Im A Humanitarian / Fan Works

Go To

  • Ron in Harry Potter and the Portrait of What Looked Like a Large Pile of Ash, apparently. One of the first, and most oft-quoted sentences is: "He saw Harry and immediately began to eat Hermione's family." Harry is later seen dipping Hermione in hot sauce, "hungrier than ever". He's at it again in the sequel Harry Potter And The Rest Of The Sentence, taking "a deep bite out of Hermione's head".
  • Many members of the dezban species (post Great War) feast on the flesh of their fallen soldiers, comrades that have antagonized them, and their enemies in the Mass Effect fanfic The Council Era.

  • Being a Snake Person, the titular character of the Tale of Solaron has shades of this. While he hasn't eaten anyone yet, he often responds to the obnoxious rogue by threatening to eat him. Fans of the story speculate that Solaron is entirely capable of swallowing a full grown human whole.
  • My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic:
    • While the characters aren't human, anyone who knows about My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic knows about Cupcakes, even if they never read it. The titular cupcakes have ponies that an insane Pinkie tortured to death in her basement as an ingredient.
    • Likewise in Fallout: Equestria, the ponies of Arbu turn out to be cannibals. After finding out, Littlepip doesn't take it well.
    • In another example, Pages Of Harmony, Rainbow Dash becomes a self-cannibal when her sense of loyalty is completely warped as a result of Twilight extracting her Element. She also takes a bite out of Pinkie's hoof in their Afterlife Antechamber to emphasize the fact that they can still feel pain.

    • General Esteem from The Immortal Game is a hardcore Social Darwinist to such a degree that he considers anyone or anything weaker than himself to be nothing but food. Including baby dragons. note 
  • In the Robotech fanfic Marque and Reprisal'', the main characters encounter a band of cannibals in the Sudd (a swamp along the Nile River in eastern Africa)
  • Null Metal Alchemist plays with this, with Ed Elric declaring his intention to eat various characters, either to claim their powers for himself (like Father Cornello in Liore) or as a form of revenge (Shou Tucker).
    • As of Episode 9, he hasn't actually eaten anyone.
  • The monitor lizards from What Lies Beyond the Walls. Nearly all of them feast on other beasts for food, and some of them (such as Ulwort) will go as far as eating other monitor lizards just because they can.
  • In Hivefled, it's mentioned that baby trolls hatch in batches of millions at a time and if they all survived the planet would be stripped bare, so they've become a staple food source for older trolls. Adult trolls also aren't too bothered about eating each other.

  • Queen of Shadows: General Tsume and his tribe enjoy eating human slaves (a little too much in the opinions of the other Oni), and Tsume himself is apparently not above eating other Shadowkhan (but only with the permission of the Queen).
  • In the Monsters, Inc. fan fiction Monstrous: Suel hunts humans for their fear because that's what he eats, but he eats them because it's fun.
  • Young Justice: Darkness Falls: King Shark is unapologetically a cannibal. Then again, being an underwater humanoid, his cases aren't quite the same, though since he ate atlanteans, it still counts. His cannibalism is actually responsible for the reason why we never saw Ocean Master in season 2.
  • From Another Note, Beyond Birthday has this reputation among the fandom, probably because In-Universe he took his second-to- last victim's left arm away from the crime scene for unknown reasons. (The story itself never says he isn't a cannibal, but it never says that he is, either.)
  • Ashley McFly/Leather Ashes appears at the end of episode 48 of Pretty Cure Perfume Preppy, chowing down on a bit of one of her victims' corpses.
  • The vocaloid fanfic Rotting Camellias features Kaito, who is very much implied to be a cannibal. He has sharp teeth, and his cage is often littered with unidentifiable bones and meat. He launches himself at anyone who gets to close, and there are a few comments about him biting people.
  • Children of an Elder God features The Deep Ones, a race of man-eating Fish People.
  • In the Adopted Displaced story, Dressed To Steal, this is revealed to be what Clockwerk did to Sly's father.
  • In the Kim Possible fanfic ''Dead Man Switch, the Lorwardians don't just behead 15 teenage girls each year, they also feast on their headless bodies.
  • In The Undertale fic On The Edge Of A Knife, Dr. Gaster shows Wander and Sara a glimpse of what the Chosen are like. One woman, the Yellow Chosen, casually bites and eats the head of a young child who brought her a serving of food mere seconds after she ate the offering. From the way the others around her react in dragging the headless body away, this was not new.
  • In the YouTube channel Autistic Communist, Natsuki becomes one in the appropriately mentioned video "Natsuki becomes a cannibal." After being made to go without food for three days by her father, Natsuki lures MC into the closet of the literature club, kills and cannibalizes his left thigh after cooking it, and also kills her father with the same knife.
    • Drechenaux takes a similar approach to Autistic Communist's video, but in this version, she is interested in keeping Yuri alive so she could use her as her own personal cow for years.
  • This is used non-maliciously in Little Fires. It's mentioned that mother cats will eat their young in cases of extreme stress. This is seen sympathetically by other Clan cats and they don't scorn the mother for cannibalism.
  • Harbinger (Finmonster) (Danny Phantom, ParaNorman): In this universe, the Lunch Lady was a human lunch lady by the name of Rhody O'Brian, who killed several students and fed them to the others as "mystery meat", and was caught chewing on an arm when they figured out what she was doing. When she's summoned back, the group has to stop her from cooking the school janitor.
  • In Coveralls, Mulder likes eating human flesh.
  • In Heritage of the Wolf, Devil, Wilson, and Cookie try to rape and kill Jenna. They threaten to cannibalize her as well.
  • In The Butcher Bird, both the main character, Kaneki and his 'brother' C are ghouls, and thus have to eat human flesh to survive. The former despises it, while the latter sees humans not part of his crew as prey.
