A person or animal that eats something that is the same species as he, she, or it is, or has attempted to do so. The circumstances that turned a villain into a cannibal vary, ranging from a mental illness to mutation that altered his, her, or its diet. Cannibals are often depicted as being particularly depraved, due to simply devouring a member of his, her, or its own species.
This can also include villains who force or trick others into committing cannibalism (such as Sweet Licks), or attempt to do so.
Editing note: not to be confused with Man-Eaters who are non-human villains who eat humans. Also, do not add animals who eat other, different animals (like a T-Rex eating a Triceratops or a hawk eating a chicken), no matter how anthropomorphic they may be. The latter should go under Predators instead because the animals are still different species.
