Fat Bastard: Live-Action Films
  • Just in case anyone missed it in the opening paragraphs, Fat Bastard from the Austin Powers films is the Trope Namer. He is an ill-tempered Scot who weighs a metric ton and Eats Babies.
  • Anyone and everyone played by Sidney Greenstreet, though they usually softened the blow by being Affably Evil. The most famous is Kasper Gutman (no, really) in The Maltese Falcon.
    • Bonus points as Gutman is called "The Fat Man" by the characters.
  • Most of the characters played by Laird Cregar, perhaps most memorably the prissy chocoholic villain Willard Gates in This Gun for Hire.
  • Jabba the Hutt of Star Wars fame. Yes, he's an alien, but he was originally supposed to just be a fat hairy alien before Lucas's budget got boosted for the two sequels.
  • The cruel and corrupt Porky from the Porky's series of movies.
  • Rasputia from Norbit.
  • Papa Klump from the new The Nutty Professor films probably counts, if only for being stinky.
  • Bluto from Animal House.
  • Zigzagged with Jelly, Paul Vitti's right-hand man in Analyze This. He is fat (likely how he got his name), he is a mobster (and he has killed a few people in his career), but he's more of a Noble Demon.
  • George from Mean Creek played by Josh Peck.
  • Blade - Pearl, the morbidly obese blob of a vampire record keeper. The only record keeping he keeps is his mouth! Might have been the basis for Balthazar in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
  • Overdrawn at the Memory Bank had "really, REALLY big brother". Can someone please turn off the revolving fat man?
  • The Commitments about an Irish R&B group has lead singer Deco an obnoxious and egomaniacal lout.
  • Mr. Creosote from Monty Python's The Meaning of Life. He is unquestionably fat, and also rather rude to the restaurant staff. If going out of your way to puke on them isn't poor etiquette...
  • The annoyed toy store clerk in Elf.
  • Balls of Fury's main protagonist.
  • Serial killer "Crazy Fat" Ethel Janowski from the Criminally Insane duology.
  • Gorge in Gamer.
  • Cross-dressing John Waters star Divine, playing a man, was always unsympathetic and unlikeable. As a woman, at least "she" was the protagonist (extended to non-Waters movies like Trouble in Mind and Rustlers Rhapsody.)
  • Max in The Score.
  • The Great Goblin in the film adaptation of The Hobbit.
  • The dead-o Pulaski, a.k.a. "Fat Elvis" from R.I.P.D.. Applies to a few others, as well.
