* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'': This trope is one of the very few things Orks genuinely fear. During the Third War for Armageddon, seeing the Flesh Tearers SpaceMarines fall prey to their bloodlust and start devouring their enemies had the almost unprecedented effect of shattering the Orks' morale so throughly that they fled the battlefield.

** The last phase of a Tyranid invasion involves the hive fleet sending out trillions upon trillions of Ripper swarms; tiny worm-like tyranid lifeforms who's only purpose is to eat biomatter so that it may be consumed by the fleet. Most imperial guardsmen are known to commit suicide if they live to this stage, as the Rippers will happily devour anyone and anything even if they're still alive. Worse still, they'll take their time but will immobilize their foes; leaving you to agonize at their jaws while being completely unable to do anything about it. The Rippers themselves are then eaten alive in-turn when they toss themselves into the digestion pools, which melts them down into a meat slurry to be funneled up to the hive ships to produce more tyranid bioforms and continue the cycle.
** Some Tyranid weapons ''weaponize this''. The basic fleshborer's name is ''not'' a euphanism; it fires a tiny black maggot that finds any crack in your armor or soft cloth and digs in straight through you. The entire process lasts about a few seconds but it's devastating enough to be comparable to a bolter round (which is a rocket propelled grenade) in lethality. The aptly named Devourer does something similar (and resembles an infested, swollen penis head to boot). At the far end of the spectrum, there's the Red Terror and Mawloc, who just straight up devour anyone unlucky enough to not get out of their way (the Mawloc is suspected to be made from the Red Terror, who might be a "prototype").

* And another ''Star Wars'' example in ''VideoGame/JediKnightDarkForcesII'' expansion, ''Mysteries of the Sith''. Mara is stripped of her weapons and fed to a Rancor, which will eat her as a OneHitKill if she gets too close.

Super-trope of DevouredByTheHorde, where a character is eaten alive by multiple parties. Compare and contrast StewedAlive, which is usually PlayedForLaughs and involves BlackComedyCannibalism. When done pragmatically, you have EatingTheEnemy.

* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', if you are a human who comes into contact with a Titan, chances are this is going to be how you die. They don't ''need'' to eat you to survive, but that won't stop them from doing it.

[[spoiler: Then there's the power of the Nine Titans, which is passed on when the current host is eaten by another Titan. Since the power comes with a 13 year time limit, eventually the owner will have to submit to being eaten so someone can inherit their powers]].

* The final boss of ''VideoGame/{{Boktai}} 2: Solar Boy Django'' has an attack where he grabs you in his mouth and chews, steadily depleting your health. If you don't quickly escape, however, he'll soon swallow resulting in an instant GameOver regardless of your remaining health.
