* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': According to Tuuri, Lalli "doesn't really like anything". This is confirmed on-panel by Lalli being quite thin and when stealing food from someone else, only taking the meat out of a sandwich in which it's the only garnish.

A character, usually quite young, dislikes a certain type of food, or more often, a vegetable. In Western culture, it's usually peas, carrots, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, or essentially any vegetable you care to name. In Japanese works, it's carrots or, more commonly, green bell peppers. Oftentimes; it's the vegetables that the creator disliked in their own youth.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' and all the other kids in town refused eat broccoli. Thus only the kids of Townsville were unbrainwashed unlike their parents when the evil alien Broccoloids invaded, though they were helpless against them... till the girls realized they could ''[[ImAHumanitarian eat the]] [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman Broccoloids]]''. In the end all the kids started eating their greens [[SpaceWhaleAesop to ensure that they weren't aliens]].

* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' centered many of its plots around foods that children hate to eat. These include various vegetables, tapioca pudding, etc. Ironically, [[BigEater Numbuh 2]] is probably the least picky when it comes to his eating habits--[[StockYuck]] one of the few things that he doesn't like is anchovies on pizza.

* In ''CitizenShip'', Music/PattiSmith makes the point that poverty practically kills this trope
-->''If you're hungry you're none too particular about what you'll taste!''

* Radio/SarahKennedy got much mileage on her early morning show out of brussels sprouts and her listenership's responses to them. The general opinion was that the great British accompaniment to Christmas dinner, for maximum effect, should be stewed non-stop from around October for service on December 25th.

** Pearl finds the whole ''concept of eating'' revolting, and refuses to entirely. She can usually get away with it since she's a [[SiliconBasedLife Gem]] and [[EatingOptional doesn't actually need to]].

* While most sitcoms will relegate this to a secondary plot, ''LeaveItToBeaver'' once did an entire episode around the title character not eating his Brussels sprouts.

* In ''videogame/Borderlands2'', Tina usually eats only crumpets, a horribly unhealthy diet that has left her NothingButSkinAndBones with ExhaustedEyeBags. Lilith practically has to force-feed her something healthier during the fourth DLC. [[spoiler: (Of course, Tina isn't exactly the sanest member of the cast, justified after being ForcedToWatch her parents murdered.]]

* Kyo in ''FruitsBasket'' hates leeks, to the extent of having to wear a gas mask when he's forced to cook with them.
** Also hates onions and miso, though oddly he's just fine with miso soup.
** This appears to be for a reason; all of those are foods that are potentially lethal to cats, which Kyo is [[InvoluntaryShapeshifting cursed into becoming when weak or hugged by women]].
*** One bit of [[AllThereInTheManual extra]] information included at the end of one of the volumes explains what it is about the textures, tastes, and smells of those foods that Kyo hates.

* Done to the extreme with Kurt Godel, who only ate food cooked by his wife. Justified, since he was paranoid that he would be poisoned. But when his wife was hospitalized, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurt_Godel he starved to death.]]
