* Arguably the most horrific example occurs in the second book of ''Literature/MichaelVey''; when [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Dr. Hatch]] shows off his [[ItMakesSenseInContext giant rat-powered electricity generator]] to his [[TykeBomb electric children]], he makes special note of the bowl's feeding conveyor belt. He puts Elgen guards who have failed him onto the conveyor belt to be fed to the rats. The process is horrific[[spoiler:, as Taylor and the captured Electroclan can vouch for [[DarkestHour during Book 7]]]]; Hatch claims that the rats will jump like piranhas onto their next victim, so one doesn't even have to reach the end to die or see themselves disemboweled. And he keeps finding ways to make the process even more painful. [[spoiler:Michael Vey is sent into the bowl during Book 2, but he survives because the electricity generated by it gives him a giant boost in power; he incinerates the rats and frees himself.]]
