* ''Series/DoctorWho'': The Third Doctor, in the middle of a sword fight with The Master, calmly pins his opponent to the wall by holding his sword point to his throat, then calmly eats a sandwich as he remarks about how violent exercise makes him rather famished. During all this he's basically treating the Master like he's little more than an amusing distraction at best.

** A variation is done by Light when he puts on a performance for cameras hidden in his room; while pretending to be focused on studying and munching on a back of chips, he actually writes on a slip of Death Note paper inside the bag, thereby keeping up his murder rate and casting off (some) suspicion.

* In the pilot episode of ''Series/{{Sliders}}'', Professor Arturo reacts to the discover that the group have found themselves in a Communist USA in an AlternateHistory dominated by the USSR by... walking up to a nearby food stand and ordering some sausage. It's lampshaded and justified:
-->'''Quinn:''' Professor, how can you ''eat'' at a time like this?!\\
'''Arturo:''' My stomach has no political preferences.

* Invoked as a kind of subtle 'fuck you' in ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanCurseOfTheBlackPearl''. When negotiating with Captain Barbossa over the command of the Black Pearl, Jack Sparrow picks up a green apple from a basket in the middle of the table and casually begins munching on it while musing out loud. Thing is, Captain Barbossa is only in command of the Pearl because he mutinied against and overthrew Jack, has been cursed by Aztec gold to an existence of living death where he is unable to taste anything, apples are his favourite food, and the current topic of conversation is Jack musing about how, if Barbossa ''hadn't'' mutinied against and overthrew him, Jack would have been captain when they found the gold and would ''also'' have been cursed. So Barbossa has to watch and seethe as this guy he hates eats an apple that Barbossa yearns to taste again while 'casually' discussing about how Barbossa's own actions ended up preventing Jack from being inflicted with the same curse that Barbossa suffers under.

Compare AutopsySnackTime, FruitOfTheLoon, ObsessedWithFood, InappropriateHunger, LongSpeechTeaTime (where an audience is bored) and PassThePopcorn (where they're ''entertained'' by someone else's troubles). Often overlaps with EnemyEatsYourLunch.

* In ''Discworld/MakingMoney'', Vetinari has a conversation with Moist von Lipwig while calmly eating a hard-boiled egg. The attention Vetinari pays to eating the egg only serves to annoy and confuse Moist, since he's already freaked out. (It didn't help that Vetinari mentions that [[AutopsySnackTime a hanging always makes him hungry.]])

* In ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'', Team Rocket has occasionally been distracted by Brock's cooking that they sometimes forget what they were supposed to be doing (running from some angry Breloom in one episode, the usual steal Pikachu scheme in another). It got to the point that Brock decides to [[GenreSavvy exploit this]] in an early DP episode.

* Patrick Jane from ''Series/TheMentalist'' will often make himself a pot of tea or a sandwich using food taken without asking from the kitchen of the person who's murder he's solving (as well of the kitchen of almost every other house he visits over the course of the investigation). Sure, he's paying attention when he eats it, but he has to leave the room (again, without asking) for a few minutes to prepare it.

[[spoiler: Of course, since he investigates ''murders'' one of them inevitably involves poisoning... of the victim's tea. Patrick ends up in the hospital and spends most of the episode hallucinating from side-effects]]
