    Gag Boobs can be any size as long as they're used for gags. Are you sure you mean that, and not simply big boobs?

    • Menage A 3 has Gag Boobs-equipped DiDi and small-breasted Zii as roommates. This is played for maximum laughs in the first chapter.

    ^^ Given this is played for gags...

    • Bleach has Orihime (and even more so Matsumoto) and Rukia.

    FWIW, I find the title a bit confusing--I expected this to be about characters who are both fat and flat-chested!

    Oh, but for a classic example: Naga the Serpent and Lina Inverse in the Slayers OV As.

    ^^ Well, Breasts are basically made of fat, aren't they? to peccantis I asked recently and was told that Gag Boobs is apparently reserved for the "large ones". However, I still think that it can work with large ones.

    ^ Regardless Gag Boobs is a comedic trope, not a descriptor used to simply point out a character has large breasts.

    Also, guys please make sure the examples are pointing out characters that are often paired together and not cases where a show has a flat chested and busty character

    This sounds like it will often go with Fat And Skinny.

    Also from Bleach there are Orihime (busty) and Tatsuki (flat), who are also best friends. In the Zanpakuto Rebellion filler, there are Haineko (Fat) and Tobiume (slim).

    As an alternate name, how about "A Cup And D Cup"? That at least makes it clear what the trope is about.

    Replace Fat with Busty? cause fat may also refer to a character's build, but this is not the case.

    Stephanie Plum, of the novels by Janet Evanovich, frequently comments on the contrast between her modest bust and the other two women at the bonds office, her partner Lula and Connie the office manager.

    @captainpat - the Tales Of Vesperia example doesn't fit the trope. Judith and Rita share an occasional scene together, but that's about it and they're usually optional. Rita spends the majority of her time with Estelle in the game's main story. While Estelle's boobs are larger than Rita's, they're still small.

    @Ryuuma - Tatsuki isn't flat. According to her, she's a C-cup, which can be seen in certain panels in the manga and clearly in the anime. Not that it matters much, since better than half the female cast can be considered "flat" compared to Orihime. Rukia/Orihime works better.
