* 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 HeroicBuild, which means large breasts for women even though most superheroines don't have an ounce of fat anywhere else. Sydney, who has no superpowers of her own because her abilities come from a halo of [[{{Phlebotinum}} orbs]] that act as a GreenLanternRing consequently lacks the Most Common Superpower as well. She expresses some ACupAngst over her scrawny nerd girl appearance (particularly compared to the aptly-named Maxima) and is not amused when resident BadassNormal and fellow {{pettanko}} Peggy welcomes her to the "A team".

* This trope is averted in ''WearingTheCape''. Hope/Astra, while a FlyingBrick, describes herself as "built like an underage pixie" and has a stuffed bra built into her costume to make her look older. Elsewhere she comments that the practice of incorporating wonderbras into superheroine's costumes is almost universal.

* In ''Webcomic/EternalKnights'', most of the main female cast is [[http://eternalknightsuniverse.com/comics/18/ large-breasted]], with the artistic intention being to accentuate their warmth, softness, and womanly humanity; this is used as a visual counterpoint to the [[http://eternalknightsuniverse.com/comics/50/ relatively small-breasted Arayna]], to make her seem less soft and inviting in contrast.

** Greta Gravity was a busty woman prior to gaining her gravity control powers which explain how she can, well, ''defy gravity''. When her abilities get nullified at one point, her first indication that something is seriously wrong is the sudden sagging up front.

* {{Justified|Trope}} in the ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'', since the Exemplar power that a lot of these teenaged mutants possess reshapes their body image to what they subconsciously think it ought to be. With a few exceptions, a lot of these teenaged girls have huge tracts of land for their age, just as a lot of these teenaged boys look way too buff for growing high school boys. Phase has said that Mindbird and [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Attributes]] have some of the most "powerful" Most Common Super Power among the students, and her girlfriend Vox has that power too.

** There's also the tidbit that most superheroines wear some sort of protective armor over the easily-hurt parts. Phase, who has both male genitals (and gender) as well as feminine breasts, has kinetic gel protection in his supersuit, and he hates that it makes him even more endowed while at the same time making his male parts more pronounced (which makes him a target for homophobes).
