* The ''TableTopGame/YuGiOh'' card Plaguespreader Zombie is a walking blob of decaying flesh, apparently stitched together from several different creatures. It's also a very useful Tuner monster.
** It's nothing compared to Il-Blud though: Not only is it large and fat, it has a gigantic, horribly disfigured face where it's belly should be.
** Giant Axe Mummy also comes to mind.
** As do Pain Painter, Clown Zombie, and a great many others. This game has an inordinate number of obese undead.
*** There's even a FatAndSkinny pair, Three-Legged Zombies.
* 3rd Edition ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' has a monster in their Monster Manual 2 that's called a "Famine Spirit." It's the reanimated body and spirit of an individual who died of starvation, and returns to eat in undeath what they couldn't eat in life. About the ''only'' thing this creature doesn't eat are other undead. It even comes complete with a vorpal ''bite'' (that is, a bite that can ''sever your head from your body''.)

* In the ''TabletopGame/DarkSun'' setting, there were undead monsters called faels, who only existed to eat, and demanded food from anyone who encountered them, violently lashing out at anyone who denied them food or interrupted their feasting. On Athas, where even water was a precious commodity and conservation of food could mean the difference between life or death, these things were menaces.
* In the ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' campaign, there are sea zombies, disgustingly bloated undead created from the corpses of drowned sailors. While slow and clumsy on land, they were hard to hurt.

** In ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'', Aumvor the Undying is an ancient [[OurLichesAreDifferent lich]] archmage; though stocky in life, in undeath he somehow bloated into a hugely obese, slimy form rather than decay into a skeleton.

Added DiffLines:

** The "Fat Man" Molded from ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil7Biohazard'' is incredibly durable and spits acidic bile, making it the only enemy to attack you at a range. What's worse is that attacking them makes them reflexively vomit, so melee weapons of any kind are pretty much a no-go to all but the most highly-skilled player. What's ''worst'' is that the hardest difficulty gives them a huge buff to their defense and speed, turning them into full-on {{Lightning Bruiser}}s, and increasing the number of them you have to fight.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Zombidle}}'', two of [[VillainProtagonist Bob the]] {{Necromancer}}'s minions are this. The Big Plague is noticeably fatter than the other zombies, while the Giant Zombie is also largely built but appears to be more muscle than fat.

* 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.]]

* 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]].

* ''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]].
