* In the film ''The Freshman'' (not [[Film/TheFreshman that one]]) with Matthew Broderick and Marlon Brando, the evil, jaded rich people regularly dined on endangered animals as a thrill. Or at least, they thought what they were eating were endangered animals.

So a character [[ForTheEvulz relishes in the outcomes of their evil actions]]. Maybe they [[OrcusOnHisThrone stew in their own evil juices]]. Perhaps they are the kind that [[EvilPlan has a menu of dastardly deeds]] to choose from, or maybe they've just got a select few [[ChronicVillainy on speed dial to take-out]].

Overlaps quite nicely with the EvilPoacher, and is often the meal of the CardCarryingVillain. For the clothing equivalent, see FurAndLoathing.

FurAndLoathing. If the exotic animals are consumed because they get people high and/or confer special powers to the eater, that's MainliningTheMonster.

* The Patrician in the very first ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' book, ''Discworld/TheColourOfMagic'', dined on candied jellyfish. Strangely enough, WordOfGod says that this is actually Lord Vetinari, perhaps written by a younger and less experienced author (in later books, he eats only bread and water).
** The unnamed crazy gluttonous Patrician in ''Discworld/TheColourOfMagic'' almost exactly matches later descriptions of Mad Lord Snapcase, Vetinari's predecessor, and [[{{Fanon}} in fandom's consensus]] ''is'' Snapcase. He might've indeed been the ''original'' Pratchett's image of Vetinari, but it's evident that the character was ''heavily'' retooled for the Watch subseries. Apparently, the original fat and crazy Patrician lost the Vetinari's name and became Mad Lord Snapcase, while Vetinari became the MagnificentBastard we all know and love.
** Also, jellyfish is neither exotic (at least in some places on Earth), nor endangered. Jellyfish salad is a common ''hors d'oevre'' in Chinese cuisine, and jellyfish biomass is species-wise comparable with true fish.

* In ''OryxAndCrake'' and the companion novel The Year of the Flood, there is a restaurant called Rarity which is supposedly named that because they have the right sanitary practices to serve rare meat, but in fact have a back-room business in the meat of endangered or extinct animals.
