-->'''Howard Hughes''': Sure. Who doesn't like tits?

* So thinks the sexist director of the [[ShowWithinAShow Film Within A Film]] at the heart of ''Film/SymbiopsychotaxiplasmTakeOne''. As his crew is filming in the park he says "Where's that woman with the tits?" On cue, the camera whirls and captures a busty blonde riding through the park on a horse. "Get her, get her, [[{{Gainaxing}} they're bouncing]]", he says.

* ''Manga/SevenSeeds'': Semimaru overall says he really likes women like Botan, particularly mentioning that he likes her large breasts, too. [[spoiler: Though he ends up falling for Natsu, whom he has previously bullied and made fun of, though more because of her bony butt than her breasts, which are not particularly large or small.]] Chimaki calls Ran "well-proportioned", though it's unclear if he's referring to her breast size specifically or her overall form, which appeals to him in the artistic sense.

* Sailor Jupiter (a.k.a Makoto/[[DubNameChange Lita]]) from ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' has breasts that range from visibly larger to twice the size or more ([[{{Fanservice}} depending on the scene)]] of her cohorts. At one point in the [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]], she tries to use her breast size ([[MemeticMutation memetically]] [[DubText dubbed]] as "talent") as a qualification for the lead role in a play. Unfortunately she can't get a boyfriend to save her life, [[HugeSchoolgirl because she's about 6 feet tall]] and [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon is physically strong and active to be off-putting to most guys]].

* The eponymous character from ''Film/KickAss'' is obsessed with large breasts, going so far as to watch photos of female african tribals. It's telling that, when a girl asks him to spend the night, the first thing he does (before even kissing her) is grab her boobs. She doesn't mind.

* The trope is given a bit of a disturbing cast in ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': a near-throwaway line from Cinna near the end of the first book mentions that the Games officials almost had Katniss's breasts surgically enhanced without her knowledge or consent while she was tranquilized and recovering from the Games, to make up for the weight she lost during the whole experience. Fortunately, Haymitch threw enough of a fit that they backed off and agreed to let Cinna simply pad her clothes instead. What really makes it disturbing is in the third book of the series when you realize that [[spoiler:the breast enhancement was probably meant to attract/please customers. The most attractive winners ended up prostituted by President Snow.]]

To be fair, she only did this during the then common Wrestling/{{W|orldWrestlingEntertainment}}WF "Bikini Contests".

* For the first few years of the ''Franchise/TombRaider'' franchise, Lara Croft got more busty with each new installment. During her creation, the Lead graphic artist Toby Gard accidentally increased the breasts' dimensions of Lara by 150 percent. After seeing the increase, the rest of the creative team argued to keep the change.
** This trope does not apply to the more recent ''Tomb Raider'' games, in which Lara has more realistic proportions.

** That said, she did confess she didn't want to go completely flat.
