* Played for horror in issue #33 of ''ComicBook/GrimmFairyTales'', which adapts the obscure fairytale "The Three Snake Leaves". [[spoiler: A scientist uses a snake-based elixir to cure his wife's fatal cancer, after being given a copy of a book containing this fairytale. Unfortunately for him, the book-giver is Belinda, the evil "Storyteller", and his wife, like the wife in the story, is overwhelmed by the instincts of the snake. Worse, just after reading this part of the story, he gets a call from the man who sold him the snake, explaining that he was given a snake-eating, offspring-cannibalizing king snake, rather than the intended coral snake. There is a HopeSpot when he sees his eldest son is alright once he rushes home... but the last panel shows he was too late to save his youngest son.]]

* The end of ''Film/{{Shrek}}'' features Dragon bursting into the chapel of Lord Farquaad's castle and snapping him up pretty quickly [[ShutUpHannibal while he's making a speech about how he will have control of his kingdom]]. The movie itself doesn't make it apparent, but some of the bonus material establishes that Lord Farquaad is whole and somehow managing to stay alive inside of Dragon's stomach. The 4D attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood had it that he later died inside Dragon and comes back as a ghost.

* ''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.
