Hefty Smurf (Empath stories)
Hefty is one of the characters that appear in Vic George's series of Smurfs fanfiction stories related to the character of Empath. While sharing some similarities to his cartoon show universe counterpart, Hefty in these stories tends to be a bit more prideful in his abilities and his being the firstborn Smurf of his generation, and is rather jealous in the presence of Empath so much that he has become a bitter rival. His firstborn pride also extends to a bit of friendly rivalry with his brother Handy. As a young Smurfling, Hefty acted as a bully toward his younger brother Grouchy until Empath stood up against him, eventually forcing Hefty to back away from tormenting Grouchy and his position as Papa Smurf's assistant was given over to Brainy and later on Empath. Hefty took after his father Muscles in the manner of both bodybuilding and wearing of tattoos on his arms.
