[[folder:Fan Works]] * Inverted completely in the ''Franchise/{{Shadowchasers}}'' franchise. Not only can vampires eat normal food, they brew and market some of the most expensive wines available. ''The Blue Blood'' in [[CityOfAdventure Backwater]] has some ''very'' expensive cocktails available; included Falkmoon a potent vintage that was invented by vampires that requires centuries of aging. A small glass sells for nearly $500. [[/folder]]

* An inversion in ''AVampyreStory'': Mona, our heroine, is a vampire. This is established fact. But Mona is in hardcore denial that this is the case, and claims that she's under a curse. A curse that gives all the symptoms of being a vampire, without being a vampire. To maintain her delusion, she claims that what she drinks is wine (it helps that her captor gets the stuff himself, so she never actually sees where it comes from). By the time the game begins, this is already a very old argument between Mona and her buddy Froderick the bat, who sarcastically refers to it as a salty-tasting merlot with a slight iron aftertaste. She actually delivers variations on the line when presented with other beverages.

* In ''[[Manga/DragonBall DragonBall Z]]'' Piccolo and Namekians in general only consume water because they're photosynthetic. That's right, Piccolo is a [[PlantAliens plant]]. Although before that revelation, Piccolo has been shown eating other things, mainly fish. The general consensus is that they only ''need'' water and sunlight, but are capable of eating. It may have to do with Kami (and therefore Piccolo) being from before the disaster that wiped out all Namekians except Guru, whose children may have been altered - much as King Piccolo's demon sons did not look like regular Namekians. Another factor could be that Namek has three suns, while Earth only has one.

* In ''UruseiYatsura'', the [[AncientAstronauts Oni]] can eat most human foods and even produce equivalents of their native dishes by [[FireBreathingDiner inhuman amounts of spice]], but some earth cuisine is beyond their capacity to handle. Umeboshi, which are basically pickled sour plums, get them totally plastered (humans, meanwhile, traditionally use them as a hangover and overindulgence remedy), though sake can cure them from being drunk, and they find the scent of garlic so strong and nauseatingly overpowering it has the same effect on them as tear gas.

* In the Creator/{{CLAMP}} series ''{{Wish}}'' Kohaku, being an angel, is nauseated by any food that's ever been alive, including plants (though she can eat honey); she gets her nutrition by bathing in sunlight.

* ''LoisAndClark'': Superman once tells Lois that he doesn't need to eat, but he likes to. Which is fairly evident since his pantry is stocked with almost nothing but junk food. * {{Sanctuary}}'s version of UsefulNotes/NikolaTesla, being a vampire, is implied to be able to survive perfectly well on a synthetic blood substitute that Magnus developed to avoid his need for blood. However his is also a first class wine snob and since he can't get drunk he usually makes serious inroads on Magnus's wine cellar whenever he visits for any length of time.

* Eli from ''LetTheRightOneIn'' declines when Oskar offers her[[spoiler:/him]] some candy, and when Oskar asks, "Don't you eat candy?" answers, "I can't." (Book version only; in the movie version, Eli eats the candy to please Oskar, and then becomes violently ill.)
