* 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. [[spoiler: This gets exploited in Volume 3, when Cinder causes a panic by tricking Pyrrah into killing Penny on live-television: the amount of fear and anger draws in every Grimm for miles around, overwhelming Vale's defenses and leaving the city in ruins.]]

** In the episode "Polymorph" the eponymous shapeshifter drains negative emotions, such as fear and anger, from whoever they touch. It turned into a snake and tried its main form (which happened to be an eight-foot tall armor-plated alien monster to scare Lister) so it could drain his fear; it turned into a cat woman to drain the Cat's vanity; it turned into Rimmer and told Kryten that Cat getting attacked was Kryten's fault so it could drain his guilt; and it turned into Rimmer's mother and slept with Lister in order to drain Rimmer's anger.
---> '''Polymorph (as Rimmer's mom):''' ... The things this boy can do with alphabetti spaghetti.
---> '''Rimmer:''' ''ALPHABETTI SPAGHETTI?!''
::Getting their emotions sucked out resulted in the crew going through personality changes[=:=] A fearless Lister became a SociopathicSoldier obsessed with sacrificing himself in order to kill the Polymorph in the most violent way possible; The Cat losing his vanity turned him into a filthy bum who didn't care about himself in any way; Kryten with no guilt became a jerk who insulted everyone at every opportunity and wanted to hand the others over to save himself; and an angerless Rimmer became a sort of hippie who thought attacking the Polymorph meant fundraiser concerts and tee-shirts.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/KimNewman's ''Literature/BadDreams'' features The Kind, who feed on humanity's emotions and imaginings. Some of them are emotional vampires who specialise in negative emotions; others act as muses to great creative minds. One way and another, they did quite well out of Hollywood.

* ''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.
