** Another unfortunate case from the series was Karen's cousin [[http://willandgrace.wikia.com/wiki/Barry Barry]], who receives a makeover from Will and Jack in Season 5. He's only ''slightly'' chubby pre-makeover, but to hear Jack talk, he's a whale. (But again, this ''is'' Jack we're talking about.)

* In ''StripSearch'', an interrogator tells Creator/MaggieGyllenhaal she could stand to lose a few pounds. However, it's not clear what the character actually believes. He is an interrogator trying to break her will.

* In ''BrideWars'', there's a scene that's pretty much lifted from ''Film/MeanGirls'', in which Kate Hudson's character is somehow tricked into eating five pounds worth of chocolate and can't fit into her wedding dress. In his [[http://blip.tv/file/4019183 review]] of the movie, [[WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown Film Brain]] points this out:

* In the {{Area 88}} manga, Greg is referred to as fat. He's stout (but nowhere near obese) compared to the rest of the rail-thin cast.

* Circa late 2010, critics of Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses griped that a number of the site's popular video producers -- including WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic, [[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".

* {{Defied|trope}} by {{executive veto}}. While he was booking for Wrestling/{{WCW}}, Wrestling/VinceRusso frequently booked angles about female wrestlers such as Wrestling/{{Madusa}} being ugly or otherwise undesirable. Russo was blocked by none other than Ted Turner himself however when he wanted to run angle centered around how fat WCW's women wrestler were.

* A throw-away gag during the first ''Comicbook/NewAvengers'' tenure has [[SpiderWoman Jessica Drew]] entering ''The Raft'', a high security prison, with a bag of donuts in her hands loudly complaining about how fat she got in the previous months of inactivity, and offering to share her breakfast with whoever is able to provide her with suitable information about an impending breakout. While the villains fall for the trick (loudly asking for Jessica to surrender the donuts in exchange for their full, unbridled cooperation, implying that the usual gruel they're usually served is really foul), Jessica's implied image issues are somewhat lessened by her skintight HotLibrarian tailleur, showing off her usual voluptuous physique, busty but nowhere as fat to need dieting.

* A similar angle started in 2009 and carried over into 2010, this time featuring Wrestling/MickieJames (a face) in the role of the Hollywood Pudgy gal while [[Wrestling/LayCool Michelle McCool and Layla El]] (heels) ripped on her for being fat, even going so far as to give her the nickname "Piggie James". Unlike Molly, Mickie was okay with the angle, likely because she was casts in a sympathetic light and was released for unrelated reasons (being late for a bus in the UK).

Unlike Molly, Mickie was okay with the angle, likely because she was casts in a sympathetic light and was released for unrelated reasons (being late for a bus in the UK). In fact, James had taken part in a single angle against Mary Apache as part of La Sociedad (granted, it was nowhere near as central to the feud).

* In 2012, Irish Airborne Dave and Jake Crist teamed up with Sami Callihan to form Ohio Is For Killers in Wrestling/{{CZW}}. While the CZW fans loved this and began to {{c|rowdchant}}hant "[=OI4K=]" whenever they showed up, some other fans of the Christs [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks weren't too happy]] and started calling them "[[FanNickName Oink]]" based on the perception they had gotten fatter and degenerated into being skewered for a living. ''Technically'' true but [[http://www.czwrestling.com/lockerroom/oi4k.php grossly overstated]].
