*** Finally, Richter is quite bad because he's never cooked anything in his life. His first dish was for Emil, which caused the latter to pass out from the horrible taste.

* A recurring theme in the ''TalesSeries''. The fun thing is that every Lethal Chef is lethal for a different reason:
** ''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.
** ''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.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'':
*** Natalia misunderstands basic cooking instructions. Even to the point that a stew she tried to make catches fire.
*** Luke is a close second because he has never cooked for himself and is an ''incredibly'' picky eater. Guy could only comment that Luke's cooking was 'avant-grade'.

* A recurring theme in the ''TalesSeries''.''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:
** ''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 immune to the taste of the food, since he finished his plate fine.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'': Raine has a tendency towards bizarrely experimental food combinations (''"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 lemons. Raine's younger brother Genis is very rarely an optional ingredient a SupremeChef by contrast, since he says he'd never have survived if he had to eat Raine's cooking all the time.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'': Both Luke and Natalia had pampered lifestyles, and never had to cook
for her.

*** Marta only ever cooked for her father, who (being a father) said her cooking was wonderful no matter what. (Though in a break from the normal way this trope works, Marta acknowledges her lack of skill after it is pointed out and makes a sincere effort to get better, becoming a decent cook in the end.)
*** Richter had never cooked before ''at all''.

*** Flynn is a fantastic cook... except he tends to deviate from the ''exact recipe'' and lacks the instincts and sense of taste to compensate, resulting in a RussianRoulette of either extreme tastiness or extreme vileness because no matter what it tastes like, it always looks fantastic. It's worth noting that Flynn's cooking is often beaten out by ''a dog''. A OneNoteChef dog who only makes ''dog food''.
*** 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.

** 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.
