* On ''WhoseLineIsItAnyway'', Ryan Stiles was supposed to be a zombie and attacked Drew Carrey... and then walked away, looking for brain somewhere else.
* 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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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."

* Seen in the Creator/PeterCushing[=/=]Creator/ChristopherLee movie ''Horror Express''. The brainsucking alien finds the crazy monk not worth killing, and eventually the crazy monk starts worshiping the alien (which the alien finds somewhat annoying).

* In [[http://www.dorktower.com/2006/05/05/comics-archive-781/ this]] ''DorkTower'' strip, Igor engages a mind flayer with purple nurples and "the dreaded doom wedgie". Since this effectively proved his character didn't ''have'' a brain to flay, he actually won.

** Inverted with the demon in "The Puppet Show"; Buffy and the Scoobies are realizing that Giles is the target of a brain-eating demon, and become especially worried after remembering that he's very smart.

* The second variant shows up in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', when the Mind Flayer doesn't want to eat Elan's brain. Later, [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0031.html we get to see it picture each of the Order]] [[MeatOVision as a meal]] and it ticks them off one by one. [[StaticCharacter Durkon]] = porridge (filling but bland), [[ActionGirl Haley]] = a sundae (too sweet), [[TokenEvilTeammate Belkar]] = a taco (it'd get heartburn), [[TheFool Elan]] = Diet Coke (next!), [[InsufferableGenius Vaarsuvius]] = a hamburger (getting somewhere) and [[GeniusBruiser Roy]] = a turkey (perfect!). [[ArentYouGoingToRavishMe Vaarsuvius is visibly upset by this.]] (Roy has high stats in intelligence, wisdom and charisma, which makes him a more balanced and attractive meal than Vaarsuvius, who has higher intelligence but not a lot of the other two.)

** The print only prequel volume ''Start of Darkness'', which traces [[StartOfDarkness how Xykon and Redcloak first became villains and teamed up]], has Xykon joking about this trope at one point. When a group of zombies under Xykon's command attack [[GranolaGirl the elf druid Lirian]], they're calling for brains. Xykons cracks that they can look inside Lirian's head if they want, but he doubts they'll find anything, as [[DumbBlonde Lirian is a blonde]] afterall.
