[[folder: Jokes]] * Three men were lost in the jungle, and found themselves captured by a trible of cannibals. They are brought to the king, who tells them that they will be set free if they can pass a test. Naturally, all three jump at the chance to not be killed, and accept the challenge eagerly. They are told to go into the jungle and gather up 10 each of a fruit of their choice, then to come back and await further instructions. The first man comes back with 10 apples. The king tells him, "[[AssShove You must put all these apples up your butt]], [[TheStoic without showing any emotion]]. If you can do that, you will be allowed to go free and unharmed. But if you show any emotion, even the slightest hint, you will be killed and cooked for the village feast. With that, the man took a deep breath, dropped his trousers, and began the test. He managed to get the first one in OK, but on the second one, he winced in pain and was immediately killed. The second man returned with 10 berries, and had to pass the same test. He got 9 berries in, but on the 10th one, he burst out laughing. He, too, was killed. Later, he met the first man in {{Heaven}}, who asked him, "Why did you laugh, you idiot? You almost made it!" The second man replied, "I couldn't help it! I saw Bob coming back with pineapples!" [[/folder]]

* Creator/VanBeurenStudios used this in several of their cartoons: ** Waffles the Cat and Don the Dog wind up in this situation in "Jungle Jazz". ** The Little King gets captured by a tribe of them in "On The Pan"; he's even served with Happy Birthday topping written in him! ** Tom and Jerry also suffer this fate in "Jungle Jam". They win them over with their music, at least until they try to run away. ** Robinson Cruesoe suffers this fate in "Molly Moo Cow and Robinson Cruesoe", but Molly manages to save him.

[[folder:Pinball]] * Appears with the add-on "Devil's Island" table for ''VideoGame/BallsOfSteel'', along with a threatening giant scorpion. [[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]] * Happened to WesternAnimation/RockyAndBullwinkle. {{Lampshaded}} and {{Subverted}} when they pointed out that since they're not human it's technically not cannibalism. ** This also happened to Sherman and Mr. Peabody during one of their segments on a trip to meet Dr. David Livingston. Peabody got them out of it by impressing the cannibals with some showmanship. * Mystery, Inc. is captured by cannibals in ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheSamuraiSword''. The boys are going to be eaten and the girls are going to be married to the chief. * ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'': It's implied that this happened to Bumi. While walking around the fog with his siblings, he started having flashbacks of this event. Even though his siblings believed that his stories were fabricated, it's pretty clear that this one really did happen.

Split animated films and live-action films.

[[folder:Film]][[folder:Films -- Animated]] * Spoofed in ''WesternAnimation/SurfsUp''. Chicken Joe is captured by native penguins who put him in a pot, which the oblivious Joe mistakes for a hot tub. He eventually befriends them with roast squid on a stick, which the natives find it TastesLikeChicken. [[/folder]] [[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]

* ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' had this with a tribe that captured Jack and several of his crew. This example is a good illustration of this trope being discredited. At first, the natives doing this were identified as Caribs, and the few surviving Caribs complained that they were cannibals is a false accusation against them.

* BobHope and BingCrosby are captured by cannibals in ''[[RoadTo Road to Zanzibar]]''. The cannibals think Hope and Crosby are white gods... until, that is, the cannibals decide to test their divinity by having Hope get into a sidesplittingly hilarious wrestling match with a gorilla.

** The second half of ''Film/CannibalHolocaust'' takes this trope to its logical and insanely nightmarish conclusion. It's not like the film crew [[AssholeVictim didn't have it coming though]].
