Inediate means non-eating, and in NetHack refers to a creature that does not need to eat any kind of food to stay alive. Inediate pets can sometimes be difficult to keep tame, because usually when a pet eats it becomes tamer.

A player who completes the game without eating is said to have achieved the foodless conduct.

Generally, monsters that are undead, demonic, angelic, or otherwise magical in nature are inediate, but there are exceptions, like ghouls. Some creatures that are inediate in NetHack, like bees and fungi, would be classified differently in the real world.
