* The [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Armada_Volume_1 first pack-in minicomic]] that appeared with many early ''WesternAnimation/TransformersArmada'' toys was widely considered underwhelming at best, and otherwise would've been forgotten by the fandom at large...if not for the [[http://www.marshmallowsupernova.com/2008/10/armada-real-story_26.html work]] of a certain fan who turned it into a RemixComic (which later became an AscendedMeme, [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/JaAm horrifyingly enough]], re-imagining the cast as buffoonish ignoramuses and turning Hot Shot in particular into a deranged, WordSalad-spewing CloudCuckoolander. At one point, Hot Shot threatens to eat Jolt's babies, despite that not being even ''remotely'' close to how Cybertronians reproduce.

* Parodied in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' with the Monster In The Dark; he mentions that [[BigBad Xykon]] tries to feed him babies, but he finds the idea creepy, so it "just moves them around on my plate then throws them in the trash." The strip is [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0549.html here]] (don't worry, the kid survives...but for ''[[FridgeLogic how long]]''?).

* ''[[Literature/TheLaundrySeries The Fuller Memorandum]]'' has Bob giving a long internal monologue about the enduring nature of the Blood Libel - how every culture seems to have some outlying group that it defames with rumors of how they're so evil, they're willing to kill babies to provide blood for their holy rituals. Bob finally realizes to his horror that this legend has a basis in fact when [[spoiler: the Brotherhood of the Black Pharaoh, who currently have him captive, slaughter a newborn to start the ritual to bind an EldritchAbomination]].

* MarvelComics:
** A MarvelComics ''ComicBook/WhatIf'' (v2 #6, "What If... The Comicbook/XMen had lost Inferno?") had a demon-corrupted Wolverine get handed a squalling infant by N'astirh, followed by a claw-popping ''snikt!'' and a barely DiscretionShot of Wolverine bending over the child's body. Immensely disturbing.
** During the ''Comicbook/{{Inferno}}'' event in the main Marvel Universe, a few demons mention that "Nothing in Limbo [is] as good to eat as human babies," and come for the infants the ComicBook/NewMutants rescued earlier. The teens are able to drive them off. Whether or not the demons ate any other babies during the event (or even during Magik's tenure as ruler of Limbo) is thankfully left vague.

* In the early versions of "Literature/SnowWhite", where Snow White is only seven years old when she surpasses the evil queen in beauty. The queen send her into the wood with a huntsman; he has instruction to kill her and bring back her heart. He lets her go, kills a young deer and brings that heart back to the Queen, who then proceeds to ''eat it''.

* In "Literature/SunMoonAndTalia", an older variant of "Literature/SleepingBeauty", the prince actually rapes the princess while she's asleep, eventually impregnating her, and she wakes once she's given birth and one of the babies accidentally sucks the splinter of flax out of her finger. In the [[ValuesDissonance "happy"]] version, she winds up marrying the king after he first [[MurderTheHypotenuse executes]] his jealous wife(!); the ickier version has the princess, once she realizes what's been done to her, wind up so enraged she eats the babies.
** Let's not forget that even in the "happy" version, the jealous former queen attempted to coerce the cook into making the children into supper. In some versions she gives almost ''Series/{{Frasier}}''-like culinary instructions as to how she wants them cooked, to the point that it reads like a satire.

Beth and Jerry find an alien hidden under the garage, and one of Jerry's arguments against the creature is that it eats babies. Said alien gets free and launches [[CrowningMomentofFunny arguably one of the funniest]] [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech The Reason You Suck speeches]] of all time.

-->'''Blim Blam''': Um, first of all, hello. Uh, my name is Blim Blam the Korblok. Second of all, cards on the table, I'm a murderer that eats babies, and I came to this planet to eat babies. However, I am also carrying a highly infectious disease that I suppose you could call "space AIDS" as you put it, and Rick did chain me up so that he could attempt to cure it. [Beth serves Jerry] At the same time, Rick's motivation to cure my disease was not to save my life or anyone else's, but to patent and sell the cure for billions of Blemflarcks. [Jerry serves back] But you know the reason why I ripped my chains out of the wall? [confronts them] And do you know why I'm never coming back to this planet?! BECAUSE THE TWO OF YOU ARE THE FUCKING WORST!!! You both hate yourselves AND each other!! And the idea that it has ANYTHING to do with Rick is laughable. I'd laugh but I'm biologically incapable. That's how alien I am! And even I'm sitting here listening to the two of you and being like, "WHAT THE FUCK!?!" So good luck with your shitty marriage, and tell Rick I'm sorry he has to deal with EITHER of you. Blim Blam OUT.
