** Anime/CowboyBebop loves this trope. At other times, Faye gets sick from eating expired emergency rations ("only for the most dire of situations"!), and Ed tries to eat frozen, mercury-contaminated fish that Jet had stored as evidence.
* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'s'' Team Rocket (specifically Meowth) were reduced to this level ever since James bought Magikarp... yet they still have enough money for mechas.
** It's implied that it's ''because'' of the mechas that they're constantly reduced to this level - that and the fact that they keep ''wrecking'' the mechas. If they could just go with something less flashy, they'd probably have enough money left over to eat decently most of the time. Also, we occasionally see Ash and co. eating like this, too (or without food at all) due to being wandering trainers - and thus having no regular source of income.

* In a ''Series/GoodTimes'' episode, the Evans family has dinner with a nice old lady whom they know eats dog food for economy purposes. This creates a comically awkward moment when she brings a meatloaf for the occasion, which they naturally assume it's dog food. As a result, the Evans frantically pass the dish around on the slightest excuses, desperate to avoid eating it. In the end, she calls them on it, admitting that while she does do so herself, she would never bring such an item to dinner with friends.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' had an episode where Meg passes herself as a single mother to obtain a job at a pancake restaurant. She made up a sob story about feeding Stewie, posing as her son, dog food to obtain tips from patrons who pitied her. Unfortunatly, [[RealityEnsues social services gets involved when they get word about an infant being fed dog food]].

The inverse of ImprobableFoodBudget, and tends to pop up in a BrokeEpisode. A form of IAteWhat. Also, because they're eaten with relish, [[Franchise/ScoobyDoo Scooby Snacks]] don't count. Characters even more poor and desperate than this may be ReducedToRatburgers instead. The accidental version is EatingPetFood. EatTheDog cuts out the middleman.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' has canned dog food as a consumable.

to:

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' has canned dog food as a consumable. Labeled "Doghouse beef stew dog feed" Nate/Nora can eat it for 10 hitpoints (but it also gives them +2 radiation) or they can use it as intended with the Wasteland Workshop DLC and use it to bait dog cages. Nowhere in the game can you give it to ''your'' dog however, only stimpaks for [[LegacyCharacter Dogmeat]].

Note that there still ''are'' some FDA standards for pet food specifically because it was known that human beings do eat pet food sometimes due to cost issues. Actually, before the manufacturers got the idea of pulling out even the marginal meat and selling it, pet food used to have considerably more nutritional value than it does now.

* In ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'', dwarves will eat rats and bugs if they can't get real food.
** In addition, dogs serve as a decent food source.

* [[Franchise/ScoobyDoo Shaggy Rogers]], probably. It's never actually explained if Scooby Snacks are dog treats or human snacks, but the former seems most likely.
