[[spoiler: Though this isn't just because Fry is [[TheDitz a bit dim]]; according to "The Day the Earth Stood Stupid", Fry has abnormal brain waves that make him resistant to mind control.]]

* On ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', the third "TreehouseOfHorror" special had a zombie horde clamoring for "Braaaains" inspect Homer's head, then abandon him in disgust. Most ridiculously, the zombie taps Homer on the head and [[HollowSoundingHead a very hollow sound is heard]] before it moves along.

* 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.

* Another brain-sucking alien example in the ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo'' episode "Third Dork from the Sun", where said alien attempts to absorb Johnny's intelligence only to realize there was nothing to absorb, resulting in his brain overloading.

* In one episode of ''Series/ModernFamily'', a zookeeper arrives a the Dunphy house for a birthday party. When an iguana ends up on Luke Dunphy's head, he asks what it eats and is replied with a faux-dramatic "little boys' brains". Luke's sister Alex then snarks that he should be safe.

* 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]] = rice (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.)

* 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).
-->'''Crazy Monk''': Are you going to kill me?
-->'''Brainsucking Alien''': Oh, there's nothing in your head of any use.
