[[folder: Did you know humans frown on weight variances? If you want to upset a human, just tell them their weight variance is above or below the norm. ]]
-->-- '''[=GLaDOS=]''', ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}''

Sometimes, insults are very [[FloweryInsults clever]], [[StealthInsult devious]] and witty.

Other times, it's easier (no matter how {{lame|Comeback}} it is) to attack a person's insecurities. And everyone has body issues. So simply calling someone "fat" is usually enough to reduce them to tears, or at least make them double-check the mirror. Or the opposite can happen, and it causes the recipient of the insult [[BerserkButton to get angry]] and even carry out [[DisproportionateRetribution an act of physical violence against the insulter]].

Usually used to show the pettiness of the insulter; if the person they're criticising is in fact rather thin, it comes off as desperate, and if they ''are'' a bit overweight, it just seems cruel. The person's reaction to the insult can say something, too. Ignoring the insult or replying with something a great deal wittier just shows how unimpressed they are, while taking it to heart can show the insultee's vanity or lack-of-confidence. Can become an InsultBackfire if they are FatAndProud. {{Acrofatic}} characters are rarely on the receiving end of this.



[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* The cast of ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' (but mostly England) will occasionally aim this insult at America. Although America takes BigEater to comical extremes, he has actually been shown several times to be abnormally fit due to how much he exercises. Unfortunately, this causes him to gain ''muscle'' mass, which he is convinced is actually fat.
* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': Ranma often insults Akane by calling her "thick-waisted," "overweight," or some other variation of the word "fat." Considering that she's insecure, it's a pretty bad insult, along with "uncute." Played for laughs when Ranma's mirror clone tells Akane that Ranma likes her.
-->'''Akane:''' Wha- No way! Ranma and I are [[JustFriends just friends]].\\
'''Ranma's mirror clone:''' ''No!'' I know that he... he... really likes fat people! [[ScrewYourself If only I was fat too!]]
* This is a RunningGag (though in a less direct way than most examples) with Lucy in ''Manga/FairyTail'' even though [[HollywoodPudgy she is not fat at all]]. Every time someone carries her, they feel a need to complain that she's heavy. The first example is when Natsu and Happy is at a restaurant. They discuss how they should save the greasy food for her, since she looks like she has eaten a lot of fatty and greasy food through her life ([[ImStandingRightHere in her earshot]]).
* ''Manga/SailorMoon'': Usagi is often insulted as such, given her BigEater tendencies. (This is [[DubText played up far more in the dub]]). Also ''very'' much an InformedFlaw; many in RealLife only ''wish'' [[HollywoodHomely they were as fat as she is]].
* ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'': Vados, attendant of Champa, keeps telling her boss that he's overweight, drinks too many sugary beverages, needs to exercise, etc. The reason she can get away with insulting the God of Destruction is because, just like her twin brother Whis and ''his'' boss Beerus, she's stronger than Champa.
* In ''Anime/YuriOnIce'', Yurio tends to resort to this kind of insult when confronting main character Yuri, often calling him fat, a pig, [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs or a fat pig]]. Though Yuri [[WeightWoe does gain weight easily]], he manages to get back in shape by Episode 2, so the insults don't really affect him and he just shrugs them off. It shows how petty and immature Yurio is being, especially when he continues with the insults long afterwards.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ComicBook/MsMarvel is a frequent target of this, thanks to RunningGag, [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments even Dr. Doom took turns at calling her fat]], even though she... [[InformedFlaw isn't fat. Like, not at all.]]
* Volcania, girlfriend of Molecule Man, has been drawn slightly overweight. The Enchantress often refers to her as bloated.
* In ''ComicBook/ScottPilgrim'' Knives Chau is known to call Ramona Flowers fat after she discovers Scott has left her for Ramona. Ramona is curvier than Knives but it's more that Knives is quite thin than Ramona being particularly fat.
* Being a victim of bullies who made jokes like this (among other insults) when he was a kid was the biggest cause of the Penguin's StartOfDarkness in Franchise/{{Batman}} continuity. Of course, when he became a dangerous criminal with influence and wealth, people who insulted him tended to be killed or worse.
* In numerous ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'' stories, Obelix is accused of this. His reaction varies from [[BreakTheCutie bitter sadness]], [[BerserkButton launching into a frightening rage]], or even [[ImplausibleDeniability outright denying the fact]].
* When Polaris declines his offer of partnership in ''ComicBook/UltimateXMen'', Magneto's response is to call her "an overweight harlot." She's not known to be his daughter or relative in this universe.
** Subverted in that Polaris goes through an anorexic phase in ''ComicBook/X-Factor''.
* In ''ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan'', this was Peter Parker's entire repertoire against Wilson Fisk. Which works perfectly in punching through the Kingpin's usually suave, controlled manner.
-->'''Spider-Man''': I really wanted to remember to tell you these things because they are really important to me. ''[pulls out big stack of palm-cards]''. You are so fat, that when you cut yourself shaving, marshmallow fluff comes out. You are so fat...
** In reality (as Spidey knows all too well), Fisk is a mass of ''muscle'', and can put up a decent hand-to-hand fight against him. He's been known to injure the hero just by being too tough to hit. Fisk's rage at the insult is caused more by Spidey's persistence and disrespect than by any (nonexistent) body-image issues.
* Although she's about the same size physically as her fellow Smurfs, Smurfette prior to her extreme makeover in ''ComicBook/TheSmurfs'' comic book version of "The Smurfette" was the target of some fat jokes, including having a fun-house mirror installed that made her think that she turned fat. This eventually led to her DrivenToSuicide moment and the makeover that Papa Smurf gave her in the story.
* In ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}'', Rorschach tells his prison psychiatrist flat-out that he doesn't like him. When asked why, he says, "Fat. Wealthy. Think you understand pain."

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'':
** Garfield is a frequent target of this, particularly from [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Garfield_scale_3_8471.png a talking set of scales]].
** Ironically, Jim Davis [[DudeNotFunny got a lot of angry mail]] after a two-week series of strips featuring [[BigFun Bertha]], one of Jon's weird dates who was overweight. (Even though the negativity directed towards her was rather sparse, and limited to Garfield.) [[WordOfGod As he said later in a retrospective]], it's clearly more acceptable to make fun of a fat cat.
* In ''ComicStrip/{{Shoe}}'' (a strip in which all the characters are birds), the Perfessor is called fat once, and retorts, "I'm not fat. I'm ''fluffy."''
* One of the later ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'' strips had Snoopy in the hospital and his three brothers Spike, Andy, and Olaf visit him. While in the waiting room, Andy asked why they don't look alike, seeing as "I'm so furry, Spike is so thin, and Olaf is so fat?" Olaf denied being fat, saying "I'm rolly-polly!"
** Several early strips had Lucy resort to this kind of comeback after being bested by Charlie Brown.
--->'''Charlie Brown:''' Ha! You were wrong! This book proves you were wrong! You said a cantaloupe was an animal! Well, it's not! It's a melon! You were wrong!\\
'''Lucy:''' You're getting fat, Charlie Brown!

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* In ''FanFic/BetterLivingThroughScienceAndPonies'', after [=GLaDOS=] tries this on Celestia, she gets it turned back on her. Apparently, [=GLaDOS=] can dish it out, but she can't take it. Amusingly, it seems to stick because [[spoiler:when she pulls out her new WingedUnicorn battle body, Chell thinks it looks almost anorexic for a pony.]]
* This is the ''entire shtick'' of [[http://troll-raipony.tumblr.com/ Troll-Rai's]] Blog/AskAPony blog.
* Speaking of Ask a Pony, in ''Blog/AskKingSombra'', Drizzle gets a ton of comments about how she used to be fat. [[http://40.media.tumblr.com/1811e634d1007ceb015dbcb18d88cd25/tumblr_n32qpsg32R1rj4ht7o9_1280.png No really, like a lot.]]
* ''WebVideo/SailorMoonAbridged'' makes BigEater Serena/Sailor Moon a frequent target of this.
* A ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' fanfic has James making fun of Jessie's hair, saying it goes into her head like a Barbie doll's. When she asks if he's calling her a Barbie doll, he replies "No, Barbie dolls are skinny", and Jessie runs off in tears, saying that he doubts her perfection.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* In Disney's ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'', "Gettin' kinda chubby" is one of Mother Gothel's "teasing" insults directed at undermining Rapunzel's self-confidence. (Made more ridiculous because Rapunzel is skinnier than Gothel, and they're ''both'' ridiculously thin.) Could be a case of FridgeBrilliance, a nod to the original fairy tale where Rapunzel starts to put on weight because she's pregnant from the Prince that's been visiting her.
* In ''WesternAnimation/SausageParty'', bags of chips represent fat people.
* In ''Animation/ElArca'', the lioness Bruma decides to go on a tirade against the heroine lioness Kairel, saying that since Kairel is about to die a horrible death by drowning, there's a few things she wants to let her know first-she goes off saying many extremely rude things, and ends with the line- "And, in case you don't know what a mirror is... [[PunctuatedForEmphasis You. Are. Fat.]]"

