* In ''WesternAnimation/BigGuyAndRustyTheBoyRobot'', a brain-eating monster begins sucking the intelligence of Quark Industries' scientists. When he goes after Donovan, Quark's PointyHairedBoss[=/=]CorruptCorporateExecutive, both Donovan AND his monkey try to use this trope in order to escape. The monster just shrugs it off, wanting to attack out of dislike. In a later episode, Donovan's nephew gains the same brain-sucking powers, but decides against attacking Donovan. ("I crave nutrition, not empty calories!")
* ''TuffPuppy'': In the ''HalloweenEpisode'', Keswick reanimated some corpses to have zombies for the holiday. He said the zombies would be harmless as long as there were candies for them to eat. Otherwise they'd eat brains. When Keswick commented Dudley would be safe, Dudley proved the point by claiming he didn't understand it.
