Governor Ratcliffe follows this trope to a perfect T. He's a racist, xenophobic, greedy, insecure asshole who completely abuses his power and bullies his underlings, using his friendship with King James to avoid any form of consequence.
Played with. After centuries of living in a low-gravity environment, being waited on hand and foot by robots, and near-constant bombardment by Buy n Large's consumer culture run rampant, every human aboard the Axiom is fat, slothful (both physically and mentally), and almost helpless... until the title character shows up and shakes up the status quo. And being fat and almost completely out of shape doesn't stop the Captain from stopping the rogue autopilot from taking over the ship and making sure the Axiom gets back to Earth. Nor does it stop the rest of them from rebuilding civilization on Earth, which, as depicted during the end credits, results in them becoming fitter and stronger.
