* Some giants in ''Literature/TheBFG'' like specific kinds of human meat. Only the Bloodbottler explicitly prefers a specific body part (take a wild guess what it is), but some other giants have names that likely indicate their favorite body parts to eat (Bonecruncher, Gizzardgulper) or their favorite types of people to eat (Manhugger, Maidmasher, Childchewer). The Bonecruncher is also considered a picky eater because he likes Turkish people, who apparently (ha ha) taste like turkey.

The giants will also go out of their way to avoid Greeks due to them tasting like grease.

ImAHumanitarian is the supertrope ''if'' the feeder is also a human (although, technically, this also works for other species that eat their own kind). If he's not then see ToServeMan. BrainFood is a subtrope. Those who are unfit for eating are usually TooSpicyForYogSothoth. Only distantly related to PickyEater, which is rejecting normal foods out of immaturity.

* Creator/OrsonScottCard's short story "Kingsmeat". Yup, it's exactly what you think it is. The alien king and queen would kill a person and only use a small part for their meals, so the 'shepherd' convinces them to let him merely remove what they want and let the people keep living. When the people are liberated, the people reward the shepherd with many gifts, and also remove those body parts he doesn't strictly need to survive (though they leave him his eyes).

The horror quotient can really be ramped up if the part the monster is interested in can be extracted without immediately killing the victim. The victim can then suffer a slow, screaming death in front of their companions and the audience as the monster painfully extracts its chosen food. Also a partially consumed corpse can be stumbled over announcing to the audience and the characters that something is rotting in Denmark.
