* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Sigzil tells of a people who give their convicted criminals a choice: Either be executed, or be set out as bait for the local [[{{Kaiju}} greatshells]], which have valuable [[GemHeart gemhearts]].

They rarely survive more than two days, but criminals always take the deal, because the hope of survival is better than the certainty of execution.

* In ''Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'', the titular guide mentions that the best way to annoy a vogon is to feed their grandmother to the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal. It also mentions that a vogon won't save their grandmother unless they received an order signed in triplicate, sent in, sent back, queried, lost, found, subjected to public inquiry, lost again, and finally buried in soft peat for three months and recycled as firelighters.

* Apostles in ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' are fond of forcing their subjects to send them people to eat, such as the Baron of Koka Castle and the Count.
** In addition, this is the intended result of sacrificing someone to the Godhand so that one can be reborn as a demon, with the person in question often being EatenAlive.
* In ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'', the Priestess is technically a VirginSacrifice for the [[TheFourGods Beast God]] she summons. It also functions as a SecretTestOfCharacter; if she uses her wishes [[GreaterNeedThanMine for the good of others over herself]] ''and'' [[PluckyGirl possesses enough strength of will]], she can escape having her soul eaten. [[spoiler: Out of the four priestesses, two (Miaka and Suzuno) escape, since both are too plucky to be devored. The third (Takiko) [[IllGirl was dying already]] ''and'' [[HeroicSelfDeprecation her strong will was paired with lots of self-hate]], so Genbu started to eat her soul and her dad {{mercy kill}}ed her. The fourth (Yui) is fully devoured due to having been first broken and then manipulated by Nakago, but Miaka uses one of her wishes to bring her BackFromTheDead.]]
** Also, there was a snow-demon in the novel that explains Nuriko's backstory that demanded a more conventional VirginSacrifice from the village nearby. [[spoiler: Nuriko befriends the girl about to be sacrificed, Byakuren, and attempts to save her; however, she ends up being eaten in an HeroicSacrifice to protect Nuriko himself.]]
