* 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.

Sydney, on her part, is prone to expressing concern about how she (being short, skinny, and flat-chested) compares to all her tall, muscular, and stacked compatriots.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': The episode where Marge goes into bodybuilding had her obsessed with gaining muscle, despite being very muscular even for a man, due to her run-in with a mugger at the beginning of the episode. The muscle gain becomes a way for her to get rid of her feeling of helplessnes, until it becomes a goal in itself.

* 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 (think RobLiefeld on his worst art day).

* Hiccup of ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' is physically the weakest of all the characters, to his chagrin. It doesn't help that his father is practically a tank, and Hiccup believes that his lack of muscle is the reason behind his father's disappointment in him; in reality, as Gobber stated, it's more about "what's inside [Hiccup] that [Stoick] can't stand", which also doesn't help. Hiccup's strength lies in his smarts, but Vikings don't understand that as well as brute force. The [[WesternAnimation/DragonsRidersOfBerk show]] explores this further in the episode were Stoick has Hiccup drawn very muscular on a shield painting, which Stoick doesn't catch on how this hurts his son's feelings and only worsens his already ingrained insecurities. And while does remain leaner than most as he grows up, he ''does'' get stronger (i.e., being able punch the brawnier Snotlout so hard he also lost a couple of teeth) and many other Vikings (including the Twins and Snotlout) still point out his scrawniness in an unflattering way (either for [[PlayedForLaughs laughs]] or [[PlayedForDrama drama]]).

** In ''IF'', [[spoiler:Enoshima]] teases her twin sister [[spoiler:Ikusaba]] to be too muscular, although that is rater an InformedDeformity. But since it's [[spoiler:Enoshima]] we are talking about, she may just trolling her.
