* ''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.

* The Dark Dragon God, Loputousu, and its current host in ''VideoGame/FireEmblem 4'' demand [[HumanSacrifice sacrifices of children ages 7 to 13]]. '''Large''' sacrifices.

That said, the vast majority of the children are killed in these battles.
