* In the ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'' episode, "Jumbo Johnny", Johnny is lamenting over the fact that he's not as buff as he wants to be. He ends up getting conned into buying some bogus muscle ripper called "Uber Mass". It only makes him fat [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever (and a giant)]] instead, mostly due to the fact that he chugged down what was supposed to last for six weeks in one night in an attempt to speed up the process. Thing is, Johnny was already pretty muscular to start with.

* Anvil in ''Webcomic/GrrlPower'' is an AmazonianBeauty. When she voices some anxiety about a publicity photo shoot, Sydney sarcastically asks if she's afraid of being "too physically perfect" to which Anvil points out that a significant percentage of people find her height and build grotesque or repulsive rather than desirable or attractive.

* The main character in ''Webcomic/BrunoTheBandit'' is shown to suffer from this, despite being a muscular adventurer, due to comparing himself to the unrealistic proportions of fashion model adventurers, who's musculature reaches ridiculous levels.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead'' has the duo trying to gain a protein shake in hopes that it'll make them more attractive to chicks. After failing to order the actual thing (since they don't have any money) the two go over to Stuart's house and make their own drink using random food from his kitchen. The drink is thoroughly disgusting, but doesn't actually make any difference. The two try exercising for awhile, but quit because it's too hard.

When they return home, they catch a news story that the spokesman they were trying to imitate has just died of a heart attack (not in the least bit surprising considering the mans psychotically energetic behavior).

* A very early episode of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' features [[FatBastard Cartman]] winning an essay contest and getting to be on TV. It's PlayedForLaughs when he sees a commercial advertising a weight gain supplement, and worries that he's too thin when the commercial asks the viewer if they're tired of being a 90-pound weakling (with Cartman estimating that he weighs about 90 pounds - in a third-grader's frame). He gets a supply of the supplement, and bulks up to Jabba the Hutt like levels. He thinks he looks awesome, but anyone else who sees him just says "Goddamn, that's a big fat ass!"

* Titanium Maiden from ''Webcomic/TheHeroesOfCrash'' are very self-conscious about her hulking, amazonian body. It doesn't help that her teammate Cannon refers to her as "Chickzilla". See also the page quote.
