The Meat-Eater is an antagonist that appeared in the 1933 monster film King Kong.
Its vocal effects were provided by the late Earl A. Wolcott.
The Meat-Eater was among the prehistoric creatures living on the tropical isle Skull Island in 1933. As King Kong was travelling across Skull Island with his "bride" Ann Darrow, he realized that he is being followed by the crew of the Venture and so he set Ann down atop a tall tree while he went to attack the expedition. While Kong was distracted, the Meat-Eater, which was walking by in the jungle, soon came into view of Ann Darrow. Horrified by the sight of the dinosaur, Ann screams in terror, but it only attracted the beast's attention. The Meat-Eater then approached the dead tree intent on eating Ann for food. Upon hearing Ann's screams, Kong rushed to her aid, and instantly tackles the dinosaur. After a long, violent and drawn-out battle, Kong climbs on the dinosaur's back and snapped the Meat-Eater's jaws, incapacitating the monster before continuing on his way to his lair with Ann. A short time later, Jack Driscoll encountered the wounded Meat-Eater, still breathing but barely alive. As he watched, the dinosaur finally died from its wounds.
- In its more recent appearances in literature, the Meat-Eater's description more closely matches that of a Tyrannosaurus rex rather than an Allosaurus.
