Any of them undead? No? Okay.
[[AC:TruthInTelevision]] * 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.

* In the ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' campaign, there were sea zombies, disgustingly bloated undead created from the corpses of drowned sailors. While slow and clumsy on land, they were hard to hurt. * The Weathermay-Foxgrove twins recount their hunt for an obese BigEater animated corpse in ''[[{{Ravenloft}} Van Richten's Guide to the Walking Dead]]''.

* 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.

[[AC:{{Pinball}}]] * Creator/SternPinball's ''Pinball/TheWalkingDead'' has the Well Walker, who is hideously fat, with folds of flabby skin and a body covered with open sores. On the Limited Edition table, hitting him will cause him to topple over at the midsection, revealing his guts.
