Not to be confused with TheLoad, who's only dead weight from a figurative/narrative standpoint.

* 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), and fill a heavy infantry role for Undead forces. They also can emit poisonous fumes.

For whatever reason, fat zombies tend often be [[ActionBomb kamikaze attackers]] in video games, usually detonating in a shower of gibs and toxic fluids upon termination. [[{{Squick}} Eeeeew.]]

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.
