* ''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 guy 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.

* ''Film/{{Ravenous}}'', which was a take on the {{wendigo}} myth, where anyone who eats people gains power and life force. Spawning possibly the best closing line of any movie: [[spoiler:As the two men are caught in a bear trap, the villain says "If you die first, I am definitely going to eat you. The question is, if I die first... what are YOU going to do?"]]

* ''Film/{{Ravenous}}'', which was ''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, where anyone who eats other people gains power that person's strength/life force, a HealingFactor that can overcome virtually all injuries or disease... and life force. Spawning possibly the best closing line of any movie: [[spoiler:As the two men are caught in a bear trap, the HorrorHunger that compels them to continue eating more people. The film's villain says "If you die first, I am definitely going 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 eat you. The question is, if I die first... what are YOU going to do?"]]continue devouring others.

* When ComicBook/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.

* ''Film/Cube2Hypercube'': The hypercube itself holds multiple timelines, parallel dimensions, and other traps that will kill you. You could run into a copy of someone you saw shredded into ribbons previously who has actually just woken up. The villain eventually starts to hunt down other occupants and their alternate universe counterparts to ward off starvation by eating them. The heroine later encounters the villain looking grey, bedraggled, and covered in the nametags and watches from two of the other trapped victims. Looking at how much older he looks, coupled with the amount of watches and name tags he has, it's very inferred he had quite a healthy appetite over the years.

* An episode of the horror anthology ''Series/MastersOfHorror'' was "The Washingtonians". During the harsh winter at Valley Forge, UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington and the colonial troops resorted to cannibalism to survive. Unfortunately, Washington developed a taste for human flesh, quickly degenerating into ImAHumanitarian, and went out of his way to eat it. He professed a desire to turn America into a nation of cannibals. The Washingtonians are a secret conspiracy that has been hiding Washingtons true history, as well as indulging in cannibalism themselves.

* Played for horror in the creepypasta ''Fanfic/AxisPowersHetaliaEpisode235'', which is about a supposed LostEpisode of the anime in which the Axis characters are stranded on a DesertedIsland and [[spoiler: Italy is killed and eaten by a desperate Germany and Japan]].

** A more recent episode has the family trapped on a cruise ship that mistakenly believes there is a pandemic happening back on land (actually a movie Bart tricked them with, wanting to extend the family vacation due to the utter misery he and the others had been going through back home). After about 10 days out to sea, society onboard has devolved into a ''LordOfTheFlies'' scenario, and one passenger freaks out because she thinks she has eaten people meat. Its never outright stated that this happened, but its heavily implied.

** In the iPod version of the game the leader of the Donner Party shows up in a town and gives your party food, insisting that they've got [[TemptingFate more than enough to spare]]. Yeah...
** [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Originally]], if a member of a player's wagon train died while the train had reached starvation, the player's food supply was to increase slightly. One can guess where said food would have come from. Supposedly, everyone at MECC wanted this to be in the game, but management vetoed it.

Added DiffLines:

* An urban legend said this was commonplace in the mid to late forties in Germany (Both East and West). Multiple versions exist, some detail [[HeroicSacrifice people willingly choosing to sacrifice themselves or their relatives]], while others detail [[ScareEmStraight cannibal gangs roaming the streets at night preying on homeless people, drunks, or schoolchildren who stayed out too late]]. This hasn't been confirmed ''or'' denied.

** Ironically, the boats took a longer way to the land (southwards and then eastwards to South America instead of Marquesas Islands lying to the west) because the ailors feared that the islands might be inhabited by cannibal tribes.

* At the very end of the game, Six from ''[[VideoGame/LittleNightmares Little Nightmares]]'' has another one of her hunger attacks, and there is nothing in sight to eat but [[spoiler:the Lady]]. The [[spoiler:Nome she ate might also count as cannibalism, since they could very well be sentient creatures]].
