Burp of Finality

Monster burps after eating someone to make it clear they're gone for good.

So a monster just ate someone, maybe even without chewing, or things cut away just before things got...messy. But how to make it clear the victim is gone for good, without getting gory?

Easy, just have the monster burp! Bonus points if it politely apologizes for bad table manners.

Spit Out a Shoe without the need for clothing. Usually Played for Laughs.

    • Return Of The Jedi. After the bounty hunter Boba Fett slides into the Sarlacc's mouth, it burps to show he's started to (to quote Jabba the Hutt) "find a new definition of pain and suffering" as he's "slowly digested over 1,000 years".

    Sorry, but with only two examples (one if you only count the one that has been added to the draft), this isn't ready to launch. Added a bomb.

    In the TV version of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal does this after eating a Vogon grandmother. Since the Guide entry animation is simplified by design, you need the burp to really hammer in the consumption. See this in action here.

    I also threw in a bomb, this is a legit trope but this is nowhere near ready to launch. Hats mean ready to launch.

    In The Great Mouse Detective after Felicia eats Bartholemew she purrs at Ratigan. He praises her, and she burps loudly. Watch!

    • Plants Vs Zombies 2 Its About Time: if you use the Plant Food Power Up on your planted Chomper, he'll proceed to eat 3 zombies at once, then lets out a big burp that pushes other zombies on his lane backwards.

    Warcraft III: The Devour ability slowly digests an enemy unit, with a burp sound playing when the unit is killed.

    In Mortal Kombat Annihilation, Jade is fed to a monster carving in the wall by Shao Kahn for failing him. The carving gives out a great big burp when it's done with her.
