Added DiffLines:

* Some of the Blades in ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles2'' have this appearance. One of the [[ComMon common Blades]] has this body shape, while the rare Blades Newt and Wulfric also have this. Wulfric has an enormous torso with large arms on top of a narrow waist; although his legs are also fairly muscular. Newt is a normally proportioned female with two extra, gigantic arms; she does push-ups no problem, but the weight distribution makes sit-ups nearly impossible.

* Darkrai from ''{{Pokemon}}'' normally has a triangular torso and a thin, spindle-like waist, with a pair of clawed arms but no legs, but when Darkrai actually ''does'' show its legs, they're actually very thin and bony.

* 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.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}'' has Samson's independent form, detached from his host, [[NiceGirl Filia]]. Filia is also a downplayed, female version; she has a very heavy midsection (chubby abdomen, large breasts, big thighs, and muscly forearms) but has legs so spindly its a miracle they can support her in the first place. What makes it stranger is that they fight as a team, and most of their strongest attacks are kicks.

** Big Band shows up later as DLC and, while his overall appearance doesn't suggest it, he is in fact built like this: beneath that BadassLongcoat, he turns out to be a normal sized human head protruding from a huge, bell-shaped iron lung, resting atop two relatively small and slender legs. [[https://imgur.com/a/11hs7 This is easiest to see]] when he does his Double Sax snapback.

* Franky in ''Manga/OnePiece'' was a prominent example before the timeskip. Afterwards, it became [[http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130225034035/onepiece/images/8/8c/Franky_Anime_Post_Timeskip_Infobox.png absolutely preposterous.]] Why he looks like that is justified in that he's a cyborg who built himself; how he can stand is left to the imagination. Bartholomew Kuma is another prominent example. While normally LeanAndMean, Rob Lucci's [[{{Animorphism}} leopard Zoan fruit]] gives him a hybrid form with a profile similar to Kuma. In general this is Oda's art style for musclebound characters, especially prominent for anyone HulkingOut.

* Brick from ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' isn't one of the most extreme example of this trope, [[http://www.blogiversity.org/blogs/willburns1/Screen%20shot%202009-10-22%20at%2012.15.24%20PM.jpg but his legs are noticeably thinner than the rest of his body,]] which keeps his body distinctly triangular.
