* It should be noted that almost all Asian races have to be quite careful about their obesity due to the genetical predisposition to store visceral fat (which is harder to burn) and are very sensitive to it.

* An ongoing plot point in ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'' was Cleveland Jr.'s sudden obesity, apparently brought on by the depression caused around the dissolution of his family when Cleveland and Loretta divorced. Though [[spoiler: a later episode (possibly) revealed the obese Jr. is a secret agent who murdered the original and took his place to enact a complex sting operation on Cleveland's neighbor, Tim the Bear, supposedly a ruthless terrorist leader]]. In one particular episode, Cleveland starts wearing a man girdle to trick Donna into thinking he's lost weight, using it as an excuse to gorge himself. By the end of the episode, he's gained so much weight he finally bursts out of the girdle looking much fatter than usual.

** When put under the test of whose parenting skills are superior, Francine is allowed to raise Steve exclusively while Stan raises a clone called Steve-arino. Francine's HandsOffParenting for the sake of giving Steve space to learn from his mistakes turns him into a slovenly fat brat with bad hygiene. Naturally, Steve's extra chub makes it harder for him to get away from Steve-arino when [[spoiler: Steve-arino turns out to be a cat torturing sociopath planning to murder Steve for emergency body parts.]]
** While working as a newscaster in ''Anchorfran'', Francine's celebrity status gets her free meals whenever she wants at a Mexican restaurant. Stan starts exploiting this and puts on a lot of weight from constantly gorging himself on free food, even admitting he's been treating himself to 16 burritos a day. Stan remains fat for the rest of the episode, and while no one has any visible problem with this, Stan mentions all that spicy food [[spoiler: made his colon fall out, which he is apparently holding in place with ''duct tape'']]. He's later seen shoving a sheet cake into his face and eating it like a dog.

These (usually female) characters are obsessed with dieting in order to reach the ideal; commenting on their figure is often [[BerserkButton a sensitive point]] for them. However, not all characters with WeightWoe are overweight; many are just HollywoodPudgy, and some are even told in-verse that they don't need to diet at all.

In fiction, however, {{Very Special Episode}}s notwithstanding, WeightWoe is usually PlayedForLaughs, most likely because of its sensitive nature and prevalence in real life. The control aspect is often ignored, and the cause of WeightWoe is almost always solely to do with a character's physical appearance, whether the issue is genuine or perceived.

Unfortunately, many people do have a WeightWoe in real life and are anorexic and/or bulimic as a result. If you're one of these people, please, please, ''please'', '''see a doctor'''.

* 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.

* Half of [[{{Metalocalypse}} Dethklok's]] band members have body image issues. Pickles and Skwisgaar are both rather slender and Toki's absolutely ''ripped'' under his clothes, but Nathan and Murderface are on the heavy side. Nathan is a FormerlyFit example but is seen as a BigBeautifulMan due to the fact that he's more heavy than fat, while Murderface is out of shape and unattractive. Although in a later season episode, Nathan becomes increasingly concerned with his weight after accidentally breaking the hot tub by jumping into it, and being labeled unattractive on a recent news editorial.
