Interestingly, some comedians ([[CategoryTraitor usually fat ones]]) complain about PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad when it comes to fat jokes... although the sheer quantity of examples we have amassed tend to disagree on this front. Obesity is so universally seen as a negative character trait that it's relatively common for characters to be given some AdaptationalAttractiveness to offset this fact.

Compare BigEater and VillainousGlutton (often with JabbaTableManners). Fat Bastard and BigEater are usually (but not always) mutually exclusive. While Fat Bastard is often fairly ugly, the BigEater usually has a somewhat pleasant appearance. This is because the former is played for villainy and the latter for laughs. DeadWeight is this type... [[AC:[[RecycledINSPACE but undead!]]]] When a Fat Bastard does their own fighting, they can a simultaneously humorous and terrifying foe for a hero to face off against--these portrayals range often invoke the characters obesity as a DisabilitySuperPower or PowerUpgradingDeformation. {{Kevlard}} is commonly invoked trope, particularly for a StationaryBoss or MightyGlacier villain. StoutStrength is also a stock trait for these villains, and rarely they will be {{Acrofatic}}. When facing a villain with more than one of these traits, [[ThatOneBoss crying is an acceptable tactic]].

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

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. Nowadays, obesity is more associated with the poor, as processed food is far cheaper than healthier alternatives. Hence how we can go from the SantaClaus character type of rich and jolly to the modern character type of greedy, lazy, and evil.

* ''ComicStrip/BrewsterRockit: Space Guy'' - Cliff Clewless. The idea is in his name. He's supposed to be the station's engineer, but knows nothing beyond making an idiot of himself (though not the same level as Brewster, whose stupidity is beyond measure), lazing around, and causing trouble to himself and his crewmates.

* 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
