** Shortly into the last third of the manga series, Akane is capable of cooking a decent, tasty curry, which sends the entire family into shock. However, later in that same story, she unwittingly uses a magical water that is capable of healing all wounds, and makes her soup incredibly delicious. She puts her faith in this water, so when it runs out, her rice cakes are once again potent enough to knock out a grown man.

** In a manga story about "love-predicting mochi", Akane buys magical ingredients for rice mochi that are supposed to mark the cook's One True Love with cherry blossom petals on their face (or a big, angry X if they're not meant to be). While the magic apparently still works, they're still terrible enough that the first instinct of anyone who eats them is to choke and smack their head with their hands as hard as possible, leading to confusion when Ryoga's hooves as a piglet are shaped exactly like cherry blossom petals.

* Arianna of ''LightNovel/{{Campione}}'' is noted to have two failings as a [[{{Meido}} maid]]: [[DrivesLikeCrazy She cannot drive]] and [[LethalChef she can't cook stews]]. Any other type of food she can prepare to perfections, but her stews and soups taste so bizarre they're impossible to describe.

** Kimihito is clearly the only character who ''can'' cook, but most of the others either aren't interested in cooking, don't know how to cook, or serve up something bland and uninteresting. Miia, however, is firmly in lethal chef territory, with a bad habit of cooking fish skeletons into every dish. While it's meant to be justified since her species has a poor sense of taste and can't know how bad her cooking is - one notorious meal she served up knocked someone unconscious through smell alone. She also has a tendency to toss in ingredients just because they look or sound similar to what she's making: she tried making white rice and added white onion, white fish, and white chocolate to feed to Kimihito when he got sick. Fortunately for him, [[ExtremeOmnivore Suu]] ate it before Miia got the chance.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'': Luffy wastes a whole week worth of food supplies into a giant, uneadible soup of rotten food, putting him and his friends into the danger of starvation since they are in the middle of the sea.

* Risa from ''{{DNAngel}}'' is a terrible cook, however, Takeshi doesn't hesitate to tell her so. He also tells her that she'll never improve if she takes advantage of a nice guy like Daisuke, who'll only eat her food to spare her feelings.

* Inner Moka (but not Outer Moka) in ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' is this. Her attempts to handle common kitchen utensils were incredibly dangerous (to her), and the pie she attempted to make appeared to be alive and hostile. Her second attempt, with every other girl in Tsukune's harem helping, made an edible (if slightly burned) pumpkin pie, at the expense of destroying the kitchen and rendering all the other girls unconscious. Her normal cooking is so disastrous that it can send a full blood vampire to the hospital with a single bite.

* Lum in ''Manga/UruseiYatsura''. There's nothing technically ''wrong'' with her cooking, it's just that she tends to overuse the spices to make it taste like [[AlienLunch the food on her home planet]] (and by alien standards, she's actually a ''SupremeChef''). She comments that earth made food is completely flavorless and enjoys drinking Tabasco sauce straight out of the bottle. Also, candy from her home planet causes earth creatures to grow into giant monsters and she forbids Ten from giving it to earth creatures (a warning which he ignores). Despite all her observations she manages to remain oblivious to the issue, probably due to rule of funny. It should also be noted that once, in the manga, Lum's attempts at cooking on Earth opened a portal in the Moroboshi kitchen, from which miniature space fleets erupt and begin to do battle. And once, in the {{OVA}}, Ataru is turned into a werewolf by her food.

* ''Manga/BlackButler'' has Bard, whose idea of cooking usually involves ''flamethrowers'', meaning there's a RunningGag of Sebastian having to do damage control. Though during the [[TournamentArc cricket tournament]], he actually weaponizes this, switching the meat pie Bard brought along for the rest of the Phantomhive household with one meant for the opposing team, giving them food poisoning and getting them disqualified.

* ''ChronoCrusade'''s Rosette Christopher is one of these. As a child she baked a batch of cookies so bad it caused Chrono to foam at the mouth. She later improved (she was accepted as cook in public kitchen, even Chrono says that when her soup looks horrible, the taste is decent).
* The "looks horrible, tastes fine" variant occurs in ''{{The Law of Ueki}}'': while Mori Ai's cooking looks unappetizing (it seems to contain live, squirming purple octopus tentacles), it actually tastes quite good and doesn't have any ill effects on the eater.
* Tsukamoto Tenma and Sawachika Eri from ''SchoolRumble'' qualify. Their rice balls led to ... bad things.
* ''KyouranKazokuNikki''

** Note that her cooking isn't actually bad, it's just that she uses a lot of some brand of ketchup? that her brother liked when he was a kid. As a result it has a taste probably fit for a child but not too appealing for an adult.
