Beavis: Check it out, Butthead! This chick has three boobs!Any female character with more than two breasts. Term originated (or at least popularised) by The Funday Pawpet Show's Simba, whose character Arthur Bronswager sings the parody song "Total Recallin'" which contains the line "The best part was the girl with three breasts." This is quite common in parts of the Furry Fandom, mainly due to this being Truth in Television for most mammals. It's worth noting that this is almost exclusively done with female breasts—you'll probably never see a male furry with more than two nipples (unless he is a transsexual or intersexual with breasts), even if he's in the same drawing as a female with more than two. If it's a male character with extra equipment, you've got a Triple Nipple.
Butthead: That's pretty cool. How many butts does she have?

- Some versions of the Amazon legend depict these warrior-women as inverting this trope, amputating one breast so it won't get in the way when they draw back a bowstring.

- An occasional motif of followers of Slaanesh, the Chaos God(/dess) of Pleasure in Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40,000. One iteration of the models for the Daemonettes had anywhere from two to six breasts apiece. These were later changed back to more "traditional" styles (which could have zero, one or two breasts, most commonly one), to... mixed reactions. The Greater Daemon "The Keeper of Secrets", however, seems to commonly have six.
- The Broodmothers of Dragon Age: Origins, which used to be women who were corrupted by the taint, display this trope and are completely unclothed. They are far from being arousing, however, as they are bloated, pale, vomit-smeared monstrosities with Combat Tentacles who exist only to produce thousands of darkspawn. The Mother of Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening is only slightly less disgusting, resembling more of a conventional human female.
- But don't try to kiss her if your mouth only opens one way.

- The Vortigaunts in Half-Life, despite being extradimensional aliens, have four nipples. It's never stated whether they're males/females/asexual or even mammals at all though they DO have navels which would mean they're placental; then again, they ARE aliens with a third arm growing out of their chest.
- The Nali from Unreal. While only males appear in-game, there are frescoes of Vandora, the Nali goddess of thunder.
- The bizarre Oocca from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, which look like chickens except for their Uncanny Valley-ish human faces and their multiple sets of breasts (with exposed nipples, no less).

- In El Goonish Shive, Tedd creates programmable magic watches that can transform the wearer into a preset form. Variants of that form can optionally be programmed into it and one of them modifies the form to have four breasts.
- Parodied in Oglaf, of course. Gags that come to mind are "Isle of Tits" (a tribe of merfolk has been stealing shipments of breasts because their women don't naturally have any), "Gussy Up!" (a cosmetic sorcerer is trying to sell stick-on breasts that may or may not be parasitic abominations), and "Plenty" (a girl who has modified her body for extra breasts gets busy with a guy who has modified his for extra penises).
- Yoki and this is justified because she is actually they, a set of conjoined twins and their bodies didn't completely split nor quite completely fuse, leaving them with four breasts, two arms (one for each of them), and four legs.
