Crime against nature?[edit source]
What actually happens when you're caught cannibalising a body? I've tried it out in front of the slavers in Paradise Falls, but even if I'm right in front of them they don't seem to care (other than asking me if I'm "done playing with that" while I'm dragging the corpse around). 188.8.131.52 06:09, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
Eating a corpse in view of good or neutral characters will turn them hostile and they will attack. --SpellChecker 17:01, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
And since the slavers are evil, they wont turn hostile. - Redmess 22:54, November 3, 2009 (UTC)
- I just helped a wandering NCR trooper kill a couple of fiends, and then ate them while she stared at me from a couple feet away. No reaction whatsoever. Don't know why it lowers karma anyways, they're dead. Get off your soapbox, Bethesda. --Edit-- I ate an NCR trooper in front of her that those fiends had killed, and then she attacked me when I finished. Apparently it's only a 'crime against nature' when you eat their friends, or a positive/neutral character. Cannibalizing fiends should get you high. Just sayin. OfficialJab 14:36, 1 July 2012 (UTC)
This Perk is a complete waste for neutral or good characters. Even "evil" characters won't really benefit from this, as evil characters can just plunder medical shops for stimpaks. By the time you have got this perk, you should have built up enough wealth to be able to pay your medical bills, unless you did something stupid like bought a workbench for your megaton house or a jukebox for your Tenpenny Tower suite. The only reason to get this perk is so that you can brag about it to your friends. " yeah, I found the Andale Cannibals and I made the most ironic kill ever by eating their bodies." Or " I found breadbox in the slave pen but he pissed me off so I ate him." Unless you want to waste your time watching body eating shorts and losing ridiculously low amounts of Karma for a ridiculously low amount of health in the process. This Perk is also a huge bug, as if I were to say, shoot a megaton settler and start eating him, I would be taking damage from the fifty other guys that have started shooting me while I yell at the game to hurry up this five star meal. You are better off with the fast metabolism perk. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk • contribs).

I seems you lose more Karma for stealing something than eating someone. What the hell? Fat Man Spoon 10:30, 26 April 2009 (UTC)
- LOL, seriously. (Even if you steal a Bent Tin Can off the floor!!) Look, you can give Purified Water to a beggar for what, 50 karma? So, like, if you ate EVERYONE in Rivet City, you could just chuck a bottle of water at that grubby dude outside on your way out, and it's all good? Or to laugh at it in another way, with the Lawbringer perk, you get +10 karma for every Finger you collect off an "evil" person.... sooo, eating bad people results in a net gain of 9 karma. Makes PERFECT sense. 22.214.171.124 09:18, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
- Makes sense if you consider that theft is assumed to have living victims. In the end cannibalizing someone is taboo and disrespectful, but they're not getting any more dead.

It's a must for an evil roleplay obv. V.A.T.S. addict 00:40, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
I just use it to enhance the roleplaying component of the game. --M1nt3a 02:02, September 3, 2011 (UTC)
What happens?[edit source]
Exactly what happens with the corpse when you eat it? Does it dissapear?--126.96.36.199 14:56, 12 May 2009 (UTC) Nothing happen to the corpse, but you will not be able to eat it a second time.188.8.131.52 02:16, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
The corpse doesn't even appear altered as in "bite marks"/"chunks missing". V.A.T.S. addict 00:39, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
The Family glitch maybe?[edit source]
I completed blood ties and later on got to level 12 and immediatly got the Cannibal perk. Now the only options I get when talking to Vance are "How are things now." and "I have to go" Is it possible for me to become part of The Family now? No it is not
Censorship (JP Ver.)[edit source]
So I'm playing through the Japanese version of the game, and the Cannibal perk has been renamed 'Mystic Power', furthermore the pipboy image has been edited to remove all the blood stains and body parts. Description also mentions nothing at all about cannibalism. Just thought it'd be interesting to know!

Wow! That is interesting! I think that should be added to the article if someone would confirm it! BOSPalidan 's ROFLCopter goes soi soi soi soi soi 06:49, July 6, 2010 (UTC)
Confirmed in New Vegas[edit source]
- Has anyone tried this is New Vegas hardcore mode? Namely, does it just restore health or is it a source of food as well? Could be less useless in that case, and definitely worth noting one way or the other in the article. 220.127.116.11 16:34, October 28, 2010 (UTC)
Meat of Champions work as intended[edit source]
Please note that the hidden perk Meat of Champions works in game. Screenshots (feel free to use): http://img181.imageshack.us/img181/51/screenshot6h.png http://img585.imageshack.us/img585/7310/screenshot7.png http://img593.imageshack.us/img593/7370/screenshot8.png
