A Gasshole is a character in a series who is known for being, well, gassy. The humor may focus on the frequency with which this person farts or belches, the magnitude of their emissions, or their shamelessness about it. If they use their, ahem, talent as a form of attack, the trope is Fartillery, and if they meet their match it's Farts on Fire. If this character is fat, they may be a Fat Comic Relief.

A blatant example of Toilet Humour. This can be often a way to show how unrefined a Fat Slob can be (though there's little correlation between weight and gassiness in real life), and an audible sign of Jabba Table Manners.

Although female examples have become common enough that this is no longer an Always Male trope, most examples will be men (see Beauty Is Never Tarnished). Women who are depicted as Gassholes will usually be The Lad-ette, or at least a tomboy; the occasional classy lady (especially the Grande Dame) or girly-girl type who lets out a very unlady-like belch or fart as a comedic gag is an exception.

    Anime & Manga 
  • Gasser/Heppokomaru in Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo. However, this is treated like any other power in the series, and the fact that his attacks are farts is hardly ever addressed after his first major appearance. Then again, given the setting...
  • Cells at Work: Bacteria!: Considering how one setting of this spin-off is the host's intestines, it's not too surprising that she would be portrayed as having some notable digestive issues, such as excessive flatulence.
  • In Eyeshield 21, flatulence is one of the many bad habits of Otawara.
  • Played in a surprisingly serious manner by those affected by The Virus in Gyo.
  • In DNA², a shy and sweet gym practitioner named Kotomi Takanashi has an unusual disorder: she farts when she's nervous. (And in the manga, her farts are epic.) So she tries to solve this by bonding with her friend Junta Momonari aka the main character, an Unlucky Everydude who throws up when he gets aroused.
  • Dragon Ball:
    • Bacterian is a large, smelly, strong yet fat martial artist who fights with disgusting moves. One of the moves he is most remembered for is his "Surprise" move, where he sits on his opponent, farts on them, then rubs his buttocks on them, leaving them to grovel in the horrendous stench. He's beaten by Krillin, who lacks a nose and thus a sense of smell (though he can certainly imagine the stench).
    • Veku, Vegeta's and Goku's failed attempt at merging into Gogeta, can only attack with his flatulence. This, as well as his bouncy fat feature, are the only things that make him useful.
  • Iggy the dog in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is known to cling to the faces of people he doesn't like (nearly everyone) and fart. This turns into Fartillery in the fighting game as he does this as his throw, and he has a super version that looks and acts similar to Akuma's Raging Demon.
  • Himawari!! features Momota, a cute animal sidekick who frequently attacks with his gas. He also at one point uses his backside as a watermelon-seed machine gun.
  • Hiroyuki, Fuusuke's pet penguin, from Ninku, is known for releasing explosive farts, though only in the anime version. In the manga, Toji is this.
  • Sgt. Frog: Tamama has farts vastly more potent then a normal Keronian, which he is quite proud of, and uses them as an attack on a few occasions. He also can use them to increase his swimming speed.
  • GeGeGe no Kitarō has Nezumi-Otoko, whose only real abitilty other than his bad breath and body odor is farting.
  • Switch Girl has Nika Tamiya, who in spite of being one of the most popular and prettiest girls in her school, farts more than any character in the series. In fact she is the sole source of all the fart/gross out humor in the series. Granted, she tries to be a lady about it and goes to extreme lengths to hide it.
  • Kinnikuman from Kinnikuman tends to fart a lot. He can even fly with them. His son Kinnikuman Mantaro from Ultimate Muscle also has powerful farts.
  • Kemono No Souja Erin has John, Erin's foster father and a beekeeper with a habit of farting in public. Strangely enough this is only in the anime. In the Novel and the manga he doesn't do this at all.
  • Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai has Kate Takayama, a 16 year old nun with really poor manners. She tends to burp and fart in front of people with little to no shame about it.
  • Hajime no Ippo has Takamura, the local champion of the boxing gym and older brother-figure to its junior inhabitants. Although rare, he will fart occasionally, usually with little to no care of anyone else around him. He also jokes around with Manebu's father. One of their favorites is pronouncing Manebu's name "Mane-" and using a fart to say the rest, as "buu" is a Japanese onomatopoeia for fart.
  • Sakigake!! Otokojuku has Toramaru, not only does he fart a lot but they are smelly enough to knock out a killer whale, and when he lights them it creates his signature move the"Daihouhi Kaenhousha" aka the "Big Fart Flamethrower"
  • Gokudo's farts are smelly enough to empty a bar. This later becomes a Chekhov's Skill, when he has to wake his companions from a sleep spell, during other events as well.
  • Kaiketsu Zorori: Ishishi and Noshishi have strong gas, and Zorori uses this when needed, to power machines and spacecraft. That's not to say that Zorori's farts can't power spacecraft too, though.
  • One Piece:
    • Brook, in spite of claiming to be a gentleman, tends to burp and fart in front of people with little shame about it, especially after he eats. Which is saying something considering Brook is a living skeleton.
    • Franky can fill his body with gas from coke and turn it into what can honestly be called one of the most exaggerated farts in anime history. According to Usopp, they smell just as bad as a regular fart.
  • Hare from Monster Rancher. While fart jokes weren't that common in the anime, it's worth noting Hare had a monopoly on them, thanks to his Gas attack. In fact, the move is much stronger in the anime than in the games; in the anime, he's first shown using it in a tournament. Not only does it knock out his opponent, Tiger, but the referee and many of the spectators also pass out from the smell. In addition to the smell, it's also shown to have a lot of force as well. A few episodes later, the hot air balloon the gang is riding in starts to go down. Hare manages to single-handedly bring it back up by using his own hot air.
  • Battle Spirits Saikyo Ginga Ultimate Zero has Mugen, a cute little red dragon with the power to produce explosive farts. Farting is one of Mugen's most defining characteristics. Usually he farts at Triumvirate or anyone he's really mad at or doesn't like to send them blasting off. Sometimes he even uses his farts to attack his opponents in a game. In earlier episodes Mugen would often let out a huge fart when he changed from a red spirit to a white one, and at one point he actually farts fire. Oddly enough his fart jokes come off as more cutesy than gross, as shown here .

    Asian Animation 
  • Dhokla of Simple Samosa has the highest number of burps out of the main characters, doing so at least four times (in "Chutney Dam", "Kheer", a particularly long one in "Dhakkad Race", and "Patang Hurdang"). He also farts at least twice, in "Maa Mooli" in "Kasturi Khushbu".

  • Smiley from Animals United farts quite a few times, most likely as a result from drinking so much "soda" off-screen.
  • Atilla from Atilla and the Great Blue Bean (2007) farts constantly, this is because he eats so many beans a day because they're his favorite food.

