* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', one can meet a Rito, the game's BirdPeople, at a meat shop, where she expresses disappointment that it doesn't supply poultry. Similarly, at a shop ran by a Rito, one can sell poultry meat with no questions being raised at all.

* ''{{Spore}}'' averts this -- as a Carnivore or Omnivore creature, you can socialize with the same creatures you are capable of killing and eating. The same holds true in the Tribal stage, and any other tribes don't seem to mind if you're slaughtering other sapient creatures and consuming them. (Not averted so much if you're playing Tribal as a straight carnivore and offer a gift basket of meat to a tribe of herbivores...)

** This franchise has an exceptionally strange treatment of animals; for example, Sonic also rescues pigs from inside Dr. Robotnik's badniks. Ian Flynn, head author of [[ComicBook/ArchieSonicTheHedgehg the comics]], tried to clear this up [[http://www.bumbleking.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7330&start=225&sid=5074ea2d5bc0bafa98bdfa69387539b4 by explaining]] that there are ''three'' classes of animals: anthros, "animal friends", and regular animals - an idea that, while fairly consistent with established lore, is never spelled out in official media. This explanation has been met with a mixed reception by the fanbase.

* 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 Like ''Pokémon'', there used to be "normal" animals such as fish and cows to give milk but, except for some outdated materials such as items of encyclopedia pages, this practice is being [[EarthDrift phased out.]]

** In ''City Folk'', at least, the villagers seem to genuinely want to welcome Franklin; they'll say something that ''sounds'' bad, such as 'I can't wait for dinner with our guest', then follow it up with 'I even researched his culture's food and made some so he'll feel more at home'. Mayor Tortimer is really the only one being truly creepy about it.

Mayor Tortimer is really the only one being truly creepy about it. As of ''New Leaf'' though, the problem seems to have been cleared up entirely by making Franklin a chef(making his invitation sensible), and having Tortimer retire.

** 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.
