* In general this is Oda's art style for musclebound characters, especially prominent for anyone HulkingOut.

* This is the effect one gets out of [[http://undertale.wikia.com/wiki/Greater_Dog Greater Dog]] in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' due to its very large upper body carried around on stumpy legs. The [[TinyHeadedBehemoth tiny dog face]] helps complete the look. [[spoiler:Turns out it's a normal sized dog in a sort of mechanized suit of armor, so the actual dog is not that top-heavy at all.]]

* "Manga/BoboboboBobobo" has some pretty long legs, but they're ridiculously slim for such a muscular guy, and there's seemingly not enough room in the area they come together in to actually fit a groin. It's the least odd thing about his appearance, really, considering the seventies attire, blond afro, and grill-mark tattoos lining his arms.

* Burrowing animals (assuming they have limbs at all) tend to have body proportions like these, although they aren't normally built to stand upright. So do hyenas and pinnipeds.

* Pro weightlifter Sajad Gharibi, a.k.a. "the Iranian [[ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk Hulk]]", is an Instragram star with his massive upper body and wide shoulders, though legs day isn't something he skips as his thighs are almost as big as his biceps.

A type of caricature style of drawing the human male figure as having a huge torso and arms, but legs that appear too small to support the upper body, either by being too skinny and/or too short. This trope is an exaggeration of male bodybuilders (or any reasonably toned man with low body fat) having the ideal "triangle" figure of a broad chest and shoulders with a narrow waist. The drawn form of this can range from a moderately large torso and legs that are just a bit too skinny, to legs that are short and stubby and the torso is freakishly huge to keep the guy still at normal height.

* Kai from ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda3'' has absolutely ''tiny'' legs, making up less than about 25% of his total height and his extremely bow-legged stance makes them look even shorter. Poe actually has pretty short legs as well, though not nearly to the same extreme.

* ''VideoGame/Persona4'' has the ''very'' effeminate Shadow Kanji. The strange thing is, Shadow Kanji has two bodies (sort of); Shadow Kanji's first body resides in a top heavy black and white body while resting in a bouquet of [[BaraGenre roses]].
