Anime is full of skinny and beautiful characters, but sometimes some series are different from the usual. Let’s also explore what happens when an anime features a chubby character. Can you name a fat anime character? Probably not – because there are very few such characters. Most fat characters in anime appear and immediately make a strong impression; they are people who love to eat, are pretty dull, or are simply characters that amuse the audience.
Of course, the above is just a first impression – not all fat characters in anime agree. While uncommon, some examples demonstrate that a bit of body weight doesn’t define a character’s personality. The characters below are eloquent proof that it is impossible to see the face and capture the image.

1. Hanako Ohtani – Persona 4 The Animation
Hanako Ohtani represents the unique fat girl characters in the anime. She was comically overweight, looked like a ball, and would roll on top of her body between her and the food. Young Hanako is a brazen child. Hanako also enjoys eating anything and everything, even Mystery Food X, and is incredibly proud and conceited about her appearance and her body. She even went so far as to mock the Investigation Team girls before the swimsuit competition.
2. Minamo Aoi – RD Sennou Chousashitsu
In contrast to Ohtani, there is Minamo Aoi. None of the characters in this anime are chubby – they are more proportionally proportioned than in typical anime. But public opinion about this anime is quite negative, criticizing the film for having fat characters that are not attractive at all. Although the characters all know that the public reaction is not optimistic about her, it seems that Minamo Aoi received most of the worst reactions.
3. Milluki Zoldyck – Hunter x Hunter
Milluki Zoldyck is the role model for the chubby male characters in anime, is an otaku, and is a skilled inventor. Milluki, a young man of seventeen, has short, middle-parted black hair, and his eyes are dark and squinty. Due to a lack of exercise and bad eating habits, he is fat. He never leaves his home and is quite selfish and short-tempered. It looks like he fits well as Ohtani’s twin.
4. Haruyuki Arita – Accel World
Haruyuki Arita is one of the main overweight characters in the anime’s universe, but since deciding to step into the virtual world and transform into Silver Crow, he’s been amazing. Haruyuki may be the anime’s main character, but his weight still makes him the bullied, socially isolated person who spends his days playing video games. Even his other avatars in the game are reminiscent of how his friends – and many fans of the movie – see him as a little pink pig.
5. Kouta Hirano – Highschool of the Dead
From how he is portrayed, you would think that Kouta Hirano is a typical fat character in anime. Gun maniac loves women (but women don’t reciprocate) and is bullied at school for his size. Because Kouta is based on the well-known manga-ka and designer Hellsing, who has the same name in real life, he differs from other anime characters. This makes the character more empathetic and unlike other typical prominent anime characters.
6. Witch of the Waste – Howl’s Moving Castle
Witch of the Waste is not only mean–it’s the embodiment of evil. Always obsessed with her appearance, she used magic to make herself look young and beautiful when she was a fat woman. Despite being one of the main villains in the movie, it’s not because she’s too fat – it’s because she wants to be more beautiful in the way society wants her to be.
7. Porco Rosso – Kurenai no Buta
Porco Rosso is fat because he is a pig. He wasn’t always a pig, and his new appearance suited him better than his human form. As a chubby pig, Porco finds himself more relevant and understanding of humanity, which hasn’t stopped him from searching for love. He may be a chubby anime character, but his good looks are just a side effect of his pigface.
8. Takeo Gouda – Ore Monogatari
Takeo Gouda isn’t fat – he’s just big and muscular. But whether it’s fat or muscle, his extravagance still makes others insecure, making him a scary person. Even so, Takeo is the epitome of a gentle giant. He is kind and selfless and is lucky to have found a girl who can see who he is.
9. Josuke Udono – Basilisk: Kouga Nipou Chou
Like Takeo, Josuke Udono is a gentle giant misunderstood for his size. Although he is very kind, women are afraid of his prominent appearance. Like Takeo, Josuke uses his size to fight but also can stretch like rubber. Weapons were knocked out of him, but removing them was more difficult than deflecting them.
