* Papyrus from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' only knows how to cook spaghetti, though that's using a ''very'' generous definition of "knows". [[spoiler:He learned from Undyne, who struggles to make spaghetti without burning her own house down.]]

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemEchoesShadowsOfValentia'' has Zeke's girlfriend Tatiana, who's this mostly out of [[CuteClumsyGirl clumsiness]] rather than lack of actual skill. She admits to Alm that at least once she forgot the loaves of bread that she was baking for the clerics of the monastery she works for and burned them. (The clerics at least ate them, however.)

* El Fuerte from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV''. Interestingly, he's actually a very good cook, but only when he sticks to Mexican dishes. It's when he tries to experiment that things go horribly wrong [[spoiler: as is proven when he mixes chanko stew and borscht, then adds chili peppers and ''chocolate'' to serve to E. Honda and Zangief after the tournament, with [[HilarityEnsues unpleasant results.]]]]

*** 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 characters' stats ''negatively''. Among them are Arthur (absurdly unlucky), Setsuna (too air-headed and a ShelteredAristocrat so she's never cooked before), Keaton (a werewolf [[BizarreTasteInFood with extremely strange tastes]]), Rinkah (doesn't understand cooking beyond "Throw something on a fire"), Reina ([[FemininityFailure not really good at "feminine tasks"]] by her own admission [[spoiler:plus, she's estranged from her noble parents who wanted her to be a traditional bride, cooking included]]), Felicia (extremely accident-prone), Hinoka (a TomboyPrincess who, like Reina, is simply not good at "traditionally girly" things), and Velouria ([[spoiler:Keaton's daughter, taught to cook by ''him'' of all people, and also has Werewolf-like tastes rather than human's[[note]](she claims that the Wolfskins love her cooking, which judging by Keaton's own tastes in food is a quite believable claim)[[/note]] ]]).

*** Yuzu, one of the ''Cipher'' {{canon foreigner}}s, isn't much better. Her ration balls are perfectly nutritious but taste awful, and when her friend Shade suggests that Yuzu adjust the recipe to improve the flavor, she keeps them the exact same but puts a clashing sauce made from oranges on top.

When she gives any of her boyfriends a cake that she baked as a gift, she tells him "Don't you dare complain about the taste!" [[spoiler:If her OlderAndWiser self Selena from ''Fates'' is an indication, however, she improved with time.]]

** And speaking of Kusuha, she also veers into this territory at times because she likes to add ingredients from her dreaded [[GargleBlaster Health Drink]] in her recipes. Other than that she's a decent cook.
** The classic timeline has a Lethal Chef in form of Tytti Noorbuck, [[ElementalPowers one of the heralds of the Elemental Lords]]. The problem lies within her sense of taste, since she loves sweet foods, she'll make anything she cooks to become overly sweet... so sweet you could get your stomach swollen by eating it. In addition, cooking ''is'' her hobby (though in her defense, she's trying to improve)

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'': Arche is just plain bad. In a skit in Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology, it knocked out Kratos, Lloyd and Mormo. The protagonist chokes it all in to avoid the taste. Reid was practically immune to the taste of the food, since he finished his plate fine.

*** In contrast, Emil makes incredibly delicious food. In his normal state, he tends to put extreme effort into presentation. In Ratatosk Mode he puts ''zero'' effort into presentation, but somehow the food is just as tasty.

** The direct sequel ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIIRevenantWings'' reveals that Penelo's cooking is to be feared, though she genuinely tries to get better. Vaan seems to be the only person that likes it, though once she improves he admits he did it by gulping the food down without giving himself a chance to taste it. Several sidequests revolve around getting rare ingredients in an attempt to help Penelo make edible dishes. By the time you complete them all she's actually improved to the point that unbiased parties think she's pretty good.

* In ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag'', Shaun spends his time undercover in Abstergo Entertainment as a barista. One of the employees, Jennifer Tam, disappears for a couple weeks which scares her coworker. Turns out it's cause she got food poisoning that she blames on Shaun's coffee. In ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedSyndicate,'' Rebecca confirms in the logs that he can't make coffee for shit.

* Examples from ''ArTonelico'':
** Aurica from the first game is the Less-Than-Lethal version, as though her cooking ''looks'' strange, but it actually tastes quite good. At least, that's what Lyner said (though BBQ Soda just sounds ''weird'').
** Luca Trulyworth from [[VideoGame/ArTonelicoIIMelodyOfMetafalica 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]].

** In [[TheHero Ragna's]] Gag Reel in ''Centralfiction'' (in which he's wearing the [[LovePotion Spectacles of Eros]] yet again, so [[UnwantedHarem everyone]] tries to woo him ThroughHisStomach), it's revealed that [[BigBad Izanami]] is this as well, but since she's a goddess of death who [[BlueAndOrangeMorality genuinely thinks Death is a great thing that everyone should have]], she makes her food lethal [[InvokedTrope on purpose]] and sabotaged everyone else's food with hers. Also, her LiteralSplitPersonality relation to Noel means even [[SuperSenses Mai]] can't tell their cooking apart.

* From the makers of the ''Tales of'' series is ''VideoGame/TimeAndEternity''. A secondary character named Ricardo makes cakes so bad that taking a bite enables the consumer to ''interact with the dead''.

*** The Avatar, AKA Robin, can flip-flop between this and SupremeChef, though s/he is mostly remembered as a pretty bad one. ([[BigEater Panne and Nah]] are the only ones who straighforwardly likes his/her cooking.) However, if their supports with [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons Nowi]] and [[{{Tsundere}} Severa]] are anything to go by, they ''do'' improve eventually.
