[-[[caption-width-right:350:Sick bastard made me [[DonutMessWithACop drop my donut!]]]]-]

Chances are, being fat in fiction means you're a disgusting slob who leaves food crumbs everywhere, kicks your feet up on the table and treat the place like a low-budget buffet, talk while eating, and have food flying out of your (greasy) clothing.

Generally played as AlwaysMale. This character's DistaffCounterpart is "the FatGirl".

Folks like this are usually bad guys, but ''not'' always. If they're on the good guys' side, however, it's almost always a case of GoodIsNotNice. Most guys like this are incompetent and lazy, but not all of them; a few {{Genius Slob}}s and {{Acrofatic}} types may be included.

For more stereotypical behaviors of the obese, compare and contrast FatBastard, FatIdiot, JabbaTableManners and FatSweatySouthernerInAWhiteSuit. Contrast BigBeautifulWoman and BigBeautifulMan, who are fat and attractive in spite (or because) of their girth. Another positive contrast is BigFun, for people who are hefty, yet portrayed as chipper and friendly.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Bucca from ''Manga/AirGear'', though we all know that it's not ''actually'' fat, definitely fits.
* The boy who stalks and forces himself on the attractive young gym teacher in ''{{Peridot}}'' is another example, visibly slavering and being obnoxious because he's too big and overbearing to be stopped.
* Mr. Maurer from ''Manga/{{Monster}}'', albeit not quite how it's usually portrayed. His colleagues complains about his never showering and he tends to smoke and eat quite a bit. However, it's played a bit differently than normal, as he mentions that his family left him because of how he lives, but decides that he'll clean himself up in hopes of getting them to come back. [[spoiler: He gets murdered before he can attempt this.]]
* In ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'', there was Takasu, the obese and [[DirtyCop corrupt warden]] of the detention facility, who had the habit of picking his nose and flicking it at inmates to intimidate them. (One of the few things American fans did ''not'' mind the dub editing out.)

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Harvey Bullock in ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' comics, although just how much of a slob he is [[DependingOnTheWriter depends on the writer]].
* Fat Freddy of ComicBook/TheFabulousFurryFreakBrothers, considerably dimmer and way more slovenly than his two scrawny friends. One of the highlight comics has him in a marijuana-and-hunger-fueled frenzy, bursting into a grocery store, devouring a massive pile of food, and collapsing ecstatically after a huge belch.
* Sam Burke of ''ComicBook/{{Spawn}}'' (current Trope Illustrator): very rotund and notoriously sloppy with his eating.
* ''ComicBook/{{Urbanus}}'': Jef Patat, a DirtyOldMan, living under a bridge. He is obese, filthy and not to be trusted.
* There's an entire culture group of these in the ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' comics, who all ride around on motorized scooters and are essentially just filthy, fat wastes of space.
* TheKingpin is an aversion (he's evil, he's not actually fat and he's not a slob), but at one point it's revealed that he employs one of these as a body double. Said body double lives in a secret apartment inside Kingpins building, and is supplied with all the junk food and cable tv he wants. When forced to go underground to escape Doctor Octopus (during his tenure as the Superior Spiderman), Kingpin kills his double and leaves his body to be burned beyond recognition in a fire, allowing him to fake his death.

[[folder:Film - Animated]]
* A heroic example is Tokita in ''Literature/{{Paprika}}''.

[[folder:Film - Live Action]]
* Dennis Nedry from ''Film/JurassicPark'' (behavior #4, anyway)
* Fat Bastard in the ''Film/AustinPowers'' series: definitely all of them.
* Mr. Creosote in ''Film/MontyPythonsTheMeaningOfLife'': #1-3.
* "Lips" Manlis and his oyster slurping in ''Film/DickTracy'': #1, #3.
* [[Franchise/StarWars Jabba the Hutt]]. Justified, due to Hutt aesthetic standards.
** And, of course, [[Film/{{Spaceballs}} Pizza the Hut]], with toppings falling off and everything.
* The Warlock, Kevin Smith's character from ''Film/LiveFreeOrDieHard'', is definitely #4 (his basement is covered in junk, though some of it is working electronics), with some added insinuations of 1 and 2.
* Lt. Max Eckhart in ''Film/{{Batman}}'' and Detective Arnold Flass in ''Film/BatmanBegins'' (but not in ''ComicBook/BatmanYearOne''). They may have been [[{{Expy}} inspired]] by Harvey Bullock.

