* In ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'', the Oompa-Loompas' song about Augustus Gloop -- who, having fallen into the Chocolate Room's river, has just been sucked into a pipe headed for a room where a particular variety of fudge is prepared -- claims that while he "will not be harmed...he will be altered quite a bit"...And that's okay, because he was such a brat that nobody liked him anyway, whereas "who could bear or hold a grudge/Against a luscious bit of fudge?" The [[Theatre/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory 2013 stage musical]]'s version of this sequence ("Auf Wiedersehen Augustus Gloop") makes this trope's presence much more explicit ''and cheerier to boot!''

* In ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic: Shadow of Revan'', the player's allies have found a way to discreetly eliminate some enemies, without the BigBad suspecting a thing. The rub is that they need the player to appear to be a fearsome pirate so that the whole thing looks like a gang war. For a Republic player, they decide to embellish the pirate persona's reputation with cannibalism -- to the point that the "Red Hulls" supposedly paint their ships with the blood of their literally butchered victims. Thus leading to a surreal moment when the player arrives and the locals' first reaction is to beg not to be eaten for no readily apparent reason.
-->'''Crier Droid''': If you consider yourself easily frightened or ''especially delicious'', steer clear of the Red Hulls!

* The French series ''ComicBook/LesCrannibales'' is all about this, with the titular family's cannibalism being a pretext for atrocious food-related puns. The victims themselves don't even seem that disturbed by it. The main antagonist is a neighbor who keeps trying to stop them by stealing the body parts they were about to eat (as the police never believe him), keeps getting caught, and has to have the dinner grafted to the corresponding body part taken by the family.
-->'''Surgeon:''' That's funny, your graft smells like oranges.\\

** The meat industry in this verse is treated the same way it's treated in the real world: living beings are bred and cooked for the evolved ones to eat, mostly mentally retarded animals who are even tenderized by their civilized counterparts. The humor comes from how hilariously wrong it is to see people treat this as normal, even if it's also PlayedForDrama by showing how inhumane the process is, regardless of any argument.
** [[spoiler:Zach Braff's death]] is pure comedy-horror personified, because nobody expected it.
