* Double-subverted in ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'', Xeno Team is approaching a group of large stick-like alien creatures that appear to be eating moss, Ebbirnoth cautious the rest that herbivores can still be dangerous, and [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2013-06-15 then]] it turns out the big things are actually carnivorous.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' pretty much everyone's a herbivore of some sort. This is pointed out in "Over a Barrel" when Pinkie Pie tries using it to create some common ground between some settler ponies and buffalo.
-->'''Pinkie Pie:''' Both our diets, I should mention\\
Are completely vegetarian\\
We both eat hay and oats\\
Why be at each others' throats?
** Spike the gem-eating dragon also gets a pass for [[EatDirtCheap being a lithovore]], as it's not herbivory, but not carnivory either.
** Interestingly, in the opening of the episode "Dragonshy", FriendToAllLivingThings Fluttershy is shown feeding some otters (ferrets?) with fish, as well as giving worms to birds. While some fans think this contrasts with her character, others argue that being so close to nature means that she accepts the necessity of the circle of life.
*** There's actually some people in real life who do this, as well -- some strict vegetarians will still keep carnivorous pets even knowing that their food was made from animals (though others try to force a vegetarian diet on said pets, which can very easily go wrong).
** Crops up in the fandom more generally with the often seemingly inherent assumption that as plant-eating social animals ponies are intrinsically less aggressive or warlike, even though posturing and fighting for position and resources are as endemic to equines as most other social animals (humans included).
** A few episodes show that the ponies still have their share of jerks and bullies.
** Ponies are technically omnivores; in "Applebuck Season," Pinkie Pie mentions eggs, and in "Sisterhooves Social," Rarity makes fried eggs. By some definitions, they still qualify as vegetarian, but not as herbivorous. There's also the question of why pigs are raised.

* Spoofed in ''Series/{{Dinosaurs}}'' as the hervibores are presented as dinosaur versions of hippie pacifists and marihuana users, which becoms a problem when the son Robbie (think Lisa Simpson's version of the series) becomes hervibore.

This trope, along with PredatorsAreMean, are by far the most common approach to CarnivoreConfusion in fiction. Basically, all the villains are carnivores and all the herbivores, particularly if [[TalkingAnimal they can talk]], are heroes.
