* In ''AgeOfMythology'', Atalanta's breasts appear surprisingly prominent given her athletic inclinations. Forget SuperSpeed, her true power must be preventing those things from slapping her in the face.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Spinnerette}}'', this is apparently actually part of a superpower. The FreakLabAccident that causes her super-powers turns her from modest to busty, while having her get toned everywhere else.
** Justified trope for Greta Gravity. She was a busty woman prior to gaining her gravity control powers which explain how she can, well, ''defy gravity''.
** Justified for Super Milf in her origin story. She was a scientist investigating the mysterious alien bio-reactors the military discovered. The reactors suddenly went critical and a huge explosion ensued. Miraculously no one was killed, but the reactors somehow merged with the scientist's breasts, turning her into a very powerful and very busty superheroine. She claims that her costume's generous cleavage helps vent heat from the reactors in her breasts.

* In ''Webcomic/GrrlPower'' protagonist Sydney Scoville, who works for a government agency mostly comprised of superheroines, is told that whatever causes supers to be super in the first place also gives them a superheroic appearance, which means massive muscles for men and large breasts for women even though most superheroines don't have an ounce of fat anywhere else. Sydney herself lacks the Most Common Superpower because she has no powers of her own: her abilites come from {{Phlebotium}} that act as a GreenLanternRing. Consequently she expresses some ACupAngst over her scrawny nerd girl appearance and is not amused when resident BadassNormal Peggy welcomes her to the "A team".

* In ''Webcomic/GrrlPower'' the main character, Syndey, is told that part of whatever causes supers to be super in the first place also gives them large breasts, even though most superheroines don't have even have an ounce of fat anywhere else. Syndey, who has superpowers and works for government agency mostly comprised of superheroines, is one of the few exceptions, as she has a fairly flat chest, and is very insecure about her figure.

* [[http://xmen.adult-fanfiction.org/authors.php?no=1296887221 MarvelMaster616]]'s Franchise/MarvelUniverse fics attempt to justify it - apparently, the X-Gene attempts to compensate for its rarity by making its carriers more attractive (there is also a higher sex drive attached, which is why these fics are often PornWithPlot). One fic actually has Jean posing for a ''{{Magazine/Playboy}}'' centerfold, and the playmate responsible for shooting asks outright who does her boobs - she cannot believe they're real.

* Zigzagged In ComicBook/ZsazsaZaturnnah, in both movie and comic book versions. Zsazsa's boobs can fire lasers. This may or may not be a gag of people looking at women's breasts instead of their eyes.

* ''{{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]]
