* ''Testament'', by David Morrell. The protagonist and his daughter have to [[TryAndFollow hide above the snow line in a winter forest from implacable pursuers]]. The daughter dies, and the father is so desperate for food he wonders if he can bring himself to eat her. Fortunately a wolf which stole some food from their fire earlier returns with an animal it's killed -- turns out it liked the taste of the cooked meat and wants the human to make more.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheFifthSeason'''s setting has periodic "Seasons" where it turns into a barren DeathWorld, so although every walled community has large food caches reserved, it's a fact of life during a Season that "You don't think about the meat." That said, while people tacitly accept it when it's necessary, one group of [[AristocratsAreEvil snobby Sanzed elites]] have had a bad reputation for over a millennium since they [[ImAHumanitarian maintained the practice voluntarily]] after a Season ended.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Discussed. When it becomes clear that [[LittleStowaway Reynir]] is going to be staying with the crew over the duration of the mission, the first thing on everyone's mind, including Reynir's own, is what this is going to mean for their food supply. All Reynir can really do about it is apologize and promise to not eat too much. Mikkel, the man he's aplogizing to, happens to like trolling people, so his reply includes (hopefully) joking that in the worse case scenario, they can always eat Reynir.

* Discussed in ''Literature/TheThinMan'', when Nick tells Gilbert a long and rambling story about frontier cannibalism. Reportedly, Nick's story was the inspiration for the movie ''Film/{{Ravenous}}'' (listed above), which it very closely resembles.

* ''Film/{{Ravenous}}'' has a group of pioneers who became stranded in the mountains and turned to cannibalism. However, because the film is also a take on the {{wendigo}} myth, anyone who eats other people gains that person's strength/life force, a HealingFactor that can overcome virtually all injuries or disease... and a HorrorHunger that compels them to continue eating more people. The film's villain is the last survivor of that pioneer group, and who, after eating everyone else in the group, is [[SuperStrength superhumanly strong]], [[MadeOfIron tough]], and absolutely determined to continue devouring others.

Compare EatTheDog, ReducedToRatburgers and ColdEquation. Contrast ImAHumanitarian, where the character eats their fellow human out of enjoyment. When ravenous animals or monsters eat their own kind routinely, without acknowledging there's anything wrong about it, that's MonstrousCannibalism.
