* The title of the final chapter of ''FinalFantasyIVTheAfterYears''. The actual event taking place during it is less about eating planets and more about [[spoiler:[[ColonyDrop crashing meteors and the moon into them]]]], though.

* Dark Phoenix in ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' proved even more dangerous than Galactus considering she got sustenance from stars, causing them to go nova, which destroyed one populated planet. The Shi'ar and their allies realize that while Galactus is bad enough, having a menace that destroys ''whole solar systems'' is something they have to move against at any cost. And eating stars is only the beginning; Dark Phoenix had the potential to destroy ''the entire universe'', and in some alternate continuities it ''did''.

** The canon lore anthology ''Chronicles'' solidifies their story as well as the Titans. Titans began life as planets which eventually hatch into new Titans, making them basically [[PlanetaryParasite Planet Parasites]] themselves. The Old Gods were created by the Void Lords and hurled randomly into space hoping at least one set of them would impact on a Titan Embryo, allowing them to corrupt a Titan into their ultimate warrior of destruction (full grown Titans were too strong with The Light to be corrupted). Meaning they don't consume the planet in a traditional sense, but just consume it with corruption for when it hatches on its own.[[note]]Turns out Azeroth is the most powerful Titan embryo ever discovered. The Arcane Energies of the Well of Eternity are its blood poring from a gaping wound where the Titans ripped an Old God from the surface. An act that made them fear removing the rest would kill the unborn Titan. Thus making them seal them instead and hope for the best. Sargeras is so fixed on destroying Azeroth (and the rest of the universe) because he fears what a corrupted Void Titan would be capable of and believes [[WellIntentionedExtremist wiping out all life and resetting the universe to be preferable]].[[/note]]

Subtrope of PlanetDestroyer (because a being who eats planets for breakfast would also have the necessary strength to destroy it).

* Unicron from ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' is the other TropeMaker, starting with ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie'' (1986), where his first appearance doubles as his [[DoomedHometown first meal]] and the animated film's opening scene. ApocalypseWow! Depending on continuity, he's also more evil than Galactus: as a [[GodOfEvil dark god]] in a [[OurGodsAreDifferent crunchy robot shell]], Unicron doesn't actually ''need'' to eat anything. He just considers the mere existence of [[strike:life in]] the universe to be a personal affront against him. Incidentally, he is [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial most definitely not]] to be [[CaptainErsatz confused with Galactus]] (although Marvel may have had a hand in ''The Transformers: The Movie'', and was publishing the ''Transformers'' comic at the time).

* 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 ''WesternAnimation/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.

* Near the end of some stars' life cycles, they will expand and envelop nearby bodies, including planets. This is the likely end of Mercury and Venus, considering the type of star we orbit. Earth is an open question; some astronomers suggest that the sun won't quite reach earth's orbit of the time (somewhat farther out than now).

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, Alduin is the [[DragonsAreDemonic draconic]] BeastOfTheApocalypse and has the title of "World-Eater". It is his divinely mandated duty to "[[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt eat the world]]" at the end of every "kalpa" ([[EternalRecurrence cycle of time]]) so that it can be remade anew. In ''The Seven Fights of the Aldudagga'', he is described as a [[EldritchAbomination titanic monster]] with divine power even beyond that of the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Princes]]. He is also described as exhaling entire farms out of his nose and dwarfing even the Throat of the World itself.
