* The Boomer from ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' (pictured). His special attack is to [[{{Squick}} vomit]] a strange bile on surviving humans, which summons a sizable swarm of the speedy regular Infected to attack the afflicted humans. The vomit also [[InterfaceScrew messes up the Survivor's vision]] temporarily. When destroyed, the Boomer explodes in a shower of bile with an effect essentially the same as its vomit for anyone too close to it. Ironically, it has the least health ([[OneHitKill one shot offs them]]) of any of the special Infected as the result of being an undead goo balloon. Notably, the Boomer appears to be stretched out and inflated, implying it wasn't so obese before it got infected. Oh, and its "outie" bellybutton is really just [[{{Squick}} its guts bursting out.]]

* Bloated Butchers, the stronger of the two zombie enemies in ''Videogame/{{Blood}}''. They take a ton of damage and can attack at a range with two different attacks to drain two different armor types.

* The Flash game series ''VideoGame/TheLastStand'' has lots of fat zombies, of the {{Kevlard}} variety. Since the only thing that separates them from regular zeds is their health (some can sprint just as easily as the thin ones), they fill in the role of EliteMooks, along with [[HeavilyArmoredMook the ones in riot gear]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DeadFrontier'' has variants of fat zombies, all of which tend to have more health than non-fat counterparts.
** One of the early game zombie types are male and female versions of fat zombies, they have more health than the regular ones but are slower.
** The Bloat and its smaller variant are these, due to a buildup of methane gas inside them, which causes them to [[ActionBomb explode when killed]].
** The Brute is an obese zombie who attacks via vomiting and has a great amount of health thanks to a [[{{Kevlard}} protective layer of fat]].

* While we haven't yet encountered any reanimated corpses, inanimate corpses-- particularly in hot, wet climates-- often swell up with gas. A tropical zombie could very easily turn into one of these (and even [[ActionBomb explode]].)
** The phenomenon of corpse bloat is discussed in [[NauseaFuel excruciating]] detail in ''Stiff'', and the book ''Vampires, Burial and Death: Folklore and Reality'' mentions a mass grave of chicken carcasses where the gases actually forced the bodies back out of the ground! [[http://books.google.com/books?id=o55_G3ls-Q0C&pg=RA1-PA129#v=onepage&q&f=false Read it here.]]
** Dead whales are classed as dangerous cargo because they have a tendency to violently explode.
* William the Conqueror was very fat, and died of a large cyst developed from a bruised intestine. When they finally boxed him, he burst. The stink was so bad it cleared out the church his funeral was in.
* King Henry VIII weighed 28 stone at death and thus required an oversized coffin. The corpse exploded in Syon Abbey while en route to Windsor, splattering blood and guts everywhere, and dogs were found licking up the remains.

* The Abominations from the ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' [[WarcraftExpandedUniverse franchise]] fit this description, although they are more similar in origin to the monster from ''Franchise/{{Frankenstein}}'' (pieced together from multiple corpses). They are massive (definitely bigger than a human), hideous (putrid and decaying with internal organs visible), and misshapen (extra limbs abound), they fill a heavy infantry role for Undead forces. They also can emit poisonous fumes.
