** The artbook ''Bohemian Archive in Japanese Red'' contains an InUniverse newspaper article where [[MoonRabbit Reisen Inaba]] protests the Hakurei Shrine's plans to serve rabbit stew at an upcoming festival. [[HypocriticalHumor And then she protests the fact that there's nothing to eat at the festival.]] During the interview portion, she suggests that they serve poultry instead...and doesn't seem to care that it bothers the reporter, [[{{Tengu}} Aya]].

* In ''VideoGame/EtrianOdyssey IV: Legends of the Titan'', you can hunt at various points while flying to get food that gives you buffs. In the third area of the game, the food you get from hunting spots is rabbit meat. After completing the third area, you unlock the Bushi class, who are [[FunnyAnimal antropomorphic animals]], including a rabbit as a possible choice.

Or you can just recruit Kibagami the bull into your guild, then take him to the first area and make him eat the non-humanoid bulls there.

* ''{{Banjo-Kazooie}}'' isn't subject to only carnivore confusion, as ''everything'', from the [[AbnormalAmmo eggs used as ammunition]] to the orange given to a hungry monkey, is alive, sapient, and capable of SpeakingSimlish. Making it worse/better is that most of them are rather accepting of their fate; for example a fish that can be rescued in the second game that isn't even mildly annoyed it was about to be cooked and eaten before the plot arrived.

* ''VideoGame/CarriesOrderUp" has sea creatures such as sharks as customers at the restaurant. Not only will you never see them attack any of the other customers, but they're just as likely to order a salad as they are a steak.

* A key part of the backstory in ''VideoGame/ThemsFightinHerds'': the sentient ungulates, tired of being preyed on by carnivores, ''locked them all in another dimension''. All save for a handful of wolves who became sheepdogs and explicitly subsist on non-sentient vermin that would otherwise destroy the sheeple's crops. (The sheeple's [[TheDitz failed attempts to feed their sheepdogs alfalfa]] notwithstanding.) There's also the technically omnivorous longma, who abstain from meat by choice.

* In the ''SuperMarioBros'' series, the Mushroom Kingdom is mainly inhabited by anthropomorphic mushrooms like Toad. Then in the ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' games, it's discovered that normal mushrooms are also the Mushroom Kingdom's main food source! And there's also a pig who runs a hot dog stand...
** Remember that this is the ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' series, so it's probably deliberate.

* Brought up by Arcueid Brunestad in ''{{Tsukihime}}''. When asked by the main character why she, a vampire, didn't eat humans, she asks him if he would eat animals if they could talk to him. The interesting thing about Arcueid is she's been RaisedByWolves so came up with this value by herself.
* ''{{Furcadia}}'' makes it clear that the major non-sentient lifeforms in the planet suitable for food are fish and birds, yet there is a playable sentient bird-race...
* The classic Ritman/Drummond graphic adventure ''HeadOverHeels'', as well as being one of the cutest games ''ever'' (check out the remake on [[http://retrospec.sgn.net/ RetroSpec]]), has save points in the form of Reincarnation Fish which "like to be eaten ? there have been reports of them jumping onto plates".

* Played straight in ''[[{{Oddworld}} Abe's Odyssey]]'' (and its sequels). The glukkons want to use their cheap labor as a cheaper filler for their new taste sensation.
* In the ''JakAndDaxter'' series, the majority of the {{Talking Animal}}s are either [[HeelRaceTurn reformed]] [[{{Mooks}} Lurkers]] or [[WeaselMascot ottsels]] like [[SnarkyNonHumanSidekick Daxter]]. However, there is one [[PollyWantsAMicrophone bird]] named [[EmbarrassingFirstName Pecker]]. There's a scene in the racing spin-off ''[[VehicularCombat Jak X]]'' where he sees [[CombatCommentator Blitz]] eating poultry and objects, saying that that could be his uncle. So apparently macaw {{exp|y}}ies are food in that universe.
* A short instance in ''{{Terranigma}}'' finds your character, Ark, trapped in an icy cave with a talking goat. . . and the goat's dead husband. The next morning the goat asks if you are hungry and would like some breakfast, before walking over to her husband (complete with dramatic music cue).

* Web-based pet sims often have this problem. For example, carnivorous Neopets can and do eat other Neopets (a specific example is the abandon with which lupes eat chias), despite all of them being sentient. Like ''Pokémon'', there used to be "normal" animals such as fish and cows to give milk but, except for some outdated materials such as items of encyclopedia pages, this practice is beingf [[EarthDrift phased out.]]