  • In one scene from Chicken Little, Runt trips while he, C.L., and the others were running away from the aliens, and belches with each impact.
  • In Hotel Transylvania, the Invisible Man farts while standing right behind the Mummy, leading to frantic denials from the latter.
  • Cholly the chalicothere from Ice Age 2: The Meltdown, whose flatulence was so loud it was mistaken for a mammoth trumpeting.
    Cholly: Sorry. My stomach hates me!
    Sid: P. U.! Well, don't that put the "stink" in "extinction"
  • Judy and Hugh Neutron at the end of the movie, Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. Justified as the soda they drank was Jimmy's Neutronic Burping Soda which is Exactly What It Says on the Tin. [1]
  • Pumbaa the warthog from The Lion King and its spin-off series, Timon & Pumbaa. He is implied to be an outcast due to his flatulence. Nonetheless, this quality is occasionally played for cartoonish comic effect. Pumbaa's flatulence is his VA Ernie Sabella zerberting on his hand (pressing his mouth on his hand and blowing to create the sound).
    Ernie Sabella: I was proud to be the very first Disney character who... actually had gas!
  • Charlie Anna from Roadside Romeo, who passes gas multiple times throughout the film.
  • Aunt Fanny from Robots mistook the other's armpit noises for an actual farting contest. She managed to KILL A STREETLAMP.
    Piper: Aunt Fanny, we were using our arms...
  • Shark Tale: During Frankie's funeral, the elderly leopard shark Don Feinberg tells Don Lino that he has some news. Feinberg farts, and a big green bubble pops under the orca behind him, who faints. Lino then gets up from his chair and decides to talk with Feinberg by the window.
  • Shrek:
    • Plenty of this film series' humor comes from Shrek's bodily functions. During the opening sequence Shrek leaps into a pond, lets out a massive fart, sighs with relief, and tries to feign innocence as a few bubbles rise up behind him — followed by a dead trout! Also, "Better out than in, I always say, eh?".
    • This gem:
      Donkey: Whoo, Shrek, did you do that?! Man you gotta warn somebody before you just crack one off; my mouth was open n' everything!
      Shrek: Believe me, Donkey, if it was me, you'd be dead!
    • And the fairies captured in jars wished they were in the opening sequence of Shrek 2!
  • One of the sailors in Treasure Planet speaks exclusively in farts. After an initial gag it's played seriously.
  • In the Lego DC Super Hero Girls film "Brain Drain", at one point, Supergirl has to inhale a room full of smoke-bomb vapors so the team can pursue Bumblebee. She then makes the mistake of swallowing it. Initially, she seems fine, weakly noting that it wasn't so bad when the others check on her... then she cuts off Batgirl's attempt to lead the girls after Bumblebee with an enormous belch that lasts for 8 continuous seconds, hurling the girls against the walls and pinning them there, blowing around the room's furniture (including the bed) like leaves in a storm, and creating both a burp that can be heard at least across the city and a cloud of cartoon style green belch fumes that is visible from orbit. After the belchstorm dies down, Harley Quinn immediately complains about the smell, asking if Supergirl was eating day-old tuna and goat's cheese in the cafeteria, which Supergirl sheepishly confirms.
  • In Monster Family, Frank the father is this even before he becomes a monster.

    Films — Live-Action

  • Air Buddies: Budderball has a habit of passing gas every time someone pulls his paw.
  • In Amadeus, Mozart ripped a loud one while caricaturing Salieri at the piano.
  • Beethoven's Christmas Adventure includes a scene of Beethoven farting for almost a solid minute.
  • Blazing Saddles. Campfire scene + Cowboys + Pot full of beans = Memorable (and funniest!) Movie Scene in Cinematic History. This also allows for some of the Funniest Closed Captioning in Video History, as little "pffts" pop up all over the screen, theoretically following each fart.
    Cowboy: How 'bout some more beans, Mr. Taggart?
    Mr. Taggart: I'd say you've had ENOUGH!
  • The opening scene from Blue Collar Comedy Tour Rides Again features Bill Engvall going to and using the tour bus's bathroom. Jeff Foxworthy follows, immediately reacts, "Good granny!" and chews out Bill for not saving it for the truck stop. Ron White is next and reacts similarly, but the real punchline comes when Larry the Cable Guy goes in without smelling it at all, proving who the real Gasshole is in the group.note 
    Ron White: He must've worked in a zoo.
    Jeff Foxworthy: I cannot believe he can stay in there!
    Larry: (emerges) Hey, I'm still hungry; there any more a' that Frito pie left?
  • In Last Action Hero, there's a character in the movie-within-a-movie who was apparently known for being flatulent (he's Dead to Begin With). His name was Leo the Fart.
  • This was the defining characteristic of Devlin Bowman, the Big Bad of The Master of Disguise. Not Brent Spiner's finest role. Disturbingly enough, there seems to be an implied aversion of No Dead Body Poops in the ending...
  • The strangely flatulent Sir Bedevere in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Although his gas isn't a common source of humor after that; the funny part is more that that's the only thing he has to distinguish him by, when the other knights are called things like "brave" and "handsome".
  • Terry Gilliam becomes one for a brief moment in his role as Constable (Ex-)Parrot during the "Crunchy Frog" sketch from Monty Python Live (Mostly): One Down, Five to Go. Justified in that he's apparently eaten one of the, um... snacks.
  • The Spleen from Mystery Men was cursed with explosive flatulence after he blamed a fart on an old gypsy woman who was passing by when he was walking in the park with his friends. He now uses his superior farting skills to fight crime. Fo' serious.
  • The 1984 film Night Patrol features among its characters a flatulent midget police captain.
  • Cletus Klump from The Nutty Professor more than counts. Aside from being the one with the privilege of giving us our page quote there, he openly demonstrates his gasshole tendencies on both family dinner scenes in the first movie, resorting to deliberately breaking wind and utterly destroying any tracks of conversation that preceded it. Much to Ernie Junior's vast amusement.
  • The Last King of Scotland has a scene where Nicholas Garrigan (played by James McAvoy) is summoned to see to the health of Idi Amin (Forest Whitaker) who has suddenly fallen ill and believes himself poisoned. Garrigan performs the Heimlich—and promptly gets the business end of a huge gas attack from Amin. Garrigan later advises Amin to never mix beer with aspirin again.
  • Ed, from Shaun of the Dead is a "silent but deadly" variant: "I'll stop doing it when you stop laughing."

  • In Tropic Thunder, Jeff Portnoy (Jack Black) is famous for a series of movies in which he plays an entire family whose humor seems to be entirely fat jokes and lots of flatulence. Likely a parody of Eddie Murphy's latest movies.
  • In Who's Your Caddy?, a big guy in a kilt cuts loose a long fart. He must have really held that one in for a while!

  • A person goes to the doctor complaining that they are unable to stop farting.
    Patient: It's not so bad, though. My farts are always silent and never smell. I've farted dozens of times since I've been in here but you couldn't even tell.
    Doctor: I see... Here, take these pills and come back next week.
    (One Week Later)
    Patient: Doctor, what kind of pills did you give me?! My farts are still silent, but now they smell terrible!
    Doctor: Great! Now that your sinuses have cleared up, let's do something about your hearing!
  • Invoked in this poem, possibly originating in Boston, surprisingly with a Wikipedia page:
    Beans, beans, the musical fruit.
    The more you eat, the more you toot.
    The more you toot, the better you feel.
    So let's eat beans for every meal!
  • Doubles as Moroccan traditional tale: An unlucky man named Akbar in one version (the Morocco version has this to be the local sultan), explodes in a fart in the middle of the market place, loud enough for everyone to hear - as the place is crowded with people. The man is ashamed and goes into hiding, and lives the life of a hermit for several years (varies from ten and up to 30 years at the most), until he thinks it safe to return to his home town, because now people surely have forgotten the incident. Coming into town, and the market square, he spots a new building he has never seen before, and asks a boy when that building was erected. The boy answers accordingly:
    That building was finished 13 years, five months and six days after the fart of Akbar.
  • A man enters a talent show and says he has an amazing act: he can sing and play the trumpet at the same time. The manager is currently overseas, but his deputy says he'll give it a shot. The man pulls out a trumpet on a length of tubing, inserts the tube up his ass, and starts playing (and singing) the national anthem. The duly impressed deputy immediately calls his boss so he can listen in. Then, after the act, when asking for the boss' opinion (a variation involves a female artist, a harmonica, and Country Matters):
    "You call me at 3 in the goddamn morning so I can hear some asshole playing the trumpet!?!"
  • A man who loves to eat beans has a massive pile of the legumes for lunch on his birthday. He suffers an attack of horrible gas, but at that precise moment, his wife shows up at his workplace to take him home for a big surprise. She makes him put on a blindfold as she drives, and he's so afraid of passing gas in front of her that he holds it in for the entire car ride. When they finally get back and she escorts him to the kitchen table, she leaves the room to prepare, and the husband takes this as a cue to finally let go of all that gas. He spends several minutes letting them out, and manages to fully relieve himself by the time his wife returns. She instructs him to take off the blindfold...and he discovers that the entire kitchen is filled with his friends and family for a surprise party.

