* Another very young example is [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Gideon]] [[EnfanteTerrible Gleeful]]. He's ten years old and his suit is baby blue, but he's chubby, pig-like, has an impressive Southern drawl, is a CorruptHick and a [[TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior villain through and through.]]
* Mr. Fishchoder (who even has a white eyepatch) from ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'', m inus the fat part.

Historical figures who sported the Southern white suit included Creator/MarkTwain and Colonel Harland Sanders[[note]]The founder of KentuckyFriedChicken[[/note]]; but neither of them was particularly fat or particularly villainous (unless, of course, you're asking the chickens, in the latter case). Mark Twain's satires of Southern aristocracy might have been the TropeCodifier here.

** In "Mayored to the Mob", Homer becomes Mayor Quimby's bodyguard, earning his certification from a bodyguard school run by [[https://frinkiac.com/img/S10E09/546545.jpg Leavelle]], who fits this trope.


* Played straight with another John Goodman one: Layton T. Montgomery, the attorney defending the honey industry from Barry's lawsuit in ''WesternAnimation/BeeMovie''. John Goodman seems to like that role.

* Sheriff Bess is this in ''Film/AFaceInTheCrowd''. He doesn't have the white suit on when we see him, but we can assume he ''has'' one.

* A series of commercials for Roomaire (No Sweat!) air conditioners in the mid-1980s used a typical country song playing on midwestern and southern stereotypes this way. "The big fat sheriff was heard to mutter/ If it don't cool off, I'll turn to butter."

** Blake Dexter, the BigBad of ''[[VideoGame/HitmanAbsolution Absolution]]'', is a subversion: he's got the look, the suit, the drawl and the attitude for this trope down to a 'T', except he's actually from South Dakota, which is nowhere near the south. It's obvious from Dexter's appearance that he was originally meant to be Texan, as was his hometown of Hope, but both were changed sometime before release.

* Wrestling/JimCornette, who didn't like working people, or women and at the very least was very unconscious or apathetic to the concerns of black people and often wore a white suit. But he didn't get fat until a fall from a scaffold busted his knees.

** In "The Monkey Suit", during the trial against Lisa and evolution, Ned has an overweight southern lawyer named Wallace Brady (guest-starred by Creator/LarryHagman) at his side. The guy opposes Lisa and greatly supports creationism, calling evolution a load of "Hollywood hooey", not to mention he's not afraid of manipulating the audience at the courtroom with a cute baby deer (Bambi apparently) by claiming evolution is what allowed humans to kill his mother, with the intent of siding people against Lisa. [[AmoralAttorney Brady also sees no problem whatsoever with sending an ''eight years old girl'' straight to jail if it means teaching religion at schools]].
