* In the {{Gor}} series a standard practice for sleen or larl hunters is to eat the heart while it's still warm from its blood, for good luck. An additional thing with a sleen is to drink a cupped-handful of its blood, then take another handful and look in it to see a reflection of how you will die - of old age, in battle, or wasted away by disease.

** Also, there are dragons called Devourers, who like to feed on other dragons' [[SoulJar Hearts]]. Much like [[TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem the vampires' Diaberie]], it's reviled by Oroboroi society (even ''more so'', in fact, since they are a DyingRace and Hearts are ''not'' a renewable ressource) and comes with [[BodyHorror very nasty side effects]]...

* ''TabletopGame/DragonTheEmbers'':
** This is how [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Oroboroi]] reproduce; since they lost the ability to procreate the natural way a long time ago, they instead create new dragons by feeding their [[SoulJar Heart]] to a human whenever they feel like they have lived long enough. This results in the Heart's owner dying and the human becoming a new dragon.

* Kleptocnidae. Hydra got stinging cells with enough poison to stun a little fish. A flatworm eats hydra, assimilates stinging caps without discharge and not digests them, but incorporates as is. Then a predator tries to eat such a flatworm and finds out it hurts a lot. This approach saw a lot of use for stinging [[http://animaldiversity.ummz.umich.edu/site/accounts/information/Cnidaria.html cnidarians]] from hydra to jellyfish and a variety of eaters up to slugs adding more "zap" to their skin or transferring kleptocnidae into their tentacles to use more offensively.
