* 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.

* The premise of [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10530109/1/Ryouou-All-Girls-Sumo-Tournament Ryouou All Girls' Sumo Tournament]] is that everyone female at [[LuckyStar Ryouou High School]] is magically fattened up for a sumo tournament to be held there. Including any teachers and the school nurse. [[http://dmxrated.deviantart.com/gallery/55381290/Ryouou-All-Girls-Sumo-Tournament Corresponding pics here.]]

* Nikuko from ''Manga/PleaseTellMeGalkoChan'', a chubby girl who plays on the girls' soccer team at Galko's school. While there are a fair share of jokes about Nikuko's weight, she's [[{{Acrofatic}} still fairly athletic]] and gets her fair share of attention from the male students.

* Franchise/WonderWoman's sidekick, [[MeaningfulName Etta Candy]], in the '40s. Woo woo! Etta is a notable {{aver|tedTrope}}sion for being something of an ActionGirl, not the slightest bit insecure, and frequently important to the plot; although still serving as PluckyComicRelief. Since the dawn of the SilverAge, she's been relegated to the [[TheScrappy Scrappy Heap,]] and her rare reappearances usually either depict her as insecure [[UnfortunateImplications (since obviously a plus-sized woman cannot possibly be confident or happy),]] or else emphasize her ActionGirl status while slimming her down a fair bit.

* ComicBook/SheHulk had a friend, "Weezie" Mason, who featured in the Creator/JohnByrne run. She was originally a GoldenAge character, but she stuck around SheHulk because [[NoFourthWall she was trying to invoke]] ComicBookTime (Seeing as characters only age off screen.)
