* Rick's, a restaurant in the {{Nightside}}, specializing in meals made from extinct or imaginary animals. Not as bad as most examples, as the Nightside is a nexus for hundreds of alternate and fantastic worlds, so Rick can presumably procure his meats from worlds where the animals in question are abundant.

* The futuristic setting of ''{{Transmetropolitan}}'' allows for many (usually vat-grown) delicacies such as caribou eyes or "Leg of Bastard" (that is, human). Some [[ImAHumanitarian humanitarians]] prefer to save money by catching door-to-door political canvassers or other easy prey.

* The DavidLynch film adaptation of ''Film/{{Dune}}'' had an inexplicable throwaway scene of Rabban crushing a live mouse in a small device and then drinking the resulting mess with a straw. Yes, the man is generally referred to as "The Beast Rabban", but still.... ''subtle'', Lynch.

* It's not unheard of for the more extreme members of Ashwood Abbey from ''HunterTheVigil'' to eat, drink the blood of, or [[MainliningTheMonster make drugs out of]] supernatural creatures.

* 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]].

* ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' had this in the episode where the cast found the Rabbit Talisman. On an endangered [[TheTortoiseAndTheHare Tortoise]] that a villain was planning to dine upon.

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.
