* 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.

* "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!

* In ''[[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]].

* One MonsterOfTheWeek on MightyMorphinPowerRangers who was serious NightmareFuel for young viewers was the Terror Toad, who was able to do this to the entire team except Kimberly; at the last moment, she was able to make him cough them up. A lesser known monster who could do this was [[ManEatingPlant the Invenusable Flytrap]]; in that case, Jason, Zach, Kimberly, and Billy were [[TooSpicyForYogSothoth able to blast their way out.]]

* Some monsters in ''ScienceGirls'' will swallow one of the characters and have to be fought in order to release her. At one point, the whole party gets scooped up together and then has to force the monster to spit them back out.

[[LeeroyJenkins He then charges into battle with a dragon,]] which promptly swallows the truck whole. After about a second, the dragon's belly explodes and the truck emerges with the dragon's heart in the bed.

* The boss fight concluding the Dark Ice Mines stage in Star Fox Adventures involves an enormous reptillian centaur swallowing Fox whole.

** 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''

* Most characters in ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' have a unique death animation for when their hit points hit zero. The sole way to deviate from this is to be killed by [[FishPeople Fizz's]] ultimate attack, ''Chum the Waters.'' The attack summons a gigantic [[FedToTheBeast shark]] from the ground, dealing heavy damage to one target and knocking everyone else away. If the intended victim is small enough, such as [[LittleMissBadass a child]] or [[PettingZooPeople a yordle,]] no corpse is left behind as the shark returns underground with the champion devoured.

Whales are ''[[AnimalStereotypes commonly invoked by writers]]'' for this trope across various media, simply because the huge sea mammals were poorly understood for most of human history. Many cultures, even those that have hunted them, hold the cetaceans in awe and feature them in their mythologies. [[OlderThanDirt Stories of whales destroying ships and swallowing humans are often heard in many folklores tales,]] even though nowadays we know Whales [[GentleGiant are generally shy and easily spooked by people]]. Not to mention that, despite their immensity, [[RealityIsUnrealistic it's biologically impossible]] for one to devour large prey such as us. Despite all this, whales are still used, since they continue to captivate the imagination. [[SpaceWhale Oceans are not required]].

This may be a case of [[EatTheBomb Explosive Indigestion]]. When the hero himself simply proves to be inedible, it's TooSpicyForYogSothoth.

* The first time SpiderMan meets Mattie Franklin, the third ComicBook/SpiderWoman, they both arrive to fight one of the Mole Man's giant monsters, who swallows Mattie when she's distracted; only for her, to Spidey's shock, to start beating the monster up ''from the inside'' until it coughs her up.
