Should the world never need saving again and heroes are no longer needed, there's a good chance that they'll end up looking like the obese version of themselves identified in the Fat Gamers series.

Artist Franck Graetz has shown what certain characters can look like if they really let themselves go in his illustrative series called Fat Gamers. Iconic pop cultural icons are transformed into the quintessential lazy person who sits in a chair and plays games while stuffing themselves full of chips. Characters such as Mario, Donkey Kong and Link all make an appearance as alternate version of themselves that I'm sure most will never want to see. Here's to hoping that these folks pick up a new hobby before they really succumb to laziness. Stats for Obese Cartoon Caricatures Trending: Older & Warm
