The Venusian metal-eater is a metal-eating creature from Venus, one of which lurks in a supply room in The Underground City by Steve Adelson. It kills anything that threatens its food source and attacks using its four rows of teeth. It has a hardiness of 20 and agility of 15, and can inflict 1d15 damage.
It may be similar to a Kzork, another metal-eating creature mentioned by John Nelson.
- Cosmos by Carl Sagan depicts a similar creature known as the "oucher-poucher" which lives on Venus and feeds on metal.
