Some characters have enough elasticity in their stomach that it is possible to stomp on them like a trampoline. In this trope, a character uses the belly of a fat human or creature to bounce on it like a trampoline. Some do it for a practical use, like reaching a tall place they couldn't reach by themselves, or to save someone falling. Other just do it because it is fun. Whatever the use is, most likely, the person who is being bounced on will probably not be pleased.

As this can be potentially hazardous when applied to reality, no Real Life Examples please.

* Darun Mister from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterEX'' uses this trope as an ''attack''. He has a super called the Super Indra Bash where he curls up backwards and leaps, utilizing his stomach as a springboard to launch his opponents into the air, setting them up for a combo (including a second and third Super Indra Bash if he has enough meter). He also has a normal Indra Bash that's a command throw, and it involves him grabbing his opponent by the arms, falling backwards to pull them on top of him and then bouncing them high into the air with his belly. There's also his [[CombinationAttack Meteor Tag Combo]] with [[DanceBattler Pullum Purna]] ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gcSlEaLg4w as seen here]]), where both Pullum and your opponent bounce off of Darun's midsection until Pullum kicks them down to the ground, where they're caught by Darun in a backbreaker. The only subversion is that Darun is actually in good shape.
