* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Lisa tries to convince everyone not to eat meat at Homer's barbeque and eventually throws away the roasted pig. At the end of that episode, Lisa learns from [[PaulMcCartney Paul]] and Linda [=McCartney=] not to be judgemental about non-vegetarians, after which she mostly settles down -- but [[AesopAmnesia it doesn't stop her occasionally lapsing into aggression in later episodes]], [[RuleOfFunny mostly as jokes]].

* In a recent issue of ''ComicBook/SpiderWoman'', Jessica Drew discovered that an EvilChef in a Canadian ski lodge was [[ImAHumanitarian serving human flesh to his diners]], and played Straw Vegetarian to stop people from eating; knocking bits of food out of their mouths and shouting things like "MEAT IS MURDER!" Her actions in this case were justified in that, in the Marvel Universe, anyone who eats human flesh in the Canadian Woods turns into a {{Wendigo}}, and the chef was intentionally attempting to turn all of his unknowing patrons into Wendigos.

Whiny, pale, and (possibly) intent on eliminating the entire human race to make way for fluffy bunnies, the Hollywood Vegetarian is a thinly-veiled [[TheWarOnStraw Strawman]] who is desperate for a bacon sarnie or would really like meat "if they just tried it". In some works, vegetarians or vegans are also shown arrogantly forcing their meat eating family and friends to stop eating meat, often referring to them as [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman murderers]]. More often than not, no-one likes folks like this, often saying under their breaths, "Can't I have just one meal in peace?"

* Very pale
* [[WhatMeasureIsANonBadass Very weak]]
** Note on the latter two: Vegetarianism isn't automatically healthier. There's the phenomenon of "pudding vegetarians" who mostly eat sweets and processed food, which is rather one-sided and more unhealthy than what Joe Average eats.

* ''ComicBook/ThargsFutureShocks'': Parodied by the "Vegetable Liberation Front", who raid grocery stores to free 'enslaved vegetables'. They only eat edible rocks, because eating fruit or vegetables is wrong. One guy notes that they might get a bad rep with the "Mineral Liberation Front", but his partner says that doesn't matter because most of them have already died of starvation.

to:

* ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'': The Vulcans criticize humans who eat meat whenever they have the opportunity. For instance, one episode featured a group of Vulcans stranded in a remote area and two of them preferred to starve rather than eat an animal to survive.

* In ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', goth girl Sam tries to get meat banned from the school café in favour of her parody vegetarian diet of turf (yes turf, as in grass) - the result is [[MeatVersusVeggies mass protests from both sides]]. It's played for laughs, however, and is an AffectionateParody (Her opposite, Tucker, is utterly meat-obsessed).
