* ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' has a few examples of Franchise/{{Transformers}} eating things. Perhaps most notoriously, the incident with Rhinox and the wild bean vines.
** Tarantulas is known to prey on local animals, and once even attempted to eat ''Cheetor''.

This is very common for a RidiculouslyHumanRobot who may need to eat food to maintain TheMasquerade, but it's certainly not limited to that trope. Some robots consume food as a power source ([[TruthInTelevision Calories powering machines is something that exists in the real world, though in very early stages]]) either for convenience or rarely for horror. Other robots may [[EatingOptional eat food they have no way of processing and no logical need for]] as pure RuleOfFunny hedonism and to anthropomorphize otherwise non-human machines. Despite being unable to digest food, don't be surprised if caffeine, sugar, or alcohol still somehow affects a robot's behavior.
