* On the fifth season of ''[[RuPaulsDragRace RuPaul's Drag Race]]'', finalist Roxxxy Andrews kept referring to herself as a "big girl". While she may have been overweight in the past, on the show Roxxxy looked like an average man out of drag, and in drag she was curvy but not fat, especially compared to previous contestants who were considerably heavier. Since she lost over 70 pounds before the show, why she was so eager to take that label is a mystery.

* Norm on ''Series/Cheers'' is, as he puts it when asked what he's "up to", "My ideal weight if I were 11 feet tall."

* ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' will typically put Bobby Moynihan in any role requiring a fat person, such as Chris Christie or Toronto mayor Rob Ford. Moynihan is a little chubby in the face, but in body weight he's about equal with Chris Parnell when he was on the show, and Parnell was never given "fat guy" roles. In fact, one of the more famous sketches Moynihan appeared in (Beyonce's Single Ladies video) had him in a unitard and showed just how slim he truly was.

Compare HollywoodHomely, UnkemptBeauty, MuscleAngst, and BigBeautifulWoman. Contrast InformedAttractiveness, RealWomenHaveCurves, and of course HollywoodThin.

* Averted and played with throughout ''GavinAndStacey'' in which Ruth Jones' character Nessa is distinctly overweight, in a BBW sort of way - but averted by the character being a fairly OTT comic grotesque. It's also heavily implied that she is a vigorous, passionate woman in bed. Nessa's on-off partner Smithy (James Corden) is plain fat by any standards, and there is a running subtext about how no-one can really understand what either saw in the other.

* Although Etta Candy started as a rambunctious and sweets-addicted FatGirl in the Golden Age ''WonderWoman'' comics, her more modern depictions can be this trope, DependingOnTheArtist of course. In George Perez's reboot, she started overweight, but then worked out and had a military muscular frame. In Gail Simone's run, the artists usually just had her looking slightly thicker than Diana, but otherwise being an average, curvy blonde woman (the change from her old self was eventually explained as being from her government training). Although, since the New 52 reboot this trope is bypassed, as the newest incarnation of Etta is more conventionally slender and doesn't seem to have any remarks about her weight.

That got some criticism from some fans (similarly to the protests about the New 52 Amanda Waller being heavily slimmed down and youthened to become a generic sexpot) and the ''Rebirth'' Etta went back to being moderately heavy.

* A VerySpecialEpisode of ''Series/FullHouse'' has D.J. starving herself and overexercising to the point of passing out at the gym, in an effort to make herself look more like Aunt Becky. The episode ends with Becky giving her a speech about how she went through a chubby phase too, and eventually her body grew into her weight. Candace Cameron-Bure is not now, and was not then, noticeably any fuller-figured than Lori Loughlin.

* In one scene ''Film/TheIncredibles'', Helen sees herself in the mirror when she's wearing her new superhero outfit, and lets out a sigh, clearly not pleased with the HartmanHips she's developed over the past 15 years. WordOfGod confirms this trope was deliberately invoked as she is being overly critical of her own physique.