  • Mulch Diggums from the Artemis Fowl series, or dwarves from that series in general. It's justified because dwarves burrow by eating their way through soil and, to not put too fine a point on it, expelling it out the other end as fast as they swallow it. This means that they can build up a lot of trapped air in their digestive systems, which are also specifically designed to be one-way only. A "back-up", where the trapped air rises back out their mouth, could have fatal consequences.
  • Cats vs. Robots: Giff M.E. Huggs' pug, Dig Doug, farts regularly.
  • Dylan Marvil from The Clique is not shy about burping in public, and even enjoys burping the names of people she knows.
  • Some of the characters in Dinoverse end up as large herbivorous dinosaurs, who pass a great deal of gas as part of their digestive process. Aware that this could happen, Bertram tries just not eating, which doesn't work so well. He does have to eat, and the others are predictably appalled. Later, separated from the group, he decides that since he's too cumbersome and slow to search effectively it's best if he eats a lot and stays in one place, lets nature take its course, and wait for the others to find him.
  • Dirty Bertie: Bertie farts a lot, which is the main plot of "Pooh, Is That You, Bertie?". Whiffer the dog also got his name because he farts a lot.
  • Discworld: Unseen Academicals has Trev's friend (well, for a certain value of friend), Carter the Farter. Or as he later tries to rename himself, Fartmeister. Trev tells him he's not going to get anywhere with either.
  • Older Than Print: Barbariccia in Dante Alighieri's The Divine Comedy.

  • Gangsta Granny: The granny farts a lot and her farts smell like rotten cabbage.
  • Mr. Mulclar, the door repairman from the Garrett, P.I. novels, is an otherwise-nice man who seems oblivious to how his cathedral-clearing flatulence drives people away.
  • The children's book Harvey, the Boy Who Couldn't Fart: Inverted for Harvey, but played straight for his friends who Harvey is jealous of because they are "experts" at farting.
  • Journey to Chaos: Ponix Enaz is not allowed to eat beans in public because he has horrible gas. He does so anyways because he's also The Ditz.

  • Naked Lunch — "Did I ever tell you about the man who taught his asshole to talk?"
  • The titular character of North To Benjamin is an old dog who would fart quite often.
  • Garth the Gross, a minor character from A Song of Ice and Fire. In comparison, Baelor Hightower, one of Elia Martell's suitors back in the day, isn't normally known for this, but apparently one slipped out while he was visiting her in Dorne. Her brother Oberyn immediately dubbed him "Baelor Breakwind" (after Baelor "Breakspear" Targaryen), and the courtship eventually fell through. Then Elia married Prince Rhaegar, and some other stuff happened, and Oberyn still hasn't forgiven himself.
  • Tina, from Tricky Business, suffers from constant flatulence, to the point that people can instantly detect her coming by the smell of her incessant farts, and at one point in the story, when she is about to attack Jock with a knife, she is described as a very tall, very blond, very angry, very farty woman waving a very big and sharp-looking blade.
  • The titular dog from Walter The Farting Dog farts an awful lot, especially after eating.
  • A Sailor of Austria by John Biggins. The crew of a WW1 submarine get food poisoning while hiding on the sea bottom, leading to an attack of particularly foul flatulence that forces them to surface in full daylight to vent the air. By coincidence they do so just as an enemy warship is passing in front of their vessel. After sinking it they return as heroes to be greeted by an army brass band, but unfortunately are still feeling the effects, so have to rush into the nearest bushes to drop their pants, outraging the local commander who assumes he's being deliberately insulted.
  • King Of The Bench: Carlos Dias is one. In fact his burp-talking is actually quite effective at boosting team spirit.
  • Rotten School: Bernie's pet dog, Gassy, named such for obvious reasons.
  • Puck from The Sisters Grimm. Expect him to burp and fart whenever he makes an appearance in each book.
  • The Plant That Ate Dirty Socks:
    • The plants always burp after sucking in a sock. Fluffy also says "Ex" afterward because Norman tried to teach him to say "Excuse me".
    • Book 3 has Dr. Sparks record several plants eating at the same time and send the family a tape of the noises, which is described as sounding like a "symphony of schlurps", followed by "a burp concert". All of them are cracking up by the time it's done.
  • Lourdes, the Cloud Cuckoolander flight attendant cog from Rabbit & Robot farts in every appearance she makes as a result of her hyperenthusiam.

    Live-Action TV 
  • In episode of 1000 Ways to Die, a sority held a challenge to their pledges, whoever could stand the longest time inside a sauna would be allowed to skip Hell Week at the hands of her future sorotiry sisters. One of the pledges decides to better her odds by eating a beans and brocoli for a week, so that her farts will drive out the other girls, which for the most part works as eventually only her and another girl remain, but the last challenger decides to leave in order to escape the stench. A few minutes later, the other girl returns and discovers the gassy girl had died from overheating after staying in the sauna too long.
  • The title character of Bargearse (a Gag Dub of Australian cop show Bluey). His heroics inspire a Licensed Game called Pong, and he commits suicide by farting in his car and then lighting a match.
  • Lester D. Ratt of Beakman's World. Imagine his delight when they finally got to discuss flatulence!
  • Sheldon briefly becomes this in The Big Bang Theory when he tries a diet consisting exclusively of cruciferous vegetables (such as broccoli and Brussels sprouts). In classic Sheldon style he mistakes the resulting digestive distress for cholera until this trope relieves it in a most dramatic offstage moment. The side effects of Leonard's lactose intolerance also get frequent mention on the show.
  • Dick & Dom in da Bungalow had Diddy Dick and Dom, puppets (played by the presenters) who live in a cupboard in Da Bungalow. Theme song:
    We may be really small but we've both got big hearts
    It's all right in here as long as no-one...
    [one of the puppets farts]
  • Doctor Who:
    • "Aliens of London"/"World War Three": The Slitheen. Their plan to destroy Earth involves them killing overweight humans and stealing their skins to use as suits (the people need to be fat for extra room). Unfortunately, because most humans are shorter than the Slitheen, they have to use compression technology to fit inside their stolen bodies, which makes them extremely gassy (the extra material has to go somewhere). That gas proves to be a Fatal Flaw — when the Doctor, Rose, and Harriet Jones, MP are trying to determine where they're from and thus find a weakness, Harriet points out that their farting doesn't smell like regular flatulence; Rose realizes it instead reeks of bad breath. That makes the Doctor realize that they're made of living calcium (the bad breath smell is the element decaying), and in turn determine their homeworld: "RAXACORICOFALLAPATORIUS!" Some liberally applied vinegar is enough to dissolve a Slitheen… with one last massive fart.
    • "Love & Monsters": The Absorbaloff, another alien that's extremely fat and flatulent, turns out to be from the twin planet of Raxacoricofallapatorius — Clom.
    • The natives of Tersurus in the Comic Relief special Doctor Who: The Curse of Fatal Death communicated via controlled flatulence. They all died when one of them discovered fire.
  • Subverted in the episode "Drew Blows His Promotion" of The Drew Carey Show, where Drew shows a safety video he made to his company's Board of Directors which apparently featured him passing gas loudly every few seconds - however, the fart noises were actually added as a birthday prank by one of his friends. Then played straight later when Drew meets with the Board again to explain that the video was a prank, but is struggling not to actually pass gas while he's talking, because he had previously eaten a rotten tofu cake.
  • Beans from Even Stevens. Why do you think they call him "Beans"?

