* Twice in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', enemies suffer from trying to consume Nemu Kurotsuchi. First is Szayelaporro, whose use of Nemu to grow a new body for himself exposes him to drugs that Mayuri kept inside her- most notably, one that causes AndIMustScream. Second is [[spoiler: Pernida, who consumes her remains to gain her powers, but fails to consume her brain. Nemu's brain serves as a control for her incredibly aggressive HealingFactor, so without it, her regeneration takes over Pernida's entire body and turns it into a mass of cancer.]]

If the "victim" is more dangerous/powerful than the monster, that's a case of MuggingTheMonster. PityTheKidnapper is the broader, typically more mundane trapping of this trope.

** Subverted in the first movie: Mandy is confident that she'll be able to shrug off [[IKnowWhatYouFear the effects]] of the Hand of Horror and claim it for herself. However, the Hand bests her just as easily as it did with Billy and Irwin, the illusion it showed her--where she's a frumpy housewife happily married to Irwin--being enough to send her screaming in fear. As it turns out, Grim is the one too spicy for the Hand--which screams and shuts down as soon as he gets close--because his enslavement to Billy and Mandy means he's already living out his worst nightmare.


** In a third Flying Dutchman example, namely "Scaredy Pants" (The Flying Dutchman's first full appearance on the show), [=SpongeBob=] is shaved down by Patrick to make him rounder for a BedsheetGhost outfit that he uses as a Flying Dutchman costume to try and scare everyone in the Krusty Krab for Halloween. He fails miserably, but as the entire restaurant is laughing at him, the ''real'' Flying Dutchman arrives, angered by [=SpongeBob=]'s insulting costume and about to steal everyone's souls. He takes a moment before doing so to explain the concept of being scary to [=SpongeBob=], then removes the sheet... and flies away screaming when he sees that the sponge had been shaved down to facial features, a brain, and a "spinal cord".

* The premise of VideoGame/FateGrandOrder’s CCC event involved one of the escaped Demons from the Arc 1 finale coming to a remote oil rig/covert magical experimentation facility and hiding inside [[spoiler: the staff psychiatrist, Kiara Sessyoin]]. While he was initially able to control them without issue, the demon made the spectacularly unwise decision to try and flip through every version of their psyche, including the one where they [[spoiler: served as the final boss of CCC, as Kiara consumed multiple bosses in that timeline.]] After that, the demon gradually lost control, gradually becoming less and less able to influence his host, eventually becoming nothing more than a stray thought in the body he was “possessing”, and ended up begging first to be released, then for his life as [[spoiler: Kiara]] absorbed what was left of his ego, leaving them in complete control of their own body and full of memories from a timeline where they recklessly and destructively pursued their own pleasure, and full of enough demonic power to repeat that same hedonistic ambition.

* The villain in ''Film/{{Barbarella}}'' attempts to kill her by [[OutWithABang pleasuring her to death in his Excessive Machine]]. She, however, can take so much pleasure that the machine overloads instead. And then the giant evil-eating blob that engulfs the city at the end is so repulsed by her innocence that it spits out Barbarella ''and'' a villainess who just happens to be next to her because she is ''innocently sensual'', with no malice. Ok, some malice.
* ''{{Film/Evolution}}'':
** The alien organisms become acclimatised to Earth's atmosphere and are spreading throughout the town. They are evolving rapidly to become smarter primates. Ira suddenly makes the brilliant assumption that the aliens are weak against Selenium [[ItMakesSenseInContext and collects large amounts of Head & Shoulders shampoo which contains Selenium.]]
** The Army bombs the aliens and suddenly, a [[spoiler: large blob-like organism which all the aliens originated from]] comes out of the cave and crushes the Army. The heroes drive close to the monster and pump in large amounts of shampoo but one of them ends up being swallowed (then because of the Selenium it vomits him again and the thing explodes).

When facing a monster that feeds on adrenaline but is harmed by actual fear, the Doctor conquers it effortlessly by showing it his own mind.

