* In ''IcewindDale'' ''2'', the witch Limda is a particular sadistic variant. To preserve her youth, she drains lifeforce from the children of a nearby group of fur-traders and turns them into minks as a side effect. Minks that are hunted and skinned by their own unwitting parents. She gets sick kicks from watching the traders murder and skin their own missing children.

* Homelander in ''TheBoys'' recieves blackmail photos of himself committing all manner of horrible crimes, including eating babies alive, even though he has no memories of the events. This eventually drives him to break down completely and becoming a full-blown villain, leading the various superhumans in an attempted coup against the U.S goverment. [[spoiler: The photos are actually of Black Noir, in reality a clone of Homelander driven insane because he's unable to fulfill the purpose he was created for; destroying Homelander in case he became uncontrollable. Black Noir committed the crimes in hopes of giving Homelander a psychotic break so he'd be allowed to kill him]]



* ''Film/PansLabyrinth'': One task the young heroine Ofelia must complete for the Faun is to retrieve a precious dagger from the lair of The Pale Man, a grotesque humanoid monster with his [[EyesDoNotBelongThere eyes on his hands]] who sits asleep at a table where a great banquet is laid. Murals on the cieling of the chamber depict him cruelly killing and devouring scores of little children, and there is a pile of shoes implied to be left over from all the children he's eaten. On the way out, Ofelia succumbs to the temptation of eating from the delicious fruit on the table, causing the pale man to wake up and try to eat her; her fairy companions die trying to protect her, and she barely escapes with her life. There's a reason his portrait is on the film's [[NightmareFuel/PansLabyrinth nightmare fuel page]]!

* The Orb of Bask from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' took the souls of children, which the wielder could use as food.

* The Orb of Bask from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' took the souls of children, which the wielder could use as food. Goki demonstrates this as Yusuke approaches him, although Yusuke defeats him before the children's souls could digest, allowing them to float back to their bodies upon being freed.

* ''Literature/TheWitches'' in Roald Dahl's book of the same name want to kill children because they can't stand the smell of them -- a child, particularly a freshly-bathed one, smells like dog's droppings to a witch. They eventually decide to turn them all into mice, because the parents would then poison, trap or otherwise dispatch the newly arrived rodent infestation, not realizing it was their children. The witches get sick satisfaction from tricking the parents into offing their own kids.
** Shows up again in Dahl's ''Literature/TheBFG'', where the evil giants tend to eat people regardless of age, but seem to prefer kids, because; "''Little chiddlers is not so tough to eat as old grandmamma, so says the Childchewing Giant''". In the animated adaptation, they seem to eat ''only'' kids.