    • Crichton calls a Sheyang scavenger this very name in a season 1 episode.
  • The Fast Show had the character of Bob Fleming, a TV host with a persistent terrible cough. Different sketches introduced his friends with similarly distracting tics, one of whom was a woman who continually belched and farted.
  • The yeast sock puppets on Good Eats; just like real yeast, they do nothing but eat, multiply, and pass lots of gas.
  • Horrible Histories had a musical number where a group of cowboys sing about what the life of a real cowboy was of like. One of them farts a solo because of all the beans they eat.
  • Stephen King's miniseries It features one character in a Gang of Bullies who communicates solely via burping into victim's faces; he is aptly named Belch.

  • Jerry from Parks and Recreation.
  • A villain in Power Rangers Turbo, was called Big Burpa. Let's just say that she lived up to her name.
  • Saturday Night Live:
    • If this sketch has any truth to it, Grace Kelly.
    • Continuously defied in the Bean Café sketch, where Tom Hanks is the proprietor of a café that sells nothing but beans. The entire premise of the sketch is that it neatly avoids every single fart-joke it sets up. As the old rhyme goes "Beans, beans, good for the heart. Beans, beans, great for your heart!"
      Customer: [sniffs] Alright, who did it?
      Owner: What?
      Customer: Who went and made my favorite pie again?

  • Ultraman Taro: No less than three monsters fart in Taro's face as a combat tactic while battling him: the caterpillar-like Kemujira, the living graffiti drawing Gongoros, and the gluttonous dragon-like Motokureron.
  • One episode of Return of Ultraman deals with a subterranean monster named King Maimai whose constant flatulence is so powerful that it causes earthquakes.
  • You Can't Do That on Television has this occur a lot. One particular camp skit features two boys who play this to their advantage. Due to their constant farting, they have the cabin all to themselves...until one big ripper blows the roof off!

  • Da Yoopers have several songs and comedy skits about farts, including an entire album called Songs for Fart Lovers.
  • Big Dick from the Jonathan Coulton song "Big Dick Farts a Polka" for obvious reasons.
  • Red Bovine's song ''The Phantom Windbreaker''
  • Comedy/experimental musician Flatulina, whose only album credits her with "lead flatulence." A sort of Running Gag on the album is that she frequently winds up "holding a note" longer than one would expect. CD copies also include a DVD, featuring interviews and such during which she openly farts without shame while the interviewer attempts to ignore it. It's not the only type of humor in her music (some of the tracks don't feature any farting at all), but it's certainly the most frequent and obvious.
  • MAD released a song "It's a Gas!" with vocals that consisted of loud burps.
  • "Who Farted?" by Australian novelty band The Vaughans.
  • Spike Jones's music routinely featured burps and belches. One of his characters is named Sir Frederick Gas.
  • "The Big One" by Confederate Railroad:
    He cut the big one
    It was a stinker
    Then he broke the silence
    With a snicker
    And us kids started laughin'
    'Til I thought we was all gonna burst
    After daddy cut the big one
    At the Horn Lake Mississippi Missionary Baptist Church

    Pro Wrestling 
  • There was a storyline in early 2012 where WWE Diva Natalya Neidhart suffered from this.
  • Rikishi has done this to Booker T. All that needs to be said is if you find Rikishi farting in the bathroom, stinking it to high heaven, don't stop him. It's his "pre-match ritual", and apparently the only thing stopping him from farting on his victims during the stinkface.

  • Kapura from BIONICLE produced fiery gas-clouds of flatulence, which propelled him forward. This detail was only ever seen in the Mata Nui On-Line Game, and was to be mentioned in the canceled Legend of Mata Nui video game, so its place in the canon storyline is dubious. After the story turned serious, it is doubtful it will be ever brought up again.

  • Kapp'n from the Animal Crossing series, has been depicted as farting quite often, starting with Animal Crossing: New Leaf. This doubles as a Genius Bonus; in many Japanese myths, kappa are described as obsessed with farting-based Toilet Humor, and as such are prodigious farters. Some stories even depict them with three anuses in order to perform literally inhuman farts!
  • Captain Blubber from Banjo-Kazooie speaks entirely in burps.
  • Boogerman makes heavy use of this, as the titular character is a super-disgusting individual who uses super-powerful belches, farts and boogers as weapons.
  • Vivi in Brain Dead 13. In the most basic death scene she can inflict, if Lance waits too long to choose a service, she can't resist drinking his blood, completely exsanguinating him in the span of about 1 to 2 seconds by sucking his blood. She then lets out a very loud and unfeminine belch, plus an almost-proud sounding giggle afterwards.
  • In the Call of Duty: Black Ops II portion of Call of Duty: Zombies, The Lad-ette Abigail "Misty" Briarton belches loudly and shamelessly, to the point the game's own wiki notes that she burps the loudest out of everyone on the team - the rest being male - upon drinking Perk-A-Cola, and seems to be proud of it.
  • Dalton in Chrono Trigger belches (farts in the Japanese version) after he's hit with the finishing blow, which counts as a party-wide attack. Even a golem that's copying him does the same thing.
  • Conker's Bad Fur Day has Marvin, a mouse character who burps and farts frequently, and is seen in the chapter Barn Boys. The gases it expels are so strong that Conker vomits upon smelling them (twice in the case of the farts' gas). Conker is explicitly asked by two characters to get rid of him, which is done by feeding the mouse three chunks of living cheese.
  • Conker was depicted as being one in Project Spark. Not only did he have a farting special attack at his disposal, but, in Crossroads mode, villagers would occasionally ask if someone broke wind while playing as Conker.
  • Crash Bandicoot:
    • The Stenches are bird/skunk hybrids known for their huge bursts of concentrated stink in their enemy's direction. They do not qualify as fartillery as they're usually not actual farts, however, they are capable of this, as a small fox learns the hard way.
    • In Crash: Mind Over Mutant, though, their special attack appears to come from their rear.
    • There's also Zem from Crash Nitro Kart, who's basically this trope and nothing else.
  • The demon Gluttons in Dante's Inferno.
  • Donkey Kong Country
    • In Donkey Kong 64, one of Chunky Kong's most powerful attacks is a giant belch that, in the form of a circular green shockwave, kills any enemy it hits, including some that can't be defeated in any other way.
    • Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! had a giant living barrel named Belcha as its first boss. To defeat it you had to throw things into its mouth and make him burp himself off the edge of the level.
  • The Bile Demons from Dungeon Keeper had weaponized farts.
  • EarthBound's Master Belch.

