* In the TCG ''TheSpoils'', the card "Smear Campaign" portrays a (literal) fatcat senator frantically ripping down pictures of him about to chow down on a human infant, some of which are captioned "BABY EATER!"

* A [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons Dragon magazine]] article used this scenario as an example of a sort of WHAMLine to introduce the fact that you're working for a secretly DeadlyDecadentCourt: you've accomplished the task set out before you, driving away brigands or retrieving a lost heirloom or whatnot, and are invited to a feast by the local baroness. It's a night of extravagance and merriment, then the main course is served, a barbequed [[HalfHumanHybrid dragonborn]] infant. Which she and the court [[WickedCultured carve, serve, and daintily consume like it was a Thanksgiving turkey]]. Suggested bonus points go to any party members that join in, [[RefugeInAudacity especially if there's a dragonborn in your party]]!

* In Chapter 28 of the ''Literature/HorusHeresy'' novel "Angels of Caliban," the Night Haunter claims that he likes children because "they're tasty." Considering [[FauxAffablyEvil his attitude]], it's unclear if he's joking.

* Havoc from ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' was an uber-powerful contractor whose remuneration was drinking the blood of children. There's a ''reason'' she [[BroughtDownToNormal doesn't want her powers back]].
** Worse, it's implied that it didn't actually have to be from children.
* ''{{Hellsing}}'':
** Played straight in the ''{{Hellsing}}'' OVA and manga, where one of Millennium's vampire soldiers is seen with a baby in his jaws.
** In the ''{{Hellsing}}'' television series, it appears as though Incognito enjoys stewed babies. Possibly; it is a little hard to tell what exactly he's eating there, but it sure ''looks'' like stewed babies.

* In Myth/GreekMythology, 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]].\\

* Done in Webcomic/BrunoTheBandit by the main villain of the ''Good Guy'' storyarc, a parody of TheSwordOfTruth series. The villain himself, a parody of Darken Raal, is seen munching on a baby leg during a televised interview where he's explaining how not evil he is. Another character tries to defend this by saying that its a baby from the overlords own realm so its not as evil.
