* The opening to ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}'' for the NES shows the space-Buick that Pimple and Angelina were riding getting quite literally eaten by Dark Queen's spaceship ''Gargantua''. Quite messily, too; you can see chunks of the space-car falling behind as Gargantua's jaws close down.

While certainly an [[RuleOfCool interesting]] maneuver, it does pose several problems in RealLife. For one, its success hinges upon the maw ship being much larger and much faster than its victims. For another, the very real possibility of the target performing some desperate evasive action trying to get away would pose considerable danger. Sometimes {{Tractor Beam}}s are used to speed up the chase and/or [[JustifiedTrope explain away]] why the target isn't performing any evasive actions.