  • The protagonist of the aptly-named indie game, Farting Felix.
  • In the original Grand Theft Auto game, there is a button to honk the horn while driving a car. If you press it while your character is on foot, he burps or farts.
  • Grand Theft Auto 2: The player character, considering how there's a dedicated button that makes either a fart or burp noise. Ahh, the nineties.
  • In HuniePop 1, one of the random lines for if you try to feed food to Hot Teacher Aiko Yumi when she's full and her hunger meter is maxed out is an extremely loud belch, followed by a girlish giggle of amusement. This ties into her characterization as jaded, somewhat slobbish, and apathetic. Also, because of the way the game works, so long as you have enough food, you can keep feeding her and keep making her burp.
  • When you manage to talk Luba Licious, the bisexual, slutty, Hard-Drinking Party Girl, out of the bar in Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude, and after you complete the minigame to get her out of the bar, she lets out a long, deep, loud, brassy belch before leaving, as a result of chugging three shots of tequila.
  • Some puzzles in McPixel end with someone farting if you get it wrong. 100% Completion wins you a "Fart-Along" rhythm game.

It is known for inflicting the Soiled status effect (preventing you from using healing items temporarily) by hurling Territorial Dung, farting, and belching its rancid breath at your hunter. Freedom Unite introduces a subspecies that not only farts more often, but can also eat mushrooms to belch fire, poison, or paralyzing gas (adding Blastblight powder in 4 and 4 Ultimate).
  • Oddworld features a weaponized version in the form of a green cloud that can be possessed and detonated on command.
  • In Paladins, Moji's familiar, Po-Li, becomes this with the Toot legendary card. With it, he'll leave a fart trail while dashing around that somehow gives allies a speed boost and some healing.
  • Pokémon:

    • Stunfisk's "cry" is a wet fart and its first animation is laughing in your face.
  • ALL the monsters in Rampage: Total Destruction burp and/or fart after consuming people.
  • Occurs often in fighting games, bonus points if the character is also morbidly obese (ie: Earthquake, Chaos, Bo'Rai'Cho etc). The same characters tend to also hurl other bodily fluids on command, which may stun, slip or just dissolve the recipient.
  • Shadow of the Wool Ball: The episode 2 boss is shown in his introductory cutscene chugging from a bottle, then lets out a loud, echoing burp, followed by a fart.
  • Sloppy Sims in The Sims series and Sims with the "Slob" trait in The Sims 3 burp and fart randomly.
  • Splatterhouse: Wanpaku Graffiti has something of a Big-Lipped Alligator Moment where the player can ruin a geisha's performance by pressing either A or B to fart.
  • The South Park Video Games have you play as the New Kid, who is known for being every bit as gassy as Cartman, as well as Terrance and Phillip. This is taken to an extent to where the New Kid can actually weaponize their farts to the point where they can either tear down walls or bend the fabric of time.
  • In Tropico, this is one of the character flaws you can choose. (The effects: worse foreign relations, and your palace staff gets double pay.)
  • In A Vampyre Story, the heroine Mona de Lafitte lets out a huge belch when, late in the game, she drinks blood from the fat slovenly drunkard Bruno Stoker. She's mortified by the noise she makes, and hastily attributes it to the sheer quantity of booze in Bruno's blood. Must be all the beer he drank.
  • Super Mario Bros.:
  • In the previous-gen version of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the boss fight against Blob is confined to boxing ring. One of Blob's special moves is to jump above the screen and land on a designated target (think Goro). If he lands on Wolverine (sitting, mind you), he proceeds to fart on him before getting up.
  • Yooka from Yooka-Laylee utilizes his flatulence to blow bubbles large enough to encase himself and Laylee within, which allows them to walk underwater and gives them full access to their on-land repertoire of moves.

    Web Animation 
  • Germaine of Neurotically Yours chugged down a bottle of the titular soda in "Gas-E-Pop" and burped constantly for the remainder of the short. Since then, she has been known to burp randomly out of the blue (and again with soda in the A-Kon Convention episode).
  • If a belch is heard on RWBY, it almost definitely came from Nora, the resident Big Eater and Genki Girl.
  • FreedomToons: The FreedomToons version of Cenk Uygur is constantly burping.
  • While in the original I Luv Halloween amerimanga, Moochie's "cabbage poot" is an almost blink-and-you'll-miss-it joke, the youtube animation turned it into a 20 second long EXPLOSION that leads one to wonder just what the heck she ate for breakfast that day.

    Web Comics 
  • Baby Man from Axe Cop, who has the powers of a baby.
  • World of Fizz:
    • Lampshaded in theseeditions, although other characters are more frequently shown belching or farting than Kelli.
    • Kelli's little brother definitely fits the bill. He is prone to flatulent outbursts more so than any other character.
  • Skull the large blue troll on PvP.
  • Ayanah from Pawn. Not only does she fart several times throughout the series, they're also usually comically exaggerated; they have been shown to be capable of echoing throughout the entire dungeon and were even (accidentally) used as Fartillery.
  • Sabra "Stick" Klein in PreTeena is an adolescent girl with such a repertoire of belches that boys her own age fall helplessly in love with her superpowers.
  • Rowan from Boy and Dog farts a lot.

    Western Animation 
  • Adventure Time:
    • Double Subverted with Gunter: In the Vignette Episode "Five Short Graybles" the Ice King falsely accuses him of stinky air, only to realize it was his own armpits.

    • Libby is implied to be a female variant who normally prefers to avoid burping. When she accidentally took the Belch Boy packet in The League of Villains, she initially couldn't control her burping at first, but then she quickly masters it, to the point she becomes better than Carl at using her powers, as she can burp on-cue instead of needing to drink seltzer or shake herself around to "charge up" first. Eventually, she invents a new dance with her burps.
  • American Dad!'s Stan Smith can become this from time to time.
    • Notable moments include the very first episode, where he tries to retort Hailey's jab against gun laws with a fart. In "License to Till", he farts while hugging Francine.

He also audibly farts out a wedgie in "Garbage Stan".
    • At one point, he eats an entire bag of Doritos and "shares" it with Hailey by burping loudly and blowing his burp in her face. Several episodes also indicate that he enjoys either the smell of his farts or the feeling of releasing them.
      Stan: "Sorry I took so long, I farted while pulling into the drive way and I just wanted to enjoy it for a while"
    • Roger would also be included in this category. At one point, he farts a lethal gas during the middle of the night, prompting the whole family to leave their residence and stay at a hotel for a week.
    • Francine can also be included. She once let out an enormous belch after chugging an entire liter of soda. She also farted in bed in the episode "Stan Time", and in the episode "Of Ice and Men", she farts which unintentionally activates Stan's password recognizer to enter a hidden passageway in the house, and again in the same episode when she was confronted by Clifford asking for the same password.
      Clifford: Stop, maiden woman! No further shall ye venture without the password.
      [Francine farts]
      Clifford: Ugh! What in God's name is wrong with you?
      Francine: I thought that was the password.
      Clifford: It's not a word. It's a terrible, terrible abomination.
    • Stan once notices that she often lets out silent, yet non-smelling farts in the episode "Shallow Vows".
  • Animaniacs:

He once belched The Blue Danube in Symphony Hall, and was a general provider of dozens of burp jokes throughout the run of Animaniacs. His Symphony Hall performances, under his alter ego of "the Great Wakkorati", were always based on this and ended with him bowing and repeatedly declaring, "Excuse me!"
    • For one performance Wakko had lost his voice, so he had to make fart noises with his hands instead. However, the last note was played hands-free.
  • Pam from Archer has been shown to belch and fart a lot. She will belch openly, but when she farts it's usually while she's asleep. Archer himself also burps pretty often, and starting in Season 6 Cheryl has been seen letting out a burp or two when she gets really drunk.
  • In Beast Wars:
    • Megatron uses a virus to turn Rhinox into one of these. It backfires. Literally.
    • In Season 2, Transmetal Cheetor seems to develop this whenever he's around energon. in "Bad Spark," he ends up emitting an energon fart and apologizes:
    Cheetor: My Transmetal bod's been soaking up so much energon I'm about to blast one off.
  • While Gene from Bob's Burgers isn't seen farting too often, he is a big fan of flatulence-based music. He has a set of farts programmed on his keyboard, and his segment on "The Frond Files" ends with a song about them. Alpha Bitch Tammy is also known to fart a lot, but unlike Gene she takes no pleasure in it.
  • Boy Girl Dog Cat Mouse Cheese:
    • Inverted. Boy is unable to burp even when he tries to, though he later overcomes this by drinking a whole can of fizzy pop at once.

