* ''{{Franchise/Terminator}} 3'' lampshades this since the T-X is able to adjust its breast size and shape to better win over male humans.
* Averted in ''Film/{{Supergirl}}'' by the [[BigBraToFill modestly-endowed Helen Slater]], whose bra size is 32A according to several online sources. In an interview with ''Starlog'' magazine, Slater noted "In the comics, Supergirl is quite, um, buxom... so I hope people won't come to the film expecting that."

* [[InCryptid]]'s Antimony Price goes against the family type by having this, though depending on interpretation this may also be common with her Grandma Alice, who Verity credits for taking potshots at the Boob Fairy. Though [[ItMakesSenseInContext the mice describe]] Alice as having a fantastic rack, the text also consistently describes the more modestly endowed Verity as looking much like her grandmother - presently, not in her youth, due to Alice Price spending a lot of time in alternate dimensions where time flows more slowly or even backwards and thus being considerably OlderThanSheLooks.

* The [[http://ragnell.blogspot.com/2006/05/power-girl-you-be-judge.html urban legend]] goes that legendary comics artist Wally Wood, one of the original artists for ComicBook/PowerGirl at Creator/DCComics, started enlarging her chest issue-to-issue to see how far he could go with it before the suits upstairs caught on. Again, this is just a myth; however, it started a tradition, and it's often considered one -- er, ''two'' of the main features of the character, i.e. that she has ''even larger'' breasts than the average generously-endowed {{superhero}}ine. Plus the "boob window" over her cleavage making them that much more obvious.

* Hilariously lampshaded in ''Series/Conan''. He went with his graphic designer, Pierre Bernard, to the DC studios on the Dec 16, 2010 episode. Pierre showed his sketches of updating some DC women heroes. He showed drawings he did for Wonder Woman and Catwoman with ridiculously large breasts. The kicker was when he also produced a picture of Martha Kent, Superman's adopted mother, with abnormally large breasts. The sketches can be seen at Youtube [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0U2hRc3u_Q]]

* In the first issue of DC's New 52 ComicBook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws, Red Hood has to break Arsenal/Speedy/Red Arrow out of a prison in a Middle Eastern country. While they're being chased, Arsenal asks if Hood brought any backup, and Hood replies, "38 of them." While Arsenal's still trying to figure that out, Starfire flies by and blows up a tank.

* Lucy from ComicBook/HalloweenMan, even more so since becoming plus-sized, which has given her the Most Common Super Power in spades due to BreastExpansion as well as becoming a {{BBW}}. A lot of this has been played for laughs, recently leading to a few MyEyesAreUpHere moments.

* The whole premise of ''Webcomic/SidekickGirl'' is that superheroes are chosen because they "look the part" and sidekicks are assigned on the basis of the heroes' needs. This leaves the intelligent and skillful but [[HollywoodHomely relatively plain]] Valerie as HypercompetentSidekick to a telegenic and curvaceous blond bombshell [[TheBrainlessBeauty Brainless Beauty]] named Illumina, with a (highly inaccurate) reputation for getting a long string of sidekicks killed with her incompetence. Valerie was picked because she can't die -- and [[BlessedWithSuck that's it]]. No HealingFactor, no immunity to injury or pain. She just doesn't ''die'' from anything. She can suffer, though. Man, can she suffer.

** As noted above, her mother, being MJ Watson, is considerably better endowed.

** This trope is lampshaded by Tara after Elliot [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2133 transforms into a modified version of Cheerleadra:]]
-->'''Tara:''' I have to ask, ''is'' there a combat advantage to having large mammaries, and if so, do I ''want'' to know what it is?

* The cover of ''TabletopGame/MutantsAndMasterminds'' 3rd edition depicts a variety of apparently male supers [[note]]The one in powered armor [[AllThereInTheManual is actually female]], but you [[SamusIsAGirl wouldn't know that from looking at her]][[/note]] and one obvious female, "Princess", who is wearing a very tight, pink, midriff-bearing top that calls attention to her well-shaped bust (while it may not be all ''that'' large, it's certainly... pneumatic).
