* A thief in ''[[SherlockHolmes The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle]]'' feeds a stolen gemstone to a goose so he can smuggle it home, intending to carve up the bird for dinner and retrieve the gem from its crop.
* In the ''Discworld'' novel "Sourcery", Rincewind meets a thief who stole some jewels taken by the leader of the Thieves' Guild. The interesting part? The leader had swallowed the jewels at the time. So, the leader knew full well who stole them, since only that thief was THAT good.
* In the novel ''[[KnownSpace Destroyer Of Worlds]]'', when a Pak is taken prisoner, it hides one of its devices from a search by swallowing the device. When it retrieves the device later, the device's surface is pitted and slightly damaged from the stomach acids. However, the device functions. Nonetheless, the Pak believes it will not survive another trip through its stomach.

Some people and creatures can use their stomach to keep stuff within, sometimes [[BagOfHolding more than would comfortably fit in there]]. (Of course, it helps if they can gag it all back up when necessary.) It can be small, or it can be bumped up to being larger than the character themselves. Handy and unlikely to be found by frisking, if quite disgusting.

The acidic action of digestive juices rarely come into play.

Usually they can also bring the character themselves. items back up on command, and can somehow choose the exact item they want to bring up despite carrying around fifty things. Either that, or they ''can't'' choose, and are subject to an OverlyLongGag where they have to keep coughing up increasingly strange items until finally getting the right one by luck. [[RuleOfFunny Whatever is funnier for the current situation]].

* ''[[Manga/MyHeroAcademia Tsuyu]]'' has this as part of her frog powers.

* Rico from ''WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar''. As well as 'small' things like lit dynamite, bombs, bowling pins, and a running chainsaw, it is also revealed that he has an elevator and a spiral staircase for getting to the bottom. His stomach can safely hold Mort too. He once choked up a ground-to-air missile and launching platform.

* In ''[[Anime/YuYuHakusho]]'', when Yukina gives him a very valuable OrphansPlotTrinket, Hiei asks her how she kept the jewel dealer who imprisoned her in her debut from stealing it. She answers that she hid it in stomach, quickly reassuring him that she's cleaned it since then. Hiei concludes that someone is hiding his matching trinket the same way when he wonders why he can't find it with his Jagan eye, and it turns out Mukuro is.

* Apparently this is something youkai in ''Manga/YuYuHakusho''-[[TheVerse verse]] can do to hide things, even from scrying attempts, but it's never elaborated on.

* In ''VideoGame/ {{Heroes of the Storm}}'', one of the heroes, Stitches, can eat an enemy and regurgitate him after a few seconds, allowing his group to focus the target down. He actually does this through the huge maw he has in his belly.

* VideoGame/{{Kirby}} has this in ''Squeak Squad'', allowing him to store various powers or recovery items, among others.
** Other Kirby games have a lesser version of this trope; after sucking up an enemy, he can carry them around before spitting them out or swallowing them.

* Benedict the [[BirdPeople hawk man]] from ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'' has a stomach of holding. Best shown in his "Regurgirocket" taunt wherein he regurgitates a rocket. He pretty much stores his rockets in his gut only to puke them back out later when he needs a reload, kinda like the manner of how real life birds would store food in their guts only to puke it all out later to feed their young. Supporting this is the fact that there's nothing in his attire to suggest anywhere else he could possibly carry his rocket reserves.