    • In the episode "Gone with the Wind" Cleveland is given a literal fart card by his doctor.
    • Auntie Momma farts so much that it's actually part of her catchphrase.
  • Dennis's baby sister Bea in Dennis and Gnasher. Dennis has been known to use her farts as a weapon.
  • Garby the Stegarbasaurus from Dinotrux, is part stegosaurus, part garbage truck, the latter half being what gives him his grosser attributes, such as expelling gas and excreting the rocks he eats as cubic bricks. He can even shoot them out of his backside with enough force that they can be used as an effective weapon.
  • D.N. Ace has Digby, who's a combination of a groundhog and a whoopee cushion.
  • Drawn Together:
  • Granma-ma from Duckman, who was in a vegetative state and could only communicate through farting.

  • Family Guy's Peter Griffin, the King of the Fart Joke. Not only does Peter use his farts at will (mostly to abuse Meg), but in a cutaway gag, he had a farting contest with Michael Moore and the two basically "created" music out of it. Peter's no slouch when it comes to burping either.
  • Maurice the Maggot of Freaky Stories was continually farting. At one point he gets the "Maggot Flu", which is like the normal flu, except you also fart whenever you sneeze. That said, Larry the Cockroach was able to beat him at a fart-off.
  • The first episode of Garfield Originals is devoted to burping antics done by Garfield, Jon and Odie.
  • The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy:
    • Billy is guaranteed some approximation of three fart jokes and five burp jokes per scene he appears in. In the episode "Tastes Like Chicken" Mandy proved herself quite the Gasshole as well (her belches cause minor earth tremors).
    • Wanda, a character that only appeared in the episode "Just the 2 of Pus". She works at a psychic and a skin doctor. She is also very flatulent and makes the smoke affects for her psychic seances with her farts, which she does several times through out the episode.
  • Kon Kujira from Grojband, as seen in "Smash Up Terby" after he pulls Trina's finger.
  • At least two villains from Grossology had this theme:
    • The first was recurring antagonist Fartor, who can only breathe methane thanks to one too many dutch ovens from his brother Gary (who could also qualify for this trope) as a kid. He can also weaponize his own flatulence.
    • The second was one-shot villain Basso Profundo, a disgraced opera star who could weaponize his own burps. He ended up defeated in a burping contest by Harvey Archer.
  • One episode of Iron Man: Armored Adventures has Pepper Potts claiming that she can recite the alphabet from A-Z and name the 50 states of America, all in one burp.

  • Dragon from Jane and the Dragon.
  • Beezy on Jimmy Two-Shoes, usually of the burping variety.
  • Johnny Test:
    • The title character has his signature "flaming power poots" under his superhero form, "Johnny X".
    • Dukey and his continuous farting with little concern for others.
    "That's a sign of happiness in many cultures ."
  • Justice League Action: In the episode Keeping Up With The Kryptonians, the heroine Supergirl lets out a loud, unladylike burp powerful enough to shake the farm she was in when eating blueberry pie. She then covers her mouth and mutters an "pardon me" with an embarrassed smile.
  • Stumpy the squirrel from Kaeloo. The problem gets even worse when he drinks soda.
  • Gonard from Kappa Mikey is also a constant source of gas-themed humor, featuring such gags as him accidentally blowing up a house with a fart. The same episode mentioned that medical science used the term "Gonard's Syndrome" to describe explosive flatulence. He has nothing on Mitsuki, however, whose own fart echoed throughout the galaxy after she accidentally ate some ice cream with novelty farting powder on it.
  • Gunther from Kick Buttowski. Brad has been known to fart when he needs to (e.g. in a fight) and one episode revealed Kendall is one in private.
  • Kim Possible: One would think Kim's friend and sidekick Ron Stoppable, with his primarily Bueno Nacho-based diet, would be an absolute fart machine... but aside from a passing (no pun intended) reference in "Ron Millionare", you'd be wrong! Rufus, however, rips a horrendous one at least once!
    Kim: Hey, you don't tell him to cut out the gross stuff when I'm around.
    Ron: What's your point?
  • The Legend of Korra:
    • Meelo. He even weaponizes it a few times.
    • Korra herself qualifies, being able to belch with so much gusto that Bolin's hair and collar are visibly blown around by it from a few feet away.
  • The Loud House:
    • Lincoln can let out a good fart, such as in "A Tale of Two Tables," "Space Invader," and "Roughin' It."
    • Lori farting is a Running Gag.
    • Lynn is usually very flatulent and loves giving Dutch ovens (especially to Lincoln)... and for some reason likes receiving them as well. She's also shown burping the most often out of all of the sisters.
    • As revealed by Lola in "Brawl in the Family", Lana often sleep-farts so loudly that it blocks the sound of snoring.
    • As shown in "Come Sale Away", Lola herself is apparently the best burper in the family, even winning the family Burping Contest and being quite proud of herself for it.
    • All ten brothers (the male counterparts of Lincoln's sisters) constantly burp and fart, and give Lincoln a Dutch Oven Loud House style in "One Of The Boys".
  • From The Mask: the Animated Series, Kablamous the Exploding Man (who's somehow able to inflate and explode himself repeatedly) is defeated when The Mask affixes a tap to him, causing him to deflate harmlessly every time he tries to inflate... turning him into what is essentially a perpetual farting machine. And the police hauled the gassy miscreant to jail... with clothespins on their noses!
  • The titular Power Trio from Mega Babies are a shining examples especially Meg. In one episode she actually blew a hole in the Ozone Layer with her farts!
  • Coop from Megas XLR is as talented at belching as you would expect someone with his stature and limitless appetite to be. Hilariously, when tasked with giving "special training" to a team of Power Ranger/Voltron expies, the one he teaches how to belch loudly is the sole female member of the team.
  • Mr. Rude of The Mr. Men Show does this on occasion.
  • The Flea from ¡Mucha Lucha!. He farts more than anyone else and implements Fartillery numerous times as well. He burps often, too.
  • From Mysticons, in the episode "Heart of Gold", Piper outburps Emerald's brothers with a burp so powerful that she assumes the coincidentally-timed earthquake that happened afterwards was her fault.

