* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TaleSpin'', Becky's truffle hunting expedition turns sour when they're found by natives who try to cook her ''and'' the pig she brought to sniff the valuable fungus out. The biggest irony is, the natives seem to have plenty of truffles; they use them in the soup that Becky nearly becomes a part of.

While cannibalism as a ritualistic or cultic reasons has indeed been practiced by RealLife tribes, most accounts of the type seen in fiction were likely apocryphal, spread by white men as an excuse the use of military force as a means of "civilizing" and "pacifying" the "savages".

* ''Film/MuppetTreasureIsland'' has an isle of wild boars who worship Benjamina Gunn (Miss Piggy) as a god, and attempt to cook the heroes. Naturally, the Swedish Chef is on the island as their chef. Definitely played for laughs.

* 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!"
