** In the successor game, ''Tabletopgame/VampireTheRequiem'', this quality leaves the Ventrue (in favor of [[TheCaligula a whole different Flaw]]), but shows up in some of the bloodlines; the Mekhet clan's Morbus (can only gain sustenance from those with a disease) and Brothers of Ypres (can only gain sustenance from blood that is tainted; they prefer poisons, but disease, drugs and radiation all count), and the Daeva clan's Anvari (gain less nourishment if they drink from people who aren't high on narcotics -- the blood must be tainted with opiates to have its full effectiveness for them).

** The 20th anniversary ''Dark Ages'' book for ''Masquerade'' introduces the Impundulu, an African bloodline who can only feed off their founder's descendants, the Bomkazi family of witches (who fortunately have the ability to heal). Trouble is, by the time of the game's setting in the 13th century, the Impundulu are running into problems, as the Bomkazi are becoming either so inbred they're developing problems, or so distant their blood can't sustain the Impundulu.

* ''Tabletopgame/{{Deadlands}}'' features plenty of monsters that prefer specific bits and pieces of people. One character even invokes this trope in the AfterTheEnd sequel when talking about intelligence gathering. It boils down to "if a monster's been eating spleens, you better know the whole situation, or you'll be minus one spleen."

** The Manananggal is often similarly picky in its choice of victims, with its traditional favorite food being the blood of pregnant women and the hearts of unborn babies.

* 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).

* Gaichu, a [[HeroicWillpower remarkably sane]] [[OurGhoulsAreCreepier ghoul]] from ''VideoGame/ShadowrunReturns: Hong Kong''. Ghouls [[HorrorHunger have to eat raw metahuman flesh to survive]]. For most ghouls, that means devouring flesh off the bone, either from a pilfered rotting corpse or a recent kill. For Gaichu, that means expertly prepared sashimi, brined to bring out the collagen and lightly seasoned to give it some taste without leaving Gaichu sick. As the player character may found out the hard way, [[IAteWhat it looks, smells, and tastes quite appetizing if you don't actually know what it is]].
