* 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.

levels (think RobLiefeld on his worst art day).



* 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.

* In ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'', Dr. Frank-N-Furter created Rocky because he wanted a man with muscles. Frank insults Brad's lean build, and Brad's fiancée Janet replies that she doesn't like a man with "[[ArtisticLicenseBiology too many muscles]]" ([[AudienceParticipation Just one big one!]]). [[SubvertedTrope She somehow quickly changes her mind by the end of the song, just about a minute later, singing, "I'm a muscle fan."]]
* Steve Rogers, whose health problems and weak build keep him from joining the army and getting girls, before he becomes Film/{{Captain America|TheFirstAvenger}}.
* The film adaption of [[ComicBook/GenerationX Generation X]] [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute replaces Husk]] with a girl whose power is a form of SuperStrength where MusclesAreMeaningful that angsts over what's described as grotesquely overdeveloped musculature.

* 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 is disappointed in him because he wanted a son like himself. 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.

* Shin from ''Manga/{{Eyeshield21}}'' doubles his training every time he thinks he under performed due to being too weak. It's not remotely true since he is a LightningBruiser BruceLeeClone and his performance wasn't the issue (the other team brought the play where they know he would have trouble winning) but he still it's not enough and his lack of training is the problem.
