* In [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greek Mythology]], Cronus (Kronos) does eat his offspring, since it was been prophesied that one of his own children will displace him. Rhea tricks him into swallowing a stone instead of Zeus and the prophecy comes true: Zeus (in disguise) and Rhea give Kronos some magically-drugged wine, which causes him to vomit up Hestia, Poseidon, Hera, Hades, and Demeter who help him overthrow Kronos and the other Titans. In Roman mythology, the story is the same; only the names change: Cronus becomes Saturn, Rhea is Cybele, and Zeus is Jupiter. The baby-eating itself has been the subject of paintings by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Rubens_saturn.jpg Rubens]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Saturno_devorando_a_sus_hijos.jpg Goya]].

* ''Literature/TheBible'' features this trope in 2 Kings Chapter 6. King Jehoram is sought out by a woman who out of desperation to survive a devastating famine cooked her baby and ate him alongside the woman she lived with. Said woman had promised that they would eat her baby the next day but later broke her promise and hid the baby which prompted the first woman to seek Jehoram's help.

** The description of Tepestani goblins in one of the {{Ravenloft}} Gazetteers mentions that goblins very much enjoy eating both human ''[[MonstrousCannibalism and goblin]]'' babies. This could be because the darklords who dominate Tepest are a trio of hags.

* One episode of ''{{WesternAnimation/Metalocalypse}}'' featured a "cannibalistic baby murderer" who has killed and eaten over 200 infants and toddlers. The episode ends half a second before he skewers a baby with a giant fork. Ironically, even [[EvenEvilHasStandards he's]] [[{{hypocrite}} appalled]] by Dethklok.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' skit "Preciouszilla" the title character is apparently questioned by a social service and reveals this secret... [[MakeMyMonsterGrow among other things]]