* In one old module for ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'', players have to stop a plot to link the mind of an EldritchAbomination to the psyches of all humanity, by which the villains intend to reduce the human race to its gibbering worshippers. If they fail to stop it, there's a campaign-preserving [[AuthorsSavingThrow GM Saving Throw]] option of having the villains' scheme run its course successfully... only to have the ''abomination'' be driven insane, by whatever standard of "sanity" might apply to Lovecraftian horrors, because the sheer number of human beings on Earth is so great that their cumulative psyches can overpower its own singular mind and rip it to shreds because they are so foreign to it. All that happens to the world's population is having very vivid and disturbing nightmares for a few days at most.
* The Kroot in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' evolve by [[PowerCopying assimilating the genetic material]] of what they eat, progressing certain groups along specific developmental lines (to the point where every single animal on their homeworld Pech is a Kroot derivative, their ancestors filling all available niches). However, the Shapers (basically guides as to what should be eaten) instruct their brethren to avoid [[FaceFullOfAlienWingWong Genestealer hybrids]] or those [[TheCorruption tainted with Chaos]] due to their potential to corrupt the entire species.
** In the Warp there is a planet designed for Khorne, the Chaos god of violence and hate, where the dead are locked in an endless battle only to be brought back to life each day for eternal torment. A group of Orks get stuck there. [[WarriorHeaven 99% of them thought they found Heaven, while the last 1% of them thought they found something better.]]
* An unusually literal example in the ''TabletopGame/FengShui'' supplement ''Elevator to the Netherworld''. As part of his plot to defeat an unkillable man-eating giant (it's complicated), a hero soaked his clothes in hot pepper juice, [[EatMe then goaded the giant into trying to eat him]].
* ''TabletopGame/{{Deadlands}}'': Stone. When Stone was shot in the back by his own men for being an evil sonofabitch in the battle of Gettysburg, the embodiments of pure evil sent one of their servant spirits to offer him his life back in exchange for timesharing his body with said spirit. Stone accepted, but the blackness of his soul left the poor demon a gibbering wreck.

Then one of them simply sings "Leader!" to the tune of the old ''Series/{{Batman}}'' ''Series/Batman1966'' theme song, and he is instantly brainwashed. {{Double Subver|sion}}ted later in the same episode, when Groundskeeper Willie tries to de-program Homer and winds up being brainwashed himself.


* In ''WesternAnimation/{{SpongeBob SquarePants}}'', the Flying Dutchman gave [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick up as slave crewmen in "Shanghaied" because they were incredibly bad at it. In a subversion, rather than letting them go, he planned to eat them, but they escaped and then took the Dutchman's dining sock (he's unwilling eat without it). Then when the Dutchman catches them and Spongebob ends up bringing them to an impasse with the sock, The Dutchman offers them three wishes in exchange for the sock. After accidentally using up two of their wishes, the first wish used by Patrick who says "I wish we had known that earlier", and the second wish used by Spongebob to bring back Squidward (who ironically enough had just returned home after the Dutchman sent him down the Fly Of Despair), Spongebob uses their final wish to turn the Dutchman into a vegetarian. But ''then'' they appear in a blender, somehow transformed into ''fruit'', with the Dutchman preparing to eat them.
** That was one of three endings, by the way, which were also subverted. The other two alternatives had Patrick and Squidward get the third wish instead of [=SpongeBob=], but they both end with the Dutchman definitely eating them. Patrick's wish was simply stupid (sticks of gum), and Squidward's wish wasn't [[LiteralGenie what he had in mind]] (Squidward wished that he had never meet Spongebob and Patrick; all three were simply given amnesia).

--->'''Krabs:''' What have I done? I want another chance! I haven't learned anything! I lost me best fry cook! I don't want this foul money, I want [=SpongeBob=] back!
--->'''Dutchman:''' Here, take him back!
--->'''Krabs:''' You heard what I said about the money?
--->'''Dutchman:''' Heard what you said? I couldn't hear myself thinkin' with this one around. I only had him for thirty seconds, and it's "jellyfishin' this" and "Mermaid Man that!" Why, not givin' him back is a fate worse than death. He's your problem now!


** Another "Treehouse of Horror II" special had 2/3 of this trope in play. The first time, it had Homer buy a demonic Krusty doll for Bart's birthday and when it tries to kill him, Homer eventually tries to get rid of it by dumping it in a bottomless pit. Said pit rejected a box containing nude photos of Whoopi Goldberg. Later, a zombie horde clamoring for "Braaaains" inspect Homer's head, then abandon him in disgust... He's actually [[TooDumbToLive offended by that turn of events]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda3'', the BigBad Kai tries to absorb the [[LifeEnergy chi]] of the Dragon Warrior. Po tries to fight him and even uses the Wuxi Finger Hold, the same method he used on [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda Tai Lung]], but Kai is a spirit and the Finger Hold only works on mortals. Po grabs onto Kai and uses the move on himself to send them both to the spirit realm. After Po's friends and loved ones send their energy to Po, he attains his potential as the Dragon Warrior. When Kai still tries to steal his chi, Po gives it to him... all of it. Kai is [[PhlebotinumOverload unable to handle it all and explodes]].
