* The original draft of ''[[OzBooks The Patchwork Girl of Oz'' had a chapter where a colony of PlantPeople similar to the Mangaboos who had a garden where humans were literally grown, presumably for food. A surviving illustration Neill's show plants with the heads of humans (children included) being watered by their growers. Baum eventually considered the chapter too morbid and omitted it.

* Discussed in ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''. [[spoiler: While talking with Grisha Yeager, Eren Kruger states that this is the true purpose of the Eldian Internment Zones. While Marleyan propaganda presents the camps as merciful, in reality the camps exist to maintain a captive population of Eldians under the government's control. Since Titans are a cornerstone of the nation's military, every single Eldian born within the camps is a potential weapon. Furthermore, Kruger points out that once military technology renders the Titans obsolete, it's likely that Marley will simply carry out a FinalSolution against the now-useless Eldians]].

* The FirstEpisodeSpoiler of ''Manga/ThePromisedNeverland'' is that the idyllic orphanage the main characters live in is in fact a meat farm. The children that leave the home to be adopted are in fact being killed and collected by demonic looking creatures. Following this discovery, Emma and Norman set themselves to discovering the ins and outs of their captivity in the hope of setting everyone free before the next shipment is due. [[spoiler:They later discover they were relatively fortunate since they were raised in free-range farms. Most children are born and raised in the demons' version of '''factory farms'''.]]
