** ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'': Raine has a tendency towards bizarrely experimental food (''"Spicy cake would be a breakthrough!"'').
*** Each character also has a "signature" ingredient that they favor using when they cook, though it's usually an optional thing... Raine's is lemon. And it is very rarely an optional ingredient for her.

** Luca Trulyworth from [[ArTonelico2 the second game]] is a more conventional example. Some of her crimes against food include a dish that knocks out two residents of ''her own Cosmosphere'', two food-based Song Magics (one consisting of flinging food at the enemy, the other a food ''bomb''), a horrendous "Trulyworthit Soup" which still has fish bones and seaweed sticking out of it, and her "Chalonde Trois" which looks somewhat like [[EldritchAbomination something from the mind of Lovecraft]].

* ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse'' has the Supreme Kai of Time. When she offers to cook a banquet for the heroes after the events of the [[Anime/DragonBallGT GT Saga DLC]], Trunks has to warn the PlayerCharacter that her cooking is more destructive than any Shadow Dragon, with Tokitoki flying as far away from the building where the Supreme Kai of Time is cooking, which gives off a menacing glow like the ones possessed warriors give off.

** The ''main character'' can be this if you're not paying attention --which can happen easily enough, since most of the dishes you're asked to prepare are Japanese cuisine which might be unfamiliar to a Western audience. If you mess up, then choose to share your cooking with a school friend during lunch, almost all of them are ''offended'' and call you out on it... except Yukiko, who thinks it's hilarious and actually rewards you with points towards her S.Link.

** In ''[[UpdatedRerelease P4 Golden]]'', poor Nanako tries to make homemade chocolate for her "[[PlayerCharacter Big Bro]]" on valentines day. Normally she averts this trope as she's too young to cook, though she can make eggs sunny-side-up just fine. However, on this endeavor... [[spoiler: she goes to Chie, Yukiko & Rise for pointers, and finishes it before Naoto could help. The resulting concoction is so vile that it puts "Mystery Food X" to shame; it actually appears to inflict the "Fear" status when you eat it.]]

** Also from P4 Golden, Marie shows up to offer her ''own'' Valentine's Day chocolate to the main character just minutes before he runs into Nanako. She has never cooked anything before and she could only use whatever she could find inside the limousine, but still created something that [[spoiler:a) smells through the gift-wrapped box, b) is still moving, c) will melt if you let it, d) will ''run away'' if it melts, d) actually tastes ''normal'' and is incredibly addictive, and e) continues to move in your stomach ''after'' being eaten.

*** Before Flynn was made playable in the PS3 release, Rita held the title of "Worst team chef" because she considers food more complex than "open a banana" to be a needless extravagance and a waste of time.

* Some examples from the ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' series:
** Karen from the Mineral Town saga is one of those, which doesn't stop her from entering the cooking contest every year.
** Maya, the waitress from ''Tree of Tranquility'' knows fine cuisine when she smells it (and really digs [[ThroughHisStomach guys who can cook]]), but she's very bad at making it herself.
** Nami and Flora are both these in DS/Cute. Ann was also a Lethal Chef in 64, but ironically in Back To Nature, and almost every game after that, she's one of the bests chefs in her villiage.

** In ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon64''
Ann was also a Lethal Chef in 64, but ironically in Back To Nature, and almost every game after that, she's one of the bests chefs horrible cook. Ironically in her villiage. ''Mineral Town'' retool she was upgraded to a SupremeChef. All post-''64'' appearances use the latter interpretation.

** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', the player can build a restaurant in their castle, in which a random one of the units will do the honors of [[ThroughHisStomach preparing stat-boosting food for the army.]] While most of them are at least passable chefs, a couple are terrible at it to the point where their cooking can even impact the other charas's stats negatively. Among them are Arthur (absurdly unlucky), Setsuna (too air-headed), Flannel (extremely strange tastes), Rinkah (doesn't understand cooking beyond "Throw something on a fire"), Yuugiri (high-ranked noblewoman, has probably never cooked before) and Felicia (extremely accident prone).
** It seems that this is a RunningGag for avatar characters, as in ''Fates'', the avatar, AKA Corrin, cooks food that literally tastes like steel... yet again. And it seems that they are even worse than the previous two, as they manage to ''burn tea''.

* A dropship conversation in ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' reveals that Hank has cooked grilled canyon eel. This wouldn't be so bad, except for how it was still ''alive'' when served.
