* [[ComicBook/SuicideSquad Amanda Waller]] is another example of a large woman who is NOT insecure about her weight, and is plenty {{Badass}}. At least, she was, until the ComicBook/{{New 52}} reboot and the ''Film/GreenLantern'' movie got a hold of her and retconned her into having a slimmer appearance.

->'''Dromio of Syracuse:''' No longer from head to foot than from hip to hip: she is spherical, like a globe; I could find out [[CountryMatters countries]] in her.

* In ''WebVideo/UltraFastPony'', protagonist Twilight Sparkle is overweight and in denial about it. ("Hey, I am not fat! [[NoExceptYes I'm just bigger than the above-average pony.]]") [[InformedAttribute She doesn't look heftier than anyone else]] because this is an AbridgedSeries, and Twilight was normal-sized in the original series--but in TheMovie, running the length of her bedroom leaves her completely out of breath. And the other characters mock her weight, more so in the later seasons.

Added DiffLines:

* Heavier people don't often show up in ''ComicBook/TheWalkingDead'', presumably since they [[Film/{{Zombieland}} didn't follow the number one rule of cardio]]. Two examples of this trope do show up, however. There's Lacey Greene, Hershel's oldest daughter, who is the heaviest member of the Greene family. Later, Olivia shows up in Alexandria. Lacey ends up getting eaten (and we're [[SarcasmMode treated]] to a shot of the walkers all converging on her large belly and tearing it open), and Olivia is humiliated by [[BigBad Negan]] because he mocks the idea of a fat woman being in charge of Alexandria's food supplies. Olivia later mentions that she actually has a rather active sex life with the men of Alexandria, possibly because [[ChubbyChaser she's the only heavyset woman in town]].

* Carmen of TheSisterhoodOfTheTravelingPants is a subversion. Her size and shape are an issue mostly because her Latina curves make her stand out from her father and his new family as seen when she gets so upset when her bridesmaid's dress doesn't fit because it was clearly designed for someone skinny. There's also the fact that she's the narrator and the one who holds the group together.

* Lois Waller of the [[SweetValleyHigh Sweet Valley Twins series]] is a shy, overweight student who was once friends with popular student Janet Howell but now the only person who's nice to her is the kind-hearted Elizabeth.

* Harper from ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' is the best friend of the show's main character Alex Russo and is often known for her outrageous fashion ensembles that she designs herself. She is very optmistic, though a little insecure at times but not for her cloths which are generally non-figure-flattering.

* Darlene from OneThousandWaysToDie's segment "Die it". She's so desperate to stop being this that she orders [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tapeworm tapeworm larvae]] and swallows them so they'll eat up anything she eats. But since the tapeworm breed and spread inside of her, two months later Darlene loses both 27 kgs... and her own life.
* ''{{Friends}}'': Monica's FormerlyFat past is used for a lot of comic relief and a source of insecurity with her. An alternate universe episode also establishes that if she was still fat, none of her previous boyfriends would have dated her and she'd be a virgin. (Ouch.) Somewhat subverted eventually, when her normal world best friend-come-boyfriend is still her best friend and falls in love with her in the alternate universe as well.

* Averted with ''Series/AmericasNextTopModel'' cycle 10 winner Whitney Thompson, who was confident and wanted to be a role model for girls watching. Unfortunately, her confidence would sometimes come across as arrogance and she also made the mistake of declaring herself better [[FandomBerserkButton than all the other, more popular plus-sized models from the previous cycles.]] Also, it annoyed fans that she was praised by the judges whereas the former plus-sized models were more or less singled out by them. The result made her one of the most [[BaseBreaker divisive]] winners of the show's history.

* Two-Tone from ''[[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians 101 Dalmatians: The Series]]'' is a minor example. She's not really "fat", just slightly chubbier than the rest of the puppies (except [[FatComicRelief Rolly]]), and this isn't brought up at all in the series.
