* ''LetsPlay/HoboBros'' gives us a more benign example: In the Hobo Theatre video "[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Waluigi]] and the Great Heist", [[Franchise/{{Rayman}} Globox]] swallows Waluigi to help him sneak into the bank.

* ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'' has the Devour ability, held by large animals such as dragons, Kodo beasts and dragon turtles. The victim is slowly digested unless the beast is killed, suffering no aftereffects aside from damage taken. While there is no size limit, allowing for eating creatures barely smaller (or bigger in custom maps) there is a level limit, which usually corresponds to bigger foes.

** In reptiles, Snakes are the best known predators that devour their prey whole thanks for extremely movable jaws with extra joints and ligaments, and flexible bodies, usually killing the prey first by means of constriction or venom. Although if the prey is rather small and harmless, they're just {{eaten alive}}. Other reptiles like monitor lizards can devour their preys whole.

Although if the prey is rather small and harmless, they're just {{eaten alive}}. Most snakes take their time swallowing up their prey and if they manage to eat a very large prey, they can live off of that meal for weeks or even months without needing to eat anything else. Other reptiles like monitor lizards can devour their preys whole.

For anyone else in the franchise, this is invariably fatal -- Burt only survived because the barrel kept him from being crushed and the secondary protagonist managed to both trick the Graboid into caving in its skull by charging head-first into a concrete barrier and then dig up & cut through the corpse before Burt suffocated.

Just ''mostly''.



** Why would anyone ''want'' to be Swallowed Whole by a monster? The Splat book ''The Guide to Hell'' mentions the Worm of Minauros, a unique creature that lurks in the swamps of the third layer of Hell that resembles an extra-large purple worm. If anyone tries to fight it, it might as well ''be'' an extra-large purple worm. (It also hates devils with a passion, killing any it comes across.) However, if a mortal with an alignment other than Lawful Evil approaches it with no weapons in an act of surrender, it opens it jaws allowing the creature to approach. Anyone brave enough to let himself be eaten at this point (it requires a Will Save to avoid fleeing in panic) and able to survive in its stomach for anywhere from two to seven rounds, is spit out. After that, his highest ability score is increased by 1 and he gains a bonus to experience points gained. (There's a catch, however. These bonuses tempt the recipient to evil deeds, and committing dark acts is required to keep them, or they eventually fade.)

* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'', as a D&D spin-off, naturally features pretty much everything that appears in D&D, and a few more besides.
** The Ketesthius takes this UpToEleven; it's a [[MixAndMatchCritters wolf-headed]] SeaSerpent with ''a pocket universe for a stomach'', allowing it to have entire ''cities'' living unharmed inside its guts.
** The implicitly [[WickedWitch evil-oriented]] Witch archetype called the Gingerbread Witch allows humanoid beings, even player characters, to do this as well, devouring anything as big as themselves or smaller -- the larger the meal, the bigger the BalloonBelly that results. Unsurprisingly, it appeared in a splatbook orientated towards horror gaming. Weirdly, though, aside from the initial bite attack needed to trigger the swallow whole attempt, the victim actually suffers no damage from this, although they do risk being nauseated (and thus unable to try and cut their way out) whilst inside. Perhaps because of this, it doesn't explicitly require an evil alignment, although Dungeon Masters may be leery of players who want to play the class.



* Several ''Franchise/ResidentEvil'' creatures will do this to a character, such as Yawn and Neptune in the first game, the mutant SewerGator in ''2'', Gravedigger in ''3'', the Gulp Worm in ''Code Veronica'', the Lurker in ''0'', and Del Lago in ''4''.

* Rather benign example in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''. Aqualad leads the Titans to Brother Blood's undersea base to destroy the sonic cannon he built with Cyborg's blueprints, but the T-Sub is destroyed on the way; Beast Boy gets the smart - but disgusting - idea of turning himself into a whale and swallowing the others to save them from drowning. ("Please don't tell me we're where I think we are," muses Raven. At the end of the episode, when the base is flooding and they realize they have to leave the same way, she seriously weighs that option against drowning, but takes it at the last second.)

** A stone tablet in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' relates the story of how [[WarriorPrince Prince Sidon]] of the [[FishPeople Zora]] was fighting against a giant Octorok that swallowed him whole. He escaped and killed the monster by cutting through the monster's stomach with his spear.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''
** Tyranid Mawlocs tend to do this. And their victims are still alive and conscious while they're being digested. Which didn't work out so well when one swallowed [[OurOrksAreDifferent Ghazgkhull]] [[LargeAndInCharge Thraka]], who proceeded to blast his way out of the beast and rally the orks to defeat Hivefleet Leviathan.
** The Red Terror does it as well. Both in gameplay mechanics and fluff. In fact there is a codex story devoted entirely to the subject.
** Foulspawn, a Chaos-Spawn turn Daemon of Nurgle both swallows victims whole, but [[EatBrainforMemories grows in intelligence as it consumes more victims]]

Creator/GamesWorkshop games:
** The Colossal Squig from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' and ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'' has a massively cavernous mouth that allows it to wholly devour multiple smaller creatures with a single bite. This is represented in-game by a rule that gives the monster a chance of causing unstoppable mortal wounds against the enemy.

** By lacking teeth like most of the mammals, Cetaceans usually swallow their prey whole. Baleen whales and beaked whales lack teeth or have very few, that use lunge and suction feeding respectively that basically is this trope. And despite the prey of a baleen whale is rather minuscule (that is plankton, small fishes or krill), all of them are swallowed whole at once.