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/{{Hairspray}}'': When Tracy is being interviewed for a spot on the Corny Collins dance show, Amber tries to derail her by calling her fat. It backfires by getting her suspended from the show - Tracy is too comfortable with herself to be fazed and handles the interview with charm and grace.
* ''Film/{{Pitch Perfect}}'': Fat Amy. The name says it all.
* ''Film/TheInventionOfLying'': Mark gets this, by everyone, pretty much the whole film.
* Almost everyone in ''Film/LoveActually'' comments on poor [[HollywoodPudgy Natalie's]] weight. Much to the confusion of the Prime Minister who, presumably like the audience, can see that [[HollywoodPudgy she's not fat at all]].
* In ''{{Film/The Interview}}'', Americans as a whole are the butt of fat jokes from North Korea. [[HypocriticalHumor In vice-versa, Kim Jong-un himself is mocked by Skylark for eating a luxurious way to obesity]].
* Knives calls Ramona a "fatass" in ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'', mostly out of jealousy and anger.
* In ''Film/TheProducers'' during their climactic argument, Leo becomes so flustered and angry at Max that all he can think is to scream '''"FAAAAAAT! FAAAAAAAAT!"'''
-->"[[LameComeback I'm not that fat...]]"
* In ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly'', Tuco taunts Corporal Wallace, an overweight - and rather sadistic - TortureTechnician, by saying he likes fat people, because when he knocks them down it's funny seeing them try to get up.
* In ''Film/LordOfTheRingsTheTwoTowers'' Gollum, who's freaking out over Sam cooking the rabbit he caught for their dinner, calls Sam a "stupid, fat Hobbit." Tellingly, Sam seems to ignore the stupid part, but when Gollum calls him fat, Sam shoots him and angry/hurt look.
* In ''Film/GetSmart'' Steve Carrell makes several references to his recent and substantial weight loss. During a nightmare where he's binge eating cake he wakes up suddenly and simply screams out "I'm fat!"

* A man bought his wife a talking scale. She set it up and stepped onto it - it said "One at a time, please."
* Tim Hawkins lists this by implication as one of the "Things You Don't Say to Your Wife", given that one of the "things" is "Happy anniversary; I bought you a treadmill."

