I would say yes because Ben grows up to lose weight and that is a source of contention and fear for him with Pennywise, that he will always be the fact kid. This doesn’t fit the typical stereotype of body dysmorphia, but his shame and being shamed by pennywise may cause issues for some.

Ep 90 deals pretty heavily with people who hate their bodies and are exercising obsessively to change them, as well as turning that theme up in body-horror contexts. A few other episodes dip into the same theme for a few lines

You are all extremely confused about what body dysmorphia is. Body dysmorphia is not body horror. Body dysmorphia is not gender dysphoria. Body dysmorphia is when a person (usually anorexic) perceives their body to be different(usually larger) than it actually is.

This is much of what drives the Elric brothers to get their bodies back for the entire anime, after one losing an arm and leg, and the other losing his whole body — that his soul was attached to a suit of armor. Comparing to real life, clearly those who are severely injured or amputated have trouble accepting their bodies.

(Spoilers!!) There seems to be a theme where all the humans that are evil and abusive are overweight, such as Todd Williams and the man who was killed by his android. While this could probably make someone with Body Dysmorphia uncomfortable (it sure does make me uncomfortable), there is not any characters with the disorder.

Yes Terry has a lot of body dysmorphia due to being fat before the show took place. He is obsessed with maintaining his perfect body and reacts very strongly to any sort of fat joke. At one point his wife is concerned with losing baby weight causing Terry, Amy and Gina to go on a comically restrictive diet in solidarity.
