* Nightmares, the MonsterClown archenemy of The ''Podcast/ThrillingAdventureHour's'' Frank and Sadie Doyle, feeds off fear to grow powerful. This turns the Doyles into his personal kryptonite. Sadie finds clowns hilarious, so she can't take him seriously enough to be afraid and, thanks to Sadie, Frank no longer fears Nightmares despite his being Frank's childhood boogeyman. His second and third appearances focus on him finding ways to generate enough fear to make him powerful enough to manifest after being previously vanquished.

* The villain Bliss, from ''ComicBook/{{Starman}}'', is a demon who finds the despair of "special" people (carnival freaks) exquisite. However, when Jack confronts him, his meal is tainted with hope, weakening him to the point Jack and Mikaal can outright destroy him by combining energy blasts.

** Nyarlathotep from the ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona'' series also feeds on ''every single negative emotion'' of humanity, being the representation of humanity's negative emotions.

* Kogasa of ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' eats surprise. Unfortunately, she's not very good at surprising people.

On a wider scale, youkai are at least partly dependent on human fear; the tenuous balance between the Human Village and the youkai is laboriously maintained by Yukari and the most powerful factions.

** For example, one who feeds best on Anxiety might take up a job in a waiting room, allowing them to feed on the patients while earning their paycheck.

* In ''TheSecretsOfTheImmortalNicholasFlamel'', [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]] feed on emotions. Even blood-drinking vamps (who are considered the weakest class of vampire because of this. Stronger vampires don't need to drink blood to get emotions). This is used by a heroine, with permission, to make a scared and overwhelmed comrade feel better. Always nice to see a positive use of this trope.

Moved SCP Foundation entry to "Web Original." Removed weird own folder.
[[folder:Other Sites]] * ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'' ** There is some speculation among Foundation personnel that [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-589 SCP-589]] "The Price of Obsession" feeds off of the intense anguish it causes its obsessed victims after it leaves them. ** [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-708 SCP-708 ("The Big Orange Forklift")]]. Some Foundation scientists believe that SCP-708 feeds on its driver's enthusiasm. ** [[http://scp-wiki.net/scp-932 SCP-932 ("Night Feeder")]]. These creatures find a sleeping person, pin them down and wake them up. They then consume the fear the victim feels at the situation they're in. ** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1293 SCP-1293 ("Squeedle Deedle Dee!")]]. These creatures trick human beings into feeling certain emotions so they can feed on them. Type A feeds on feelings of unease and perturbation, and Type B feeds on feelings of confusion and bewilderment. Namely, As have convinced the researchers that they have to hand over their kids, so they can [[ItMakesSenseInContext draw them something to reproduce from]], and Bs simply show up in front of someone and do an impromptu musical act with no rhyme or reason. ** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1457 SCP-1457 ("Mourning Cloak")]]. The butterfly that is SCP-1457 absorbs sad memories from people and gives them to other people. The recipients feel emotions of loneliness and abandonment, which SCP-1457 then eats for sustenance. ** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1655 SCP-1655 ("Sorrow Tick")]]. Foundation scientists believe that SCP-1655 causes negative emotions in its victims in order to feed off those emotions. ** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-2018 SCP-2018 ("Museum of You")]]. SCP-2018 used to absorb the emotions that the museum visitors felt as they looked at the exhibits. It was inspired to create its own virtual museum to create exhibits relevant to the lives and memories of its visitors. [[/folder]]
