* In the early WarnerBros. cartoon ''WesternAnimation/PigsIsPigs'', a young pig explodes from voluntary overeating, but it's AllJustADream. When he wakes up, [[AesopAmnesia he goes right back to massive eating.]]

** A similar fate befalls Count Batula. After having a vampirized Conker drop townsfolk into a giant meat grinder for him to drink the LudicrousGibs, he drinks far too much and becomes so overweight he falls from the ceiling he was hanging from right into the same meat grinder.

Added DiffLines:

* This fate is narrowly adverted in ''Manga/{{Drifters}}''. After liberating the starved and enslaved dwarves, Oda Nobunaga hears how they've begun to feast and quickly issues orders to slow them down and prevent them from gorging, as he seems familiar with refeeding syndrome.

* ''Film/MontyPythonsTheMeaningOfLife'': Mr Creosote REALLY shouldn't have had that last thin mint, even if it was just [[WaferThinMint "wafer-thin"]]. He survives, somehow.

* In ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}'', Lone Star and Barf learn from a news broadcast that crime lord Pizza the Hutt (to whom they owe 1 million space-bucks) recently became trapped in his limousine and ate himself to death. Since he's an anthropomorphic pizza alien, [[AutoCannibalism make of it what you will.]]

* The upwardly mobile villain of ''WesternAnimation/TheBoxtrolls'', Archibald Snatcher, is obsessed with cheese-eating as a sign of status even though he has a violent allergy that causes him to swell up and develop a nasty rash. [[PostClimaxConfrontation At the film's end]], he blackmails his way into Lord Portley-Rind's tasting-room and, despite already suffering from a nasty "cheese fit" after [[ItMakesSenseInContext landing on a giant wheel of Brie]], devours a sample of Portley-Rind's rarest cheese. After a DelayedReaction long enough for Snatcher to [[FeigningIntelligence feign cheese-expertise]], a DistantReactionShot shows he messily exploded in a cloud of cheese-y mist.

Compare BalloonBelly. May turn into a case of DeathByIrony, particularly since the entire point of eating is to keep oneself ''alive''. For an extremely [[FatBastard unsympathetic]] [[VillainousGlutton gluttonous]] character this may be used as a KarmicDeath as a way to have their biggest vice bite them in the ass, so to speak.

* The ''[[ECComics Tales From the Crypt]]'' story "Telescope" has a starving man on a desert island who tries to eat a rat when it's busy eating a gull that swooped down for a fish. Shortly thereafter he's eaten by a shark. The final panel, when some fishermen catch the shark, explains the title as the head of each creature is hanging out of the mouth of the one that ate it!

* Also Yakon from ''DragonBallZ'' dies when eating too much of Goku's Super Saiyan energy. In a bit of a twist on the trope, Yakon didn't so much eat himself to death as Goku took advantage of how Yakon was consuming his energy by drastically increasing how much energy he was outputting, overloading Yakon all at once.
