* The Beast Planet from ''ShadowRaiders'' gets along by eating planets. Oddly, it's also an ImplacableMan... [[TheJuggernaut err]], [[GeniusLoci planet]], as it [[strike:survives several]] is completely unfazed by [+ALL+] [[HeroicSacrifice attempts at destruction]], even eating two of the heroes' planets. The Beast also produces a near-endless supply of drones who tend to kill off anyone escaping from the Beast's feeding. [[spoiler: Even in the end, they were completely unable to stop it; they had to sacrifice yet another planet to use its teleport world engine to send the Beast planet far away. [[DownerEnding However, the series ended up closing on Planet Reptizar's doomsday]]...]]
* Spoofed as Omnipotus in ''TheTick''.

* The [[spoiler:power granting Entities]] of ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' don't literally eat planets, but they do regularly obliterate them to make use of their mass energy as part of their life cycle.

->''Stan Lee thinks big. He came up with Galactus, a massive purple guy who eats entire planets. That's menacing! To get any more epic in scope, you'd have to have Andromedax, The Galaxy Who Shoots Other Galaxies With A Big, Galaxy-Sized Bazooka. Even better, Galactus isn't some sort of hand-chafing nefarious schemer. He's just very large, very hungry, and loves the great taste of ecospheres.''

[[spoiler: Around 600 million years ago, it ate the dinaurians home planet. Thanks to their subsequent attempts to 'correct' the evolutionary path of Earth, it starts making its way there.]]
