* ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' - Shortly after she meets Hercules, Meg flexes her twig arms and nothing bulges. They remain little twigs.
** Herc himself back when he was a scrawny teenager. During the early parts of the "One Last Hope" training montage, Phil has him flex while he measures Hercs bicep with a tape measure, and poor awkward Herc can barely muster a tiny bump despite his SuperStrength. Cut to some 5 years or so later of TrainingFromHell, and Herc repeats the scene, except now he's a hulking adonis who ''snaps'' the tape measure when he flexes.

* An episode of ''TheSimpsons'' has the family visiting a boardwalk circus selling off its assetts. Homer contemplates buying a weight from a strongman, noting that he could use a bit of toning. He flexes an arm, with no result, then pokes the arm, causing his ''whole body'' to jiggle. Homer ends up buying the weight, but only works out one arm, leaving him with one massive arm and one arm just as out of shape.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' episode "Sleepover", Marco attempts to impress his crush Jackie by flexing his right arm. Despite being fit (he practices martial arts), his bicep doesn't bulge.

* [[Wrestling/WilliamRegal Steven Regal]] used to do a routine where he'd flex, nothing would happen, and then he'd use his finger to push a "bicep" up. The funny part being that Regal was only non-muscular as compared to the other wrestlers (who commonly stuffed themselves with steroids), and that he was legitimately tougher than almost all of them.

* Sokka from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' can't help but flex his "muscles" every time he sees his reflection. Even Suki, who knew him for literally a day notices it, and on their second encounter teasingly asks if he's been working out lately to provoke this reaction. Of course, he falls for it.

* in ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'', the weedy Jason draws battleships on his biceps, so they can bob up and down when he flexes. When Paige points out they aren't moving, he wonders if he should have started with a lighter ship.
