* ''Film/NightOfTheHunter'' - Harry Palmer, recently a widower after murdering his bride, has meals given to him by sympathetic townsfolk (who think she's run off on him) - which he withholds from his stepchildren to get them to tell where their late father's stolen money is hidden.

* ''Manga/KareKano'': Soichiro Arima had a mother who beat him badly on an almost daily basis and if she wasn't, it was because she left him alone for days on end as he slowly starved, locked in a house with barely any food.

* Nehrus, a gluttonous Goa'uld scientist comes to Earth claiming to help the Tau'ri in ''Series/StargateSG1''. When he's revealed to be a traitor (not only to the heroes but to the Goa'uld as well, since he's become a follower of [[BiggerBad the Ori]]), he is locked up in Area 51. He asks Landry what will get him to cooperate. Landry calmly says "hunger".

* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'': Kaneki's father died when he was only four, leaving only books to remember him by. His mother, whom he repeatedly refers to as kind and a wonderful person, beat him as a child before working herself to death to support herself, her sister, and her son when Kaneki was ten. After his mother's death, he was sent to live with his aunt, who became verbally and emotionally abusive towards him because of her jealousy over him getting better grades than her son, including giving him less and less food and then excluding him from family meals entirely. She instead giving him a meager amount of money to buy his own food.

* Roger in ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'' got this when blamed for messing up Andy's computer (it was actually Jason and Paige's fault).
** Note that Roger messes up the computer [[WalkingTechbane all the time]]; this time it was a rather spectacular accident (Diet Coke spilled into the keyboard, then an attempt to clean it up using a hairdryer).
** Roger also was implied to have suffered this trope in another strip, where the kids got pancakes whereas he didn't (or, well, any breakfast). That time, however, he definitely deserved it. (Let's just say he picked a very poor gift for Valentine's Day for Andy, and that was her way of communicating it.)
* This backfires in a ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' strip. Jon threatens to send Garfield to bed without dinner because he won't eat. Garfield happily jumps into bed because the food doesn't taste good.
* This has happened to [[ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes Calvin]] a few times. On one such occasion (where he was punished for saying the food "smells like bat barf") he simply picked up the phone and ordered a pizza instead.

* ''Literature/OliverTwist'':
-->'''Oliver''': Please sir. May I have some more?
-->'''Workhouse Master''': MORE?!?!?
** In this case, the part about not getting enough food is not intended as a punishment, it's just the way the [[OrphanageOfFear orphanarium is run]]. The ''actual'' punishment is that Oliver is ''sold'' into what amounts to slavery (at least, that's the Workhouse Master's intent; it doesn't work out quite that badly for him).
* In [[Literature/FiveYearsToFreedom Five Years To Freedom]], the US prisoners of war are at times fed little more than rice and rock salt. Rowe, the protagonist of the story, mentions some of his friends dying from malnutrition.

** However, the reasons sometimes varied. While in e.g. [=GULAGs=] and [[UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust Nazi concentration camps]] this was played straight, in the British concentration camps (from UsefulNotes/TheSecondBoerWar - the Ur-concentration camps), where mainly Boer civilians were kept, many starved to death because most of the time there simply wasn't enough foodstuff to go around--or rather, the foodstuff existed somewhere in-theatre, but logistical problems (as well as simple British negligence and carelessness) kept it from arriving on time and in the correct quantities. Later concentration camps exploited this misfortune.
