* Happens occasionally on ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends''
** Jon puts on a noticeable amount of weight in one episode, and decides to go on a diet, especially after seeing an appetizing looking diet program on tv. [[VeryFalseAdvertising He along with Garfield are both sorely disappointed when the food turns out to be the size of a grain of rice and tastes terrible.]]
** Jon's neighbors, the Burnsides, decide to move, tired of Garfield always stealing their food. They soon realize, however that with Garfield, no longer around, they both put on a lot of weight in a very short amount of time. They quickly move back before they end up "looking like elephants by Christmastime".

* The lighthearted ''ComicBook/WhatIf'' #34 showed an Earth where [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark]] had an eating problem instead of a drinking problem. He once ordered an ''entire cow'' for dinner along with [[AndADietCoke a diet soda.]] He eventually couldn't use the rockets in his suit and had to get his armor on using a crowbar.

* In the plot to take down Regina George in ''Film/MeanGirls'', her "killer bod" is one of the items that comes under attack. The means? Protein-heavy granola bars that are supposed to help athletes gain weight, passed to Regina as if they're diet bars. Despite Regina's weight gain being a significant plot point, [[HollywoodPudgy the actress' size doesn't change in the slightest.]]

** One episode dealt with this as seriously as the show could could. Sabrina tried to lose weight in order to fit into a dress for an upcoming dance, but then started using shoddy diet drinks from the Other Realm. To make matters worse, the salesman put a spell on her bedroom mirror to make her reflection look morbidly obese. Zelda found out what happened when she saw her butt reflected much bigger than it was, and took the spell off. Unfortunately, by that point Sabrina legitimately believed she was huge and kept taking the diet shakes until she became invisible. She [[IncrediblyLamePun wasted away into nothing.]]

* This happens to Stella Stone in ''Theatre/GreatBritain'' when she keeps losing weight for Page 7 of the Free Press and becomes anorexic. Unlike most examples of this trope, this was taken ''very'' seriously, turning first act comic relief and BrainlessBeauty into a KnightOfCerebus and [[CerebusSyndrome causing the play to take a fairly dark turn.]] [[spoiler: She ends up being hospitalised early in the second act, and despite being force-fed she eventually reaches the point where her body is just starting to die, in no small part due to Paige's manipulation.

* Amy Rose took this UpToEleven in ''VideoGame/SonicBattle,'' being obsessed with boxercising and later being coached by [[RobotBuddy Emerl,]] who instructed her to do 100 push-ups and eat nothing but salad with no dressing. This is taken to creepy levels as, rather than merely lamenting about her weight and failing to maintain a diet like most examples, Amy really appears to be suffering from an eating disorder.

* Subverted in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''; Hanako claims to be dieting (which means she only eats one bucket of curry), and uses it as a justification for [[FatBastard not sharing some of her food]] [[BigEater (despite having more than enough to share)]] [[FatBastard with the starving protagonists]].

** "Sweets and Sour Marge" played with this trope by having Springfield named "America's Fattest Town" and the citizens are overjoyed by being famous for something.

She strives to sue a sugar-manufacturing company out of protest for destroying the town's health, only to have ''all'' sugar banned from Springfield. Homer and Bart work to undo this because life without sugar is too much of a hell to comprehend, and although Homer pulls back for Marge's sake, the judge overturns his decision and [[StatusQuoIsGod things go back to normal.]]
** In "Krusty Gets Kancelled," Bart and Lisa were shocked when they discover a morbidly obese Krusty in his apartment just as they were to announce that they got all of the celebrities (sans Elizabeth Taylor) needed for his comeback special. Krusty declared that he was on a steady diet of milkshakes. [[OhCrap Lisa asked if they were diet milkshakes.]] Luckily, the Simpson family [[TrainingMontage got him back in shape just in time]].

