* And a villainous example appears in [[Music/{{Vocaloid}} Kagamine Len's]] "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmOeqLHwn5g Dream-Eating Monochrome Baku]]," where the titular character eats the nightmares of a young girl but later returns to take away all her aspirations as payment. This is a rather unusual depiction of the baku, which is generally portrayed as a benevolent spirit. [[spoiler: The sequel song "[[http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm25994904 Sleeping Beauty]]" reveals that he ''is'' a benevolent spirit... to all of one person, who was his lover and died of an unspecified cause. He steals the dreams of other people and takes away their aspirations in order to give her the energy to stay alive, but in a vegetative state.]]

* Synonamess Botch's vulture minions from ''TwiceUponATime'' will sometimes find Figmen, who provide good dreams to people, and kill them, destroying the good dreams with them (the vultures deliver nightmares).

* An option in ''ChangelingTheDreaming''. While most changlings prefer to obtain [[{{Mana}} glamour]] by inspiring creativity, some are willing to "ravage" a human and simply take the glamour that they want.

* The 'Cubi race from ''Webcomic/DanAndMabsFurryAdventures'' are the mind-reading {{Emotion Eater}}s, who ''can'' enter and manipulate dreams and have an inaccurate reputation for stealing them, but are advised against entering people's dreams because [[AlwaysABiggerFish bigger]] [[EldritchAbomination fishes]] like to do it, too.
