Added DiffLines:

* Giant Pandas will eat meat, fish, and eggs when available.


* One method of eliminating targets in ''VideoGame/Hitman2'' is to feed them to a hippopotamus. It should be noted that hippos, while quite violent and territorial, are herbivores in real life.

* One method of eliminating targets in ''VideoGame/Hitman2'' is to feed them to a hippopotamus. It should be noted that hippos, while quite violent and territorial, are herbivores in real life. Said hippo grew a taste for meat after being fed one too many of the cartel's victims, and a handler is trying to switch its diet to normal when we see it.


* In one of Creator/SimonRGreen's ''Hawk and Fisher'' novels, the ghosts of animals that were killed at a slaughterhouse are summoned up en masse and rampage through the city. Crazed and furious, they retaliate against humanity by killing and eating people: a gruesome act of vengeance even the ''sheep'' take part in.

Crazed and furious, they retaliate against humanity by killing and eating people: a gruesome act of vengeance that even the ''sheep'' take part in.

* ''WesternAnimation/IceAge3DawnOfTheDinosaurs'' has an ''Ankylosaurus'' that attacks the main cast, which would be typical aggressive herbivore behavior if it weren't for the fact it is depicted with [[ArtisticLicenseBiology jaws full of razor-sharp teeth like a carnivorous dinosaur]]. Plus the novelization outright states it was trying to eat them.

* ''WesternAnimation/WereBackADinosaursStory'' apparently features a Triceratops named Woog and a Parasaurolophus named Dweeb, who both for some reason actually like to eat hot dogs.

* ''WesternAnimation/WereBackADinosaursStory'' apparently features a Triceratops named Woog and a Parasaurolophus named Dweeb, who both for some reason actually like to eat hot dogs. Amusingly a potential example of AccidentallyCorrectWriting, since there's now a theory that some ornithischian dinosaurs may have occasionally consumed carrion and small vertebrates for extra protein (as mentioned under RealLife examples below).


* Episode 6 of ''Anime/MichikoToHatchin'' briefly features a fighting bull eating a steak made from an ex-bull.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/{{Beastars}}'': When [[spoiler:Louis the deer]] ends up as the leader of a carnivore criminal gang, he smokes cigarettes and eats meat to fit in and make himself seem more threatening, even though both of those things make him sick, because he's afraid they will kill him if he doesn't. He ends up starving because he can't digest meat until one of the gang members recognizes what is happening and brings him salad. This is a bit of a case of ArtisticLicenseBiology, since in real life his species actually can and occasionally do eat meat.


* ''FanFic/TheLunarGuardsman'': Luna has long now learned to eat and even enjoy meat, a result of her obsession and fear of disappointing her sister that drove her to return to her as rarely as possible, thus learning to subside on the flesh of the same monsters she hunted.
* ''FanFic/TheImmortalGame'': [[TheDragon Esteem]] indulges in eating meat, which is anathema to most ponies.

* ''FanFic/LeftBeyond'': In the Millennial Kingdom, humans are obligate herbivores, with few exceptions, by Divine decree. One of the hints that the world is finally getting Off The Rails[[OffTheRails]] is Jenny being able to eat meat, after a few tries. Later on in the timeline, synthetic meat and fish are reinvented, making it easier to disguise the fact that only Jenny and the Dwarves was able to fully make the leap.

* Don't forget the KillerRabbit of Caerbannog from ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail''.
* A similarly psychotic rabbit appears in the 2010 horror flick ''Film/Primal2010'', although it's killed before it can rack up a body count.
* In the first act of ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'', TheMonolith is sent by unseen alien {{Precursors}} to teach the ancestors of the human species to eat meat so that they can survive a drought. (While doing research for the novel, Creator/ArthurCClarke consulted Creator/IsaacAsimov about the biochemistry of turning herbivores into carnivores, but none of this shows up in the final story.)
* The gorillas in ''Film/{{Congo}}'' were forced to eat meat to make them the perfect guards for the temple.
* In the movie ''Film/{{Raw}}'', lifelong vegetarian Justine gets her first taste of meat during a hazing ceremony, and discovers that her mother's dietary insistence wasn't military veganism--it sparks a fanatical obsession with eating meat, especially human flesh...
* The movie ''Film/{{Zoombies}}'' blends this with your standard [[FleshEatingZombie flesh-eating zombie]], in that all the infected animals at the zoo crave the flesh of the living, including what would otherwise be herbivores.
* ''Film/{{Godzilla 1998}}'': Marine iguanas are strictly vegetarians dining on seaweed, but Zilla's diet consists mainly of fish.

* ''Literature/AfterManAZoologyOfTheFuture'': After the carnivorans mostly went extinct, rats filled their former niches to become the dominant predators in most environments. Similarly, the African plains are dominated by predatory monkeys.



* The creation story in ''Literature/WatershipDown'' has all animal species start out as grass-eating herbivores, some of which were transformed into carnivores by Frith (God) to keep rabbits' numbers in check.
* The [[RhinoRampage rhinoceros]] from ''Literature/JamesAndTheGiantPeach''.

Added DiffLines:

* This can go a step further with insectivores; while many of these animals are already omnivores, even they're not above eating full-on meat. Take the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_spotted_woodpecker Great spotted woodpecker]] of Eurasia, whose diet primary consists of seeds, nuts, fruit, small insects... but can also eat [[EatsBabies baby birds]] [[https://ww2.rspb.org.uk/birds-and-wildlife/bird-and-wildlife-guides/ask-an-expert/previous/woodpeckers_eat_chicks.aspx fresh from the nests of other avians]] and [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/56/Dendrocopos_major_on_ripped_pig_kallerna.jpg carrion of large animals]], if they can find some lying around.
