* Both Mrs. Briefs and Majin Buu in his default "fat" form have this going on in ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. While Mrs. Briefs is a minor character, Majin Buu is a ''very'' dangerous djinn who looks deceptively docile (on the rare occasions he opens his eyes even slightly, it's not pretty). And his fat form isn't the worst he has...