* Generally speaking, woman not only gain weight more easily than men, but many have a significantly more difficult time losing it, particularly in the abdomen. There are theories as to why this is (stress from maintaining societies standards, as a side-effect of a woman's reproductive abilities, ect.), but many people are split on the exact reason. Along the same vine, regardless of gender, weight-loss becomes harder and harder as a person ages, so a twenty-year old would have a much easier time of it than a forty-year-old.

* While it's not the same as the 'big-boned' myth, there is such a thing as being "Endomorphic"; people with wider builds who gain weight more easily and add it to the abdomen.

* An episode of ''Series/ThatsSoRaven'' deals with this in a [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped surprisingly effective manner]] (namely because it deals with the conditions that ''create'' Weight Woe in the first place). After having a vision of herself modeling clothes on a runway, Raven enters a fashion magazine's design contest by submitting a photo of herself in a dress she created. Though she wins the contest, the editor of the magazine severely edits the picture to make Raven look much thinner. When Raven takes her to task for this, the editor explains that Raven simply "doesn't have 'the look,'" and Raven responds that "This is the only look I have." In the end, Raven teams up with another model (who, though thin, points out that even ''she'' doesn't look like her photo-edited image in the magazine), each wearing a copy of the dress in the appropriate sizes. The audience loves it, and the editor ends up humiliated in front of everyone.

She worries that her legs are getting fat, and Charles reassures that that's not the case...only to remark that her "huge ass could be throwing off [his] frame of reference."



* Explored in a very unusual sense on an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheMagicSchoolBus'', in which the "woe" aspect comes not from fat or musculature, but ''gravity''. Phoebe is concerned that she is unable to perform a special basketball feat for an upcoming game, and Ms. Frizzle uses this as an opportunity to teach the class about the concept of gravity. The bus transforms into an artificial planet, and the gravity is altered depending on how small or big the bus is. Unfortunately, someone knocks the gravity controls into high gear, enlarging the bus and increasing the gravity to such a degree that the kids are barely able to move and in danger of being crushed. Thankfully they manage to reach the controls in time before something bad happens.oy

** ''Make Love, Not Warcraft'': The boys spend weeks doing nothing but killing boars to power up in ''WorldOfWarcraft'' so they can finally stop the one player who keeps killing everybody's characters whenever they try to go on quest. In the process, Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman become overweight, greasy haired shut ins with horrendous acne.

Added DiffLines:

* A one-time segment on ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}'' featured "Fatman and Boy Blubber," two morbidly obese superheroes who protect the overweight people of the world. After saving the chubby Louis from bullies, they deliver (supposedly) inspirational lectures about their own struggles with obesity, including their attempts to stay healthy and tendency to eat fast food and snacks while traveling. It all turns out to be a sham, as the segment ends with Fatman and Boy Blubber trying to steal Louis's sweet buns for themselves.
* "Arthur Weighs In," an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'', had the titular aardvark discovering that he needed to wear a "husky" suit for a play (despite not looking any different) after [[CompressedVice abruptly developing lazy habits that had never shown up before]]). He struggles to lose the weight by going on a diet; Brain then tells him that restrictive diets don't work--a surprising case of TruthInTelevision for a kid's show--and are ''especially'' dangerous for children, instead suggesting that he eat a variety of foods and make healthier choices instead. Mr. Ratburn (who turns out to be FormerlyFat himself) then helps Arthur out by encouraging him to exercise by providing the whole class with pedometers. The combination of better eating and more physical activity helps Arthur shed the excess pounds, and he wears a smaller suit for the play.

* In the eight issue to the comic tie-in of Marvel's ''TheSuperheroSquadShow'', most of the Squaddies had tried to retrieve an Infinity Fractal before the Blob could get it for Doctor Doom. But the Fractal activated and somehow made the Blob slender while making the Squaddies fat. The effect only lasted as long as Blob held onto the Fractal, which he did on Doctor Doom's orders to incapacitate the Squad. The story ended with the Squaddies attempting to utilize their new girth to stop crime before they turn back to normal. On the other end the Blob was depressed that he'd gotten so small, and finally dropped the Fractal because he wasn't comfortable with his thin body.
