* In ''VideoGame/TheOregonTrail II'', if you take the California Trail (and more specifically the Hastings Cut-Off if you're playing on higher difficulties) in 1846, you encounter the same snowstorm that the Donner Party got stuck in. The game also allows you to [[EatTheDog butcher a draft animal]] if you run out of food, although you don't get to cannibalize your wagonmates. TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything!

*** NightmareRetardant comes in when you realize that [[FridgeLogic they could have given you the food as a "thank-you" before going on their way,]] because having a [[VendorTrash Hope]] [[TheMillstone Chest]] dumped on you might cause problems. Why not money? [[AssPull He's broke.]] [[FridgeBrilliance You're essentially using the same skills as you would be were you actually fishing if you're using a net.]]

Compare EatTheDog, ReducedToRatburgers and ColdEquation. Contrast ImAHumanitarian, where the eater truly enjoys eating human.

* The case of R v. Dudley and Stephens, where three shipwrecked sailors in a lifeboat murdered a fourth, started eating him and were rescued less than a week later. It's often taught in law-related classes, both because it established the important historical precedent that necessity is not grounds for justifiable homicide and because the teachers probably figure that at least it's one case the students are sure to remember.

* ''VisualNovel/GrisaianoKajitsu'': [[spoiler: Amane Suou's route features a high school field trip bus crash in an isolated forest in the mountains. Weeks pass without help and eventually with the food supply having dropped to effectively nothing, the survivor's first eat the dead puppy that a student smuggled with her to a field trip. That doesn't sustain them long enough as eventually some of the students start passing away from malnutrition or their injuries from the crash. The teacher 'conveniently finds' some meat at this point and distributes them to the students (Kazuki Kazami, a student partnered with Amane, refuses to eat it and successfully advises Amane to do likewise.) The meat turns out to be the remains of the dead students which he was supposed to have respectfully buried. Amane and Kazuki attempts to make their escape once it becomes apparent that at some point the teacher and the other students start to mentally degrade out of hunger and desperation to an aggressive ghoul state where they won't even wait for the other students to die on their own before consuming them.]]

* When VandalSavage discovered that his regenerative immortality was failing him, and all his secret organ banks had been dismantled by Lex Luthor's Society, he briefly attempted to spend the last of his days trying to kill the original Green Lantern. When this failed, and he was left alone in the rubbles of his base with only a clone of himself he created as part of the plan, he ended up eating the clone, both for food and to restore his immortality.
