* ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'':
** While Order-class dragons helped people grow stronger and become better, Elma reveals they typically required humans to sacrifice themselves to help others in their group ([[ObsessedWithFood Elma herself preferred offerings of high quality meals]]).
** Tohru actually complained about the cliche of young maidens always being the sacrifices back when she first met Kobayashi.
--->'''Tohru''': Yesh!! Don't think that all dragons are lolicons who ask for little girl sacrifices!! [[DragonsPreferPrincesses Princess moe my ass]]!!

* In the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' episode "The Terror Beyond", Hawkgirl mentions that her home planet, Thanagar, used to worship the EldritchAbomination [[CaptainErsatz I]][[CthulhuMythos cthultu]] and sacrifice people to it in exchange for knowledge. They eventually decided this was a bad idea. Dr. Fate tries to perform the Thanagarian ritual sacrifice to prevent Icthultu from gaining access to our universe. Since his subject is the zombie Solomon Grundy, he would have just resurrected eventually (and in fact does during ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'', though it's shown that he CameBackWrong), but either way, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero the Justice League interrupts the sacrifice before it can be completed]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'', being a quite demon-heavy DarkFantasy series, naturally features this a lot. It's a common practice of the various [[ReligionOfEvil demon cults]] and other followers of the Seven Great Evils, and some of the more despicable human villains, such as Archbishop Lazarus, Maghda, and [[spoiler:Adria]] use human sacrifice in order to further their goals.

When this shows up in media, it's usually the driver for a rescue plot, though in the case of horror, it is not uncommon for the protagonists to fail. Or to wind up sacrificed themselves.

Added DiffLines:

* This is common motif in the {{Mythopoeia}} of ''Literature/TheCrocodileGod,'' as it focuses on the precolonial Tagalog culture of the Philippines, and their shared cultural ties with ancient Polynesians. However, this does not make it a ReligionOfEvil; sacrifices were mainly practiced out of desperation, ironically to one of their NICEST gods--Haik, the Tagalog sea-god as well as the [[CharacterTitle title's crocodile-god.]] In Mirasol's [[{{Reincarnation}} first lifetime,]] she was a chief's daughter who was (almost) ritually drowned as an offering to Haik because the village was suffering a drought, but [[TakeAThirdOption he rescued her and gave them a dying whale for food.]] It's implied that this is why Haik began their ReincarnationRomance several lifetimes later, as he notes that she's been spiritually open to connecting with him ever since.

* ''Film/KingArthurLegendOfTheSword'': Vortigern kills both his wife and daughter for power from the eldritch creatures, though he's very upset about it both times. It doesn't stop him though.

** Not so subtle in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'', [[spoiler:The Lion War]] is a massive human sacrifice to awaken Ultima the Bloody Angel. And it works, though not before Adrammelech tosses his own life force into the proverbial altar.
