* Humorously attempted by Jon Arbuckle with his pet ComicStrip/{{Garfield}} when he gives him so much food to eat that he would burst. Of course, this being Garfield, the cat survives unaffected and he even asks Jon if he's going to eat whatever food he's eating at the moment.

* The ''[[Creator/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!

** 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.

* 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.
