* In ''VideoGame/DungeonKeeper II'', you can sacrifice your minions in a Temple to receive boons from the Dark Gods. Throwing one of the gleefully sadomasochistic Dark Mistresses into the sacrificial pool gets you nothing but shock and outrage from your EvilMentor that you'd offend the Gods with such blasphemy.

* ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'': In Dark Crusade's Chaos stronghold level, Eliphas the Inheritor uses his sorcery to mind-speak with the enemy commander to unnerve or scare them. This works in all but [[NoSell three cases]]: Gorgutz 'Ead'unter ("Oi said, ''get out o' me 'ead!!''"), Shas O'Kais ("I've got a buzzing in my comms. Switching channels.") and the Necron Lord, who has his only line in the game ([[BlackSpeech consisting of weird chittering]]). SmugSnake Eliphas actually loses his composure at the last one ("I... your soul is gone...").

* Toward the end of ''WesternAnimation/AllDogsGoToHeaven'', Charlie is captured by the [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment Big-Lipped Alligator]], who then proceeds to eat him alive, but when the Alligator was about to take his first bite, Charlie starts howling very loudly.

One problem; Superman is ''solar powered''. An issue of ''Comicbook/{{Runaways}}'' substitutes Dracula with "random vampire teenager" and Supes with Karolina, with the same results.

* Mephisto also encountered difficulties when he attempted to consume ComicBook/CloakAndDagger as he had done to a neo-Nazi [=mook=]. More specifically, it was Cloak who proved indigestible when his cape blistered the inside of Mephisto's stomach. The duo were promptly spit out as Mephisto complained that Cloak tasted of "an other demon's prior claim."
* In the eponymous series, ComicBook/HarleyQuinn was exiled from Hell due her focus on joy and love.
* In one story, Lobo died. The story ends with Lobo back among the livings and Heaven and Hell making him immortal for everything he did. OK, his rampage that devastated Heaven was justified, after they reincarnated him as a squirrel and he died squished by his own corpse dying his original death (it wasn't on purpose), but everything he did before that wasn't.
* In the second story-arc of ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW'' Spike is unaffected by the Nightmare forces (their powers, at any rate, he's still quite vulnerable to conventional attack) and when [[spoiler:Nightmare Rarity]] uses her LotusEaterMachine ability on him, he quickly deduces that it's not real and escapes.

After the Arcturian coach bites off and chews The Hawk's nose for long minutes, it's decided that humans are inedible and some other form of compensation will need to be worked out.

** As a general rule for the 'verse, it's not a good idea to try to eat/absorb the mind of the Doctor (or other Time Lords), and even if you can handle him, Clara Oswald and her echoes are an even worse idea/ have this going on as a bit of a running theme.

* A non-comedic example. In ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'', Alucard, one of fictiondoms [[GodModeSue most insanely overpowered characters]], has a habit of eating his defeated enemies' souls to enslave them and assimilate their power. [[spoiler:He's almost KilledOffForReal when he chows down on walking physics anomaly Schrodinger, whose power is so bizarre it causes Alucard to undergo a quantum existence failure. He does recover, but it takes ''30 years''.]]

* In ''Me and the Big Guy'' a parody of ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'', a lonely citizen tries small talking and playing board games with BigBrother and even puts on sock-puppet theater for the "Big guy" on the screen. An annoyed and disgusted Big Brother calls him out, telling him that Big Brother is supposed to be a feared and omniscient oppressor, not a personal friend, but as the citizen continuities this behavior, Big Brother turns the double-way screen off in frustration to avoid communicating with him. Of course, it is subtly suggested that this was the citizen's intention from the start.
