* J. Roaringham Fatback, a recurring villain in ''ComicStrip/LilAbner''. The self-styled "Pork King", Fatback was a [[VillainousGlutton greedy, gluttonous]], unscrupulous [[CorruptCorporateExectutive business tycoon.]] His grudge against Dogpatch originated when the town cast a shadow over the table where he was having breakfast, causing his desire to demolish the town, rather than simply move his table. The bloated, porcine, [[EvilMakesYouUgly hideously ugly]] Fatback was, quite literally, a corporate swine

This trope is named after the character from the ''AustinPowers'' movies. He epitomizes this trope to such a ridiculous extreme that it qualifies as parody.

'''Note do not overuse for every character who shows mildly antagonistic qualities. For example if the villain has a cutely, overweight sidekick who is a MinionWithAnFInEvil, then he's probably a FatIdiot instead. Alternatively if the BigBad is HollywoodPudgy, but this is never commented on within the series, then they are not an example.'''

Also called ''fatbastarditis''. Once a television character reaches a certain level of tubbiness, the show they are in will lose sympathy for them. It is generally assumed that overweight people are either pathetic, obnoxious losers or {{greed}}y [[TheHedonist hedonistic]] {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s. They also tend to be portrayed as ludicrously obsessive eaters. Furthermore, most are portrayed as [[FatSlob lazy, having poor hygiene, bad grooming, and no fashion sense]]. Glandular conditions, genetic tendencies, a natural endomorph body type, and low metabolism are treated as lame excuses alongside the "I'm just big-boned" mold.

This trend first shows up with the introduction of synthetic, high-fat foods in the early twentieth century, which enabled people from most social classes to gain weight quickly. Prior to that point, being fat was considered high fashion -- examples include AdiposeRex and how having a fat wife proved that the RailroadBaron had enough money to feed her a lot. Hence how we can go from the SantaClaus character type of rich and jolly to the modern character type of greedy, lazy, and evil.

Nowadays, obesity is more associated with the poor, as processed food is far cheaper than healthier alternatives.
