* According to Wrestling/MariaKanellis, she was actually once told backstage by management (*cough* Johnny Ace) that she was fat. Maria "Playboy covergirl" Kanellis. Maria, "The Underfed Redhead" (as Lay-Cool called her)? The same Maria who, on her best days, has a very noticeable six-pack? She has also said that other girls often get told to drop a few pounds.

* Rich Swann and Jessicka Havok [[YouFightLikeACow threw these weight and diet jokes at each other in an attempt to gain an edge]] and Allysin Kay called Havok fat [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness when declaring she had no more use for her.]] For the record, all three look perfectly fine.

* Calvin Klein got a lot of criticism in 2014 for promoting [[https://thefashionrundown.wordpress.com/2014/11/18/myla-dalbesio-plus-size-model/ Myla Dalbesio]], whose ribcage was visible in one pose, as their first "plus size" model.

* In Kim's pre-fight intro with Dan in ''VideoGame/SNKVsCapcomSVCChaos'', he notices Dan has a beer gut and offers to help him lose some weight. Dan's actual in-game sprite is just as muscular and athletic as those of the other {{Shotoclone}} characters, and shows no signs of being overweight.

** Another unfortunate case from the series is Karen's cousin [[http://willandgrace.wikia.com/wiki/Barry Barry]], who receives a makeover from Will and Jack in Season 5. He has only the ''slightest'' hint of a gut pre-makeover, but to hear Jack talk, he's a whale -- in fact, we're told he sent Barry to "fat camp" in the time between his first appearance and his second. (But again, this ''is'' Jack we're talking about; Will seems to be focused more on Barry's lack of style and social graces than his weight.)

* Circa late 2010, critics of Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses griped that a number of the site's popular video producers -- including WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic, [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]], WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick, WebVideo/MarzGurl, [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]], and WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob -- had become unattractively overweight.[[note]] Specific comments included "It's like a company fitness plan in reverse", "Doug just gets older and fatter every year", and "Spoony's been blowing up like Violet Beauregarde" (the latter of which was spoken by [[{{Hypocrite}} an obese individual]]).[[/note]] While many of the individuals in question admit to having put on a few pounds since they first started making videos, none of them are heavy enough to be classified as medically overweight, let alone unattractively so. And hopefully ''no'' sane person would consider a six-foot tall string bean like Doug Walker "fat".

*** The same can be said for Brad Jones, who (after his marriage ended in divorce) lost so much weight that fans began to speculate that he had a terminal illness (it didn't help that he shaved his head around that same time).

* PlayedForLaughs in ''WebAnimation/RWBYChibi''. One segment had Yang realize she looked a little fat (despite looking normal) and perform a strenuous exercise routine. She seems proud of being fit until she sees Nora pack away an entire cake and burp it all away, which pisses her off.

* ''Series/EmptyNest'': Carol spends the entire run of the series obsessed with her weight and convinced that she's fat, to the point of denouncing herself as "a fat pig" should she weigh more than 120 pounds. This borders on body dysmorphic disorder, as not only is she not fat, for all their relentless teasing of her, none of the other cast members tease her about her weight.

* Mio and Mugi from ''Manga/KOn'' tend to get worried about their weight gain at the end of the year, and are envious of Yui's high metabolism. Even Ritsu can be manipulated into drum practice with this fear, though.
** However according to Ritsu, Mio's weight goes to her [[BuxomIsBetter breasts]].

* ''Manga/CrayonShinChan'' has a RunningGag about Shin Chin's mother Misae supposedly being overweight even though she looks like she has a healthy figure for her age, with physical signs of fatness only appearing for small visual gags.
** In one episode of the anime where Misae took up ballet, the male instructor broke his spine trying to pick her up.
*** The same episode has Misae freaking out over weighing 55kg (121lb) even though she's 159 cm (5'2.5) tall.

* In ''Film/MeanGirls'', Regina "gets fat" and her friends ditch her. The actress herself doesn't seem to gain a noticeable amount of weight.
** This could be a reference to the trope, though, as gaining any weight at all would make her 'fat' to her shallow, image-obsessed friends.

* ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'': In the season 7 episode "She's Having My Baby Back Ribs", Topanga worries that she's fat so she goes on a diet, which hilariously leads Cory (and everyone else) to misinterpret her actions and think she's pregnant. The end of the episode involves everyone telling Topanga she's not fat and Mr. Feeny delivering the aesop about living in a world of unreasonable standards. This episode apparently came into existence because the press flipped out about Danielle Fishel's very slight weight gain during the run of the show (basically, she went from a skinny pre-teen to a curvy adult.)
** On the other hand, the other characters act as though Topanga was developing an eating disorder when she never did anything more radical than try to stop eating junkfood.

* Wrestling/TammyLynnSytch a.k.a. Sunny once posted a scathing blog about seeing fat rolls on the Wrestling/BellaTwins. If [[Wrestling/JerryLawler King]] ever hears about this then Sunny should sleep with one eye open.
** This was actually addressed and REALLY PlayedForDrama in an episode of ''Total Divas''. Nikki Bella who has never been anything remotely resembling overweight, was highly offended when someone referred to her as "the fat twin" on Instagram. It got even worse when Brie noted how much of a BigEater her sister was and got paranoid about an upcoming photoshoot. She attempted to get her sister to do a ridiculous magazine cleanse - having nothing but juice for 20 days - and calling her fat thinking "tough love" would motivate her sister. Instead she gave a CrowningMomentOfAwesome speech on how the two of them both look fine and don't need to put their bodies through so much hell for the sake of 3 or 4 pounds.

* ''VideoGame/TheSims2'' provides 2 body type options in the Create-A-Sim tool. The "fat" body type is barely any different from the "slim" figure.
* For some undecipherable reason, ''VideoGame/TheSims3'' allows males to get MUCH fatter (at least much more realistically so) than females, who are adamantly maintained into at least a rubenesque figure.
* [[NiceGirl Filia]] from ''Videogame/{{Skullgirls}}'' is 5'4, and weighs 142 pounds, and is 16 year olds, which is fairly heavy for a girl her age, and is about 0.6 BMI from being considered medically overweight.[[ImpossibleHourglassFigure This]] [[BareYourMidriff is]] [[http://skullgirls.com/characters/filia/ Filia]], by the way.

[=GLaDOS=] also observes in the co-op mode that [[BlueAndOrangeMorality for some reason, humans frown on weight variance, and so, if you want to upset a human, you can try telling them that their weight has varied positively or negatively]].
** In an interesting twist on this trope, the game designers said that they actually made Chell's figure slightly more rounded, as if she had put on a few pounds since the previous game.
