* 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.

* The incredibly vain Dennis Reynolds on ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' has a very unhealthy relationship with food and with his body, often starving himself to boost his attractiveness. (Even his friends inceredibly selfish friends get concerned when that happens).

** A more subdued version of this trope occurred during "Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes" arc. The majority of the Legion who were still present in the 31st Century after the Justice League of Earth drove them underground were featured with redesigns by artist Gary Frank. In Frank's notes, it's mentioned the Legionnaires were purposefully drawn with a certain amount of gauntness, even in the ones who still looked muscular, in their builds (most noticeable in their faces), a likely indicator that many of them lost weight from lack of sleep and being unable to eat properly while on the run.



** ''Fat Camp'' featured Cartman getting sent to a fat camp against his will. He starts a lucrative business undermining the camp's efforts by smuggling junk food and selling it to the other kids. The rest of the campers, on their part, are all legitimately unhappy with how overweight they are, and their equally overweight parents don't have much hope for them as they believe their obesity is caused by genes. By the end of the episode when the camp is about to be shut down, one of the campers comes forward and admits they were cheating on their diets but wants to stay and make a more earnest attempt to slim down. When it looks like even Cartman has decided to make an effort to diet, the counselors (who were shown as upbeat and genuinely trying to help the kids) decide to have him banned because of what he did. Cartman curses them off... and then starts eating junk food and crying while he does.



* Pam from ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' gets mocked a lot for her weight, and was especially stressed out by it in the first season. By the second season, Pam evolved into a BigBeautifulWoman MemeticBadass who shot back by mocking Cheryl's skinnier frame. However, during the fifth season when ISIS starts smuggling cocaine, Pam gets addicted and ends up losing a lot of weight. For a number of reasons, including that Pam TookALevelInDumbass, everyone says they liked her better before, not after, she got addicted and lost weight. The sixth season reveals she gained back the weight she lost after beating her addiction.

Compare HugeSchoolGirl, a girl who is much taller and more developed than her peers and is insecure about it. Contrast FatAndProud {{Big Beautiful Wom|an}}en/{{Big Beautiful M|an}}en--the former of whom are comfortable with their size and the latter are portrayed as sexy despite or ''because'' they are overweight. Also compare RealWomenHaveCurves, where a higher body fat is portrayed as the ideal. Also contrast ObsessedWithFood, a person who is definitely not trying to lose weight. Also also compare HeightAngst, where a character is self-conscious about their height instead of their width.

weight will very often be obsessed with food itself as well, though it will not seem like it on the surface.

Added DiffLines:

* PlayedForLaughs with [[ChronicHeroSyndrome America]] of ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia''. He's often seen [[BigEater eating copious amounts]] [[FastFoodNation of junk food]], but is shown several times to be self-conscious about his unhealthy eating habits; in one strip he's seen anxiously weighing himself, and seeing that he's gained weight, trying out several diets according to advice he receives from other countries. But according to WordOfGod, he's gaining ''muscle'' rather than fat.

* Subverted in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'' when Harry's {{Jerkass}} cousin Dudley is forced to go on a diet after his school nurse compared his weight to that of a baby whale. The angst came more from Harry than Dudley, since Harry was forced to eat that same diet food Dudley was and his aunt and uncle were already barely feeding him as is. As a matter of fact, Petunia would purposefully give Dudley more to eat than Harry, even if it was food Dudley didn't want. Had it not been for the food Harry was getting from his friends and Mrs. Weasley, he'd have most likely starved to death that summer.

* In ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'', getting called "kinda fat" by a young child is enough for her to pull a ParanoiaGambit on said child and its siblings. To top it off, she is currently employed by the parents of the children in question.
