Even great villains need to quench their appetites. In any story, there comes a time when a villain or a dark entity consumes something (human flesh, blood, magic potions, food, etc.) or gives that to someone else. This can happen for many reasons:
- To satisfy his/her appetite for blood.
- To satisfy cravings and addictions.
- To obtain superpowers.
- To turn someone over to the dark side.
- To transform into a more powerful entity.
- To create a disguise.
