* In ''Das Dorf der Mörder'' (Roughly translates to "The Village of Murderers") by Elisabeth Herrmann, a man is murdered by being sedated and fed to a group of peccary pigs. It is described only from the perspective of the police and the pathologist, but that's gruesome enough because, of course, they diligently analyse the drugs used and conclude that the man was fully aware of what was happening.

Being eaten alive. Probably one of our oldest {{Primal Fear}}s, and quite universal, given that we have long shared this planet with some rather nasty predators. For those of us who live in parts of the world where most wild land predators are extinct or endangered, this isn't the threat it used to be, but stories of monsters of all kinds ([[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]], {{alien|Tropes}}s, [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demons]], {{zombie|Apocalypse}}s, etc.) keep us very aware that we can become prey quite easily. It's probably the most common fear we have as kids.

In this modern world, we have little to fear from most animals on land (though the sea is another matter), but stories of monsters of all kinds ([[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]], {{alien|Tropes}}s, [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demons]], {{zombie|Apocalypse}}s, etc.) keep us very aware that we can become prey quite easily.

* The end of ECComics, "Carrion Death!" (''Shock [=SuspenStories=]'' #9) does a good job of capturing this PrimalFear:

* ''Franchise/StarWars episode VI Return of the Jedi'' Oola, and a Gammorean Guard get eaten by a Rancor. And the Skiff guards and even poor Boba Fett got eaten by a Sarlaac as well. (Most people don't think he died anyway though).

* The fate of anyone unfortunate enough to get caught by the scarab swarms in ''[[Film/TheMummyTrilogy The Mummy]]''. And the little pests are damn quick at it.
** Imhotep only escapes this fate (which was part of him being entombed alive at the beginning of the movie) due to being cursed with immortality.

* This trope happens to plants all the time, as most herbivores don't consume the entire plant, just preferred parts of them. Some plants fight back against this trope with thorns, tough outer coatings, and toxic or indigestible substances, but fruiting plants exploit it by purposefully coating their seeds with expendable nutrient-rich tissues that seed-dispersing animals will eat.
