* 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.
