** Subverted in ''VisualNovel/ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'': it looks like [[spoiler: Vera Misham [[SelfMadeOrphan killed her father Drew]] by putting poison in his coffee]]... but in reality, [[spoiler: ''Kristoph Gavin'' poisoned a stamp that Drew licked few minutes before having the supposedly fatal drink]]. And later [[spoiler: he poisons Vera herself - but rather than lacing her food with anything, he uses ''her nail polish'', knowing that she has the habit of biting her nails when nervous.]]

* In ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'', a high biology grade lets Yandere-chan identify poisons which she can swipe and slip into a student's lunch. This allows her to [[MurderTheHypotenuse eliminate rivals]] without drawing suspicion upon herself.

* In ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'', a high biology grade lets Yandere-chan identify poisons which she can swipe and slip into a student's lunch. This allows her to [[MurderTheHypotenuse eliminate rivals]] without drawing suspicion upon herself. However, if Senpai witnesses the death, particularly if the rival's his childhood friend or sister, his sanity will take a huge hit. She can also slip an emetic poison into either the rival's lunch to make her sick and get her alone to murder her out of Senpai's sight, or into ''Senpai's'' lunch to make ''him'' sick and sabotage his budding relationship with the rival.

* In the WhateleyUniverse Jobe does this to three guys who just beat the snot out of him (because he won a sparring match against one of them). He puts a bio-weapon in their food and blinds them for several days. This DisproportionateRetribution cycle just gets worse.

** In [[http://whateleyacademy.net/index.php/content-menu/stories/2-unexpected-consequences Billie's origin story]], her little brother Thad dosed her with a chemical by mixing it into some chocolate, and the chemical triggered a deadly (possibly even fatal, from a certain point of view) burnout, all over a minor slight.

* At the climactic Elstyn family meeting in ''[[AuntDimity Aunt Dimity Takes a Holiday]]'', only Simon, the recipient of the threatening notes, takes a cup of tea offered by the maid. That maid is revealed to be [[spoiler: Derek's insane former nanny, who targeted Simon in the belief that he was trying to take Derek's inheritance]]. She says of Simon: "I tried to warn him, but he wouldn't listen. Won't listen must be made to listen." Then she audibly whispers to Derek: ''"Make him drink his tea...."'' After she leaves the room, an Inspector from Scotland Yard asks everyone to avoid touching the teacup, since the police intend to have it analysed.

** When [[spoiler:Princess Charlotte de Orleans aka]] Tabitha was younger, she was at a party with her family where a strange man gave her a glass of wine. Tabitha's mother, meanwhile, saw the man smirk as he walked away. She immediately recognized a potion in the wine and took the glass Tabitha held; [[HeroicSacrifice she drank the potion in order to save Tabitha, and became mentally ill as a consrquence]]. [[spoiler:She regained sanity at the end thanks to an antidote, though.]]

* In ''Manga/MythicalDetectiveLokiRagnarok'' Skuld tries to do this to Loki on two occasions, and fails miserably both times (in one incident, the person she brainwashed into delivering the poisoned food proceeded to explain what the food had been doped with immediately after delivery). She wasn't very good at assassination - [[InLoveWithTheMark her heart just wasn't into it]].

** It's later revealed that [[spoiler: Sakurako, who heavily resents her father for [[MadwomanInTheAttic locking her away]], convinced [[MasterPoisoner Katsuragi]] to slowly poison Lord Saiki by slipping him little bits of poison in his food. Had Katsuragi [[KarmicDeath not gotten his "just desserts" at the hands of Souma and his own wife Asayo]], the old man would've eventually died of both poisoning and his already present bad health.]]
** Subverted at some point: Sakurako ties up Masataka to a chair and [[ForceFeeding force feeds him]], with Masataka expecting her to have slipped stuff in it again... but it's perfectly untouched food, and she made him believe it was tampered with [[ForTheEvulz to bully him.]]

** In the first anime special, [[spoiler: Geese forces his sort-of protegé Lily to give Terry a bottle of poisoned wine. [[BrokenBird Lily]], [[HighHeelFaceTurn who has fallen for Terry]] and feels ''terrible'' because Geese used her to kill Terry and Andy's father, cannot bring herself to let Terry fall in the trap and stops him from consuming it. Then she explains what happened and gives him AnguishedDeclarationOfLove.]]
** In the Motion Picture, [[spoiler: Terry and Joe drink wine laced with sleeping drugs [[BadassInDistress and are completely indefense]] when Panni and Hauer attack. Mai and Andy are still conscious, though, [[BattleCouple and they decide to fight back]]...]]+

The non-lethal version of food tampering would be putting a love potion, sleeping potion/drug, etc. in food or more commonly, drinks; also known as SlippingAMickey. Another less fatal prank is switching the victim's usual drink with BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce or GargleBlaster. A LaxativePrank is also fairly common. Well-intentioned tampering can also administer a remedy to a patient either unaware of their ailment or unwilling to take the cure. Attempting to do this to several different people at once can overlap with OneDoseFitsAll.
