Y'all. Body dysmorphia and body horror are not the same thing. Body dysmorphia is when a character sees their body as different than it actual is, or thinks it should be. It's often related to eating disorders which is why it's on here.

I don't think you all know what body dysmorphia is. No, no character expresses dysmorphia. No, body dysmorphia is not the same thing as body horror.

(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.

Early in the movie, the first person who the scientists send in with a symbiote gets pretty messed up by it.

One character's backstory has strong parallels with dysphoria, but this backstory (found in diaries) is completely optional to read.

In the training camp arc there is a character that has muscles on the outside of his body, and he's pretty huge. In the same arc there is a character whose quirk is his teeth - he can stretch and move them as he pleases and he uses them to walk. Also, throughout the series creatures called Nomu appear and many of them seem kind of patchwork and their brains are showing.