10. Chouji Akimichi – Naruto
Chouji Akimichi and his father Chouza may like to eat, but only because they follow the pattern. The two are good fighters, and although Chouji had to overcome many mockeries of his body size, both father and son used their size and transformed it into a powerful fighting style. Their fighting techniques are based on their size to make them bigger and stronger, making them formidable opponents on the battlefield.
11. Majin Buu – Dragon Ball Z
Majin Buu takes on various forms throughout the series while absorbing others into him. Each shape represents a personality. When he’s short, he’s gentle and innocent, and when he’s more robust and angrier, Buu is thinner. In Buu’s case, being chubby makes him look like a baby, both in looks and actions.
12. Kosaku Tokita – Paprika
Kosaku Tokita‘s actions and appearance are like that of an overgrown child, but behind his innocent and gentle exterior lies an intelligent brain. As the author of revolutionary new technology that allows people to step into other people’s dreams, even if he doesn’t fully grasp its implications. Kosaku fits the stereotype of a chubby anime character: he’s good at computers and has a great appetite.
13. Itaru Hashida – Steins Gate
On the surface, Itaru Hashida is the stereotype of a chubby anime character. As a computer programmer, an otaku, and a bit more of a pervert. Hashida is one of the fat anime characters best portrayed simply because his weight has nothing to do with him. He’s a regular guy who loves computers, anime, girls, and fat people.
14. Mitsuyoshi Anzai – Slam Dunk
Mitsuyoshi Anzai‘s immense size didn’t stop him from becoming one of Japan’s best high school basketball coaches. Mitsuyoshi’s huge belly is not noticed by the basketball players on the team but is called “White-Haired Buddha,” and he occasionally shakes his big belly. No one has any malice, every time, they do it very pleasantly, making Mitsuyoshi one of the most respected chubby anime characters.
15. Tamako Inada – Gin no Saji
There is no doubt that Tamako Inada is overweight, and she will certainly continuously enjoy delicious meals. Anime rarely focuses on the character’s size, aside from being surprised that she lost weight in such a short time. Tamako is Tamako, size isn’t what she looks like, and her friends accept her for who she is – that’s how things should be.
16. Jaian – Doraemon
Contrary to what many people think, Jaian is the character with the best qualities in Doraemon comics, even many times more than Doraemon and Nobita combined. Specifically, he is fearless, not afraid of anything in the world (except for his mother and teachers), has a high sense of responsibility, and always sacrifices himself to protect his friends when they are in danger. Throughout the series, he always solves things on his own, and anyone who talks badly about him gets beaten up, including his best friend Suneo.
17. Yubaba – Spirited Away
Yubaba is an old witch in the spirit world, where Chihiro accidentally got lost. Chihiro was made to labor in a public bathhouse in order to discover a means to remove the curse and return to the human world after this formidable witch transformed her parents into pigs and stole her identity. With an aged appearance, white hair, an oversized head compared to her body, and a sharp nose that stands out on a wrinkled face, Yubaba easily impresses viewers.
18. Charlotte Linlin – One Piece
The only female Yonko and the commander of the Big Mom Pirates, Big Mom, is actually Charlotte Linlin. She also serves as the head of the Charlotte family. Big Mom has a large, fat, unbalanced body with a wide mouth and a pointed nose. And true to the name of Big Mom, this mother currently has 43 husbands, 46 sons, and 39 daughters, so it is not surprising that she is fondly called by fans with the title “The mother with the most husbands and children in the manga/anime”.
19. Kokoro – One Piece
I don’t know if the author initially assumed that Kokoro‘s character’s gender was a man, but later changed to a woman, but this woman has an “extraordinary beauty”. Also, she loves to drink and gets drunk all day. Kokoro is also the character who ruined the image of the “mermaid” in the hearts of many fans.
20. Charlotte Lola – One Piece
Charlotte Lola is Bigmom’s daughter. Maybe that’s why she also inherited quite a bit of beauty from her mother. Judging by her appearance, Lola has short and quite fat legs, round eyes, large lips, and a face proportional to a large head. Although it is not catastrophically wrong, her hidden beauty is brutal for men to recognize, so even though she has proposed more than 4,000 times, no one has agreed to marry Lola.
