* WesternAnimation/MyGymPartnersAMonkey has this trope exploited in "My Science Project". Adam and Jake [[ObfuscatingStupidity attempt to look dumber than the other]] to convince a rogue machine searching for intelligent hosts to leave them alone.

* In ''WesternAnimation/BigGuyAndRustyTheBoyRobot'', a brain-eating monster begins sucking the intelligence of Quark Industries' scientists. When he goes after Donovan, Quark's PointyHairedBoss[=/=]CorruptCorporateExecutive, both Donovan AND his monkey try to use this trope in order to escape. The monster just shrugs it off, wanting to attack out of dislike. In a later episode, Donovan's nephew gains the same brain-sucking powers, but decides against attacking Donovan. ("I crave nutrition, not empty calories!")
* ''TuffPuppy'': In the ''HalloweenEpisode'', Keswick reanimated some corpses to have zombies for the holiday. He said the zombies would be harmless as long as there were candies for them to eat. Otherwise they'd eat brains. When Keswick commented Dudley would be safe, Dudley proved the point by claiming he didn't understand it.

* A snarky Crime Computer can grace you with a nice "YOU don't have to worry about brain-eating zombies" if you use an item at the wrong place in ''[[VideoGame/MysteryCaseFiles Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove]]''.

* On ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', Glory rejects one of her own minions, who offers up his own brain as emergency nourishment.
-->'''Glory''': "I said a ''brain'', you worthless dirt!"
** She also can't eat vampire brains.

** Another variant has a doctor's brain and a lawyer's brain asks the second person to guess which costs more. Depending on which side is the butt of the joke, the replies are, "Of course, because it has something useful inside." Or, "of course, because it has never been used."
