* Played with horrifyingly in the first arc of ''{{Hellblazer}}'' when John Constantine has to stop Memnoth, a Hunger demon which is loose in New York. Said demon kills his victims by cursing them with an insatiable hunger for a ''non-food item'', usually something valuable that the person covets, such as jewels, rare comics, etc. In one case, he makes a bodybuilder eats his own ARM in an attempt to sate his hunger. If the victim doesnt suffocate from trying to swallow solid items, they die when their bodies consume themselves from Memnoths possession.

* The Eruptodon from ''WesternAnimation/DragonsRidersOfBerk'' is a Titan-wing Boulder-class dragon that must constantly feed, its primary diet being volcanic lava. If it goes without feeding for very long, it becomes insatiable until it dies of starvation.

* ComicBook/{{Venom}}'s Ultimate counterpart was created to be a protoplasmic cure for cancer, but in its incomplete, weaponized state it is ravenously hungry for flesh and drives its hosts to devour anything and anyone around it.

* In ''{{Animorphs}}'', the Taxxons have an endless hunger that drives them to eat their own wounded (as well as anything else they can get their mouths on). Many Taxxons willingly became Controllers because being part of the Yeerks' forces meant they would have the power to hunt and eat more prey. Their hunger is so powerful that not even the Yeerks can stop it. The Yeerk that would become Visser Three refused to become a Taxxon Controller because he didn't want to live with that hunger.

[[AC:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'': Majin Buu, in his "fat" form, is quite malicious but really only cares about candy. The number of people he killed ''without'' eating them can be counted on one hand.
* Gluttony the Homunculus in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' is technically a bad guy, but he's really more of a mentally-deranged kid with ExtremeOmnivore tendencies.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'''s Luffy only thinks about one thing outside fights and that is food.

[[AC:Film]]
* The alien slugs in ''Film/{{Slither}}'' can turn people into this. It's implied the first woman it infects eats her own baby.
* Pizza, The Hut from the movie ''Film/SpaceBalls'' is always eating. And when locked in his car, he eats himself to death
* Kaa for Disney's adaptation of ''Disney/TheJungleBook'' seems to apply. He's rather affable and, unlike Shere Khan, not a wrathful active villain (one episode of ''Jungle Cubs'' even shown him to be an outright FriendToAllLivingThings the rare time he is full) but he is constantly setting his hypnotic eyes on a new morsel, making him a danger to the protagonists.

[[AC:{{Theater}}]]
* In the play of ''Theater/{{Metamorphoses}}'', Ceres curses Erysichthon with an insatiable hunger. He eats everything he can. Sells his possessions and then tries to sell his own mother for food, and then eventually eats himself.

[[AC:VideoGames]]
* The demon Gorgoth in ''VideoGame/{{Arcanum}}'' is cursed with insatiable hunger, and was banished to [[SealedEvilInACan the Void]] when he chowed down on a halfling village and no one could think of anything better to do with him. Recruiting him into your party and keeping him loyal requires you to keep him fed with a steady supply of lizard carcasses.
* In ''VideoGame/CommanderKeen'' the Dopefish - the second dumbest creature in the universe - has a thought process that goes, "Swim swim hungry. Swim swim hungry."
* Quina of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' is always on the lookout for new food to try and will eat, or express interest in eating, anything, including at one point, a rock.
* The Heartless in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts'' act all out of instict, and their instinct is to get hearts to eat. Nothing more.
* VideoGame/{{Kirby}} is seen as a hero, and yet more than once he saved the world by accident, looking for a cake or something similar.
* Kog'maw, a ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' champion, attack only using his gastric acid. It's stated he spit acid on stuff because he can't swallow them whole (yet), meaning anyone he spits on ''is a potential breakfast''. And because it's a baby, he doesn't even understand good and evil.
** Same with Cho'Gath, except that Cho actually is ChaoticEvil, too. It is an EldritchAbomination in constant hunger, devouring anything coming too close to its claws. And its main objective is to bring its species to join the feast.
* VideoGame/TheMaw's entire purpose is to eat everything, to the level of a CosmicHorror.
* The Spirit Eater Curse from ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2: Mask of the Betrayer'' is built around this trope. The Spirit Eater is a horrific demi-godlike entity that turns the host into an insatiable devourer of spirits, fey, and the dark energy of the undead. The curse becomes so strong that it eventually consumes the soul of the host; destroying the very essence of their existence and leaving only an empty corpse behind. The eater has consumed countless spirits for generations, and the PlayerCharacter can use it ForTheEvulz. It devours all life in the Forgotten Realms and a couple other planes. The gods band together to fight it and it [[KilledOffForReal literally eats half of them]] before they bring it down. (It's even implied that the Betrayer didn't truly die from the wrath of a dozen gods.)
** An [[YouKeepUsingThatWord ironic]] thing about it is that Myrkul, the god who created the curse can be [[KilledOffForReal eaten by it.]] D&D gods are virtually unkillable, they just partially fade away. The spirit eater completely destroyed them.
* The VideoGame/{{Pokemon}} Munchlax.
* The Gobblers from ''VideoGame/{{Wizard 101}}'' definitely apply. They are {{Extreme Omnivore}}s that continue to eat buildings even after they are fed a potion that is suppose to both magically and chemically trigger the gag reflex.

[[AC:WebOriginal]]
* ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' turns Goku into this.

[[AC:WesternAnimation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers'' did this in an episode where a kid somehow got cloned. The clones were all ravenously hungry and the more they ate, the more they multiplied. There were many repeated "we are hungry" cries while the Planeteers worked to undo it. It was possibly an overpopulation lesson.

''Nothing'' can convince them ''not'' to eat everything they can reach... except maybe another OneTrackMindedHunger character. Most of the time, it's NOT a good idea to stand between them and their food unless you're a {{Badass}}.
