    I've come across another one - Constable Horatio Cobb in Dan Gutteridge's Turncoat series. He's a policeman in 1830s Toronto, and while we haven't been told exactly how big he is, here's a quote:

    "You could always try bein' a policeman," Cobb suggested. (This to a friend looking to do something after leaving the British Army.)

    "I haven't got the stomach for it." (This is the friend replying.)

    Cobb glanced down at the wheel of flesh that circumnavigated his middle and was kept sturdy by a steady feeding of warm beer and pub grub. "I can't see you bustin' heads and manhandlin' drunks,.....

    We are told that Constable Cobb is bigger than his wife, and his wife Dora is described "...as round and pink-fleshed as nearly three hundred pounds can accomplish."

    I can't believe the thread has gotten this far without anyone mentioning Nero Wolfe! :eek: Does no one read Rex Stout's whodunits any more? :(

    This is more recent, the arc in Naruto Shippuuden Chikara just concluded. This is Dokku, a village guard who was fired just before Kabuto and his zombie shinobi attacked his village. If you're a fan, these shows have not been dubbed or aired in North America and if you don't want to see, don't look. But I don't feel like waiting 3 years for them to butcher the originals.../animenerdrant.

    Zagor is an italian comic book, set in America first half of the 19th century. The main character's sidekick, named Chico, is a BHM.

    Howard Mollison in The Casual Vacancy.... though enjoy Rowling's descriptions of him in the novel, I'm sure that the movie won't have him anywhere near as big. (In the novel, he takes up an entire double bed himself, with his wife sleeping in a second bed beside his.)

    Same for me (but not with that character).
    For a while I could literally tell you every popular 90's book that featured a BHM for this same reason. I had no idea why I wanted to repeatedly read certain passages over and over.

    There was Stanley from Holes for instance. I was so pissed when they made him Shia LaBeauf in the movie.

    Anyone read that Goosebump book about the guy who got cursed to get fatter and fatter? Say Cheese and Die Again? That was pretty much my favorite goosebump book as a kid.

    Pretty much all the characters in Daniel Pinkwater's The Afterlife Diet, qualify, but I'm especially fond of Dr. Plotkin, Deli Psychotherapist: you go into a deli, sit down at the doctor's table, and he invites you to have a knish and tell him your problems. There are separate bills afterwards for the psychiatry and for the food. We also discover, when the good doctor goes home for the day, that he apparently threw a party in the early 'sixties and it's still going on: the place is full of beatniks, and when he goes to bed (around 1 am) he has to shoo some nudist chess enthusiasts out of his room so he can sleep.

    To give some idea, the thing he hated most about his parallel-universe "evil twin" was that he was skinny. ;)

    Pierre from War and Peace! Intellectual, sensitive, shy, bespectacled. . . . Definitely an early literary crush of mine. He also gains quite a bit throughout the novel. :blush:

    Absolutely! All pages featuring Pierre in my three copies (3 different translations from Russian) have dog-ears. And I couldn't even resist including his reference in one of my stories ....

    It's probably the only piece of (adult) world literature with a central, positive fat character who gains weight in the course of the story.
