** Bloat, a pufferfish, sharing a tank with Jacques, a Pacific cleaner shrimp (even though pufferfish mainly eat crustaceans in real life) ''seems'' like a classic case of this, but it really isn't. Real cleaner shrimp feed on parasites that infest the scales and gills of fish--even large predatory ones such as sharks. Their bright red and white colors let their prospective clients identify them, so even fish that normally eat shrimp do not attack them.

Many owners of saltwater aquariums keep cleaner shrimp for that very purpose.

* ''{{Disney/Zootopia}}'' finds some interesting ways to explore this issue. Because only ''mammals'' are anthropomorphized in this setting and the creative team confirmed that fish and insects are a non-evolved, non-sapient food source, obligate carnivores have plenty of guilt-free options to sustain them. On the other hand, in this setting the anthropomorphic mammals [[HollywoodEvolution evolved]] from normal wild animals which did previously eat each other. Prey species haven't forgotten the bad old days, and that historical tension leads to some serious social issues regarding Bias and FantasticRacism.

** Of course, the island's inhabitants are also shown to be kind of {{Jerk Ass}}es, so...
