* 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.

It just primarily focuses on children because they almost always have simple fears that it can easily 'become', unlike adults, who tend to have more complicated fears.[[/note]]

* ''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. 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.