* Mary Anne from ''Literature/TheBabySittersClub'', showing off her BitchInSheepsClothing tendencies, drops this on ''Dawn'' of all people, during the period of adjustment after the two became stepsisters.
* In one of the ''[[Literature/TheIncredibleWorldsOfWallyMcDoogle Wally McDoogle]]'' books by Bill Myers, when Wally and Wall Street swap places for a week, he discovers that the slim-to-average Wall Street is constantly dieting because the boys tease her about her weight. When he protests that Wall Street isn't fat and that the boys tease all the girls that way, the other girls inform him that they're ''all'' constantly dieting.
* In ''Literature/AndAnotherThing'', Zaphod being reminded that Wowbagger called him a fat-ass is a RunningGag.
* In ''[[Literature/TheColSecTrilogy Exiles of ColSec]]'', Cord (who's stocky and baby-faced but trim) is on the receiving end of quite a few of these, most of them from the book's main antagonist. This is lampshaded at the beginning of sequel ''The Caves of Klydor''. And there's an inverted example in threequel ''[=ColSec=] Rebellion''; [[TheGadfly Jeko]] states that [[{{Tsundere}} Heleth]] (also solidly built but trim) "doesn't look [[FormerlyFat as fat as she used to]]." [[IfWeSurviveThis Heleth is displeased]].
* Since Literature/NeroWolfe weighs 'a seventh of a ton', a go-to insult for people who are annoyed with him is to attack his weight. Wolfe is usually one of the '[[InsultBackfire unimpressed]]' versions however, since he's a brilliant detective, he's well aware he's fat, he's quite content being fat and the person shouting at him is usually doing so in a panic because Wolfe has discovered that they're either a murderer or because he's exposed one of their shameful secrets over the course of his investigation.
* The title, several chapters, and the ENTIRE INDEX of Creator/AlFranken's book ''Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot'' consist of fat jokes.
* In ''Discworld/UnseenAcademicals'', Archchancellor Ridcully thinks of "Two-Chairs" as one of the things he could (but isn't going to) call the former Dean, now himself Archchancellor of a different WizardingSchool. His train of thought then lampshades how much of a LameComeback "YouAreFat" is. ("'Archchancellor' was out of the question, 'Dean' too obvious an insult, 'Two-Chairs' ditto with knobs on.")
* In ''Literature/DontCallMeIshmael'', [[TheBully Barry Bagsley]] bullies Bill Kingsley, who really is fat, like this. As a result, Bill's self-confidence is incredibly low. He loses some weight in later books, and even though he is still big he becomes much more confident once he makes some friends.
* This trope sometimes turns up in adaptations of ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' with regards to the first Golden Ticket finder, the repulsive glutton / FatIdiot Augustus Gloop. In the novel and [[Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory 1971 film version]] no one insults him to his face, though they do negatively comment upon his appearance to each other, most famously in the Oompa-Loompa song that follows his being sucked up a pipe to a fudge-preparation room after he falls into the chocolate river he was drinking out of. Other adaptations are more direct.
** In the [[Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory 2005 film]], Augustus has to put up with the Oompa-Loompas' song about him while he's temporarily stuck in the pipe; he's shot off to the fudge room as it ends.
** In the 2010 opera ''Theatre/TheGoldenTicket'', gum-chewing Violet Beauregarde is obsessed with being thin (she ''chews'' to substitute for ''eating'') and constantly teases FatAndProud Augustus: "Dear boy, you're just fat! It's disgusting!/You're SOOOOO fat!" She even comments, with regards to his fate, "He deserves it. He was fat!" (This makes her own comeuppance -- a transformation into a giant blueberry -- a touch more poetic than in other versions.)
** In [[Theatre/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory the 2013 stage musical]], Willy Wonka manages to make a LastSecondWordSwap ("Goodness, you look so faaaa...ntastically healthy.") upon formally greeting Augustus, but lets slip a StealthInsult afterward: "To lead our group, Augustus Gloop!/For who could lose sight of him?" Later, as in the 2005 film, Augustus is forced to listen to the Oompa-Loompa song sending him off as he struggles in the pipe.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** The pilot episode: after nine years of not seeing his lifelong friend, the first thing Robert says to Ned is... "You got fat." Ned doesn't say a word, but nods his head in such a way that implies "you got fatter" -- then they laugh.
** Later on, Ned and Catelyn discuss Robert's girth in private.
--->'''Ned:''' How did he get so ''fat''?\\
'''Catelyn:''' He only stops eating when it's time for a drink.
* ''Series/HappyEndings'': This is the go-to insult used against Max, whose body is basically just average. Examples include 'like if Paul Rudd gave up', a wo man he was pretending to be straight for telling him 'you have my mother's body', 'pear-shaped', and having a 'soft interior with a soft exterior.'
* One of the many running gags in ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' was cracks about Uncle Phil, played by (ex-navy, poet, badass) James Avery. These would usually come from Will, Geoffrey or Jazz, who really make a KarmaHoudini out of themselves, as they're often in no position to snark at them, thanks to his HaHaHaNo response. Fortunately, he's humble enough to take it in stride. Others, such as close friends (including Geoffrey) or coworkers also get passes.
-->'''Philip Banks:''' It's so good to see you, Judge!\\
'''[[BrokenPedestal Judge Robertson:]]''' It's so ''easy'' to see you, Philip!
** And Carlton constantly referring to him as "Big Guy" in a chummy manner might be taken to be an affectionate dig at his weight also.
** This is actually called out in an episode, where Geoffrey makes an uncreative crack and Philip complains that he should get better, more creative material.
* In an episode of ''Series/TheKingOfQueens'' when another driver explains to Doug he used to be fat as well he claims in school the other kids used to call him [[Music/CultureClub "Boy Gorge"]] Doug said he would have killed for a nickname like that as they used to call him "The Fat Kid" he replied that it must not have been a very creative class.
* On ''Series/HomeImprovement'', Tim tended to make jokes about how fat Al's mother was on his show. Ironically, when she died, Tim made a [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming touching eulogy]] at her funeral, where he claimed that she was actually a big fan of the show and thought the fat jokes were ActuallyPrettyFunny. (Likely why Al wasn't more offended than he usually was by Tim's jokes.)
** Tim's own mother-in-law used to be a big gal herself, and was the butt of some fat jokes before she slimmed down.
* Al Bundy tends to insult fat people a lot (women especially) on ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'', especially his ''incredibly'' obese mother in law who [[TheGhost is never seen]]. Of course, not all of the women he insults are completely innocent;[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVg5QqJoxuU they tend to insult ''him'' a lot too and give him a ''huge'' headache whenever he deals with them.]]
* This trope's use in ''Series/GrowingPains'' became infamous when the jokes were directed at Carol Seaver, played by real-life former anorexic Tracey Gold, which contributed to the actress' nearly fatal relapse.
* Sweet Dee's insult to Mac in ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' when she tells him to get in the car.
** She also pulled this on Dennis after he insulted her one too many times, resulting in him fasting for so long he actually passed out from hunger.
* Elliot's mother tended to do this to her daughter a lot in ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'', despite jokes from Dr. Cox and Jordan about Elliot actually being underweight.
* It was a RunningGag on ''Series/YouCantDoThatOnTelevision'' that Christine and Lisa were called fat (despite the obvious fact that neither of them really was. This is arguably ''why'' the joke was funny, since it would have just felt mean after a while if either of them actually had a significant weight problem).
* In one episode of ''Series/PowerRangersTurbo'', Kat won the lead role in the school play, prompting a snobbish girl who had wanted the part to subtly suggest she was gaining weight (an obvious exaggeration), leaving Kat rather doubtful about her appearance. Naturally, this led [[BigBad Divatox]], with her [[EvilHasABadSenseOfHumor sick sense of humor]], to lay an ambush for her using a MonsterOfTheWeek who could make her ''lighter than air''.
* Sawyer on ''Series/{{LOST}}'' has insulting nicknames for everybody, and pretty much all of the ones he has for Hurley poke fun at his weight. Jabba, Pork Pie, Stay-Puft, International House of Pancakes, Snuffy, Jumbotron...
* On ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'', Lucille constantly makes comments implying that Lindsay needs to watch her weight, and flashbacks show that she's been doing this since Lindsay was a kid. Lindsay Bluth is played by Creator/PortiaDeRossi, who, after the first cancellation, revealed her struggle with anorexia. Ouch, talk about HarsherInHindsight.
* In the first season or two of ''Less Than Kind'', every time Josh and Sheldon have an argument, Josh's last word is, "You're ''so fat''!" In one episode, he goes back to an agent he left when he moved to L.A. and is told, among other things, that he needs to lose five pounds, which causes him to panic, obviously due to a secret fear of ending up as fat as his brother. At the end of the episode the agent reveals he has no intention of taking him back and has just been jerking him around as punishment for the way he left in the first place, and when [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Josh offers to lose ten pounds instead]], the agent incredulously tells him, "You're not fat, you idiot!" Left alone to chew over this information, Josh reacts by jumping around ecstatically, yelling, "I'm not fat!"
* On ''Series/CurbYourEnthusiasm'', Susie's standard insult to her husband is "you fat fuck," just as Larry is a "bald four-eyed fuck."
* ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'': In one episode, London opens her own boutique. Two ladies walk in and she protests when one of them looks at a skinny dress, telling her, "Those dresses are meant for women with an hourglass figure. You're shaped like a pumpkin." She then turns to the other woman and says, "And you're more like a butternut squash." before they both storm out.
* ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack'': After Boo delivers a TheReasonYouSuck speech to Tricia, all Tricia can counter with is "Yeah, well you're fat!" Boo turns around, says "Oo, you got me!", rolls her eyes, and walks away.
* ''Series/TheHoneymooners''. It'd probably be quicker to list the times [[UglyGuyHotWife Alice]] ''didn't'' call [[BigFun Ralph]] fat while they were arguing.
* ''Series/TheGoodPlace'': A FauxAffablyEvil version. A demon asks an angel if she's pregnant; she points out he knows that's not possible, so he's obviously just implying she's fat.


