**In the [[ThatOneLevel Weeping City of Maach]], Ozma will [[AnotherDimension swallow the raid]], which will force the raid to burn down the Mobs and Ozmashade before the meteor hits, causing a total [[RaidWipe Raid Wipe.]] Bonus points if you notice that Ozma's location is in the [[AccidentalInnuendo 'Gloriole' when you're 'swallowed.']]

* Myth/AztecMythology has Quetzalcoatl. Befitting his status as a giant snake, he has been depicted swallowing a person whole (albeit with precious little context as to ''why'', considering he's supposed to be one of their nicer deities).

* In ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' the first boss of the game, Hooktail is notorious for swallowing its victims whole. When Hooktail is low on health it will replenish by eating the audience. The audience members can escape, though as every hit Mario or his partner delivers causes Hooktail to spit some out. After Hooktail is defeated it spits out Koops's father who had previously been thought to be dead. Koops's father somehow survived ten years in the dragon's belly.

* Borrok the Devourer is a very tough boss in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' who can OTK a player with its Devour Player skill. (Of course, Borrok is a PuzzleBoss who you aren't supposed to attack directly, and should you manage to actually kill it, you get nothing. The objective is to subdue the ogres so that it eats them instead, until it coughs up a Devourer's Gutstone.)

* In ''[[Creator/JudyBlume Tales of a Fourth-Grade Nothing]]'', Peter's pet turtle Dribble is swallowed alive by his little brother Fudge. It doesn't survive of course, but Peter's first question upon learning that the turtle is out of Fudge's system is if it's alive or dead, as he'd [[RealityIsUnrealistic hoped this trope might apply]].

* "Literature/LittleRedRidingHood", in the younger versions at least -- there are a couple older variants where the wolf carves up grandma and lil' Red (and they, hardly surprising, don't get out alive).
* "Literature/TheWolfAndTheSevenYoungKids": The wolf devoures all of Mother Goat's children, but they are rescued in the same way Little Red Riding Hood and her Grandma are saved.
* "Literature/TheDragonSlicedInTwo": In this Swiss fairy tale, a clever young shepherd named Juri tricks a brutish but gullible giant into believing that he is as strong as him, and to help kill a ferocious dragon to stop it from eating a princess. Unfortunately, Juri gets swallowed alive by the dragon, but as he tries to hack his way out of its belly with a knife, the giant kills it with a blow on its spine that causes it to split in two, freeing the hero, who through some more fast talking cons the giant into thinking they killed it together; the giant outside, the hero inside!

** Most of the bosses in ''YoshisIsland'' get zapped by [[TheDragon Kamek]] before the fight starts, making them bigger and stronger. For the world 3 miniboss, though, Kamek zaps Yoshi and Baby Mario, shrinking them down to a convenient bite-size for Prince Froggy to eat. You beat the boss by attacking its uvula with eggs you make from other enemies the boss eats.

** Boss-Boss-Cheep-Cheep (not truly a Boss, but at very least an EliteMook can do this to Mario in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'', and it's an OTK if it does. There's also a nastier-looking version of this guy in ''VideoGame/SuperMario64''