21. Lucky Roo – One Piece
Lucky Roo is one of the most important crew members of the Red Hair Pirates and is also a highly effective arm of Shanks. This fat guy loves to eat meat, so his body is also proportional to eating. It is currently unknown if Lucky Roo possesses Devil Fruit powers, but he is considered extremely fast and a Haki master. His bounty is known to be around 97,000,000 Berry.
22. Alvida – One Piece
Alvida is the leader of the Alvida Pirates and Luffy’s first challenger in his quest to defeat One Piece. She now serves as one of the Buggy Pirates’ two captains. If only looking at her current appearance, Alvida deserves a foot in the list of the most beautiful characters of the series. The current beauty is just a fake Alvida got when eating the Devil Fruit Sube Sube No Mi.
23. Blackbeard – One Piece
The leader of the Blackbeard Pirates is Marshall D. Teach, well known by the moniker “Blackbeard.” He was a former member of the Whitebeard Pirates. Blackbeard is known to be very strong, proven both in the past and present. The Yami Yami no Mi & the Gura Gura no Mi are two Devil Fruits, and Blackbeard is the only character in One Piece known to have their combined strength.
24. Akira Takaoka – Assassination Classroom
Akira Takaoka is a skilled soldier who served as Tadaomi Karasuma’s former ally and the first enemy in the series. Takaoka believes that his love of eating made him chubby despite being a huge man. Due to years of rigorous training, he is also quite muscular. When he revealed his actual self as a ruthless drill sergeant, his initially quite affable demeanor was abruptly altered.
25. Gluttony – Fullmetal Alchemist
In the story, Gluttony is also described as an omnivorous nature, eating anytime, anywhere. He is like an obedient child and only really scary when hungry. With a strange belly, he can absorb everything, and thanks to this “hungry stomach,” Gluttony has made the main characters struggle a lot.
26. Ichiya Vandalay Kotobuki – Fairy Tail
Ichiya Vandalay Kotobuki is a short and rather chubby man with a large, slightly rectangular face, a flat nose that always shines, and prominent cheekbones. He is the captain of Team Trimens and the Blue Pegasus Guild’s ace in the hole. Although he has a personality and habits that make others feel creepy, he is a powerful mage, enough for Erza Scarlet to appreciate.
27. Marechiyo Omaeda – Bleach
The current vice-captain of Division 2 and the leader of the Special Patrol Force is Marechiyo Omaeda. A tall man with a big mouth and an egotistical, dimwitted disposition. He hails from a well-off family, according to an omake. Other people think his family’s connections are how he got his job as a lieutenant. He is a great strategist, despite his arrogant and ignorant demeanor.
28. King Kai – Dragon Ball Z
King Kai has such a great sense of humor that before he can agree to train someone, they have to make him laugh, and he tells funny stories. He possesses great intelligence and knowledge of the universe and specializes in universal psychic links. Despite being weaker than Vegeta before he taught Goku, King Kai is still a centuries-old storehouse of skills, techniques, and wisdom.
29. Kojima Genta – Detective Conan
Kojima Genta is a large student in class 1B who claims to be the captain of the Detective Boys. Genta is a gluttonous and very kind boy. He had been a close friend of Mitsuhiko and Ayumi even before Conan entered Grade 1B. Both Genta and Mitsuhiko feel for Ayumi and are very jealous of Conan when he sees that Ayumi likes Conan. Genta admires his father – Kojima Genji, a tall, hot-tempered man.
30. Agasa Hiroshi – Detective Conan
Agasa Hiroshi – commonly known as Dr. Agasa. Dr. Agasa is a close friend of Shinichi Kudo’s parents and a neighbor of the Kudo family in Japan. He got to know Shinichi and Ran when they were very young. Agasa Hiroshi is an inventor and Shinichi’s next-door neighbor. He invented many things, including video games. There are also useless or even broken inventions exploding in the laboratory.
