** ''Videogame/Portal2'' features three different types of gels. Blue Repulsion Gel acts like a trampoline, orange Propulsion Gel causes you to run incredibly fast, and white Conversion Gel acts like a portal surface. Sounds neat, until you discover that these gels were originally meant to be ''diet puddings'', sticking to the digestive tract and either bouncing the food back out the way it came or propelling it through the body so fast there'd be no time to actually digest any of it. It's unclear what Conversion Gel was meant to do, but it has an awful effect on the lungs and has canonically killed a man.
--->'''[[spoiler: Cave Johnson]]:''' First up, Conversion Gel! ''(coughs violently)'' The bean counters told me we could literally not afford to buy seven dollars worth of moon rocks, much less seventy million. Bought em anyway, ground em up, mixed them into a gel! And guess what? Ground-up moon rocks are pure poison. I am deathly ill.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemEchoesShadowsOfValentia'' has Zeke's girlfriend Tatiana, who admits that at least once she forgot the loaves of bread that she was baking for the monks of the monastery she works for and burned them. (The monks at least ate them, however.)

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemEchoesShadowsOfValentia'' has Zeke's girlfriend Tatiana, who 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 monks clerics of the monastery she works for and burned them. (The monks clerics at least ate them, however.)

** Kusuha 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.

* ''LuminousArc2'', judging from [[TheHero Roland's]] reactions, Rina was one, when he's subjected to her cooking in her Intermissions. At one point, she use salt instead of sugar for her cookies. [[spoiler: She's actually a rather tragic case, it's implied she can't learn because cooking necessitates being near fire, which she is deathly afraid of.]]

* ''[[ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'':
** One of the ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' Social Links involves Fuuka [[MissionControl "Tank, I need an exit"]] Yamagishi, who recruits the main character to taste test her food. The level of Courage the protagonist requires for this is literally titled "Badass" -- her cooking is foul enough to [[AnimalsHateHim chase off nearby animals]]. On the other hand, as you hang out with her, her cooking gradually improves. As [[SupremeChef Shinjiro]] points out, Fuuka's failure in cooking lies in her tendency to not prepare in advance and to try to deviate from the recipe without first understanding the basics, and then panic and further compound her mistakes as a result. For instance, when making chocolate truffles, if the recipe asks for one teaspoon of liqueur, she adds ''[[CordonBleughChef a cup]]'' on the basis that [[OvenLogic she wants a bigger portion to share with everyone]]. Which is a moot point, since she mistakenly used ''vinegar''...

*** Three of the main girls have very questionable cooking abilities, ranging from Rise (would be fine if her food wasn't way too spicy), Yukiko (who can make an omelet that, through a process that can only be described as alchemical, has no taste ''at all'') and Chie (just plain awful). Ironically, out of the four females in the main cast, only the {{Bokukko}} Naoto could be considered a competent chef (and even with her help, it took three tries to come up with a cake that was deemed suitable for consumption).
*** When Chie and Yukiko combine their powers, the result is dubbed "Mystery Food X" and manage to take out both the main male leads in one spoonful (''Anime/Persona4TheAnimation'' implies that they put thick starch, three different kinds of pepper, kimchi, and soy milk into it). Mystery Food X returns in the [[VideoGame/Persona4Arena fighting game]] and grabbing it will grant you the Poison status... [[ViolationOfCommonSense and you get a trophy for it too]].
*** 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, and normally takes care of the household despite her age. 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, and looks like a miniature version of the [[http://megamitensei.wikia.com/wiki/Black_Ooze Foul clan Black Ooze]] demon from the main ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' series.]]

** Prior to ''Persona 3'' and ''4'', it's implied that Maya Amano from ''{{VideoGame/Persona 2}}'' is an awful chef to the point that Ulala does most of the cooking. To supplement this, Maya's fridge is loaded with [[TrademarkFavoriteFood canned crab]].

* Katalina from ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'' is constantly trying to provide good food for her crew but is completely oblivious to how awful it is, even [[BigEater Lyria]] and her {{Yandere}} admirer won't eat them. Her dishes have been given descriptions like ominous purple goop, her Valentine's chocolate is a slimy, half-cooked mess and the food's smell either angers monsters or ward them away from the ship. Despite all this, she thinks that if everyone would just try it, they'd know how good it actually is.

The only one who eats it in earnest is [[VideoGame/TalesOfXillia Milla]] and that's only because she views it as a training exercise to test her endurance. Her dishes have been given descriptions like ominous purple goop, her Valentine's chocolate is a slimy, half-cooked mess and the food's smell either angers monsters or ward them away from the ship. Despite ship but despite all this, she thinks this Katalina still somehow believes that if it's great and everyone would just try it, they'd know how good it actually is.should at least have a bite.

* A recurring theme in the ''TalesSeries'' is using cooking as a way to heal after battles. Inevitably, one party member will be a danger to themselves and their teammates the moment they get anywhere near cookware. The fun thing is that every Lethal Chef is lethal for a different reason:
