*** Actually, in ''Martian Manhunter, Vol. 2, #24'', it became canon that for Martians, Oreos (or in this case [[LawyerFriendlyCameo Chocos]]) are addictive. FridgeLogic sets in when one considers ''why'' exactly it's processed cookies, rather than say, chocolate.

FridgeLogic sets in when one considers ''why'' exactly it's processed cookies, rather than say, chocolate. Though recent studies show that rats actually do develop an addiction to Oreo cookies not too different from a cocaine addiction. Perhaps that also applies to DC martians.

* In Creator/DianeDuane's ''YoungWizards'' series, it turns out that most aliens go nuts over the taste of [[EverythingsBetterWithChocolate chocolate]]. A single bar of highest-quality Earth chocolate can be [[SeriousBusiness used as a bribe of staggering size]] under the right circumstances.

* The boggarts in the ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' setting ''Lorwyn'' are "addicted to new sensations" and will do all sorts of strange and dangerous things just to discover what they feel like. There's even a card called [[http://ww2.wizards.com/Gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?name=Sensation%20Gorger Sensation Gorger]]. The goblin in the art has his eyes pried open, ear trumpets in both ears, a skunk across his nose, a frog in his mouth, and sharp sticks stuck in all eight of his fingers.

This often happens to nonhumans [[VoluntaryShapeshifting who can transform]], and who only rarely choose a humanlike form [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith just to hang out with others]]. It's even more especially true for ''[[StarfishAliens really ]]''[[StarfishAliens alien Aliens]] with BizarreAlienBiology, and even more so for [[EnergyBeings creatures who don't even normally have a physical form]]. This and SenseLossSadness are two of the big reasons why HumanityIsInfectious.

* Remember the Society of Sensation we mentioned earlier? They show up again as a joinable faction in ''PlanescapeTorment'', and what with [[PlayerCharacter The Nameless One]] being a scar-riddled amnesiac immortal, boy do they get a kick out of ''you''.

* Penny has a brief instance of this in ''FanFic/TheRWBYLoops''; during the first loop where she is biologically human, she quickly sets out to experience all that having human senses have to offer with the help of Ruby and Sun. Later loops downplay it to a degree, as she primarily seeks out artificial noses to install and, eventually, use her RobotGirl status to record the experience of being human.

** Contrary to popular belief, the excesses of Slaanesh cultists aren't always [[SexIsEvil sexual]] in nature; it can be just about anything from finding out what is the most aesthetically pleasing pitch a person can scream at, to mindlessly staring at a wall painted a highly specific shade of purple. Slaanesh always leads to obsession, however - a simple pleasure like the sound of wood burning in a fire can be warped to the point where a Slaanesh cultist will start burning down houses just to get that sound, [[ItsAllAboutMe without even bothering to check if the house is occupied first]].

* [[TheHedonist Slaanesh]] in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' and ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' is a ''God'' of this. In a CosmicHorror kind of way.
** Slaaneshi followers tend to have their senses dulled out by constant exposure to all kinds of stimulation, forcing them to commit more and more extreme thing to be able to feel ''anything''. Probably the ultimate expression are the Noise Marines from 40k, who use devastating sonic weapons because anything less loud won't even register to them anymore. In older versions of the models these were modified electric guitars. Their armor is painted in eye-watering pink and black, because, again, nothing else even registers anymore.[[note]]If you're noticing a [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything drug abuse metaphor]], that's not coincidental.[[/note]]

* The god [[EldritchAbomination Tholaghru]] from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' is constantly writhing in as many forms of pain and pleasure as it can get its appendages on. It encourages mortals to fall to demonhood in order to collect more sensations, and its followers would like to share those sensations with you. Neither Tholaghru nor its followers know or care which of those sensations is pain and which is pleasure.