[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* Wrestling/{{Raven}} hates [[Wrestling/TommyDreamer Fatty Dreamer]].
* Wrestling/CMPunk doesn't understand why so many pregnant women attend IWA Mid-South shows. What's that, you're not pregnant? [[CheapHeat He's so sorry!]]
* WWE's 2002 HollywoodPudgy storyline, involving just about everyone in the company (especially Wrestling/TrishStratus and Wrestling/JerryLawler) ridiculing Wrestling/MollyHolly for being a "fat-ass". Molly has repeatedly said she got very upset and depressed during the angle, and has said its creator, WWE's then-new head of creative, Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon, refused to stop the angle when Molly complained about how hurtful it was.
* Wrestling/TeamLayCool and "[[Wrestling/MickieJames Piggie James]]".
** Inverted with "[[Wrestling/MariaKanellis Maria The Underfed Redhead]]".
* While Brazo De Plata has been stocky for most of his career, fan started calling him Super Porky when his waistline really started to expand while working for Wrestling/{{CMLL}}. Rather than be insulted, he thought it was funny and officially adopted as a ring name and in turn the fans came to love him for being [[BigFun such a good sport]].
* After Wrestling/TorrieWilson’s ''Magainze/{{Playboy}}'' spread, ''Wrestling/{{Sable}}'' mocked her (non-existent) fat as a way of daring her to come to her Invitational Bikini Contest. (Naturally, [[LuredIntoATrap it was a trap]], and Torrie fell for it, showing up only to be beaten up by the other two contestants.)
* At ''Wrestling/{{R|ingOfHonor}}OH Fifth Year Festival Finale'', Wrestling/ColtCabana blinded [[Wrestling/HunterJohnston Delirious]] and directed him against senior referee Todd Sinclair. Delirious figured out the switch when he felt how fat Sinclair was.
* Wrestling/ScottSteiner made numerous references to Wrestling/SamoaJoe being fat during their tenure in TNA.
** Joe hasn't been the only victim of Steiner's dislike of fat people. When Steiner was TNA's ring announcer for one night, he billed [[Wrestling/TheDudleyBoys Team 3D]] from Dunkin' Donuts, in the great state of Obesity.
* While wrestling for REINA, Luscious Latasha climbed the turnbuckle only for Sakura Hirota to roll to the other side of the ring. When Latasha hopped off, it being too far, Hirota started teetering as if she had been in an earthquake. It took Latasha a second before it sank in.
* When "Immortal" took control of Wrestling/{{TNA}}, Wrestling/EricBischoff went on twitter to announced that anyone who didn't like it was fat.
* At All Pro Wrestling's 2011 Pensacola Florida Benefit Show, DJ Pringle called The Panther disgustingly obese even though [[HypocriticalHumor he was equally as rotund]].
* Smith "Big Game" James got chants of "You Are Fat" at in Wrestling/{{N|ationalWrestlingAlliance}}WA New York and New Jersey, even against opponents the same size as him.
* Mari Appache was subject of these insults during her 2011 Wrestling/{{AAA}} dates when Sexy Star's [[LegionOfDoom La Sociedad]] ties allowed her to recruit Wrestling/TheBeautifulPeople and Wrestling/MickieJames against her and sister Fabi, until they got Star without her foreign help.
* Wrestling/MattHardy got ridiculed about his weight by the Wrestling/{{R|ingOfHonor}}oH[=bots=], especially after Hardy became the center piece of S.C.U.M. whose previously leader was the much fatter Wrestling/KevinSteen.
* Micah Taylor, [[Wrestling/ProWrestlingZero1 Zero 1 United States Champion]] and representative of Underground U, had this much to say about the Great Championship Wrestling roster after he won GCW's Heavyweight title belt too, saying The Equalizer was especially fat.
* Allysin Kay's response when asked to choose between Valkyrie and Team Be Jealous was to tell her Be Jealous partner, Jessicka Havok, that she was a fat f***.
* An insult Trent Barretta threw at Wrestling/ChrisHero in Wrestling/DragonGate, or more accurately, he told Hero to "Eat a salad."

