* In ''{{Felarya}}'', most characters eat humans, yet are really nice otherwise. [[MeetTheMeat It isn't odd for the predators to exchange words with their prey]].

* ''FanFic/ThePiecesLieWhereTheyFell'':
** Vix-Lei, despite being a minotaur, sees nothing wrong with eating beef. She explains that since the cows [[spoiler:in the world of Canterlot High]] are non-sapient and different enough from her own species, it doesn’t matter.
** In the sequel, despite being a pony (a nominally herbivore species), Gentle Step has developed a taste for meat.

* TheBible: historically some theologians have proposed that the animals in the Garden of Eden were all herbivores, with meat-eating being a result of the Fall.
** The above is possibly a back-formation from Isaiah 11:6, which speaks of the future messianic age: ''The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them.''

* ''{{Fanfic/Pagliacci}}'' features a restaurant run by griffins aimed specifically at carnivores. As can be expected, they serve meat items, including beef. However, this is set in the world of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''... where cows are presented as sentient creatures...
** Of course, the beef could be from cows that donated themselves to such a cause before they died, or maybe it's gaur beef and not cow beef.
* Estee's [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/209574/1/naked-lunch/the-jungle Naked Lunch]] in the [[FanFic/TriptychContinuum Triptych Continuum]] has a similar idea, wherein a griffin comes to Equestria to open a butcher shop. Given that there are a few species who ''need'' to eat meat (including a few griffins) living there already, and they've been relegated to getting their food from back-alley shops (or worse, pet supply stores), they're at least happy about his arrival. [[spoiler: As is a pony named Sizzler, who works at the ''[[ScareChord meat station]]'' at the palace.]]
** [[WordOfGod Word Of Fanfic Author]] is that in this continuity, meat is harvested from the non-sentient monster species. (Basically, if it's trying to kill and eat you, go right ahead and return the favor.) Ranching is a decidedly hazardous profession. There's also a cross-species agreement in place called The Treaty Of Menagerie, which basically states that none who consume meat shall take it from any who talk or think -- but not every race has signed off on it, with the Diamond Dogs and dragons noticeably absent.

* While not an animal, the [[ITasteDelicious cereal squares]] in commercials for Cinnamon Toast Crunch are [[YouTasteDelicious cannibalistic]], though not shown to be sentient.
** So are the cereal squares in commercials for Golden Grahams.
* Charlie the Tuna who always wants to be apart of Star-Kist Tuna. Much to his chagrin, he's never good enough to be killed, chopped up, and eaten.
* The new Lay's commercials with Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head. The first one has Mr. Potato Head coming home from work to catch his wife eating some chips. The second one has him incognito while buying several bags, and the two of them going on a drive while snacking on chips.
* In one M&M's commercial, three of the large, anthropomorphic M&M's (Plain, Peanut, and Crispy) are hanging out in a candy store eating regular M&Ms. A guy who comes in is actually a little disturbed about this when he sees it, telling them it's "eating their own kind". (He's even more disturbed when they respond by simply swapping bags with each other, so that each now has a different ''type'' of the candy).
* In old (as in, 70s) McDonalds commercials, Ronald and his pals would often eat the living, talking hamburgers without any hesitation. (This sort of thing seemed to be ruled a little ''too'' creepy eventually, gotten rid of by the 80s.)

* [[InvertedTrope Invert]] most of the above examples by making the prey totally unlikable. The cat gets double satisfaction when eating that {{jerkass}} mouse, as not only is he delicious, it serves the little bastard right.

* VegetarianCarnivore: Depart from real-world biology completely: the carnivore can choose to go vegan if they really want to. A common way of doing so is by rendering carnivorism as something similar to [[TropaholicsAnonymous alcoholism]] (''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'', ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'', ''{{Pride}}'', etc).

* Krillin tries to serve the talking pig Oolong pork in ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged''. When Oolong finds out, he tells Krillin to rot in hell. Later, Chiaotzu accidentally serves Oolong pork, and Oolong realizes to his horror that he's delicious. In the BadFuture where the Androids terrorize the world, Oolong's made peace with the fact that he'll have to eat pork rinds to survive.
