* The talking/non-talking roles were reversed for morbidly comic effect in ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'', with a grisly little reference to ''TheFly'': a bug caught in a spiderweb screams "Help meee! Help meee!" in a tiny voice, then is promptly eaten by the spider.

* In the early WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse cartoon ''Ye Olden Days'', the royal court is made up of Clarabelle Cow and several nameless pig footmen in addition to other anthropomorphic farm animals. When the King calls for the royal feast, some of the first foods to emerge from the kitchen are a whole roast boar and bull. Now, the Anthro cows and pigs are shown eating spaghetti and soup but, really, that's right out of ''Film/SilenceOfTheLambs''.

* In ''LiloAndStitch'', Lilo feeds Pudge (a pufferfish) peanut-butter sandwiches because if she fed him tuna sandwiches, "I'd be an ABOMINATION!" Pudge would probably get a great deal of vindictive satisfaction from eating a large piscivore, but Lilo is five and wouldn't be expected to realize that.

* Stick around after the end credits of ''Disney/BrotherBear'' and you'll see a deliciously nasty subversion of the "it's still okay to eat fish" approach.

* Stick around after the end credits of ''Disney/BrotherBear'' plays NoCartoonFish straight during almost all the movie, and you'll see a deliciously nasty subversion the end of the "it's still okay main characters' journey takes place at a salmon fishing pond for all visiting bears. However, TheStinger after the end credits subverts this with glee: Koda gives a disclaimer stating no animals were harmed in the making of the movie, only to see Kenai chasing a salmon swimming as fast as it can while screaming, "Help! He's going to eat fish" approach.me!" Koda promptly covers the camera.

** Painfully averted in an early script of the movie that would eventually become ''The Lion King''. Two of Simba's friends are are aardvark and a zebra, Daabi and Lemuta. Lemuta and Simba are playing when they see Simba's parents hunt a zebra, who happens to be Lemuta's mother. She escapes but that makes Lemuta notice that their little "games" are preparing for something different and it changes their bond considerably.

** The trope is also subverted later on. At one point a character points out that whales only eat krill, which most people don't think of as being a "creature" and thus whales are often not thought of as carnivores (as opposed to say "Killer Whales"). Immediately a swarm of krill pass through the scene, screaming and swimming for their live' as a whale tries to eat them.

* Addressed in ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo''. Nemo is introduced to a Pelican who makes an apology to Nemo on the off chance that he had ever tried to eat him in the past. Apparently, predators only eat prey animals they're not on a first-name basis with. Which makes sense, one with pet fish usually won't go after them for food, and many people keep farm animals as pets without going vegetarian.

Pufferfish mainly eat invertebrates in real life.

Added DiffLines:
*** Donald rejecting the idea of roast duck makes perfect sense-humans, generally speaking, don't eat apes, but most of us are fine with eating beef despite being mammals.

** Also, carnivorism among sharks is rendered as similar to alcoholism, and the sharks in the movie belong to a "Sharks Anonymous" group. The question of what they're supposed to eat instead is completely ignored.
