* In ''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'', the Kliks are an extradimensional species made of spheres of inorganic matter with two arms and a mouth. Ward, the sole Klik able to speak (thanks to having eaten a TalkingWeapon) addresses dwarves/elves/humans with such niceties as "bag of floppy organs" or "pile of wet idiocy".

* There are two kinda of humans in the movie ''Film/{{Surrogates}}''. Those that use their animatronic counterparts, and those who don't. Those who do always refer to those who don't as "meatbags" as an insult because they refuse to openly embrace the cultural norm.

* The Bug "Edgar" from ''Film/MenInBlack'' uses several of these including, "monkey boy", "meat-sack", "milk-suckers", and "unevolved, undeveloped, barely conscious pond scum totally convinced of their own superiority as they scurry about their short pointless lives." Agent K comments on the Bug's "massive inferiority complex" at one point.

When humans are referred to as "meatbags" or as otherwise meaty things by non-meaty beings. Another, equally valid, version, largely in the case of aliens, is that the term is used not as an intentional slur, but simply to express shock or novelty, or because the alien does not have another term sufficient to describe us. These examples still count as this trope because they may still be interpreted as insults by humans (including the audience). In fact, this may be played for laughs.