* [[TrashTalk Sledging]] exchange from an Australia vs South Africa UsefulNotes/{{Cricket}} match:
-->'''Shane Warne:''' I've been waiting two years to bowl at you again.\\
'''Daryl Cullinan:''' Looks like you spent most of it eating.
* Another one, from Australia vs Sri Lanka. Shane Warne asks Ian Healy for advice on how to lure Arjuna Ranatunga out of his crease:
-->'''Healy:''' Put a Mars Bar on a good length, that oughta do it.\\
'''Ranatunga:''' It's no good. Boonie (David Boon) will be onto it before I can move.
* And the Greatest Comeback of All Time:
-->'''Glenn [=McGrath=]''' Why are you so fucking fat?\\
'''Eddo Brandes''' Because every time I fuck your wife she gives me a biscuit.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* In ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'', [=GLaDOS=] spends a lot of time mocking Chell's (nonexistent) excess weight, as in the page quote. This is in keeping with [=GLaDOS=]'s generally childish and bratty personality.
** She also does this to the ''robots'' in VideoGame/{{Portal 2}} who serve as player characters in the co-op mode, ATLAS and P-body.[[note]]Who are just this side of genderless. ATLAS is vaguely masculine and has a masculine voice, and P-body is vaguely feminine and has a feminine voice.[[/note]] This was something the developers came up with when they were planning to have the co-op characters be Chell and another woman, but they left it in for humorous effect after they changed the characters to robots to explain how the player characters could [[TheManyDeathsOfYou die so much]].
** According to a [[http://www.giantbomb.com/news/so-heres-something-pretentious-anecdotes-and-thoughts-from-erik-wolpaws-portal-2-discussion-at-the-nyu-game-center/3148/ discussion]], this is based off of writer Erik Wolpaw's experience as a fat kid with a passive-aggressive grandmother.
** Wheatley picks up the fat jokes after [[spoiler:[=GLaDOS=] and Chell return to the new facility]], but he is ''terrible'' at it. However, he manages to do it right later.
--->"Fatty. Fatty-fatty no-parents."\\
"...Just ten pounds of useless dead weight. Soon to be two hundred and ten. Fatty."
*** Amusingly, the bad fat jokes end up annoying [=GLaDOS=] enough for her to outright admit that Chell isn't fat for the sake of trying to make Wheatley feel stupid.
** In one of [=GLaDOS=]'s test chambers, a very early one in ''Portal 2'', she commends Chell. Not on solving the test, but on somehow beating the odds and gaining a few pounds after being in stasis for centuries.
*** Another one has [=GLaDOS=] test the Aerial Faith Plate with Chell. "Oh. Looks like you broke it's maximum weight-bearing capacity. Oh well, I'll just increase it a bit." When the player tries a second time: "Oh. You broke it again. It must not be calibrated to someone of your... generous... ness. I'll add a few zeroes to the maximum weight-bearing capacity, just to be on the safe side." And a third time: "You appear to have defeated the plate's capacity. Well done. Look, I'll just lower the ceiling for you." The interesting thing is, that the Faith Plate shoots Chell the same height no matter what.
** Even her ''offshoot personality cores'' do this. One of the Fact Sphere's "facts" is "You could stand to lose a few pounds."
* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'':
** Many characters are making shots at the enemy Heavy's [[HuskyRusskie husky]] figure.
--->'''The Scout:''' I am ''owning'' you, you fat, bald, fatty fat... Fat fat!\\
'''The Demoman:''' Little too-much caber tossing pie down your own throat, eh chubby?\\
'''The Engineer:''' Gotcha, fatboy!\\
'''The Sniper:''' I just bagged the world's fattest man!\\
'''The Spy:''' What's the matter? ''[[{{Pun}} Fat]]'' got your tongue?
** Heavy ''himself'' does this to someone else in one of the Halloween comics. He asks a trick-or-treater why, when he risks his life for his family on a daily basis for his paycheck, he expects him to spend it on candy. Heavy then proceeds to call the kid presumptuous and fat, causing him to start crying. Heavy [[PetTheDog immediately apologizes]], realizing people call ''him'' fat and he hates it, and gives the kid $7,000 for the trouble.
* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', if a female Warden chooses to leave Bann Vaughn in Howe's dungeon, he calls her a fat whore. Since all the female body models are quite slender and everyone else in-game thinks the Warden's a total babe, it's safe to assume this is just his go-to insult for a woman.
* In the ''Franchise/SpaceQuest'' games, Roger tends to make fat jokes at the expense of his nemesis Sludge Vohaul a lot, calling him names like "Mr. Slime", "Slop", "Porky", and "Old Fatback". The Narrator did it once too in the second game, calling him "His Lardness".
* In ''VideoGame/LegoDimensions'', a [[Series/DoctorWho Cyberman]] offers to turn absolutely anything and everything into a Cyberman/Cybervehicle/Cyberwhatever. Except [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Homer Simpson]], for exactly this reason. He [[JustifiedTrope somehow gives a justification]] for this, since the Cybermen don't stock Cyber-Armour in his size.
* As expected, a few of the insults in ''VideoGame/OhSirTheInsultSimulator'' are about mocking somebody's weight. Nigel H., who was FormerlyFit, has this kind of insult as his weakness.
* In ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma'' C-team tries to use vent hole to reach other teams and Akane (who is the smallest person on team) claims she won't fit leading to this exchange:
-->'''Junpei:''' ''Someone'' likes cake too much.
-->'''Akane:''' Oh, I know! Let's cut off Junpei's arm, then he'll definitely fit.
* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles2'': Unintentional variant. Rex uses his grappling hook to climb up a ledge, them lowers it for Pyra. It quickly becomes apparent that she's too heavy for Rex to pull up; she's very embarrassed, and everyone else facepalms over Rex's lack of tact. Of course Pyra isn't actually fat, but she does have a few inches on Rex and he's a skinny kid, so she definitely weighs quite a bit more than him.
* ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'': In the main storyline of the ''Rise of the Hutt Cartel'' expansion, when a Republic-aligned PlayerCharacter personally meets ArcVillain Toborro the Hutt, they have the option of asking him if he plans on killing them with his breath or rolling over on them.

