* The Reaper Leviathan of ''VideoGame/{{Subnautica}};; is a fearsome, best avoided beast. But as the game goes on, the once seemingly apex predator is revealed to be both the smallest of the Leviathan class beasts and ''food'' for the other members of the class.

* Invoking this trope is one of the most favourite attacks against "First Cause" arguments:\\
[-'''Atheist, Agnostic or similar Skeptic''': If God created us then who created God? And why does it have to be just God?-]
* Subverted by Anselm's Ontological Argument, which is an attempt to prove the existence of {{God}}. Its main premise is that if God, ''i.e.'', an all-powerful being, did not exist at some point, then there would have to be a bigger "fish" to bring Him into existence, and then He would not be all-powerful, and therefore not God. According to Anselm, something which exists is 'greater' than something which doesn't exist. Since we can conceive of God existing and not existing, and the existing one is 'greater', then God must exist since he is the 'greatest' possible being we can conceive.

* In ''TabletopGame/SentinelsOfTheMultiverse'', the Environment deck can lead to various critters finishing off the supervillain you're fighting. For example, if you can get the villain down to 1-2HP, they can be considered the "target with the lowest HP" for the Chupacabra in the Final Wasteland or the Raptor Packs in Insula Primalis. Chomp.

* Creator/AlanDeanFoster loves this trope, especially as an excuse to show off his weird alien ecologies.

* The food chain, or more accurately the food web. However, fictional depictions often [[ArtisticLicenseBiology do it wrong]] by having the bigger fish be not ''that'' much bigger than the one it takes out. In real life, a predator will rarely attack another predator that's close to its own size (aside from pack predators), because even if it's successful, the odds of getting injured are high, and thus, hunting something that can put up a credible fight is high risk for low reward.

** This is essentially what happened between ''Half-Life 1'' and ''2''. At some point after or during the AlienInvasion by Xen forces, a ''different'' alien invasion by the Combine happened. They [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomped]] both Earth and Xen forces easily, and took over the planet.

* In the second ''VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed'', upon entering the arena on Cato Neimoidia, a cutscene plays out in which a huge gate opens to reveal a [[EliteMook rancor]]. The rancor only takes a few steps forward before an absolutely enormous arm reaches out from below the arena and grabs the beast, dragging it down below. Then you're introduced to the [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever Gorog]].