31. Chouchou Akimichi – Boruto: Naruto the Movie
Chouchou Akimichi resembles his father in terms of both his physical appearance and his dietary needs. When they were the same age, she had the advantage over Chouji since she was faster and had more chakra. Chouchou, unlike her father, don’t get offended when someone criticizes her weight, and she comes across as a young lady who is incredibly confident.
32. Minori Nakazawa – No-Rin
Childhood pal Kosaku of Minori develops feelings for the adorable peasant girl. Both physically and emotionally, Minori Nakazawa is noticeably more significant than the other girls on the show. Kosaku, a protracted and tomboyish tsundere girl, is desperate to marry her. She is solid and kind since she spends a lot of time in the fields. Minori is a healthy country girl who understands what she wants, despite her voluptuous appearance!
33. Satsuki Yotsuba – Negima
Satsuki Yotsuba is an accomplished chef who owns and runs a prosperous restaurant. She is the school’s cafeteria officer and is usually praised for her culinary skills. Everyone loves her, and she has the authority to stop martial arts pupils from suing each other. Satsuki’s lovely disposition and positive outlook on life automatically brighten the mood when she is there.
34. Chieko – Princess Jellyfish
Chieko is incredibly resourceful and mature since, in addition to managing the project, she manages to stay calm under duress and is skilled at getting what she wants. She is also a skilled seamstress, which she attributes partly to her passion for everything antique. One of my favorite things about Chieko is that she doesn’t appear in a makeover program where everyone else does. Why? She feels just like her that she is already fashionable enough.
35. Pine-Pine – Space Dandy
Pine-Pine is a chubby harlot; there is no question about that. She has the ideal amount of feminine curves and is a towering presence. She has vast lips and a mole on her chubby cheek right next to it. Her voluptuous form makes her look captivating and suited for a night out or the office. Pine-Pine is surrounded by handsome men, even when coworker Scarlet joins her to meet possible suitors in the hopes of meeting someone special.
36. Yuriko Gouda – Ore Monogatari
Yuriko Gouda, who is in her forties, is a stay-at-home mother. In terms of her physicality and energy, she “looks like a twenty-something,” in her own words. She works nonstop, moves big things, cooks delectable meals, and takes excellent care of her husband and son. Yuriko is among the best mothers. Takeo unquestionably received this trait from her mother because she continuously extends a helping hand to others and prioritizes their needs before hers.
37. Risley Law – Fairy Tail
Risley Law is proud of her large frame. She can change gravity around her for herself and her opponents because of her magical abilities. She can now mount walls, leap huge distances, and even change her body proportions to make herself appear thinner when necessary. On the other hand, she prefers her curvier appearance, and we see her that way most of the time.
38. Kamado Ueshita – Mirai Nikki
The following mother figure on our list is Kamado Ueshita, who has been in charge of and cared for an orphanage for the past 14 years. She and the other proprietors of diaries that foretold the future had to murder one another in a game they played together that would determine who would become the new god of time. She is not eager to become a god of time; she is a caring, loving, calm woman who merely wants to win so that the world can be a better place for children.
39. Super Sonico – SoniAni: Super Sonico the Animation
Super Sonico isn’t your typical attractive, bare-chested anime heroine, despite being created as a character to satisfy a variety of anime fandoms. Compared to other well-endowed heroines, she has thighs, a tummy, and a broader physique. She manages to keep a grounded manner appropriate for a young girl of her stature despite being beautiful, voluptuous, talented, and quite busy.
40. Kazami Torino – Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid
Kazami Torino has it all. Ladies who don’t want to fight or have nowhere else to go can find safety on Mermaid Island, and Kazami Torino is happy to have them. Since she genuinely acts as a mother figure for them, she is looked up to by all the local females. If you look attentively, you can see where her clothing naturally constricts around her hips, tummy, and breast region. In my opinion, she’d be the cutest fat MQMC ever if you saw her in a bikini.
