* Mavis Cruet the fairy in ''WesternAnimation/WilloTheWisp''. Most of the jokes are about her weight and the fact she can't fly.
* Toot from ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether''. In one episode they even lampshaded that she just existed to be a one-dimensional fat joke.
** Though ironically she was one of the few characters to receive positive CharacterDevelopment.
* A fair few from ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'': Sadie, who's TheDividual with her skinny friend Katie; Staci, whose weight wasn't much of an issue since she [[WeHardlyKnewYe only lasted one episode]]; Sugar, who had lots of fat humor; and Leshawna, who [[ZigZaggingTrope zigzags]] between this and a BigBeautifulWoman.
* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaPresentsTheRidonculousRace'' had Tammy who barely spoke and was one half of [[spoiler: the lowest ranking team in the whole race.]]
* Penny from ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyB'' is the title character's clumsy, dim-witted, obese best friend, who loves taffy. Although she and Bessie are best friends, Penny also shows loyalty to Portia who is often opposing Bessie or trying to humiliate her.
* In the TV series of ''WesternAnimation/TheLittleMermaid'', one of Ariel's sisters was retconned into a fat girl and she can be seen eating every time she appears.
* Kurst the Worst from ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}''. A rare example of being an antagonist (though she and Mikey become friends towards the end of the series).



* Lizzie from ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor''. Unlike other examples, this isn't brought up a lot.
* Toot from ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether''. In one episode they even lampshaded that she just existed to be a one-dimensional fat joke. Though ironically she was one of the few characters to receive positive CharacterDevelopment.



* Lizzie from ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor''. Unlike other examples, this isn't brought up a lot.
* Hoppopotamus from ''WesternAnimation/TheWuzzles''. Every episode had at least one joke about her weight.

* Cleofatra ([[PunnyName as the name implies]]) in ''WesternAnimation/GravedaleHigh''. Ironic considering that she's a mummy. Her insecurity come in play when she became pen-pan with a handsome (for monster standards) celebrity and sent [[GorgeousGorgon Durze]]'s photo.

Added DiffLines:

* The Creator/DanielleSteel novel ''Big Girl'' features a HollywoodPudgy protagonist who might actually even be a BigBeautifulWoman--although she's spent her whole life as TheUnfavorite to her slim sister and is plagued by insecurities about her looks and her weight, she's very successful professionally and has a decent dating life, even being engaged by the book's conclusion.

* 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 UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}}, 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.

* Winnie, aka Geomancer, in the WhateleyUniverse. She's overweight and shy and has a bad stutter (which gets worse when she's upset). She lives in a dorm at SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy which is full of abnormally beautiful girls, and that makes her feel worse about herself. Fortunately, she has good friends who look out for her.

** As {{Seanbaby}} put it: "[[http://www.cracked.com/blog/the-5-gayest-fattest-most-racist-most-useless-sidekicks-of-all-time/ Wonder Woman finds that nothing is more frustrating when you're trying to make a fat person cry than having them accept all your insults as scientific truths. Why won't you tell me I'm better than you, you diabetes whore!?]]"

* Truth Matini kept at least [[SaltAndPepper two]] such women in his employ during the House Of Truth's first Wrestling/RingOfHonor incarnation for tasks beneath his [[PerkyFemaleMinion Hoopla Hotties]]. All the women seemed to get along well enough but you know this trope's in play when the fatter ones aren't even mentioned by name.[[/folder]]
