** Original description of the strip on [=CompuServe=] Funnies Forum stated that at home Kell cooks tofu making it look like meat products for herself and Rudy. This idea was never mentioned in the strips and after a while disappeared from the description.

* In ''Webcomics/KevinAndKell'' it's unusual, and [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything generally frowned upon]], but happens now and then.

** They don't say they're becoming vegetarians, only that they will stop eating [[ExactWords fish]]. Dolphins aren't fish.
*** Neither are [[ImAHumanitarian Humans]]...

'''Note:''' This only applies to carnivorous, and sometimes omnivorous characters that switch to eating just fruits, vegetables and other plant-based foods (and the occasional [[NoCartoonFish fish]] and/or [[WhatMeasureIsANonCute insect]]). Carnivorous characters that only switch from one type of meat to another are subversions.

foods.



** Subverted with Suicune. On the one hand, it does bear some resemblence to a cross between a canine and a feline (being compared to either a wolf or a cheetah by some fans). However, it has flat molar teeth and is actually based off of the Kirin (a mythical cross between a dragon and a horse), making it an ''herbivore''.



* Simba from ''Disney/TheLionKing'' turns insectivore at the behest of his two animal friends. [[HakunaMatata Just let go of your worries]], and you too can grow big and strong on a morally-appropriate diet of creepy crawlies!
* Subverted with Alex the Lion from ''WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}}''. He switches his diet to avoid eating his friends or starving to death, but to fish instead of veggies.



* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' pretty much averts this trope. It's clearly established that the traditional food chain is no longer in place, averting SapientEatSapient in a WorldOfFunnyAnimals. It's been [[AllThereInTheManual confirmed]] that there is a fast food restaurant called Bug Burger that makes their food out of insects, and several [[NoCartoonFish fish markets]] can be seen in an establishing shot of Tundratown during the train ride, so it's clear that the carnivores still typically eat animal protein as a substantial part of their diet, and mammalian prey are off limits, because being sapient, eating them would amount to murder. What this means for other non-mammalian animals (for instance birds and reptiles) is unknown. However, even members of obligate carnivore species eat ''some'' vegetarian food they wouldn't in real life: [[DonutMessWithACop Clawhauser (tiger) loves donuts]] and Nick (fox) likes blueberries.
