** The re-digitized release of the film, re-envisions the Sarlaac-pit as being simply a plant-well for a "man-eating plant" pod, that very much resembles "Audrey II" from ''LittleShopofHorrors'' ("FEEEED ME!"); and rather than falling into the pit, the "Audrey II" simply gobbles them up (which it visibly does to Boba Fett... so much for his "escaping" from it later). Whether this change was made in response to criticisms of the original Sarlacc's obvious Freudian connotations, is anyone's guess.

* Don't think too hard about this, but: the sarlacc pit in ''StarWars''. ''With tentacles.'' Eeeewww. In fact, the recently released Sarlacc Pit playset has a Sarlacc that looks 'so' much like a vagina that you have to wonder if someone did it on a bet. [[http://forums.earth-2.net/index.php?/topic/5218-target-sells-my-childhood/ There's no WAY this isn't intentional]] This did not go unnoticed on I-Mockery.com's [[http://www.i-mockery.com/minimocks/returnofthejedi/ Ten Things I Like About Return Of The Jedi (#8)]]

** In ''Grim Prairie Tales'', James Earl Jones relates a similar tale about a demonic woman who does the same thing to unsuspecting males-- but becomes ''pregnant'' as a result, sucking him into her womb, while the hapless male confidante ''becomes her unborn child--'' which then gradually vanishes, as she repeats the process with another unsuspecting man, whom she dupes into helping a "pregnant lady." When it's fully vanished, she then later tells the new "good Samaritan" that she was just ''faking'' pregnancy with a pillow, in order to avoid rapists; and she "shows her gratitude" to his honesty by having sex with him. And the process repeats.

And so the process repeats.repeats. (In response, Jones's conservative listener expresses disgust with the story).

**Joe Rogan also does a stand-up bit that retorts female insults against the appearance of male genitalia, with Joe saying "have you seen what ''you've'' got down there? It looks like the Predator's mouth!"

* The first Boss in ''BrutalLegend'' is this... stuck to a tentacle... with a clitoris piercing, that apparently smells like a death whale.

* The only female Gunmen (Gunwomen?) mecha, belonging to General Adiane in ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' has its toothy mouth below the abdomen, with fangs. Given the fact that all the male Gunmen use [[ThisIsADrill drills, drills, and more drills]] as weapons, this was ''definitely'' intended to evoke FreudWasRight.

** Its SpiritualSuccessor ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'' takes this trope even further with enemies such as the Crawlers (giant [[EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods squid-looking thingies]]) and the [[EldritchAbomination Fluorescent Flower]] (picture a [[CreepyCentipedes giant centipede]] crossed with an AlluringAnglerfish sporting a [[FreudWasRight vertical]] mouth that's got [[MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily as many teeth as you'd expect]]). Bonus points: the former is [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything full of infant-sized Messengers]] and the latter has a the Gaping Dragon's gushing attack... yeah. ''[[DemonicSpiders Both of these are technically mooks]]'' (though they're also mercifully rare). [[spoiler: It's even partly justified, given the [[FaceFullOfAlienWingWong later revelations]]...]]

* In ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'', the Elites have sets of mandibles similar to the Predators. Lampshaded in ''ArbyNTheChief'', where Chief calls Arby Vagina Face occasionally.

An alternate theory suggested by some men says that the fear of the vagina dentata arises from the idea that having your penis bitten off would ''[[CaptainObvious really, really hurt]]'', but of course that doesn't even come close to explaining why they'd imagine teeth in a vagina ''in the first place''. [[FridgeLogic Strangely enough]], this trope has not diminished the male enthusiasm for fellatio. This may be explained by the fact that most legends of Vagina Dentata show said toothed orifice as having a ''[[AnimateBodyParts mind of its own]]'', and a rather malicious one at that, whereas the standard mouth is manifestly under the control of its owner. Others point out that the idea of a secret mouth -- sharp, nasty, and ready to bite you when you least expect it -- is terrifying in and of itself.

* There was a joke in the USSR that went like this: it doesn't exist, never did, and never will, but if somehow it appears--[[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the world will end]]. What is it? The question had double answer: vagina dentata, and communism.
