* In ''EverythingIsIlluminated'', the (obsessive) Collector wants a memento of the field of sunflowers. He walks over to them and, instead of picking a few petals or something, he picks up a harmless, living, grasshopper and seals it in one of his polypockets where, we are forced to assume, it suffocates. He is also incredibly pale.

* Magrat Garlick, in her first appearance in ''Discworld/WyrdSisters'', is the kind of vegetarian who is prone to informing non-veggies how much undigested meat they probably have in their colons. ''Discworld/LordsAndLadies'' balances it out by contrasting her with an absurdly old-fashioned cook who doesn't believe vitamins ''exist''.

Interestingly, the book between those two, ''WitchesAbroad'', doesn't really mention her vegetarianism at all, making her surprisingly unquestioning about the ingredients of all the foreign food she's trying.

* In ''MalcolmInTheMiddle'' , we find out his class is full of these at the Krelboyne picnic. Hal becomes a hero to all the beleagured dads in attendence (who very obviously were not vegetarians) by sneaking in real meat, but chaos ensues when the Krelboynes realize their "tofu" is bleeding. * Dick Solomon became one of these as a CompressedVice on ''ThirdRockFromTheSun'', reverting to his normal meat-eating ways at the end of the episode. Justified by the RuleOfFunny and the fact that [[SmallNameBigEgo Dick's personality is just that extreme]].

* Averted by Karen in ''SBBBrothers''' Sims Big Brother 8. While her interview makes her sound like one, where she states her goal is to introduce one houseguest to veganism or at least vegetarianism, but she doesn't outright say it.

* Britta from {{Community}} is one, as well as [[HypocriticalHumor highly hypocritical]] about it, smugly announcing to the Study Group that she's a vegetarian wile wearing a ''leather jacket.'' * Similarly averted on ''{{Bones}}'' with Temperance Brennan. Her diet change was an outgrowth of one, the pig farm incident at the end of season one that was connected to her mother's death and two, writing in the real life choices of the actress playing her.

* Subverted in {{Hannibal}} by having HateSink Freddie Lounds be the show's vegetarian. Ironically, this leads to her being one of the only main characters [[spoiler:who has not eaten human flesh]]. * ''{{CSI}}'' averts this completely with Sara Sidle. She did complain when Grissom wanted her to clean up his meat experiment, but now they seem to have a good understanding, and she never fell into the stereotypes at all. She does occasionally point things out to someone in the break room, but doesn't get pushy about their choices.
