Is there body dysphoria?

Browse movies, tv shows, books and more with body dysphoria.
It is important to distinguish between body dysmorphia and dysphoria. Dysmorphia is seeing your body as something other than it is (i.e., someone thinking they are overweight when they are a healthy weight), which dysphoria is disliking your body or feeling that something about it is “wrong.” Both are experiences common to transgender people and people with eating disorders, but they are very much different and should be labeled as such.

I wouldn't say there is *dysphoria*, because I feel as though that term is intrinsically linked to gender, but there is definitely *dysmorphia*

One of the main characters is a shapeshifter and there is a brief conversation about shapeshifting that can be interpreted as an allegory for body dysphoria.

There isn't in the transgender sense, which I believe this is mostly referring to, but The Spot is shown to be unhappy with the holes in his body and wants revenge on Miles as a result.

There are 3 characters who present it; one for being trans, another for not being "manly" enough and a third one for being fat (I wouldn't describe them as overweight but just plus sized or thicc). The third one is shown to have overcome it after puberty

Yes. The main character regularly insults and is horrified by his own body. Some of it is needlessly harsh, and some of it is well-informed, as years of alcohol/drug use have done considerable damage.
There is no body dysphoria relating to gender identity presented in the game.

Kind of. [SPOILERS]
Steven experiences a lot of his mothers memories and sometimes this is expressed with him not knowing if he is fully himself or not. A lot of homeworld gems also make fun of stevens appearance because they still think he's Rose/Pink in a disguise. He is dressed in feminine clothes when he’s captured by the diamonds
