* In ''VideoGame/RuleOfRose'', the bunny that Wendy takes care of is implied to be this. While most inhabitants of the orphanage probably see it as livestock, it is left ambigious, if Wendy thought of it as that or a pet. [[spoiler: [[AvertedTrope She sees it as worthless lifestock.]]]]

* A cutscene in ''Videogame/FreedomFighters'', the scrolling text during a Soviet propaganda news broadcast tells the people of [[InvadedStatesOfAmerica New York City]] that they can surrender their pets at a predetermined spot if they can not feed them. The same text scroll mentions that anyone needing extra food can pick up cheap meat at that same address.

** In one of the chapter-opening "quotes" in ''ChildrenOfTheMind'': A man always keeps his dog around even though it cannot be taught anything useful or funny. His friends tell him, "That's not a dog, it's a wolf." Then there's a plane accident and the man is terribly injured. The dog strolls up and begins chewing on him, and his last thoughts are "Thank goodness at least one of us will not starve." "This is the most beautiful story I know."

** Similarly in ''Xenocide'', a character tells the story of a man and his beloved pet dog. The dog would learn no tricks, performed no useful function, and did not even seem particularly affectionate, but the man loved it. Then the man and his dog got into a plane crash in the mountains. The man was pinned under some debris, but the dog was largely unharmed. Unperturbed, the dog trotted up to the man and, rather than attempt to aid him in some way, began to eat his exposed entrails. The man's last thought was, "Oh, good. At least one of us will not starve." The purpose of this story is a matter for interpretation, but it appears to be an {{Aesop}} about unselfish love. Or something.

* More a literal example than following the trope, but in The Tamuli (Second half of TheElenium), Ulath and Tynian convince their troll companion to eat dogs, since a troll's usual food of choice, people or horses, would draw far too much attention to them. The [[RunningGag joke starts running from there]] when various issues crop up, from Blohkw offering to share the dog to other issues.

* In {{Cyborg 009}}, the Pu'Awak humanoid race is used as this by the Athans, a race of scientifically advances winged dinosaurs. The Black Ghost group comes in and offers help, but soon they prove themselves to be just as bad as the Athans, and force the five Pu'Away princesses to be a part of their plans...

* There are several references to lyorn legs being served as meat in the {{Dragaera}} novels. A lyorn is essentially a large dog with a horn on its head.

** Indeed, they were rather fond of that Newfoundland. At one point, a certain tribe kidnapped the dog and planned to eat it themselves; the expedition members threatened to raze their village to the ground if the dog was not returned.

* ''ComicStrip/TheFarSide'' spoofed this, with a group of five castaways on a raft drawing straws to see which of them will be eaten, despite one of them being a dog. One of the people loses. (WordOfGod says the dog looks very smug at this outcome...)

** The Franky Family's {{team pet}}s, Sodomu and Gomorra had an origin similar to Chopper. The Franky Family found them inside a Sea King they were eating, and Franky decided to save them for later, as he and his men were full. Then Franky got all protective when some pirates hurt the pair.
