** Jenova's motives and nature can actually be summed up pretty easily: It's an infectious agent, not really a life form, that lands on a host planet and subverts it in order to reproduce and spread. In the real world we've got something that behaves in almost the exact same manner. We call it a ''Virus''.

* One of the two {{Trope Maker}}s is ComicBook/{{Galactus}}, from the MarvelUniverse. His appearance has varied significantly. In main universe, he's a [[WordOfGod non-abstract]] [[CosmicEntity universal function]] that resembles a giant of the same species as any viewer but a hundred times bigger, in UltimateMarvel he's a swarm of robots that both needs to eat planets and hates organic life, and in the second ''Film/FantasticFour'' movie he's a formless mass [[spoiler:although if you look ''really'' closely, you can make out Galactus's helmet within the swirling clouds at its core]].

* Unicron is legendary for this, and could count as a third TropeMaker, as he does this in almost every incarnation of the character save for TransformersPrime. Unicron's first appearance in TheTransformersTheMovie back in 1986 establishes very deliberately what he feeds on and is seemingly powered by. The G1 comics expand on this to extreme levels, initially claiming he's a Dark God who is now trapped in a body not his own who has managed to make the best of it. Other comics have taken different paths for his origin, but his modus operands is usually the same 99 percent of the time.

* The monstrous plant Kaiba from the anime series ''Anime/{{Kaiba}}'' consumes planets in addition to the memories of their inhabitants. At least two characters think this is a good thing, viewing it as a form of {{Instrumentality}}.
