** The games are much more explicit on the matter; predation ''does'' happen, and Pokemon ''do'' eat other Pokemon''. For example, Durant is eaten by Heatmor (as they are an ant and an anteater respectively), Yungoos and Furret both hunt Rattata, and Omastar preyed on Shellder. Less frequent, though still present, is mention of humans eating Pokemon. Farfetch'd is stated to be endangered because it is a popular dish served with leeks, and Basculin is also said to be "quite tasty".

* ''KimbaTheWhiteLion'' has played a bit with this problem (despite being guilty of this trope itself in early episodes): after all animals make peace under the new "lion king", they are suddenly facing a situation where no-one is allowed to eat anyone else, thus reducing their entire carnivore population to live solely on insect (and THAT gives them moral qualms; lucky that a man who's been trying to invent "artificial meat" eventually comes along...)

* Averted in ''WolfsRain'', where in spite of the wolves' ability to replenish energy by sleeping in the moonlight, it's clearly no substitute for actual food. Kiba mentions having gone a month with only moonlight to sustain him, and consequently is much thinner than the others. They find a decomposing deer carcass in one of the early episodes (which everyone but Hige turns down, generally because it's ''rotting''). After Toboe's CrowningMomentOfAwesome where he kills the giant walrus, they eat the walrus--and in a surprisingly dignified acknowledgment, the walrus says something along the lines of, "You may have killed me, but I have saved you all."

** When Ash caught his Krabby he was worried Oak was going to eat it. Professor Oak dismissed him because it was too scrawny to make a good meal, and said Gary's much larger Krabby is more appealing.

** Escargo([[SpellMyNameWithAnS o]])n has been shown on various occasions to be less than happy about the fact that some people eat molluscs, including snails. Nobody else seems to have a problem with the idea, despite the existence of snail-people. At one point, Dedede even offers Escargon some of the shellfish that he's eating - Escargon refuses for obvious reasons.
--> '''Chef Kawasaki (listing some of his [[CordonBleughChef "unique"]] sushi creations):''' ...And snail sushi!
--> '''Escargon:''' Are you trying to make me a cannibal?!

* ''ArashiNoYoruNi'' (One Stormy Night) is a heartwarming anime movie about a clumsy, mangy wolf named Gabu making friends with a sweet (if somewhat androgynous) goat named Mei. The wolf repeatedly had to suppress the urge to eat him and his kind, which his goat friend is blissfully unaware off (unlike his more wise nervous friends). For example, while going out on a picnic, Gabu loses his meal and (delirious with hunger) thinks about gnawing off Mei's ear under the assumption that friends should make others happy.

* ''YumeNoCrayonOukoku'' has an odd situation. The Crayon Kingdom has several neighboring kingdoms, such as the Hamburger Kingdom and the Rice Ball Kingdom. When dignitaries from all these kingdoms were invited to a banquet, we couldn't help wondering, "What do the hamburgers eat?" The question was answered: they eat smaller, non-sentient hamburgers.
