* Horror-punk band Calibretto has the song "Misanthropy and the Full Moon", from the perspective of a werewolf, promising to fulfill this trope to put an end to [[HumansAreBastards man's inhumanity to man]].
-->'Cause the only way to stop this infestation\\
of this selfish race and its dehumanization\\
is by decimation of all reproduction,\\
so here is my own resolution:\\
I will eat your children. Hey!

* A comic from ''ComicStrip/TheFarSide'' depicts two parents telling a stereotypical-looking WickedWitch, "Now let me get this straight. We hired you to babysit the kids, and instead you cooked and ate them BOTH?" In ''The Prehistory of The Far Side'', a retrospective book, cartoonist Gary Larson expresses particular pride at emphasizing the word "both".

* 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]]!