  • Planet Sketch: "Parping Ponies" is about a horse named Horace and his aunt Hortense trying to avoid the embarrassment that usually results from Horace's flatulence problem. Sometimes (but rarely) Hortense also has flatulence.
  • Buttercup of The Powerpuff Girls (2016) belches sometimes. Bubbles also farts often, especially in her sleep.
  • The Ren & Stimpy Show:
    • Stimpy is very flatulent from time to time. When it happens in the infamous Son of Stimpy episode, he calls it his child because it came out of his butt. Given that it is Ren and Stimpy, the fart actually is sentient.note  Stimpy tries to fart a second time, in order to prove to Ren that it really happened. The first try is a dud, the second try isn't much better, and Ren starts to get impatient. So Stimpy tries a third time, teeth gritting and straining as hard as humanly possible. Stimpy's butt cheeks swell up then suddenly go limp and deflate as Stimpy gasps in exhausted defeat. Ren then dismissively kicks at Stimpy's deflated butt cheeks.
    • Giant powerhouse superhero Powdered Toast Man is associated with his own brand of "powdered toast", which is made when he takes regular toast and releases a loud, long fart on it.
    • Don't think that Ren wasn't a Gasshole from time to time... he did make bubbles in the bubbles in the bathtub in a couple of episodes... and not with his mouth!
  • Rick and Morty:
    • Rick Sanchez frequently burps in the middle of his sentences, which seems to be due to the fact that he's constantly inebriated. It's also evidently genetic as his daughter Beth can do the same, something that his alternate dimension selves take pride in.
    • Summer manages to fart near the end of "The Rickchurian Mortydate". It's not very impressive, but Rick admits it was funny.
  • In The Ripping Friends the villain Citracet was granted super powers all revolved around farting.
  • Robotboy: Gus Bachman-Turner. But he meets his match when Santa Claus (who is actually revealed to be extremely buff in that episode) presses his butt into an open present, lays a tremendous fart, and gives it to Gus. The stink burns Gus' eyes and leaves him smelling like Santa for months, which isn't nearly the punishment his present got, who had to take it head on.
  • Heffer of Rocko's Modern Life was mostly known for being a Big Eater, but he was sometimes pretty flatulent as well.
  • Samurai Jack has an episode titled "Jack and the Farting Dragon". The episode is about a giant, powerful dragon who has brought a town to hell with his flatulence. While the dragon initially found joy in this, he eventually came down with stomach pains and persuades Jack to crawl inside him and "fix whatever is causing him and the villagers harm".
  • The Simpsons:
    • Barney Gumble, whose distinctive belch is his Catch Phrase, and soon became the belching sound effect on the show.
    • Homer, Bart and Maggie have been frequently seen burping from time to time.
    • "Beyond Blunderdome" began with the Simpsons visiting an electric car dealership. The saleslady asks them "Are you ready to say 'goodbye' to gas?", to which Bart replies "Sure am!", accompanied by a belch. Marge, aghast, is about to scold her son, but is interrupted by her own fart.
    "Well, that shut me up!"
  • South Park:
    • There's Terrance and Phillip, who act like farting machines. The entirety of their Show Within a Show is finding some way for one character to fart in the other's face.
    • Cartman's no slouch in the fart department, and neither is Randy Marsh.
  • Stinkie in The Spooktacular New Adventures of Casper, and the movie it was based off of. His trademark move is a "smell-o-gram," where he burps out an awful stench to the unfortunate recipient.
  • Stōked:
    • Broseph, Reef and Fin are all belch variants.
      • Broseph, though, he doesn't burp as frequently as Reef or Fin, he can match Fin in power or at least come close. For example: in the final episode, he was in no condition to surf because of his upset stomach, but ends up winning the men's tournament anyway when said upset stomach causes him to burp powerfully enough to propel him backwards into a 1080, beating Reef's score of 9.5 with a perfect 10.
      • Reef is another contender for most frequent burper on the show, although unlike Fin or Broseph he's not winning any contests.
      • Fin doesn't do it too often, but she's the best burper on the show, and has possibly burped more frequently than anyone else (except for maybe Reef or Broseph) and after passing the "man tests" in season 2's 24th episode, Heartbreak Hotel (and said tests actually start with her chugging soda and belching), she celebrates by cutting loose with a burp powerful enough to blow Reef's and Broseph's hair & lips back, knock Johnny over and shake the room they were in. This is excellent foreshadowing of the plotline that Fin is One of the Boys to such an extent that even the guys find her too much to put up with. Even some of her weaker burps can still blow a person's hair back. Naturally, she's also seen having a Burping Contest with Johnny, Reef, and Lo in the episode "Brofinger". Also, in what may be an Actor Allusion, she has the same voice actress as Total Drama's Izzy, mentioned above.
    • Ripper is the only Gasshole on the show known for farting rather than burping, hence the Meaningful Nickname.
  • Yoshi in Super Mario World burped quite often including one that resulted in Mario, Luigi and Princess Toadstool sharing a parting laugh.
  • Pumbaa of The Lion King's quality is played for comic effect in the spin-off series, Timon & Pumbaa.
  • Total Drama: Owen. The guy kills a fish in the opening intro!
    • Izzy's generally a Cloud Cuckoolander, but in the season one special "Total Drama, Drama, Drama, Drama Island", she not only lets out a very loud, deep belch, she is then shown burping so hard she creates a small tidal wave in the nearby pool. Owen is awestruck by the first, proclaiming Izzy to be a marshmallow goddess (she was eating 95 of them and washing them down with a soda at the time), but the second one makes him declare that he thinks he's in love with her.
    • Blainey can fart and burp at the same time with enough force to shake her bloated stomach, the room and even the camera to the point of breaking.
    • Sam in Total Drama All-Stars has farts that are strong enough to knock Gwen out as seen in "The Treasure Island of Dr. Mc Lean".
    • Sky from Total Drama Pahkitew Island burps loudly whenever she is nervous, especially when around a guy she likes. She can also burp with great force, which she attributes to all her athletic training making her abs and diaphragm incredibly strong. Her act in the talent show is destroying wooden targets with her burps (including two at the same time, with Chris sitting between them and remaining unharmed), and claims that with enough carbonation in her she can extinguish a campfire. Interestingly, after being forced to chug a gallon of mineral water on a dare and getting a painful Balloon Belly from it, she only manages a pathetically weak burp, until the actual one come out when she’s about to kiss Dave.
    • Sugar, also from Pahkitew Island farts after falling on her face in the commercial for Darwin's Food Safari, which also happens to be part of her audition tape. She also burps often, typically after eating something, and when Sky says that she'll be burping in the talent show, Sugar comments that "Belching ain't a talent, it's a way of life!"
  • The Venture Bros.: The Action Man from the original Team Venture is prone to flatulence at his advancing age.
  • The title character from Whatever Happened to... Robot Jones? did this a lot in "embarrassment", whenever he was anywhere near Shannon, he LITERALLY blew it.
  • Yvon of the Yukon has the titular character, Yvon Ducharme, who not only never bathes, but also farts frequently. At one point, someone tried to use CPR on him, and the chest compression casued Yvon to fart, which caused his would be rescuer to pass out.

