* Noelle, a member of The Travellers, in ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' develops an increasingly monstrous appetite for animal flesh after receiving super powers, her cravings gradually grow as she starts sprouting body parts of various animals. [[spoiler: It is later revealed that Noelle suffered from an eating disorder before receiving her powers. When she tries to starve herself she loses control to the animal body parts that have sprouted in place of her lower body and ends up eating 40 people. Her power allows her to clone things she touches, when her last hope of a cure is destroyed she eats people and then regurgitate them regularly to avoid digesting them in order to continue cloning them. Her power forcing her to eat massive amounts of animal flesh and regurgitating people when she was already suffering from an eating disorder is a sort of wicked irony common with many powers in Worm.]]

* Several demon-possessed people/corpses in ''Anime/{{Nightwalker}}'' are shown eating fresh kills, both animal and human. Sufficiently self-aware possessees are horrified by their compulsion to eat raw flesh, but cannot control it. While the animated corpse-type demons are pretty mindless, the horror comes from the reactions of the heroes.

* ''Webcomic/{{Flipside}}'' villain Bloody Mary is cursed with Bloodlust by the sorcerer who created her, forcing her to sate her hunger with [[ImAHumanitarian human flesh]] or suffer terrible agony. When she captures [[PuritySue Maytag]], she learns the [[FantasticAesop important lesson]] that it's still [[ThePowerOfFriendship possible to be friends]] with someone while you're [[spoiler:[[FetishFuel eating]] [[{{Squick}} her arm]]]].

Speaking of vampires, any person [[EmergencyTransformation unwillingly changed]] due to a ViralTransformation and [[StagesOfMonsterGrief trying to be]] a "[[SlidingScaleOfVampireFriendliness good]]" [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]], [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]], or whatnot will have a ''very'' hard time of it, since starving themselves will likely cause them to [[WarmBloodbagsAreEverywhere lose control and attack the nearest person,]] loved one or not. If they're being starved by enemies like TheHunter, this is an incredibly effective and cruel torture. These supernaturals trying to be good will also have another hurdle to cross... EvilTastesGood, and {{Delicious Distraction}}s are ''[[WarmBloodbagsAreEverywhere everywhere]]''. So not only are they starving themselves, but they're like hungry children locked in a candy store... where ''[[HumanResources the candy is people]]''. Even in cases where the supernaturals don't ''need'' to consume humans to survive, the Horror Hunger creates conflict and provides an explanation for why the FriendlyNeighborhoodVampires find it so hard to quit.

* In ''NathanielKeene'', the titular character is turned into a vampire - and subsequently suffers this for human blood. Overlaps with WarmBloodbagsAreEverywhere.

* Gerald Tarrant in C. S. Friedman's ''ColdfireTrilogy'' can function as a [[NotUsingTheZWord kind of vampire]] if he really needs to, but his true needs are more complex: nightmares, coldness, darkness, and everything humans fear. To survive an ocean crossing in which he is deprived of his usual sustenance, he inflicts terrible nightmares on his stalwart companion [[ThePaladin Damien Vryce]] -- with the latter's agreement, because they've [[BetterTheDevilYouKnow teamed up to fight a worse evil.]]

* Most [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]] from ''TheLaundrySeries'' find humans - primarily their minds and souls - crunchy and good with ketchup. In fact, that's generally why the Earth is interesting to them in the first place. However, their insatiable hunger tends to make them ''less'' dangerous, as they tend to ignore anything past immediate feeding. And if a lesser predatory spirit is bound to a human, its host must periodically kill to feed it.

* In ''Fanfiction/ChrysalisVisitsTheHague'', changelings depend on sucking love from other creatures (just like in the show). It's implied they cannot digest actual food, and when they don't get to feed for too long, they become... [[HairTriggerTemper grumpy]]. For the sake of building a tepid relationship with her captors, Queen Chrysalis is ultimately thrown a dead chicken a day.

* The zombies of ''Series/iZombie'' require brains to remain stable. The longer they go without brains, the more irritable and slow-witted they get, eventually going "full Romero" - at which point, not even the reintroduction of brains to their diet will bring them back to sapience.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Franchise/TheWitcher'', the higher vampires like katakans and bruxae don't actually ''need'' blood to survive... but blood is akin to alcohol for humans, and vampires who become addicted to it show similar symptoms as alcoholism does in humans. Lesser vampires like ekimmaras, on the other hand, ''need'' blood to survive and feed on it aggressively, but they are often little better than animals themselves.


Added DiffLines:

* As noted above under the literature folder, higher vampires in ''Franchise/TheWitcher'' games don't need blood, but the taste is intoxicating and they can become addicted. Amusingly enough, one contract in ''Videogame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'' involves hunting a katakan who has developed a taste for ''alcoholic'' human blood, and drawing it out requires Geralt getting drunk. The player can also take advantage of vampires' need to feed with the Black Blood potion, which turns witcher blood into a deadly toxin that will poison any vampire that tries to feed mid-combat.
