* Another very young example is [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Gideon]] [[EnfanteTerrible Gleeful]]. He's ten years old and his suit is baby blue, but he's chubby, pig-like, has an impressive Southern drawl, is a CorruptHick and a [[TroublinglyUnchildlikeBehavior villain through and through.]]

* Averted with "Big Daddy" Labouff from ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog''. He's a Fat, Sweaty Southerner in a White Suit and a bit of a glutton, but a pretty NiceGuy.
%%* Played straight with another John Goodman one: Layton T. Montgomery from ''WesternAnimation/BeeMovie''. John Goodman seems to like that role.
%%* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rango}}'' has the mayor of Dirt, minus the sweaty part -- reptiles can't sweat.

Historical figures who sported the Southern white suit included Creator/MarkTwain and Colonel Harland Sanders[[note]]The founder of KentuckyFriedChicken[[/note]]; but neither of them was particularly fat or particularly villainous. Mark Twain's satires of Southern aristocracy might have been the TropeCodifier here; Colonel Grangerford, from ''Literature/HuckleberryFinn'', might be an example.

Added DiffLines:

* An ancillary character in ''Film/{{Psycho}}'', a customer at the realty office Marion works for. He flirts outrageously with her and ostentatiously pays for his tens-of-thousands-of-dollars purchase in cash ("Never carry more than I can afford to lose!"), which sets off the plot.

** Big Daddy on the Spinoff Showcase "Wiggum P.I." is a classic example.
** Wiggum himself gets a related classic line, after watching a racially-insensitive cartoon: "Even I find this offensive, and I'm a fat Southern Sheriff!"

** Blake Dexter, the BigBad of ''[[VideoGame/HitmanAbsolution Absolution]]'' and an industrialist who kidnaps Victoria.

** Blake Dexter, the BigBad of ''[[VideoGame/HitmanAbsolution Absolution]]'' Absolution]]'', is a subversion: he's got the look, the suit, the drawl and an industrialist who kidnaps Victoria.the attitude for this trope down to a T, except he's actually from [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Dakota South Dakota]], which, you might notice, is nowhere near the south and only 400 miles from the Canadian border. It's obvious from Dexter's appearance that he was originally meant to be Texan, as was his hometown of but both were changed sometime before release.

* The movie ''Film/{{Life}}'' features at least three examples. Two were prison wardens, the first of whom fits the trope to a T. The second warden is identical in appearance but a much more decent human being. A minor but eventually important villain in the beginning of the film also shows that fat, sweaty, white-bedecked Southern bastards aren't exclusively white.
