* ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}''. ''Ka•Ge'' magazine Volume 1 Issue 9 short story "Wonderland". The evil monster threatening the protagonists feeds on the emotion of fear in its victims.

to:

* ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}''. ** In addition, certain spirits, like the [[TheHeartless Yama Kings of Kowloon Walled City]], feed on the negative emotional energies of places full of despair and horror.
** [[OurVampiresAreDifferent HMHVV-type I sufferers]] drain [[LifeEnergy Essence]] through strong emotions, usually leaving the victim emotionally drained in the process. While the emotion itself isn't what they feed on, it's the vehicle by which Essence is drained so the effect is indistinguishable from the trope.

* The Grimm from ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' are drawn to negative emotion. Feelings like fear, sorrow, or anger will cause Grimm to congregate to the source. The more intense theses feelings, the more Grimm are drawn.

Due to the RuleOfDrama, an emotion eater will rarely feed on positive emotions. Instead they will more likely draw nourishment from fear, hate, envy, or lust, and the process of seeding these emotions can turn Suburbia into a gangland ghetto. If they ''do'' feed off of positive emotions, expect them to drain the ability to ''feel'' these emotions from their victims, turning them into an EmptyShell. If they don't, we could just call it empathy.

* The [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]] of ''{{Karin}}'' nourish themselves with emotions taken along with the victim's blood. In something of a subversion, [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire they exclusively drain negative emotions (such as despair, pride, or taking pleasure in lying), and leave their victim better off than prior to the bite (albeit a bit weak from blood loss)]]. The effect is only temporary, however.

* This seems to be part of [[{{Naruto}} Hidan's]] reason for being a Jasshinist. The more pain he causes his victims before finally killing them, the more he seems to enjoy it. When he finally killed [[spoiler: Asuma]] it was a narcotic high.
