* ''[[ComicBook/RobinSeries Robin]]'' villain Johnny Warren unwillingly drains the life out of his own mother to heal the damage caused when a demon possessed him. He does seem to get over his trauma rather quickly and goes on to drain the life out of many others as he tries to take over the Gotham mafia.

** Spoofed and subverted in a different Butters episode. The little idiot is under the impression that the vampire clique kids turned him into a real vampire. In reality, they got him some clothes from Hot Topic. Butters believes he is incapable of eating normal food after that, never even trying to do so. He also finds the "blood" (read: clamato juice) the vamp kids give him disgusting ("Ugh, it's all cold and clammy"). Getting increasingly hungry, but never any smarter, he tries to "feed" on [[AssholeVictim Cartman]], only managing to give him a hickey. He goes back to eating regular food as if nothing happened after [[ItMakesSenseInContext helping the goth kids burn down the Hot Topic]], believing that doing so turned him back into a human.

* An early ''ComicBook/{{Hellblazer}}'' story featured a "famine demon" who would cause people to develop an insane hunger-- not just for food and drugs but things they desired like ''clothing and jewelry''. One memorable moment has a bodybuilder suddenly sink his teeth into the biceps he was just admiring. The source of the demon was eventually discovered to be [[spoiler: one of John's old bandmates, who was a drug addict. In order to contain the demon, John and Papa Midnite had to seal him into a wall -- ''alive''.]]

* In ''ComicBook/OrphanBlade'', the Kasha Mask renders its wearer impervious to pain and grants them a an ability to heal from otherwise dire injuries as long as the head is intact. The downside is that the wearer is afflicted with an insatiable hunger for human flesh, which is also required in order for the healing factor to work. Long-term use also results in the wearer engaging in compulsive self-mutilation.

** "Craving" had a meteor freak overweight girl who tried smoothies made from kryptonite fertilized home-grown vegetables. [[WeightLossHorror It made her slim down all right... and crave calories, especially fat. She sucked all the fat out of a roadkill deer and tried to do the same to a classmate.]] For some reason whenever she did this her mouth stretches a couple of feet down (is this BodyHorror ?). She realized what was happening to her and spectacularly [[StuffBlowingUp destroyed her greenhouse]]. They said she was taken to "a hospital", where God only knows how they will find a way to contain and cure her.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'''s oracle curse of hunger is this : an oracle afflicted by this curse gains no benefit from magic effects that provide sustenance, gains a secondary bite natural attack that deals decent damage and suffers a painful hunger attack at the beginning of every encounter that gives the sickened condition and lasts until the oracle deals damage with his bite attack (ideally to an enemy).

* It's easy to forget in the semi-SugarBowl that is ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' that most of its cast are, in fact, man-eating [[{{youkai}} monsters]]... Really, really {{Cute Monster Girl}}s wearing {{Pimped Out Dress}}es, sure, but man-eating monsters none the less. It's a DownplayedTrope since there's an agreement between the youkai and humans of [[FantasyKitchenSink Gensoukyou]] not to kill each other but, guess what? Humans from the outside world that happen to stumble into Gensoukyou ''are fair game''. It's even more-or-less outright stated that people who go "missing" in the outside world are actually abducted by [[RealityWarper Yukari]] [[TheChessmaster Yakumo]] in order for her to feed the inhuman inhabitants of Gensoukyou.

* Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate brings in Deviljho and it's savage variant, both having insatiable appetites and a tenancy of depopulating the local fauna due to their hunger. Their quick time escape event has them eating the hunter, and doing the most damage of any similar event. Even other monsters find his hunger a horror, and try to flee the area whenever this nightmare arrives, and rightly so as it will intentionally KILL. AND. EAT. THEM.

* The Dead Money DLC for ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' presents us with Dog, [[SplitPersonality one half of the divided personalities within a schizophrenic Nightkin]]. Dead Money's overall story carries a theme of [[greed]], and Dog represents the theme too: he is hungry. Uncontrollably, pathologically hungry. If he can't maintain a steady diet to keep his hunger under control, eventually he can no longer resist it and will simply feast upon anything edible within reach, no matter how he has to crush it to fit - [[Humanoid Abomination Ghost People]], explosive collars, [[IAmAHumanitarian humans]]...

* In ''Videogame/{{Destiny}}'', the Hive's gods, Oryx, Savathun, and Xivu Arath, formed a covenant with the [[EldritchAbomination Worm Gods, servants of the Darkness]], to gain immense power in exchange for being bonded to a symbiotic "worm" that feeds off the [[{{Mana}} Light]] of living beings slain by their host. Should the flow of Light ever be interrupted, the worm symbiote would instead begin feeding on their host. In order to get around this and further their endless crusade of wreaking death upon the rest of the universe for being too weak to oppose them, the Hive gods came up with a system of tribute, where lesser Hive creatures would take the Light from those they killed and keep enough to let them feed their own parasites and grow and become more powerful, and supply the leftover Light to their immediate superiors. These greater Hive entities would do the same, passing it up the chain until the tribute of Light reached the Hive gods, which would be fed to their symbiotes. During the "King's Fall" raid, the player Guardians take advantage of this by locating Oryx's tribute of corrupted Light and releasing it, leaving the Hive god suddenly starving and vulnerable to attack.
