* In the manwha ''VagrantSoldierAres'', the titular character names a crow that follows him around, "Emergency Ration." His definition of "Emergency" is a bit loose though.

** This actually happens quite often in ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', since in the future we apparently have less strict diets and eat animals that are considered off limits today, such as parrot and peacock (the gag is that 21st Century preservation methods worked too well, and now the animals are overabundant). Nibbler also devours any animal indiscriminately, and so does Zoidberg, though Zoidberg usually sticks to small animals. It's established that humans find it acceptable to eat any animal that's not intelligent. That means individually. A particularly stupid family of dolphins is mentioned as being fair game.

* Schlock in ''WebComic/SchlockMercenary'' is an ExtremeOmnivore, and has no problem eating animals most people think are cute.[[note]]For that matter, he has no problem eating people most animals think are cute, either. A particular running joke is that when Schlock says he loves kittens he doesn't mean it in the same way most people would, though we've never seen him actually ''do'' it.[[/note]]

* When ''ComicBook/GrooTheWanderer'' first meets the dog Rufferto, Rufferto thinks he's found a caring new master, but what he sees as Groo's affection is really just hunger. Soon afterward there's a story where Groo thinks he ''has'' eaten Rufferto, and is overwhelmed with guilt. When Rufferto finally shows up alive and well Groo really does become a caring master.

* There's some evidence that at least one of the original times that dogs were domesticated was to serve as a food source that would willingly follow humans around and could survive on table scraps, with the use as a hunting companion and guard animal coming later.

* The ''WhateleyUniverse'', where Sara/Carmilla sucks the souls from dogs and other animals with her tentacles, for most meals. Yes, she's one of the [[NobleDemon good guys]], at least at the moment... But the way she eats cause her tons of grief, especially early on. She very blatantly had puppies in her box at least once. And a lot of times old, worn out dogs who suffered more by living, and seemed to ''want'' a release from it. Right from the local pound in [[LovecraftCountry Dunwich]].

* ''VideoGame/SunlessSea'' has a Comatose Ferret, a mascot which gives 1 stat point to your charisma / healing skill when equipped. It's clearly not as useful as every other mascot in the game, but if you're out of food and your crew is starving, there's not much point in keeping it any longer - especially since your hunger causes you to hallucinate it being a giant sausage. [[PrettyInMink Unless you want the sociopathic fashionista gunnery officer to turn it into a hat instead]].
** SunlessSkies will have An Obviously Delicious Rabbit. [[CaptainObvious Which is delicious]]. [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Obviously]].

** A later episode had Ash catch a Krabby (no prizes for guessing which animal inspired it's conceptů), and it's sent to Prof. Oak's lab. When Ash contacts him, he has a plate of crab with him. Krabby's fine, though.

* In ''Manga/{{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...
* Inverted in ''Manga/CageOfEden''. One girl declares that a turtle she found will be dinner, leading to a discussion on how turtle meat is prepared. The girl admits that she was joking, and lets the turtle go...only for it to be revealed later on that she kept the turtle on a leash.

* During an arc in {{Wolverine}} the eponymous anti-hero was being stalked across Canada by a Cylla, a half-cyborg and Bloodscream, a vampire, who occasionally captured a local to drag along in case he got hungry. Towards the end of the arc they were both starving to death. Luckily Bloodscream had one sheep left in his flock...

** Also, caused much {{Squick}} in an episode where The Goodies are trying to write a nice, clean song that'll make the charts...but they have to make a filthy song first to be discovered. Thus, Bill writes one seconds before they go on a show with a talent agent. It's called "Mommy, I Don't Like My Meat", and is about a man with a wife and child. He can't work because of his broken leg, and thus slaughters their pets to feed their child.

** One comic 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...)
** Another cartoon has a man and a cow in a lifeboat. [[MeatOVision The man looks at the cow and sees steak, the cow sees the man as covered in grass and flowers...]]

* Because of lack of provisions, the Lewis and Clark expedition had to be pretty...creative when traveling the Louisiana Purchase Territory. It was mentioned that they found dogs to be particularly tasty, something which one Native American tribe in the Pacific Northwest apparently found appalling. Somewhat ironically, the crew had a pet Newfoundland that they kept with them, though there was never speculation to eat it.
