* These ants manage to strip away an entire gecko into a skeleton in a few hours: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3Mt2E1M6dU
* Any carrion eating animals (vultures, ants, maggots) will do this, which is why scavenger beetles are used to clean bones for museums.

* Some of the Kromagg weapons in ''{{Sliders}}'' leave behind a crumbling skeleton. Shame, considering their preference for [[IAmAHumanitarian human eyes]].

* Happens to [[StrontiumDog Johnny Alpha]] at the end of ''The Final Solution'', though the bones are not exactly bleached white and do collapse into a pile once the monster releases its grasp. However, the recent ''Death And Life Of Johnny Alpha'' has {{retcon}}ned this into something that Feral just said happened.

* In the second ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'' film, there are tooth fairies that do this. Although, in this case, it's done specifically so they ''can devour the bones themselves''.

* In ''[[Film/{{Transformers}} Transformers: Dark of the Moon]]'', it's shown that Cybertronian weaponry does this to humans. Which makes sense, really, given that they're designed to damage giant, metallic beings; it's no surprise that they'd rip through soft tissue like nothing. Notably, the blast force also blows the skeletons apart, leading to a brief but gruesome shot of a NEST trooper's bones flying through the air as a Decepticon blasts him with his laser rifle.

* ''Film/{{Critters}} 2'' near the climax a man falls and is run over by a Crite Ball. His twitching skeleton is a rare example where it's not picked clean, to dramatic effect ([[http://horrordaily.com/2011/07/11/monster-mondays-krites/ See description and before/after images ... or don't]]).

* A SecretSix (second version, after the 60's originals but before the anti-villain incarnations)story from the late 80's in Action Comics Weekly (briefly an anthology series) had a corporation set a very corrosive cloud of acid rain over a small town, hoping to sell people protection from this 'new threat' later on. In the opener, the rain begins to fall; two teen girls part ways and try to make it home. One clearly does not. She passes out on the sidewalk, and the next panel shows she has been skeletonized; the next panel shows she is gone entirely, and the plot tells that the whole town was lost, though if everyone met her exact fate is never revealed.
