* Sam, the main character from LifeOnMars, is a 2006 modern police officer transported to 1973, where cops are more likely to punch you in the gut than read you your rights. The fact that Sam is an excellent cook is used as an example of his modern values, which surprise the 1970s populace, to whom the idea of a man who is not a professional chef being able to cook is pretty strange.

* "Ordinary" (or more ordinary than the following examples at least) people who are skilled in normal combat and mundane, if excellent cookery; one or the other tends to be his day job. If the day job is fighting (e.g. military, police work) being a cook may show the character has a sensitive side (sometimes a case of RealMenWearPink); if cooking is the day job, they may be leading a double life of hidden {{Badass}}. Or, they might be a chef for an army or suchlike, where they do both at the same time. In this form, may overlap with the AlmightyJanitor.

A LethalChef is someone whose cooking is so terrible that it could fall under the Geneva Convention as an inhumane weapon. A SupremeChef is a superb cook, particularly the kind that participate in televised {{Cooking Duel}}s where [[IronChef "every battle, reputations are put on the line." ]]

* The Chairman of ''[[IronChef Iron Chef America]]'', played by Mark Dacascos, is a black belt (both in character and in Real Life), and isn't shy about showing moves off in Kitchen Stadium. While it's not explicitly said that he cooks himself, he's a gourmand, and given the trope's namesake, [[RuleOfCool he ought to count]].
* The original ''IronChef'' has at least two of these as challengers. One a former Sumo turned chef after a knee injury forced him to quit and another who was a professional chef who also competed at the national level in some form of martial arts.

** The Courier can become this as well with high "Survival" skills, letting them cook Philippe's Brahmin Wellington and the Wasteland Omelet, which needs a [[DemonicSpider Deathclaw]] egg to make, something that can be found in Sloan's Quarry Junction, the Deathclaw promontory, Dead Wind Cavern (all of which are Deathclaw broods) and on dead dathclaws.

** The biggest example in the series, and the one who provides the page quote, is Sanji, the archetypal "ordinary" Fighting Cook. [[ExtremityExtremist He fights with his feet]] to save his cooking hands from damage and considers a Chef of Iron Type 2 or 3 to be a personal insult (due to almost dying of starvation as a child, he [[BerserkButton REALLY hates it when people waste food]], or uses cooking instruments for things that aren't food).