* ''WebAnimation/InanimateInsanity'': the normally calm and friendly Baseball goes crazy if he gets called fat. He knocked Knife off the ice platform the two were on, for one (to be fair, Knife was trying to knock ''him'' off first, which made Knife call Baseball fat in the first place).
-->'''Knife:''' (''trying to push Baseball'') No fair! Your fatness is too much to handle!\\
'''Baseball:''' (''deep breath'') '''''I'm not fat!''''' (''kicks Knife'')
* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': In Yang and Weiss' clash against Team FNKI, Neon's character establishes herself by childishly insulting the [[MsFanservice very curvy]] Yang's figure.
-->'''Neon:''' I wasn't trying to say you ''should'' go on a diet, [[ByNoIMeanYes I was saying you really]] ''need'' to go on a diet!\\
'''Yang:''' THAT'S IT!\\
'''Neon:''' You're fat!...

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/BugPudding'' [[http://www.bugpudding.com/?p=3742 may have a point]] with this one:
-->'''Archibald:''' Rabbits only know how to dig LITTLE tunnels...
* ''WebComic/DumbingOfAge'': This is one of Ruth's go-to insults whenever she's picking on Billie.
* ''Webcomic/{{Gosu}}'': Despite [[OneManArmy Gang Ryong's]] [[TheGreatestStyle extreme martial arts proficiency]], people still call him out for his 'extra weight'.
** [[MasterSwordsman Soh Jinhong]] exclusively refers to Gang as "fatty".
* ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'': The BrattyHalfPint Västerström children direct this to Tuuri. They regret it, as Tuuri is a case of BewareTheNiceOnes.
* ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'': Penelope and Faye toss this insult back and forth in [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1049 a couple of]] [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1050 strips]]. Faye is HollywoodPudgy[[labelnote:*]]Jeph himself has said that if Faye's overweight at all it's not by much, but she has body issues and she ''is'' less skinny than most of the other female characters[[/labelnote]] and Penelope is downright skinny, but they both take it poorly.

* Podcast/RiffTrax: Michael J. Nelson says in one short, "Ah, fat jokes. Everybody loves fat jokes -- except fat people."
* In ''Website/{{WrestleCrap}}''[='s=] recap of ''[=HardCORE Impact=]'' (Wrestling/{{TNA}}), there were no shortage of jokes aimed at the Wrestling/{{ECW}} wrestlers' fuller figures. When Wrestling/{{Francine}} taped a message to the fans apologizing for staying home with her infant son, Art [[http://www.wrestlecrap.com/inductions/hardcore-justice-the-one-night-stand-wed-all-regret-the-next-morning/ quipped]], "Total cop-out -- a visibly pregnant Simon Diamond wrestled in the opener."
* From the website ''Not Always Friendly'', a sister site of Website/NotAlwaysRight, [[http://notalwaysfriendly.com/no-dressing-up-her-honesty/33842 No, YOU make dress look fat!]].
* The ''WebVideo/SmoshGames'' crew often poke fun at Wes being fat (#[=FatWes=]) due to his [[TheBigGuy size]] and [[SweetTooth love for sweets]]. However, it's pretty clear that Wes is actually buff rather than fat, and Joven had acknowledged that Wes is muscular.
* In ''WebVideo/DragonballZAbridged'', Freeza's response to seeing Guru is "Good Lord, I was led to believe your species survived entirely on water! ''How is he so fat!?''" [[spoiler:This, ironically enough, foreshadows that the drought that got the albino Namekians killed was Guru's doing.]]

* June of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' implied this of Iroh even while he offered her a pretty big payout for a job.
-->'''Iroh:''' Plus we'll pay your weight in gold.\\
'''June:''' Make it ''your'' weight, and you've got a deal.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'':
** Randall is so jealous at how popular T.J. (who's pretty chubby) is, which makes him pull a IJustWantToBeYou mixed with KickTheDog rant to him, which includes this trope.
--->'''Randall:''' Look at you! You're fat, you're ugly, you wear that filthy jacket... but everyone wants to play with you!
** Mikey can be a target of this as well. (Randall's "humor" routine in one episode uses Mikey's weight as the constant punchline.)
** In "The Ratings Game", out of all characters, ''Gretchen'' becomes a target of this trope by a group of tall, skinny fifth or sixth grade girls. What makes it funny was that Gretchen was even skinnier than them!
* In ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'', the Scotsman's wife is ''so'' sensitive about her weight, that when the Master of the Hunt called her fat, she knocked him out, and then demolished his ''entire'' robot army. By herself. Unarmed. (By the way, when Jack made the mistake of saying she was "large", she got angry again, and he fled in fear, likely the ''only'' time he ''ever'' did that. How was she kidnapped in the first place? [[FridgeLogic Who knows?]]) In a later episode (when she wasn't around) the Scotsman made a joke about her weight to Jack, but then quickly added, "But don' tell 'er that, [[CallBack ya know how she is!]]"
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'':
** The other boys say it to [[FatBastard Cartman]] all the time. Sort of petty, but then, pointing out [[TokenEvilTeammate all]] [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain his]] [[ManipulativeBastard other]] [[TheSociopath faults]] doesn't really faze him.
** In "Cartman's Silly Hate Crime 2000", everybody started doing this to [[TheGenericGuy Clyde]], because [[InformedAttribute apparently]] he's the fattest kid after Cartman's taken to juvie. Eventually all the fat insults cause him to yell out in a Cartman-like voice "For the last time I'm not fat Goddamnit!"
--->'''Clyde:''' (''begins sobbing after Cartman shows up'') Oh thank you! Thank you thank you! (''hugs Cartman'')\\
'''Cartman:''' What the hell is wrong with Clyde?
** "Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers" presents a rare case when you sort of cheer for this: [[{{Goth}} Henrietta]] is always nasty and insulting to her mother, who [[StepfordSmiler just sort of smiles and takes it]]. In this episode it finally seems like Henrietta has stopped, which makes her mom very happy. At the very end Henrietta unleashes a new torrent of insults and her mother, after a moment of confusion, snaps "Fatty!" and leaves the room.
** Henrietta also gets it from her brother several times in "Coon vs. Coon and Friends."
--->"...returning home only momentarily to flip off my fat sister!"
** Heidi gets this treatment starting in "Moss Piglets" when Cartman fattens her up with KFC. The fat shaming just makes her more angry when she's already insecure about her weight.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' naturally has quite a few, especially when [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEKZzsOcup0 Patty and Selma interact with Homer]].
-->'''Homer:''' (''sobs'') I'm a bad father!\\
'''Selma:''' You're also fat.\\
'''Homer:''' ''I'm also fat!'' (''sobs more'')
* Hank from ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' once remembered how cruel bullies can be. Cut to a flashback...of him mocking another kid.
-->'''Hank:''' Hey fatty! [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment You're fat!]]
* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies'', during an ImagineSpot, Piggy sits in Scooter's computerized talking chair. It instantly says in a strained voice "You have exceeded the chair's maximum sitting weight!" before collapsing underneath her. Piggy called it a very rude chair.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': The AlphaBitch Pretty frequently criticizes Kaeloo and Eugly for their weight (although [[InformedAttribute Kaeloo really isn't that fat]]).
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': In "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E24MysteryOnTheFriendshipExpress MMMystery on the Friendship Express]]", Pinkie Pie imagines Donut Joe as a ''Film/JamesBond''-esque secret agent. Twilight calls her out on this and even slips in a jab at Joe's bulkiness.
-->'''Twilight:''' Pinkie! There is no laser beam security system! And Joe is not sleek, stealthy Con Mane! He's big, gruff and messy!\\
'''Pony Joe:''' [[ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne HEY!]]
* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'': Mojo Jojo tries to rouse Buttercup from her meditation session in "Makes Zen To Me" by quipping "You look fat in that dress!" She doesn't move an inch.
* Brian Epstein locks WesternAnimation/TheBeatles in their Paris hotel room without their money after declaring them all fat from gorging on French cuisine (episode "Thank You Girl"). When Brian leaves, the boys sneak out to a cooking school and literally sing for their supper.
