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 {{Empty Shell}}s. If they don't, we could just call it empathy.

For all the talk about how villainous Emotion Eaters are, albeit well-deserved, it should be noted that there ''are'' comparatively rare cases of those who use their powers benevolently.

Some monsters [[ColePorter get no kick from champagne. Mere alcohol doesn't thrill them at all.]] It's the ''[[EvilTastesGood taste]]'' of someone else's emotions that does it for them. An Emotion Eater is someone who [[HorrorHunger draws psychic nourishment]] or power from another person's emotions, and will usually do what they can to instill those emotions in others.

** The Emotion Entities from ''ComicBook/GreenLantern''. As long as there is at least one being in the universe that can feel the emotions they embody, they will always exist. Although they do not feed on the emotions they embody. They are in fact the avatars of the combined power of each emotion (rage, greed, fear, will, hope, compassion, love) felt by every being in the universe.