* Augustus Gloop of ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' (and its film adaptations) is done in by his drinking straight from the chocolate river, despite being forbidden.
* Igneous Cutwell in the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novel ''Discworld/{{Mort}}'' is a minor example; he's probably not ''that'' fat by wizard standards, but his robes have more stains than mystic symbols and his shop has a half-eaten pizza lying on the chair and the run-off from treacle sandwiches on the desk. As ''[[UniverseCompendium The Discworld Companion]]'' puts it: "He enjoys food, although not to the extent of actually preparing any; he more or less grazes on whatever comes to hand".
* The eponymous character in ''Literature/{{Oblomov}}''.It takes about 150 pages until he leaves his bed, and without his friend Stolz, he might not even have managed that.
* Averted in ''Literature/AConfederacyOfDunces'' as [[FatBastard Ignatius]] bathes regularly, mostly as a chance to [[ADateWithRosiePalms masturbate in private.]]
* Laman Griffin in ''Literature/AngelasAshes''. He is Angela's overweight cousin who forces her to sleep with him, makes Frank empty his piss pot and sloppily eats chips while refusing to share them with any of Angela's kids -- they have to lick the newspaper he throws out because they are so hungry.
* Stockholm police officer Evert Bäckström is the archetypical fat slob in the [[Literature/{{Backstrom}} novels by Lief G.W. Eriksson]]. Among other things he manages to keep a diet going for perhaps three days before lapsing into his previous unhealthy fast-food diet. He is also in the habit of rummaging in his laundry basket for the least nasally offensive underpants.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* Oscar Madison of ''Theatre/TheOddCouple'' is a rather mild example.
* [[FatSweatySouthernerInAWhiteSuit J.D. Hogg]] from ''Series/TheDukesOfHazzard'' exhibits behavior #1, if none of the others.
* Eddie Fitzgerald, protagonist of ''Series/{{Cracker}}'' series is heavily overweight, often disheveled and unkempt and fond of caustic comments. He is also alcoholic and has problems with habitual gambling. [[BunnyEarsLawyer Good thing]] he's also the best [[TheProfiler profiler]] around.
* Most of Fat Guys from ''Pizza'' (especially Jim Smith and Aussie Pub Guy from Beach Pizza)
* Randy from ''Series/MyNameIsEarl''
* ''Series/KeepingUpAppearances'': Onslow is practically summed up by this trope. He is an obese couch potato who sits in front of the TV all day.
* Creator/VanKootenEnDeBie: Dirk, a fat, drunk tramp who is usually seen drinking.
* Doug Heffernan in ''Series/TheKingOfQueens'' teeters dangerously on the brink of being this trope. Wife Carrie has called him out on his compulsive over-eating and slobbish tendencies quite a few times.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The Moon Social Link from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}''.
* Ronald from ''VideoGame/DeadRising''.
* Wario, in both ''VideoGame/WarioLand'' and ''VideoGame/WarioWare''.
* The guards of ''VideoGame/NinthRock'' occasionally find food in their pockets, and [[FatIdiot are dumb enough to eat it]] despite its questionable age.
* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series has Ogrim, a [[GiantMook massive]] form of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] that are as [[DumbMuscle dim-witted as they are strong]]. Ogrim are are among the largest of the lesser Daedra, with heavy set frames and huge bulbous stomachs. They are also universally hostile to mortals.

* Tharqa of ''Webcomic/PennyAndAggie''.
* ''Webcomic/MurryPurryFreshAndFurry''. Making a cameo appearance across a story arc, Princess Aurelina takes this trope so far that she literally has slaves to lift her arms and is constantly convered in food slurry.
** Although rarely shown eating, Cadillac Myspace's poor dental hygiene, ill-fitting clothing and morbid obesity make her fit this trope.
* Lardee from ''Webcomic/MyMilkToof'' is very mess when it comes to eating and doesn't like bathing.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* A rare female parody is WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick. When she came out of her ScheduleSlip, she [[strike:had a pillow stuffed up her shirt]] had a big belly and would have much rather kept drinking beer and eating cheetos than doing reviews.
* Exaggerated with Seamus Osgranov from ''Literature/TailsOfFame''. He farts a lot, doesn't like to shower or brush his teeth, wears messy clothes, and lives in a disheveled, trashy apartment. Seamus is so slobby and lazy that he's perfectly content with ''shitting himself'' instead of merely going to the bathroom.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Control Freak from ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''
* Cyborg and Beast Boy fit this trope to a tee in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo.''
* Harvey Bullock from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''
* In ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited'', Steven Mandragora, the villain from "Double Date" is introduced devouring a plate of oysters, slurping them into his gaping maw and letting the juice trickle down the sides of his mouth. As Black canary would say, "I'm sorry, but ''ew''." Then again, when she actually snaps and punches him she finds it's "like hitting a brick wall." Mandragora is an expy of Tobias Whale, who is himself an expy of TheKingpin.
* ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'''s Bill Dauterive.
* Patrick Star from ''[[WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants [=SpongeBob=] [=SquarePants=]]]''.
* Homer Simpson (eats like a pig and is and gets drunk), Barney Gumble (the town drunk), Comic Book Guy (eats a lot and spends all his time lazing around with his geeky stuff), and Chief Clancy Wiggum (big eater and out of shape) from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''.
* Heffer Wolfe from ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife''
* Harold Berman from ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold''
* Kendra Krinklesac from ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow''
** Cleveland himself qualifies in some episodes. One starts with him literally doing nothing for an entire weekend except sit on the couch in his underwear, drink beer and eat snacks while all the other characters move around him in sped up animation.
* Peter Griffin from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. He always says something inappropriate at the wrong times and will always try to fart anywhere and at anyone. He will also get drunk at any chance he can get.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' Has Hungry Larry. His saliva gets everywhere after he [[spoiler:swallows everyone whole.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' reveals that Larry used to be a fat slob (and proud of it) before getting a new car, a girlfriend and a job. When the titular character causes him to lose of of these things, he has a relapse.
