggerated, but utterly justified, example, being king of the Ogres. To a lesser extent, Chaos god Nurgle may also fit the bill.
** Nurgle is not so much fat as he is bloated by rot.

Creator/GamesWorkshop games:
** In ''TabletopGame/{{Necromunda}}'', the mutant outcasts known as Scavvies barely survive scraping a living in the worst parts of the Underhive and therefore consider a paunch to be a sign of power and success. Redwart, the self-proclaimed Scavvie King has the largest paunch of any Scavvie.
** 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 an exaggerated, but utterly justified, example, being king of the Ogres. To largest of all and has to be carried into battle by a lesser extent, Chaos god Nurgle may also fit living throne of [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent Gnoblars]].

* ''Literature/WolfHall'' takes place before Henry VIII started ''really'' putting on weight, but it's implied that he's getting there. Near the end of the first boo, Hans Holbein asks Cromwell if he should paint the King as he was ten years ago. Cromwell advises him to stick with five. "He'll think you're insulting him."

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' featured Chancellor K'mpec as a Klingon example, fat and morally ambiguous in his willingness to dishonor Worf's family to save the supposedly honorable Empire from civil war.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' featured Chancellor K'mpec as a Klingon example, fat and morally ambiguous in his willingness to dishonor Worf's family to save the supposedly honorable Empire from civil war. In fact, when he tried courting Worf's nurse in their youth she rejected him because he was too fat--and when he comments that it's good to see her again, she just says that he's ''still'' fat.

** Referenced in ''Discworld/InterestingTimes'' - Rincewind isn't sure what to expect of the Agatean Emperor, but "the mental picture had room for a big fat man with lots of rings". The actual Emperor is a very old man on his deathbed.