41. Totoro – Tonari no Totoro
Near the Kusakabe family, Totoro resides in the Tsukamori forest. Only kids can see him. Various sizes of species are also referred to as Totoro in general. Totoro is used for this character in the animated film My Neighbor Totoro. The spin-off Mei and the Baby Cat Bus features Totoro as a supporting figure.
42. Hachigen Ushōda – Bleach
This Visored is an expert in Bakudo, making him less skilled in melee combat, although he does have a sword. Hachigen Ushōda develops some friendships with Orihime Inoue as a Bakudo expert since, in his opinion, they both have the same kind of power. He was Tessai’s assistant in the Necromancer Corps; hence he is an expert in Kido and Bakudo. It is incredible how powerful he is to be able to send a type 99 bakudo without the use of magic.
43. Snorlax – Pokemon
If you do not know, Snorlax is one of the first Pokemon to appear in the Pokemon world. Very quickly, with a pretty cute look and a challenging personality, Snorlax became one of the most popular Pokemon. Also, thanks to the success of this image, a Pokemon of the pre-evolved level of Snorlax – Munchlax was born. As can be seen, for the Gen 1 Pokemon lineup, Snorlax is also a name that many fans cannot forget.
44. Yoshinobu Kubota – Sakamoto Desu ga
Yoshinobu Kubota, like every other character, is insignificant in comparison to Sakamoto. However, one would anticipate that. His character arc is quite intriguing. Kubota seeks Sakamoto’s assistance after being bullied, believing that Sakamoto will beat the bullies up and provide the typical sidekick experience. Instead, they both begin working in a fast-food restaurant so that Kubota might discover his worth and the value of money.
45. Nikuko – Oshiete! Galko-chan
Galko-chan depicts what takes place for Galko, Otako, and Ojou daily at school. The girls make an effort to debunk stereotypes about the anatomy of women. Nikuko is a classmate of Galko-chan and a participant in the girls’ futsal team. Although many people might believe that being overweight indicates one is unwell, Nikuko disproves this. The boys gave Nikuko the “Sonic Meat” moniker due to her lightning-quick reflexes.
46. Fat Gum – Boku no Hero Academia
The term “fat” appears right there in the man’s name. Can it get much better than this? Regarding his sense of fairness and ability to lead, Fat Gum is the ideal good cop. Fat Gum is a professional Hero with years of experience fighting in My Hero Academia. Given his strength and speed, he wouldn’t have much trouble defeating Neito in a physical confrontation.
47. Pig God – One Punch Man
Pig God is an S-rank Hero Association member with rank 10. Pig God is a large, obese man with layers of fat, short black hair, and thick lips. The audience can always see the image of this hero eating when appearing in all scenes, including when fighting monsters. This is the extraordinary strength of this hero. Like the other heroes, he can defeat a disaster-level Mystery Monster alone. This is shown through the battle with the monster Eyesight.
48. Reiji Andou – Prison School
Reiji Andou is super hentai, a true “masochist” who always wants to be eaten by Meiko. Andre is the most sensitive and easily shaken of the five, but he is also the strongest and the most resilient. Andre does everything to get Meiko to beat him up, touch Meiko’s chest, and even write a diary about what it’s like to be tortured in prison.
49. Doraemon – Doraemon
Doraemon is a blue robot cat. Doraemon also has a magic bag on his body with lots of cool stuff, like a future department store. He would get angry if he were called Raccoon. The winner of the 30 Dorayaki Eating Contest, Doraemon, once consumed a dorayaki the size of his bedroom and broke the record for the quickest dorayaki consumption in the Genius Book of Records.
50. Ozeki Shinya – Hinomaru Sumo
Ozeki Shinya was quite shy during his years at Oodachi High and was the only member of the sumo club until Hinomaru joined him. However, he became much more rigid and resilient after turning pro. Despite having a larger body, Shinya’s body is robust, thanks to constant training. His great fundamentals and high center of gravity make him such a strong wrestler.