  • An inversion by Martin Luther is well known in Germany: "Warum rülpset und furzet ihr nicht? Hat es euch nicht geschmacket?" ("Why don't you belch and fart? Not to your taste?") Alas, he probably never said it.
  • Among those who knew her, Marilyn Monroe was notorious for her frequent flatulence. Which really sheds a new light on the famous skirt-blowing scene.
  • An American housewife named Jodie Parks, the ‘Queen Of Burps’, was declared the loudest female burper in the world with a belch officially measured at an eight feet distance of 104.75 decibels by the Guinness World Records, who officiated the record during a Spanish variety show, in Madrid, Spain, on Saturday, February 16th, 2008. However, she lost the title to Elisa Cagnoni, who burped 107.0 decibels at The 13th Annual Hard Rock Beer Festival Rottosound Competition in Reggiolo, Italy on Tuesday, June 16th, 2009. In comparison, the noise level in a disco is approximately 110 dB.
  • Katy Perry, according to her former husband...
    "That woman is like a flatulence factory. The pop hits that she fires out of her mouth are nothing compared to what comes out the other end of her!"
  • Dougie Poynter from Mc Fly.
  • 19th Century French stage performer Joseph Pujol, aka Le Petomane, was known for his act of using his wind to imitate cannon fire and explosives, blowing out candles from several yards away, and playing "La Marseillaise". In his army days, he amused his fellow soldiers by, ah, imitating a waterspout. Yes, with his ass. Le Petomane is a doubtful example, actually, as he did not actually fart - he just had incredible control over his butthole muscles, which let him...suck in large amounts of air. Into his ass. Bloody Frenchmen.
  • Kelly Rowland of Destiny's Child has some huge burps.
  • Jessica Simpson and her truck-driver belches.
  • Skunks spray on their enemies, making it look like they're farting, but it's actually just vaporized musk rather than a fart.
  • Inverted by Josef Stalin, who had a phobia of farting in public.
  • David Tennant of Doctor Who fame would have regular farting contests on the TARDIS set with co-star, John Barrowman. One co-star would get annoyed so they would rip a big one when she passed by. David also confessed to farting before getting on stage to relieve stage fright. Also....This burp. He may be an adorkable, sweet, cute, talented, sexy man but he does love his gross gas-based bodily functions. Weird boy.
  • Justin Timberlake, who has won the inaugural Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards burping contest for the Best Burp Award more than once.
  • While making The Abyss, Ed Harris demanded cabbage as a snack/meal as he was on a strict diet. This however became almost unbearable for him and indeed the rest of the crew as he was constantly farting and giving himself and the other crew members the dry boak. In one underwater scene where Harris was in his diver suit, he farted and the smell was so intoxicating that he actually vomited inside the suit. The scene was obviously cut and it took hours for Harris to resurface, clean the suit, submerge and re-shoot the scene. James Cameron was reportedly furious with Harris for this and took action by placing air fresheners in all the actors and crew members' suits to help ensure that there was no repeat of the incident.
  • There are several videos on the internet of people showing off their belching skills. Those are only a few of the many, many, examples.
  • Anybody following a healthy diet is going to become one. High-fiber vegetables and beans create a lot of gas, while sulfurous foods such as eggs and onions make it smell (fitness-minded people have said that the gas from hard-boiled eggs is a special kind of hell). Nopales/nopalitos (prickly-pear cactus pads, de-spined and eaten as a vegetable) are less infamous for this, but no less effective.
  • Metformin, the front-line drug treatment for type II diabetes, is sometimes called 'Metfartmin'.
  • One of the more noticeable symptoms when your stomach/digestive system doesn't agree with your food. Like lactose intolerance.
  • A Bronx cheer or raspberry is an imitation fart emitted through the mouth, often meant as an ironic cheer.
  • Ninja and XQC two well known Fornite streamers have been recongized for their constant flatulence. In every stream they always have to fart, usually for comedic effect or just being gassy regularly, it's so frequent that even compilations exist]].
  • The entire competitive eating community are practically defined for this trope. Considering how their entire content revolves around eating they are prone to constant belches and or farting very frequently (on or offscreen), it's a regular thing for this community. Just look at Erik The Electric and Beard Meets Food for instance.
  • Christopher Lee's first television experience was playing opposite Mallorcan actor Richard Molinas in Kaleidoscope. The experience was ruined by Molinas' flatulence and Lee was so shaken by it that he swore off live television again until he hosted Saturday Night Live.
    As his tall and intimidating boss, I had to spring through the door, upbraid him for being slow with his investigation of a case and haul him over the coals. I did so. He looked abashed. As well he might - for he'd let loose, as I spoke, a thunderous fart, a prince of farts. Nor was he finished. Hardly had its echoes ceased reverberating across the set than he followed it up, out of sheer fright, with a rival for a higher decibel count. I had done more than knock the wind out of his sails, I'd deflated him absolutely.

    We played a ten-minute scene without once looking at each other. And he never stopped farting. It was like 50 rounds rapid. The celebrated Petomane of Paris himself would have been impressed. People behind the camera were rolling in agony, but there was nothing they could do to help us. The glory and the confusion were all ours. I racked my brains to no avail to find a way to let the viewers know that the credit should all go to Richard. It was hopeless. We were on our own, with the scene to ourselves, indissolubly bound by our predicament.
  • Richard Harris. At school, he'd fart to get attention. When an interviewer asked him about Michael Caine, he let rip an almighty fart and said, "You hear that? That was an automatic fart after hearing his name". In the early nineties, he starred in a production of Henry IV. James Hogg, then box office assistant recalls:
    I must say he was excellent in the role and the show was a triumph. However, one thing we hadn't bargained for at the theatre was Mr. Harris' flatulence. Apparently he was famous for it, although I'd never heard anything. We started to get the odd comlaint during the previews. Some old ladies in the front row had heard what they thought was someone blowing a raspberry onstage. Naturally we thought nothing of it. Then, as the run progressed, we started to get comlaints every other night. To investigate, we gave ourselves seats in the front row, and sure enough, just after Harris made his entrance, we heard one. A bit of a corker too. The thing was, Harris really didn't seem to care. Either that or he didn't seem to know it was happening. The morning after one performance I was sitting in the box office with the manager, haing a cup of tea and reading The Daily Mail, and there it was, something along the lines of "Star's wind spoils theatre trip". A disgruntled customer had decided to go to the papers and they'd obviously snatched it up.
  • The lineup scene in The Usual Suspects was meant to be a serious scene, but it was ruined by someone (believed to be Benicio del Toro) ruining twelve takes by constantly farting. For his part, Del Toro said, "Someone farted, but I don't know who".
  • Paul Oldfield (AKA Mr Methane) is practically this trope in real life, considering his persona is literally a fart comedian. Mr Methane is a British flatulist or "professional farter" who started performing in 1991 and is still ongoing to day, able to do longest fart and farts as a daily profession.
  • Billie Eilish isn't ashamed to flaunt this, as she constantly belches and farts a lot on stage and isn’t opposed to doing so in front of people either. She also genuinely admits that pooping is her favorite part of the day.
  • This was a consistent problem in the early days of NASA (and presumably the Soviet space program, though they were much more secretive in those days). Trapped in an airtight suit with your own farts is one thing, trapped in an airtight capsule with yours and those of two other guys was far worse. Gemini and Apollo spacecraft would splash down and the Navy recovery divers who opened the hatches were often driven off by the smell (compounded by the inability to of the astronauts to wash themselves). There were unknown factors involving space food and waste production, as well as excessive hydrogen gas in the drinking water (which was a byproduct of the fuel cells that provided electricity). Buzz Aldrin later commented that "we could've turned off the RCSnote  and done the job ourselves", while John Young inadvertently told the entire planet he was farting while walking on the Moon.
  • Roger Moore recalled in his memoir that while filming The Quest, Jack McGee broke wind after each take. This drew the ire of Jean-Claude Van Damme, who wasn't amused, but the rest of the cast and crew, especially Moore, found it hilarious.
  • A schoolyard variant of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987) theme song was "When the evil Shredder farts, these turtle boys put on their gas masks!"

FYI: Pebbledash is a stinkbug.

How well does it match the trope?
