A subtrope of IAteWhat and HumanResources. Can also involve CarnivoreConfusion without furries (or maybe with furries - see the paragraph on SpeculativeFiction above.) See ToServeMan for the AlienInvasion version of eating people. BrainFood for those not interested in mere muscles. See also LetsMeetTheMeat. Compare NoPartyLikeADonnerParty, in which persons are forced into cannibalism due to starvation. And when you get down to the bitter dregs, there's AutoCannibalism. Also see FatteningTheVictim, where people are fattened before being eaten.

* A RunningGag in ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' is how Yajirobe is considering invoking this trope: a deleted scene reveals he showed up during the battle with Vegeta because he smelled Yamcha's body cooking and ''almost'' considered eating him. Later, in the Androids saga, he agrees that Bulma's right not to hand her baby to him, as he's pissed and hungry, implying that he would eat baby Trunks. Later, he's confirmed to have eaten [[spoiler: the fetal clones of Mrs. Briefs.]]
** The talking pig Oolong is horrified when Krillin tries to serve him pork. Later, when Chiaotzu accidentally served him pork, he realizes to his own horror that he's delicious. In the BadFuture, Oolong tells Puar that he's 'made his peace' with the fact that at some point he'll have to eat pork, as all that's left to eat is pork rinds.

* In an example of an animal eating its own kind, ''Series/MythBusters'' tested the tale that a cereal box was more nutricious than its contents. In the cage where mice were fed cardboard, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ziQWDnFSPt8 one mouse decided that its fellow rodents were more nutricious than the cardboard.]] Even before then, there were signs that aught was amiss with the mice. [[ExecutiveMeddling Discovery Channel will not let the footage see the light of day.]]

** ''{{Hoodwinked}}'', the 2006 animated adaptation of this story, features a FridgeLogic example: a few police officers seen at Granny's house are pigs. But at the same time, we learn that Kirk sells schnitzel on a stick out of a truck. Schnitzel, for the record, is created from pork, which comes from pigs. Unless we to assume there are two different kinds of pigs - sentient and non-sentient types - existing in this part of the forest, you wonder what would happen if a pig ate something from Kirk's truck.

Note that this trope does apply to non-humans who are sentient or otherwise capable of independent thought or communication. Even if they only eat their own kind.

** In "The Irish Ballad," the protagonist "cut her baby brother in two / And served him up as an Irish stew / And invited the neighbors in."
** In "My Home Town," the local druggist "killed his mother-in-law and ground her up real well, / And sprinkled just a bit / Over each banana split."

** When DaveBarry held a survey for what his readers considered the worst songs ever made, this was one of the top finishers, despite being nowhere near as big a hit as the others. Barry noted that it made up for a lack of success with its extremely memorable subject matter.
